Two new eye types are introduced alongside changes to the eye system.





Bright, Soft Eyes
Bright and Pastel are two new, natural eye types that can now appear on new hatchlings. These types are less common than rare eyes, but more common than goat, faceted, multi-gaze, or primal eye types.

Galore has a couple of clanbound gift vials of these beautiful eyes for each clan until May 10th at 9:00 server time. Be sure to pick them up from Galore before then!






Natural Eye Vials
As of this update, Eye Vials for the following natural eye types now have a chance to stock in the treasure marketplace: Uncommon, Unusual, Rare, Bright, Pastel, Goat, Faceted, Multi-Gaze, and Primal.

[center]Super happy to have this! I've always been a little stingy when it comes to dragon prices, so specialty eyes were *usually* out of my willing range. In any case, I think the accessibility this brings to what is essentially the main focus of the game is going to be a huge plus to casual players who cant afford to fork over $$ for gems. (also, 1:1000 anyone? It's so simple and easy [emoji=wildclaw star size=1] To anyone who thinks their dragons are worthless now, I promise you they are not! If they're something you enjoy that you put time and effort into, they'll always have worth =) Also??? On a different note,, bright and pastel eyes?????? are so good. Especially with ice eyes omg [emoji=familiar heart size=1] [img]https://www1.flightrising.com/dgen/preview/dragon?age=0&body=2&bodygene=0&breed=7&element=6&eyetype=12&gender=0&tert=2&tertgene=0&winggene=0&wings=2&auth=336131d2e81e86f1b6afd1b3ef2fe2d479fc119b&dummyext=prev.png[/img] [img]https://www1.flightrising.com/dgen/preview/dragon?age=0&body=2&bodygene=0&breed=7&element=6&eyetype=13&gender=0&tert=2&tertgene=0&winggene=0&wings=2&auth=aba3dd62098a92a5a9db6b12fc04dd052f00dcb7&dummyext=prev.png[/img] [url=https://discord.gg/dqUHXtGgp7][img]https://i.ibb.co/309b63N/The-Dragon-s-Keep-DISCORD.png[/img][/url][/center]
