Thank you for alerting us, Kaljaia. For now, please don't touch them, so that we can analyze them. Any other information on how you may have acquired them is appreciated. :)
Apparel on dragon after removal
Jun 12, 2013, 11:36:52
Forum Post | Bug Report Forums | By Xhaztol

3888_350.png


I added the scarf and then decided to remove it and added it to another dragon instead, but as you can see the scarf is still on Runner. It isn't showing in the apparel box and it hasn't duplicated the item or anything, it's just the image didn't update properly.

This is a cache issue. Equipping another piece of apparel on this dragon and removing it will likely work to refresh the image properly. :)
Unable to equip ability stone

Forum Post | Bug Report Forums | By Xhaztol
I hope the post bumps this...I'm having a similar issue with an ability stone.

I'm trying to equip Pestilent Slash to Milkshakes. Required level is 5, I only have me in my Hoard, and Milkshakes is level 6.

I've included a couple screen shots.

@Speedie:
You're trying to put Pestilent Slash into an Augment stone slot, which will not work because it's an ability.
Progenitor update?

"Exalt your progenitor dragons:
We have listened, and you are now able to exalt your progenitor dragons if you do not wish to keep them! To avoid exploitation, exalting a progenitor will not provide you with treasure or count towards Flight Dominance. Progenitor dragons will still be unable to be traded or sold on the Auction House."

Does this mean we get a new progenitor after we exalt the old, or... I guess I don't see how this could be exploited? *headscratch*

Valid question! You do not receive a new progenitor.

The decision to not allow it to be traded/sold or count for credit is to discourage people from violating our Terms of Service by making several accounts, and moving starter dragons elsewhere.

Exalt your progenitor dragons:
We have listened, and you are now able to exalt your progenitor dragons if you do not wish to keep them! To avoid exploitation, exalting a progenitor will not provide you with treasure or count towards Flight Dominance. Progenitor dragons will still be unable to be traded or sold on the Auction House.

We have added sorting options to the Auction House:
You can now sort auctions by their expiration time or by their post price in both an ascending and descending fashion. In order to sort by one currency or another, simply place a '1' in either the gem or treasure field, then hit Search prior to sorting.

Lore Update:
The Ridgeback article is up in the encyclopedia. Click here to read about the great borrowers of the shifting expanse.

Read more about the updates by clicking here.

We have made several performance optimizations and changes to HTML5 features. The following changes were made:
  • Jigsaw: Connected piece edges no longer disappear. Although it was prettier, this aesthetic caused huge performance decreases and has been removed.
  • Coliseum: Many of the freezing/hanging problems have been fixed on the server end. Some others would crop up when the "Fight On!" button was pressed rapidly, resulting in multiple battles being generated. This has been corrected.

The following abilities and mechanics have been adjusted in Coliseum:
  • The damage of elemental slash abilities has been increased.
  • The potency of Aid's healing amount has been increased.
  • Clobber and Guard are now benefiting from a dragon's DEF attribute; our hope is that this will make tank dragons more interesting.
  • Agility has been rebalanced; critical hits and dodges are not occurring as often at higher levels.

Misc Fixes:
  • Various typos were corrected across the site.
  • The Runestones of the Arcanist background image was updated to use elemental runes.
  • The registration form was having issues with registrations that had an apostrophe or hypen in the first or last name. This issue has been resolved.
  • Battlestones purchased from the marketplace were not stacking. This issue has been resolved.

Beta Testers:
Your beta-thank-you gift codes are now in the mail. They should be sent to the e-mail address you had registered on-site during closed beta. (Be sure to check your inbox AND spam folder for the message!)
New auction sorting is great :)
Jun 12, 2013, 03:11:02
Just wanted to post to say thanks for the ability to sort auctions by price, makes things a lot easier! :)
A question though, is it eventually going to be possible to sort prices into treasure and gem as well, like you can for the marketplace? I know people might want to be able to see both, so maybe some sort of toggle?
Anyway, great improvement, thanks!

Set the search to 1 gem or 1 treasure for the minimum. This will limit you to treasure or gems.

You can use gems to unlock additional apparel slots. That's about it for account upgrades.

Thanks, I'm so happy you like our site!

The bestiary details the familiars that you have collected. Each of the monsters has a chance to drop a collectable copy of itself.

An enemies encountered bestiary is something we'd like to tackle down the road though. :-)

Yep. In fact, there can be five. I don't think any mobs that large in that area, though.

The possibilities go far beyond that I'm afraid.

Forum Post | Help Center | By Xhaztol
Hi guys!
So I looked up the page for Elemental Holidays and saw the following sentence:
"The Festive Favors shop deals in holiday currency only, which can be acquired by gathering items in the zone of the element currently being celebrated."
So I started gathering items from the light area, but I didn't get any message that I found some Sand Dollars.
My question is, do you only get Giant Sand Dollars when the celebration started (in the last week of the month) or did I actually get some Sand Dollars, just no notification and no place to look it up?
Thanks in advance. :)

Hi, Ganemi -

The Brightshine Jubilee is actually not set to start until the end of this month, so holiday items will not appear in your gathering turns. The site's main banner will change to let you know when the celebrating has begun, and we will be making an announcement on the front page. :)

Iridescent and shimmer on black, white, and grey were the worst. They have no natural hue to them, so making them iridescent was such a pain in the butt.

Energy Bonus Missing?
Jun 12, 2013, 00:09:46
Forum Post | Help Center | By Undel
The blue bar under your clan's energy bar should keep track of how many days you've had them well-fed. If it is not completely blue, something happened.

Energy loss in the coliseum does count. It's a bit less drastic later in the game's life because you may have a lair of 50 dragons, while only 3 are getting hurt in the coliseum, so the overall clan energy doesn't budge much.

But if you lose multiple times with your only two dragons, it is very easy to dip below 80%

Dragons with attached skins, apparel, familiars, or who are currently sitting on a nest are not eligible to be auctioned. :-) If you're wondering why a dragon is missing on your AH window, this is why!
New Jigsaw Layout
Jun 11, 2013, 23:57:05
The change (while not pretty) was made to increase performance. A lot of folks with mobile devices, other browers, or lower end computers had issues with jigsaw previously. This change makes it so that it's much less stressful on a computer to run the game.

Possible Set Price Guys?
Jun 11, 2013, 20:49:52
As a quick note, crafting is not in game. We have stated its something we'd like to do, but its not ANYThing I would hold your breath on or already be saving for. :-)

A strategy I like to do is to keep all stacks of things I see Swip request. Then for everything else (food, materials, ect.) I like to keep 3 of each in my hoard and I vendor the rest with the sell button. THen you have the item on hand if Crim wants it, but you can sell your extras!


I doubt hatchlings will ever go down to 2k, but I do get what you are saying.

They did in closed beta. WE're in the game's early life. Figure that your two dragons can lay a nest every 15 days and get 1-5 babies. After those 15 days roll around, they can do it again... and the babies can too. Repeat over the course of 2 months and the dragon population will climb rather quickly!

They won't go much below 2K though. The exaltation system ensures that. :-)
