I noticed that in this post you said that server migration will start at 6:00 site time, while in the site status it's posted as 9:00 start time. Typo?

Site Status has been updated to reflect the correct time: 06:00 server time! Thank you!

Upcoming Server Migration
Dec 01, 2020, 16:40:44
We've got some exciting news to share with you! Over the next week, and ahead of the Frigidfin Expedition and Night of the Nocturne events, we're upgrading our servers!

Some of you might remember the last time the site had to transfer to new hardware. That was due to our current host acquiring our original host. We had a limited amount of time to prep and the transfer had to happen on the host company's schedule. This time we're upgrading our hardware and it's happening on our schedule. What this means for you is that instead of us taking the Flight Rising site down for an entire day (or days!), this migration will happen over the course of multiple maintenance periods.

Some important points to keep in mind as we move forward with the transfer:
  1. We're moving the Flight Rising website to new server hardware.
  2. This hardware has better specifications for Flight Rising's infrastructure needs.
  3. This will happen over a series of maintenances to prevent taking the site down for entire day(s).
  4. Some maintenances will be of an indeterminate length.
  5. We're doing this over a period of time instead of all at once, because we can.
  6. Shortly before and for a short while after each maintenance, gem purchases will be disabled to avoid gem delivery issues or dropped purchases.
  7. The first maintenance will start on Thursday December 3rd at 06:00 server time.
  8. The second migration maintenance will be on Monday December 7th at 06:00 server time.

If another maintenance is needed, it will be on either Tuesday the 8th or Wednesday the 9th ahead of the mini-holiday. Should a migration maintenance be needed after that—barring an urgent or emergency issue—it will happen in between the Frigidfin Expedition and Night of the Nocturne.

We'll keep you updated on the progress of the server migration as we go. Thank you for your patience while we work to get the site up, over, and running on the improved hardware!

*not in general, the title limit was too short.

What's the most stereotypical *your flight* thing you've done?

I'm in wind, the most stereotypical windy thing I've ever done was forgetting I had to pack for my trip to the other side of the globe until an hour before I had to leave.

Oh for your flight.

I was going to say "have nightmares of Facebook loading wheels on the brand page" but that's more a general Flight Rising thing for me, not specific to a flight.

The harsh drop off kinda gives it the finality of being taken away never to be heard from again. I prefer it.

The thing is - they're not just taking you *away*

By hypnotizing you, they're taking you as well. You're here, but you're still enthralled. It's figurative AND literal, while the edit is just literal.

I can confirm the A/A/B convention and its disruptive harshness is intentional. It's not meant to be a standard nursery rhyme.

That being said, @MegaAbsols, thank you for your feedback. It means a lot to hear you enjoyed it.

We have done our best to track down the Veilspun dragons that got the 25 day breeding cooldown instead of the 20, even those that used a Swiftbrood Boon. I believe the dragons you both linked to are correct now. Let me know if something still looks off. Thanks!

I couldn't resist booning the nest and the hatchlings are so adorable. Is it just me or doe the hatchling's head looks like a my little pony?

But we're trying to be transparent with fixes! (It's fixed for a second time, but may take a moment to populate!)

Regarding shell and web, the gene is correct.
If the files for web/shell are fine can we please have some clarification on why the gene is so different for abyss compared to other colors? It's clearly missing some of the pattern that the gene comes with. Can we get this updated in or?

It's not right guys. Colors or otherwise there are markings missing.

The markings are there, they are a similar color which creates the visual effect. They match up with the color swatches our artist sent in, and we rather like the effect! So not an error, but definitely a more wild swatch choice!

Corrections have gone in for the Veilspun skin PSD that should resolve reports of file corruption. In addition, the female skin file now has the correct mane art. If you are working on a skin using the female file, please redownload the template.

...Why an ancient, though?
I wonder if we'll ever truly see another breed again

I'm glad that you're passionate for more modern breeds! We are still working on modern breeds. Modern breeds take multiple years to produce due to all the apparel that needs to be hand drawn to fit them. Ancient breeds are a way to enjoy new dragon species at a more regular rate. We have an artist who is dedicated purely to working on modern apparel, and it's something that we are still going to add more of in the future. In the meantime, perhaps you will enjoy an ancient - if not, it's not really slowing things as our gene and apparel artists are often different!

Regarding shell and web, the gene is correct.

Regarding constellation and starmap, the female veilspun has incorrect swirl opacity, but the male and hatchling are correct. We will ge the fixes for her in soon!

Hi folks, on the whole the discussion here has been constructive, but a quick reminder:

If someone feels upset, that's valid. If someone doesn't feel upset, that's valid, too. It's not necessary to target another player—this includes passive-aggressive language/tone—just because you disagree. Keep it constructive. Thank you!

@Phenri, this might be due to the massive internet hug our servers are getting right now but I've notified the team that there might be an issue with the Veilspun PSDs.

Has anyone noticed the weird clipping with Multi-Gaze? Is this something that can/will be fixed?



Sadly the line breaking terts and line breaking eyes sometimes do not play nicely with each other. Because of our image generator this is how it is if we want to have the line breaking terts at this point in time. Sorry for this. :(

Once only a blur in the periphery, now brought into focus!


We’re excited to announce that the next addition to our ancient breeds system, the Veilspun, have now been launched. Ancient Breeds are a way for the Flight Rising team to release more regular dragon content, with a few restrictions to make that possible. You can read about the ancient breed system in our Developer Update on the subject.

Relegated to fable and hearsay, the diminutive Veilspun have gleefully enjoyed the air of mystery surrounding their existence. The eons spent tricking and hypnotizing their younger cousins have come to an end—mostly. Recent events in the Forum of the Obscured Crescent have seen Shadowbinder bringing her lost children to the forefront.

Veilspun have emerged from hiding to join their swarms to the clans of Sornieth!

You can read more about the return of the Veilspun in our short story, Unveiled, and gain some knowledge of their characteristics in the Encyclopedia.

Willowmane Deerlings
To celebrate the debut of the Veilspun breed, all active players can, at this moment, visit Galore’s Glorious Gifts and receive the limited Willowmane Deerling familiar along with a food care package. Additional copies of this familiar can be crafted at Baldwin's Bubbling Brew until November 19th at 09:00 server time, after which they will be retired. Fiona quickly took to the deerlings, and even managed to discover a new variant -as she does.

You will have until Thursday, November 19th at 09:00 server time to claim your gifts.

If you’re looking to change your dragons into Veilspun, breed change scrolls will be stocking in the Gem Marketplace.

Veilspun Genes: Unique & Parallel
It wouldn't be an Ancient Breed release without an impressive slate of unique and parallel genes!

Unique Genes
You can pick up the following unique Veilspun genes in the Treasure & Gem Marketplace:

You can create the following unique Veilspun genes using Baldwin’s Bubbling Brew:

You can find the following unique Veilspun genes by battling monsters in the Coliseum:

You can find the following unique Veilspun genes by trading items at Swipp's Swap Stand:

Parallel Genes
In addition to the unique genes above, Veilspun can also exhibit parallel genes that resemble those found in modern dragons. These genes will be available through the same type of gameplay that their identical counterparts are. The parallel genes releasing today are:

Veilspun Forum Vista
You can show off your newfound Veilspun appreciation by sporting the following forum vista, now available in the Treasure Marketplace:

New Emojis

A set of adorable Veilspun emojis are now available!

Known Issues
  • A technical bug resulted in the male Veilspun's teeth being black. We have identified the cause of the issue and will be making fixes throughout the launch day. It's possible that once fixes go live, it will be necessary to forcefully clear your browser's cache.
  • We are currently investigating a few reported art errors with the following Veilspun genes: Constellation, Starmap (f veilspun has swirls at incorrect opacity. Fix coming in soon. Male and hatchling correct), Corrected! Web, and Shell (These were fine).

The third ancient breed is almost here!

On Thursday, November 12th at 09:00 server time we will be performing scheduled maintenance on the Flight Rising website, and it will be unavailable to view or play during this time. We don't have an estimated duration for this maintenance, but when the maintenance concludes the next ancient breed will be released!

We want to take this moment to let you know what to expect when this ancient breed is released. During Undel's livestreams of the concept art work, we disclosed that this new ancient breed is a gem breed. It's been awhile since we've released a breed for gems: Coatl was the last one! However, unlike Coatl and Wildclaw—and keeping with the general pricing of ancient scrolls—this new breed's scroll will be inherently less expensive, and will be available year-round. It will sell in the Gem Marketplace for 1000 gems.

While we are not going to be giving out complementary eggs or scrolls this time, Galore will have a few special gifts to share as part of the ancient breed's debut. Make sure to log in during the week following the breed's launch to pick up your gift from Galore!

I suspect that your blocker may allow you to set a specific exception so you can still have it on for other stuff - it depends on the blocker and how many settings it provides.
