General Gameplay Tips[edit | edit source]
Understanding Dragon Homes[edit | edit source]
Dragon Homes are an important part of your island as they allow the dragons to sleep. Each dragon—depending on its level—will have to sleep after they have harvested 1, 2, 3, etc. times, in order to continue harvesting. This is known as the dragon's stamina.
Early on in the game it's important to make sure you have at least one home, as multiple dragons can occupy the same home. You should only start merging the smaller homes into bigger ones when you have more homes than dragons.
The higher level the house, the less time it takes for the dragon's stamina to recharge.
Understanding how time at Camp passes[edit | edit source]
Time at Camp stays still when you aren't there. The only exception is the dragons' sleep time. For example, if you return to Camp after an hour, a dragon who need to sleep for 20 minutes will be awake, but a tree that produces a fruit every 10 minutes will be empty. The same rule applies for Wonders like the Ruins of the Sky Palace, which produce items every few hours: you have to spend those hours inside the Camp in order for them to count.
Note that time stays still for bubbled objects. This means that you can't bubble your Wonders or other large objects, leave them in the bubble for a long period of time, and expect them to produce loot upon un-bubbling & tapping.
More information about the affect of time on objects can be found here.
Understanding Dragon Stars, Dragon Gems and Coins[edit | edit source]
Dragon Stars provide you with Dragon Gems and coins, which are used to buy items in the shop. If you're interested in completing the Camp Quests, it's better to save your gems in order to complete some quests whose requirements can be completed only by using gems.
A Dragon Star may appear in the place of a goal star when you complete a quest. If they appear during a level, it's better to not tap them immediately, but to take them back to the camp, where you can merge them to get the Magnificent Dragon Star. Up to 3 can fall within a short period of time, After that, they won't show up again for a while. To speed up their reappearance, play more levels to get more normal goal stars; after receiving some number of yellow stars, you start getting purple stars again. For maximum efficiency, spend all seven chalices and get all the normal stars by playing easier and cheaper levels, such as Dread Marsh 3 or Cliff Grove.

Quests[edit | edit source]
Some star quests in your camp require you to harvest a resource such as a life flower. Normally, this would use stamina from your dragons; however, if you double-tap the flower and prevent your dragon from finishing the harvest, it will count towards the quest but won't use their stamina point. This method allows you to quickly finish the quest without using any stamina.
Some map quests that require you give the command to attack stones. Your dragons will automatically attack them, which doesn't count towards the quest, meaning that you may get stuck if they destroy all the stones before you command them to. Not all hope is lost, so long as you have at least one stone remaining: using the same logic as above, you can command your dragons to attack stones and then stop their action, tapping the stone again until the quest is complete.

|What are ways which I can get Life Flowers?|
|Refer to the Life Flowers Section here.|
|How do I take objects back from Levels back to Camp?|
|Objects that appears in a list after you beat a Level are called Level Rewards. Some objects may be gotten for free, but most require some amount of Dragon Gems to get. Every Level has a unique set of objects that may appear as Level Rewards, and that is shown in the Level Description box when you tap it. In addition, other objects that appear or are created in the level have a small chance of appearing as Level Rewards as well.|
|How do I "Bubble" objects?|
|Refer to this guide here.|
What are the square icons that appear underneath some stages on the worldmap?
|These show you what level your friends have reached.|
|My item(s) went missing. Help!|
Unless you have not accidentally sold it, there are many possible scenarios in which this may happen, but your items should be recoverable (hopefully).
|Merging 5 objects sometimes give me only 1 of the next level and 2 of the same level!|
|Due to how the merging mechanic was implemented, there is a very small delay in which this may happen. It means that you probably are trying to merge objects too fast. To make sure that the objects you are merging will merge correctly, move it around a little bit (to another tile and back, without letting go) and then try to merge.
