General Gameplay Tips

Understanding Dragon Homes

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 the level of the House, the less time it takes for the Dragon's Stamina to recharge.

Understanding how time in Camp passes

Time at Camp stays still when you aren't there. The only exceptions are the Dragons' sleep time and Daily Treasure Chest and Friend Gifts' timers. 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 effect of time on objects can be found here.

Understanding Dragon Stars, Dragon Gems and Coins

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.

Understanding Merging

Refer to this guide here.


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 Level quests require you to give the command to attack Rocks. Your Dragons will automatically attack them, which doesn't count towards the quest, meaning that you may get stuck if they destroy all the Rocks before you command them to. Not all hope is lost, so long as you have at least one Rock remaining: using the same logic as above, you can command your Dragons to attack Rocks and then stop their action, tapping the Rock again until the quest is complete.

How can I farm Magic Currency / Stone Bricks?
There are several tutorials on this topic:

How can I get Life Flowers?
Refer to the Life Flowers section here.
How do I take objects from Levels back to the 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.

Dragon Stars and Dragon Gems can be taken back to Camp for free.

How do I "bubble" objects?
Refer to this guide here.
What are the square icons that appear underneath some Levels on the World Map?
These show you what Level your Friends have reached.
What do the colors of the ground tiles mean?
They're just for decoration and don't affect gameplay in any way.
My item(s) went missing. Help!
Unless you have not accidentally sold them, there are many possible scenarios in which this may happen, but your items should be recoverable (hopefully).
  1. If you have dragged an object onto the (now) missing object, check for a Loot Orb. Your Camp might be full of stuff and your object may have been bubbled, if it has dimensions bigger than 1x1. If not, your object may have been simply been moved across your Camp to another location that can fit it.

From this point onwards, I'm going to assume that your items are in Loot Orbs.

  1. Check behind big objects. The Loot Orb may be hidden behind one. Move the objects away from around the place where it was last seen. There is a chance that it is there. Note that Loot Orbs, when created initially will appear in front of objects, but upon leaving Camp and coming back, they may now appear behind them.
  2. Check the boundaries of your Camp. You may have flung the Loot Orb away previously.
  3. Check behind Kala The Treasure Hunter if you have an active quest going on. The Loot Orb may be hidden behind the quest box. Note that it is impossible to retrieve the Loot Orb from behind the quest box until you have completed the quest.
Merging 5 objects sometimes gives me only 1 of the next level instead of 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.
