I just traded a never ending dragon and instead of the regular gems it showed some weird genie type bottle....what is that for? Plus the time for trading is longer and costs like 80 gold to fast forward....
The essence is new update... you can use to attract (aka trade for) new dragons. 100 for common, 400 for rare, 800 for super rare and 1600 for ultra... very nice, but I wish I hadn't sold/trade some duplicate in the past :/
Will the essence only be useable in the ticket temple? I haven't felt the need to purchase the temple - but this may force my hand. I was soooo close to crafting some dragons but will miss out. I can craft a zillion rubies, sapphires, topaz ... can I then trade for essence?
You get 10 essence after trading Rare dragons, like Ruby for 20 hour. You can trade every Rare breedingfail to get that 10 essence, it doesn't matter what gemcolors...
But if you don't have your first unique dragon of one or more of this dragons yet, but do have the gems to craft them the old way, I should defenitly craft them now! You need 400 essences to craft this Rare dragons the new way, that's 40 Ruby's x 20 hours, So you need 800 hours trading in the Portal before you can craft one of this the new way!
Here what you need to do before panicing coz its way too easy for those who has dimaond dragon and fire dragon in etleast adult form to be able to breed.
Now for those who do not have diamond are find themselves in mush hard situations as compared to those who already owns a diamond dragon.
Now ultra rare dragon gives you 100 essense right? well use fire and diamond as breeding pair, with some fire fails of just about 2 seconds, you got an ultra rare possibly Ragnokc, or Crusader right? get those to adult form, Dragon portal will take 24 hours to get you 100 essense and voila, with some effort you can get all the dragons you want without trying to breed them.
Same goes for Dimaond and Forest, with some 10 seconds fails of Forest you get Quetzal, another very very easy ultra rare dragon you can get.
Now with these very easy breedable ultra rares, trade them to Dragon Portal, get 100 Essense for each of them and its really fast to get 1600 or 800 essense
Your choice now.
Have fun crafting them. Its a very very easy shortcut. Reply back if you agree and like the shortcut way. For those who does not own a diamond dragon, man sorry folks, there is no shortcut for you guys.
No clue why, except that S8 forgot them. I checked my cosmic types, and most of the planet-named dragons are not tradeable, like Uranus, Neptune, Jupiter, and Neo Meteor, Neo Moon, Orbit and Universe as well. They were all released around the same time, so I guess S8 forgot to remove the trading block for this series of dragons.
