Buying More Plays
After you use your last available play at the School of Arcade, you will have the option to purchase an additional play for 5 Gems. Purchasing an additional play is entirely optional and you will still receive your 5 free plays every 12 hours as usual.
Sometimes mini-games contain a Golden Chest that will provide special rewards. You'll always have a small chance to find a Golden Chest when playing games, but buying an additional play gives a 100% chance of a Golden Chest appearing on your next turn. Please note that this only guarantees that the chest will appear, and not that you will be able to win the chest.
The Arcane Crystal rewards you for each day you play during the event. Earn free Magic and even dragons!
Check in each day for magical rewards and special surprises!
If you miss a day, don’t worry, you can spend a few gems to catch up. You cannot collect a day’s reward in advance.
You only have to login to DragonVale each day to be eligible for the reward. If you login, but forget to visit the Arcane Crystal, your reward will still be available to collect the next time you visit.
Fight or Flight
Similar to cooperative breeding, you can team up with friends’ dragons to compete in challenges and win Magic!
- Challenges will last six hours each
- Choose the best dragons for the challenge by matching your dragon's elements to the elements of the current challenge
Each day, elemental Flag Bearers will be walking around in your park! Find them and tap on them for extra Magic! There will be a total of 10 roaming around each day, so be on the lookout!
Certain returning dragons can be customized using the power of Spellforms. Dragons that can be enhanced with Spellforms are indicated by a mask icon in the lower right corner of their info card, and can be found in the "Enhanced" section of the Dragonarium.
Obtaining Spellform Pieces
The Spellform Energy Chests found in Mrs. Murphy’s School contain enhancements for Enhancement Dragons. Once obtained, these enhancements can be viewed and applied from the Altar of Alteration building.
You can also obtain enhancements from the Golden Chests found in Mini Games. A Golden Chest won in a mini game can contain any of the enhancements, and will start repeating once you have collected all of them.
Note: if you have all variations of the included costume pieces you will receive a duplicate.
The Altar of Alteration
You can keep track of your Spellform collection using the Altar of Alteration. Once you collect this building from your gifts menu and place it in your park you can use it to view all the Spellforms you've acquired. This is also where you can apply Spellforms to your dragons.
Please note that a Spellform piece will not be shown as owned in the Altar of Alteration until you have collected it from your gifts menu.
Applying a Spellform
You can enhance your dragons with the Spellforms you've collected. You can apply an individual Spellform piece, an entire Spellform set, or mix and match pieces from different sets.
- Make sure you've collected a dragon that can be enhanced with Spellforms. These dragons are indicated by a mask icon in the lower right corner of their info card.
- Tap the Altar of Alteration.
- Tap the "Enhancements" icon at the bottom of the screen.
- Tap the "Select Dragon" button on the left side of the enhancements menu.
- In the pop up menu, tap to select the dragon you wish to apply a Spellform to, then tap the "Select" button. A dragon must be at least level 4 to have a Spellform applied.
- Tap the Spellform pieces you wish to apply to the dragon. You may select individual pieces, or apply/remove a whole set of pieces using the "Equip All" and "Remove All" icons.
- Spellforms can be changed at any time by returning to the Altar of Alteration, or by tapping the mask icon in the lower right corner of a dragon's info card.
The surface lands are wild and untamed and Noel dePlante will need the protection of dragons that you breed and donate. Some requests will ask for a specific dragon, and others will simply require any dragon with the requested element.
Please note: Dragons that you donate to the Donation Deck will not be returned and you can only donate newly-hatched dragons.
To fill a donation:
- Tap on the Donation Deck or Mrs. Murphy’s School.
- Tap the "Donation" icon at the bottom of the screen.
- Tap a space to view the request and reward for completing that space.
- Breed the required dragon, then tap the "Donate" icon after hatching the new dragon.
- If you aren't able to breed a requested dragon, you can use Gems to fill the request instead.
You will earn Magic for each donation request you fill. Completing an entire line of requests will provide even more Magic, and filling the entire donation request will earn you the most Magic. You can complete up to 5 donation cards per day.
The Wizards have hidden a magical gift deep in the enchanted forest! Clear the way through and open it to find out what surprise awaits those brave enough to look for it! And be sure to check your gifts when you do!

When does Summerthings Magical end?
The Summerthings Magical event runs through June 11th, and concludes on June 12th at 8:00 AM Mountain Time.

After Mrs. Murphy’s School closes, we'll turn any leftover Magic into DragonCash at the rate of 1,000 DragonCash per 1 point of Magic.
Why did the theme and time of day in my park change?
With each event there is an accompanying theme, and depending on that, the time of day in your park will also be affected. The theme can be changed manually with the Twilight Tower building at any time, but the theme will revert back to normal day and night cycles when the event ends. You can easily tell what time of day is set by the active theme by checking if any lamps or other decorations that respond to time are active.
What is the skybox theme with the current event?
For the duration of Summerthings Magical, the theme of the event is the regular Day theme. It will go back to day and night cycles when the event ends, but this can also be manually changed from the Twilight Tower at any time.
Why don’t I have any visitors in my park?
During Summerthings Magical, the clickable NPCs in your park will be 10 Flag Bearers, each representing one of the 10 primary elements. Find them and tap on them for extra Magic! Once a Flag Bearer has been found and tapped on, they will not appear again until the next day, meaning you can find and tap on only 10 Flag Bearers per day.
What Happens to my dragons after I donate them?
Dragons donated to Noel will accompany him to the surface aboard the boat. Dragons that you donate will not be returned to your park.
Can I donate an existing dragon in my park?
Only newly-hatched dragons can be donated to the Donation Deck.
Until when can I donate dragons?
You can donate dragons to the Donation Deck until the end of the event - which is on June 12th, 08:00 AM Mountain Time.
