Your park must be at least level 11 to participate in this event, which began on June 22nd, 2023. If you’re above level 11 and the event hasn’t started for you, you may be playing on an older version of DragonVale. Please update to the most recent version through your device's app store. The correct version for the event is 4.28.
During this event, Spice can be earned in a variety of ways. It can then be exchanged for curious goodies at the Beacon of the Sun!
Ways to Earn Spice:
- Collecting from habitats
- Breeding and hatching dragons
- Purchasing Dragons with Gems

- Finding and tapping on Treasures in your park

The Beacon of the Sun can be found on the event islands and contains all the prizes that can be earned in the event. Brand new decorations have been added to the Oasis tier. Don’t forget to check them out!
Exchanging Spices for Prizes

- View available prizes by tapping each of the different collections.

Buying More Plays
After you use your last available play at the Excitents, 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 win the chest.
The Refreshing Waters reward you for each day you play during Dunes of Magic.
Check in each day for magical rewards and special surprises! Earn free Spice and even dragons!
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 Refreshing Waters, your reward will still be available to collect the next time you visit.
Trials of Sand
Similar to cooperative breeding, you can team up with friends’ dragons to compete in challenges and win Spice!
- 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.
Veezir is a Wizard from the harsh lands of the Sandara Desert and has made his way to the Vale to make new friends, trade knowledge and spices with the other Wizards and to get away from the sand, at least for a while!
Frequently Asked Questions
Why hasn’t the event begun in my park yet?
Your park must be at least level 11 to participate in this event, which began on June 22nd, 2023.
If you’re above level 11 and the event hasn’t started for you, you may be playing on an older version of DragonVale. Please update to the most recent version through your device's app store. The correct version for the event is 4.28
What is the daily limit of Spice?
There is no overall daily limit on Spice in this event, but the maximum amount of Spice you can earn by collecting from habitats is 500 per day on a regular day and 1000 on a double day.
Why am I not receiving Spice when I collect from my habitats?
If you are no longer earning any Spice when you collect from habitats, that would indicate that you have reached your habitat limit for the day.
Why didn't I win the Golden Chest when I bought an additional play at the Excitents?
Buying an additional play guarantees that a Golden Chest will appear as one of the possible prizes in that round, but does not guarantee that you will be able to win it. Please note that in Name that Dragon/Egg you must answer correctly before the timer expires in order to win the Golden Chest.
When does Dunes of Magic end?
The Dunes of Magic event runs through August 6th, and concludes on August 7th at 8:00 AM Mountain Time. It will not be possible to earn additional Spice after this time, but the Beacon of the Sun will remain open for two additional days so you can spend any leftover Spice you may have.
When does Excitents close?
Excitents will close on August 9th at 08:00 AM Mountain Time and it will not be possible to claim event prizes after this time.
What happens to my leftover Spice at the end of Dunes of Magic?
After Excitents closes, we'll turn any leftover Spice into DragonCash at the rate of 1,000 DragonCash per 1 Spice.
Why don’t I have any visitors in my park?
During Dunes of Magic, the clickable NPCs in your park will be 4 Treasure Chests filled with Spice. Find them and tap on them for extra Spice! Once a Treasure Chest has been found and tapped on, it will not appear again until the next day, meaning you can find and tap only 4 Treasure Chests per day.
Who is Veezir and why can’t I find him in my park?
Veezir is the latest addition to our roster of Wizards and Witches who has come to trade and enjoy the Vale. He does not roam around your park, but can be found welcoming Valers to the event and operating the Wheel of Chance.
