Pirates have arrived in the Vale! Come and join the Pirates in Paradise. Grab a towel and sunscreen and relax!
Your park must be at least level 11 to participate in this event, which began on June 17th, 2021. 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 4.24.
During this event, Doubloons can be earned in a variety of ways. They can then be exchanged for curious loot at the Goods & Baubles!
Ways to Earn Doubloons:
- Collecting from habitats
- Breeding and hatching dragons
- Purchasing Dragons with Gems
- Watching Visions at Tolzar's Optical Oracle
- Competing in the Colosseum
- Playing games in the Gambler’s Den
- Competing in challenges at the Ring of Dishonor
- Finding and tapping on Treasures and Stars in your park
- Collecting daily rewards at the Captain’s Quarters
- Completing donations at the Sky Bridge
The Goods & Baubles 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 Naval tier. Don’t forget to check them out!
Exchanging Doubloons for Prizes
- Visit the Goods & Baubles and tap the Prizes icon
- View available prizes by tapping each of the different collections
- A counter on each prize will show you how many of that item you currently own. Please note that dragons that have not yet been hatched will not be counted.
Activities & Games

Buying More Plays
After you use your last available play at the Gambler’s Den, 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 Captain’s Quarters rewards you for each day you play during Pirates in Paradise.
Check in each day for magical rewards and special surprises! Earn free Doubloons 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 Captain’s Quarters, your reward will still be available to collect the next time you visit.
Ring of Dishonor
Similar to cooperative breeding, you can team up with friends’ dragons to compete in challenges and win Doubloons!
- 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
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 Sky Bridge will not be returned and you can only donate newly-hatched dragons.
To fill a donation:
- Tap on the Sky Bridge or the Goods & Baubles
- 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 Doubloons for each donation request you fill. Completing an entire line of requests will provide even more Doubloons, and filling the entire donation request will earn you the most Doubloons. You can complete up to 5 donation cards per day.
