Buying More Plays
After you use your last available play at the Eggsercise 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 Thawsome Tree rewards you for each day you play during the event. Earn free Magic Eggs 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 Thawsome Tree, your reward will still be available to collect the next time you visit.
Similar to cooperative breeding, you can team up with friends’ dragons to compete in challenges and win Magic Eggs!
- 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 the jolly Kaleni will be walking around in your park! Find him and tap on him for extra Magic Eggs! There are also colorful eggs spread throughout your park, so be on the lookout for those as well!
A sister to the Winter Witch Lumi, and a friend to all walks of life, Blumi has arrived to help the Wizards and Witches of the vale with their Spring problem.
You will not find her roaming around your park, but she is looking after the Wheel of Chance while Kaleni is off looking for answers.
Certain dragons can be obtained by transforming existing dragons in your park.
How to Evolve a Dragon
Some dragons can be evolved, transforming them into other dragons, and to do this, you'll need to meet a set of requirements that you can find listed in their Breeding Hint. These dragons can also be purchased directly with Magic Eggs if you prefer.
Breeding Hints can be accessed by tapping on any of the breeding areas, then tapping on the "Breeding Hints" icon at the bottom of the screen.
Once you have met all requirements to obtain one of these new dragons, you can summon it using the steps below.
1 - Locate the dragon you wish to evolve and tap on it.
2 - Tap the "Evolve" icon at the bottom of the dragon's info card.
3 - In the pop up menu, tap to select the type of dragon you wish to evolve to, then tap the confirm button.
4 - Tap the "Evolve" button to transform your dragon. Please note that evolving a dragon will cost 1000 Magic Eggs.
It is important to note that when you transform one of your dragons it will evolve into a new dragon, and the original dragon will no longer be available in your park. Please keep this in mind if you only have one of the dragons you wish to evolve.
Runic Breeding Caves
See how many different dragons you can breed in the Runic Breeding Caves! The resulting egg from each breed in a Runic Breeding Cave will be exchanged for Magic Eggs.
The longer the breed times, the more Magic Eggs will be awarded, and breeding new dragon types will provide an extra bonus of Magic Eggs. All breeds in Runic Breeding Caves are reduced in time and can be sped up with Gems.
Please note that the cost to speed up a breed in a Runic Breeding Cave will increase with each use.
All the dragons you breed in Runic Breeding Caves will be logged in the Egg History, and you can choose ONE of these dragons to keep for each cave that you have activated. You can access your Egg History at any time by tapping on a Runic Breeding Cave, then tapping the "Egg History'' icon at the bottom of the screen.
Please note that you have to claim your egg of choice from each cave you have activated during the event before it ends on May 1st at 08:00 AM MDT.
Additional Runic Breeding Caves
Everyone will have one Runic Breeding Cave to start with, and will be given a bonus Runestone to activate a second cave during the tutorial. This bonus cave will be available to use for a period of one week.
On Double days players will be given a second cave to breed in. And on Triple days there will be an additional cave given to players, bringing it to a total of 3 free caves. Each cave will generate Iceberries, and you can claim 1 free egg from each Runic Breeding Cave that was activated in your park.
You can also purchase Runestones in the Market that will allow you to activate more Runic Breeding Caves. These caves will last for a period of one week from the time of activation.
It is important to note that reactivating the same cave will not allow you to claim more than one egg to keep from that cave.
Choosing a Free Dragon from your Runic Breeding Caves
You can select the eggs you want to keep at any point during the event, but please choose carefully as this choice is final and you will not be able to change your selection. You can choose 1 egg to keep from each Runic Breeding Cave that was activated in your park.
To claim a free dragon, please follow the steps below:
- Tap the Runic Breeding Cave you wish to collect an egg from.
- Tap the Egg History icon.
- View all the eggs you've bred, using filters to sort them as necessary.
- Tap the claim button on the left side of the Egg History menu.
- In the list that pops up, choose the dragon you wish to claim, then tap the "confirm" button.
- Tap yes to confirm your dragon selection, or choose no to cancel and choose a different dragon.
- Once you have claimed an egg from a Runic Breeding Cave you will not be able to claim another egg from that cave.
NOTE: If you do not claim your egg of choice before the event ends on May 1st at 8:00 AM MDT, the game will automatically send one from the eggs you have received in each cave to your Gifts menu. These choices are made at random and are final, so make sure you make a claim before the event island disappears.

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.
