This is a list of user ideas on how to accomplish various goals and tasks and different ways to play the game.

DragonCash Strategy

Experience Strategy

  • Goals: Many of the built-in goals throughout the game supply 100,000 or more experience points for breeding a single dragon or building certain structures.
  • Participate in Races at the Dragon Track. Experience rewards seem to scale up for higher level players, and there are periodic bonuses of millions of experience.
  • Buy and Sell from the Market: Buying and then reselling things is a quick, albeit expensive, way to get Xp template. Decorations can be built instantly and give the half purchase price in experience. For example, a yellow tree costs Coin template 500 and gives Xp template 250. Buildings and Habitats may take longer to build, but most of them give out experience in a 1:1 ratio with purchase price and are therefore more cost effective.
  • Breed Dragons: Hatching dragon eggs gives experience, so breed dragons often. Basic dragons do not give very much Xp template, while hybrids and rares can give much more. The Metal Dragon achieves the most Xp template per hour.
  • Grow Treats and Feed Dragons: Harvesting treats you have grown on your Treat Farms gives out experience points. Feeding these treats to your dragons gives Xp template 20 per unit fed (cited here). When you add these two Xp template sources together the experience/dragon cash ratio becomes quite lucrative.
    Example: Dragon Fruit (3000 units of treat) costs Coin template 75,000 and gives Xp template 125,000. Add the Xp template 60,000 you get for feeding the treats to your dragons (3000x20) and you get Xp template 185,000 for Coin template 75,000 (2.47:1 ratio). Other treats produce different ratios depending on their unit price. This strategy is most beneficial to your park as a whole, because higher level dragons earn more dragon cash and attract more visitors.
  • Participate in the Colosseum: Each day, a different elemental event will occur in the Colosseum. Winning the gold trophy in these daily events will give you 10% of the needed Xp template to get to the next level. Silver trophies will earn you 5% of Xp template to the next level and bronze trophies will earn you no Xp template.

Gem Strategy

  • Form a Circle Friends: Every 24 hours, you get three free Gem template for gifting to friends on your friend list. In order to ensure that you get the same amount of Gem template that you give, form a "gem circle" of four people. Gift your Gem template only to each other and every day each of you are guaranteed to receive three Gem template. If you purchase the Dragonsai Gifting Tree you can gift an additional three Gem template daily and can expand the circle to yourself and six friends.
  • Share Posts on Facebook and Twitter After Completing Goals: Every time you complete a goal, you're allowed to tweet/share it on Facebook, and that give you one Gem template for each of these portals (two for both).
  • Participate in the Colosseum: Gold trophies give five Gem template, silver trophies give two Gem template and bronze trophies give 0 Gem template. High level dragons which include the element displayed in the Colosseum have the best chance of winning a gold trophy.
  • Get Gemstone Dragons: You can earn more Gem template's in a week if all your gemstone dragons are Level 10.
  • Race in the Dragon Track: While Gem template are not a frequent prize, they can be gained through winning races.
  • Use game codes: A varying number of free Gem template can be earned by going to options, clicking 'redeem code', and typing in a code, which can be found on the Social page.
    • The option to redeem codes was removed on February 4, 2014.

Shrine Strategy

Breeding Hybrids (dragons with more than 1 element) will fulfill more than one shrine's requirement per dragon, thus costing less time and food. With the Love Dragon you can fulfill three per dragon, and with the Panlong Dragon you can fulfill four per dragon. The most food efficient way is to use Century (10 hours), Love (5 hours), and Chrome (5 hours). However, this method takes a while due to Century's incubation time. The most time efficent way to level up all shrines is to use Poison (30 minutes), Sandstorm (2 hours), Storm (5 hours), and Rust (6 hours). Although it will require 33% more food, it completes the process faster.

Dragon Leveling Strategy

When leveling-up dragons, it is generally beneficial to level them all up together equally, not one by one, since there are diminishing DragonCash collection returns of DragonCash→Food→Dragon Level investment.
