To summon the dragons, the Tines of the Scar need to collect magic from every DragonVale park around the world. Depending on the type of magic that is sent to them, the Tines of the Scar change their appearance and enable the corresponding dragon and decorations to be released, along with unique rewards proportional to the amount of magic that each individual player sent to the structure.
Additional elements on the Tines of the Scar appear in two phases; the first phase is a Light or Dark Magic indicator and the second phase adds an extension to it. In the case of Light Magic indicators, the extension is scroll-like with a gem; in the case of Dark Magic indicators, the extension is thorn-like and appears crystalline.
