The Legendary Egg Hunt - Getting Started
Collecting Magic Eggs
Activities / Games
End of Event
Why hasn’t the event begun in my park yet?
Your park must be at least level 11 to begin this event, which began on March 10, 2016.
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 the App Store, Google Play, or Amazon Marketplace. (The correct version for the event is 3.6.0)
I missed the help menus / event tutorials, what should I do?
Select the Eggschange Center, then tap Help, you can view all the information about the event.
This event is all about playing games, collecting Magic Eggs around your park, and turning the Magic Eggs in for fabulous prizes at the Eggschange Center.
How can I earn Magic Eggs, you ask?
Earning Magic Eggs
Collecting cash from habitats
Clearing bushes and trees from new islands
Collecting Daily Rewards
In this event, Magic Eggs will appear throughout your park daily. Find them and collect Magic Eggs by tapping them.
Receiving gifts from friends
Visiting friends’ parks and tapping “party hats”
Each player can earn up to 1000 Magic Eggs per day.
Except on some specials days, when there are more!
Why aren’t I earning any Magic Eggs?
You’ve hit your daily limit for Magic Eggs. Nice work!
What is the daily limit of Magic Eggs?
Magic Eggs are normally limited to 1000 per day, but be on the lookout for special occasions where there are more Magic Eggs available! (More on that below) Keep in mind, purchases in the market can go above the daily limit!
When do my Magic Eggs reset?
To find out how much time is left before you can collect Magic Eggs again, visit the Eggschange Center and check the timer.
Why is there a daily collection limit on Magic Eggs during The Legendary Egg Hunt?
A spell is cast to create Magic Eggs every day at the same time, but the magic only allows for a finite amount.
Will there be opportunities to earn bonus Magic Eggs?
At random times throughout The Legendary Egg Hunt players can earn more Magic Eggs than normal. Stay tuned to our Facebook community to learn more! www.facebook.com/dragonvale
Purchasing Magic Eggs
Magic Eggs can also be purchased through the Market
PURCHASES ARE ALLOWED ABOVE YOUR DAILY CAP.*
*Once you hit your maximum you can check the Eggschange Center to see how long until more Magic Eggs are obtainable.
What can I do with all the Magic Eggs I’ve collected?
Exchanging Magic Eggs for Prizes
Visit the Eggschange Center and tap the Prizes menu.
Select your choice of prizes from one of the many Prize collections.
The more prizes you earn, the more collections you will unlock.
- Note: If you already have an item from the Prize collections it will count toward your total. Multiples of the same item will not be counted in your total.
I currently own a Monolith Habitat, Monolith Pedestal, and Gemstone Habitat. Why are they not counting towards my prize count?
Let's help you identify the correct items to be sure they count towards your prize total. Check out the images below. If indeed your park does have one of these items, we’d be happy to look into this for you. Send us an email to email@example.com.
These are the specific items needed to unlock more prize collections:
Pedestal of this Monolith Dragon
Gemstone Reward Habitat
ACTIVITIES & GAMES
The Event Island is a hub of activity where you can play games, receive daily rewards, and collect your prizes from the Eggschange Center.
The Burcadian Stadium
Looking to challenge your dragons? Visit The Burcadian Stadium and test your dragons with different elementally themed quests!
Earn bonus Magic Eggs by selecting a dragon that matches the challenge’s elemental theme!
Challenges take 2 hours to complete.
Your dragons may compete up to 5 challenges per day.
The Burcadian Arcadium contains two different games; a game of chance and a game of skill. You get up to 10 plays per day, so come back every day for more chances to win!
Name That Egg - Show off your DragonVale knowledge when you take this multiple choice challenge. Win more Magic Eggs when you guess correctly.
Dragon Drop - A game of chance, Pachinko style! Tap to drop, and win Magic Eggs or gems.
Why can't I play any more games today? / When can I play games again?
You get up to 10 plays per day daily. Out of plays? Visit the Burcadian Arcadium to check how much time remains until you can play the games again!
What happens to my winnings from Dragon Drop or Name That Egg if I’ve already hit my limit of Magic Eggs for the day?
Once you hit your daily collection limit any winnings from games played thereafter, or from unfinished quests, will be added to your gifts list. You may collect these at a later date, but keep in mind accepting these gifts count toward your daily collection limit.
THE END OF THE EVENT
When does The Legendary Egg Hunt end?
The Legendary Egg Hunt will last through April 4th, but the Eggschange Center will remain open for a brief time after the event has ended. This will give you the opportunity to turn in any leftover Magic Eggs for prizes.
I have Magic Eggs remaining in my Gifts Menu. Will these be added to my total when the event ends?
Here’s the scoop. After the event ends, any Magic Eggs stored in your Gift Menu must be collected in order to be added to your total. You can collect a max of 1,000 Magic Eggs per day from your Gifts Menu after the event ends.
What happens to my leftover Magic Eggs at the end of the The Legendary Egg Hunt?
The short answer is; nothing happens to your leftover Magic Eggs for ONE WEEK. You can still hop in the game, access the Eggschange Center and spend your Magic Eggs however you'd like. At the END of that extra week, we'll turn your Magic Eggs into treats and place them in your gifts.
Why did we set it up this way?
In the past, because the prizes were achieved in a straight line, it was easy to know how much players had earned towards the next reward and make the obvious selection of what comes next. Now, since in the Eggschange Center the more prizes you earn, the more collections you will unlock, we had to make some interesting decisions about the end of the event. Should we just pick some prizes and spend your Magic Eggs for you? Should we just tell you the event is over, tough cookies, and your Magic Eggs vanish? Those felt like bad answers, so we decided to leave the Eggschange Center open an extra week, even though the event is over.
Why can I still buy Magic Eggs but not earn them?
Based on our decision to leave the Magic Eggs open an extra week we had a discussion that was essentially, "What if I'm really close to getting a prize I really want? What do I do?" - which is a good question. What can we do for players who were close to achieving their goal, but were maybe on vacation when the event ended? Based on a small percentage of users who might want to reach for some items they missed, we decided to keep the Magic Eggs available in the Eggschange Center.
Why not just make the event longer and let us earn Magic Eggs the whole time?
Then we end up at square one, which is "what do we do at the last moment when people haven't spent their Magic Eggs?"
We appreciate you stopping by our event FAQ for more information. Hopefully it helps explain our thinking a bit more clearly. We're always open to feedback on how to improve our events and make DragonVale the best game it can be.
