A few years ago it was possible to level up dragons while farming. This was removed along with dragon XP from fishing. I always kmind of wondered why this change happened, and if there's any plans on this being re-added at some point?

 

I'd love to see it back-- it gives people more incentive to farm and fish. I don't really have a reason to use my farm, and the dreadfall event reminded me of how farming was useful for a few things back in the day. I want it to become useful again!

They probably removed this to make leveling up dragons more of... A reward?? Or maybe because jump-start could earn some more dosh by having the easy way out for players like spending gems? But now they've removed that it's pretty impossible to level up a dragon without battle events and a lot of patience. If you play dragon roast or that science thingy one, the exp gain slows to a crawl If only there were more methods for exp like actually looking after your dragons well.

Also, with my farm I would not have been to if it wasn't for the candy farming. Actually, I'm almost certain you can miss farming out completely and have no impact on gameplay. My sheep have been waiting for their next feed for the past few years.....

Haha

I hated that mini game a lot so I hadn't noticed... Lol

Why'd they remove it? Was it because nobody played it or because they had a separate game as an actual app?

I don't know why they removed it. Back at the beginning of August people started posting that they couldn't play AA. They said when they went to enter the lab a message would pop up saying "You do not have a current experiment." I messaged Brynjolf about it and he said that AA had been removed from the game. He didn't say why. My guess is that it's popularity dramatically decreased to the point that almost no one was playing it because they severely nerfed the xp you got from it and so they decided to remove it.

I remember when this was a thing. I could get several dragons to the max level of 20(that was the max level back then for anyone who didn't know) in about 3 or 4 weeks. It was removed at the same time getting xp from shooting firepits was removed. I seriously doubt that it will ever be brought back since they've added stable quests and battles which give out decent amounts of xp. It'd be nice to see them add something to entice people who don't normally farm to start using their farm though.

Back when 30 was the max (I haven't experienced level 20 being max) I leveled all my dragons to 30 with farming.

I feel like just stable quests don't really actively level dragons. I 100% use stable quests nowadays, but a less passive alternative that isn't just bi-hourly like the battles would be cool, too. Tactics works, but the XP payout is very low so I don't feel like it's worth the hassle.

 

Farming always felt more active, and even though it wasn't quick to level dragons, it also gave more incentive to stay farming despite getting more coins than I'd ever need from it. I think that bringing back dragon XP to farming would be quite enticing for some people. Draining a dragon's energy and stuffing it with eggs only stays 'fun' for 5 levels or so.

Level 20 was the max level before titans were added. Seems like a long time ago. lol.

 

I was looking at old threads about the removal of dragon xp from farming after I saw this thread because I was trying to figure out if a reason was ever given for the removal(never did find one) and quite a lot of people were upset by it. I'm sure that a lot of people would welcome it's return.

Was it? I remember the max level being 30 back when titans weren't a thing yet.

 

I'd love to know the reason it was removed! It's kind of why I made this thread. Hoping an admin or dev could shed some light on this.  I doubt it'll happen but I'm always curious about why seemingly working and balanced mechanics get removed. Perhaps something was broken and it had to be removed in its entirety.

Yeah. I started doubting myself a little bit so I looked it up. XD On the thread announcing titans coming to the game Brynjolf answered someone's question about the level cap for dragons and he said it had been raised to 30. I remember shortly before titans were released the game kept glitching and you could level your dragons to 30 even though that wasn't supposed to happen yet.

That's so odd! 30 was always the max level for me since I started out, I joined in 2015 if that helps any. 

If I managed to level 30-40 dragons to a bugged level then that's actually pretty funny. Luckily there were no adverse effects.

That's so weird! Titans weren't added until April 2016 which means the level cap should've been 20 until then. I guess you just have a very special account. lol.

LOL that's hilarious. Kind of makes me wonder how and why this happened.

How about viking levels? I remember my viking being level 30 too before they increased it to 50.

 

The special account might be true though. It's bugged to heckie. Many things are borked for me, and recently I've gotten the lil speed bug which makes me... ridiculously fast so.. lol.

The level cap on vikings used to be 30 or 35. I'm thinking it was 35 but I'm not 100% positive on that.

Chicken eggs work well until like, level 10 or so. After that draining energy and feeding just feels like a drag, especially with lag not registering xp from a feed despite restoring energy. It could take me a day, maybe 2 or 3 to level a dragon to 30 with just eggs but... do I want to? Absoltely not! hahaha

 

It doesn't feel like leveling dragons like this was an intended 'mechanic' anyway.
