How to Become A Power Player

I made a post about the hate power players receive. I really think this is jealousy and lack of understanding. I'm a power player but didn't become one by paying for gems or event resources. Here I will explain how you can be a power player without paying a single penny.


Hoard. Hoard hoard hoard. Hoard like a madman. Hoard like the devil's at your heels. HOARD ALL YOUR STUFF! Hoard gems mostly, but also hoard coins. Hoard crops. Hoard eggs. Get equipment and save the best even if you won't use it. 

Set aside a "budget" if you must use gems. Save a certain amount for rainy days. I used mine on this event because I am NOT passing up the Night Lights!!! And I got all three because I hoarded my gems (screw budgets, I just save it all). Hoard coins to feed resource-rewarding animals (arctic fox, elk, boar, etc.) because you need to buy food for them. Hoard crops so you can mass sell them (only accept the high paying rewards, it saves crops) for coins to buy food when you run out, and to buy seeds for new crops. Don't be generous, be stingy. XD


Grind. Running low on gems? GRIND LIKE THE WIND!!! I believe I made a post about literally every possible way to get gems in the game. It's in the Player Tips and includes a few little-known ways as well as ways that people overlook constantly. 

I say hoard eggs because if you've run out of quest you'll need alternative ways to level your dragons for event-specific Tactics levels. Plus it gives your dragons +5 energy to get back in the arena. This is the easiest way for new players to get xp and energy for their dragons. Get lots of chickens! LOTS OF CHICKENS. Recommended: 2+ coops/pens with max chickens in each. Farmfarmfarm.


Pretty simple. :) Hope this helps with future events! (Any other power players care to add from experience?)


Aka Cryp or Cryptic, occasionally Fang. I have the same username in the game (my main viking). I have all three Night Lights but so far they're the only event dragons I have. Ruffrunner is my favorite and I really hope they become available for Dragon Tactics since that's my favorite minigame. AND I REALLY HOPE DREAMWORKS ALLOWS ADULT NIGHT LIGHTS BECAUSE THEY HAVE EVERYTHING TO GAIN AND BECAUSE MY LIL FURIES WOULD LOOK SO COOL GROWN UP!

My dragons like their eggs scrambled. :3 I have 500+ currently but continuously exchange dragons and spend a lot of time on SOD grinding with new vikings. Farming isn't a big concern to me especially since my level is maxed out. I became a power player without membership, although now I do have one... Thankfully I also opened a TON of video chests and would find stables in them so the stable spaces don't bother me at all. I feel really bad for the people that don't have so many stables. :( 

Fish are for vikings. The dragons get them nice scrambled eggs with bacon and cheese cooked into them. Pepper and salt, DELICIOUS eggs! Or deviled eggs, with my special family recipe. MMMMM!!!! Aaaaaand now I want eggs.
