I just restarted my acc two days ago after a longggg hiatus, and boy a lot has changed. How do people level their dragons so fast nowadays??!! I used to do the firepit trick (constantly shooting at this one firepit gave you XP), but now it looks like that doesn't work anymore?

obnoxious grinding for quests

obnoxious grinding for quests or using gems to age the dragons up. there's pretty much no in-between. game's not good enough for enjoyable levelling

There were dragons when I was a boy...

Battling, and Dragon Tacitics, I believe.

I know it says Squiid invited you, ssh pretend I did, yeah, she's cool, but ssh I invited you..

'Bout me:

Name: Goldenwolfmidna; Goldenwolf; Golden; Midna; etc.

Name IRL: Call me Dave, I respond

Gender/pronouns: Dysphoria, so much dysphoria. Pangender/agender/not cis.  They/them

Favorite Dragon: Skrill, my dear children. Lightning breath and a bad attitude? It's me, dragon-fied!

Favorite color: Orange, probably, then blues

What I'm like: I'm a tired, oftentimes snippy and sarcastic, human. I enjoy art and playing video games. I am extremely passionate about genders and se.xualities, so if you want a long-winded rant about how I'm a human too, PM me and tell me! I'm always happy to explain what it's like being pangendered/agendered and panromantic/ase.xual!

Other crap: I am: panromantic, meaning I can be attracted to people of any and all genders in a romantic sense; I am ase.xual, meaning I am not attracted to people in a se.xual way.

I like to draw, so if you have a request of a dragon for an artist, PM me a picture of a dragon, its backstory, and what you want. If I feel so inclned, I will complete your request.

I am a huge nerd and proud of it. I play D&D soon-to-be three times a week, as a DM one time, a Drow Swashbucker, and a Dragonborn Paladin named Ajoke in the last. Fun fact; Ameme, Ajoke's father, was posessed by Bahamut one time. Bahamut is the D&D Dragon God of Good. 

 

Adopts and OCs:

Flikrr, made by the AMAZING Chamishida!

I looked around, nose in the air. It told me there was boar near. I, fire burning hotly within myself, looked around. Sure enough, fifty paces off, more or less, was a full-grown boar. I was getting rather hungry, and a boar makes a nice meal. I stealthily approched it, thinking of the feast I'd have today.

The boar's head jerked up- great. I must have been too loud. And then I heard it as well: crunching leaves beneath a foot. It was leaf-fall, so this was no big surprise. I lunged at the boar, and it gave a shrill whine of terror before I rammed into it, scorching the fur. Within seconds, it was d'ead. I tore into it, hunger stopping all other thought until I saw a shadow and heard the hushed voices: "Is it real?" "Is that a Coalskin?" "How are we not in Valhalla yet?"

I turned. There was a group of Viking children, watching me. They speak in whispers among themselves, but I hear. I turn to look at them, and the voices fall silent. They look scared, except one. I give a ROAR and the group scatters. Not one, though. She approaches me, and says quitely, "They're not going to hurt you." I look at the Viking. She's nothing special, really. She's just braver than the rest. I like that.

I look at the girl, and think about what I'm doing. I then dip my head, slightly. A respectful bow. I respect bravery, and this child, no less, has stood to a Coalskin. In my opinion, we are the most scary dragons out there. The girl returns the bow, and she begins to walk off, and I follow. 

"You need a name." Her voice cuts the silence of the forest. I look at her. I have a name, but nothing she can pronounce. It's 'Hrrrrr', all long and dragged out, and low, very low, until the end, where it flares up into a high pitch. But this girl doesn't know that. "Flicker? Nah, too generic. Flickrr." I like this new human-name. It cuts the 'e' sound, leaving you with a harsh 'rrr' sound. We walk back, both content walking in silence.

And that's how it's been ever since. Once Holly foud her island, I have stayed to keep it save from all who wish her harm.  I am a guardian, one who will keep this land I call my home. The other dragons, like Birchbark, all accept me as a protecter, and know better than to cross me. I am kept 'in check' by Holly's Groncicles, who I do adore, as they let me run free, so long as no fires start in my wake. Dragons come and go, taken to great beyonds, and although I cannot go on adventures 'round the world, I keep my own world safe, for myself, for Holly, and for the other dragons. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Brichbark, made by, again, the amazing Chamishida! Thank you so much, Chamishida!

 Birch was found by Lightning, Holly's Skrill, on a stormy day. The small Sinisterous Woodreaper, being about two months old and having a broken leg, snuggled up with the large Skrill. Holly found them some time later, and saw the leg. She quickly bound it and took the dragon home. A few months later, the small dragon was healed and had the name of Birchbark. Holly set the dragon free but the dragon wouldn't leave. Holly relented and kep the dragon, letting her roam free on the island Holly and her dragons called home. Birchbark si all grown up now, and helps to protect the island.

~~~~~~~~~

Drym, made by the wonderful KasaneLover!

How Holly managed to tame this dragon is beyone her. After Drym had eaten enough of Holly's food, they just decided to follow along after her, and now is one of the dragons of her island.

~~~~~~~~

If you're down here, then know this is a WIP. And it shall continue to be for quite a while.

Also, PM me 'wer aunel di vi darastrix' and you'll get a special dergon art!

Shooting firepits to gain xp for your dragon was removed a few years ago. Once you're out of quests, the best ways to level up your dragons are battles and stable quests. Battles happen every 2 hours at the Training Grounds. Baby and teen dragons can't participate in battles but if you switch to a baby or teen near the end of battle then it will get the xp you earned. You have to make the switch before the Victory sign pops up though because if you don't then your dragon that you battled with will get the xp. If you have your dragon list up and the battle ends, switch to the dragon you want to get the xp. When you exit your dragon list that dragon will get the xp.

My best solution for not having any quests left is simply battles, races or flight club

 

Or farm a bunch of eggs from chickens, go and play with your dragon, throw the ball once then get out, then just rapidly click on the chicken eggs, so you can feed your dragon multiple times and get exp from it but without working on getting that energy down lower. Especially helpful when growing up babies, I decided to do a silly lil video showing it too lol.

 

If you want to see, here, but of course, you don't have to as long as you get the basic idea

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2VfJ_SHO3JU

 

Sending dragons on stable quests is another way of getting exp for a group of dragons little by little of course as always, along with the new Dragon Tactics.

Want to add

Here's a little trick I've discovered when doing what fluffy said .  Feed your dragon ( doesn't work with all) eels till I'm the red, go to play and feed dragon nip ( makes the meter go up faster like chicken eggs does) do it again and again.. .I've gotten my dragons grown faster that way . ... The chicken egg way works also.

I do stable quests. Lots of XP and decent chances to get gems and runes. The quest 'Treasure Hunt' takes 0 seconds and awards 100 xp.

I think Eel Roast is a good

I think Eel Roast is a good way to level them up quickly. Level 15 gave me 150+ XP I think? It can be a bit boring, but it definitely levels them up.

Just curious, did you get that xp amount when you played Eel Roast recently? They nerfed the xp Eel Roast and Alchemy Adventure gives a few months ago and I don't remember how much you get at level 15 now so that's why I was wondering.

Well done with the art

As a fellow artist, I've got to say I'm impressed with your digital drawings. I have to zoom in close to see some strokes, and you capture the likenesses of those dragons so well. I also admire the diverse atmospheres of the backgrounds in your Wings of Fire drawings. It's nice to see a fanartist who can draw in a style that imitates 3D animated scenes.

         My method is to take them in flight club for short-wings and just repeat the first short-wing level over again till your dragon is out of energy then feed with chicken eggs which you need a lot of. Do to level 10

 

 If they are babies do the same but with eel roast.

forum is locked so i can only reply to existing posts for me

ok so i can't post a new topic for reason maybe just cause i haven't been on here in a long censored time,  but my question is this,  if the 3rd movie is the final movie in the how to train your dragon series then what does that  mean for school of dragons?  like will there be a end to new expansions, will the game hideoff, or will it continue on past the end of the tv series and movie trilogy? just finished watching the third movie was crying my eyes out knowing it's the last movie

This has been a common worry of a lot of SoD players ever since the first Hidden World poster was revealed. There's no reason to worry about the game shutting down just because the movies and tv series are over. The SoD staff is capable of coming up with new content without the movies and tv show. There's dragons from the original HTTYD books that they can release and they can also use their imagination to come up with new dragons and expansions. As long as there's a strong player base and they're making a good profit off this game, it will be here.
