'Ello, I'm a long time player from 2015 who hasn't played in ages. I tried to get back into SoD a couple months back but I wasn't able to purchase any membership or gems :>

 

I just wanna know if it'd be worth getting back into playing the game since it still seems pretty broken and buggy from what I've seen from lurking on the forums but I could be wrong. It's also nice to see that the spam still hasn't been fixed on the weekends.

 

So what have I missed in the past year?

It’s worth it !

i was too a player from back in 2014 tho I lost my account and had to restart all over again, though when I went back to the game it was pretty new compared to how it was it’s much more exciting, yes there’s still bugs and lagging but it’s improved from how it use to be. But I think u should see for yourself everything has changed.

The game's as buggy as it used to be. There's more content, but there's still a lot of grating issues going on.

The game does still have it's bugs. After almost 4 years of playing, I've come to the conclusion that it will never be bug free. Sometimes bugs can get pretty annoying, like the one where Thunder Run crashed after almost every race for 2 months, but I still enjoy the game despite everything. I say it's worth giving it another chance but it's totally up to you.

 

There's been new content and changes over the past year. I'm sure I can't remember everything but here's a few things that I do remember.

- You now have to click on your vikng to get to your backpack, journal, friends list, emotes, and clan board. If you play on a computer, you can press b for backpack, j for journal, v to bring up your dragon list but you now have to be on the ground, dismounted from your dragon to change dragons, there are more hotkeys but my mind's gone blank.

 

- Depending on when you quit playing, there was an expansion released last fall and one this spring that you missed.

 

- There have been new dragons added. The only way to get the Elder Sentinel is to play the Wrath of Stormheart expansion.

 

- There's a new mini game called Dragon Tactics that you can play at the Training Grounds, the Edge, or at Berk. It's a game where you fight different computer controlled enemies. You can use your own dragons on the Training levels and Icestorm Island levels. You can get weapons and armor from this game if you answer random questions correctly. If you don't know the answer to a question, just look it up on the internet. To claim your items, you have to move them into your battle backpack on the left side of the screen. There are a limited number of spaces in your battle backpack. You have to purchase more spaces with gems. Each space is 10 gems.

 

- Max viking and dragon levels have been raised to 50.

 

- Alchemy Adventure and Eel Roast give out a lot less dragon bond xp than they used to. I pmed Brynjolf about it and he's supposed to let me know if it's a glitch or intentional. I don't know when I'll hear from him.

 

It's nice to see older players thinking about returning. If you decide to return to the game, I hope to see you in game sometime. :)

The greatest treasures are not gold,

nor jewels, nor works of art.

They cannot be held in your hands-

They're held within your heart.

For worldly things will fade away

As seasons come and go.

But the treasure of true friendship

Will never lose its glow.

(Poem from the Disney movie Tinkerbell and the Lost Treasure)

About Me:

 

The first and most important thing you should know about me is that I'm one of Jehovah's Witnesses. I enjoy studying the Bible and learning from it. I live by Bible standards and strive to apply Bible principles in my life everyday. Of course, I'm not perfect and would never claim to be. However, when I make a mistake I learn from it and try not to repeat it. I apologize when neccessary and accept correction where it's needed. I happily talk about my religion and beliefs with others but I don't force it on them. If they aren't interested or tell me they don't want to talk about it, I respect that.

For more information on Jehovah's Witnesses, for answers to your Bible-based questions, or for information on a varity of topics, some of which  include: animals, countries, how to deal with bullies, how to have a happy family life, how to make real friends, and depression,  please visit jw.org.
