I know landing may not be such a problem in this game, many people might not even notice this. Sometimes the dragon hits the ground and hovers, sometimes it hits the ground and keeps flying. I would like a land button to be added.


Landing would need new animation, so this would take time to make, but it would be an amazing detail to this game. Not all dragons would have different landing animation, some could be copied. This would also make the dragons even more unique. 


This would be similar to the flight suit button, it will only appear in certain situations. It will also have a hotkey (T for example)

When flying close to the ground the button will appear. You will slow down, click the button and your dragon will land. 


Some dragons could also have special abillities. Nightmares and Stormcutters will be able to land on rocky walls. Heavy dragons will create a small shake (like an earthquake) for effect...



Toothless always lands by flapping his wings quickly making him slow down and then jumps to the ground. The Flightamre could have the same animation.



When near the ground Hotburples would continue flying and after their wold start dragging their tail they would just flop to the ground (shaking it). This animation can also be used for Gronckles.



When close to the ground they would just retract their wings, jumping to the groun shaking it. Thunderdrums, Scauldrons and Snafflefangs could have the same animation.



Landing with their back legs first, the same animation could be used for Zipplebacks, Nadders, Skrills, Boneknappers, Typhoomerangs and Smokebreaths (Maybe Stormcutters). The dragons would slow down using their wings. They would either flap them quickly or just extend their claws making a silent land.



Hobblegrunts could land quickly, using their front arms/claws to help them come to a stop. Raincutters could have the same animation.


The gifs are just a reference.  Of course there could be more different animations. I would really like to see this added, since it would be great for dragons to have smooth landings.

This would be very helpful. I find it frustrating when my dragons don't land right away. Hope this is added


So, I'm back. A lot has changed in my life. I came to the conclusion I'm Asexual Panromantic, and after that, got a girl friend who i really love. Ive moved on from httyd art to horse art. I animate a bit. I'm in my Horseback riding school's drill team again. I'm stressed as ever and I'm pretty sure I've developed a small case of depression thanks to bullies at school. I have a lot of Horse Ocs and thats all i seem to draw now a days. Oh, i also got a puppy.

Yes!!! My nadder and whispering death do that all the time unless im at a slow speed. I would love it if the admins could at least consider this idea. I personally love this idea, it would make each dragon unique. :)

Actually Cloudjumper lands like Skullcrusher, as seen when Toothless  becomes Alpha.

I love this idea. I have an excepcionally hard time trying to land my Skrills, and it would be really wonderful to see something like this implemented to the game! I really really liked this idea. :3

Hopefully the admins will look into it! I all up for it.

Great idea, Ellie! I know I'm not the only one who often experiences difficulty landing. The only issue with this suggestion is the actual animations. If this was to implemented, it would be quite problematic animating the landings, especially with the graphics of the game. Despite this, I hope the admins consider this amazing idea!

I love this idea!

This is an awsome idea and i think a lot of players would use this. I mean once you finish all the quests you end up kind of role playing and this would just to the experince!


I believe, do you?

This is a very good idea!


clear the slate and start over

just watch it all burn

the name that you know

you will have to unlearn


she's no longer here

but what can i say?

he's happier now

it's the dawn of a new day


go forth, live your dreams

enjoy the fresh air

with a smile on your face

and the wind in your hair


it will be okay, yes

don't worry about me

because i felt so much better

once "she" became "he"


and now you know his name is not "catie"

My FanFic: Hiccup and Astrid "A New Life!"


  Hiccup and Astrid "A New Life" Is a clean Fanfiction that follows Hiccup and Astrid in their adventures as a married couple. This story is packed with adventure, Hicstrid, Trials that shake the foundation of their marrage, and loads of surprizes along the way! I highly suggest reading it. Leave me a comment and tell me what you think.

Here is a sneak peak from the first chapter of the story!

“DAD!?” He yelled. Stoick jumped up in shock

 “What’s wrong?!” Stoick paused “Hiccup?” Stoick said a little bit surprised. Hiccup ran and grabbed his dad’s hand and started pulling him out the door.

“Dad go right to my house! I will explain later!” yelled Hiccup as he ran to Astrid’s old house. Stoick raised his eye brow, he shook his head and walked to Hiccup’s house.

“Even with one foot he is still that fastest person on the island.” Stoick chuckled.  Once he got there he knocked on the door. Astrid opened the door with a smile. 

“Hello Stoick, please… come in.” she said while opening the door wider.

“Hi Astrid, Do you know what’s up? Hiccup is awful…. Energetic this morning.” Astrid smiled

“When have you known him not to be energetic?” She laughed.


Suddenly the front door opened again and Astrid’s parents and Hiccup were walking in. Hiccup went straight to Astrid and held her hand. Astrid’s parents and Stoick and exchanged glances.

 “Well, we called you here for a special reason.” Said Astrid. She nodded at Hiccup.

 “Astrid and I are………..” Hiccup paused, then Hiccup and Astrid said in unison “We are....TO BE CONTINUED in Hiccup and Astrid "A New Life"!

  thank you Hiccup Haddock for the wonderful anti hack banner below!        

The next few pictures are of Ember and his mate, Moonstone. Ember is known for is glowing blue scales on his forehead, ears, and back. He is very protective of his mate, but he very well know's that Toothless is the Alpha. His blue glowing scales aren't to be confused with the "alpha glow." He was born with the glowing scales. Moonstone,  grey night fury that fell in love with Ember. She was born with a blue/green marking around her stunning blue eyes.

A wonderful idea!  I have

A wonderful idea!  I have also noticed that my dragons don't always land right away and I have to fly higher and try landing again somewhere else.  A landing button would be very helpful and I was honestly surprised that it wasn't an option from the getgo as I was looking for one the first few times I went in for a landing!
