I think it would be nice to see some new types of dragons for which ones you can tame.

We have two that you have to buy Riders of Berk for... it might be nice to have a members only dragon though too.

I was thinking maybe a Changewing or a Scauldron or even a Typhoomerang... I'm sure as the Riders of Berk seasons continue to be released we will be seeing more options for each season... but it would be awesome to have a 'members only' option available too.

a little unfair?

What about the younger kids, or people who can't get a membership? Whispering Death and Thunderdrum are achievable by movie, something anyone could get. But not everyone can get and keep a membership. It seems a little unfair for them, don't you think?

 

What about a series of quests, that take quite a while to finish, and the new dragons are unlocked afterwards? You could get a code or something sent to your email, allowing you to unlock them, and maybe free up one of those 500 gem slots? That  way anyone can get ahold of them. Not everyone is going to go for the new dragons, so there won't be an issue like if the nightfuries were available.

completely agree, i'm one of

completely agree, i'm one of those who can't afford money and member stuff. maybe that members can get the dragon easier than non-member but non-members can still get it but with more work involved so that it is still fair.

Yeah, I get that it might

Yeah, I get that it might seem unfair to people who aren't or can't become members, however members ARE paying real life money for the game and therefore they DO deserve to have things that non-members get. There are numerous games that allow for membership-only benefits (including this one actually).

It's actually not all that unfair that someone paying real life hard earned money on something should get to have stuff that someone paying nothing gets. And it makes sense for the game, as a business, to do this because it offers an incentive to spend money on their game.

Be that as it may...

Be that as it may, you also have to think about who this is geared towards. Jumpstart...so more towards the younger generation, who don't have money. Yes, there are older people who play this game, I am one of them. If anything, what about a 'mid-ground'? Where members can get them easy peasy, and non-members can too? For example, have a whole series of quests, much longer than just a few quick pick-up of itmes, then you're done. And at the very end, you have to pay a whole load of gold to get the dragon option? That way, members can get it easier, but non-members have to 'jump through hoops' and then pay at the end. Both sides are happy, just one gets instant gratification, where as the other has to work hard for it, getting rewarded in the end.

 

The saddle up quest is a prime example. Not only did you have to gather items to 'make' it, but you then had to turn around and pay a lot of gold to get it. The new dragons could be the same, just a lot longer quest(s).
