Petting Dragons

Some dragons like the Sand Wraith, Dramillion, and Night Lights (to name a few) can't be pet. Petting gives more experience than playing (from what I've seen) without costing energy, which is a huge bonus for racking up more experience via mini games like Tactics and racing. This is pretty much a necessity for players who have run out of quests and expansions and can hardly raise their dragons anymore. Perhaps letting players pet all their dragons would be a good idea? It would certainly help me out, and I'm sure many others feel the same especially if they're stuck farming chicken eggs for experience (and even then the dragons get full or the eggs run out).


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!

Tap/click on your active dragon (not in farms) and there will be four icons that come up above it. Tap/click the ball icon and it'll let you play with your dragon, but if you want to pet it you have to run your finger over it (I forgot how to do this on the computer, sorry). Each dragon that can be pet will respond to your touch/mouse when you run over its "special spot". Most of the time the spot is on the chest, belly, or leg depending on what kind of dragon it is. If a dragon doesn't respond at all and stops moving if you leave it alone for a minute, it can't be pet at all. This has nothing to do with the species' canon personality because some of the most aggressive and territorial dragons like the Skrill or Death Song can be pet, but shy and gentler dragons like the Dramillion cannot. Snafflefangs also can't be pet which was a great disappointment to me because it can be used in Tactics, my favorite mini game. :(

Petting *should* be available...

I haven't tried with the dramillion, but Dart and my sand wraiths, and really all of my dragons, have always been pettable to me. I play computer, so it may be different from mobile, but they have a specific "spot" that does it, usually lower on the belly.


Hi, I'm Kveldsongr.


I mostly lurk, but I try to be helpful. Ask me anything.


Have a nice day!

Ah okay

So then this is probably a device glitch or something, I usually play on my iPad.
