hi y'all

I used to be pretty decent at racing- before the checkpoints. Now I will plainly say I am terrible, and i never get first place. Also, does anyone else think that night furies are suddenly not only the fastest, but also have the sharpest turns, best acceleration, speediest pitch, etc?

 

 

anyway, my clan is falling on hard times, can anyone please give me suggestions on how to win more often? any tips or shortcuts? if you know any videos with helpful information please share!

 

of course if you wish to keep it to yourself, i don't blame you XD this is valuable info.

The best way to get better is to follow everyone who is faster than you. If you follow the fastest racers, you will learn all the short cuts they use. Follow people until they are the ones following you ;)

I have heard that it can be

I have heard that it can be easier zoomed all the way in because you can see ahead better for when doing sharp turns... but I have always done perfectly fine at default. I think it is just what you prefer :)

Also, practice making really sharp turns. Staying as close to edges as you can without hitting them (when turning around rocks).

When following the best racers, try delaying your take off. You might see the fast racer take a big short cut.

Backstory:

I was a little girl that got to life at an island very far away, I was in love with the dragon trainers, so when I saw they put up an academy I started Traning as much as I could, I always fighted to train, I discovered everything I could about dragons.

When I was ready I entered, and it was like a dream.

i ment my family and clan: Dark Fury Knight Racers and made new friends.

Once when I was alone I saw Spinel and we had a stong bond together.

i loved snoggletog, the air got filled with the spirit of cheer and everyone was happy.

Once when I was at berk one snoggletog day I saw a baby nadder playing in the snow while nobody was looking and trying to ea5 a piece of cake on the floor, she was so beautyfull, she was black with blue spots and details and loved the snow clearly.

I got her up in my hands even if she was trying to escape and gave her a little snoggletog hat on, gave her a little cake and got her asleep in my arms, she clearly was hiding from others and only got out that day.

From than on we did all together, she was strong, loyal, fast and one of the most intelligent dragons I know.

Once I discovered that she could make hers spikes glow, that was beautiful and amazing, too cuz she never missed a shot at the trainings, we have been on adventure together and love each other, and we will always do.

 

 

 

Fakta about main dragons:

 

Spinel:

He was the adult Sandwraith that i found when i just arrived at the school, he is loyal and friendly but only counts on me and other dragons.

He can resist the alpha command power when the spinel’s make his glowing Armor.

He is so intelligent and one of the fastest dragons i know.

He saved me from many attacks from hunters and animals.

He loves snoggletog and halloween cuz she can play with snow, enjoy the lights and scare ppl.

He have a shiny armor that can light up when he want, the armor is made of spinel’s and he is happy about it.

He is joyful and loves to prank, he is protective and don’t want to let me go for even only some minutes.

I love to sleep under his wing cuz when he lights up they are so beautiful.

And he loves cookies!!!!

 

Dark sky:

Dark sky was too there when the licawig attacked me that time, she is intelligent and smart and so gelous about Spinel’s speed, they always challenge each other for the one that can get more sheeps ( and of course she always wins ).

She is so good at shooting that she never miss her's target.

She have the same thing as Spinel, she can make the blue part glow, just not the body but the top of the spikes.

She has fire that can melt everything and is herself very fast, even if not as much as Spinel.

She too have the power to resist the comand power, only if she changes to crystal ice skin and have the same effect as the one Spinel have.

She have an other problem too! she can't fly without me cuz we been too much togther...

She loves snoggletog because she can light up everything, loves snow and the spirit it gives to ppl. and everybody loves her, but hates Spinel’s bad and annoying snow games and always want him to get in troubble.

She always listen to advices and is nice with evryone.

And she loves to wake me up for the crismas day.

    

weapon:

Don't forget about the armor!!!

The armor on your Viking is also a very important feature. Some increase speed, happiness, and improve your turns. If you do a mix of the screaming death chest plate, alpha toothless boots, night fury shoulder pads & wristbands, alpha toothless helmet & mask. It increases your speed by a ton and improves your turning. For me, I am more experienced on turns, I know every shortcut every faster way to get ahead of somebody. And if you have the membership you have more of a chance of getting first place. Also not to mention, diving is VERY IMPORTANT at the beginning of the track. It gives you a little bit of a boost. 

 

Also, if you are on a mobile device it is best you turn early unless you want to meet your best friend.....the wall. 

Ps. Using traps and boost and shooting at others only really effects you, because it will slow you down a bit.

~Make sure you have good

~Make sure you have good racing armour. Look in the store for them.

~Make sure you have a good racing dragon. Sand wraiths are my personal fav.

~Follow "senior" players for shortcuts. Otherwise, you should play in single player mode and find some yourself.

~The "slow down" button can save your life. Not literally, but press it during sharp turns, and your turning radius will decrease a bit.

~Dive at the beginning of races to accelerate.

~Saddles have improve your dragons' stats.
