Firstly, I really like the idea of Titan wing dragons it really makes the game more exciting because it gives you something to strive for once your dragon reaches the broad wing stage that wasn't there before. However, saying this, I don't think what you have to do in order to level up to Titan wing is particularly good. Having to level up to 20 is fine because that's similar to the other stages and makes sense but the whole thing with the Titan runes isn't so good. Simply because it's very rare you come across stable quests that have rewards of Titan runes and the ones you do you sometimes even need specific dragons for which doesn't really make sense and is unfair for players who simply don't have those dragons. Also, the fact you have to get 50 runes is simply unrealistic and largely unattainable. I just think the rune system either needs rethinking or rune stable quests need to be a lot more avalible because it's near impossible to get that many runes with the current system which defies the point of the update ever being implemented. I ended up paying for mine with gems. It would simply make the game a lot more enjoyable if Titan wing dragons were actually achievable because with the current system it's kind of disheartening how difficult it is considering the fact this is supposed to be an exciting new update because it means for most people it hasn't changed the game for them at all.

I for one agree with you. And me being the person I am simply saved up for gems via daily reward mainly it is quicker and I could next to never find a stable quest that hands out the runes. And even then they took ages to do.

Ok no more silly stuff lets get serious.. (not really)

                                                       -My Oc Nebula!-

         Ok pile in the hate on my nightfury oc I dare you >:3 Now for a long backstory yay!

Once upon a time there was a couple of male and female nightfuries. Within the mix was a small odd patterned pre-mature night fury. Her story starts a while ago when two night furys had a hatchling. During her hatching-day a high energy flare streamed across the sky. The ground slightly shook and the egg seemed to illuminate a faint glow. Moments later the flare stopped and the ground ceased to shake. The unaware parents waited patiently as their child hatched. When she finally broke out of her shell her  parents both looked disgusted and shocked, for sitting in front of them was a colourful almost paint-splattered baby night fury. The little one shook the remaining pieces of egg-shell off her leg and wing while stumbling over to her mother, only to be suddenly pushed away. She fumbled over her tail and then was picked up by her wings. Her mother was carrying her.. The parents hadn't been satisfied by their newborn daughter so they were making sure nobody saw this so thought "disgusting" baby. Mere minutes later the child found herself in the air headed to a far off valley far from the paradise she used to call home. What seemed months later they landed at a lake. She was placed on the ground and greeted by a different nightfury unlike her mother and father he was scarred on his right eye. She looked back expecting a mother and father to be standing there only to see nothing but air. Her parents had abandoned her.. Regardless of that horrific truth the other nightfury seemed to have no reaction to the sudden disappearance of the two and nudged the young nightfury to follow him. After a good few thirty feet they reached a waterfall. Even with this obstacle the male just kept walking and passed through the water. Reluctantly the child followed. Breaking the hours of silence they expierienced he stated in a calming tone "My name is Proto-Star. But, you may call me Proto if you like." the child looked up at him with big eyes and inquired "When are mommy and daddy coming back?" Proto-Star shifted his weight and sighed "Sad to say but, your parents won't be returning." she replied in a almost whimper " Why won't they come back? Don't they want me?!" tears built up in her eyes as she started to cry. Proto was set in a uncomfortable position and needed to act swiftly otherwise things would get worse. " It's just as simple as that.. They do not want you. But, I do." she sent a confused look his way and again whimpered "How come you want me?" He replied in a firm tone "I just.. Well I'd hate to see a young lady like you whom is full of potential to go to waste because of someone's displeasure by you.. Besides that point what shall I call you..? Hmm... I think Nebula would only be fitting because of your beautiful markings." Nebula then looked at her apparent splatters of galactic prowess and snorted almost seeming flattered. She then said in a cocky tone " It sounds quite nice. But, since I am without my original parents what should we do?" Proto then got up and stated "Well we train you ofcourse.." He walked out of the waterfall shrouded cave and so did she and was splashed with the seemingly endless stream of water. "What am I going to be trained for?" She asked in a rushed voice. Proto continued to walk and look forward while stating "To fly,shoot, and divebomb like any nightfury.. Even if you aren't just any nightfury." Nebula stomped the soft ground with every bound toward Proto.. "What do you mean 'not just any nightfury'?" Proto then replied with a chuckle "Well you don't really scream 'I'm a nightfury!' to me considering your spots and what seems to be white stars?" She jumped in-front of him with a loud HUMPH! and almost screamed "Is that why they don't want me to be seen? Because of my pattern??" Proto sighed with a "I don't have time for this" expression on his face and said " Most likely. Your parents don't seem to be the type of galactic baby loving dragons to me but, then again thats why I'm here. Now. Let's start training shall we?" She sighed "Ugh.. Fine!" Proto then flew up into the air and said "For your first lesson you will learn how to work those wings of your's. First, try flapping." Nebula then vigorously flapped her wings and to her surprise started to rise in the air. "Woah! I'm doing it!" Proto then replied in disbelief " You are a quick learner my friend! Now try moving around." Nebula then tried to move a inch and plummeted to an inevitable faceplant. She mumbled under her mountain of scales "Well that didn't work." Proto chuckled "Ofcourse it didn't. Not everything works on the first time. All you need to do is practice." Nebula then pried her face off the ground and said in a perky tone "Ok, lets try that again.."

Now for a stunning picture of Nebula by Wolfwithangelwings!!

Also a word of the wise don't put you friend code slapbang in your signature. This makes you very vulnerable to hackers or people you dont want to be friends with. I have certainly expierienced this as a problem and I had to terminate that account otherwise it would not stop. Even if it was a beginner account and I have traveled far from it I would strongly advise you strip your signature of your friend code.

I think a little bit of the point is for this to be something you have to work for,

but I still agree with you, it's just too difficult.

 

lower the number of runes needed, 50 is a lot, 10 or max 20 sounds better to me.

and make the quests less rare and at least some that are a lot less difficult.

Yeah, I recently trashed a quest that lasts an entire week for just 10 runes in favor of some that awarded some gems within a few hours. Gems are... easier to obtain, honestly. So I've been saving up gems to titanize my dragons.

I disagree, titan dragons are

I disagree, titan dragons are supposed to be rare and should not be easy to obtain.

Ech.

That's what I've been doing; saving up for gems instead of runes. Much easier.

I agree that it should be difficult to obtain but there's a difference between it being difficult to obtain and largely impossible. It should be at least attainable which at the moment it isn't
