Hey, now I know that I'm dealing with a monstrous nightmare, but seriously, why can't I pat it?

Every time I try to pat on his head he bites it :(

Does my dragon hate me or what ?!

Hi Trainer M. You're still

Hi Trainer M. You're still able to pet your dragon. Could you explain what you mean when you say you can't pat it? Does it's happiness not increase after patting it? Is it simply the animation you're referring to?

I meant what I said, when I try to pat him, he does the bitting emote, and the happiness doesn't increase

My Nightmare is doing the same thing. Petting her won't increase the happiness and she tries to bite me when I touch her. Maybe she is rebelling against having to wear a saddle? (I took it off of her, but she is still snapping at me.)

patting

I've figured it out the hard way. If you place your mouse in the veeery center of your dragon's face, you can pat it. I have to do it multiple times before the hand appears, signalling that my dragon is being pet.

yea I figured that out also

yea I figured that out also but it takes forever to increase his happiness, I noticed that the hand appears in the center but because he keeps moving his head you can't do it correctly.

and me too

And now mine has started doing it.  was it the latest update?  It's now turning away instead of staying still. It looks away from my hand instead of following it like normal.

Yep, me too...

I do think it started with the last update. I click on my dragon in an attempt to pet him, and he does the bite animation like he's snapping at my hand. The happiness bar doesn't increase; the only way I can boost his happiness is by throwing the ball or letting him chase the candle-laser-pointer-doohickey.

I also noticed that the dragon doesn't look toward the cursror but it isn't a big deal.

And yes I think it's the last update, that didn't happen before the update, and it was the first time I try to pet him after the update

I finally found the spot

I finally found the spot to petfor my dragon. For zipples, it is underneath the belly. However, it take a very long time to increase bit by bit
