So wanna do something fun today? :3

 

Okay first, let's go to New Berk!

 

I had Dart scout out the place where we should go, which is near these two points in particular.

Thanks Dart!

 

So land on one of the rocks and let's dive in. Today I have Whistle with me, as she seems to be in the mood for some swimming.

Oops! Before we do, let's change clothes first. Not really a requirement, but I want to keep my running gear dry :')

NOW, we're ready!

 

So just jump in and start swimming...

Towards the end of the two points Dart showed earlier...

 

"Are you sure about this?"

"As sure as the earth's flat!"

 

Continue swimming, and you should find yourself "swimming" in air!

 

This bug makes a nice reference for swimming dragon animations! You can also swim as far as you want.

To cancel the swimming bug and go back to flying, either have your dragon flap again, or dismount. It's a pretty safe bug.

 

You can also do this trick with yourself.

 

Now go out there and have fun!

Neet! I didn't know you could do this in new Berk. I thought the only place you could do this was near that pond on the cliffs in the training ground.

That's awesome, the others I found in the training grounds were patched, and the ones in the farm were too. So far, only Auction island had this left, and I guess now New Berk XD

That's actually pretty cool. Might give this a shot later.

 

I accidentally found a bit of a bug the other day (not sure if it's old news or not), that let me fly around on my speed stinger. I jumped off the cliff in the School (beside Hiccup), and activated my flight suit. I ended up getting stuck on some invisible barrier and couldn't move, so I opened up the map and travelled to the Wilderness. When the game loaded, I was still suspended in mid-air, just above the ground, with my flight suit on. When I got on my speed stinger from there, I was able to fly around the Wilderness on it. Well, technically he was just running through the air at high speeds. I don't really know what triggered it to happen, though. I tried to recreate the bug, but I couldn't get it to work again.

Beep?

Is it the one near the player spawn area, where the tower used to be? I found 2 solid invisible blocks there that you can stand or collide on.

I found one near Mulch(by the fishing area). It's incredibly annoying, especially when I'm speeding along with Mirage(my LF), crash, and have to regain my speed, slowly.

Ohhh

I don't know if there's a solid wall there. I might have to check on it. But I know exactly what you're talking about.

The one near the pond just... Hnghhhh. I hate it when I'm enjoying my flight them BAM.

Yes, it was around there. So that must be what I got stuck on. I guess that's why the bug didn't work after the first time, if I kept missing the spot.

I might go back and see if I can locate it again, actually. I didn't know you could stand on them.

Hmmm~

You could take a mobility dragon, and have them fire around. If something collides with their fire, that's the solid invis spot. 

I'm suggesting a mobility dragon here, because you need precise maneuvering to land your dragon on it.

 

I'll see if I can take some screenies of those spots as reference :3

I've seen and performed that one before, except I had to actually go into a glitch. Thanks for telling me. I will try it out!

There's also plain air swimming that works anywhere with a certain wall angled in a certain way.

I have been playing since winter of 2013, almost the time the game came out, I was a little kid then, and still love the game from long-ago memories. I made my main account under the name "StormySavage" in May of 2018. I am called "Stormy", or Marshmallow (Marshy for short) by my friends because we all have food nicknames XD. I have been racing competitively in Thunder Run Racing since winter of 2019, and can say that TRR is my favorite minigame. I have completed all the DT levels, and gotten all the tier three Bewilderbeast armor, and the best weapons, so I am mostly retired from DT. I am a UDT, and have lots of dragons and trophies. I have participated in all the Dreadfall, Snogletogg, and Thawfest events (no matter how buggy xD), and actively do battle events. I am the proud Leader and Founder of Savage Nation, High Voltage, and Broken Glass Kids.

I've heard of air swimming for years but I never knew how to do it. I followed your steps and tried it yesterday. It was really fun to do.

The greatest treasures are not gold,

nor jewels, nor works of art.

They cannot be held in your hands-

They're held within your heart.

For worldly things will fade away

As seasons come and go.

But the treasure of true friendship

Will never lose its glow.

Fun fact

you can fly underwater by diving and then flying at a sloped rock the rock will push you under and if it does not deside you are swimming you can fly aroud also you can get to the stormheart underwater section this way, this trick is finding a good rock.
