About Owls

Hi Brynjolf and thanks for the update!

 

A few questions:

Will Thawfest Owls be available in-store? I've gotten one using the thawfest chest (and via the rewards) But I would like much more and the chests are too few and far between.

Edit note: I purchased over 100 Thawfest crates and recieved only one owl... but it sounds like I simply have exceptionally bad luck. Vintages just informed me that they recieved multiple owls after purchasing only 16 crates

 

Also you mention skins. Do you mean the paints, also found in the Thawfest chests? I love it when the team makes new skins but I'm not interested in the paints

To Answer Your Questions!

Hi LissaFish!

 

I wanted to fly on in here to answer your questions.

 

For the Brown Thawfest Owl, you will only be able to get this through the Main Reward Line and through the Thawfest Mystery Item Chests. As it is right now, there are not any plans (at least that I am aware of) to have it sold in the store. Between you and me though, and anyone else since this is a public forum haha, we have made sure to note not only the community demand last Snoggletog for the Owl, but also the reception/reaction of getting the Owl this Thawfest.

 

As for the Skins mentioned by Brynjolf, these are in fact Thawfest Paints. If you would like to see a full breakdown of all the items in this years chests, you can find those items listed here under Thawfest Chests. In the Thawfest Mystery Item Chest, we do have the Nature Skins for the Snaptrapper, Ridgesnipper, Dramillion, Hobblegrunt, and the Sweet Death.

 

If you have any other questions or need further clarification, feel free to ask!

 

I hope you are enjoying Thawfest so far :)

 

Best,

SunnySage

...

Thanks for clarifying on the owls! I was wanting some more to help with my medal earning and was hoping that they'd be put in the store so I could save some gems. lol. Since that's not the case I just might have to buy me a few mystery chests. Would love to see the owl in the store next year though. *wink wink* *nudge nudge* XD

Looking for a clan? Check out the Isle of Gazoo Clan Recruitment thread to see if Isle of Gazoo is right for you. If you're interested in joining, let me know even if all the spots in the clan are full. I might be able to find a spot for you. If you put in a join request in game and you don't reply on the Recruitment thread, if you could please put a brief message stating you've seen the Recruitment thread on the forum instead of the standard "Hi. Please let me join your clan." that would be greatly appreciated. :)

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.

(Poem from the Disney movie Tinkerbell and the Lost Treasure)

However, when I make a mistake I do my best to learn from it and then do my best not to repeat it. I apologize when neccessary and accept correction where it's needed. I happily talk about my religion and beliefs with others but I don't force it on them. If they aren't interested or tell me they don't want to talk about it, I respect that.

For more information on Jehovah's Witnesses, for answers to your Bible-based questions, or for information on a varity of topics, some of which  include: animals, countries, how to deal with bullies, how to have a happy family life, how to make real friends, and depression, please visit jw.org.

Thanks SunnySage for answering my questions! Disappointed I won't be able to get the thawfest owl in-store but understand. Will have to keep buying Thawfest chests whenever I can, haha

I am very much enjoying Thawfest... and, thanks to my wild search for owls have an army of Thawfest chickens rapidly leading me to victory xD It was a nice touch to get two chickens for every box! Thats very fair, thanks ^^

Yay!

Thank you! Was hoping for new hideout furniture/a new room to be released onto the store, but the event looks great, and I love the island adjustments! Seems like another exciting month!

Hi, this is Kay’s signature. Although I only joined the forum recently, I have been on SoD for over six years - my very first dragon was my Titan Wing Monstrous Nightmare, Hooky.

 

Things I would love to see from SoD:

- More Islands! A Defender of the Wing Island, another Dragon Hunter Island, Whispering Death Island. A Monstrous Nightmare and Typhoomerang Island would be epic too. Maybe class Islands? There you could see stoker class dragons on Stoker Island (it may have volcanoes or something?), and tidal class dragons on Tidal Island (lots of lakes and waterfalls?). Also, how have Outcast and Berserker Island never been a thing in game? They're as important as Berk and New Berk!

- More expansion packs! I would gladly pay gems if it means I could do more quests and get cool dragons.

 

I hope the devs see this!
