    The CGCF stands for the Chinese Gold Coin Factory. When I decided to go for the gold (shrines) I realized that unless I wanted it to take a number of years or I was willing to spend a lot of money, I needed to come up with a setup that delivered gold coins at a high rate. This coincided with the introduction of the Panlong (ask GT Girl why it has the word "long" in it ) dragon that was perfect for what I wanted to accomplish. When optimized it has an extremely high production rate of 411 gold coins a minute. It contains 4 elements which meant leveling up a bunch of Pans would contribute greatly to the gold shrine effort. And, fortunately, one of the 4 elements is Earth, which at 75,000 has the highest gold coin capacity of any of the habitats, except for the premiums such as Rainbow, Sun and Moon. But while Rainbow has a capacity of $1M and produces at the rate of 400 coins a minute, you can only have one per habitat. While an Earth habitat with 3 Pans, each at 411 a minute, produces a total of 1,233 coins a minute, dwarfing the Rainbow. The only problem is, even at a capacity of 75,000, the Earth habitat fills up in about an hour which means you have to constantly retrieve your coins.

    To me the perfect combination would be to have a large number of Earth habitats combined with a large number of Rainbows. Kind of a turbo-tortoise and hare approach. I was fortunate to already have a lot of Rainbows and a lot of habitats because I was at level 30. So I decided to invest a few bucks and set up the CGCF. I spent about $125 over a few days and had things where I thought they were just about right. However, a complication arose - I wanted to resurrect my favorite island, the Nursery Island, which meant I had to greatly reduce the number of habitats being used by the CGCF. Fortunately by then the Hibernation Cave had been introduced and, since I'm in a situation where I can pick up coins frequently, I opted to put most of the Rainbows away and concentrate on the high level producing Panlongs. So I presently have 8 Earth habitats with 24 Panlongs on the Asian themed island (thus the name) that produce coins at a prodigious rate.

    I then discovered the one or two hour cycle breeding of Air and/or Sandstorm dragons produced at an even higher rate for a very modest cost in gems. So I combined that with the Panlongs to form the final CGCF as you see it now. As a result I should be able to achieve gold shrines in a reasonable period of time at a reasonable cost, something that seemed impossible when I first did the calculations.

    Forgive the opus - I just woke up from a nap and wrote this while my head was clearing.

    Ahhahaha (on me :-) ) - here I was thinking that CGCF meant a building, or decoration, or something - it's your Panalong island!!!

    And? right after whining about how hard it appears to be to get a sandstorm dragon - guess what! Yep, in the hatchery right now :-) - Happy Dance!!!

    Thanks!

    Edited to add - that was with an Air and a Mud, btw...

    How much more time before pans are gone? I am about to give up on them ever coming to my dragon kingdom. Tis exasperating to say the least.

    I'm doing that right now and have a 2 hour breed. I doubt it'll work tho, the comments I read on DV Wiki seem to indicate that it doesn't work. it's ok, a second air is also on my 'need-to-get' list.

    Yup, that's what I want to try next. Good to know it worked for you

However, that isn't possible in the dark in the middle of the night with my wife sleeping in the same room.

    But I've come up with a solution that works very well for me. When I receive notice of a gem received I exit DV and open Notepad and enter the name there. As I sync up the two devices using iCloud (cool technology) the lists are always up to date on both devices.

    I've been doing that for a while too. It's pretty convenient, though it's frustrating too because of autocorrection. When I return someone a gem I don't just delete the name but put the @ behind their name so I can keep a record. Every few days I email the list to myself and then I delete a few days worth of names from the top.

    I got 2 sandstorms from air and mud. They were both level 10. It took me awhile to get them. I also got 2 sandstorms from quake and air. Quake was level 10 and the air was level 7.

    A mistake is simply another way of doing things.
