    Ok I've been reading and reading ...... Now while I hear enormous amounts of great ideas you just have to remember 1 which is why you began to play this wonderful game and as for the shrine goals some just don't get it it's not a grind or a goal it's the simplest thing that escapes some people....... It's so that you have a pass time between the updates because the wait for each update can be 2 weeks to 1 month hopefully we will get more updates soon. Breed on and just enjoy for games sake. Breed on to the best forum on the net baby. Breed on!!!!!!!!!!

    Well if the golden shrines are there just to pass time between updates, i would guess the next update is in 6 month or later Lol

    Has anybody else here gone through a period like this and come around again?
    Ive been there iluli. I came back when they introduced the shrine concept and new islands. Im a creative person, so if i get bored with the game itself, i just redecorate my islands

    As for the moon thing, i was the opposite. I hatched 5 suns in one week! Perhaps leave the sun hunt for a while and go on to something else. Then in a couple of days, hopefully u get ur sun

    You are correct.

    They are doing okay. They still have 1 or 2 rares they're working on. But they both have reindeers and I don't, so I think they win.

    Everything would be perfect except that one square. Oh well. It looks better then it did before anyways. Less cluttered

    I sense a growing sense of malaise and loss of enthusiasm here and I think I know the cause. There are really only three elements to DV: (1) Breeding (2) Design (3) Striving for Shrines. Let's analyze those for a minute and how they each rate on the pleasure scale.

    Breeding
    Breeding can be a huge plus or a huge minus. It can be exhilarating when you get what you want and downright depressing when you have a long string of failures, which many on the list are experiencing right now. And for those who have a pair of every dragon, the thrill is gone completely, so breeding is lost.

    Design & Building
    This is only a plus, the most enjoyable part of game in my opinion. There's no downside to it. But as I go around clicking on party hats I see a lot of designs that never change.

    Striving for Gold Shrines
    This in my opinion, and despite my doing it, is simply a minus. There's a small sense of satisfaction when you reach a gold level, but the journey is a slow agonizing monkey motion grind - more like work than play.

    So let's add it up. Let's say you're in a long losing streak breeding. Thats -1. And you've pretty much left your park design alone for a while. That's 0. And that you've been suckered into the gold shrine grind. That's -1. Your total score is -2. No wonder you're not having any fun!

    My advice? Go work on the design of your park. Play. Forget the shrine grind. You'll enjoy yourself while waiting for the inevitable breeding break-through.

    I think BFS made a serious mistake when they introduced the grind. They should give the opportunity for more islands (more design fun!), the opportunity to have more habitats and not be as confined. The shrine grind is not enjoyable and hurts the game. They need to expand in ways that are fun, not work.

    FWIW,
    Poppy
    Thats what i think! Designing is the fun part. Making your island unique. Its saved me many a time from boredom

    Perhaps we should be careful here. They may decide to sell it for a million ans also give it a 8hr breed time!

    When the gold shrines were first introduced I did an analysis and posted it here. My calculation showed that without spending any real money (a goal that has eluded me - much to BFS's delight, I'm sure) or jail breaking, it would take 5 years to get the seven gold shrines. That may have been a little pessimistic because I didn't have the strategies down that I do now. Some one else just did the same analysis on the DV Wiki and their conclusion was that it would take 3 years.

    The rules that I have set for myself are to set a daily limit and to only buy gems - never buy gold coins or treats. That way I accelerate things but still have to do all the work (er, play) to produce results. The biggest accelerator for me by far was to spend about $140 (!) to set up the coin factory, which otherwise would have taken months by itself. I'm fortunate to have a very tolerant wife.

    Once you have the proper strategy in place, there are only three ways to speed things up substantially: spend a lot of hours on the game, spend some money, or cheat. I opted for the first two because I'm just too impatient otherwise. And, as you know, my options are limited right now for things to do.

    I have enormous respect for those who make steady progress without spending money and use skill and patience instead.
