Pounawea: Well, well, well my dear Rie DC. Here we are!
We can finally sit together and share with the community how Rie DC, our great moderator, is as a person and as a Dragon Master.
Once again, thank you very much for agreeing with on answering a few questions about yourself. I'm sure the community is as excited as I am to find out a bit more about you! Without further ado, let's begin!
Pounawea: First of all, please tell us a bit about yourself: what's your in-game name?
Nynaevelan: My in-game name is Rie DC
Pounawea: Heeeeellooooooo Rie DC! and what's your nationality?
Nynaevelan: African American
Pounawea: Do you have pets?
Nynaevelan: Yes, three dogs which are two Labradors and a Hound. One is a senior and two are puppies, which means our house is very challenging right now.
Pounawea: What are your hobbies?
Nynaevelan: I love to read and listen to books, and collect things...hence my love of DC.
Pounawea: How did you get to play Dragon City and how long have you been playing for?
Nynaevelan: I started playing DC because my son and husband needed friends for the game. I have been playing for over 7 years, ironically my hubby and son who started me playing stopped playing years ago and I took over their accounts and added them to my gaming accounts.
Pounawea: What's your fav thing to do in Dragon City?
Nynaevelan: My favorite thing....hmm I guess breeding would be my favorite. I like the events but maybe not so many of them and those that are not so time-consuming but also possible without a tonne of gems or money for the new stuff.
Pounawea: How many Dragons do you have?!
Nynaevelan: As of this moment right now I have 1083 dragons.
Pounawea: OMG! That's amazing! I'm speechless right now... How did you do it!?! Congrats, Dragon Master!
All right, let's move on to the next question. Shall we?
What’s the dragon that represents you the best? and why?
Nynaevelan: Hmmm that is a hard one I actually have two, the Book Worm dragon because yes I am a book worm and the Wisdom dragon because I love reading and fantasy is my favorite genre, and let's admit it, Wisdom looks like he would fit into that genre easily.
Pounawea: And…. how did you name it??!!
Nynaevelan: Several years back the visuals for the dragons were very slow to load so to help me find what I am looking for I named most of my dragons with the name that they are. There are a few that have special names, such as the GoT, Disney and other specialty dragons have the names that they are representative of.
Pounawea: What about your Alliance? What’s its name? How did you get to this one?
Nynaevelan: My Alliance is Rie's Elder Races. I created it when the alliances first started. At first, I started it so that me and my gaming accounts could see what the Alliances were all about. I have since grown it to include other players. We have a range of experienced and beginner players, it is a place to get the chests without becoming too competitive or time-consuming. We do pretty well in all chests excluding the leagues and arena chests. Since we do not have a majority of fighters we tend to only get to the mid-range chests.
Pounawea: How/When/Why did you become a mod for dragon city?
Nynaevelan: I have been a mod for several years, I started on the original forum board when one of the then current mods asked if I wanted to help mod the board. I thought, why not I am here helping anyway.
Pounawea: Tell us about your tasks as a Mod! What do you have to do as a mod?
Nynaevelan: My tasks include answering questions and concerns from the community, keeping the forum organized, ensuring the forum and company rules are being enforced as well as distributing game info for the community.
Pounawea: Share with the community tips and hints! What would be your TOP tips for other players?
Nynaevelan: Hmm well this would be a difficult one, not to mention there several good posts for those already exist. The only tip I can offer is perusing the boards for the game(s) that you play. There is very good information pinned at the top of the sub-sections with some good information.
Pounawea: And…. what is your Top Breeding Tip?
Nynaevelan: The best I can say is keep a pure+pure combo in either your mountain or tree constantly. This is the best combo to try for legendaries. You will get A LOT of pure dragons but eventually, you will get all the breedable legendaries. But most importantly ONLY use the Sanctuary for breeding Sanctuary Only dragons. Breeding there will give you many more false positives so it is not a good place to breed. If possible upgrade either or both of the Tree or Mountain to level 2.
Pounawea: What’s your life or DC motto?
Nynaevelan: Hmmm I guess my motto is "Relax, take it all in stride." Life and the game will throw many obstacles in your path, there is no need to freak out, all will work itself out eventually. Now don't get me wrong there are many times when I do freak out but I do try to keep those times to a minimum.
Pounawea: Last but not least… Say something to all Dragon Master around the world!!!
Nynaevelan: Have fun and get out there and collect those dragons!!
