Players who are doing their first race should read this:
***HEROIC RACE TIPS AND GUIDE ***
IMPORTANT--> Check the probability of getting an item in the guide before you post in group to say you are not getting anything for breeding/hatching etc. Some probabilities are low and you will have to keep doing the task repeatedly to get the items. Please do not flood the group with posts asking why your breeding and hatching is not working unless you've checked this and you really think you are having an issue.
You are in a group of 8 players. To get the dragon, you must qualify by finishing lap 4 and win in that group of 8. Or reach lap 15 to get the new Herioc dragon. However, there are prizes for finishing the race in other positions.
There are pools and wait times. Check the link below for pools and wait times for the lap and node you are currently on. I recommend checking each time you begin a new node so that you are not frustrated when you are not receiving an item for doing a task.
Again, CHECK your pools and wait times before collecting so you don't waste time and resources.
**For breeding: Breed Terra and Terra (fastest combination) with low lv parents, You can also breed sea x Poseidon, sea x sea or other basic dragons with at least one parent level 14 or less.
**For hatching: Breed any combination above. Hatch and place. We found out that on pc or puffin buying terra eggs and placing them works also and is the quickest thing. For some players it also works to sell the eggs from the hatchery. Check to make sure that you don't have the task of feeding your dragons on your current node. If you do, feed that dragon before selling.
**For feeding your dragons: Feed one of the hatches you did or breed another terra and flame to feed to level 7, then sell.
**For collecting food: Grow Dragon Bells and collect after 30 seconds. Repeat this until you have collected the full amount of points.
**For collecting gold: Go to a habitat that earns gold relatively quickly. Tap on the habitat. Tap on the collect gold button until you have collected your full amount of available points. Even if you collect 25 gold repeatedly, you will get the items.
**League battles: Fight ONLY the number required for your current task! If you run out of league battles, check the pools and wait times for the rest of your node tasks. If the waits are longer than your next league battle refill and you can afford to wait (nobody is gaining on you) then wait. Also, if your league battles take many gems to refill and it's only going to take a few gems to skip the rest of that task completely, buy the task out with a few gems.
