@Scott-Clark it wouldn't be as bad if you could even breed the legacy Dragon, been trying that for 8 months, so another quest cut off , not sure I will keep this game up.
Well, I got lucky and it was the third Legend dragon I bred. Still 8 I don't have though, after breeding for I don't even know how many months.
I still can't use the normal quests for the race though, my next round on Dragotron requires a L38 with a combination of elements where my highest is L33 (and was L25 when I finished the previous round, I've been feeding him ever since). Given the requirements, you're often waiting a couple weeks between rounds on the quests even once you get past the Legacy requirement.
That said, I did some quick math and it looks like you can reach lap 8 with diligence and only spending 1 gem on each quest node (plus the two daily spins, on two of the 3-quest nodes including lap 7), assuming SP aren't completely off their rockers and start a new temp quest tomorrow. It helps that for me in US Eastern time the long cooldowns I expect at the ends of the fight nodes of laps 4 and 6 happen to line up overnight. 4 gems for Reaper isn't too bad, so maybe it's not quite as much of a botch as I thought. Though spending at least those gems is pretty nearly mandatory, you cannot do it for free unless you have normal quest battles you can do with timings that line up well.
