    I think getting 500 orbs of anything through trading is going to be a long shot. Even 100 orbs. For one, you would need a ton of essences, as well as whoever you trading with. And two, you actually need someone that has them and willing to give them up.

    I think that the rules and required essences right now are too strict to be able to do anything drastic. This may be a preventative measure so that players don't band together to manipulate the system to give each other 5* dragons. To me, this trading essences should be used much like Joker orbs. Don't use it unless you are really close to getting a dragon or an upgrade for it, otherwise you won't have any left.

    @scott-clark I am in complete agreement. That's real good insight.

    I just heard that they are imposing a 12 hour freeze on anyone who tries to go "alliance hopping" just to trade orbs with others. This is their preventative measure for that. So if they leave an alliance, then for 12 hours, they will not be able to join an alliance. Is that correct? Or is it that you must stay in an alliance for 12 hours and can't LEAVE it for that time?

    I personally don't see it as very useful, although I'd be willing to trade with anyone for just about anything. Sorry, you can't have my Ultimate or RoL orbs just yet. I still need those. But I will let others instigate the trade. I personally don't really need anything.

    Oh I see. I didn't realize that. I thought players could see your entire inventory. It's good if they can't. That certainly makes it more palatable.

    I think this is going to be an absolute disaster. For one, I don't like the idea of anyone seeing what I have. I am already seeing players asking for Ultimate orbs in different groups, before it even begins, as if anyone is that stupid to give those away. It's going to be a social manipulation nightmare.

    Edit: the official announcement is HERE

    They need to be broken down between functionality and looks, because let's face it, there's not one that has the best of both, so here are my favorites.

    For looks only:

    1. Shycon - for the costume design.
    2. Beholder - for the color and beauty.
    3. Origin - huge and intimidating. Not a bad fighter too, except for that Soul element.
    4. Noble - pick for best female design. Simple, but very elegant.
    5. Trihorn - very complicated to look at, but that is my kind of thing. I like things over the top. Good color too.

    For fighting ability:

    1. High Reverie - best overall for the Heroic class. Better than Celestial, because he doesn't have the redundant element. He cannot be critically hit without returning a critical hit by any heroic.
    2. Ultimate - cannot be critically hit, and has all special attacks.
    3. Phantom - cannot be critically hit, and was available in the shop without limit, so he could be leveled up to 70... which is why I did just that.
    4. High Zephyr - heroic defending Primal, was empowerable, and difficult to get, because it had to be won from the alliance race.
    5. Abyss - defends Light, but has a Dark counter attack. Can be defeated by Nature, but he also has a counter attack for that - Flame... AND Ice. One of the best elementally stacked regular dragons in the game, and hard to beat. Can be bred in the Sanctuary fairly easily for empowerment, which I highly recommend doing. The only way he could be better is if his Ice attack was changed to War, to counter the Flame defense.

    Out of these, I purchased Abyss, Apocalypse, and Kratus because they are some of my strongest dragons, they are essential, and they will get used. I bought Elusive also, because I may have him very strong in the future also. I didn't bother with Boulder, because I don't like the look.

    It's still negligible. A cat 5 maxed will have 193k HP while the cat 9 has 187k. And then the cat 9 makes up for it in attack power. The difference is still negligible, considering each dragon is only going to be hit 2 or 3 times before the match is over, or the dragon is defeated.

    If you were going to compare an Epic cat 5 with a L cat 5, then the difference is significant, but a L5 and a L9, there's virtually no difference.

    Yeah, I see no need to get rid of Einar. Basically, once dragons are released, they are permanent. The only thing that may change is their skin/look and/or their name. If you delete Einar, then you had better be prepared to compensate me 25 million food for the level 40 I have invested in him. That is nuts.
