    I've been very busy so I have just been collecting coins and not running the maze. I almost forgot about Kong until someone reminded me so got him this morning and ran through all the regular dragons - just about everyone is fighting right now.

    I got 30 Victory Emblems so I opened that chest and got 120 Storm Magus dragons. My Natura Magus has been doing will by me so I'm excited about Storm Magus.

    @tante Thats sucks. You shouldn't wake up in the middle of the night to play a game 😜 . Sleep is a lot more important.

    PSH! Sleep is for the WEAK!!! I wanted to finish lap 19, though...wanted those Legend joker orbs! and yeah, starting the quest first thing would have been helpful as well.

    I was just looking at the same thing, I set my alarm to wake up early, collect the last few gold to finish lap 19 and start the quest and here I am unable to because Preston was not part of the race!

    congrats to 15+ players, great job.... I wonder how many gems you spent for foid/breed/hatch...? I am in the middle of 12 and spent 800 already... I feel like I miss some mayor trick with food management: is one house always just one item? or does it make a difference if you speed up 20 millions? thanks in advance for some hints...

    What you want to do will depend on your goals. Each lap has rewards. There is someone in my Alliance who's plan is to get to lap 20 and do lap 19 timed to get the 100 Joker orbs. Someone else just plays as they feel, not really budgeting gems like other people (myself included) may. My current plan is to get to lap 19 with time to spare.

    I did not use any gems until lap 4 - that's where I start skipping the last battle for 3 gems. I also skipped the last breeding for 1 gem because I got impatient. The next few laps were just the 3 gems for skipping the last battle, then 10 to get through lap 9 in the time limit. Lap 13 also used a bit of gems to get to the timed. I have to the math but I am at about 200 gems now and will have about 250 by the end of the race. Next race my strategy may be different but I used a good amount to get through lap 14 and 15 in time to start 16 early this morning with a plan to complete lap 16 and 17 in the time limits to get double rewards - then I'm mostly cruising after that .

    Next race, my plan is to do lap 14 and 15 in about 2 and a half days instead of one and a half days , but we will see where we land now. I'm in first, 5 laps ahead of 2nd so placing is not an issue for me.

    There is a lot of strategy involved, including planting 30 sec food, being careful when and how you collect gold and what kind of islands you have to facilitate collection, having breeding and hatching available at the time,planning leagues, etc. Some people use more strategy, some use moe gems. It's all individual.

    @imdominik Well, you still have lap 13, lap 16, lap 17, and of course...next race!

    @imdominik The timed laps give you twice the reward for finishing in the allotted time. For example, your rewards for lap 9 is 30 Milky Way orbs but if you finish it in 6 hours, you get 60 Milky Way orbs. The time starts when the lap starts so once you finish lap 8, lap 9 starts ad the timer starts. You will see the timer above the node information in the race. You HAVE to use gems to finish in the allotted time - there's no way aorund that but if you strategize well and get lucky with your spins, you can keep the gems use to a minimum.

    For example, I started lap 9- did node one fairly quickly. I had 2 fights left on one league level so completed 5 fights, used 6 gems (because the level I am at) to skip the wait time. I collected food, fed dragons (waited the hour and 17 minutes). Once the food part was done, I had completed 2 battles. I used my spin here and got lucky with landing on 5 items. So I was able to wait the pool wait time and get 9 of the 10 dragon breedings done before the time ran out - I was close to 6 hours at 9 breedings and didn't want to risk it so I used 4 gems to finish the node.

    So my reward was 60 orbs instead of 30.

    @tante When you look at the lap rewards in the race, the legendary dragon orbs are awarded for reaching lap 10. In past races the orbs were awarded for reaching lap 9 so it makes sense that the timed lap is one lap later than in the past.
    Did you notice that in the first post it says that the orbs awarded are for Mammatus?
    I believe that what we are seeing in the race is correct.

    OH, ok, thank you so much!

    I am on lap 7 now and trying to figure out my strategy. Last race, I had to "pause" at like 8pm so I didn't start the timed lap without time to finish and I will likely reach lap 8 this evening again.

    Everything else is correct and very helpful, I am eternally grateful for these forums.

    So....question....am I reading this wrong? In the guide in the first post it looks like the timed lap is lap 8 (which makes sense as that was the timed lap as far as I recall for the previous races) but in the race itself it looks like it is lap 9. Is it me?

    @tante I do that. What day I reach which lap. How many gems I use on which node & how many of what I use them for.

    This will be my first time using the spreadsheet - it's my 5th race and I'm starting to get a strategy so now I want to refine. Glad I'm not the only one!
