I feel the same way. The last thing I want to do is complain about short fail times, but I constantly feel the need to go back in and breed again. I've caught myself wanting to use gems on fails because it's "only one gem."

Me too! First fail was a cactus, second was ash, and third try was a topaz! I don't think I've ever gotten the gemstone dragon this early before. Of course, I still want a display egg So more work to do still!

I'm at about 0 for 9 on Topaz. I'm glad for the short fail times but not going well so far. Hopefully get my 2 sooner than later.

Got lost on my way to GameFAQs...

Me too. Many fails so far, but then it usually takes me two weeks to get one.

Looks like the Eclipse dragon is coming.

I am looking forward to that. I hope the app doesn't crash too much on my ancient device.

So, does anyone now if the new decoration, The Umbral Sculpture, is a glimpse of an Eclipse dragon coming up?

It says that when the Umbral Sculpture is active, it is time to breed the Eclipse dragon.

Edit: Sorry stlredbird, you already answered my question. Thnx

I'm back to racing - 3 pieces to go. The wheel landed on a piece I already have so it said I'd have a bonus spin. Then it didn't give me one. Bah. And it keeps giving me the same race choice - Shimmering Faultline - without going back to the colosseum. Double bah.

When that happens, if you just keep running the repeated race a couple of times, you WILL get your bonus spin, and then it'll take you back outside the racing menu, as normal. I don't know why it sometimes loops like that.
