Same boat here. I need Gold Olympus #2 so I can finish my egg display island. Have the EBI dedicated to getting one right now. Already had a Bronze fail. Just got another Olympus cooking but won't know what it is until tomorrow.

I have the EBC breeding Blooms so I can finally finish my gold statues. I only have Plant, Cold and Lightning to go.

Jtfields, was it by design that you're left with the plant, cold and lightning statues? So far, I have gold statues of earth, fire, lightning and plant -- doing metal (41/50) and air (25/50) now by breeding chrome. Good luck with your 2nd gold Olympus. The next step for you, I guess, would be the crowning of the dragons.

It wasn't necessarily by design. I knocked out Water, Earth, Air and Fire with Panlongs. Back before things were so hectic with the number of limiteds we now get, I would have down time and would breed Magnetic dragons just to sell (best $/breeding time). I got the Metal shrine leveling some of those Magnetics up before selling them. That left me with Cold, Plant and Lightning. I think I'm further along on Cold than the others so once Cold is gold I'll drop the Blooms and go with something else.

Not sure what comes after that. I may try to level all my dragons to 15. I may try to crown one or two but that's probably it. I believe it takes something like $500,000 worth of food to crown just one. Don't think I'm up for crowning all of them unless I keep playing this game for years.

Just realized tomorrow is Thursday. What are the odds we get a new dragon?

The funny thing is that I never noticed that we usually get new dragons on Thursdays until the Solar Eclipse came out.

I don't think we will get one this week....but looking at the lunar calendar, there is a lunar eclipse on Nov 28. Maybe next week?

Is BFS a US company? If they stuck to their Thursday schedule for next week they'd be releasing it on Thanksgiving which is a major US holiday (second only to Christmas).

Yes they are a US company in Boulder, Colorado. I remember that when they released the Firework dragon, people who didn't live in the US were mad, because it celebrated an only American holiday, so I don't think they will release anything for Thanksgiving.

But the Thursday thing is only recent...they have been know to do releases on other days of the week. So don't always assume it will the same
