I would have been less annoyed if the cash generating rates of metals have increased as well, but they haven't. Even with the changes it makes more sense breeding magnets and irons for cash. Unless my math is off. Oh well, it was a good ride while it lasted. Off to breed the new earth, I mean dodo. Extra habitat would've been great just about now.

Got my steel first try with metal+snow. . But second attempt failed. Failed also with the iron+frostfire. Out of gems, so now I wait before trying again.

As for Ice Age reference, I was thinking of Dodo birds. Aren't there a couple?

The 14 h metal/mine combo in breeding cave turned out to be my second steel. Out of gems now. Back to money making and gold chase. It's a pity the iron pays less now.
Could there also be a Lewis Carol reference? He mentioned dodo in Alice in Wonderland. Lewis Carol/Lewis Dodoson...

I believe yours is a much better guess!

I think I have a dodo dragon on the way...unless there is some chance of a 16-hour fail. But I can't think of another dragon that takes 16 hours, off the top of my head. Too bad it's just another recolour, though.

And YES, we really need more habitats, or better yet, BIGGER ones! Level 3 habitats would be so awesome, right about now. Backflip, are you listening?

Still waiting for the possibly second steel.

And a little bit annoyed because the metal competitor, that was almost finished, suddenly disappeared from the Colosseum and I'm stuck with an air one instead. Feeling kind of grumpy actually. I was looking forward to that 16th achievement. Not that I was sure of gold medal, but with metal dragon in Colosseum I at least had a chance.

Thinking about it, this has happened before, but having all other achievements I didn't bother. Until now.
Hey Yasha, same thing happened to me last night too.
Only had minutes left to go in the colosseum with metal, then it just disappeared and air appeared in there, no gems, this could be a glitch and if so, there's. O point even putting anything in there till its rectified, I may have also got a gold medal achievement

Now that the selling price of metal type dragons has dropped (except rust?) this will just make breeding them for money and help achieve gold status shrines that much slower....and just my personal opinion here cause its really annoying me now....why will BS not up the habitat allowance....great to have new dragons but I am having to hide more and more away to accommodate them plus having the focus on activating shrines to gold means displaying the biggest dragon earners and hiding the others....feels like this is starting to defeat the whole purpose of all that we go through to get one or two of every kind....the game play seems to be moving in another direction?
