Where are people finding the scroll statistics/egg counter that I see in signatures in the style of the Valkemarian Tales text box?

It is a little thing that TJ made for us. You can find Ruby Eyes' post about how to use it here.

Rifts change biomes every hour, and since the encyclopedia updates automatically whatever the encyclopedia says is which biomes they currently are in for the hour. They're always in coast, so sometimes you may see coast, coast and sometimes you see coast, other biome. The wiki is just trying to track them but it seems like they're entirely random. Same goes for Avea, except they're only one random biome at a time.

I can't actually see the encyclopedia myself.  When I said I looked at my DH's, I had had to ask him to put up his page.    He managed to get another one with that tip, though.  I am making him give me that third one, and if he can get another, he'll have to give me that one as well.  Nobody else in our group is even going to try. 

 

If we could have seen the release earlier, maybe, but unfortunately I had checked that day, but quit around noon.  I simply had other things I had to get done, and TJ managed to get us.  I don't actually find it funny or enjoyable, to be truthful.

 

But thank you to you kind folks who answered the question.

Go to hatcheries and click on eggs and hatchlings until they're unlocked in your encyclopedia, or visit Draghatch or the encyclopedia help thread for adults. You don't actually have to catch the dragons yourselves to access the info, just observe them.

This thread can help with that -

I thought there may have been a thread that was not about trading or points but only about catching "cave blockers" and then releasing them into the AP after their five-hour cooldown

This existed for a few of the past holidays, for the new release to help add more of the new breed to the cave even for people who are busy elsewhere during the holiday drop days.

Thank you and thanks to Shadowdrake, also.  Usually I always have enough of everything that I've never needed to know that.

Ruby Eyes, thank you! This could be what I was remembering.

Is trading dragons for other adoptable site's pets forbidden? I tenuously remember something like that, but can't find anywhere official where this is referenced. Thanks!

Yes. From the terms, which are at the bottom of every page:

“Buying” Eggs/Hatchlings/Dragons

 

Exchanging any sort of third-party currency—real or virtual—for eggs, hatchlings, or dragons is expressly forbidden.

Has anyone else noticed an issue with the encylopedia tallying observes/raises for info unlocks? I just filled out the adult req'ments I had for "Arcana" and it counted the observed adults and has now rolled the stat req'ment to: raise "x#" hatchlings, or observe "x#" hatchlings.

But I just viewed 6 adult "Carina", as it's entry says I need to raise OR observe 1 adult, and none of the info looks new and my counter still says I need to raise or observe 1 more.

Is there a limit on dragons that count for observing-vs-raising per day or something?

Thanks for any insight or help.

Each factoid needs a specific number of adult or hatchling obsevations/raisings. Every time you fulfill one requirement, you'll get the factoid and can work to unlocking the next. It has always worked that way.

The only limit is that you can observe each individual dragon/creature only once every 30 days. If you think it didn't count your observation, go to the dragon's lineage page and click the image from there, that usually works.

Thank you @Ruby Eyes. Maybe I just managed to miss the new factoid on the Carinas then 😅, I remembered the every 30 days rule, just -as my confusion prolly shows- couldn't remember if there were others.

Prize dragon raffle seems a little wonky.  I have two grown rift dragons from coast but my raffle entry counter is reading 1/3.  :dry:  38w0V  d7mId

It's still bugged.  Had two avea dragons from coast grow up this evening and the counter only counted one.  Now standing at 2/3. :angry: Piz9A rfL0f

 

The saga continues.  Had a coastal waverunner grow up yesterday rnkA1 that I just now realized.  There was NO notification I had qualified to enter raffle like we have become accustomed to.  Almost lost the fact I was still trying to get entered in the raffle with the new release excitement.  Raffle qualifying notifications are broken now too?

There's an Encyclopedia Helpers thread in Site Discussion. Hatcheries are good for clicking hatchies and eggs.

Has anyone caught any of the "glowing in the shadows" eggs in the jungle since the release day ? (Not that I even saw them there then....)

Were they ever there? I thought it was only the pygmies that were in the jungle and forest and that those "glowing in the shadows" were only in the forest. But I was late to the party, so...

Hey, anyone notice the funkiness going on with the AP? The eggs are no longer in order based on how much time they have left, least to greatest, but they're mixed. I see eggs with 3d 2h left at the bottom with 4d 3h & mostly 3d 11 h to 3d 18 hr mostly at the top.

 

I don't mind it so much, it may give me a chance to grab the new release eggs with 7/21 date & it's interesting.

I've noticed that too, I thought about posting about it but then thought maybe I'd misunderstood how the eggs normally sorted? But yeah, the times aren't in order. Right now the bottom eggs are at 4d1h, but every few refreshes a 3d-something will be in that area.

Yep yep! Exactly :)  Thanks for confirming that there isn't something wrong with my computer :D  No problems other than that change

I was wondering about the AP time phenomenon, too, but right now I noticed another apparent change related to egg times.

 

It looks like the API now returns the same "time left" that we see on the dragon's view page, instead of 30 minutes lower. I just tried to ER an egg that would be able to hatch in less than 30 minutes, but the hatcheries still display it as 4d 1h and won't let me ER it.  :(  (Yes, the time on the view page always rounds up so it would be 4d 1h even if it's actually 4 days and 3 minutes, but the time displayed by hatcheries used to be different and would have been 4d 0h in this case.)

 

If that change is intended and meant to stay, I'll really miss that "30 minute difference feature", but it is logical to make the API give the same information as the view page.

Looks like the AP has returned to "normal"?
