  1. Please read the OP. You will notice that dungeons are near the bottom of the list. They are quite literally the last thing I am thinking about. Anyone that is waiting and looking forward to them is misguided as it hasn't been a promised thing from me ever.

    Edited to be a bit nicer.

  2. Cool, yet everyone still gets dragon stone fragments that tease them about the possibility, so why are they still a major item in the loot rotation?

    Does it look good to new players when they fight mobs and get fragments and ask what to do with them, and the answer is "they're for a project that's been in development for 10 years but is also the lowest priority"

  3. Those people have been giving wrong answers then, I am sorry to hear that some people have been trying to scare off new players in that way. Feel free to send a report in about players that are being hostile to new members (Speaking generally, not necessarily about Dragon Fragments/Stones).

    That project has not been in development for nearly 9 years (I just double-checked to verify that timetable). Regardless, I have never done anything directly towards that project, it was included at the bottom of this list more as a meme than anything else. I would sooner consider piddling at a general dungeon experience before touching dragons or the tombs that may contain them.

    As for why they are still a mob drop, "why not" is my thought. There's an argument to be made, that cutting off the drop now or another time in the past artificially creates rarity. They are no more useless now than they ever have been. A lose lose situation.

  4. Who knows, maybe we can use the Stones for something in the Empires we make in the Wild. :) Really wishful thinking.

    I like getting the stones as the more I collect the more of a warm fuzzy I get with regards to my hording. :p:cool:
  5. I think you're right, but on the other hand, if it hadn't been mentioned on the list, people probably (also) would've made comments about it. ;)

  6. Heh, interesting to see some OG players still mentioning Dragon Tombs.

    Although... seeing that the dungeons idea is still alive is still very captivating!!! :eek:

  7. I never gave a thought about dungeons because they are at the bottom of the list. However, here's a suggestion: have Chickeneer "hire" a dedicated developer to secretly work on the dungeon (⬇️🌎😈💉) programming. I use the word "hire" loosely because the developers here do not actually "earn" money (I think). OTOH, they could "hire" someone for so many rupees/hour. :)

    P.S. Don't look at me. I'm not a developer/programmer.
