I almost didn't notice this today - I saw on PADX that Zhang Fei was up today, but who cares - old news. Oh - I didn't have a "clear" next to it. Free stone for 90 stamina.
Facts:1. Sonia Gran has a 50% Resolve. (5.6M HP)2. At 1% HP, it heals to full.3. But: If your current HP is less than its attack (around 10k), it will do a normal attack instead.4. But: Its damage buff takes priority over its normal attack.Shenanigans:- Reduce your HP to 1. (E.g. Goemon, Noah, Lu Bu, Durga, AALucifer. See PadGuide's "Suicide" active type for more.)- Do 5.6M damage without healing. (Difficult with Awoken Liu Bei leads, but my partner and I are considering Satan just for fun.)- It will buff, staying at 1HP instead of healing.
When you're playing a level and get a purple Dragon Star, don't tap it! Instead, finish the level and bring it back to Camp with you, where you can save it to merge with other Dragon Stars. Merge 3-5 of them, and you'll get a Magnificent Dragon Star, which you can tap 10-12 times for Dragon gems!
It may be tempting to use them for stamina or to wake up dragons, but save the purple gems. They can be used for many things later on in the game, and you'll want as many as you can have. Resist using them, and save them for the bigger Dragon Chests, which contain rare rewards.
When your dragons wake up, they will have a mind of their own and start harvesting your lowest-level items. Simply drag them to what you want them to harvest, or tap on them to get them stop harvesting. Don't let them waste their energy harvesting something you don't need them to harvest!
You may not have noticed, but if you replay levels, you can win more prizes! Some of the beginning levels are super easy to do, only require 1 chalice of stamina, and can give you rare rewards like a egg nests (not to mention any coins or bricks you might collect as well!).
This goes along with the last tip, but you can farm coins and bricks as well by playing levels with lots of fruit trees or stones. You can farm coins in Totem Shire 2 and stone in Quarry 8, or any other level with an adequate amount of space to harvest lots of coins/bricks and then merge.
While you're on your camp, you can go over your threshold for coins and bricks (for example, if you only have 300 brick storage and gain 350 worth of brick, the remaining brick will fall onto a pile somewhere in your camp for you to collect later). However, if you're outside of the camp, in one of the levels, any extra coins or bricks cannot be collected and will basically be wasted. As you get to higher levels in the game, you can really gain a lot of bricks and coins by merging and harvesting items, so don't waste them by having a full storage. Make sure you buy some dragon eggs, chests, or buildings before you leave camp, so you can maximum your collection potential in the levels!
Much like the stones in the game, coins can be gained by harvesting fruit trees. Coins are used to buy more dragons and buildings. When you drag a dragon onto a fruit tree, they'll retrieve a piece of fruit (pears, bananas, grapes, raspberries, etc.). Merge 5 pieces of fruit and you'll gain a random amount of tiny magic coins (worth 1 coin) and/or a bronze coin (worth 4 coins). Again, merge these coins to lead to the Magic Gem of Life, which is worth 25k coins.
Bricks are quite handy in the game—this currency can be used to buy chests, which contain more useful objects for your camp, and buildings, which allow you to hold more dragons (and help them sleep faster), hold more coins, or more bricks. In order to get the greatest amount of bricks quickly, drop your dragons on any rocks in the game to harvest. Then, just like everything else, continue to merge the bricks by 5. You can end up with powerful brick stones, which will give you up to 25,000 bricks upon tapping!
