How to Play & Game Questions

New to Dragons? Look no further.

Q. How do I play AQDragons?

Each dragon comes from their own egg. You simply tap the egg. Each tap will give you gems that are specific to that egg/dragon. Use the gems to buy your egg/dragon Upgrades that help it gather gems faster and faster.  The more you tap and the more Upgrades that you get, the faster your egg/dragon will earn more gems! Most Upgrades have Special Upgrades that help that upgrade earn more or even double the amount of gems earned from that Upgrade. Gather or purchase Dragon Keys to unlock new eggs and hatch new dragons, each with their own theme and story. Each dragon’s gems add to your Total Gems Per Second!

You can also earn an amount of gems each time you watch a sponsored video. Tap the “Watch a Video” option in the Options menu found in the upper right hand corner of the game.

Q. What are Upgrades?

Each dragon has a ton of Upgrades that are unique to that dragon. Use that dragon’s gems to purchase these upgrades and help it earn more on its own, make each tap of the gem worth more or even to earn gems while you’re offline.

Q. What are Special Upgrades?

Many Upgrades have Special Upgrades that can power up that Upgrade. Some add more gems per second for each instance of a purchased upgrade and some even DOUBLE the gems per second being generated by that upgrade. For example: If you purchase 3 of Drakenor’s “Quest For Coins” upgrades (each worth 3 gems per second) then Drakenor will be earning 9 gems per second. If you purchase “Quest For Coins” Special Upgrade called “Coin Polish” it will add a X2 upgrade to each “Quest for Coins” that you have purchased, so Drakenor will then be earning 18 gems per second. Most Special Upgrades can be purchased with gems but some very powerful Special Upgrades can only be purchased with Dragon keys.

Q. How do I get more Dragons?

There are 12 dragons to unlock in AdventureQuest Dragons, each with their own unique theme and story. Each new dragon must be unlocked with Dragon Keys.

Q. How do I get Dragon Keys?

There are several ways to obtain Dragon Keys:

  1. Each adult dragon has a Dragon Key Upgrade. Once you unlock this Upgrade, several Dragon Keys will be added to your total to help you unlock the next dragon egg.
  2. You can earn 1 free Dragon Keys PER DAY by watching a sponsored video. Tap the “Watch a Video” option in the Options Menu in the upper right hand of the game. You may not get the free Dragon Key on the first viewing so keep watching. (Watching videos will also earn you free gems for the dragon that you are currently playing!)
  3. You may purchase a pack of Dragon keys using the “Buy Dragon Keys” button in the Options menu found in the upper right corner of the game.

Q. How do I find the other Dragons and Eggs?

You can tap the Dragons Menu (the Egg icon) in the lower far left of the game. This will bring up the menu of all the dragons. Tap the dragon you wish to view.

Q. How do the Leaderboards work?

There are two leaderboards, World and Friends. Your rank in each leaderboard is determined by your Total Gems Per Second across all of your dragons. You MUST be connected to Facebook (coming soon!) in order to have your rank displayed on either leaderboard. Only other Facebook friends playing AdventureQuest Dragons will appear on your Friends leaderboard.

Q. How does Offline Gem Production work?

Offline Gem Production is an upgrade that you can purchase that allows the specific Dragon you are playing to earn a percentage of their Gems for up to six hours while you are offline and not actively playing the game. The more you upgrade it, the more you will earn.

Q. How do I use the Achievements Tab?

The Achievements Tab shows you how many Upgrades and Special Upgrades you have unlocked on that particular dragon so far. Use the Stats button to view your current dragon’s stats like how many times you have clicked or how long you have played.

Q. How do get the Cookie Dragon, Krumblor?

All you have to is invite 5 friends to play AdventureQuest Dragons! Once you receive your friend code, which you receive when the game loads or you can go to options under Invite Your Friends, simply share your friend code with 5 Facebook friends or choose one of the other ways you can share your code and then you will be eligible to receive Krumblor!

Q. Can I mute the sound?

Yes, you can use the Sound Effects button to turn sounds On/Off. The Sound Effects button can be found in the Options menu in the upper right hand corner of the game.

Q. How do I reset my Game Data?

If you have completed the game and wish to play through it again, you can reset your data using the “RESET Game Data” button found in the Options menu in the upper right hand corner of the game.

Q. Do I have to create an AdventureQuest Worlds, Artix Account or Original AdventureQuest account to play AdventureQuest Dragons?

Your Dragon Keys can only be restored if you purchased the Founder Package with 200 Dragon Keys for $9.95. The $1.99 and $4.99 packages are only for Dragon Keys are are consumable packages, so once you have spent those Keys, you cannot get them back. You can choose to restore your purchase and then you will receive your 220 Dragon Keys back from your Founder Package. Please note, this is only if you had to do a FRESH INSTALL due to one of the issues above, not if you have an existing game that you are still playing.
