Within the twisting halls of Spiral Keep, the scrying pool of the TideLord has been opened to all dragonkind. Those who show proper reverence to the god of the fathomless depths may use this workshop to peer into every possible future outcome for the dragons of their clan.
Click here to learn more about this update.
Within the Scrying Workshop, future-seeking dragons will find the tools and magics necessary to do the following at their leisure:
Assay BloodlinesFor clans that want to keep their bloodlines strong and diverse, this tool allows the scryer to see if two dragons are genetically eligible to breed with one another. Unlike the Nesting Grounds, this tool does not factor in breeding cooldowns and can be used freely on any pair of dragons.
Foresee ProgenyFor clans that are looking to produce a specific type of dragon or breed for a specific gene or color combination, this tool allows the scryer to see a sampling of possible hatchlings between any two dragons. As with the Nesting Grounds, these are not guaranteed, but merely a few possibilities.
Predict MorphologyQuite possibly the most unstable of the magics available within this workshop are the scrolls that allow the scryer to see every draconic morphological possibility at once. It is recommended that one not stare too long at the visions conjured by this tool, as they may render color-blindness. This tool allows the previewing of all breed, pattern, and color combinations.
Wavecrest Saturnalia Skin ContestThe end of this month will see all of dragonkind come together to celebrate theWavecrest Saturnalia, starting April 27th. We are running a skin contest for water-themed skins. Click the banner for additional information if you are interested in painting a homage to the water flight:

Marva’s HatsMarva appears to have finally perfected the magic act she bungled on April 1rst: How foolish! The results of her trick will continue to be available as random chest drops and Pinkerton offerings, and are not retired, though the hats themselves are.

Dragon Share Theme: Unusual Color CombinationsWe’re having a theme week in the forums. Share your favorite color-confused dragons! Be sure to check Dragon Share every Monday morning!

Neutral and wind element monsters also have a chance to rarely yield these items as drops in the Coliseum.

The newest addition to the Flight Rising Fairgrounds, Tidal Trouble, is now available to play! Immerse yourself beneath the waves and enjoy a relaxing puzzle game of popping bubbles.
Click here to learn more about this update.
Tidal Trouble is a slower-paced puzzle game of precision. Points are earned by popping three or more bubbles of the same color and clearing each puzzle will earn you a handful of treasure. Using the conch at the bottom of the screen, you will have to make sure your trajectory is just right and fire at the bubbles stuck to the top of the board.You will get extra points for bouncing your bubble off the walls of the board, or for clearing large chunks of bubbles all at once. The more points you earn, the better your treasure payouts!Take warning, though! While Tidal Trouble is played much more at your own pace than our other games, you won’t have unlimited chances to solve the puzzle. Every few shots, the board will shift down, leaving you fewer chances for mistakes. So, make sure you’re taking careful aim before firing.The color of the current bubble loaded into your conch will be indicated in the top right corner. You can also see the color of the next bubble in line so that you can plan ahead.In addition to the game itself, Tidal Trouble also includes a Puzzle Editor! To encourage creativity, we wanted to allow you all the chance to take part in the content creation process with us. You can access the Puzzle Editor from the main lobby screen.For more information about Tidal Trouble and its Puzzle Editor, please check out Amalythia’s guide here.(NOTE: Tidal Trouble may need balance changes and bug fixes along the way, so if you notice anything odd, please help us by submitting a report via our Tidal Trouble issue tracking thread in the Bug Report Forums.)Coliseum Loot ChangesIn our ongoing work to balance out the spread of loot and food that can be found in the Coliseum, many monsters across several venues have had loot adjustments in the form of drop rate changes and many new items! Below are some of the items that are now found on defeated enemies:

Welcome! Pull up a rock, have a seat, and let’s listen to some Words on the Wind! We have much to tell you and we have some very exciting news to share!
Fairgrounds/Coliseum
We asked, you gave us your feedback: Fairgrounds payouts are being slowly adjusted to make them a little more profitable and satisfying to play. We are on our second round of recent adjustments and will continue to evaluate Fairgrounds rewards and make adjustments where necessary.Coliseum is continuing to receive an overhaul to its loot tables and rewards curve. We’re aiming to have less chance of a lootless battle, more coliseum-exclusive food, trinkets, and materials, and a progressive loot curve with higher level venues awarding more and better items than lower levels. This is an ongoing process. Thus far Mire and Harpy’s Roost have been overhauled, with scattering of adjustments and new items across the lower level venues. Boreal Wood is next on the list to receive a complete overhaul. We hope that you’re as excited about these changes as we are!
Contact Us
As many of you have noticed by now, we’ve switched over to Zendesk for our ticketing. If you have something to report, an issue that requires resolution, a report about on-going on-site harassment, exploits, etc we ask that you send them through Contact Us for tracking purposes; this will enter it directly into our system, as opposed to e-mailing us!
Registration - Overall Progress
We’re getting there…we’re very close. We were thrilled to see the Trickmurk Circus stay stable after the very bumpy ride that first day was - and, truly, thank you for hanging in there with us. That was a very long day for everyone, players, staff, developers but we think it was worth it in the long run.What does this mean? It means we are one step closer to a registration window! Addressing the Festival of Lag was a priority and we’re happy with what we’ve seen so far.Basically: We’re in the final stages of testing the changes required for us to open registration!Please be aware this doesn’t mean we will be opening registration March but that we are in a place where we can focus all we have on completing that short list.

Exalting
The last month has seen some exciting Dominance battles! We’ve learned that when three Flights go for Dominance the community can Exalt upwards of 85,000 dragons in a week!These battles and player feedback during the first Battle Royale was very informative for us. We want you to Exalt your dragons, we want multiple Flights having friendly fights for the prize of Dominance every week.So what is Exalting exactly? It’s the mechanic to pull excess dragons out of the system as dragons can reproduce indefinitely. We understand that some players are concerned that Exalting is “killing” their dragons - it is not, Exalting is an honor for the Clan and Flight, something to celebrate. In order to address this, we are reviewing Dominance and Exalting and ways to make them more enticing. We want you to not only breed, trade, sell, dress up your dragons, we also want you to Exalt them.Since we have established how many dragons leave the system with three Flights competing for Dominance, I am more than happy to provide weekly totals in the event of four or more Flights actively competing for Dominance. I will not be able to provide per Flight breakdowns or regular weekly breakdowns, we don’t want the more mathematically inclined to figure out what each Flight needs to win. That takes all the fun out of the fight. (I’m looking at you, Lightning, with your Spreadsheets of Doom. Yeah, that’s right, I peeked at ‘em ;))
Long Term: Quality of Life Improvements
We hear you, we do. We read the Suggestions forum and more often than not, we see suggestions that we sometimes already have on our “to-do” list**. To name a few:
Inbreeding CheckerWe would like to give players a tool to input two dragon IDs and be provided with feedback on whether those dragons are eligible to breed.
Unrestricted Hatchling PreviewsWe are looking at the possibility of allowing players to input two dragon IDs and be shown the hatchling possibilities between them. This would allow you to do this at any time, with any dragons, and not be tied down to the Nesting Grounds.
Gene/Breed/Color PreviewsWe know this has been requested many times over the life of the site, and we understand how important it is to you, so we would like to see about making this a reality. This tool would allow you to preview dream dragons or plan for breeding projects with more ease. In the beginning, we originally stated that we did not want this to be available to keep things fresh and surprising, but now that the site is nearing its first year milestone, we feel that many of those early surprises have been out there long enough to warrant a feature a like this.
Live streaming artWe would loveto bring this back to you, however there are logistics to consider and it also depends on whether or not a breed/gene/item is a 100% surprise or not. Our art and administration team are also constantly crunched for time, so this would have to fit into the schedule.
**the “to-do list” is a list of things we fully intend on bringing to you but require stable registration and Akiri. 
Theme Weeks
This has been an amazing experiment, the creativity of the Flight Rising community is endless and we’ve loved seeing you share your Lairs.My original intent with Theme Week was to interact with all of you regularly throughout it. This was possible initially but additional job duties combined with how some of the topics absolutely blow up (hello Fashion week!), I couldn’t keep up.Going forward with Theme Week, there will be a requirement to choose your three favorite dragons to submit/share. At the end of each week, three dragons will be chosen to spotlight the next week and from those three, one will be chosen for a spotlight in the next edition of Words on the Wind; so be sure to select and submit your absolute best or favorite three for the theme! If you don’t have three, only one or two, that’s completely okay! Three is the maximum, not the minimum!What we have with Flight Rising at the moment is only the tip of the iceberg. We thank you for your patience while we work out the (admittedly many) kinks, baby Snapper herding, and grow and improve the experience for all of you!

From the Briny Depths

briny_depths.png



Some strange new creatures have been wriggling their way from the murky depths of the Sea of a Thousand Currents and skittering onto every surrounding shoreline. These denizens of the deep are part of a family of never-before-seen giant shrimp and appear to be harmless.



New Rare Familiars
Dragonkind has been abuzz since the first sightings of these gigantic decopods. Most recently, these megashrimp have been threatening the fishing areas of clans that find their homes near large water sources. Fortunately for the dragons, the creatures have very little interest in hunting hatchlings, and prefer to go after other forms of dragon seafood. You may now rarely encounter them while Fishing in any elemental region.

shrimp_blue.png shrimp_green.png



New Color Variants: Deepsea Bulb
In an effort to continue expanding the color options for many of our popular apparel pieces, we have added four new color variants for the Deepsea Bulbapparel. They are now stocking in the Treasure Marketplace.



Additional Updates

  • We are wrapping up improvements on and testing our registration system in preparation for another upcoming window. While we don’t have a date yet, it remains a primary focus.
  • We are performing playtesting on Tidal Trouble and having a great time using the Puzzle Editor; we think that you will all really enjoy making creative and challenging puzzles!

It is possible to log in and play Flight Rising again. Our apologies for the downtime. We will be monitoring the performance of the website for the remainder of the evening in case additional maintenance is necessary. However, today was a good day for the site overall. We uncovered a problem with our item codes that may have been a significant cause of lag on update days. They are now much gentler to our website. :)

Winter’s on the wing in the realm of Flight Rising, so why not celebrate with a bit of a tribute to our fine-feathered friends? Several species of birds have been migrating, making stops in the various elemental regions. These brave tweeters have no fear of dragonkind, and many are content to call heads, hides, and shoulders their temporary home.
Click here to learn more about this update.
The following colorful birds can be purchased from the Apparel page of the Gem Marketplace:

If value is more your style, the whole flock can be purchased as a bundle as well!

Birdskull Apparel: Additional ColorsWe’ve been listening to your feedback about broadening the spectrum of the Birdskull set you all love so much. So, in keeping with our feathered theme, we’re glad to announce that we’re adding five additional sets in the following colors, that will be available via the Treasure Marketplace, the Coliseum (tropical), andSwipp’s Swap Stand (aqua):

New FamiliarsIf that weren’t enough, a common pest has recently been domesticated. Many clans are befriending these birds and teaching them to carry messages for them. You can find these familiars in our Treasure Marketplace:

Additional Updates & Changes
We are in the midst of making final preparations and implementing optimizations to our registration system that will pave the way towards aregistration window. Although this had been set back by a number of outside factors, it is moving forward, and we wanted to let everyone know that registration will be available as soon as these changes are in, tested, and confirmed working. Thank you for hanging in there with us while we took care of some critical issues - we know we specified January/February and are sorry that this target was missed.
Akiri wanted us to send along word that he is doing better each day, and we are extremely happy that our friend is healing. He’s always been tough, so we had no doubt he would mend. Thank you again for all of your well-wishes and concerns; he feels very fortunate to have that positive energy from the community.
The Red Birdskull Legband trade will be leaving Swipp’s list at the end of the month. This item was not exclusive to Swipp and can be obtained from chests and through the marketplace.
Several dragons born on February 23rd and the morning of March 6th had an issue where the images could not be updated or redrawn. This has been corrected. Click the small “x” button next to the dragon’s name on lair view to regenerate its image or equip apparel to prompt a refresh if your image was displaying incorrectly.
An issue that prevented messages with item codes in them from being opened has been resolved.

Winter’s on the wing in the realm of Flight Rising, so why not celebrate with a bit of a tribute to our fine-feathered friends? Several species of birds have been migrating, making stops in the various elemental regions. These brave tweeters have no fear of dragonkind, and many are content to call heads, hides, and shoulders their temporary home.



The following colorful birds can be purchased from the Apparel page of the Gem Marketplace:

If value is more your style, the whole flock can be purchased as a bundle as well!

Additional Updates & Changes

  • We are in the midst of making final preparations and implementing optimizations to our registration system that will pave the way towards aregistration window. Although this had been set back by a number of outside factors, it is moving forward, and we wanted to let everyone know that registration will be available as soon as these changes are in, tested, and confirmed working.
