Timer Missions Update - What You Need to Know

Greetings, Dragon royalty!

As a follow-up to the latest Year of the Player Update #5, we are happy to announce the release of Timer Missions, arriving in-game via a minor update around the same time as the weekly event. This will not require a download from the App or Google Play Store, but will instead require a restart of your active session.


Activating Timer Missions

From the announcement:

In order to activate the Timer Missions feature, all players must CLAIM the first prize in the new “Timer Mission Branch” found in the Withermoon Season. This is a free prize that will activate the feature for the main game, and Timer Missions will begin to appear in the zeppelin balloon. There are other prizes available in this branch that will reward timers for sigils, though these are optional prizes to claim, just like all other prizes available in the Season.

Once the feature is activated, Timer Missions will be active for the remainder of the Withermoon Season and no prizes will need to be further claimed to keep it active. Please Note: While anyone can unlock Timer Missions, the feature will only be available for players beginning at level 50.


The Mission Bonus Branch

Originally, we were planning for a Timer Mission Bonus Branch to join the Withermoon Season as a way to have a percent bonus on all Timers earned through the new feature. Due to some technical limitations, we’ve amended this plan to the following:

  • Timer Mission bonuses will now fold into the Egg Token Bonus branch that already exists in the Withermoon Season. This branch will now be renamed to the “Mission Bonus Branch” to imply that the bonus will affect both Egg Token and Timer rewards from the zeppelin balloon.
  • All Egg Token bonus prizes claimed will also affect Timer bonuses. We want to make sure that players who have invested in the Egg Token Bonus will receive the added benefit if they prefer the Egg bonus to Timers, and so that players who are claiming these bonuses for the first time will receive both at once.
  • All previously claimed bonuses from the Egg Token branch will be honored and will now include the Timer bonus, as well. In other words, nothing is being taken away!
  • Only the percentage boosts in the branch will be adjusted to add the Timer bonuses. All other prizes in the bonus branch will remain the same.
  • Since the Egg Token Bonus branch is now providing more value than originally planned, and in order to not devalue the early adopters, we will not be making any pricing adjustments to the branch.

TL;DR

  • Timer Missions are releasing tomorrow alongside the weekly event!
  • In order to activate the Timer Missions feature, all players must CLAIM the first prize in the new “Timer Mission Branch” found in the Withermoon Season.
  • Timer Mission bonuses will now fold into the Egg Token Bonus branch that already exists in the Withermoon Season. This branch will now be renamed to the “Mission Bonus Branch” to imply that the bonus will affect both Egg Token and Timer rewards from the zeppelin balloon.

We hope this helps as you navigate the new Timer Missions feature! Please discuss your thoughts on Timer Missions and ask questions in the Official Discussion Thread:
