    As you said it: its the programming. Runewaker just decided to code this for nvidia systems, they can run it just fine, tho no system can run this game 100% crash free :D thats just the nature of the game

    But your installation problems might not be your system, browse the forum, there are some threads with solutions for installation problems ^^ AMD should just give you some more laggs and boss bugs in 3 specific dungeons, apart from that its playable

    Yes powder does always work, there is no fail when using it ^^

    If you want a certain dragon make sure to actually make it 100% cause youre gonna be angry when you make it 99% purple and 1% blue and then hatch the blue....

    BTW you can find a complete hatching guide here: [Guide] Dragon Hatching System

    You have to take into consideration that the whole balancing of the game is different. On DP you had to PAY for any nice dragon you wanted, and it was a good amount of diamonds too. Here in SH you only pay for the other items like costumes, so obviously they had to re-balance the marketplace.

    I don't think it was a bad thing tho. Everything in DP was easy to get, and in SH you need to put much more effort into it, so it feels more like an accomplishement once you reach your goal :)

    I had to change my button quite a few times aswell, as any sort of special key would sometimes just get ignored by the game :D the numbers on numpad seem to work best for me

    other than that, did you try running the game with admin rights? the folder for the screenshots requires adminrights, so it might actually be your game doesnt have the allowance to save the screens ^^

    The only Hidden Quest that never got out of my mind is the one in Wintertide, where you get the key to a bank safe and after you give that Key to the owner you get a riddle, saying "The treasure is in the left eye that gazes upon the Lake"... i never could solve this one and i'm pretty sure there doesnt even exist an actual ending to this, but if anyone knows where to complete this please tell me ^^

    Nope Ezeriel is the normal Duskreaver Model ^^ (just looked that up XD) there is also a fat Duskreaver Model for Deep Abyss etc but i dont like that one, probably not going to draw that lol

    For those interested, i wanted to show the making Process of the Duskreaver Signature

    Step 1: Sketch

    First i sketch the rough anatomy, then refine it to have all important body parts there (the picture for that failed me qq)


    Step 2: Add Detail and Draw all the correct lines in a different Colour (cause pencil on pencil is hell after 2x of redoing the lines)


    Step 3: Now that the Sketch is done, scan it and open it in your Art Programm, i use Paint Tool Sai and Opencanvas 6, depending on what i do i use either of them. Now for the Lineart Paint Tool Sai has an awesome Feature: i draw some random black Lines, that just need to barely add up with the Line on my sketch


    Its a Mess, i know lol BUT if i do this in a Lineart Layer i can correct every single Line now by pressing CTRL i can form the Lines freely and it will make beautiful Curves that i could never draw by Hand :D


    This is before and after, its Magic! Well i'd love it to be magic but actually its really Hard work itself. A little Time Comparison: The whole Paper Sketch took me ~2h with 3 different Layouts (of which i didnt like 2 in the end.) The Lineart Step took me ~4h now + adding the Shadows, another 1-2h....

    So yeah, now that this is done we got a clean Lineart and only need to apply Shadows in a seperate Layer:


    And its done! The PNG file without a background is in the Signature Dragon Thread if anyone wants to colour it :D

    Sooooo anyone remember that Duskreaver sketch from (apparently) exactly half a year ago? :D

    Few days ago i finally had the urge to finish it and here i present you a Signature Duskreaver Lineart!



    The first one has a white Background so you can actually see it and the 2nd one is the png Lineart. If you want to colour it you need to download the 2nd one and after youre done colouring Resize it down to a max. of 200 pixels height so it will fit in your Signature ;)

    I don't know how fast i will be able to colour them myself, but i will do Magical Silver and Ezeriel Frostshadow for sure!

    ok for the first one, there was somewhere a very detailed post on what exactly each dmg type does, i'll try to find that for you (as i myself only know maybe half of it cough)

    But basically the special dmg types dont get affected by your stats but the other way around. So you only can get them by dragon shards or skills or buffs, but they dont only do dmg but also have some other effects (which is explained in the thread i'll search it up) Each respective speacial damage type aslo hase a speacial defense type , while magic damage and physical damage get blocked by magic defense and armor.

    Magic damage and physical damage is your standard damage type, based on your class and which actually is based off your respective stats. (and your weapon)

    The spirit shield is actually "invisible" in number, but you can see it when you look at the icon of a monster, there is a bar next to them that represents their spirit shield. When the shield is down you can then stagger them for a period of time, until the shield recovers again (yes, it doesnt stay down). Now there is difference between normal mobs, which take sometimes only 2-3 hits and the shield is gone, and elites or even boss monsters. Those take way more hits to reduce the spirit shield, and you only have a few seconds of staggering once its down.

    So weither you want to use that skill is up to your playstyle, i myself usually dont look at the spirit shield, you can also kill them with the shield up ^^

    Hope i could help~

    Edit: found the thread, but it was in german. maybe you want to give it a try anyway: Here

    but basically they show how the dmg is calculated on which types. The 2 special effects i remember is Natural Dmg also improving your healing skills (very good for healing oracles) and Dragonspell Dmg having an armor penetration bonus.

    DragonProtector You skipped one so i'm just going to reply to it myself

    Granted, but now your dragon just sleeps the whole time.

    I wish i would have the ravenstorm wings in real life. ^-^

    Granted! good luck finding a door to fit through with those enormous wings. Also they are too small to actually fly...

    I wish i could actually use coffeine to keep me awake XD (Tea doesnt work anymore)

    UPDATE: The Guild is currently inactive since ~march already. I am not part of the guild anymore and the original Leader has not come back to the game so it is practically dead rn.
