Eternal Dragons has been slowly going through their first dragon sale, releasing a new dragon class each week. Today, they are almost done with the Genesis Dragons sale. But the fun is just beginning. Players with multiple dragons can “nest” them for rewards in the form of descendant egg fragments and Eternium, the game’s token/currency.
Eternal Dragons is preparing to release its ninth batch of 1,000 NFT Dragons on September 6. This penultimate Genesis sale features Guardian Dragons, protectors of the flock. If you’re not already on the priority whitelist, it’s probably too late for this set. These sales are going fast. But there may still be a chance to get in on the last batch. Keep an eye on the Eternal Dragons website.
But, for those who already have a stable of Dragons, or are interested in building one, then you may want to know about the nesting system in Eternal Dragons.
Nesting in Eternal Dragons
The Eternal Dragons Nesting system is a gentle staking program that rewards holders with offspring eggs. The nesting program began on August 10 and lasts for 10 weeks, or until the initial batch of 500 eggs has been distributed. Players earn egg fragments by completing nesting quests. These involve holding a certain number of Dragons in your wallet. Nesting periods begin on Wednesdays and last exactly one week. Players must keep dragons in their wallets for the entire week.
Eggs will not be distributed until the end of the nesting period, so the fragments accumulate. You can only receive whole eggs (i.e. 1.75 fragments collected will yield 1 egg). Descendant eggs are used to generate the second generation of eternal dragon NFTs. However, this is not free. In addition to having to find two Genesis Dragons to fertilize the egg, players will also have to spend Eternium, the main game token for Eternal Dragons.
But fear not! Now, dragon owners can also earn Eternium tokens with their nests. Players with nesting dragons will need to tweet about their nest each week to earn rewards. Players must use the “Tweet to Nest” button on their home page. page by 12:59 p.m. CEST on Tuesday to be eligible for rewards that week. Eternium rewards are based on the rarity of the Nest and the number of retweets the player receives. One retweet will double the rewards, while ten retweets will triple them!
What is Eternal Dragons?
Eternal Dragons is an auto-battle game built on the Solana blockchain with Dragons as the combat units. With many different classes, position-based abilities and elemental affinities, Eternal Dragon is sure to offer plenty of room for different strategies and team builds. Dragons have base stats of hit points, elemental power (magic damage) and physical power (physical damage).
In addition, units in Eternal Dragons have a number of other attributes that affect their combat abilities. First, each unit has a default skill. This is the basic, and most commonly used, skill for that Dragon. It can be an attack, a heal, a buff/debuff, or even a combination. Units also have basic stats that they prefer. This will matter when players add items to units, as combining items with base stats will provide better combat value. Dragons also have skill sets and class skills. A skill set is a collection of abilities. Only dragons with a matching skill set can use those abilities. And, as you might guess, Class Skills are specific to certain dragon classes.
In addition, each Dragon class has certain other classes with which it likes to associate. These classes are called “neighboring dragons. Neighboring dragons share skill sets. And they will tend to have class skills and abilities that work well together. Dragons also receive bonuses by sharing affinities with their teammates. Each NFT has an associated affinity, such as Earth, Air, or Void.
