Have a Q , for Adam

Or anyone  who could  say why .
How  come  Shadow  Dragon was  the  last dragon we  could  buy with our coins?
You would think they would give us a few more..

Only the base (single element) dragons can be purchased with coins; Shadow is last as that is the last element to be unlocked. All other dragons must be bred, won in events or purchased with cash/gems/tokens.

CF explains the mechanics of the game but I suspect you are asking about the reason behind it?
I am only guessing here. The reason might lay on the fact that base elements dragons should be accesible at all time because they are the key to any breeding in the game. It seems fair enough because once you have all the base element dragons, you could get any other dragon. There is something compact about that, maybe even methodic, to show how all breedable dragons are available to you.
Having other dragons available by coins might cause an issue with special breedings like DOW or DOM. If you have some of them available at all time just by buying it would cause a discrepancy to other cases where the required dragons are not available which would cause a riot.

Hi LadyDraco - well in truth the decision behind this will have been made a long, long time ago, but I would suggest that Yoni is right about this. Since you need the base element to begin combining dragons, these should be available to purchase so that you can begin breeding specific element types once you hit the level, gold amount and desire to do so. Since these are the only ones that you actually 'need' (in that everything else can be bred from these base elements), they should be available through simpler means.
