Views are one of the stats that must be accumulated in order to raise an egg to adulthood. A dragon’s view counter is incremented any time someone views the dragon’s image, even if they’ve already seen that dragon before.
Unique Views are one of the stats that must be accumulated in order to raise an egg to adulthood. A dragon receives a unique view only the first time a person views the dragon’s image.
Clicks are one of the stats that are accumulated in order to raise an egg to adulthood. A dragon receives a click when someone clicks its image and views its stat page. Clicks are more impactful than Unique Views or Views towards an egg/hatchling’s growth.
A hatchling that is “frozen” will not become an adult. Hatchlings will not continue receive views, unique views, and clicks after they have been frozen. Hatchlings can be frozen due to the freeze action.
Shards are the currency used to buy eggs in the Market. They are earned through various activities around the site.
A transfer allows you to move eggs or hatchlings between users. Transfers are one-sided; you will not receive anything in return. Transfers can be created with the teleport action that is available to specific breeds of dragon.
Upon using the teleport action, you are given a “claim link” that may be shared with other users to allow them to accept the eggs/hatchlings.
A trade, unlike a transfer, is two-sided. A trade may be created by using the teleport action. After creating a trade, other users may make offers on your trade. If you accept an offer, the eggs/hatchlings are swapped.
