In this sub-menu, the Trainer can see all the past and current news announcements related to the game. Each news release will have a timestamp (excluding the year), a representative image and one or more tags (such as News, New Content, Event, Tips, Community, Contests, Preview, Sale, and Video). As suggested, the news is usually about upcoming Game Updates, sweepstakes, large events, Dragon of the Week, Dragon of the Month as well as other topics.

Trainers are able to choose between fifteen languages for their game: American English, Standard German, Italian, Peninsular Spanish, Japanese, Korean, Standard Chinese, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian, Turkish, Modern Standard Arabic, Thai, Indonesian, and Traditional Chinese. The language will affect the Global Chat, as each language has its own separate chat.
There are twelve different notifications which indicate when an action in the game is complete. The notifications are enabled by default, but they can be disabled/reenabled either all at once or individually. These are:
- Dragons have finished breeding
- Construction or the upgrade of a building is completed
- Food is ready to be harvested from Farms
- Most of the Habitats have reached their Gold capacity
- Exploration of a ruin is complete or Chronos is ready to use its power
- Clan Event-related notifications (such as when a Clan Event has started, a recipe is finished or Clan Siege Sprites are ready)
- The Battle Energy is replenished on the Campaign Map or in the Dragon League
- Keys are refilled in the Enchantment League
- The Whale-Mart is available
- The Daily Prize can be collected
- The VIP Status is about to expire or has expired
- New Weekly Dragon Pieces are available in the game
For new Trainers, a screen with Arya will pop up asking the Trainer whether to enable their notifications or not. Regardless of the answer chosen, notifications remain active by default and must be manually disabled.
The game might occasionally send a different type of notification that can not be found under this menu, such as new bundles or events. Disabling these notifications can only be done from the app settings of the device the game is being played on.
The volume of advertisement videos is not affected by the in-game sound settings, even if the audio is completely disabled. The audio sound of advertisements can only be disabled from within the settings of the device the game is being played on.
Trainers can choose a nickname for themselves and have it displayed to other Trainers. Setting the nickname for the very first time is free while any subsequent change will cost 5 Gems each. Confirming the nickname is then done through either the button or the button, respectively. The Trainer can also have the game suggest a random name through the button.
The nickname is limited to 24 characters and can not be colored. Spaces are cropped before or after the nickname.
Android and Windows Trainers have the possibility of lowering or increasing the quality of their game's graphics in order to increase performance. This option is not available to the iOS platform. Android Trainers can do it through the button while Windows Trainers can do it through the button. From here, Trainers can choose between low, medium and high. Once the desired value is chosen and the button is selected, the game will then prompt the Trainer to restart their game in order for the new settings to take effect. The game will preview the changes live, through a sample image, as the graphics are adjusted by the Trainer.
Connect To Social Network
Through this button, the Trainer can connect to various social platforms in order to store their game progress or even earn rewards. There is always at least one connection option (for some platforms, a second option might also be available).
If an account already exists on a device and the Trainer wishes to connect to another account, a conflict screen will appear after connecting to the second account. The screen will prompt the Trainer to either keep the current account or switch to the other one.
Log Into Facebook
The option to log into Facebook is available to all platforms and Trainers. Pressing this button will bring up a prompt screen requesting the Trainer to log into their Facebook account in order to connect it to their game. Connecting the game to Facebook for the very first time will reward the Trainer 10 Gems and the Prairie Dragon.
Log Into Secondary Network
Android users (except for FireOS users who have no secondary network option) can connect their game to their Gamer ID through the button. Windows users can connect their game to their Xbox Live account through the button.
A secondary network for iOS users was available prior to the release of iOS 10, namely Game Center. This app was discontinued after the release of iOS 10, but the game can still be connected to it (albeit outside the game) through the device's own settings, and saved files can be retrieved from it. This is reflected inside the game where the Trainer's Game Center username is also displayed right under the option to connect the game to Facebook.
This sub-menu allows Trainers to choose one out of three different options for the privacy of their profile in regards to other Trainers visiting their island.
- Default: Any visitor can see the Trainer's Dragons' levels and can check their Player Profile. The "last online" status can only be seen by friends and Clanmates.
- Hidden: Only friends and Clanmates can see the Trainer's Dragons' levels and can check their Player Profile and their "last online" status.
- Private: No visitor, whatsoever, can see the Trainer's Dragons' levels or can check their Player Profile or "last online" status. Additionally, the Trainer will also not be able to receive friend requests or Clan invitations nor receive log updates about visitors. The Trainer will be able to send friend requests and Clan invitations to other Trainers.
This sub-menu deals with general information about the game, as well as with Gameloft's policies.
Vital game information, such as the current version, the Gameloft Trainer ID and the Trainer's server. Additional information is also presented, such as the credits (the team behind the game), software license, disclaimers, copyrights and other information. Unlike other menus, this one is automatically scrolling.
Help & Options
This button will display several informative panels related to the current update. Most of these will have a button that can be used to access that new feature directly.
This button will open the first page of the in-game help, where information about feeding and leveling Dragons is found.
This button will open the ninth page of the in-game help, where information about the islands can be found.

This option is only available to Trainers whose device is connected to a keyboard. Selecting it will display four pages, each with several keyboard shortcuts for opening interfaces or menus or undertaking actions in the game and an image for each page, representing the part of the game in which these shortcuts can be used. These are:
- Page 1 - Main User Interface
- Page 3 - Battles (except the Enchantment League)
- Page 4 - Main User Interface
- Mouse Click (any) - A prolonged click and then a release allows the Trainer to pick up their Habitats and move them around without having to hold the button down. Clicking again in the decided viable spot allows the Habitat to be relocated to that space.
Link A Device
This option is used to port the Trainer's game progress onto a device having the same platform and server as the origin device. After the button is selected, a 10-minute code will be generated that can be entered on the desired device by accessing the same screen and selecting the button and then adding the generated code.
This option is not available to iOS & Windows Trainers.
This option can be used to make a video recording of the gameplay. When the button is pressed, the button in the upper-right corner of the screen will appear and the Trainer must then press it in order to give recording permission to the game. The first button will then change to the button while the second one will change to the button and pressing either will stop the recording.
This option is not available to the Windows platform, as the Windows OS has its own software for recording game clips.
In some cases, due to faulty internet connection, caching problems or an incomplete update, the game might be missing partial content. The amount of megabytes shown on the left indicates the size of the downloadable content the game can currently retrieve, while the amount on the right indicates the total size of content the game should normally have. The button is used to download the missing parts. Downloading the content can be cancelled through the 60px button. When the entire content is present in the game, the button will be grayed out.
