From Dragon Mania Legends (DML) Wiki
The Tyrants of Dragolandia shattered the Chronosian Seals to capture the great Dragon, Chronos. When the tyrants broke the Chronosian Seals, Professor Hogwin hid the shards anywhere he could, so they wouldn't be destroyed completely. In the end, Hogwin hid them throughout the Islands in various Ruins.
Chronos is named after the Greek mythical being of time. Chronos was encased in pale gray stone and sits covered in patches of undisturbed snow. Its seals lost within each ruin are scattered beneath the statue, either etched into the stone platform, or glowing a faint white or teal depending on whether the relevant seal has been forged. Its posture appears stoic and strong, its large wings held up proudly.
Chronos is freed by exploring the Ruins, and finding and forging the missing shards.
The following function buttons appear when Chronos is selected:
- – Information, for brief information about Chronos.
- – Chronosian Seals, for viewing shards or forging seals.
- – Powers, for breeding (appears after Chronos is freed).
Six Chronosian seals must be forged, each Ruin has three shards of a certain seal, which must be collected through repeated visits:
|Chronosian Seal Found
|Seal of Darkness
|Seal of Adventure
|Seal of Secrets
|Seal of Souls
|Seal of History
|Seal of Dragonfire
See Ruins for complete information about obtaining the seals.
Whenever a piece of a seal is found, it affects the appearance of the platform around Chronos' statue:
- First Piece: A new stone appears with a black seal.
- Second Piece: The seal becomes teal.
- Third Piece: The seal begins to glow teal.
- Forged Seal: The seal glows both teal and white.
Viewing Shards or Seals
The current collection of seals (if any are possessed) is accessed by selecting Chronos, then pressing the button. When all three shards of a seal are collected, the option to forge the respective seal appears.
Forging a seal is done by pressing the button, pressing the Forge button, and then confirming the choice by pressing the Forge Seal! button. If a seal has missing shards, the Find This Seal button appears instead, pressing it takes the Trainer to the ruin for which the needed shard(s) is found. Once all the seals are forged, the Awaken Chronos button appears after selecting the Chronos button.
When awakening, Chronos' stone body begins to crack, starting with its head. Chronos shakes violently with the force of its unleashing (see video). It glows a brilliant white before finally breaking free, stretching its wings and flying straight up into the air, then returning to its mountain platform and letting out a victorious roar. Chronos remains stationed there for good in its unleashed form.
It now bears the resemblance of a blue Western-style dragon, quadrupedal with a set of wide, magenta wings. Three large claws are observed on each foot, it has two same colored spikes on its wide muzzle, and several more on the back and sides of its head. Its narrow eyes glow red with white irises, and its throat and belly are coated in large, armor-like, pale pink scales. The end of its tail sports a triangular point.
All currently running timers decrease by 6 hours when a seal (except for the last) is forged, regardless of Chronos' level. When Chronos is freed, at its initial level, its powers decrease most time-involved processes by 6 hours every 4 days. This ability can be used unlimited times, though a cooldown timer appears under Chronos until it can be used again.
Time-involved processes affected by forging seals or the power of Chronos include: Breeding, Hatching, growing Food, unlocking and building or upgrading buildings, unlocking and exploring Ruins, awakening secondary Elements, training in the Dragon Academy, clearing Obstacles, Gold Vault cooldown, ascending Dragons and Fountain of Youth-related activities.
Conversely, the unaffected timers are:
- Replenishing of Battle Energy.
- Anything related to Clans or Events.
- Gold production.
- Chronos' own cooldown timer.
- Prizes given in exchange for watching videos.
- Reset times of regularly scheduled items, including (but not limited to):
When using its powers to speed up time, Chronos leaps into the air to hover briefly. After hovering, with a single flap of its wings, it begins to perform several reverse aerial flips around the image of a standard clock whose hands move rapidly around it. Chronos lets out a roar in the air before sedately returning to its station at the top of the mountain, its task performed, at which time it must rest to cool down.
After Chronos is unsealed, the seals can be found again and the platform around its statue returns to its initial appearance until the shards are found again. Chronos can be leveled a total of four times, each level decreasing the cooldown time of its power by 12 hours:
|3 days 12 hours
|2 days 12 hours
Chronos acquires a Chronoid each time the seals are forged again and its powers grow. Chronoids are Dragons that closely resemble their larger counterpart, though there are subtle differences. Their muzzles are noticeably shorter and rounder, and their bodies are stockier. The color of their eyes is the same as but are more almond-shaped, and they have fewer, blunted spikes on the back and sides of their heads. They have pink, armor-like scales covering the front of their throats and bellies, and their short, wide tails taper to a point.
As they fly around Chronos, they leave behind starry purple flight trails. The Chronoids have no power, no elements, no rarity, cannot be used in any way, and serve no other purpose apart from their quantity indicating Chronos' current level.
The Trainer interacts with this character in several dialogues, divided into sections below.
- Islands, for information about Ruin locations and unlock costs to find shards.
- Ruins, for detailed information about finding shards in the Ruins, time reduction for finding one, and their drop rates.
- Update 2.7: Added four levels to Chronos, achieved by re-obtaining Ruin shards.
- Update 2.1: A notification toggle was added under the Options Menu > Notifications menu for when Chronos is ready to use its powers.
- Update 1.1: Introduced.
