Customer Care Icon.png Customer Care – Opens (in-game on some platforms) Gameloft's Customer Care while automatically conveying Trainer information such as age, gender, client ID, language, country, platform, game version, and firmware among others.


News Icon.png News – Lists past and current news announcements related to the game with 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, and other topics.

Whenever unread news is available, a red notification circle displays the number of new articles in the top-right corner of the button. Additionally, in the bottom-right of the screen, the Trainer can access a collection of various videos.


Community Icon.png Community – Lists 5 different links related to the game using the  Go  button next to each option.

Stay Informed Screen.png

For new Trainers, a screen with Arya pops 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. Notifications mat be depicted by an Exclamation (Red) Icon.png exclamation mark, or by a number with a count (that tallies either the number of items/tasks that can be completed, or the number of notifications received).

The game may occasionally send a different type of notification that cannot 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.

Sound Settings

  Sound Settings   – Allows sound and music volume to be controlled, enabled, or disabled by pressing the Sound Icon.png button.

The volume of advertisement videos is not affected by 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.

Scroll Speed

  Scroll Speed   – Allows for adjustment of scrolling speed. The difference is most significant when navigating through large areas of the game, such as the islands or the Campaign Map.

Select Nickname

What's Your Name.png

  Select Nickname   – Allows selection or change of the player's nickname, which is visible to all players. Setting the nickname for the first time is free, while subsequent changes cost 5 Gems each. Confirming the nickname is done by pressing either the Done button or the Done   5 Gems Icon.png button, respectively. The Trainer can also have the game suggest a random name by pressing the Random Name button.

A nickname is limited to 24 characters, and spaces are removed before or after the nickname.


Android and Windows Trainers have the possibility of lowering or increasing the quality of their game's graphics to increase performance. This option is not available on the iOS platform. Android Trainers can do change graphics quality by pressing the   GFX Quality Settings   button, while Windows Trainers can by pressing the   Graphics Settings   button. From here, Trainers can choose between low, medium, and high. The game previews the changes live, by providing a sample image, as the graphics are adjusted. Once the desired value is selected and the Apply button is pressed, a game restart prompt appears for the new settings to take effect.

Low Graphics Medium Graphics High Graphics


  Controls   – Available only when the device is connected to a keyboard; pressing this button opens a menu for toggling on or off the display of Key Hints, or shortcut keys over buttons (see Keyboard). Key Hints provide keyboard shortcut keys for opening interfaces, opening menus, or other game actions.

The keys for Codex, Clan, and Enchantment can also be changed by selecting the existing shortcuts displayed in the menu, then pressing a new keyboard button to replace the existing one.

Connect To Social Network

  Connect To Social Network   – Allows connections to various social platforms to store game progress or earn rewards. There is always at least one connection option (for some platforms, more options may also be available). Connection happens by choosing an option, then pressing the Connect button.

If an account already exists on a device and the Trainer wishes to connect to another account, a conflict screen appears after connecting to the second account. The screen prompts to either Keep This to keep the current account, or Switch To This to switch to the other.

Log Into Facebook

  Log Into Facebook   – Allows connection to Facebook to save data, and is available to all platforms and Trainers; pressing it opens a prompt requesting log in to Facebook Facebook Logo.png account to connect it to the game. First connection to Facebook rewards 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 Microsoft account by pressing the Microsoft button; Windows users can also connect by pressing the same button.

Apple ID can be used for iOS users as a secondary option for saved games to be retrieved.

Privacy Settings

  Privacy Settings   – Allows one of the following choices for player privacy regarding other Trainers visiting, viewing Player Profile, seeing Last Online status, and sending invites or friend requests:

  • Public: No restrictions for other players. But only Friends and Clan mates can see the Trainer's "Last Online" status.
  • Private: Only Friends and Clan mates can visit the Trainer's island or check their profile.

Important: The "Private" (privacy) setting, is no longer private as it was before Update 7.6 when its function matched its naming. This appears to represent a "Clan Members-Only" setting rather than "Private". For a fully "Private" privacy setting, see the Lone Dragon setting instead.
  • Friends Only: No one besides Friends can visit the Trainer's island, check their profile and clan, invite them to a clan, and see their "Last Online" status. Friend requests from Clan mates can be received.
  • Lone Dragon: No one can visit the Trainer's island, check their profile and clan, invite them to a clan, send friend requests, or see their "Last Online" status.

Recording can also be done by pressing the Record Icon.png button, wherever this is available.

This option is not available on the Windows platform, as the Windows OS has its own software for recording game clips.

Downloadable Content

Downloadable Content – Checks for downloadable content. In some cases, due to faulty internet connection, caching problems, or an incomplete update, the game might be missing partial content. When missing content, Dragons and Buildings can appear as silhouettes with question marks on them (see below), instead of normal features. After pressing the Downloadable Content button, 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   Download All   button can be pressed to download the missing parts, after confirming by pressing the Yes button, or cancelling using the No button. Downloading content, when in progress, is cancelled by pressing the  Cancel  button. When the entire content is present in the game, the button appears grayed out. Below the button, all the update packs are displayed in the form of a list.
