Ruins-Pre 5.7 were completely reworked. This information is no longer valid, but is kept for historical purposes. See Ruins instead.
Chest Rewards.png

Across the various islands, there are six different ruins which can be explored by Dragons for various treasures. Each ruin has to be unlocked before the Trainer is allowed to explore it. Exploring ruins is the only way to obtain shards for Chronos.

Interface

Once unlocking the ruin is complete and after selecting it, the Explore Button.png option is made available and can be pressed to open the selection window where the Trainer can see the level requirement for Dragons, the recommended Dragons for exploration, the rewards that can be obtained from exploring the ruin, the time it takes to explore the ruin, and (unless already found) the seal that can be obtained from the ruin as well as the number of shards the Trainer has collected thus far. The recommended Dragons will always be shown at the top, sorted by their level. The Trainer can choose the Refresh option to refresh the list of recommended Dragons, the Feed option to level up any Dragon on the list that does not meet the required level, the Search Button.png button to filter Dragons by Element (the default view is All Icon.png), the Search Name Button.png button to find a Dragon by their name, or the Explore! option to start exploring the ruin, provided the requirements for exploring have been met. Once exploring has commenced, the time left until exploration is finished will be shown in a bar over the ruin. During exploration, when selecting the ruin again, the Trainer will have the same button for accessing the ruin and the button to skip Speed-Up Arrow Icon.png the exploration time in exchange for Gems. Pressing the former button will open up the ruin screen displaying the time left until the ruin is finished, the current Dragons exploring it, and the Skip Gems Icon.png option. Both this last option and the skip option outside the ruin will bring up a confirmation window Skip All Gems Icon.png button for the Trainer to confirm their choice.

Additionally, when a ruin is not undergoing exploration, if the Trainer has collected all the shards for the seal found within that ruin, the   Go Now!   button will be displayed which will take the Trainer to the closest ruin where there are still shards to be found. If any Dragon from the list is unavailable for exploring, the action that keeps them busy will usually be indicated on a button next to them. This button, when pressed, will take the Trainer to where the Dragon currently is. If a Dragon is exploring another ruin, the   Exploring   button will be shown and, when chosen, will take the Trainer to the ruin explored by that Dragon. If a Dragon is stored inside the Dragon Vault, the   In Vault   button will be shown and, when chosen, will take the Trainer to the Vault. Aside from all of these options, there is the i button that can be used to see the collection of seals.

Exploring

Before exploring a ruin can commence, it must be unlocked by selecting it and pressing the Unlock Button.png option, and then pay the necessary cost. Additionally, aside from needing to be unlocked in exchange for a certain cost, each ruin is also level-locked and the Trainer must reach certain levels before being able to unlock a particular ruin.

Each ruin takes a certain amount of time to explore, and the exploration time can be skipped using Gems. Each visit requires a different selection of any three Dragons to be used and there is a minimum level required for each visit which can gradually increase after each exploration. The maximum level requirement does not increase beyond 30 which is applicable to all ruins. When it reached 30 the dragons needed to explore the same ruins changes to a different set. If desired, the list of recommended Dragons can be refreshed using Gems. The selection of recommended Dragons is not based on the Dragons the Trainer has in possession, and changes after an exploration only if the exploration was successful. Otherwise, the selection stays the same until such condition is met. Whenever the current selection of recommended Dragons is refreshed, the same set of Dragons will not be shown again. For non-VIP Trainers and those with VIP Levels 1 or 2, this will always be the case. However, Trainers with higher VIP levels have the benefit of several free refreshes available for use each day; one/day for levels 3 and 4, two/day for levels 5 to 11, three/day for levels 12 and 13, four/day for levels 14 to 16, five/day for levels 17 and 18, and six/day for levels 19 and 20.

While the ruins do not require particular Dragons for them to be explored, using all three recommended Dragons will increase the success bar to 100%. The bar can only reach a maximum of 35% if no recommended Dragons are used, and it cannot go lower than 5%. The chance of success is affected by the Dragon's level and Enchantment Level. A recommended Dragon having the exact level required by the ruin will give a 20% chance, while two recommended Dragons meeting the aforementioned condition will give a 30% chance. Each level above the required one for recommended Dragons will increase the chance by 1% and an additional 2% is given for each Enchantment Level. The chance of success given by the bar can lead to a successful or unsuccessful exploration, which affects the outcome of the prizes. The chance of success does not increase the chance of getting a shard, but only the chance of getting a chest. The chance for receiving a shard is fixed and depends on the ruin and the shard itself, and it is calculated only upon obtaining any one chest.

Chance To Get Chest Bar.png

Rewards

After a ruin has been explored, the Yellow-Bordered Chest Icon.png icon will be shown atop it and pressing it will either give the Trainer a No Chest prize (in case of an unsuccessful exploration) or the chance to spin    spin!    for one of three chests (in case of a successful exploration). Each chest can contain Gold, Food, Gems and/or Scrolls. There is no way of knowing what will be obtained from each visit. Each ruin has three shards of a Chronosian Seal, which can be obtained in addition to normal rewards. These are used to unleash Chronos. Once Chronos is unleashed, the seals can be obtained again to level up Chronos and summon the Chronoids. Only a successful exploration can result in a chest containing a Chronosian Shard.

The chests have three different rarities, namely Common Ruins Reward Chest - Common.png, Rare Ruins Reward Chest - Rare.png and Epic Ruins Reward Chest - Epic.png, and the chance to get any of them depend on said rarity.

Each Ruin has eleven different chests, and each chest has a fixed reward. The No Chest prize for not getting a chest is also fixed, but the Trainer will either receive one of Food or Gold and not both at the same time. The chest that a Trainer will receive is pre-determined even before spinning for it, as the chest in the right of the pointer arrow will always be the one awarded to the Trainer.
