Issues related to iOS
There seems to be an error with Apple’s systems. Please contact iTunes support for details on the status or your payment.
Please be aware the iOS “Family Sharing” feature is not supported by Puzzle & Dragons.
As a result, purchases attempted through “Ask to Buy” will not complete successfully. This includes purchases attempted not only on iOS, but anywhere “Ask to Buy” permissions are put in place by a Parent.
To avoid experiencing any purchase issues, please disable the “Ask to Buy” feature when making purchases.
Issues related to in-game Friends
Can you become in-game Friends with users who play on different OS’s and who have downloaded the game from different app stores?
[Ex: iOS (App Store) <-> Android (Google Play Store)]
Yes, provided you are within the same region, you can become in-game Friends with users who are playing the game on different operating systems, and you can also use the Friend Gift Exchange feature with them. The content of the game is the same across all platforms, although there may be slight differences in the movements and controls of the puzzle.
The user you are trying to add as your in-game Friend may not have any open slots on his/her Friend List. Also, there’s a chance that you are sending more Friend requests than the maximum number of Friends you are allowed to have at the time. In such case, you will not be able to add more Friends.
Yes, you can protect in-game messages by opening the message you wish to save and tapping on the “Protect” button. Once you save a message, you will not be able to select the “Delete” button, and it will not be deleted even when you select the “Delete All” option. Please “Protect” your important messages.
Yes, you can select the “Delete All” option to delete all in-game messages excluding your saved messages and unread messages.
Issues related to Dungeons
The Limited Time Dungeons appear at different times for different users. That said, all users get an equal amount of Limited Time Dungeons to keep the game fair for all users.
The Dungeons that are labeled ½ Stamina already display the halved amount of Stamina that they require. Please be advised that the Stamina will not be divided in half even further.
This may result from changing the time setting on your device. Please make sure your device is set to the correct time. Changing the time setting deliberately may cause issues with the game data. This may result in corrupted game data. Please refrain from manually changing the time setting on your device.
Special Dungeons and Event Dungeons are different from standard Dungeons in that they aren’t always available. Please check the official Facebook to find out the schedule for these special event Dungeons. Also, if the time setting of your device is incorrect, the Dungeons may not properly display.
Issues related to Monsters
The Monster that you defeated may have dropped an Egg that contained the pre-evolved version of the same Monster.
There may be a delay in the network connection. The obtained Monster may not appear immediately, but the Monster has added to your data. Please check the Monster Box after a few minutes and look for a Monster with the blinking “New” text.
Each Monster has a “cost.” If the total Team Cost exceeds the maximum cost your game data is allowed to accomodate at the time, then you will not be able to add them. You can check your current total cost by going to “Monster”⇒”Team Edit”⇒”Team Parameter,” so please compose your team of Monsters that are below your maximum cost.
Once a Monster is sold or fused, it cannot be reverted. If you do not want to sell or fuse important Monsters, please go to your Monster Box and register them as your “Favorite” to avoid mistakes.
There may be a delay in the network connection. Please restart the app in an area where you have a good network connection.
Issues related to Rank
There may be a delay in the network connection. Please restart the app where you have a good connection.
When you rank up, one of the following parameters may increase: Stamina, Cost, Friend slots. Please note that your Stamina doesn’t increase every time you rank up. Once your available Friend slots reach 50, they will no longer increase when you rank up. You may use Magic Stones to purchase additional slots.
Issues related to Friend Gift Exchange
When you reach Rank 20, you can send a one-time gift from the “Premium Egg Machine” to a Friend. This option will be displayed in the Friend section, but will not appear if you’ve already sent a gift or if the Friend you want to send it to hasn’t reached Rank 20. Please be aware, the Premium Egg Machine contains different Monsters than the Rare Egg Machine.
There may be a delay in the network connection. Please wait a while and restart the app where you have a good connection.
