The Docking bug has been fixed.
The Dungeon Habitat is a reward for completing Part II of The Dungeon quest event. Once you get the habitat, it can host the same dragons as a dark habitat but has the stats of a big sea habitat. It is located between the Lava island and Ivory island. You can dock it on an island, but it can not be returned to it's off-shore position.
I have deliberately docked the Dungeon Habitat. Here is a video demonstrating the bug.
At the Social point forums, I have found threads that contacting Social Point can correct this. I can't confirm this.
I have a pending support ticket. No response yet.
I have also created a thread of my own HERE. In classic Pete fashion, I yelled at them and then had to apologize.
Pending Bug Fix
As of June 14, 2013, an Admin at the Social Point forum assures me this bug is being addressed. Apparently, this bug fix will prevent this from happening to anyone else. Players who already have the bug will still need to file support tickets to have this corrected.
Later that night, another admin who I'd spoken with replied and added that it may take 10-14 days. He says that he's heard of similar bugs being corrected, but nothing I could confirm. It is likely that individual tickets are being ignored in the light that a blanket fix is impending.
My island has been manually put back by Social Point. They have asked me to let you all know that we can expect a full fix within the week.
Apparently, the game was designed so nothing can move off the islands. As a result, once it's on the island, it's stuck.
According to Jerry999, an Admin at the Social Point Forums, this may be caused a choice in the original game design. He suggests that objects such as habitats were never meant to be able to move off the islands, and by oversight, the Dungeon Habitat could be moved.
Docked Habitat AttributesIt is not known if this is a bug or deliberate, but crystals do not appear to affect dragons in the Dungeon Habitat when it is off shore.
A docked Dungeon Habitat can benifit from crystals, but has lower caps than a normal big dark habitat.
Besides possibly as decoration, there is no benifit to docking the Dungeon Habitat. It's only advantage in game mechanics is that it is off shore, and this is lost when docking.
While the Dungeon Habitat occupies the same space as a normal big habitat, it hovers above the ground and obstructs anything behind it from being clicked on. For this reason, it is advised it be as far back on the island as possible.
