It's always in a free space on your island. If ur islands are filled to overflowing with decorations, now might be the time to put a few in temp storage. And a little trick i've discovered that allowed me to collect more than the required number of ankhs for the first section is to keep refreshing the page every few minutes....usually 2 or 3 ankhs would show up every time i did it.
Why no one has more than five scarabs in The curse of Dramses? In my house live 8 people and all they play Dragon City. I saw my children and my brothers to accept my gifts in Dragon City. Why does everyone have only 5 scarabs?
