- For the place in Dawn of Fire where players can buy and sell products, see Market/DoF. For the place in Dawn of Fire where players can buy Monsters, Structures, and Decorations, see Shop/DoF.
The Market is the area in which most in-game purchases can be made. One can buy Monsters, their Eggs, Decorations, Structures, Islands, Costumes, In-game Currencies (using real money, or exchanging other game currencies), and Merchandise. It is in between the friends list and options, in the bottom right corner. The prices of things listed on the Market are not completely fixed; they are sometimes altered temporarily by Daily Deals.
Players can buy basic monsters here using coins, and hybrid monsters with diamonds. For the five Natural islands, buying the one-element monsters is the first step in populating each island.
As of game version 1.2.4, players can also use this section to buy back the last monster that they have sold while in the current Island, to recover from accidental sales of monsters. This is called "Buyback". Monsters bought back into the game have the same level as before they were sold, and are purchased for the same sum of money that was received from selling it.
Before 2.0.4., in this section of the market, the text: "All monsters can be bred for free" was shown at the bottom of the screen. It was removed, due to the Werdos only being obtainable through purchase with Relics.
Decorations can be bought in this section to help decorate the archipelago.
Decorating affects the income generation of some monsters depending on the "likes" of the monsters and which decorations are chosen.
Structures do more than just decorating, and explicitly help the development of the monster archipelago.
Important buildings may be bought in this section, including the Breeding Structure, Mini-Mine, and Unity Tree, which ease the task of adding new monsters to the islands and help raising current ones.
Also the Humble Hotel, the Recording Studio, and the Storage Shed are buildings. The Time Machine slows down and/or speeds up the tempo of your music. The Wishing Torches make your breeding chances better if they're lit.
New Islands can be bought here, starting at level 4. New islands can hold monsters unavailable on the previous ones. After purchasing the first available island, the Map can take the place of this section.
For app players only (PC players don't have this ability), the music of the completed islands can be bought with actual money here.
In-game currency such as coins or diamonds can be bought with real money here.
In-App Purchases (IAP)
|“||Thank you for making a purchase and supporting the Monster-Handlers!||”|
|— Thank you note from Furcorn|
In App Purchases, known sometimes as IAP, are what everybody knows as things you buy in apps using real life money. This game provides many of these purchases, with some seemingly unwise as there are better in-game methods of obtaining the resources.
Making your first IAP will provide the following benefits in addition to getting the resources for that purchase:
- A Bonus Breeding Structure and Bonus Nursery, allowing you to attempt Breeding twice as often.
- The Maximum Mine, allowing you to get 2 twice a day on Plant Island and Mirror Plant Island
- The removal of pop-up ads (Mobile version only; Steam version does not have ads).
- Unlimited use of the Collect All Button
These are the usual values that must be paid in real money for in-game currency to be bought via the marketplace, without allowing for Daily Deals. Daily Deals may sometimes increase the value of each package. They also may occasionally decrease the price of a package. Values may vary over time and will vary depending on your country / real world currency used due to a combination of local and international law.
Note that "keys" are only used for buying Dipsters, a special type of monster.
