Heart of the Dunes in Text mode

Heart of the Dunes in Text mode

Heart of the Dunes is unlocked when the player reaches level 7.

Heart of the Dunes was introduced during the Guardian of the Desert Update (July 2017). For the duration of the challenge, Desert Rose special items are needed in addition to energy points to play Heart of the Dunes. Desert Roses are given as rewards for every successful investigation for every picture, as well as for banishing anomalies, but not for playing puzzles.

From the Diary:

"Alfred found an old Arab coffee pot with a photo fragment inside. A wave of delight swept over us when we saw the magical "Heart of the Dunes" picture. On one of Richard's distant voyages, he came across an Arab tent, where he heard the beautiful legend of barchan sands from the sages. He captured the tent in the mesmerizing "Heart of the Dunes" photo to return there again and again."

Heart of the Dunes is one of the pictures in the game that does not reward any combining elements, but does reward collection items that require a large number of combining elements to combine.

Rewards for PlayingEdit

Heart of the Dunes is a Collection Item only Picture. This means its list of potential rewards for each play only contains regular Collection Items, mode dependent Collection Items (depending on what mode the Picture is currently in), and Quest Items (if a Quest is currently active for the Picture). The list of potential rewards for Heart of the Dunes is made up of 13 Collections added by the Guardian of the Desert Update, 5 of which will reward Desert Roses during the Guardian of the Desert timed event.

When Heart of the Dunes is first opened, it is at Novice level, and only the items from the Eastern motifs collection will be on the list of potential rewards. As the level of the Picture is increased, more and more items will be unlocked as potential rewards.

The amount of energy required to play Heart of the Dunes will increase as the level of the Picture is increased. The experience points and coins rewards for each win of the Picture will also increase to match the increase in resource demands.
