Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Sims 3 Dragon Valley [Online Game Code] (Software Download)
The premium content in this is the reason to get it.
The town is beautiful and has some great lots. But I don't play this town because the elves are racist. No joke. I don't really enjoy having racist elves snub me constantly.
The other MASSIVE drawback to this pack is the clothing. If you have The Sims 3, you know that townies will be dressed in whatever happens to be available. Since there are many suits of cloth and leather armor in the athletic section, and very few items in that second generally since it's just shorts and shirts in the base game, it is very common to have male sims dressed in shorts and an armored top. Or, worse is when it's a tank top and the kilt. I hate this.
What I love is the Red Dragon. You touch the thing and it fills your energy and hygene. While you're holding it, you don't get tired obviously, and you can talk to it about athletics and max that skill in about a day. Carry a red dragon and you'll never need to sleep. Handy. The mark of the red dragon, what gives the energy and hygene buff, sticks around for 6hrs. Only then will they start decaying.
The green dragon is perfect for a gardener. Once you've upgraded your sprinklers to automatic, all you need to do rather than "tend garden" is weed the place. When it's harvest time, tell the green dragon to harvest it. You'll immediately have all the harvestables in your inventory. But there's more! It bumps the plants up to the next stage when it harvests, so if you had some that were mature, they're harvestable. A massive, massive cheat. It has mark of the green dragon, but I forget what it does.
Purple dragons are for maxing your charisma. If you get a goal of meeting a new sim, always take it, walk over to the purple dragon, and summon a new sim. You can also summon friends. I think you can talk to it about charisma, but since charisma has requirements to be met to advance, it's not that useful. I purple fills social and adds the mark of the purple dragon so it doesn't decay for 6 hrs.
Of note is that you can have only one "Mark of the" at a time. So if you're due for a Red Dragon fix and also need to harvest your plants, harvest first, then red.
So, this is a big trade-off. Your townies will dress like morons, and you have a new racist town to live in, but you get the excellent dragons. In a way, it's similar to other packs that way. The entire reason I haven't bought Island Paradise is because it introduces mosquitoes to all your towns.

I have Island Paradise. I haven't seen any mosquitos. It is SO cool to be able to dive! It's like the travel but on site. I love the hidden islands, and making resorts. You should try it!
