In order to breed dragons, players must have the Breeding Cave that will unlock at level seven or the Epic Breeding Island that will unlock at level thirteen. There are some factors that will possibly affect the results:


Update Note: The order of the dragons being bred does NOT impact upon the result.

How to Breed

To breed, tap on the Breeding Cave, Enchanted Breeding Cave, Epic Breeding Island, or the Epic Breeding Sanctuary, which will glow. Then, tap on the "Breed" button, and a menu with two sides, "Dragon one", and "Dragon two", will open. Dragons will be available for breeding once they are at level four or higher, and incompatible or unbreedable dragons will be "greyed out". Players must select one dragon on either side. Once the dragons are selected, press the "Breed" button at the lower center of the menu. To use the same pair of dragons used in the most recent breeding attempt, press the "Retry" button and confirm the re-use of the dragons.

Breeding hints are available in the breeding toolbar to be viewed after tapping on the Breeding Cave/Enchanted Breeding Cave, and the Epic Breeding Island/Epic Breeding Sanctuary.


Opposite Dragons

Dragons with opposite elements that cannot be directly bred with each other:

Opposite dragons include:

All opposite dragons must be bred with a primary element dragon and a secondary element hybrid dragon.

Update Note: Breeding an opposite dragon with a primary element dragon will only result in primary element dragons (e.g. Sandstorm Dragon + Air Dragon will result in air and earth dragons).

Breeding Results

This is a brief overview of the possible outcomes from breeding.

Notes

  • The Epic Breeding Island, and the Epic Breeding Sanctuary are not absolutely necessary to successfully breed any dragon. It only grants the player a slight increase to the probability of breeding epic dragons, opposite dragons, limited dragons and some other dragons. The greatest benefit is allowing the player to breed two sets of dragons at any given time.
  • Gemstone dragons cannot breed with any other dragons, even another of the same type.
  • Kairos cannot be bred; it is obtained by completing the Perch of Kairos.
  • On June 27, 2013, filter buttons were added to the breeding menu to sort dragons by elements.
  • A message would pop up on the screen for players if they do not have enough room to place an egg after the dragons have finished breeding.
    • If a player speeds up breeding the two dragons and has a Nursery full of eggs, it would deduct gems from the total count to show that the dragons have finished breeding. The egg would not enter the Nursery if it has no empty nest.
      • This rule was changed on an unknown date. Now it is not possible to speed up breeding using gems if the Nursery is full of eggs.
    • The message card was updated on an unknown date to include the sentence "We're sorry!".
  • On June 27, 2013, the "Breed" button received its own unique sound effect upon clicking it.
  • On June 27, 2013, a "Retry" button was added for players trying to get a specific dragon.
    • This option allows users to breed with the same two dragons used most recently. A confirmation message pops up on the screen for players to double check the two dragons that were bred.
    • The option is not available if the dragons that were used previously are entered in a different breeding habitat, is competing in the Colosseum, is on a quest or is moved into the Hibernation Cave.
  • On August 22, 2013, the "Breeding Hints" button was added for players to gain access to hints for breeding dragons.
  • On August 22, 2013, the "Help" button that was added for players to look at helpful hints, included a couple of hints specifically regarding breeding.
  • As of Update 2.0, breeding two of the same dragon will NOT guarantee that dragon. For users who have suggestions on ways that Backflip Studios can enhance alternative breeding options, they have provided a special email address: DVBreeding@backflipstudios.com.
