Breeding a specific dragon can take several attempts.
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 Epic Breeding Sanctuary, which will glow. Then, tap on "Breed", 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.
