Game Description
It is said that before the discovery of magic, humans relied on far more crude ways of meeting their needs. They burned a black stone called coal, named for the coal dragons whose skin it so resembles. This time of year, the wizards exchange coal dragon eggs with each other to remember hardships endured by those who lacked the companionship of dragons.


The Coal Dragon was initially obtained via gifts from friends from December 24, 2014 through December 26, 2014.

Once the Coal Dragon is received it can be collected from the gifts section of the Social Menu.

The most which can be received through this method is three Coal Dragons.


The Coal Dragon can be bred by using any two dragons, in either order, containing the Fire and Earth elements at the Breeding Cave/Epic Breeding Island.

  • The Coal Dragon's breeding and incubation times of 12 hours, may be a reference to December, the twelfth month of the year.
  • The Coal Dragon's description describes an example of coalescence or coming together to form one mass or whole. "This time of year the wizards exchange coal dragon eggs with each other to remember hardships endured by those who lacked the companionship of dragons."
  • The Coal Dragon's description mention that the wizards would exchange coal dragon eggs with each other to remember those who endured hardships. In the past people who had very little or experienced hardships would feel lucky to receive coal so that they could stay warm.
  • In history some regions of the world people who were poor considered getting coal as lucky.
  • The method of getting coal by exchanging or giving gifts to friends parallels how people used to give coal in the past and gifts now to each other during the holiday time of year.
