Habitats icon

Once hatched, dragons must be placed either into a habitat or into the Hibernation Cave. Different types of habitats exist for each different element, and a dragon must be placed into a habitat that corresponds with its own element. Dragons with more than one element can be placed in any habitat that is for one of their elements.

Every habitat can hold a specific number of dragons, and can accumulate a certain quantity of dragoncash or gems. A habitat that has reached maximum capacity cannot accumulate any more dragoncash or gems until emptied by a player. Upgrades are available for basic habitats, as well as for the sun, moon, rainbow, olympus, seasonal, apocalypse, and the dream habitats, that allow them to hold more dragons and accumulate higher amounts of dragoncash.

Gemstone Island

Main article: Gemstone Island

The Gemstone Island is a habitat for all of the gemstone dragons, a special variety of dragon that produces gems instead of dragoncash. The Gemstone Island is made of four habitats that can hold three dragons in each. When all the habitats are fully upgraded, it can hold a total of 20 dragons. The maximum number of gems for each habitat is three. The Gemstone Island is able to be purchased for 400,000 dragoncash at level 11, and takes 24 hours to be summoned. The Gemstone Island can not be decorated.

Each gemstone habitat may be upgraded with gems. The first upgrade increases the capacity to four gemstone dragons, and the second upgrade increases the capacity to five gemstone dragons.

Galaxy Island

Main article: Galaxy Island

The Galaxy Island is a habitat for all of the galaxy dragons, a special variety of dragon that are bred through cooperative breeding at the Cooperative Breeding Cave.

The Galaxy Island is made to contain one dragon, but can upgraded up to four times to add a dragon capacity each upgrade totaling to five dragons.

Up to three Galaxy Islands can be purchased. The first one is given to the player at no cost, but the second and third can be purchased from the islands section of the market for Coin template 5,000,000 and Coin template 200,000,000 respectively.

Each Galaxy Island may be upgraded with dragoncash for the first three upgrades, and with gems for the last upgrade.

Perch of Kairos

Main article: Perch of Kairos

The Perch of Kairos is a habitat which requires a three-part assembly process involving time fragments in order to create the Chronolith, Time Claw, and the Statue of Kairos artifacts. The Perch of Kairos does not accumulate any type of in-game currency. The Perch of Kairos may be purchased for 750,000 dragoncash at level 16, and has an instantaneous build time.

Upgrading Habitats

For habitats that can be upgraded, it is also possible to buy a larger habitat, wait until it is finished being built and then sell the smaller habitat after moving any dragons. It costs the same to upgrade a habitat as it does to buy a larger habitat from the market. If the maximum number of habitats are in a park this is not an option. During an upgrade, the dragons in the habitat generate income, but in the Hibernation Cave they do not.
