Welcome to the iPadForums Dragonvale All-In-One Breeding Guide! This was originally started by f4780y, but due to his other commitments, he was not able to update this awesome thread regularly as he wants to, so from now on, I'm very honour to take over what he has started. Once you reach Level 7 in Dragonvale you unlock the ability to breed dragons to produce new types of hybrid. This is a much more cost effective way of getting the more advanced dragons than purchasing them with gold or gems! Many of our threads have this information scattered around them, but this is intended to be the "one stop shop" for new or experienced players needing a quick reference guide for breeding their dragons! TIP - When you are just starting out it can be useful to use the "Goals" screen to get suggestions for the type of dragon you may like to try breeding next! How to use this guide: Elements or dragons needed are shown in [blue], breeding time are shown in [green] and with the upgraded breeding cave/island you may shorten the standard breeding time by 20% are shown in [violet] with square brackets to help you identify whether your breeding combination has worked. e.g. Evergreen Dragon = [Plant + Cold] [10h][8h] Suggested combo are mark with *, this are given to reduce your time of waiting if you fail to get your target dragon. e.g. to bred an Evergreen Dragon, you only need dragon that have Plant and Cold elements, you can simply breed Plant Dragon with Cold Dragon, but the fail is always Lichen Dragon, which is 6hrs breeding, so if you don't want to always wait for 6hrs every time you fail, the suggested combo is Flower+Lichen, so that the fail can also be Poison or Flower which is only 30mins or 1hr breeding, so you can try for more. I'll only give a maximum of 2 combo on this 1st post to make this short and simple, I will post other combos from separate post from this thread when there is a new dragon release and update the first post with only two combo, so subscribe to this thread to get notified if there is a new update. Remember! Some dragons are really hard to bred, especially for Epic, Opposite and Gemstone dragons. The suggested combo is only given to eliminate the long fails. You can use your own combo as long as the required elements or dragon are there. What is best for others may not be best for you, likewise what is best for you may not be best for others. So it's really about minimizing your losses until you're lucky enough to succeed. As the Wizard says: "It is possible bred every dragon with the right combinations and enough patience" Dragons will be categorized in 8 categories... Basic Dragons, Common Hybrid Dragons, Uncommon Hybrid Dragons, Opposite Dragons, Limited-time Dragons, Epic Dragons, Gemstone Dragons and Legendary Dragon. Note: Order or position of the dragons has no effect on the result. Dragons at level 15 and higher give better odds in breeding rare, epic and gemstone dragons. As of Update 2.0, breeding two of the same dragon will NOT guarantee same dragon. Minimum level required for dragon to breed is level4. Basic Dragons: -These are the single element dragons, and need to obtained by purchasing it in the market with Dragon Cash (DC) before you can begin breeding its hybrid. (Except for Air Dragon) Air Dragon = Buy it for 750,000DC (may also bred with Fire+Water) [2h][1h36m] Cold Dragon = Buy it for 30,000DC [12h][9h36m] Dark Dragon= Buy it for 3,000,000DC (may also bred with Rift+Rift) [13h][10h24m] Earth Dragon = Buy it for 75DC [5mins][4mins] Fire Dragon = Buy it for 500DC [2h][1h36m] Light Dragon = Buy it for 2,000,000DC (may also bred with Rift+Rift) [10h][8h] Lightning Dragon = Buy it for 75,000DC [30mins][24mins] Metal Dragon = Buy it for 1,000,000DC [8h][6h24m] Plant Dragon = Buy it for100DC [15secs][12secs] Water Dragon = Buy it for 500,000DC [4h][3h12m] Rift Dragons = Can only obtained as a reward from casting Light or Dark Magic while the "Return of Light and Dark dragon" event is in progress. Common Hybrid Dragons: -These are dragons that have two elements, they are permanent dragon and are original part of the game or update when new element was introduced Blazing = [Air + Fire] (may also produce Smoke) [8h][6h24m] *Air + Fire *Fire + Smoke Brass = [Metal + Fire] (may also produce Forge or Gold) [5h][4h] *Metal + Fire *Fire + Forge Cactus = [Plant + Lightning] (may also produce Ash) [30mins][24mins] *Plant + Lightning *Lightning + Ash Cave= [Dark + Earth] (may also produce Root) [11h][8h48m] *Dark + Earth Chrome = [Metal + Air] (may also produce Meteor) [5h][4h] *Metal + Air Coral = [Water + Fire] (may also produce Air or Salamander) [11h30m][9h12m] *Water + Fire Crystal = Lightning + Earth] (may also produce Quake) [24h][19h12m] *Lightning + Earth Dark Rift = [Dark Rift + Dark Rift] (may also produce Dark) [48h][38h24m] *Dark Rift + Dark RiftDungeon = [Dark + Fire] (may also produce Watch) [15h][12h] *Dark + Fire Ember = [Fire + Light] (may also produce Heat) [8h][6h24m] *Fire + Light Firefly = [Lightning + Fire] (may also produce Scorch) [3h][2h24m] *Lightning + Fire Flower = [Fire + Plant] (may also produce Poison and Pepper) [1h][48mins] *Fire + Plant Fog = [Water + Air] (may also produce Rain) [8h][6h24m] *Air + Water *Water + Rain Forest = [Plant + Earth] (may also produce Tree and Moss) [4h][3h12m] *Earth + Flower *Fire + Tree Fungus= [Plant + Dark] (may also produce Nightshade) [13h][10h24m] *Plant + Dark Glass = [Light + Earth] (may also produce Sand) [12h30m][10h] *Light + Earth Heat = [Light + Fire] (may also produce Ember) [12h][9h36m] *Light + Fire Ice = [Cold + Water] (may also produce Iceberg) [8h][6h24m] *Cold + Water *Water + Iceberg Iron = [Metal + Earth] (may also produce Scoria) [4h][3h12m] *Metal + Earth *Earth + Scoria Lava = [Fire + Earth] (may also produce Obsidian) [10h][8h] *Fire + Earth *Earth + Obsidian Lichen = [Cold + Plant] (may also produce Evergreen) [6h][4h48m] *Cold + Plant *Plant + Evergreen Light Rift = [Light Rift + Light Rift] (may also produce Light) [48h][38h24m] *Light Rift + Light Rift Luminous = [Light + Plant] (may also produce Meadow) [13h][10h24m] *Light + Plant Magnetic = [Lightning + Metal] (may also produce Copper and Electrum) [4h][3h12m] *Lightning + Metal *Metal + Copper Meadow = [Plant + Light](may also produce Luminous)[9h][7h12m] *Plant + Light Mine = [Cold + Metal] (may also produce Steel and Silver) [10h][8h] *Cold + Metal *Metal + Steel Moss = [Earth + Plant] (may also produce Forest and Tree) [12h][9h36m] *Earth + Plant *Earth + Poison Mountain = [Cold + Earth] (may also produce Glacier) [14h][11h12m] *Cold + Earth *Glacier + Cold Mud = [Earth + Water] (may also produce River)[6h][4h48m] *Earth + Water *Earth + River Nightshade= [Dark + Plant] (may also produce Fungus) [13h30m][10h48m] *Dark + Plant Pepper = [Fire + Plant] (may also produce Flower and Poison) [6h][4h48m] *Fire + Plant Poison = [Plant + Fire] (may also produce Flower and Pepper) [30mins][24mins] *Plant + Fire Quake = [Earth + Lightning] (may also produce Crystal) [6h][4h48m] *Earth + Lightning *Lightning + Tree Root= [Earth + Dark] (may also produce Cave) [9h][7h12m] *Earth + Dark Rust = [Water + Metal] (may also produce QuickSilver and Platinum) [6h][4h48m] *Water + Metal *Metal + QuickSilver Salamander = [Fire + Water] (may also produce Air or Coral) [9h30m][7h36m] *Fire + Water Sand = [Earth + Light] (may also produce Glass) [6h30m][5h12m] *Earth + Light Scorch = [Fire + Lightning] (may also produce Firefly) [3h][2h24m] *Fire + Lightning Seaweed = [Water + Plant] (may also produce Swamp) [5h][4h] *Water + Plant *Water + Poison Snow = [Cold + Air] (may also produce Blizzard) [8h][6h24m] *Cold + Air Sonic = [Air + Lightning] (may also produce Thunder) [8h][6h24m] * Air + Lightning *Thunder + Lightning Storm = [Lightning + Cold] (may also produce Hail, Sun or Moon) [5h][4h] *Lightning + Cold *Hail + Lightning Swamp = [Plant + Water] (may also produce Seaweed) [9h][7h12m] *Plant + Water *Water + Poison Tree = [Plant + Earth] (may also produce Forest and Moss) [14h][11h12m] *Earth + Plant *Earth + Poison Watch = [Fire + Dark] (may also produce Dungeon) [7h48m][6h14m24s] *Fire + Dark Willow = [Air + Plant] (may also produce Pollen) [8h][6h24m] *Air + Plant *Plant + Pollen Uncommon Hybrid Dragons: -These dragons also have two elements and are permanent dragon but they are not originally part of the game or was not added the same time the new element was introduced, they are just added as part of a separate update. They have lower chance of being bred than their common hybrid counterpart when breeding with two basic dragons. There was a special breeding rule for Uncommon Dragon but was removed from the game since August 8, 2013 Ash = [Lightning + Plant] (may also produce Cactus) [6h][4h48m] *Lightning + Plant Blizzard Dragon = [Air + Cold] (may also produce Snow) [10h][8h] *Air + Cold Copper = [Metal + Lightning] (may also produce Magnetic and Electrum) [20h][16h] *Cactus + Magnetic *Ash + Magnetic Evergreen = [Plant + Cold] (may also produce Lichen) [10h][8h] *Flower + Lichen *Poison + Lichen Forge = [Fire + Metal] (may also produce Brass and Gold) [24h][19h12m] *Brass + Flower *Brass + Poison Glacier = [Earth + Cold] (may also produce Mountain) [10h][8h] *Air + Mountain *Air + Ghost Hail Dragon = [Cold + Lightning] [8h][6h24m] (may also produce Storm, Sun or Moon) *Firefly + Storm *Scorch + Storm Iceberg = [Water + Cold] (may also produce Ice) [8h][6h24m] *Water + Cold Meteor = [Air+Metal] (may also produce Chrome) [14h][11h12m] *Air + Metal Obsidian = [Earth + Fire] (may also produce Lava) [8h][6h24m] *Fire + Mud *Lava + Mud Pollen = [Plant + Air] (may also produce Willow) [7h][5h36m] *Air + Cactus *Plant + Sonic QuickSilver = [Metal + Water] (may also produce Rust and Platinum) [18h][14h24m] *Metal + Water Rain = [Air + Water] (may also produce Fog) [8h][6h24m] *Air + Mud River = [Water+Earth] (may also produce Mud) [13h][10h24m] *Water + Mud Scoria = [Earth + Metal] (may also produce Iron) [22h][17h36m] *Earth + Metal Smoke = [Fire + Air] (may also produce Blazing) [14h][11h12m] *Air + Firefly *Scorch + Sonic Steel = [Metal + Cold] (may also produce Mine and Silver) [14h][11h12m] *Air + Mine *Chrome + Cold Thunder = [Lightning+Air] (may also produce Sonic) [8h30m][6h48m] *Lightning + Air *Air + Cactus Opposite Dragons: -These are dragons that have opposite elements, such as fire/cold, water/lightning, air/earth, metal/plant. -These dragons cannot be breed directly with their 2 basic elements, it should be 1 basic dragon and 1 hybrid dragon. Note: Breeding Opposite Dragon with one of its basic element dragon will result to a basic dragon. e.g. Sandstorm + Air or Sandstorm + Earth will result to either Air or Earth dragon. Bluefire = [Fire + Cold Hybrid] [12h][9h36m] *Fire + Lichen *Fire + Evergreen Current = [Water + Lightning Hybrid] [16h][12h48m] *Water + Scorch *Water + Firefly Dodo = [Earth + Air Hybrid] [16h][12h48m] *Earth + Fog *Earth + Rain Frostfire = [Cold + Fire Hybrid] [12h][9h36m] *Cold + Poison *Cold + Flower Ironwood = [Plant + Metal Hybrid] [12h][9h36m] *Plant + Chrome Malachite = [Metal + Plant Hybrid] [12h][9h36m] *Metal + Pollen *Metal + Willow Plasma = [Lightning + Water Hybrid] [16h][12h48m] *Lightning + Seaweed *Lightning + Swamp Sandstorm = [Air + Earth Hybrid] [2h][1h36m] * Air + Mud Limited-time Dragons: -These dragons are like normal dragons but they are only available to be bred during a small window of days/weeks. Limited Dragons are often associated with holidays and special events. Note: Dragons that are greyed out means the dragon is already expired and can no longer be bred except if you breed two of the same dragon. Note: Equinox, Lunar Eclipse and Solar Eclipse when breed with each other or breed with Solstice or BlueMoon will result to either of the pair even if it is already expired. Apocalypse = [Cold + Plant + Lightning + Metal] [20h12m][16h10m](End of Mayan Calendar) *Lichen + Magnetic *Cactus + Mine Autumn = [Air + Cold + Fire] [24h][19h12m] (Autumn Season) *Blazing + Blizzard *Snow + Smoke Bloom = [Storm + Plant] [13h][10h24m] (Easter) *Ash + Storm *Cactus + Storm Blue Moon = [Cold + Lightning] [29h31m48s][23h37m26s] (once in a Blue Moon) *Firefly + Storm *Scorch + Storm Bone = [Fire + Earth] [10h][8h] (Halloween) *Fire + Mud *Lava + Water Bouquet = [Flower + Water] [9h][7h12m] (Mother's Day) *Flower + Water *Flower + Swamp Bearded = [Mountain + Metal] [15h][12h] (Father's Day) *Mountain + Metal *Mountain + Iron Butterfly = [Firefly + Air] [12h][9h36m] *Firefly + Air *Firefly + Sonic Celtic = [Storm + Plant] [17h][13h36m] (St. Patrick's Day) *Storm + Flower *Storm + Poison Century = [Earth + Cold + Water] [10h][8h] (100th Dragon) *Cold + Mud *Moutain + Water Clover = [Moss + Plant] [7h][5h36m] (St.Patrick's Day) *Moss + Flower *Moss + Poison Cotton = [Plant + Fire + Earth + Lightning] [24h][19h12m] (DV's 2nd Anniv.) *Crystal + Poison *Cactus + Lava Equinox = [Blazing + Water] [24h][19h12m] (Equinox-March/September) *Blazing + Fog *Blazing + Rain Firework = [Air + Fire] [6h][4h48m] (The 4th of July) *Blazing + Air *Smoke + Fire Ghost = [Cold + Earth] [15h30m][12h24m] (Halloween) *Cold + Mud *Mountain + Water Gift = [Plant + Fire + Cold] [12h25m][9h56m] (Christmas Season) *Flower + Lichen *Poison + Evergreen Leap Year = [any 4 different elements] [14h30m][11h36m] (Leap Year) Firefly + Seaweed Scorch + Swamp Liberty = [Copper + Air] [29h49m][23h51m12s] (4th of July) *Copper + Air *Copper + Sonic Love = [Flower + Lightning] [5h][4h] (Valentine's Day) *Flower + Cactus *Flower + Ash Lunar Eclipse = [Cold + Earth + Air] [48h][38h24m] (Lunar Eclipse) *Air + Mountain *Air + Ghost Motley = [Fire + Plant] [13h][10h24m] (April Fool's Day) *Fire + Plant *Flower + Poison Panlong = [Water + Earth + Fire + Air] [36h][28h48m] (Year of the Dragon) *Mud + Smoke *Fog + Lava Paper = [Fire + Plant + Earth + Cold] [12h][9h36m] (Dragonvale's Anniversary) *Flower + Mountain *Lava + Lichen Reindeer = [Cold + Plant] [5h][4h] (Christmas Season) *Flower + Lichen *Poison + Lichen Rose = [Flower + Air] [14h][11h12m] (Valentine's Day) *Flower + Air *Flower + Pollen Sakura = [Flower + Tree] [10h][8h] (Cherry Blossom Festival) *Flower + Tree Solar Eclipse = [Air + Fire + Earth] [48h][38h24m] (Solar Eclipse) *Air + Lava *Air + Obsidian Solstice = [Blazing + Earth] [23h30m][18h48m] (Summer and Winter Solstice) *Blazing + Lava *Blazing + Obsidian Spring = [Cold + Fire + Lightning] [24h][19h12m] (Spring Season) *Firefly + Storm *Scorch + Hail Summer = [Fire + Lightning + Water] [24h][19h12m] (Summer Season) *Firefly + Salamander *Scorch + Coral Terradiem = [Earth + Water + Air] [24h][19h12m] (Earth's Day) *Air + Mud *Air + River Zombie = [Meteor + Earth] [16h] (Halloween) *Meteor + Earth Epic Dragons: -these dragons has its own element and special habitat. They have low success rate, so you have to keep trying. Some of these dragons are limited such as Leap Year, BlueMoon, Equinox, Solar Eclipse, Lunar Eclipse and Solstice so I put them in Limited Dragons category. OLYMPUS: (Gold, Silver, and Bronze) = [Earth + Lightning + Air] [35h][28h] *Air + Quake *Air + Crystal Cyclops = [Lightning + Metal + Water] [33h][26h24m] *Cactus + Rust *Ash + Quicksilver Note: Breeding two different type of Olympus Dragon together will result to the more common of the pair. The order from rare to common (Gold, Cyclops, Silver, Bronze) e.g. Gold Olympus + Cyclops = Cyclops Cyclops + Silver Olympus = Silver Olympus TREASURE: Platinum = [Water + Metal] (may also produce Rust and Quicksilver) [49h][39h12m] *Rust + Water *Quicksilver + Metal Gold = [Fire + Metal] (may also produce Brass and Forge) [48h][38h24m] *Brass + Fire *Forge + Metal Electrum Dragon = [Lightning + Metal] (may also produce Copper and Magnetic) [47h30m][38h] *Magnetic + Lightning *Copper + Metal Silver = [Cold + Metal] (may also produce Mine and Steel) [47h][37h36m] *Cold + Mine *Metal + Steel Bronze = [Earth + Metal] (may also produce Iron and Scoria) [46h][36h48m] *Air + Iron *Air + Scoria Note: Breeding two different type of Treasure Dragon will result to either of the pair (50/50) Seasonal = [Air + Fire + Plant] [48h][38h24m] *Air + Flower *Fire + Willow Note: Seasonal Dragon will magically changes its appearance as seasons changes Moon = [Cold + Lightning][breed between 7pm-7am] (may also produce Storm) [48h][38h24m] *Firefly + Storm *Scorch + Storm Sun = [Cold + Lightning][breed between 7am-7pm] (may also produce Storm) [48h][38h24m] *Firefly + Storm *Scorch + Storm RAINBOW = [any 4 different elements] [48h][38h24m] *Seaweed + Firefly *Swamp + Scorch Double Rainbow = [any 4 different elements] [60h][48h] *Seaweed + Firefly *Swamp + Scorch Ouroboros Dragon = [Magnetic + Water] [26h24m][21h7m12s] *Magnetic + Rust *Magnetic + Quicksilver Gemstone Dragons: -These dragons are also considered Epic Dragon and Limited Dragon. It is named after the birthstone of the month and only available during their respective month. It is the only dragon that produce gems instead of DC. -these dragons have extremely low probability rate of success and have only 1 special combination for every gemstone dragon and cannot be breed with any dragon including another same gemstone dragon. January - Garnet = [Smoke + Obsidian] [31h][24h48m] February - Amethyst = [Hail + Sonic] [28h][22h24m] March - Aquamarine = [Iceberg + River] [31h][24h48m] April - Diamond = [Ice + Mine] [24h] May - Emerald = [Lichen + Crystal] [31h][24h48m] June - Pearl = [Seaweed + Snow] [30h][24h] July - Ruby = [Chrome + Scorch] [31h][24h48m] August - Peridot = [Crystal + Cactus] [31h][24h48m] September - Sapphire = [Rain + Mountain] [30h][24h] October - Opal = [Lava + Mud] [31h][24h48m] November - Topaz = [Cactus + Firefly] [30h][24h] ***it's back!*** December - Turquoise = [Poison + Swamp] [31h][24h48m] Quarterly Gemstone Dragon: May-July - Jade = [Plasma + Salamander] [30h26m][24h20m48s] Aug-Oct - Amber = [Evergreen + Quake] [30h26m15s][24h21m] Nov-Jan - Jet = [Ash + FrostFire] [30h][24h] *** NEW *** Legendary Dragon: -Currently there is only one Legendary Dragon; Kairos. this dragon possess a very special power, it can accelerate all the time-related activities in your island by 6hrs except the Colosseum event and gemstone island counter. -This is the only dragon that cannot be bred or purchase in the market, it can only acquired by summoning. How to Summon Kairos Dragon: You need to collect all the fragments to assemble the Artifacts. There are 3 Artifacts; 7 fragments from each stage; so you need a total of 21 fragments before you can summon Kairos. There are two ways to obtain the fragments, but you need to purchase first the Perch of Kairos from the Habitats section and Dragon Track from the Buildings section of the Market, this will only be available when you reach level 16. by Race- you can enter race from Perch of Kairos or Dragon Track, by winning the race you have a chance to win a piece of fragment from spinning wheel. by Quest- You can send your dragon on a quest from the Perch of Kairos to collect the fragments for you, it will take 2hrs-24hrs before your dragon return and see what they got for you, it can be DC, treats, XP or fragment. You can still enter a race while your dragon is on quest. Guide for choosing the best dragon for the tracks: Event = Recommended Dragon: Blast Furnace = Forge/ Brass Cherry Road = Sakura Dramoria = Steel/ Mine/ Scoria Electric Skies = Sonic/ Butterfly Marshlands = Swamp/ Seaweed Rime or Reason = Snow Shimmering Faultline = Quake/ Crystal Ulster Meadows = Tree/ Clover/ Moss Year of the Dragon = Panlong Note: using the recommended dragon will not guarantee you 1st place, it will only give you speed advantage but you still need the right timing and winning 1st place will not guarantee you gem or fragment, it is still random and luck, 1st place will only give you higher chance of getting fragment or gem. If you don't have the recommended dragon, using Epic or Gemstone dragon is a good alternative, it seems to run fast on all tracks. Guide for choosing the right dragon for the Quest: Quest = Recommended Dragon: Berrywhite Mountains = Scorch/ Firefly Blitzenwood = Cactus/ Ash Blizzard's Breath = Snow Boneyard Caldera = Lava/ Obsidian Burning Winds = Blazing/ Smoke Cadberry Fields = Sonic The Dragonwallow = Mud Drizzlemist Heights = Fog/ Rain Frozen Pond = Ice/ Iceberg Greenwood Forest = Moss/ Tree Hemlock Gardens = Poison/ Flower The Iron Crag = Iron/ Scoria Lodestone Peak = Magnetic/ Copper Mermaid's Garden = Seaweed/ Swamp Mount Dumme = Brass/ Forge Mount Spectre = Mountain Northern Exposure = Lichen/ Evergreen Prismatic Rift = Quake/ Crystal Ruins of Alsvitheim = Mine/ Steel Stormy Way = Storm The Weeping Wood = Pollen/ Willow Note: using the recommended dragon will not guarantee to get gem or fragment, it is random. How to Activate Kairos: Kairos can be activated once every four days using the "Activate" button. Upon activation, all activities in the park that require time (dragon earnings, breeding, incubating, harvesting) to complete will be accelerated by six hours. *Gifting Tree and Colosseum are not accelerated. The "SummonDragon" button will summon Kairos back to the perch. Happy Breeding Dragonvalers! Special thanks to r0b0-tr0n, the creator of Dragonvale Sandbox, without his Sandbox, it will be harder for me to find the right combo. If you spot any mistakes or omissions please feel free to post a reply and let me know! Also, feel free to post your winning combinations so that it may help others.
