Weather Generators add a 2% Boost to their Affiliated Element

Calculating Earnings Summary[]

The boosted earning rate can be calculated using the below equation:

Boosted Income = Base Income x (1 + (0.3 x number of boosts + 0.02 x number of affiliated Weather Generators))

If there is a decimal in your product, the boosted income is rounded up to the nearest whole number.

For Example: 202.27 would become 203

Calculating Earnings With Positive Element Boosts[]

Boosts each provide an increase of 30% to the earning rates of dragons of the same element that are housed on the island that the boost is placed on. Depending on the boost and dragon placement, a dragon's earnings rates can be affected in a positive way.

Please refer to the Boosts page, as well as each boost's individual page, for more details.

As of June 15, 2023, the newly-added Weather Generators also provide a 2% boost to its affiliated element:

Boosts do not affect epic dragons without primary elements (with the exception of Monolith Dragons).

To calculate the earning rate of a dragon, the player will need to determine how many boosts are affecting that dragon. Then, the player will need to add that amount from his/her dragons' earnings. The effects of one positive boost on a dragon with a base earning rate of 100 would be calculated as:

100 + (100*30%) = 130




If a dragon's base earning rate is 100, and was then affected by two positive boosts, the calculation would be:

100 + 2*(100*30%) = 160




If a dragon's base earning rate is 100, and was then affected by three positive boosts, the calculation would be:

100 + 3*(100*30%) = 190




If a dragon's base earning rate is 100, and was then affected by four positive boosts, the calculation would be:

100 + 4*(100*30%) = 220




The generic formula to follow is:

The player simply needs to place the appropriate number of positive boosts into the formula for their given situation.

Boosted Income = (Base Income x (1 + (0.3 * Number of boosts + 0.02 * Number of Weather Generators))

  • Note that multiplying a number by 1.3 is equivalent to adding 30%, and multiplying by 1.02 is equivalent to adding 2% to a dragon's income.

If there is a decimal in your final product, round it up the next whole number.

  • Example: 202.27 would become 203


Rounding Range[]

In June 2024, Drow and clsForCoding discovered how a dragon’s actual DragonCash earning rates are determined. The DragonCash rates are rounded before and after the boosts calculation, resulting in a more generous rate than previously assumed.

Use the following table to find a dragon’s actual DragonCash earning rate if no boosts are applied. Since the discrepancy between the in-game base rate and the actual rate isn’t significant until the base amount is ~462 DragonCash/minute, this is where the table starts.

(If boosts or generators are used, this table can be slightly off because boost percentages are added together, applied against the number of cycles per 1 DragonCash, and rounded down twice, resulting in a higher income threshold. Please use the DV Sandbox’s Income page to calculate the actual rate with boosts and generators.)

Range of Displayed Rates Rounded To
462-500 500
501-545 545
546-600 600
601-666 666
667-750 750
751-857 857
858-1000 1,000
1001-1,200 1,200
1,201-1,500 1,500
1,501-2,000 2,000
2,001-3,000 3,000
3,001-6,000* 6,000*
