Breeding Cave

Breeding

In order to breed dragons, players must have a Breeding Cave that will unlock at level seven. There are some factors that will possibly affect the results:

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.

Breeding Hints are available in the breeding toolbar to be viewed after tapping on the Breeding Cave/Enchanted Breeding Cave and the Epic Breeding Island/Epic Breeding Sanctuary.

  • A list of dragons and information about which dragons and/or elements are needed to breed appears, when this section is selected.
    • Unlocked breeding hints will appear in the form of an equation.
    • Some of the hints can be unlocked by using gems.
    • The breeding hints that are locked varies among players.


Opposite Dragons

Dragons with opposite elements that cannot be directly bred with each other:

Opposite Dragons include:

All Opposite Dragons must be bred with a primary element dragon and a secondary element hybrid dragon.

Note: Breeding an Opposite Dragon with a primary element dragon will only result in primary element dragons (e.g. Sandstorm + Air will result in Air and Earth dragons).

Breeding Results

This is a brief overview of the possible outcomes from breeding. For more detailed information about the dragons please visit the Eggs, Breeding Times and Dragon Reference Chart pages.

Notes

  • The Epic Breeding Island and Epic Breeding Sanctuary are not absolutely necessary to successfully breed any dragon. It only grants the player a slight increase to the probability of breeding Epic Dragons, Opposite Dragons, Limited Dragons and some other dragons. The greatest benefit is allowing the player to breed two sets of dragons at any given time.
  • Gemstone Dragons cannot breed with any other dragons, even another of the same type.
  • Kairos cannot be bred; it is obtained by completing the Perch of Kairos.
  • On June 27, 2013, filter buttons were added to the breeding menu to sort dragons by elements.
  • On June 27, 2013, the "Breed" icon received its own unique sound effect upon clicking it.
  • On June 27, 2013, 'Repeat Breed' button was added for players trying to get a specific dragon.
    • This option allows users to breed with the same two dragons used most recently. A confirmation message pops up on the screen for players to double check the two dragons that were bred.
  • On August 22, 2013, 'Breeding Hints' button was added for players to gain access to hints for breeding dragons.
  • On August 22, 2013, the 'Help' button that was added for players to look at helpful hints, included a couple of hints specifically regarding breeding.

    • To breed sun, you need cold and lightning elements. If you breed rainbow element dragons, any of the 10 hybrid elements can show up. Therefore...
    • @Sizzleslazzle, Yes any Cold+Lightning Dragon is possible but can take a very long time but can be more trustworthy using Lvl. 11+ Dragons.  ...
