Game Description
Some say Gaia existed before anything else existed. She is often called The First Dragon, Sibling to Kairos, Bringer of Beginnings, Mother of Magic. Whatever her true origins, Gaia possesses a unique nurturing magic that allows her to speed up the hatching process.

Update.png Note: Gaia does not have a Twin Dragon form due to the way it is acquired.

How to Acquire

Gaia can only be acquired by summoning or buying it. This can be accomplished by assembling three artifacts to upgrade the Nursery. The three artifacts are:

The artifacts are built by collecting ten fragments for each artifact, totalling 30 fragments. These fragments can be acquired through the Dragon Track, through sending dragons on quests, or purchased with gems. A complete set of 30 fragments would cost Gem template.png 3,450.


Activate: Gaia can be activated once every four days using the "Activate" button. Upon activation, an egg of your choice that is incubating will instantly finish incubating.

Gaia has a second power when powered up to reduce the incubation time of eggs at the Legendary Nursery. Collecting Vital Essence from hatching, selling, and turning eggs into egg pedestals contributes different amounts of Vital Essence depending on the incubation time of the egg.
