Game Description
First discovered in several inlets of the Shimmering Isles, Garnet dragons were initially believed unsuitable for parks because of their abrasive attitudes. Fortunately, the witch Amalthea showed how to properly tame and care for these beautiful creatures. Ever since, wizards have found these dragons to be a blast! This dragon cannot breed at this time.


Breeding

The Garnet Dragon can be bred using a Smoke Dragon and an Obsidian Dragon, in either order, at any Breeding Cave.

Notes

  • Garnet is the birthstone for the month of January.
  • The Garnet Dragon is the first gemstone dragon to be released while the previous month's gemstone dragon was still in the market.
  • The in-game notification of the Garnet Dragon has the word "hatch" spelled "hatche".
  • The Garnet Dragon cannot breed with any other dragon, including breeding with another Garnet Dragon.
  • The Garnet Dragon can swim in the Gemstone Island, but it has to come up for air.
  • Initially, the Garnet Dragon was available at level 14, but the level availability was changed on October 9, 2013, to level 16.
  • On June 15, 2016, the Garnet Dragon's description was slightly changed. The last line of the previous description was: "Garnet dragons, like all gemstone dragons, cannot breed."
    • On June 22, 2016, an extra line was added to the end of the Garnet Dragon's description stating: "This dragon cannot breed at this time."


Possible References

  • The Garnet Dragon appears to be based on the half-goat half-fish design commonly associated with the astrological sign Capricorn. This makes sense as the duration of Capricorn covers most of the month of January.
  • The "witch Amalthea", mentioned in the description, is probably a reference to the goddess Amalthea of Greek mythology, who was a goat-tending nymph that raised Zeus.
  • The reference to Garnet Dragons being "a blast" may be a pun on the term porphyroblast, which is a large crystal in a finer-grained metamorphic rock. Garnet is one of the most common porphyroblasts.
  • The description mentions "abrasive attitudes". This is likely a reference to the fact that garnets have abrasive textures before being polished.
