Game Description
The midnight dragon has been observed to stay up all hours to practice breathing its magical fire; the first dragon on record to be shown actually attempting to get better at this natural phenomenon. The magical breath temporarily leaves behind a rare and potent oil secreted only by midnight dragons. The light this oil produces is soft and soothing - some have even claimed that the oil helps them to keep working effectively through the night


The Midnight Dragon can be bred by using a Moon Dragon and any dragon that contains the Dark element, in either order, at any Breeding Cave. Breeding must start during the night. Nighttime occurs between 7 pm and 7 am on the day sky, or at any time on any sky considered to be a night sky.


The Midnight Dragon is the fifth and sixth rewards collected by accumulating a total of Star dust template.png 2,250 and Star dust template.png 1,530, respectively, totaling to Star dust template.png 3,780, during the Star Fall Event.

When a certain amount of star dust was collected and turned in at the Astral Spire, a message card would pop up to inform players that the Midnight Dragon could be collected from the "Gifts" section in the Social Menu.
