Game Description
Twice each year, near the longest and shortest days of the year, the Solstice Dragons come out of hiding. Their arrival - along with lighting of the Sun Stones of Surya - signals the beginning of grand festivals throughout much of the land. Because it has two heads, one favoring summer, the other winter, the Solstice Dragon is nearly always of two minds on any issue. Despite this conflict, most dragon experts take solace in the idea that two heads are better than one..


Breeding

The Solstice Dragon can be bred using a Blazing Dragon and any dragon containing the Earth element, in either order, at any Breeding Cave.

Additional Release History Information
*When the Celestial Collection Comeback event started, the Solstice Dragon was already available with its affiliated decoration and continued to stay available during this offer.


Notes

  • The affiliated decoration, the Sun Stones, was released one day earlier than the Solstice Dragon.
  • Based on the description, the Solstice Dragon will last through the Northern (June) solstice and re-appear again for the Southern (December) solstice later in the year.
  • Backflip Studios hinted in a Facebook post that the odds of breeding the Solstice Dragon might be best on the day of the solstice.
  • The Solstice Dragon is the first limited epic dragon with the Sun element.
  • Initially, the Solstice Dragon was available at level 14, but the level availability was changed on October 9, 2013, to level 16.
  • When the Solstice Dragon returned on December 23, 2020, it returned before the reset of that day.


Possible References

  • As mentioned in a DragonVale Facebook post, the Solstice Dragon's name is the astronomical term "solstice", which was derived from the Latin words for "Sun" (sol) and "to stand still" (sistere).
  • The Solstice Dragon's description is likely a reference to the idiom "Two heads are better than one".
  • The Solstice Dragon's description mentions "the Sun Stones of Surya". This is likely a reference to Surya, the Hindu God of the Sun.
  • The Solstice Dragon's description states, "near the longest and shortest days of the year". This is likely a reference to the Summer Solstice and the Winter Solstice, respectively the days of the year with the most and least amounts of sunlight.
  • The Solstice Dragon's breeding and incubation times of 23 hours and 30 minutes, when written as 23.5, is likely a reference to the number of degrees the earth is tilted on its axis.
