  7. appleman2137 says:

    It normally takes me most if the month to get these. But I got this one in the first week and now I have 3. Maybe it’s because I was born in may, I don’t know. But hey I’m happy.

      Rage and then some! Oooooh my gosh, I have trid every day two and three times a day for this insane dragon, can’ t get it either. On the other hand, I got a moon and two suns, I think two seasonal….so many dragons from the same combo. I plugged in crystal and lichen for my son a week ago to show him what to do and BAM! Sure enough, got him an emerald. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr I want one soooo badly. Help. Anyone? I have uebi and ubcave too. Now I know why people jailbreak!!!! (I am a good girl, but it IS tempting). Open to any suggestions. Have a terrific day!

  14. Bananagarr says:

    Anyone find the decorations are key to breeding gem dragons? it might be coincidence but i never get them before buying the relevent decoration. for emerald: Emerald Triquetra

    • Angie says:

      I read that just a few days after the emerald dragon became available, so I bought one right away. After that I bred crystal and lichen all day, every day and I didn’t get the emerald dragon until last night. To me it didn’t seem to increase my chances.

  15. Anna says:

      So that’s that the visitors are for. By the way, how much incubation time does it take for a emerald dragon?

  41. julian says:

    well I have been trying for this dragon since day one (2-5-13, coz I live in Australia I have to wait a day for America to start.) and right on this last night, I get a 48hr breeding time, i believe this to be the rainbow dragon. i cant believe i missed out on this dragon.
    maybe having my dragons named after what breed they are decreases the chance of rare dragons? (both are level 15)
    owell onto opel and jade dragons now.
    im on android so add me on fb? Julian Nicko Lally

  42. Lacey says:

    Yay I FINALLY got it on the final day !
    A month of trying finally pays off.
    In my opinion it’s the prettiest gemstone dragon.

    • ??? says:

      I bought the breeding hint and it said lichen and crystal instead of crystal and lichen so I don’t know if right or left matters or not, just trying to help 😉

  46. Curryz1027 says:

    Crystal and lichen level 14 each got it first try in regular

  47. Smokestar says:

    How do you trade gems? I’m so confused about everyone saying “add me” or “trade gems with me” or whatever

  48. ??? says:

    Tried this combo and was hoping for the emerald but I got a double rainbow dragon which is awesome! Either way I’m happy 🙂

  49. Margaret says:

    The odds are really low for this dragon. I looked on the dragoncalc and it’s only 13% change, so if you get it your lucky. Good luck with you breeding. (I have crystal lvl18 and lichen lvl 17, been breeding since start, no luck)

  50. Margaret says:

    My son just bred this dragon with crystal lvl 17 and lichen lvl 15.
