List of DragonVale dragon incubation and Breeding Times

NOTE: If you’d like to see our full DragonVale Breeding Guide, click here.
So, every once in awhile you’ll set up two dragons to start breeding and get hit with a lengthy 20 or 24 hour breeding time, and you’ll want to know just what IS that dragon going to be when they’re done doing the nasty? Is it worth rushing it with gems? Well, here’s a quick list of the various breeding/incubation times for the various DragonVale dragons to help you out. Please note, these are the times for the STANDARD breeding caves, so if you have upgraded your Epic Breeding Island or Breeding Cave to speed up the breed times, multiply these times by 1.2 as those caves speed the breeding time up by 80%. (Although once you have an egg, these times WILL sync up with the incubation times if you cannot identify the egg you get). Some dragons share the same breeding times, so you’ll have to use your brain a bit and think about the elements you blended to know whether your 8-hour breed time is going to be a Blazing or a Ice dragon.

  2. Zoe says:

    I have bread a dragon with an incubation of 56 hours, any ideas what it could be ?

  3. KazCup says:

    45hrs in cooperative, my lvl 11 Sorarian with a friend’s Snowy gold… Anyone have any idea what it might be?

    • Ben says:

      Probably a sun or moon dragon

    • Conner says:

      The only thing marked as 45h is a sorarian dragon. Plus, the max level for a Sorarian dragon is ten. You just lied.

      • Kristine says:

        Mine are all at level 15. Do some reseach…the highest level anyone can get their Epics, including the Sorariam, at this time is level 20. Look up Relic of the Epics and Monument of the Epics. It is harsh to call someone a liar…when you do not know what you are talking about…how would you feel if we say you are ignorant?

  36. Amanda says:

    I just bred a lvl 15 Blazing with a lvl 15 Crystal and got a double rainbow first try!! Highly recommend this combo!!

  43. Katato says:

    Just got a 60 hour in regular breeding cave using ambrosia and smoke, is the only dragon with this time the double rainbow, as I already have one of them? Was hoping for something different.

  44. Ronnie says:

    I breeded a Monolith Dragon and a Bronze dragon and got 40 hours, any ideas?!?

  45. Person says:

    Just got 60 hours in cooperative cave (tulip and anturian) I think that means double rainbow! And, at the same time, I got a 33.3 (thirty three hours and twenty minutes) in the Epic Breeding Island as well! Hopefully dusk wing… I just bred random epic dragons..
    . I’d got so bored of trying tricky combinations to try and get the gemstones and I just gave up and bred anything that sounded rare. And it worked! I’d say most of my best dragons come from random breeding instead of particularly trying for things, so if you are sick of getting fifty five hail dragons in a row like me, try this!!!!!

  46. Ladybug says:

    14 hours
    Level 15 Air
    Level 15 Forest
