Macenstein’s Ultimate DragonVale Breeding Guide

DragonVale BREEDING Guide

*** NOTE: IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR DRAGONVALE FRIENDS TO SWAP GEMS WITH, PLEASE POST YOUR INFO ON OUR DRAGONVALE FRIEND REQUESTS POST, NOT ON THE INDIVIDUAL BREEDING POSTS. THANKS!!***

So it appears more than a few of you are looking for tips on breeding various Dragons in DragonValeicon (Free/Universal). If you’re not familiar with the game, you can read our review here, but suffice it to say it’s one of those “time burglars” where you raise and cross-breed various dragon-types to create the ultimate Magical Dragon zoo. Ultimately pointless, yet addicting. Unfortunately, some dragons can be hard to get, and though you may TRY to breed a combinations that looks like they should get you a hard-to-get Rainbow or Moon Dragon or such, sometimes it just doesn’t happen. So we decided to put out a list of what we have found to work for each Dragon Type. I currently have a couple of every dragon (my Game Center ID is “Dr Macenstein” if you’d like to check out my dragons) and while many of them can be gotten with different combos, I will tell you only what breeding combinations actually DID work for me. I will warn you that occasionally even the right combination may take up 20 times or even more, but I promise you, these combinations WILL work. Eventually. Also note a couple of these dragons are “seasonal”, and may not be available at the moment no matter what dragons you breed. Finally, I suggest for most hybrids you purchase the Breeding Island (located under “ISLANDS” in the market) as it can increase your odds when attempting to breed a particularly hard to get hybrid. That being said I think I have also bred most of these with the regular breeding cave as well. ALSO, please note: For pretty much every dragon I have found that the order does NOT matter, despite what people say. For instance I got a Plasma with Lightning and Seaweed, and my wife got it with Seaweed and Lightning. So feel free to mix up the order of my suggestions if you’d like. Again, I’m just telling you what worked for me. Also, if you breed two dragons and want to know what the result will be before they hatch, check out this handy “List of DragonVale dragon incubation and Breeding Times” I threw together. And if you’re looking for “Suggestions for winning DragonVale Races”, click here.

First up we have the “Elemental Dragons”. These cannot be bred – you have to shell out coins for these – so start saving. On the plus side, these dragons make up the building blocks for all other dragons, so once you have them, you can get the rest (well, ALMOST all the rest).

    I have tried breeding the loot and double rainbow dragons together and it’s giving me all sorts of dragons from the Ice to the nectar dragon so I really recommend those two dragons if you want to get any dragons you missed or don’t have

  2. brey says:

    has anyone figured out how to get the omen dragon?

    • Endermandjg says:

      You breed moon and apocalypse to get the omen dragon

    • juictifer says:

      I’m pretty sure that it is apocalypse and moon

      • Nightingale says:

        Seriously, breeding two epic dragons together? Come on isn’t there a breed with two hybrids? Plus usually two epics get a hybrid. Well I guess not always I just bred MarbleTail and Daydream and I have Ragnorok now ? But still it’s kinda annoying because you have to get the apocalypse and the moon first. Are there any other ways to get it?

  3. Farmeran says:

    Does anyone know if I can breed multiple different monolith dragons, starting with just a single monolith dragon…? I am considering using my “gift” to get my first monolith dragon, but don’t want to waste it if I can’t use the first one to get a second one, then all five types… Any ideas?!!

  4. Twoheadedtroll says:

    hello, I see there is apparently a new Omen dragon. I am VERY new at this game. I do not see it on your list. Have you successfully bred it yet? If so, can you please add it to your list? I am interested in getting it. Thank you so much. I would not have 3/4 of my dragons without your help. :)

  5. Twoheadedtroll says:

    Also, can anyone please tell me how to add people as friends? When it says add friends, I only see a choice for Facebook, phone maybe and like sms…. But none of my friends play. Can anyone tell me how to add the people I see on your website that are always saying to add them? I could sure use some friends…I have none on here. :(

    • Vicki word says:

      You add friends on Facebook and link your dragonvale to Facebook and you see people listed in your social group

    • Caroline says:

      Go into game center under setting on your ipad, or phone then click on the + sign, then type in name of person. HTH’s!

    • Jan says:

      You go to the Game Center and go to friends. Once there, you should notice a plus sign in the top right hand corner of your screen. Click it and a box should appear. When the box appears, insert the nickname or email of the person you are trying to add in the first blank. If you want, you can write a message in the second box.

    • Nightingale says:

      Me too i dont have any people that are my friends on DragonVale. One of my real life friends does play but she says she hasn’t gotten my friend request. Then I realized I got the wrong e-mail and now I cant send other ones because the option doesn’t show up anymore ? I don’t have Facebook either ???? Please can anyone help????

  6. DOGZRULE743 says:

    Doc has helped me a lot with breeding dragons so thank you doc and I have also figured out how to get a Garland Dragon from cooperative breeding. It may not work but it will probably work: LvL 4 Antarian and LvL 8 Andromedan. Good luck to all!

  7. Anonymous says:

    I cant figure out how to add friends via friend code. Please help.

  8. Allen says:

    Omen dragon update? Also could the status of “new” be removed from the dragons over a year old?

  9. Sam says:

    Just got a 25.5 hr breeding time with procyon and sorarian dragons in co op. Any ideas what it may be? I can’t find 25.5 hours in the incubation list.

  10. Ed says:

    I got rainbow dragon 3/7 galaxy dragons

  11. brey says:

    how long does it usually take to find out the breeding combo for a dragon? I ask cuz I wanna know how to get the sanguineite (probably spelled that wrong) dragon

  12. SyrMouse says:

    What is considered the most rare or generates the most income as a dragon? I’m trying to figure out what to get with my wish.

    Thank you!

  13. lyra says:

  15. =) MBM (= says:

    Dear Macenstein,
    I bred a sun dragon with a lodestone dragon in the co-op breeding island. It took about two days – I’m thinking it was a sun dragon, but I bred it around 6:30 AM so I’m not quite sure. Any idea what it might be?

  16. Joan says:

    How do you get the Comet dragon?

  17. Finery says:

    Got a question? Has anyone ever tried breeding a elemental dragon with a galaxy dragon?
    I’m new to the game so I wonder if it’s possible. Reply if you’ve tried this please I’m curious about it.
    Thanks

  18. Melody says:

    hello, I’ve noticed the two new galaxy dragons aren’t listed. Is it bc they can only be bred basically by using other galaxy dragons? I was just wondering if the site is being updated still?

  19. Anonymous says:

    Does anybody know how I can breed a Mesolite Dragon?

    Thanks!

  20. William says:

    How do I breed a Mesolite?
    Thanks.

  21. Deanna says:

    Ok, I am wanting to get the new comet dragon, but am in a quandry…I apparently cannot breed a comet dragon without first HAVING a comet dragon (dragonvale breeding sandbox). So how does one get a comet dragon when one doesn’t have it to breed with? Any ideas? If you have a comet dragon, please let me know how you got it.

  22. Francisco says:

    Does anyone know the combo for the mesolite dragon?

  23. Regan says:

    Any ideas on how to get the Harvest or Feast dragons?

  24. Vanessa Derreberry says:

    What about the Feast or Harvest dragons?

  25. [annmart87] says:

    Breeding combos for Feast and Harvest plz

  26. *M*I*K*A* says:

    To get Harvest dragon:

    Earth (mine was level 20) and seaweed (mine was level 18) – you get a golden egg, similar to gold dragon, just lighter colour. Good luck!

  27. Dave says:

  50. DNKtrade says:

    sorry to everyone, Doc’s is best. It’s organized by incubation time rather than combos so it only takes one step to get your answer. Doc’s info on combinations is much more reliable too!!!! He only posts what he knows works.

  51. So tell me how to get friends

  52. Tina says:

    If you friend me on Facebook, I can add you, but I don’t have gems to give. Sorry. Good luck. Tina
