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).

    reccomendations feel free to post a reply.
    Thanks for helping me out! If I make a website on
    DragonVale I’ll be sure to post that you helped me make
    it to that stage!

    Thanks, Bob/Officer30002

    • RedLeader006 says:

      Hi Bob, good luck with your project. I’ve been trying to get at least 2 of every dragon and now at least 1 egg. Some dragons are pretty stubborn to get though. Lol if you do gem for gem I’m on DragonVale everyday. I need people that play and trade gem for gem everyday. People always say they’ll trade on here but it’s not regular. If you want a loyal gem trader add me and give me a gem and I’ll know your serious! Thx and Good Luck RedLeader006

    • Helloooooo000o says:

      I have every dragon! (Some are hibernating while I wait for more habitats. (Is it always one per level?). I got them all, thanks to Macenstein! My user name is Helloooooo00oo. That’s 6 letter o’s. 3 zeros and 1 letter o. I give gems back as best I can, since I can only do three a day I can’t always give it back ASAP. Like today I got at least five gems from friends- they rock! Do you all notice the friend list changes order?? Hard to keep track . I should start a written list. Also if I get more than three gifts at once, the notification only lists the first three. Don’t get me wrong, I always give gems back !

    NEW DRAGON QUESTS:

    There are 4 possible rewards that I’ve found so far:
    150,000 gold / 30,000 xp / 5,000 food / fragment

    If you receive a 2 hour timer you did NOT get a fragment.
    If you receive a +2 hour timer you do get a fragment. (Level 1 Kairos)
    6 Hour / 9 Hour / 18 hour timer – Fragment
    If you receive a fragment you already have – you can exchange it for one of the other items.
    (NOTE: Food is the worst option as 150k is the 7th (out of 10) worst price per treat.

    Quest Zones:
    Mount Dumme:
    Prismatic Rift:
    Mermaids Garden: Swamp Dragron got me a fragment
    Blitzenwood:
    Blizzards Breath: Iceberg Dragon got me a fragment
    Iron Crag: Copper Dragon got me a fragment
    Mount Spectre:
    The Dragonwallow:
    Greenwood Forest: Clover Dragon got me a fragment

    Add me – Sonicross – I will trade gems!

    • Sonicross says:

      Additional Note: Unlike the “Race for Fragment” where you can win using a certain dragon type – you do not get a fragment every time with a certain dragon type.

    • I updated the app but don’t see any quests. How do you initiate them?
      – The Doc

      • Dee says:

        If you already had/have Kairos, you don’t get the quests…. I had finished Kairos before this quest for fragments began and never got the links….a friend who recently started dragonvale does have the quests on his structure… He did say however that a dragon went on a quest and never came back, that was over three days…. I am not sure if that got corrected yet or not.

    • Sonicross says:

      On Level 2 Kairos –
      The Dragonwallow: Obsidian Dragon got me a fragment
      24 hour timer – the most expensive the fragment which costs 300 gems

      • Sonicross says:

        UPDATE!!!!!

        Check the icons on the left and right sides of the word “Quest” – they are VERY SMALL. They are the hint at which dragon you need to send.

        It is NOT a guarantee – but your dragon has a BETTER chance and getting a fragment for you!

        GOOD LUCK!!!

    • RedLeader006 says:

      What did you use for Berrywhite Mountains? I got 24 hrs when I used a lvl 15 Scortch dragon. Is it a fragment?

    • Helloooooo000o says:

      Hi! I have kiros. I’m bummed I can’t play the quests. Who should I reach out to on this? I also think other games within dragonvale should be added, beyond the race track. It makes it more fun, especially when it’s a lag time of breeding waiting and not having a new habitat. Anyone agree?

  12. Jason says:

    The quests can be started by clicking on the “Kairos statue”. Then choosing a “piece” that you are missing. You then have the option to Quest or Race.

    As I do not have Kairos yet, if you do have him I’m not sure the quest will be available.

    I have confirmed with a friend that it seems the higher the wait time for fragments 6, 9, 18 as mentioned earlier seems to be based on the “quality” of the fragment. My 18 hour quest was the most expensive piece.

  13. Terin_lu says:

    From what I understand, Mac, you can only ses the quests if you don’t have kairos yet. You know how you went into kairos’s perch and you had a option of buying or racing to get pieces? I guess there is a third option now. :( real bummer since i already have kairos but maybe it means they are about to release a new legendary dragon.

  14. Elizabeth says:

    What is the referance to “a fragment”?

  15. Ch3wy says:

    I’m wanting to trade gems, I’ve got a gem tree and I’m on a few times a day

  16. Ch3wy says:

    Im having problems seeing my friends to give them gems. They are still friends on my game center, but they arent showing up to give them gems

  17. Ana says:

    I dont know how to add people so if anyone can please help, my email is anaaliciathomas@hotmail.com . Thanks

  18. Dudleyhar says:

    Mac,

    What can you tell us about the Kairos quests?

    Thx

    Dudley

    • Sonicross says:

      Dudley,

      Check out my posts above. The Doc already has Kairos, the quests cannot be accessed for those who have him already. It’s meant as a additional way to get him for those who don’t.

  19. Lisa says:

    Has anyone had trouble since the update? I keep getting booted and can’t really play the game. Gather a few coins, reboot. Harvest, reboot. Etc. Forget breeding or trying out the new quests. Am I alone in this? I’m getting frustrated!

    Dragon Quests (Kairos fragments?)
    Does anyone know what dragons to use for the quests to get the fragments? I still need one more fragment to get to Kairos. For example, what’s the best dragons to use for Berrywhite Mountains? Plus all the other quests. Thx and I do gem for gem RedLeader006

    • RedLeader006 says:

      I checked other sites and got platinum with quicksilver and water with a 40 hour with upgraded breeding cave and I got glacier 3 times in a row using earth first and cold last, it did not work the other way around.
