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).

  8. WhiskeyKid says:

    They should come out with a DoomsDay dragon for 12/21/12

  9. Katy says:

    Hey all, I was experiencing problem breeding special dragons like the panlong and rainbow. When I was looking online to help me breed them I came across something that said if you’ve moved to breeding cave off the first island then you couldn’t breed special dragons anymore. After trying to breed the panglong dragon 20+ times I thought there might actually be something in it. Not knowing how to rectify my error I tried selling the breeding cave and rebuying it on the first island, I did this and literaly the next dragons I put on my breeding island and in my cave I got panlong and rainbow! It may have just been a coincidence but seemed a little odd that I got them straight away.

    I thought I would post on here as I have noticed other people struggling to breed rare dragons, so if u have moved your breeding cave and have found the same problem it’s worth a try :) just thought I would let people know x

  10. Claudette Miskell says:

    I meant to breed crystal and blue fire in my never ending quest for a rainbow, but accidentally hit sonic instead of crystal and got a time of 48 hours, any idea what I’m getting?

  11. Carl David says:

    Hi i would like to check now that solar eclips dragon cannot be breed cause its for limited time. but if i have 2 of them can i still breed them?

    • b2curious says:

      Yes, if you have 2 limited time dragons, you can still breed them. I breed my reindeer dragons together back in October to get a display egg. When I first got them, displaying eggs was not an option.

  12. winter solstice says:

    add the winter solstice dragon to the breeding guide!!!!!!!!

    • Thomin8r says:

      I think that the Winter Solstice Dragon is the same as the Summer one, wasn’t that the Two Headed Dragon, just called Solstice.

      • Teresa patterson says:

        Yes I think they are one and the same but the solstice dragon comes around twice a year spring or summer can’t remember and winter so for those that don’t already have it this is their chance to try again. As for me still busy trying to get that darn platinum lol

  13. Julian says:

    I can’t breed a panlong dragon sum1 help me

  14. kobster_14 says:

    I don’t know what i am getting for Blazing Dragon + Lava Dragon? The time is 14 hours, anyone know what it is?

  15. Fudge says:

    Hey Doc I have a problem I was trying to breed
    a platinum dragon with quicksilver and ash and
    I got 48 hours please tell mew what u think I got

    Thanks
    -Fudge

  16. coop284 says:

    -Thanks

  17. Maria says:

    I don’t know if it’s just me, but I see the Apocalypse dragon in my Dragonvale store as well as the Apocalypse habitat. Any ideas on how to breed it?

  18. Rain On Fire says:

    Hey, Doc. Any word on the Apocalypse Dragon?

  19. Rsin1818 says:

    Hi everyone,

    Just in the market and they have an
    Apocalyspse Dragon. Anyone have any
    ideas how to breed? From the habitat,
    it looks like Lava is involved but not sure
    what to pick for the second choice.

  20. Patrizia says:

    The dragons I have yet to breed are stacking up – now there’s the Apocalypse! Any ideas on how to breed it yet?

  21. Frenzyfire50 says:

  22. mejo2000 says:

    What does it mean when my Piller of Prophecy has grey smokey circles around it .

  23. SpookNuts says:

  24. Nancie says:

  26. K says:

    Apocalypse dragon.

  27. Matt says:

    Just got apocalypse dragon with magnetic & lichen both level 13

  28. AgentOrange917 says:

    Add me! Need more gem friends. Doc, I tried to add you. Did you reach your limit? Does Magnetic and Lichen both have to be lvl13? I only have lvl 10 dragons…

  29. wicked28i says:

    Thanks for your feedback, will try to get Apocalypse Dragon..
    Good luck to all…

  30. Mr fix says:

    Tha apocalypse dragon looks crazy n since its habitat has space for 2 anyone else think there might be another dragon like it cause that would be great!:)

    • Controlaltdefeat1 says:

      maybe next year. or after Christmas.. k? but if the apocalypse dragon is a limited dragon. yes. it could be after this dragon.

  31. Firestriker29 says:

    So I just bred an iron with electric for magnectic so I could get the apocalypse . When I looked at the time it said 22 hours what is this??? Btw its in the regular breeding cave.

  32. laggernation says:

    hey theres a new dragon , the apocalyptic dragon

  33. Heads up says:

    There’s a new dragon.

    Apocalypse.

  34. G ripp says:

    New dragon apocalypse , any idea of the combos?

  35. Perplexa says:

    I’ve tried for solstice twice (blazing+mud) – got panlong; tried for apocalypse (magnetic+lichen) – got silver. GRrR!

  36. butterflyyy23 says:

    Hey hey apocalypse dragon ….I’m so eager to hatch one

  37. Controlaltdefeat1 says:

    Tip: breed platinum dragons and sell em! easy way for coin brought dragons..

  38. Frenzyfire50 says:

    If you want to hatch apocalypse dragon do magnetic+Lichen that’s the combo you could also get silver dragon from it

  39. Stephanie says:

    Hey doc there is a new dragon. The apocalypse dragon. Maybe figure it out soon :)

  40. Lady says:

    Lichen+magnetic… I allready wrote that under platinum one cause there was no thread for an Apocalypse dragon… Been trying since yesterday with this combo. Got now 16:09 hours in upgraded cave. Could be it…

  41. Carolyn says:

    Have you hatched one? Copper is a possible from mag and lichen and it takes 20 hours- apocalypse is 20 hours 12 minutes…

  42. Dudleyhar says:

    New dragon! Apocalypse!!! How do I breed it?

  43. Lyk12 says:

    Lichen + magnetic… Got it on the third try.

    1st try got magnetic, 2nd try got ash.. 3rd try apoc

    Doc can you try ironwood + storm? This might also work. The elements must be plant / cold/ lightening/ metal

  44. Saphira1195 says:

    I have tried like 40 times to breed the turquoise dragon with no luck!

  45. Gottapkrfc says:

    Hey Doc..I love your site, but the banner ads are driving me crazy…on my iPad every time I go to any page I have to dismiss them over and over…I don’t mind once or twice but if I go back to a page, that I’ve already swatted down, there they are again…don’t know if this can be adjusted or if its the prie to pay for your awesome site…thought I’d share my .02
    :)

  46. Brian says:
