    I was really lucky, I got it with lvl8 cactus and lil 8 crystal, in normal breeding cave.first try!

  2. Karwasche says:

    So I’ve tried 50 times… Literally and nothing… My theory is this is stupid… But I’m gonna try one more time and I’m leaving my dragons (cactus and crystal) in the breeding cave for 31 hours regardless of how long it really takes them to finish up. I’ll be back in 31hours

  3. Amalia says:

    What is the second egg?

    • bysshelley says:

      It’s a Quake dragon. You can get it by breeding Cactus & Crystal, same as the Peridot dragon.

    • Jaxpom says:

      The second egg is a Quake Dragon.

      And I’ve been trying all month for a Peridot (with level 15 dragons) and have had no luck yet! Getting seriously grumpy!

  4. Cinnamini says:

    I still haven’t gotten the Peridot dragon yet >_< and that's my birthstone dragon. I must get it

  5. Christopher says:

    I know this is irrelevant but I tried hail and storm dragon and I have gotten two sun dragon back to back one in te epic breeding Island one in the regular practically at the same time

  6. Murloc says:

    Been breeding level 15 cactus and level 15 crystal all month I upgraded EBI with no luck at all.

  7. Sarah says:

  8. Mr. Jeans says:

    Ohhh man haha I just got a 31 hour timer on the last day of august! doesnt get too much luckier than that, also being an hour-ish away from september… im happy :)

  9. Squirrelfinder says:

    What’s up?.. When I signed on this afternoon the message said “they’re back” and it was the Peridot dragon… Is this true? Or a glitch? I can’t find Pedidot in the market so I’m thinking its a glitch. If not please let me know… I tried all last month and didn’t get a Peridot

    I tried in August- just kept getting crystals, but now they r back I can try again. I have just got an epic breeding island so I can try them there. Good luck to everyone!

  12. aimee says:

    First try cactus and crystal 31 hours

  13. Margaret says:

    Very lucky breeding this dragon as I couldn’t get over Christmas or bring back weekend. My son got it first time in EBG with cauctas and crystal lvl 20, he fed them up over the last two months as it’s his birthstone. I on the other hand got two this morning EBG both lvl 18 and cave both lvl 15. Yeah!

  14. V Lo says:

    I just got this dragon too, Cactus and Crystal, took only 4-5 tries :)

  15. Kitty says:

    I got Peridot on my second try with Cactus and Crystal. Both dragons at level 11.

  16. Fluffy says:

    I got a forest dragon on my first try with level 7 cactus and crystal dragon and on my second try I got rainbow with a level 8 cactus and crystal and then I tried level 11 and I got it

  17. Annie says:

    Hats off to ‘dragon master’!!!
    Got a breeding time that matches Peridot econd try (EbI, lvl 11)

    Got sick of breeding cactus/crystal.
    Good luckl
    …and May the Odds be Ever in Your Favor!

  19. Florence says:

    This pairing never works for me. I keep getting Ash dragons no matter what.

    But someone, add me => Mme111


  20. Claire says:

    This game is bullshit! At least 50 goes with 2 lots of the combination on both breeding grounds at the same time( lvs 14 & 17) Normally I tend to get gem dragons on the last day no matter how much I try but I did not get this dragon, still trying for Dream, Shadow, Geode and Hydra also! I always buy gems when on offer but I have used 300 in 2 days trying to get this dragon so I will no more!!!!
    I fricking love thus game but it is turning to shit, what’s the point if ‘some people’ will never get certain dragons!
    Ok rant over….going to collect dragon cash…..

  21. Fred says:

    so… looking at the comments its hard to get, anyway, there is a blue moon, jasper and a peridot out at the mo, I’m not sure which two to go for, someone please tell me cuz i have be and cave, thanks

  22. Purle says:

    Woot ! First try!!! Epic breeding cave plus both level 16! Cactus and Crystal in that order if that maybe means anything ….

  23. captianguineapig says:

    I got my peridot dragon 8th try Crystal and cactus both level 16 on breeding island. That’s what I ‘recommend. Also just save up your gems for the breeding island, that’s what I did.

  24. Rainbow star says:

    Thank you!
    P.s thank you Zodge! ? EMOJI TIME!!!

  45. Mae says:

    I bred level 8 both and got 14 hour breeding time. What is it? I know its not the peridot dragon. Is there any other combos i can use?

  46. Yuriko Tsumi says:

    First thank you for the overwhelming response to my friends request for gem trading! Second, I’m aggravated with trying for gem dragons. With every opening I’ve tried breeding this one with no joy. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong. I’m using the breeding island with high level Cactus and Crystal Dragons but the breeding time is running from 30 minutes to 12 hours. Also the other gemstone dragons I do have were granted in the last days of the month. What is up with that?

    • Steven S says:

      Yuriko, there is nothing wrong with your breeding combination of Cactus with Crystal. Gemstone dragon are always hard to breed. Just keep trying, don’t give up & eventually you will get it.

  47. Rikakuma says:

    I’ve tried countless times with this combination, but so far have seen nothing. Any suggestions?

  48. Marieeve says:

    Ok: cactus on the right(lvl 12) crystal on the left (lvl 11)
    31h breeding time WOOT WOOT

  49. Marieeve says:

    1st try!

  50. Znp0306 says:

    Cactus and Crystal after about 15 tries
