  6. Nielerinlenhard says:

  10. Tazio Nuvolari says:

    I have tried to breed lava and mud aproximately one hundred times. Not one opal dragon. Then my son finds my iPad and spends my 500+ gems. Now i get opal on first try. Not the first time this happened, i could only get saphire last month when I had spent all my gems. This looks really suspisious in my mind. I bet the developers have made the program so that you have to spend what you bought before you can get the rare dragons.

  11. AllM1ghtyOne says:

    Finally got one. I too have been trying at least twice a day since the beginning of the month for the opal dragon. Just want to let you all know that it is possible, I was starting to lose hope.

    I would appreciate it if someone loyal add me as a friend, so far this gem for gem favour hasn’t been returned.

  15. HungarrToph24 says:

    My advice? Don’t change up the lava and mud combo just do lava and mud. The farther you get into the month the better chance you have at getting it! Good luck

  16. Peaches magee says:

    Has it ever happened that you simply CAN’T breed a certain dragon? I’ve been trying for opal since day one in both breeding habitats with various sets of lava and mud, but still no opal. So frustrated.

    • TJ says:

      nope, you can get them all as long as you’re on a high enough level. Just keep trying. I used Lava and Mud. Took me soooo many tries.

  17. TJ says:

    I FINALLY GOT AN OPAL DRAGON! TOOK FOREVER. I have been trying every single day of the month so far…now to see if I can get one more before the end of the month…

  18. Chris says:

    Add me please I have no friends and I bought the tree not realizing I needed friends to use it lol


  19. Carrie says:

    I’ve tried at least 40 times this month. Lava (left) and Mud (right) both level 10 and I’ve gotten Mud, bones and lava. Add me if you’d like carebear179. :)

    • Rysherk says:

      Only forty? I’ve tried about 80, and still no luck! If I don’t get this darn dragon I’m gonna put my head through the wall!!! I’m sooooooooooo tired of wasting time breeding these dragons when I’m getting nothing out of breeding but pain, misery, and about $5000. When will it ever end?!?!?!?

  20. Nickol* says:

    Omgosh I think I finally bred it. ; w ;

  29. JBund says:

    I tried for an Opal for the first time today and got it on the second attempt. Considering its October 28th I would assume that monthly dragons such as this become more available towards the end of the month. Makes sense as players will rush and even spend money on gems in order to acquire it as quickly as possible, giving the developers almost a month of solid income until they release it towards the end…

  30. Blazedragon says:

    I been trying since the first day it came out and still have not gotten it

  31. Peaches magee says:

    I had been trying since day one too, but I just got my first one last night when I used a new level 10 lava and new level 10 mud after midnight. Give that a try! Good luck!!

  32. Nickol says:
