    Ugh… I’ve tried the thing where you breed the new dragons twice now and it didn’t work. Thanks a lot for all the people who said it did and made me waste all of my food… WHY AM I NOT GETTING THIS DRAGON?!?!?!?!?!?!? >:[

    • Kait says:

      Dude… I’m sorry you’re not getting it, but chill out! I have NEVER gotten a special dragon I wanted on the first try. Try upgrading your breeding cave / island if you haven’t already if you want to have better odds. If not, just keep trying! With enough time, you can breed any dragon. (Kairos not included, of course. :P)
      Also, food isn’t that expensive, and it doesn’t take long at all to grow if you have the Huge Treat Farm. Don’t be childish and blame others because you’re just unlucky!

    • trish says:

      Relax ๐Ÿ™‚ sometimes it takes awhile, especially with gem dragons. I’ve tried an entire month before I have gotten some dragona and in fact I didn’t get the amber dragon last month and my dragon levels were 15/16 and I must have breeding the dragons like 50 times! So it can be luck of the draw. Just keep breeding! At least you can sell duplicate eggs for more money for food!

    • Bill says:

      I understand how you feel. I don’t seem to have very good luck with some dragons either. The thing with these gemstone dragons is that only one combination is going to work. It’s still the beginning of the month so I wouldn’t get to stressed out about it just yet. Just keep trying as often as you can. I actually got so mad that I quit this game about a year ago for not getting the silver dragon. But I decided to come back and haven’t really gotten too stressed this time around. Good luck tho I hope you get it soon.

  2. Rysherk says:

    I’m probably not gonna get one… I have the worst luck with these games… I never win! Maybe it’s my iPhone… Are some phones better than others for this stuff?

  3. 5moo5 says:

    This is getting ridiculous. All I keep getting with the combo is obsidian and bone or mud. I think I’ve tried about 70 times and not gotten anything but those three. This is really aggravating >:(

  4. JOROYJO says:

    Try mud lava

  5. DerickWJazz says:

    Finally! Last day of October and I finally got a 31 hour incubation time!

  6. Sam_explosion says:

    So i’ve been trying all month to get this guy, and i end up getting 2 in a row. Do these dragons become easier to get on their last day or am i just incredibly lucky?

    Add me sam_explosion gem4gem (its amazing how many gems you can get from having friends)

  7. Eric Loh says:

    I got loads of mud & lava…..

  8. Rysherk says:

    I’m sooooo sad! I put so much time and effort, but yet I have no opal. :_( maybe ill be able to get a topaz…

  9. James says:

    I just need 2 more gems to get the epic breeding island. I have yet to get an opal dragon I’m trying my hardest to get one in these last few hours. Please send me some gems I’ll repay them tomorrow. Gc Id:fano1693, thank you

  10. Vagelis says:

    This combo was so broken! Not Doc’s combo, Backflip’s combo! I did over a hundred breeds, used around 500 gems, and almost bred nothing else this entire ridiculous month, and no opal! Unfckingbelievable!

  11. Mumof3 says:

    Is it too late to try again, seeing that they havent brought out Novembers yet?

  12. K.D.A. says:

    Does it really matter which order you put them up to breed? Ive beed doing lava then mud for ages and got no where so far…

  14. wisdom says:

    to answer all of your questions and all of the frustration out there you have to up grade your breeding habitat before you can get any gem dragons.

  15. Superman says:

    Sereosly! What does the God dragon Want from us???

    maybe its cake…

    Or frustration…

  16. John5 says:

    Yahhhhhhh!!!!!!! Just got my topaz #5 I only used 2 gems. Cactus/firefly.

  17. Pink says:

    This is the only gem dragon that I don’t have!!!! It’s soooo hard to get!!!!!!!>_<

  18. Guest says:

  19. Stella Bower says:

  20. Jodi says:

    First try.

  21. Tre says:

    Wooing finally! Same, finally got opal and sapphire. Both were seemingly impossible and got one of each within a day of eachother. Then scored garnet right away! End of the month? Maybe there’s something in that. O_o

    Good luck and keep trying!

  22. Ayomide Lamuren says:

    I got one on my first try in EBI with level 11 lava on left and level 11 mud( fountain of youth). really happy! ๐Ÿ™‚

  23. Andrew says:

    Finally got one on the final weekend Enchanted BREEDING CAVE

  24. zoo says:

    Well todays the 31st of January which means that I have just spent a solid month breading smoke and obsidian in both caves non stop and never got a garnet dragon. A total of 96 fails in a row with nothing to show for it. Wish I could give you guys my gems because I’m done with this game.

  32. ham says:

    Would Obsidian and river work just as good as lava and mud, better, not quite as good, or not at all? Please respond soon before it goes away!

    Tried lava and mud and got a salamander dragon!

  43. I says:

    Do the lava and mud dragons need to be at a certain level to get a opal dragon?

  45. StarstoneFireyKestrel says:

    Believe me guys when I say this. USUALLY THESE COMBINATIONS DON’T WORK FOR GEMSTONE DRAGONS! Anyways keep on trying I haven’t got one yet. (To be honest I haven’t got a mud so-this is gonna be tricky but I have a month). If u find another easier way contact me on this website coz I usually come on here to look up breeding combinations. Thanks StarstoneFireyKestrel xxx

  46. Tskgirl says:

    First time I got a bone dragon

  47. Cephalotus says:

    Wow, pleasantly surprised by how quickly I got this one! Believe it was only my second try with lava and mud.

  48. Flo says:

    I think I’m screwed… I don’t have the EPI nor are my dragons level 15… They’re level 10 and maxed out ๐Ÿ™ sigh. Maybe I’ll get super lucky???
