    Now that DRAGONVALE was kind enough to bring back the rare dragons like Leap Year, I am proud to say I have all the dragons even though some are in hibernation and I’m about to hit level 40. I hope they up the levels again and add some more islands. I will give gem 4 gem to who ever gets to me first. I play several times each day so I’m able to keep up. I also keep a log on my breeding since in the beginning it cost me to lose rare dragons by repeating or not using correct elements. Happy New Year Everyone and let’s hope they add islands, another universe, or planet or something to keep our Dragon families going for another year so we don’t have to sell habitats or dragons to continue playing. May 2013 bring more AWESOME dragons our way!!

    I got platinum second attempt with Rust and Water, both level 15.

  3. Meeka says:

    I tried quicksilver and ash for quite a while and three rainbow dragons later I was frustrated and gave up. After about ten tries with quicksilver and metal I finally got it.

  4. Marie says:

    I also hope that they will level up the levels and add more islands. They also need to add new buildings to make it more fun to play. I’ve tried to get all the dragons but there are a few that I still need to breed. The platinum is hard for me to breed trying to get it since it was available to breed. Add me as your friend I am giving gems everyday to my friends. Good luck to everybody who is playing Dragonvale and may you all have a wonderful 2013!

  5. KESATS says:

  6. Kurlykath says:

  7. Don K. says:

    Been breeding Quicksilver Dragon and Rust Dragon for 2days — so far 11 Rust Dragons in the regular cave and 10 Rust Dragons in the Epic Breeding Island.

  8. Angeliquita says:

      Can’t add you? Username I guess is wrong or perhaps u could clarify. What is it again?? I play daily & trade gems as soon as I can when my gifting tree gives me more. LOVE THIS GAME!!

      P.S. Still can’t get Platinum??? If u got one, please share your Combo! Please!!! :)

  9. Cambreia says:

    Haha, I uh, got this just by breeding metal and water in an enchanted breeding cave. First shot. I don’t usually get this lucky!

  10. Don K. says:

    Since January 6th using combinations where the only 2 results are a Rust Dragon or a Platinum Dragon I have bred 58 consecutive Rust Dragons ( 31 on the Epic Breeding Island and 27 in the regular cave). SCREW the Platinum Dragon. I’m going for the Guiness World Record for the most consecutive Rust Dragons and the most Rust Dragons in a fixed period of time. Don’t know what those two records are, but at the rate I’m going the records will be mine in no time. Anybody wan’t to quess at what the records will be or how many more days/weeks/ or months the streak will continue can respond by replying to this post.

    • dak says:

      It will take you 13.5 more days and my streak is 100 rusts then I gave up

    • Don K. says:

      The streak ended on January 12th at 4:50am est. After breeding my 61st consecutive Rust Dragon ( the 29th consecutive Rust Dragon in the regular cave), I wanted to change something up for my next breeding on the Epic Breeding Island. So instead of continuing with the Quicksilver Dragon & the Rust Dragon, I decided to bred a Magnetic Dragon & a Plasma Dragon for a few times. First attempt was a Magnetic Dragon. Second attempt was a Magnetic Dragon. Third attempt was a Platinum Dragon. Used 8 gems to speed up the first two breedings.

  11. Chloe says:

    Got it with Chrome and Rain level 10 :))

    • rishona18 says:

      Depends if it’s an upgraded island or not… Upgraded it’s a copper dragon and not upgraded it’s either a plasma or current dragon…

  23. anon says:

    My question is if you have a dragon that’s higher than a level 10 and you breed it with a level 10 will it stop you from getting some of these dragons? I’ve noticed when I breed, say a lvl 12 ash with quicksilver all I get is another ash.

  24. Gabe says:

    I got the 49 hour timer with a Seaweed and Metal this morning.

  25. lol2 says:

    I got it with a flash and water dragon

  26. XJoWx says:

    Bred mine this morning with Quicksilver and Magnetic in the ebi. I feel that including lightning helps your chances. After thig random combos of metal water and lightning for 2 days and got it after a month of quicksilver/water or metal.

  27. Happy New York says:

    I have been trying since the 4th of January and still no luck

  28. Player says:

    This is a very tough dragon lol. How do you make the dragon names the type of dragon they are?

  29. Blah says:

    Hi I’m new and I’m willing to try the entire trade gem for gem thing. I have the dansai gifting tree!
    My game center name is cinderchace

  30. Papering Wizard says:

    I accidentally am getting one (I was trying to get a rainbow and nearly exploded when it said it would take about 49 hours because I thought I was getting a rainbow until I looked up the incubation time) and its my first try (for an attempt at rainbow) and in the breeding cave. So yea I’m accidentally getting a Platnum Dragon (ash +quicksilver. Someone on Instagram said he got rainbow with it)
    Add me on Game Center: Papering Wizard
    (I’ll try to send as many people gems as I can)

  31. FL318 says:

    Just dumped 3 deadbeats. Need 3 friends. Daily gem 4 gem only. I WILL boot deadbeats. Otherwise add me FL318. I’m lvl 40 daily player.

  32. jamie says:

    hey whats the green egg?

  33. Cass says:

    Just bred a platinum dragon using rain and chrome.

  34. framos93 says:

    I had been trying to breed this dragon for literally about a month with Rust and Water and got Rust every time. By chance, I tried Quicksilver and Rust, both level 15 on the EBI and got it on the first try finally! Hope this helps :)

  35. Shane says:

    So far no luck on the Platinum dragon, 0 out of 12 attempts.

    But will keep going, I will succeed

    Free free to add me, Gehennah I gift regularly

  36. jh says:

    got 1 using swamp and magnetic.

  37. Machal says:

    I got platinum on my first try in the cave with ash and quick

  38. Alice says:

    Got a Platinum Dragon accidently by breeding Swamp + Quicksilver!

  39. RandomRainbows says:

    Hey I was trying to get Cyclops and ended up with 49 hours left and the only dragon I can get with that amount of time is platinum… I got it by magnetic and swamp in that order I think both lvl 10 so maybe that works? Does anyone have an idea on another dragon this could be? I need gems on my gamecenter account I’m only lvl 9 on my iPod my name is RandomRainbows17 so please add me I’m hoping to get a higher lvl on my iPod soon I need gems for that though so I trade gems I send back as soon as possible so if I don’t send right back its probably because I sent gems earlier

  40. Rmazz55 says:

    Hey guys. Trying to get all epic dragons but is literally taking forever without gems. I’m up for that gem for gem thing and I go on everyday so I will defiantly send back if you send. I send you everyday if you do. Game Center is rmazz55.

  41. Pkmmasz says:

    I got this accidentally, I was trying to get a cyclops dragon in breeding cave, I checked the incubation time and it was 49 hours. I used swamp and magnetic. Got it on my first try breeding for a cyclops dragon. I got really lucky

  42. Hi says:

    I got one by accident while trying to breed a plasma dragon in a regular breeding cave… I used lightning and rust

  43. SnootyB says:

    I got mine by accident with Magnetic and Swamp.

  44. Rosey says:

    Can it work on your first try.

  45. tony says:

    I got it just now in the Breeding Cave with Quicksilver and Rust my 1st try lol

  46. Hippomon82 says:

    I was trying for the cyclops dragon with swamp and magnetic but I’m getting a platinum dragon.So,try swamp and magnetic.

  47. Lui says:

    I was trying to get the malachite dragon and the plasma dragon using a cactus dragon and a rust dragon, and suddenly I got a platinum dragon, maybe the ones that have not gotten one can try with this combination.
    Good luck

    • Sanne says:

      Lui, thank you for your tip! I have tried the other combinations endlessly with no result. I now have the platinum. In one try with your combo: cactus and rust. Thanks!

  48. Sui says:

    I have got a gem gift tree, need three friends to exchange gem regularly.
    add me if you want, user-id: swayersui

  49. Rathskeller says:

    I tried every combination I could find online for weeks with no success. So I decided to change it up and bred Magnetic and Plasma in the EBI. First try I got Platinum! Whew!

  50. Lauren says:

    You can breed the Platinum dragon with Swamp and Magnetic aswell.

    • Milo says:

      I got 49h first try with swamp and magnetic in regular breeding cave lol.
      Does it depend on whether you have rare dragons in th incubator? I just got a gold dragon egg.
      Now it’s plantium? I’m lucky. Got all three treasure dragons: silver, gold, and plantium after a few days from now lol.
      I wasn’t even going for plantium! But it’s the only dragon that has 49h. Lucky me!
      I should go for gemstone dragons now. I have none of those but a gemstone island sitting there lol.

    • JustynGarrett says:

      Second try with swamp and magnetic I got cyclops!!!
