    I’ve been using magnetic and current. So far I’ve collected 3 Cyclops dragons and 1 Electrum. So if you want these, Magnetic and Current are the way to go.

  2. captain cooper 0139 says:

    still trying to get another one.. I got 1 with magnetic and swamp level 15 but no luck on getting the second yet.. I hope it doesn’t just go away quickly I need more time!!! lol anyone can add me, and I still have 4 gem spots to trade, just send to me and I hit reply, first 6 to send to me every day is the first 6 I send back to. that’s the fairest way to do it

  3. MJR says:

    What is an easy way to get current?

    • Matthew says:

      Current is pretty hard to get since it has opposite elements, lightning and water.You should try to get it using a water dragon and a lightning hybrid. Like magnetic and water or water and sonic. After a few tries you’re sure to get it. Just keep on trying!

  4. LC2113 says:

    I got one with Fog+ Magnetic.
    Just like that with fog first.
    Tried so many combos before finally getting it with the second or third try of this combo.

  5. Ityldya says:

    I’ve got Double Raibow with magnetic + swamp. Though, still trying for Ouroboros.

  6. F1neChina says:

    Gem 4 gem add me n send gem F1neChina

  7. Dani says:

    I just got a 27 hour breeding time with fog and magnetic. I think it might be this one.

  8. Floshbit says:

    I just bred a magnetic to swamp combo and got a platinum dragon first try. Wasn’t the dragon I wanted, or the dragon I thought I could get if my first choice failed, but hey. Not complaining. πŸ˜€

  9. PersonMcPersonMan says:

    Meh, this one’s getting annoying. I keep trying but so far out of it I’ve gotten two Quicksilvers, a Copper, and a Cyclops… But STILL NO OUROBOROS DRAGON! This is really getting annoying, so many long breeding times with Magnetic and Water. At least I only need 57 more gems for the Epic Breeding Island! Once I have that I will be breeding Magnetic and Water in the island, all the time.

    • Michelle says:

      Use the dragons Doc lists! Why are you using water in the first place? Keep trying magnetic and swampor another one of the combos listed until you get it. Yes, the EBI is great but I have gotten many, many great dragons from my breeding cave too. Don’t fret…you have Doc’s info to get all the dragons even in the breeding cave.

    This is for Lois. All u do is go to friends at the bottom if the screen then very close to the bottom it says add friends. Them type in a friend’s name. U can add me megrimlocknobozo

    • Waitokikid says:

      Hi, I have just got a gem tree also and just trying to figure out the gifting thing. At the bottom of the social area in the invite friends area it comes up with only 3 options (Facebook, SMS and email ) where would I type in your name so that you are added to friends – no ‘add friends’ bit is there where I can just directly type in a players name. Sorry to be a dumb about this, but just trying to figure it out. Thanks for any help here.

      • Elkshadow5 says:

        And u r now friends

        • Waitokikid says:

          Thanks so much for the help, however my game centre has no friends tab anywhere so seems like I just have a pretty tree with gems on and can’t use it, how frustrating. Thanks again for the clear instructions, I thought it might be something fairly easy, sadly not available to me :(

          • Waitokikid says:

            Just changed the settings on the iPad and adding friends now available, awesome!! Thanks for all your help:)

  18. Caren says:

  19. Kyrishi says:

  20. dragonerd says:

  21. reidzzz says:

    This combo really works. I just used Lvl 10 magnetic and Lvl 10 swamp, with normal breed. got it on second try.

  22. Rachelle says:

    Anyone experience frequent game crash during gem collection fr friends? Doc do you know any fix

    • anon says:

      I have the same problem. No it just crashes and you have to keep going back into it. I haven’t found a solution. But if you give the gems first sometimes it doesn’t crash.

    • milla says:

      That has been happening to me and I tryies the pause for few seconds things nothing works i frequently freeze up when collecting gems as well as giving so just to collect my 6 gems and send out 6 gift I crash 12 times after each, also when feeding my dragons and collecting money am so sick if it, I see their is an update so am gonna update and see if, oh yeah and I also deleted the app and reinstall it, I clear cashe and still having problems it’s to the point where I dnt even wonna play it anymore but am hanging in here waiting on a fix, have a gud day ppl :)

  23. annonymus says:

    I got 1 platinium, 1 cyclops, 1 summer and 1 double rainbow!!!
    With the same combo (magnetic and swamp lvl 15)
    For now, i try again for an ouroboros… -_-

  24. Roberto says:

    Been breeding magnetic and swamp, for days. Just now got 49 hrs.
    (2:00-59:00) Any idea what it could be?

    • Matthew says:

      Since your breeding cave is taking that amount of time,49 hours the only possibility is that you just bred a platinum dragon. Congrats!

  25. bustanut says:

    Finally got mine after a week of trying with lv10 Magnetic + lv10 Fog

  26. ivy says:

    hey, just switch devices to android from my Iphone, need three friends to start for now. If you want me to add you on Facebook please reply to this post. I play every day; my old account was at 42, this one’s already 26.

  27. *M*I*K*A* says:

    got one with Magnetic and Swamp, both level 13 :)

  28. Big Mick says:

    I’m trying to get this dragon but so far with the combination of magnetic and fog, I’ve gotten a Cyclopes and a platinum dragon. Not the dragons I want but hey they are just as rare and hard to get:) oh and ill do gem for gem trades. Add me M1844.

    • Matthew says:

      Congratulations on getting the cyclops and platinum dragon with that combo but if you’re aiming for an ouroboros dragon 2 of the best combinations I used were either magnetic and water or magnetic and swamp. Good luck breeding!

  29. PersonMcPersonMan says:

    I need gem trading partners, I have 107 gems at the moment of writing and I aim to get my hands on an Epic Breeding Island soon. Please help me reach my goal, as I have nobody currently trading gems with me and I plan to get a Gifting Tree after I have the EBI, and I play everyday, as well as I always gift to anyone who sends me gems.
    And on the subject of the Ouroboros dragon, I finally got it after getting a Copper dragon, a Cyclops dragon, a Platinum dragon, and many, MANY Quicksilvers… I only kept one though because I never actually had a Quicksilver dragon. Just one in the group that I had managed to procrastinate breeding up until even this very moment!
    Anyway, my Game Center name is Canham! That includes the capital C and the exclamation mark. Thanks, and I look forward to gem trading!
