    I thought i had this dragon so i tried sakura + air and got a 48hr breed.. all the dragons am trying to get are coming up to 48 hr breeds… lol this sucks.

  3. Milo says:

    Hey leeah have you seen The dragons That comeback from Them egg. It could ben a rainbow dragon.

  4. Brit says:

    What does the sandstorm egg look like??

    • Trisha says:

      Brit- The sandstorm egg is purple with silver diamonds. I.just got one today with level 10 air and level 11 lava*** Good luck!

  5. Ryan says:

    Does the lava have to be level 11

    • Inga says:

      No, any level that is capable of breeding can come up with that result. Which side they’re on doesn’t matter either.

      • Moby says:

        The in-game tips do say level 11 allows for better odds of getting a rare dragon, but beyond that level/order don’t make a difference. You also don’t NEED level 11s, it just helps. Like how using ebi helps but isn’t necessary to get rares.

    Hi. I tried for a sandstorm with air and tree but got a 24hour 36 min breeding time in the upgraded cave. Any thoughts on what dragon this could be? By math it should be a dragon that has a 30hour 45min breeding time in a regular cave but I can’t find one of those. Any ideas? Thanks.


  7. george says:

    What is the best combination of dragons for this one?? I’ve been trying for months now and just can’t seem to get it. Any idea’s??

  8. Shannon says:

    I just made my second attempt for this dragon in the standard breeding cave with Crystal{10} and Fog{10}, going so far as ensuring that each respectively came from an Air & Earth habitat should that increase my odds of hatching the hard to get Sandstorm Dragon.

    {think strategy is gettin’ the best of me:) ?}

    The resulting 9hr incubation has me puzzled .. I thought that time was exclusive to the Swamp Dragon but there’s no plant element in the combo I used.

    Has anyone else encountered this phenomena?
    Or have any insight on what I can expect to hatch?

    Thank you,

  20. Mp says:

    Very first try with air and moss!

  21. StarstoneFireyKestrel says:

    Not sure how this is possible. What is a salute dragon anyway?

  27. Cynthia says:

    I unintentionally got a sandstorm dragon while breeding my level thirteen air dragon and level ten ghost dragon.

  28. Tathome says:

    Tried multiple times with air (10) and lava (12) in the non-upgraded breeding cave and haven’t gotten it. I keep getting 10 hour lava and 14 hour smoke… SUCH A LONG WAIT

    • Margaret says:

      I tried to breed with air and tree & air and Forrest in my game no luck, so went with air lvl 14 and thunder lvl 16 and got it second try. There was a chance for olympus dragons but now can get olympus dragons breeding for the lapis.

  38. Zoodles says:

    I bred air and moss and got 14 hour breeding time what could it be?

  39. Veebeegee says:

    I am officially super choked. I just bred this dragon with a Earth and Willow dragon which should not be possible. I was aiming for a Dodo. How can this be? I am not impressed with Dragonvale right now.

    • Krishna says:

      Of course it’s possible. Willow contains the elements Air and Plant and Earth is obviously Earth. Sandstorm requires both Earth and Air to be present. The ones that Macenstein lists are meant to be the shortest possible breeding combinations in terms of dragons that we don’t want to make it faster to get the one we do want.

  40. Ziggi says:

    I got it by blazing and obsidian first try trying to get solar eclipse.

  41. MC Chen says:

    I got it first try using Earth and Chrome, the combination for dodo 🙂

  42. Ash says:

    I’m trying to get it by breeding dodo and air

  43. Ldaena says:

    Air and tree both level 13 third time

  44. Viola says:


  45. Emily says:

    OMG I GOT SANDSTORM…OMG I GOT SANDSTORM…BEEN PLAYIN FOR OVER A YEAR AND FINALLY GOT SANDSTORM! Tried the stupid combinations over and over, hundreds of times probably, and just now got it with AIR and FOREST. i tried them, because i got forest from air and tree and was like…oh, that’s right-i forgot about FOREST! I bet it will work! Worked the 2nd time! Lol YES! Now i can get LAPIS!

  46. bettina says:

    Tried all those combos and nothing finally used my brain and tried air and sand… Got it first try! Basic breeding cave too.
