    Hydra!!! FINALLY!!!!
    I suggested a group of dragons based on Greek Mythology to Backflip when the Cyclops Dragon was released!!!

    (This was because I don’t like them being in Olympus habitat….give ’em their own! THAT would be a great ‘Odessey’!!!)

    Backflip answered me that “they couldn’t take suggestions from the public.”

    Well, HA-HA…..I’m STILL HERE!!!! And I have THREE parks now!!

    …and May the Odds be Ever in Your Favour!

    I suggested a group of dragons based on Greek Mythology to Backflip when the “Cyclops” dragon first came out.

    Backflip answered me saying how they weren’t allowed to accept suggestions from the public.
    I told them I wasn’t looking for anything…just loved the app.

    I guess they figured id be done playing the app by now. Nope. I have THREE parks now!!!

        Why don’t you research the definition of “noob” so you can realize how childish and IGNORANT you are!

        • daan says:

            Hopefully, the silly stone throwers are tucked in bed….where yhey belong!!

            For all the REAL DV players, the quake/current combo is good!!! My dragons were both lvl 11 in the EBI.
            Just for a hoot, I hit “breed again”….SHAZAAM!!! I got TWINS!!!

            OI….has anyone else noticed the startup screen ALWAYS says about how getti.ng every dragon ie possible?…..it used to scroll randomly over a bunch of cute sayings. WHY FREEZE IT NOW?????

            BUT, Im just a noob…..I’ll bet the $#=รท$-22 brain trust knows!……probably not!

    got it first try with current lv 5 and quake lv 12….good luck

    • shawn says:

      i have tried it like 10 times and both are level 11 dragons still nothing keep getting crystal

      • anon says:

        I’ve been trying non-stop too and only getting crystal – my quake dragon is 15 and my current dragon is 16. I only have two dragons left, this one and the victory one, which isn’t even available and I think that they set this game where when you get too close to the goal of getting all your dragons they stop you from getting the ones you’re missing. I had to save up gems and buy the current one. And I’m breeding in my cave for a second one and still having no luck.

        • Justin says:

          I would now set it so that your dragons are level 17-18. This will give you a better chance in getting this Hydra Dragon

        • LadyGu3 says:


          I don’t think the game is rigged to keep you from getting all the dragons. Before the Hydra was released,(and right before the Firefly Event started) I did have every dragon. My dragonarium was reacting and it showed that I had all of the dragons.
          It’s still just as difficult for me to breed new dragons as it always has been. The Hydra has been a tough one for me. Good luck!


        • Patrick says:

          I need to get a current dragon. Once I get it I can get this dragon and I’ll have all the dragons but every time I try to breed a current dragon I get an ash or cactus dragon

  4. IsabelleErixon says:

    Hi, add me, name IsabelleErixon, i have a gemtree so I’m able to give you gems if you give me ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Elijah says:

    I got 24 hour inc tinme with quake and current both lv 12 in the breeding island, what is it?

    • Cathy says:

      I think it might be a chrystal dragon. I dont know.

    • shawn says:

      its a good chance its a crystal dragon

      • Angie says:

        It might be a forge dragon

        • Nicole says:

          If it’s not the upgraded, the two people above me are correct.

          Since they introduced the “re breed” option, I don’t use it as a rule if im not getting what I want…its never worked. Thats why I said “just for a hoot” up above. Its never worked before.

          And I concur, I think the gamemakers are tweaking with the odds.

          Also, try different lvls of dragons…ex. if ur getting a lightning hybrid as a result, up the other to a higher level.
          Been playing this coming up on 3 years..? It used to be ‘easier’.

          …and May the Odds be Ever in Your Favour!

          • Snowyleopard218 says:

            I don’t think that’s correct. I’ve tried the re breed option and have gotten different dragons.

    • The tomboy says:

      Summer dragon? :/ but still cool

  6. Elyse says:

    Would it work with plasma insted of current? Thanks!

  7. Elyse says:

    Would it work with plasma insted of current? Thanks! I have plasma, but not current.

  8. Angie says:

  9. :3 says:

    OMG I love this dragon, I want it so bad, the only thing baring my way of getting this dragon is I don’t have a current dragon. ๐Ÿ™ but I wish good luck to those of you trying to get this AWSOME dragon!

  10. Rachellosaurus says:

    Yea finally got it! Add me Rachellosaurus I play everyday and gem everyday too. Need 4 new friends who do the same. Thanks!

  11. Rachellosaurus says:

    Whoops my bad just read that we shouldn’t post friend requests here! I’ll know for next time sorry Mac!

  12. cindy says:

    I just love the Dragonvale app but I wonder if there ever going to make a robot dragon

  13. Mermaid Jewels says:

    Got the hydra using Quake and Current both level 10 on EBI. I need RELIABLE daily gem traders for my 4 parks. If you want FOUR GEMS PER DAY, add these four Game Center names:

    Mermaid Jewels, MinecraftJaden, skylanderjonas, teamj49

    If you do not consistently trade, I will have to remove you from my lists. I have had enough of flaky gem traders. I have a lot to give so expect consistency in return. Thanks so much and I hope you get the Hydra if you haven’t already! ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Margaret says:

  19. darlene says:

    Yea I just got both a Leaf, and Hydra!

  20. Liz says:

    Got it on the second try with Quake and Current both lvl 15 in the breeding cave. Finally!

  21. V Lo says:

    Quake and current finally worked for me too!

  22. Dedawen says:

    Doing this for MONTHS!! Level 20 Quake + level 17 Current. This shows that Backflip is lying about higher-level dragons giving better chance and breeding epic dragons.

    • Emily says:

      Well, you’re at least lucky enough to have Current. You would’nt BELIEVE the kind of bad luck MY park is! Can someone please tell us the most likely way to get Current? I tried the tips on the Current page and NOTHING! Been trying since August!

    • Emily says:

      That is SO true! I’ve had WORSE luck with the *better breeding chance dragons(16+), along with the epic breeding island!

  23. airplane1231 says:

  24. Tayla says:

  26. Christina says:

  27. Glaedr17 says:

    I got it with my lv 10 leap year and lv 11 trinket while hoping for a totally different dragon.

  28. YeBoi says:

    What happens when you breed a galaxy dragon with a ornamental dragon

  29. FerrariF340 says:

    If anyone is wondering about any alternative combos, I bred my LVL 10 Stygian dragon with Nogard’s LVL 5 comet dragon…. I have got a 1 day 10 hours breeding time so it isa hydra because the Stygian is an Olympus dragon. STYGIAN+COMET/GALAXY DRAGON!
