    Is this a limited?

    • Veebeegee says:

      No, it is a new elemental dragon. Those are never limited, plus you can tell at a quick glance because there are no hourglasses on the border.

  2. Veebeegee says:

    Just bred one with Mine lvl 15 and Ember lvl 14 first try in EBC. I am still missing Glare and Sulfur so I figured this combo might do the trick for one of the three. So excited, never got a new dragon this quickly!

    • Veebeegee says:

      So sorry all. I jumped the gun. In fact this combo gave me 2 steel dragons instead. I guess I will try MacEnstein’s suggestions instead

  3. Kelly says:

    What? I would have thought glass and quicksilver – after all that’s how you really do it.

  4. anon says:

    Does it matter what your twilight tower is set on when breeding this?

  5. Karen says:

    I got it with Light & Metal (both level 16) on the second try.

    • Emily says:

      TRUST ME….Karen’s right. I tried everything else and got it in epic with METAL and LIGHT. The cave and levels don’t really matter, but mine were both level 14, if anyone’s wondering.

    Trying Macenstein breeding hints, I tried twice so far and both outcomes are radiant dragon…
    Hey I have a problem with giving away my gems, I can only give 1 gem away then it bocks my 5 other gem options, I can no longer press “sent gift”, this happens in the tab gifts.
    If I go to the tab friends, non of my current friends are in there, they used to though, now it says “invite your facebook friends and Game Center friends to play Dragonvale”
    But I just want to share my gems with the friends I have always had, they are able to send me gifts but I can’t return them the favor except for one gem Γ  says?!!

    Please can anybody help me??? Do I need to add new friends?L

    • Zippy says:

      Have you downloaded the update yet? If not, maybe your friends haven’t. You need to be on the same version to ‘see’ each other. Good luck, hope u find them!

    • Dragomulli says:

      I have the same problem. It is due to the update IOS8. Backflip Studio will fixe it.

    • Annie says:

      I have had that ‘problem’ too!

      Just restart your device and all your gem buddies will be back!!

      Anyone notice the Mirror dragon egg is same as Radiant??? Yea, I get the whole “mirror” thing.

      …and May the Odds be Ever in Your Favor!!!

      • kjwille says:

        Thank you so much Annie for your reply, it feels very comforting to know I’m not the only one facing this!
        Ok, I’ll definetely gonna give that a try! Will keep you posted…
        Omg I didn’t notice that, I thought I had radiant dragon every single time and just sold it right away, if that’s the case than I breeded like 6 mirror Dragons so far, lol!

        • kjwille says:

          Hmmm Annie I restarted my device (iPad), is that what you were referring to?
          Unfortunately my gem buddies aren’t back πŸ™

          • Annie says:

            Ok…that works on my android ones…I guess I should’ve asked…

            Apple…someone else suggested making sure you have the latest download on the app.
            If you are using GC to save ur progress, then I would suggest uninstalling the app and then restart and download the app again.

            Strange, my iPod park is the only one that gives me no trouble!

            Good Luck!!!

    • Emily says:

      I kept getting Radiant, as well. USE METAL/LIGHT GOODLUCK!!!

  7. Kee Oth says:

    Mac, I’ve sent you multiple friend requests, but have never heard back from you. πŸ™

    • kjwille says:

      Were you talking to me? If so, I’m sorry! I remember I had some friend requests in the past but wasn’t able to acceptfor some reason, now I can’t even find where the friend requests are… Every time you update, it kinda changes…

    • Dedawen says:

      I have sent Mac several requests & got no response either. I guess he’s popular.

  8. cajayboy says:

    Got it on my first try with the ΓΌber obvious combo of glass and quicksilver. Seems like Kelly and thousand of scientists, chemists and dragon conscious wizards knew the formula all along. And may I add on a personal note…? What a butt ugly rendering of a mirror dragon! Seriously, this thing is going to shatter itself with all the rocking back and forth to look up its own ass. It’s back end literally looks like it’s front end which must be the tongue in its own butt check of a joke!!! Haha. But perhaps I’m just projecting/reflecting?!!! Guess I was imagining a more majestic version of a silver…

  9. myrubberduck 39 says:

    kjwille, the problem u described about friends under social is a known problem by this game maker…i emailed them over a week ago They are incompetent……

    • kjwille says:

      Thank you so much it’s very comforting to know that I’m not the only one facing this problem! πŸ˜‰

  11. Lauren says:

    Need 6 new friends that are serious dragonvale players! Will send gems every day! GC ID- TheeLBC

    • meermoggy says:

      Lauren, I will try and add you, under normal circumstances I send gems out daily, but until Backflip fix the problem between Game Centre and Dragonvale I won’t be able to send any out. Hopefully won’t take too much longer!

  12. Annie says:

    Hello Everyone!

    BackFlip confirmed that the Radiant and Mirror dragon eggs look the same…they do but there is a slight difference if you see them side by side. The Mirror egg has a pale golden sheen over the entire surface making it just a little lighter.

    I have three parks breeding Mirror in everything. (LOTS of Radiant eggs)

    What worked: Radiant/Palladium (lvls 17/18) in the EBC….turn your twilight tower to DUSK!

    …and May the Odds be Ever in Your Favor!

  13. Erik says:

    Palladium and light level 11 and radiant and metal level 11

  14. jane says:

    Radiant and palladium. After many tries and many different combinations.
