    Please don’t forget about the players that are not so lucky to say “first time”.

    I have three parks going around the clock….not one of these upgraded breeding grounds has gotten a Zombie OR a Nightmare.yet.

    Thank you

      You’re totally right: the unfortunate, like myself, maybe??? I am about to be level 30, and STILL don’t have ABYSS! Can someone PLEASE tell me the secret to getting it?! I’m being serious, please help. I can’t even get shadow, wisp, ironwood, malachite, and dodo! Are these the hardest, or something?

      • Emily says:

        Wow. That was fast. I got wisp and abyss(finally), and nightmare on my first try! Maybe cuz i’ve tried a million times to get abyss and wisp, with no luck, i was finally able to get lucky. Don’t know if it’s certain days or times, but it seems like its always around 3-4pm when i get something.

  9. shawn says:

    I can’t seem to get it no matter where I am. This really sucks I want this dragon and both dragons are at level 16

  10. Fletchermusty says:

  11. Mr. Halil says:

  16. Bad dream says:

    Must have taken me about 90 tries but around midnight on jan 18
    (When the dragons went) I managed to get this dragon.
    For those who are frustrated keep going u will get this dragon with this combo
    ( when it’s available)
    I used level 14 and this combo and although I have ebi I got this on breeding cave

  17. I cheated. I couldn’t get the “Nightmare Dragon” on my own, so right before they were done with having them, I bought two of them. Since then I’ve have continued to breed them and have gotten 14 in all. Yesterday I got my 14th one. I still need one more to fill the habitats that they are in. I’m in no suggesting that anyone should do it my way, I’m just saying that this is how I got them. I love them. Should ever I need extra coins, they are worth 13,000,000 a piece. No other dragon is worth that much. At least for now. I wish someone could gift me the 21st two Snowflake Dragons. I lost my game for over a month and missed ALL of the Xmas stuff. The four Snowflake, coal dragons plus the one and only one I needed to have 100% of all the dragons. Now I’m shy 6 of them. Now I need to hope and pray that at next year’s BeB will give me the chance to get all of those six.

    • Emily says:

      Well, you must have been playing this since the beginning then, cause none of us new players have it that good!

    • Emily says:

      Oh, that must be so hard! I missed everything and don’t have any of those dragons! And had to pay REAL money for the ones I have! Now I’m broke and can’t get ANY new Halloween ones, because they don’t offer enough candy in a day! I get the limit pretty much within the first 15 minutes I’m on here. And the daily limit doesn’t pay for a quarter of the amount of some of these dragons! So I’m frustrated as all h*ll!. Maybe if they could give us an extra month, people might have half a chance! Yeah, I think it’s time to complain to them again! 🙂

  18. David says:

    Do you have to breed this dragon at a certain time of day?

  19. Mathew says:

    Add me on Game Center I have a nightmare dragon and are trying to find someone who also does so we can team breed them

  20. Deja says:

    Is there no way to chat or pass info to other players in this game? I would like a Procyon Dragon and cannot for the life of me get one thru the twin breeding cave… I have tried galaxy and epic drgons with another’s level 10 Procyon.

  21. Emma says:

    Got it on my 16th try (both lvl 15), so just keep on trying!

  22. Angel says:

    I tried it like a million times and I can’t get it… I WANT IT SO BAD

  23. Fruityloopy says:

    I’ve wasted so many gems with trying to breed this dragon and it’s killing me!!! All month I’ve been trying to breed this damn dragon and it hasn’t worked!! Is this seriously the only combo???? 🙁

  24. Emily says:

    Finally got Abyss with LOTUS and OOZE. For some reason, Lotus keeps coming through on all the combos used for breeding, more than any other dragon. So whatever has lotus in the possible combinations, I’m going to keep picking that one.

  25. Emily says:

    Omg, please be real, cuz this never happens to me. I just got 29 hours in the ebc, or on the ebi, or whatever, I think I actually got the dragon on the first try with Abyss. Took me 4-ever to get Abyss, but the first time I got to use it, it might have actually worked! It IS about 20% off of the time for Nightmare. I don’t know what else it could be, but don’t wanna know. Sorry for the ridiculous post, but I’m shocked! You gotta understand, I wasted so much money on this game(never spending a dime, again!) just to get nothing, and I finally got some luck! Good luck everyone! 🙂

  26. Sunshine says:

    Just got nightmare with lvl 17 abyss & howl dragons on the EBS.
