  6. Emtsurfgirl says:

  8. JayKay says:

    • Shelly says:

      This is a game….GROW UP. That kind of language show nothing but immaturity.
      The combinations are only suggestions based on what has worked for others. They are NOT guarantees. You have to try multiple times on most dragons, rarely do you you get it on the first try. So…..if you can’t handle the randomness of this game and you get so upset that you have to degrade yourself by using that kind of language, I suggest you DELETE the game now because you will most certainly be in a consistent state of frustration.

      • Caleb says:

        I agree with you about the nasty comment.

      • Annie says:

        oh my GOSH !!!!
        I cannot believe u used profanity on a public board!!!
        You need to SERIOUSLY reconsider playing this app…its a GAME! You have obvious anger issues !!

        Dr. Mac: u must be the moderator…do us SERIOUS players a favor and BAN this guy!!


    • Sierra says:

      Dude you can’t expect to get it your first try. And the language is unnecessary. Chill out.

  9. Henry says:

    Add me Henry1174 for serious gem for gem trade . Just got the tree. Looking for a few dedicated gem traders. Will unfriend if no gem received.

  10. derelictmonster says:

    I have used Evergreen and Lichen twice, both times reindeer.

  11. Fireflywishes says:

    I got it with Plant + Cold in the regular breeding cave with the first try. So that combo definitely still works! 🙂

  12. Dustin says:

    Thanks for the input guys. My wife just got it with flower and lichen on her first try. Seems like there is a few combos that work well. Also we both got lunar eclipse (3 in a row) using ghost and snow.

  13. Hilda says:

    Evergreen and lichen, first try! 😉

  14. Dani Khan says:

    Evergreen+Lichen will give you about 11% chance of getting a Reindeer. There are no super solutions as far as combos are concerned in this game, it’s down to luck and persistency. Few people will get one on their first try, not to mention two in a row – but the ones who do will report that if course, as opposed to those who failed. My family got 4 Topaz dragons on seven tries in total, but that’s luck much more than statistics. Anyway, there are actually some 400+ combos that should work for getting the Reindeer – so good luck Reindeering folks! And good persistency! 😉

  15. Dani Khan says:

    PS: don’t add me for gems – I DO have more than six actual real friends. Notch notch…

  16. zeiker says:

    Plant/ lichen… Took three tries in EBC. (Using EBS for lunar eclipse – no luck with that one yet)

  17. iare_alma says:

    Ive tried cold and plant multiple times now ….i keep getting Lichen 🙁
    Oh and i honestly do Gem for Gem 🙂 add me my username is iare_alma . Thanks:)

  18. krisvan says:

    Swamp and cold works for me

  19. Jetx9000 says:

    Hey everyone. Today I decided to try for another reindeer dragon despite already having one from last year, and I got it first try with Blue Fire and Plant. Happy breeding! Hopefully everyone gets one before in ends, they would ha to wait until 2013 for another chance 🙁

  20. Guilder says:

    Evergreen and lichen

  21. Scott says:

    Got it third try in regular breeding cave (plant and cold both lv10????????????????)

  22. SoSoLost says:

    Evergreen and Lichen…
    Also got it with Flower and Lichen earlier.

  23. incubu5 says:

    Got one by using Crystal + Lichen

  24. Gemetaur20 says:

    Ugggggghhhh I keep getting stupid lichens and evergreens. I’m using plant/cold, evergreen/lichen, plant/lichen, and cold/evergreen

  25. Dustin says:

    My wife and I both got it with flower/lichen. I know that there are more than one combo that works but keep using the same ones. I have heard if you pull off one set that is breeding to try a different one, it may start you over in “getting lucky” or getting the one you want. Stick with it and you will get it. 🙂

  26. JOROYJO says:

    Plant snow best combo.

  27. spiffyk4t says:

    Got one with Evergreen and Lichen on Epic Breeding Island.

  28. lolo says:

    Wow I just got a reindeer while trying to get a sun haha!
    I used lvl 10 crystal + lvl 10 lichen on epic breeding island! 😀
    thank you Internet<3!

  29. Erienne says:

    Worked for me with snow and plant

  30. DesertBratt77 says:

    Got both of mine with Flower/Lichen Thanks Doc!!! Now need to get a Panlong before the year is up, a rainbow and a moon. off to check out your recommended breeding combos! 🙂

  31. Grace says:

    Got him with evergreen and lichen. …3rd try..reg breeding cave

  32. Superlucky75 says:

    Lol I’m gonna have nine of these and name them all after Santas reindeer.

  33. Missytwoshoes says:

    Plant & Lichen worked for me on the epic breeding island. Took a couple of goes but finally got there, I suggest you use that combo 🙂 x

  34. Claudette Miskell says:

    Look away folks, there’s about to be a Lichen slaughter at my place. Ugh!

    • Claudette Miskell says:

      I got tired of slaughtering lichens, so I went with the suggestion of sticking with one combo. I went back to plant & cold, and after two more tries I finally got it!
      For a while there I felt like the equivalent of a puppy mill, a dragon mill? I probably sold about 20 dragons before I finally got it. I’m going to name it reingold!

  35. Rob says:

    Hey guys and gals! I know that dragoncalc says that ash and mountain have the best percentage of working. I haven’t been able to get it with any of the listed combos. I’m not very lucky though! Lol. I just got rid of a couple of friends who were not doing gem for gem, so I’m looking for one more person to trade gem for gem daily. If I don’t accept your request, it means I’ve already filled the slot. I gift every day and expect the same! Non-gifters will be unfriended! Send request to Rob91274. Thanks and happy breeding!

  36. Pikachubbxx says:

    I got my reindeer dragon with panlong and paper. Hope this helps!

  37. Casper says:

    flower/lichen first try.

  38. Bonnie says:

    i’ve tried several combos and wasted a few gems and so far no luck!!!

  39. Polyanna06 says:

    I have a gifting tree and zero friends to trade with. Please add me “polyanna06” I will delete anyone who doesn’t trade back. Thanks!

  40. crowshade says:

    Bluefire and Evergreen. First try! Finally, luck is on my side. 😉

  41. Plant and cold for me 1st time too, many thanks for the tips, keep trying if you don’t succeed 1st time, it DOES work :)))))

  42. WAY, did it again, and bingo, another reindeer dragon :)))

  43. I’m quite new to dragonvale and only have 2 friends and neither send me gems, I’m happy to gift gems EVERYDAY if you will do the same, add me, natalielines@ntlworld.com. 🙂

  44. Or my dragonvale name is sugar & sp1ce

  45. Jc says:

    Evergreen and Lichen, first try.

  46. Claudette Miskell says:

    I got three new friends from this posting. All sent gems, but only one has appeared on my friend list in the game, so what am I doing wrong? Please help friends, so you can get your gems. Thanks.

  47. Omen says:

    Can’t wait to get this dragon. I have 2x every other dragon (only 1x Love and 1 x Leap Year) plus 2 display eggs of every other dragon. Including all rare, gem and seasonal. Reindeer will make me complete. Until the next gem arrives. Does anyone think Leap Year will come again in Feb 2013? Can’t wait 4 years 🙂

  48. Claudette Miskell says:

    Thanks for the wonderful invites, but I am full of friends, for now. That was fast!

  49. Anonymous says:

    Why isn’t it snowing in my park? I’ve gotten two and its not snowing! 🙁 WHY?!? WHYYYYYYYYYYYY?!?!?!

  50. Jess says:
