Dragonvale Breeding Basics

  1. Your gold doesn’t rot. You can play for a while and come back. You won’t have the extra money that you would have had from playing, but you won’t have lost anything!
  2. Breeding two of the same dragon gives you another of the same dragon.
  3. Cross breeding dragons is fun. They create new and interesting dragons.

Dragonvale Time Considerations

The first aspect of time that matters for breeding is that some dragons can only be bred during certain times of the year. Those times are listed above. In addition certain dragons take more times to breed or hatch. You can speed these up via upgrading and you can get more gems so you can instantly complete them.


That is the basics of Dragonvale breeding. If you are looking for tips and tricks on more specific aspects then let me know in the comments.
