Equinox Dragon, Rare Dragon, Moon dragon, Sun dragon, breed it with Blazing + Water Hybrid

It is time to enjoy the aerobatic antics of the much admired Equinox Dragon. You can breed your own using the partly locked combination of Blazing and a water hybrid.
"Two times each year, when night and day become equals, equinox dragons reveal themselves. Celebrations for the arrival of these dragons vary greatly, but villages graced with their presence are said to have an especially bountiful harvest. Wizards have since proven this tale to be untrue, but the festivals are so fun, they keep that little secret. "

The Equinox Dragon is available at level 14, can be bought for 2,250 gems, sells for 2.25M DC, and grants 100K XP when hatched. The Equinox Dragon's incubation time is 24 hrs (19:12 Hr).

DragonVale, Leathery Dragon, Third Anniversary, Breed one with Cold, Lightning,

Just in time for the Third Anniversary of Dragonvale. OMG! Has it been three years already??? The wizards at Backflip have been experimenting with new materials for dragons. A strong PETA presence prevented them from making a dragon from true leather, but they did manage to come up with a believable substitute: A leathery substance that is remarkably similar. Just don't ask what is used to make it. At least they avoided the ghastly Leatherette.

"Hailing from the Tannis Valley, the arrival of the leathery dragons coincides with the third anniversary of the magic of DragonVale. Wizards have been digging into their secrets for years. ."

The Leathery Dragon is available at level 12. You can buy it for 1,250 gems and sell it for 2,000,000 DC. It takes 36H to breed (or 28:48 in an upgraded site) and rewards you with 100,000 XP when hatched. It can be placed in any appropriate elemental habitat. It can be bred using the any combination of Lightning, Earth, Fire and Cold elements. Be quick as it is only around for a short time.

Leathery is accompanied to market by the Third Anniversary Statue. This decoration costs 1,000 DC and awards you 5,000 XP. You can buy it starting at level 8, and it is 3x3 in size.

"The wizards have commemorated the third anniversary of DragonVale with a statue of the Earth, Plant, and Fire dragons. Crossing these fundamental breeds is only the beginning of an amazing journey for visitors and wizards alike! "

In other news, there is an Anniversary Comeback. You can also try for Paper and Cotton if you need or want them. The elements required for all three anniversary dragons are very similar, so if you have one, you can breed it and just add the missing element to try for all three at once. Paper and Lightning is one example.

DragonVale, New Island, New levels, Extra Habitats, Upgraded storage

In the lead up to the third anniversary, BFS have treated established players to new challenges.
We have a new island to strive for. I say strive as you need a cool 2 Billion DC to get it. It also takes 60 hours to summon. Then you need to clear it. Then...
We also have new levels. The game has been opened up to Level 60. In good news, and a departure from recent practice,...
Each new level achieved will entitle the lucky player to one extra habitat!

Newer players have not been forgotten. There is a free upgrade to the Storage tower. It now holds an extra 5 decorations.

DragonVale, Sapphire Dragon, Gemstone dragon, Breed one with Mountain + Rain

The return of September means the return of the Sapphire dragon. She must have had a very busy and energetic summer as it seems she is always falling asleep. Or maybe she just suffers from narcolepsy.

"The wizard Mohs went to the Shimmering Isles looking for unique gem to craft into a ring for Yogo, a witch he fancied. Reaching to grab a star sapphire, he grabbed the horn of a sapphire dragon. Mohs might need a spell to correct his vision. Sapphire dragons, like all gemstone dragons, cannot breed."

Everything about the Sapphire Dragon is the same as last year, including its combination: Rain + Mountain. Geode is one of the fails for Sapphire, so if you are still trying for one, you may be in luck. On the other hand, the potential Double Rainbow could mean fewer than usual tries.

Sapphire is available as of level 14. Buy her for 1,500 gems, sell her for 1,5M DC, score 100K XP when you hatch her. her breeding time is 30 hrs (or 24h in an upgraded site).

Also returning is Sapphire's decoration: the Star Sapphire of Trigon. This decoration costs 30K DC and awards you 15K XP.

"The magnetic platform helps hold aloft one of the Stars of Trigon while impressive wizardry was used to keep the storm cloud engulfing the Star. An impressive combined effort of science and magic."

DragonVale, Daydream Dragon, Dream, Breed one with Mirage + Hypnotic

It is late summer in the Dragonvale universe and what with the warmth of the sun and the lap of waves at the beach, it's easy to start imagining things. Look up there. That cloud looks a bit like a dragon. Hang on. It IS a dragon, but not like any I've seen before. It must be a Daydream!

"Do not be surprised to see your visitors gather near the Dream Habitat. It is easy to get lost in thought while gazing upon the Daydream Dragon. It is almost as if you can hear the quiet thrum of a distant ocean shore, the soft melodies of a stringed instrument, drifting off into a bit of a haze wondering... "

Daydream is available at level 26. You can buy it for 2,750 gems and sell it for 8,500,000 DC. It takes 29h to breed (or 23:12 in an updated site) and rewards you with 4,200,000 XP when hatched. At level 10 it earns 334DC/m. It is unaffected by boosts. Unsurprisingly it resides in the Dream habitat.

There is only one combination for breeding a Daydream dragon. It is Mirage + Hypnotic.

Daydream is accompanied to market by the Sweet Deamin' tree. It contains references to the song Daydream Believer and the Johnny Appleseed legend. This decoration costs 750,000 DC and awards you 375,000 XP. You can buy it starting at level 26, and it is 3x3 in size.

"When the witch Jean discovered this tree she fell into a restful slumber. Upon waking she felt so refreshed that she devoted her life to spreading the seeds of this miraculous tree across the land. "

DragonVale, Amber Dragon, Gemstone dragon, Breed one with Quake + Evergreen

It is mid-August once more and the Amber dragon has returned to the market, following the departure of the Jade dragon.

"First discovered in the Drakar Forest, the amber dragon is one of the oldest specimens of dragonkind. The amber dragon's skin slowly hardens as the dragon ages, sometimes trapping remnants from the ancient world."

Amber is available at level 11. You can buy it for 1,500 gems and sell it for 1,500,000 DC. It takes 30h 26m 15s to breed (or 24h 21m in an updated site) and rewards you with 100,000 XP when hatched. Just like with the Jade dragon, a level 10 Amber dragon earns 2 gems per month.

There is but one combination for breeding an Amber dragon, and it is Quake + Evergreen.

Amber's decoration is the Tear of the Cataclysm. The description for this item hinted at the introduction of the Light and Dark elements late last year. This decoration costs 5,000 DC and awards you 2,500 XP. You can buy it starting at level 11, and it is 1x1 in size.

"Wrought by the terrible forces of the Cataclysm, these extraordinary chunks of blue amber are extracted from deep within the Scar of the World. Wizards are busy investigating the mysterious play of dark and light within these artifacts. "

DragonVale, Geode Dragon, Golden Hybrid, Breed one with Water + Earth elements

Whoever said BFS must have rocks in their head must have been right. Hot on the heels of the Leaf dragon dragon comes the all singing, all dancing permanent Geode dragon.

"These dragons were recently discovered deep within the Tull Caverns. The Wizard scholars are abuzz with the mysteries surrounding this dragon, some theorize that they are the ancient ancestors of gemstone dragons. While sharing a marked resemblance to gemstone dragons, they are unable to generate magic gems and retain the ability to breed with other dragons."

OK I may have been exaggerating about the singing. (Unless you are a Killishandra fan!) And the dancing. Oh and the rocks in their heads. That's Trolls. You can get this latest Golden Hybrid using any Earth and Water element. We hope one rises out of the mud of the river for you soon.

Geode is available from level 14. Buy him for 675 gems, sell him for 600,000 DC, score 750K XP when you hatch him. His breeding time is 23 hrs (or 18:24 in an upgraded site).

DragonVale, Hydra Dragon, Breed one with Current + Quake, Olympic

BFS is very happy to announce a new mythological dragon from the dark realm. I guess once you breed one, it is no longer mythological. Just don't cut off any of its heads. It will grow two for every one cut off!

"Hydra dragons are extremely picky eaters. Since no two heads can agree on what to eat at a given time, it's a wonder they finish a meal at all! Fortunately, the wizards have learned to provide them with a buffet at mealtimes, so each head gets to eat what it wants! "

Hydra is available at level 17. You can buy one for 2,150 gems, sells for 1,800,000 DC and awards 350,000 exp. She requires 34h to breed (or 27h 12m in an upgraded site).

Breed one with Current + Quake.

If you are running out of room, BFS have kindly provided an upgrade to the Olympus Habitat For 9,000,000 DC you can get room for four dragons with a cap of 1,250,000.

"Inspired by the Olympus dragons' thirst for achievement, the wizards have devised a larger habitat. Sporting an even larger brazier and spill-over seating, your guests can be assured prime viewing of all Olympus dragon's atheletic antics! "

Dragonvale, Summer Dragon, Fire, Lightning, water

Those lazy hazy crazy days are back.The seasonal habitat has grown its summer foliage, as has the Seasonal Dragon. Also the cicada like Summer Dragon has made its reappearance. So stock up on soda and pretzels and beer and mosey on over to the forum for a chat!

"While researching seasonal magic in the far off Forests of Farn, the wizard Shamash discovered the summer dragon one evening by tripping over it. Thankfully, the dragon didn't mind or even bother to wake up. Since then, summer dragons have been famed as the hardest sleeping dragons, probably because they are some of the most active dragons during the day! "

Available from L14. Breeding time is 24hrs/19:12 , can be bought for 1500 gems, sold for DC 1,500,000, and scores you 50,000 XP when hatched. This is a limited dragon.

Dragonvale, Dream Dragon, Light, Dark, Doctor, Four Elements

Shades of Hamlet and Val Jean! Even Mickey gets a mention. Martin and Jeannie will be jealous. And as for Rand, well he's known about them for years. A new dragon. A new epic element and a new habitat. What a dream. Or is it a nightmare? Let us know how you go getting one on the forum!

"What dragons may come, when we have shuffled off this vale's veil, and worked magic while we slumbered? Well, it seems Young Witch Feiljean fell asleep practicing at her spells one night, but kept right on casting. In fact, others watched in wonder as the slumbering apprentice worked magic more powerful than all but a few have ever seen! When the night was over, most of the magic had faded away, but the great, strange dragons that had appeared that night remained. They are beautiful but elusive creatures, and tend to vanish quickly if you approach them directly. "

Available from L26. Breeding time is 50hrs/40hrs , can be bought for a whopping 3,600 gems, sold for DC 10,000,000, and scores you 5,000,000 XP when hatched. This is a permanent dragon, but has some epic fails that you cannot avoid. Check it out on the forum!

You will of course need a new habitat when you finally snare one of these beauties. Though at 50,000,000DC to buy, you had better start saving now.
"Some dragons take a nap, some hibernate, some never slumber...and then there are those that exist in a constant dreaming state. It took some time to conjure a stable manifestation of the famed Morpheon, a habitat half real and half dream, your dream dragons will be quite comfortable here. It's best to keep your visitors from wandering in, though, as it's easy to get lost in dreams"

It is also accompanied by the Window of Reverie. Available for 10,000,000 DC
Some say gazing into the depths of the Window of Reverie is a portal into your own dreams. Others say it's a portal into another dimesion, maybe even where the light and dark dragons were awaiting their return to this world. Skeptics think it's just a magical illusion of a starry night.
