DragonVale, New dragon, halloween, zombie, apopcalypse

Break a leg no longer applies just to second rate actors. The return of the Zombie Dragon brings new meaning to the term.
A rare and misunderstood dragon, the Zombie dragon is a reliable crowd pleaser. Just be sure to heed the wizard's stern warning to only feed them Dragon Treats. Lest they develop other ... appetites.

Incubation time is 20 hours (16 hours). You must be level 18 or above. It can be bought for 1932 gems, sells for 3 M DC, and earns 1.5 M exp points.

The breeding combo has been confirmed as the locked combination of Pollen + Meteor.

Come by the forum and discuss your strategy for surviving the Zombie Dragon apocalypse with us, but be careful not to get bitten on your way here.

Solar Eclipse, DragonVale, Breed with Earth, Air, Fire

The Solar Eclipse makes a brief return for the last time this year.
"Many people make the mistake of thinking this dragon is the result of an impossible breeding combination between the sun and moon dragons. Instead, this dragon is born only when celestial bodies align properly. Although a wonder to behold, the wizards do not recommend staring directly at them... something about burning your eyes out?"

You can buy one for 2,250 gems, and sell it again for 2,250,000 DC. It earns 100,000 XP. Breeding time is 48Hr (38:24).

Any combination that has Air, Fire and Earth can make a Solar Eclipse! We recommend Air + Lava/Obsidian/Bone as the 3-element combination eliminates the chance of a Rainbow. A second Solar Eclipse Dragon can be bred by breeding one with any of the other Limited Sun/Moon dragons even when expired. We recommend Solar Eclipse + Solstice for the shortest fail time of 23.5 hours. If you are still missing the Rag Doll, then Paper and Howl is one option to try for both.

DragonVale, ghost Dragon, Rare dragon, Halloween, Breed one with Earth hybrid + Cold hybrid.  The suggested combination is Cold + Mud

The Ghost Dragon is back. If you don't already have one, now is your chance to get one in time for Halloween.
"Often mistaken as the spirit of an ancient and benevolent dragon, the ghost dragon remains somewhat of a mystery. Reading the notes of the wizard Sam Hain, 'The ghost dragon only shows up in the middle of the Fall, usually in conjunction with the Bone dragon. My advice? Don't be afraid of ghosts!'"

It has a 15.5 hour breeding time (12 hours 24 min.), it will earn 7,500 XP when hatched and sells for 15K DC. You can also buy this dragon for 75 gems. You must be at level 9 or above to get this dragon.

Any breeding combination that includes cold and earth elements can result in a Ghost dragon. Cold and Lava will also give you a shot at Bone and Frostfire.

Tower Hollow accompanies the Ghost. Get one while it lasts for 310,000 DC.
"There is a rider that gallops throughout the night seeking his home, Tower Hollow, in the middle of Crane Forest. They say he can be seen carrying his head in his arms, which would be quite unsettling... it's a good thing it's just a tall tale! "

DragonVale, Bone Dragon, Rare dragon, Halloween, Breed one with Earth + Fire/flower hybrid

The Bone Dragon is back. If you didn't already get one now is the time to get your dragon for Halloween.
"Bone dragons can only be found for a couple weeks during the year. The rest of the year it is believed that they burrow underground near cemeteries to be around other bones. But I bet if you breed one and put it in a habitat with the other bones, it would stick around. Or perhaps near a heat source to keep away the bone-chilling winter cold?"

It has a 10 hour breeding time (8 hours), it will earn 4,500 XP when hatched and sells for 5K DC. You can also buy this dragon for 25 gems. The breeding combo has been confirmed as earth + fire hybrid. Mud and Lava will breed this dragon and has Opal as a fail. It is also one of the many fails for Ragnarok.

The Bone Dragon is accompanied to market by the Jack-O-Lantern. Available for 2,000 DC.
Traditionally, farmers grow one magic pumpkin each year. Then on Halloween, they carve faces to scare away demons who come to steal their crops. Legend has it that one of these giant pumpkins grew so large that it pulled itself out of the ground and destroyed half a village before it was finally stopped. But that's probably just a rumor. I wouldn't worry about it.

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

October sees the arrival of yet another attempt to end the world. Like the others before it, it is likely doomed to failure. The seeds of the failure lie in the legend of Ragnarok itself. A close examination reveals that it is actually a rebirth of the world. All we will lose is a few of the gods of Asgard. Still it allows us to collect another apocalypse type dragon.

"Lingering long in caverns deep,
Ragnarok dragons took their sleep
Wolfish, serpentine, giant, strong,
In cold, dark earth howled fire song!
Walked by wizards, their kind return,
Treat them well from them you'll learn!

Any breeding pair that includes Dark, Fire, Cold and Earth elements can help you end this cycle of creation and start the next. As with all dragons needing four elements, watch out for visits by the Doctor.

Ragnarok is available from level 18. Buy him for 1,300 gems, sell him for 2,221,024 DC, score 201,413 XP when you hatch him. His breeding time is 39 hrs 27m (or 31:33:36 in an upgraded site).

To aid your quest, the Large Apocalypse Habitat has been released. You can get one of your very own for 4,500,000 DC. It needs 7x7 grid squares to place and takes 24 hours to build. It holds 4 dragons and has an earning cap of 1,250,000 DC

"In summoning the chunks of Garita, no wizard or witch could have predicted the need to contain the ever-expanding magics contained within. Thanks to quick thinking by the witch Vuluca in capping the magic inside a dome, apocalypse dragons everywhere can now enjoy the safer, larger habitat. "

DragonVale, Opal dragon, Rare dragon, Gem Dragon, Breed one with mud + lava

October is here and so is the Opal Gemstone Dragon is back.
"Opal dragons are said to be capable of displaying every color in the visible spectrum. In fact they're even supposed to be able to exhibit some invisible ones as well! Some say that invisible dragons are really just opal dragons parading around in these...harder to see colors. Our wizards can neither confirm nor deny this rumor."

It has a 31 hour breeding time (24 hours 48 mins), it will earn 100 000 XP when hatched and sells for 1.5 million DC. It also has the same earn rate as the other Gemstone Dragons, of 1 gem a week.

The breeding combo has been confirmed as Mud + Lava and it should also help you breed a Bone Dragon when it is (hopefully) rereleased later in the month.

To accompany the Opal dragon, the Miroid Monument has also been re released. Yours for only 1,500 DC
The Miroid Monument was named for King Miroid, who was quite fond of opal dragons. The monument was constructed after the magnificent petrified opal eggs you see upon it were found.

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

For the decorators amongst us, BFS have released themes to enhance the look of our islands.
Ten have been announced so far, with four released for immediate sale. At 250 gems each they don't come cheap though. Or you can buy the full set for a slight discount on the individual prices. At these prices only the gem hoarders will be able to get them. But will they part with their ill gotten hard earned gems? Only time will tell.

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. "
