Dragon City Tips and Breeding Guide

Dragon City is a Facebook Pokémon-like social game that allows players to build habitats, breed dragons and pit them against other dragons in a battle arena. There are many elements similar to Pokémon, including battling against other breeds of dragons. The social game is actually a stripped-down version of the original game and has pretty simple gameplay elements to make it easy for casual gamers of all ages.

There are plenty of things to learn before you start combining those fire-breathing creatures and unleash them against your Facebook opponents. There are two types of currencies – the usual gold that can be earned by doing simple tasks and gems, which are difficult to earn and require players to spend cash to earn them. This guide provides useful tips on the currency system, dragon strengths and weaknesses and breeding:

Battle Guide: Strengths and Weakness

In this game, each dragon is governed by an element. Each elemental dragon has its own strengths and weaknesses. When you collect or breed dragons take a note of the element associated with it. The table below highlights the strengths and weakness of each elemental fire-breathing monster:

Tips to Get Free Gems

One of the most important currencies in Dragon City is gems. Besides being used to quicken the time-consuming egg-hatching process, gems are used for upgrading the hatchery and the combination tree. While you can purchase them with real currency, there are other ways to get them. Here are some tips to get gems free:

  • You get one free gem every time you level-up.
  • You also get a chance to earn gems as rewards if you log-in daily. Make sure you log in to the game every day. This increases the chances of earning gems. The more regular you are, the bigger the rewards and more are the chances of getting gems. The Daily Bonus rewards 3 Gems in the fifth day if you log-into the game for 5 consecutive days.
  • Don’t miss the Monday rewards. It is another way to get gems free. It is a bonus reward that provides random gifts to you. There are high chances of winning at least five gems if you enter the draw.
  • The commonest way of earning free gems is to complete certain tasks, such as filling surveys, shopping etc. The developers have teamed up with some payment providers, who require players to sign up for their services and get free gems. Except completing free surveys, don’t fall for sign-ups that require real cash as it involves real money and so this isn’t a free way to earn gems.
  • Battling against rival Dragon owners is also another sure-shot way to earn gems. Some key World Leagues reward successful players with gems. Engage in Dragon Battles to win more chances of getting free trinkets.
  • Always take part in promotions and special events conducted by the game developers. This is another way to earn some extra gem. Promotions and special events are rare, so don’t miss this opportunity.
  • Completing certain goals that provide gems as rewards is a great way to earn them for free. One of the goals that provide gem is breeding dragons.
  • Collect monsters and complete the Book of Dragons to earn gems. The gem earnings are based on the collection type. For example, collecting all Legendary Dragons will earn you five gems.

How to Read the Table Below?

Please Read the Table Horizontally to Get your Combos Right [Example: First Column Element (Earth)+ Row Element (Water)= Mud Dragon]

Dragon City Combinations

Dragon breeding can begin only when you have three elemental dragons. At first you will have to build earth, fire and water habitats – three basic habitats to hatch three basic elemental dragons – Earth Dragon, Fire Dragon and Water Dragon.

With these basic Dragons, you can then breed more dragons by building a Breeding mountain (Click the Build button>Buildings>Breeding Mountain). Here’s a Smart Table that easily explains dragon breeding combinations and the result:

Gastón 4 years ago

Simple question,the more dragons you have,it takes more time to breed? it works like that? i mean,if i only have 2 dragons,it takes 5 min to breed,and vice versa?


HaNz 4 years ago

excuse me ..

why every time I "breeding dragon" does not correspond with what is in want?

do you understand what I mean?

For example, I want platinum dragon (metal & ice) ..

completed, the results are not platinum dragon ..

but the pearl dragon ..

-. -?

why?

If you breed a Neon Dragon and a Penguin Dragon, what do you think will be the result?

Both have dark attributes : Neon(Electric, Dark) Penguin(Ice, Dark)

Do you think a Dark Dragon will be the result?


Johanka Lopourová 3 years ago

The best combination is to breed Alpine d. + Medieval d.

You can get soccer, armadillo and so on. I heard that coolfire can be bred by this comb., but I tried it and it didn't work.

Allan 2 years ago

Many of the breeding comments written before the July 2013 "upgrade" appear to be now incorrect. I was lucky that I got a crystal dragon just before the change over, and though now level 61, have never got any of the legendary dragons using any of the breeding advise on any of the forums.

So if someone has advise that is after July 2013 that describes which dragons to breed to get either legendary or pure dragons, please share. So far the so called self appointed experts have come up with zero breeding formulas that actually work.

Having read the frustration of so many other unsuccessful breeding attempts I have no doubt that breeding advise that actually produce positive results within say ten tries (my average before I give up) would become something of a folk hero among dragon city players. If there really is a valid way of breeding these rarer dragons..... prove it!


BENAYA PATRICK 2 years ago

BLIZZARD + LASER = SKY DRAGON

VAMPIRE +NINJA = CHINESE DRAGON

KING + QUEEN = JOKER DRAGON

COOLFIRE + ICE CUBE = VIKING DRAGON

PIRATE LV 15 + WATERFALL LV 10 = WIZARD DRAGON

THANK YOU FOR ALL
