Dragons of Atlantis Water Dragon Egg Guide

In Dragons of Atlantis, a Water Dragon Egg is required to start your first Outpost and raise your Great Water Dragon.  An outpost allows you to have a second city where you can farm more resources and train more troops.  Each Outpost that you have (there are more coming as the game develops including a Stone Dragon Outpost to be released shortly), the more Wildernesses you can control, which help with food production for your armies. 

This guide will walk you step by step through the best way to obtain a Water Dragon Egg and start your first Outpost.

Where to find a Water Dragon Egg

Water Dragon Eggs are found by defeating level 7 or higher Lakes. In your attack, you must send a Great Dragon with your troops in order to find a Water Dragon Egg. This is a new addition to the game and has changed since the original writing of this guide. This change allowed for a higher drop rate for the Water Dragon Eggs but only allows you to send one attack at a time.

Farming for your Egg

The best way to farm for your Water Dragon Egg is to find a level 7 Lake that is close to your city and conquer it over and over. Make sure that you control a wilderness for each open slot (based on the level of your castle) so that after your army attacks and defeats the Lake, they automatically return to your city and can be sent out again.

If you have a wilderness slot open, conquer the highest level wilderness your army can and fill each slot before starting to farm for your Water Dragon Egg.
If you have a wilderness slot open, conquer the highest level wilderness your army can and fill each slot before starting to farm for your Water Dragon Egg.

Fast Farming

When farming for your Water Dragon Egg, it doesn't matter if there are monsters defending the level 7 Lake or not, your egg could still drop. The fastest way to farm your egg is by following the steps below:

  1. Find the closest level 7 Lake to your city.
  2. Attack it with at least 1,200 Lowbowmen (LBM) and your Great Dragon. Make sure you have your research of Medicine, Weapons Calibration, and Metallurgy to at least level 5. If you have lower levels of research, add more LBM. You will also have to have researched Aerial Combat and found all 4 pieces of Great Dragon Armor.
  3. Wait until your Great Dragon is healed.
  4. Repeat.

When farming, make sure to keep working on upgrading your other buildings or farming other anthropus camps if you have the troops and generals to spare. Once you find your egg, read my Water Outpost Guide to help you set up your Outpost the right way!

This is outdated. Level 7 lakes are dangerous now cause "the plague" has been brought into the game. It affects level 7 lakes only and there´s a big chance your troops will die when attacking a level 7 lake.

Water dragon eggs can be found in 5+ lakes by the way; if you wanna play safe you´ll skip the 7!

Thanks for your comments, but this guide is NOT outdated. There is no such thing in the game as "the plague." It is a rumor based on the idea of negative food production impacting your troops, which has been confirmed by Dragons of Atlantis that will not be implemented into the game. If DoA implements a feature like this, they will message all players of the change.

You can use this method to farm level 5 and 6 lakes, which may also produce a water dragon egg, but my research showed that level 7 Lakes were the best place to farm a Water Dragon Egg.

And can u also tell wad should I do to get so much troop to conquer lvl 7 lake as I have around 200000 to 400000 of each resources


stilton 5 years ago

there was something about the plague when the 'Cassandra's vision' message was sent out. it apparently affected a few people and their troops did die out but i cannot confirm as i was attacked that day(stupidly left troops to defend the city) and my troops were lost.

how do i control a plain? i have the water dragon egg edi but did not kno how to get a plain under my control.. thanks


PBody5205 profile image

PBody5205 5 years ago Author

Hi Calvin, to control a plain all you have to do is conquer it like you would conquer any other wilderness. Just make sure that you have an open slot for a wilderness.


Jenn 5 years ago

I just hit a level 7 lake with two separate attacks and got my water dragon egg. First try. That surprised me!


PE2 5 years ago

how many army do we need o attck plain level 9 or 10?


PBody5205 profile image

PBody5205 5 years ago Author

I would not attack a level 9 or 10 wilderness with less than 35,000 longbowmen or 25,000 Battle Dragons. Make sure you have researched weapons calibration and dragonry to at least level 7 as well (the higher the better).


nhile 5 years ago

Any requirements or needs before farming an water dragon egg?, some says, I need a GD with armor to join my troops when attacking a lvl 5 - 6 lake. is that true? or I can get the water dragon egg on that said level even though I don't have a GD on my troops?


PBody5205 profile image

PBody5205 5 years ago Author

Dragons of Atlantis is doing a promotion where if you attack a level 5 or higher lake with a Great Dragon, you have a good chance of getting a Water Dragon Egg. This will only be happening for a short time.


Guest 5 years ago

The requirement changed? Because I have attacked more than a 1000 times diferent lakes and no Egg apeared. I haven't realize that I must include the Great Dragon in the attack. Can anyone confirm this? Thanks.


Chris 5 years ago

Yes the great dragon must be included in the attack. The egg can be found in level 5+ lakes.


VB 5 years ago

So this post is outdated, isn't it? Because you have to include Great Dragon. Can someone explain how to do that? Do I need to get dragon armor first or what? Please step by step


PBody5205 profile image

PBody5205 5 years ago Author

This post is not outdated. You DO NOT need to include your Great Dragon in your attack to get a Water Dragon Egg, it just improves your chances.


shanna 5 years ago

do you have to have the dragon armour before attempting to get a water dragon egg?


PBody5205 profile image

PBody5205 5 years ago Author

With a recent change, you now have to send a Dragon along with an attack when looking for a Water Dragon egg. I will be updating my guides soon to accommodate this change. For now, refer to my guide on how to find your Great Dragon Armor (which has not changed).

YOU DO NEED YOUR DRAGON IN YOUR ATTACK AS A REQUIREMENT.

i found my water dragon egg in a lv 7 lake with out a great dragon not so important to have a water dragon in an attack.


icoooooooooooooollllllllllllll 5 years ago

what troops do i need to win a lv 9 lake?


Buili Nuili 5 years ago

So we CAN get the egg without the dragon in wilds lvl 7+ or can we get it in wilds lvl 5+? I was wondering because it's a pain with the new requirements. Thanks.

Man sooo close till i get my water dragon egg. But i have 3 high level lakes near me so its all good :D


Behoun 5 years ago

I attacked lvl 8 Lake about 200 times. Then I found a text saying you need a Great Dragon in march for water dragon egg to be found. Is that true? I have already sent 3 waves with the Great Dragon to lvl 8 lake, but the dragon always gains some demage (even no troops are guarding the Lake) and healing takes more than 1 hour. It is really time-consuming to wait such a long time ...


Behoun 5 years ago

The new system is really stupid. My friend got the egg after 3 attacks on lvl 6 Lake, I have sent 17 waves so far on Lake lvl 8 and have nothing. I would appreciate if each attack would increase the probability of success - and let's you have 100% after attach 15 or something like that. It seeem it is completely random.


CarraLily 5 years ago

i've attacked lvl 7 lake about hundreds times b4 with only LBW,still no success..then after getting Great Dragon,i attacked again and again with LBW help but still shit..really need help fast from PBODY..huuu


PBody5205 profile image

PBody5205 5 years ago Author

@Carralily - try sending attacks with your Great Dragon supported by LBM. The new system requires that a Great Dragon or Elemental Dragon be present to get a Dragon Egg. I just haven't had a chance to update these guides...


CarraLily 5 years ago

haha..LBM not LBW,my mistake.but i do send Great Dragon with 6000+ LBM everytime,plus Great Dragon injuries each attack,made the game really time consuming


Terrorblade 5 years ago

how i can attack lake level 5?20000 or 25000 LBM


Ryan 5 years ago

By the way, you can substitute 400 of the Longbowmen with Minotaurs. (I read the Dragons of Atlantis wiki, and so far Minos seem to be the "budget Fangtooths" of the game.)

Also, when exactly will a Fire outpost guide come out? I ask primarily for completion reasons.


airlock 5 years ago

how many raids did it take for most peeps to get each water dragon piece of armor???


blah 5 years ago

Patch been updated, you require to bring your Great Dragon to farm the eggs and armors. Therefore, you cannot able to do multi attack anymore :(


NHG 5 years ago

jakedxgv 5 years ago

PBody5205 profile image

PBody5205 5 years ago Author

You need to have researched Aerial Combat to be able to send your Great Dragon out on attacks. To research this, your Dragon Keep needs to be level 8.


Illyrian 5 years ago

does it matter with what troops you attack a level 7 lake or it is OK as long as you win the battle?


PBody5205 profile image

PBody5205 5 years ago Author

No, as long as you win the battle you can find a dragon egg.

Yes you need a great dragon in the attack to find the egg.


BE123 4 years ago

Well, you don't need a great dragon in the attack and it can be a level 5 lake but it may be harder to receive a water dragon e.


PBody5205 profile image

PBody5205 4 years ago Author

Yes, you do need to have a Great Dragon in your attack to find a Water Dragon Egg. It's a requirement set by Kabam.

It is a rumor based on the idea of negative food production impacting your troops, which has been confirmed by Dragons of Atlantis that will not be implemented into the game. If DoA implements a feature like this, they will message all players of the change.

but that doesn't mean it will NEVER be implemented right?


PBody5205 profile image

PBody5205 4 years ago Author

Kabam can always make a change to the game mechanics. A negative food change would be a huge change for many high level players and make the competition for wildernesses very tough. Right now there is no negative impact of having negative food production.


sally 4 years ago

well, I'm glad you mentioned it, I am getting bashed in the "forum" about this and feel there should be some penalty for negative food consumption as right now, and some players swear DOA stated they will NEVER change it.

can you share this link on your site to help get poll votes about the issue?

Sorry, anyone who follows this advice is doomed to loose their LBMs. Even if it doesn't happen the first time, or even the fifth time, it will happen. You need to add a few hundred Armored Transports to your attack. Trust me, you won't loose any of your ATs, and they'll take all of the attack allowing your LBMs to hit, unharmed. Make sure your ATs are added to the attack, unless you want to spend days retraining LBMs.

Hello , I had attack a Level 8 Lake but didn't get water dragon egg, do I need to abandoned it and attack it again to get a water dragon egg ?


PBody5205 profile image

PBody5205 4 years ago Author

Yes, just follow the steps in the guide and you will find your water dragon egg eventually. Make sure all of your wilderness slots are full and the keep attacking the same level 7 or higher Lake with your Great Dragon and troops.
