Dragons of Atlantis Water Dragon Egg Guide

Updated on March 13, 2012

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.

      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.

      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.

      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).

      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 5 years ago

      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.

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

    • PBody5205 profile image

      PBody5205 5 years ago

      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).

      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.

      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 ...

    • profile image

      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.

      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
      Author

      PBody5205 5 years ago

      @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...

    • profile image

      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

      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.

      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.

      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 5 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.

      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.
