Some people have speculated that with the new boosted breed the chances of rarer dragons is decreased but that hasn't been confirmed.

We all have slumps, right? Maybe this is just a bad week for you. It's all random.

They made new breeding rules for the new dragons. I believe it's become much harder to breed...

Boosted breeds have given me more common dragons. The ones that wouldn't even make sense to come as an outcome. I'm not so sure about that Boosted Breed.

It makes sense that the chance of getting each dragon would be reduced; the more possible outcomes you add, the lower the chance of getting each one. That said, I seem to be getting more rares than usual.

Do you have an example of that? What do you mean?

I'd like to add that I have been getting plenty of rares. I just sped some up, I have a Tiny and Moon just now and recently I got Kite, Snowman, Familiar....

Same thing happened to me before I got my Night. Took a lot of tries.

I don't think so, anymore. I just got four new dragons in 3 days. So, ummm, no. But of course, this can change rather quickly.

It was confirmed by Jake that the chances for rare dragons have not been decreased.


We have not lowered the chances for breeding rare dragons normally. We've made advancements to the dragon breeding system to allow for new features. You may see certain combinations resulting a little more frequently or a little less frequently, but across the board we have not increased rarity. The chance to get a dragon that is rare or above is the same. I'd like to make that very clear: we have not done any sort of across game rarity increase. You can even get Diamond hybrid dragons from some combinations you could not before! Our advancements make it easier to bring you new features like Black and Pink Dragons, rarity boosting features, and more to come.

Thanks for asking!

Thanks for posting that, I hadn't seen it. It's also good that he's confirmed that rarity has not changed.

I'm curious what he meant when he said that about Diamond hybrids though, does anyone know what that means?

yup! so in the past you were only able to breed any diamond hybrid with diamond + pure color. diamond + hybrid never worked and only resulted that hybrid you were breeding your diamond with. for example:

diamond + sunrise never gave you angel or gold. the only possibilities with that combination were sunrise, griffin and leopard.

but recently a few players have confirmed breeding a gold dragon with fairy + diamond combo so now it seems to be possible to breed hybrids with diamond + hybrid :) i'm not 100% sure but i think i might be right..

....I never knew it worked that way. Well there's a couple breedings wasted.

This is correct :)
