Breeding two dragons of the same Element will always produce an Elemental dragon of that same Element (e.g., breeding two Nature dragons always produce a Nature dragon.) When trying to obtain Hybrids by breeding, some Dragons are more difficult to obtain than others. All Dragons are assigned a Difficulty Group from 1 to 3, e.g.:
- Difficulty Group 1: Sea and Nature
- Difficulty Group 2: Terra and Flame
- Difficulty Group 3: Electric, Ice, Metal and Dark
For more details --> see Breeding System.
Hybrids are obtained by breeding two Elementals of different types. However, as Elementals have only 1 Element, they can't be bred with an Elemental Dragon of the Opposing Element. This makes it impossible to breed a Rare Hybrid (Dragons that have Opposing Elements) without involving a Hybrid.
As of the LaW update, if there are 2 Pure Elements (Pure Dragon or Pure Hybrid Dragons) in the breeding, you have a small chance to obtain a Legend.
As of the LaW Update, Pure Element are no longer "wildcards" in Breeding. Its just an elmenent now
There are generally two varieties of Hybrid Dragons that can result from breeding different Elementals. The Elements of the resulting Hybrid does not depend on the order of the parents, although some Hybrids are easier to breed than others.
Note: Gen-II and all its subcategories is the largest category, containing a theoretical 1100 possible Element combinations, not including variants with the same Elements, in the same order (e.g., EX-T Dragons).
Generation II-c: The Pure Hybrid Dragons. These dragons have two Elements, and can be bought at the Store for a large amount of . This generation is bound to Category 5. As the Pure Element has no Opposite at the moment, they can be bred directly with the any Elementals to produce only one possible outcome per breeding.
As the LaW update has missing some Light, War & Pure hybrids, when you try to breed them with Elementals that produces no such possible dragon, the result will be the Archangel Dragon or War Dragon or Pure Dragon again.
Hybrids may be bred together to obtain other Hybrids. If both parents share at least one Element, breeding may also result in an Elemental.
Breeding an Elemental with a Hybrid guarantees one of the Offspring's Element.
Breeding two Hybrids which carry opposing elements may sometimes produce a Rare Hybrid.
As the target Offspring possesses Opposite Elements, you can't breed members of this Generation with 2 Elementals. You need 2 Hybrids or Exclusives in order to have a small chance at obtaining a Rare Hybrid.
Breeding together Rare Hybrids can result in any of the dragons expected from breeding together two regular hybrids.
Generation III-b: The Stage 3 Rare Hybrid Dragons. These dragons have 3 elements where two are opposites of each other, and can be bought for gems at the store. This generation varies between Category 2 and Category 3.
Generation III-b is otherwise similar to Generation III.
Note: In order to result a dragon from this generation you will have to unlock Stage 3. It's currently unknown how this process works.
"I note, however, that it appears easier to breed a Gen III-b dragon using a wildcard and a Hybrid that already possesses two of the 3 elements required." (talk) 17:29, August 3, 2013 (UTC)
You need to breed two Pures/Pure Hybrids in order to have a small chance of obtaining a Legend.
When used in breeding, Legends function as 'wildcards'. Breeding a wildcard with other Dragons produces a random dragon which always carries at least one Element from the non-wildcard. Breeding together two Legend Dragons results in a random egg.
Generation EX: The Exclusive Dragon. These dragons can't be bought at the Store or bred. This generation varies between Category 2-5 and are not bound to the limitations of the breeding generations. Generation EX was originally called Generation X group.
Unlike generation EX, members of this Generation can be bred. Breeding will involve a wildcard if the Target Dragon possesses more than 2 Elements. In order to unlock these dragons on your array list 1, both parents need to be at level 10 or higher. Other than this requirement, breeding will follow the same process as Generation II. This Generation works with a new process so you only have a tiny chance that you will get this dragon from breeding.
Generation EX-II-b: Unlike generation EX-II, 1 or both parents are required to be at level 15 or higher in order to unlock these dragons for your array list.
Generation EX-II-c: Unlike generation EX-II, 1 or both parents are required to be level 20 or higher in order to unlock these dragons for your array list.
Generation EX-II-d: Unlike generation EX-II, the parents don't require a particular level. There is only a small chance that these dragon will be unlocked for your array list.
Generation EX-III: The Exclusive Rare Hybrid Dragon. These dragons have two or more Elements, and can be bought at the store for gems. This generation varies between category 3-5.
These Dragons can be bred using two different Hybrids. In order to unlock these dragons on your array list, 1 or both parents need to be level 10 or higher. Other than this requirement it will follow the same process as generation III. This generation works with a new process so you only have a tiny chance that you will get this dragon from breeding.
Generation EX-III-b: Unlike generation EX-III, 1 or both parents are required to be level 15 or higher in order to unlock these dragons on your array list.
Generation EX-III-c: Unlike generation EX-III, 1 or both parents are required to be level 20 or higher in order to unlock these dragons on your array list.
Generation EX-III-d: Unlike generation EX-III, the parents don't require a level. You only have a small chance that these dragon will be unlocked to your array list.
Generation EX-T: The Exclusive Themed Dragon. This dragon can't be bred.
