Breeding Clarifications

Mon Mar 19, 2018 10:04 am
Hello everyone,

There have been many rumours on how to increase the chance of breeding dragons and we'd like to clarify a few things on this topic.

First and foremost, we confirm that using higher level parents increases the chance of getting rarer babies.

While we won’t disclose the actual percentages, we can tell that the change is noticeable if we compare using the same parents at lower and at a higher level.
Let's see an example:
- Using Dragon 'A' at level 4 and Dragon 'B' at level 4 to breed a legendary dragon. Your chance is Y.
- Using Dragon 'A' at level 80 and Dragon 'B' at level 80, the chance to get the legendary dragon is more than twice as high (2Y).
IMPORTANT Disclaimer: Keep in mind that we are NOT saying what Y is! We are just saying that if Y is 1% for level 4 parents, then with the same parents at level 80 the chance would be more than 2%.  If Y would be 0.1% for level 4, then with level 80 parents the chance would be more than 0.2% and so on.

We'd also like to let you know that the following rumours are NOT true:
- Keeping the parent dragons 1 level apart helps
- The order of parents counts
- Changing the order of the parents every now and then helps
- Choosing the dragons from the Breeding Den directly is different from choosing them from the automatic direct in the Hub
- Petting the dragons before sending them to breed increases the chance
- The time of the day (to start at 6 am or 8 pm for example) has an impact on the outcome
- Enchanting counts as extra levels when it comes to breeding

Summing it up, only the level of the parents has an impact on breeding chances and other rumours are simply false. If something isn't quite clear about this don't hesitate to ask us!

Does VIP level or the amount of money spent effect breeding?

Thank you very much for this official statement about something that has rumours around it for years. Highly appreciated, feels like a bomb.
Based on my knowledge and experience and based on what I have read here, on FB and the wiki over the past years (y) is a really tiny number...

So, to clarify then - Rose petals on the bed, and a bottle of bubbly on the side table do NOT in fact help with breeding?

What about the "rareness" (Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic) when it comes to legendary breeding? I'm quite sure somewhere in the game there was written, that rarer parents are more likely to produce rarer outcomes...
