Spook Dragon

The Spook Dragon is a limited Halloween dragon that is only available during the annual Night of the Phantoms event.

During this event, the Spook Dragon can be purchased directly for 300 gems. If you miss the event window, you’ll have to wait until the next year to have a chance at buying this dragon.

Some alternative options for getting a Spook Dragon include:

  • Egg of Mystery – Spook has a small chance of resulting from spectral eggs.
  • Bring Em Back – Previous limiteds are available if you have the monument.
  • Rift Breeding – The Rift allows breeding past event dragons.

Once you have a Spook Dragon, you can use it to breed for the Ghostly Spectre.

Spectre Dragon

The Spectre Dragon was introduced as part of theSpectral Sabbatical event. During this event it can be directly purchased with gems.

If you don’t have a monument, some ways to acquire a Spectre Dragon include:

  • Egg of Mystery – Spectre has a small chance from spectral eggs.
  • Rift Breeding – The Rift gives chances for past event dragons.
  • Bring Em Back – Previous limited dragons can be bred if you have the monument.

With both a Spectre and Spook dragon ready, you can now breed for the Ghostly Spectre!
