Breeding Combinations for the Topaz Dragon
Now let’s get into the different combinations you can use to breed the Topaz Dragon. With some luck and patience, one of these should produce the coveted golden egg.
Using Basic Dragons
The most straightforward way to breed Topaz is by pairing two basic Dragons with the Fire and Lightning elements. However, this also has the lowest chance of success.
Fire + Lightning
- Fire Dragon + Lightning Dragon
- Ash Dragon + Current Dragon
Because these parent Dragons have just one element each, it can take many tries before hitting the right combo for Topaz. But if you don’t have many other options, keep attempting with different pairs of single-element Fire and Lightning Dragons.
Using Hybrid Dragons
Upgrading to hybrid Dragon parents greatly improves your odds of breeding Topaz. Combining Dragons with both the Fire and Lightning elements boosts the chances for success.
Here are some top hybrid pairs to try:
Fire + Lightning Hybrids
- Scorpia Dragon + Soccer Dragon
- Charlatan Dragon + Momento Dragon
- Equinox Dragon + Razzle Dragon
Some good Fire hybrids to use include the Scorpia, Charlatan, and Equinox Dragons. For Lightning, the Soccer, Momento, and Razzle Dragons make solid matches. Mix and match to find your perfect pair!
Using Epic Dragons
For the best results, breed with Epic Dragons that have the Fire and Lightning elements. This gives you the highest chance for a Topaz Dragon egg.
Fire + Lightning Epics
- Heat Dragon + Current Dragon
- Delirium Dragon + Bolt Dragon
- Dawn Dragon + Dusk Dragon
Epic Dragons can be tricky to acquire, but they are worth the effort for Topaz breeding. Luckily, many of the best Epics like Heat, Delirium, Dawn, Dusk, Current, and Bolt are permanent residents available year-round in the game.
Using Opposite Elements
An unorthodox but effective approach is to breed Dragons with the opposite elements of Fire and Lightning. This “blind breeding” method relies on random chance but can pay off.
- Cold Dragon + Plant Dragon
- Evergreen Dragon + Lichen Dragon
- River Dragon + Rain Dragon
Trying unlikely element pairs like Cold + Plant or Evergreen + Lichen may randomly produce a Topaz Dragon egg after many attempts. Though less efficient, this method can work if you lack better breeding options.
Tips for Breeding Topaz Faster
Beyond the right Dragon pairs, a few tips can help boost your chances and speed up breeding the Topaz Dragon:
- Upgrade Breeding Caves – Use higher-level Breeding Caves like the Epic Breeding Island to improve breeding success rate.
- Level Up Parent Dragons – Max out your potential parent Dragons to at least level 10 for better odds.
- Use Boosts – Apply boosts like the Epic Breeding Island Boost to increase the likelihood of rare Dragons.
- Cooperative Breeding – Breed with friends who have the Topaz Dragon to significantly increase breeding speed.
- Retry with Failed Breeds – Some “failed” breeds can still produce a Topaz Dragon egg if retried.
With smart combinations, boosted caves, and some patience for the 29 hour incubation time, you should eventually welcome a Topaz Dragon hatchling into your park!
Habitats for the Topaz Dragon
Once you’ve successfully bred your Topaz Dragon, you’ll need the right habitats to house it. As a dual-element Dragon, Topaz can live in any Fire or Lightning habitat.
Here are some of the best options:
- Fire Habitats – Fire Shrub, Fire Continent, Fire Grotto
- Lightning Habitats – Lightning Shrub, Lightning Continent, Lightning Grotto
- Epic Habitats – Epic Fire Habitat, Epic Lightning Habitat
- Omnitats – Provides for all Element Dragons
Aim for the highest capacity habitats you can afford, as Topaz takes up a whopping 30 spaces. The Giant habitats offer the most room but require significant gem purchases. Omnitats are a great flexible option for housing any elemental Dragon in your park.
With the long incubation time, be sure to have habitats available and ready before the Topaz egg finishes!
Uses for Topaz Dragons
So you went through the effort of breeding Topaz Dragons – now what? Here are some of the best uses for these rare lightning firebirds in your park:
Generation of Gold and XP
With strongly elevated rates of 25 gold/min and 250 XP/min, Topaz Dragons generate solid in-game profits. Focus on leveling up your Topaz Dragons to further boost their output. A few high-level Topaz Dragons can passively finance many of your park’s needs and expansions.
Battling for Orbs and Trophies
Send your Topaz Dragons into league battles to earn valuable orbs and trophies. The combination of health-draining fire attacks and damaging lightning strikes makes Topaz a formidable opponent. Defensively, the Topaz Dragon’s dual elements protect a wider array of attacks.
Keep at least one male and female Topaz Dragon to enable cooperative breeding with friends. By lending your Topaz Dragons out, you’ll speed up breeding times for friends trying to acquire this rare Dragon. In return, you’ll gain gifts and breed Topaz faster yourself through co-op.
Completing Your Collection
