The Majestic Silver Dragon
The Silver Dragon is one of the most valued dragons in the world of DragonVale. With its beautiful metallic blue scales and mysteriously alluring aura, the Silver Dragon commands attention and respect wherever it goes. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll break down everything you need to know about breeding, housing, and caring for this magnificent dragon.
Breeding the Silver Dragon
The Silver Dragon is an epic dragon that can only be bred using two rare dragons. Here are the breeding requirements:
- Earth + Rain + Treasure (Epic) – This is the standard breeding combination for the Silver Dragon. It has a very low chance of success.
- Earth + Rain + 30% Epic Egg (Epic) – Using an Epic breeding cave or habitat with the base combo above increases the odds.
- Any rare dragon combo with an active Silver trait (Epic) – During events when the Silver trait is available, using any two rare dragons that both have the Silver trait activated will breed a Silver.
Here are some tips for successfully breeding a Silver Dragon:
- Breed during boosts when possible for increased odds. Make use of Breeding Cave boosts, Breeding Island boosts and limited time Breeding events.
- Stock up on multiples of the breeding dragons to breed in overlapping cycles for maximum chances each day.
- Consider upgrading your Breeding Cave or habitats to higher levels for higher odds. Epic dragons are always a challenge but the upgraded facilities can help.
- Be patient! Silver dragons have an extremely low successful breed rate. It may take many attempts even with boosts active. Don’t get discouraged!
Housing the Silver Dragon
Once you’ve successfully bred a Silver Dragon, you’ll want to provide it with an appropriate habitat. Here are some housing recommendations:
- Epic habitats (L16+) – Naturally, the higher level Epic habitats will work best as they accommodate epic dragons. However, any Epic habitat can house a Silver.
- Moon or Olympus habitats (L10+) – These themed habitats offer a fitting aesthetic for the celestial Silver dragon and boost traits.
- Large habitats like the Rainbow or Aurora (L10+) – The large open space allows the magnificent Silver dragon to spread its wings.
- Decorations that enhance traits are ideal – Trait-boosting decorations like the Crystal Flower, full Moon items or eligible Olympus Decor help the Silver perform at its best.
- Consider the Sun or Moonbeams as a decoration – These appealing celestial items suit the aesthetic and traits of the Silver.
- Place in its own habitat – As an epic dragon, the Silver deserves its own spacious home to display its beauty and rare status.
Caring for the Silver Dragon
To keep your Silver Dragon happy and healthy, provide the following care:
- Feed 2x daily for optimal feeding – Epics have high feeding requirements.
- Collect silver and gems regularly from its habitat – These are used for breeding and selling.
- Level up for increased abilities – Maxing out at L20 makes the Silver a powerful dragon.
- Enhance its traits for extra benefits – Focus on boosting the Dragon, Rain, Earth or Sun trait.
- Socialize daily for friendship – An active social life benefits all dragons.
- Consider level boosts occasionally – Treats, berries and habitats can provide temporary levels boosts.
- Breed offspring to expand your Silver family – Their trait combinations will make new dragons.
