Leonine Dragon In Dragonvale

The Complete Guide to Leonine Dragons in Dragonvale

The Leonine Dragon is one of the rarest and most challenging breeds to obtain in Dragonvale. With a fierce lion appearance and solar flames, this unusual hybrid dragon combines fire, light, and earth elements.

This in-depth guide will cover everything you need to know about Leonine Dragons including breeding combinations, habitats, tips and strategies, and answers to frequently asked questions.

Overview and Facts on the Leonine Dragon

The Leonine Dragon made its debut during the Beast of the Mountain event in 2021. Here are some key facts about this unique breed:

  • Requires a triple fire, light, and earth elemental combination
  • Has a very low chance of breeding, around 1% or less
  • Features a bright golden lion motif with a lush mane
  • Releases animated solar plasma flames when defending
  • Makes loud roaring sounds occasionally
  • Has long incubation times over 30 hours
  • Can only reside in certain large habitats

As a limited dragon, Leonine is only available to breed and obtain during certain times of the year, making it very elusive. Its hybrid nature and three required elements also makes breeding difficult.

But the Leonine’s regal lion appearance makes it a worthy addition for any rare dragon collector.

How to Breed the Leonine Dragon

Leonine Dragons can only be acquired through breeding during limited windows. To breed Leonine, you’ll need dragons with a combined fire, earth, and light element at minimum.

Leonine Dragon Breeding Guide

Try these breeding pair combinations for a chance at the Leonine Dragon:

Dragon 1 Dragon 2 Chance of Leonine
Sun Quake 1%
Heat Sonic 1%
Ash Moss 1%
Lichen Sol 1%

Primary Breeding Options

The most direct combinations are:

  • Fire Dragon + Light Dragon + Earth Dragon
  • Fire/Light Hybrid + Earth Dragon
  • Fire/Earth Hybrid + Light Dragon
  • Light/Earth Hybrid + Fire Dragon

For example:

  • Sun Dragon + Earth Dragon = Small chance of Leonine Dragon
  • Heat Dragon + Lightning Dragon = Small chance of Leonine Dragon

Because three elements are required, the breeding odds are extremely low even during breeding events. Expect to try many times before success.

How to Obtain the Leonine Dragon

Aside from breeding Leonine dragons yourself, there are a couple other options to obtain this elusive hybrid:

Buy the Dragon

You can instantly purchase the Leonine Dragon by spending 2,000 gems. Buying lets you skip the breeding hassle, but can be very costly in gems.

Receive as a Reward

On rare occasions, Dragonvale gives out free Leonine Dragons to all players for a limited time. Keep an eye out during events for potential free gifts.

Trading with Friends

Trading allows you to swap dragons with friends. If they have extra Leonine Dragons from past events, you can trade without breeding your own.

Habitats and Placement for Leonine Dragons

Leonine Dragons are one of the largest breeds in the game. As a result, they can only comfortably reside in a select few giant habitats:

Overgrown Island

This huge island environment is the ideal spot for your Leonine Dragon with plenty of open space.

  • Costs 75,000,000 coins
  • Provides space for four dragons
  • 60 hours build time

Gargantuan Island

Another acceptable habitat for Leonine Dragons if you have no spare Overgrown Islands.
