Christmas multiclutch

Example of a Holiday multi-clutch

Breeding is an action in Dragon Cave that involves two fully grown dragons of opposite gender. Breeding, if successful, produces an egg of either parent, or in specific cases, a new dragon entirely, known as a hybrid. In the past, breeding could produce multi-clutches up to four eggs, but this is now restricted to holiday dragons. Breeding has a cooldown of 7 days.

The success of breeding depends on several factors, the primary being rarity of the dragons in question. Rare dragons are far less likely to produce an egg, though pairing two rares versus one rare and one common has an equal chance of producing. In some cases the pair may refuse, producing no egg and disallowing the pairing of those two dragons in the future.

Bred eggs, unlike the eggs taken from the biomes, can be abandoned immediately, cutting out on the wait time of 5 hours. If an egg is bred but the user has surpassed their egg limit, the egg is auto-abandoned.

BSAs affecting breeding

Fertility, a BSA (Breed Specific Action) belonging to Purple Dragons, can increase the chances of successfully breeding an egg. It has a cooldown of 14 days.

Message received and explanation

"The dragons refuse to even go near each other."

This means that the two dragons you tried to breed will never breed with each other. It can happen between dragons of any rarity. Breeding Holiday x Holiday or Retired x Holiday any time besides at least one of the Holiday's breeding season will result in a refusal. (Ex: Christmas x Halloween during the Valentine's breeding season, Frill x Valentine at anytime besides the Valentine's breeding season)

Currently, once a pair of dragons has refused, the refused partner is moved to the bottom of the list of possible mates and is not available to attempt breeding in the future.

"The dragons don't really show much interest in each other."

This means that the two dragons don't want to breed at the time but are capable of doing so in a future attempt. Once a pair of dragons had no interest, the partner is moved to the top of the list of possible mates.

"You attempt to breed the two dragons, but no egg is produced."

This means that the dragons bred successfully but no egg was produced. Once a pair of dragons bred no eggs, the partner is moved to the top of the list of possible mates.


"The dragons breed and produce an egg."

This means they have successfully produced an egg. Once a pair of dragons bred an egg, the partner is moved to the top of the list of possible mates.
