Golden Wyverns were released on the 23rd of January 2012 alongside the Royal Blue Dragons to celebrate the Chinese New Year and also the beginning of the "Year of the Dragon". Before there were any adults, forum users called them "shimmers".

Golden Wyverns are classed as rare. They can be found in the Alpine biome. Their eggs sometimes get mixed up with those of the gold prize dragons.

When sorting alphabetically, they sort as Gwyvern, which is why they are the last of the "G" dragons.

Fun Fact: Golden Wyvern hatchlings were the only hatchlings to dress up for the Halloween 2012 Dragon Dress Up event.

Official Dragon Description


"This egg shimmers like gold."


"Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. Its scales give off a beautiful golden gleam."

Mature Hatchling

"Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. Its scales give off a beautiful golden gleam. And look! It's grown its wings! It must be close to maturing."


"Golden Wyverns are known for their beautiful metallic scales and rumored magical abilities. Living high in the mountains, these dragons do not believe in killing for sport or pleasure. They will hunt only when hungry and defend themselves when provoked, but will avoid killing to the best of their abilities. Golden Wyverns often mingle with other dragons of similar color and take pride in their shimmering hide."

Additional Information

Verridith mentioned on the forum that:

Golden Wyverns are incredibly proud. They'll do anything to protect their families, though as they are also highly intelligent, many try to avoid confrontation and find diplomatic solutions to problems. However, they aren't above chasing out another dragon who means to be a threat! They are quite skilled in the magic of illusion and appearance, not so much with the elements. They can also change one substance into another, like alchemy.
