Gold Dragon Breeding Combination Guide

The world famous treasure hunter, Thatche, was finding some of his spoils disappearing at night; with no sign of thieves he decided to pretend sleep in order to find out what was causing his treasure to vanish. To Thatche’s surprise, he witnessed a massive golden dragon swoop in and fly off with as much as it could carry! The wizards found later that gold dragons steal because they sleep on piles of gold for pillows.

    I read a couple different places that scortch and chrome worked best… Gonna try soon as my pollen is done!!

    • Anonymous says:

      Scorch and Chrome only “works best” because that’s what everyone is using to get the Ruby dragon right now.

      Please can someone help me get the EPI/ epic breeding island I think it wold really help me get some rarer ones if you pay me the gems for it I will gradually pay you back it wold really help me :) crazycat17

      • Caprica6 says:

        I have the epic breeding cave and it hasn’t helped one iota I am having a hard time creating all the gem dragons. Still don’t have the ruby and it took me like 30 tries last month to get the pearl and I only got one emerald dragon after trying all month that is with trying to speed up incubation and every other trick. So it is not guaranteed to work

        • Anonymous says:

          I just think it would be nice to have it cuz it is supposed to get the rarer ones + I can breed two at once :) crazycat17

          • Anonymous says:

            It does help being able to breed two at once. As for gem dragons, I had a real hard time getting emerald and pearl but got ruby first try, it really does just happen randomly.

        • Anonymous says:

          Me too no emeral one pearl

          • Anonymous says:

            Same here, I have the EPI and it has made no difference in getting the rarer, harder dragons. There are times when I have more luck in the normal breeding cave. The only thing the EPI is good for is the opportunity of breeding 2 pairs at once which doubles your chances of getting what you are trying for.

      Persistence is key I have 2 emerald, 4 pearl, and so far 2 rubys.

    For those ppl that are worried that they got a rainbow dragon from 48 hrs, it is ony possible if you breed two hybrid dragons. So if you breed two hybrids, it could be rainbow or gold.

  73. Leanne Wiles says:

    I've gotten multiple firework dragons, a rainbow dragon and now have a ruby dragon on the way due to scotch+chrome.

  74. Scarlet says:

    I would reccomend doing scorch+chrome because you can also get a ruby dragon but you will most likely end up with something with metal, which u can sell for a good price. I haven’t gotten a gold dragon yet though.

  75. TurtleRun says:

    Got a second ruby dragon while trying for gold dragon 

  76. alexisleann says:

    How do you add friends ive been playing this game for a yr and have no friends. I even bought the gem tree hoping to attract friends. But I must be doing something wrong?

  77. dmac0209 says:

    Alexis, you have to send requests to people to become friends. When you read thru the posts above, you’ll see many people give their Game Center ID (example: mine is dmac0209). Go to the Game Center on your phone. When you open it, you’ll see at the bottom of your screen 4 choices. The “friends” button is how you send friend requests to others. The last button “Requests” is people sending a friend request to you. Choose the “friends” button. Then, at the top left corner, click the “+”. Then you enter the email address or Game Center ID and hit “Send”. That’s how you send friend requests :)

  89. Heitshusen30 says:

    Tried for ruby and gold wit chrome and scorch and finally got a ruby after tens of fireworks. However as stated before in here the flower with copper really does work for gold. Tried a few of the combos that people posted and this one worked for me first try. So it’s worth a shot but otherwise just try the dif combos everyone has been saying.

    I’ve been trying for almost two weeks, have bread at least a hundred times and no gold. This is BS. I think Backflip is just using this one to see which users will buy gems to get one.

      Even if that were so, backflip deserves the money.

  113. Anonymous says:

    I got gold and it took me at least ten tries. At first i got firework after fire work but then i just recently got gold. you jsut need to be patient. but i dont know if this would help but i did it on the epic breeding island. And within a couple of days i was able to get all the ones that everyone here is complaining about. And at most it took between 5 to 10 days. but i was also using both the epic breeding island and the breeding cave.
