DragonVale: Emerald Dragon


The emerald dragon in DragonVale is the very first dragon that has to ability to generate gems for DragonVale players. This was not always the case, players normally have the ability to gain gems from a few sources such as gifts, Colosseum, or even purchasing their gems. The release of the emerald dragon for DragonVale players chances that because now players can generate gems through having gemstone dragons such as the emerald dragon.

The emerald dragon requires you to be at least level 11 and make sure you have the gemstone habitat if you haven’t gotten one yet because having a emerald dragon without the habitat won’t be much help. You can expect a 31 hours breeding time or you can purchase the emerald dragon for 1,500Gem to have him immediately. You do however gain 100,000 experience from obtaining him which will definitely help boost your levels.

“Small but powerful, the emerald dragon magically generates Gems… making it, and other gemstone dragons, the most sought after dragons in all the land. Emerald dragons originate from the crystal forests hidden within the Sedna Mountains. Because they’re imbued with a special magic from the Shimmering Isles, these dragons can NOT breed with other dragons.” Emerald Dragon Game Description

      Did she try crystal and lichen? That’s the only way to get it. You have to keep trying hard enough til you get it. I used a lvl 6 crystal and lvl 4 lichen. It works after a bunch of trys.

    • Xen
