Certain dragons can only be obtained by transforming existing dragons in your park. To summon one of these dragons, you'll need to obtain the unique decorations required for the desired dragon.
How to Evolve a Dragon
If you've collected the required decorations, and have the necessary base dragon in your park, you can evolve that dragon using the steps below. The base dragon that you need to evolve can be found in the in-game breeding hints, accessed by tapping on a breeding area, then tapping the "breeding hints" icon.
- Make sure you have the necessary decorations placed in your park and not in your gifts menu
- Locate the dragon you wish to evolve and tap on it
- Tap the "Evolve" icon at the bottom of the dragon's info card
- In the pop up menu, tap to select the type of dragon you wish to evolve to, then tap the confirm button
- Tap the "Evolve" button to transform your dragon. Please note that evolving a dragon will cost 1000 Candy.
It is important to note that when you transform one of your dragons it will evolve into a new dragon, and the original dragon will no longer be available in your park. Please keep this in mind if you only have one of the dragons you wish to evolve.
The Vale has become a dangerous place and Noel dePlante will need the protection of dragons that you breed and donate. Some requests will ask for a specific dragon, and others will simply require any dragon with the requested element.
Please note: Dragons that you donate to the Airship of Ghouls will not be returned and you can only donate newly-hatched dragons.
To fill a donation:
- Tap on the Airship of Ghouls or the Bizarre Merchant
- Tap the "Donation" icon at the bottom of the screen
- Tap a space to view the request and reward for completing that space
- Breed the required dragon, then tap the "Donate" icon after hatching the new dragon
- If you aren't able to breed a requested dragon, you can use Gems to fill the request instead
You will earn Candy for each donation request you fill. Completing an entire line of requests will provide even more Candy, and filling the entire donation request will earn you the most Candy. You can complete up to 5 donation cards per day.
Buying More Plays
After you use your last available play at the Misadventure Tent, you will have the option to purchase an additional play for 5 Gems. Purchasing an additional play is entirely optional and you will still receive your 5 free plays every 12 hours as usual.
Sometimes mini-games contain a Golden Chest that will provide special rewards. You'll always have a small chance to find a Golden Chest when playing games, but buying an additional play gives a 100% chance of a Golden Chest appearing on your next turn. Please note that this only guarantees that the chest will appear, and not that you will win the chest.
Pit of Despair
Similar to cooperative breeding, you can team up with friends’ dragons to compete in challenges and win Candy!
- Challenges will last six hours each
- Choose the best dragons for the challenge by matching your dragon's elements to the elements of the current challenge
The Aberration Station rewards you for each day you play during Into the Dark.
Check in each day for magical rewards and special surprises! Earn free Candy and even dragons!
If you miss a day, don’t worry, you can spend a few gems to catch up. You cannot collect a day’s reward in advance.
You only have to login to DragonVale each day to be eligible for the reward. If you login, but forget to visit the Aberration Station, your reward will still be available to collect the next time you visit.
