At each stage of growth, there are several actions that may be performed on an egg, hatchling, or dragon. To access a creature’s actions, click on “Dragons” from the top menu, then click on the link labeled “Actions” next to the creature you want to perform an action on.
Abandoning an egg or hatchling will cause it to be sent to the abandoned area, where others can pick it up. This action is not always successful; hatchlings may choose not to stay by the cave and may follow you back.
Breeding allows you to obtain more eggs. When you breed a dragon, you will be presented with a list of eligable dragons of the opposite gender. Upon choosing a partner, you will be presented with the results of the breeding attempt. Breeding can produce up to four eggs, but you are only allowed to keep one from each batch. The other eggs that you decide not to keep will be abandoned automatically.
This action enables you to customize your dragons with a personal description. Descriptions must adhere to the description guidelines and must be approved by a site moderator before they can be seen by others. If your dragon’s description is approved, it will appear at the bottom of its info page.
The Freeze action allows you to prevent a hatchling from becoming an adult. A frozen hatchling will cease to accumulate views, unique views, and clicks.
Hiding an egg or hatchling will prevent others from viewing it and thus prevent it from accumulating views, unique views, and clicks. The only action available to hidden eggs and hatchlings is “unhide.” Eggs and hatchlings may still die while hidden.
Killing an egg, hatchling, or adult will cause it to die and eventually be removed from your scroll. This action is not always successful and hatchlings or adults may resist your attempts to kill them.
Naming a hatchling or dragon is one of the ways through which you can personalize your dragons. Each name is unique; no two dragons can have the same name. Names are non permanent; once named, a dragon’s name can be changed or removed. Names can only contain letters, numbers, spaces, apostrophes, and dashes.
Releasing a hatchling or dragon removes it from your scroll without killing it. Dragons that have been released have no owner and cannot be picked up by another user; released dragons become "wild" and can be seen in the wilderness.
The revive action has a small chance of bringing a dead dragon back to life. If it fails, then the dragon is permanently dead.
Some breeds of dragons have special abilities. These abilities can be used by living adults from their actions page and may interact with any dragons, eggs or hatchlings you may have.
The earthquake action has a chance of forcing your eggs to hatch earlier than they normally would. However, there is also a risk that some of your eggs may die in the process.
Fertility allows you to increase the chance that a certain dragon will breed successfully. To use it, click the action, then select one of your dragons. The next time that selected dragon breeds (regardless of mate), its chance of producing an egg will be increased. If used on both dragons in a pairing, the effect will only be applied once, but both dragons will “use” their extra fertility.
Incubating an egg removes one day from its timer, enabling it to hatch faster.
This action enables you to increase the chance of an egg being the same gender as the dragon that uses this action. This allows you to essentially choose which gender you would like an egg to be.
