Actions

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.

Abandon

Can be performed on: Eggs, unnamed hatchlings

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.

Breed

Can be performed on: Most breeds of adults
Usage Limitations: Can be used once per week per pair of dragons.

Breeding allows you to obtain more eggs. When you breed a dragon, you will be presented with a list of eligible dragons of the opposite gender. Upon choosing a partner, you will be presented with the results of the breeding attempt. There can be several outcomes:

  • “The dragons refuse to even go near each other.”—This pairing of dragons is incompatible and will never breed successfully.
  • “The dragons don’t really show much interest in each other.”—The dragons are compatible, but are not a very good pairing. Note that there is a “spectrum” of compatibility; most pairings will occasionally show no interest, but it might occur more frequently for some pairs than others.
  • “You attempt to breed the two dragons, but no egg is produced.”—The breeding was not successful. You should try again after seven days.
  • “The two dragons breed to produce an egg.”—Success!
  • “The two dragons breed to produce several eggs.”—Breeding may sometimes 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.

Describe

Can be performed on: Frozen hatchlings, adults.

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.

Freeze

Can be performed on: Unfrozen hatchlings.
Usage Limitations: Can be performed (10 + 2 per trophy level) times per 2 weeks.

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.

Hide

Can be performed on: Eggs, unfrozen hatchlings.

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.

Kill

Can be performed on: Living eggs, hatchlings, and adults.
Usage Limitations: Can be performed 5 times every two weeks.

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.

Name

Can be performed on: Hatchlings, adults.

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.

Release

Can be performed on: Frozen hatchlings, adults.

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.

Revive

Can be performed on: Dead hatchlings, dead adults.
Usage Limitations: Can be performed once per dragon.

The revive action has a small chance of bringing a dead dragon back to life. If it fails, then the dragon is permanently dead.

Breed-Specific Actions

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.

Earthquake

Can be performed on: All eggs
Usage Limitations: Can be performed once per week per dragon.

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.

Expunge

Can be performed on: Zombies
Usage Limitations: Can be performed once per 31 days per dragon.

Expunge permanently removes a zombie from your account. The removal is immediate.

Fertility

Can be performed on: Breedable adults
Usage Limitations: Can be performed once per two weeks per dragon.

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.

Incubate

Can be performed on: Eggs with over 3 days left
Usage Limitations: Once per two weeks per dragon, each egg can only be incubated once.
Wears off after abandonment or teleporting.

Incubating an egg removes one day from its timer, enabling it to hatch faster.

Influence

Can be performed on: Eggs with over 3 days left
Usage Limitations: Once per week per dragon, each egg can only be influenced once.
Wears off after abandonment or teleporting.

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.

Stun

Can be performed on: Hatchlings with over 1 day left
Usage Limitations: Can be performed once per two weeks per dragon.

Stun adds an extra day to the timer of a hatchling, while also preventing it from receiving views for two days. While unable to receive views, a hatchling cannot reach adulthood.

Teleport

Can be performed on: Eggs and unfrozen hatchlings
Usage Limitations: Once per two days per dragon.

Teleporting allows you to send eggs and hatchlings to other users. You can create one-way transfers and two-way trades.
