The goal of this site is to learn how to breed dragons: starting with the
dragon egg to the fully grown-up dragon
(height of about 4 meters -- 12 feet -- and weight of about 500 kg -- about 1000 pounds -- or more!).
A breeder has a
score based on the number of
galleons (the sorcerer currency unit) and on the total weight of all
his born dragons (as well as the sum of all his dragons skills beginning at
The simulation (i.e. all the miscellaneous computation about heat, thirst, hunger, ...) is done
once per hour only; hence, don't be surprise if it takes some time for our pumpkins, dragons, ...
With only a few minutes a day on this site, you will keep your dragons healthy and you will
make progress in your dragon breeding skills!

Dragons hatch from an egg: exactly like chickens!
For sure, the dragon egg is much bigger; moreover, the mother dragon
heat the egg by spitting gentle how flames on it.
As you probably don't spit flames (I hope!), you need a different method
to heat the egg: place the egg in a cauldron and put the cauldron in
a burning fire. The quantity of heat before hatching is between 4,000 and
In order to ensure a better heat tranfer between the fire and the egg, the
egg must be placed in the water (like in your kitchen). But, water
evaporates... and you need to refill the cauldron every hour or so
by pouring waterin it.
Magical wood logs are mandatory to heat the cauldron. Each log produces 200 kcal
over one hour: exactly the time required to burn completely. If you do the math,
you need between 20 and 30 hours (and the same number of logs of course) to give
enough heat to the egg (of course assuming that there is always enough water to
maximize the heat transfer).
As they are magic, you need to go to the Diagon Alley (1 galleon per log).
The shipping direct to your cellar will be done by the shops.
Do not forget to go downstiar in your cellar to bring back the log to your fire!
The beauty with magical logs is that once a log is completely burned, another one
from the stack of logs will fly directly in the fire!
Hagrid, himself, will give you the first dragon egg with some money (50
galleons) to take care of it. But, until further notice, your fire is only large enough
to boil a single egg!If you want to breed further dragons, you'll need
to buy other eggs in the Diagon Alley (or at the
Gringotts Stock Exchange) for a price of 10
galleons. But, until further notice, your fire is only large enough
to boil a single egg!
Dragon babies hatch after about 2 days of heathing, they have a weight of
1 to 3 kg (2 to 6 pounds) for a height of 20 to 30 cm (about 1"). Hagrid
will congratulate you by giving you 30 galleons
after the hatching.
Once hatched, the dragons will grow very very fast (about 1% per hour, this
makes 26% a day -- don't agree? make the math ;-)!
A dragon becomes adult once he is 1.5 meter tall (5");
this will require between 7 and 9 days of continuous growth -- assuming a well fed and well cared
of dragon of course). Once they are adults, they change their physical look and
are able to reproduce.
But their growth does not stop! They continue to grow until more than 4 meters (about 12")
and to get more weight until more than 500 kg (1000 pounds)... The maximum
weight is reached after 11 to 12 days and the
maximum size is reached after 11 to 13 days. Each
dragon has a maximum size different than the others.
Every dragon has a set of parameters:
In some cases, you will see two buttons:
Location, this is the place where he is.
Health, varies from 0 (very bad) to 100% (fully healthy).
In order to grow, a dragon must have at least 50% in health. When a dragon has
nothing to drink or to eat (empty stomach, 10% or less), his health goes down. When
everything is going fine, he heals automatically (1% per hour).
Hunger, varies from 0 (empty stomach) to 100% (completely filled!).
A dragon east either pumpkins (10 are required to completely fill the stomach
of a grown up dragon or 2.5 pumpkins for a young dragon) from your
field or he goes hunting in the Forbidden
Forest (10 hours of hunting are enough to fill his stomach). When his
stomach is mostly empty (20%), the dragon starts to loose weight. Else,
he always grows in weight and in size.
Drink, Drink, extremely similar to food.
On the other hand, it is enough to move its dragon with the
Magic Lake so that it drinks to satiety (and it is free in more!).
Nervosity, goes from 0% (extremely calm) to 100% (very irritated).
An irritated dragon
can become dangerous even for its Master. He can then cause damage
that will need repair. The concentration necessary to hunting increases slightly its
nervousness (moreover an irritated dragon hunts less!).
On the other hand, the home or the pumpkin field
calm a dragon completely
in 20 hours. Each time you deal with dragon, that calms it
Moral, goes from 0% (deep depression) to 100% (in full form).
A dragon in depression (less than 20%) does not grow any more…
A few hours with the pupils of Hogwarts Castle,
the moral of all the dragons goes up!
Finally, each time you deal with dragon, its moral goes up a little.
Flame Tank, of course, the flames are produced
by a kind of gas produced by a special gland of the dragon.
When the tank of this fuel is empty 0%, the dragon cannot
hunt any more. It takes approximately 20 hours to fill the tank with fuel.
Sex, the dragons are like hens and the cocks!
One needs a male dragon and a dragon female to make an egg.
Avatar, it is in fact the photograph of your dragon!
The avatar dimension depends on the size and on the weight of your dragon,
babies are much smaller than 7adult dragons.
to display the family tree of one of your dragons and
to display all the descendants of one of your dragons.
You will notice quickly that each dragon has a photograph (actually a drawing).
This drawing is called an avatar.
By default, various avatars are automatically associated your dragons according to their age and their sex.
It is also possible to change the avatar of your dragons by uploading on the server a drawing of yours.
CAUTION: this drawing must be done by yourself or you must have the
authorization of the author to use an avatar made by another person.
Any violation of this rule can lead to the exclusion of the player from this site.
How to have its avatar?
display the page of your dragon by clicking on this dragon;
click on the button
change avatar; a list of several avatars is displayed, you have then the choice between:
use one of these avatars by clicking on
Utiliser; you can also use a drawing or a picture which is on your computer
(maximum file size 40000 bytes, idealy 250 x 250 pixels (maximum 600 pixels) with a transparent background)
by clicking on
Browse... (the exact name of the button depends on your browser),
then find and select the file on your computer, then click on the button Télécharger It is really unfriendly to copy other players' avatars without their agreement...
Accepted file formats are GIF, PNG, JPEG the preferred ones, else
BMP, SWF et TIFF.
Once your dragon is born it is possible to move it in various places:
house, field of pumpkins, Forbidden Forest,…
In order to do so, you have to:
Then, you just have to click on the final destination which appears on the row click on
Mes Dragons to display all your dragons click on the dragon you want to move
alternatively, click on the top right on the dragon to be moved
At home, your dragons rest and are calmed. Alas, the height
of the door of your house limits to 2 meters
the size of the dragons which can enter there.
To reach your cellar or your mangers,
it is necessary to pass by the house.
Your house has a cellar. This is the place where you can stock
any number of pumpkins, eggs, seeds, ...
To go in your cellar,
it is first necessary to go in your house (by selecting the
Home in the menu on the left hand pane), then, to choose to go down in the cellar
fill the cellar, it is necessary for example to go in your field
and to collect pumpkins (to even open a pumpkin to collect 20 seeds out of them).
Or to go to buy goods with the Diagon Alley shop or the
Gringotts Stock Exchange.
To empty the cellar, it is necessary to go first in the house and
to go down in the cellar. You will have then the choice tto sell at a
fixed price with a merchant of the Diagon Alley (in general at a not very good
price) or , to sell with the Gringotts Stock Exchange
or to sell at the Gringotts Stock Exchange
move pumpkins in your field so that they are eaten by your dear dragons
sow seeds in your field in order to obtain ripe pumpkins
bring some magic logs upstairs for your fire
bring one egg upstairs to place it in your cauldron
It is the place where all the stockbreeders of dragons can go to buy various
things: magic logs, seeds of pumpkins, egg of dragon,…
The price is always fixed and in general much expensive
than on the Gringotts Stock Exchange. Big advantage of the Diagon Alley, the purchase
is immediate and your order is delivered by centaur express within seconds
in your cellar. The transport charges are the expenses of the merchant.
Gringotts Stock Exchange
The Stock Exchange is a system similar to Wall Street or
the London Stock Exchange or… (a little in the e-bay kind).
I.e. you can propose to all the other players to buy from you
or to be sold something at a price chosen by you. Reciprocally,
you can sell or buy something at the price fixed by another player.
Whether you are the seller or buyer, the Gringotts Stock Exchange
should be more profitable for you. The only disadvantage is sometimes
that it is necessary to wait a few hours (even days!) until another
breeder is interested by your proposal. In the event of transaction
(i.e. when another stockbreeder agrees on the price which you proposed),
you will be warned by an owl-mail.
To use the Stock Exchange you can either place a new order
(it is you the applicant) or to carry out an existing order
placed by another stockbreeder.
Every order is:
The execution of an existing order can be done entirely (i.e. the total quantity
is bought or sold) or partially..
buy order (column of right-hand side): the applicant commits
himself buying an item at a price determined by him (with a maximum quantity) or a
sale order (left-hand column): the applicant commits himself
selling an item at a price determined by him (with a maximum quantity) Reserved Quantity for Pending Orders
When you place a buying order, part of your gallions are reserved for this
order: you thus do not have access to them. The amount reserved out of Stock Exchange
appears after the amount of your account.
When you place a sale order, part of your goods are reserved
for this order: you cannot thus use them anymore.
It is also possible to cancel a sell or a buy order, in order to cancel
an order, go to the table of the various proposals (by pretending to do a buy
or a sell) and your pending orders can then be cancelled.
In order not to not charge the server too much, you are limited to 1
open orders (i.e. which is not sold or is not bought entirely) of buy or sell per type of good.
When one of your orders is completely carried out, you receive 2
points of experiencet then (once every 6 hours maximum).
Display Stock Quotes
It is also possible to display all stock quotes on a single page.
From this table, you can consult a graph of the historical quotes over one week,
one month or a year as well as decide to sell or buy goods.
Note: in order to protect you from the wrong clicks (or decisions!),
it is impossible to sell at a loss (i.e. to sell a good at a lower
price than you bought it). As in reality, the value of your goods
decreases with time (like a 5 year old car is worth less than a new car).
This is called depreciation: the value of your goods decreases by 20% each night.
From time to time, the server will prevent you from carrying out an
existing order. Indeed, several months ago, a stockbreeder (a little cheater one!)
found a means of transferring from the money between several of his usernames
(another cheating!) in order to become richest...
This system is called a circle transaction, like in:
The net result is that for each circle transaction Bob gives i90 gallions in Ann...
and money transfer are forbidden on this site. a stockbreeder, Ann, buys a super-log from another stockbreeder, Bob, for 10 galleons;
Bob buys from Ann the very same super-log for 100 galleons;
and again and again...
There are variations of this system and they all are blocked by the server.
This is applicable only if the two transactions are done between the two same stockbreeders.
How to Get more Galleons?
This is of course the 1,000,000 galleons question!
The simplest way is to buy pumpkin seeds, to make them grow
and to resell the pumpkins (even pumpkin seeds). Also, Hagrid
will also congratulate you for the birth of each dragon by giving you a small
amount of money.
But, the ideal is to resell eggs laid by your
female dragons or
to even resell your dragons to countries
(in general in Transylvania) where the dragons were hunted
and exterminated by Moguls. This option is offered only for the large dragons.
The scores of the stockbreeders are computed each hour
by making the sum of the number of gallions plus twice
the weight and the sum of skills
(starting from level 3) of all the dragons of the stockbreeders.
That corresponds to the number of gallions that you could have by selling all your dragons.
Experience points are a measure of your experience :-) You gain some experience
Based on your experience points, your level is computed as follow:
your egg hatches: 10
your baby dragon becomes an adult: 10 you execute a transaction on the Stock Exchange: 2
every day where you connect with IPv4: 1
every day where you connect with IPv6 (the new generation of TCP/IP): 4
every day where you connect to the
The area of your pumpkin field is based on your level
(15 m from 3: level 1 (score and buy eggs);
from 10: level 2 (access to the Stock Exchange);
from 30: level 3 (several places in the Fordibben Forest, change of avatars, dragon skills, fight pits,
donations between breeders, lotery); from 100: level 4 (magic waters, culture of
several fields and fights); from 300: level 5 (multiple moves and
buy extra fields); from 1000: level 6 (multiple cauldron to heat several eggs simultaneously);
from 3000: level 7 (garderners to facilitate cultures);
from 10000: level 8 (dragon groups, genetics);
from 30000: level 9 ;
from 100000: level 10 ;
from 300000: level 11 ;
2 by level added on the base area).
Each farmer (heu breeder) has a single field of pumpkins. It may contain
a number of pumpkins (in the form of seeds or in the form of ripe pumpkins)
for all its dragons. The size of this field depends on your level.
The field is very useful: you can leave your dragons for several hours or even days:
he will never go hungry (as long as there are still pumpkins!), and he is going to rest.
The only problem is that there is no water, therefore, the dragons will thirst after 4 days ...
Managing your field is very important for your dragon
because he loves to eat pumpkin. Small dragons (under 10 kg) eat a pumpkin
to fill their stomachs by 40% (so they can no longer eat for 40 hours),
average dragons (over 10 kg) eat a pumpkin to fill their stomach by 20%
(so they can no longer eat for 20 hours), the largest dragons (over 100 kg)
eat a pumpkin to fill their stomachs 10% ... All dragons eat a pumpkin per hour.
Note: it is therefore not surprising if a dragon with an
almost full belly (for example 75% for a baby) does not eat a pumpkin immediately
and instead continues to let his stomach to empty ... We must wait until
the stomach is empty enough to absorb a whole pumpkin in order not to waste!
In addition, the pumpkins contains lots of calories and make your dragons
grow by 2% in each pumpkin eaten! (A bit like the various candies
and other sweets for humans - but a dragon with a lot of fat is interesting for selling).
In addition, you can sell your pumpkin to earn gallions either at the Stock Exchange or to the Diagon Alley merchands
(sale price 0 galleons).
If you do not have any pumpkins, you can also buy them.
Otherwise,you need to buy seeds (0.05 galleon per seed)
and to sow them, do not forget to water, and two days after,
your seeds will have grown and will be transformed into giant pumpkins!
Then, they can be transferred either in your cellar (in the form of
pumpkin seeds or - once opened, a pumpkin gives 20 pumpkin seeds) or
be eaten by your dragons.
Note: Once the seeds are sown, it is impossible to sow more
seeds until all seeds have turned into ripe pumpkins...
Note: There is a rumour that the choc-pumpkins exist.
They are chocolate pumpkins that are a delight for your dragons:
they will no longer be hungry nor thirsty, and their morale will return to 100%,
they will grow a little, even if they have reached their maximum weight.
In addition, a single choc-pumpkin is enough for all your dragons!
Alas, no breeder knows how to obtain these choc-pumpkins!
Breeders of level 5 and above can buy new fields (at a price of 10
galleons per m 2. Each of these fields will have a unique name.
The owner of these fields may give access rights to other breeders:
By clicking on
co-owner: the other player can buy extensions to the field and
do all actions described below;
cultivate: the other farmer (heu.. the other player) can cultivate
the field by sowing, watering, harvesting, ... and do all actions
dragons authorized: the other breeder can move his/her dragon
to this field. The dragons can then eat and reproduce themselves. The other
player can also do the action below;
guest: the other player can only visit the field, no dragons
allowed. , it is possible to change
the order of listing of the various fields to which you have access.
Simply click on the up or down arrows.
It is also possible to hide a field (eg because it is empty or
poorly maintained): Hidden Fields will no longer be shown
as a possible place of destination.
By clicking on the trash bin , you can
give up your access right on that field. This can not be undone
(unless you ask again to the owner a right of access).
If you were a co-owner and that you invested money in this field
in order to extend it, you will be refunded and the area
of the field will be reduced accordingly. If your dragons were
in the field, they will be automatically moved to the dragon sitting.
It is a place for all breeders (so that you can come across other dragons!).
A place with a little touch of magic which is primarily used by dragons
to quench rapidly: in a few seconds, their mouths swallow water as fast as
they spit fire! And they drink up to 20% of their thirst in an instant.
There is therefore no need to stay longer in most cases.
This is the second location common to all breeders. It is a place strictly prohibited for the Hogwarts students.
However, you can drive your dragon at the edge of the forest without any problem
Your dragon gets rid of pests and other evil creatures by spitting flames
(as long as its flame thank is not empty), which will fill its stomach.
However, hunting is
stressful, thus increasing its nervousness!
And its concentration in hunting decline ... So it eats less and less
with the time passing.
When a dragon has a good
morale (greater than 80%), and
if it spends a long time in the Forbidden Forst, sometimes, it will bring you some
The number of 'harvested' logs depends on its size and on the length of time
it spent in the Forest.
It is also a place for all breeders. With a little luck,
you can cross your heroes: Harry, Ron and Hermione!
But your dragons love to go to Hogwarts to boost their morale!
This is the daycare for dragons (both babies and adults).
You can leave your dragons for one or more days, they will have neither
hunger nor thirst, but on the other hand they do not grow and grow.
To put a dragon on the Dragon Sitting, simply move it there.
The price of the Dragon Sitting is 0.01 galleon(s)/night/dragon.
The weather conditions change from day to day!
They follow the seasons in the Northern hemisphere.
Each weather condition has an impact on crops (growth rate,
moisture levels) and, in some cases, on your dragons (flame consumption, moral, ...).

As you know, Hogwarts students receive their mail by express owl ...
As this site is on the Internet, it is possible to send electronic
messages called owl-mail. The maximum size is 2000 characters.
Recipients must obviously be another dragon breeder
(you must use the username/nickname). You can learn about other
nicknames by looking at the best scores (lower left),
or by clicking connected (on the top),
or by crossing other breeders at Hogwarts,
in the Forbidden Forest or at the Magical Lake.
It is also possible to use an address book
( a notebook appears).
To avoid the problem of spam, you can send up to 12 owl-mails per hour.
Black List of Spammers
If you are tired of receiving owl-mails from certain other farmers
(or even from Hagrid or the Gringotts ...), you can build your
personal blacklist. This list contains the name of all players
from which you do not want to receive owl-mails...
The herders on your blacklist will see no difference, but their owl-mail will never
be delivered to you.
The Breeders' Chat Room
There is a chatroom among breeders. To start, just click on chat in the top frame.
Warning: the chat will open another window by using the technique of pop-up windows.
Some browsers are now configured to prevent these windows (because it is a technique
Generally, there are few players in the chatroom, it is advised to use chat options
to be notified when a user connects.
Currently, the chatroom is shared among all players including
When you see , you can click on it and this will open a
bulletin board (a long lasting chatroom) where you can write message by clicking on the
Write button. All players with the same language as yours will be able to see
It is the Gazette of breeders!
You can see the last two news by selecting News from the menu in the top frame.
When a new has been published since your last connection, it will appear as soon as you connect.
To be able to identify you, the server needs to know your user name and a password.
On first use, you must register: it is free and it takes a few seconds:
enter a username, a password and a valid email address (optional: your first and last name).
An validation e-mail is then sent, it contains a web address that you must visit in order
to activate your nickname. And voila ;-)
If you forget your password or your nickname, it is possible to have them
sent by email to your email address when identifying via the
E-mail reminders (for example, if your dragons are dying of hunger)
will be sent to you after a few days without connection.
This will be the one and only email sent if you do not reconnect anymore.
Your username and your dragons will be kept active for several months
without a connection to the web site, but their health will suffer from your lack of care.
Your profile includes a set of options
and parameters related to you. The set includes:
For most of the above parameters, you can change them as often as you want. You simply
need to click on your birthdate (you will then receive a surprise gift);
godparent; whether the other players may contact you by email (your email will NEVER be displayed on this web site);
your username on instant messaging system like Yahoo, AIM, ICQ, Skype ou MSN;
whether you used Facebook Dragon Ranch application;
My Profile (in the top frame).
You can then display those parameters. If you want to modify them,
it is mandatory to enter again your current password! This is for your security.
Note: some parameters can only be changed once!
This is on the same page, My Profile, that you can click on the button
if you want to unregister from this web site.
Game Godparent (Sponsor)
All breeders level less than or equal to 4 can choose a game
godfather or godmother. It is a breeder of at least 4 levels
more than you who agrees to help you by offering advice and / or
Each breeder sponsor can have a maximum of 8 godchildren.
For fairness, it is recommended to send an owl-mail to your potential godparent
before you name your godparent. Once the choice of yourgodparent made (by changing
your profile), it is no longer possible to change again. So, choose well!
Note: the choice of a sponsor is not mandatory. Many breeders never had a godparent.
Once you reach level 5, you are experimented enough and you are loosing your godparent
automagically. Your previous godparent will then be able sponsor another breeder
(just like you do, because you just became a super breeder!).
In the list of connected players, the status of sponsorship appears:
: this breeder has already a goodparent;
: this breeder does not have any godparent;
: this breeder is too experimented to have a godparent.
