Try playing DragonVale. They even give you as a hint to good breeding that dragons breed better if they are over 11, (in that game, most of my dragons are level 16). But back when I started playing, DS told us also that to get better results, breed older dragons (6 or 7 at least).
Not I haven’t been on this website very long & that was what your audience thought was you playing longer than me, so you knew more than me. All I know is what I have gained through my experience. I don’t know if you meant that you had played as long as me or you hadn’t, but I know what I know & on DS I’m a pretty successful breeder.
Hi, what is your opinion on breeding? I would never breed a level 4 dragon. I go with dragons that are least a 6 or 7, but prefer Epics to breed with. Actually, considering everything, it probably doesn’t matter that much as long as they are adolescent to adult dragons. It just seems I have better outcomes with older dragons. Also, on another dragon game I play, if you want a good outcome, you would use a dragon at least level 11. They even tell you that under their help section in the game.
For me personally, from what I've seen in the game data and what others and myself have experienced throughout the years, the levels of the dragons appear to have no affect in this game. Other games will operate differently, especially if the game developers instruct you to do so there. But Storm8 hasn't instructed us to use older dragons for better outcomes. However, I would say use whichever levels you prefer. 😊
P.s. This is excluding the Prime Dragons that can only be bred with level 15 parents.
Thanks for your input. I appreciate it. You’re probably right if they don’t mention dragon levels in breeding. I know that DragonVale was the first dragon breeding game & I assumed all others were based on this game or along similar lines. I still use as old a dragon as I can to breed with. Old habits are hard to break. Why try to get a dragon to epic age if it didn’t matter? That’s why I think it does matter.
