I can't seem to find out how to breed a diamond dragon in Dragonvale. I've tried quite a few combos in the Epic Breeding Island, but none work for me. Anyone know a confirmed combo? I've heard it's Mine and Ice, but it doesn't work. Do they need to be a certain level? I really need a gemstone dragon.

I play on iOS, but I've heard reports from Android users that you need to load an update to the game in order to get the Aquamarine from March to switch over to Diamond in the shop. It's not clear to me whether this effects your odds of breeding, but it may. Trying checking for updates to the game. – EBongo Apr 9 '13 at 1:14
@EBongo Oh thank goodness you informed me of that; I was worried! – DekuLeaf Apr 9 '13 at 1:21
Getting this dragon is really hard. – DekuLeaf Apr 11 '13 at 20:31
It is indeed. It's killing my OCD need to have them all. I suppose it could be a play on their part to suck some more dollars out of us. But at that price I'm not buying... – EBongo Apr 12 '13 at 2:00

I can confirm that the combo you're looking for is: Ice + Mine. Since this is a Gemstone dragon, it is not obvious that this is the pair you need. Another consequence of it being a Gemstone is that this is the only possible pairing, and you can not breed more by having two. Your dragons don't need to be any special level, but if they are over 15 you have a better chance. Also, the EBI will give you slightly better chances than the breeding cave, so if you are spending gems to speed up breeding, I recommend prioritizing the EBI.

Personally, I've found this one quite hard, perhaps the hardest of the Gemstones (diamond pun for you :) ). With the long fail times of Quicksilver, Steel, Silver, and Platinum, you end up waiting a long time with each failed attempt. The month is still early, so keep calm and breed on.

I got pretty fortunate with mine. Platinum > Silver > Diamond. Still, I hated having my island occupied for 96 hours of bad luck. – Fluttershy Apr 8 '13 at 2:07
Thanks! And lol, nice diamond joke. ;) – DekuLeaf Apr 8 '13 at 19:39

Hi Emma, could you elaborate a little more your answer? – Michel Apr 8 '13 at 21:09
Emma, your answer is great. But next time when you answer a question, make sure to detail it and give it a little more unph, you get more vote-ups and reputation! – DekuLeaf Apr 8 '13 at 22:05
Hi Emma, I think you confused Iceberg with Ice. There is only one combo for this dragon, and it is Ice + Mine. – EBongo Apr 8 '13 at 23:27

Google dragonvale sandbox and use that to find all dragon breed combos. You can put in 2 dragons and get the results possible — or viceversa. It is awesome to say the least and I recommend it to anyone who plays it.

Cool! I'll try that. – DekuLeaf Apr 13 '13 at 18:10
