When you bread with another player and you get twin dragons, which means you get one and the fellow breeder gets the same one. They tend to have a sphere above there head and the egg itself glows as well. What does this mean and is it something special?

  • You are absolutely right, it is not a duplicate. I retracted my vote to close, and I hope everybody in the review queue reads the comments and decides to keep the question open.

It is just appearance differences. According to the Dragonvale FAQ:

Appearance Differences

Twin Dragons appear differently than other dragons.

The most noticeable difference is a blue orb which hovers above the dragon's head from levels 1 through level 10.

When the dragon is above level 10 the orb, crown, or star will have a blue glow around it.

The buttons viewable from a habitat has a blue background and a yellow glow border instead of the usual gray stone background.

Likewise, when in the description menu the background will be blue and have a yellow glow border instead of the usual tan dragon scale background.

Twin Dragons eggs have a blue glow over them, and if placed on a pedestal the egg pedestal will also receive a blue glow around the egg on it.

So it is indeed different then the level 10+ sphere (sorry for the confusion), but it seems to be only a difference in appearance.


I used to have this confusion when I started dragon vale too, the sphere hovering over their head just means you've fed the dragon over level 10. you can remove it by clicking on the crown on the bottom right corner when viewing your dragon. hope this helps :)
