So a new limited time dragon has been added to DragonVale, namely the Butterfly dragon. I see this is a tri-combination dragon using Air, Lightning and Fire. With the last few dragons however simply matching these elements has proven to not be effective. What is a good combination of dragons to produce this type of dragon?

  • I would add a "and how do I know I have one" because it is always interesting to know the incubation time. – EBongo May 11 '12 at 2:39

Popular combinations:

  • Firefly Dragon + Air dragon
  • Firefly Dragon + Sonic dragon

You need to be level 14.

Breeding butterfly dragon takes place in a normal breeding cave or on the breeding island.

Breeding time: 12 hours

Firefly is a requirement

It has been confirmed multiple places that one Firefly dragon is a requirement to breed this dragon. So your options are Firefly + Air or Firefly + Air Hybrid. For Air Hybrids, Sonic and Blazing have both been reported to work. They are probably best, since they do not introduce any new elements.

  • As a footnote, I got both of mine from Firefly + Air, at the EBI. – EBongo May 16 '12 at 20:39

  • Blazing and firefly worked for me first try but then could not duplicate result a second time – user25582 May 18 '12 at 13:06

To breed a butterfly dragon, on the right side, put the firefly dragon, and in the left, the sonic dragon to get the butterfly dragon.
