DragonVale: How to Breed an Opal Dragon (October Gemstone Dragon)

In DragonVale for the Android and iOS systems (iPhone and iPad, etc.),the Opal Dragon is the sixth Gemstone Dragon introduced to the game, representing the month of October. Being a Gemstone dragon, it earns gems instead of gold and can not mate at all.

The Opal Dragon has a base breeding time of 31 hours, sells for 1,500,000 gold, and earns 100,000 XP upon successful breeding at level 14.

To get the Opal Dragon, breed a Lava Dragon with a Mud Dragon during the month of October.

Check out my DragonVale Breeding Guide for more dragon breeding combinations, as well as the combinations you’ll need to make the necessary dragons for the Opal Dragon, and other Gemstone Dragons.

    I got mine using lava and mud on the upgraded epic island after trying maybe 18 times with lava and mud on both the island and the cave…since I have 2 of each, I just kept doing those until I got it.

    Oh and I didn’t breed them in the epic breeding cave because I don’t have it so is there any other combos I can try?

  3. Ariel says

    When I breed the mud with the lava dragon every time I got either mud or lava! I tried 30 times in one day and I used up most of my gems and I’m really sad now because the only rare dragon I have is the equinox dragon :(

    Can’t believe it! Got an opal on 2nd try. NEVER got the sapphire even with daily multiple breedings!! Happy! Doesn’t take much lol! :)
