"The first known Carnival dragon emerged from hibernation near the end of a particularly long and bitter winter. Spied from the ivory tower of the great wizard Orlon, its brilliant colors and high energy snapped him out of the gloom he'd been lost in, contemplating the nature of Wizardkind. In that instant, he cast off his Master's robes, throwing his rings and charms and gold to the crowds who gathered to cheer him as he danced after the dragon out of town. When he returned, the people hardly recognized the cheerful, boisterous, and much rounder wizard as the same serious, gloomy Master Wizard they had known. It was said that the old Orlon had gone forever, and the new Orlon was full of life and joy--using his powerful magic now only for the creation of world class food and drink. New Orlon's is the most popular place to celebrate to this very day!"

The Carnival Dragon Page is up
The combo to breed this dragon is Pepper Dragon and a dragon with an earth element.
This dragon won't be here for long since it's available for Mardi Gras so try to get it before it's gone!
Also, don't forget that this dragon has come with a decoration, so be sure to snag one of those as well, they are only 1,000 gold so I know everybody can afford that.
Good luck everyone!!

Got 2 in a row with pepper & forest in that order

Baby Dragon

If Ash Wednesday is tomorrow does that mean this dragon will only be availabe today? That would be crazy! Anyone have a clue on how long this dragon will be obtainable? Because it has always been my understanding that Mardi Gras parting only lasted till Ash Wednesday, even in New Orleans.

The Squirrel Mother's picture

That would be diabolical. But, technically, yes, that's the way it works: you party before Ash Wednesday. The idea is that you're confessing sins, making right with God, abstaining from goodies etc, so get all the bad stuff done on Fat Tuesday. Having lived in Louisiana, I can say with certainty that it's debauchery one day and saintliness the next. Ashed foreheads are all over folks with hangovers. Anyway, if they DO snatch this dragon overnight, it'd certainly be a heckuva way to make us go on a dragon fast for Lent. Not very Godly, though.

Got one! Level 13 Pepper and level 12 Obsidian. He's CUTE! Now, to pick a name...

Game Centre ID: RuariGoesRawrr -- DragonVale Apple iOS -- feel free to friend me but make sure you let me know it's for DragonVale.^^

Thanks for the tip I got one, mayb 2, fm yr combo Pepper & Obsidian both Lvl15.

The Squirrel Mother's picture

Pepper and Sakura, both level 15, EBI. Burned through a couple hundred gems for it. Tried both Clover and Bone first and made a succession of expensive Mossy failures. Maybe 3 relatively short fails with this combo and got it. Whew!

Squirrelland has taken a chill pill and I'm baaaaa-aaaack!!!!

SaucyWench's picture

Pretty sure I got it with Pepper and Earth. I have 9:36:00 upgraded time on EBI. The combos above did not work for me, but every person is different.

Xishom's picture

Thought I should post this here
So I threw together a few pairs for some 15 attempt breeding combos, here are the results:

Pepper (19) + Earth (20)
Tree ***
Flower ****
Poison ***
Moss *
Forest *
Pepper *
Obsidian *
Carnival *

Pepper (19) + Tree (19)
Tree *
Flower *
Poison **
Moss ****
Forest **
Pepper *
Obsidian *
Carnival *
Lava **

Pepper (19) + Lava (19)
Tree ***
Flower **
Poison ***
Forest *
Pepper *
Carnival ***
Lava **

Pepper (19) + Obsidian (19)
Tree **
Flower *
Moss ***
Pepper ***
Obsidian *
Carnival *
Lava ****

Pepper (19) + Forest (19)
Tree ***
Flower *
Poison *
Forest ****
Pepper *
Obsidian **
Carnival *
Lava ***

According to these results, Pepper and Lava wields the best results with a rough 20% rate of success. Though note that in every experiment I managed to get at least one Carnival within 15 tries. Someone asked if I could try breeding with the same combos on a different park, so I will conduct that experiment next. I wrote these results on a sticky note so the order that I got the dragons in only applies to the first experiment, I was too lazy to write out the order after that one lol
*Also note all of these experiments took place on the Epic Breeding Sanctuary :)
Hope this helps!

Sam, if you have time, want to try Sakura? I had my parents both use that in their games after my fails with the others. Moms got 2 Carnival in a row with it, then Pops did the same. Pretty darned good after my fails. (I got a second - HAD to have 2 because, well, laissez les bon temps rouler - by putting the first Carnival back in with the Pepper. Not as fast as the Sakura. Spent 300 gems total for the 2 in my game, but then the other 4 "family" dragons were practically free. So, not too bad.)

YEAH! Thanks for the tip! I went with Pepper 16 and Lava 13 on EBI and got him... *happy dance* spent about 70 gems, but I can totally live with that, this guy is super CUTE!

Currently sitting at 260 of 261 ... Just Eridanian to go! (Thanks BeB event!) ... One more, one more!!!

Good Luck Everybody!!!

I got Moss 10 times before I got it. That hurt

Dragonsrawesome... Not sure. I hurried to get two in case they pulled them today. But, unfortunately, whatever they did to put them into the game has made my social tab 99% inoperable. If there's any new news in the tab, I can't get to it to read it. My game just crashes. Hopefully someone with an operable game will see this and check their news feed!

Used Pepper/Forest, both lvl 15, on the island. 1st try! Some are easy for me to get, others seem impossible. Now to figure out which habitat I want to put him in! :P

Christine Green's picture

No party for me.
I'm still definitely unlucky. 700+ gems later trying various combos of Pepper and either Earth or Earth Hybrid and I just cannot get it. :(

I don't seem to have any luck, either!

I start my days with dragons...it's a problem.

Leighanne2604's picture

Don't worry I'm still trying also I've used pepper and earth and pepper and sand, now pepper and lava and a sweet all NOTHING!!! I'm getting so frustrated with this one and also the moonstruck cause it's like I'm breeding and breeding for nothing and wasting time on trying to get just these two dragons and I'll end up missing out on all the other dragons... I thought I had some luck to me but after breeding these guys over fifty times, I'm starting to think my karma is coming back to bite me for something I must of done wrong lmao

Dragonislecra's picture

Pepper and earth both level 15 second try.

WolfGirl's picture

Hooray! Bred Lava & Pepper on EBI & got this beauty on my second try. Spent the gems to hurry up the breeding to confirm it was the Carnival. Tried the Pepper & Obsidian combo, but didn't have any luck with it. Good luck to all!

WolfGirl

I'm pretty sure I got this on my first try

Amber b cline

I finally hatched one on upgraded epic breeding island using Pepper dragon level 16 and obsidian dragon level 16. Too many tries to count. Glad to get this one since I couldn't obtain Moonstruck or Victory dragon.

I can't get this dragon no matter what I try. I've used so many gems and tried to upgrade the pepper and lava even more. On the EBI. Nothing. Very very sad

The Squirrel Mother's picture

Randired... Sorry you are having so much trouble getting one. Have you tried Sakura and Pepper? Apparently this one is available until the 27th so you've still got time. Good luck!

For me she also played very hard to get, but I finally have a carnival egg.
I used pepper (14) and moss (12) in the breeding cave.

Many thanks for the tip... just got Carnival on the first try too with the Moss + Pepper combo. :)

All the other combos like Pepper + Sakura, Pepper + Obsidian, Pepper + Bone or Pepper + Lava failed, especially the latter one I tried over and over with no luck!

Pepper is a fire/plant hybrid.

I've used a lot of gems and still haven't got her, dang! I'm still trying to get her pepper 15 + earth 15 if I don't get her this time I'm trying for Moss 15 + pepper 15

2016mandi'sdragonvale

What do you guys recommend if I don't have a pepper?. So far I'm using earth and poison

2016mandi's picture

If you don't have a pepper dragon breeding you one it doesn't take long and from what I've seen their levels dosent make a difference you still have the same chances. I breed mine and wasted so many gems trying to get her at first I finally just quite. Literally like several attempts and nothing anyways I tried today and on my 2 try it got her and then breed e
Pepper and earth again and got her again tried for a third time and got 8 hours so just keep trying you will get her

2016mandi'sdragonvale

After trying the pepper and lava combo, I did not succeed.
With that combo I got at least 1 flower dragon, 1 pepper dragon, 2 poison dragons, 2 obsidian dragons, 2 forest dragons, 2 tree dragons, 3 lava dragons and 5 moss dragons.
Afterwords, I tried pepper and moss both level 11 in the cave and got the carnival on my first try.
Time is running out! Good luck getting yours!
