"The High Plains of Faridat were visited by a frightening phenomenon that saw lightning bursts fly up from the ground and into the sky. The dwellers there named them "Darkling" strikes and would run indoors when the shocks came. That is, until Professor Olivine discovered a sneaky group of hybrid dragons were the source. The good professor gathered them in DragonVale, where their talents could be used to amaze rather than terrify."

How do we breed this one?

From what I understand, this dragon must be won (purchased with tickets) in the current Faire.

Cheers!

I don't think this is breedable, but it can be purchased with Tickets.

Any info on this?

This dragon needs to be won in the current event, but once you have one, it can be bred in the co-op cave if you have a friend that has it too :)

I've got my gem list going again... It's huge! I'll get to everyone as fast as I can but it won't be often :(

Darkling Breeding Combo
Since this is a limited hybrid dragon, you need two of this dragon to breed more. You can buy one from the event for 6,260 tickets and breed with a friend's Darkling in the co op cave to try for more Darkling Dragons. Or you can buy two from the event and breed them yourself in the breeding cave or sanctuary.
Good luck everyone!

Ploof's and Xishom's comments seem to be conflicting... any clarification there? This nuance has always confused me.

No conflict. The Darkling dragon follows Hybrid dragon breeding rules. It can only breed with itself if there isn't a breeding combination which we currently do not have. So to breed Darkling, one can either breed it through Co-op or buy two Darklings and breed them in either the Cave or Island. Much as what Ploof and Xishom posted.

Hi Zach! Xishom was more explicit in her explanation. If you are confused, go by her statement. Hope you are enjoying the event.

I was so hoping this dragon was going to be breed able. Thought our best chance was this dragon. we need to save tickets. Going to be around 20000 at the end of the collection period and short Loot, Monolith 5, Darkling and Faire. The first 3 are 16500 ish and the thinking is the Faire dragon is going to be expensive. Oh goody.

Sonic Youth's picture

Midday + SF5 + Loot + M5 + Darkling = 22315

Chellem, I bred Monolith 5. Loot was fairly easy, too. And yes I think Faire will be the most expensive dragon to date. Save your tickets and try to breed at least Loot.

IPK, since this event has started we have bred 2 Jasper dragons, the August gemstone and wished the Tourmaline. That's not much success. The pressure is building. Will leave Darkling just on the off chance a combo does spring up. Here's hoping.

Ipadkitty's picture

Oh wow, Chellem. I think you need an extra sprinkle of good luck fairy dust. May sprinkles rain down on you and your girl. Or, as the Irish say, I'm pressing my thumb for you.. (Good luck)!

Darkling + lightning in the coop. First try 14hrs breed time. Would it be the wraith dragon tho?

Add me on GC: the-furry-1

Currently 178/236 dragons.

Recent wins: Hydra, 4 monoliths, all basic hybrids

Next goals, Amber and monolith 3.

Ipadkitty's picture

Kit E Kat. It's not Darkling. According to the moderator, you have to buy Darkling and then you can breed it with others in coop to get more Darklings. I know, sad. Hope you're having fun!

Step right up! Darkling Dragon for $60! Get it while the event lasts! Cheers to everyone who bred for Event dragons because 6260 is a fairely steep price and we still have one more event and possibly a Tidal-a-like surprise.

Finally, got enough tixs to buy the Darkling. Got a 2nd one quiet easily in Coop. I was a tad surprise, expected to take tons more tries. Working on my 3rd right now.

alidingo's picture

Can you breed 1st darkling in co op, like others?

Ipadkitty's picture

Alidingo, no it must be purchased with tickets ...the only way to breed is Thorn plus Thorn right now. Darkling is the same way.

Help DV'ers! I have a friend who didn't get the Darkling Dragon during the event and now wants to breed for it during BEB. Is this possible? Has anyone tried and had any success with it? Thanks so much for any advice!

To breed the Darkling Dragon you just need the dark and lightning elements, so a Dark and Lightning Dragon would work.

Hello All,

Just breed this using Luminous (level 15) & Spark (level 15) on regular Epic Breeding Island.

I've just bred and hatched this dragon, I'm sure the combo I used was sun dragon level 10 and crypt dragon level 16.This combination has also just got me a pharaoh dragon. Both bred in basic breeding cave.

Bianca - Admin's picture

I just got this dragon by mixing Moon Dragon + Dark Dragon in the Co-op even I I wanted another dragon. Good luck. Keep in mind that all the dragons are available this Christmas.
