"The great wizard Garriott often uses rare plants as reagents in his complex spells. While gathering a batch of the nightshade plant at midnight on a full moon, he happened upon a new type of dark dragon. He promptly named them nightshade dragons due to the resemblance of their wings to the plant of the same name."

This one's baby form looks like it's wearing a mask like its a super hero, quite pretty. Also love that shade of purple :)

Starting over with my life, one day at a time.
Email me at if you need me immediately!
Not taking GC friends at this time.

Love the purple, too.

Total Dragons.... 179
Just need Jade and 4 of the new hybrids, and I'll have them all.....

Something screwy here. I keep getting this one from dark and earth.

Dark+Plant - but the time is way off - mine is taking 13 1/2 hours.

Same here. No matter...all I kept getting is Fungus, which is fine 'cause you get over 3 mil in coins selling Fungus.


272 different dragons so far...

Yep, 13 1/2 hours incubate and breed time on mine. Kinda strange seeing as there is no listing for these time we are getting ????

Thanks for the tip! After unsuccessfully breeding Dark and Plant, finally got my Nightshade with Dark (15) and Fungus (13)!

This one proves to be harder to get than I thought.

Ok, I decided to give it one more try with Dark (Lv. 12) and Plant (Lv. 13) in the upgraded Breeding Cave... and yay, I finally succeeded and ended up with a Nightshade egg which is in the Nursery now, have to admit that I used gems to speed up breeding cause was too impatient to wait! :p

But just like someone posted earlier, the incubation time takes longer than mentioned above, it actually takes 13 1/2 hours!

I got this one by mixing Plant (lvl 20) with Dark (lvl 17) in Enchanted Breeding Cave. Actually I wanted to breed Bramble but, no luck :( Next time. Good luck with this one.
