The goal of this site is to learn how to breed dragons: starting with the
dragon egg to the fully grown-up dragon (height of about 4 meters -- 12 feet -- and weight of about 500 kg -- about 1000 pounds -- or more!).

A breeder has a score based on the number of galleons (the sorcerer currency unit) and on the total weight of all his born dragons (as well as the sum of all his dragons skills beginning at level 3).
The simulation (i.e. all the miscellaneous computation about heat, thirst, hunger, ...) is done once per hour only; hence, don't be surprise if it takes some time for our pumpkins, dragons, ... to grow!
With only a few minutes a day on this site, you will keep your dragons healthy and you will make progress in your dragon breeding skills!

Suggestions, assistance, ...

If you need some help or if you have some suggestions (including better graphics or fixing typos), feel free to contact the web site developpers by owl-mail (to SAurOn or isa or evyncke) or on the forum forum (currently mainly in French but there is one forum in English).

This help page varies based on your level (experience) in this game... Come back from time to time to get help linked to your new experience level! Alternatively, you can click on one specific level in the table of contents to see the help linked to another level.

Dragon Eggs

Dragons hatch from an egg: exactly like chickens!
For sure, the dragon egg is much bigger; moreover, the mother dragon heat the egg by spitting gentle how flames on it.
As you probably don't spit flames (I hope!), you need a different method to heat the egg: place the egg in a cauldron and put the cauldron in a burning fire. The quantity of heat before hatching is between 4,000 and 6,000 kcal.
In order to ensure a better heat tranfer between the fire and the egg, the egg must be placed in the water (like in your kitchen). But, water evaporates... and you need to refill the cauldron every hour or so by pouring waterin it.
Magical wood logs are mandatory to heat the cauldron. Each log produces 200 kcal over one hour: exactly the time required to burn completely. If you do the math, you need between 20 and 30 hours (and the same number of logs of course) to give enough heat to the egg (of course assuming that there is always enough water to maximize the heat transfer).
As they are magic, you need to go to the
Diagon Alley (1 galleon per log). The shipping direct to your cellar will be done by the shops. Do not forget to go downstiar in your cellar to bring back the log to your fire!
The beauty with magical logs is that once a log is completely burned, another one from the stack of logs will fly directly in the fire!
Hagrid, himself, will give you the first dragon egg with some money (50 galleons) to take care of it. But, until further notice, your fire is only large enough to boil a single egg!If you want to breed further dragons, you'll need to buy other eggs in the Diagon Alley (or at the Gringotts Stock Exchange) for a price of 10 galleons. But, until further notice, your fire is only large enough to boil a single egg!

Dragon Babies

Dragon babies hatch after about 2 days of heathing, they have a weight of 1 to 3 kg (2 to 6 pounds) for a height of 20 to 30 cm (about 1"). Hagrid will congratulate you by giving you 30 galleons after the hatching.

The Dragons

Once hatched, the dragons will grow very very fast (about 1% per hour, this makes 26% a day -- don't agree? make the math ;-)!
A dragon becomes adult once he is 1.5 meter tall (5"); this will require between 7 and 9 days of continuous growth -- assuming a well fed and well cared of dragon of course). Once they are adults, they change their physical look and are able to
reproduce. But their growth does not stop! They continue to grow until more than 4 meters (about 12") and to get more weight until more than 500 kg (1000 pounds)... The maximum weight is reached after 11 to 12 days and the maximum size is reached after 11 to 13 days. Each dragon has a maximum size different than the others.
Every dragon has a set of parameters: In some cases, you will see two buttons:
to display the family tree of one of your dragons and
to display all the descendants of one of your dragons.

Dragon Avatars

You will notice quickly that each dragon has a photograph (actually a drawing). This drawing is called an avatar.
By default, various avatars are automatically associated your dragons according to their age and their sex.
It is also possible to change the avatar of your dragons by uploading on the server a drawing of yours.
CAUTION: this drawing must be done by yourself or you must have the authorization of the author to use an avatar made by another person.
Any violation of this rule can lead to the exclusion of the player from this site. How to have its avatar?
  1. display the page of your dragon by clicking on this dragon;
  2. click on the button change avatar;
  3. a list of several avatars is displayed, you have then the choice between:
    • use one of these avatars by clicking on Utiliser;
    • you can also use a drawing or a picture which is on your computer (maximum file size 40000 bytes, idealy 250 x 250 pixels (maximum 600 pixels) with a transparent background) by clicking on Browse... (the exact name of the button depends on your browser), then find and select the file on your computer, then click on the button Télécharger
It is really unfriendly to copy other players' avatars without their agreement... Accepted file formats are GIF, PNG, JPEG the preferred ones, else BMP, SWF et TIFF.

Moving Dragons

Once your dragon is born it is possible to move it in various places: house, field of pumpkins, Forbidden Forest,…

In order to do so, you have to:

Then, you just have to click on the final destination which appears on the rowlocation.


At home, your dragons rest and are calmed. Alas, the height of the door of your house limits to 2 meters the size of the dragons which can enter there. To reach your
cellar or your mangers, it is necessary to pass by the house.

The Cellar

Your house has a cellar. This is the place where you can stock any number of pumpkins, eggs, seeds, ...

To go in your cellar, it is first necessary to go in your house (by selecting the arrow Home in the menu on the left hand pane), then, to choose to go down in the cellar

To fill the cellar, it is necessary for example to go in your field and to collect pumpkins (to even open a pumpkin to collect 20 seeds out of them). Or to go to buy goods with the Diagon Alley shop or the Gringotts Stock Exchange. To empty the cellar, it is necessary to go first in the house and to go down in the cellar. You will have then the choice tto sell at a fixed price with a merchant of the Diagon Alley (in general at a not very good price) or , to sell with the Gringotts Stock Exchange or to:

Diagon Alley

It is the place where all the stockbreeders of dragons can go to buy various things: magic logs, seeds of pumpkins, egg of dragon,…

How to Get more Galleons?

This is of course the 1,000,000 galleons question!
The simplest way is to buy pumpkin seeds, to make them grow and to resell the pumpkins (even pumpkin seeds). Also, Hagrid will also congratulate you for the birth of each dragon by giving you a small amount of money.
But, the ideal is to resell
eggs laid by your female dragons or to even resell your dragons to countries (in general in Transylvania) where the dragons were hunted and exterminated by Moguls. This option is offered only for the large dragons.


The scores of the stockbreeders are computed each hour by making the sum of the number of gallions plus twice the weight and the sum of
skills (starting from level 3) of all the dragons of the stockbreeders. That corresponds to the number of gallions that you could have by selling all your dragons.

Pumpkin Field

Each farmer (heu breeder) has a single field of pumpkins. It may contain a number of pumpkins (in the form of seeds or in the form of ripe pumpkins) for all its dragons. The size of this field depends on your level.
The field is very useful: you can leave your dragons for several hours or even days: he will never go hungry (as long as there are still pumpkins!), and he is going to rest. The only problem is that there is no water, therefore, the dragons will thirst after 4 days ...
Managing your field is very important for your dragon because he loves to eat pumpkin. Small dragons (under 10 kg) eat a pumpkin to fill their stomachs by 40% (so they can no longer eat for 40 hours), average dragons (over 10 kg) eat a pumpkin to fill their stomach by 20% (so they can no longer eat for 20 hours), the largest dragons (over 100 kg) eat a pumpkin to fill their stomachs 10% ... All dragons eat a pumpkin per hour.
Note: it is therefore not surprising if a dragon with an almost full belly (for example 75% for a baby) does not eat a pumpkin immediately and instead continues to let his stomach to empty ... We must wait until the stomach is empty enough to absorb a whole pumpkin in order not to waste!
In addition, the pumpkins contains lots of calories and make your dragons grow by 2% in each pumpkin eaten! (A bit like the various candies and other sweets for humans - but a dragon with a lot of fat is interesting for selling).
In addition, you can sell your pumpkin to earn gallions to the Diagon Alley merchands (sale price 0 galleons).
If you do not have any pumpkins, you can also buy them.
Otherwise,you need to buy seeds (0.05 galleon per seed) and to sow them, do not forget to water, and two days after, your seeds will have grown and will be transformed into giant pumpkins! Then, they can be transferred either in your cellar (in the form of pumpkin seeds or - once opened, a pumpkin gives 20 pumpkin seeds) or be eaten by your dragons.
Note: Once the seeds are sown, it is impossible to sow more seeds until all seeds have turned into ripe pumpkins...

Note: There is a rumour that the choc-pumpkins exist. They are chocolate pumpkins that are a delight for your dragons: they will no longer be hungry nor thirsty, and their morale will return to 100%, they will grow a little, even if they have reached their maximum weight. In addition, a single choc-pumpkin is enough for all your dragons! Alas, no breeder knows how to obtain these choc-pumpkins!

Multiple Fields

Breeders of level 5 and above can buy new fields (at a price of 10 galleons per m 2. Each of these fields will have a unique name. The owner of these fields may give access rights to other breeders: By clicking on , it is possible to change the order of listing of the various fields to which you have access. Simply click on the up or down arrows. It is also possible to hide a field (eg because it is empty or poorly maintained): Hidden Fields will no longer be shown as a possible place of destination.
By clicking on the trash bin , you can give up your access right on that field. This can not be undone (unless you ask again to the owner a right of access). If you were a co-owner and that you invested money in this field in order to extend it, you will be refunded and the area of the field will be reduced accordingly. If your dragons were in the field, they will be automatically moved to the dragon sitting.

Magical Lake

It is a place for all breeders (so that you can come across other dragons!). A place with a little touch of magic which is primarily used by dragons to quench rapidly: in a few seconds, their mouths swallow water as fast as they spit fire! And they drink up to 20% of their thirst in an instant. There is therefore no need to stay longer in most cases.

Forbidden Forest

This is the second location common to all breeders. It is a place strictly prohibited for the Hogwarts students.

However, you can drive your dragon at the edge of the forest without any problem

Your dragon gets rid of pests and other evil creatures by spitting flames (as long as its flame thank is not empty), which will fill its stomach. However, hunting is stressful, thus increasing its nervousness! And its concentration in hunting decline ... So it eats less and less with the time passing.

When a dragon has a good morale (greater than 80%), and if it spends a long time in the Forbidden Forst, sometimes, it will bring you some magical logs! The number of 'harvested' logs depends on its size and on the length of time it spent in the Forest.

Hogwarts Castle

It is also a place for all breeders. With a little luck, you can cross your heroes: Harry, Ron and Hermione!

But your dragons love to go to Hogwarts to boost their morale!

Dragon Sitting

This is the daycare for dragons (both babies and adults). You can leave your dragons for one or more days, they will have neither hunger nor thirst, but on the other hand they do not grow and grow. To put a dragon on the Dragon Sitting, simply move it there.
The price of the Dragon Sitting is 0.01 galleon(s)/night/dragon.

The Weather

The weather conditions change from day to day! They follow the seasons in the Northern hemisphere.
Each weather condition has an impact on crops (growth rate, moisture levels) and, in some cases, on your dragons (flame consumption, moral, ...).

As you know, Hogwarts students receive their mail by express owl ... As this site is on the Internet, it is possible to send electronic messages called owl-mail. The maximum size is 2000 characters.
Recipients must obviously be another dragon breeder (you must use the username/nickname). You can learn about other nicknames by looking at the best scores (lower left), or by clicking
connected (on the top), or by crossing other breeders at Hogwarts, in the Forbidden Forest or at the Magical Lake.
It is also possible to use an address book (carnet a notebook appears). To avoid the problem of spam, you can send up to 12 owl-mails per hour.

Black List of Spammers

If you are tired of receiving owl-mails from certain other farmers (or even from Hagrid or the Gringotts ...), you can build your personal blacklist. This list contains the name of all players from which you do not want to receive owl-mails...
The herders on your blacklist will see no difference, but their owl-mail will never be delivered to you.

The Breeders' Chat Room

There is a chatroom among breeders. To start, just click on
chat in the top frame.
Warning: the chat will open another window by using the technique of pop-up windows. Some browsers are now configured to prevent these windows (because it is a technique used by commercial advertisements). Moreover, the chat uses javascript, therefore, your browser must be relatively recent and allow both the pop-up windows and javascript.
Generally, there are few players in the chatroom, it is advised to use chat options to be notified when a user connects.
Currently, the chatroom is shared among all players including different languages.
When you see , you can click on it and this will open a bulletin board (a long lasting chatroom) where you can write message by clicking on the Write button. All players with the same language as yours will be able to see this message.

The Newsroom

It is the Gazette of breeders!
You can see the last two news by selecting
News from the menu in the top frame.
When a new has been published since your last connection, it will appear as soon as you connect.


To be able to identify you, the server needs to know your user name and a password. On first use, you must register: it is free and it takes a few seconds: enter a username, a password and a valid email address (optional: your first and last name). An validation e-mail is then sent, it contains a web address that you must visit in order to activate your nickname. And voila ;-)
If you forget your password or your nickname, it is possible to have them sent by email to your email address when identifying via the
recovery procedure.
E-mail reminders (for example, if your dragons are dying of hunger) will be sent to you after a few days without connection. This will be the one and only email sent if you do not reconnect anymore.
Your username and your dragons will be kept active for several months without a connection to the web site, but their health will suffer from your lack of care.

Your Profile

profile includes a set of options and parameters related to you. The set includes: For most of the above parameters, you can change them as often as you want. You simply need to click on My Profile (in the top frame).
You can then display those parameters. If you want to modify them, it is mandatory to enter again your current password! This is for your security.
Note: some parameters can only be changed once!


This is on the same page,
My Profile, that you can click on the button if you want to unregister from this web site.

Game Godparent (Sponsor)

All breeders level less than or equal to 4 can choose a game godfather or godmother. It is a breeder of at least 4 levels more than you who agrees to help you by offering advice and / or
Each breeder sponsor can have a maximum of 8 godchildren.
For fairness, it is recommended to send an owl-mail to your potential godparent before you name your godparent. Once the choice of yourgodparent made (by changing your profile), it is no longer possible to change again. So, choose well!
Note: the choice of a sponsor is not mandatory. Many breeders never had a godparent.
Once you reach level 5, you are experimented enough and you are loosing your godparent automagically. Your previous godparent will then be able sponsor another breeder (just like you do, because you just became a super breeder!).
In the list of connected players, the status of sponsorship appears:
