Every dragon is characterized by inborn elements. These elements are: Fire , Earth , Nature , Water , Air , Magic , Light , Twilight , Time , and Space . Dragons may belong to a single element (Primary dragons) or they may be hybrid dragons and belong to two, three, or even four elements.
Some dragons are considered rare, (for purposes of breeding, all dragons with a Rarity value of Uncommon () or above are considered rare) and are thus harder to breed. Breeding chances may be increased by breeding together dragons that have the +% Rare Breeding Chance Perk. Note that even with this perk, breeding rare dragons can take many, many tries!
Rarity also impacts the number of points a dragon is worth when computing the Dragons score in the Top Players lists. All common dragons are worth 1 point and all rare dragons are worth 3 points. The score is the sum of all common dragons in all habitats (including the resort) X 1 plus the sum of all rare dragons X 3.
