From Dragon Mania Legends (DML) Wiki

Elements are a main characteristic of a Dragon that determines their weaknesses and strengths in Battle. Elements also influence a Dragon's stats, their offspring during breeding, and other interactions, either with other Dragons or the environment.

Element Types

Each Dragon has one to three different Elements. Elements can also be divided into two different types, Regular Elements and Special Elements.

Regular Elements

Regular Elements form the basis of the game and include:

  • Fire Fire
  • Wind Wind
  • Earth Earth
  • Water Water
  • Plant Plant
  • Metal Metal
  • Energy Energy
  • Void Void
  • Light Light
  • Shadow Shadow

Every Dragon has a base or first Element. Each Dragon with a regular base Element has a corresponding single-Element Base Dragon that unlocks at certain Hall of Fame levels, or Dragon Collector Milestones. A Dragon possessing only regular Elements can only be a certain Rarity, namely Common, Uncommon, Rare, or Epic, regardless of the number of Elements possessed. Elements any Dragon possesses after their base Element are referred to as their secondary Elements.

Special Elements

Special Elements include Legendary Legendary, Primal Primal, Divine Divine, Ancient Ancient, and Tyrant Tyrant Elements. Most of these Dragons have unlockable or non-awakened secondary Elements (except Primal-Element Dragons). Notably, these Dragon's base Element also matches their Rarity. These Dragons are most often available in limited-time Events.

Element Awakening

Most Dragons can use their Elements upon being hatched. The exceptions to immediate Element use are Legendary, Divine, Ancient and Tyrant Dragons, whose second Element can be awoken at Level 20 and whose third can be awoken at Level 30. Such Dragons have their first Element already awoken, though the second costs 750,000 Gold Icon.png Gold, and the third costs 99 Gems Icon.png Gems to awaken. Only Dragons housed in Habitats are eligible for Element awakening; thus Dragons stored in the Dragon Vault cannot have Elements awoken until housed.


Dragons whose regular Elements require awakening, appear locked until awakened; therefore they cannot learn any of the corresponding (also locked) Skills.

  • For Enchantment all Elements require their respective material, regardless of locked state.
  • Some buyable Dragons cannot be bought until their highest Element is unlocked.
Time Reduction

Whenever an Element-awakening process is occurring in a Habitat, a timer appears above it. The icon of the Dragon(s) undergoing Element awakening has the Speed-Up Arrow Icon.png on the bottom, indicating awakening time can be skipped. The amount of Gems to skip appears at the top. Pressing the icon in this stage opens a window displaying the Element being awakened, the time remaining until awoken, and an option to Skip All   Gems Icon.png skip all in exchange for Gems.

The Gem cost for skipping awakening time is calculated based upon the following formula: (TimeInSeconds ^ -0.44) * 0.15 * TimeInSeconds, and the final result is rounded up by 1 if it is between the 1-10 range, by 5 if it is between the 10-100 range, and by 25 if it is between the 100-200 range. For example:

Apart from using Gems, the awakening time can also be reduced through forging Chronosian Seals or activating Chronos's power, actions which reduce several ongoing timers in the game by 6 hours.

Element Attributes

See Notable Formulas or Tables for information on calculating these attributes.

Elements, along with Rarity, influence a Dragon's attributes. Elements influence all stats, and breeding and hatching times. Some Elements act as wild cards during breeding. In the case of Dragons with unlockable Elements, their Elements influence their attributes as follows: only the base Element applies to breeding and hatching; all Elements apply to Base Gold per Hour stats, regardless if awoken or not; the secondary Elements apply to Base Attack and Base Health stats only when they are awoken.

All Elements are used as a form of attack in battle. For example, the Fire Element is used as a fire attack. Attack strength is normally a medium-level attack for all combinations, only in special combinations does the attack become strong or weak.

Attack Strength

An attack has one of 3 different strength levels: which depends on the attacking Element and the first (or base) Element of the target Dragon.

Colored symbols appear on targets in battle, indicating attack strength:

  • Strong Attack – Green ring below, green sword icon – 50% damage bonus Strong Attack Symbol.png
  • Normal Attack – Yellow ring below, no sword icon – no damage bonus Neutral Attack Symbol.png
  • Weak Attack – Red ring below, red shield icon – damage reduced by 50% Weak Attack Symbol.png
Important Icon.png
Dragon attack strength is further enhanced through Leveling, Training, Skills, Enchantment, and Sigils.

For example, the Attack strength of the Fire Dragon Icon.png Fire Dragon's Fire attack against other Dragons is:

Conversely, a Fire Dragon receives the following damage level from other Dragons:

  • Strong from any attacking Water Water, Shadow Shadow, Divine Divine, or Primal Primal Elements.
  • Medium from any attacking Wind Wind, Earth Earth, Plant Plant, Metal Metal, Energy Energy, Void Void, Light Light, Legendary Legendary, or Primal Primal Elements.
  • Weak from any attacking Fire Fire Elements.

Elemental Order

The Elemental order of Dragons takes different forms, but in most cases, the Elements appear in order from base to last, either from top to bottom or from left to right. In Battle, any Dragon can be tapped/clicked to see its Elements in its information box. When it is the Trainer's Dragon's turn in Battle, and the Elements are given for attack choice, the base Element appears in the middle, the second at the top, and the third at the bottom.
