General Gameplay

Do I need a Facebook account to play?
[Expand/Collapse All]
Though it is not required, it is recommended to link your game to your Facebook account. Should you change devices, your progress can be recovered by providing this information.
How do I get rid of ads in my game?
[Expand/Collapse All]
You need to make one purchase, no matter how little, using real money. This only removes the ads that take over the screen randomly unexpected, it does not remove ads that can be played in exchange for speeding up game items, earning more food, etc. The Pile of Gems bundle or the Clam when it is on sale are good recommendations for inexpensive purchases.
How do I change game language?
[Expand/Collapse All]
Press the Options Icon.png button in the top-right corner of the game, then choose the second green button (in English, this is the     Select Language     button). From the selection of flags, choose the one that you desire.

How do I enable/disable notifications and/or sound?
[Expand/Collapse All]
Push notifications (the ones used to remind you about certain features taking place in the game) and sound, are both enabled by default. To disable them or re-enable them, press the Options Icon.png button, then navigate to the     Settings     option.

Pressing the     Notifications     button opens a complete list of notifications sent by the game, and enabling/disabling them is done by checking/unchecking the box next to them.

Note: The game may occasionally send notifications of other kinds that cannot be found under this menu. Disabling these can only be done from within your respective device's app settings.


Pressing the     Sound Settings     button opens a menu where you have the option to turn down/up the (general) sound volume and/or music volume, or to enable/disable both by pressing the Sound Icon.png button.

Note: Sound from watching ad videos in the game will not be disabled, even if the sound is completely disabled in-game. The ad sound can only be disabled from within your respective device's settings.

How do I change my nickname?
[Expand/Collapse All]
Select the Options Icon.png button in the top-right corner of the game, then scroll down to Settings and from there choose Select Nickname. Bear in mind that while choosing your nickname for the very first time is free, subsequent changes will cost 5 Gems each.
How do I provide gameplay feedback?
[Expand/Collapse All]
This wiki is run by players for other players, it is not in any way affiliated with the game maker (Gameloft). To provide feedback to Gameloft, consider contacting them via the Official Discord. Please do not post gameplay related issues/suggestions on the wiki.

What are the purple tokens related to Clan Dragons?
[Expand/Collapse All]
The purple token is called a Clan Dragon Power Token Icon.png Clan Dragon Power Token, read about it here.
Do I lose Clan Coins if I leave my Clan?
[Expand/Collapse All]
No, they are retained. Though, your Donations count is reset regardless of rejoining the same clan or not.


What does this building do? (new)
[Expand/Collapse All]
Each building generally has a function, and often serves as a physical access point for a game feature. To determine what a building does, please see:
How do I move buildings?
[Expand/Collapse All]
See Moving Buildings
Can I sell buildings?
[Expand/Collapse All]
Habitats can be sold only when they are empty, not being built, or not being upgraded. Other buildings can be sold when they are not undergoing any activity (only then will the selling symbol appears). The Dragon Academy, Temples, Dragon Vault and the Breeding Den and Hatchery are unsellable. To sell a building, select it, then (if available) choose the Sell Button.png button.


What should I save/use Gems for?
[Expand/Collapse All]
  • Leveling the Ancient Portal: With more energy units, you can hire a Dragon from one of your friends on battle maps, participate in more battles, and earn more food by redoing Side Quest battles.
  • Leveling the Hatchery: You can hatch more eggs at the same time.
  • Purchasing the VIP Status: Battle rewards on the Campaign Map are increased by 50% (and on higher levels, that is a significant and important amount of Gold and Food).
  • Buying a Boss Habitat and a Boss Dragon (if highly desired): They cannot be bred, only bought with Gems, and each boss increases Gold production by 10%.
What happens if VIP Status expires while participating in a VIP-only event?
[Expand/Collapse All]
Even if your VIP period is over, you remain a participant for the remainder of that event. VIP Level is also unaffected. Additionally, any progress accumulated in that event is not lost.
How do I raise my VIP Level?
[Expand/Collapse All]
Through the purchase of Gems. For more information: VIP Levels.


Do battle skill effects stack (e.g., Does Stone Shield effect from two different Dragons combine)?
[Expand/Collapse All]
See Skills for information on which Skills stack and under what circumstances.
How do I get more battle stars in a Campaign Map?
[Expand/Collapse All]
Read this article.


I'm having good/bad luck, why?
[Expand/Collapse All]
This game, like other computer games, uses Random Number Generation (RNG) that determines a player's luck in obtaining certain things, such as chest loot. The game also uses weighted probabilities to help determine the rate and frequency of certain items generated or rewarded, resulting in weighted random numbers.[1] This allows the game developer to adjust the drop rate of certain items based on factors such as type. Players having favorable or difficult luck obtaining things may find their luck change with additional gameplay, or by trashing or refreshing items/quests/tasks, or repeating (non-exploiting) actions a significant number of times to provide additional opportunities to obtain them. Paid features may also influence outcomes, though these are still governed by RNG and thus can have mixed results for players.

Some event types in Dragon Mania Legends rely more heavily on "pure" RNG (pure luck or randomness) for success in obtaining Dragons, such as grand prize dragons in Divine or Ancient Chest Opening Events, and other events rely more on grinding (performing repetitive tasks) and/or performing tasks at certain intervals.

What type of RNG is used?
[Expand/Collapse All]
This game, like many computer games, uses pseudo-RNG (PRNG) because it is efficient and "more effective to calculate on a large scale (think of a random number being generated every single time you trash a recipe / ingredient in Cake Craze, and then multiply that by every other player also doing the same thing).[2]"

PRNG is algorithm-based, and though it isn't considered to be truly random like "True" Random Number Generation (TRNG), "it works well and is used widely in video games for the purposes of randomizing digital dice rolls or calculating prizes/rewards inside virtual chests.<sup[2]" There are other types of RNG (e.g., Hardware RNG, a type of TRNG, which uses physical phenomena to generate truly random numbers such as atmospheric or thermal noise), though the collection and detection of input are inefficient and cannot be reproduced for easy testing.[3] PRNG methods, when well-designed/chosen and tested, can be hard to distinguish from True-RNG (though various PRNG methods may be applied by different game makers in a multitude of ways, and it may be adjusted or unadjusted resulting in significantly different experiences).[4][5] The specific PRNG method used in Dragon Mania Legends is known only to the game maker (Gameloft).

How are 'weights' applied?
[Expand/Collapse All]

The method for randomly drawing something for the player (such as cakes / ingredients in Cake Craze) [Gameloft uses] a system of 'weights', which is [how] games can determine how rare something is.[2]

Players can generally expect that items of a rarer type classification will have a lower weight probability. A simple example of weights applied to items in-game (using the example of a role-playing game with equipment items for a character) might be:

You could get a powerful sword, a weak shield, and an average helmet, let's say, and by using weights you would determine that there are fewer 'pieces' of the sword and the most 'pieces' of the shield. Through this, you have a total number of pieces available in that chest and, by taking one of those pieces, have a potential chance of an item appearing (i.e., the one item in the chest that is generated). For example:

  • weight of 29 on the sword (11.6%)
  • weight of 73 on the helmet (29.2%)
  • weight of 148 on the shield (59.2%)

You can have any number of items and weights in such a system, this is just a basic example to explain how it typically works[...] And the fewer potential outcomes there are, the more likely you are to get repeat results in a row; consider flipping a coin vs. a [twenty-sided dice] chance.[2]

How do I tell which Dragon I'm breeding?
[Expand/Collapse All]
Use the Breeding Calculator or the Table of Dragons.
How do I tell which Dragon I'm hatching?
[Expand/Collapse All]
Use the Dragon Eggs image category to look through and identify your egg. Note that there are "previous page" and "next page" buttons because there are several pages of dragon egg images.
What happens if two Legendary, Primal, Divine, Ancient, or Tyrant Dragons are bred together?
[Expand/Collapse All]
They will each pass on only one (unlocked) Element. Read more about it here: Breeding.
Does upgrading the Breeding Den increase breeding outcome odds?
[Expand/Collapse All]
No. Upgrading the Breeding Den is only for breeding Enchantment Dragons.
Can I breed the Dragon of the Week using a combination besides the one given by the game?
[Expand/Collapse All]
No. The in-game combination is the only one that can result in the successful breeding of the Dragon of the Week.
Can I breed the Dragon of the Month using Elements besides the ones given by the game?
[Expand/Collapse All]
No. The required Elements given by the game must be included in some combination to successfully breed the Dragon of the Month.
Can I breed the Dragon of the Week/Month more than once?
[Expand/Collapse All]
Yes. As long as that Dragon is still available as Dragon of the Week/Month, you can breed it as many times as you want for the duration of that period. Breeding extra limited-time dragons gives extra Dragonmaster Pass points, and the duplicates can be ascended for Full Set of Enchantment Materials!
If I breed the Dragon of the Week/Month with less time left on the timer than its breeding time, do I still get it?
[Expand/Collapse All]
Of course. The game will not transform your Dragon into another one, even if the breeding is finished when the weekly/monthly has already expired, as long as breeding began before the weekly/monthly event expired. The breeding result is determined when you start breeding: even if the special breeding period ends, you will still get it if breeding began during the special breeding period and the breeding resulted in a match.
If enchanted dragons are used to breed, will the offspring be enchanted too?
[Expand/Collapse All]
No. Dragons can only be enchanted through the Enchantment Menu or in the Enchantment Altar using specific Enchantment Materials and Gold.


Which of my Dragons is hired by friends for battles?
[Expand/Collapse All]
The highest-leveled Dragon that you have. In the case where there are multiple Dragons at the same level, the one having the highest attack is rented.
Can I rename my Dragons?
[Expand/Collapse All]
Yes. Select the Habitat that has the Dragon you want to rename, then press that Dragon's icon. From there, tap the i button in the top-left corner, then tap the  More Options  button, then choose the Change Nickname Icon.png  Rename  button from the given options.
How do I move Dragons?
[Expand/Collapse All]
Dragon Information.jpg

Select a Dragon to display its information screen, tap the i button, then tap the  More Options  button. As long as a Dragon is not searching Ruins or in the Breeding Den, a Move (Green) Icon.png Move appears on the subsequent screen. Press Move (Green) Icon.png Move, then select a habitat with the requisite element(s) to move it to. If performed correctly, the Dragon appears in the newly selected habitat.

Is there a faster way to pet Dragons?
[Expand/Collapse All]
Yes, tap rapidly on your Dragon instead of swiping.

Technical Issues

What is the Gameloft Player ID, and how do I find mine?
[Expand/Collapse All]
The Gameloft Player ID, colloquially known as the Customer ID, is a code specific to each player in the game and is used by the game developers to identify that player. It is used when sending a ticket to Gameloft in cases where issues need to be resolved or when requesting the transfer of the game progress from one operating system to another. The code can be found by pressing the Options Icon.png button, then going to the     Info     section and then the     About     section. The code will be listed next to Gameloft Player ID.
I added friends on Facebook, but don't see them in my friend list, why?
[Expand/Collapse All]
Platform/server limitation
[Expand/Collapse All]
Your friends need to be on the same platform as you are. iOS, Android, Windows and FireOS users do not see each other. It is also necessary for you to be on the same server. There are only two main servers currently: apa and eur. These servers might be marked with the word gold, but it makes no difference, with or without it, when it comes to adding friends or other server-related events. There is also a chn server exclusive only to Android players in China (iOS and Windows users are still on apa in that country).

To find out the server you are on, press the Options Icon.png button, then go to     Info     and then     About    . The name of the server is written next to Save Data Server. There is also a limit to the number of friends one can have on the list. Currently, the limit is 200. So, even if you and your friends are both on the same platform and server, they will not show up on your list if you have reached the friend limit or vice versa.

[Expand/Collapse All]
When giving DML access to Facebook, make sure you give the game permission to use your friend list. In case you forgot to do it, exit the game. Then navigate to Facebook to access the Apps section of settings, then click on Dragon Mania Legends from the list. In the window that appears, make sure the Friend list option is enabled (a white check mark on a blue background). If this does not work, press the Options Icon.png button in-game, tap on Connect to social network and log your Facebook account out. Thereafter, go back to the same Apps section on Facebook and delete Dragon Mania Legends from the list. Then connect your Facebook account with the game again, making sure to give the game the permission to access your friend list.
How do I transfer my game to another device or operating system?
[Expand/Collapse All]
Another device
[Expand/Collapse All]
The same game may be played on multiple devices of the same platform and server by logging into the same account (through Facebook, Google Gamer ID or X-Box Live) where the progress is stored, using the Connect to social network option from the menu, as long as all devices run the same Operating system.
Another operating system
[Expand/Collapse All]
The game does not support cross-platform play; therefore, there is no possibility to use the same account on a different platform. To transfer your progress to another platform, follow the instructions below:

Method 1 – Inside the game

1. Sign in to the game on the original device
2. Connect the game to Facebook with the same account that you will use on the new device
3. Press the Options Icon.png button and then the Customer Care Icon.png Customer Care button inside the game
4. Scroll to the bottom and choose "My problem is not listed as a known issue"
5. Complete the necessary information carefully
6. (If available) choose "Gameplay Issues" for the Select an issue option, and "Other" for the Sub-issue option
7. Write your request as clear as possible under the Description section, making sure to include your Gameloft Player ID (which can be found by pressing the Options Icon.png in the game, then going to Info and then About) and your Recruitment Code
8. Sign in to the game on the destination device
9. In the new device, connect the game to the same Facebook account that you connected to the old device
10. Repeat steps 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8

Method 2 – Outside the game

1. Access this form
2. Complete it with the necessary information
3. Choose "Gameplay Issues" for the Select an issue option, and "Other" for the Sub-issue option
4. Write your request as clear as possible under the Description section, making sure to include your Gameloft Player ID and your Recruitment Code
5. Wait for a reply from Customer Care, then follow their instructions from there on


Have in mind that, after the transfer is performed, the data in your previous device will be deleted.
Once Customer Care receives your request and your confirmation that you want this operation, the transfer can be performed.

The transfer procedure is not instant and can take between one day and one week, or even longer.

How do I transfer my game from one Facebook account to another?
[Expand/Collapse All]
To achieve this, you will need to know the Facebook ID of both of your accounts. You can use this tool to look for it. Thereafter, you will need to send a request to Gameloft via this form, specifying the ID of the account from where you want to transfer the progress and the ID of the account to which you want to transfer the progress. Choose "Gameplay Issues" for the Select an issue option, and "Other" for the Sub-issue option. Write your request as clear as possible under the Description section, making sure to include your Gameloft Player ID (which can be found by pressing the Options Icon.png in the game, then going to Info and then About), your Recruitment Code and the aforementioned Facebook ID.
Would it be possible to change my server?
[Expand/Collapse All]
Yes. Contact Gameloft via this form, write your request as clear as possible under the Description section and make sure to include your Gameloft Player ID (which can be found by pressing the Options Icon.png in the game, then going to Info and then About) and your Recruitment Code. To have your progress transferred, you will have to include your Facebook ID as well. You can find it using this tool. Be aware that if you reinstall your game after that, the server will switch back to the original one; thus you would have to repeat the process.

If you happen to be in a country that is on a different server than yours, it is easier to switch servers by uninstalling and reinstalling the game while there. The rough distribution of the servers is as follows: countries from Europe, the Americas, and Africa are on EUR, while countries from Asia and Oceania are on APA. Exceptions might show up depending on the player's settings or even internet stability, but, generally, the distribution is respected. One notable is exception are Android players in China whose server is CHN.

Will my server change if I move to a region using a different server?
[Expand/Collapse All]
Not unless you reinstall the game. Server detection is first done when the game starts up for the first time after the game was just installed and then saved. Uninstalling and installing triggers the detection again. For example, if you start the game in any country from Europe, the Americas, or Africa, you will be playing on EUR. If you then travel to any country from Asia, you will remain on EUR because that value is still cached for you. If you re-install the game while in Asia, you will trigger detection, which will switch you to APA.
Can I change my age or gender in-game?
[Expand/Collapse All]
Once you have set your age and gender the very first time you started your account, there is no way to change these values yourself; thus you must contact Gameloft Customer Care.
Dragons and buildings appear as black silhouettes with question marks, why?
[Expand/Collapse All]
Tap the Dragons/buildings in question and download the additional data required by the game. If needed, restart the game.
I have to download 0.0 MB additional data, but the game won't let me, why?
[Expand/Collapse All]
There are several issues that can cause this to occur. The most frequent one is that your internet connection is unstable. Restart the game and make sure you are as close as possible to the wireless router (if you are using a mobile device) and no one else is using it except for you. In case your wireless has a weak signal, use mobile data. Alternatively, you can restart your device and router and retry. If neither of the two works, clear your app cache for DML. For iOS and Windows, you will need to download a cache cleaner from the store. For Android, go to Settings > Apps > DragonML > Clear Cache. If that does not work either, try to delete some unused apps, as the issue might be caused by insufficient memory. In case nothing works, contact Gameloft.
Some features that are normally there are missing, why?
[Expand/Collapse All]
This situation can sometimes happen after a game update. To download the missing features, press the Options Icon.png button, then go to the bottom of the menu and press the Downloadable Content button then press the     Download All     button. If the button is grayed out, it means you have all the available features. Downloading missing features does not negatively affect the game progress (i.e., you cannot lose your game progress by doing this).
