Does anyone know best combo for Blue Moon?

Does Panlong+Storm or Crystal+Snow really have a 50% chance of getting one?

Got lost on my way to GameFAQs...

Well got really lucky and got two leap years right away, so just need 2 blue moons and 2 papers. If I get two of each of those ill be happy. After that I guess I'll go for equinox if there's time. We'll see.

I'm still stuck with EBI bc of that 48hr dragon I got stuck with in the cave yesterday morning.

I think paper may be the biggest pain but we'll see.

Does anyone know if you will be able to breed a second blue moon if you have one even after it expires again? If so ill move onto paper after I get one.

Well since all the limiteds came back, both of my attempts at Apocs have resulted in Blue Moon fails. One Bloom/Metal and the other Lichen/Magnetic.

Yes...I remember getting my Blue Moon egg display after it closed using Blue Moon and Equinox

Congrats on the breeding success everyone. Did you get the two leap years with the same combination? Bluefire and Moss? Wow lucky success for you. Hoping to get a second one as I was only able to get one even with continuous breeding earlier this year.

For Blue Moon, recommend what worked for me Bloom and Dodo or Bloom and Sandstorm. Once you have one you can breed with Solar/Lunar Eclipse for a 50/50 chance on a 2nd. Equinox was one I was unable to breed when released but got lucky on the 4th-5th try last night Blazing and Plasma (or Current will also work).

I too was thinking a major release would happen later this week so I bred a platinum and gold on Monday thinking we had a couple days and hoping for a 2nd platinum. Also got a sun fail before the Apocalypse dragon was released and all returning dragons were unlocked. 2nd Platinum is on the back burner now until after the holidays - anyone still trying you will get one it took me weeks also of rust fails in both the cave and island.

Early Merry Christmas and Happy 2013 to all, looking forward to another year of DV, forums and gem gifting with friends. As compared to others I am looking forward to the return of winter and snow to DV. I like the snow covered buildings, changes to the trees and look forward to what they do with the new decorations they have added this year. The Astrovane, Umbral sculpture and Pillar of Prophesy are all animating together in the center of my 4 seasons island - cool to see them all active.

Looking forward to doing some redecorating over the next couple weeks while making dragons!

Cheers to all, TexasTed

Don't really want to spoil the fun, but this dragon frenzy making all of the limiteds available for a short period of time is quite boring for those of us who already have all the dragons.

On the other hand, the Apocalypse dragon is MAGNIFICENT!

Hope you all get what you need and want. From breeding that is.

And for you Texas Ted, and everyone else, a very merry Christmas too. <3

I am working on an Emerald Egg also - it is almost too crazy having all available at one time. Not complaining at all about a good thing and BFS is definitely benefiting moving from 20 something early in week in Top Grossing Apps in US store to currently #2. With all the new idevices arriving on the 25th it should be top spot when the App store ranking locks up later this week. Good job BFS for the surprises, new and old content!

Nice!

Blue moon is being a pain and a gem waster for me. At least fails have been short so far. But as many as I've sped up I would think I'd have it by now. Hope to get it soon bc I think trying for 2 Papers is going to take awhile.
