Good luck, as you've experienced it is rare compared to blazing but you should still be getting it 20% or so of the breeding times. If you want to try something else try Air and fire hybrid (Blue Fire or Frostfire if you have one) or Cold and Blazing (also Cold and firework, Blazing and Snow, Firework and Snow). Using combinations with the Fire, Air and Cold will give you best chance and shortest fail times. You should only get Snow, Blazing, and Smoke with most of these pairings and will have a chance to get Frostfire from Cold and Fire hybrid or Blue Fire from Fire and Snow.

Once you get your first Smoke and are trying for Garnet, Smoke will be a pretty common fail.

Didn't know it was rare ;_; Thanks timeless, texasted, and deeneez.

Will try those combos as well.

New update here in Dragonvale!

There is a new Hail dragon (Cold/Lightning elements) to complement the Storm dragon. Breeding time of 8 hours. Unfortunately, I don't think anything else has changed...

For simplicity, call me "Ai" or "AK"

New update with the "bug fixes" façade always turns up more down the road.

When will there be any new dragons with the metal element? Or a limited w/ 3 or more elements including metal would be nice.

Got lost on my way to GameFAQs...

Hail appeared for me before the App store update.

Got two Hails cooking. One on the EBI on the third try with Firefly/Storm and one in the EBC on second try with Cold/Lightning. Maybe we'll get an Epic tomorrow, that was too easy. Dragon and display knocked out in a few hours (I used the Kairos after my first attempt.)
