White Dragons were one of the original breeds first released on the site.

As of May 21, 2017, White Dragons have the Breed Specific Action Ward, which can be used to protect any egg from sickness for 6 hours. Ward has a cooldown period of 14 days.

Breeding a White Dragon with an Undine Dragon may produce a hybrid Amalthean Dragon. They can also breed with Daydream Dragons to make a Sophrosyne Dragon.

Official descriptions[]

Egg[]

This egg has a very clean look; it's completely devoid of dirt and scratches.

Hatchling[]

Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It has bright blue eyes, and is as clumsy as any other hatchling, but it never seems to get injured.

Mature hatchling[]

Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It has bright blue eyes, and is as clumsy as any other hatchling, but it never seems to get injured.

And look! It has grown wings! It must be close to maturing.

Adult[]

White Dragons are pacifists and specialize in extremely strong healing magic. The only limit of this magic is that it can’t bring back the dead. They only eat plants and never kill living things.

Appearance/Basic Anatomy

  • Have a luminescent, leathery hide rather than large scales.
  • White dragons' eyes are a bright, vivid blue.
  • Wings are shaped for short bursts of speed and easy maneuverability rather than distance.
  • Their wings are feathered and soft.

Hatchling Behavior

  • Hatchlings can be somewhat reserved at times.
  • Hatchlings avoid the play attacks other breeds enjoy.
  • White hatchlings love running and jumping games.
  • Pretend rescues are another favored activity.
  • Though they can be as active as any other hatchling, whites never seem to suffer the bumps and bruises common to other breeds.
  • Close observation shows a strong command of healing magic, even before reaching maturity.

Adult Behavior

  • Will avoid fighting back, even to the point of endangering themself.
  • Capable of defensive magic; used to protect themselves in lieu of offense.
  • May heal other breeds (or provide services to humans) in exchange for favors.
  • They do not stay completely out of conflicts; they may get involved to the extent of taking care of those injured or issuing protective wards.
  • Adult white dragons sometimes craft staves by breaking a straight limb from an ancient elm tree, which they then shape by rubbing it against other trees and stones.
  • Staves may also be passed down between generations.

Habitat

  • Capable of surviving in extreme temperatures due to protective magic, though volcanoes and glacial regions are far from ideal environments.
  • Choice of habitat is primarily dictated by their restrictive diet.

Diet

  • Strictly herbivores, and as such, spend a fair amount of time eating.
  • Cannot heal or cure hunger or thirst via magic.

Trivia[]

  • Before the October 2015 sprite update, the eggs were commonly confused with Silver Dragon eggs.
