See Hatching for more information
The Hatchery is the only place where Dragons can be incubated and hatched. Selecting the Hatchery will bring up the option, which takes the player to the Dragons tab of the Main Shop. Players can purchase Dragons there or send them to the Hatchery through the option, if available. If the Hatchery is full when the player tries to incubate an egg from the Breeding Den or the inventory, a notice will pop up informing them that they need to free up some nests first. If the player purchases an egg from the Main Shop or from the Dragon Codex while the Hatchery is full, the egg goes into the inventory.
Whenever a Dragon is being incubated, its egg will stay still in the nest. Selecting the Hatchery will display the icons of the Dragons in their baby form. The time remaining until a Dragon can hatch will be shown underneath its icon. The Hatchery displays only the two highest units of time, thus the actual time might differ slightly from the time displayed. The icon of the Dragon will have the icon on the bottom, indicating that the incubation time can be skipped in exchange for the amount of Gems specified. Pressing the icon in this stage will bring up a window with a close-up shot of the egg, the time remaining until the Dragon can hatch, and the button. Pressing this button will speed-up the remaining time, allowing the Dragon to hatch from its shell.
Dragon eggs that are ready to hatch will be jumping in the nest and the icon will appear above the Hatchery. Pressing the incubated Dragon's icon will bring up a window where the player can crack open the egg and then either place the baby Dragon inside a fitting Habitat, or inside the Dragon Vault, or sell it on the spot. A text will appear above the baby Dragon if there are no empty, fitting Habitats or empty slots in the Dragon Vault to place the Dragon in. The egg will continue to take up a spot in the Hatchery until the player takes one of those actions.
The Hatchery starts out with one nest but can be upgraded using Gems to increase the number of egg nests, allowing multiple eggs to be incubated simultaneously.
|Hatchery||Level||Size||Eggs Held||Gem Cost||Experience|
|1||5 x 5||1||None||-|
|2||5 x 5||2||150||1,660|
|3||6 x 6||3||450||5,000|
- Update 4.0 introduced the icon to indicate when at least one egg is ready to be cracked open.
