Ever tried to hatch a dragon and it came out with stats lower than you thought it should have had? Then this is the guide for you! This guide will outline what you need to know to have the highest possible chance of getting maxed stats on your hatched dragons, it is not however a guide on how to acquire or start incubation of eggs. If you do not know how to start incubation of a dragon egg, this link will tell you what you need to know: Dragons Prophet Wiki Egg Incubation Now on to the guide! First off this guide applies to both hatching eggs held by your character as well as eggs hatched in your apartment or house. As you should know by now, when incubating an egg it has a "stat bar" on the second tab of the incubation window which tells you what the current stat bonus is. And as you or other people care for or dance for the egg, this bar will grow a little. And to get high stats on your dragon when it hatches, you want this bar to be as high as possible. What a lot of people do not know though is that the remaining time left on the incubation of the egg actually affects how much this stat bar grows when the egg is cared for(or danced for) The less time it has left, the bigger the effect of each care will be. So the big "rule" is to never ever use a dragon remover(normal ingame ones) at the start of the incubation, but rather you want to wait until the egg gets closer to hatching. If you do use a remover at the start of incubation, you add more time to the egg and therefore lower the effect of each care it recieves, as well as remove the ability to extend it's incubation time if it needs just a little bit more time and a few more cares to max before hatching. Most people tend to wait until it is below 24 hours, how long you want to wait before using your first remover(s) is up to you, as only you can know whether or not you will be at your computer when the time comes. And no one wants their egg to hatch while they are gone and possibly ruining the dragon. When using removers, you'll also want to know how much time using them will add to your egg, as the goal here is to keep the remaining time as low as possible for as long as possible to maximize the effect of the cares it recieves and with that giving you a much better chance of having your dragon hatch with maxed stats. So the times added by each remover are as follows: Green - 3,5 hours (Not 100% sure on the exact time for green, but it's somewhere around there) Blue - 12 hours Purple - 24 hours When using spirit powders however, the items that changes the hatch % of the different rarities, the remining time on the egg does not matter, as using them has no effect on cares recieved. So you can use them whenever you want. And if you use the (Enhanced) dragon removers, which can be bought in the marketplace or are sometimes VIP rewards, the remining time does not matter. As the Enhanced removers remove dragons without adding time to the incubation. Another thing that is very good to know is that not all dragons require their stat bar to be completely filled in order for the dragon to hatch with max stats. Dragons generally come in 2 categories: Common and Rare. Common dragons include ones such as Horned Specklewing Dragon, Savage Wolfwing Dragon, Verdant Predator Dragon and Gelid Sawtooth Dragon. Generally if it has the word "dragon" in it's name it is a common dragon, there are exceptions though (Crimson Blackblood Dragon King being one of the exceptions) Rare dragons in general include almost all of the named dragons, such as Crow Bone, Hookwing, Skitter and Blackblade. The dragon families Fabled Ancient, Ancient, Assault, Hydra, Mythical, Ironhide, Oriental, Duskreaver and Phantom are ALL in the rare category. As in all dragons from these families are in the rare category. And back to the point, dragons from the rare category only need their stat bar to be filled to the second to last "pip" or dot, as dragons in the rare category recieve a bonus to their stats when hatched. Common category dragons do not recieve this bonus, so they need a completely filled bar to max their stats. One last thing that I want to mention in this guide is that not all dragons can be hatched with max stats(6.00/10.44) Some common type dragons will not recieve the max stats even if their stat bar is completely filled prior to hatching. Jade Predator Dragon being an example (from Unhatched egg of Rolling Down) This may or may not be the case here, but on the EU server this dragon can not be hatched with max stats, and there are others as well. Sadly I never got around to making a list of which ones that can't be maxed, but keep in mind that some common dragons can not be maxed when hatched from their default eggs. They might be able to max if turned into an egg using an Unhatched egg restoration luquid however, but I never tested this. (Read edit section at the bottom) Best of luck and happy hatching! PS. This guide is based on my knowledge from the EU server, it should still be applicable here but it is no guarantee as there are some differences between the servers. 2017-06-20 Edit: After playing on this server for a while and collecting some more knowledge here I decided to update this guide with a little more information regarding common dragons and their ability to hatch with max stats. A lot of dragons from the common category can not achieve 10.44/6.00 stats on this server, and using an Unhatched Egg Restoration Liquid and maxing the egg will not give them the maxed stats either.
