Royal dragons are a shiny version of a Black dragon and have very specific requirements for one to be bred. The pair of dragons breeding must have the 3 dragons breaths (Frost Breath, Poisonous Breath, and Shock Breath). They do not each need all 3 breaths, but the combined pair must have the 3 breaths for the chance of a Royal dragon. Any color dragon has the chance to breed a royal dragon, but the egg laid has to be a Black dragon egg, thus breeding Black dragon will increase the chance since they primarily breed Black dragon eggs.
Due to the requirement of 3 breaths and being a black egg, there is a 5% base chance of a black egg being a Royal dragon egg. Certain traits on the breeding pair increase the chance of a Royal dragon: Sparkling grants a 1% boost, Glistening grants 1.5% boost, and Radiant 2.5% boost. Additionally, if egg itself has one of the 3 traits listed, it will also increase the chance of a Royal dragon. All of the boosts will stack with each other. So, for instance, having glistening and radiant would provide an additional 4% chance together.
Dragons are kept in the Large pens or the Breeding pen at Player-Owned Farms. Dragons need to be feed while in pens. They eat most raw meat or fish. See Fishy mush or Meaty mush for available options.
