Do you want a Deep Dragon of your own? I sure hope you can hatch one; there's no hope of ever capturing one in the wild. Deep Dragons dwell in unfathomable depths, down past even the bottom of the ocean floor, in trenches that seem to dip into the very center of the Earth.
How do Deep Dragons survive high-pressure subseafloor environments of deep ocean trenches? And if they're so used to those environments, how can they live comfortably on your Dragon Isle? These adaptable creatures have an internal air regulatory system that adjusts their bodies to suit the pressure around them.
Deep Dragon's large round eyes allow them to pick up trace amounts of light, giving them a sort of 'night vision' to safely swim or fly in dark areas. This is especially helpful for Deep Dragons, as they chiefly reside in scarcely lit oceanic trenches. They could probably fly in the vast vacuum of space! ...if they could get up there.
Don't worry about your Epic Deep Dragon's social skills; they get along fine with other dragons! In the wild though, Epic Deep Dragons are isolated from other dragons and animals alike. Few animals can sustain the harsh aquatic terrains of the Epic Deep Dragons, and those who can are terrified of the astronomical albatross.
By breeding two dragons that collectively contribute Black and Blue to the type pool. If a parent has the appropriate minor types, missing requirements may also be added to the pool, even if neither parent has the originally required types. Minor types that have been split from other minor types can also contribute their component types to the type pool.
DISCLAIMER: When attempting to breed the Deep Dragon, you may get other offspring instead. Check the Breeding Calculator to view all of the possible results of combining a particular pair of parents.
The Deep Dragon has special behavior when it is used as a breeding parent. Unlike dragons with only basic types, it will obey the following rules:
When the Black type is alone in the pool, it will add pure dragons of its component types (Blue and Purple) to the list of possible outcomes, but it will not split into its component types. When Black is included in the pool along with one or more other types, the Black type can split into Blue and Purple. However, if it is split, then Black is no longer in the pool for the duration. Thus, the presence of Black in a pool will either add the Black type if it does not split or the Blue and Purple types if it does split. There is one exception to this rule, and that is when both parents possess the Black type. In this case, Black can contribute both itself and its split colors at the same time.
Although the Black type can split into Blue and Purple for breeding purposes, it still only counts as one type. This is important when considering the number of types for type-amount-dependent dragons such as the Diamond Dragon. Breeding a Forest Dragon with a Deep Dragon only counts as three types: Green, Black, and Blue.
The Deep Dragon's design is based upon the Coral Dragon's, although there are differneces between the two.
