Grow Your Own SAND Dragon
Do you have what it takes to grow your own dragon? All the way from an egg (once you rescue it from the dreaded Troll) to a baby to a fearsome troll-eating beast? We shall see about that…..
How To Grow Your Own Sand Dragon (aka Sabulo)
Step 1 (same for all dragons): Visit a swamp, at night, find yourself a troll. Like this one:
Step 2: Defeat the troll, hopefully it drops a Sabulo egg.
Step 3: Go to the desert and place down your egg below level 50.
Step 4: Wait for it to hatch (it starts to wobble).
Step 5: When it hatches, tame your baby dragon with cooked cactus (green dye).
If you want a “display” egg. You need to progress to Step 3 and interact with the egg whilst holding cooked cactus (green dye). It will never hatch and you can chop it up and place it wherever you like. One for the collectors!
The Sabulo is generally a slower dragon, however in Savanna and especially Desert biomes it will be quite speedy!
How To Grow Your Own Lava Dragon
WARNING: This is not easy. I’m going to regret this, I know it. But at the end you’ll have one of these:
Step 1: Visit a swamp, at night, find yourself a troll, same as for the Sabulo.
Step 2: Defeat said troll, hopefully they drop a lava wyvern spawn egg (or a glacio egg), like this one:
If not, back to Step 1 for you.
Step 3: Buckle up, here’s where it gets hard. Get to level 10 or below, if you attempt to place the egg above level 10 it will instantly dissolve into lava. Wait until midnight, if you attempt to place the egg when it’s not (around) midnight, guess what? It will instantly dissolve into lava. Once it’s midnight (use those generally-useless Minecraft clocks), and you’re below y level 10, place it down:
Note the clock position – that’s midnight
Step 4: Set fire to the block it’s resting on and immediately put the fire out or your egg will burn up. It doesn’t need much flame to wake it up.
Step 5: Wait.
Step 6: Wait more, maybe until morning, maybe until the next night. Patience is the key here.
Step 7: It will hatch! And you’ll have one of these:
Your heart will surely melt
Step 8: Tame it, tame it, tame it! With cod.
Step 9: Wait for it to grow up. It will take a long time, but you will see it getting bigger over time. And it will look super cute following you everywhere. It will grow to one of three sizes, the biggest size taking the longest.
Step 10: Saddle it, armor it (you need netherite dragon armor, make it with a 2×2 netherite ingot recipe). Fly it around! You should be proud of yourself.
If you want a “display” egg. You need to progress to Step 3 and bucket it with water. It will never hatch and you can chop it up and place it wherever you like. One for the collectors!
How To Grow Your Own Ice Dragon
NO WARNING: This is much easier than the Lava Dragon.
Repeat step 1 above (defeat a troll in a swamp, get a spawn egg).
Then, go to a cold or frozen biome, ascend to 90 blocks or higher, and place that egg down. Easy! When it starts to wobble it will hatch shortly. Note extreme hills are not a cold or frozen biome. I know right, there’s snow! Seems cold to me too. Frozen ocean or ice plains are probably the easiest to find.
Tame that baby dragon with tropical fish! You have to wait for the dragon to be fully grown before you can saddle or armor them. Hold a saddle or armor and right-click the dragon (or long-press if you’re on mobile) to saddle or armor them.
Don’t tell me you don’t want one…
If you want a “display” egg. You need to put down a spawn egg as above (‘y’ > 90) and bucket it with lava. It will never hatch and you can chop it up and place it wherever you like. One for the collectors!
