Unhatched elemental eggs can be found rarely by Scavenging, or as loot drops from defeated monsters in the Coliseum. When hatched, they give the player a First Generation dragon (meaning it has no parents listed), whose colors and breed are randomly determined; their alignment corresponds to the egg's element. Only triple basic-gened plentiful breeds (Fae, Guardians, Mirrors, and Tundras) can be born from elemental eggs.
When looking for a specific type of egg while Gathering, one must be scavenging in the corresponding territory of the desired element, e.g. Unhatched Plague Eggs are found in the Plague region. Similarly, Coliseum enemies drop eggs of their elemental alignment.
Getting these eggs awards the player with a total of 11 achievements—one for each element. Each achievement is worth 20 points.
Nocturne Dragons are born from Unhatched Nocturne Eggs, which are only available during the Night of the Nocturne event in December. Unhatched Bogsneak Eggs can be brewed at Baldwin's Bubbling Brew starting at level 16. Unlike the elemental variants, these dragons' elemental alignments are determined randomly when hatched. Though, like the elemental eggs, a Nocturne or Bogsneak hatched from their respective eggs will be first generation, and their colors and gender will be determined randomly.
