Day of Dragons Wiki

The Melanistic Kickstarter Skin (also known as the Black Dragon Skin) is an exclusive skin colour reward for all Kickstarter backers who pledged for the $18 "Hatchling" tier or higher during Day of Dragons Kickstarter campaign.

Owners of the melanistic skin are capable of selecting this skin from their main menu upon spawning, and it is useable in any playable dragon species. Non-Kickstarter backers can also obtain the exclusive black skin via nesting if one or both of their parents are that skin. However, only owners of the melanistic skin can apply shimmer to it.

This skin is not the same as Dark Elemental Skin and it does not appear in the Elementals' character selection screen.


Below are the currently featured and known Black Dragon skins and how they look like:
