Sapphire Dragon; Mountain + Rain

We have 10 days left to wait and speculate on September's sapphire dragon. It sure would be fun to guess the correct combo before the dragon is released. I have spent some time researching sapphires, looking at available dragons, and thinking. My current best guess for September is iron & water. My reasoning: Iron b/c iron & titanium cause the blue color in sapphires. Water b/c it is deep blue, didn't just come out, and would be something "unexpected". Also, sapphires are found in alluvial deposits which is loose dirt that has been moved around by water. This gives us 5 fails, same as with peridot. Average fail time is 11.2 hours (peridot's average fail time was 11.3.) Anyone else have any guesses?

Iron + Ice. If we're not going to have Crystal as a Fail, then let's have Mountain, Steel and Mine.

Let's not forget about a chance for Rainbow as well.

I'm goin to suggest Blue Fire x Iron, because Forge fails are always fun! This'll leave us with Mountain, Mine, Steel, Scoria as well. And also give us a chance for another friendly 48hr--Gold!

Highly doubtful that this would be the case, but it's a scary combo to consider.

I have a feeling they'll save Ice for the April Gemstone Dragon since the birthstone is diamond.

Anybody else think the combo might be related to that of the Ruby Dragon since both sapphire and ruby are both forms of the mineral corundum?

They'll definitely use Ice for Diamond, but they've already shown they can reuse the dragons for more than one gemstone dragon.

Okay, for arguments sake since the Sapphire is the "twin" of Ruby, let's say they decide to use Chrome again and poor Iceberg has never been used for anything so let's give him a turn. : ) Chrome + Iceberg - and you still have Quicksilver and Rainbow as your long fails.

Yeah, ruby & sapphire are related, but they surely wouldn't use chrome, b/c chrome is what gives the corundum the red color. If it has chrome, it is no longer a sapphire. I really debated which blue dragon to use, and ice and blue fire were both big considerations, partly because of their long fails. I finally decided to do water b/c it would be such a switch to use a pure dragon instead of a hybrid. (Plus it has a deep blue color.) However, I would not put it past BFS to use an opposite element like bluefire, for that too would be a switch. However, it would be hard for newer players.

I liked whoever's idea that rain was released so that it could be used, so I'm going with rain and ice/iceberg. Or rain and crystal?

I'm thinking maybe Iron x Rain. Rain has that deep blue color, Iron has the chemical link, it can generate Rainbow, Scoria, and Quicksilver fails, and it might additionally catch people off guard because Rain was just released.

Plus, we're all tired of Crystal fails. I don't think they want to tire us out too much on that one poor dragon that nobody wants, though I could be wrong. :)

Whatever the combo is, I hope it allows for seasonal and/or olympus "fails"

I wish it would too, but I don't think it will, because I firmly believe that water will be one of the elements.

I have the same guess as txr13, Iron and Rain. I really hope they keep Olympus combos out of sapphire. They are way to common and would use up a lot of time/gems for anyone wanting a sapphire dragon. It would be convient for people needing Olympus dragons but imagine all the 35 hour fail times... It would make me appreciate forge/crystal a lot more lol.

dodo is another possibility, with his blue colour.
steeldragon is another nice blue dragon, and steel is made by castiron.
so you have the blue colour and the iron and titatium.
ruby was really red,(scorch), sapphire will be really blue. (water and rain are really blue, but the steeldragon was made with cold, and scorch is kinda opposite) Am I making sense ??? I don't know.

My guesses are always way off but I am guessing mud because of the earth and water source with crystal

The release of Silver has me thinking it's probably another potential Sapphire fail. But if the guess of Cold as a component of Silver is correct, that means Sapphire would probably be something like Iron x Iceberg (assuming they keep Ice for Diamond in April)...

Unless Silver is Metal x Water, which I consider less likely. :P In which case, my original thought of Iron x Rain for Sapphire could still be correct...
