| I got one at the very start, but now the cave is very laggy and I keep getting 'taken by somebody else' when the page finally loads.
|Posted by: Bamboomonkey Oct 30 2016, 11:07 PM|
| I got one, but I have a fast internet & computer
Very interesting looking egg!
Gotta get more later, still have some other eggs to hatch and need to go to work. Good luck everyone!
|Posted by: MadameZ Oct 30 2016, 11:07 PM|
| I snagged one (with much lag)
The eggs look nice!

I'll try to save some extra eggs for you if I manage to get any

|Remind me again how often the cave respawns eggs?|
|Posted by: Amberfly Oct 30 2016, 11:08 PM|
|I am extremely interested in this fuzzy purple egg. I hope the adult is fuzzy and purple too.|
|Posted by: Marie19R Oct 30 2016, 11:09 PM|
| Anyone remember when users were requesting an actual Lagmonster dragon? I still wish that would happen.
Laaaaag. I won't be getting mine for awhile, especially on my mediocre internet.

|*sigh* the cave has been frozen for over 10 minutes for me. wont even let me refresh :c sad.|
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Oct 30 2016, 11:10 PM|
Every 5 minutes
|Posted by: RagaDal Oct 30 2016, 11:10 PM|
|I got one but it's so so slow. Like nearly a minute before the page refreshes. :-(|
|Posted by: Pryanka Oct 30 2016, 11:10 PM|
|I mean when I can get an egg "get" page to load, it says it's been picked up by somebody else. Who are these mythical people avoiding this atrocious lag??|
|Posted by: Jedi40 Oct 30 2016, 11:11 PM|
|Yeah for the new egg|
|Posted by: Niyaka Oct 30 2016, 11:11 PM|
|Impossible on a lagging ipad|
|Posted by: Yunako Oct 30 2016, 11:11 PM|
|Are these eggs actually gettable? All I get, every time, no matter how fast the page loads is the "Sorry, this egg..." message. What is going on? Are these not actually released yet?|
|Posted by: MadameZ Oct 30 2016, 11:11 PM|
|Snagged my second! I can't wait to see the adults! I wonder if it has to do with a raven...|
|Posted by: n.s.c.m. Oct 30 2016, 11:11 PM|
I still hope to own one of the beasties one day. Even though they're annoying I still love Lagmonsters.
|Posted by: Yukimura_Ai Oct 30 2016, 11:11 PM|
|Nope not even gonna refresh i guess i should wait until tomorrow|
|Posted by: Firebirdwyvern Oct 30 2016, 11:11 PM|
|I'll wait till later, time to make some zombies!|
|Posted by: andromedae Oct 30 2016, 11:11 PM|
|Managed to get one!|
|Posted by: Whitefire Oct 30 2016, 11:11 PM|
|Somehow got one, only to get a crashed site on the next page click. Guess we'll wait a bit.|
|Posted by: ientoshi Oct 30 2016, 11:12 PM|
| I've got three and am now egglocked for 12h. It really helped me to turn off images in my browser I think-- my load time was around 6 seconds that way, vs 12 with.
Also! Squee, the eggs are PURPLE! [turned images back on after being locked]. And thorny! And downy! I can't wait to see these guys grow up.
|Posted by: CowlRaven Oct 30 2016, 11:12 PM|
|purple people eater dragon?|
|Posted by: MessengerDragon Oct 30 2016, 11:12 PM|
No, but I read of it and I really wish it would happen! I believe it was shot down for being too technologically advanced though.

|Posted by: Sheriziya Oct 30 2016, 11:13 PM|
| Wow, the cave is lagging big time. I had hoped to snag my fill of Halloween eggs before I have to go to work, but as it looks now I may be happy to snag one
Oh well, I'll get the rest when I'm home for work.
Happy Halloween hunting everyone!
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Oct 30 2016, 11:13 PM|
|I believe it's slowing down?|
|Posted by: igloo9201 Oct 30 2016, 11:13 PM|
You read my mind! That would be the best dragon ever.
|Posted by: PrairieStead Oct 30 2016, 11:14 PM|
| Looking forward to meeting the new egg up close and personal. And collecting a crew of my own.
Thanks-to all the event inventors, artists, and everyone involved in this year's Halloween event. Happy hunting to all!!!
|Posted by: Cthulu Oct 30 2016, 11:14 PM|

|Posted by: Sapphira_Majoram Oct 30 2016, 11:15 PM|
| A miracle! This is the first time I've ever been there for an egg drop literally at the last stroke of midnight and nabbed four out of the gate. O.e~
So I'm still waiting on my current AP eggs to hatch and debating what to use the last eggslot for. I think I'm saving it for a good Desipis egg really. Just need to find one with a lineage up to my standards. -p-
Been keeping it VERY low key this Halloween. Barely did anything and only kept the barest handful of eggs that were the ones I REALLY wanted, instead of something that could complete a lineage or something that I could end up freezing as an S2 later. Also been lackluster in the treats collecting and IDC. I had so much to do of late IRL as it is that I barely did much this Halloween on the site compared to last year.
The game is so tricky for me since my mind is mostly shot from all of RL stuff as it is so I literally do not have the brainpower for it. x.x
Thank you TJ09 and Spriters for this Halloween and the newest egg! I wonder what it'll be.
|Posted by: Niyaka Oct 30 2016, 11:15 PM|
|Ugh, first zombie attempt results in a successful revival!|
|Posted by: Kovia Oct 30 2016, 11:16 PM|
| Oh lol, first two I click on I actually get. And one is a Z-code!
They look pretty freaky tho, not sure I'd want to touch one irl...
|Posted by: Sheriziya Oct 30 2016, 11:16 PM|
| 504 page not found
502 bad gateway
You think the lagmonster has arrived?
Disabled ads to see if that would make a difference, but it really doesn't
|Posted by: CowlRaven Oct 30 2016, 11:17 PM|
| (takes a long drag off my bubble blowing pipe) lag? hah.. "I don't stand a chance", "I can't catch anything with this lag"
this really brings me back... back to the autumn of '10...

|Happy Halloween everyone!!|
|Posted by: BlueMint Oct 30 2016, 11:18 PM|
| WAIT WUT.
Finally caught one! Although the sickness goo/fog wont let me see the egg clearly >.< arrghh.
Thank you to everyone who was involved in this event!
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Oct 30 2016, 11:18 PM|
Wasn't the lagmonster lag like two or three weeks long? It seems preemptive to call this the work of the lagmonster, lol.
Still haven't managed any eggs, but I'm not worried. The cave'll speed up sometime here.
|Posted by: s0r0k4 Oct 30 2016, 11:18 PM|
| Happy Halloween!
Sooo much lag though! Does the cave even work
Though think it's getting a bit better now
|Posted by: FluffyPillow Oct 30 2016, 11:19 PM|
|If lag were eggs, we'd all have our fill by now Not sure whether to keep trying or wait 'til later ^^;|
|Posted by: HEEDLESS Oct 30 2016, 11:19 PM|
OMG.. I caught one.. my BELOVED EGGY looks VERY PRETTY~~~

|Posted by: Tango Oct 30 2016, 11:19 PM|

|Posted by: Vaprrenon Oct 30 2016, 11:20 PM|
|Man, I dunno if I'll be able to get one tonight with how slow everything is. I'll have to hope I have better luck in the morning.|
|Posted by: Cinnamin Draconna Oct 30 2016, 11:20 PM|
|Between my antique computer and the massive lag, I have yet to catch a single egg.|
|Posted by: NoraNora Oct 30 2016, 11:21 PM|
|Got one! Time to get the other and fog them before the angry viewbombers attack|
|Posted by: Yukimura_Ai Oct 30 2016, 11:21 PM|
|Omg i got one off the jungle!!!!|
|Posted by: Niyaka Oct 30 2016, 11:22 PM|
|One disintegration and two revivals. A little annoyed. At least the new eggs are pretty.|
|Posted by: Firebirdwyvern Oct 30 2016, 11:22 PM|
|*flops back against pillows* finally got one...now to work on my zombie. One failure, two dodgers.|
|Posted by: BlueMint Oct 30 2016, 11:22 PM|
Angry view bombers?
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Oct 30 2016, 11:22 PM|
While the best chances are on Halloween, you can try for zombies any time of year now.
I'm waiting for the cave to load a little faster before reviving, myself.
Still no egg. Still not worried, lol.
|Posted by: Kovia Oct 30 2016, 11:23 PM|
|So... a purple egg "covered in brambles"... Anyone else thinking Maleficent?|
|Posted by: alupe99a Oct 30 2016, 11:23 PM|
| 3/5 of my zombie attempts were successful. o_o
This is the luckiest I've ever been on this site.
|Posted by: Sheriziya Oct 30 2016, 11:23 PM|
Nah, it's Halloween. The lagmonster decided to strike hard
Anyway, it's seems to get better now. Still have to catch my first egg, but at least the pages are loading again
|Posted by: NoraNora Oct 30 2016, 11:24 PM|
Sometimes people that lose the egg you grab before them visit your page and send the egg to clicksites in an attempt to get it sick and kill it. Sadly it's happened to me a few times
|Posted by: Yunako Oct 30 2016, 11:24 PM|
|Is the site broke? Should I wait until tomorrow or will a fix be attempted in a bit?|
|Posted by: Laryal Oct 30 2016, 11:24 PM|
|Happy Halloween everyone. What are the eggs for this Halloween dropping already? Hurries to cave to see. Thank you TJ and spriters hope i get at lest two eggs.|
|Posted by: purplehaze Oct 30 2016, 11:24 PM|
| The lag is monstrous! I think I will just go to bed and try again in the morning. I haven't even seen one of the new eggs yet, let alone catch it! Page has timed out several times for me after sitting there trying to load for 3 or 4 minutes.
Lag, lag go away!!!
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Oct 30 2016, 11:24 PM|
With the code "witch", that does seem like a good guess!
|Posted by: MonicaOP Oct 30 2016, 11:24 PM|
| Happy Halloween!! Tons of hugs!!
|Posted by: Tango Oct 30 2016, 11:24 PM|
Yeah but I've only got 10 chances total so I wanted to get one when chances were highest. Also only three of them bred an alt black so far. Ugh.
|Posted by: rampaging wyvern Oct 30 2016, 11:24 PM|
|Sobs only one out of six attempts gave me a zombie.|
|Posted by: igloo9201 Oct 30 2016, 11:24 PM|
| This is very probably not something as bad as lagmonster. We just need to wait a while for things to calm down.
That being said, I totally dub this "baby lagmonster" because I can't do aNYTHING.
|Posted by: azaria Oct 30 2016, 11:25 PM|
| The lagmonster's time has come!
Seriously, though, if a page could load in less than a full minute that'd be nice
|Posted by: TheMysticFrog Oct 30 2016, 11:25 PM|
*SQWAK* IT'S CHASING ME
|Posted by: casprrr Oct 30 2016, 11:25 PM|
| Happy Halloween! I managed to catch one egg thus far, out of about a dozen or so that I clicked on in the first 25 minutes or so. Some serious lag going on...
|Posted by: igloo9201 Oct 30 2016, 11:26 PM|
|I got one, yay! D|
|Posted by: Terces Oct 30 2016, 11:26 PM|

Ohhhhh... Creepy. Thanks for the heads up! Ive had it happen with a 2g prize a year or two ago. My first one too :c Didn't think it happened to holidays(?).
Ill be sure to fog mine.
|Posted by: Firebirdwyvern Oct 30 2016, 11:28 PM|
|Wait, for the Maleficent idea, do you mean the new movie where she had wings? It makes sense, but the downy makes me think of a bird...we got a buggie-dragon, another bird please.|
|Posted by: azila Oct 30 2016, 11:29 PM|
| Man, those eggs certainly look....interesting.
Only complaint is that I'm pretty sure I'm scroll- locked with other Halloween eggs at the moment, but that will hopefully clear up soon. Can't wait to see what these eggs mature into!
|Posted by: linda3.0 Oct 30 2016, 11:29 PM|

|A little less lag please|

Didn't she turn a raven into a Wyvern at one point? Maybe it's a raven-wyvern.
|Posted by: Pryanka Oct 30 2016, 11:33 PM|
|My insane lag has improved to ridiculous lag status. I've managed to catch 3 so far, but it seems like I only manage to catch 1 out of every 3-4 "sets" of 3 eggs that I try to get.|

|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Oct 30 2016, 11:35 PM|
|I think that with more people leaving due to lag, the easier it'll be for the people who are staying|
|Posted by: MessengerDragon Oct 30 2016, 11:35 PM|
|And we'll have to wait for ages for TJ's eggs to hatch now I suspect, because I'm not sure that many people will be giving them views with this lag going about.|

|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Oct 30 2016, 11:36 PM|
|Haha, the lag seemed to have cleared up for a moment there and I immediately locked with five. Another egg will hatch in 18 hours, then I have to hope I get lucky catching my last on the AP. >_<|
|Posted by: purpledragonclaw Oct 30 2016, 11:37 PM|
|Yes, grabbed five!!! I'll grab one more after I unlock. Thank you TJ!|
|Posted by: Pryanka Oct 30 2016, 11:37 PM|
I sincerely doubt it'll affect the timeline for his eggs.
They usually hatch within an hour or two because he starts them off at 4 days? Then from there on, there is always a 3 day countdown once they're hatchlings. I mean at most, this means the adults might grow up an hour or two later than average. Nbd in the grand scheme of things!
ETA - I'm locked now. All things considered, filling up my scroll within the hour wasn't bad! Yeah it was annoying because of lag, but still very do-able. Thankful that I've usually got a fast connection, I know the experience will differ vastly based on what kind of connection you have to begin with.
|Posted by: Storm_Dragoon Oct 30 2016, 11:38 PM|
|OMG I finally got one. Jeeze this is giving me flashbacks to previous lagmonster attacks!|

| Lag is horrendous here, taking over a minute to even load a page. No way I can catch anything right now.
But ohhhh, Maleficent, interesting idea!
|Posted by: Seasons Love Oct 30 2016, 11:41 PM|
If it's any consolation I have business class internet at home - 265 Mbps Download and 35 Mbps Upload and the lag is still a killer - it's site-side, not user side.
|Posted by: Nine Oct 30 2016, 11:42 PM|
| Are those stitches on the egg? Or hairs? Spikes?
Judging by the egg, we'll be getting a one-eyed, one-horned, flying purple people eater.
|Posted by: Yukimura_Ai Oct 30 2016, 11:43 PM|

But how do people find out if you grabbed the egg to view bomb it?
That's the one part I never understood
|Posted by: Fig Oct 30 2016, 11:53 PM|

| Happy Halloween, everyone! I hope everyone doesn't have too much trouble catching these.
I caught seven of them and locked my scroll, so I'm off to create some zombies.
|Posted by: Kovia Oct 30 2016, 11:55 PM|
The URL when you click on an egg gives the code, even if you don't catch it. So they go to another dragon's page and replace the code, and bam, they're on your egg's page.
|Posted by: n.s.c.m. Oct 30 2016, 11:55 PM|
When you miss an egg you still have it's code. There are fan sites that let you add indivdual codes of eggs without even knowing the users scroll name.
|Posted by: a_god_s Oct 30 2016, 11:56 PM|
| Did we break it?
eta... it's back
|Posted by: gigglymonkey12 Oct 30 2016, 11:56 PM|
oh...i didn't even think of that.
But...that's so much work.
Thanks for letting me know. Now I will for sure fog all of mine.
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Oct 30 2016, 11:57 PM|

No they don't.
|Posted by: gigglymonkey12 Oct 30 2016, 11:59 PM|
I would wait awhile and try to fog them asap though since maintenance doesn't usually last too long.
|Posted by: Kovia Oct 31 2016, 12:00 AM|

|Posted by: gigglymonkey12 Oct 31 2016, 12:04 AM|
| I've caught my 4 and now I have to wait for some of my hatchlings to grow up.
If any of you guys have a touch screen computer/laptop...I think it's easier for me that way since I have one finger that's touching the screen and the other hand is holding ctrl when clicking on all three eggs.
Then I switch biome as quickly as possible and repeat
Good night ya'lls and good luck

|Just remembered and nabbed two instantly; good, don't have to wait up all night Will grab more later when I'm not locked with the other Halloween dragons :3 And yay, my first event dragon! Can't wait to see them grow up. Thanks so much for the holiday special! ~ ♥|

| Happy Candy Day, everyone! Have a fun, safe Trick-or-Treating night.
Thank you for the new egg release, TJ!

You can choose a different dragon to kill. You can kill 5 times. The dodges don't count against the total, only the actual kills. Newer adults die easier than older ones. No need to give up unless it was only that one you wanted to zombify.
|Posted by: Jazeki Oct 31 2016, 12:50 AM|
|I'll have to get my other egg when I unlock later. . Maybe hunting will be easier.|
|Posted by: Ripan Oct 31 2016, 12:51 AM|
I''m still considering the possibility of some sort of bird-based dragon. "downy hidden in brambles" just sounds like a fitting description for that.
Lessee... birds with names following "wh"... Predator bird? Or mythological?http://www.mythologydictionary.com/xecotcovach-mythology.html might be a long shot.

| When I get to an area and click on an egg, all I get is "waiting for drag cave", it's just sitting there for several minutes, then I get a msg someone else has already gotten the egg.
I've cleaned my cache, history etc.
|Posted by: Husky51 Oct 31 2016, 12:57 AM|
| Even with the glitch and the major lag I encountered, I managed to grab seven eggs, incubate and gender them...
The Dragon virus will soon be cured and I have my badge... I played the mini-game with trouble, but managed to win enough to aid the Cure drive...
and I got all 54 of the Treats...
Thank you, TJ, Spriters and all others who contributed to the success of this years Halloween agenda...
Trick or Treat!!!
BTW, when I started into the Egg Drop, I only planned on getting 3 eggs if I could, but when I finished clicking like mad, I had the seven... wow...
|Posted by: Flamemynx Oct 31 2016, 12:57 AM|
Nah. Sitting between White and Xeno.
So has to be something between WHITI- (more likely WHO-) and XENO.
Still leaves lots of options..

I could, but I value my other dragons a lot and couldn't even think of killing them for fodder ^^; The one I tried was the only one I wanted to zombify atm (didn't grab enough before hand), though I guess I could try again tomorrow (though the chance will be lower I think, even year round, no?) ^^;

| The lag is strong with this one...
One another note, I now have these Zombies: Drake, Two-Head, Lindwurm Two-Head, Lindwurm, Western and Wyvern. My favorites are the Drake, Lindwurm and Lindwurm two-Head. Next year going to try for the Eastern, Levithan and Wyrm.

| Witch, Peril and Torment...
Another tale says that Lucifer landed in brambles when he was cast down from heaven and thus he cursed them so that they would be ugly. It is said that he hates them so much, he stomps on them and after that, it's unlucky to harvest them. Folklore says this happens on Halloween.
But I like this information... only because I imagine all my Vampires sitting around arguing about whos count was right. "193!" "Are you thick? It was 201..." "Are you both blind? Its..." "Oh... $%@!^ 1... 2... 3..."

And now the cave's lagging horribly. Come on!

I really love the egg design Managed to snatch all six from each biome.
I also just randomly selected dragons I have a few off and tried turning them into zombies and I finally have my first two zombies ^^ https://dragcave.net/view/D52tp and https://dragcave.net/view/oWxot

|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Oct 31 2016, 04:38 AM|
Dragons are released to the cave on the hour and on every five minute mark (x:00, x:05), so make sure you are checking then. Since these are a new holiday, they are disappearing rather quick, and you will have the most luck refreshing on the drop times. ^^
HH - Happy Halloween? I doubt you meant it, but HH does have more... negative connotations, so you might want to stick to spelling it out. ^^;;
|Posted by: Joya Oct 31 2016, 04:41 AM|
Ah sorry didn't now - I for sure meant Happy Halloween

Despite the fact that the lag was absolute murder all night, I finally got my fill of the new egg. I even managed to make my very first Undead dragon! That made the lag far easier to cope with.

Seems ridiculous to me if I may be honest. The site goes so slow in those 5 minutes!!!!! 5 minutes!!??
Why not make it 10 or 15. Seriously. Why not release a little more eggs at the time??
I click on one egg just to see it is gone already, and by the time the page reloads all eggs are gone.
It is disheartening so much.

The last crack stage of the egg is animated.
This egg will only exist for a few days out of the year.
We have no idea if the hatchlings or adults are animated.
"Aren't likely to be accepted" =/= "will never be accepted"

theres 54 treats to collect
|Posted by: lilysally Oct 31 2016, 07:42 AM|
Use an online clock in an extra window, so you can always see it while working on something else. That way you can switch a few secs before the five minute drop.
|Posted by: CellyBean Oct 31 2016, 07:44 AM|
the eggs appear at the 5 min drops and the hourly drop

|Got my 7 new eggs! Will breeding of earlier Halloween dragons end at midnight tonight (October 31st) or will it continue through tomorrow (November 1st)?|

| The hatchling is similar to a collectable
the hatchling and the collectable.

pretty sure it ends tonight the breeding

The only similarity I see is the dark color and a long tail...?
|Posted by: Joya Oct 31 2016, 08:14 AM|
So I have another ~30 to collect, so how often do they come? 10 minutes is it?
|Posted by: Syiren Oct 31 2016, 08:18 AM|
Finally! My favorite night of the year! I'm going crazy catching these amazing eggs. And I just got a 'FogTJ' code!
As soon as I catch 7 of them they certainly will be fogged for protection.

4 other dragons failed and two avoided my attack. This is the part I hate about making zombies.

Mine were dropping around every 10 minutes. I've only had a few hours each day to catch them because of a busy schedule and I was able to snag all 54. I wish you the best of luck with catching yours.
|Posted by: Joya Oct 31 2016, 09:13 AM|
Thanks a lot on your good wishes!
I unfortunately have to go soon for few hours and see if i can have them all when I get back...
but if on 10 minutes it is 6 per hour so obviously I will not be able to get 30 more....

| Ohhhh - code names for our newest Halloweens !
"Witch" is fantastic ! "Peril" and "Torment"... Well, that doesn't sound inviting.
At the moment, being so fluffy with mesmerising eyes the gendered one reminds me of little owls. (Actually I'm not sure if it's fluffy or brambly, but I'm going with fluff for the moment.) Very nice little face ! Cutely spooky I'd call him.
Congratulations, Odeen, on having another holiday release !
Now I'm really curious about the adults ! (And looking forward to all the things Odeen can tell us once she doesn't have to contain her enthusiasm any longer ! )

| 7 thorny eggs, one from each biome plus a spare.
1 for about 7 on zombies though. 1 kill and successful turn, 1 kill and revive, 5 dodged the knife. The Xenos especially seem to dodge well.
https://dragcave.net/view/1f730 a little sloopy though. An infected zombie? Sploosh.

Ooohhh are they going to be ravenous killing monsters?
ODEEN YOU ARE AWESOME!! I always love your sprites.
I easily caught two more eggs just now, so it looks like the lag has backed off a bit. Saving the rest of my egg slots until my friend gets here. I loooooove the blinking eyes on the egg, so cool! And the hatchlings look amazing (although I admit I'm kinda sad it's a dark dragon, I can never make out details on dark dragons).

|Posted by: purplehaze Oct 31 2016, 03:59 PM|
Oooooh! That sounds promising!
Thanks Odeen for what I am sure will be another amazing dragon. I can't wait until we have adults so that you can tell us all about them! The hatchies are adorable.
No, sorry. You can't hatch any of them before midnight. But if you are lucky you may be able to trade for one later. Also some people are dropping the eggs into the AP once their cooldown is over, so in a few days there may be some eggs that you can catch there.
|Posted by: Odeen Oct 31 2016, 04:00 PM|
You will have to either trade for additional hatchlings/eggs or hunt the AP after yours hatch.
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Oct 31 2016, 04:00 PM|
The only way to get more will be to trade for more eggs/hatchies or catch them on the AP once you have some free slots.
Incubate is the only way to make eggs hatch faster, but it can only be used once, so only removes one day from the timer. Eggs cannot hatch before they reach 4d or less left.
You can hazard trying earthquake, which may hatch some eggs (better chances if they are lower time with more views) or may also kill some eggs (and eggs that hatch can result in hatchies running away). If you get any dead eggs, they will take up an eggslot for 24 hours.
So trading and the AP is your best bet. :3

| I bred all my pairs from the previous years. All nice even gens. That must be dozens and dozens of Shadow Walkers (and a few others) that went to the AP. Have fun catching them later !
With that, and the date having flipped to November in my time zone, I'm bowing out of the 2016 DC Halloween breeding, trading and catching rush. Thanks to all the breeders and traders that helped me find the eggs I needed !

Looking forward to the new ones - werewolf dragons, maybe?
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Oct 31 2016, 06:26 PM|
|5/6 of my eggs are from the coast. I should probably go for some other biomes, but I don't want to switch out for lower time eggs, I'm too lazy to do a trade post right now, and I don't see any trade posts looking for biome swaps right now.|

| It's rather funny to me reading all those posts up thereabout trick-or-treaters. The concept is nearly nonexistent in Australia. Heck, most Halloween activities don't really happen here.
Next year I'm at least going to cosplay. Give me like three years and I'll have two perfect for the occassion ovo
And to stick to the thread topic, the hatchlings look amazing! I didn't get to see the S1s, but my dragons will hatch in due course~

| Great Halloween again this year. I got the new eggs, bred some for my lineages and was even able to get a family of pygmy Zombies. I had tons of pygmy's that kept dodging my knife. Fast little buggers! I just bred all my Halloween dragons. Hopefully we will be able to catch more Halloweens in the next few days.
Hope everyone has/had a safe & Happy Halloween!!

| What the heck with that bar?! Last time we loked Spread was slightly winning:/
(well, I did check back to find out to write the following)
Really, what was the point of this entire pseudo'contest':/
The greatest mistake is that we were playing it believing it's PvP while it was neither PvP nor Coop vs All and nobody never knew :/ and worse! it changed on the way! - it was this Players vs Players&Bot for all the event but today it suddenly changed to PvP...:/ Did anyone who's responsible for this really believe it anyhow possible for the spread team to win? Because I don't... It looks like it was settled from the very beginning spread shalll loose (it was predictable:/) - which means they were making fools out of us from the very beginning:/
If you give a boost like that, it should be clear for everyone, what's more it should be counted separately....
Why, why wasn't it a Coop vs All then? Why we were made to even choose sides for this then? Why weren't we all curers fighting a strong bot plague instead?
Really, I hope no more frauds like this in the future even again... those people were destined to be wasting their time... And I mean on BOTH sides...
so many days of being deluded by that freaking slide bar...
really, I can't believe sth like this was made...
Logic? well the logic of the virus spreading naturally is fine if the plague's side is all a bot but definitely not for a supposedly PvP competition which wasn't not even that before a few hours ago:/
At least everything else was pretty ok, the dragon looks great so far, the treats cool, and the new Zombie sprites (though the succes rate was strange and could be higher for others... first I got 15 zombies out of 33 tried with higher and higher success towards the end of the tries but when my killing cooldown was down and I killed the 5 more -the rarest (CB Mageias and -2headed lindwurms)- I got 0 out of 5; meaning a total of 15/38 with just 3 adults turned but not those I hoped for the most, those Mageias costed me a LOT:( Anyway I thought I noticed a pattern of 'the more Zombies you got the higher your success rate is' but apparently it's not true, looking at all 5 last tries were unsuccessful, heh, and I hoped...)
As for the event again, I really hope it really doesn't matter which wins in the end, but it doesn't change the fact how cheated and disdained so many of the players felt because of all the way it was handled...

| I remembered that today DC was dropping Halloween draggie eggs so I went in there and got my 4 with no problem. I also influenced them.
I tried that game but being like the Mine Sweeper one I have absolutely no luck in winning mine sweeper and I find it is the same with this one based on the same idea. I am getting some treats but not all as I have been so busy lately. I don't think I have Sept. egg drops and I can't cb ones as long as the Halloween ones are dropping. Will try getting 2 of them once the Halloween drop has ended.
|Posted by: VixenDra Oct 31 2016, 11:25 PM|
now I want to see what would happen if what I wanted to win would have won - the Contagion. Because the cure's story was very predictable and it prooved so... ^^;
I'd much prefer this was only a story, not a fake PvP competition predestined for the contagion to loose not only due to the bot boost but moslty after the sudden change of the way it's forces worked:(
|Posted by: alupe99a Oct 31 2016, 11:32 PM|
| I seriously doubt anything would have happened had the disease won. :/
It was just a holiday minigame.
|Posted by: azila Oct 31 2016, 11:34 PM|
| Man, those hatchlings do look really cute- I especially love the purple peach fuzz that they seem to have. Still anxiously waiting to see what they grow into, and I'm really hoping that they'll be gorgeous adults.
I was actually kind of neutral on this year's event for some reason? The treats for trick-or-treat were all wonderful (I especially liked the nods to Undertale), and I got at least one of every Halloween dragon (with the exception of vampires, but you can get those at any time of the year ), but I'm god-awful at Minesweeper-type games and it definitely showed during this event. I played the game maybe a total of like fifty times and only won it like four times out of all of those. That's just how unskilled I am.
Still had a lot of fun with it, though, so I guess that's what counts.
|Posted by: MessengerDragon Oct 31 2016, 11:35 PM|
| Disappointed with the event. Firstly, sad there was no official ending announcement, and secondly sad about what was happening with the bar. I feel we should have been told that the spread was being supported through the natural spreading of infection, and there should at least have been an announcement post saying something along the lines of 'the cure team has halted the natural spread of infection, new dragons are now only getting sick due to the efforts of the spread team'. Even better if we were warned of this at the start of the event.
If the lore behind the 'natural spread' affecting the bar was explained on the event page and in the announcement, then I would have been quite happy. As it is, I think both sides feel cheated.
|Posted by: Sylviadragon Oct 31 2016, 11:39 PM|

|Posted by: AppleMango Oct 31 2016, 11:55 PM|
I get what you mean, but I don't think it would have really made a difference. I think the majority of people chose their side based off the badges.
I wish there was an official ending too, but the one in Sock's locking post of the other thread still made it feel a lot more finished for me and I'm grateful Pokemonfan13 wrote it for us

I second that. And VixenDra, you certainly said it!
For what it's worth, I still had fun this year's Halloween on DC. I got 2/6 zombies and a nice pair of purple eggies to go with them (I thought about grabbing more but decided against it). If only the Event was bots vs players... Oh well, all over and done with. Minesweeper is mah jam!

|Posted by: angelicdragonpuppy Nov 1 2016, 12:26 AM|
| I'm still hoping there will be some sort of belated announcement about the event or something. If there isn't then I have to say I'm pretty disappointed. Minesweeper is fun but I was getting bored of it on day two of the event, so finding out I played all those extra games for the cure for nothing when I could've gotten my badge and been done is a letdown. I was really hoping we'd get an announcement for a new BSA at the end--heal if cure won, some type of zombie spreading infect BSA if spread won, with a note that whichever BSA didn't win would still be added eventually.
Standard disclaimer that I know it's a free game and the events are volunteer run, but we've gotten some really wonderful events in the past, so it's hard not to compare to past times. To this day the original haunted house choose your own adventure remains one of my fondest DC memories, and even seemingly more simple things like last year's crazy potions provided more week long entertainment then endless, seemingly pointless minesweeper.

|Posted by: Miranda4everlove Nov 1 2016, 12:47 AM|
|Ey, I didn't think the event was that bad. The sprites were cool, the eggs look nice, and like always everything is free. I can understand why people would get frustrated over the spread vs. cure thing 'cause tbh i'm still confused about how that went about but even so I think the event was pretty good overall. Might be bias since this is my first time actually completing everything and I love minesweeper.|

Don't get me wrong, I loved the trick or treats and the new dragons, it's the minesweeper mini game I'm referring to when I say "event." Just think it could've ended more meaningfully. (Although again, still hoping... )
Either way props to Munin for all the cute event art (and eerie plague description). I especially liked the sprite of the sick red dragon that led to the event proper.
|Posted by: Daypaw Nov 1 2016, 12:55 AM|
| Glad I remembered to go back and pick up my eggs @ ^@ Almost forgot that I still had a bunch of others waiting to hatch and hadn't grabbed them yet.
They're looking super adorable so far O wO
The S1 especially looked a bit cat-like. Since it's Odeen credited on the hatchies, going to sit over here and pray for a black cat themed dragon.
|Posted by: angelicdragonpuppy Nov 1 2016, 01:01 AM|
That's what I love about Halloween: so many spooky dragon possibilities! Much more creatively liberating than Christmas and Valentine themes IMO. Personally I thought these would be vulture based when I saw the initial egg description but with the hatchies I'm leaning more towards harpy or towards no real reference at all, just creative magical creepiness.
Although again they really DO look like flying monkeys... x'D cuter, though!
|Posted by: Joya Nov 1 2016, 01:02 AM|

I'm really sorry you didn't get them all, but the ToT items did drop for the normal full week, and since there weren't any extenuating circumstances to the whole of DC, I do not see the drop being extended. 33 is a very solid number, though! You got more than half. That's quite an accomplishment: congrats!

| While all the artwork that goes into DC is above reproach, I have to say I'm in love with this year's Halloween banner in the ToT section. I mean... whoa. So much detail! The jack o lanterns, the castle, the trees, the sheer atmosphere oozing from it! I haven't seen the dragons yet, but I know that banner is at the top of my 'favorite artworks for this event' list. It must have taken ages to get that subtle shading. Beautifully done and highest of admiration to the artistic genius that made it!
EDIT: Munin is the artist and they should be given much Halloween loot. I just found the credits.

| I guess I can understand how some might be upset about the way the Spread vs Cure was handled, especially those who really got passionately into the battle, but there was so much good about the event that shouldn't be overshadowed.
Munin's art for the event and for the T or T banner is simply amazing! Thank you so much for that.
We had so many lovely little treats to collect. I especially liked the ones by lavaheart. The eggplant jack'o'lantern was pure win, as were the flaming one and the little devil sitting on the pumpkin. Of course there were Odeen's cats, too. And so many others made by very talented artists -- too many to mention individually.
And on top of it all a new dragon that promises to be scary and amazing.
Thanks to TJ and all the team that worked to bring us this event.

|I'm actually incredibly disappointed. I've always been able to get the Halloween dragons and thought that they continued into the morning in the past. Now I've missed out and that's really irritating. I didn't forget, the lag just prevented me from grabbing one at the time.|

I would've gone for more but I've been busy with stupid tests
i even missed trick or treating/scaring people :C

It IS one of the games that comes with windows, you know.... (I've been addicted for YEARS).
Other than the way the game was handled, this has been great. I'm longing to see the new adults.
|Posted by: Pinch of StarDust Nov 1 2016, 08:34 AM|
| Thanks to everyone involved the 2016 Halloween fun!
I can't wait to see what the new mature dragons look like, the hatchlings are tantalizing.
I was able to play the event this morning, as it was saved in a window, until I won and then it was over. I ended up really enjoying it after, with a lot of help on line with live links and visuals, I figured out how to play.
It is too bad though that the event badge was tied to winning a game and choosing CURE or SPREAD. I think that everyone who played without winning before giving up, should get a badge. It was my "stick-to-it" attitude that kept me playing past my initial frustrations and feeling of hopelessness in ever winning a single game.
All in all this was a fun Halloween!
|Posted by: Syiren Nov 1 2016, 08:54 AM|
| This was a great Halloween event. I enjoyed playing the event game and considering I'm terrible at Mindsweeper this actually helped me improve. I had a blast collecting the TorT's and of course going crazy with catching and breeding halloween eggs was fun like always. I got some great lineages and also caught some for my lineage projects. I can't wait to see what these new dragons grow up as, so far their S1 and S2 sprites are adorable and super creepy in an awesome way.
Thanks TJ and Spriters for another great event.

I don't wanna bite any halloween dragons, but I might not have a choice.
I guess I could bred my own to bite...

|Yay Halloween! but the cure won|
|Posted by: Marie19R Nov 1 2016, 12:19 PM|
| I have to admit I'm annoyed at how the game ended. We should have been told beforehand that the cure would end up winning no matter how much we tried to spread. That was a letdown.
But I LOVED getting old Halloweens, and the new dragon is AWESOME, and as much as I hated minesweeper going into this, I really grew attached to the game.
|Posted by: ela Nov 1 2016, 12:24 PM|
| The hatchis look somehow familiar to the Green Goblin from Spiderman
|Posted by: Nightwalkerkey Nov 1 2016, 12:36 PM|
|Awe, good thing I had trades set up, as I missed the whole release and zombies and all! Did the game end special?|
|Posted by: CellyBean Nov 1 2016, 12:38 PM|
nope no special end, no ending at all tbh
|Posted by: Shokomon Nov 1 2016, 12:40 PM|
| I don't know if I agree that the fact that Cure would end up winning that was annoying (it was a given that the disease would remit by the end of the event), but I think what really put people off was the fact that Team Spread was getting extra help, and no one knew. It cheapened both Teams' efforts because Spread thought that all the effort to spread the disease was their own doing, and Team Cure thought they were genuinely fighting against other players to stop the spread.
No one knew what the actual weight of the teams were; it was only revealed after the natural spread assistance slowly died away. And once it did, we were shown that an overwhelming amount of people were on Team Cure, so much so, that it made it feel like there was very little effort on the part of the Spreaders. Hell, we honestly thought there was a glitch going on because of how drastic the shift in power was.
Maybe if we knew from the get-go, we would feel less slighted, and more people would have turned to Team Spread as the assistance died away. Or if there had been no assistance in the first place, more evenly numbered teams would have formed, instead of most people jumping to the Cure Army. Or maybe we could have all jumped to Cure to try and beat back the natural spread of the virus if we were aware there was artificial assistance.
But we will never really know. I guess this stuff will just have to be kept in mind for the next Player vs Player event.
On another note, I can't wait for these guys to grow up! I want to see what they look like. Someone said they look like flying monkeys (like in the Wizard of Oz), and I can't help but agree.
I've also got my vampires now, with one repulsed. Enjoy your new Day after Halloween Vampire.
|Posted by: angelicdragonpuppy Nov 1 2016, 12:41 PM|
Cure wasn't rigged to win (unless by win you mean all the sprites going back to normal, but that was... rather inevitable). Spread was actually getting extra points naturally for the first six days, but stopped getting that boost on the last day, so the final cure win was purely user driven. If no one had submitted either way spread would've won.
Underwhelming finish either way, was hoping to see some official story closure when today started.
|Posted by: Marrionetta Nov 1 2016, 01:13 PM|
| The nature of harmful biological agents is that they spread. Passive infection is a part of actual disease. This is not some ploy to frustrate you, think of it as team cure finally finding a vaccination to fight the disease.
That being said, Odie made an awesome hatchling.

I've never won minesweeper prior to yesterday, it was fun to learn how to play.
|Posted by: Jazeki Nov 1 2016, 01:46 PM|
| Regarding the event, I liked the premise/overall story and the art (badges, story art, ooze design, etc.) What I did not like was that you had to win to be able to get a badge--I would not have won without the help from wonderful DC people--and that it was revealed very late in the game that this was not a true PVP game. I also did not like that this ended rather abruptly without any sort of semblance of a conclusion. I don't know if it was a rush to get the event going or there were not enough volunteers to put a whole story together, but outside of aesthetics (everything looked good), this was a poorly developed event.
There were bugs (which is to be expected--to be fair); the game wasn't intuitive (not everyone knows what minesweeper is or is good at it); there was confusion surrounding what the research actually did and what winning a game did (which led to people thinking that teams got more help or that their efforts were wasted or there was confusion over badge switches); there was a built-in mechanism that skewed results (in biology, agents spread, yes--but this needs to be clear in the story that users are working from); and the event ended rather abruptly without any conclusion to the story.
In the future, I think if there's going to be just a mini-game without any actual outcome, it's fine to not have a backstory. Just make it clear that the players have to win to get a badge.
The trick-or-treating was great as always and I love the new Halloween babies so far. I'm just sad that lag seemed to ruin that for some of the players.

You will need to hunt the AP or trade other users for them.
|Posted by: catmosphere Nov 1 2016, 03:00 PM|
| i'm excited to see the new halloween dragons, but i agree with the critiques on how the event was handled. i'm disappointed that the plot ended so abruptly without any resolve. a lot of questions went unanswered, such as what caused the virus, how the cure was found, if it could have any lingering effects, etc. i did enjoy the little game and the idea of having to choose a side and fight for your team, but i do agree that it felt unbalanced with the lack of a team player count.
nonetheless, i am grateful there was a mini-event at all, and as always the spriters did a wonderful job. 😘

|Posted by: Gruff Nov 1 2016, 05:43 PM|
| Overall, I the event was ok. The greenish overlay on some of the dragon sprites made me do a double take when looking for certain dragons/breeds. I do wish the more "cure", the less of an affect we had (for those who were doing cure).
I do find it an odd coincidence that I did cure and didn't get one dragon or hatchling to come back as a zombie. At least that is what I tell myself .... cure the bad luck.
* I do love the eggs/hatchlings for this years release. can't wait to see the adults.

The only good part about not having had the room for 7 new eggs. I've caught three more lurkers and a pumpkin. Will unlock when a few hatchies grow up in a few hours. Need to calculate when new eggs will probably show up in the AP so I can judge whether to grab more incuhatchables or wait to look for new eggs. xP

|Posted by: Clya Nov 1 2016, 06:12 PM|
| Thank you Spriter's, artists, Tj and mods (I know you all worked hard to keep order!) for the amazing Halloween experience! While I much preferred last years with the potions (seemed like just a few months ago ) the game was fun and the art was amazing!
The ToT event was great, so many neat treats! I love so many of them, it's hard to pick a favorite!
I'm super stoked for the new dragon, I'm hoping for either a witch-raven or a witch-cat, or a mix of both! I'm sad I missed the hatching sequence, guess I'll have to wait for mine to hatch!
Again, thought the minesweeper event was neat, but could use some improvement. I thought it was fun and the amount of enthusiasm from both sides (badges, art, even separate threads) was great! I think it helped bring the community back together/closer in a competitive theme

I can't help feeling that the unofficial ending (unofficial because wasn't posted in the game nor by TJ but still, it comes from one of? the event's creators) suggests that if the spread won we'd have gotten a Zombie chance increasing perk of some sort:(
- the very thing I was thinking about to be possible outcome and the very reason I wanted spread to win - to see if that brings some change, especially for the zombies
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Nov 1 2016, 08:47 PM|
I don't believe an event has ever had any kind of actual impact on gameplay or the cave, so nope, nothing would have changed one way or the other.
Nope. Since so many people think the event should have impacted something, I will reveal that the disease winning text was very similar to the cure winning text.
This event was never meant to have an impact on any sort of gameplay (other than aesthetics and to offer you a temporary minigame).

You'll see the blinky eyes at the last egg hatching sequence, just like in my signature below ^^

Try to trade for the CBs now and keep an eye open on the abandon page. It is possible to still get this years Halloweenbreed as CBs.

| Animated egg...I think we may just get more in the future now *nod*.
One of my Fluff-Brambles has hatched and I have named her...but if I am being honest, this naming system needs some work. It's hard to find unique names without that stupid message saying
'The name you entered is already in use. Names must be unique; try again with a different name.'
Well that name was unique, but apparently I can't use it for what reason? Is it used as part of a name? Is it a single name for somebody's dragon?
I finally settled on Auhoaraa, it reminds me of Aurora and is a nod to the possible Maleficent idea. The fun part is that it means friendship, which probably doesn't apply though .
|Posted by: Jazeki Nov 2 2016, 09:16 AM|
| For those hoping to get Halloween 2016 eggs in the AP, the eggs are still on the 30th. I just checked a marrow to be sure.
Also, all of my eggs have hatched now. Yay!
|Posted by: gigglymonkey12 Nov 2 2016, 09:18 AM|
It is a single name.
If it was a part of a name the message wouldn't pop up
Before I added giggly to the end of all of my dragon names, I struggled to find a name that wasn't in use too.
But usually adding an additional "s" or changing an i to a 1 or stuff like that will work.
|Posted by: Tigerkralle Nov 2 2016, 09:25 AM|
| I checked the wiki to see the eyes and my first reaction was that of a woman seeing something cute. *Gasp* *Aww!*
Now i want to see that on my own eggs! Trying to lurk them out with the promise that they can burn something down just for fun.
I am raising Halloween eggs far away from orphanages and other places that you don't want to burn down.

I came here expecting them to be adults too, though for me it was because I thought it was Thursday today.
+really want to hoard more of the new Halloweens.. sadly I ran out of incubates, so I need to wait until tomorrow to attempt for new eggs. Right now I have my fingers crossed for a trade.
|Posted by: Tigerkralle Nov 2 2016, 10:16 AM|
| I already love the new dragons but i am a little disappointed that we just get another standard-breeding group dragon.
I always am hoping for our first special event Drake or Two-headed. Or another Pygmy breed. Pumpkins are not enough!
TJ should use his magic to made his witch female. Witch is female and a male would be witcher. There exist a few words in English for who the gender is set.
|Posted by: arjunvohra Nov 2 2016, 10:21 AM|
|Ooohhh! I cannot wait for them to grow up! Is it just me, or do they look like the flying monkeys from the wizard of Oz? So cute.|
|Posted by: Kiwiana Nov 2 2016, 10:37 AM|
woha thanks, I totally forgot they are still available!
grabbed 5 fine lineages already and am - as every year - sad again about ugly lineages. I will never understand, why people don't put some thought in their breedings. Wasting a checker lineage with spriter's dragons in it !!! on a totally different not at all matching stairstep-lineage - WHY?
|Posted by: Lady_DragonRider Nov 2 2016, 10:45 AM|
|I was on Valley Sherwood, adding my eggies, when I noticed movement below in the ER, that's when I found out they blink. It is sooo cool and spooky, all those cracking eggs, blinking.|
|Posted by: Tigerkralle Nov 2 2016, 10:47 AM|
There are people who look at a checker or stair or spiral and find that boring and or ugly.
There exist users who really find so named "messy" lineages very beautiful. To each as he/she likes it.
And then messy lineages are sought after for freezing...
|Posted by: Jazeki Nov 2 2016, 10:51 AM|
Originally "witch" was a gender neutral term in English until the 1600s. Etymology aside, I wish Witch was female, too. But I'm okay if he stays male.
|Posted by: Shapa Nov 2 2016, 10:56 AM|
|Mine mostly hatched, so no more animation. That last egg stage was such a blink-and-you'll-miss-it thing|
|Posted by: Leidarendi Nov 2 2016, 11:06 AM|
Remember, this website is still a business. The more people accessing the website, the more revenue generated from the website's ads.
If everyone knew up front that their cure/spread efforts wouldn't matter, they wouldn't have bothered playing the game and thus wouldn't have visited the site so much. $$$$$
|Posted by: Guillotine Nov 2 2016, 11:19 AM|
Witch is still technically gender neutral today, it's just most commonly used for women.
I like that (witch) is male. Let him live his life!
|Posted by: andromedae Nov 2 2016, 11:33 AM|
I'm happy with witch being a male too. I like that his code doesn't generalize gender.
|Posted by: AquaBlueRain Nov 2 2016, 12:02 PM|
|Hatchies all hatched and fogged for safety. Super excited to see the adult sprite. And glad there is still a Halloween wall in the AP!|
|Posted by: StellarWing Nov 2 2016, 12:09 PM|
The event text stated from the get-go that no permanent changes would be made to any dragons. There was never any illusion that something would come out of it.
And it was entirely possible for the spreaders to win, there were just a lot more people doing cure.
|Posted by: Marie19R Nov 2 2016, 12:19 PM|
|One of mine hatched while I was sleeping! I didn't get to see the blinky eyes, but hopefully I'll be able to see it in the rest of my eggs. I've seen some in the hatcheries, though, and they are so awesome!|

Yaaas his name is Witch and he wants you to respect his life choices.
|Posted by: Dianacat777 Nov 2 2016, 01:28 PM|
While I'm not bothered by how spreading was handled, I am disappointed in the lack of an ending announcement. Not that I expected anything to change, but just because it lacks closure. What exactly happened? What was the virus? What would it have done? It's strange to have it just... go away, without any kind of fanfare.
|Posted by: digipup Nov 2 2016, 01:38 PM|
| Woah, did anyone notice that the egg sprite with a large hole in it is a gif? Every so often, a little pair of white eyes blinks from the gap ........... Have the "hole" egg stages always done that?
Edit: *Reads thread* Nope guess not. Heh. I saw the tail end of the blink animation when I scrolled upon my scroll page, and I was so sure I had just been seeing things. That's a very nice touch.

Looks like AP are all soo delicious... If only I had spaceee. I haven't seen any born on the 31st yet come through, so there's lots more to come.
Edit; aw I see badges, but I didn't get one. What were the requirements, did you have to be there on the 31st? x-x I usually never miss Halloween but I was so busy!

Two. If you chose cure you get the cure badge, if you chose spread you get the spread badge. I went spread and got a little virus. Not sure what cure is.

| Ah. A little caduceus. Makes sense. Still like the spread badge better so glad I went with that.
... Just realize those of us who went spread, we're not totally bereft. The new types of zombie could be due to the infection. Maybe that's why pygmies and drakes can be zombies now but couldn't before. (Is totally making stuff up, but that's OK. ;p)

Can't wait to see the adults!
|Posted by: Lurhstaap Nov 2 2016, 04:04 PM|
| I didn't find any prizekin and only one G3 SA-kin this year yet. Blah! But the AP's not to the 31st last I looked so I guess there's still hope.
Found a surprising number of Caligene x Gold though. That must've been a really common pairing, even considering how common it is to breed Gold x Holiday in general. Or else RNGesus just felt like throwing Goldkin at me.
Also, Monarch x Halloween! Gorgeous, but so many of 'em! Then again, I can see why. Very nice combo.
Had very bad luck with the zombies this year. Only one success. I do have a two-head zombie now, so yay, but I've got a long way to go to finish my collection!
Am I the only one who is somewhat reminded of spiders by the new '16 Halloweens? The whole cottony soft thing being found in brambles, and the look of the egg, and the way the S1s are all thin and dark. We'll see with the grownups tho'.

|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Nov 2 2016, 06:00 PM|
Well, they should grow up when they have about 4 days left. If you click the ones in the first post, the oldest is at 4d 12hr left. The other two are at 4d 13hr left, so should become adults very soon after the first (witch). So in half a day, we shall have adults. =)

| Holy bananas! If you use fansites, make sure you take some time tonight to let at least one of the ERs refresh. They're quite overloaded right now. =o
Keeping my eyes out for another new egg on the AP but I've never been able to catch new holidays on the AP, so not too optimistic. =p
|Posted by: Kovia Nov 2 2016, 09:54 PM|
Agreed. Only having a few animated makes them stand out too much, but making too many of them animated would just make the scroll way too busy.
Think my problem with this is we still have a medieval scroll theme going on, which I like. This isn't Harry Potter, we don't have magic moving scrolls. I'll put up with the eggs, but any animation on hatchlings or adults is going to bug the ever living out of me.
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Nov 2 2016, 09:57 PM|
A few special cases (simple hatching sequences, holiday eggs, etc.), I don't mind, but overall I agree. I def don't want it to become a common thing. And if the animation was anything like your avatar, I'd 100% have to avoid the site around the release (and I don't even have epilepsy).
Trying to help out fansites, so my computer is not doing well actually loading anything right now. Will either have to give up hunting for new eggs or give up on the fansites until I catch at least one more new egg.

When I wake up in the morning I'll get to see what the adults look like! Exciting!!
|Posted by: saltywench Nov 2 2016, 11:10 PM|
Yes, I've seen several, I just can't catch them.
I found some brilliant lineages to help my own projects today. I would be able to grab even more eggs if some of my hatchies will grow the heck up. I'm up to 30 dragons, breaking my own record this year! I wonder how long this will last, or if TJ is just going to cut them off at some point.
If you catch an egg an then abandon it back to the cave, does it get another day, or just show up right away again?

They show up on the AP immediately. I've caught an egg from the AP, re-abandoned, caught another, abandoned that one, and accidentally re-caught the original one.
|Posted by: Nightwalkerkey Nov 2 2016, 11:14 PM|

|Posted by: gigglymonkey12 Nov 2 2016, 11:34 PM|
I've seen some say they've caught a full set.
|Posted by: Pryanka Nov 2 2016, 11:35 PM|
The eggs in the AP right now were bred roughly 70 hours ago (22 hours to 5 days, then 48 hours for the 2 days to count back to 7 days)
That means the eggs in the AP were bred roughly 2:30AM on October 31, when there was still 22 hours of Halloween breeding left at that point.
If an egg was bred at 11:59PM on October 31, I think it's been like 48.5 hours since then. That would leave its timer at 7 days minus 2 days 30 minutes, or 4 days 23.5 hours still.

I mass-bred and auto-dropped 71 eggs in the last hour of Halloween. Some of the first ones are now at 4 D 23H. I'm actually hoping I can catch one of my own as I now need it LOL
|Posted by: Nightwalkerkey Nov 2 2016, 11:46 PM|
| Wow that's awesome (to me at least)! Lots more halloween to go!
I just ap'd some hatchies I didn't need-out of freezes! Wonder how many others grabbed, hatched, and ap'd.
|Posted by: Siliskor Nov 2 2016, 11:54 PM|
The 200+ I sent to the AP vary from 4d 16h, bred at 4:03 pm, to 4d 22h, bred at 10:22 pm on the 31st.
|Posted by: FluffyPillow Nov 2 2016, 11:55 PM|
|hehe As eggs hatch (and hatchies grow up) I grab more to take their place (locked again) This is fun! At this rate, I'm going to run out of influences and incubates|

|I'm late! I got busy and stuff. Happy late Halloween! Nice new eggs.|
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Nov 3 2016, 12:12 AM|
| I hated to see it go because chances are low I'll even see another one, but I couldn't pass up a trade for a new Halloween asking for an aeon when I was lucky enough to see one in the cave the other day. So now at least I have seven!
Still refreshing ERs, but it doesn't seem we're making much of a dent yet. Too much of a continuous flow of ERs, I guess. =p
|Posted by: Cielmuir Nov 3 2016, 12:49 AM|
| Aye, it would be fantastic if anyone with spare processing power could visit a hatchery or two! My new Halloweens could have hatched hours ago, but there's just too many things in the ERs and not enough people viewing
I really want mine to hatch so I can start helping clear out the AP!
|Posted by: Pryanka Nov 3 2016, 01:09 AM|
I've been wading through the AP and haven't seen a new egg show up in the last 2-3 hours that I've been checking it
|Posted by: Laryal Nov 3 2016, 01:23 AM|
I have put all my eggs in the er but it is slow getting the eggs to hatch.Wish more people were on to help out.

Nice dragon, I just want to wait for the female, now
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Nov 3 2016, 06:01 AM|
| Witchlights! With their eyes, how did I not guess that?
Very unique. I like their description. Can't wait to see the female sprite!
w00p! Got some lucky catches looking for a cb gold/silver to trade and was able to trade those for new Halloweens instead. First year I'll have more than seven. I have an even 10 right now! =D

| Cool male adult! The breed description is the really cool part for me though. I wanna see what the female looks like as an adult. O.o GROW UP BBY >^>
Thanks TJ09 and spriters for this amazing Halloween release! <3 Now I need to go to bed already lol. Busy day tomorrow.
Ps. glad I don't have to use my dragons as zombie fodder. I was worried when there was speculation it might be a spider-based dragon. There's some things that MIGHT look like multiple eyes of a spider but aside from that I don't have any worries now. :3 Yay! Love the egg blinking gif the most man. o.o~ Now if only I could collect THAT sprite entirely and not have it fully hatch forever or just be kept that way forever as well. Wheee~

|Posted by: igloo9201 Nov 3 2016, 07:37 AM|
| As soon as I saw these guys' description, I thought of this:
Can you imagine conflict between Witchlights and Spirit Wards?
Travelers are walking along, and they can either be
-found by a Witch Light that wants to lure them into the woods and mess them up for life (or kill them).
-found by a Spirit Ward that will protect them till they're safe.
Would a Spirit Ward be able to banish a Witchlight? Maybe they're actually the evil things that SWs are so notorious for protecting people from. People assume it's "evil spirits" or some other spooky thing, but maybe it's actually been Witchlights most of the time.
Although, Witchlights stay in remote areas, but still. I wonder how often these two come in contact with each other.
People were speculating on a "dark form" of Spirit Wards when they were released, and this honestly isn't far off.

|Posted by: Laura-Borealis Nov 3 2016, 07:48 AM|
| They're really beautiful, thank you so much Odeen!
Their faces remind me of certain kinds of raptors, and I adore those luminous green spots, and the bramble-antlers. Their description puts me in mind of fey creatures that lure travelers astray with will o' the wisp lights. Very spooky and seasonal

|Posted by: aisudesu Nov 3 2016, 08:14 AM|
Based on this, they would/could be "sworn" rivals.
If you bred them would be even more ironic since one would like ruin you for life and the other one would be "" the angel"" that is supposed to protect you - literally breeding death with life.
|Posted by: WestWindReborn Nov 3 2016, 08:25 AM|
|Haha, I love how these guys look like caligenes that fell in a pool of mutating ooze. I know they're not, but its kinda fun to think the two species might be cousins. the gendered hatchies are so squeeable, I'm freezing a bunch next year.|

|Posted by: Firebirdwyvern Nov 3 2016, 08:43 AM|
| Is it just me, or did anyone start thinking of Mismagius when reading the description? In one episode of the anime, a Mismagius created an illusion and its eyes were glowing in the process.

|Posted by: Odeen Nov 3 2016, 08:58 AM|
- Witchlight dragons are consummate opportunists, subsisting quite well on carrion when no fresh prey is available to them. Their strong digestive systems allow them to consume even rancid meat with confidence, and they will eat every digestible part of a kill - including the bones. Because of this, the victims of Witchlight predation have often been said to vanish into thin air.
- These nocturnal hunters have adapted to a lifestyle of stealth. The soft feathers coating their bodies muffles the sound of their movements, and they are not known to growl or roar at all. A Witchlight will huff or snap its jaws together when excited or irritated, but will otherwise remain eerily silent.
- A Witchlight dragon's illusions will tailor themselves to the unique fears and comforts of individual prey, presumably by playing off their own perceptions and weaponizing them. Some may be lured into oblivion by fantasies of warmth and safety, while others will be taunted with manifestations of their own paranoia and insecurity. Whichever form the magic takes, a Witchlight will not strike down its prey until their resolve is thoroughly broken.
- While Witchlight dragons are perfectly capable fliers, they hunt on foot and reserve flight mainly for the practical matter of traveling. The exposed leather of their wings makes too much noise in motion to be useful for stalking and ambush.
- The glow of a Witchlight's eyes and markings has an inherent alluring quality to it. They are capable of controlling the extent to which their eyes and markings glow, and use those in conjunction with their illusions to lure prey. However, they cannot control their own glow while they sleep: in order to remain hidden in their bramble-thicket nests and prevent their glow from attracting unwanted attention, they will wrap their wings tightly against their sides and tuck their heads under the sheltering darkness of their wings.
- Witchlights are solitary but not necessarily ornery. They make doting, attentive parents and will visit members of their families long after they've grown and established their own hunting grounds. Mother Witchlights will meticulously coat their newly-laid eggs with downy feathers preened from their own bodies in order to keep them warm and protected from the elements.
- It was once said by a particularly fortunate traveler that Witchlight dragons enjoy scritches, but few have dared to test that claim.

|Posted by: Lexadin Nov 3 2016, 09:12 AM|
| I had a feeling they were going to be witch based (not at all because one of TJ's dragons has the code Witch). Anywho they look awesome and I'm glad I got 7 of them. They also kinda remind me of Owls, considering they also use their feathers as a silencer.
Also I'd like to compliment the egg spriter(s), they have my favorite hatching sequence.
|Posted by: Laura-Borealis Nov 3 2016, 09:20 AM|
| I am loving the extra information
Are they partly inspired by lammergeiers? They're also known as bearded vultures, and really beautiful birds. They too have digestive systems capable of digesting bones. The coloring is very different, and of course lammergeiers don't lure travelers astray in the woods... but it's thought that a lammergeier killed the Greek playwright Aeschylus by dropping a heavy bone on his head, so they do have a dangerous reputation
|Posted by: dustpuppy Nov 3 2016, 09:22 AM|

But, but, but....yeah a site like that would be doomed to disaster lol. I've been meaning to change my avatar but I really don't know what to change it to. I think the avatar was my first thing I animated in photoshop and I was pushing how fast the animation would go.
I just checked the fansite I used and yeah 2,000 ER eggs is a bit much. I just hope I don't see any adult sprites by accident on there because I like to see mine be the first ones I see.
|Posted by: alupe99a Nov 3 2016, 09:57 AM|

Also I totally called it. Witch dragon.
|Posted by: Odeen Nov 3 2016, 10:13 AM|
There is a lot of bird in these - mainly raven and owl - but I did keep vultures in mind when fleshing out the concept. Aside from that they're also based on (yes) witches and will-o'-wisps.

After, especially for holidays where there isn't any way of knowing what was picked until the moment it happens. For regular releases I admit I'm usually just lazy or busy. I started this one two or three days ago.
|Posted by: arjunvohra Nov 3 2016, 11:27 AM|

|Posted by: Marrionetta Nov 3 2016, 02:09 PM|
Odd as in atypical for a halloween dragon or odd as in they are done poorly?
Because if y'all zoom in they fabulous
|Posted by: Niyaka Nov 3 2016, 02:17 PM|
Not at all poorly done, but the feathers (along with the face shape) give more of a gryphon vibe than dragon.
|Posted by: omgitskairi Nov 3 2016, 02:20 PM|
|Ooh, the new adults are really cool-looking!|
|Posted by: TheCompleteAnimorph Nov 3 2016, 02:22 PM|
|I just wish they had feathers a bit further onto the face, but that's a design thing and they're still quite pretty.|
|Posted by: Ashikara Nov 3 2016, 02:29 PM|
|They're perfect... and purple.|
|Posted by: Nine Nov 3 2016, 02:44 PM|
| Hmm, they're okay. I like the concept art a lot more-- I think it shows off the design and colors better than the sprites. Not that there's anything wrong with dynamically posed sprites, I normally love them, I just don't think the male pulls it off 100% in this case. His antlers stick out a bit for me, I think because they don't have distinct outlines. Dragons with long, skinny tails don't always work for me either, I tend to like more muscle and form.
The description also suffers from a bit of purple prose, imo. I can appreciate the mood the description is trying to set, but it can come across as being over the top. I'd think "...beguile their unsuspecting prey into peril by assaulting their perceptions of reality." and "stoking the fires of paranoia with masterfully-conjured illusions" would flow a lot better if they weren't in the same sentence. It's a lot of colorful descriptors as is without combining them.
I like the green parts of the design and wish they were a bit more prominent on the chest. Black, purple, and green is a nice color choice and the inspiration from will o' wisps and the like is great. Female is definitely my preferred sprite, she manages to look subdued but still threatening. Overall, probably near the bottom of my favorite Halloweens list (Marrows and Caligenes set the bar high) but they're not terrible or bad looking. Maybe they'll grow on me despite the things I dislike, like the Cavern Lurkers have.
|Posted by: Syiren Nov 3 2016, 02:46 PM|
Aside from the epic eyes I agree.
|Posted by: Shokomon Nov 3 2016, 03:03 PM|
OHHH!!! Witchlights! NIIIIIIIIIICE!
They look great! I think my fave is the male though.
They will look good with Caligenes. Too bad we have to wait a year to bred them.
What am I going to name these guys though? My Magi's got the Witch names, and my Shadow Walkers got the Will-o-wisp names...
Maybe Death Eaters?
I really do like these though.
|Posted by: andromedae Nov 3 2016, 03:07 PM|
|Are these babies tall, short or medium in comparison to the average dragon? In the concept art they look a little bit short, but that's just me.|
|Posted by: Lindy Nov 3 2016, 03:13 PM|

|Posted by: lanette Nov 3 2016, 04:47 PM|
| These guys look pretty cool. Anybody have any ideas on what would look nice on a lineage bred with these guys?
|Posted by: Mlu Nov 3 2016, 04:49 PM|
| A BIRD DRAGON!!! A BIRD DRAGON!!! Silent as owls?? Preen themselves?? LOVE SCRATCHES ON THE NECK???? BIRDS. And i looooveee birds. It is a strange coinsicende that the first three days of the breeding season i was not home, watching someone's pet Cockatiel??? Nggghhhh biirdss
I love these uys cause they're very reserved and quiet but so caring for their own and their lore is all around terryfying. It's like they're the best friends ever as allies and the worst nightmares as foes I LOVE IT.
Makes me think that no one knows of cases where Witchlights have human owners because Witchlights love to stay hidden too much! So it's like Humans who raised Witchlights would visit them somewhere in secrecy on / closer to the Witchlight's hunting grounds. I can imagine owning them is like owning huge birds !! And those illusory powers, what if Witchlights would sometimes use them to brighten their owner's mood if they weren't feeling ok, kind of like in the television series The 4400 that lady makes illusions for Tom.
These guys are great! But I may just be bribed because i adore birds and when it comes to scary topics, the topic of silent, unpredictable monsters is by far my fave and torturing via mind games is just about one of the most terrifying concepts imaginable, where you slowly, without acknowledging it, drift further and further away from sanity, having absolutely no chance of saving yourself without external intervention.
I kind of completely forgotten about the sprites itself, those are top notch too, I'm just, swooned by the lore and that reference sheet, aaaah.
|Posted by: Natakiro Nov 3 2016, 04:57 PM|
| Love these ones! The males are super cool. Love their lore, too. Just amazing overall ^^
And the egg is the best, love it peeking out. Having 7 eggs in a row doing that was so cute. Is it the first animated egg?
|Posted by: Phioxse Nov 3 2016, 04:58 PM|
Best picture on the internet.
|Posted by: Mlu Nov 3 2016, 05:07 PM|
| More Witchlight thoughts:
- how do they keep their antlers from getting caught up in all the brambles they prowl through / sleep in.
- I noticed their feather placement reminds that of rats / mice (feet/tail naked). Not very informative observation but nonetheless, here it is.
- What if Witchlights raised by humans leave their owners as soon as they can hunt and fly, travel into remote locations like it is described, but they are always extatic when their owners come to visit them (although Witchlights themselves likely don't go out into human territory in order to visit their owners). Imagine an owner and their friend traversing a desolate forest in the dead of night, the owner calling for their dragon while the friend doesn't know it is a Witchlight, when they see soothing lights in the dark the friend recognizes them as dangerous and urges the owner to get out of here only to see that out of the dark a Witchlight jumps out to greet its owner and nuzzles them like some lost kitty.

|Posted by: fuzzbucket Nov 3 2016, 06:37 PM|
What is it you want ? I make my own, but I'm not sure why it would be hard to do one - I just use tables in word, and merge cells all over the place.... Or you could do it in a spreadsheet - just outline the cells you need to use, and then print what you get...
I am just reeling in relief, having remembered about precog JUST in time to be able to correctly influence an egg; I was frantically trying to keep it from views but also alive while getting its potential mate to gender - and then I remembered. And there I never thought it would be that useful !

|Posted by: Denwayasha Nov 3 2016, 09:19 PM|
| Oooh neat! They're so purple and floofy! I can see how people are reminded of Pokemon such as Spiritomb or Mismagius, but what with the glowy green eyes and raven theme and how they can show others their worst fears I'm reminded of Professor Screw-Eye from "We're Back".
Now.. reading the breed description and extra info I wonder who would have the upper hand in a hypothetical encounter between a Desipis, a Caligene, and a Witchlight??
|Posted by: angelicdragonpuppy Nov 3 2016, 09:34 PM|
I was thinking about this too personally I'd put my money on Desipises, as they actively can control minds rather than just make illusions and are so full of mana. Caligenes would probably lose to both because, even though they have a draining effect on things around them, it sounds like a rather slow and subconscious process rather than a direct killing tool.
Of course, all three might be in trouble if a few friendly bigger dragons and a Cassare showed up to fight them :'D
|Posted by: Odeen Nov 3 2016, 09:36 PM|
The Desipis might have trouble fighting off a Witchlight if it didn't know the Witchlight was there...
|Posted by: Leashedragon Nov 3 2016, 09:37 PM|
| Haven't taken the crown of favorite Halloween, but I do like them. Marrows are still my top though.
Also, thank you to the late breeders. I completely missed the 2015 Halloween dragon as I was packing, packing my cubes, picking my boyfriend up from the airport and just generally really busy getting ready for my move from PA to NE last year at this time and completely forgot about the release. Just locked with a bunch of gen 2 Calignea after watching the AP for about an hour. =3
|Posted by: Amberfly Nov 3 2016, 09:45 PM|
I think this picture is the best thing about the release.
I like these. I wouldn't say I love them, but they might grow on me--it's happened before. I also get more of a gryphon vibe from them than dragon. On the other hand they're fabulously done, I really like the description, and I love that they're purple. I've been wanting an awesome purple Halloween for years (Lurkers look closer to black on my screen).

| Really sucks I wasn't able to catch my own this year. I was able to do the event and waited for the new release, but I completely got distracted with my boyfriend visiting and a family wedding, uhhh.

Could wish for a bit more green and a brighter shade of purple, but that's just personal preference stuff. Awesome new breed! Can't wait 'til mine grow up and I can begin breeding them.
Also, yeah, the Mintkin Apocalypse seems slightly excessive. Normally, this kind of thing doesn't bother me, but are there really homes for this many?

If you mean the new Halloween eggs, check the AP, the Departures thread, and the Holiday Trading thread. Also, if you are on any other forums that have a DC thread, check there as well. Good luck!
In the future, remember that Halloween dragons are unlike Christmas and Valentine dragons; w/ the former, you can fill all yr empty egg slots, but they only drop for 24 hrs on Halloween itself.

|I'm sorry to ask a question that must already have an answer, but can someone tell me how long we are able to pick up and breed the halloween dragons? I am full on hatchlings right now but am curious if I will still be able to pick any more up when they have grown or if the event will be over. Sorry I am new and tried to search for the answer to this and really couldn't figure it out and don't have time to read through the 56 pages here|
|Posted by: Amazon_warrior Nov 4 2016, 08:41 AM|
You can't breed any more now (breeding finished on the 31st), but you can pick up more from the AP or trade for them for as long as the backlog lasts.
|Posted by: AppleMango Nov 4 2016, 08:41 AM|
Yeah there is less because they came out only last year. Probably contributes.
I saw a wall of graves for a little while, that was surprising they normally go really fast.

| I'm hatchie locked with 21 who don't even have wings yet. The egg times will be up before I can grab more. We may end up in a neglected dragon situation with this many eggs left. Or do they run wild when they get below a certain time on the AP?
Lets do this for Christmas too. Just breed and breed and breed. WOOOOOOO

| Been a long time since I was http://i.imgur.com/7U48GLW.png, it is almost beautiful to see so many of them all at once.

|Posted by: Trickseh Nov 4 2016, 12:51 PM|
| They look absolutely BEAUTIFUL OMG I only picked up two cos I i only had 2 slots left but I kinda wish I was able to pick up more. At least I influenced them so hopefully I'll be able to breed them.
Are these dragons only breedable during halloween?
|Posted by: Chibi Chan Nov 4 2016, 12:53 PM|
|Ahh, thanks for the clarification! I knew the new halloween babies were a 31st only thing but I've also been excited to pick so many cuties up from AP and didn't realize they were all only born on the 31st as well!! I am also locked and sad to know it Still, I almost got one from each year so that is really exciting for a newbie <3|
|Posted by: fuzzbucket Nov 4 2016, 12:56 PM|
I bred ALL mine that didn't get done for lineages or requests late on 31st
And I just checked - my eggs (all EG, by the way ) haven't hit the AP yet - though they ARE now at 3 days 6 hours, so - any minute now, I guess !
I too am hopelessly locked !
@ trickseh - they will only breed Hallowe'en dragons during the Hallowe'en season, but you can breed them to other dragons between times.
|Posted by: Tigerkralle Nov 4 2016, 12:57 PM|
Halloween Dragons can only breed an egg of there own breed during the Halloween breeding season (one week per year) but you can breed the mate's breed all year 'round except the breeding season for Halloween. This is true for Halloween breeds, Holiday breeds and Valentine breeds.

There's tons of people offering trades right now. I didn't even have to go hunting for anything specific for the four extra I traded for.
I went hunting in the cave for a gold or silver, but couldn't pass up aeon, paper, or purple dino I saw (locking myself). Later when I was browsing trades, one person was asking for 1:1 with a cb aeon and then another had three up for grabs and wanted cb offers (I offered both the paper and dino - things they didn't have on their scroll) and my offer was accepted. There are plenty of people looking for specific Halloween lineages (seen a lot of requests for 2nd gents from GoN, gold, and silver among some other random pairings) that you could probably find with just a little fishing through the AP. You could also try grabbing some checkers or 2nd gens from the AP and offering them up. ^^
I get some witchlight adults in five hours! *dances*
|Posted by: Sapphira_Majoram Nov 4 2016, 06:51 PM|
| Mine grow up in five hours!
Are these drakes or just dragons with antlers? DO we even have a Drake Halloween dragon at all...? From the size comparison it seems like small dragons than anything but not dog-sized Drakes....
|Posted by: silver_chan Nov 4 2016, 07:03 PM|
| Aw man, I have to wait a full day for mine to grow, because I grabbed them so late...
I'm so excited! Though it would be nice if some of mine could grow up sooner, haha. I want to grab more things out of the AP!
It does specifically call them Witchlight Dragons, so I'm assuming they're not Drakes. It would be cool to get holiday Drakes, though... the eggs were also normal dragon-size, though I guess that's not exactly a perfect check considering the Pumpkin egg sprites.
|Posted by: blockEdragon Nov 4 2016, 07:29 PM|
drakes sound cool but then they could only breed with about 5 partners, almost none of which look that great in lineages
I say keep holidays to normal dragons and let them have a wide array of options
|Posted by: saltywench Nov 4 2016, 07:43 PM|
I thought I was lucky to get up to 8 so I could have 4 pairs, LMAO

| Eeek! My Witchlights have gendered and now have names! ^-^ Shadow Walkers are still my favorite Halloween breed but these guys are right up there! <3 *snuggles and skritches her little ones*
Also, oh my GoN there are STILL Halloween eggs in the AP?! Probably an unpopular opinion but I wish they'd skedaddle already so I can hunt for non-Holiday ERs...
|Posted by: Marie19R Nov 4 2016, 08:05 PM|
| All my Witchlight hatchies are gendered and I'm contemplating names. I *finally* got the last Caligene that I wanted, so I'm set!
.... Okay now, the old Halloweens can go away now! *pokes AP*

|8 more hours until my Witchlight hatchies grow up! :3|
|Posted by: pixiezbite Nov 4 2016, 08:54 PM|
|Do we know for sure if the ap eggs will go poof at midnight cave time? I have some eggs I'm wanting to hunt for, but with the ap going sooooo slow, they won't hit it for another few hours...they are at 3.2, ap is a 3.|
|Posted by: purplehaze Nov 4 2016, 08:56 PM|
| My first hatchie should grow up in about 3 hours, but the rest are much farther behind.
Thanks again, Odeen for a lovely and interesting dragon. Thanks to TJ and to all who worked on the event and the T or T art. It has all been a lot of fun.
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Nov 4 2016, 08:58 PM|
AP eggs don't simply poof. They sit there until picked up. Eggs in the queue that do not get picked up by death (such as happens during the holidays when low time eggs get hidden behind full time holiday) will die and be removed from the queue. But otherwise, eggs will continue to queue until they are picked up.
Three more hours for my adults. o3o

| Oh boo. Everything is too low time to influence (or bite, which I thought I might try on some of the messies). Dx lol
Plus side... witchlight adults soon!
(Whoo, I've collected 47 Halloweens so far this year!)
|Posted by: _Sin_ Nov 4 2016, 11:08 PM|
I was going to point to that. Not that I mind, in a couple of hours, once my initial set of Halloweens grow up, I will be in the AP, hunting for an additional set. Worst case scenario, afterwards I will be doing my best to gender-trade.
|Posted by: xdlugia Nov 4 2016, 11:08 PM|

|Posted by: Nightwalkerkey Nov 5 2016, 12:30 AM|
| Question for those who have payed attention to previous Halloweens...
Are there usually more of the last years breed- this seems like such a small amount to me. Caligenes- I haven't seen a whole lot in the ap.
|Posted by: arjunvohra Nov 5 2016, 12:38 AM|
The previously released Halloween breed, I would guess, will always be the rarest in the AP, since no one has bred them to get their own Halloween offspring before, and want to hoarde them, so they go very quickly in the AP- there is a very high demand. I will assume a similar thing will happen to witchlights next year in the AP.
|Posted by: kiyoura Nov 5 2016, 12:41 AM|
This is pretty normal and makes sense mathematically - there are fewer Caligenes. Example - I was able to breed 13 CB Caligenes (traded for 6 extras last year) this year and bred 14 CB Cave Lurkers + 25 lineaged CLs this year, too.
also to add to arjunvohra's post - demand is usually highest for the previous year's dragons since no one has 2nd gens. yet.
|Posted by: StormBirdRising Nov 5 2016, 01:13 AM|
Thank you for sharing that. I love these new dragons. I'm going to breed one with DiamondWings as soon as I have one that grows up.
|Posted by: Lurhstaap Nov 5 2016, 02:02 AM|
| That was true of Desipis last year, too. I got a fair number of G2 Caligenes but I had to hover semi-obsessively and click REAL fast for 'em.
Although, there were QUITE a few x Mint...
EDIT: I just froze a hatchie and decided to do some AP catch and release. WOW there's A LOT of nice G2 Desipis and others going through there still! For every messy I've picked up like 5 G2s. Guys, if you have any slots open, go hit the AP! There's a LOT of good stuff still! I haven't seen a Witchlight go by but I've seen everything else, including a Caligene or two and half a page of Desipis at once.
|Posted by: Sheriziya Nov 5 2016, 02:52 AM|
|7 Witchlight dragons growing up and I've got one of each of the old ones. Looking good|
|Posted by: CharonDusk Nov 5 2016, 03:01 AM|
| The AP right now, just...wow. Usually the Halloween dragons are all gone by now It's actually kinda sad, because there's a lot of nice lineages that will probably end up dead or frozen because they're below influence time and precog the wrong gender (which is good for those who freeze but not so good for lineage hunters like me ) Makes me kinda wish there was an egg version of Stun...
Anyway, my little Fuzzbutts will all grow up soon. Ended up with 8 of them, which is tiny compared to some of you but perfect amount for me.
|Posted by: Lurhstaap Nov 5 2016, 03:13 AM|
|It IS kind of sad, actually. As soon as my Witchlights grow up tomorrow I'm hitting the AP again to help clear it if there's anything left. Poor Halloweenies! On the other hand, it is kind of nice that there's still so much good stuff to grab this far out. Maximal Halloween time this year. I had a pretty bad day on Halloween this year so it's kind of nice for DC!Halloween to be a bit longer than usual. Yet all those eggs that might die! Such mixed feels.|
|Posted by: quinney Nov 5 2016, 04:14 AM|
|Five of mine have grown up now so I've just picked another five nice halloween eggs. I was surprised to see the AP still full of them this morning.|

|Posted by: FluffyPillow Nov 5 2016, 04:33 AM|
|All but one of my Witchlight hatchies grew up (the last one will grow in a couple of hours), so I grabbed some more eggs! (Got a Pumpkin with a cool code as well! )|

Now I can go rescue an egg from the AP..
|Posted by: Guillotine Nov 5 2016, 06:15 AM|
|All mine grew up, so now i'm waiting on the bred ones to grow up to grab more Halloweens... Truly a terrible cycle (at least since they can't be influenced and I don't have any more freezes left >_< wish we still had the week cooldown...). :V|
|Posted by: Spirit_ Nov 5 2016, 06:26 AM|
|The adults look really nice! Marrows are still my favorite Halloween dragon, though..|
|Posted by: shortaxel Nov 5 2016, 07:14 AM|
| This is the best Halloween ever!!! I just loaded up on 11 more Pumpkins. Only one is messy, most are fine as either gender, and one is a G2 who's going to gender correctly!
Mom's going to laugh really hard and tease me for weeks if I'm up late to catch Pumpkins again but wow, this is too good I never thought they'd last long enough for me to get another set and yet here I am, trying to will more dragons to grow so I can grab more.
|Posted by: Shokomon Nov 5 2016, 07:23 AM|
| There seems to be so many more Haloweens this year than previous years.
I've never seen them last so long in the AP or get this low a time.
If this keeps up, We might see some of these eggs start dying, if not this year, then in the upcoming years....
|Posted by: Nevemore Nov 5 2016, 07:41 AM|
I can definitely see it happening. Perhaps, its time for the scroll limits to be updated. Such a shame to sit with locked scroll and see all those low time eggs go by.
|Posted by: greycat Nov 5 2016, 07:49 AM|
| i wish we could rescue more eggs. i'd hate to see them die maybe i'll manage to get a few more tomorrow, when the rest of my witchlights grow up.
i'm pretty happy that i got as many as i did, a total of 34 shadow walkers (my favourites), and only the last two of unknown gender. i'm going to breed heaps of aeons in time for the next holiday season.
|Posted by: djengis Nov 5 2016, 07:59 AM|
| i think a lot wont take them because they cant be influenced anymore.
i had to drop a bunch of pretty ones because of wrong gender precognision and im almost out of those BSA too
|Posted by: PaintdGryphon Nov 5 2016, 08:00 AM|
I'd love to be able to save more, but this time I'm total locked. I'm hoping some hatch soon, so I can get some more out of the AP. I hate the thought of them dying
|Posted by: Kaityn Nov 5 2016, 08:05 AM|
|Now that we cant' influence, I'm grabbing a bunch of eggs to hatch and then abandon as hatchies. There really isn't much else I'm looking for by now, and I usually start looking to saving the non-holiday dragons once they start showing up after the holiday flood is done.|
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Nov 5 2016, 08:06 AM|
Either don't breed or Sony freeze them. But even Aeon dragons can be wrong. I didn't influence a dragon cause I thought it was going to be male and it ended up being a female.
|Posted by: fuzzbucket Nov 5 2016, 08:08 AM|
I HOPE you are kidding. I thought aeons were 100% ?
I'd take loads and just chance it - but I am locked.
|Posted by: djengis Nov 5 2016, 08:13 AM|
|Posted by: Kith Nov 5 2016, 08:15 AM|
| Allowing influence past the 3d mark would also help, I'm thinking... Though of course I'd love to see limits increased, too.
(Also really hoping that precog being wrong isn't intended)
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Nov 5 2016, 08:16 AM|
I could be wrong. But I swear I did have two dragons where they said it was going to be male uninfluenced and they turned to females. I think one of them was actually an Aeon.
Because I'm just like, oh yay, these dragons will be male uninfluenced and they next time I checked on them, they were female :/
Ediy: one of them was a purple dragon. It said it was supposed to be male uninfluenced and it turned to female. I froze it because I was upset it turned female. https://dragcave.net/lineage/REOxw I don't have the actual Precognition page saying it was male
|Posted by: walkinslow Nov 5 2016, 08:22 AM|
| I don't have adults yet, and I can't grab any more of those lovely AP eggs because I'm locked - locked - locked. Sigh. Would have loved to catch some of those 2nd gen Mintkin!
ETA: I just counted, I caught 42 holiday dragons this season (so far)!
|Posted by: saltywench Nov 5 2016, 08:25 AM|
|I wish we could influence up until eggs hatch. I keep having to toss back eggs the wrong gender. *sigh*|
|Posted by: Syiren Nov 5 2016, 08:33 AM|
I know. I'm locked with hatchies, which I love, but seeing all of these Halloween eggs still sitting there is really testing my sanity. lol.
Out of curiosity I just counted mine and then double checked and the number still rounded out as 50. ...I think that may be a record for me.
Even if I can't grab anymore by the time my babies grow up I'll still be happy. I caught so many great lineages and a fair few I can continue and even some I had been hunting for, so this Halloween was a huge success. I can only hope for the same luck this Christmas.
|Posted by: *Silver Fox* Nov 5 2016, 08:35 AM|
|Four adults on my scroll so far. There will be two more growing up and two are frozen, so my scroll goals for this breed is complete.|
|Posted by: greycat Nov 5 2016, 08:40 AM|
| i just noticed that the action page shows which gender a dragon is predicted to be, when precognition is used. so you can go back and check if it genders wrongly later, though so far every time i've used it it's been correct. i'd hate it if it wasn't reliable. maybe it's like using pinks, and only works 99% of the time?
|Posted by: purplehaze Nov 5 2016, 09:04 AM|
|I am totally hatchie locked. I will have another 4 Witchies growing up in the next few hours, so I may try grabbing and hatching a few of those eggs in the AP and then dropping them back as hatchies. I am ready to be done with Halloween now. I got most of what I wanted.|

| Once my eggs hatch I can finally go to bed happy. Over 60 Pumpkins this year!!! I really couldn't be any happier. I even managed to catch a lot of G2s in the AP, even during the crazy 2-3d wall. Plus I got messy Caligenes I needed for freezing and a Grave with a cute code.
Maybe this time when I think "These are surely my last Pumpkins and no more Halloweens will be there when I wake up" it'll actually be true, haha.
|Posted by: Jazeki Nov 5 2016, 10:39 AM|
There's only so much space. I'm trying to hatch and give away dragons to relieve it, but I'm low on space as it is.

|Posted by: Sheriziya Nov 5 2016, 12:24 PM|
|Well, I'll need to wait another 12 hours for my first witchlights to grow up, but in the mean time I've saved 14 other Halloween dragons from the AP. If any are left, when my Witchlights start to grow up, I'll pick up some more. I'd hate to see them die because just because they're in the AP.|

| I didn't even breed all my Halloweens this year. Glad I didn't since the AP is still clogged with ones from people who did breed them.
I think this event is about going to double my total number of Halloween dragons.
|Posted by: fuzzbucket Nov 5 2016, 12:53 PM|
There's always the "hatchie didn't gender right" thread....
|Posted by: Nightwalkerkey Nov 5 2016, 01:01 PM|
I had that thought yesterday morning, and went to check the graveyard. Lots of eggs from Nov, but didn't see any that were left in ap with a 7day death chart/numbers on their page.
And I too forgot to breed any of my hallows.
|Posted by: Nine Nov 5 2016, 01:09 PM|
| I definitely think we're going to need more egg slots and limits. This coming December there will be nine Christmas dragon breeds going into the AP; since a lot of people won't be catching Hollies right off the bat, they'll probably collect six eggs and keep the seventh open for Holly hunting. Only collecting one egg for six out of nine breeds during the initial rush is going to mean a whole lot of eggs in backlog while people wait 2-3 days to hatch. I imagine certain breeds, like Snow Angels and Yulebucks, are going to be permanent clogs in the AP because people just don't have the space to collect older breeds anymore. Whereas messy lineages used to get picked up as well in the past, for freezing or just to have more pretty sprites on your scroll, people are going to be a lot more strict with what takes up precious egg space.
I can only see this getting worse =P I love being able to collect so many halloweens right now, but it's a symptom of a soon to be much bigger holiday issue.
|Posted by: Pryanka Nov 5 2016, 01:30 PM|
I wanted to pick more up but I've got a limited # of aeons and the eggs can't be influenced...so it's just becomes a gender lottery that I have to wait like 2 days before I can see the genders.
|Posted by: kittyrules2003 Nov 5 2016, 01:32 PM|
There'll always be the newer members like me who'll pick up the old breeds
|Posted by: Idril Nov 5 2016, 01:35 PM|
I doubt more eggslots will solve the problem. It will make it worse, because people have more room for eggs to grab and thus will breed more eggs the next year. And so on, and so on.
This year I didn't breed all my Halloween dragons, and seeing the AP still full, I decided in the future not to breed all of my holiday dragons anymore. Maybe only those from last year because I like them to have at least one offspring or I only breed the CBs.
You can't really tell people how to breed their dragons, so maybe reduce the multiclutches for older breeds or according to ratios?
|Posted by: Nightwalkerkey Nov 5 2016, 01:38 PM|
That's a good point for sure... Ratios or multiclutches difference. What about maybe adding more freeze slots, even just during holidays or of holiday breeds only? I still haven't frozen all I wanted to for sprite collection, and definitely would have got rid of some AP eggs through freezing.
|Posted by: legofrodo12 Nov 5 2016, 01:48 PM|
|My first Witchlights don't grow up for another eleven hours or so... HURRY UP I NEED TO SAVE SOME AP EGGS.|
|Posted by: Nine Nov 5 2016, 01:49 PM|
| I don't see how being able to pick up one or two (or nine) more eggs will make the problem worse. I doubt all of those being picked up will be bred next year, especially if they're messy or going to be frozen. Especially especially since many people will want to freeze in order to make more room to collect more. Holiday dragons are going to exponentially increase every year regardless, and I'm of the opinion that having oodles of holidays actually decreases one's desire to breed them all. Just too many lineages and mates and pairs to pay attention to. Not that it's hard to just go down the list and mass breed.
Lowering multiclutches of old holidays may help, but I find that a rather unpleasant last resort. Taking away one of the few unique perks of holiday breeding seems like it should be Plan Z.
Obviously some holidays are going to die because there are just too many and not enough room to grab them all, which is fine in some regards, but having an AP backlog last a week is a bit excessive. It's usually a lot worse when it comes to Christmas too, thinking back to previous years.
|Posted by: djengis Nov 5 2016, 02:25 PM|
| I still think if we were able to influence them now, they would be picked up.
I unlocked this morning and had to use precognition on a lot ( which i Now ran out of) and i tossed back the ones that would gender wrong, ones i would have normally kept and hatched so i could take more.
|Posted by: Spirit_ Nov 5 2016, 02:33 PM|

|This is the last year I bred all my Haloweens. Next year I'll only breed my projects/requests and trades.|
|Posted by: Lurhstaap Nov 5 2016, 03:48 PM|
| TBH I worry that the issue isn't so much too many eggs being bred as that a lot fewer people are picking them up this year than last. There's been discussion all year that the game seemed quieter and at first I thought it was illusory, or temporary if real, but I expected to see a lot more activity in my hatcheries once the holidays came and it's been very distressing to see things be so slow. I've been forced to use two hatcheries even on ER eggs when once EATW would blast an ER egg open within minutes by itself. It's a little sad. I wonder what happened. Did that many people really leave over not having a raffle? Or is it something else?
I didn't even breed close to all of my Halloweens, because I got distracted by IRL and ran out of time, but I don't think I will next year either if things remain this slow or slow down even more.
On the other hand, I can't deny that I've been gleefully glutting myself on as many as I can get ahold of. I don't have any Aeons so I can't and don't worry about gender at this point. Just snatching as many G2s and other stuff I like as I can.

|EATW isn't as fast as it used to be - I'm finding Evina's does better for ERing these days....|
|Posted by: yipyipbrrring Nov 5 2016, 04:13 PM|
|I've been getting as many Halloweens as possible, but I ran out of freezing spots and I need to wait for my hatchlings to grow up to get more. ;-; Is there a reason there's a limit on freezing actions? (Sorry, I'm a newbie (kinda).)|
|Posted by: andromedae Nov 5 2016, 04:23 PM|
|I'd grab more eggs now, but...influencing is impossible with low time. And I'm out of aeons for pre-cog too.|
|Posted by: CellyBean Nov 5 2016, 04:40 PM|
2g gold from male witchlight
man the male witchlight pose and female gold pose are perfect for each other imo plus those colours are amazing
shame im probably gonna give this egg away
|Posted by: yipyipbrrring Nov 5 2016, 04:42 PM|
Ahhh, I want a gold so bad And yeah, the sprites are amazing ;o;
Why're you gonna give it away? o-o
|Posted by: PaintdGryphon Nov 5 2016, 04:42 PM|
|Influenced, precog, or gendered wrong, I just want more. I find that with only one exception, I love the Halloween dragons better than any. If I had more slots, I'd grab more.|
|Posted by: CellyBean Nov 5 2016, 04:46 PM|
because i prefer cb dragons over bred ones. if i were to make a checker lineage out of this it would be after i complete all my scroll goals for cb dragons which would probably take over a year. so why not give away these pretties for other people to enjoy as they'll just be sitting around on my scroll doing nothing for a long period of time.
and yeah i got a really wonderful trade for my two golds. im really happy my female produced an egg instead of refusing
|Posted by: EscapistLore Nov 5 2016, 04:49 PM|
|I have three hatchlings growing up within an hour. I'll be grabbing more of these AP eggs.. I hate to see eggs die. Hopefully I can catch some messy eggs from the AP to freeze.|
|Posted by: Siliskor Nov 5 2016, 04:56 PM|
I agree. I rescued 12 more 'Weenies from the low-time AP & will go back for 2 more in 2 hours. I'm not even worried that the (precoged) majority will gender wrong, I just want more. I miss the time when I didn't concern myself with prettiness & just concentrated on collecting as much as I could. I can turn all the misgenders into perfectly nice spirals. I'm rediscovering a wonderful lack of stress with that thought. Maybe later I'll tally up my total haul, after 5+ AP trips, several frozens & 16 new witchlights, I might scare myself at the number!
|Posted by: gigglymonkey12 Nov 5 2016, 04:56 PM|
| Thank you to those who abandoned and I'm glad that I was able to do some trading for them.
I think next year I will definitely abandon some so that there will be more love to spread around.
|Posted by: walkinslow Nov 5 2016, 05:10 PM|
Actually, many of the Halloweens I bred produced only 2 eggs instead of 3 or 4, so maybe some kind of regulation is already in place?
Maybe adding a day before sending eggs to the AP wasn't such a bad idea...
|Posted by: Pokemonfan13 Nov 5 2016, 05:18 PM|
But think about the flip side. Yea, right now it's sad because the eggs are below influence level, but back during the frantic breeding week the eggs in the AP were up to a day lower in time than they would have been previously. The eggs rather quickly started dropping below 7 days, while before they would only get below 7 days once they reached 6 days in reality. This would have contributed to the increased numbers of holidays AP hunters could raise, since an egg that starts a day lower is going to be an adult a day earlier. So it very well could be that the AP would be in an even worse state of backlog if the added day was still in place, as counter-intuitive as that may seem at first.
|Posted by: SullenCat Nov 5 2016, 05:50 PM|
Please no... There were and are extremely good reasons (including the one referenced by Pokemonfan) to get rid of the added day.
I'm not sure instead why people keep breeding their Halloweens once the new release starts...
|Posted by: CellyBean Nov 5 2016, 05:55 PM|
|well its their dragons their choice to breed. maybe they forgot to breed earlier or decided to wait until halloween to breed as a way to celebrate halloween|
|Posted by: songwithnosoul Nov 5 2016, 05:55 PM|
|Guys, we're finally reaching the end of the eggs! We have a row of hatchies now!|

I'm locked but I screamed at my brother to log on to his account and I'm screaming over his shoulder to click this and that and I'll trade him some things I catch once I'm not longer locked
Edit: things not thugs oooops
|Posted by: FluffyPillow Nov 5 2016, 06:11 PM|
|Holy biscuits, that wall of hatchies! Never have I seen that happen before! What a time to be locked with hatchies - cruel irony|
|Posted by: CellyBean Nov 5 2016, 06:11 PM|
| my guess is someone manually entered codes of lowtime eggs into ers to get them to hatch instead of dying
|Posted by: Crobat Nov 5 2016, 06:12 PM|
If they did, that's... quite the dedication.
|Posted by: Tigerkralle Nov 5 2016, 06:15 PM|
|So i can confirm no BSA for Witchlights. And why is this thread still not closed?|
|Posted by: CellyBean Nov 5 2016, 06:16 PM|
i did it with my own eggs that i bred that are stuck behind the holiday wall
it wouldnt surprise me if someone did just take a look at the number of views that the hatchies have and several people have been worried about the eggs dying in this thread and possibly other threads so it seems like someone took matters into their own hands
|Posted by: VioletWhirlwind Nov 5 2016, 06:17 PM|
|I am Hatchie- and egg-locked again...good to see somebody is trying to save the low time eggs...@ hatchie wall.|
|Posted by: CellyBean Nov 5 2016, 06:18 PM|
|yeah theres no bsa for the witchlights fyi|
|Posted by: walkinslow Nov 5 2016, 06:19 PM|
I know, and I also agree with Pokemonfan13. I was just thinking... Well, maybe some other solution...
But... that hatchie wall! I did enter some low-time eggs to hatcheries, but not that many! Just wow. And I'm still locked.
And now there are eggs with just 20 minutes left before they die! This is crazy!
|Posted by: Sunfeathers Nov 5 2016, 06:22 PM|
| Wow hatchie wall! Amazing!
I put a couple of my bred eggs into ERs, but only normal ones that were hidden behind the holiday wall. Thank you to whoever hatched all these ones!
|Posted by: VioletWhirlwind Nov 5 2016, 06:22 PM|
| Lurker hatchie wall:
Aaaand we're back to regular eggs now.
|Posted by: Clya Nov 5 2016, 06:25 PM|
| 1 more hour until I have 2 slots *rubs hands together greedily for the low time regular eggs*
Just barely missed the hatchie wall for myself, that just my "greedy" brother some Xenos
Thank you again for this amazing Halloween event! Spriters, mods and TJ, everyone! Thank you, this hatchie wall was quite the surprise!
|Posted by: SullenCat Nov 5 2016, 06:28 PM|
I do not recall saying that was not their choice. I said I was not sure about why. Considering that many of those eggs, bred at the last minute, will die.
|Posted by: Pinch of StarDust Nov 5 2016, 06:35 PM|
| I had so much fun this Halloween. I got
Because there were so many eggs needing to be ER'd I spent a lot of time giving views in 3 of the fansites.
I was so busy making zombie fodder, making zombies, catching this years Halloween eggs, that I didn't get around to doing any breeding of my own to send to the AP. In hind sight I am glad I didn't because there were so many that needed homes.
All in all this was the most Halloween fun I've had.
Edit: forgot some Halloween dragons I raised before Halloween.
|Posted by: fuzzbucket Nov 5 2016, 06:36 PM|
I bred at the last minute on Hallowe'en.
Because I hadn't the time before. And mine haven't died - yet. It was a while before they were picked up - but they lived.
It's over. And still 2 hours before I would have had a slot. Oh well....
|Posted by: Odeen Nov 5 2016, 06:36 PM|
|Thanks T.J. and EVERYONE for such a wonderful Halloween!|
|Posted by: fuzzbucket Nov 5 2016, 06:38 PM|

And thanks to every one for the great stuff I've picked up Not for one moment did I ever think....

|Posted by: aisudesu Nov 5 2016, 06:45 PM|
| Thank you everyone for this nice Halloween!! I grabbed myself some neat lineages, hatchis and even more!!
When this ended, I managed to grab a CB Nebbie egg from the AP, pre'cog female and hoping for Red!! Anyways, thanks everyone, it was nice being able to play my first event with you - and, thanks, Odeen, for these wonderful new dragons!
|Posted by: VioletWhirlwind Nov 5 2016, 06:46 PM|
|the neglected makers will have a hayday with all the low-time eggs...if they're not scroll-locked that is. XP|

| Thank you Odeen for the lovely Witchights! Raising your own Witchlights is good for one reason... *scratch* *scratch*
O.o Don't look i am busy. Shooh!
|Posted by: *Silver Fox* Nov 5 2016, 06:52 PM|
|I'm doing my best to send as many of these poor AP eggs into the ER to give them an opportunity to live, will anyone help me out?|
|Posted by: Tigerkralle Nov 5 2016, 06:53 PM|
|Is it allowed to put eggs in th AP into hatcheries?|
|Posted by: VioletWhirlwind Nov 5 2016, 06:58 PM|
| All told, I have 7 new halloween dragons, 35 bred old halloween dragons, 6 zombies, and 1 vampire that I grabbed just before the hallowen season started.
|Posted by: CellyBean Nov 5 2016, 06:59 PM|
|it should be fine tigerkralle as the eggs in the ap arent actually owned by anyone|
|Posted by: *Silver Fox* Nov 5 2016, 07:00 PM|
Yes, it's only against the rules if they're owned by someone who doesn't allow you to give them aid.
|Posted by: purplehaze Nov 5 2016, 07:05 PM|
| Locked again! Picked up 2 hatchies from the hatchie wall and 2 5-hour eggs after the wall was gone. No more space now.
No Halloween eggs died behind the wall. The last Halloween eggs to be picked up still had about 2 days 5 hours or something like that.
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Nov 5 2016, 07:10 PM|
|Alright, I am seriously locked right now and can't do anything until these hatchies grow up.|
|Posted by: SullenCat Nov 5 2016, 07:18 PM|
Does that mean that they will show up again once the AP is at 2 days something?
|Posted by: CellyBean Nov 5 2016, 07:25 PM|
no they're all gone no more holiday eggs
holiday eggs always come before regular eggs in the ap so once the regular eggs show up in the ap that means that all the holiday eggs have been picked up
|Posted by: greycat Nov 5 2016, 07:29 PM|
| i woke up too late to see the last halloweens in the ap
i finally had one space free, so i hatched a few eggs and threw them back, but then caught a diamondwing hatchie which grew up instantly a second later. i've never had that happen before
another three hours before the last of my gorgeous witchlights grow up
|Posted by: SullenCat Nov 5 2016, 07:41 PM|
All the holiday eggs have been picked up? I seriously doubt. I was watching the AP, it was full of 2 days 5 hours eggs and all of the sudden all of them disappeared. It looked like TJ "cleaned up" the AP. In consequence, I would bet that all those remaining holiday eggs, unless they show later, are now dead.
If you do not think so, ask TJ.
|Posted by: Marie19R Nov 5 2016, 07:43 PM|
|Well before this thread gets closed just wanted to say again how awesome this event was!! Odeen, these dragons are amazing!|
|Posted by: TheCompleteAnimorph Nov 5 2016, 07:43 PM|

| Since users are getting adults and holidays are no longer walling in the AP, I'm going to go ahead and close this thread.
Thank you, TJ and artists for the event and release. ^^
