|Wonderful! Glad to see new dragons for March! Thank you.|
|Posted by: w5aw5 Mar 18 2017, 11:02 PM|
| Thanks for the new dragons TJ and spriters.
Edit: Wow, fourth post.
|Posted by: Alia Mar 18 2017, 11:02 PM|
|Awesome! and pretty cool eggs.|
|Posted by: stardust13 Mar 18 2017, 11:02 PM|
|Huzzah! Lottsa eggies for March!! Thanks, Cavers!|

| I got a blue walnut egg. =o And am locked for a while. And just bred eggs I need to hatch to give to someone. >_e
I'm very interested in these crystal vein eggs, though!

|I knew I saw an unfamiliar description! Right after I went and bought a nice mineral too. Nice timing.|

|Thank you! Did I make the 1st page?|
|Posted by: gotw3 Mar 18 2017, 11:07 PM|
|I nabbed a bunch of the crystal eggs from the volcano, and I got all blue ones. .u.|

|[screeches a little bit]|
|Posted by: Kith Mar 18 2017, 11:08 PM|
|Yeah, my crystal eggs are all blue, too. Wonder what determines the color...|
|Posted by: kiramaru7 Mar 18 2017, 11:08 PM|
|Thank you TJ & Spriters for the new eggies!!|
|Posted by: Amethyria Mar 18 2017, 11:09 PM|
| Yeah, new eggs!
I like the ones with the green crystals best, but only got three blue ones for now. Hopefully I'll get the other colors later!
|Posted by: ShadowNinjaGhost Mar 18 2017, 11:09 PM|
|Wow this was quite the surprise, I was not expecting there to be a release today! I love the new eggs and I am looking forward to seeing what they hatch into.|
|Posted by: dirtytabs Mar 18 2017, 11:12 PM|
|I bet the veined ones drop depending on time. Hm.|
|Posted by: silver_chan Mar 18 2017, 11:13 PM|
|Woah, so many new eggs! Until I see red or green ones, I'm going to assume blues are only available for now... time to do some hunting! Thank goodness I have tonight off.|
|Posted by: Wahya Mar 18 2017, 11:14 PM|
|Posted by: Painter Mar 18 2017, 11:14 PM|
|Odd -- eggs from the Volcano do not specify a color. Once picked up, it's clarified as veins of blue crystal. I don't think I've ever seen an egg description change before after being picked up. Neat!|
|Posted by: ab613 Mar 18 2017, 11:15 PM|
|oh--that's a lot of eggs. happy hunting.|
|Posted by: Cobaltberri Mar 18 2017, 11:15 PM|
| IM LOCKED OH NOOOOOO
|Posted by: ainisarie Mar 18 2017, 11:15 PM|
|Blue eggs in coast and jungle so far. Crystal one in volcano only as far as I can tell|
|Posted by: gotw3 Mar 18 2017, 11:15 PM|
|Though I have all blue ones for now, I can't wait to grab some of the red and green! Forgot to say how beautiful the eggs were in my confusion in getting all blue. :p|
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 18 2017, 11:16 PM|
| They looked cool..
Right away grabbed the blue and a blue crystal looking egg
|Posted by: silver_chan Mar 18 2017, 11:16 PM|
Omg you're right. How fascinating!
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Mar 18 2017, 11:17 PM|
I was so intent on grabbing this new, unrecognized descrip I didn't even notice that. =o
Green is my fave color, so I hope I can get one of those. o3o
|Posted by: Storm_Dragoon Mar 18 2017, 11:20 PM|
|I knew there'd be a release tonight, I better get cracking.|
|Posted by: Amethyria Mar 18 2017, 11:21 PM|
| So everyone only got blue crystal eggs so far?
Maybe you can get the red and green only through breeding, like the different colors of the Striped Dragon?^^
|Posted by: Cobaltberri Mar 18 2017, 11:21 PM|
|Will the release still be happening in the morning! Because it's past 11 in my time, and I'm locked for the night.|
|Posted by: Wandering4Ever Mar 18 2017, 11:22 PM|
| Crap I wasn't expecting a release! Of course it's while I've already got eggies @-@
Still, super excited about this! Thank you TJ!
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 18 2017, 11:23 PM|
| Meow what are these new dragons?
Are they pulled from a completed suggestion? If that's so, GRATE
|Posted by: ainisarie Mar 18 2017, 11:24 PM|
These are permanent so they will not go away. But older eggs will start mixing in at some point today.
|Posted by: seaplash Mar 18 2017, 11:24 PM|
|Lovely sprites! Glad I was out hunting tonight!|
|Posted by: Sir Barton Mar 18 2017, 11:25 PM|
|Since the header graphic just shows the blue egg, I'm betting the red and green come through breeding.|
|Posted by: meirelle Mar 18 2017, 11:26 PM|
| The March eggdrop comes.
|Posted by: Daypaw Mar 18 2017, 11:27 PM|
|Guess I'll be doing some trading for other colors of these crystal dragons once we figure out where the different colors come from- all blue :< Was hoping it was random- guess not. Hope the other two aren't breed only.|
|Posted by: jewel21 Mar 18 2017, 11:27 PM|
|I only got blue veined eggs as well. I wonder how we get the other colors?|
|Posted by: anetofstars Mar 18 2017, 11:29 PM|
Do you think it will change on the hour and/or a different biome?
|Posted by: Infinis Mar 18 2017, 11:30 PM|
|yay, cool! The brownish ones are interesting looking, can't wait to see what they grow into.|
|Posted by: Process Mar 18 2017, 11:30 PM|
| blue is Jazz hands
|Posted by: KiraLwolf Mar 18 2017, 11:36 PM|
|New Release! Thanks TJ and Spriters|
|Posted by: prismatika Mar 18 2017, 11:36 PM|
|So glad I had the feeling that I needed to have everything hatched and stay up late tonight! Thanks TJ and spriters. Wonderful release! I actually really hope the red and green crystal eggs can only be gotten through breeding like the different color Stripes.|
|Posted by: gotw3 Mar 18 2017, 11:43 PM|
I'm pretty sure they must be time based. If the blue ones were the only ones available as cave drops, wouldn't "blue crystal" be in the description for the eggs instead of keeping it non specified?
With the descriptions the way they are, I have a feeling that TJ wants us to find out which colors drop when and all that jazz. :p
|Posted by: anetofstars Mar 18 2017, 11:46 PM|
That's an interesting theory! We'll see at the top of the hour.
|Posted by: ideunatty Mar 18 2017, 11:47 PM|
| Hmm.. I think It will change the same way as stripe.
|Posted by: KiraLwolf Mar 18 2017, 11:51 PM|
|I don't know whether I should grab a ton of the blue ones in case the others can only be obtained by breeding. Hmm.|
|Posted by: lean2fire Mar 18 2017, 11:53 PM|
|The description really does imply some sort of time component.|
|Posted by: cbussiere Mar 18 2017, 11:54 PM|
|Three variants, sexual dimorphism, gorgeous spritework, AND an interesting egg description? I am super duper excited for these volcano eggs. Faint markings eggs have a pretty color scheme too, this should be a good release.|
|Posted by: Cecona Mar 18 2017, 11:54 PM|
|got the blue stripe ones but haven't seen any crystals- okay I got blue crystals now, hope the other colors appear in other biomes|
|Posted by: anetofstars Mar 18 2017, 11:56 PM|
Volcano, for now.
|Posted by: Snowy Mar 18 2017, 11:57 PM|
|Ohmygosh here I was thinking I was like half a month late for this release until I checked the release date whoopppeee!!|
|Posted by: Cecona Mar 18 2017, 11:58 PM|
|I wish the max egg count could be 8 so I could get a male and female for all|
|Posted by: SpikeTheDragon Mar 18 2017, 11:59 PM|
|That was so fast. LOL I just got in the cave and noticed the new eggs. Cool! Thank-You!|
|Posted by: Cecona Mar 19 2017, 12:00 AM|
|The crystal egg descriptions now have colors in them|
|Posted by: lean2fire Mar 19 2017, 12:01 AM|
|When you pick them up, they do, when they're in the cave, they don't.|
|Posted by: Cecona Mar 19 2017, 12:01 AM|
|Oh I see, well have any other colors appeared?|
|Posted by: Duysterwald Mar 19 2017, 12:01 AM|
|It looks like they change every hour, because they are now red.|
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 12:01 AM|
|Could use each of both species for roleplay|
|Posted by: cbussiere Mar 19 2017, 12:02 AM|
| Ah, it is hour-based... Too bad I only got one blue and was going to sleep soon. My blue must remain partnerless for the next few hours.
Hopefully they'll be pretty common, I imagine that could cause frustrations otherwise.
|Posted by: Rexsaurus Mar 19 2017, 12:02 AM|
|Just got a red one.|
|Posted by: Cecona Mar 19 2017, 12:02 AM|
|Red, how cool!!|
|Posted by: anetofstars Mar 19 2017, 12:03 AM|
|So green, next hr!|
|Posted by: wingedcat Mar 19 2017, 12:07 AM|
| Thanks contributors~!
Yep, I'm abandoning everything for these
|Posted by: Shirohibiki Mar 19 2017, 12:07 AM|
| Oh neat!! My first non-holiday release on the site I picked up the blue striped one from the coast! ... Sadly, no room for more eggs. Had I known I would've saved room. ): Sigh. Hopefully I'll be able to get them all! I'll bet they're all beautiful Thank you!!
Edit: Oh, weird, red just spawned in volcano 0: So blue and red are up at the same time, then?
|Posted by: Wandering4Ever Mar 19 2017, 12:07 AM|
| That's if the eggs actually change by hour, and are not on an 8 hour cycle (or some other cycle), to allow all colors to be found during the day We'll have to wait and see what happens in the coming hours.
Wish I was able to make room on my scroll, but alas. I'll have to be content with two blue stripes and two blue veins for a day
|Posted by: Cecona Mar 19 2017, 12:09 AM|
|I'll be able to get two of each but one, the green one apparently|
|Posted by: rampaging wyvern Mar 19 2017, 12:11 AM|
|Oh dammit they're red now? I nabbed a bunch of blues. >: I'm locked now.|
|Posted by: gigglymonkey12 Mar 19 2017, 12:16 AM|
|I can't wait to nab some of the other colors.|
|Posted by: Syiren Mar 19 2017, 12:19 AM|
|Oh wow these look promising! Hope i can nab one of each|
|Posted by: Marie19R Mar 19 2017, 12:19 AM|
| Oh wow, new release! I missed the blue crystals? Dangit.
My computer is being mega-slow right now so I'm worried I'm not going to be able to catch any tonight! And I have to leave town tomorrow. Dangit.
These look awesome though!
|Posted by: Jedi40 Mar 19 2017, 12:24 AM|
|A day late for my bday. But yeah for the new eggs.|
|Posted by: Marie19R Mar 19 2017, 12:26 AM|
|Nevermind my last post, I got three of each easily. Of course I didn't mean to get three of each, just spazz-clicked. Now I won't be able to get the other crystal colors for awhile.|
|Posted by: Cecona Mar 19 2017, 12:28 AM|
|Gotta be careful with those clicks. The green ones won't drop for another 30 or so minutes|
|Posted by: Alayajoy Mar 19 2017, 12:29 AM|
|Of course there would be a new drop when I'm locked with the last of my winter eggies... Oh well. I can at least enjoy watching.|
|Posted by: Evolutary Mar 19 2017, 12:31 AM|
|Posted by: Syiren Mar 19 2017, 12:35 AM|
|Should have read the other posts before clicking the eggs. Grabbed 3 red, and left only room 4 one more egg. Dangit. I really want to grab a blue one.|
|Posted by: IOU Mar 19 2017, 12:35 AM|
| OH MY GOD NEW EGGGGGGGS AND I HAVE NO SPOT UGHHHH
They're beautiful! Seriously thinking about abandoning some other cb rares for the new ones...
|Posted by: Marie19R Mar 19 2017, 12:42 AM|
|I wonder if they will still be mass-dropping when I wake up in the morning. Hmmm. I love the blue one, it's purty.|
|Posted by: MisaTange Mar 19 2017, 12:42 AM|
|I knew something suspicious was up when I started seeing the empty cave flavortext. Ha! I didn't know this involved multiple types cause I nabbed two of the "faint markings" eggs, locking me. Hmm.|
|Posted by: Jedi40 Mar 19 2017, 12:43 AM|
|I got the red one and the blue with the stripe on it. Now I have to wait for the to hatch before I can go in for the other 2 colors.|
|Posted by: raichu59013 Mar 19 2017, 12:53 AM|
|I can't get any because I'm currently full of eggs I don't want to get rid of, however, the blue ones are my favorite.|
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 19 2017, 12:54 AM|
|I'm glad I woke up to turn my light off. LOL. I'm also glad it's not that long until the next hour so I know if the crystalline ones turn green or if I just have to wait to get other colors.|
|Posted by: anetofstars Mar 19 2017, 12:59 AM|
| Faint stripe--most biomes, except volcano.
Volcano has the crystal rock eggs, and the colours look like they change on the hr. Started w/ blue, now it's red, so betting on green next hour!
|Posted by: Cecona Mar 19 2017, 12:59 AM|
|I'm glad I decided to get on the computer today lol|
|Posted by: Pluviophillia Mar 19 2017, 01:00 AM|
|The crystal ones are only in Volcano?|
|Posted by: Duysterwald Mar 19 2017, 01:00 AM|
|Aaaand they're green now!|
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 19 2017, 01:01 AM|
| Green crystals now. :3
Edit: Debating on staying up until 3 to see if they turn back to blue. I don't have that color.
|Posted by: KiraLwolf Mar 19 2017, 01:01 AM|
|They're green now!|
|Posted by: Rexsaurus Mar 19 2017, 01:01 AM|
| Now i've got a green one.
Different colours every hour?
|Posted by: Cecona Mar 19 2017, 01:02 AM|
|seems that way, I just wish I could have an 8th egg slot -looks at lonely single green egg-|
|Posted by: MisaTange Mar 19 2017, 01:02 AM|
| Ye, to get people on the down low:
"Faint markings" are found in Coast/Jungle
"Shimmering veins of crystals" are found in Volcano and the color cycles per hour, so it'll be back to blue after this hour. Since it was red before the hour and now I got a green one this hour's drop.
|Posted by: Marie19R Mar 19 2017, 01:02 AM|
|I'll totally love it if it's different colors every hour. So much easier and faster then Lunar Herald colors.|
|Posted by: Syiren Mar 19 2017, 01:02 AM|
|Eggs are definitely green now|
|Posted by: kerrikins Mar 19 2017, 01:04 AM|
| Locked with two red, two green and three of the stripey ones, so that'll have to do for tonight. Might drop something to snag a bloo one in the morning, we'll see.
Thanks TJ and spriters!
|Posted by: Pandalf Mar 19 2017, 01:07 AM|
| Wow the volcano ones are dang hard to get ono
edit: the green one looks like mint cookie! ;o
|Posted by: Kaini Mar 19 2017, 01:11 AM|
|Oooo, this surprised me. Also grabbed three green ones before reading the news, haha. I'll wait for the other colors now.|
|Posted by: Marie19R Mar 19 2017, 01:16 AM|
|Wow. I got three red crystals easily, but the green ones are going too fast! And I really need to get to bed.|
|Posted by: Cecona Mar 19 2017, 01:19 AM|
|you have another 40 minutes before the green disappear, hopefully you can get one|
|Posted by: Frodo Mar 19 2017, 01:22 AM|
| Woke up early, and saw there was new eggs out.
Got 2 blue stripes, and a green crystal one. REALLY love those crystal ones!
And reading the posts here, the crystals change colour hourly - exciting!
Can't wait to get all the colours.
Thanks TJ and spriters.
|Posted by: Nine Mar 19 2017, 01:24 AM|
| The blue ones remind me of a logo for an airline company or something, it's weird. DC isn't secretly selling out to corporate brands now, is it? =P
The colors changing every hour is a neat concept, but I'm not particularly thrilled about actually having to pay attention and wait. The less cognitive functioning required, the better!
|Posted by: DarknessDragon197 Mar 19 2017, 01:28 AM|
| Ooh, another exciting release! Finally got my share and quite happy with the catch so far. Though the green ones will be mine eventually *^* once I'm unlocked at least.
Can't wait to see these guys hatch, thank you so much TJ and spriters for the new little guys!
|Posted by: Marie19R Mar 19 2017, 01:31 AM|
|YES! I got a green crystal egg. Off to bed now. In the morning I'll abandon a red crystal to see if I can get a blue... If blues are dropping before I have to leave.|
|Posted by: Unearthly Mar 19 2017, 01:31 AM|
|I thought the crystal eggs were random and got disappointed when my catches were all green. Then I come here and see that the egg color changes hourly. Welp, I've locked myself for the next few hours. Oops|
|Posted by: Snowy Mar 19 2017, 01:31 AM|
|I can't wait to nab all three colours I'm not clicking fast enough cuz they're all gone before I get one|
|Posted by: RagaDal Mar 19 2017, 01:36 AM|
|Oh goodie, I got two green crystals, and three of the blue faint markings ones. I guess I'll have to wait for the reds and the blues now.|
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 19 2017, 01:36 AM|
|Oh dear. Watch your eggs everyone. Mine are gaining views though I haven't added them anywhere.|
|Posted by: jocosa Mar 19 2017, 01:38 AM|
|Are the crystal ones not dropping on the :05s? I've been watching and refreshing in Volcano, and seen nothing at all. Even on the :30 drop.|
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 19 2017, 01:42 AM|
They were earlier. There may be too many people hunting now, making them go extremely fast.
|Posted by: Amaterasu-sama Mar 19 2017, 01:44 AM|
That might be because your scroll link is in the sig and curious onlookers who want to see the different eggs and which biomes they are from must be clicking scrolls of people who posted in first few pages.
Thank you for the new release! I really want the blue/red crytal ones!
|Posted by: RagaDal Mar 19 2017, 01:48 AM|
They are. I got my two green crystal ones at the :20 mark, I think.
|Posted by: silver_chan Mar 19 2017, 01:55 AM|
|Lol, I'm sorry that I filled up on Blue now! But it's nice to hear we don't have another Lunar Herald situation, haha.|
|Posted by: Dame_Jedi Mar 19 2017, 01:58 AM|
| I'm miffed with myself for not reading the forum posts before clicking eggs. I need two blue ones, and clicked an extra red one. Will need 4 hours for that one to cool down before I can try and get a blue one.
Hopefully, I'll get a blue one at the hourly drop. Edit - got a blue one!
Thanks TJ and Spriters for the new eggs
|Posted by: PrairieStead Mar 19 2017, 02:05 AM|
|Thanks to TJ and spriters for a great start to Spring. Looking forward to seeing the new dragons grown up, but the eggs are great too.|
|Posted by: purrr Mar 19 2017, 02:12 AM|
|lovely eggs. Only have two though so far........|
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 19 2017, 02:17 AM|
|Well...If I don't get any blue ones this hour, I can try again at 6. Ughhhhh.|
|Posted by: Shin'a'in Mar 19 2017, 02:23 AM|
|Managed to snag a pair of the blue one but am finding it to be nigh impossible to snag any of the other ones.Yay for barely working net and being stuck w/out a lap top and mouse instead of this stupidly llllllaaaaaaaggggggyyyy iPad. Hopefully I'll have better luck in a couple hours since it's currently nearly 3:30 in the morning and I haven't got much in the way of z's over the past few days so am EXHAUSTED. BEAUTIFUL new eggs TJ and spriters.|
|Posted by: Husky51 Mar 19 2017, 02:25 AM|
|Once more into the breach... lol|
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Mar 19 2017, 02:25 AM|
In case you missed it, the crystal vein eggs are rotation color every hour. ^^
|Posted by: Loveless3173 Mar 19 2017, 02:27 AM|
| Gahh!! Nooo!!I hafta go to sleep now.. I hope I'm able to get red.... when I get home from work! ;A; FML!!! I wish I could stay home and catch eggs!! ;A;...//
|Posted by: Dolphine Mar 19 2017, 02:32 AM|
| Got 3 green and 2 blue, hoping to trade one of those greens for a red one once they come of cooldown
thx for the pretty eggs spriters
|Posted by: Shin'a'in Mar 19 2017, 02:33 AM|
|Sock : Thanks for letting me know,though with the Insane lag going on both here,and on neopets (due to the skirmish battles)...plus the net connection dropping out on me every ( feels like ) ten minutes...I'll probably try again in a few hours after attempting a nap so that hopefully there're aren't 90+ users all Swarming the biomes (*cough-Volcano-*cough*) on the top of the hour,as well the 5/10/15/20 ect minutes.~^-^~|
|Posted by: kjym16 Mar 19 2017, 02:35 AM|
|Wll grab more when got new slot|
|Posted by: Pluviophillia Mar 19 2017, 02:40 AM|
| I think the new crystals would go with Gemshards
Also, thanks for the new release! I managed to get 2 Red Crystals. Will get more when my eggs hatch
|Posted by: kjym16 Mar 19 2017, 02:41 AM|
|New release x Hellfire / Hellfire x New release combo would be great!|
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 19 2017, 02:47 AM|
|Finally got my blue crystal. Now I have at least one of each color. Good luck with catching!|
|Posted by: *Silver Fox* Mar 19 2017, 02:51 AM|
How many colors are there, three? And they switch by the hour?
|Posted by: Caileh Mar 19 2017, 02:53 AM|
| Woohooo! I did have the feeling there would be a release this weekend, what with it being more than a month since Valentine's. And I was riiiiight Thank you TJ!!
There are waaaay too many people in Volcano though. No luck with those eggs so far. I'm hoping to get better luck at the top of the hour.
|Posted by: Sheriziya Mar 19 2017, 02:55 AM|
| Yay, Glad I decided to wait to see if there would be a new release this weekend instead of working on a new lineage
Picked up two blue ones and two blue crystals. I'll wait for the hour change to pick the next color I like it that they change color upon hour change. I wonder if that somehow has to do with the dragon's specifics.
To bad we only have 7 slots. May have to abandon one blue one to get a complete set of the crystal ones.
Happy hunting everyone!
|Posted by: Chaser11 Mar 19 2017, 03:02 AM|
|Just took the first 4 eggs from the volcano.....all of them new red ones....|
|Posted by: Caileh Mar 19 2017, 03:04 AM|
|Nope, still no luck. Sigh.|
|Posted by: Ardath Rekha Mar 19 2017, 03:05 AM|
|Ack, only four hours into the event and other eggs are starting to mix in -- at least, I clicked on an egg at the start of the hour and realized to my dismay that I'd picked up a Hellfire. I guess these are going to be rares.|
|Posted by: Frodo Mar 19 2017, 03:06 AM|
| Wasn't able to catch a blue crystal egg
But I have red & green, which are both gorgeous!
Have to wait 2 hours, till 10am, to try for the blue one again.
|Posted by: Fortune86 Mar 19 2017, 03:07 AM|
| Egg locked! Will have to pick up another red in a few days.
Thanks TJ and Spriters!
(Also, 25,000 post! Huzzah!)

|FOUR new dragons?? Oh my god?? Yay!?|
|Posted by: Sheelah Mar 19 2017, 03:13 AM|
|I have the red and blue crystal dragon eggs. I hope the greens dragon egg is next.|
|Posted by: Caileh Mar 19 2017, 03:17 AM|
|Aaaaand finally I got some luck. Which means I'm now locked with red crystals. Guess I'll have to some trading later.|
|Posted by: *Silver Fox* Mar 19 2017, 03:19 AM|
| Hope I can get all three color crystals by the end of the day to ensure having all colors in case these become rare at some point. So far two reds, and the only way for me to catch them is to push my sister out of the way and use Chrome. Thankfully we work as a team so it should all be fine.
Anyways, I'm so happy about this, we haven't had a release in a while, not counting the holiday events.
|Posted by: Aleoleo Mar 19 2017, 03:24 AM|
| New release, yay! Thanks TJ and spriters!
So let me get this straight...
- The blue eggs (faint markings) drop in the Coast biome?
- The crystal veins eggs drop in the Volcano biome, and they change color each hour?
Can someone please confirm? (too tired to check ALL the pages from this thread, sorry ^^)
|Posted by: SkyWolf25 Mar 19 2017, 03:25 AM|
|How many more minutes till I can get the blue ones? Aah the wait ;v;|
|Posted by: RaisingDragons Mar 19 2017, 03:32 AM|
|Ok, got blue, red, and 2 striped eggs. going to ditch one of the stripes to make room for 2 green volcano ones.|
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 03:40 AM|
| FINALLY GOT A RED
|Posted by: quinney Mar 19 2017, 03:42 AM|
|Is it on the hour for the different coloured ones please?|
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 03:43 AM|
Yes, every one hour these eggs will be a different color.
|Posted by: quinney Mar 19 2017, 03:45 AM|
Thanks very much, Rainbowlight!
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 03:47 AM|
also it's not for the blue faint marking one. There are only one single color for them
|Posted by: Claudii Mar 19 2017, 03:52 AM|
| I knew it somehow. Of course there would be a new release right after the day I was able to catch some CB Xenos Very pretty new eggs, though!
Going to try to get at least one of each color for the crystals, because I don't have the space for more.
|Posted by: quinney Mar 19 2017, 03:55 AM|
Yeah, got those, thanks
|Posted by: kjym16 Mar 19 2017, 03:57 AM|
| Just I guess... not sure.
1.Crystal would be quite rare
2.Stripe would be common
3.Crystal egg through breeding produced random color or following pattern
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 03:58 AM|
| When i'm egglocked and wanted to get the green one
(why neglected experiment frilled)
|Posted by: StormBirdRising Mar 19 2017, 03:58 AM|
|Wow. I can' believe it. 4 new eggs? This is so cool. Thank you TJ, Spriters, Everyone.|
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 03:59 AM|
Well not four, birdie. Two.
The other crystal are just different colors.
|Posted by: Shin'a'in Mar 19 2017, 04:01 AM|
|Is it ONLY in the Volcano biome that the crystals are dropping? Cause the only other biomes that ever seem to have any are the blues in Coast and Jungle far as I've seen.|
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 04:02 AM|
| Yep, only volcano.
The way to get different colors is to wait one hour or less and the other colors will drop
|Posted by: Shin'a'in Mar 19 2017, 04:05 AM|
|FINALLY snagged my pair of green crystals! Now to cross not only ALL fingers,thumbs included,but also the four toes I'm able to cross,in hopes that I can repeat the snagging of at least one of each of the other crystals in equally swift fashion.|
|Posted by: Nexu Mar 19 2017, 04:07 AM|
|omg yaay thank you so much for these lovely eggs|
|Posted by: SkyWolf25 Mar 19 2017, 04:11 AM|
| Got one of red and green, now I only need the blue!
I don't think theses are going to be that rare, they seem to be dropping similarly to how the Nexuses dropped on their release.
|Posted by: Shin'a'in Mar 19 2017, 04:15 AM|
| Rainbowlight : Explains the Insanity going on in that particular biome.
Kinda Annoying that it's just the one biome for the crystals...honestly expected that the green would be found in either Forest or Jungle,the blue one in either Alpine or Coast and the red one in Desert and Volcano cause that was what was done with the gemstones.
|Posted by: Raphy Mar 19 2017, 04:15 AM|
|Yeah, yesterday i had a feeling they'd be a release so luckily unlocked! And it's our anniversary today so extra special eggs for me!!!!|
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 04:17 AM|
Lol just everyone going nuts about the new release.
There are about 40-60 people sitting there waiting for the next drop.
|Posted by: Codename Cookiewolf Mar 19 2017, 04:17 AM|
|Oh my goodness! The hype is real!|
|Posted by: Light Concorde Mar 19 2017, 04:40 AM|
| Many dergs, very egglock, wow.
Such a shame I'm stuck with old eggs so I can't really grab more than two new ones. Fail! The brown and blue ones look pretty and remind me of blue opal.
|Posted by: Ripan Mar 19 2017, 04:42 AM|
| Now lessee...
The Crystals sort between Fever and Flamingo
Drops in Volcano
Colour changes by the hour
The Faints sort between Terrae and Thunder
Drops in Coast and Jungle (anywhere else?)
|Posted by: Light Concorde Mar 19 2017, 04:44 AM|
Nope, seems to drop only there. The other biomes are empty, suggesting that the gem things drop there - and are also more desirable. I've just grabbed the "faints" with zero effort, which is nice. :3
|Posted by: DragonsAmazing Mar 19 2017, 04:46 AM|
|i got a green egg, which means i finally have all four new drops! but then i went back the moment i got it and ALL THE EGGS HAD BEEN SNATCHED UP!|
|Posted by: KiraLwolf Mar 19 2017, 04:55 AM|
| Someone added my eggs to click sites and now they're all sick o.O
Be careful everyone and hide yo eggs!
|Posted by: Amazon_warrior Mar 19 2017, 05:00 AM|
Gonna guess "Fire Crystal" for the Volcano eggs.
|Posted by: Isuzu Mar 19 2017, 05:06 AM|
|Yay new release! Nabbed at least one of each, now to wait for the misclicked Limestone to go off cooldown so I can get a second Blue Crystal.|
|Posted by: Pandalf Mar 19 2017, 05:06 AM|
| The crystals are so hard to catch TToTT
I've gotten only one egg so far. =(
|Posted by: MessengerDragon Mar 19 2017, 05:08 AM|
|Woo, caught a blue crystal egg! Also took a few faints, and oops! a honey drake.|
|Posted by: Orange Sunrise Mar 19 2017, 05:08 AM|
|Thank you for the new eggs! I am glad to see the new release for March.|
|Posted by: SkyWolf25 Mar 19 2017, 05:15 AM|
|Got one of each colour! Gah, why was I stupid and got two common eggs first ;-;|
|Posted by: kjym16 Mar 19 2017, 05:28 AM|
| While people go to hunting crystal egg, I got nice code new release.
|Posted by: WoLfgIrLyS Mar 19 2017, 05:41 AM|
| Got 4 Blue Crystals and 2 Faints ~
Hate releases of same breed with different colors Unless each color will have different dimorphism
|Posted by: Aleoleo Mar 19 2017, 05:42 AM|
|I lost track of time... Are the crystal veins still green, or did we switch to blue already?|
|Posted by: dustpuppy Mar 19 2017, 05:42 AM|
| OMG OMG OMG!
The vein of crystal eggs look AMAZING! So excited about this release.
|Posted by: Aurora-Silver Mar 19 2017, 05:43 AM|
|Aaaaaaaand, I'm egglocked. Not gonna abandon my Vampire Group|
|Posted by: Amazon_warrior Mar 19 2017, 05:44 AM|
It's blue at the moment (and for the next 15 mins).
|Posted by: Aleoleo Mar 19 2017, 05:45 AM|
Ah, thank you!
|Posted by: StormBirdRising Mar 19 2017, 05:45 AM|
Wow. Four new eggs, that's great. I wonder if the 3 new crystals will be like the gemshards and breed random colored hatchies or if the green will breed green and the blue will breed blue and the red will breed red.
Feel so lucky to have four new eggs. Amazing.
|Posted by: Snowy Mar 19 2017, 05:51 AM|
|Aw man I keep missing them~ They're all gone before I can snag one ;D|
|Posted by: Pandalf Mar 19 2017, 05:56 AM|
| Same, Snowy =(
It lasts only like, two or three refreshes and then they're all gone ;o;
|Posted by: Draconis92 Mar 19 2017, 05:56 AM|
| First normal realease this year. ^^
Saw that Alpine, Desert, Forest and Volcano was cleared out and then checked back. The blue looks a little like the Glacius Drake and the other like the gemshard trio. Looking forward how they will look. Thanks to TJ and spriters.
|Posted by: Snowy Mar 19 2017, 06:02 AM|
|Can't wait to see how they turn out too~ They look amazing <3 Awesome jobs as always team spriters ^W^
@Pandalf yeah at lightning speed and they're gone :o
|Posted by: Tawa Mar 19 2017, 06:02 AM|
|At 6am (Dragon Cave time) I got only blue vein crystal eggs. One hour later I got two red ones, so I guess it really depends on the day time? Though I do not understand the pattern yet.|
|Posted by: xeph23 Mar 19 2017, 06:03 AM|
|Looks like crystal eggs (fire opals, maybe?) are red now (7am cave time). They were blue from 6 to 7. Guessing that means we get green at 8?|
|Posted by: Chococat0815 Mar 19 2017, 06:03 AM|
|So happy there's a new release! Managed to get two of the faint ones and two of the red crystals. I also got two misclicks, my Vampires are so great though, that the bitten one got repulsed|
|Posted by: Aleoleo Mar 19 2017, 06:04 AM|
They change color every hour.
Seems like it's red/green/blue/red/etc...
|Posted by: wbmorgan Mar 19 2017, 06:04 AM|
Colors change every hour, at the top of the hour. Blue, Red, Green. Right now they are Red. Next hour will be Green. then back to Blue. etc.
|Posted by: Pandalf Mar 19 2017, 06:04 AM|
|So far they change from green-blue-red reliably every hour. Reds dropping now, it seems...?|
|Posted by: Snowy Mar 19 2017, 06:05 AM|
|@xeph23 Yep that's my guess too XD Red (right now) -> Green (upcoming hour) -> Blue
EDIT: Imma slow turtle haha XD
|Posted by: Bog_Imp Mar 19 2017, 06:07 AM|
|I Love these release. Not ready for it but I love it!|

| You know what neglected experiment frilled
I'm just gonna hatch you
|Posted by: anetofstars Mar 19 2017, 06:10 AM|
|Do be careful--older eggs mixing in now.|
|Posted by: dustpuppy Mar 19 2017, 06:17 AM|
|Old eggs mixing in already? That's the only thing I'd change about releases, the risk of mis-clicking old eggs.|
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 06:24 AM|
|What color of crystal eggs is it dropping now?|
|Posted by: Pluviophillia Mar 19 2017, 06:24 AM|
|The gem ones are sorted between Fever Wyverns and Flamingo Wyverns|
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 06:25 AM|
|I asked which color is it dropping now|
|Posted by: Shin'a'in Mar 19 2017, 06:28 AM|
|Y'know you're Hopelessly Addicted to your pretties when your nose keeps dropping low enough to almost bunk against the iPad screen. Now all I need is a pretty blue veined crystal to fill my final(IF I wind up dropping one of the faints) egg slot and I'll have at least one of each. Thanks again for the new beauties.MUCH lurve to the spriters and TJ|
|Posted by: Shin'a'in Mar 19 2017, 06:29 AM|
|The reds are dropping at the moment Rainbowlight.|
|Posted by: Snowy Mar 19 2017, 06:30 AM|
| I think reds are dropping at the moment~
EDIT: Ninja'd haha I'm super duper slow (greens in the upcoming hour I think)
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 06:31 AM|
| Reds? I'm waiting for greens..
|Posted by: Shin'a'in Mar 19 2017, 06:33 AM|
|It's 7:32 am EST where I am right now yet the forum time showing for me is an hour behind. Yay for EVIL daylight savings time?|

|Looks like dimorphism for the crystals. I LIKE.|
|Posted by: Bugzilla Mar 19 2017, 06:40 AM|
|Of course the release has to happen when I am egg-locked with CB Coppers that I caught during the last days. Sigh! Come on, hatch already! I want these new eggs...|
|Posted by: DragonNeko Mar 19 2017, 06:44 AM|
|Got two of each, EXCEPT the blue crystals. I have three greens, so maybe I'll be able to trade for a blue after they cool down.|
|Posted by: Sarjis Mar 19 2017, 06:51 AM|
| TJ's display shows 2 blue eggs and 4 each of the veined eggs.
This tells me the blue egged male and female will look the same. The veined eggs will have a different appearance for the males and the females.
Can't wait to see what they look like.
|Posted by: wbmorgan Mar 19 2017, 06:53 AM|
You can change that, ya know. Under "My Controls">"Board Settings">Then check the "Is Daylight Saving Time in effect?" box.
|Posted by: Wiz Mar 19 2017, 07:00 AM|
| If the breeding pattern for the Crystals follow the hour drops of the cave I am definitely going to need a lovely icon like Pinkgothic's Lunar Herald Cyclers.
|Posted by: purplehaze Mar 19 2017, 07:00 AM|
| Got two reds very easily just now -- end of hour easier because everyone else is now waiting for the next color? And grabbed two of the other egg -- one from jungle, one from coast. All in one 5 minute drop! Not too shabby!
Thanks TJ and spriters for the new release! I was half expecting it and will have room before the end of the day for everything. (Really wish we had an eighth egg slot so I had room for a pair of each!) I see there are other eggs mixing in in the coast. I hope the volcano doesn't start mixing!
|Posted by: Mashabely Mar 19 2017, 07:04 AM|
|so do i have to wait for a hour until the next egg color?|
|Posted by: fuzzbucket Mar 19 2017, 07:05 AM|
It already did
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 19 2017, 07:08 AM|
| So here's today's color drop.
12am cave time-blue
12pm cave time-blue
|Posted by: Aurae Mar 19 2017, 07:10 AM|
Thanks, Jazeki! That's a huge help.
|Posted by: pinkgothic Mar 19 2017, 07:12 AM|
| Huh, the eggs remind me so much of the Meteor Shower dragon eggs (without actually being that egg) that I'm actually perplexed that they're not sorting that way. ...could still be that sprite, but with a different name? Maybe? ...I clearly don't know what I'm talking about. That said, if my crazy ramblings are right I want a hundred of them.
@Wiz: I'll gladly provide that, too. Give me a poke in PM if it turns out you need it.
|Posted by: kjym16 Mar 19 2017, 07:22 AM|
| I wonder what body type are new releases.
Striped seems eastern or western. Crystal.. uh... I can't guess.... But hatch sprite will be revealed soon
And I'm sure non BSA.
I don't want to see more dm
|Posted by: CharonDusk Mar 19 2017, 07:26 AM|
|Oooh, New eggs! I wasn't expecting these until at least next week. Managed to get a faint marking and two green vein ones, just waiting for some transfers to be picked up before I grab more.|
|Posted by: hydramorph Mar 19 2017, 07:32 AM|
| Pale blue eggs with "Faint Markings" are falling in the Coast and Jungle
Veined eggs fall only in the Volcano with the colors changing each hour.
It will be interesting to see how they breed.

| I've grabbed four, for now. Something tells me (for some unknown reason) that the tri-coloured eggs are going to end up being two-headed dragons. Just the feeling I get but could be wrong unsure.gif
Thanks to TJ and the Spriter(s) involved for this release smile.gif

|Just checked. All breeds show as biteable. No 2 heads.|
|Posted by: Pluviophillia Mar 19 2017, 07:49 AM|
| I think the Crystals will be Easterns/Westerns/Wingless and the Blue Striped ones Lindwurm/Wyrm? ;o
We do need a common Wyrm after all...

|Posted by: Aurae Mar 19 2017, 07:56 AM|

I noticed you made this list on EST time. The cave time has EDT. Is there a minus 1 hour difference at the moment? So to get the list for cave time EDT, I should look at the hour minus 1?
Thanks for the help!
Still need to catch one green one. Wondering if I have to wait another 2 hours (since I don't see any eggs now) or if they'll be there in a few minutes.
|Posted by: Syiren Mar 19 2017, 08:03 AM|
|Dang it. Already old eggs are filtering in. Why cant they wait 24 hours? I almost misclicked.|
|Posted by: Kiwiana Mar 19 2017, 08:05 AM|
|Just caught my first two Veins on the hour and they were blue. So seeing the color drop chart it seems it's always a blue-red-green change on the hours? So I just wait an hour and should get red. Will see if it works|
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 19 2017, 08:06 AM|
Oh nope. I'm on cave time. I'll change that. No need to subtract an hour.
|Posted by: fuzzbucket Mar 19 2017, 08:12 AM|
|It seems to work for me... Blue dropping now, between 9 and 10 cave time.|

|Damg these blues. Why they gotta be so popular?|
|Posted by: caya Mar 19 2017, 08:15 AM|
|Thanks for the timeline - there are currently no eggs, in which biome do they drop?|
|Posted by: Laurelin Mar 19 2017, 08:18 AM|
| For me in Alpine and Volcano (the shimmering veins ). The "faint ones" in Coast and Jungle.
But are they dropping only a few seconds? Or my PC is definitly to slow...
The "faint marking ones" are stay longer in their biomes.
|Posted by: Snowy Mar 19 2017, 08:19 AM|
|WOw 100+ people waiting in the Volcano biome these blues sure are going out fast|
|Posted by: Laurelin Mar 19 2017, 08:22 AM|
| I see actually 120 people waiting.
Usually no good chances for me and my grandpa PC. But for sure I will try.
On the other side I´m a casual player. Perhaps it will be the first time since I arrived on DC that I will not have a new egg for every new species.
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 19 2017, 08:26 AM|
Timeline for new page.
@Laurelin- You can do it! I caught mine on my phone with the same amount of biome peeps earlier this morning.
|Posted by: Laurelin Mar 19 2017, 08:28 AM|
Thank you for your kind words. I´ll try, I promise.
Eggs are dropping for me for one minute. Over 200 people were in the biome. Wow.
|Posted by: thephantomdragon Mar 19 2017, 08:28 AM|
|so i just saw this via FB and I got the one with stripes but the crystal looking ones are so evasive. Is there a trick to getting them? I also dont see all the colors dropping and I'm getting worried?|
|Posted by: Syiren Mar 19 2017, 08:30 AM|
There's a different color per hour. This hour is blue.
|Posted by: thephantomdragon Mar 19 2017, 08:32 AM|
| Oh gosh, ok I managed to snag the blue one but I think I saw regular eggs with it. Think there's a chance to get all the colors or am I too late?
Thanks for the hourly tip.
|Posted by: Syiren Mar 19 2017, 08:38 AM|
|WhooHoo! Finally got a pair! And in the same drop too. I only have one green, but I'm happy to have at least one of each. Thanl you spriters and Tj. I can't wait to see what these hatch into|
|Posted by: Lightstorm12000 Mar 19 2017, 08:41 AM|
|Alpine seems to have them, but they have a lot of other eggs mixed in. Volcano seems to be the biome where the overwhelming majority are the new eggs. That's why there's so many people there. Looks like I'm not going to get mine before work.|
|Posted by: Gryphonic Mar 19 2017, 08:42 AM|
| Boy, am I glad I saw this thread before I started grabbing! I would have loaded up on one color withouth knowing there was a pattern to the colors.
Thank you TJ, for prolonging the drop so long! I would not have had a chance at them otherwise. And thank you spriters; I can't wait to see our new dragons!
|Posted by: Laura-Borealis Mar 19 2017, 08:44 AM|
|Cracks are appearing in TJ's eggs. I'm eager to see how these look!|

|And the five minute drop after my post yields one for me.|
|Posted by: AquaBlueRain Mar 19 2017, 08:47 AM|
|Just woke up to see a new release. I'm thrilled that the eggs are still dropping! Thanks, TJ.|
|Posted by: gigglymonkey12 Mar 19 2017, 08:49 AM|
| Is it just me or is there no eggs in some of the biomes?
I tried checking during the 5 minute intervals, but I'm not seeing any new eggs then too
edit: I think people may be claiming them faster?
|Posted by: Moranna Mar 19 2017, 08:56 AM|
| Yeah, that last 5 minute drop was gone in 15 seconds!
I'm happily locked. I hope I can get the other colors later.
|Posted by: lovecats99 Mar 19 2017, 08:57 AM|
I saw a whole bunch of crystal eggs get picked up in the Volcano in less than 10 secs after the drop so they're likely just being claimed faster. too fast for me ;_;
|Posted by: Stormcaller Mar 19 2017, 08:59 AM|
|There don't seem to be many of the Crystal eggs dropping. It's too bad because they couldn't have come down very long.|
|Posted by: kittyrules2003 Mar 19 2017, 09:02 AM|
|Grabbed a Red Crystal! Hopefully I'll be able to snag a blue and green one soon|
|Posted by: Seahorse Mar 19 2017, 09:02 AM|

Hoping to get 2 blues and a green still
Which colour will drop next?
|Posted by: Naughtrish Mar 19 2017, 09:02 AM|
| Thank you TJ and spriters. I was hoping for a new release in March and my scroll was egg and hatchie free
Managed to catch two faint markings and four crystals (two green, one blue and one red) Looking forward to the hatchies!

|Posted by: Kith Mar 19 2017, 09:19 AM|
I've been checking, and didn't even see them in the hourly, so... cannot confirm. >..<
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 09:20 AM|
|I can give u my red one if you want fuzz.|
|Posted by: fuzzbucket Mar 19 2017, 09:22 AM|
Everything I have is incubated. And no, thanks for the kindness, but I don't want to take anyone's; I am just peeved that when I REALLY want an incuhatch (two) it isn't happening ! I'll do it in the end.
But Lightstorm said:
and Laurelin too:
|Posted by: Pluviophillia Mar 19 2017, 09:22 AM|
|Being honest, I would agree if the next releases would have eggs only for small populated biomes like Coast and Jungle... I mean... there are a lot of eggs in Alpine and Forest..|
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 19 2017, 09:22 AM|
Not quite sure. I saw someone posted about the alpine, but have not yet seen confirmation.
|Posted by: Ripan Mar 19 2017, 09:24 AM|
|I haven't seen a single one of the crystals in the Alpine. If someone has caught one there it'd be nice if they'd show it. Like a screenshot that doesn't show the code, because of the viewbombing risk.|
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 09:27 AM|
| I wish I could have a green.
Well, I have the red for roleplay, but...
|Posted by: Helel Mar 19 2017, 09:27 AM|
Exactly! More then 3 egg-types at the same time - NOT good, IMHO.
But yeah... New release!
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 09:28 AM|
| Lol it's actually 2 new dragons everyone, the other two are just colors
I think the regular color for the crystal one is either blue or red
|Posted by: arjunvohra Mar 19 2017, 09:29 AM|
| Ooooh! Interesting....
On the first eggs of each colour for shimmering veins, the ones that are the most cracked, on the blue egg, you can see 3 yellow-ish golden dots. On the red one, you can see 3 cyan dots, and on the green one, you can see 3 purple dots... Now I'm curious to see what these dragons are...
|Posted by: Pluviophillia Mar 19 2017, 09:29 AM|
|I guess the "original" is blue and the other are "alts"|
|Posted by: fuzzbucket Mar 19 2017, 09:29 AM|
TJ did give a list of populations and the biomes were actually fairly equal.
Yeah: Jungle is one of the higher ones !
All Habitats - 23
Alpine - 59
Coast - 42
Desert - 40
Forest - 58
Jungle - 57
Volcano - 41
No Habitat - 42 (that's hybrids and bred onlies)
|Posted by: Pluviophillia Mar 19 2017, 09:30 AM|
It would be quite funny if they turn to be what we don't expect, like Diamondwings
|Posted by: prismatika Mar 19 2017, 09:30 AM|
| I have an extra blue crystal egg. Maybe I'll see a I can trade it for a green so I can have a male and female female of those. Then I'll just have to get a third red at some point.
Also, the crystal cracking sequence is really interesting!
|Posted by: arjunvohra Mar 19 2017, 09:31 AM|
That will be funny
Everyone was like.... Whaaaa? When the diamond wings hatched
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 09:31 AM|
| Really? I can see the yellow and the cyan dots but not the purple dots...
And very excited to see this
I think their nickname would be crystal, vein and all the stuffs people call the eggs
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 19 2017, 09:32 AM|
Page bump. These may also possibly be in the alpine?
|Posted by: Pluviophillia Mar 19 2017, 09:34 AM|
Not possible, because the Crystal ones are sorted between Fever Wyverns and Flamingo Wyverns...
I don't know about the other ones but something tells me they're between Paper and Pillow
|Posted by: Belisar Mar 19 2017, 09:34 AM|
| All right, have my Crystal pairs complete now. ^^"
And a blue striped one to make the egglock complete. Wonder what these will hatch into. :3
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 09:35 AM|
Still needs a green one.
|Posted by: Pluviophillia Mar 19 2017, 09:36 AM|
|I hope we get a Wyrm from the blue striped ones|
|Posted by: Ripan Mar 19 2017, 09:37 AM|
They're between the Terrae and Thunder
I do spot some cyan blue in one of the red eggs' cracking sequence, but none in the others.
Edit: Now when one of the blue has reached one of the "open" sequences there's some ember-like orange around the crack.
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 09:38 AM|
| I spot some yellow dots on the blue one and some purple dots on the green one
Still needs a green.
|Posted by: coo_ Mar 19 2017, 09:39 AM|
| Egglocked as always.
These look amazing, thanks TJ & spriters!!
|Posted by: Pluviophillia Mar 19 2017, 09:39 AM|
|Now there are more gold dots around the crack on the blue one|
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 09:40 AM|
| Ooh the first blue one is opening!
That hole looks like ember egg cracks
|Posted by: Ripan Mar 19 2017, 09:45 AM|
| Oh yes, and the red is cracking open in blue!
I heard earlier a suggestion that they might be called Fire Opals or something, and it sure seems like Fire-something would be fitting, with that ember-like cracking and considering they're found in the Volcano.
|Posted by: fuzzbucket Mar 19 2017, 09:46 AM|
|DAMN ! misclick To bite or not to bite... Ummmmm|
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 09:49 AM|
|the green is also cracking in purple. How cool.|
|Posted by: Pluviophillia Mar 19 2017, 09:50 AM|
| Aaaaand here are the purple gems on the green one
Also one of the blue striped is now open
|Posted by: maylin Mar 19 2017, 09:53 AM|
| They are mixed already? just got here
misclicked and bite and now have to wait 24 hours for that slot
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 09:54 AM|
| The first blue one is fully opened!
The cracks does look like ember egg cracks not gonna lie
|Posted by: forumsdackel Mar 19 2017, 09:56 AM|
| Oh nice a new release!
Already got 2 of the coast/jungle ones and 2 red crystal ones. Will get one green and two blues. The eggs look really awesome, can't wait to see the hatchlings or adults!
|Posted by: fuzzbucket Mar 19 2017, 09:56 AM|
|Too late for reds this round. Hm...|
|Posted by: Ripan Mar 19 2017, 09:57 AM|
|I wonder if perhaps the faint markings-ones could be easterns? Just a hunch. It's something about that sky blue colour and the plain lines...|
|Posted by: kjym16 Mar 19 2017, 09:58 AM|
|I'm sure the crystals share same base and different color.|
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 10:01 AM|
| Yes, they do Ky.
The cracking sequence are the same, just different colors
|Posted by: gusearth1 Mar 19 2017, 10:01 AM|
|Posted by: Nectaris Mar 19 2017, 10:02 AM|
|Finally got a full set, one of the faint markings, and two of each color with the others. I'm glad I looked at the wiki before getting more of the blues than I needed.|
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 10:03 AM|
| All of the first ones are fully opened!
Wow cool eggs.. Not for the striped one tho
|Posted by: thephantomdragon Mar 19 2017, 10:04 AM|
|REALLY wish we could hold 8 eggs so we could have full sets. Oh how I wish we could get that even number of eggs. Oh well, got all I can now, egglocked with these new pretties.|
|Posted by: Laura-Borealis Mar 19 2017, 10:05 AM|
|I've got one of each color of the crystals now, and two of the faint markings. I'm content for the time being (till something hatches and I can grab more). Eagerly awaiting the emerging hatchlings...|
|Posted by: quinney Mar 19 2017, 10:05 AM|
|Just caught two very easily.|
|Posted by: walkinslow Mar 19 2017, 10:05 AM|
|A little late to the party, but I caught two green crystal eggs and one with faint markings. Hm, interesting concept. Thank you, TJ and spriters!|
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 10:09 AM|
| Wonder what will the hatchies look like
Let's just wait for the set of first ones to hatch
|Posted by: Xythus Mar 19 2017, 10:09 AM|
|I love the creative new ways to get/breed new breeds every once in a while. Thank you spriters and TJ, these look very pretty.|
|Posted by: Corteo Mar 19 2017, 10:13 AM|
|Oh hey we have a hatchie|
|Posted by: Ripan Mar 19 2017, 10:14 AM|
| And we've got out first baby! From the faint markings-egg.
Could definitely be an eastern...
|Posted by: kjym16 Mar 19 2017, 10:14 AM|
|Striped hatched. Seems western or wingless|
|Posted by: walkinslow Mar 19 2017, 10:14 AM|
Cute little thing, thank you!
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 19 2017, 10:14 AM|
Thanks for these babies. They look cute.
|Posted by: spring_dragon Mar 19 2017, 10:15 AM|
| was thinking this was happening yesterday or next weekend. but it will work out cuz i have 4 eggs that will hatch later today.
got one of the faint marking ones so far. the hatchie is adorable!
i wonder if the crystal eggs breed the same color as they are dropping in the cave? or if they are random?
|Posted by: Pluviophillia Mar 19 2017, 10:15 AM|
|The hatchling from the blue stripe egg is soooo cute|
|Posted by: Alectrona Mar 19 2017, 10:18 AM|
I'd bet they change colour depending on what hour you breed them, like the cave drops.
Edit: hatchie! How did I miss that? I like the stripe of colour on its underbelly, so cute!
Edit 2: more hatchie! Also adorable, love the patchiness!
|Posted by: Wiz Mar 19 2017, 10:18 AM|
|So cute! I'm glad I got a pair. Though it's really making me twitch I can only get an odd number of eggs. We really need another trophy so we can get nice, tidy, organised pairs.|
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 19 2017, 10:18 AM|
| New page color drop for crystal eggs in volcano (and maybe alpine).
12am cave time-blue
11-green (you are in this color right now)

So shiny and cute
|Posted by: pixiezbite Mar 19 2017, 10:22 AM|
They are super cute! Can't wait to see them grow up!
|Posted by: Laura-Borealis Mar 19 2017, 10:23 AM|
|The crystal hatchie description is amusingly alliterative. They're cuties too. I love the faint markings baby as well. It looks graceful, and I like the description - it sounds like it likes to hang out with friends.|
|Posted by: quinney Mar 19 2017, 10:23 AM|
|Very cute. We'll soon have a nursery there!|
|Posted by: kjym16 Mar 19 2017, 10:24 AM|
| The crystals seems get other color grown up.
And all seems western or wingless. (I was hoping non western.)
I can't wait to see adult sprite..
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 10:25 AM|
| Meow only striped and blue crystal hatched so far
Edit: nvm, the green hatched. The patches looks like emeraid
|Posted by: kittyrules2003 Mar 19 2017, 10:26 AM|
| Aww, I love the hatchlings!! Still trying to grab non-red crystals haha!
EDIT: Snagged a green Just need a blue now.
|Posted by: Laura-Borealis Mar 19 2017, 10:26 AM|
Hatchlings are usually (always?) wingless at this stage. So don't give up hope for wings
|Posted by: Rexsaurus Mar 19 2017, 10:26 AM|
|Green hatchie is cute|
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 19 2017, 10:26 AM|
You can't really tell when they first hatch. They get their wings (if they have wings) when they become male or female at stage 2 of the growth process.
|Posted by: WraithZephyr Mar 19 2017, 10:32 AM|
Green ones are dropping right now. I am wondering if they are time based in some fashion.
|Posted by: Ripan Mar 19 2017, 10:32 AM|
|So now we have one hatchling of each crystal as well. Looks like the Blues have got yellow yes, the Reds have blue eyes, and the Greens... I can't quite tell, but I guess it's purple like in the hatching sequence.|
|Posted by: arjunvohra Mar 19 2017, 10:33 AM|
|Congratulations on the release Corteo, Process, TheCompleteAnimorph and JereduLevenin!|
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 10:34 AM|
| I can only see the red's eye..
Edit: Wait I see the other's eyes! The green has orange eyes tho.
|Posted by: Alectrona Mar 19 2017, 10:37 AM|
To me, the blue's eye looks orange and the green's purple.
|Posted by: kittyrules2003 Mar 19 2017, 10:37 AM|
|Greens are dropping right now. Anyone have ideas on when blue will drop again?|
|Posted by: Nerbins Mar 19 2017, 10:37 AM|
| I've been searching for 20 minutes looking in the egg guide in the wiki for an egg with faint markings.
(If you couldn't tell, I'm a mere hatchling when it comes to Dragon Cave.) But still, thanks for the new releases!
|Posted by: braviary123 Mar 19 2017, 10:38 AM|
|woohoo! New drags! So excited to see what they look like :D|
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 10:39 AM|
Well I actually see that the blue has yellow eyes.
And if you look closely, the green actually does not have purple eyes, but they're.. Orange?
Edit: Oh wait. The blue's eyes are an orangeish yellow and the green's eyes are violet.
|Posted by: arjunvohra Mar 19 2017, 10:40 AM|
In about 20 minutes, it changes every hour
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 19 2017, 10:40 AM|
Bump for new page. You have 20 minutes of green left.
|Posted by: Alectrona Mar 19 2017, 10:42 AM|
Maybe our screens' colour displays are a little different? I could possibly see the green's eye as pink, but it definitely doesn't look like orange on my screen. I agree the blue's eye could just as easily be yellow, though .
|Posted by: rabbit153 Mar 19 2017, 10:45 AM|
|Dang, the gem ones really remind me of a dragon I was working on, but I don't remember what the hatchlings looked like|
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 10:46 AM|
Well I can see their eyes color crearly now. So, explained in the edit, the blue's eyes is an orangeish yellow and the green's eyes are violet.
It just looks orange on mobile for some reasons
|Posted by: kittyrules2003 Mar 19 2017, 10:47 AM|
It looks orange on my computer rip
edit: wait no, after extremely close inspection, it's purple lol
|Posted by: Seghs Mar 19 2017, 10:49 AM|
| After recently returning from my hiatus (I lost interest) I'm glad to be back, especially when I can get shiny new eggs!
*Edit got two greenies!
|Posted by: Alectrona Mar 19 2017, 10:49 AM|
Mystery solved! I find phone screens often seem to display colours slightly differently; I'm sure there's a reason, but I don't know it .

|Posted by: ab613 Mar 19 2017, 10:56 AM|
|i was lucky -- caught a second green just now, last time they dropped for the hour. now just have red left.|
|Posted by: kittyrules2003 Mar 19 2017, 10:58 AM|
| Ahh, I don't know what to do! I have three reds, one green, and I'm about to get a blue.
I'm going to abandon one of the reds when I can, should I go for a second blue or green?
I also have a faint.
|Posted by: pollyfirstfirst Mar 19 2017, 10:59 AM|
| Can anyone fill me in?
Also, the crystal ones seem to be rarer than the faint marking ones, is that true?
|Posted by: kittyrules2003 Mar 19 2017, 11:01 AM|
For the colours of the crystals in the volcano (Credit to Jazeki):
12am cave time-blue
12pm cave time-blue
And idk if they're rarer, but they seem to go faster. Maybe because they're only in one/two biomes (I heard they may be in the Alpine as well)
|Posted by: ab613 Mar 19 2017, 11:02 AM|
|they're certainly going faster. can't really judge rarity right now since it's still the main release. though user-driven rarity might be a viable factor here. 3 variations means everyone's trying to grab theirs more quickly.|
|Posted by: Amberfly Mar 19 2017, 11:03 AM|
|Came late to the party on this one. I've got one coast egg, two blues, and two greens, so I just need red ones now. I like the looks of the hatchlings, so I'm hopeful that I'll like the adults too.|
|Posted by: buershi Mar 19 2017, 11:04 AM|
|New release!! Thanks!!|
|Posted by: Frodo Mar 19 2017, 11:04 AM|
| Still trying to get a blue crystal. These little critters are hard to catch - the drop only lasts about 3 seconds.
EDIT: And now, at 4.11pm, I finally have a blue crystal. Beautiful!
|Posted by: Cthulu Mar 19 2017, 11:05 AM|
| They are disappearing very fast, so I think this will be an extended hunt....
|Posted by: pollyfirstfirst Mar 19 2017, 11:07 AM|
|3 different colors right, red, green, and blue? In the volcano they are disappearing very quickly, not sure about alpine.|
|Posted by: kittyrules2003 Mar 19 2017, 11:11 AM|
What does everyone prefer? I need to choose between a second green or a second blue
|Posted by: Frodo Mar 19 2017, 11:13 AM|
Well, blues are dropping right now, so... go for a second blue?
|Posted by: arjunvohra Mar 19 2017, 11:13 AM|
Misclicked on an egg and now I'm stuck with a royal blue dragon
Goodbye dreams of a second blue ;-;
( this is off-topic, but when will we see the Snow dragon Spriter's Alts? It's been like, 3 months. The witchlights were alted by November...)
|Posted by: pollyfirstfirst Mar 19 2017, 11:17 AM|
| 20 Minutes of staking out the biomes...one blue egg. They drop for only a few seconds.
To top it off, I just missed the five minute release because I was on forums. However, the crystal eggs look quite beautiful. Has anyone seen any in alpine?
|Posted by: quinney Mar 19 2017, 11:17 AM|
|I'm trying like heck to catch a blue - it's the only one I don't have but so far, no chance!|
|Posted by: Cygnis Mar 19 2017, 11:19 AM|
| I dropped by the main site, saw empty caves and then the faint marking eggs and grabbed 7 before coming to the forums and finding out about the other new dragon.
|Posted by: quinney Mar 19 2017, 11:24 AM|

| I was trying to fill out my encyclopedia, so needless to say I was egg locked. I ended up abandoning the few eggs I didn't need.
Those crystal eggs are going fast, though. I've only been able to catch one green one. Oh well.
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 19 2017, 11:28 AM|

|Posted by: CharonDusk Mar 19 2017, 11:40 AM|
| Hmm....the little faint-marking hatchie is quite a cute little thing, but looks like the coloured-vein one is another narcissistic type dragon? Still like how it looks, though.
Managed to get myself another two, the blue ones this time, and accidentally snagged another green which I'm gonna try trading for a red version.
|Posted by: Cobaltberri Mar 19 2017, 11:41 AM|
These are way too hard to grab, lol.
|Posted by: caya Mar 19 2017, 11:42 AM|
| Wow, these sure are hard to catch. :/
I usually have no problem getting new eggs after a few 5-minute-drops and 1 or 2 hourly drops.
1x green, 1x red so far. =_=
|Posted by: OceanSecrets Mar 19 2017, 11:44 AM|
| Yay! A release I am finally on time for!
|Posted by: Pandalf Mar 19 2017, 11:46 AM|
|Yeah the blues are proving harder to catch than any other color. The red ones are pretty easy to catch, though!|
|Posted by: PrincessLucy Mar 19 2017, 11:49 AM|
| I was trying for a blue, but since old dragons are mixing with the new ones, I got a red egg.
That was my only open spot too.
|Posted by: fuzzbucket Mar 19 2017, 11:50 AM|
| They're permanent; you can try again.
Royal Blue ? So they ARE in the Alpine too, then ? (My misclick was a volcano Guardian )
|Posted by: pollyfirstfirst Mar 19 2017, 11:51 AM|
Spaz clicking eh? Almost happened to me...thank god I read the description. Catching the blues has been so hard, I've been at every 5 minute drop from 12 and have caught only 2. Wonder how long this'll take.
|Posted by: willworkforhugs Mar 19 2017, 11:54 AM|
|FINALLY caught a blue Now, somehow, I still have to get another and 2 greens...|
|Posted by: pollyfirstfirst Mar 19 2017, 11:56 AM|
Permanent? Huh? I finally caught a second blue so now I can stop for this hour...oh wait there is only 5 minutes left. Now to go red hunting...
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 19 2017, 11:57 AM|
|*sighs* there's too many people trying to nab the eggs in volcano. Are the crystals dropping in the alpine as well? I really want a blue|
|Posted by: fuzzbucket Mar 19 2017, 11:57 AM|

but I only get the one kind in Coast~
I thought it only one kind,then I find that others are so quickly been taken~
maybe try later~Volcano are so many people
|Posted by: lovecats99 Mar 19 2017, 11:59 AM|
| Out of sheer luck, i've managed to get a red and a blue one out from the volcano.
Now I just need a green and then i'll be done for the day.
|Posted by: Cobaltberri Mar 19 2017, 12:01 PM|
| YAS i got a red!
phew, now i need these eggs to gender as opposite of eachother and i'll have a faint markingsxcrystalline veins pair. :>
|Posted by: PrincessLucy Mar 19 2017, 12:01 PM|
Yes, but a lot of us want breeding pairs with today's date, lol, except after all that, a lot of us won't end up breeding our first day breeding pairs very often.
I still need a green and 2 blues and another of the faint eggs. Hopefully, a lot of them will be tossed back into the AP after the 5 hour wait, and they will be up for grabs in a couple of days.
I have actually only managed to get 1 faint egg on my own, and traded for 2 reds and a green.

|Anyone worried about picking up more than two of each crystal colour, just breed some dragons on your scroll to fill you up to within how many you need. I just filled myself up to 5, so I could spam click to pick up two reds. Now I'm dropping two of my bred eggs so I can spam click for green in an hour. ETC.|

Way too thirsty to my eyes. I keep picking up the darn red crystals when I want/need the other two and it's impossible because I'm on mobile and no one wants red

It's dependent on time!
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 19 2017, 12:24 PM|
*sighs* I know. I got to wait another half hour for the greens and another hour after that for the blues to come back. But i cant nab them because people are being greedy
|Posted by: Isuzu Mar 19 2017, 12:25 PM|
|Got my fill for now. Two of each Crystal and a Blue "faint markings" one. Can't wait to see what they grow up into|

I'm going to throw one of the reds out and get another blue, and have:
I'm so tempted to throw away another Red though and get two greens and two blues instead haha.

I usually fill the extra spots with AP eggs and then dump them, well, except for the super messy Dark Lumina I am hatching to freeze.

| Come on. Not even a minute for dropping in the Volcano?
Sorry guys. I love DC but I have not the time to sit the whole day on my PC:
Got my faint marking dragons and one red shimmering vein egg. Seems that is enough for me.
Good hunting to all of you!

| Yay! New dragons!
I got two green, two blue, two reds and one faint markings dragons. With my luck the faint markings one will probably turn out to be rare. Ah well. I'll just hope for the best.
|Posted by: kittyrules2003 Mar 19 2017, 12:43 PM|
I know, right? We're all fussing over the crystals; watch the faints be rare haha

But still, Thanks for the new release!

|what is the description for these eggs? i missed the release drop :c|
|Posted by: Alectrona Mar 19 2017, 01:02 PM|
Crystal eggs are now green!
"This egg has faint markings." - the blue eggs with stripes.
"This rough egg has shimmering veins of crystal running across its surface." - the blue/red/green eggs.
|Posted by: walkinslow Mar 19 2017, 01:05 PM|
|Ok, I need another blue one - they will drop again in about an hour, right?|
|Posted by: Marie19R Mar 19 2017, 01:05 PM|

]This rough egg has shimmering veins of red crystal running across its surface.
(or green, or blue depending on the time caught)
This egg has faint markings.
Coast and Jungle
The crystal ones are MUCH harder to catch.
|Posted by: Queenofdragons6 Mar 19 2017, 01:32 PM|
| I ended up with one blue alpine egg, one blue crystal egg, five green crystal eggs, and no red crystal eggs. I am not happy with this.
Now I have to wait five hours before I can abandon some of the green eggs.
|Posted by: quinney Mar 19 2017, 01:34 PM|
|I think the crystals are definitely undistinguishable. I read posts earlier about the colour of their eyes - I can't even see the eyes! ( And yeah, okay - my own eyes leave a heck of a lot to be desired!)|
|Posted by: Alectrona Mar 19 2017, 01:36 PM|
Instead of abandoning them, you could probably trade the green eggs for other colours; I think there are a lot of people who picked up more than they want of one colour and not enough of the others.
quinney, I had to zoom in pretty far to see their eyes, they're tiny!
|Posted by: andromedae Mar 19 2017, 01:38 PM|
|Those Crystal ones are a pain in the butt to catch. The faint markings ones look quite pretty, got my pair fairly easily. The sprite for the Crystal ones, however is one I'm not a fan of. Very blurry indeed and not much detail. Hope they look better as adults.|
|Posted by: NekoA Mar 19 2017, 01:43 PM|
|So happy to get new eggs!|

Just abondoned my blue eggs except two and now I'll go for green and red!

| Well I've given up on getting a Volcano baby for a bit, with 130+ people in there my odds are tiny. Can't wait to see what these grow up to look like though!
edit: people are so kind, I started to tear up, thank you! You know who you are!
|Posted by: kittyrules2003 Mar 19 2017, 02:10 PM|
| Just a tip for hunting, the St. Patrick Site Skin loads faster with biomes. I got every egg I wanted at almost every drop I went to. Also, spamming CTRL + R to refresh and CTRL + LEFT CLICK (opens the egg in a NEW TAB) on the eggs gives me more chances on collecting eggs. Just hope you don't click a normal egg haha
Anyways, what's the cave time / egg drop right now?
|Posted by: Queenofdragons6 Mar 19 2017, 02:12 PM|
I just wish I didn't have to put up with this five hour "can't abandon/teleport" new egg period.
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Mar 19 2017, 02:16 PM|
Crystal vein eggs are blue right now, if that's what you're asking.
|Posted by: walkinslow Mar 19 2017, 02:19 PM|
|Done - got a pair each of blue, green and red crystal eggs and a single faint markings egg. But I really wish we had an 8th egg slot...|
|Posted by: kittyrules2003 Mar 19 2017, 02:21 PM|
Thanks, grabbed my last blue haha.
I honestly feel bad for those who say they have no chance getting eggs, I genuinely find it really easy to snag new releases with one new release per biome.
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 19 2017, 02:24 PM|
| Color drop times for crystal eggs in volcano (and maybe alpine).
12am cave time-blue
12pm cave time-blue
Edit: We are halfway through blue drops.
|Posted by: Nectaris Mar 19 2017, 02:33 PM|
Personally I am shocked it happened this weekend, as I was planning on being away the next one, and it ALWAYS seems to be a release on the few weekends I am not around on.
|Posted by: Windy Mar 19 2017, 02:34 PM|
|Best eggs ever. I have 4 of the blue ones right now.|
|Posted by: Pinch of StarDust Mar 19 2017, 02:41 PM|

Thanks TJ and spriters
|Posted by: Natakiro Mar 19 2017, 02:42 PM|
| Aw, other eggs are cycling back in and I haven't gotten any of the volcanoes yet D: I click through like 20 per drop and haven't managed to nab one.
I wasn't expecting the new releases until maybe next week, so I didn't stay up late like I usually do to grab them. :/
They're both very pretty, though ^^ Can't wait to see the adults.
|Posted by: Chococat0815 Mar 19 2017, 02:47 PM|
| Alright, now I've locked myself with two faint ones, two red crystals and two blue crystals as well as one Gilded Bloodscale. I have to try for the green ones later on
Happy hunting everyone!
|Posted by: saltywench Mar 19 2017, 02:54 PM|
| Welp, it took 3 hours, but I now have my two of each color and the one that looks like a speedo dragon.
Now to influence! Woot. I am sooooo glad I kept all my slots open just in case, LOL
|Posted by: xXAngelicEvilXx Mar 19 2017, 03:05 PM|
|Yay, a release! Freed up a couple spots and got two faint markings and two red crystals! Will have to wait a couple days to get the rest. Thanks, TJ and spriter(s)!|
|Posted by: Merlot Mar 19 2017, 03:10 PM|
|lol I have to give up for now so hope they will be around and easy to catch as I need 1 red and 1 blue crystal but with so many in there I have no chance. Love the new releases though|
|Posted by: nuttymeg3 Mar 19 2017, 03:14 PM|
| I just went onto the trading thread and was like when I saw all the trading posts about eggs I'd never seen before. I definitely wasn't expecting a release this weekend!
Anyways, I'm locked currently so I'll grab the crystal ones later but I'm very grateful to everyone who figured out the hourly rotation so I won't grab too many of one color. Also, thanks to TJ and the spriters for this fun release! The hatchie sprites of the "faint markings" ones are lovely. Happy hunting everyone!
|Posted by: prismatika Mar 19 2017, 03:21 PM|
|It's when we have releases like this that I desperately wish we could have eight egg slots. I'm locked and will have get another green crystal later so I can have a pair of each. All the same, a great release. I love the hatchlings and can't wait to see the adults!|
|Posted by: andromedae Mar 19 2017, 03:21 PM|
|Ugh, I accidentally grabbed a Magma while catching the crystalline ones. I'll gift it later once it's off cooldown in the departures thread I did get a red one in my attempt, however!|
|Posted by: Daypaw Mar 19 2017, 03:42 PM|
| Managed to trade off the extra blues I grabbed this morning for reds and greens; now have a pair of all 3 + one lonely blue egg, wish I could grab a mate for it :<
Can't wait to see the hatchies~
|Posted by: Natakiro Mar 19 2017, 04:11 PM|
| Ugh, I give up on those volcanoes; have had a tough day and I just need to pass out in my bed; not enough time to search fruitlessly like I have for the past few hours. Hope these are still available later on tonight and hopefully early tomorrow; that would be nice ^^
EDIT: Spaz-clicked around and managed to get 3, so I'm locked. Not the color I wanted, but I'm not gonna be picky! Maybe I'll try to trade for the other two later on to get one of each.
|Posted by: silver_chan Mar 19 2017, 04:19 PM|
The crystals? I can't see their eyes either, but the whole body is clearly distinct colors.
I do criticize how pixelated and blurry they look as babies, but maybe that's intentional. I hope the adults are a little more fleshed out, though.
|Posted by: daba555 Mar 19 2017, 04:32 PM|
| oh, great....new release.
would be nice if there were actually eggs in the volcano, at least for the first day.
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Mar 19 2017, 04:35 PM|
Remember that eggs are generated on the five minute marks. During new releases, the biomes will clear out more quickly, but I just peeked in the volcano and saw two new eggs out of the first three I looked out. ;3
|Posted by: spring_dragon Mar 19 2017, 04:38 PM|
they will be available...they are a permanent addition to the cave.
|Posted by: irrelevantindigo Mar 19 2017, 04:40 PM|

Maybe someday I'll get my paws on these shiny new dragons. :0
|Posted by: silver_chan Mar 19 2017, 04:51 PM|
| Sweet, got two each of every crystal color. I'll have to pick up some of the other kind later, haha...
I'm excited to see these guys grow, heh.

|Posted by: okura Mar 19 2017, 05:13 PM|
| Yesss!! New eggs and i had no eggs for once
Just a question, though, the volcano eggs are of a random color? Because I got three and the three came out blue...
Edit: never mind, I found Jazeki's post in the previous page! Will have to trade a blue egg out later :'c

I assume you're talking about the crystal vein eggs? Just saw three in the Volcano. ?
|Posted by: trezz Mar 19 2017, 05:50 PM|
Yes I was, sorry should have been more specific. They're not showing up for me. Maybe my connection is too slow
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Mar 19 2017, 05:51 PM|
Remember that eggs are generated on every five minute mark. Biomes empty out quicker when there is a new release, so you'll need to better time when you look in the biomes, unlike when there's no release and biomes rarely ever empty. Good luck! ^^
|Posted by: bob_jones Mar 19 2017, 05:53 PM|
|I got seven eggs of the same color before I found out there were different colors to catch. Darn.|
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Mar 19 2017, 05:54 PM|
Good news is, there's a lot of people asking for color swaps in the Trading section, so you can either trade for different colors or wait for the color hour you need. ^^
|Posted by: MisaTange Mar 19 2017, 06:08 PM|
| Wait, I just realized TJ's eggs have hatched...
Are the crystal hatchlings blind or something?
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Mar 19 2017, 06:12 PM|
They have leetle eyes. I find the eyes on the red hatchie stand out more, but you can zoom in to see them better on all the sprites.

|Posted by: purplehaze Mar 19 2017, 07:12 PM|
| I just got back to try again for some more now that some other eggs hatched. I spaz clicked and got a Diamondwing, but somehow got a green new release, too, that I never got the code page for. Just went to my scroll after the hour drop and there it was. I have one more space and will probably wait another hour to try to catch a blue. I got two of the reds earlier today before I went out. I really, really wish we could have up to 8 egg slots -- pretty please, TJ?
It's hard to see much detail on the hatchies, but they are so small! Hopefully the adults will show more detail.
|Posted by: bluesonic1 Mar 19 2017, 07:14 PM|
| Thank you spriters, looking forward to seeing the adults, especially of the crystal dragon
Just a note for others, I've done extensive searching into the Alpine rumours and can say with 95% certainty that the crystal eggs are not dropping there. This includes checking the scrolls of users who have made claims they got eggs from the Alpine... Anyone is welcome to post a screenshot proving me wrong but at this stage, I think it was just a rumour that got passed around for whatever reasons.
|Posted by: SpikeTheDragon Mar 19 2017, 07:19 PM|
| How odd that one of my eggs has zero clicks even though I keep touching it so many times. LOL Why is that? Must be a glitch. My other eggs have click views.

|Posted by: maylin Mar 19 2017, 08:55 PM|
They do look alike with the whiteish body and orange belly but i'm sure they will be very different adults who will look great together in some lineages
I already plan to breed the faints with Lumina's and the Veins with Gemshards~ x3
|Posted by: Shokomon Mar 19 2017, 08:55 PM|
Also, yay! Got a Bluminae (lol) and a Blue Vein.
Now, to wait to get the other two colors.
Edit: Dangit, no luck on this round.
|Posted by: DragonNighthowler Mar 19 2017, 08:59 PM|
| I'm really intrigued about the three colorful ones. I'm guessing a mana based theme there, so it'll be interesting to try them out with GoN and see what they breed.
The faint ones are just so cute. I wonder what they'll look like once adults.
|Posted by: purplehaze Mar 19 2017, 09:04 PM|

| O ^O The crystal ones have unique sprites from one another?!
I was expecting them just to be recolors of the same sprite.
My hype levels have just gone through the roof.
The ones from the blue eggs is looking super cute, too - hope I can grab some more of those once my first batch hatches.
|Posted by: JoyLeaf41 Mar 19 2017, 09:11 PM|

|Posted by: cbussiere Mar 19 2017, 09:12 PM|
| Where is your fire, little blue boy? Also, it looks like the males will have all-around crests whereas the females all have two curved horns! Assuming I'm reading these teeny sprites right.
And I hope the Luminae and Bluminae will look good together.

| Breed Information
-Falls under Terrae Dragons and above Thunder Dragons
-Bluminae (Fun Nickname)
Biomes: Coast, Jungle
-Falls Under Fever Wyvern and Above Flamingo Wyverns
-All Three colours have Dimorphism
-Blue/Green/Red Veins (Myth)
Biomes: Volcano, Alpine (possible myth)
Notes: These dragons rotate out each hour, it goes Red-->Green-->Blue. The S1 and S2 hatchies seem really blurry to everyone. Have they not been properly finished/polished?
I will continue to add information to this as soon as new information comes out
|Posted by: pixiezbite Mar 19 2017, 09:28 PM|
|I wish we could see the red s2s a little more clearly-esp the males-they seem to be blurry to me-or maybe that's how they are supposed to be?|
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 19 2017, 09:30 PM|
|Oh noooo. The little red crystal male might be my favorite!|

|Could seriously more time to get eggs, you know.|
|Posted by: Pryanka Mar 19 2017, 09:43 PM|
| Omg that little green s2's pose is awesome.
I'm so sad I missed the beginning of this release and everything's all mixed in already D: So there are 2 eggs, but 4 new varieties? And the crystal one is volcano only, and changes every hour? amirite? missing anything vital?
|Posted by: Amberfly Mar 19 2017, 09:49 PM|
|I love the little crystal hatchlings. Such cute poses. I hope the eventual adults are just an energetic and dynamic. The bluminae (love the nickname too) are plainer but I have hopes the adults will cool.|
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 19 2017, 09:51 PM|
The bluminae is a fake name as stated in my breed Information.
|Posted by: pixiezbite Mar 19 2017, 09:53 PM|
|Loving the faints best-they remind me of a little sighthound, which I have 2 of.|
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 09:54 PM|
| The crystals are so cool
And the faints? Ordinary.
|Posted by: Shokomon Mar 19 2017, 09:55 PM|
I don't know if you can consider it a fake nickname if the Artist themselves came up with the name. (Click https://forums.dragcave.net/index.php?showtopic=178509&view=findpost&p=9434976 for original post by Corteo.)
Edit: Looks like I'm not getting any red Veins now.
|Posted by: Odeen Mar 19 2017, 09:57 PM|
|I like both of these breeds so far.|
|Posted by: wbmorgan Mar 19 2017, 10:01 PM|
I've had this happen randomly before and specifically to two the the red crystal eggs I caught last night. I had to go to another browser I wasn't logged in to my scroll with and click it from there to finally get one click to register.

|is it possible crystal color depends on time of day?|
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Mar 19 2017, 10:03 PM|
Crystal color rotates each hour, so in a way, it does depend on time of day. =p
|Posted by: andromedae Mar 19 2017, 10:04 PM|
|I just need one more blue for a full set! Sadly, won't be able to get one for a while. As soon as these hatch, my egg slots are going to be dedicated to IOU fulfillment.|
|Posted by: Shokomon Mar 19 2017, 10:04 PM|
| Dang it! I missed the hour drop!
Now it's going to be really hard to swipe a Vein.
And from what I've been told, Vein eggs' color changes every hour.

so it should be greens now (I think)
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 10:07 PM|
| I really wanted a green...
WHY VIETNAMESE TIME...
|Posted by: wbmorgan Mar 19 2017, 10:16 PM|
Technically, it would be Blue>Red>Green as that is the order they came out from the start.
Oh, for those saying that the Veins were also in Alpine. I SWEAR I saw some in there at the beginning. I didn't know until about 30 minutes in that there was a drop, so I pop in the Cave and as always, started from Alpine and moved through the rest left to right to see what biomes they were in. I KNOW I saw some in Alpine, but in the few seconds it took to get through the other biomes and back to Alpine, it was empty. I figured they had all been grabbed. I never saw more in there again though, so kinda forgot about it. But yeah, I know I saw some there, even if just briefly.
|Posted by: White Fox Mar 19 2017, 10:23 PM|

YES! A GREEN! A GREEN!
|Posted by: Tigerkralle Mar 19 2017, 10:36 PM|
| Yes! New dragons, and they drop where exactly?
I already found some in Volcano (brown with green), and two times (blue with tiny stripes) a new breed in the Coast and the same breed also in the Jungle.
Do i miss a Biome or a certain breed in the same Biomes?
|Posted by: wbmorgan Mar 19 2017, 10:41 PM|
The faint stripes are found in Coast and Jungle, as you noticed. The other falls in Volcano, but it has three color variations. Those colors change hourly. Right now they are the green version. Next hour they will start back at the "beginning" with blue. Then the next hour after that will be red, then green again and so on.
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 10:43 PM|
| Well only in volcano the crystals drop.
And you can get different colors, just wait one hour or less for the other colors to drop(not for the faint ones)
You are getting green which means next is blue
The orders are blue->red->green.
|Posted by: StormBirdRising Mar 19 2017, 10:43 PM|
In the Coast and Jungle are the new ones with faint markings. In the volcano are the 3 different ones of shimmering veins of crystals: blue, red, and green.
|Posted by: Marie19R Mar 19 2017, 10:50 PM|
| I need a blue crystal. *pokes time to move faster*
I'm really loving the crystal's different hatchie poses, they are so cool!
|Posted by: Tigerkralle Mar 19 2017, 10:53 PM|
|Thank you! So i will hunt the other colours and enjoy my new dragons. So glad that i have an army of Pink Dragons.|
|Posted by: silver_chan Mar 19 2017, 11:00 PM|
|Well. These crystal dragons definitely have some personality, now that they've grown to s2! I'm so thrilled I managed to get two of each, and I wish I could have gotten more! Since if the adults are as glorious as these babies are, I suspect they're going to be at least user-driven rare...|
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 19 2017, 11:05 PM|
| Managed to get one faint and one of each crystal colors
The crystals are stunning.

|Come on eggs and hatch so i can get more of the crystal ones.|
|Posted by: Data_Girl_3 Mar 19 2017, 11:45 PM|
| I think it's cool how the crystal hatchings all have different poses depending on their coloring. Normally, it's the same sprite with a different color scheme. But not this time. Kudos to the designers for that one.
The Faint Marking hatchling seems to have an interesting color scheme, too. Blue on the top but red on the bottom? Makes me wonder what the new dragons are.
Also, I saw a new silhouette on the Encyclopedia page. I wonder what this new dragon will be.
|Posted by: Shokomon Mar 19 2017, 11:51 PM|
|So eggs are red now?|
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 19 2017, 11:52 PM|
They are blue until 1am.

|Posted by: fuzzbucket Mar 20 2017, 03:48 AM|
Absolutely ! I was gobsmacked. And I suppose they won't necessarily breed true, and that they will be even more in demand...
Really ? I can't see anything shaded except the three I haven't unlocked yet (which is odd as I had all images showing; I guess they must have developed new info...)
|Posted by: Isuzu Mar 20 2017, 03:49 AM|

Managed to get a pair for each colour, I'm aiming to get the faint marking guys after my current set hatches. Niice.
|Posted by: Zeditha Mar 20 2017, 04:18 AM|
I went on a grabbing spree last night and got about 5 of the reds I just dropped two of them in the AP just now, another is fogged for experimenting.
And dangit, I like the blue ones best, and guess what I have? Greens and reds. I also grabbed a Faint Markings egg, looking forward to seeing these guys all grown up!
|Posted by: Light Concorde Mar 20 2017, 04:28 AM|
|Aww, they're such adorable little things. 4-5 more hours until I can get more.|
|Posted by: Erinthebookworm Mar 20 2017, 05:05 AM|
|I accidentally picked up another blue. I thought it was going to be red this hour, my bad. Since I had three blues, I abandoned one, so to whoever finds it in the Ap, I hope you like it! The cycling colours is such a creative idea, and as much as I love it, it's also fusterating, especially when I'm on mobile when the DC time isn't sitting in front of my face. Ah well, I'll manage.|

Such is the nature of a hourly rotation-based dragon egg.
|Posted by: Yuno_Gasai Mar 20 2017, 06:27 AM|
On a Fresh release, Day 1? Never. EVERYONE will be grabbing them all, thus making none available. New eggs are put in the habitats every 5 minutes though.
|Posted by: jerzeeshadow Mar 20 2017, 06:29 AM|
| What a cool release! The rock eggs and hatchies look fantastic😱
That coloring time scheme is going to drive me nuts....in a good way!😃
Ok, we're definately going to need an image gauge graphic, just like the Lunar Heralds. (Hint,hint)
|Posted by: Shokomon Mar 20 2017, 06:33 AM|
The Bluminae Nickname isn't a myth though. Coreto, the spriter came up with it.
So, even if it's not an actual name for the dragons, it is a legitimate nickname.
Edit: For ref:
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 20 2017, 06:33 AM|
There have been people going around and calling the fell hatchies bluminae
Edit: Thanks Shokomon
|Posted by: coo_ Mar 20 2017, 06:40 AM|
| Oh my gosh the mature hatchies are so cute! I can't wait to see them all grown up.
Looks like the faint lines dragons might pair well with Luminas <3
|Posted by: Shokomon Mar 20 2017, 06:43 AM|
| The image would have to change evey hour, which is way more often than the Lunar colors, which change every 4 to 8 days.
I can ask pinkgothic for how to code the image, but someone else would have to host the image on their website.
|Posted by: Yuno_Gasai Mar 20 2017, 06:52 AM|
Really? This was an unverified rumor last I checked.
Edit: Just joined the 'Oh, look at Shokomon's explainy-post do-hickey!' group. So yes, it is a rumor. That it's the official name. Nicknames are just that: nicknames. Until an official breed name is announced, it's just that. unofficial.
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 20 2017, 06:54 AM|

|I still have no green egg! .__.|
|Posted by: Ripan Mar 20 2017, 07:22 AM|
Just one small correction here.
The Faint eggs drop in the Coast and the Jungle, not the Forest.
Edit: Oh, and one suggested name for the crystal eggs could be "fire-"something.
Edit2: Or maybe "flame-"something?
|Posted by: Corteo Mar 20 2017, 07:29 AM|
| Wow okay guys. When I said that Bluminae was the official breed name I was being facetious. I mean where they sort obviously rules that out. As far as nicknames go, I don't think there is such a thing as an official nickname. So basiclally my point is, let people call them what they want and don't worry about how official it is at least until we have adults.
Point two is that Bluminae is a fun name that I will use to refer to them at least until they grow to adulthood. Hopefully that clears things up.
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 20 2017, 07:37 AM|
Thank you Ripan!

| I didn't even notice there had been a release until now. That's pretty bad. But I've grabbed 2 blue eggs and 5 of the others since they seem to have different colors.

| The S2 Crystals are so cool! I like them much better than the S1 hatchies which looked somewhat unfinished to me.
However, my favourite must be the Blumina hatchie, simply adorable!
To tell the truth, I still feel bad about the Valentine disaster and haven't collected any dragons since then. But I'm glad there is a new release without drama (and I hope it stays that way).

check it out
blue egg has a red membrane inside it
red egg has a teal membrane inside it

|Posted by: purplehaze Mar 20 2017, 09:43 AM|
| Yes, there is some very mean stuff going on around here just now.
But I will also say that there are some wonderfully kind people, too. For example, Celly Bean and her offer to catch crystal eggs for anyone who is having trouble. Also, last night I posted that I hadn't been able to catch a blue in the 9 o'clock hour and would have to stay up to the midnight drop. Within minutes of that post I had two of the blue eggs offered to me by PM. I could only accept one, but I thank you both for the offer. You know who you are.

coast and jungle
This egg has faint markings.
the volcano eggs are more in demand btw

You can. There is a different color egg dropping each hour. Cellybean reposted the color variant chart that I made just above you.

However, I allow people to help me out, so it's not too much of an issue for me.
In any case, keep an eye on your eggs!
Though, I don't even know why people want to view-bomb me. I only have one Vein and one Bluminae.
|Posted by: Sirithiliel Mar 20 2017, 11:08 AM|
|Managed to get 4 blue, because i spam clicked them all after constantly getting to one too late. And three misclicks, so i will have to try for the Red and Green varients, and the other new breed, after they hatch. Hopefully they're still dropping then|
|Posted by: purplehaze Mar 20 2017, 11:13 AM|
Oh, they will still be dropping because they are a permanent release, but they may be in high demand and very hard to get -- at least until everyone gets as many as they want of each color.

|So far, I have a single red, a single blue and two green ones of the crystal dragons; after an hour of hunting yesterday and today. I guess either me or my connection isn't fast enough. Oh well, thank goodness for trading.|
|Posted by: purplehaze Mar 20 2017, 11:20 AM|
Maybe something like the Desipis' tails.
|Posted by: Sirithiliel Mar 20 2017, 11:21 AM|
that's what i meant =P with my luck, i'll never see them after they finish m ixing in with normal eggs and their drop normalizes. I've never seen a CB copper wyvern, or gold, or silver, or even the ice/magma/lightning trio.
Pretty much if it's high demand, i never see them after their initial release *shrug. just how it goes for me

|Maybe it's just me but I'm really terrible at making decisions based on hatchies alone. So far red hatchies are my favorite, but I really need to see the adults to decide which ones I'm going to colorswap. And I hope my current eggs hatch fast so I can finally go grab my my fill of the blue stripe eggs, I am going to be in so much trouble if they start dropping less in couple of days because I didn't get a single one.|

| Ok, I know I'm late for the party, but these Volcano releases are ridiculously hard to get. I feel kind of bad for being so grumpy, but I seriously don't have a clue why this happens release after release and really hope they stop with this kind of nonsense, because it's sucking out all the fun and excitement out of what would normally be a joyous occasion. Really, with three color variants stuck in a single biome what else could have possibly have happened but the sorry state we have now? I hope they save this release and start releasing the new Volcano eggs a bit more frequently, so they can actually be caught. I mean, I'll get these little rascals eventually, but such a release is neither challenging nor fun, just tedious.
Still, awkward release or not, I look forward to seeing all these lovely hatchies as adults and at least the other breed release is fun as these at least can be acquired if one looks hard enough. Thank you to all the artists, I'm sure all the dragons are going to look great!

|Gave away one of my reds, so that I could try to catch a blue. Caught a blue, so now I have one of each color plus three faints. I love love love the crystal's different poses, but I still think the faints are going to be my favorites.|

Hmm by any chance would you be able to try on mobile? I have a crappy 3G connection and was able to catch them with not too much effort in the 5 mins drops even with 100+ people in the biome. I think it's the same with all releases, you have to keep clicking like mad until you get one since everyone is trying simultaneously. Personally I find it harder to hunt on PC. Maybe try by disabling images (chrome) or page style>no style (firefox).

|I hate laptops with no external mouse. I brought my laptop on vacation but forgot to bring my mouse, and I am soooo not used to the built-in mousepad thing. I'm being way too slow to actually grab any crystals. I haven't even seen many.|

just pm me!
|Posted by: Laura-Borealis Mar 20 2017, 12:39 PM|
|Apologies to those who are having trouble getting eggs, but I have to say, this has been a fun and low-stress release for me. I was able to get all three colors of crystals fairly easily. I'll be happy when I can grab a couple more Bluminas though. They're so pretty, I know I'm going to want to stock up. But it will be awhile before I have some slots free.|
|Posted by: cookiecat17 Mar 20 2017, 12:49 PM|
|I was able to catch a lot of reds easily and traded them to get the other colours, its fairly easy thanks to my time zone (I catch them at DC time 4am when nobodys awake)|
|Posted by: TerraAnne Mar 20 2017, 12:50 PM|
| Been reading through this thread since the release. At first when they all dropped en masse within the volcano biome I thought "okay so I should be fast enough to grab some in a day or two after my egg locked self gets some free slots. "
lol. Now only a day and a half, two days later and they are only dropping a single egg in the volcano biome with 80 people all trying to get it. I had one slot open when the first drops went so I was eventually able to get one green crystal egg, but I feel that with the tablet I'm working off of I won't stand a chance to get any more. Believe me I have tried and tried for hours to get just a few more today and yesterady.. I hope they keep dropping for like a week or more until the want for them goes down. Then I'll be able to get some more crystals.
I'm loving that blumina sprite though they are so pretty! They were easy enough eggs to get.

This is an appropriate response.

Tis another green. I suppose I should wait an hour for other color crystals now. Crystal eggy count up to 2

|Oh man, it's harder to get the crystal thingies now. I've got a single green one with a tiny bit of patient staring at the screen, it was worth it. I assume the next hour is blue?|
|Posted by: TerraAnne Mar 20 2017, 01:12 PM|
|Yeah the blues should be next, and then reds after.|
|Posted by: Light Concorde Mar 20 2017, 01:14 PM|
And I'm silly with my plans, I've decided to collect the set of blue faints instead <.< Yay.
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 20 2017, 01:16 PM|
Bumping this up as well. For those still hunting, you have 45 minutes of green left.
|Posted by: TerraAnne Mar 20 2017, 01:16 PM|
|I honestly have no idea what I'm going to pair these up with yet. I don't think I'll know until I see the adult sprites. Though I'm tempted by pairing the crystals with the older gemshards.|
|Posted by: purplehaze Mar 20 2017, 01:32 PM|
|Every time I try to think what I will pair a new breed with based on just the hatchling, the adults end up changing my mind! They could be interesting with Gemshards, though, because of the colors. I wonder if they will breed with the same mechanics as the cave drops -- color depends on the hour they are bred?|
|Posted by: StormBirdRising Mar 20 2017, 01:48 PM|
|I've only seen 1 Crystal Egg in the last 15 minutes in the Volcano. Are they dropping somewhere else now?|
|Posted by: TerraAnne Mar 20 2017, 01:50 PM|
|These would be the first dragons to breed certain colors depending on what hour they were bred I think. It makes things interesting when trying to breed for certain colors with more uncommon breeds. o.O|
|Posted by: kittyrules2003 Mar 20 2017, 01:52 PM|
|Ahh! I'm so in love with these mature hatchlings! I'm so getting an army haha!|
|Posted by: Marie19R Mar 20 2017, 01:58 PM|
|Omg I'll be frustrated if they breed depending on hour. Although it might be cool to have that kind of mechanic in the game. I'll just have to make post-it notes to remind me when to breed.|
|Posted by: dragongirl02 Mar 20 2017, 02:05 PM|
|Just found out about this earlier today grabbed two of "This egg has faint markings" eggs but no luck with the new crystal one so far trying to catch them results in nothing or misclicks for me.|
|Posted by: silver_chan Mar 20 2017, 02:18 PM|
If they do breed by hour, it'll at least be better than random chance! I think it's a very interesting idea.
ETA: I'll probably breed them with the Gemshards, if only because the colors match lol.

| Gah, having an extremely hard time getting any crystals. >~<
Edit: Complaining always works <3 Just caught one lol. Too bad it is blue. I'll have to see about trading for a Red one
|Posted by: stagazer_7 Mar 20 2017, 02:41 PM|
Thanks for the tips, I'll try my luck on the mobile. I think my chrome is working pretty ok, but the laptop I'm using is kind of old and slow + my internet connection is average (plus my reflexes are kind of derpy ) and so I'm not well equipped to hunt at the moment. Heh, I know the drill with the new releases, a clickfest all around, requiring both time and patience (both of which I'm also lacking at the moment ), and I'm sure I'll get them rascals soon(-ish), but I was hoping for a fun challenge (lasting a few hrs max) and some releases deliver on this and some sadly don't.
What frustrated me at the time I wrote my previous post is that this happening was more then obvious and they still made the release scarce... I know I should have gotten used by now, but it still irks me when they make releases unnecessarily difficult.
Good luck to all still hunting!

|Descriptions and locations anybody? Came a little late to the party|
|Posted by: Romulan Mar 20 2017, 02:59 PM|
"This egg has faint markings." is the Coast and Jungle one.
I still dont have any of the Volcano ones, its a similar egg description but comes
in 3 different colors depending on the hr of the day.
"This rough egg has shimmering veins of blue crystal running across
"This rough egg has shimmering veins of red crystal running across its surface."
"This rough egg has shimmering veins of green crystal running across
|Posted by: Romulan Mar 20 2017, 03:03 PM|
I was a bit late to the party last night, due to RL, and I still cant catch any Volcanoes.
Twice I had miss clicks that I had the 5hr wait to abandon. If you look at Volcano there are still over 70 ppl at any given time camping in the biome.
Is there any chance that a new release is just the new release in the biome for 2 full days?
I think that might help people who have slower internet connections and balance out with the number of current players.
|Posted by: Cecona Mar 20 2017, 03:07 PM|
|I am so upset, someone decided to view bomb my eggs and hatchlings after I went to sleep and ended up killing ALL my new release eggs.|
|Posted by: WatersMoon110 Mar 20 2017, 03:29 PM|
| So, the colors drop on the same hours every day? It seems like today is the same as yesterday.
Also, the Volcano shuffles on the 5mins have been pretty funny. For a second it's all new eggs again, and then they are all gone when I refresh.
That is so very, very sad. (Also counter-productive, as now they'll have one more competitor for catching new eggs.) So, they are a short-sighted jerk.
That is very sucky, and I wish you all the best luck at catching new eggs.

You should fog your eggs when you're afk, definitely overnight.

|Posted by: MisaTange Mar 20 2017, 04:18 PM|
Addition to Romulan's comment: The caveborn eggs show up as "This rough egg has shimmering veins of crystal running across its surface.", i.e. you can't tell its color until you've picked it up, or you've been looking at Jazeki's guide that's being reposted every now and again.
|Posted by: Shokomon Mar 20 2017, 04:19 PM|

I just want one of each???
Is that so wrong???

I don't think viewbombers care about that. They are onlne bullies. Trying to hurt people because they think it's fun.
|Posted by: MhKhu Mar 20 2017, 04:56 PM|
| Was easy to catch late yesterday but only on a beast pro-gaming computer... on a slow average laptop the Volcano ones were completely not catchable no matter the reflexes.
Just hope to make colours swaps.
I have one point for TJ to seriously consider though - with such a big and growing playerbase new release 5min drops should spawn at the very least least 5x more eggs that it does now. So people at least have SOMETHING to even compete for (and not just those with beast computers like the one I and my gf's cousin could switch to).
|Posted by: Alectrona Mar 20 2017, 05:03 PM|
I'd bet the colour they come out depends on the time you breed them, like with the in-cave drops. That should make for some colourful lineages!
|Posted by: Husky51 Mar 20 2017, 05:26 PM|
| I have only been able to get two of the light blue ones, two red crystalline and dang lucky to get a green crystalline, no matter how hard I try using Jazeki's time chart.
As for the 5 min drops, If I am lucky, I get to see maybe two release eggs dropped before they stop... Unluckily, I have ended up with three mis-click eggs that I have had to abandon, including one red right after I got the green and it was at 2am when they both should have been green...
This is more frustrating that I've had to do for awhile...
Other than that, Thanks to the Spriters and TJ for this drop... I'll just have to keep trying, but for now I have to go...
|Posted by: cbussiere Mar 20 2017, 05:29 PM|
I really hope so, that way we'd have full potential for varied-color lineages but without any frustrating random chance.
|Posted by: dragonpuck Mar 20 2017, 05:29 PM|
they seem to be gone already, probably because the system sees them as all the same
BUT therr are THREE colors
TJ ,please adjust so that we can all get some?

|Posted by: cbussiere Mar 20 2017, 05:57 PM|
They're still dropping at the 5-minute intervals, but seemingly no more than few at a time and they're going wicked quick. I've been trying for the past ~20 minutes without catching one.

|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 20 2017, 10:17 PM|

| Those hatchlings are adorable. I like the male red one; it looks like it's asleep.
They're nigh impossible to get though. I accidentally refreshed on the 5 minute mark and there was one egg there and it was gone in a fraction of a second... Lordy I thought it would taper down a bit since yesterday but nope, still going like hot cakes.

| I may not like that it's just another shiny for the ever growing pile but I do hope they end up as true rares and not like xenowyrms where they are just uncommon and just in high demand.
I hope these guys end up being rare, and I really, really, really, hope and wish that they will end up as rares golds or at least silvers, and I REALLY hope more true rares get added to the game either way.
I felt the same with sapphires...and was very disappointed.

I don't want every new dragon practically handed to me on a silver platter like they have been. Uncommon after uncommon, with a few commons thrown in as well, there's no challenge to them!
No one else seems to share my views on this though so it probably isn't gonna change :/
Anyone out there wish there were more true rares to hunt?

|Almost have two hatchies. :> A red and blue walnut. I still need to catch a green, but I got sidetracked by lowtime AP olives. xP Have two faint markings but they're not close to hatching yet.|
|Posted by: AveryCF Mar 20 2017, 11:54 PM|
| Ahhhh so I managed to get two of the "faint markings" ones after a bit of a struggle, so it seems I now join the many who are waiting for every five minutes to pass in the volcano. Not only do I need all the colors- but I want TWO of each color.
...Looks like I won't be sleeping tonight most likely... x'D
EDIT: I JUST saw one but someone snagged it before me. x'D Darn it!

| I would settle for 1 crystal of any color...just one? Please? Y'all need to go to bed so I can hunt in peace
About ready to say 'Bleep it'. Been hunting pretty much nonstop for the past I don't know how long. I've seen a few hundred of these eggs and I haven't managed to catch even one! Why? Because I'm broke AF and can't afford super computers like everyone else...I'm stuck with a crappy kindle that can't even be bother to register the first frantic stab at the screen! Might have to boycott these stupid eggs...they are worse then freakin xenos!

|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Mar 21 2017, 01:40 AM|
They're a permanent release. They're not gone; they're just not flooding and being nabbed very quickly when they do show up.
Whoop, two hatchies! But I'm completely locked, so still can't hunt for a green.
|Posted by: Pluviophillia Mar 21 2017, 01:44 AM|
|Are the crystal eggs rare or do the players make them "rare"?|
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Mar 21 2017, 01:45 AM|
It's hard to know this soon after the release. I don't think I see them as much as the faint markings, so they might be uncommon or slightly uncommon, but I think we need more time to know. =o
|Posted by: blockEdragon Mar 21 2017, 02:28 AM|
| No, nope, nope, nope, they are not gonna be uncommon, in fact, they are going to be as rare as golds or silvers and the cave will be forever enriched by a new challenge and there will be something new to hunt besides the two options and it will be wonderful and then 10 more actual rares will be added in the next few releases and those releases will all have original and cool designs that all don't rely on shininess to be appealing and will bring balance to the cave with their rareness!
Anyone who says the crystal is uncommon is a liar who hates puppies and kittens, and joy, and good gameplay.
Sock, why do you lie and hate puppies, kittens, joy, and good gameplay?
HAVE YOU NO SOUL?!
>:( are you a DC sith lord who doesn't want balance brought to the cave-force?
>:O I bet you're VAMPIRE DC SITH LORD!
>>>::::OOOOO I bet you're even a PIRATE VAMPIRE DC SITH LORD!
How does your unbeating, puppy-hating, heart of darkness use the force without a soul?!
Van-ninja-skywalker is coming for your boat right after he finishes snuggling puppies, telling the truth, making rares for the cave and loving joy!
(I hope people realize this is a joke)
|Posted by: TheCompleteAnimorph Mar 21 2017, 02:33 AM|
|Personally I'm all for more true rares but I hope the pretty crystal-ey dragons aren't, because a true rare with alternate colorations that's only available in a single biome would be suffering.|
|Posted by: blockEdragon Mar 21 2017, 02:34 AM|
YA kidding?! That would be AWESOME!
|Posted by: silver_chan Mar 21 2017, 02:37 AM|
| I'm ambivalent on the matter since now that I have two of each color and they're properly influenced, I won't bother hunting any more if they do turn out to be rare. I have way too much going on in my life to have time to hunt anything that's 'truly rare'!
But I would like more rares, if only to knock Golds and Silvers off their perches a little bit.
This is why I'm so grateful I have a gold trophy.
|Posted by: arjunvohra Mar 21 2017, 02:41 AM|
| The crystal hatchlings are probably the best s2s I've ever seen on the site!
The detail on their wings! Specially the blue male and green female!
|Posted by: TheCompleteAnimorph Mar 21 2017, 02:45 AM|
I respectfully disagree. I don't think it'd be very fun. A true rare that's got one sprite set, don't care if it's dimorphic or not, and appears in multiple biomes, that I'd find more fun.
|Posted by: kjym16 Mar 21 2017, 02:51 AM|
|I don't think the new crystals become rare like Gold, Silver. But would be quite high value.|
|Posted by: blockEdragon Mar 21 2017, 02:51 AM|
Yea but then you get the fun of having three true rares in one that also only drop in the most underappreciated biome of the group!
But I wanna see new true rares of all kinds, maybe even a true rare specific to each biome!
And seeing other users who want rares gives me hope.
"I don't think the new crystals become rare like Gold, Silver. But would be quite high value."-kjym
i'm bad at making more then one quote sooooo this is the best I can do.
That's more of a hope then what I actually think will happen, but I do think golds and silvers need some rivals, it will help to lessen the strain on all rares without having to make any one rare more common and just be plain more fun.
Actually, the lack of variety with true rares is partially why the two options are too hard to get (not everything is black and white), I saw a guy compare it to a vegetable truck of sorts
imagine a vegetable truck, with a few fruits thrown in once in a while, but there are only two kinds of true fruits (the rest are tomatos I guess...just stick with me)
now imagine every new refill almost only adds in vegetables, obviously it's gonna be even harder to find a fruit with each vegetable added,
But then more kids of fruits are added in, all fruits stay equally rare, but getting A fruit is easier then before.
This is why I want new true rares so much, but they don't help the truck theory either, more and more uncommons and the occasional common are added in which makes the true rares go from rare to near impossible, with only 2 kinds of rares/fruit and more and more common/uncommons/vegetables added each month no wonder the two kinds of rares/fruits available are so sought after, we have nothing else to strive for!
And of course the best catchers get them first, the best wins the competition, that's how it works and that's why egg limits exist.

|I dont see many crystals dropping just 2 at the full hour and I wasnt able to catch even one!|
|Posted by: dragongirl02 Mar 21 2017, 03:29 AM|
|Sigh still not having luck with those crystals they seem to be getting harder to catch. The most they are doing is driving me nuts. Plus, I'm getting sleepy any longer and I think I'm going to fall asleep near the computer. Normally, I have better luck since I normal get warned of the release within a day of it happening.|
|Posted by: AveryCF Mar 21 2017, 03:59 AM|
|Part of me is hoping TJ will up the drop rate a bit, even if it's only for a small time... That way the eggs wouldn't be so scares at least for their release. Seems to many are struggling in even getting a single one, yet alone multiple colors or MULTIPLES of any color like if they wanted two reds, maybe two blues, heck even green. Can't forget the green guys too. ;3;|
|Posted by: Fortune86 Mar 21 2017, 04:06 AM|
|What colour is dropping now?|
|Posted by: Loki.Dottir Mar 21 2017, 04:10 AM|
| Oh my gosh. I missed the drop? Or... What? What in the wide wide world of sports is a goin' on?
Can anyone please let me know what to look for? I keep seeing just the usual eggs in all the biomes. And if I missed out on anything entirely...? It'd be greatly appreciated. <3
They look really pretty, by the way! I hope I can at least get one of each! (Ideally, I usually go for having at least one male and one female of a new release, but it seems like it might be difficult this time around...)
|Posted by: wbmorgan Mar 21 2017, 04:12 AM|
Green just started.
|Posted by: Shokomon Mar 21 2017, 04:26 AM|
Well considering I haven't seen a CB gold in the cave since I last caught one, I can sympathize with the disinterest in these guys becoming true rares.
It'd be good for trade because it would mean you have another rare to barter with.
But it would be bad for trade because the same people who get all the golds/silvers/etc would be the same people getting the Veins. (aka people with really good internet, great reflexes, AND a large amount of free time to hunt.
And it would be worse than hunting for golds or silvers because you only have one biome to choose from instead of all of them, so everyone hunting veins would be focused on that one biome. Difficulty hunting in the Volcano biome will be considerably higher than other biomes because of these guys. Though, the biome may move more due to more focus being on it.
But, anyway, that's just my opinion.
Edit: Though, the idea of a rare per biome is not a bad one. I always like more dragons.
|Posted by: fuzzbucket Mar 21 2017, 04:27 AM|
Crystal eggs in the volcano: This rough egg has shimmering veins of crystal running across its surface. - there are three colours and the one dropping changes every hour. The schedule is in the wiki.
Blue-ish ones in coast and jungle: This egg has faint markings.
|Posted by: SilverQuetzal Mar 21 2017, 04:30 AM|
I agree. I had never so much trouble. I dont see any new egg beause they vanish bevor the page reloads for me! (slow internet)
|Posted by: Loki.Dottir Mar 21 2017, 04:31 AM|
Thank you so very much! <3 I got one blue-ish one so far.
|Posted by: blockEdragon Mar 21 2017, 04:31 AM|
| *goes back and reads comments*
Man,a lot of people HATE challenge and effort, that's just how rares work guys, stop expecting floods to practically hand them to us! Hunting is a competition, I know it's been a while but sometimes things won't be as easy as just going to the biome and leisurely grabbing an egg like you're in a henhouse while the chickens are out eating.
its fine to be a little frustrated when you miss but expecting TJ to alter the drops simply because they are hard to get makes NO sense.
|Posted by: SilverQuetzal Mar 21 2017, 04:34 AM|
If you have no problems and want a challenge then go and catch them for us! I would like a pair of each colour please.
|Posted by: Fortune86 Mar 21 2017, 04:38 AM|
*hunkers down and waits for red*
Just need one more.
|Posted by: Pluviophillia Mar 21 2017, 04:43 AM|
|I would like them to be "rare" like the Blusangs and Coppers are considered|
|Posted by: blockEdragon Mar 21 2017, 04:45 AM|
I'd love to, but my eggslots are full I challenged myself to catch breeding pairs of all the colors plus an extra!
it wasn't easy but not everything should be
Go catch your own ya lazy uncommon!
(relax it's a joke)
they're actually not rares, neither are gold wyverns or xenowyrms,
they are all just uncommons in high demand, of course the demand means a lot of breeding so the demand + constant breeding = very uncommon but not rare.
Trios and the joke breeds are the only rares in between.
|Posted by: Loki.Dottir Mar 21 2017, 05:22 AM|
This is what I do with my rares, for the exact same reason. All I have is one non-influenced bluish egg right now, but with this site my goal is to have at least one of each breed, ideally, a pair of each would be great if possible, and especially if they have dimorphism... so... Kinda disappointing how hard it is to get even a single crystal-ish egg right now.
I feel the very last line of this just soooooooo much.
And it's not that I dislike a challenge. In fact I like a challenge, which is part of why I'd like to have at least one of every breed. I just have a lot of challenges of my own in my life, and duties that I need to tend to. And I have to pick my battles. It's enough of a challenge already to try to make time to hunt down the rares I don't have yet, let alone three more.
That said, I could understand it being fun for some if they were rare. But just, it won't be any fun for others. So I'm a bit conflicted on my opinion, though I sorta hope they're not rare, or I could, at the very least at all, get one of each before they end up being impossible to find.
|Posted by: TigersLover Mar 21 2017, 05:23 AM|
|That feeling when you just knew there will be a release these days and still somehow miss it *headdesk* I got 2 Bluminas and 2 green veined ones last night but I seem to have no luck regarding the red and blue ones. I barely see one before they are snatched, even at the hourly release, and I have good Internet and I'm on my tablet which should make things easier . Ah well, with some luck I'll get some more ! Good luck everyone!|
|Posted by: Pluviophillia Mar 21 2017, 05:26 AM|
That's why I said "rare"
I wasn't really calling them rare
Just really uncommon because players hunt them too much
|Posted by: Husky51 Mar 21 2017, 05:33 AM|
| Thanks for the drop to all those who were responsible for it, but severely disappointed by how early the mixing started... Three or four days would have been nice. Thank you... Seems almost impossible to get any now... Ya finally see one, click, and either its already taken or you've mis-clicked...
Good night, All...

I hope it's okay to bump this. I had to hunt it down, so I figured others might appreciate it too.
So I gotta wait till 8 for another chance at a green! Great, I could use a bit more sleep
|Posted by: quinney Mar 21 2017, 05:58 AM|
|Well, I was hoping to be there on the hour for the blue drop, but my eggs are so stubborn, it ain't going to happen! Three days 22 and they don't want to hatch. I so want another blue for a pair. - It's going to be a long hour for me...|
|Posted by: Fortune86 Mar 21 2017, 06:05 AM|
|Whoa these eggs shift fast.|
|Posted by: Shokomon Mar 21 2017, 06:06 AM|
*quotes my bit*
That makes sense. Though for the analogy, it's more like there are 5 trucks filled with vegetables of varying different origins, and in all 5 trucks you can find the rare 2 kinds of true fruit.
Then, a new true fruit is introduced, but only in the Volcanic Produce truck. Now everyone is crowding the volcano truck to get the new fruit, and people are rarely stuff from the other trucks. So, the vegetables sit longer before being tossed out, blocking access to the fruit in the other trucks.
Doesn't change your point though.
Though, one thing that might help to avoid a situation like above is that if new true fruit for every truck were introduced at the same time, forcing people to search through multiple carts at once, but eh.
Now I want dragonfruit.
|Posted by: Loki.Dottir Mar 21 2017, 07:25 AM|
| =\ Welp, looks like maybe I should give up on trying to catch any crystal eggs for this morning... I'll try again later on and hope maybe I can grab one, maybe.
I wouldn't mind more rares if maybe the flood times for those particular breeds on their release went on a little longer. That's just off the top of my head, though, I'm no expert on this kinda stuff.
I wish good luck to everyone. Have a nice morning. and they're still super pretty looking, thank you to all who put them together.
|Posted by: ab613 Mar 21 2017, 07:38 AM|
I fear things would be even more chaotic if people knew in advance which breeds would be rares (which they would, if rares had a longer initial release than commons). Everyone would want to grab them before they disappeared, even moreso than we do now.
|Posted by: stagazer_7 Mar 21 2017, 07:45 AM|
I don't think it's unreasonable to expect finding new release dragons during a new release... I'm fine with facing a challenge and don't mind sitting down and grinding for eggs (though I hardly enjoy it), but not finding any dragons in an empty Volcano biome can hardly be called a challenge - there's plenty of words for it, but a challenge is not one of them. Still, I'm happy at least some people find enough challenge in it and stay optimistic.
But I truly do still hope TJ saves this release, because it it weren't for the Bluminas, which fortunately dropped fairly commonly, this release would have been a complete disaster. Definitely one of the most botched ones in recent memory and I've been here a while.

|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 21 2017, 07:55 AM|
My thing is that people are/were greedy. I have two green eggs, a red, and a blue (which hatched). I did grab more, however, I was graciously giving the ones I already nabbed to people the couldn't get one with all the one hundred people fighting over the eggs in the volcano. Do I like to collect pairs? Yes. Do I love giving out free gifts to people who are discouraged about how they can't a new rare egg? Absolutely! (Don't get me started on how many Aeons I gifted during their release)

|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 21 2017, 08:02 AM|
Well, to be fair, you got all these other eggs mixed in and you have to clear the biome out in order for the eggs to appear. I managed to snag another blue one for the male I need
|Posted by: SilverQuetzal Mar 21 2017, 08:04 AM|
Even with the Aoen I was able to get a pair but this release here now. ..Not one single volcano egg... If I would be able to get one great! I could breed it to collect the other later but so... And when offering new release everyone always want CB gold/siver for new release eggs. Which is sad because not everyone has such CB gold/silvers.

|maybe its like how it was with the dark lumina where they only appear incave for a certain time frame. that would explain why no faint markings eggs are showing up as they dont seem to be in as much demand as the crystal eggs so it wouldnt make sense for them to be more rare (user driven rarity) imo|

| to those of you who are depending on me for the crystal eggs i am all out of magis at the moment so please have a dummy egg ready to send to me once i have your crystal(s) c:
just got the second red crystal just need to get one more for other people!

|I think I need to give up on hunting I need to get to work o.o Also I still have one CB bitten vampire egg up for grabs pm me|
|Posted by: Amaterasu-sama Mar 21 2017, 09:22 AM|
|Crystals have become very difficult to nab right now because they are not appearing often in top 3 eggs of shuffle and no one picks the other eggs so everything is in a limbo. Plus lots of people hunting after first batch of eggs hatched, I guess I will wait until tomorrow to grab more. There's like 1 egg coming in many shuffles and 100+ people. lol|
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 21 2017, 09:26 AM|
if you need help catching anything just let me know!
hmmmm no crystal eggs in this 5 min shuffle thats a shame
|Posted by: ZenithNadir Mar 21 2017, 09:30 AM|
| Just shoved one of my new release eggs from the Coast biome into a 2-way trade... Maybe someone will bite and offer to trade a crystal egg. I'm still missing blue
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 21 2017, 09:30 AM|
|no crystal eggs this 5 min drop either|
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 21 2017, 09:31 AM|
|Hmmm....I am no longer seeing the new eggs in the five minute shuffle|
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 21 2017, 09:31 AM|
hopefully they start appearing again soon or maybe we'll just have to wait for the hourly drop
|Posted by: ZenithNadir Mar 21 2017, 09:32 AM|
|Ah nooo D: If the release ends I'll be lurking in the Volcano biome for a LONG time trying to catch the CBs I missed|
|Posted by: SilverQuetzal Mar 21 2017, 09:33 AM|
Could you hold one egg for some hours? I have to go to work and I can not wait longer or I wil be to late. Please! ;w;
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 21 2017, 09:34 AM|
its still a permanent release my guess is just that the ratios finally caught up
its starting to look like these crystal guys may be rare imo
nope! just missed two of them this drop
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 21 2017, 09:35 AM|
sure of course!
|Posted by: pollyfirstfirst Mar 21 2017, 09:36 AM|
|Ehhhhhh. My eggs are at 4 days 2 hours and still haven't even started cracking . I've now added them to two more hatcheries. Hatch eggie. *stares at egg* HATCH.|
|Posted by: SilverQuetzal Mar 21 2017, 09:37 AM|
Thank you so much! QwQ
|Posted by: ZenithNadir Mar 21 2017, 09:39 AM|
I hope they aren't too rare, although to be honest I have enjoyed the challenge of trying to complete my CB Xeno collection so it might be neat trying to get more CBs of these guys. This has been a cool release so far, I can't remember the last time I was this impatient waiting for a nest to hatch!
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 21 2017, 09:41 AM|
| i agree with you challenges are fun c:
no crystal eggs this drop
no crystal eggs at the :45 drop either
|Posted by: 11th Mar 21 2017, 09:47 AM|
It's not helping that hatcheries are overloaded with new release and AP eggs, because the AP is ER now.
Remember to go spread some UVs, everyone! Even if you just go, view all of the ER and leave, every bit helps.
By the way: What color crystal eggs are dropping at the moment, if anyone knows?
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 21 2017, 09:47 AM|
I think these are slow to hatch. My blue crystal went down to 3 days 22 hours before it hatched and it was at the final stage the whole time.
Edit: Red is dropping for a few more minutes. http://dragcave.wikia.com/wiki/Currently_Being_Released
|Posted by: Amaterasu-sama Mar 21 2017, 09:49 AM|
I don't think they are rare, the coppers all but disappeared completely after initial few hours of release. That these are still dropping after two days is good news.
EDIT: Thanks cellybean for the offer. I like hunting lol I'll make it work haha
|Posted by: quinney Mar 21 2017, 09:49 AM|
At 3 days 22 hours, mine still took 50 minutes to hatch.
ETA: They were in four ER's as well.
|Posted by: Pluviophillia Mar 21 2017, 09:51 AM|
| Can eggs/hatchlings get sick from clicks?
All my new release hatchlings got 6-7 clicks each in the last 5 minutes... the views and unique views are fine though
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 21 2017, 09:51 AM|
| missed a crystal egg on this drop
hourly drop is gonna be here soon theres bound to be some good stuff
seems like im being viewbombed :/ dunno why since im not even keeping the eggs for myself im catching them for other people
|Posted by: 11th Mar 21 2017, 09:53 AM|
I know that time chart already. According to a conversation in chat last night, blue was dropping at 2AM instead of 12AM, and the times have shifted. If that's correct, then green is dropping now and blue is next.
Edit: Just saw a few go by and they are in fact red. Not sure if they were confusing the times or what.
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 21 2017, 09:55 AM|
welp looks like im gonna have to catch the final red i need later (missed the last two of the red window)
greens here i come!
also yeah 11 am is green time
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 21 2017, 10:00 AM|
Ah, I didn't know of a time shift. Thanks for the heads up.
My green I picked up was from 2am.
|Posted by: ZenithNadir Mar 21 2017, 10:00 AM|
| Seven hours until my first egg hatches... *eyes Greens longingly* at least it isn't the blues!
Gonna add mine to a few more clicksites and give some views since these apparently take a little while to hatch.
|Posted by: 11th Mar 21 2017, 10:03 AM|
Nah, the chart is still right. I'm not sure if people got confused with timezones or something like that, but red was dropping at 10AM, so now should be green.
Though I do wish it was blue. I still need another one. :T
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 21 2017, 10:03 AM|
|I love how it's like a waiting game with these eggs now.|
|Posted by: quinney Mar 21 2017, 10:04 AM|
Good luck with that, I have mine in four, and it's still painfully slow. Even with viewing.
|Posted by: jumpsnake Mar 21 2017, 10:04 AM|
| This is the first release where I've had to turn on add blocker to catch the eggs.
So, TJ, maybe the ads could take up less bandwidth? I usually leave them off for DC, but these eggs are so hard to catch!
|Posted by: Thaliel Mar 21 2017, 10:05 AM|

|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 21 2017, 10:06 AM|
they just go by really fast
if you need help catching just let me know and i'll catch them for you!

|Posted by: quinney Mar 21 2017, 10:08 AM|
|Although the lovely Cellybean is helping me out, catching me an egg to swap for a blue, I'm still trying to catch an egg on my own. It's still not happening.|

|Posted by: Amaterasu-sama Mar 21 2017, 10:11 AM|
I am following wiki time too and didn't have an issue, then again I didn't pick anything around 2AM, maybe it was something temporary?

not so long that i cant manage it c:
|Posted by: ZenithNadir Mar 21 2017, 10:18 AM|
I would feel bad asking you to! You've helped so many players already, but tbh if I don't catch a blue on my own once I have scroll space, I would be grateful for the help.
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 21 2017, 10:20 AM|
of course i'll help out! i remember panicking when the dark luminas basically disappeared from the cave and it was not fun to go through seeing as i was 3-5 days late to that release thanks to being in the hospital
you're added to my list c:
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 21 2017, 10:21 AM|
Hey, do you think you can help me catch another green male crystal? I'm trying to gift a Z Code to another player
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 21 2017, 10:23 AM|
sure! i'll probably send it to you as an egg but if you would like i could precog it and influence it to be the right gender and once it hatches then send it to you? what do you think is best?
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 21 2017, 10:25 AM|
I think if it precogs female, influence it and just send it to me when it hatches
I ran out of male pinks
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 21 2017, 10:26 AM|

|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 21 2017, 10:26 AM|
alrighty then will do! added to my list c:
of course! would you mind waiting until i finish catching all the crystal eggs i need to catch or is it urgent that you get it immediately? i remember you saying there was a trade for it that you wanted to do is the trade still up?
|Posted by: Pryanka Mar 21 2017, 10:29 AM|
|Release day for these is the 19th right? Even though the post was up on the 18th?|
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 21 2017, 10:31 AM|
yeah 19th i believe
since the release started at midnight and last for like 4 hours (i was totally asleep then)
|Posted by: MisaTange Mar 21 2017, 10:35 AM|
| Where's that thread where people thank other people and they get 'awards' for helping other people? (No, not the thank you thread) Celly needs one, lol.
Since I am slightly more on the luckier side, I feel inclined to do a similar thing but I can only reliably get eggs on ungodly hours (12 midnight PST) and also I'm egglocked.

maybe lineage view is okay? i would ask a mod to be completely sure
|Posted by: purplehaze Mar 21 2017, 10:38 AM|
|Yay! I finally got another green on that last drop. I'm seeing quite a few, just missing most. Now I will wait for the blues and try to get one more of those at least. That will give me two of each color for even pairs. My actual scroll goal is 8 CBs of each breed/variant, though, so it will take me a long time to get there.|
|Posted by: pollyfirstfirst Mar 21 2017, 10:38 AM|
|Does lineage view count as a view?|
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 21 2017, 10:39 AM|
it should give you like an unique view and a view? if not people can just click on the egg from lineage view to get to the regular view page. tbh im not really sure how it all completely works
|Posted by: Singalana Mar 21 2017, 10:39 AM|

|Is the viewbombing still happening? Some people need to get over themselves, there is a PERMANENT release for these eggs so it's not like there won't be more to catch Mine are finally starting to hatch, so once they have, I just need one more faint marking to complete my grabs and you can count me on to the list of people willing to help catch for those struggling.|
|Posted by: fuzzbucket Mar 21 2017, 10:40 AM|
No. Only a scroll link.
Hide your stuff, people. Viewbombers seem to be targeting people who are gifting at the moment
Never mind eggs - I just got two really nicely lineaged incugrowable HATCHIES from the AP
|Posted by: pollyfirstfirst Mar 21 2017, 10:41 AM|
|^^ Not even lineage links?,,,|
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 21 2017, 10:42 AM|
It is still happening. They seem to be targeting anyone with eggs or trades remotely related to the release. I just had to cancel a trade with shimmers because of it.
|Posted by: Singalana Mar 21 2017, 10:43 AM|
Just add them to more hatcheries, that's what I do. I normally use one, but if I have stubborn eggs I'll add them to multiple ones. Remember to give views back.
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 21 2017, 10:43 AM|
|i dont understand why people have to viewbomb when myself and im sure other people as well are catching the new release eggs for people who just ask for it|
|Posted by: CharonDusk Mar 21 2017, 10:44 AM|
|Urgh. I find it hard to believe this isn't somehow linked to the other viewbombings and the stuff that happened to PF4 and The Dragoness on their giveaways, especially if it's people offering to give their eggs away.|

|Posted by: Light Concorde Mar 21 2017, 10:49 AM|
There's a fun challenge, and there's "oh my god I'm going to kill myself" challenge. Ultra rares in one biome are sadly the worse option. Stalking that one biome for months and months is never fun, given the RNG-based luck, sometimes slow internet, certain health conditions and other problems rendering some players at major disadvantage. Like mobs in many other games, our dragons need to be balanced somehow. Harder or easier to get, but not to the point of being nearly impossible. Trust me on this, as someone who worked with creature designs in gamedev - not only on DC.
|Posted by: Pluviophillia Mar 21 2017, 10:49 AM|
| Okay I find it very silly from them but still should I fog everything while I'm away? I'm afraid my eggs/hatchlings will be driven to death..
BUT WHY ARE YOU TARGETING MY BLACK HATCHLING IT'S NOT EVEN NEW
|Posted by: Pryanka Mar 21 2017, 10:50 AM|
| Red crystals is the one I've had the most trouble catching
Also now I understand the pain everybody went through with the xenowyrm release. There are just TOO MANY NEW THINGS, and not enough eggspace for them all >.> Slowly but surely hoping to build up a few pairs of each, but it seems like it will take a few weeks.
|Posted by: Marie19R Mar 21 2017, 10:50 AM|
| I fogged mine overnight 'cause I was afraid of them getting sick as they hatched, so they are now *very* incu-hatchable and are in a few ERs. I'm keeping an eye on them though, and I will fog them when I have to leave even if they haven't hatched yet. *pets eggs* Don't want them dying on me.
It looks like crystals are still really hard to get, huh? I traded away two of mine, and am now hunkered down with one of each color, which is enough for me for now. You guys can have the volcano, I'll just wait and hope they breed well.
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 21 2017, 10:52 AM|
Yes. I suggest you fog everything until you are able to watch them or they are ER.

|Posted by: Pluviophillia Mar 21 2017, 11:18 AM|
| I have 2 advices for you cuties~
1). Watch your new release and uncommon/rare eggs and hatchlings because there are some frustrated players and trolls viewbombing
2). Get some eggs from AP too while waiting for your needed colour to come because there are some nice hatchable eggs and it'd be a shame if they'll die
|Posted by: silver_chan Mar 21 2017, 11:18 AM|

I'm in a race against a viewbomber now. Two crystal eggs are close to hatching, ans as soon as they do I'm going to look in the AP.
Viewbombers want them to die though, hoping I don't have to hide them.
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 21 2017, 11:26 AM|
During new releases, I found its better to wait and hide the more popular eggs than to put them automatically in hatcheries.
|Posted by: ainisarie Mar 21 2017, 11:32 AM|
I hide my scroll during releases. If they can't find it they can't viewbomd it. I unhide to put eggs in fansites when it's time and hide again.

Edit: so I just checked and it looks like I have time! I'll be back for the green eggs!
|Posted by: ainisarie Mar 21 2017, 11:38 AM|
This egg has faint markings. Coast and jungle
This rough egg has shimmering veins of crystal running across its surface. Volcano only Once on your scroll the description will change to red blue or green crystals The color that drops changes every hour.
12am cave time-blue
Rinse and repeat
|Posted by: quinney Mar 21 2017, 11:45 AM|
I do the same. Never put eggs into hatchies until they're a day old. Like a lot of folk round here, I'm just fighting back against the viewbombers. And I have my scroll set on on 'No help'

They still show up during 5 minute drops so I doubt they're truly rare, but with three color variants and poor drop rate (I don't know how it was on the first day, since I was sadly a day late, but on the 20th they didn't drop well - still hoping that was a glitch, I'd hate to think it was done deliberately) the demand for them is huge and they're getting snatched very quickly. I think once the new release fever fades they'll become more available. Good luck hunting!
I'm also saddened to see awesome people who gift eggs getting viewbombed, people really need to calm down, they're just cute pixel dragons after all. No need to ruin anyone's day over that.

|Posted by: Amaterasu-sama Mar 21 2017, 12:34 PM|
They were dropping okay, I think it's the fact that most people came to similar conclusion that crystal ones will probably be uncommons so went to nab that first and didn't grab or grabbed less of the fade one. They are definitely not dropping like rares.
|Posted by: ZenithNadir Mar 21 2017, 12:36 PM|
|I didn't realize that the crystal eggs only dropped in the Volcano so I saw the Fades first and loaded up on them. I have four Fade eggs and am reluctant to ditch any in order to catch more Crystals since the drop rates for them are so low.|

Wow, that's awful o.o I'm having pretty rotten luck atm but honestly I'm just happy for everyone who has a faster computer.
It's just a waste of eggs if you kill other peoples', it just makes them rarer and fills the biomes with more people trying to get eggs because the ones they got before are dead. It defeats the object. Why don't you try hiding them?

|Can someone breed a randomly lineaged new Chrystal dragon? Lineage doesn't matter, a friend just wants the sprite. My breedings have already been promised to another friend who had trouble catching. Both couldn't care less about being caveborn. PM me.|

|Thank you to the someone who just gifted me a blue egg. . Also if Cellybean sees this I got a blue from an awesome person.|
|Posted by: SilverQuetzal Mar 21 2017, 12:53 PM|
| Still need blue and red. =(
But got the green one gifted.
I can not say Thank you enough.
sorry for my English...
|Posted by: Mirume Mar 21 2017, 12:54 PM|
| I got two of those BLUE eggs and no others so far. Are the reds and green ones also only to be caught in the Volcano biomie???
I am bad at hunting new eggs. Slow web. So I am very curious. Thank you,
|Posted by: ewi122 Mar 21 2017, 12:56 PM|
^They have to grow up first, they are barely hatching right now
I am really glad that I was able to catch my batch during the release day, now it seems almost impossible!
|Posted by: fuzzbucket Mar 21 2017, 12:57 PM|
People are doing. But we shouldn't HAVE to
|Posted by: Duysterwald Mar 21 2017, 01:01 PM|
Hmm, it sounds like you mean the ARK (Acts of Random Kindness) thread, which is located right here:
Unfortunately, the thread is closed, indicating that the ARK project came to an end some time ago. I have no idea why, but I think it's a right shame.
|Posted by: Alectrona Mar 21 2017, 01:02 PM|
Yes, the red and green crystals are also dropping in the Volcano, but the colour depends on the time. Currently, green ones are dropping. The full list of when each colour drops is on the http://dragcave.wikia.com/wiki/Currently_Being_Released.
|Posted by: Wookieinmashoo Mar 21 2017, 01:03 PM|
|I think I'm just not going to bother with new releases anymore. Just going to wait until they become common and no one wants them|
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 21 2017, 01:06 PM|
|I'm done hunting for now. Even the faint eggs are hard to catch.|
|Posted by: Mirume Mar 21 2017, 01:07 PM|
Thank you very much for clearing that one for me. Thank you very much.
|Posted by: prismatika Mar 21 2017, 01:08 PM|
|Ugh. I just need one more green to complete my goal for these and I can't get anywhere near catching one. It's becoming very frustrating.|

|I mmissed the realse? why was it release so early in the month. =[|
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 21 2017, 01:12 PM|
|I'm wondering if this is a glitch with the eggs being hard to grab. I'm hoping for TJ comes on and fixes it or explain as to why this is happening|
|Posted by: fuzzbucket Mar 21 2017, 01:21 PM|
Releases aren't scheduled. You just have to keep an eye open.
|Posted by: purplehaze Mar 21 2017, 01:25 PM|
Well, they are hidden now but they got almost 300 views in less than 2 hours when I had not posted them anywhere. I hope they will survive. It makes it hard to hatch eggs if you have to keep them hidden all the time!
|Posted by: Erinthebookworm Mar 21 2017, 01:33 PM|
|Wow, I've been trying for 30 minutes and I have only seen one vein in the cave. o.o Wow, these go fast. Maybe I should wait a few days for it to calm down. I'll still attempt though, but I have pretty bad reflexes. Well, at least I got one green.|
|Posted by: PieMaster Mar 21 2017, 01:50 PM|
|To everybody worried about these being rares, remember that rarity is artificially augmented by popularity. Assuming the three Volcano colorations share a ratio (based on the fact that only the blue egg is in the release art, and the colors' rotation), that means that, in grabbing six times as many of them as we are the other breed, we're making them seem rarer than they are. I'm sure they'll bounce back eventually, even if it takes them some time to level out.|
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Mar 21 2017, 01:57 PM|
Rares drop in every biome. Since these are only in the volcano, they shouldn't be anything rarer than uncommon. ;3
I am soulless, though. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
And very much enjoying my new title: PIRATE VAMPIRE DC SITH LORD.
Unfortunately, ARK hasn't been able to keep active users. If some people are interested in getting it back up and running, please contact _Z_. I was just discussing with the other mods how much I'd like to see this up and running again. =)
Now that I'm unlocked, I can try for a green. I'm guessing try is going to be the operative word here, though. xP
|Posted by: Asketil Mar 21 2017, 01:58 PM|
| Is there hope for the hour drop? I got a pair of faints pretty easily but the other ones I have not caught one of myself o.o
Yah nope saw one egg.
|Posted by: Spootedleaf Mar 21 2017, 02:02 PM|
| Can Anyone tell me what time the blue Crystal eggs show up at? I haven't seen a single one yet.
Another question, do the eggs show up at certain times?
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Mar 21 2017, 02:06 PM|
They rotate each hour: blue -> red -> green (starting at 12am ET/cave time).
There's a post with times here: https://forums.dragcave.net/index.php?showtopic=178509&st=440entry9434646 ^^

|It's a bit like Xenowyrms... intended uncommons becoming user-driven rares. With a few differences - less alts, and people having slots but almost no eggs in the biome to compete for... feels like their intended rarity is rarer than Xenos...|
|Posted by: dragonpuck Mar 21 2017, 02:16 PM|
| These are going to be like coppers
spent the last hour looking for a green vein- saw 2 at the the hour and the NOT EVEN ONE for the rest of the hour
took me a whole year the get a cb pair of each copper - looks like this will be similar *sighs*
|Posted by: andromedae Mar 21 2017, 02:18 PM|
| Is the color blue dropping now?
Just saw a blue, so to answer my own question, blue is dropping now
|Posted by: blockEdragon Mar 21 2017, 02:19 PM|
Yea, but at this point we need ANY true fruit to rival the two kinds of true fruit available,
But like I said, we need more fruit in general, I don't even care if it's biome specific, if anything that helps because it makes them a tiny bit rarer,
but biome specific rares aren't a bad thing, people will calm down in time, and the volcano is almost always under hunted so it's getting some much needed attention
"something something, confession about being a vampire sith pirate lord, rares drop in every biome"
Also, if more rares are added, then it it almost certain that not all of them will be identical to silvers and golds, some will probably only drop in one or two biomes, others might drop in all of them and then some, gotta diversify the rares man!
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Mar 21 2017, 02:21 PM|
When biomes were introduced, it was specifically decided that rares would drop in all biomes. TJ could have changed his mind, but I doubt it. It makes more sense to spread rares out. ;3
Oops, I grabbed an olive instead of a walnut. Only one more space to try for a walnut and then I'm locked for a while again.
|Posted by: oddsoxdi Mar 21 2017, 02:23 PM|
|Well swell, missed the Release. DID manage to get 2 each from Coast and Jungle, but those from Volcano are impossible to grab right now.|
|Posted by: blockEdragon Mar 21 2017, 02:42 PM|
What about dinos?
And trios possibly (though I see them enough that I think they are just uncommons)
I mean more multi biome rares are fine but a few biome exclusive rares would be fine to, what's the big deal with having to hunt in certain areas?
And if more get added then it will even out and everyone will have to hunt in specific biomes.
any rare is needed, even if it's just a joke breed's level of rare, it still would help, but we need things to rival the two options,
I don't even care if it's just shiny,
I don't even care if has the most annoyingly over decorated egg description ever
this metallic egg is very shiny and reflective and gives off a lovely iridescence that exudes a powerful magical aura in the starlight and being near it makes you feel good
(Don't make this egg description, I have a very specific lack of skills, and I will come for you, and I will find your thread, and I will criticize it!)
I don't care which biomes it drops in
I don't care if its the most snowflakey dragon even conceived, with Mary and Garry using it at a battle steed at all times
I don't care how much everyone whines about new rares
I don't even care if its stealth added without a flood or announcement
(that would actually be kinda hilarious! best and most productive april fools joke possible, now gold rare, no flood! HA how do you like them fruits?!)
I don't care about anything I normally care about if it means getting more rares!
(yea, i'm passionate about this subject)

| Damn... I've been here for 8 years, being there for every release, looking at the front page once per day....
AND IT LOOKS LIKE I DIDN'T DO THAT IN THE LAST TWO DAYS.
I missed the release. Damn. :I
|Posted by: andromedae Mar 21 2017, 02:45 PM|
| Finally grabbed the last blue I needed! I thought I wouldn't be able to, due to internet connectivity issues I'm facing in life, but I'm here at a friend's house and had just enough luck to complete pairs of each color
Best of luck to everyone in their hunting!
|Posted by: Sinion Kabe Mar 21 2017, 02:45 PM|
| These Volcano eggs are becoming harder to grab. Only seems to be one egg dropping at the five minute windows. As some of you have already said, I have a feeling this breed is going to be rare.
I saw somebody claim that they saw one of the Volcano breeds dropping in Alpine. Does anybody know if that is true? Or was that just a bit of fake news? Lol!
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 21 2017, 02:46 PM|
ello i am back
glad to see you got one!
my touchscreen is finally working so now i can hunt seriously
|Posted by: MisaTange Mar 21 2017, 02:47 PM|

also on a side-note, i saw a crystal! IT'S A CHRISTMAS MIRACLE
|Posted by: blockEdragon Mar 21 2017, 02:48 PM|
they never drop and aren't very popular (I once sw one sit for five minutes!) i thought they were joke-breed rare!
|Posted by: ainisarie Mar 21 2017, 02:49 PM|
Hey, if you need fruit and a challenge just put on a mask and poke apple seed sized holes over each eye. You can struggle and other people can hunt normally.
|Posted by: Loki.Dottir Mar 21 2017, 02:50 PM|
|Been trying, trying, trying. Looking like I'm not going to get a single vein/crystal egg at all. I'll try a little more but then I'm considering giving up and getting another faint or two if I can even find that. As I said before, I'm not opposed to new rares. But I hope these aren't, because of the three varieties, and dropping in only one biome... And to quote myself, it's not that I dislike a challenge. (Or that I don't want the rares to diversify. I sorta don't feel a lack in variety myself, but I'm fine with getting more.) It's just that... This hunting can grow to be more bothersome than fun, especially if someone has a busy life or lack of focus, a slow computer or internet, or bad reflexes. A rare with multiple varieties, alright. a rare in only one biome that doesn't have multiple varieties, alright. But, just in my humble opinion, I feel like one rare having multiple varieties AND only appearing in one biome is a little bit overboard. And I hope there aren't too many with multiple varieties. I'd like to catch up a little on my progress of collecting before a great many new rares show up.|

|Beautiful eggs and hatchlings and I can't wait to see the adults! The ones we're calling "crystal" eggs seem really frustrating to grab at this point (I feel lucky I already got most of what I want when more were dropping!) but I can I just say, despite frustrations people are having catching eggs, this thread has been awesome? Civilized discussion for the most part and some users showing real kindness in helping others, asking for nothing in return.

|I want to say that this has to be a glitch on the cave system. New eggs dropping for only a day before old eggs mixing in? I don't recall the Aeon Wyverns being this frustrating. There's too much demand for these eggs and not enough to go around.|
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 21 2017, 03:21 PM|
i read earlier in the thread like at the beginning that the drop lasted for only 4 hours
weee got another red!
could someone pm EmmaD333 for me and ask her to send me a dummy egg so i can give her the red crystal thats reserved for her? my pm box is basically full or else i wouldnt ask this
|Posted by: silver_chan Mar 21 2017, 03:24 PM|
| I suspect that once these guys stop dropping we're not going to see them for a while. That doesn't mean they're going to be rare! The same thing happened after the Magelight pygmy drop (along with the other dragons they dropped with, but I don't have time to look them up as I'm flying out the door). They're common now, but if I recall correctly, after they stopped flooding they vanished for something like a week or two.
I'm just saying we should be prepared for these guys to do the same. If TJ make their drop last artificially longer, like he did for that drop, they'll need time to let the ratios balance out naturally.
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 21 2017, 03:27 PM|
why did the magelights disappear for a week if they're common? was it because everyone was grabbing them?

-if DC hour is a multiple of 3, it's blue
-if the hour is just after a multiple of 3, it's red
-if the hour's just before a multiple of 3, it's green
...but that's maybe a little convoluted

| Another misclick... *sigh*
And still 100 people in the biome!
I don't think I've seen that many people in a biome, two days after an initial drop for a *long* time!
I do hope that these won't be rare.
Managed three on Sunday, but that was it since then.
And I really don't have the time to hunt rares. If I have more than half an hour to spend on DC, it's a lot...
And I haven't seen a Silver, much less a Gold, in maybe over a year or so... Let's not add another rare to that, please.
Hopefully, the run on these will die down soon, then I can pick up a mate for my blue, and two greens, just to gladden my completist heart...
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 21 2017, 04:13 PM|
| there was a gold actually in the volcano this morning! (i missed it :c)
i dont think these guys will be as bad as golds and silvers since i still see them mostly in the shuffles
|Posted by: andromedae Mar 21 2017, 04:17 PM|
|Personally, I don't think these guys will be rare, it's just that they're incredibly in demand due to them being found within a single biome with many variations. Thus, they're harder to catch. Once all the release rage dies down, I'm expecting an uncommon base rarity. I see them quite a bit in the 5 minute shuffles, thing is, they're getting snatched up at lightning speed.|
|Posted by: UkyoKuonji2004 Mar 21 2017, 04:22 PM|
|Geez, there was a paper dragon in that last drop. Soon going to give up at this rate, I have IRL stuff to do...|
|Posted by: MisaTange Mar 21 2017, 04:23 PM|
|I think it's too early to say what rarity they are as everyone is barely having their second clutch (if they decide to grab more than their previous clutch, assuming they caught it on the exact date of release). Hopefully they'll be, at most, as rare as xenowyrms -- i.e. although all of them are considered uncommon (barely rare?), some variants of xenos are more desirable than others. Sure seemed like that, too, at first, lol.|

|It's a little frutrating to see that my clicks aren't fast enough. Normaly I am a good catcher during releaces but this is to high for me. Just catched three reds wile all three slots refreshed, trated one for a green but no blue at once. And still after 2 days over hundred users in the volcano. I hoped some eggs will end abandoned but... well... nothing|

|Okay. Three hours of non-stop refreshing is starting to get to me. And I have nothing to show for it but two eggs I misclicked and tried to remove by biting them, causing them BOTH to die. I think I'm done trying for a while. I don't know why these new ones can't be put in the front of the line or even put in every biome temporarily.|
|Posted by: Shokomon Mar 21 2017, 04:45 PM|
| 18 hours until TJ's hatchies grow.
And I think I've reached a point that I just don't care anymore.
I've got one, so let's hope I can get all 3 colors through breeding.
I doubt I'm getting anymore now.
|Posted by: TerraAnne Mar 21 2017, 04:48 PM|
Yeah I saw that gold earlier too and didn't get it. I was surprised to see one of them crop up. How often are they seen in the biomes normally?
|Posted by: oddsoxdi Mar 21 2017, 04:49 PM|
When the Legendary Trio dropped it was like this, then I didn't see any for several months.
|Posted by: Sirithiliel Mar 21 2017, 04:51 PM|
| i've never seen a Xenowyrm since their release lol =P
Still trying to get one green to lock me out, then i'll have 2 blues, 2 reds, and 1 green. Keep being too slow though
|Posted by: rampaging wyvern Mar 21 2017, 04:56 PM|
|RIP me for just grabbing a bunch of blues and none of the other colours while I still could.|

|Anybody else thinking of Flame Aura?|
|Posted by: Erinthebookworm Mar 21 2017, 04:58 PM|
|Well, I'm just about to give it up for now. All I need to complete my pairs is one green, but at this rate, I'll be here all night. Oh well, I'm happy with what I've got either way. Good luck to everyone else still hunting, I hope you get the eggs your looking for!|
|Posted by: StormBirdRising Mar 21 2017, 04:59 PM|
I have never even seen one in the biomes.
|Posted by: Draconis92 Mar 21 2017, 05:03 PM|
Saw a paper in volcano two hours ago and thought it was a viene because the text was so long. But I was too slow.
|Posted by: ZenithNadir Mar 21 2017, 05:03 PM|
|One of my eggs finally has a chance to hatch! I don't even care what color is dropping now; if I get a color I already have, I can try to trade it for the others... Still looking out for my blues. :3|
|Posted by: StormBirdRising Mar 21 2017, 05:08 PM|
I am leaning towards giving up for the night and trying again tomorrow. In almost 2 hours I have seen only 1 faint egg and 1 crystal egg, and missed both of them.
Good Luck hunting everyone.
|Posted by: angelicdragonpuppy Mar 21 2017, 05:23 PM|
Lots of people are looking for color swaps in trades
|Posted by: UkyoKuonji2004 Mar 21 2017, 05:24 PM|
|I managed to get one faint egg, but I haven't seen another one since. And I haven't got even one Crystal egg despite my trying. I'm on call tonight at work so I can't just do this all night, so now I have to give in...If anyone has a spare that they would like to donate I would be grateful, as it seems that's the only way I'm going to get one of them.|
|Posted by: dragongirl02 Mar 21 2017, 05:33 PM|
| Been doing this since yesterday and have yet to catch one on my own. Starting to think there going to be just as hard as the Lunar and Xenowyrm neither of those have a CB for Male and female for all type. Those types give me a headache trying to find them and that what the crystal are doing release. I have much better luck when I do the catches near the start of the time. Going to try one more time then go make some tea for, myself.
|Posted by: dragonwinxzodiac Mar 21 2017, 05:40 PM|
| Welp just now saw the release announcement, and judging by the last few pages of comments I'll not be getting any CBs for a few weeks at least, or until I can snag something to trade for one
Edit: gotta say, love how the vein eggs look like boulder opal xux
|Posted by: TheCompleteAnimorph Mar 21 2017, 05:53 PM|
I actually caught a Xenowym while checking in on the Volcano today.
|Posted by: Yunako Mar 21 2017, 06:05 PM|
|Managed to catch one of each on release day, except 2 silvery blue ones and 2 rough blue ones. Those all hatched and I finally got me a red and a green, as well as more silvery ones. Those are really pretty and the hatchies are simply adorable.|
|Posted by: kjym16 Mar 21 2017, 06:07 PM|
|I misclicked other egg. But I don't use bite because I don't want to leave dead egg shell on my scroll.|
|Posted by: Kovia Mar 21 2017, 06:17 PM|
| Did the crystal eggs stop dropping? I haven't seen any yet this hour.
I only got one, but at least I got one. Maybe I can breed it for the other colours.
|Posted by: 4320pour Mar 21 2017, 06:22 PM|
I think they did, but im not 100% sure because its only been 20 mins since the last one i saw.
|Posted by: blockEdragon Mar 21 2017, 06:28 PM|
No they just aren't easy to get, it's a permanent release.
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 21 2017, 06:32 PM|
Hey finally woke up.
So about the bluminae.. I could wait as much as possible The trade is maybe still up.
|Posted by: CowlRaven Mar 21 2017, 06:35 PM|
| ugh I worked all day when these came out and even though I managed to get a couple last night I don't have any blue crystals
does anyone have that post that lists the times the eggs rotate in the cave?
|Posted by: wbmorgan Mar 21 2017, 06:39 PM|
Am/Pm Cave Time

Check your PMs
|Posted by: Spootedleaf Mar 21 2017, 06:44 PM|
| Crystal eggs aren't showing up so far for me... I haven't seen or gotten one at all
And apparently flamingo dragon eggs are showing up at the volcano biome too
(Probably gone by now)
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 21 2017, 06:47 PM|
Well look at the amount of people sitting in volcano spooted.
If there is one it would get grabbed instantly.
|Posted by: Laura-Borealis Mar 21 2017, 06:52 PM|
Those would be Pink Dragons. Flamingos drop in Coast and Jungle. They share a breed description, but Pinks drop everywhere.
|Posted by: Twilight_Moon_Racer Mar 21 2017, 06:54 PM|
|I hope I get lucky soon because so far I haven't seen a single new egg yet and they look so awesome to|
|Posted by: SerebiiFrost Mar 21 2017, 06:57 PM|
|Nooooo!!! I finally get a color I don't have on my slow, laggy, old, computer, and someone click-bombs it. Now it's dead. whyyyyy|
|Posted by: Laura-Borealis Mar 21 2017, 06:57 PM|
|I'm seeing low-time Bluminas in the AP|
|Posted by: Sirithiliel Mar 21 2017, 07:01 PM|
|Ugh i give up on trying to get a green, i'll just have to hope Cellybean actually manages to get me one >.<|
|Posted by: TerraAnne Mar 21 2017, 07:07 PM|
| just snagged this low time CB blue crystal in the abandoned egg area! https://dragcave.net/view/5p651
crystals are finally showing up in the other area folks!
View link changed to /lineage/, please do not post view links to growing dragons.~
|Posted by: Spootedleaf Mar 21 2017, 07:10 PM|
| I got a Crystal egg in the abandoned area
That means I have both of the eggs in the update, But not all the colors
|Posted by: ZenithNadir Mar 21 2017, 07:16 PM|
|Didn't see a single egg at the 15-minute drop. Although with so many people in the Volcano it's possible that they all just got snagged...|
|Posted by: KuroYukia Mar 21 2017, 07:24 PM|
|I'm having to trade for some... I had walking pnumonia for the past two weeks and this weekend I slept >.< They look amazing and totally LOVE the timing of every hour its a different coloring|
|Posted by: SerebiiFrost Mar 21 2017, 07:31 PM|
|I have a green egg that I can trade for a red or blue one! PM me if you need it.|
|Posted by: ainisarie Mar 21 2017, 08:03 PM|
|These little suckers seem to be kind of needy as far as views to hatch.|
|Posted by: Lagie Mar 21 2017, 08:06 PM|
| Are there any other Babylon 5 fans out there in DC Forum world who find it amusing that the green eggs turn purple as they hatch?
(The other two combos happen to be the two party colours in our upcoming election. Not quite so amusing. blue/yellow, red/blue)
It's interesting looking at the 'old' dragon hatchies in the hatcheries. Since there are so many of the new ones, the old ones really stand out.
|Posted by: TigersLover Mar 21 2017, 08:08 PM|
|Got the green and red ones, 2 of each, but I can't get a blue one for the life of me Been trying at every blue hour but it's nigh impossible with so many people searching for them... I really hope I can get one later, but if they keep dissappearing so fast and so few appear at even the hourly drop....|
|Posted by: kjym16 Mar 21 2017, 08:09 PM|
|Ah... Old eggs keep blocking biome....|
|Posted by: kittyrules2003 Mar 21 2017, 08:13 PM|
| Ah, only 15 hours until they grow into adults! I'm so hyped!
Edit: Just saw a red crystal in the AP. For those who are looking, some may end up there.

No luck with the others.

|Finally, a pair of reds! Now to find a pair of greens.|
|Posted by: Syiren Mar 21 2017, 09:10 PM|
I dropped an extra red one when i caught 3, so you never know. I caught it during the first red drop if memory serves me right. I doubt it was my egg you caught, but I'm sure it'll go to someone who needs it.
|Posted by: MisaTange Mar 21 2017, 09:11 PM|
|7 hours later, STILL 110+ people. MAN|
|Posted by: ainisarie Mar 21 2017, 09:12 PM|
|I do think new releases should have a longer flood. If you not in the right time zone, you are screwed. And three colors all in same biome? Really needed a longer flood|
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 21 2017, 09:13 PM|
I think someone mentioned that there was a glitch in the system, not sure, let me go find it
|Posted by: Shokomon Mar 21 2017, 09:20 PM|
It was a red crystal, so it could have been you!
Thank you for sharing the love though!
No doubt, you helped out someone!
|Posted by: Nectaris Mar 21 2017, 09:24 PM|
|Managed to get two new reds right now! I have been hunting all evening, and naturally I get two in the same hour. I will trade the second red after the cooldown ends.|
|Posted by: RagaDal Mar 21 2017, 09:27 PM|
LOL Let's hope the dragons are prettier than Drazi at any rate! (Even the one that was played by my friend in "The Ragged Edge" -- he's the one in the shuttle who throws up in to the sick bag!)
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 21 2017, 09:40 PM|
| Going On:
With these new eggs:
2. After about ten hours or so the old eggs started to mix in with the new ones, causing people to crowd the volcano biome to the point where the coloured crystals are high in demand
3. The Faint Eggs, though, not as popular, have vanished as well in their respective biomes.
4. People are being view bombed because people who can't nab the eggs are getting upset and frustrated
5. CellyBean and I are trying our best to gift to people the best we can
6. TJ has yet to say anything about what exactly is going on and I did look back to see people demanding answers from him (I'm not going to beg for an answer, but wait patiently)
Okay, if I missed anything, I'm terribly sorry, but this seems to be the situation in a nutshell.
|Posted by: meirelle Mar 21 2017, 09:51 PM|
|Oh, wow, I nabbed my eggs relatively early, so I didn't know all this stuff was going on.|
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 21 2017, 09:52 PM|
Yeah, I'm not seeing any more new eggs drop due to the common eggs being in the way :/
|Posted by: Nectaris Mar 21 2017, 09:54 PM|
They do drop, but they disappear in a blink(at least the crystals do), and I usually only see one a drop. ONCE I managed to see two at a time.
|Posted by: SilverQuetzal Mar 21 2017, 09:57 PM|
|Thank you for the help @CellyBean. ~Personal PM contact removed~ Please take it to PM, IRC, skype, etc. - anywhere you guys can talk in private. You can notify a user that their PM box is full in the Missed Connections thread in Site Discussion.|
|Posted by: Newmani Mar 21 2017, 09:57 PM|
You're getting better results than I am at least. They disappear for me so fast I can't even tell they were there to begin with!
I just went ahead and gave up and decided to hunt something else. It takes so long for the page to refresh once the 5 minute mark hits it's pretty much unusable.
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 21 2017, 10:00 PM|
I don't really think this is a reason to consider it a glitch? I made sure I was prepared each weekend with space for a possible release--just in case. TJ doesn't announce releases anymore and http://dragcave.wikia.com/wiki/Dragon_Release_Timeline.
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 21 2017, 10:07 PM|
Well, I went back through the posts and a lot of people thought the release was going to be next week. I, myself, was expecting the release to be next week as well :/
|Posted by: RagaDal Mar 21 2017, 10:08 PM|
|I've missed a few faint markings ones and caught ONE a few hours ago, but I haven't seen any crystal ones at all today.|
|Posted by: RagaDal Mar 21 2017, 10:09 PM|
I wasn't expecting it next weekend either -- I checked last week, and then this week in anticipation of it esp since the only new eggs we got in February were the Valentines. Also Monday was Vernal Equinox so a Spring-related release made sense.
|Posted by: ainisarie Mar 21 2017, 10:13 PM|
Unfortunately majority thinking something does not = making it happen. I actually did think it would be this weekend. I was ready.
|Posted by: pixiezbite Mar 21 2017, 10:15 PM|
| Thing is, TJ has stopped long ago announcing when drops are...if he decided to have a release last weekend-his choice...same thing with if he chose to have the drop/flood last 10 hours...his choice...I think we heed to remember this is TJ's game-he is being pretty awesome to keep it a free game, and to keep giving us free stuff in the forum of new eggs every month, and going though the huge effort to give us even more awesome holiday releases and events 3 times a year, and a event for DC b-day...
I have also been prepared each weekend for a release-just in case...
Obviously TJ hasn't rushed in here after the normal eggs started dropping after 10 hours, so guessing its not a "glitch"...
|Posted by: SilverQuetzal Mar 21 2017, 10:34 PM|
|I dont realy care when releases are exact. I am checking once a week and if there was a release I was able to get the eggs even when it was 3 days bevore but this time it seems impossible without help...|
|Posted by: veci037 Mar 21 2017, 10:34 PM|
| still can't get one in Volcano... QVQ
it's so hard~hope it will be more easy after everybody got it...
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 21 2017, 10:37 PM|
I slept through the first hour even with a prepared scroll. I just chalk these babies up to being user-driven rares for the time being. I've seen plenty rolling through the AP and their scarcity is not unlike blunas or trios or xenos when those first came out.
|Posted by: acm1923 Mar 21 2017, 10:43 PM|
|Boy these eggs fly by fast I was lucky enough to grab a couple greens on the five minute drops though. I am very excited to see these adults those bright colors have lots of potential.|
|Posted by: Sunfeathers Mar 21 2017, 10:44 PM|
|I'm very excited to see JereduLevenin's name in this release! They were the spriter for my beloved Hellfires but I thought they had left the forum, so I wasn't expecting any more of their work to come into the cave. It's too bad the the crystals seem to be at least uncommon so it'll be hard to collect as many as I bet I'll want.|
|Posted by: ylangylang Mar 21 2017, 10:53 PM|
|well, I need 1 faint egg, 1 green egg, 2 blue eggs, and 3 more red eggs to fulfil my goal. Guess I'll have to trade for some of them.|
|Posted by: Syiren Mar 21 2017, 10:54 PM|
That'd be awesome if it turned out 2 be, I'm always happy to give back after so many have been so kind to me over the years. I just wish i had the egg space and internet speed to catch more for others like amazing people like CellyBean and Raptor of Dragons are doing.
Seriously, kudos to you guys. You're the real heroes of this thread.
|Posted by: Odeen Mar 21 2017, 10:55 PM|
|I've seen a few scary releases (like the 7th birthday bash where things like coppers dropped well for only a day after people had already filled up on other eggs). This release seems completely within ordinary levels of user-manufactured rarity at this point. I would not start drumming up conspiracy theories about there being something wrong with the release just yet.|
|Posted by: Daypaw Mar 21 2017, 10:57 PM|
|Managed to catch a CB gold tonight, but can't catch any more crystals Ah well, c'est la vie. I've finally picked up some of the Faint Marking eggs that I was lacking on release day, and I've got a breeding pair for each color of crystals- think I'll just lock myself with older eggs once the few ERs I have finish hatching.|
|Posted by: ZenithNadir Mar 21 2017, 11:16 PM|
|Dang - just missed one in the fifteen minute drop! I have two red and two green but no blue... hoping to get some eggs to trade.|
|Posted by: Nightwalkerkey Mar 21 2017, 11:19 PM|
|Well, I've got a ways to go in terms of collecting these guys. I can't wait to see the adults tomorrow morning though!!|
|Posted by: Thaliel Mar 21 2017, 11:34 PM|
|hope they'll still drop later, I need to sleep|
|Posted by: ZenithNadir Mar 21 2017, 11:38 PM|
|Still no more crystal eggs, but I did catch a Gemshard instead! For once I'm happy with a misclick I doubt anyone wants to swap it out for a new-release egg, but I'd be happy to trade it away once it's off cooldown.|
|Posted by: Marie19R Mar 21 2017, 11:42 PM|
|I've found a few nice catches (non-new-release) in the AP, all nearly hatchable. I gave up on getting more crystals long ago, I'm just hoping they breed alright. But I'm having fun with the AP.|
|Posted by: SullenCat Mar 21 2017, 11:45 PM|
|I don't believe there's any glitch with this release. What did you expect with 3 variants in the same biome? 70+ users competing for the same eggs, three days after they were released. All that seems quite normal. I don't even believe they will be that uncommon. If I had one dollar for every post I read by people fearing/complaining rarity of new releases, since I joined DC, I would be thinking of very early retirement. Just relax.|
|Posted by: Alrexwolf Mar 21 2017, 11:47 PM|
| This is so frustrating. Not only are there no crystals in the volcano (been seeing 1 egg every 5 minutes, if that)... now there's not any eggs. People are just taking everything.
Would it not have made more sense to at least have the eggs in two different biomes? Something, anything.
I've even got timers going by the second so I know exactly when each 5 minutes will happen down to the second. It's just not possible.
I only managed to get eggs the first day because there were so many.
I feel very sorry for anyone who missed the first day because it's just not going to happen. Everyone is enamored with these guys, I can't see demand dying down anytime soon. And some people are suggesting they might turn out to be rare? Even uncommon would just... be disappointing.
I wish everyone else luck in hunting. At least I managed to get a blue, which is my favorite of the colors, and a pair of greens. I managed to get one with a nice url (0men) so I'm happy on that front, at least!
|Posted by: Fictionsoul Mar 22 2017, 12:02 AM|
|Logged in for the first time in a while tonight, and saw there was a new release, learned it was Volcano exclusive, and I've tried for the past 20 minutes to snag one of these new crystal eggs but no luck. I did manage to grab that Copper at 1:00 tho c:|

|Posted by: Aleoleo Mar 22 2017, 01:22 AM|
| Have the faint eggs disapeared as well?
When I went to bed they were fairly easy to catch, and now I see people offering even more for one of these than for the Volcano ones?!
|Posted by: blockEdragon Mar 22 2017, 01:28 AM|
| Managed to grab three more over the past few hours, one of each, it wasn't easy but it was challenging, let's hope they stay that way!
And all of this "they aren't dropping anymore" is nonsense, don't believe a word of it!

I do not see any at the moment. LOL
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Mar 22 2017, 01:32 AM|
All I see in the trading threads are crystal veins. o.o I haven't been on or looking, though, so I don't know how often they're dropping. xP
|Posted by: Cecona Mar 22 2017, 01:38 AM|
|I've seen a few cystal veins in the past few hours but have not been able to catch them. at this point I'm hoping that the breeding is the same as the drops and I just have to breed them at a certain hour to get a certain color. I'm hoping to get two reds and another blue... if I wasn't view bombed the first night I wouldn't have to still be searching >.<|
|Posted by: Amaterasu-sama Mar 22 2017, 01:39 AM|
I haven't seen any today. My guess is most people didn't pick them in first lot and are now gunning for them instead in second lot to make up for their minimum scroll goals.
|Posted by: Aleoleo Mar 22 2017, 01:53 AM|
It was in EATW's trade market, and now the offers are gone (accepted, or maybe deleted).
That makes sense. I'm just surprised, since the Coast is mostly empty I thought we'd see them more.
...now watch them become true rares while the crystal veins become uber common....... oh the drama }:->

Oooh, okay. Yeah, I don't use that site. ^^
This is something to keep an eye on, though! There was https://forums.dragcave.net/index.php?showtopic=168094&st=680entry8760645 due to an error. As long as they're still appearing, I think it's okay.

|Posted by: TigersLover Mar 22 2017, 02:45 AM|
|Are they still dropping? Haven't seen any in the past few 5 minutes drops|
|Posted by: Bloodreign Mar 22 2017, 02:50 AM|
| Throwing my two cents in here:
If this release (or any release for past few years) is meant to be common to uncommon, then why make it so dang impossible for people to grab? What is the fun and enjoyment of sitting refreshing like mad every five minutes for hours at a time? That's not fun to me, and I know it sure isn't fun to a lot of people. I don't see any real reason not to have drops last longer or make them similar to how Halloween eggs drop. There for one day and then back to regular schedules the next. That arrangement hurts no one.
Yes, this is a free game. I love free games! And I appreciate that this game is here, but something has to change a little bit here. I would gladly give/pay money to play this game if it was different as I mentioned above.
Thirdly, thanks to the lovely artists of these eggs. Neither of which are really my style, but I appreciate the effort and hard work the spriters did on these guys.
|Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Mar 22 2017, 02:57 AM|

|Posted by: Amaterasu-sama Mar 22 2017, 03:37 AM|
Okay with regards to this, I am still looking at coast/forest and haven't seen ~any~ blue eggs at all. Can someone confirm if you have caught any bluminae/faint eggs recently and in which hour did you do it?
|Posted by: Jazeki Mar 22 2017, 03:41 AM|
My youngest Bluminae is from yesterday at 5:25 pm cave time.
|Posted by: SilverQuetzal Mar 22 2017, 03:43 AM|
No. Did not see or caught one at all since yesterday.

Yup I have been camping in the cave today for past 6 hours today and it is very possible I simply missed the egg as they go too fast. The crystal is dropping ~very less~ but still dropping. I haven't seen a single bluminae though.
|Posted by: UkyoKuonji2004 Mar 22 2017, 04:25 AM|
| I haven't seen a crystal one all night, and now I have to go to work. It's unfair to expect people to be able to get these things, especially if they have crappy internet.
I have very little to offer due to the nature of living in a place where crappy internet is the only internet I have, but if anyone wants to trade something I have for one, please let me know. Otherwise I have no chance in getting any crystals. I luckily got ONE of the faint ones...

I just caught one in the Coast pretty easy.
|Posted by: SkyWolf25 Mar 22 2017, 04:40 AM|
| I got a Bluminae about an hour ago, at my second try. Two popped up at once. '0'
Adults soon! Yes!
|Posted by: Iside Mar 22 2017, 05:01 AM|
| These new dragons look like they will be beautiful adults, so it's really a pity it's so difficult to get them.
I have been stalking the cave for almost an hour this morning and I wasn't even able to see one (while a saw - and missed - a copper and a silver instead). It's not funny to just keep refreshing and refreshing, really hope they will be dropping better again next days. For now, I stop since staying here is useless
|Posted by: Rainbowlight Mar 22 2017, 05:06 AM|
|Mine hatched! (only the bluminae and the blue and red)|
|Posted by: Shokomon Mar 22 2017, 05:17 AM|
| As for the reason why these eggs are so hard to get, let me just quote Process:
People like shiny things, so people pick up shiny things.
It's just like with Xenowyrms and Coopers when they first released. People like pretty-pretty, shiny-shiny.

|Posted by: SkyWolf25 Mar 22 2017, 05:22 AM|
| I managed to get a Gaia Xeno while searching around for more new eggs. Look at my luck ahaha
I saw the vein egg a few minutes from now, so they seem to be dropping normally, just hard to find.
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 22 2017, 05:34 AM|
|I don't think it's helping that they're being blocked by commons|

|I still can't come up with what the name of the Faints might be. :/ Between Terrae and Thunder... It could of course be a semi-made up name, but the only actual word I can think of is Terrestrial. I'm not sure how well that fits, considering they give me more like a sky-blue impression, and they're found high humidity places like the coast and the jungle.|

|didnt see any crystals this hourly drop|
|Posted by: shortaxel Mar 22 2017, 06:03 AM|
|Are these eggs hard to hatch or something? Its been almost 30 minutes of being fully cracked with over 3.3k views/600 unique views sitting in ERs... kind of ridiculous. I missed the hourly drop because of it :/|
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 22 2017, 06:03 AM|
I haven't seen any the past hour during the five minute drops. Either they're being picked up to fast or the commons are blocking them from appearing
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 22 2017, 06:04 AM|
| what colour is dropping rn anyways?
and yeah probably stuck behind the other eggs
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 22 2017, 06:06 AM|
Should be red
Even if the eggs do get taken, there's no crystal eggs being dropped. It's like someone did away with them
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 22 2017, 06:11 AM|
yeah at least yesterday i was seeing them especially at the hour drop but now this is plain a bit disheartening
|Posted by: Laura-Borealis Mar 22 2017, 06:15 AM|
|Only five hours till we see their final forms! I'm excited. I hope the artists will tell us more about the dragons, too.|
|Posted by: kittyrules2003 Mar 22 2017, 06:23 AM|

Anyways, I'm so excited! Only 5 more hours! Shame I'll be at school haha. I wonder if the artists will say anything...

|they were dropping yesterday but this morning? nada|
|Posted by: Amaterasu-sama Mar 22 2017, 06:24 AM|
Yes, the trend so far indicates they are very stubborn and need higher stats to hatch.

|Posted by: Sapphira_Majoram Mar 22 2017, 06:28 AM|
| Now I know who got that one red crystal that we all dive-bombed.
I just need another red to complete my first red pair man. :/ I have a pair of faints, a pair of blue crystals (amazingly!) and one red. I just need another red crystal before the hour change. >^< Dammit!
I don't like green (dragons, or clothing or anything like that except for nature which wears green smashingly well) so everybody else can help themselves to the greens if you find them during the hour changes. xP good luck!
I'm gonna complete my red pair somehow and then continue getting more blues unless of course the reds turn out surprisingly well as adults. O.o Hmm we'll see -p-
|Posted by: Amaterasu-sama Mar 22 2017, 06:28 AM|
They seem to be going through motions. In morning for me (5-6 hours ago) they were dropping more but blumina was nowhere to be spotted for hours. Couple of hours ago I started seeing blumina again but crystals stopped dropping. Now they are dropping one egg in a while or so. I just think their drop pattern is highly unstable that is all.
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 22 2017, 06:29 AM|

(but I think the trade is closed, someone else offered. Can find another trade with a bluminae as an offer request anyways)
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 22 2017, 06:46 AM|
alrighty i just wanted to know if i can catch the bluminae after the crystals?

It's not helping we have 50+ people and commons sitting there

There was one this drop? I didn't even see it..
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 22 2017, 06:49 AM|
| still i think i could have gotten it if my fingers werent just clicking so fast on the volcano link refreshing the page quickly
but yeah the commons are annoying but at least its not 100+ people like yesterday
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 22 2017, 06:49 AM|
yeah it was hidden behind the other common eggs
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 22 2017, 06:53 AM|
I did contact TJ about the issue. Hopefully he'll respond and have an explanation as to why these eggs are so scarce right now. Because I find it odd that I've been searching more than an hour (almost two) and only have seen two crystal eggs go by solely because I think it's going to jump to 100+ people again today looking for these eggs
|Posted by: SilverQuetzal Mar 22 2017, 06:56 AM|
|Still need one more green and 2 blues but all I can do is hoping for kindness or breeding the hell out of my dragons because I can not catch CB gold/silver with my internet connection.... worst release ever for me personal. I do not have fun at all. =(|
|Posted by: greycat Mar 22 2017, 06:59 AM|
|i didn't even see the red that other people did. i haven't seen any crystals in the last 12 hours or so, though i saw quite a few yesterday, and even managed to catch a couple of them. i have very slow broadband (lately it's been .4mbps), so was amazed to get them. i did get one from the ap, and traded for another. it seems like they are really getting scarcer now, though maybe i'm just not seeing them before they're grabbed. i saw a silver today, and another yesterday, and i hardly ever see them. i never see golds, maybe one a year if i'm lucky, and i'm yet to catch one, after several years of playing.|
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 22 2017, 07:01 AM|
i'll catch those for you if you'd like c:
didnt see any crystals at the hourly drop
|Posted by: TerraAnne Mar 22 2017, 07:02 AM|
| sorry about that I just posted the link at the top of the page in the url bar. I was excited that they were showing up in the AP. Won't do it again I swear.
Now I just need two reds and I'm happy. Though I might be egg locked right now need to check.
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 22 2017, 07:04 AM|
i caught a red just for you earlier this morning!
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 22 2017, 07:04 AM|
Yes, they are scarce. They were high in value and that shot up when a lot of people got view bombed during the night, causing people to rush back into the volcano and try to nab these eggs.
It did not help that after ten hours that common eggs mixed back in. Now these high in demand eggs are being blocked by commons
And TJ is MIA about the whole situation
Edit: Fffffff- I MISSED A GREEN! I'm bowing out on catching these guys for a while. I have work today and there's now 70+ people scrambling for these eggs
|Posted by: TerraAnne Mar 22 2017, 07:12 AM|
Sorry but I am egg locked though two of my crystals only have three days left to hatch. The next closest eggs I've got to hatch are in 11 hours.
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 22 2017, 07:13 AM|
oh i dont mind holding onto it for you besides its on coolown. send me a pm with a dummy egg inside once you're no longer egglocked and i'll offer the red crystal on it once its off cooldown c:
whoops missed a green
|Posted by: TerraAnne Mar 22 2017, 07:16 AM|
| oh lookie that green egg hatched.
Anything you might want in particular for the red crystal egg? A shimmer, tinsel maybe, or a xeno? I suppose you'll just abandon the dummy egg after the trade though to keep room for crystals. o.o
|Posted by: Dogzilla Mar 22 2017, 07:17 AM|
|I've noticed that Pyralspite eggs (Almandine & Spessartine) have become increasingly more obtainable. They may be moving from Rare to Uncommon and allowing for new Rare eggs.|
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 22 2017, 07:17 AM|
i dont need anything in return c: just any old dummy egg will do <3
no greens this drop
|Posted by: TerraAnne Mar 22 2017, 07:21 AM|
Mkay well the dummy egg is still a shimmer cause I felt like it.
If you do abandon dummy eggs normally to free up space for crystals then someone in the Abandoned egg area will get a surprise. <3
This egg I just realized had an awesome code D0Dof and I hope someone loves it eventually.
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 22 2017, 07:26 AM|
| no greens this drop either sadly
refreshed over the green this drop
|Posted by: TerraAnne Mar 22 2017, 07:37 AM|
|Wow yeah these eggs don't seem to want to hatch. My one blue has got tons of clicks and views and it still won't get to that last cracking stage. I'll just be sitting in eggs around the world giving views because if all my eggs are having trouble with low views then other people are too. Though yeah I just said the crystal was doing well on views for a normal egg.|

The drops in volcano aren't really showing new eggs somehow and even if I did see one, they're snatched up quickly and change to another egg. Even the 5 min drops don't show them off for a while upon frequent page refreshes. Cave lag more or less

| 2 Red, 1 Green, 0 Blue = my current count on the Crystal eggs (and a misclicked Nexus - but that's okay because I needed another one of these )

Also, I'll try to help keep an eye on the dropping rate. and I can help out with anything else anyone needs, when I get the chance. (My life is sorta unpredictable. Honestly I'm probably gonna sleep soon. But I'll give it my best shot before and after that.)

| Still have no idea for the Bluminae's name (maybe something with "territory"?), but it would be pretty funny if the crystal dragons were called "Firewatch" (you know, because the hatchlings look as if they are burning through the eggs, and have Desipis-like tails, plus "watch" as in "clock") or something like that.
...I'll see myself out. :v

|Posted by: ZenithNadir Mar 22 2017, 10:07 AM|
| Really bummed about not being able to get the last of the colors, but hopefully they won't become insanely rare in the future. I might be able to trade for bred Blue eggs in the future but I'd really like to have a CB one someday!
Either way, I'm super excited to see the adult art and read the breed descriptions! I'll be sticking around for that much!
|Posted by: Amaterasu-sama Mar 22 2017, 10:07 AM|
To be fair, they have been ridiculously hard to spot today,let alone catch. The drop rate pattern for both release is very unstable and unpredictable. During my timezone, there were no faints until afternoon, then dropped a little for 2-3 hours, now back to being elusive.
|Posted by: UkyoKuonji2004 Mar 22 2017, 10:08 AM|
|Okay, this is insanity. Not to mention unfair to those who don't have stable internet. I have no hope in getting this. I only ask for one crystal, I don't care which one. And I can't even SEE them anymore, let alone click them. So I can only rely on someone gifting me one. I gotta get back to work soon anyway...|
|Posted by: Pryanka Mar 22 2017, 10:08 AM|
|does TJ not monitor new releases? I see a lot of people like...begging TJ to pay attention to the drop rate, or at the very least, verify that they become so rare so quickly on purpose. It just seems like a basic interaction for staff/admin to provide...so I find it hard to believe tj just has no idea this is going on. But then if he does know, why won't he say anything? I didn't see the release until around 9-10pm on day 1, and everything was already mixed in.|

| Almost everyone here: Can't wait to see the adults!

Yeah, I just want my two pairs of adults and be done with it. So far I just need two green crystals and a red.
However, I am incredibly happy that I made other people happy by gifting them these eggs
It also didn't help that people got view bombed.

| Man, I had an easier time getting my second load of xenos during their release, and the entire week following, than I am the last 24 hours getting another crystal egg. This is ridiculous.
Edit: and I also think they're Fire Opals.

I think the green ones will go with Soulstones.
I will do the same

|Posted by: UkyoKuonji2004 Mar 22 2017, 10:14 AM|
I was thinking the same thing. I managed to get one of each when they were released. Yet for some reason this release had to be the one I can't even see in the cave...

| We've got our first adult! The Tetra!
I like it, nice colours, simple and clean design. I like it very much in fact.

|The Tetras remind me of Rainwings ftom the Wings of Fire books. Both in design and description. Me likes.|
|Posted by: Pluviophillia Mar 22 2017, 10:19 AM|
| What would you say? Is Tetra a small, medium or big sized breed of dragon? In my oppinion they look kinda like a bigger version of a drake
I really love them and I think they look nice with Water Walkers

|Posted by: harlequinraven Mar 22 2017, 10:25 AM|
Many people do lineages that need more than one CB. They aren't greedy. They're just trying to get when they need, too. Or people who never have a chance to get rares any other way are using it as an opportunity to finally get what they need as far as rares, due to the demand. EVERY release, after they stop dropping exclusively, the new eggs become hard to find. Every release, people blame "greedy" people. Eventually they even out and the drops become easier to get (unless they actually are rares, of course). Keep in mind that with a multi-colour release like this, the most anyone can get is one of each pair and one extra (IF they ignored the other new release eggs). That's hardly enough to make lineages off of.
P.S. No, I don't have more than a single pair of each colour.
|Posted by: Laura-Lana Mar 22 2017, 10:25 AM|
| Whoa! That blue gem fire one is amazing!
I like the Tetra one too. It's cute.
|Posted by: Pluviophillia Mar 22 2017, 10:25 AM|
|I really like their facial expression! I like blues but still, my favorite in palette are greens. Still waiting for them|
|Posted by: Ripan Mar 22 2017, 10:26 AM|
| Fire Gems, holy
Blue female's got a powerful pose and her colours are suitably gem-like.
If I have any concrit it'd be that at first glance she has quite a lot going on, and it becomes a bit muddled together, unless you take a proper hard look. The fire she's spitting looks rather... compact, for being fire.
|Posted by: shortaxel Mar 22 2017, 10:26 AM|

|Posted by: Laura-Borealis Mar 22 2017, 10:30 AM|
| The Tetras are BEAUTIFUL! The colors, their graceful pose, the cute little paws.... serious love for these dragons Thank you for them
Fire Gems, not opals! Still a great name. I love the description. I can just imagine groups of these dragons showing off and trading their gem hordes. Can't wait to see the rest of the adults.

btw huge thank you to Amaterasu for giving me a blue egg! At least now I have one red and one blue now. The green ones seem oddly harder to get, but it's okay as long as I can breed for that one when these two mature.

|OMG the red! This is too much awesome. Blue and red are now tied for my fav, and we've only seen the females so far. Come on boys, don't let the females take all the spotlight.|
|Posted by: Gryphonic Mar 22 2017, 10:35 AM|
| Tetras, by name and coloring, made me reflexively look at the inhabitants of the fishtank beside me. And I like their sleekness, and that shade of blue I don't think we have in any dragon besides maybe Nilias.
Fire Gems (close!) with their distinct scales, coiled necks, open mouths, and bold colors, make me think of the dragons on old Chinese tapestries. And the coiling fire design from the female's mouth, as well.
And my brain popped out "Zippertails!" as a nickname.

|Are the eggs still dropping? I can't tell if the drop is over...or if the eggs are just going THAT fast that they are all gone by the time my page loads. If it's still happening....how long will they continue to drop for? I've been trying for 4 days to nab just one in the volcano, but my internet connection is super slow, so I don't stand a chance They're SOO beautiful!!!! I hope I'm able to catch one!|

I've been on for 3 hours and haven't seen a crystal AT ALL! Are they dropping at all?
To the luckier among us who were able to nab these eggs when they were first dropping, could you be kind enough to gift some to those of us who haven't caught any. Please?
|Posted by: Amaterasu-sama Mar 22 2017, 10:53 AM|

|Posted by: fuzzbucket Mar 22 2017, 10:55 AM|
Thanks HR. I was about to say much the same. My scroll goals are a minimum four CB of every breed for EG lines, so basically I "need" 12 Gems. That's not quite the same as "greed". And this IS a collecting game, after all.
Fabulous adults. I hope the s1 gem hatchies get cleaned up in the end though. I'm not saving a sprite as they stand...

|I'd be trying for the last blue egg I need for the pairs, but I'm egg locked right now. (Anyone mind getting a pink in exchanage for a blue fire gem? ((Joking but also kinda serious))) I'll probably have mine up for breeding when they mature, and give out the eggs to people who need them.|
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 22 2017, 10:57 AM|
CellyBean and I have been trying to gift to people with the resources we have, but due to limitations, it's proven to be extremely difficult. Even more so now that everyone knows what the adults look like

I am not worried about tetras to be honest, their ratios should stabilize soon enough. Even nexus looked like a rare dragon during its release.
|Posted by: Newmani Mar 22 2017, 11:07 AM|
|Oh my gosh they're so pretty! I love the gems the best, though the tetras are gorgeous too. I gotta try and get them all now!|
|Posted by: Shebainu Mar 22 2017, 11:07 AM|
Me too. I'm ready to give up dragcave altogether. When I think about the hours I spend there ~ what a colossal waste of time, especially when none of the new eggs are nowhere to be seen.
Yo, TJ, can you change this dropping schedule a bit so you don't completely lose some of us "old timers"?
|Posted by: Pluviophillia Mar 22 2017, 11:08 AM|
|Blue Fire Gem males have a very dynamic pose and I love the detail on their tail. It's good to have a dragon that has the tail in front of it so we get a better view of it|
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 22 2017, 11:11 AM|
I'm not going to quit DC
However, I did give him a PM about this because this itself is alarming. Not only did the new eggs got mixed in with the old eggs ten hours in, people also got view bombed and lost all their eggs.
TJ is an extremely busy guy so I'll try to poke Sock about it and see what they say
|Posted by: maylin Mar 22 2017, 11:11 AM|
| Love the adults!^^
And can people stop complaining that the Gems are not dropping like cave blockers?
You would only be happy for a week and then hate them.
|Posted by: Frodo Mar 22 2017, 11:12 AM|
| Wow, those adults are MAGNIFICANT! Both Tetras, and Fire Gems.
They're really hard to catch now, but I'll keep trying.
From the Fire Gems, I like the blue ones best - love flames from the blue female, and tail on the blue male.
Thankyou TJ & spriters.

The blue fire gems are my favorite.
|Posted by: Sirithiliel Mar 22 2017, 11:14 AM|
i don't think people are asking for them to drop like cave blockers.
I think people are just wanting to see a few more drop so that everyone has a chance to get one. Some people are getting their second round of eggs while others of us don't even have one of certain ones, or any at all. The old eggs began mixing in relatively quick and not everyone was able to fill up on the initial release, and the days following have been a literal nightmare for many of us, spending hours and hours failing to even SEE one in the volcano biome.
So...i don't think people are being unreasonable here, and i haven't seen anyone ask for them to be cave blocker common.
|Posted by: oddsoxdi Mar 22 2017, 11:15 AM|
|I really love the new dragons - those Blue Fire Gems are scrumptious!! Too damned bad i can't even SEE them in the Volcano!|

| Ok. Corteo, you did an amazing job with these guys. They look fantastic. Even in their static pose they look natural and relaxed. I really like these guys.
The firegems are stunningly beautiful as well. They are so dynamic and the concept is really cool. I feel a bit irked that I'm having to fight my way through 80 people to get the only blue one I'm missing for a complete collection.
Great job, spriters. What a lovely release.
|Posted by: Gealach Mar 22 2017, 11:19 AM|

Thank you TJ and spriters!

|Add my name to the list of people who missed out on getting all the Fire Gems. I got two blues and a red, but none of my favorite color. : / I got egg locked pretty quick because of the old eggs that were sporadically added in during the time I looked. I'm not saying that they should be cave blockers, but a fair chance for those of us who weren't able to get all of them would be nice before they get relegated to the super rare category.|
|Posted by: Husky51 Mar 22 2017, 11:21 AM|
| I'm done... the last four or five five-min drops (and twice on the hour) and nothing, so I will be satisfied with what I have...
If you're going to drop a variety like was done this time around, how about holding off on the mixing for a week or so...
sigh...despite what I wrote above, I will undoubtedly log in a time or two to try and find the three CB's I desire to complete my pairs... I am not looking for gifting, I want to get them on my own... Are they still dropping according to schedule as per the color separations?
|Posted by: maylin Mar 22 2017, 11:21 AM|
I was late too but there has been plenty of time to at least get a few before they stopped dropping like a new release. Its Wednesday and they dropped Sunday morning.
You would have the same trouble trying to get a balloon dragon

| Tetra Dragons Extra Info
Habitat: Tetra dragons live on the coasts and in the jungle, preferring more humid climates. They need habitats with easy access to hiding places.
Diet: While Tetra dragons do eat some vegetation, the majority of their diet consists of fish and small rodents. If a Tetra Dragon’s diet isn’t satisfactory for their needs, their colors will fade.
Mating: Tetra dragons mate for life in the wild, though in captivity it is possible to to match them with multiple mates.
Wild Behavior: Tetra dragons have a poisonous bite that they use as a defense mechanism. In the wild, they are somewhat more independent than their tame counterparts.
Tame Behavior and keeping: Tame Tetra dragons do not make affectionate companions. While they are very dependent on others of their own kind, they can be standoffish around humans.
Hatchling behavior: Hatchlings tend to be clingy and need constant companionship. If you do not earn their trust they will be skittish around you. Hatchlings are very active an often get themselves in trouble.
Magic: Tetra dragons breath fire but that is about the extent of their magical abilities.
Meta: The Tetra Dragon was a personal nostalgia project. I wanted to create a dragon that I could imagine being released when I first joined. The colors are based on neon tetra fish - my favorite fish from my aquarium growing up. Hope you enjoy them!
|Posted by: DarknessDragon197 Mar 22 2017, 11:22 AM|
| Absolutely stunning! I'm amazed by this release, truly such wonderful dragons that I simply can't pick a favorite. ♡ Well done spriters and thank you again for another release.
Really want to horde these beauties but that will have to wait until the hype dies down- still going to continue gifting these though!
|Posted by: lunarrs Mar 22 2017, 11:24 AM|
|I'm so glad I was able to nab all three colors during the first day of the release and I'm so exited to see my hatchlings grow up!!|
|Posted by: Erinthebookworm Mar 22 2017, 11:25 AM|
Just throwing my two cents in, but you seem to forget something important. Not everyone has amazingly fast internet like you do. Some of us have to wait a minute for pages to load, in which case all the new dragon eggs get taken by the time the page loads. Just because you can afford amazingly fast internet and have great reflexes doesn't mean everyone else does. Just something to keep in mind.
Edit: Before you start pointing fingers at the fire gem dragons I have, the only reason I have them now is because I got lucky and I have decently fast internet.

|Posted by: MisaTange Mar 22 2017, 11:36 AM|
| I think it's not unreasonable to drop them like cave blockers for like 24 hours or something. This species required you to be there at a certain place or time to get a certain variant, and some variants showed hints of at least user-run rareness (some majority having no problem getting red gems and asking for blue/green gems).
edit: BTW, I LOVE the green gems and tetras especially!
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 22 2017, 11:37 AM|
| apparently the drop only lasted for four hours reading earlier in the thread (like the very beginning) before old eggs mixed in
4 hours is not enough time
|Posted by: Pluviophillia Mar 22 2017, 11:38 AM|
| Oh, well, a little bit off topic but
Lately my Tetra and Fire Gem hatchlings get removed from the hatchery I use and this is kind of annoying :/
Anyone has the same problem?
|Posted by: Aleoleo Mar 22 2017, 11:39 AM|
| Wow, the Tetra dragons are GORGEOUS. *v* They easily come up in my top 5 favorites... I will be hoarding these! (or trying to? I hope they don't end up too hard to find)
I love the lore as well, I hope it makes it to the Encyclopedia soon! And BTW Corteo, I'd love the extra info about the Nilias to be added as well... *hint, hint*
I'm not too fond of the Fire Gems... While the poses and colors are truly spectacular, they look really blurry/pixelated to me?
But uh. Since I seem to be unable to catch them, I guess it's good they're not my favorites?! (...find joy in the little things.......)

I have two of the Tetras, and two Fire gems. One blue, one red, and no greens. I'd like a pair of both, but that doesn't seem like it's going to be anytime soon.
I shall try.
|Posted by: luxrayx Mar 22 2017, 11:41 AM|
^Literally my first thought when I saw the adults
The Fire Gems are glorious. They are magnificent. They are truly deserving of all the extravagant adjectives! I look forward to seeing the green male. I also look forward to breeding Tetras with Luminas. Great job, all spriters
|Posted by: Erinthebookworm Mar 22 2017, 11:42 AM|
I concur. From what I've seen, what normally happens is the flood lasts for 24 hours before the old eggs start mixing in.
|Posted by: Laura-Borealis Mar 22 2017, 11:43 AM|
Or burninating something. The first thing I thought of was this - just mentally reverse the colors...
Or like this haha (apologies to the artists)
|Posted by: Syiren Mar 22 2017, 11:45 AM|
|Guys, there's no need to start jumping on each others case about this. Yes, it is stressful that they're hard to see let alone grab, yes there are those who have completed sets and will boast about their achievement, I understand your position, I've been there so many times myself, but there are also many kind people who are huntimg for othere people and offering to breed their dragons for those who couldn't grab any. Just calm down, These dragons are a permanent release.|

The only part that kind of bothers me is the Blue Male's tail looks... I don't know, bulky? But that's like 1% of a complaint. They're gorgeous and the spriters did an awesome job with them.
The reds are my favorite... the contrast is so interesting. I'm starting to wonder if the smaller s1 sprites are supposed to look rather blurry? These dragons have a retro 16 bit feel to me, I don't really know why. It kinda makes the bluriness fit perfectly!
|Posted by: Nightwalkerkey Mar 22 2017, 11:46 AM|
| Wow, gorgeous! I especially like the female blue and green, and the male red
I like the blue tails, even though they are bigger. The red female throws me off cause her tail looks like another dragon head/mouth almost x)

| I contacted Z about the issue. They have no idea what's going on like the rest of us.
So until TJ comes on, we really have no real answer as to why this happened.

check your pms c: got a red crystal waiting for you <3
|Posted by: maylin Mar 22 2017, 11:48 AM|
| My favorite is the green Gem
and it could just mean they will be rares, what's the normal time they start mixing in?
I only remember that every single time there is a new release that people start complaining that they mix too soon. So I can only think that it is normal for them to mix so soon.

I think my main frustration is that i like CBs, i like to create my own breeding plans and work on them
And permanent releases of highly valued / rare dragons means they might as well be limited releases =/ i've never seen a copper, a xenowyrm, gold, silver, trio, etc. I've NEVER seen them in the cave after their release date. I'm one of those that doesn't have fast internet i guess, though my internet works fine on every other site but dragon cave. But on those hourly drops my dragon cave freezes up for couple of minutes, and by then any of the cool rare things are already gone, leaving me with yet more cave blockers to stare at.
If i dont' get them on release day, I have to rely on kind people gifting them to me, but even that is hard to do because i have no lineages of value to breed that'd tempt people to offer up one of their rare CB eggs.
That's part of my frustration. yes, they're permanent releases, but that means nothing when i've not seen a single rare / uncommon egg outside their release period. This is the first release i missed the first day on, and it looks like i just so happened to miss a breed that's going to vanish as fast as Xenowyrms and coppers do, which means I won't see them. I'll have to settle for trying to breed 2nd gen green crystals i guess and just not make lineages with them
|Posted by: Nightwalkerkey Mar 22 2017, 11:50 AM|
Yeah what happened? The drop, or the way the s2 hatchies look blurry, or something else?
Everything seems fine/normal to me.
|Posted by: Odeen Mar 22 2017, 11:52 AM|
Why do you keep insisting something happened? Nothing happened.
|Posted by: Nightwalkerkey Mar 22 2017, 11:54 AM|
| Green male looks so .... weird!!! Where's the rest of his body x) He's like a sunsong wannabe with his wing covering everything.
I only see one arm, and not even any back spines, where's the rest of the body! Lol! Someone explain to me how he makes sense
|Posted by: alupe99a Mar 22 2017, 11:54 AM|
| The Tetras are adorable and the Fire Gems are stunning.
I especially love the blue and red females.
|Posted by: Newmani Mar 22 2017, 11:54 AM|
I might have an answer for that. Their description says they store their fire in their tails, and the male blue gem isn't breathing fire like the others. His tail is just full with his own fire; I imagine it shrinks a bit when he does breathe fire like the others.
On topic though... yeah the drop rate kinda needs to be boosted for a bit. Especially if the normal flood was just 4 hours; that's just not enough time, especially given this dragon has three variations that are time based.
|Posted by: Erinthebookworm Mar 22 2017, 11:56 AM|
From my experience it normally takes a day for the new releases to start mixing in. (Then again, I wasn't here for the Xenowyrms so....) and rare eggs drop in all biomes. These eggs will probably be uncommon, which considering how many people have rotten luck with getting eggs doesn't really change anything.
|Posted by: maylin Mar 22 2017, 11:57 AM|
You can still makes trades for them by catching and hatching lots of commons for people.
I have never catch a Gold or a Silver and only have seen maybe 2 silvers and 1 gold in all my years of playing and only a small handful of coppers.
The best way to get the rares you want is from trading, you don't need a rare to trade for a rare. You can catch and trade common hatchlings that people want but don't want to lock them self with. Currently its really easy to get Golds and Silvers and all other rares by trading Olive hatchlings for them.
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 22 2017, 11:58 AM|
According to CellyBean, the eggs were mixed in with the common eggs after four hours. four hours is not enough time for people to collect them.
The first night people went to bed and woke up to find their eggs had been view bombed. That caused a massive rush for people to recollect the eggs that died
Now these eggs are so scarce and people are blaming others of being downright greedy. I saw we need an explanation of TJ of what exactly happened.
the last time I saw a fire Gem egg is seven this morning
|Posted by: Amaterasu-sama Mar 22 2017, 11:58 AM|
|For the blurry issue, I think you would know already but please see the dragon on DC site than forum and see if it's still blurry for you? I have this issue where all images on forum display at 110% zoom so automatically everything is slightly blurry. I thought gems were blurry but when I visited their page, they look just fine. Also the fluffy stuff on their neck etc makes them look a bit blurry. But I am okay with it personally, no complaints.|
|Posted by: maylin Mar 22 2017, 11:59 AM|
I do not believe this is true, I've been to a lot of releases and none have been for 24 hours unless it was a Holiday
|Posted by: arjunvohra Mar 22 2017, 11:59 AM|
| Oh man, that green male's pose!
The fire gems and tetras look amazing!
Kudos to Process, birdz, Corteo, JereduLevenin and TheCompleteAnimorph for these amazing sprites!
And thanks to TJ for the amazing release!
|Posted by: Xythus Mar 22 2017, 12:00 PM|
| These adults are lovely, and a whole another style of spriting! I especially remember seeing the Red Male somewhere as a WIP, and can't believe it's been so long. (Now I'm so glad I can't snipe greens and grabbed mostly reds.)
I totally agree with this!
Thanks for the release TJ/artists!
|Posted by: shortaxel Mar 22 2017, 12:02 PM|
Yeah I agree :x The weird lightly colored line across the neck makes it look like the neck was chopped in half too. Its a very awkward and rather disappointing sprite. All the other poses look great but the one I was most excited to breed just doesn't do it for me at all.... I regret influencing my only Green male.
|Posted by: Nightwalkerkey Mar 22 2017, 12:03 PM|
| For those having a rough time catching, I've seen a couple float thru the ap (Can't grab any because I'm hatchie locked).
Thanks TJ and spriters for this release, awesome stuff!
|Posted by: Erinthebookworm Mar 22 2017, 12:04 PM|
You are probably right on that, considering I have a poor memory. Still, I think most have lasted for more than 4 hours. The view bombing was also a contributor to how little there seems to be now.
|Posted by: EmmaD333 Mar 22 2017, 12:04 PM|
| This hour drop locked up my whole computer for a good 2-3 minutes. I've seen maybe ONE on one five minute drop.
Computer, why have you betrayed me?
There's like no way I will be able to complete my set. *sighs deeply*
I might stop as soon as I get a green one.
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 22 2017, 12:04 PM|
heres the original stuff i was talking about
|Posted by: Alrexwolf Mar 22 2017, 12:06 PM|
| I almost don't think the green males are supposed to look that way? I mean, you can see the back of the red female's wings and they don't look so... I don't know what I'm looking for?
So much like skin? But not even that the tips of the wings are even a different color... but not the whole tip of the wing.
It almost looks like it was uploaded with a texture layer missing or something
|Posted by: maylin Mar 22 2017, 12:09 PM|
| Still love the Greens but I do wonder where the males back legs are.
The legs are very large on the Female so I do not think they could be hiding under the thin wing, some of it should be able to be seen. And the arm does seems to be like it only has one in the middle >->'
|Posted by: Nightwalkerkey Mar 22 2017, 12:09 PM|
I was wondering the same thing. I guess they can say the wing is covering up 2back legs and 1front leg, but there's space for another front to be further out from the bottom/back wing, and it makes more sense (to me) to show the back legs poking out at least.
I agree, looking at the wing of the male green compared to the others it doesn't exactly fit? I guess?
And still, it looks like he should at least have some back spines (comparing to other sprites), and not a clean curved back/wing area....
I do like how the females have horns and males don't though!
|Posted by: Amaterasu-sama Mar 22 2017, 12:09 PM|
Just curious, how many people got view bombed to the point the eggs were killed and how many were killed? Not trying to be mean but this has been discussed so many times over years and yet the view bombing mechanism remains a part of game as a "risk factor", I doubt a case can be made to TJ unless there was a considerable number of loss which was extremely unusual. Viewbombings have happened in past and as sad as they are, I doubt that is enough to sway TJ.
|Posted by: Confused Cat Mar 22 2017, 12:10 PM|
| RGB dragons with CMY flames! These are cool. I didn't expect them all to have different poses, this is going to be interesting. I hope they breed the colors depending on the hour just the way they drop in the cave so we can make all kinds of lineages with them.
Their tails remind me of the Desipises. I wonder how those breeds will look together...
And the Tetras are so beautiful. So elegant and peaceful, with an unusual but natural looking color combination. I love looking at them.
Can't wait to make lineage plans for all of these! =)
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 22 2017, 12:11 PM|

|The male green looks very awkward. Otherwise, everything is perfect.|
|Posted by: Nightwalkerkey Mar 22 2017, 12:12 PM|
In the ap! There's a few dropped behind the mint wall. I saw two blues, at least! Haven't been in the cave enough to spot any.
|Posted by: angelicdragonpuppy Mar 22 2017, 12:12 PM|
| I like how the male crystals have crests while the females have cobra hoods! Very cool :3
They're all very lovely but I think the blues might be taking first place! They're so dark in spots that it makes the bright blue pop and creates a lovely skeletal effect. Makes me wish Celestials held their dark color longer as they'd make a pretty pair. Also like the poses on the reds (especially how the female's tail almost looks like a chimeric snake head tail!) and the jade statue impression of the greens.
The Tetras are still adorable as well! I love their colors and the long lanky friendly look they have going on. For some reason they make me think desert breed even though they're the complete opposite
Very nice release!

| Wow the fire gem adults are stunning. Can't help but wish they were separated among biomes but oh well, great release.
I was going through the thread out of curiosity and that seemed to be the only report of eggs mixing in that early. People started properly talking about it around 8 hours after the release started, which is not very unusual from what I remember from past months.
|Posted by: Naruhina_94 Mar 22 2017, 12:19 PM|
|What an amazing relase! absolutly stunning fire gem dragons, wow!|
|Posted by: Ripan Mar 22 2017, 12:27 PM|
Yeah, that's the impression I got as well.
The fire looks a bit too solid is my primary critique of the Fire Gem sprites, but as shown above, it can be interpreted in a more comical light.
The red males are smoking on burning pipes.
|Posted by: harlequinraven Mar 22 2017, 12:28 PM|
|Finally got two tetras! One from the AP, one from the cave. :3|
|Posted by: MhKhu Mar 22 2017, 12:31 PM|
There ARE 2 front legs visible, the further one is hiding behind the front one, but you can still see 2 arms there, we guess you take it as 1 very wide arm then?
We agree about the res here though:P
We like how the Green male has the same head size compared to his female... a pit of a pity the others don't match and have smaller heads than their females. We like the blue set most, not only as a set though! And the Green female is the 2nd:)
Just a bit too much contrast in the shading, the black is too black, at least on this screen. Will stand out in the Cave a lot
|Posted by: Raptor of Dragons Mar 22 2017, 12:32 PM|
|I've long since given up on trying to catch the fire gems. *Sighs* no point since I'm on mobile and I have to fight over 80+ people for one egg|
|Posted by: Marie19R Mar 22 2017, 12:39 PM|
| WOW. That's all I have to say. Wow.
Well, no, I have more to say. Those Fire Gems are gorgeous! I love the sharpness, the detail, their scales! I have to say I was a little iffy about them as hatchlings, but omg I looooove these adults! The green male does look a little awkward, because it really seems like we should be able to see a *little* of the back of their body. But other then that I'm loving these!
|Posted by: Nightwalkerkey Mar 22 2017, 12:44 PM|
Oh, thanks for pointing that out. I guess I see it now, I was thinking it was more of a muscley arm than a skinny two. And to blend with the other sprites, I expected to see it less trying to be more elegant and put together and more sprawled out, being able to see full body pieces. (Ex; arm to me makes more sense out in front of the other, to the far right)
Still doesn't explain the back legs or if the wing is supposed to be like that, but ohwell! I always like to see what will breed well to my tinsel, and since he's male, I don't have to worry about this male- I like all the females
|Posted by: harlequinraven Mar 22 2017, 12:46 PM|
I keep looking, but I only BARELY see that other leg. It kind of blends in with the wing.

|Posted by: Aleoleo Mar 22 2017, 12:56 PM|
Yup. I'm definitely building a checker with female Gemshards (I'm thinking red) just because of that.
|Posted by: Vampyre Mar 22 2017, 12:58 PM|
| Everyone is all critiquing the greens...and they are my faves? The artist for sure spent more time on them because the heads are GORGEOUS and the color shade.
You people need to remember that a HUMAN (or humans) sprited/arted these. Therefore they have a high chance to not be perfect. If YOU want 'perfect' dragons then get you to the dragon suggestions and start spriting!
|Posted by: Romulan Mar 22 2017, 12:58 PM|
| I am still 0 on volcano new releases.
Its just about impossible. At any given time no matter the hour there are at least 60 or more ppl there all vying to catch the eggs.
I really think that new releases need at least 2 full days of being the sole item dropping in their respective biome. There are too many people playing for everyone to get their eggs with the current time settings.
|Posted by: Isuzu Mar 22 2017, 12:58 PM|
| Oh my the Tetras look so happy!
The Blue Fire Gems are probably my favorite of the 3. And is it just me, or does the Green male look like he's missing something?
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 22 2017, 01:02 PM|
| his back legs are hidden so maybe thats what you think is missing?
saw a cheese on the hour but other than that just commons
|Posted by: oddsoxdi Mar 22 2017, 01:04 PM|
Same here - nada. If the flood drop WAS as short as people say - for what would obviously be an extremely popular and changing on the hour dragon - really really disappointing.
|Posted by: jewel21 Mar 22 2017, 01:05 PM|
|Seriously, are any of these eggs still dropping? I've been refreshing in the coast, jungle and volcano for 3 hours and haven't seen a single one....|
|Posted by: Ashywolf Mar 22 2017, 01:06 PM|
| The crystal ones dropped reasonably well on the first day but that didn't make getting them any easier. I think this is the first time since the golden wyverns that I've been present since the start of the release and not been able to catch any.
But you know, crystals. Crystal hype is real
|Posted by: CellyBean Mar 22 2017, 01:06 PM|
they've stopped dropping as much today then they were yesterday. there were more crystals this morning between 7-9 am but now it seems there may be one crystal egg per hour if we get lucky
|Posted by: dragontamer44722 Mar 22 2017, 01:08 PM|
|I love that the Fire Gems have different poses for the colors, makes them that much collectable! I can't really say which set I prefer. I will say I'm happy to get the ones I've got, but I can't wait to get some green ones down the road, I really like their poses for some reason. And the Tetras are so freakin cute!|

|Posted by: Ylvanne Mar 22 2017, 01:08 PM|
It's still hard for me to see the leg too. That's not my main problem, tho. I don't like the neck. It looks like it was flat, hard and strong, but flat; like you were folding a sheet of steel (that's the feeling I get), instead of it being round, like a neck.
Otherwise, I think every dragon in this release is gorgeous!
Congrats to the spriters ^^
|Posted by: walkinslow Mar 22 2017, 01:16 PM|
Hey, the greens are my favourites, too, there's absolutely nothing wrong with them!
But I absolutely adore the laughing Bluminae, uh, Tetrae. Even as adults they're still super cute.
Well done, spriters, thank you!
ETA: Ooohh, and a Mint wall!
|Posted by: Painter Mar 22 2017, 01:16 PM|
| I absolutely love the Tetras. A very nice "simple" contrast to the very flamboyant Fire Gems. Very well done and some unique coloring too. Not to mention I've adored the hatchies since the beginning.
I like the Fire Gems' unusual black shading. I think it's quite a nice style to have added to DC. We need some variance like that, sometimes. And they're all unique poses!
It'll be interesting actually putting effort towards hunting for these, too. I really like this release.
Can't wait to hoard both breeds.
