These gemstone ones seem to be some kinda fancy. blink.gif
I got three gemstones, and two of each of the other two. happy.gif

Yeah new release! And already 3 eggs for me biggrin.gif

Posted by: Doublelift Mar 28 2015, 12:02 PM
omg yay biggrin.gif
i was wondering why all the biomes were empty

Posted by: Fly-by-Night Mar 28 2015, 12:03 PM
Yay - I was hoping for a slightly late birthday present for me and had a feeling there'd be a release.
Thanks! smile.gif

Posted by: Reidragon Mar 28 2015, 12:04 PM
Heck yeah!!!!! New eggs! Too bad I picked up that Brute earlier xd.png I locked myself with all three of them still but I wish I had space for one more plated egg :/ Still yay! Omg I love you TJ

Posted by: Lazurite Mar 28 2015, 12:04 PM
Whee, new release, long time no see! xd.png

Posted by: Chococat0815 Mar 28 2015, 12:04 PM
I already grabbed two of the ones with the puddle and one of either of the others tongue.gif
I'm so glad there is finally a release. Awesome!

Posted by: ObsessedWithCats Mar 28 2015, 12:05 PM
*flaps around madly*

THANK YOU TJ! This is the first normal release I've ever seen.

I caught a leafy-plated looking one and a gemstoney one xd.png

I actually have to go revise right now (I came specifically to check :3) but I'll be back in a couple of hours to see what else I can catch.

Posted by: Nakuru Mar 28 2015, 12:05 PM
Yay! I have to wait 3 hours to hunt, but I'm happy seeing a new release ♥

Posted by: KaelaBoo24 Mar 28 2015, 12:06 PM
Aw man, gotta swipe some now. Thanks TJ!

Posted by: Niyaka Mar 28 2015, 12:06 PM
The gemstone one might be familiar, but I don't think I've seen the others before

Posted by: Slaskia Mar 28 2015, 12:06 PM
Gah! And I have two eggs I can't drop as they are IOU payment (go fig). Time to incubate them.

I'm just missing the gemstone one for now. Hopefully that one doesn't become like the coast/alpine Pyalspites....

Posted by: zaverxi Mar 28 2015, 12:06 PM
Oh my god is that 3 different alts for the gems

One of them has no dimorphism

One has dimorphism

One has AT LEAST 3 ALTS WITH DIMORPHISM

Of course I have eggs I couldn't toss.

Edit: FIRST PAGE!


Also:



THANK YOU TJ

You avoided an uprising! biggrin.gif YAY EGGS

Posted by: djengis Mar 28 2015, 12:07 PM
wow so many gem eggs!! I'm hoping different colors

Posted by: dragonpuck Mar 28 2015, 12:08 PM
yay, will wait a bit but have room for a a pair of each

Edit: only need the massive plates and apparently a bunch of gemstones rolleyes.gif

Posted by: Lord X-Giga-X Mar 28 2015, 12:08 PM
Wow, that's a lot eggs. Let the hunt begin!

Posted by: Stromboli Mar 28 2015, 12:09 PM
Woah, the gem dragons sure have a lot of variations.
This'll be fun. smile.gif

Posted by: dothefreddy Mar 28 2015, 12:10 PM
Of course when I lock myself with CB eggs clearing out biomes.

Posted by: Amberfly Mar 28 2015, 12:11 PM
Good thing I decided to wait to start dino hunting. Otherwise I'd be locked with blockers now! I just caught two of each type, but I need more of those gem-encrusted ones!

Posted by: lulu163 Mar 28 2015, 12:11 PM
Thanks!TJ!

Posted by: Earth Gurl Mar 28 2015, 12:11 PM
I also think I know what these gemstones could be.... I'm going to go check if what I'm thinking of is still there.

Posted by: shadowfighter Mar 28 2015, 12:11 PM
GAH! You had all of uc convinced we weren't going to have a release! Well, I've got one of the new ones with gems, gonna try for one of each next. Yay!

Posted by: KaelaBoo24 Mar 28 2015, 12:12 PM
Oh, I've just noticed how many gem-encrusted variations there will be. Need more egg space! D:

Posted by: Niyaka Mar 28 2015, 12:13 PM
Twelve gemstones. Maybe one for each birthstone of the month?

Posted by: jennyfuji Mar 28 2015, 12:14 PM
Wow! 3 different kinds of eggs! Huge workload! Thank you TJ! biggrin.gif

Posted by: zaverxi Mar 28 2015, 12:14 PM
I'm pretty sure I know what the gems ones are too.

And yep, missing from the completed section. happy.gif



....I need more because these will be hoarded.

Posted by: DeathCry Mar 28 2015, 12:14 PM
Most awesome!! I just happened to sign in too xd.png

Lovely new eggs! And so many gems =o

Posted by: LumosSeeker148 Mar 28 2015, 12:14 PM
Came here instantly when the biomes were empty lol
Yay! Super excited for the release! Thanks TJ and spriters! biggrin.gif

I'm thinking there's 6 variants, but he has 12 - one for each gender of variant.

I could be wrong of course though xd.png

QUOTE (Niyaka @ Mar 28 2015, 01:13 PM)

I'd say more likely either 3 variations with hatchling and adult dimorphism, or 4 variations.

Of course, number of eggs doesn't necessarily mean dimorphism, as we saw with the Pyralspite release.

Posted by: Niyaka Mar 28 2015, 12:16 PM
Are the puddley ones dropping in the jungle?

Posted by: imawinner21 Mar 28 2015, 12:16 PM
Holy censorkip.gif what are these eggs?! I had to abandon my brine dragon w/ 10 hrs left until hatching to pick them all up!

Posted by: Tecca Mar 28 2015, 12:16 PM
Yay, I got one of each! Thank you for the release TJ and spriters.

Posted by: Nicola Mar 28 2015, 12:16 PM
I hope the gem ones are either exceptionally common or bred alts. Otherwise collecting them is going to be wacko.gif .

Posted by: ytak Mar 28 2015, 12:17 PM
And here I was going to go hunting and breeding guardians again. smile.gif Well, the one I picked up from the AP will hatch this evening and the other two will hatch soon. But I think I'm going to need more egg slots!

Thanks for the release. I just realized how much I missed the normal releases. And this one is a doozy!

I caught mine in the forest.

Posted by: Slaskia Mar 28 2015, 12:17 PM
Unfortunately even with incubation, it will be at least 7 hrs before I can grab another new egg. I may trade one of the three condensation eggs for a gem one once the cool down is over, so I would least have two of each to start with.

12 eggs for the gem one...if there's no dimorphism that's 6 variations. Yikes! We'll know more for sure once they hatch.

Either way, I hope these are all common...I don't want another coast/alpine Pyalspite situation....

Posted by: azila Mar 28 2015, 12:18 PM
Don't know why, but those "gemstone-encrusted" eggs kind of remind me of M&M cookies. And if there's different variations of whatever those are when they grow up for different months, I'm gonna be very excited.

The ones that are kind of leaf-patterned are quite pretty, too.

Off to find eggs of these!

Posted by: Niyaka Mar 28 2015, 12:18 PM
My last Pink misgendered, so I've lost a female influence for a male...

It is always easy to gender swap new releases when they first come out. Fear not. smile.gif

Posted by: cheese456 Mar 28 2015, 12:24 PM
Oh man. That is a lot of variations for the gem one ;u;

Posted by: DarkPhoenixInnocent Mar 28 2015, 12:25 PM
Well, looks like I'm putting my private linage on hold....

I'm probably just gonna grab gemstones and ignore the other two for now.

Posted by: Laura-Borealis Mar 28 2015, 12:26 PM
Man! Everyone else is so fast. I can't seem to catch any. xd.png

The gem eggs are so intriguing!

The gem-encrusted ones are in the jungle. The other two are in the forest, as far as I can tell.

Edit: I stand corrected. Just caught a plated one in the jungle so that one at least is in both biomes

Posted by: Angelina Gienah Mar 28 2015, 12:27 PM
I woke up this morning, realized that it was saturday and I egg locked myself last night, and I just KNEW there would be a release today!!!

Well, time to drop all of those bread eggs

Posted by: Niyaka Mar 28 2015, 12:28 PM
The puddle egg is similar to the blue-banded's

Posted by: dragontamer44722 Mar 28 2015, 12:30 PM
2 of those eggs look strangely familiar, if they are what I think they are then I am gonna be VERY happy (happy regardless but you know xd.png) I'll take whatever I can get at this point, only have room for 2 eggs.

Posted by: Bubbleme Mar 28 2015, 12:31 PM
There are ... no eggs anywhere? o.o

Posted by: oddsoxdi Mar 28 2015, 12:31 PM
I've seen the Heavy-Plated ones in the Jungle too. Wish they were flood falling.

Just noticed this! Awesome! Thanks TJ and all those involved! smile.gif Wicked looking eggs, these...

Posted by: Ae0nian Mar 28 2015, 12:32 PM
Oh, my! So many new breeds! ohmy.gif
Thank you, TJ and the spriters, for the new release! smile.gif

Posted by: arula Mar 28 2015, 12:32 PM
Woohoo, I really thought there was no chance we were getting a new release this month... so happy to be wrong! biggrin.gif I've grabbed one of the little gem-balls so far. Can't wait to see what the hatchlings look like!

Posted by: Ylvanne Mar 28 2015, 12:33 PM
Released dragons will be in the cave the whole day? Or just an hour or something?

Edit: Btw... THANK YOU FOR THIS! wub.gif
Even if I hunted last night the whole night and don't want to abandon my eggs... THANK YOU! wub.gif

Posted by: Dewdropmon Mar 28 2015, 12:33 PM
Thank goodness I had some incubates available! *incu-hatches eggs*

Posted by: shadowfighter Mar 28 2015, 12:33 PM
Hey, to those of you that have your scroll sorted by breed, with the eggs next to the fully-growns and hatchlings, where do the eggs sort on your scroll?

Probably all day, and for the following days too... when they stop just depends on how rare they are. More drop every five minutes, and big batches each hour.

Posted by: Naughtrish Mar 28 2015, 12:36 PM
Woohoo and I have all my 7 slots free biggrin.gif
Thank you TJ and spriters! About time xd.png

I only collect some dragon breeds, but...

My plated eggs sort between my Mistletoes (Christmas 2014) and my Coppers. (Starts with the letter "C"!)
My gem eggs sort between my Dorsals and my Golds. (Could start with letters "D", "E", "F", or "G". I'm guessing Gem-something.)
My puddle egg sorts between my Spitfire and my Teimarr. (Can start with "S" or "T".)

There'll be a bigger drop on the hour.
Also, it's a permanent release. They'll be around forever. smile.gif

Posted by: Lavinia Mar 28 2015, 12:39 PM
I'm so glad the release is this week rather than during seasonal changeover... I had way too many winters I couldn't drop last weekend. biggrin.gif

Posted by: DeathCry Mar 28 2015, 12:41 PM
It is increasingly harder and harder to catch releases =o
*Looking for that first one of any still* xd.png

Good luck everyone!!

Posted by: quinney Mar 28 2015, 12:41 PM
Not caught one yet. Difficult in a two second drop.

Posted by: Sir Barton Mar 28 2015, 12:42 PM
Naturally, because my computer broke and I won't have it back until next week. Sigh. At least I caught one of the plated ones with my phone.

Posted by: MedievalMystic Mar 28 2015, 12:42 PM
One Plate and one Gemstone so far.

That extra egg slot TJ was asking us about would sure come in handy right about now...

Posted by: Bugzilla Mar 28 2015, 12:43 PM
Oh this is tough... I will probably have to abandon two caveborn copper eggs in order to grab more of the new eggs. sad.gif

And grabbing the new eggs during the 5-minutes drops is tough. I only got 2 eggs so far. This will hopefully become easier with the hourly drops.

Yep, I'm looking for a puddle one, and then I'll be egglocked for the next three hours.

Posted by: Ylvanne Mar 28 2015, 12:44 PM
I have one Puddle so far. Tho, I only have space for one more egg sad.gif

I think we're going to see a pretty awesome AP a couple days from today xd.png

Posted by: Tecca Mar 28 2015, 12:44 PM
The Gemstones sort between Frostbite and Geode
The Plate eggs sort between Coastal Waverunner and Copper
The Condensation eggs sort between Stripe and Sun-Crowned (Yellow-Crowned)

Posted by: Angelina Gienah Mar 28 2015, 12:46 PM
My guess for the gem one is three colors--red, green and blue (see colors on eggs)

They definitely remind me of M&M Cookies

Okay then, so probably a Gem-something on the Gem eggs, C-something on the Plate eggs, and S-something of the puddle eggs. Neat!

Posted by: TheCompleteAnimorph Mar 28 2015, 12:47 PM
I'm just getting one of the stripey puddly egg since it looks, from TJ only having two, that they won't be dimorphic. And they'll probably become common before too long. That way I can get a pair of the platey ones (TJ has 4, so probably dimorphic), and fill the rest of my slots with the gemstoney ones since dear Shinki TJ has a lot of those there's gonna be SOMETHING up.

This feels like the first release in ages! So many eggs, but I've only been semi-active for a few weeks so I'm glad to have something to get me engaged again. biggrin.gif

Of course, it's the day my laptop is having issues but oh well...

Posted by: BethFroggy Mar 28 2015, 12:52 PM
I fail, can't even catch one much less 12! *headdesk* I'm about to give up!

Posted by: FluffyPillow Mar 28 2015, 12:52 PM
I had a feeling I was going to be somewhat-egglocked should there be a release (plus the empty biomes was a clue xd.png) rolleyes.gif The eggs looks very pretty! :3 Thank you TJ and spriters! happy.gif *goes to catch some eggs*

Posted by: Syiren Mar 28 2015, 12:52 PM
Wait, a new release is now?! Oh crud! Aw man! Figures when I'm pretty much scroll-locked. sad.gif I have room for three eggs. Hopefully I can snag one of each.

Posted by: MedievalMystic Mar 28 2015, 12:52 PM
I need one more Plate egg to give me 3 pairs of each of the Plate/Gemstone. I'll grab one Puddle and hope I can get more later on...I prefer the Plate/Gemstone eggs because they're so unique and different. Glad to see some unusual eggs popping up... smile.gif

5/6 of those so far. Then I think I'll get a plated one too (am I the only one that thought that one looked like a leaf?)

Now, it's my boyfriend's turn to hunt! tongue.gif
I'm a bad girlfriend and didn't lend the computer until I had my eggslots filled D:

Posted by: shadowfighter Mar 28 2015, 12:56 PM
Finally caught the last egg I needed! Now I just have to wait 27 hours till I'm able to catch 3 more...

Posted by: Tecca Mar 28 2015, 12:57 PM
Five available egg slots I chose to fill with
1 Condensation
1 Plate
3 Gemstones
since the Gemstones are probably different forms and/or rare. I hope I made the right choice.

Posted by: quinney Mar 28 2015, 12:57 PM
I got a blue stripey one...

Jeeeze! All that clicking and all I have to show for it is one Gem and one Plate.

Posted by: Tecca Mar 28 2015, 01:06 PM
I have a feeling the Gemstones will be rare. Most breeds that are related to a rare or valued substance end up being rare...Silver/Gold of course, and Copper (has been used for jewelry and currency for thousands of years). The Pyralspites are Garnets, and just like in real life the red Garnet variety is more common than other colors. Even the Two-Headed Lindwurm (Opals) were rare for many months after their release.

Posted by: Lurhstaap Mar 28 2015, 01:07 PM
Not impossible. I've caught three. biggrin.gif It's definitely not -easy- but it's possible if you persist... and are lucky enough to have fast Internet like I do. It's people with bad Internet I really feel for. sad.gif

Posted by: Nectaris Mar 28 2015, 01:07 PM
Three plates, two puddles, and a gemstone one. Need to wait for the cooldown to end to get rid of the extra plate. I have a feeling I will need another gemstone.

Posted by: Dimar Mar 28 2015, 01:07 PM
Oh wow, I actually caught a pair of condensations and a pair of plateds on my first drop. Now I just need to lock myself with the gemstones... I guess I'll see what I get and find the other varieties later.

Posted by: Naruhina_94 Mar 28 2015, 01:08 PM
Thanks for the March relase TJ! It's wonderful to have a relase each month. I'll take 2 per type, only one missing!

Posted by: Iside Mar 28 2015, 01:08 PM
I was hoping of 2 plates, 2 puddles and 3 gemstones but ended up locked with 3 plates 2 puddles and 2 gemstones instead. Well , I think I can't complain anyway biggrin.gif

I'm always a wreck on release days because I know if I don't snag the eggs immediately that same day there won't BE any to grab later when all the cave blockers are back in place. *sigh*

Glad I'm done and got all I needed. *wipes sweat*

Uhhhhhh. Welp. I just found out we had a release.

Posted by: Syiren Mar 28 2015, 01:10 PM
Well, slow internet = "sorry this egg has been taken by someone else" Guess I'm outta luck for this release. Oh, this day just keeps getting worse and worse. sad.gif

I AP'd three eggs that I didn't want to for a small chance of catching one of each new dragon. Sadly we don't know how rare these things will be. Something that could have helped out a lot when the Garnet trio were released. dry.gif

I apologize for coming off as grumpy, but if you had had the kind of day I have then it'd be perfectly understandable. sleep.gif;

Posted by: SilverGreeneye Mar 28 2015, 01:10 PM
Yay! I had begun to lose hope. Glad most of my eggs were incuhatchable.

Posted by: ObsessedWithCats Mar 28 2015, 01:11 PM
Gemstones will also probably be somewhat rarer, at least for a while, because many people are collecting two to five times as many gems as the others based on the number TJ has.

There was a tenfold increase in biome occupancy between my earlier post and me coming back now after revising for an hour ohmy.gif I've got one of each now though.

Posted by: shadowfighter Mar 28 2015, 01:11 PM
Well, even if I don't manage to get more than one of each breed, I've gotten one of each so far. I really can't wait to see what the puddles look like, I want to see if they'll look good with Mistletoes. And I can't wait to see what the Adult gem ones look like with Heartstealers.

ARRRGHHH WHY DID I CHOOSE TO SCROLL LOCK MYSELF YESTERDAY

I've been scroll-locked most of this past week and most of my red's are on cooldown. It would have been helpful if we had known about the release. Right now it's impossible for me to snag even one new egg because of my slow connection.

Having to ditch three eggs just to try and catch one of each didn't help either. dry.gif

I noticed that at the 2:00 mark, the site froze and just wouldn't move. It was almost 2 minutes after 2 when it finally started to move for me again and I have a really fast computer... Doesn't look like this will be an easy release.. I found it easier to snag the eggs at the 5 minute mark..

QUOTE (Tecca @ Mar 28 2015, 07:06 PM)
I have a feeling the Gemstones will be rare.

They will be, because they have "gemstones" in their description, therefore people think "oh no, everybody will assume they will be rare, therefore everybody will hoard them, therefore they will really become rare, therefore I have to hoard them NOW!"
(Ummm yes, "people" includes me...)

It's a self-fullfilling prophecy, and there's nothing we can do to stop it.

Additionally, they look like they will have three colors or something (or even more unless there is dimorphism for both hatchlings and adults), so everybody needs even more of those than of the other two breeds.
They will be the new Pyralspites.


And now that I've written all this, they HAVE TO end up being ultra-common to prove me wrong! cool.gif
(But shhh, don't tell them my evil plan!)

I'm liking the look of the new eggs! managed to snag two of the gems and plated, and three of the striped.

The striped egg for some reason looks familiar, but I can't think of any dragon I might've seen that goes with it… It's probably just in my head, but that makes me eager to see the adults even more!

Posted by: pinkgothic Mar 28 2015, 02:06 PM
Eee, awesome, new dragons! biggrin.gif Got two of each, except for the plated, of which I got three - which is perfect, since it's the plated ones I'm most curious about. I don't recognise any of the eggs from the Completed List, but I've always been terrible at remembering any concept's eggs. happy.gif Can't wait to see what these grow into!

Hmm...

Condensation dragon has no dimorphism, I guess (which is great, that makes it easy to use them in spirals biggrin.gif)!

Plated dragon has dimorphism, or an alt. I'm guessing dimorphism. happy.gif

Encrusted dragon... I'm having some trouble finding a theory there. I'd say alt and dimorphism, but there are nine eggs, not eight. Perhaps they're akin to stripes? Dimorphism in the adults, none in the hatchling, and three breed-only variants? That would work out.

Let the rampant speculation begin. biggrin.gif (Well, okay, it's already begun. I just wanted to say that. xd.png)

Thank you, TJ, and spriters!

I have two gems, two puddles, and one plated. I'll grab a second plated when my red hatches. I can't drop the mint as it's part of a lineage project.

Welp, I'm locked on eggs now, 5 gems and 1 plated, that I'm gonna toss asap.

Also is it just me or are the drops not only lasting a loooong time but are gems now the only drop in Jungles?

Is it a tempt change to make the Gems more accessible or is it permanent making any Plates caught from the Jungle rarer?

Not sure about the 'Cookie dough' eggs (love that nickname xd.png) as I haven't caught one yet, but from what I can tell the striped ones are after the Actual Stripe dragon and before the Terrae's and the plates are between the Black Tips and the Falconiforms. According to my scroll anyway.

Also, I was looking at the codes and I saw an egg with the phrase 'uMaD' in it. I knew these eggs were trolls! xd.png

Plates is falling between Coastal Wyvern and Dark Green for me, Gem is after Frosbite but before Geode (it's probably going to be literally Gemstone Dragon xd.png), and Condensation is way down between Stripes and Suncrowns.

Yes, I caught one of each (finally!)after chucking eggs into the AP.


EDIT: Changed the name of the Yellow Crowns to their breed sort name.

I'm liking the look of the new eggs! managed to snag two of the gems and plated, and three of the striped.

The striped egg for some reason looks familiar, but I can't think of any dragon I might've seen that goes with it… It's probably just in my head, but that makes me eager to see the adults even more!

The stripe egg looks a bit like blue banded eggs, just with a different color. So far I only managed to get one of the new dragons (I am egg locked now)

Posted by: zaverxi Mar 28 2015, 02:31 PM
I think it's safe to say the gems are NOT going to be rare, considering they stuck around long after the 5 minute drops ended. Having eggs still around at XX:X4 from the 5 minute drop is a good enough sign of such.

Also am I the only one who feels sorry for the mothers who lay those gemstone eggs? xd.png That must be pretty painful to get those bumps out.

Also the plated egg reminds me of Attack on Titan with the colors and the diagonal lines ahaha

Maybe the eggs are laid really soft, and the mothers roll them in gemstones to give them some added protection/hatchling food/whatever eggs do with shiny rocks

Posted by: TehUltimateMage Mar 28 2015, 02:40 PM
In regards to breed names again, it's safe to say that the Condensation one would be between stripes and sun --- something starting with Sub-? Substance, Sublimation, Sub-temperate...

Gemstones is going to be Gem- something, at least. No idea what Plates might be called xd.png

So, if

2 eggs: no dimorphism
3 eggs: dimorpishm on adults only
4 eggs: dimorphism on both hatchlings AND adults

...then what does 9 eggs mean? O_O
Multiple colorations AND dimorphism?

Possibly, but not necessarily.

TJ's biggest troll move would be to have tons of gemstones on the front page but in the end just have them be multiples of the same sprite. xd.png

April fools is right around the corner, after all.

Posted by: Nezbael Mar 28 2015, 02:58 PM
My guess is this:
  • Two colorations (probably red and greenish, like the gems?)
  • Dimorphism in both hatchlings and adults (meaning four hatchling sprites and four adult sprites)
  • Plus stage one hatchling probably has a neutral sprite (so hence nine eggs?)
We'll see in a few days, but that's how I'm gonna justify so many eggs in my head. xd.png


Nevermind, there are THREE colors, not two. xd.png So kitsune93 is probably right, there's prolly three colors, with dimorphism in adults.

Oh, that's right! Isn't that how the Dinos were introduced to the cave? What if these Gems are something similar?

Posted by: Niyaka Mar 28 2015, 03:01 PM
I think there will be three adults variations with dimorphism, and the other three eggs will be frozen as s2s.

For all the gemstones are shiny and potentially alt-full, the green on the plated leafy ones is the best colour ever :3

How long will they keep being the only things dropping? 24 hours? If so I'll be able to pick up 2 more, and I'm dithering on whether to go for 3 gems, 2 plates, 1 drippy, or 4 gems, 1 plate, 1 drippy.

I really like all the eggs, but I must say that I really LOVE the Gemstone and Plate egg. I like that these eggs are so unusual. I hope more unique eggs like those will be released. I enjoy the eggs almost as much as I enjoy the dragons. I really wish sometimes that there was a way to keep eggs on our scrolls.

Hmm. Either the plated ones are like opals, and have biome-specific colors, or they're dimorphic with only one color.

But yes, seems like we're looking at 3 variants of the gems, without dimorphic hatchlings.

Oh really? Good to know, thanks for that ^^
Yeah the Gems are easiest to catch, but personally I was kind of torn between getting more of them just in case and getting a pair of each. After the Pyralspites I'm just paranoid like that.

For all the gemstones are shiny and potentially alt-full, the green on the plated leafy ones is the best colour ever :3

How long will they keep being the only things dropping? 24 hours? If so I'll be able to pick up 2 more, and I'm dithering on whether to go for 3 gems, 2 plates, 1 drippy, or 4 gems, 1 plate, 1 drippy.

Regulars are already very slowly beginning to mix in. I saw a stray CB horse ('strange markings') somewhere in the middle of the drops not long ago, so the exclusive time is already over, even if it's not entirely obvious. smile.gif

Posted by: Syphoneira Mar 28 2015, 03:34 PM
THANK YOU, TJ!

Considering how busy you've been, this is amazing as well as wonderful!

Now, as long as these are common enough that we can load up on them over time, we'll be happy for weeks, lol.


More generally, I slept though the first part of this, and the hourly lag froze me on one egg for ages, making me nervous it was just going to be like that through most of the drops, but via frantic refreshing I wound up with 3 of the gem ones, 2 plated and one striped, so I'm pretty happy.

I have an egg I need for a lineage which took me ages to breed which hatches in 6 hours, so I'll hope to catch another striped one later.

But boy, this is fun! smile.gif

Posted by: almne Mar 28 2015, 03:38 PM
Oooh, imagine if the gems are like stripes? You get, I don't know, diamonds out of the caves, but they can produce sapphires, rubies, and emeralds depending on what you breed them with.

Of course if all the colors are in the cave I foresee a whole heaping pile of trades for the right colors, or whatever the difference is.

Two hours, maybe, but I also haven't seen another regular since that stray CB horse. Granted, I'm not hunting now and just checking to see how they're dropping, so I might be missing the stray regulars, but I definitely don't think it's anything to worry about.

Edit: Just saw a storm whiz by. So I guess it wasn't just a complete fluke. smile.gif Still nothing to worry about, I think.

This is actually pretty inconvenient timing for me but I don't even care, IT'S A RELEASE YEEESSS

This is random, but I'm kind of hoping that as the Gemstones hatch, the gems on them start to slowly fall off (kind of like the snow on the Winter Magi eggs).

I was waiting for it for three days and then, when it came, I wasn't at home, so I don't have any of those and cave is empty. biggrin.gif

I might be wrong on this but it looks like the gemstone one has at least 5 alts sense theres 9 eggs.

Oh hey, wasn't expecting a release this month considering April starts in 4 days.
Eggs look so pretty! Promising start to the lines.
So... judging by the number of eggs TJ has, one non-dimorphic, one dimorphic, and one dimorphic with an alt form?

Posted by: Olimar Mar 28 2015, 04:00 PM
... So that's where all the eggs have gone! laugh.gif

I'll be lucky if I manage to snatch one, seeing as how there are so many excited collectors stalking the biomes at the moment. Plus, I gotta wait for these last four eggs of mine to hatch... dang.

Can't wait to see everyone's hatchlings, though!

Well, 10 minutes and got 2 each of puddle and plate and 1 gem, gotta wait for a couple eggs to hatch before I can get more gems but luckily they only need 3 hours. Guess it's a good thing I've gotten a bit lazy over here or I'd be abandoning things. xd.png

Thanks for putting the warning out!

New eggs seem to be clearing out of two of the fansites I have running, but I'm still seeing some in the highest View-rate one I have up - AOND...

I have mine (as always) in Daily Dragon Fix for a gentle few Clicks and Unique Views for a good start and am still watching them closely, even then, although there's no way they could get Sick there.

And once they go into Silvi's, I'll be watching them like a hawk, even though new eggs are usually perfectly safe there and I generally enter mine there right away.

The View rates can go up so much during Releases, though!

It's best to be safe, I usually put my eggs in a hatchery after at least 12 hrs have passed and even with incubating, they all hatched on time and the egglock never lasted longer then necessary. ;3

Depends on what site (or sites) you're using, usually.

Incubate doesn't actually affect the timer as far as sickness is concerned, so if you're using a time sensitive site (like EATW) it's actually less safe incubated - it gets sick like it's 7 days but the site gives it more views like it's 6 days.

Posted by: Kovia Mar 28 2015, 04:31 PM
I usually just wait 24 hours (so 5 days left after incubate) then put my eggs in EATW, and they're usually just fine. If they seem to be getting more views than usual I just take them out when I'm not at the computer. Only times I usually have a problem is if the egg gets tagged as ER when it's actually still 4d1h (EATW has a bad habit of doing that).

Posted by: almne Mar 28 2015, 04:32 PM
The eggs in the ER at AOND are TJs. They're all at the 3 day mark, so there's no way they're anybody else's.

In the ordinary daycare part, I've only seen a very small amount of new eggs.

I think the timers are read half an hour ahead by all hatcheries - I know I can usually put AoND's ER on 4d1h eggs if it's actually just half an hour to go. It's more of a problem with EATW than other sites because its ER is integrated.

Ok, good!

I usually just run the small Viewer on the AOND entry page, since I'm generally running several other fansites at the same time, so I'm just seeing a mix of a random 150 eggs, not the full page with separate everything, except when cleaning.

That often happens during new releases; all biomes except the ones that drop the new eggs will empty out until the release ends.
You should see the new eggs in the forest and jungle during the 5-minute drops (whenever the clock at the top of the page reads #:#0 or #:#5)

Nah, he just sets them to require way more views than normal eggs. They still crack like everyone else's, they just take a long time to do so.

Managed to catch 3 of the thick-plates-eggs and one gemstone egg up to now. Now trying to get one of the condensation eggs.

Anyhow, I hope all these eggs will not be rares, especially the gemstone ones, people really are taking a shine for them. I can't wait until I'm unlocked so I can join the hunt - really like the look of the hardplate ones. smile.gif

Wow! That was killer lag on the hour, but I managed to wait it out and grab a scroll full of eggs.

I have one plated, two puddles and 4 gemstones.

Thanks, TJ, for the release. I was lucky with the timing because I've been away and my scroll was empty. smile.gif

Interesting to speculate about the gemstones. I hope all three of these will stay fairly easy to catch since there are too many for me to get my scroll goal filled in one batch of eggs. I wish there were some way to know which would be easiest to catch later. I usually seem to get it wrong.

Actually, the hardplate ones look like they drop least, the condensation and gemstones are abundant in their biomes. But since gemstone = shiny, they seem to be the ones most talked about.

You're not going to find anything except in Forest or Jungle. And you have to be right on the 5 minute mark, refreshing like mad, to see anything.

*waits impatiently for TJ's to hatch*

Also, I wonder if the plated ones are dimorphic, or if they have two color variants as well? Makes me think of the opals since the plated eggs are available in two different biomes.

Posted by: KingSpinosaurus Mar 28 2015, 05:33 PM
I've got one of each eggs up until now,but I still want to take some more of each ^^

Ah new release time! Time to watch everyone who complained about not having a release now complain that they can't catch anything!

Thanks for the release TJ. Patiently clicking through the five minute drops while my husband makes dinner - So far I have a plate and a gem to show for it!

Hoping the gemstones are birthstone dragons that change every month so we don't have to collect a buttload of them right now!

I forgot to thank everyone for the release! Thank you, TJ and artists! Here's hoping they don't magically disappear once the initial release is over.

Ooh, I'm picturing the beautiful even or stairstep lineages you could create with that.

While that would be cool, doubtful since if there were 12 of them then TJ would have more than 9.

I'm expecting that the adult gems will just have different colored gems on their bodies. No telling what will make the different forms appear since they're all from the same biome, might just be random.

...Or maybe he's just being a troll and they're completely normal. laugh.gif

My view on the gemstone dragons:
there are three color variations: green, blue, red (just like on the shell).
The hatchies don't have dimorphism, so TJ has one of each (3) but the adults do, so he has three pairs (6). Six plus three gives nine, and that's the number of eggs he has smile.gif

What? Ooooohhhh!~ Pretty babies! Thanks TJ! I really wanted that new release!

Posted by: Twimm Mar 28 2015, 05:46 PM
how long are these eggs dropping for, and are they dropping in all biomes, or just the forest and jungle?

I'm having so much trouble catching even one sleep.gif

This is like the first time I ever asked myself this question - does anyone know who makes the banner art above the new eggs on the first post? xd.png The gemstone egg artwork is sooo cool. Reminds me of candy - or someone said, an M&M cookie.

Someone should stick the egg artwork in the encyclopedia *winkwinknudgenudge*

I missed the beginning of the drop, but when I first saw TJ's post at 2:45 EST, there were only 9 gem eggs. I wondered what all the talk about 12 eggs was about.

You know TJ is famous for misdirecting us with the number of eggs. I think he gets a kick out of the speculation on the new egg topics. All we can do is wait and see.

I like your theory, more colour = more fun and more awesome lineages to work with. smile.gif I just hope they won't take the Pyralsprite route on this one. I mean Pyropes are awesome, but the other two are insanely hard to catch and this (in my opinion) just sucks out all the fun out of a (sub)species.

Good heavens, lost my manners somewhere in all the excitement!

Thank you SO much to TJ, Spriters and Mods and anyone else I may have missed for this wonderful Release!

I wouldn't call him "famous" for it. It's only ever happened one other time in my four-and-a-half years on DC, where the Pyralspites accidentally had three eggs instead of two. This is the only other time it's happened.

Since they share the same egg and biome, pretty sure they won't turn out like the Pyralspites.
If there are 3 forms then hopefully the forms will just be random, since I think Pyralspites and Coppers are the only other ones with 3 forms and both of those are based off biome.

OMG, never thought of that possibility, lol.

But then at least we'd have pairs, lol.

I was sorta wondering what was going to happen Influencing mine, probably wind up with 2 females of the same colour and one male of a different, lol.

Posted by: skyprotecter Mar 28 2015, 06:01 PM
I am glad I didn't have any other eggs! they vanish faster than rares!
I was about to give up on getting a puddle! then I somehow managed to click one in time
I slightly panicked when I saw all the biomes empty. I thought something was broke, then I saw the release and went to the forest and jungle

I wonder if the plated is two headed? no idea what makes me think that...

Thank the Lord for these new releases! Things were admittedly getting quite stale on DC for me. Thanks so much DC team!

I'm amazed at how quickly I managed to catch 2 each of the new breeds (and an extra gemstone). Hopefully my luck lasts as I stock up for goal numbers!

Thanks to a rather large hourly drop, I'm locked at a pair of each! Thank you TJ and spriters for the beautiful eggs.

Also! Hunting tip:

If you're trying to get a certain number of each (for example, two) fill up all your slots except two with AP eggs. Hunt only for one egg and once you catch your two, abandon AP eggs to free up slots for the next thing you want to catch.

Happy hunting everyone!

Edited to add: So say I have shinies to breed for trade fodder. In people's experience, how long should I wait after a release to breed them? Obviously I can't breed tomorrow when they are available to breed, but is Monday too soon if I'm going to ask for Pyralspite?

The only problem with that is that while rubies and sapphires are both corundum stones, just in different colors, emerald is a green beryl. So I'll be really curious to see how they tie those together if that's what's going on here.

I dropped a ND project to empty all 6 slots. Got two of each and influenced. We'll see what happens...

Here's what I did.

1. Went to the biome page

2. Hovered my pointer over the egg I wanted to get (left, middle, or right? I went for right)

3. Hit F5 and clicked immediately upon reload

It's not guaranteed, and if you're on a really slow connection it's really not guaranteed, but after several unsuccessful attempts I came to the conclusion that I was never going to get an egg upon initial page load.

Hope this helps someone.

That's what I do when a new release comes. It does increase the chances. It's amazing how much time moving your mouse/cruiser eats up compared to if it's already hovering over the egg.

I think left or right are the better ones.
I almost never get mine when I go for the middle. Guess there are just too many people trying the middle.

And of course you have to be careful that you don't grab the wrong egg laugh.gif

Posted by: zaverxi Mar 28 2015, 06:26 PM
Lol the only reason I was able to fill up on eggs right away was because I was one of only about 3 dozen people who were in the biomes today. xd.png It took most of the userbase by surprise, I think. I quickly ditched a few eggs and then grabbed five immediately. 4 hours later, grabbed my sixth because people caught on.

Only have two Derguns, alas, because I had an egg I couldn't get rid of that won't hatch until tomorrow. Oh well.

I've manage 3, two with the thick plates and one gemstone, but am scroll-locked until later today. Thought the 12 noon mark or midnight for cavetime would be the most likely, so I went and did other things, missing the start of the drop.

That's how I do it, as well. I'd add: Always do a fast double- or triple-click. Singles don't get through, at least not for me.

With all that in place I manage very well. (I have quite a fast connection, though. But without those steps, my catching is rather bad.)

Regarding the discussion about TJ's eggs not hatching yet, I'm guessing that TJ probably doesn't want his eggs to hatch too early, before people have had a chance to see them?

Or to give away the appearance of the hatchies too soon?

So he'll probably allow them to hatch when he figures it's a good time based on considerations like that?

A lot of people have probably no idea we have a New Release yet, because they've just quit checking, so could be plenty more incoming, if they have any way to find out or do think to check before the Easter Event.

In previous releases the eggs had already hatched by now. I think there just haven't been as many people clicking on the new eggs to get them to hatch quickly.

Posted by: SkylerFarrier Mar 28 2015, 06:45 PM
Two questions - how on Earth do people have them in hatcheries listed as 4d or less already?

And I wonder about the quantity of eggs linked in TJ's post... is that a sort of ratio or something?

Here's what I did.

1. Went to the biome page

2. Hovered my pointer over the egg I wanted to get (left, middle, or right? I went for right)

3. Hit F5 and clicked immediately upon reload

It's not guaranteed, and if you're on a really slow connection it's really not guaranteed, but after several unsuccessful attempts I came to the conclusion that I was never going to get an egg upon initial page load.

Hope this helps someone.

I do the same with step 1 & two but I tend to have the Reload-every add-on set for 1 or 2 second refreshing times and plop my left pinky on ctrl so each click opens in a new tab.

Sometimes it works and I'll catch 2 or 3 eggs and some times I get a whole slew of "Sorry this egg is someone elses" tabs xd.png

I'll be so ninja.gif ed... xd.png

The ER eggs are TJs and TJ always has one of each sprite, so with dimorphism and a Frozen, 3 per set. smile.gif

Posted by: Lantean_Pegasus Mar 28 2015, 06:48 PM
For the last few releases that I saw, TJ's eggs always started out with 4 days and less, and still took about half a day to hatch. Maybe that's a side effect of the mega-incubate, or maybe he likes to keep up the suspense for at least a little time. wink.gif

And don't forget to click all of TJ's eggs ! The more clicks they have, the earlier they'll gender ! And we can't wait to see that, right ? (Right now their number of clicks is really pitiful, between 4 and 60. sad.gif )

Just looked at them all, and wow his plate eggs aren't getting much love. One of them only had 4 clicks!

Posted by: TehUltimateMage Mar 28 2015, 06:50 PM
I remember the gemstones being harder to get earlier today, closer to the release time, until they became abundant about three hours later. I guess we can just chalk that up to them being more popular. xd.png

So happy to see a new release. Thanks TJ and spriters.

Even arriving late to the party I was able to egg lock myself with three gems, and two each of the others.

Those eggs in the ERs are TJ's eggs you see on the main page. smile.gif They're always less time because usually the eggs hatch the first day of a release to show people what the babies look like. biggrin.gif

And usually, TJ has eggs shown for how many different types of dragons there are for any given type of egg. For instance, the two eggs for the striped ones means there is one hatchling sprite and one adult sprite. TJ always freezes one hatchling.

Four, like shown with the plated eggs, means there's two hatchling sprites, usually dimorphic, and two adult sprites, also dimorphic. (Dimorphic means male and female)

Nine, like the gems, means there's two or more alts. biggrin.gif In this case, there's likely to be 3 different hatchling sprites, and two each male and female, dimorphic.

So!

Striped:

Hatchling
Adult

= 2 eggs


Plated:

Female Hatchling,
Male Hatchling,
Male Adult,
Female Adult

=4 eggs


Gem:

Hatchling color 1,
Hatchling color 2,
Hatchling color 3,
Female Adult color 1,
Male Adult color 1,
Female Adult color 2,
Male Adult color 2,
Female Adult color 3,
Male Adult color 3

= 9 eggs total

I just had to do it.

I Earthquaked my scroll. It killed one of the condensation eggs, but the rest were unaffected. The last time I did that was for the Undines, and I got a couple of hatchies early. But no luck this time.

Am I right in thinking the dead egg will take up an egg slot for 12 hours before I can get another egg?

Check the forest and jungle during the 5-minute drops (whenever the clock at the top of the page reads #:#0 or #:#5). You might want to go to the biomes shortly before the clock rolls over since they get snapped up pretty quickly.

Eggs from the last release (Carmine and Fever) are dropping in the Jungle again. Not sure if this is intentional or a glitch, but use caution when clicking!

It's not a glitch. Normal biome eggs are slowly trickling back in because ratios are catching up. I saw one of the strange marking eggs around 4pm cave time in the forest when I was still hunting.

...Those weren't the last release. Pyralspites were. In fact, Carmines and Fevers weren't even released together.

Nit-picking aside, guess that means the ratios are starting to get down to normal. That didn't take very long...

Ah, thank you. I'd at first thought there were in the ER far more than he had listed in the announcement post.
And had forgotten that he froze hatchlings in addition to the adults, so that left only the gemstone-encrusted one that I'd been puzzling over.
This clears it up, thanks!

It's not easy, but keep trying. They tend to drop more anywhere between xx:50 - xx:10 of each hour, depending on how the ratios even out. I caught mine when they were dropping for a solid ten minutes.

Best to fog all of them for a couple of hours, sometimes sickness shows a little later - I had an egg I accidentally added to a clicksite right after breeding it, then took it down shortly after remembering I shouldn't and it got sick with a delay. Fogging is the safest way to absolutely prevent it from gaining any clicks.

I don't think so. They don't have near as many clicks or views as the other eggs do.

Could it be that we're not seeing cracks on the plated eggs because the plates are too thick to crack (meaning they have a different hatching sequence, like Papers)? That would be so cool. biggrin.gif

Well, I am very silly. I abandoned the extra Plated egg I had and went to replace it... only to go to the Forest and spastically click on more Plateds. I caught one, but luckily I just abandoned another that was off cooldown and have now reminded myself that I need a GEMSTONE.

Not my proudest moment there.

Who knows how many times I accidentally clicked on plated eggs, and was relieved to see that I failed to catch it.

Posted by: MessengerDragon Mar 28 2015, 08:18 PM
I failed to catch any plateds or gemstones. Only one stripey. I do believe the stripeys are only in the forest, and the gemstones in the jungles. I've seen plateds in both.

Posted by: Santa07 Mar 28 2015, 08:18 PM
The moisture egg is probably going to hatch soon!

Uhmmm...Is it just me,or did the cave just crash from so many peeps trying to nab the new eggs cause I suddenly got a HTTP 500 Internet Error stating "Most likely causes:
•The website is under maintenance.
•The website has a programming error." ???? huh.gif

You guys know the Cosmic Brownies that Little Debbie makes? My prediction is that TJ has made these "gemstone" dragons look like that to fool us into thinking that they were gemstones, but in reality they are Cosmic Brownie dragons!

Also, OOOOOOOH!

I believe the chance of success is less the newer the eggs are, so I doubt anyone would risk it.

I'm excited for this because yay, my first new release that isn't holiday-related, but I'm also a tad disappointed because I had a whole group of "gemstone" dragons planned out where each biome had a different gem and rarity... I guess I will scratch that idea

'S it just me or does it seem like the Forest and Jungle are being COMPLETELY emptied BEFORE a minute has even half passed cause I JUST tried to nab one and I got only two attempts at snagging a plate when the time hit 9:40 on the DOT and got the "somebody else has already grabbed this one." both of those times? sleep.gif

It took me about 30 minutes to get my first Gem egg, then about...hour, two...before I finally got one of the others. I'm egglocked now so haven't even gotten a leaf Plated egg. :\ Don't worry, you'll get them! I nearly raged quit several times myself.

It usually depends on how fast your computer is, how fast your internet is, and of course, how fast you click. Make sure you sync your computer time with internet time, and start refreshing exactly at each :05 drop. It's been pretty easy for me. Good luck! You'll get yours eventually laugh.gif

I always read 'condensation' as 'condescending'.

Hmm, I'm not sure if we've had a situation like this before? So far we've only had dragons with only one variation of bred alts. These could potentially end up like Nebs but Neb alts are defined by gender and there's three variations, so I doubt it's that.

Maybe there's a difference in gender and then the third is a bred alt? /slaps myself

Posted by: DovahInAhrkZoriik Mar 28 2015, 08:51 PM

My guess is there are three gemstone colours, a hatchie and two adult genders of each.

The 5 min ones aren't very long, they barely last a minute before everything gets snagged, the hourly drops last longer but there's also the hourly lag and more players so it's actually harder to hunt than the 5 min drops, in my opinion.

I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOO glad I decided to take a peek at DC instead of just waiting until 3am EST (midnight Neopian Standard Time) to hop on the computer to do my Neo dailies and check the goings on of DC otherwise I probably would've TOTALLY missed this release...only thing that would've made this new release even BETTER is if it had happened March 23rd cause it was my 40th by.*ducks and blushes*

Happy birthday ^^

Mine is may, so these are a little early, haha

Well, I got two plated (gendered a pair), two gemstones (gendered a pair), and one seaweed one or whatever their name is :3 also incubated three of them (it only now occurred to me that I should've incubated one of each >~<)

I was in NYC all day and decided to check up and upon seeing the empty biomes and oodles of people in the forest and jungle checked the forum, soooo glad I did!

Posted by: Syphoneira Mar 28 2015, 09:29 PM
Well, my other egg hatched and I was hoping for another condensed stripey guy (Hatchies do look Eastern!) to make a pair of each, but wound up with another Plate - hope these will all be common, SO pretty so far!

Thank you so much, spriters - I can't wait to see plate babies and all of the adults!


Edit: happy B-day, Shin'a'in! smile.gif

The 5 min ones aren't very long, they barely last a minute before everything gets snagged, the hourly drops last longer but there's also the hourly lag and more players so it's actually harder to hunt than the 5 min drops, in my opinion.

I see. smile.gif And for how many days does this last? I have 3 eggs that hatch tomorow in 19 hours, and I still need to catch myself the two other species. :X

It's usually 3 days if I'm not mistaken, right?

Congratulations to Odeen, JOTB, and all other additional spriters yet unrevealed! I can't wait to see your new creations!

And now if you'll pardon me I have to go bury myself in a pile of those gemstone hatchlings. xd.png They are SO CUTE. They look much more like actual babies than most S1 hatchlings-- the big round heads tapering down to the snubbed snouts, the sweet eager/hesitant posture, the little upcurved tails. I'm curious to see whether they end up as more cute/babyish-looking adults or whether it's just the hatchlings looking their age. Either way I think I'm going to need an army of frozen ones to cuddle. ^.^

I'm excited to see how the condensation hatchlings grow, too! So they can both swim and glide, like flying fish, but they're Forest rather than Coast dragons so I'm imagining them in rivers and tree canopies... something small and lithe and fringed and camouflaged? Lots of potential.

Hmm, it dropped at 1pm on a saturday? What happened to midnight- midnight? Is it still 24 hour drops or does it end at midnight?

Um, it hasn't been midnight for a REGULAR release in about two years. When TJ introduced regular updates where he announced the days ahead of time, they were set to 1pm EST on a Saturday so that everyone could have a chance at them. 1pm Saturday means even people all the way east like Australia and Japan etc could still at least try to grab them since it'd be Sunday for them and thus normally also a day off. And 1pm so people in Europe can grab them in their evenings. Far as I can tell, it's mainly just Middle East/parts of Russia/India that miss out because it's middle of the night for them, but I'm not sure how much of the playerbase is from there. Pretty sure the majority are Americans, Europeans, and Asians, correct me if I'm wrong though!

??? until the regular eggs start dropping, of late that has happened sooner than later, someone above said other eggs are dropping so ( though I see still no eggs in the other biomes) as far as I know there hasn't been a long release drop since there was a near riot because a new release back then went for DAYS and DAYS with just one dragon, ( sorry my remebery can't name the dragon I just remember how frustrating it was ) .

Only Valentines and Christmas are 3 day solid drop ,Halloween lasts only one day

I've been thinking the plates will be rare too. They were the hardest for me to catch. Now I am not so sure since the lovely gems have hatched. I'm going to definitely try for more blue ones since I see some sparkle going on in their scales.

If you sort dragons by breed on your scroll, the gemstone one is between ember and geode, so I can predict its name will be Gemstone or Gem dragon. The plated one is between Cassare and Dark Green and the condensation puddle one is between striped and sunset, but I can't think of possible names for them

No matter what you do it will be wrong. At least it always is for me. I always guess wrong, or more accurately just manage to catch the most of the ones that will stay easy to catch, before their rarity becomes apparent.

It seemed to me that I was seeing many more of the plated ones when I was hunting, but I only caught one of them, so I could be wrong. I caught two of the puddle and 4 gemstones.

Many gathered in the Jungle, waiting behind the clearly marked posts. Some were cut, bruised, and panting, but happily and carefully shoved eggs into their saddle bags and satchels. Others were kneeling by the posts and glaring at others furiously, looking ready to hurt the other.

A trainer walked through the crowd, everyone bowing to him as he passed. He stood beside the post and pulled back his hood, revealing himself to be the highest of the highest, TJ. He waved to everyone and raised his hand.

Many scrambled to get a place by the post, holding their breath as they stared at TJ's hand. He looked down at the notches on his coattail and the moment his shadow went through the fifth one he swung his hand down.

Trainers dashed into the jungle, diving for the prize that was a new egg.

I'm not sure if the puddles are easterns or not. Sure, they've got the long body and such, but so do Water and Deep Seas, and these are pretty much water dragons. Hm. Guess we'll find out in 3 days!

The Plated seem to be (getting closer to) hatching one at a time...

Could this be a breed characteristic, that they have a hard time hatching because of the heavy plate covering the egg?

I don't think so, if that was true then TJ would have hinted it or included them in his post. So many variations would be more work for the Spriter, as well.

Plates hatched, so happy to see they look amazing, I got three of them (but one is up for trade, might have to change that.) They remind of Lightfoot from Land Before Time. Not sure why.
Edit: I think it's the long tails and lack of wings that's making them look dino-ish.

I believe that TJ would have more eggs if they breed different colors. It's how happened with coppers and undines, TJ always have all colors.

Blumespinne, you could transfer that egg back and forth with a friend and re-influence it when you get it back, or you can trade even with someone who hasn't influenced their gemstone egg. In the Site Discussion section, Trading topic, V2 thread, you could offer to trade for an non-influenced egg.

Several dragon keepers ran towards the pile, a young female reached her hands out towards a gem covered egg, only to have it snatched away from her. She kept trying, eventually failing as the remaining eggs were taken.

Oh well, I think I'm done for now. I have a stubborn shimmer who doesn't want to hatch and just got sick - and 2 of each new release. I was hoping that the shimmer would hatch so I could get one more gem but I had to fogged it. It's probably going to be unfogged hatched tomorrow. Then if these new ones were still dropping I'll try to catch another gem.

I was thinking about what happened me during all this. That moment that got me hype like crazy. Then I realized, I had a keyboard.
---------------------------------------------------------
The long tail of my scarf flew in the wind like a dragon's tail as I ran around. My head snapped around furiously, my eyes zipping around like lost bees.

"Plates. Gemstone! Ugh! Where are the-"

Then I saw it. A lone condensation egg. I couldn't believe my luck! I began to smile and dance a bit, but then I saw someone else begin to run over to it. I gasped and hopped onto the back of my whiptail dragon, affectionately named Whiplash Stripes, the one I brought in with me. I pointed to the egg and she flapped her wings immediately.

The moment we got close enough, I fell from her back. I pulled the little egg into my arms and pulled all my appendages in, protecting it from my careless tumbling. The only thing that stopped me was Whiplash's leg. I uncurled myself, gazing down at little striped egg in my arms. I beamed and stood up, carefully stuffing it into my saddle bag. I climbed onto Whiplash's back and she took off toward the coast, where I had my other dragons gathered. I chuckled darkly at the look on the other trainers face when I stole the little egg.

Forest and Jungle are the only ones with the new eggs. The others will have more eggs soon, like tomorrow most likely. Don't give up if the Forest or Jungle biome is empty. They will toss out a few eggs on each 5 minute mark and more on the hour, half hour and 15 minute mark.

*I lay down next to Warmly Light, my Ember Dragon*

After some checking, I can prolly tell that:

The Plates Dragons breed either start with a C or a D, but more than likely a C.

The Gemstone Dragons breed either start with an F or a G, but their name is probably Gemstone.

The Condensation Dragons breed prolly start with an S.

Don't take my word for it though, I'm not entirely sure.

I do not think they will have anything to do with Nessie at all anyways as they look more Asian in design, and goodness only knows we don't have enough of them, but I think they will definitely be classified as Water Dragons, I'm thinking something along the lines of Kohaku from Spirited Away.

If those stripey ones turn out to be eastern dragons I might die. I've wanted a true eastern that was relatively common for a long time.

The gem-covered hatchlings look super familiar but I can't place them and it's bugging me. I don't love them but I'm reserving judgement till I see the other stages.

The plated ones are pretty cute but I'm reserving judgement on them as well.

I wonder how the gemstone hatchlings' colors are determined. Is it random?

Posted by: NekoA Mar 28 2015, 11:38 PM
Got my 7 eggs! I have to wait to see the colors though. rolleyes.gif This is fun!

Posted by: OtomeKristinOtaku Mar 28 2015, 11:44 PM
The plate ones probably start with 'co' since my scroll sorts them between coastal waverunners and coppers. The gemstone ones sort between F-G, so I think it could be called Gemstone laugh.gif The stripey ones sort after stripes and before sunrises, so maybe the name is stripe related?

The stripey egg reminds me of Blue-bands xd.png

If those stripey ones turn out to be eastern dragons I might die. I've wanted a true eastern that was relatively common for a long time.

The gem-covered hatchlings look super familiar but I can't place them and it's bugging me. I don't love them but I'm reserving judgement till I see the other stages.

The plated ones are pretty cute but I'm reserving judgement on them as well.




There were both gemstone and birthstone dragons in Completed at one point a long time ago, but the suggestion by one commenter of them sounding familiar was given a resounding no, so these may never have been in the regular Completed threads.

So, are we intrigued or pulling our hair out with curiosity?

I have a Great Pyrenees beginning to shed his winter undercoat here, and requiring rather a lot of scratching massage (I could stuff my own Pillows) so can't tell if I'm losing hair myself without checking for ragged ends in the mirror, which would involve getting up.

So I'm leaving the answer for the student.

IS anyone NOT pulling their hair out in curiosity about these guys?

EDIT: Does anyone want a short story about their either crappy or awesome experience with this drop? I'll be happy to write them!

Oh you guys made me want to describe how I picture myself catching dragons xd.png

~~~~~

A small girl sits high in the trees, her eyes sharp. A Sweetling dances about her shoulders and she whispers, "Hush, Kaal..." Her eyes, narrowed to small slits, scan the forest floor. Suddenly, she spots her prize. Leaping lithely from one branch to another, she stops above the egg, covered in small gems, before crouching down. Another tamer appears and snatches the egg. The girl, named Finny, gives off a quiet, irritated sigh, leaping higher into the trees. A twig falls on the head of the egg thief who stole her prize and she giggles before disappearing into the leaves.

Finny gives Kaal a sad yet determined look and jerks her head towards the tree tops. The two get high enough in the trees to have their heads above the canopy. She puts two fingers in her mouth and gives a sharp whistle. A green Copper dragon, Vaknormard, appears and roars at her, and his voice fills her head, "To the jungle again?" She nods at him, jumping off of her tree. He swoops up under her and the three set off for the jungle once again.

Finnegan sits silently, leaves casting shadows over her face. She moves silently through the treetops again. Looking down, she spots a new egg, one not unlike the new eggs the great tamer TJ had described finding in his travels. She did not hesitate at all this time, dropping out of her tree like a rock, landing overtop of the egg and curling her body protectively around it as another hunter reaches for it. She grins mischievously at him as he huffs away. Her hands are damp from the egg, and she hugs it close.

A few more trips between the forest and jungle result in a hungry and whiny Kaal, but also a new clutch of eggs, two plated, two gem-covered, and one condensation-covered, wrapped securely in Finnegan's bag. She places them deep within her cave and all the dragons gather about. Three proud Red Dragons step forward, bending before the two gem eggs and one plated, and blow hot air over them. Yirtdosahqo, the leader, nods to Finnegan, then to her two followers, Strinwahdiihil and Sossilon, before walking back to the group's area of the cave.

Four Pink dragons dance to front of the group, two males, Silonuvsoqat and Soqatmey, and two females, Pogaansoqat and Soqatnolrah. One male and one female walk up to the plated eggs, as the other male and female walk to the gem eggs. They all walk in circles around the eggs, glowing faintly. They then all retreat to their part of the cave as well.

Finnegan bites her lip tosses at small rock at Soleykdogol, waking him from his nap. He sighs and lifts his mighty tail, slamming it hard onto the cave floor. Every anxious eye is on the eggs. None of them stir, and the whole cave lets out a collective sigh.

Of course, the Tinsel egg that's ready to hatch gets sick. dry.gif My Paper might actually hatch before at this rate, and it's got 6 hours to go. *dies*

I finally managed to catch one of each. I just need to wait for my other eggs to hatch before I can catch more (and for my Reds to come off their cooldowns. Hurry up, my small red army!)

Hmm, if the adult green Gems are as adorable as their s1 hatchies, then I might consider breeding them with Mints. Actually, I'll probably do that anyway while I build up my army of Mints and Gems.

Out of all the days to have a release, it had to be when I actually decided to go to sleep early. D:
Edit: Wow, all I need is another plated one so I'll have a pair. That was a suprisingly easy catch. laugh.gif

The gem ones are my favorite. I hope they're not too rare because I really want to hoard them. c:

Posted by: animetriplicate Mar 29 2015, 12:24 AM
Hm, for getting to this late, that was an oddly easy catch. I managed 2 stripes, 2 plates, and 3 gems over the course of two 5-min drops.

Posted by: Fiona BlueFire Mar 29 2015, 12:29 AM
Decisions, decisions... more eggs than egg slots.

I ended up deciding on 2 plates, 1 stripey one and 4 gem ones. I'm going to have to go back and hunt up at least one more stripey one to have a pair.

Thanks for the pretties, TJ. Congrats to the artists who sprited them. They're pretty and exciting.

I overdid it on the condensations eggs and caught 4.
Just abandoned two and got the 2 plated ones I wanted.
So now I have 3 gems 2 plated and the 2 condensations.
Would love to know which one I won't be seeing again for a long, long, time! laugh.gif

Just traded with someone to un-scrollock myself and I managed to get a condensation! I might get a second gemstone too.

Posted by: DarkDragonKingShamakan Mar 29 2015, 12:58 AM
This is how I imagine my egg hunting story for this round.


My name is Shamakan I am known to my enemies as the Dark Dragon King, as my signature dragon is an Avatar of Destruction know as Jalein Bekilip Darastrix. I have collected many dragons of many different breeds, I have at least one of every kind, save those who have become extinct in the wild and no longer breed in captivity. My goal is to one day have an army of dragons so large that when they take flight they will blot out the sun. Any how as I was visiting my cave this morn I saw I had received a letter from the Master Dragon Tamer TJ, it told of three new species of dragons that he had recently seen located in the Forest and Jungle areas.

I immediately summoned Jalien, retrieved my wooden sword, and then we made a beeline for the Forest, as our cave is located in a hidden cave on the side of one of the volcanoes it took us a while to arrive at first we saw nothing out of the ordinary save for the huge amount of rival tamers all apparently looking for the newly discovered dragons. I saw several working together but even the groups where distrusting and wary of each other, no one was willing to miss out on finding one or more of these new additions. With Jalein at my side we quickly began searching for the new arrivals.

We soon found a small pile of eggs that seemed to have had pools of water gathering on and around them, we waited to see if anyone else would make a move towards these eggs, and before we could so much as move towards the pile several tamers burst from the treeline tackling and punching each other to get to the eggs, before we knew it the pile had been decimated all the victorious tamers wore smug smiles as they stashed their new prizes in their saddle bags or backpacks. I decided to look elsewhere, I then stumbled upon another pile of eggs this one mixed with condensation eggs and plated ones, I took no chances this time Jalien and I rushed forward just ahead of a few other tamers, I was forced to fight for my prize, however I wasted no time with prolonged fights, I used my sword to great effect battering my opponents about the head and legs when the dust settled Jalien and I had acquired two new eggs one of each type in the pile. I quickly stowed them and moved on, determined that I should find the rest of my haul.

After a few minutes I came upon yet another small pile of eggs covered in condensation, I again wasted no time running in for one, however this time I was the one who took a beating, in the end I did indeed manage to grab one, but not with out several knocks to the head to show for it. Jalien then looked at me and said in my head "Maybe we should move to the Jungle, there might be easier prey there." I agreed, clamored onto his massive shoulders and we took to the skies winging towards the jungle.

Things there were no easier, in fact they were tougher, more tamers were here than in the forest it seemed, however the jungles could be deadly for those who knew not the safe paths and plants. I refused to land till we had discovered our quarry, this time we found a huge pile full of eggs encrusted with gems and more of the heavily plated ones, this time Jalien and I were ready for the massive onslaught of tamers, we however dove from the skies Jalien roaring and wreathing his head in flames which caused several tamers to duck to escape his fury,however many brave tamers took advantage of the distraction and ran in to begin hording eggs for themselves, I had room for just three more eggs in my bags, so I decided to grab one more plated and two of the gem eggs if I could, with much struggle we managed to fill our bags and again we took to the skies. "A rather nice haul if I do say so myself, a nice days work eh Jalien?"

"As you say master" Jalien replied as we landed at the mouth of our cave. My many dragons came to greet us and our new arrivals. I found the warmest safest place for the eggs and placed them together according to breed. Not long after four of my six pink dragon lead by the matriarch Selavra Darastrix, or Sel as we call her, came forth and began to bless the eggs they would hatch into three females and one male, my other two pinks were worn out from influencing two other dragons that had hatched just recently I would just have to trust to luck either that the uninfluenced would hatch male or that they would refrain from hatching till my other two had a chance to rest. Either way I need them to be male or else this was all for naught. I made a mental note to breed more pink dragons for just this reason.

When my troop of reds step forward to incubate the eggs I signaled them to hold off, not need to rush things without them all being influenced, the leader of the reds Charir Darastrix shrugged his massive wings and blew a gust of hot air out his nostrils, away from the eggs of course, and all of my dragons returned to their mated pairs. We all knew that we would just have to wait and see what happened, and when, I just prayed that my two tired pinks would recover soon...


Sorry its so long, but I felt it needed to be. tongue.gif

Posted by: FireWing12 Mar 29 2015, 01:29 AM
This story was requested by Ylvanne! I hope she likes it!
---------------------------------------------------------
Vanne traversed through the biomes, Dragon Army behind her. She had just found two new eggs, a Thunder and a Nebula. She had a feeling she would name it something with the word Oz and she was currently looking through the coast lines when she almost trampled by running trainers. She eventually got to one stop, a young girl who's hooded cloak, and scarf, had burn-marks in the shape of wings.

"What's going on?"

"The Highest Trainer, TJ, has discovered three new dragons! They're being found in the forest and the jungle only! Hurry up!"

And with that, the young girl jumped back onto the back on her Whiptail and sped off. Vanne stood with her mouth open. She had too many eggs and she surely didn't want to get rid of her newly caught ones. She hopped onto the back of one of her dragons and it took off toward anothers cave.

Vanne's boyfriend was tending to his dragons when she came in. He turned and smiled at her.

"Hey-"

"Canyouholdthisforme? Kthanks! Bye!"

Vanne handed a Blusang egg to him, kissed his cheek and left him standing there confused.

As she was flying toward the forest, she had a Red Dragon preform Incubate on her Black Tea egg. The egg fell apart, revealing a baby black tea. She seat it on the dragons back before jumping off and landing in the middle of the forest with a look of fury in her eyes.

Vanne began to jump and snatch at eggs, but she was always too late and someone else nabbed them. She saw a Condensation and barrel rolled for it, knocking the other trainer away as she rolled with the egg in her arms. She also donkey-kicked another person to get two gems together.

She put the eggs in her bag and flew back to her boyfriends. She sighed, falling into his arms.

"What happened?"

"I got all of the new eggs, except one of those plate dragons I saw."

Vanne sighed heavily and closed her eyes, but opened them again when she felt something warm and heavy fall into her lap. It was a plate egg. She smiled up at her boyfriend and threw her arms around his neck, kissing his cheeks over and over.

Missed the news that there was a drop until now. Chrome apparently hates the new site so can't catch anything on it. Thankfully there are other browsers. *snuggles Firefox*

Not so happy with the misclicks already. Hopefully I can at least get one of each before they become absolute rares.

Posted by: natli Mar 29 2015, 02:09 AM

And what's with the walls of text...?

Posted by: Jascuty Mar 29 2015, 02:17 AM
I got 3 gemstones, 1 condensation and 1 plate. I'm not worried about getting different coloured gemstones because there will probably be loads of people trading to get 1 of each colour.

Odeen told someone else who thought they remembered the Gemstones that it was impossible, so I'm guessing those were made in secret.

The plates feel vaguely familiar, though.

Some of the plates have gendered, looking even nicer and chunkier :3 I'll have room for a sixth egg in a few hours and I'm wondering whether to go 2:2:2 or whether to do ratios more like what TJ has unsure.gif

I couldn't resist... seeing the pretty hatchies I had to abandon two of my eggs so I could go and hunt for these lovelies - just snagged two gemstones during the 5-min drop, will be back to hunt for more tonight if the drop still lasts. Here's to hoping they'll be un- or commons! I also really like the look all the hatchies and am looking forward to seeing the adults.

A big thank you to all spriters and TJ and whoever else is involved too for organizing the event. smile.gif

Gosh, the lag is strong in this one...

Can't wait to see the adults. Three colours of gems!!!! That's just awesome, and I really hope the one with 'thick plates' will be a good mate for the Brutes! I've not yet found any that truly match them.

Great thanks to TJ and the awesome spriters!

Posted by: Lexadin Mar 29 2015, 03:17 AM
Despite the lag, I've actually quite easily managed to get 2 of each. Now considering the dimorphism of the gem one, I probably need some more of those.
Speaking of which.

Blue, Red and Green gems? Gen 3 remakes confirmed!
Ok I just had to.

I was busy all day Saturday with a family gathering, but thankfully I decided to check my scroll before going to bed. :)

I managed to catch two 'Gemstones', two 'Condensation' eggs, and one 'Plated', though now that I know the 'Gemstones' have color variants, when I'm unlocked I'll have to try to catch some more before they go the way of the Pyralspites.. :P

I know it's probably a bit early to discuss breeding xD but based on the 'Condensation' egg sprite I'm already considering pairing them with either Blue-Bandeds, Water Walkers, or Undines. ^-^

Posted by: MessengerDragon Mar 29 2015, 05:11 AM
Those plateds are similar to green two-headed lindwyrms in colour. Shame they can't breed together.

Um, it hasn't been midnight for a REGULAR release in about two years. When TJ introduced regular updates where he announced the days ahead of time, they were set to 1pm EST on a Saturday so that everyone could have a chance at them. 1pm Saturday means even people all the way east like Australia and Japan etc could still at least try to grab them since it'd be Sunday for them and thus normally also a day off. And 1pm so people in Europe can grab them in their evenings. Far as I can tell, it's mainly just Middle East/parts of Russia/India that miss out because it's middle of the night for them, but I'm not sure how much of the playerbase is from there. Pretty sure the majority are Americans, Europeans, and Asians, correct me if I'm wrong though!

Don't forget us Canadians that LURVE DC. biggrin.gif

I had a lot of trouble yesterday, but finally got it to work. Sometimes if you just hit save even though everything is faded out it will kick it into working. Sometimes you need a hard refresh. Sometimes it seems if I switch to one of the other custom sorts and then switch back that will help. And sometimes I just give up and come back later! laugh.gif

Hope there is time to get them still!

Oh I really like those hatchies, but the gemstones are my favorite, they are sooo cute!

Posted by: Jazeki Mar 29 2015, 06:22 AM
I was eh about the plated ones, but the gendered hatchies look nice. Although the female one either looks like she has either a beard or has pushed all of her hair to the side.

I hope the others gender soon.

Ooooh! The plated hatchlings look awesome! This might just turn out to become a new favourite breed.. wub.gif

Mine too! Seeing hatchlings, I am so happy I grabbed accidentaly three plated eggs, instead of two biggrin.gif

Posted by: maylin Mar 29 2015, 06:25 AM
How long will they be dropping?
I accidently grabbed a common, not sure if I should bite it to try to get it off scroll or wait the 5 hours.

Posted by: Harmsky Mar 29 2015, 06:37 AM
Have we figured out the rarity of them yet?

Posted by: natli Mar 29 2015, 06:41 AM
"It’s grown a forked spade at the end of its tail and long, tufted whiskers!"

...say what? o.o Is this another Eastern? Or something completely different?

The gendered plated guys look incredible. Wish the gemstones would gender

Never mind. Wow. That was unexpected

Posted by: Leidarendi Mar 29 2015, 06:43 AM
The eggs are great! Happy catching, everyone!

ohmy.gif The s2 of the encrusted dragon looks amazing on the Portal2 skin. So pretty! *drools*

Edit: The s2 of the condensation dragon is fantastic! Because it has bright bits on it, it looks a bit unfinished on the Portal2 skin, but I absolutely adore it on a light background. Awesome work, JOTB!

Posted by: Isuzu Mar 29 2015, 06:48 AM
Ok now both the Puddles and the Gems look Eastern-ish to me. *gets excited*

Oh, wow! Are they both Easterns? BLESS.

Posted by: Jazeki Mar 29 2015, 06:50 AM
I love the contrasting colors on the green gemstone. Can't wait to see what the other two colors will turn out to be. Maybe yellow/gold and another blue shade? I want the seaweed ones to gender too.

Edit: All of the gendered hatchies look amazing so far.

Posted by: stagazer_7 Mar 29 2015, 06:52 AM
Oh, the S2's look adorable, I love all of them! wub.gif Much Eastern love this release, I approve. :3

Posted by: maylin Mar 29 2015, 06:52 AM
WELP took a chance and bite the common I accidently picked up to try to make room.
It turned, so still have to wait 5 hours and hope the eggs are still dropping. v-v

Posted by: purplehaze Mar 29 2015, 06:54 AM
Oh my! I am loving all the hatchies, especially now that they have gendered. Good job JOTB, Odeen, and Lady Lyzar. Having seen your work in earlier releases I figured I would like these dragons, and I was right.

Thanks spriters and TJ for bringing us these babies and I can't wait to see what they look like all grown up.

With that said, I am just a wee bit disappointed that there are no new spriters for this batch.

Although a little late for the start of the party - I blame the switch from winter time to daylight saving time; an hour less sleep last night - I still managed the catch myself a pair of each biggrin.gif

I absolutely love the big green ones. I got the feeling I've seen them before in the request threats, but I can't remember what the adults looked like or what their name was unsure.gif

The plated s2 hathies are amazing, so detailed. I really like the look of the female. The gemstones are adorable, and I hope their eastern appearance means just that. Playing on my phone, so can't see the top hatchie very well, so will reserve thoughts on it until I get home tomorrow and can see it on my laptop screen.

Posted by: Pixel.G Mar 29 2015, 08:49 AM
The S2 puddle hatchie reminds me of a blue-ish version of the Heartstealing hatchie. laugh.gif
The gemstones are my favorite so far. I really hope they won't be so rare.
And lastly, the plated ones look amazing. I love how they have such a big build already. c:

The blue Gem Hatchies make me think of Solstice dragons, both in terms of color and the whiskers.

Part of me is betting it's based off scroll color, but the rational part is betting that it's random.

Puddle hatchies have a potential to turn into Eastern dragons, crosses my fingers in hope for this to come true, and to possible get all 3 gem colors.

Nope, always prefered the greyhound look rather than the slab o beef look myself. Those lovely little drippy ones are gorgemous!

And since we finally have a Release - please let's not be disappointed about ANY part of it. We have new eggs - I don't care who drew-painted-sprited them - they're all wonderful and you guys did a fantabbulous job! Thanks so much!


ETA: That being said, I have a Plate to swap for a Condensation.

Posted by: Wahya Mar 29 2015, 09:48 AM
I didn't even realize there was a release, due to issues with the layout I use (for the last few days it hasn't been showing up properly, and links aren't working). Time to post in the help thread I guess xP

Posted by: shadowfighter Mar 29 2015, 09:48 AM

Although I am glad we got new dragons, I'm not exactly attracted to any of the S2 hatchlings (didn't get to see the S1's). I can't wait to see the adults though smile.gif

I wonder if the gemstones will work like Nebulas, only finding out the color variation in S1 hatchies, instead of S2-s...

I can't wait for my eggs to hatch so I can get the Hardplates and Condensation eggs too. Being egglocked during a new release is haaard. tongue.gif

My theory is that it might be random, like Nebulas.

Just read the description of the Plates: This large hatchling is well-protected by its thick, scaly hide. It is pushy and aggressive toward other dragons. Lol, it's a little bully-dragon. xd.png

We don't know yet. We need to wait till people start to get hatchies. It can be like undines, just one color is CB and the others are bred or it can be like nebulas, you can get any color. We don't know yet.

Just woke up and - ooh hatchlings!
They're all awesome, puddles are really pretty, gems are just cute and the plates are reminding me more and more of the brutes. Something about the plates just says "big" (and I don't mean the sprites' literal size)
Can't wait to see the adults, very promising so far.

Gosh, you go to bed early one night and wake up to find you missed so much chatter in the cave. lol. To me being on the release threads is half the fun. biggrin.gif

I haven't seen the hatchies yet. I'm just hoping that the Gem eggs I caught hatch into different colors as the few comments I've read while scanning have confirmed that they do hatch into different colors. (yay!)


Posted by: inlaterdays Mar 29 2015, 10:19 AM
Thanks, guys! I managed to catch one of the plated eggs and I am hoping for some of the others too. smile.gif

All of the hatchies are really gorgeous!

Posted by: Ayelldee Mar 29 2015, 10:44 AM
The more I see that color of the Plates, the more I like it. Sure hope they grow up to be really attractive platters (har).

Am reserving judgement on the Gems, right now they're a little 'cute' for me. With that forked spade, are they going to mine their own gems?

LOVE the little Drippys - MUST HAVE MOREMOREMOREGimmee!

Thanks guys, to everyone. Thanks for this great Release (although that extra egg-slot would sure be a nice thing)!

ETA: Really pleased that all three new dragons are so very different - not only from each other, but from what we already have. Those little Drippies could be great-looking with Silvers.

Posted by: Slaskia Mar 29 2015, 11:48 AM
I will have another slot in a few hours, though now I'm torn on what to grab next.

Drippys for the obvious Eastern style?

Gems due to the variety of colors?

Plates due to the suspected rarity (though the fact they gendered before the others despite being last to hatch is surprising)

I'm leaning toward Gem...but I don't want to regret it!

Oh dear. Looks like it's pretty much unanimous that the Plateys are gonna be rare. Guess I better snag another one the next time I catch them dropping owo Last night I was egglocked at three Gemstones, one Condensation and one Plate. And a Blusang egg, which hatched so now I have one slot open. ohgodi'msonervous

Yay for more easterns tongue.gif
But I still like the plates most. Let's see what the adults will look like.
Two eggs are in the ER right now so I should be able to go hunting for more of the new breeds soon enough =)

Posted by: Areous Mar 29 2015, 12:02 PM
Waiting for my Hellfire egg to hatch in 2-3 hours, then I can hopefully grab another of the new eggs biggrin.gif

I wasn't sold on the S1 Plate hatchies, but I really like the S2 ones. They're all just so cute! I'm excited to see the adults ^^

Posted by: Phenri Mar 29 2015, 12:04 PM
Oh, i'm so excited now! The stripes looks kind'a like they could be easterns! :3

The details on those hatchies are great! Looking forward to seeing the adults! biggrin.gif

Once I get home from work (which will be when I have another egg-slot) - I'm going to get me one more Plate egg so that I can influence the pair to be male and female.

As for the others - I've 3 Gem eggs on the hopes that they're like Nebulas (can be any of the three colors) and will worry about Genders later once I see how they work for lack of a better term. The same goes for the puddle egg, see what gender I get then catch another.

Posted by: OtomeKristinOtaku Mar 29 2015, 12:10 PM
The matured hatchies look really cute! Strangely enough, the Plate males are in a more passive position than the Plate females. Perhaps these dragons will be matrilineal?

I will have another slot in a few hours, though now I'm torn on what to grab next.

Drippys for the obvious Eastern style?

Gems due to the variety of colors?

Plates due to the suspected rarity (though the fact they gendered before the others despite being last to hatch is surprising)

I'm leaning toward Gem...but I don't want to regret it!

I went for 2 of the plated, 3 of the gemstones and 2 of the steamy ones in my first go-round, based on the number of eggs for each breed.

If the gems do have differing rarities like the Pyralspites, I'd focus on them, just to make sure I could get all the varities while it's relatively easy.

Personally, I really love the little plates - concrete, anyone? - and am tempted to focus on them. However, I ignored the Blusangs in favor of Olives and Brimstones when they were released, so it might be wisest to divide evenly between all three breeds as collecting continues. unsure.gif

Eh, good luck? blink.gif

I was wondering the same thing myself. I mean, no one knew which of the Polished Garnet eggs would be rare and it turned out to be 2/3 of them. So, these guys could all be common, 1 of them could be rare, 2 could be rare or it could be that 1-2 of the colored Gems could be rare while the others are common.

Either way, I'm trying to keep everything balanced evenly or at least have a breeding pair of each.

From my experience they seem to be dropping more rarely. That could just be bad luck though. Is anybody else noticing this? They also seem to be the most popular at this point... Demand could be a factor.

Posted by: purplenewt Mar 29 2015, 12:21 PM
YAY!

I caught two plates and two stripes. It's strange people are predicting the plates to be rare when it wasn't dificult for me at all to catch them but I couldn't even find a gem one.

So excited for the new release. They look awesome, thanks!

I'll try to do the same, but I sure hope it won't turn out like it did with the Pyralspites. I missed their release back in September and am still trying to get the orange and pink ones - Pyropes are pure awesome, but the the other two? I've seen more Golds and Silvers then Coastal Pyralspites while biome-hopping. *grumbles* I'd hate to see this happen to any of the new release too - keep them un- and/or common and fun to hunt for!

Could be, the hatchies are derpy and cute, so this definitely helps boost the popularity. wink.gif

It's generally easy to get gems, just look exclusively in the Jungle. smile.gif They do disappear fast though, but I've seen several times where all 3 options were only gem eggs.

Those gemstone dragons totally did not gender the way I expected...where are their wings? O_o

Posted by: dark_kitsune Mar 29 2015, 12:39 PM
I'm really liking the gemstone hatchlings - they look like puppies in a way. I'm hoping they'll be Eastern style dragons - considering the lack of wings right now I'm thinking perhaps they will be.

Posted by: Marie19R Mar 29 2015, 12:39 PM
Wow, the matured hatchlings look awesome!! With the ungendered hatchies I liked the plate the best, but now I've switched to liking the gems the best. Just beautiful!

I agree. I can't remember why I only grabbed one of the orange and pink back then, but I'm grateful to have even one CB of each of those. blink.gif

Hopefully that won't be repeated this time with the rarity of the breeds. I'm still positive at least one of these guys will be rare though. Just a gut feeling I have. *shrugs*

I'm in the same boat. I do like the Pyropes color best, but the Spesspartines are also very nice and I need at least 2 pairs of each variety for my basic scroll completeion goals. So far, I only have CBs of the Pyropes, so I hope all the gems are fairly common.

Thanks, TJ and Spriters...


HAHAHA, as far as colors go, I'm still trying to get a red Copper CB...

Posted by: Wandering4Ever Mar 29 2015, 01:16 PM
Discovering this release today apparently turns out to be a very bad thing. After 45 minutes of hunting, I haven't managed to grab a single gemstone... And with how the Garnets (Pyropes) are, I'm really afraid of the gemstones becoming suddenly super rare...

I only finally managed to grab two of the condensation and two plated, but not a single gemstone. Muuuuurgh. Stupid, slow internet.


Also, whoever got the egg of ~Removed for the protection of the new owner~, I'm friggen jealous. I clicked that one at least 8 times in a frantic attempt to get it >_>

So far, hatchlings look cute tho. I like the condensations, and the gemstones. Plated kind of remind me of big lumps of scales xd.png

EDIT: Okay, this is the third time in a row where, after I make a post about having issues catching, I suddenly manage to catch what I want. What the fluff. Whatever. >_>;

Yeah, I fell out of the pokemon phase when they introduced Gen 6. The mega evolutions are what killed it for me really. We didn't really need them. The only two that actually look great as Megas are Kyogre and Groudon.

*pokes striped dragon* Wish I didn't have to wait for three hours for my next egg to hatch. I just need one more Drippy and I'll be happy with my catch.

Posted by: Fictionsoul Mar 29 2015, 01:20 PM
Got my second Plate. Still sitting on only one Condensation but they seem to be more common. Three Gemstones though, so hopefully I'll get one of each variation (pleasepleaseplease) or at least get two different ones... None of my eggs even have a single crack yet and I have them on three different click sites ;-;

Wish I had more then 6 slots, with the gemstones having 3 colors I had to make sure to get 3 of them, so I had to decide if I should go with 2 condensation and one plated or 2 plated and 1 condensation. I really like the plated but I really wanted some easterns to go with the valentine ones. >-< so I went with 2 condensations hope I can still grab another plated after these guys hatch!

The new eggs aren't supposed to have cracks yet. I'd keep an eye on those eggs in case they get sick, which is a very real possibility with new eggs. TJ's eggs are purposely set to hatch before everyone else's so that we can see what they will look like while we hunt and wait for them to hatch.
All eggs will only hatch when they hit 4 days or less.

I'm guessing the Plated dragons will have a name that start with "colossal" or something like that.

Posted by: Slaskia Mar 29 2015, 01:37 PM
Just to recap why I (personally) think the plates may be rare.

Not only were they the last to hatch, but they had way more views/UVs than the other new ones before they did hatch. This is in line with metals/rares needing more views/UVs before hatchling in general. The counter to this point is that they gendered first (which took me by surprise). Another possible counter is that this could be a breed 'quirk' due to their apparent biology.

The other reason is that for a while they seemed to be hard to find (gem ones showing up far more than them). However, this is due to various player experiences, which may not show an accurate picture of rarity.

That said, I could be looking too much into things, so I'll happily accept being wrong if that turns out to be the case. xd.png

This is the same reason I'm wondering whether the blue gemstones will be the rarest color-- the reds and greens hatched around the same time, but the blues hatched (and gendered) a little later.

The plates, though, I would believe just need more views/UVs because of their thick, stiff shells.

Pretty sure that when whiptails were released, they took longer than the other eggs in their release group to hatch and mature. Dunno that this actually means anything in terms of rarity.


If anything, rarity speculation seems to be self-fulfilling prophecy half the time... we think they'll be rare, so we hunt even harder for them, so they appear rare because they get picked up straight away. tongue.gif

Someone probably put them into click sites. Others have had that happen as well. I've kept mine hidden ever since I caught them and won't unhide them until they're under 5 days to keep them safe from potential viewbombing.

Posted by: Sapphire Ryu Mar 29 2015, 02:01 PM
I've been wondering for a while actually, what do you do if an egg or hatchling gets sick besides fog it? How long does it usually take for them to recover, assuming you caught it right away?

I don't think there's much you can do other than fogging it, but if it gets sick that probably means it has too many views for its life-stage anyway so it could do with a little rest. I guess a few hours? But again if it's getting sick, a break from being looked at isn't going to hurt it.

Depends on how many views the egg has. If it had A LOT, then it'll take longer for it to get un-sick. And sometimes, I'd have an egg be sick, then un-sick, so I'd unfog it, but then in a few minutes it gets sick again, so I'd fog it again (so that shows it's on the border of sick/healthy).

also, just caught a puddle egg. happy.gif

I'd note they're probably not actually fogged, so be careful not to let them get too many views. The fogged sprite is what it defaults to if it can't find the sprite it's supposed to be.

I used earthquake on my eggs and two of them hatched, but now they are "fogged" and I don't know how to "unfog" them(if I go to the fog option it says they aren't hidden).

And they are gemstones, btw.

Try actually fogging them and then unfogging them.

Tried refreshing three different ways, no luck.

I guess I'll wait for it to update, since the site probably doesn't register a normal user as being able to have the hatchling...or something.

I fogged and unfogged, no luck.

Wasn't there a similar issue during the Valentine cave event with the Pyralspites? Where the sprites appeared 'fogged' in the cave because it didn't know which color they were supposed to be?

Posted by: SockPuppet Strangler Mar 29 2015, 02:15 PM
It might be that they're not coded properly to pick a color yet - on the fogged gemmies?

Two more eggs hatched last night, so I grabbed two more gemstones. I need at least two additional gemstones and one more each plated and stripey. I wish everyone color luck on their gemmies!

I don't think there's much you can do other than fogging it, but if it gets sick that probably means it has too many views for its life-stage anyway so it could do with a little rest. I guess a few hours? But again if it's getting sick, a break from being looked at isn't going to hurt it.

True true. Was really just wondering if it took days to heal, or hours, since that could make a difference. But it probably doesn't, and keeping it fogged awhile longer is good tongue.gif


QUOTE
Depends on how many views the egg has. If it had A LOT, then it'll take longer for it to get un-sick. And sometimes, I'd have an egg be sick, then un-sick, so I'd unfog it, but then in a few minutes it gets sick again, so I'd fog it again (so that shows it's on the border of sick/healthy).

also, just caught a puddle egg. happy.gif

Ohhh, I see, that makes a lot more sense. So, basically keeping it fogged for a good while would be a good idea anyway, so it won't get sick right away again. I see, thanks! ^^

Congrats on the puddle egg happy.gif

It's fine, It seems like the adults have a different sprite for male and female, so I want one of each gender anyway(assuming they are different genders); if not I usually freeze the mature hatchlings once I get the adults, so it'll work out in the end. ^^

There's a one in three chance of any two hatchies turning out the same colour if it's purely chance, which is nothing near grounds at the moment to start panicking about it maybe being scroll coded.

*bites nails anyway*

Edit: and it's even more likely if the green ones are just more common than reds and blues.

Very unlikely. The holiday dragons are the only ones (Snow Angels, Alt. Sweetlings and Spriters variations) that have been coded for specific scrolls in the past.

If they have something like Nebulas, would be even more tricky than with those... Think that if you can have both male and female for one coloration, it will mean even after you influence them, you'll get a random color out of 3 possibilities instead of two, like with Nebulas. You can half-control Nebs colo by influencing the egg, but with this, you'll have no idea and you'll waste a lot of influencers rying to get the right gender of the right color. That will freak me out a little bit, to be honest.

Something time related sounds nice, but a little bit complicated because it won't be Night/Day, but something like Day/Dawn/Dusk/Night... Idk, I think it's going to be random at the end.

I love Gems, they look pretty amazing! The only thing that bothers me is their random 3 colors x_x (Although, all look beautiful! wub.gif)

Not that complicated. You could always go with Morning, Noon, Night for the colors. Green for morning hours, Red for noon hours, and Blue for night hours.

I'd almost prefer that over the random now because of all the points you highlighted.

If it was time based we could easily figure out when to catch and breed for the desired color, especially with the added clock to the new homepage biggrin.gif!

Since TJ has all three colors, I really doubt they would be scroll coded. I also don't think he would make that mistake again and want to deal with the drama it would cause.

The gemstones are most likely random like the nebulas. I would go with time based, (green, morning. Red, noon. Blue, evening), but considering that they enjoy the sun, I doubt that will be the case.

Posted by: Sapphire Ryu Mar 29 2015, 04:33 PM
What if the colors go like this, instead of any of the previous dragons?

CB: Random color

Bred: If two of the same color are bred, the baby will be guaranteed to be that color. But if two different colors are bred, the result will either only be one of the parents' colors, or random.

So say you breed two blues together, you will be guaranteed a blue and can of course freely influence knowing you will get that color. But if you breed a red and a green, then maybe one of two things would be the result- The baby may only be either red or green, so you have a better idea of what you might want to influence it as, or it could be random. (Not saying there should be switching between those two options- just that either one or the other will be what always happens. Either always one color of the parents, or always random)

Maybe one of the dragons has a BSA that can influence color? So say if a blue gem uses its BSA on a Nebula egg, that egg is more likely to hatch a blue Nebula? This can still fit with the lore because it will just be drawn more to a blue nebula to watch, but it's not guaranteed to choose the blue nebula to pattern after either. smile.gif

If it weren't for the codes of the eggs I have (is happy to finally have cool codes for new release dragons) I'd say heck with it and try an EarthQuake to see how it goes, especially since I misclicked on a plate instead of a drippy, but I just can't risk it.

I have a question though. Does Earthquake have a better chance of working if the eggs are closer to hatching? or does it not matter either way? unsure.gif

If it weren't for the codes of the eggs I have (is happy to finally have cool codes for new release dragons) I'd say heck with it and try an EarthQuake to see how it goes, especially since I misclicked on a plate instead of a drippy, but I just can't risk it.

I have a question though. Does Earthquake have a better chance of working if the eggs are closer to hatching? or does it not matter either way? unsure.gif

Don't really know. I've only used earthquake about 3 or 4 times. Last time was with the undies.

No one's eggs would have hatched yet without the aid of earthquake, eggs take at least 48 hours (with incubate) from the moment they were grabbed. So tomorrow at 1pm EST is the earliest they'll hatch.

Posted by: silent33 Mar 29 2015, 05:46 PM
The hatchlings look even better than the eggs. Can't wait for the adults, especially the gemstone ones *aka M&M cookie* biggrin.gif

As for Earthquake... I guess it's just my luck, but I would never try it on new releases. For me it usually results in dead eggs dry.gif

If I remember right, the slots will be taken for 24 hours and the dead eggs stay on your scroll for 14 days.

If any eggs die from earthquake they take up a spot for one whole day and stay on scroll for 14 days, but this late when we don`t know how rare are those breeds i would not try it. Tried it once and i was sorry for it as most did nothing and the valuable ones died.

I hope it's not over. I still need to catch one more Drippy. If it is, then yes. It's a short drop because normally the drops have lasted through early Monday mourning cavetime when releases have been unleashed on weekends in the past. Then again they were usually at Sunday 12:00 so I dunno. *shrugs* :/

I originally Earthquaked last night (24 hours ago), and it just killed a condensation egg. I Earthquaked again 4 hours ago, and it killed a plated egg but it hatched the remaining condensation egg. The 24 hours were up 5 minutes ago at 7:00pm Central, and I picked up another gemstone egg.

Rubyshoes, I'm glad your EQ hatched 2 gemstones. You paid a price, but got a very good outcome. I've seen a red CB hatchie, and now blue and green on your scroll, so that pretty much says we should be able to get CBs of all colors.

Yeah. I'm pretty happy. Usually I'd be upset over losing two eggs but I did get two gems in two different colors and that was what I was hoping for so I'm happy.

Yeah, thank you very much to everyone who's been brave enough to try Earthquake-- I'm so happy to get little bits of information about the gem colorings. Very pleased to see that two eggs caught at the same time on the same scroll can hatch in different colors, and that all three colors are available CB (I assume-- I haven't seen that red hatchling myself).

Edit: Locked up at last with four gems, two plates and one drippy! So all I have to do is pick up one more drippy and two more gems and I could theoretically have one of everything. xd.png

Nope, not yet! (And I caught mine about two hours after the announcement, just to note) And mine are incubated.

It takes four days for an egg to hatch (aka it will hatch at the 3 day mark if it has enough views, etc)

Yep, I have some cracks in some of my gemstone eggs. (Which were caught maybe an hour after the release started and then incubated.) I should have noted exactly when the cracks started, maybe I would have been able to predict their colors. biggrin.gif

Posted by: Nicola Mar 29 2015, 08:21 PM
The plates are the only ones on my scroll that don't have cracks. I didn't incubate those two, though.
Edit: I caught all mine within the first hour.

Only 3 of my seven are old enough for hatchery visits, and none of them have enough views to crack - yet...

I do incubate and influence mine right away, but I don't add young eggs to ANY hatcheries until they are at least 24 hours old, or at the 5 day mark with the incubate. The eggs are unlikely to get sick,and they are generally quite ready to hatch at 4 days after a couple of visits to fansites. I don't rush them.

Seems like plated eggs are a bit rarer than the other two after all. Usually the rarer things take longer to start showing cracks. I'd say they're uncommons based on that.

Not always though. Brimstones are far from rare, and they typically need more views than most other eggs, and I saw someone else mention that brutes do too. They could very well end up rare, but them taking more views doesn't necessarily equal rarity.

Posted by: Lavinia Mar 29 2015, 09:28 PM
Nhiostrifes are also very slow to hatch and aren't rare... I think slowness to hatch isn't necessarily an indication of rarity.

Sorry to hear about your Sick eggs! And glad that you're keeping a close watch on them.


I suspect that this slow hatching with high numbers may be due to the thick shells so carefully specified in their descriptions: 'This massive egg is covered with thick plates.'.

If you recall, they gendered really almost immediately after hatching, so the higher numbers required for them to get through their shells gave them plenty for the next stage as well.


Rare and UnCommons tend to thin out annoyingly quickly during Releases, as none of these new eggs did, thank goodness!

It seems most likely, not only to me but others, that we have nicely Common or at worst only slightly UnCommon eggs in this Release, which makes it much more fun.

At any rate, I'm not overly panicked about being able to get more later, looking at the signs, and I panic easily over things like that, lol, being not the world's fastest catcher.

Hmm. Stones and RCs don't hatch slowly, and Stones are the largest and densest dragons on dragcave, and RCs are specifically stated to be large as well.

Oh well! Who knows why things are the way they are, all I know is that shimmers and tinsels, and golds and silvers, take a while to hatch as well.

I just give up trying to catch any non-holiday release. I had figured it was sticking to the 'every other month' -- release october, nothing in november (incredibly disappointing, since that was my birth month), release in december, nothing in january, release in febuary, and I had thought there wasn't anything in March since we made it pretty much through the whole month without a single peep, checking every weekend just in case.

And the one day I don't check -- oh hey, look, a five egg release, joy. And it's already over, because I missed the window. Like the non-volcanic pyralsprites, I have a feeling I'll just have to deal with missing this collection on my scroll too.

Posted by: snave Mar 29 2015, 10:19 PM
Why do you say it's over? The new eggs are available in Forest and Jungle, with the plated eggs available in both. So what if it's not a mass exclusive drop. You can still easily catch the new eggs with a little patience.

I plan on getting a bunch more tomorrow after my first batch hatches. It won't be "over" for a while yet. And these are permanent eggs. They'll be around forever, now.

The eggs are easy to catch. I just noticed there were new eggs and managed to catch 2 if each plus an extra jem-encrusted one in less than two minutes.

Posted by: arya10 Mar 29 2015, 10:23 PM
There's usually a release every month with the exception of months that are really close to a previous month's holiday (November and January being an example--though there have been exceptions in November) and I think March is maybe a flip-flop month?? I'm not sure, but otherwise, there's usually a release sometime during the month, and usually a bit earlier.

This one is probably so late because it looks like TJ has been 'extending' the holidays lately (so, Valentines day last month), and letting the AP just run dry of the eggs on its own instead of just shutting everything down, which lets things last longer, and make it to where there's still holiday hatchlings halfway through the next month.

Posted by: Twimm Mar 29 2015, 10:24 PM
Finally did it! Got 3 gemstone eggs and 2 puddle eggs, and 2 plated eggs!

I was going to trade my extra puddles for gemstones, but my trading partner backed out of the trade - but I can't complain too much, since I was finally able to catch some of my own, and some lucky AP stalker has 2 free puddles.

The new dragons are supercute!
Thanks, TJ!

Well, I decided to keep that third Plated egg after all. Maybe I'll get lucky and snag another Drippy egg once some of my guys start hatching tomorrow. (incubated 6 of 'em)

I'll also try to grab some more Cookie Dough eggs because who doesn't love cookie dough? xd.png Yeah. That's what I'll do. Grab one more Drippy and then all the rest will be the pretty gems.

The Spriters really did an awesome job this time. (every dragon's awesome, but these are really great)

Thank-you TJ and LadyLyzar, Odeen, and JOTB for another exciting and beautiful release. I always admire such artistic skills as you have. I appreciate your sharing your time and skills with the Cave.

I do see the occasional new egg in the jungle and forest biomes, so I'm guessing it's not really over yet?

They are permanent. They will always drop. but they will be more common than others for awhile to help ratios catch up.

Hmm. Stones and RCs don't hatch slowly, and Stones are the largest and densest dragons on dragcave, and RCs are specifically stated to be large as well.

Oh well! Who knows why things are the way they are, all I know is that shimmers and tinsels, and golds and silvers, take a while to hatch as well.





I dunno, but given enough Views, (although U Views are generally very low nowadays and do affect things, so that I often find far more Views to be required than otherwise would be,) my Shimmers, metallics and Holidays tend to hatch on time, at 4 days.

Rares and the more UnCommon do indeed tend to need more Views, sometimes a lot more than the most Common do, but the egg description on these eggs: 'This massive egg is covered with thick plates' has made some of us speculate that this might have been built into the actual hatching process of the egg, and it wouldn't surprise me if it had been.


TJ's eggs tend to get enough Views to kill any of ours in very short order and I would hope that our eggs wouldn't require 50,000 or however many Views to hatch, lol, so this indicated to me (wildly guessing, of course, and possibly talking through my hat, lol,) quite possibly more of a super-tough shell issue than anything else.


Just checked the Cave, 4 refreshes, and the 1st spot held, in order, Plate, Condensed, Plate, and Plate - personally, I'd say eggs which were not Common or more than slightly unCommon would probably not be showing at this rate, to be instantly snatched time after time, this long after the initial Release Flood, especially considering the numbers I've been seeing in Silvi's and other fansites.


Lol, maybe it's just wishful thinking on my part, since I'm hoping to be able to snag more of all of these new dragons later, but aren't we all? laugh.gif

My plated eggs finally have cracks at 2885/389 and 2866/394 views.

Edit: And fogged for sickness.

Posted by: TheDarkLatias Mar 30 2015, 12:21 AM
Bleh, 4 of my eggs got sick at 200-700 views.
Fogging all of them until they're down to 6 hours...

Thanks, Jazeki, I was just wondering what numbers people were finding which produced results in these, although I'm sorry to hear that yours are Sick.

I'll bet it is the hard-plated egg-shell... needs numbers which are too much for the dragon, but barely enough to crack that sucker at all.

I wonder if we could soak them in manicure liquid...

In that case, hatching these will be a pain.

We'd have to half-kill them to get them to hatch on time.

Posted by: Stormy! Mar 30 2015, 12:38 AM
It also look like the gems have an unique cracking sequence. The crack starts at the right side to avoid running into anything.
EDIT: And some of the gems eventually fall off.

Posted by: MessengerDragon Mar 30 2015, 01:13 AM
Has anyone got images of the cracking sequence? The wiki doesn't, and I don't feel like searching through other peoples' scrolls to find all the stages.

I should check the wiki for the S1's. I always seem to miss the hatchlings in that stage [on TJ's scroll].

Updating to say that the plates have barely reached the third stage of the cracking sequence at 2933/417 and 2911/420. Meanwhile, the gems have all reached the final stage of their cracking sequence at 3000 plus views. The condensation eggs are sitting at the second to last stage of their cracking sequence at 2920+ views. All have over 410 UVs and are at 4 days 10 hours or 4 days 11 hours.

Edit: Condensation eggs have reached their last stage at 2950+ views.

i think i remember the gemstone ones from the completed page. can't remember what they are called though. are the different colors available in the cave or are they breedable like undines, vines and blacks?

so far i like them all. great job spriters.

Apparently, a lot of people have been saying this, but the spriter said that wasn't possible. (not sure though, I could be wrong)

People have gotten the blue and green ones CB. Haven't seen the red ones yet, but presumably those are possible as well.

Holy cow, thanks, Jazeki!

Lol, mine will take longer, probably a lot, especially since I Fog.

Dunno if this helps anyone, but my 2 older plates, at 4D and 11H are just starting cracks, the slightly older one with a long life-liney sort of double-crack at 1,523 Views, 547 U Views 11 Clicks and the just barely younger one with a barely noticeable crack at 1,553 Views, 510 U Views 9 Clicks

The younger one has nothing as of yet, and is at 4D, 17H, although does have fairly close numbers, being only a couple of hundred Views and a hundred or so U Views behind.

My youngest Gem egg (although they're all showing at 4D 10H) with, oddly, the larger crack which looks like someone shoved a thumb through the cookie-dough is at 4D, 10H, with 1,389 Views, 486 U Views and 12 clicks

The 2nd youngest had the thumb-hole by the time I finished typo-ing, (and running around after the dog, who's been particularly restless of late,) at 1,360 Views 454 U Views 9 Clicks

The first one I actually caught has the smaller rip at 1,321 Views 438 U Views 9 Clicks

And my only Condensation egg has a long thin crack (and some scuffs that look like the marks you sometimes see on real eggs that seems to be surface, probably calcium deficiency or something - must get supplements, lol,) also at 4D 10H with 1,402 Views, 484 U Views and 14 Clicks

It'll probably take mine a week to hatch... xd.png

But better safe than sorry, I suppose. smile.gif

I would like to watch these cracking sequences happen, though - very cool!

So it's probably lucky that the dog keep going off and that I'm waiting to hear back from someone, although on the other hand, it's getting on for 6 AM and I'm sleepy, lol.


Hi, MessengerDragon! smile.gif

I thought I recalled these, as there were Gem dragons and Birthstones on the Completed? list (and I believe also on some other huge long list I very vaguely recall our being shown) way back, but yeah, when someone else said that, we were told 'not possible', so these must be different and worked on in great secrecy, but as long as I can greedily bury myself in gems, who cares what they're called! Mwa, hah, ha... *evilly twiddles borrowed mustache until cat angrily requests her whiskers back, using all available teeth*

I know! The gem ones are especially interesting and I can't wait to see what TJ's look like grown up.

i'd ALSO be curious to find out what color the two I grabbed will hatch as.

Posted by: LibbyLishly Mar 30 2015, 07:43 AM
I was gone all weekend (had to leave shortly after noon, forgetting that release time have been at 1, not 12) and came back to OMG NEW RELEASE LOOKIT EVERYTHING IS SO PRETTY! Since I was two days past the release date, I thought I'd be screwed (I live in constant fear of another Blusang or Copper debacle), but they all proved extremely easy to catch, so now I'm locked and well pleased.

I'm delighted to see a release for the Forest and Jungle (not, thank God, the Alpine again), and the breeds are all very intriguing. Thus far, the artwork is also superb. I have a feeling I'll be collecting an awful lot of the little gem dragons. laugh.gif

Looking forward to seeing the adults and starting some breeding schemes!

Posted by: MedievalMystic Mar 30 2015, 08:06 AM
5 more hours till my eggs hatch. Feels like a lifetime. I'm so tempted to earthquake them I had to get off the site last night to avoid doing it. lol

Posted by: ObsessedWithCats Mar 30 2015, 08:13 AM
My eggs have 4, 4, 5, 6, 9 and 26 hours to go but I was extra cautious with hatcheries so they've not started cracking yet.

I don't have any Greens so there's no temptation to Earthquake but I don't think I'd risk it if I did.

Posted by: oddsoxdi Mar 30 2015, 08:22 AM
I DO have the Greens, but lack the intestinal fortitude to use Earthquake again after being SO lucky with the Undies.

One of my plates has 1300v, 455uv, and 7 clicks and it's only on its first stage of cracking.

Posted by: ShorahNagi Mar 30 2015, 08:41 AM
Yay! Scored my second Plate egg! Now to influence and incubate the pair.

This puts me at 3 Gems, 2 Plates, and 1 Puddle. Soon as I get another egg slot in 14 hours, I'm getting another puddle egg (going to leave the Gemstone eggs alone for now until I see what the deal with colors is).

Of these three - my favorite has to be the Plates - I love the color, and the fact that it appears to be a very traditional looking Western Dragon.

Still, they are all very nice ~ thank you TJ, JOTB, Odeen, LadyLyzar and anyone else who might have had a hand in this release and these dragons.

Plated eggs are now completely cracked at 3170 views, 530+ UVs, and 4+ clicks. I think they reached that stage earlier, but I was sleeping and only caught them in time to fog them around 9:30 AM cave time.

Finally got a crack in one of my plates, it seems that while the gem and puddle eggs are at the second stage of cracking with roughly 950 views, the plate eggs seem to be at the first stage with the same amount of views. I've got two of each so far, but no incubates, so I have to wait about a day and half before mine hatch. *sigh*

In order of how they'll hatch:
Plate
Gem
Drippy
Gem
Plate
Gem

I've influenced my Plates as a pair and will probably influence my Drippy and catch another to pair with it - I'm bound to end up trading Gems for the alts so I might just influence them at random (all male the way my Pinks are looking right now) so at least I can say what I influenced them as.

On grammar: not as bad as spelling until you get pronouns involved. And nothing will highlight "it's" as wrong because it's a perfectly legitimate construction for other meanings *grumblegrumble*

English is basically a kleptomaniac language. It gathered up little bits of all the languages it shoved out of the way when it was taking over and now it's a giant mess.

It's so bad that when it does something better than another language you know something's wrong! (Lookin at you, French. What's up with that 4-20s-10 nonsense you've got going for 90)

That is the thing, isn't it.

We have no idea if all those colors even drop in the biomes.

They could be like the stripes in that only ONE color drops as CBs in the biomes and the other colors need to be bred. Keep in midn that TJ could still HAVE CBs of those colors cus he is TJ. We just don't know yet. We shall see once thelittle lovelies begin hatching on other people's scrolls.

So is it random, then... like with the nebs?

We're guessing so at this point - data so far suggests it's not time based either. But probably with all colours in male and female, I think we can assume TJ's conform to the standard on that.

Posted by: ShorahNagi Mar 30 2015, 10:54 AM
Still another 24 hours before mine even think about hatching (that's what I get for being late to the party) - ah well, least I know others will have them hatch before me...and I can see what the deal is with Gemstone colors and decide if I want to collect more of them at present time or wait smile.gif

I can't see them on the "Currently Being Released" page, but I can see the files in the "recently uploaded" list, so it's not the images that are being blocked for me.

In case that helps anyone.

Same here, but thanks for the link to the recently added files. smile.gif

After scouring EATW for a while, giving views, these are the cracking sequences I've collected of the Gemstone eggs:

I may be missing one, but I think these are pretty cool! Someone better at photoshop than me should make a gif of it cracking :D And I'll totally put it in my signature

Posted by: Red2111 Mar 30 2015, 11:11 AM
a new release happy.gif it'll take me a while to catch my fill of these lovelies.

i wish there was a way to tell which color gemstone you get from the egg. at least you can tell with the S1 hatchies which one you have, plenty of time to trade happy.gif

can't wait to see their adult forms, i'm very interested in that eastern puddle one though wub.gif

And I adore those gemstone hatchlings! Can't wait to see the adults! biggrin.gif

It's time, it's time, the first eggs should be hatching! Please come report your gem colors as your hatchlings arrive, I'm so curious whether they'll be evenly distributed!

Also Shadowfighter, that third spriter should be LadyLyzar, I believe. smile.gif

Posted by: Nicola Mar 30 2015, 12:07 PM
Two reds and one green. I was hoping for a blue, but maybe next time.
I also unfortunately influenced both reds to be male. I won't be influencing my next batch.

I have only two incubated eggs - one of which was a puddle who just hatched and one plated who is only at the second stage of cracking dry.gif I've put it in some ERs so hopefully it'll hatch soon without getting sick =/

I influenced just so I'd have a 50% chance of being able to trade with people who need to know what gender they're getting xd.png

My Plated hatched now too, but I'm going to hold off on naming things until I've seen the adults.


As to Gem markings it look to me like they've all got markings in different shades of their own colour plus a different coloured dorsal stripe (on the visible side). I'm curious how the shape of the horns will be in the adults.

My first gem just hatched, and it's green (and cute as anything)! Got two more that should pop in the next 20 minutes or so...

Happy to report that I was able to snag three more gems and a drippy egg within 30 minutes on my phone (!!), so they're still quite easy to catch.

And from the tiny dataset we've got so far, it looks like the three gem colors may be of equal rarity, or at least none of the three is standing out as super-rare. So our dreams of glittering multicolored lineages may come true...

Only another hour or so until I can incuhatch a gem, too! I think I like red best but I'm going to want to collect all the colors for lineage and completion purposes. Reserving judgment on the plateds and puddles until I see adults, but I have high hopes for all three. As far as the hatchies go I like the gemstones and puddles more than the plateds, but we'll see about adults.

Patiently waiting for mine to hatch - it won't happen until tomorrow, as I didn't pick any up until yesterday. Hopefully they'll still be dropping fairly well on Tuesday.

Of all the sprites so far, I think the ungendered hatchling of the plated-egg one is my favorite. They're just so cute AND formidable, all at once.

I have particularly high hopes for the Condensation adults. I've got an idea of what to do with them, if they turn out how I'm hoping. We'll see.

I am really liking this release so far.

Posted by: Jazeki Mar 30 2015, 02:22 PM

Edit: The total for today's batch is two blue and a green.

Posted by: Confused Cat Mar 30 2015, 02:26 PM
I got a blue and a red gem.

I would like it if the colors were evenly distributed and random (so any color can breed any of the 3, and a given pair can also produce different colors and not always the same)... that would make a high "fail" rate when we're trying for a specific color, but nothing would be completely impossible (as it is with Coppers).

I still have about half an hour before the second dead egg lets me have its slot back.

Oh my goodness yes! Now I'm tempted to give my Gems either LoZ-themed names or Hoenn-themed (as in the Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald Pokemon games) names. *goes back to playing MM 3D while waiting for eggs to hatch*

Hmm... When sorting by breed it looks like the Plates sort between Coastal Waverunners and Coppers, so yeah maybe their name is Colossal/Colossus something, the Gemstones sort between Frostbites and Geodes, and the Puddles are between Stripes and Yellow-Crowneds. Name predictions anyone? c:

Locked at the moment with three Gems, two Plates, and two Puddles, but they won't hatch until sometime on the 1st, with one of the Plates hatching later than the rest. Might be even a little later than that since I was careful about putting them in hatcheries.

I believe so. My friend said that three of his hatched. Two blue and one red so far. I'm hoping to get one of each, but I'll be happy with at least two different colors. ^^

Posted by: Husky51 Mar 30 2015, 03:39 PM
I have a very active hatchery so I put them in for a while, usually no more than 15 or 20 minutes at a time When they've gotten a few hundred hours on them, I leave them in for longer times... One or two get sick once in a while if I leave them in too long, but I just hide them for a while and everything's ok...

Posted by: Lurhstaap Mar 30 2015, 03:43 PM
I was going for more new eggs... and I caught a cheese and a copper in the jungle. I've NEVER caught a copper before. o.o I'm SO shocked I pulled that off.

... Part of me is wondering how many gemstones I can trade the cheese for though. xd.png

EDIT: Also, just from observing what's happened with my friends and my gemmies, I think they randomly color like nebbies, except without the gender association. Personally I'm happy about that, and it's tempting to want to do a matched-color lineage... it'd be a headache, but lots of fun at the same time! Think about it - male red gem x red Nebbie might be the CB pair. The colors of the offspring would then be matched with the appropriate color mate to keep the thing going. Say the red CB pair bred a green Nebbie baby. You'd match him with a female green gemmie. Then they make a male blue gemmy, so you breed him to a blue Nebbie. Female blue gems would probably be matched to purple Nebs, or else both would be line-enders... haven't decided. Same with female red and male green gems. Getting the right colors to keep it going for a while would be maddening, but that's the whole appeal, the challenge!

Awww so cute :3 My cookie eggs hatched into a baby red and blue. Hoping for a greenie out of my third egg. Thanks again spriters, the adults shall not disappoint I'm sure <3

Posted by: Yunako Mar 30 2015, 03:44 PM
I have three gemstones. I desperately hope they're not all red! If they're all green, it'll be okay though. Blue is meh. I at least want one green one. I have the perfect name in mind if it's female. laugh.gif

My first gemstone hatched BLUE!!

Posted by: mpolo Mar 30 2015, 03:48 PM
My first three hatched one of each! Yeah!


Posted by: oddsoxdi Mar 30 2015, 03:51 PM
I'm at the point where I've stopped poking with the stick and started bashing, trying to 'help' it hatch.

Posted by: TheEndling82 Mar 30 2015, 03:53 PM
First hatchie went red! I hope my next one goes green or blue, and then I have to wait a whole 3 days for my next one... dry.gif

Posted by: Dewdropmon Mar 30 2015, 03:55 PM
I wasn't able to incubate so my first batch won't hatch for another 22 hours. I hope for at least one blue.

Posted by: oddsoxdi Mar 30 2015, 03:56 PM
My other Drippie finally hatched, so I can go snag another Gem!

ETA: Annnd that's done and I'm stuffed to the rafters again.

I influenced the current hatchling male and it came out red, but I don't believe influences would really affect color, seeing as TJ has it set up so that there's dimorphism in all three colors?

Posted by: Phenri Mar 30 2015, 04:04 PM
Got myself locked with a fresh bunch of new, shiny eggies; 2 armor, 2 gemcookies and 3 drippers :3
Now for the influencing and incubating (here's hoping I have enough dragons off cooldown!). I hope I get at least one green Gemcookie from my new 2 eggs. Their colours seem to be quite random O_o

Posted by: Kovia Mar 30 2015, 04:04 PM
First gem hatched and it's a blue. Happens to be one I influenced male.
Currently wondering if they're completely random or if the CBs are random and bred ones will inherit the parent's color, guess we'll find out later on.

And just found a CB Ice, yay. (Not that I really want it xd.png Oh well, they trade nicely) Gonna hatch a few AP eggs before going for more gems, AP always gets so low on time during releases.

Of my four gemstone eggs I got two reds and a blue - the other one still has a few hours until hatching. I didn't bother to influence so I'll probably be trading once they've gendered.

I was just comparing since we had the same colors. I ended up with a correctly influenced pair of greens, and a red male as opposed to their pair of greens and red female. :-) I didn't think influence was a factor in colors.

My first two, little plates, have hatched. wub.gif

I went to the Jungle which was full of other eggs, but it seemed to turn over fairly fast, and there were Gems! Got one, fogged it, hatched the second plate and tried the Forest. A condensation was sitting there, I refreshed and a plate showed up. Somehow I got it. Hunting with other breeds in the mix has never gone quite this easily for me before. biggrin.gif

The next one to hatch will be my first gem - kinda hopin' for red! smile.gif

Posted by: Rhynn Collins Mar 30 2015, 04:29 PM
Two blue, influenced male and female biggrin.gif Got a second plate and puddle, so have a pair of each now smile.gif I just hope the hatchies gender before these get too low, so I can still influence them.

Wish I wasn't locked though, so I could hunt again!

Gahhhhh, I love this new set of dragons sooo much already.. 2 greens and one blue for me, was hoping for one of each, but since green's my fave color I have no objections. I could just cry at the cuteness of them all. I just want to tickle the little seaweed looking one..

I'm probably going to be hoarding the heck out of these.. Especially the puddle and gems. No offense to the plated, i just love the eastern look.

Posted by: Syphoneira Mar 30 2015, 04:54 PM
Lol, I woke up and unFogged my eggs mostly at 4D and my Stripey egg, Gems and one Plate all hatched as I did so, with another Plate hatching not long afterward.

And easily grabbed more new eggs, along with a misclick, so I'm now daring to take time to grab some Incuhatchables before getting more new eggs,

I have what I hope will be a pair of red gemstones and a male blue gem so far - hope these will be uber-commons because we'll all have to hoard so many, but I think these must all be Commons, thank goodness, the spriters and TJ!

I have a horrible feeling though that I'll love all of these dragons as adults and not be able to focus on just hoarding one favorite, poor me!

This is a wonderful and very fun Release - thanks so much to all involved! thumbs_up.png

All 3 of my first batch of gems hatched red. Just snagged 4 more, maybe different colors this time.

I usually wait for my hatchlings to gender before I name them, but I couldn't help it.

My new dragons hit the 4-day mark while I was at work, so I just now got around to putting them in fansites. It doesn't usually take too long to hatch that way but I've heard that some of these are finicky. And of course I'll be on guard for sickness.

Posted by: lightningsky Mar 30 2015, 05:37 PM
Awesomeness, my last one hatched green. So I have all the colors - just needa influence & trade to make pairs in the future :3

I've got one blue, two reds, and three greens :3 I'm a bit sad about the blue; its code ends in "Oz", so I was hoping it would be any color but blue xD Oh well, I'm sure I'll be able to figure out a name for it ^^

Posted by: Kovia Mar 30 2015, 06:00 PM
I have the feeling that there will be a ton of gem-hatchie swapping going on soon, for both genders and colors.
Hoping the bred ones inherit the parent's color or lineages with them will be a total pain.

...Well, back to poking my gem eggs. They're down to 4d1h as well and I really want to know what colors these two will be...
Also need to figure out what to name the one I just picked up, AcxtX. That's the neatest code I've found this release.

Posted by: Amazon_warrior Mar 30 2015, 06:03 PM
In other news: holy crap the plated eggs are tough! Or at least, one of mine is. Everything else has hatched, and I have this one egg shoved in a number of ERs and the damned thing is laughing at me and refusing to hatch! Stupid egg. dry.gif

ETA: HATCHED. Finally!

ETA2: And of course then I replace it with a mis-clicked pygmy egg. If that's not a "go to bed!" hint, I don't know what is! :s

Posted by: Nectaris Mar 30 2015, 06:52 PM
Last one hatched red, so that makes two reds and one green. Both incubated, none influnced. With color uncertain, I didn't want to influence in case I influenced two of the same color the same gender, I would rather leave it completely up to chance.

Posted by: Esmeia Mar 30 2015, 06:53 PM
Oh, I'll definitely be in on that gemstone-swapping. Got 2 reds and 1 green from my trio. Just grabbed a fourth, so I'll see if it hatches blue! Get the impression the colors we get are pretty random. biggrin.gif

Loving the release so far! Just hope all of them will be pretty easy to get from now on. :'D

Posted by: ShinyDazzlight Mar 30 2015, 06:54 PM
my female influenced gem hatched green, and the male hatched red! picked up another three gemmies; hopefully I get at least one blue one out of this bunch, the blues are my favourite colour so far! my drippy babies hatched, too, so I picked up another breeding pair of them. my plated eggs are being stubborn, but that was to be expected cx not sure if I'll pick up more of them when they hatch or go for more gemmies - they're my least favorite of the release so far [although still super cool looking!], so I'm not sure if I really want more now or if I want to try my luck for a more even ratio of gem colours and genders.
that aside, awesome release so far! thank you so much to TJ and spriters; these little dragons are all so precious <3

Posted by: Syphoneira Mar 30 2015, 07:21 PM
I suspect that part of the issue with slow-hatching dragons requiring a lot of Views may be related to the fact while much higher View rates are required for hatching with lousy Unique Views, the more they're out of balance, the more Views seem to be required.


You can see that the U Views on mine are very low, but not so badly imbalanced as those with thousands of Views and equally low, or even lower U Views, and mine didn't get Sick at any point and hatched on time.


Mine were all Incubated, Fogged overnight and hatched at 4D, mostly the instant I unFogged upon getting up (with good timing, for a change, lol) so all were re-Fogged shortly after hatching, except for the last, just slightly younger and later hatching Plate, at top:


(YJ639) Hatchling Actions 1,520 525 15 Stripey
9xAQf (9xAQf) Hatchling Actions 1,995 590 9 Plated
QRPXd (QRPXd) Hatchling Actions 1,715 602 11 Plated
kfB2S (kfB2S) Hatchling Actions 1,523 520 13 Gem
S7y7g (S7y7g) Hatchling Actions 1,485 490 9 Gem
sHxFV (sHxFV) Hatchling Actions 1,456 482 9 Gem


I've seen various posts by people who've had to Fog their Plate eggs due to Sickness with thousands of Views and thought that mine would take forever to hatch, but normal posting, with one extra fansite added in for the Plates for some hours, worked well on these.


So, sorry about the repeated fansite mentions, but a lot of people don't seem to yet understand, since it's so rarely mentioned, that the fansites can only give out what we, the users, put in and that if we don't give back to the fansites we use, not only the Views but *the U Views that each IP can give each egg only once* will be sorely missed and result, at best, in the slow cracking and maturing rates now common among our growing dragons.

The sad thing is that View rates are a little less horrible than usual just from incidental U Views landing on a few dragons here and there from people entering dragons into fansites without staying to View, and once this initial flurry among the fansites is done, the ratios will further deteriorate again...


If we could each, whenever possible, run each fansite we use for even a half-hour after adding dragons for the first time that day, it would probably help enormously, even if we went back to do it later in the day.


And going by what I've seen so far, I don't think ERing will work well on the Plateds, as the numbers will be even more extremely out of whack and require even higher Views, risking a potentially dangerously high degree of Sickness.

We were all looking at the time it took TJs Plates to hatch after his other new eggs already had, thinking that it would take MANY more Views than usual to get ours to hatch as well, but it now appears likely that they were simply too grossly out of whack on the U View ratio and that the extra-tough shells may have been programmed in and reacting more to this..

Just thought I'd mention, so that people would know that slow and steady does it, even on the Plates. smile.gif

Mine are cracking pretty evenly, they have around the same number of views so its just a waiting game now. I'm hoping to get one more of each to get a full set but we'll see how it goes, I have some breeding plans I want to do with other dragons xd.png

This release is awesome! I sense, though, that the drippies are inferior in popularity. The Gems and Plateds are much more popular, which is alright with me! I like them too, tho

I think it's really impossible to say until we see the adults... the Drippies may end up the most popular of all. That silver fringing looks like it could be very pretty. ^.^ I'm really excited about seeing all three adult sprites and making some breeding plans.

Yay!

Posted by: Shieara Mar 30 2015, 07:33 PM
Thank you for the release!

I got lucky over the weekend and got three of the gem ones and two of each of the others. I really like the plate-looking hatchling.

Now back to my canopy collecting. They will become an unstoppable army.

Yay, my first batch hatched! biggrin.gif
Of my three gemstones, one hatched green and two red.
My two plates hatched with 2,652 V, 714 UV, 17 C and 2,715 V, 705 UV, 6 C.

And I already got another pair of plateds and of puddles, but as expected, it was very nearly impossible to get a gemstone. xd.png I don't mind, at the moment I just wish we'd know what the adults look like. The wait, it takes too loooooong! xd.png

I ended loading up with four gemstones, two plates, and one drippy. I hope at least one of the gemstones is blue.

Posted by: cheese456 Mar 30 2015, 07:44 PM
Got one each of the gemstone colors, phew! One drippy and two armored, and I have three more gem eggs ohmy.gif I want to see them grow up so bad.

Posted by: Syiren Mar 30 2015, 07:46 PM
I still can't believe we have over a day before TJ's babies grow up. I want to see what they'll look like! The suspense is driving me crazy. Dx

Oh goodness, when I saw this announcement this morning I thought I was doomed, but it was surprisingly easy to nab some of each. =D I love dragons with whiskers so I can't wait to see what the adult gems look like!

Posted by: AveryCF Mar 30 2015, 07:50 PM
Woo! A little late but I hope not to terribly. Time to hunt, they look interesting!

Posted by: MessengerDragon Mar 30 2015, 07:52 PM
My plated is cracking nicely now! smile.gif

Interesting how plateds rose in popularity, while drippies fell. I wonder what will change after they grow up...

Posted by: renlacarne Mar 30 2015, 07:54 PM
got one of each gem color this round

When I was hunting, the plated and condensation eggs were the hardest to catch on the first day. The gems were easiest.


Today, I found the gems to be the hardest to catch and the condensation and plated eggs were easier.

I have two green gems and one red. I'll try for a blue later, I guess. Greens are my favs (I wonder if that will change once we see the adults).

Since people's eggs seemed to have hatched already, I'm really curious as to how the gemstone hatchlings' colors are determined. Is it random? Or?

Posted by: Cindy-LouWhoWho Mar 30 2015, 08:01 PM
Thanks for the new release! The gems are my favorite. They're just so cute!

Thanks! Now I'm just hoping I get one of each.

I'm betting the cookie dough/gem ones will look amazing with Silvers and Shimmers :3 Also, I am also finding they're a bit harder to get, but still catchable :3

Posted by: Marie19R Mar 30 2015, 08:06 PM
I grabbed two more plate eggs, as a start for my frozen army. Stage 1 hatchie is just too cute!!

Posted by: Reidragon Mar 30 2015, 08:18 PM
My gems hatched out all red xd.png time to load up on more. I want a blue so bad!

My two gems hatched out to be red and blue!

Posted by: n.s.c.m. Mar 30 2015, 08:34 PM
Three of my gems hatched today, two reds and one green. Grabbed another and hoping for a blue.

Accidentally grabbed a Jungle Magi egg after hatching a condensation, blue alt, and green alt. Got mad so I Bit it with the first Vampire on my BSA list.
I now have a potentially angry vampiric baby. cool.gif I think I'll freeze it at S1; best way of making it look like a gemstone/their egg.

On the plus side I've grabbed a new condensation and thick-plate after my previous ones hatched. Waiting on two more right now.

If we're talking about codes, I have a few jumbled ones I like but http://dragcave.net/lineage/uuu7j little gem (har har har) stuck out to me.

Edit: And now I screwed up with a Fever Wyvern. Bit that one, too! Got another Vampire out of it. ninja.gif

My 3 Gems hatched, 2 red (should gender a male and a female) and 1 blue (female). Now I need to try and grab more and hope for greens and another blue.

Posted by: spring_dragon Mar 30 2015, 09:00 PM
so far got a pair of each plate and condensation hatchies. of the 2 gemstone hatchies i got 1 green and 1 blue. have another one that hatches in 10 hours and i just got 6 more of them. will pick up another of the plate or condensation ones once the next gemstone one hatches.

thanks for the release. kind of different that the hatchies are different colors upon hatching. (i wish that was the case with undines too as yellow is my favorite color.)

Posted by: Wavelength Mar 30 2015, 09:12 PM
I wasn't even online for the whole weekend of the release, but just got 2 of the striped ones and 2 of the leaf-looking ones after I learned about it. smile.gif Thank you for keeping the ratios high, TJ!

Posted by: aangs-sister Mar 30 2015, 09:14 PM
One blue and a green of my 2 hatched. I'm dying to get a red. I caught some more with the hope of getting at least a breeding pair of each colour.

Posted by: blackdragon71 Mar 30 2015, 09:14 PM
All my first round of babies hatched. Two blue gemstones, and a red. Caught three more gems, hoping for another red and two greens. They're so cuuuuuuute...

Forgot to ask, but does where we catch the gems make a difference in their color, or are they only available in the jungle?

Posted by: MessengerDragon Mar 30 2015, 09:18 PM
My gem is green! smile.gif

So far they're only available in the Jungle, right now we're all just assuming what colour they take is random.

The only one I hatched so far is green, I wonder if bred Gems will also be determined randomly or if they will take after their parents? Hmmm.

Clicked the wrong egg by accidebt, bit it, and it turned, but no repulse dry.gif Meh I guess I'll just have to get more gems tomorrow.

Got 2 greens and 1 blue, and caught 3 more eggs - hoping for 2 reds and another blue smile.gif

Both my Gems were red, so i snatched up about 4 more eggs ahahaha.
I'm hoping for more colors.
Also trying to find Plates in the Jungle, in case they're different from their Forest counterparts...

2 of my gems hatched, one green and one red smile.gif Have 2 more that should be hatching by tomorrow, so hopefully I can get at least one blue from them!
