    The nontranslucent one is just the normal Stage 2 hatch sequence.

    Odie is scary in a funny way. In the best of scary funny ways.

    He usually doesn't say if something's permanent or not. In fact, the march release is the only one I can think of that he used the word "permanent"

    They're in all biomes, just intermingled with normal dragon eggs. When they were first released all the biomes were completely empty except for split seconds around the 5 minute marks.

    I just noticed that the blue bits on the hatchlings are where a lot of movement would take place. Like the connections of the wings and forelegs, and the face and tail. I'm wondering if it's not like their dark scales peel off or something. Perhaps an excess layer due to cosmic radiation?

    All biomes. "This translucent egg shines like starlight."

    Or perhaps something like the Lumina? That's more of a passive effect? I think I read someone say something about the egg changing color briefly too, but I didn't see that.

    Well, it came out dark, switched to light for like 10 minutes, then went back to dark. So I don't think I agree with that. If you read back in the thread you'll see people freak out when it changed.

    What if these are permanent hatchlings? Which would be why we couldn't breed or release them.

    Has anyone tried to bite their eggs?

    Yeah, they're going pretty fast. I'd recommend using the ctrl key to try to grab a few at once.

    I think this is the first time I've been on for a release at the actual time
  13. I think they can vary slightly but not by much. I usually see them going for around the same amount each. I've seen the gold and silver ones more popularly in trade.
  14. As a holly owner I second the prize owner's (The_Bucket) statement The reason the value of hollies is so high is because (if you look at the data sheet in my sig) there is somewhere around only 78 CB hollies in existence, and somewhere in the realm of 840 CB prize dragons in existence. The number of hollies is probably higher than that, but any beyond that most likely have little to no progeny, and thus are inconsequential in a debate about trade value. However, that doesn't consider activity. Only about 41 CB hollies are still actively breeding at Christmas times, with clutches normally averaging around 3.2 eggs. By my calculations and findings there are 728 2nd gen hollies in existence, which, if you count both CB hollies + 2nd gen hollies in existence, that's still less than the total amount of prize dragons. If you assume even a quarter of CB prize dragons are actively breeding (210) once a week, and they breed true let's say 1 in 6 attempts (I get this estimate from Bucket), then they would have roughly 8 to 9 prizes in a year. So let's assume 8 prizes are laid per theoretically active prize (210). In that case 1,680 prizes would have come into existence within a year. Last year 124 2G holly eggs were laid. If we hold that calculation to represent how many 2g prizes are equivalent to a 2g holly, one would need to promise roughly 13~14 2G prizes per 2G holly. Now, if you ask me if I am traded that much each year, I'll tell you heck no. Last year I traded my holly egg for a CB almandine, two CB golds, and a copper or two. To be honest, I don't find anything truly as valuable as a 2g holly unless it's a 2g holly. I also don't think I'd believe someone trying to trade me 13+ 2G prizes Holly owners get the short end of the stick when it comes to trades, because no one really wants to give them what they're really worth (unless they're another holly owner doing a bloodswap but that's beside the point). And this isn't to say the people who trade for them are bad, or purposefully underpaying, but because there are so few holly owners, and until I created my sheet I don't think anyone really knew how few and far between we are. However, we holly owners see the happiness it brings to people and I know a handful of 2G holly owners who regularly gift their hollies or donate them to competitions or drop them on people's heads. I love the reactions from people who grab my eggs in the AP and seeing how happy people get when they receive one or grab one or win one makes the unfair trades worth it. On the other side, we also tend to get pestered or asked for lots and lots of trades, even out of season. It's hard to talk to someone without our hollies coming up in conversation, and that sometimes causes us to withdraw. I'm going to stop blathering now because I'm already neck deep in this post and I've gone on waaay longer than I should have If you have any more questions on the state of hollies, please feel free to PM me or ask here.
  15. I normally do "Name Contains". Also, I've found in certain instances, for whatever reason, it seems to be case sensitive.
  16. https://forums.dragcave.net/index.php?showuser=58537 Would this be them?
  17. Obviously inflection is lost when this conversation is typed out, but to me that sounds insanely creepy and scary O.o be safe!
  18. Because almandines (alpine pyropes) are rarer than golds and only appear in one biome (the alpine) whereas golds appear in all. So the odds of one appearing is astronomical.
  19. Personally, I think blusangs are a bit less rare than papers.

    Hoarding

    I think this idea is really cute, and I don't really care one way or another and if useful items are included. Perhaps a badge though depending on number of items in your hoard or completeness of your hoard based on how many individual item types are possible?
  21. I'm extraordinarily lucky (at least I think so). Every scratcher thing I've ever done I've won money. Whenever I bet on horse races I usually win, for example last summer I went to the races, bet a total of $12 throughout the day and came home $50 richer. Yesterday I went to IHOP and they accidentally made me an extra crepe for free. Today I went to Jamba Juice and their systems were down and they were doing everything manually with their item codes and for whatever reason the item code for the drink I ordered was messed up and they couldn't charge me so they let me have it for free. My favorite teacher in college doesn't normally teach classes in the consecutive order students need to take them in but he just so happened to be assigned to do so the four classes I needed to take in that series. There's a lot of other things that have happened that are lucky, I suppose you could count me winning a holly as one. In any case, I think my luck is abnormal and strange, but awesome

    Undertale

    I'm making my bf an undertale blanket for his birthday :3 Muffet is his favorite character so it's shaped like her web.
  23. That's probably the prettiest spider I've ever seen, or perhaps it's just my screen, but it looks blue to me and pretty. Glad to hear you weren't bitten. My dog was bitten by a nasty spider a year back and it dissolved away a tennis ball size hole in her side.
