  1. I just got an antarean egg that really likes to speak in caps, because it wants to remind me to type "X NOT x" I'll have to give this one a math-related name or something.
  2. I was finally able to put this lineage together! It took six months to get the 3rd gen hellhorse, and the very first breeding of the pair was...a hellhorse But hey, it was worth putting these unique combos together.
  3. Count me in as another person stuck in the loop of links.
  4. Got my first full numbers code, and it was on a new Valentine's release egg! I'm quite excited
  5. I've been able to use the low time AP eggs to grab some gorgeous metal checkers. With golds, I've got: Skywing (I actually already have a sibling to this one too!) Mint Deep Sea Bright Breasted And with silvers, I've got: Bright Breasted Red Finned Hellfire Magi Trihorn Plus a bonus Skywing x Ice because yay skywings My collection is now growing faster than I expected, and I hope to find more! Especially since I can't influence any of these

    Ooh I like them both. I like that you have a gold to match with Aylis, but I also really like the dark contrast with the lurker and destruction ava. I think the deciding factor would be whether you want to breed only creation avas or both types of avatars. In my case I'd choose xBiead because I like having mates that produce varied offspring, but it's up to you!
  7. Proud to see some movement on these lines! Fingers crossed I can finish my second team's 10th gen if we get trade partners.
  8. Trying to get a hellhorse out of a hellhorse x pyro xeno has proven to be an extremely difficult task. When they aren't giving me "no interest" I'll get pyros instead. I even got a thalassa before getting a hellhorse! Please, I just want to bred it with this very patient girl.

    Please welcome Nyenyezi Signodextra as the next generation in my line of pedigreed dragons. He's also had his first egg, a beautiful gold lunar descended from my finished lunar herald project. Good thing that they also breed avatars of creation! PS: couldn't throw this one to the AP, it's too shiny (so grab it)!
  10. I wanted to make sure I didn't accidentally breed some of my lunars before the phase changed to gold, so I scroll-locked myself with CB's on purpose. Unfortunately this worked a little too well, and now I'm constantly checking the abandon timers on those eggs so I can breed again. A true test of patience
  11. My lunar lineage is complete, and they finally all have names lol! I'll be breeding Stellar Latitudes and Stellar Longitudes as much as I remember to, so if you have a favorite color give me a poke. I might also cap the list at five? It would depend a lot on the calendar too so not much first-come/first-served happening, and more hey-this-is-conveniently-timed. I just know the next one will be indigo and I've got it reserved.
  12. I wish I could help as well Shokomon, but my days have suddenly gotten a lot busier, and I wouldn't be online during the phase change. Always know that the work you've done is greatly appreciated! In fact, if it weren't for this thread I wouldn't have...this beautiful egg! Notice how the CB's match how the phases look on the calendars. Now I just need to give them really awesome names.

    I've got three of the four nebula colors from Kabusha that I've been trying to obtain. All of his descendants on my scroll are named after Mass Effect planets, to keep with the space theme. Therum, Noveria, and Virmire are all set, and the fourth will be named Feros. Ilos, the avatar of creation, officially has a mate and will hopefully breed another AoC to pedigree, but meanwhile I have Khituong the almandine pyralspite. And of course, if there are any requests for eggs I will gladly fulfill them.
  14. Inspired by last year's matchmaking event I began a quest to create a skywing x nhiostrife checker. With all of the CB's originating on my scroll I've completed my goal of seven generations! (Fun fact: the couple that is in the matchmaking cave is meant to be Turakh and Aswishin, at the very bottom of the lineage.) I'm quite proud of this project, it'll be hard to stop looking for more CB eggs
  15. Just had these two refuse, of course. My lunars love to hate each other.
  16. Thank you so much, bluesonic. I'm glad that you guys are taking this seriously and head-on, it's very much appreciated.
  17. What did my new egg say when I clicked on it? iMG0T! (I also narrowly missed one that spelled "boom", so I would have had "boom, I'm got!" )
  18. Just came by to say that I've found more vandalism, this time on the Mistletoe dragon's page. I didn't know that there had been a problem, but I was trying to look for information about why I got some male hatchlings of mistletoes and went to the wiki in hopes of finding some info. Unfortunately, I found some pretty nasty, inappropriate stuff instead. I'm afraid that if I can't rely on the wiki for pertinent, up to date information, that I may no longer continue using it. Frankly, I always thought that anon updating was turned off since the site was always so well maintained, but now that vandalism has caught on I'd be much more comfortable with user-only edits.
  19. Can confirm, found this out the hard way It doesn't seem to want to reset my location either. Nevermind, got it after I switched from chrome to firefox! Buffy is still eluding me!
  20. I haven't even started the game yet but I can tell there was an incredible amount of work and love poured into it! Thanks so very much to everyone who made it possible!
  21. Hmm, this is fairly compelling. I noticed right away when the limit for non-CB holidays was lifted, I was keeping my own bred 2nd gens to freeze. Even this year, I'm keeping the offspring from my 2 mistletoe dragons so I won't be able to gift any directly. I guess in that case, would you say that multiclutches just wouldn't be enough to solve the problem at an increase of 4 per holiday? I mean, sure, I am keeping one of each but they also breed 2 or 3 to go to someone else hunting in the AP. Increasing to 4 should theoretically bump the numbers by double of what we already see, but it's hard to say. I'm certainly a fan of testing the waters and seeing how it plays out.
  22. Got the two indigo lunars I needed for my lineage today! I've had such bad luck with rejects and lunar heralds that I was expecting at least one to go bad, but they both gave me eggs! Now these two need to like each other and give me a silver...
  23. I figured it was inappropriate to respond to this post in the thread that it's actually from, since I don't plan on replying to the suggestion it's for. But this did get me thinking, and being the spreadsheet junkie that I am, I had to see the stats play out. Maybe others might be interested in my number crunching? The google doc link is here (click on the graphs to see the numbers that don't fit!). I think my favorite finding is that dragon releases are surprisingly uniform, with 2009 edging out as the year with the most. And which year has the most dragons with sprite updates? 2009. (By percentages though, it's 2007). But the most common update to a sprite is adding dimorphism, and there was this little event in March 2010 where lots of dimorphism was added in. It happened to also spur a lot of sprite tweaking too, and they often go hand in hand. The other really interesting thing is that roughly half of all dragons released before March 2010 have had some sort of change implemented after their release. And after that? Well, only one dragon that was released in the past three years has had an update, and I have a hard time seeing the change. Updates are clearly happening to older dragons, and to quote a meme, "more likely than you think." I see it as a clear response to the rising quality of the dragons over the years, and the only reason that the statistic for 2006's updates don't match the ones for 07-09 might just be nostalgia. tl;dr: TJ's pretty good at his math.
  24. There's some lovely drama happening in the Guild Wars 2 reddit thread, and I never realized how much I love reading people bicker at each other on the internet. Especially when I only started playing that game in June and it's all of the old players going back and forth about how good/bad the new expansion is compared to the old content. Delicious drama really! Makes me appreciate the game even more, surprisingly.
