  1. The very first thing question that came to mind was covered by the restrictions, and with both of those in place I think it's a pretty solid idea. The time added would have to be at least 3 days, to allow eggs to hatch without incubation, otherwise it probably wouldn't alleviate anything. For people with the max scroll limit, that's seven more eggs out of the AP which should definitely help unclog things. On my end, it would certainly help with making sure breeding requests are spaced out in case people don't accept the teleport links right away.
  2. I'm unsure why the sunrises/sunsets would need any tweaks, since they've already had their updates and I love their new neon/glowing looks and poses. I've always been a fan of their color palettes and wish I had more. Otherwise there aren't any that I specifically want to pick on, but I'm sure I'd love the changes on any of them. Then again, after armying skywings for so long, I can't help but want to see something really lovely for them. Not dimorphism though, I love having an entire page of my scroll with just a single sprite on it.

    Congrats! Signodextras for erryone! Meanwhile, it's clear my dragons heard me complaining, so I actually got a AoC instead of a nebula. So I've got Ilos Signodextra, to continue the pedigree line. Next, tons of nebulas hopefully!
  4. I put together some lovely 4th gens I came across in the AP to make a couple of 5th gens. I have this lovely skywing that I was able to make because of an incorrect gendering. I won't be able to continue the checker but it's still quite lovely. I also have this great gold checker with skywings and ridgewings. I'd love to collect more 4th gens of the non-gold breed in gold checkers, particularly other blue or purple dragons. So if anyone is feeling generous...
  5. Time: 8:02 PM Dragon Cave Time (DC) Date: 29 September 2015 Moon Phases: I. Aurax (Gold Moon): Waning Gibbous II. Cirion (Blue Moon): Waning Crescent Lunar Heralds: I bred a Gold Lunar Herald egg. Lineage Link I also had my third Lunar/Lunar pair rejection, which is really not a good sign for future lineages.
  6. I was looking for nhiostrifes in the alpine and suddenly almandine pyralspite! But there was no way I was ever going to get it because I don't have my mouse with me right now and I hate my laptop's trackpad. Best chance I've had in a while and I set myself up for failure But the sighting gives me hope for a later opportunity.
  7. If people really wanted nostalgia...there's always the pre-fog dragons from waaay back when. Recognize any?
  8. I laughed a little harder than I should have when I read that. Once the holly update comes out, I'll have to make a banner. "Now with 100% less broken necks!" I'm actually excited about whatever "including (but not limited to)" means in TJ's post. Sometimes the smaller updates are what really make a dragon look refreshed again. And always more dimorphism!
  9. Has to be the pygmies. All of them. Especially Nilias and Magelights. Probably also one for flying purposes. Can't be a skywing because they have trouble lifting off, so it'd definitely be a nhiostrife.
  10. I'm loving those mini-charts! I saved the top one to my own personal lineages spreadsheet, in hopes to start a pretty lineage and keep track of it correctly.
  11. I'm excited that my silver lunars will grow up just in time for the (real world) lunar eclipse happening tomorrow! I'm hoping it'll give me good luck to start the lineage I've planned out for them.
  12. I decided to let my silver lunars gender by themselves because I've been running out of influences a lot lately. So far, all male. DX Time to go trading.

    I'm in the same boat re: lots of projects. My plan is to have two males and two females from Shoukaed, a male and female pair of avatars of creation, a sunrise, and a sunset dragon. But out of the four siblings only one can be pedigreed (Kabusha, who already has been). I'm still excited for the other ones of course. So far I've got Atdzimis, his AoC sister, and Izgrev the sunrise sister. Fingers crossed that I get a male sunset soon to finish the family! Meanwhile, Kabusha really loves to breed nebulas, so I've got the lovely Therum Signodextra after the autoabandon mishap. Maybe I'll try to collect one of each color If anyone's interested in nebulas that I get extras of, let me know, because I want to breed an AoC out of them eventually and I'm afraid it'll take a while.
  14. And I'm out of the the competition with my full set of silvers. I guess my internet is better than I thought it was. Good luck everyone, I know you can do it!
  15. My skywing/nhiostrife checker has reached fifth gen! My tentative goal is seven generations, because as much as I would love to make it longer, skywings are surprisingly difficult to breed out of nhiostrifes and hold up the project a lot.
  16. Got a trio of lovely metallic checkers in the AP today, thanks to AngelsPunishment! http://dragcave.net/lineage/eM1t5 (<- it emits a cool code!) http://dragcave.net/lineage/nw6Wt http://dragcave.net/lineage/gyxLG As a huge fan of skywings and nhiostrifes, these were a dream to catch! And I should have good mates for all of them too.
  17. Wow, well first I hadn't even been keeping track of how many dragons I had in total, so 2436 hit me as a big shock (that's a lot o' years!) with 2017 as adults and the rest frozen. And 1,706 have at least one child, so that's 84.58% of adults. Probably because I try to get a mate for everyone but then only breed them once, lol. As far as children, there's 3208 out there, so 1.59 per adult. And the one with the most children is my CB bright pink with 68 between two mates. I think she's definitely one of the few old dragons I have that I still breed, otherwise its just lineage projects. hooray cool stats!
  18. I just did two different bronze lunar x indigo lunar pairs and they both refused, so I'm worried about breeding more. Has this been happening with anyone else, or is it just my terrible luck?
  19. Actually that's a particularly good detail to point out. A GoN is created by the force of Trio dragons coming together to Summon one with their connection to the elements. If we're going to be extra technical, a GoN's ability to "channel the forces of fire, ice and lightning" (from their description) means that they should also be able to summon a GoN by themselves, aka with just ONE parent, like vampires. Therefore, there should never be a situation where a GoN x GoN pairing breeds a GoN, because that's simply not how they come into the world. (I wonder if having a GoN increases your chances of summoning another one, in the same way that having several magmas/ices/thunders increases the probability? That would be an interesting suggestion by itself, along with letting your current GoN's also have access to the Summon BSA.) Breeding Avatars really shouldn't happen either, as it was previously mentioned that they don't have an elemental affinity. I mean, they even refuse a handful of Valentines dragons, and several breeds can't ever breed any type of avatar because they're neutral. If Cassares are neutral, GoN's are even more neutral than that! It would be sorta neat if they did but it would feel a little strange. If it ever did happen, I also think it should be random. tl;dr: no to breeding GoN's, noncommittal hand-wavey shrug at breeding random avatars
  20. Locked with my blue heralds until midnight PST, so at least I'm not being tempted with open slots. And if there isn't a silver drop I'll finally get around to breeding my projects that have been halted since the release. So either way, a win-win in my situation.
  21. The timing was pretty impeccable on my part, since all my bronzes just grew up in the past hour and freed up my scroll. It looks like the indigos are dropping in big cave drops like the past two as well, so that's a good sign for the future silvers. Thank you all for keeping track of this information!
  22. I don't play the nebula color game much, so I was excited that this one was exactly what I wanted!
  23. Right there with you. When I think "ascension" I think of the lovely skywing sprite that existed and how much I wanted, and still want, to have them as part of my army. But thinking of it as just one sprite is clearly missing the point. It brings a lot of baggage with it too (spriter permission? lineage annoyances? eligibilities? BSA's? etc.) so there seems to be more than one way to make people much more unhappy than happy. After all, there were so so many less dragons when it was first implemented. I think we're all plenty occupied with the ones we have available now (xenowyrms anyone?). I think I'd be happier at this point to expand the things we do have now (like moon mechanics, mana rules, and of course the encyclopedia) instead of adding something as big and unsure as ascension. Maybe we can save the idea in our collective back pockets though. At its simplest, distilled center, I do still really like the idea of the oldest and wisest dragons to have that "mega-evolution" look to them.

    If you need something high-gen, I have a big collection of even gens for just that occassion that I can breed for you. I can breed any pair in this lineage, though they're all fairly random breeds so if you don't need anything specific I can help you out. I may have some stairs and arrows hiding somewhere too... Meanwhile, please welcome Kabusha Signodextra to the family (and pedigree-able, yes?). I was so excited to breed him that I lost the egg due to being scroll-locked, but the lineage includes the other two kinds of shimmer prizes and one of each color of nebula, plus they make avatars of creation! You can see why I was so happy about it, haha.
  25. After the multiple pros and cons, I'd say that as an old user I'm pretty neutral on the subject. As in, if it wasn't implemented it would be business as usual, and if it were implemented I'd join in and get that second CB Yulebuck I never grabbed. Either way, I would start wanting to see more CB's in circulation once 2nd and 3rd gens became harder and harder to find in the AP. You can point at the way the HM prize Hollies have helped out that population in a noticeable way, even in small quantities. But even this year, I was able to scrounge around the AP for a 2nd gen Val '09 after grabbing some even 3rd gens. So as the years pass, I'll probably start liking this idea more and more. As far as the idea of "limited editions" is concerned, I always think about CB Vampires. You can get a CB Vampire at literally any time of day by biting any CB egg, so there's tons of them. But what makes those very first ones special, like the two females I own, are because they say "Egg Stolen on: Oct 31, 2008" and have four-digit codes, two things can can never be obtained again. It's proof that I was there and got them, and that's special enough for me at least. Implementation-wise, it really depends on where the site wants to go in the future. Something like the store makes a points system seem the most logical, or a super-BSA-for-ALL-the-dragons kind of game would have all the holidays work like Vampires (can you imagine? ). Looking at where the cave is right now, this suggestion certainly fits the best with the existing biomes.
