It's not guaranteed.  Some say yes, some say no.  I personally say no.

 

Ah, okay, thank you - so it’s pretty much a 50/50 chance. But I succeeded on the first try !! I’m very happy

1/10 adults - a Lindwyrm

2/8 hatchlings - a S2 Magelight Pygmy and S1 Drake

Successfully turned an extremely messy lineaged Silver Dragon, the other 4 disintegrated but at least I got one!

Another 31st has come and gone and I didn't get an adult Pygmy Zombie. Again. In fact, I didn't get any adult Zombie for the 2nd time in a row. Though I did get some Zombie hatchies that I'm very happy about.

Total death tally: 10 adults killed and disintegrated, 21 (?) dead hatchies with 3 Zombies and 1 revival. And dodges. Lots of them. Again, more on the 31st than on the 17th. (Might have tried the same adults twice on the 31st however because I only got around to the 2nd batch late at night for me and had forgotten which ones I had already tried by then...) Anyway, I don't feel anything has changed on that front.

I'm happy though as three of the zombies are the pygmy sub-types, which are harder to get a hold of.

 

 

It certainly seems to be that way, although I seem to have more difficulties with the Pygmy adults. Is it because there can only be a certain percentage of Zombies of a certain dragon subspecies and since there are fewer Pygmies overall (especially considering the different Pygmy types), there can only be fewer Pygmy Zombies as well? Or is it really just plain old bad luck?

 

Since the changes to the zombification success rate, I've only ever tried for Zombies on Halloween and the other 31sts there are. Personally, I don't think anything else is feasible with hatchies at least; if I spent any more time trying for those I wouldn't get anything else done in terms of scroll goals since they take up space on my scroll for at leat 9 days. Because of that trying when chances are supposedly better seems like the best idea.

I'm sure I'm making zombification extra hard for myself since I only go for CB Zombies and especially with the rarer ones that can be a pain in the behind but that is also something I'm not willing to make changes to. But since it dawned on me this morning that after all this time (there has been the odd few-month-hiatus here and there, too) I still only have 34 of the 82 (?) possible sprite/stage/gender-combos, I might have to consider trying for adults every 14 days or so although that still means twice as much zombiefodder needed.

To me it is as much the fact that they are hard to get a hold of in the AP.  Sometimes they show up, but never in great numbers, and the fewer hatchlings I have of that type means fewer chances it will be a zombie.  I could get them from the cave itself, but that means a (sometimes significant)longer time as an egg.

I was hoping for some Friday 13th luck but my only available hatchling disintegrated... I wish I had planned better to get at least one Zombie with today's date.

I thought the same thing, but all the dragons I tried on disintegrated as well; such a bummer.

I had a batch last night.  Got four zombie hatchlings, no adults.  Two of them were eastern hatchlings though, which fulfills my goals for those guys.  I'm super happy about that, disappointed a bit on the adults, haven't gotten an adult zombie in a while.

First try outside of Halloween or a 31st and no luck. Lots of dodging, 6 killed, one revival.

I decided to try and got no zombies (not surprised). Got a couple avoids, no revives.

Only fails recently, haven't been trying really hard because I'm getting sick of the experience. Am hoping to taper off altogether, except for 31sts.

 

Fails since last success: 21 I think

Days since last success: 22

Still trying for the elusive Xeno.  Loads of avoids, five disintegrates. I fear I'll be stuck on this forever.  :(

Can you kill adults whenever, as long as it is within your kill slots? I might want to try to get some adults together for the 31st of May. So if I don't kill anything till then, can I just get 5 adults, use those kill slots before the 31st, and then try to Revive on the 31st?

 

It's been a long time since I tried to make a zombie!

Yeah, you don't have to kill and revive at the same time. Just be sure to do it within two weeks or the tombstone will disappear and you won't be able to try.
