Lineage Advice

Recommended Posts

The past few months, people have been PMing me regularly asking for lineage advise. What kind of mate would fit the best for a dragon they have. How to continue a certain lineage. How to find a good mate for their complicatedly lineaged holly. And so on.

 

Now, I am opening a topic on lineage advise. Do you want help creating a mate? Ask me, and I will help you as good as I can smile.gif I have helped several people in the past.

 

Example of a mate I created: http://dragcave.net/lineage/dn0p

 

Instead of breeding it to a mixed mate, it is now perfectly mated up smile.gif

 

 

I'll be waiting for your help requests smile.gif

1/ This stair is the hardest to get a mate for, http://dragcave.net/lineage/1XWJ

 

The closest possibility was an opposing arrow, but the list was long, and spring came along, so this may have to wait another 8 months

2/ The second one is this, http://dragcave.net/lineage/V1uA A mirror would be ideal happy.gif

Not sure what mate to give to this hatchling, whether it genders male or female.I don't have a male silver.   http://dragcave.net/lineage/eNS6

I could get you a mate for that smile.gifhttp://dragcave.net/lineage/BdU2 would be a sibling to this.

 

But basically anything that is checker with silver, would go well, i think. Let me know if you want a breeding from that smile.gif

Yes, I agree, opposing arrow would be the best. Many people could and would probably breed you one, as for myself I can do http://dragcave.net/lineage/mV5u and http://dragcave.net/lineage/TubO . Let me know.

 

The second one, wow. Um. My best advise would be: get a red stripe from stripe x red (or stripe x holly, but that is hard to come by), give that to someone who has either a val from white that is unrelated, or maybe a sweetling from white (that would make it mirror). Then they can breed you the 3rd gen. I can draw an example, give me 10 minutes smile.gif

I have another idea, but that will take a little more time.

I'm still debating which way to go on this one.

 

http://dragcave.net/lineage/npVe

 

continue an alt/color base with the reg. Vday dragon as 2nd gen, or perhaps put all PB black on top and PB white on bottom....I dunno, hard to find alt Vday now or a 3gen black/white with the same lineage. What do you think?

I would try to get either another white from gold, or a white from a (CB) event dragon. I am sure many people wouldnt mind breeding for you, including me smile.gif

Wow that is a hard one. It shouldnt be impossible, tho, to find people who have normal sweets from alts that arent related to this one, with the right color combinations, if you ask around. Maybe in the even gen thread. It wont be easy though.

 

Ofcourse, like you said, something entirely else might work too, like black on top and white on the bottom, or mirrored. Good luck with it!

I've got kindof a more general question. I was lucky enough to get a CB gold a while ago, and wanted to start a lineage around it, so I named it God-Emperor of Mankind and I'm breeding it to other CB's in a Warhammer 40k theme. The CB mates I named after space marine chapters, and the offspring after primarchs: like this and this. But my problem is... I don't know what to do with it after the 2nd gen. I kind of want to try making it a group project but I don't know if other people would be interested in the theme, or what the next mates for the primarchs should be, if it should be staircase or what. Is there somewhere good to gauge interest before starting a community lineage?

I dont know what those names are xd.png but I would suggest making even lineages for that. For example, get a 2nd gen vine from gold (many people would not have a problem breeding you one if you ask politely and offer a trade) and breed those together. When you have the 3rd gen, get 2 more 2nd gen vines from unrelated golds, and create the mate. And so forth. This way the CBs will be all gold/vine, and the later gens all vines. Same with the white.

 

You can probably ask in the even gen thread if someone wants to help smile.gif

 

Good luck.

Yes, I think that would look very nice. Ofcourse, to my taste, all silver or all gold looks the best, so I would keep looking for an all silver x black black to mate the silver. But until you do, this will do very nicely smile.gif

I was gifted with http://dragcave.net/lineage/a8SE

only 6th even gen I have is this http://dragcave.net/lineage/WYgW ( but there is slight inbreeding....)

What do you think should I influence the egg opposite and try them out or look for something else?

It all depends on how much you like or dont like inbreeding. Many people dont mind inbreeding at all if it is pretty, which would be the case for your pair. Other people shiver at the thought of inbreeding a lineage.

 

I think that in your case I wouldnt breed the two together, simply because I dont want any more inbred stuff on my scroll (except if it is a project). But if you are fine with that, go for it smile.gif

Hey Saar. xd.png Nice thread.

 

Anyway, I have a dragon I'd like to get your advice on. I found http://dragcave.net/lineage/k9qB in the ap back in november of 2010 (When I first joined) and have been looking for a mate for it ever since. It's a pure thuwed lineage which makes it hard to find a nice mate for it.

 

I've already given up hope on finding a non-related pure thuwed to mate it with so I wanted to know if you had any advice on what would look nice to mate it with, if anything xP

^HOLU CHEESEROLL. All I can say is, good luck. Because some of them just can't do anything but stand there to be pretty and it may well be the case. Unless you start from scratch and get an all ev-gen dorkface or dusk lineage to complement it. But then that's...@___@ Yeah.

 

Anyhow. I'm going a bit bonkers over here because of this particular gift. I do have some 3rd gens I could use but nothing looks complementary enough. And I don't know which gender to influence it.

 

Here's blue stripe and the inverse, or other gendered.

This is pink and here it is flopped the other way around.

This red might be good but it already has a mate.

 

So...yeah. Help?

Well I do have http://dragcave.net/lineage/nfoj that I could mate him to. I own the parents of that white too but I'm not sure how it would look.

Hope you don't mind an interruption, Saar..

 

Frostmourne, thanks for giving it a home! I bred that- sorry for making it so difficult to mate XP

Something like this, I imagine. But I can see why you'd hesitate. The WhitexGold is not as mixed as the Thuwed's so it's a lil iffy.

Awww, but it's pretty to look at too so that should be fine. >w>

 

I'm posting for my husband who does not have a scroll account yet. He would like to know what would be a good mate to this:

 

http://dragcave.net/lineage/n/Darkest%20Anger

Ehhh, maybe something like this?

Have an arching dragon type to complement the magma and...stuffs. ^^" Just a suggestion.

@Sinsdaemn: My husband says he loves your idea and is going to try it! Thank you!

^^ Happy to be of service. My only regret is that I can't offer to breed a sibling to Pandaemon. 'Sides, I like it that we can all bounce ideas off each other.

That's alright. My hubby has issues with working from scratch. He likes to own all the parents. Or he nabs eggs from me! Lol.

hi!'

i bred this http://dragcave.net/lineage/XGnd and have no clue what would go best with that kind of lineage

That's a gorgeous lineage you've got there. If you want, I could breed you a sib of this sometime, if you wanted to keep with the mixed holiday theme. The pairing would look something like this. Also, if you're taking a list for siblings of your dragon, I'd love to be on it.
