Good luck, Wobblegong!

Thanks. Perfect mix of weird and good sounds great to me. x3 I think I'll try it. If I don't like it, I'll try what evilSpectra suggested. :3

 

evilSpectra - oooh, neat lineage! I would go with another pink from red x old pink. I'm a fan of patterns. x3 If you need an unrelated one, I could try a breeding once I'm unlocked. ^^

I need some advise with what to do. I got my first Xmas dragons last month and managed to grab this beautiful 2g RD from gold father, and last week I got extremely lucky when I managed to trade for this handsome 2g gold from RD! Tonight he grew up. I was soooo excited - a perfect checker with golds and RDs! I selected a newly matured cb purple, influenced him, selected her......and they refused! I almost cried. I have no other female 2g holiday with a gold parent.

 

Can anyone suggest a good mate for him? The only thought I had was to breed my wrapping wing to a cb something (gw maybe?)

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated! thank you in advance smile.gif

That would be lovely, thank you so much!

 

I wish I could claim credit for the awesomeness, but I was just lucky enough to pick it up, and I was so pleased. I've been leaning more and more towards continuing with the original mates down the line, and the offer of a mate cements it. biggrin.gif

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear they refused. I have a Yulebuck from a gold and I know I'd be heartbroken if that happened when I finally get my gold mate for him.

 

I'd recommend getting another 2nd gen from a Ribbon Dancer as a mate, something with analogous colors like vibrant reds, yellows or greens. Here's a couple of samples.

 

With Red: http://www.coup-detat.info/NDER/Lineage.ph...e%5Bborder%5D=n

 

With Neotropical: http://www.coup-detat.info/NDER/Lineage.ph...e%5Bborder%5D=n

 

The two samples below aren't perfect on my part as the 2nd gen is off, but the CB line should give you an idea of what it would look like.

Probably too late to figure it out for this year, but I'm stumped: what in the world could I pair with this Sweetling to make Sweetling offspring that 1. lends itself to continuing to breed and 2. doesn't require '09/10/11 holiday CBs? (Note, self: grab a Sweetling this year that I can come up with a pairing for!)

Hmm.. I think it is impossible to have a sweetling x sweetling since they are all males. If you want to have a holiday x holiday anyway you could try with a sweetling from sweetling x pink mated with a rosebud, which should give a rosebud offspring and create a sort of bell shaped lineage with your sweetling.

 

Or, simplier, use a female pink instead of the rosebud: you will keep the pink theme but they will be able to breed all year.

 

@SockPuppet Strangler

I had a similar problem when I had to find a mate for a 5th gen tinsel from ember. Since I was not able to have a mirrored lineage I somehow inverted the colors, using whites instead of embers and daydreams instead of tinsels.

This was the result http://dragcave.net/lineage/aEBVY

 

If I were you I'd probably try with an exact mirror (so one line of male sunstones x pb gold wyverns) or just a pb gold wyvern, to continue having the sunstones only in the lower line

Great! I'll PM you when I can breed, evilSpectra. :3

 

Iside - the only reason I'm not excited for a mirror or pb gwyvern line is because I only have a few cb golden wyverns (two pairs, I think, from when they first came out) and I am not good at cave hunting, especially for things as wanted as gw. x3 It was definitely my first thought, though. =)

So, I have these two girls, and I want to join them somehow, but I don't really know what to use as mates so that they make a nice 4th gen together... (since I'm not ready to jump into the high-roller scene of trying to find 2nd gen tinsels)

 

edit: oh! and actually while I'm here. I didn't influence the holly i got this year because I forgot they could be influenced, and this one went female, MUCH to my dismay. So do I just breed her to a PB magi mate and let the holly get lost in the sea or orange, or do a mirror with reds so that there's a nice block of color?

Your girls are lovely. Perhaps golden wyvern would work to tie things together? I would get second gens with rosebud and ribbon dancer mothers, maybe switch things so the 2nd gen with rosebud was paired with ribbon dancer? Not sure how that would look, trying ideas to make it not just look like two 3rd gens smashed together. To let you see how golden wyvern looks with ribbon dancer - lineage.

 

For the holly maybe contrasting female lower line or male upper line using magi and reds?

oh, yeah! I did some not so fancy copy/pasting and I quite like it! pic. Thanks for the suggestion, I think that's what I'll do! ^^

 

Yeah with the hollies I figure i'll use reds in place of the hollies so that there's more than just the ONE stripe of red. Thanks C:

I like female silvers with blusangs and the new speckle-throat.

Sup, I've got a doubt about creating a lineage with only obtained through breeding dragons as roots of the tree. Like, for example, havng a Stripped lineage that started with a White and a Black Stripped.

 

First of all, I don't know if it's even possible, lol.

 

In order to achieve it I thought that the only way would be killing the parents. Don't feel up for killing my dragons because, you know...

And I don't think it'd work the way I need it to. I got a Gold Tinsel whose parents were dead. The owner even named them "I'm going to get killed" and "Me too - Enjoy your broken lineage" :/ Then I found other lineages with tomb sprites which had no link in them so I'm guessing that's what happens when the tombs are removed from the owner's scroll. But the sprites don't seem to disappear from the lineage.

 

Then I read that when you reach the 12th generation, the lineage splits, but how does that work? Will my second gen be the first one in that thirteenth gen lineage or will a new lineage start from that gen onwards?

 

I know it's a bit confusing so if no one can tell then I'll go and just try it myself once I find a 12 gen lineage eggie, I might even have one already.

 

But any help from experienced breeders will be welcome! happy.gif

 

EDIT: Ok, I got the answer for the generation splitting, as was logical, the first generation disappears and the second becomes the first.

 

Guess I'll have to wait until my Gold Tinsel parents tombs disappear from their owners scroll to find out what happens.

Does anyone have any ideas for what i can match with this dragon, when it genders?

 

http://dragcave.net/lineage/Ch46V

 

its very extensive and well breed, and almost perfect, but i dont want any random mates messing with the tree anymore than it is...

 

but its very large so im not sure if I should make it larger...

I just got this shimmer (my first ever!) http://dragcave.net/lineage/POwTK

 

It has a pretty lineage but not exactly even-gen or stairstep and I'm trying to figure out how to influence it and what to breed it to... I think I want to breed it to a sixth-gen tinsel or tinsefail stairstep that gendered wrong? Correct me if that's incorrect.

If you were to influence it female, you could look for a female-line stair-step to influence male to mate it with. Like this. Although, as males display on the top in DC lineage pages, you'd obviously need a *male* dragon, not a female one like Koura is.

I have this shimmer, and was wondering if there would be a good mate for it. I would prefer a seasonal stair step of autumn and winter if possible. Look at my scroll if you would like a trade.

so i got Elessar in a trade, the lineage was short and clean yet sorta messy, so i wanted to turn it into something beautiful.

 

so i spent the good part of the following year, building her what i thought would be a suitable mate; one that would give semitry to her lineage.

 

 

what do ya'll think?

I really like that! it really is pretty and the symmetry of the golds is wonderful.

 

I can't even imagine planning that, you did a great job smile.gif

Has anyone done a stair or spiral with this combo?

 

http://dragcave.net/lineage/Ozndz

 

Gray/blusang

 

I only have 2 blusangs, so although I might get a 3rd gen even-gen with a mirror, that's as far as it can go.

 

I was wondering what it will look like as a stair or spiral, and was wondering if anyone has something they can show me?

 

Thanks,

 

Deb

Do you think they go well together? Or should I work on creating each of them a seperate mate?

 

Any suggestions on how I should influence each of the eggs as well?

In a perfect world, both of these checkers should be influenced female, but then I would not be able to breed them together.

 

So ... Does anyone have any advice on the following?

 

1. I have already influenced this one to be female:

 

http://dragcave.net/lineage/LLxFx

 

2. I was thinking of influencing this one male (instead of female) so that it could mate with the one above:

 

http://dragcave.net/lineage/mLYl0

 

Suggestions / quick advice appreciated as I do not have much time to influence!

 

Potential offspring: Note that right now the two breeding adults will show as eggs, as they are still eggs.

 

http://www.coup-detat.info/NDER/Lineage.ph...e%5Bborder%5D=n

 

Or would you influence both of these to be female and if so, what mates would you find for them?

 

Thank you!
