I need a suggestion: a couple of days ago I got this awsome gal

http://dragcave.net/lineage/3dQ3A

and now I have to find an appropriate mate.

 

My idea is to create it from the beginning, using a similar color scheme but with "cold" instead of "autumnal" dragons

 

The final result will look like

Do you think it could work?

That looks great! The only change I'd make is to have the darker dragons of the "cold" lineage on top and get lighter towards the bottom (if you know what I mean) because the 1st gen of the autumnal lineage kind of gets darker towards the bottom, so it'll look more like a gradual change from autumn to winter.

I hope I'm making any sense. xd.png

If you influence your egg male then the blue of the female Hellfire would blend in with the blues. I see why you used the White there to get the SoulPeace, but it seems a bit out of place. I might use a different blue instead. But what you have done is fine and you should do what pleases you. smile.gif

Have this: http://dragcave.net/lineage/TIaMF

 

Unfortunately no CB frills and only a 2nd gen frill wrong gender. Never attempted other than stairstep before and unsure what would be complementary?

 

Also have to hollies and no idea:

For the tinsel, I would recommend just making an arrowhead with a 3rd gen stair gold from female frill or vine.

 

The even-gen holly I would recommend mating to a 5th even-gen white from spriter alts (different alts from the holly's lineage). If you like, I could breed you a lineage that would look like this.

 

I'm not sure what to tell you for the other holly. :/

I think the arrowhead, as Lavinia suggested, would be nice for the Tinsel, but I know you don't have Frills to use. You could use Vines with Gold or GW and make an opposite 3rd gen stair.

 

For the first Holly I would try breeding a mirror image of it using whatever similarly colored dragons you have. Winters would be nice for the blues, but you won't have time to breed enough gens of them once the seasonals change to winter -- not for this Christmas, anyway. You could use Royal Crimsons for the red.

 

And I have sent you a PM offering a mate for the other Holly. smile.gif

For the bronze I'd probably go with an alternating double stairstep, something like a cross between these two -> http://dragcave.net/lineage/WZTtF and http://dragcave.net/lineage/3TAkc

 

I like the frills with ice, but I think any of these would look nice too->

 

lumina-similar wing style http://www.coup-detat.info/NDER/Lineage.ph...en=4&mate=TIaMF

 

black tea-old fashioned looking, like the frills http://www.coup-detat.info/NDER/Lineage.ph...en=3&mate=TIaMF

 

guardian-another old style dragon http://www.coup-detat.info/NDER/Lineage.ph...en=3&mate=TIaMF

 

purple- and green, what's not to love? http://www.coup-detat.info/NDER/Lineage.ph...en=3&mate=TIaMF

 

stripes-cuz the frills are striped too, matchy, matchy, lol http://www.coup-detat.info/NDER/Lineage.ph...en=4&mate=TIaMF

 

seragamma-cuz I like how there is a just touch of orange like the frills have http://www.coup-detat.info/NDER/Lineage.ph...en=3&mate=TIaMF

 

I'm sure there are other combinations you might like, but these are a handful that would appeal to me. biggrin.gif

Just bred this; http://dragcave.net/lineage/EsDnV I'm thinking a double checker with blue and purple nebualas + some other mates would be best but then again the gold and green kinda clashes with the red and black. Should I just look for two different nebula checkers to breed the parents with and then breed them all together?

 

Also, if anyone needs anything bred off my scroll for a lineage just PM and I'll be happy to gift (Mallois, Serilda, and Alcina are off limits but everything else is fine). smile.gif

Sarah864Red and Green are complimentary colors on the color wheel and make excellent accents against each other. That's quite an astonishing lineage. I'm not crazy about nebulae, but it's very eye catching.

 

Building a mate which features the remaining colors in checkers to combine with this existing egg would be beautiful! If you wanted to work on some kind of a mirror to go with what's here, then for the female half (purple nebula) consider a dark colored dragon with purple accents. Lurkers might be a good choice if you don't mind waiting for their breeding season to roll around, or purple dorsal would be another option. The male half touches against a primary color, so since you already have the primary (blue nebula), consider maybe touching it against a bright green dragon of some kind (to echo the brightness of the gold). You could touch it against a purple, but since you would already be working with purple for the other part, I don't know if that would be too much purple.

 

However you decide to go will no doubt look stunning. Those were just some ideas you're welcome to discard if they're not your style.

 

Cheers!

Wow, thank you! I have a lot of great lineages on my scroll but I struggle with who should breed with who (still new at this I guess) which is why I offer to breed and gift so that I can get a good idea of what people value. I never thought about primary colors that way before...it's definitely something I'll keep in mind. Thanks again. biggrin.gif

I think you could actually go with orange to match up with the blue Nebbies. It would be bright enough for the Golds. There isn't much orange on DC except for Magi, though. Maybe you could even try Seragamma. Dunno how it will stand up to the Gold, but it would look pretty with the bits of bright orange accents.

 

Alright my turn!

 

So I have this guy but I'm not sure what to do with him! I'm thinking I'll just have to get some stairs and breed them enough to try to continue, and I'm thinking of using a gold tinsel+shimmer but what should the mates be?

Thanks for the assistance, special thanks to purplehaze hopefully should have a good mate for the even gen holly.

 

The tinsel will have to have a think about though have been given some great food for thought.

 

The arrowhead is it? going to have to mooch about and see if can get anything sorted for christmas breeding..

Need some advice again sad.gif I'm working on making an epic soulpeace and I'm stuck between using a double decker thuwed offspring with http://dragcave.net/lineage/sl3Mc and http://dragcave.net/lineage/iDjrr or using pretty colored http://dragcave.net/lineage/9gaHm . The offspring will eventually be bred with some more thuweds anyway but I'm also stuck between using http://dragcave.net/lineage/t7kkg or http://dragcave.net/lineage/LY2o9 for the lineage. Thoughts?

Hello, Lineage advice folks.

 

I have a Shimmer stair with sweetlings, but in the most recent generations the lineage swapped to pink dragons. Do I breed in a male pink to continue the line for the color? or a sweetling for the breed despite the fact my sweet is black?

 

Thanks smile.gif

Personally, I would go with the Pink dragon to keep the color going. I think the Alt Sweetling would look out of place.

 

@ Sarah864 - I think the lineage you are asking about now is very much a case of just doing what looks pleasing to you. smile.gif None of them would be "wrong" so just go with what you like.

That's what I was thinking too, but I wanted a second opinion. Thanks!

My Yulebuck (an AP find) is a stair with Spring in the first gen, and Magis in the next two. Should I breed him with a Spring this Christmas, for a Spring-Magi-Magi-Spring pattern? Or ignore the Spring in the first gen, and just go with a Yulebuck/Magi stair? Which do you think would look better? I'm trying to work with the lineage I got, since it's my only Yulebuck. smile.gif

I would go with a spring just because it looks cool and magi stairs are kinda common.

 

@purplehaze thanks for the advice but do you have any idea on which combo would make the end result more rare? I can post the other parts of the lineage if that would help...

I found a white dragon on the Ap that im curious as to what would be a good mate for him. http://dragcave.net/lineage/Eqdb7

 

I have a bronze shimmer that I was thinking of using once it hatches: http://dragcave.net/lineage/3jI5k

 

But would that be good? or should I look for something else?

That would make an extremely pretty lineage in my opinion! The two dragons are related, though, so if you intend to trade the offspring you might want to avoid inbreeding. Another option would be to try and breed a White dragon with a holiday/spriter's alt base to match the one you have.

I agree about using the Spring. wink.gif

 

If you are interested in rarity for trade value, I honestly don't think a lineage like that has much trade value. It will be a great lineage and quite an accomplishment to have built, but not the sort of thing that trades well.

I completely forgot to check if they would produce inbred offspring. Thank you very much for pointing it out. Id like to breed a suitable white mate with holiday/spriters alt base, but im not even sure how to get started on that.

I may be able to breed something, I have many dragons on my scroll with spriter alts in the base. Take a look at my scroll and PM me if you'd like anything.

I may be able to help, too, if you can't get what you need from Sarah. Or maybe between the two of us we can give you building blocks for what you need. My white dragons are near the end of my scroll and are the ones you would need to look at to find the holiday and spriter alt lineages. smile.gif

I am looking for an example for a hyperstair or a hyperhelix that I can show to the OP of one of my breeding projects because they can't imagine how it looks.

 

What I mean is a stair or a spiral where all children of the lineage aren't breed to a cb but a 1th gen dragon.

For example creating a stair or a spiral by using 1th gen Soulpeace Dragons as mates. There are no cb Soulpeace dragon so I kind of hope someone has done something like that before. Or maybe someone has done it with geodes, ultravioletts, blunas ...

 

In case you wonder I am trying to talk the OP of my project into allowing a hyperstair or a hyperspiral made out of stripes. I want to breed the children of my lineage to mates from the same colour and since all cb stripes are white I need to use 1th gen dragons. If someone had a lineage like that it would be ideal, but I think I can get the idea across with any hyperstair or hyperspiral that is long enough.

Thank you for your input about my Yulebuck, Sarah864 and purplehaze. I think you are right and I am going to breed him with a Spring this Christmas. The offspring will be for gifting and I want the baby to look pretty. smile.gif

 

Laura-Lana: is this the kind of lineage you are talking about when you say hyperstair?
