How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Lock

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to mention I redid the top post to fully acknowledge Xylene's (1.4/day) method, and to add a new (1.8/day) method.

 

The only thing left is to work out the number of reds needed to keep it up continually.

My timing is a little skewed at the moment due to the cave, but (unless I decide to hatchie lock myself as I'll be gone) I've been keeping a rotation of 3-5 hatchies 2-5 eggs.

 

Right now, for example (time approx):

 

H - 4

H - 4

H - 6

H - 6

 

E - 5 (inc)

E - 5 (inc) (black, alt attempt - freeze hatchie)

E - 6 (bred)

 

Tonight:

 

H - 5

H - 5

H - 7

- alt/non alt black frozen

 

E - 4 (fog)

E - 5 CB

E - 7 CB

E - 7 CB

E - 7 (bred, black or rare)

 

incubate/unfog/inc&ER

 

H - 5

H - 5

H - 7

H - 7

H - 7 (inced/ERed)

 

E - 6 (inc)

E - 6 (black alt attempt, inc)

E - 7

 

Next:

 

H - 4

H - 4

H - 6

H - 6

H - 6

 

E - 5

E - 5 (alt)

E - 6

H - 6

E - 5

E - 5 (alt)

E - 6

E - 6 (inc)

H - 5

H - 5

H - 5

 

E - 4 (fog if you plan to catch one egg, I didn't here)

E - 4

E - 5

E - 5

H - 5

H - 5

H - 5

H - 7

-- H - 7 (Freeze)

 

E - 5

E - 5

H - 4

H - 4

H - 4

H - 6

 

E - 4

E - 4

H - 5

H - 7

H - 7

 

E - 6 (inc)

E - 6 (inc)

E - 7

E - 7

E - 6 (bred black alt attempt) inc

 

 

etc.... get it?

 

Edit: It's a little skewed as it assumes that I get blacks from my metals ( usually do). If I breed my metals to get metals I usually allow for two egg breedings rather than picking up another cave born egg. I also adjust things based on situations... like last night I tried to get a pink cb egg and got two flamingo eggs, so I bred a 2nd gen nebula and a 2nd gen black to alt after I bit two eggs (locking myself with a dead egg and a vamp for 24 hours/5 hours)

I'm looking forward to seeing how the new limits will affect locking methods. I've been using the 1 new egg a day method but excited for change!

 

Anyone thought about how they are going to use the new limits yet?

One word:

Earthquake.

 

Gotta love hatching eggs early (and yes, I do know what my failure/success percentages are. Still totally worth it).

I prefer my 3 eggs each. I get 3 eggs then once they hatch I grab 3 more. probaly not the best but allows me to chatch a rare if i happen to see one or if a get a gift offering i can still accept then fix it all later.

I have always tried to lock with 4 hatchlings and 3 eggs, then breed for 2 more eggs, and then try to hatch 3 eggs to get to 7 hatchies and 2 eggs.

 

The new limits will take a lot of getting used to. Right now, I have 7 eggs and 12 hatchies, so I am doing well.

 

All my eggs came from the AP except for 1 of them, and the AP eggs I prefer to get are under 6 days. I have used about 15 incubates in the past 2 days. I only have 3 dozen or so left.
