Woot  8th gen alternate alt and a Z to boot!

Wow!  Nice!

 

O.K.--I'm going to admit it.  Part of what I like about the project is just making lists and crunching numbers and breeding every week.  I've long thought that I got quite a few z's on Saturdays.  I was supposed to have 8 slots available, but Lagie posted an offer I couldn't refuse the other day (a cb honeydrake), so I went in with 7.  I'll have a slot about 10 hours from now, but I wouldn't call that the same breeding event.

 

Today rivaled one of my best days (may be my best, didn't count last time it was this good):  120 pairs of z's bred, 7 eggs = 5.8%

A 1/36 shot at z coming in first is 2.7%, so I beat the odds.

That's a highly unusual day--can think of only once or twice it's been that good.

Funny thing is, after breeding my pure'z third gens, I had three left over--one pygmy, one drake, one regular (not quite one bourbon, one scotch and one beer...any George Thorogood fans?), and when I bred my second gens I got a pygmy mate and a regular mate for 2 of them!  That's a good day--

 

I also hit 2000 dragons today.

At 1000 dragons, I had 433 z's (307 caveborn, 37 pure'z second gen, 1 pure'z third gen) or 43.3% z's

At 2000 dragons I have 1296 z's (824 caveborn, 148 pure'z second gen, 25 pure'z third gen, and 2 pure'z fourth gen) or 64.8%

Unfortunately one of the fourth gens is a pygmy, so they can't try for any 5th gen magic.

 

So, for my second 1000 dragons, I grabbed or bred a whooping 863 z's!  86.3%!  Most of the other 137 were BSAs or hatchies to freeze, etc., plus a couple non-z gifts.

 

So--those are the numbers.  They don't mean much in the grand scheme of things, but I had a good time.  There will be another report at 3000.  :)

 

Ooops--had to edit for some bad math!

Whoa, that is amazing stats there, congrats @random_dragon_collector! I took a detour and became a code hunter somewhere in the middle of the journey so I don't take and keep Z codes that often (yet somehow, in one or two trades, people still offer me Zs anyway!) You inspire me with that, maybe I'll show my collection of Z codes someday :D

Thanks!  and you do have some pretty awesome codes!

I am not as exclusive a Z-code collector as you are, Random. I collect and breed a lot of other stuff, too. I really have most of the CB Z's that I want of the older breeds, except for some of the uncommons or rares. I'm more focused on breeding higher generations now, hoping to extend my all-z line. I have one pair of 6th gen all-z's at this point. My higher gens have been really stubborn lately, though. I think the highest I have succeeded in breeding recently are 3rd gens.

 

I have 1660 CB or all-z regular dragons, not counting my drakes, pygmies, and two-heads.

I'm finally hitting the kind of critical mass I need to almost always be able to breed a z.  But last week--I bred 300 or so pairs and got 3 (1 I gave away because I had a sib)!  After this fabulous lunchtime, I still have over 200 pairs raring to go once I have a slot.  It's such a crap shoot!  I've got one fourth gen each of regular and pygmy, but some 3rd gens--hoping to breed them mates before too long.  I've only got 42 caveborn drakes, but already have one 3rd gen.  I've got 123 caveborn pygmies, and I've managed a fourth gen and a handful of thirds.  I've only got 31 caveborn 2-heads, have bred a few second gens, and have gotten a couple second gens from you on the thread!  No third gen of those yet.  I decided early on, within a couple months of starting that I'd focus on just one thing--the z's.  I originally wanted to do mostly pygmies because they can't be bitten--and indeed they're my second highest level of z's.

 

At some point I need to stop collecting the cb's and just breed for the higher gens with what I've got, but I'm still not to the point where bred z's take over all my slots.  Some day!

Just as a follow up to my earlier post--I bred 12 pairs to fill my last slot.  So 1 in 17 at lunchtime (7 eggs/120 pairs) and 1 in 12 tonight.  Yeah--might shoot for Saturday from now on.

On the other hand I bred about 80 pairs and got 2 Z codes -- which is close to average, I guess, but doesn't point to Saturday being any better for me than any other day. XD It's just that you used up all the Z's!

@Fuzzbucket, lookee what I offered on in the Hub - https://dragcave.net/lineage/znYIs

XD

 

I was actually offering on it to offer it here. If anyone wants to trade directly, here's the link - https://dragcave.net/teleport/18e95c10fc69abb9b0ce0c9a8474aa66

 

That's funny - that was what I traded to get that 2g gold shim on the last page ! (I said it was fine to trade it.... I just Wanted That Gold !)

 

Actually it's even funnier, since she's trading it herself (as I said to do)  - so I have offered on it. I was sad to give it up when it showed up Z but - I just Wanted That Gold ! Let the best offer win (3g PB even gold; what was yours ?)

My 2nd gen golds didn't produce, or we'd've had the same offer. XD She took yours over my CB magma.

I finished my z breeding for today -- got one 4th gen and one 5th gen, but my CBs only gave me one 2nd gen out of 88 pairs!
