Great Lineages Found in AP

Recommended Posts

Let me insert a question here I've wondered about for awhile - to most DC players, what is more valuable, a low-gen (2nd or 3rd) dragon, or one with a long, perfect lineage?

 

Personally, I like the long-lineaged dragons because I figure they're harder to find... but maybe others prefer the low-gen dragons so they can work on their own lineage projects.

 

I'm kinda new to lineages, so what do you guys think? Enlighten me ^-^

I breed more than I collect, so I like lineages that I know I can continue. Long stairs are ok, but some of the epic 12-gen even-gen lineages? Uhhh, that's a lot of work to create a mate. huh.gif

 

And no matter how rare a dragon is, if it's got an arrowhead shaped lineage, I will throw it back, because there's no way I can continue it. I don't even know how to continue it, lol. I'll also throw away lineages that depend on a CB or single-gen Prize dragon (or Holly or Frill). I've caught a couple of CB Golds & Silvers, but I won't keep a dragon w/an impossible lineage.

You just add another arrowhead to it!

I think you're losing out then. Regarding arrows: you can double them like this: http://dragcave.net/lineage/aqCYl (the mother was an AP find, if I recall correctly, and the father was a lovely gift wub.gif)

 

Found this on the AP the other day: https://dragcave.net/lineage/9XBUe

Oh, and of course:

Planning this http://www.coup-detat.info/NDER/Lineage.ph...en=7&mate=ntadi to go with this http://dragcave.net/lineage/a3xeC

 

Most of the non prizes were AP finds I combined to create arrows and Vs (as I call them).

It's not that longer lineaged dragons are harder to find so much as you just don't see them being actively traded much. I personally don't think it's because they necessarily have a lesser value so much as that breeders are far more likely to simply give them away or swap for other lineages. This is doubly true for lineages that don't involve metals or other rares as their trade value is just so much more subjective.

 

Myself, unless someone specifically requests one of mine I just breed and drop my lineages to the AP for others to find. As far as I can tell, most breeders do similarly. Many of mine wouldn't be possible without the generosity of other players; it just seems like poor taste to assign a value to them, for me at least.

 

2nd-3rd gen metals/prizes are basically currency around here, which is why you see them being traded for the most. Spend some time in the breeding subforum or on the AP and you'll find more gorgeous 5th gen+ lineages than you'll know what to do with. I can find dozens on a daily basis and end up throwing most of them back simply because I have too many projects of my own, but I do love to admire and draw inspiration from those AP finds. On the rare occasion that I do keep one for myself, I do my best to make a nice project out of it, like this. Both of the parents were AP catches. Or this one; I caught 2 2nd gens from the same breeder and made a pair out of them.

WHY WOULD ANYONE ABANDON AN AVATAR OF CREATION!? And with this linage too!

 

http://dragcave.net/lineage/RwBmT

Because I only need one child from each pair for a non-inbred lineage. smile.gif

 

I “massbred“ the whole lineage, so there should have been around 10 floating in the AP at roughly the same time.

 

 

Ps: You're welcome.
