You can get CB Metals without catching them. I have never been able to catch anything more rare than an alt Ridgewing yet I have 6 CB Silvers. Only one of them is from a 2G Prize trade. The rest are from mass CB Halloween hatchling trades or the Market. But yes, they are hard to catch in the cave. That's why they're rare. It's definitely not impossible though because I see them all the time in trade threads--it just comes down to timing and luck. I don't think you should give up over this. There's so much more to DC than catching CB Metals.

 

By the way, rants should really go here:

In all my time playing, since 2008, I saw maybe 4-6 CB golds?

 

I have only ever caught my first CB gold last year, early dec. I took an egg and refreshed, behind the egg was him:

Dont think Ive ever caught my own Cb silver tho... I mainly got my good rares only cuz I got a CB prize to be honest. 

 

 Eventually it will happen, don’t give up! Even if you have to wait what, 10 years XD

I have spent the past week very out of it, dizzy to the point of being unsteady on my feet, couldn't go to work. All because of a new medication I started! And what's worse is that I used to take this exact medication over 15 years ago and it *never* gave me bad side effects at all! Did the ingredients/chemicals change? Was it just too big a dose too fast? Was it interacting with another of my meds? Ugh, it's just so frustrating! (And I know it was definitely that medicine because after emergency-contacting my doctor she told me to stop taking it immediately, and two days later I feel like 90% better.)

 

Also, as long as I'm here: GET OUT of my freaking head!!! It's been like 14 years, why can't I just forget about you? I've been in a much more serious, much longer relationship since you. Maybe it's just because I've been single for so long I've started thinking about what used to be? But our relationship wasn't exactly healthy. Especially after we broke up. ... I wonder if you'll just stay in my head forever, probably because of that one little sentence from you that meant nothing and everything. I haven't forgotten it. It's the first thing I think of when you come to mind. ... I miss you.

I am a scientific apprentice, and I need to do a project. As I seem to be collecting so much data on this particular subject, I may as well change my subject to: How many bad days at work must pass in a row until a bad day at work is just a day at work?

Might as well call them just a day at work now.

 

Why, oh, why do people want to dump messy, very common dragons in the AP.  I have gotten some good stuff, too, though, but I have to wade thru all the other stuff.

These mood swings can go climb a damn tree. I'm tired of being fine one moment and then explosive the next. My friends don't deserve it and I'm tired of dealing with it.

Why, oh WHY, can't we choose between a Tinsel or a Shimmer when we win in the raffle? I feel so freaking jealous at all these people with their shiny, pretty, lovely Shimmerscales while I'm stuck with the worst and the ugliest Tinsel I could've possibly won and the one I wanted the least. No, just because I won the raffle doesn't mean I should just shut up and accept what I have, I absolutely hate Tinsels because they look so ugly and boring compared to the much more interesting-looking Shimmerscales. And no, "dislike" is not nearly enough to describe how much I despise Tinsels. The sprite itself shows very little of the dragon's body, for all we know it could be a wyvern or a lindwurm or a poodle because we can't even SEE its body as it's all hidden behind the wing. Shimmerscales, on the other hand, show the dragon's entire body and it has much better posing and more colors than just one.

 

There's been more than just a small handful of times when I've seriously considered killing my CB Tinsel because I find their sprites so loathsome. I considered killing it shortly after receiving the message that I won, several times I considered killing it when it was growing, and right now I'm considering just stabbing it dead because I'm so jealous. If there's anything that is in dire need of a sprite update/change, it's the Tinsel. Or western Prize dragon or whatever the heck you want to call it.

>inb4 I get a warning for too much sprite bashing... <_<

And I would happily give it away in a heartbeat, but can't. Sure, the thing's given me lots of things I previously could only have dreamt of, like CB metals and my first Neglected (thanks to a friend), but... that's all it does. I don't even feel like building lineages with it because I dislike the Tinsel sprite so much. But with a Shimmerscale, I could be so much more interested in lineage building instead of just breeding for shinies and trading them away for whatever and cursing all the times I get nothing. :(

What would you trade for a second gen. 

It's frustrating when you have a dragon that you don't like (Tarantula for me).  I would get rid of it, but I want all the breeds so I'm stuck with it.

Stuff I can't really get on my own, like CB metals because I'm nowhere near patient enough to camp the biomes for metals, and whenever they DO spawn, I always miss them. But I've more or less grown used to it, and I like to joke that it's a Dragon Cave right of passage to miss a CB metal in the biomes. XD

On topic, the weather's going pretty nuts outside. This winter has been really terrible because I love love LOVE cold snowy winters... and we've had nothing but rain and gloom all winter like it's autumn round 2. Last summer was freaking terrible and I hope it doesn't happen again this year, but I have a bad feeling we'll be facing the same old horrendous heat waves we've had for the last two summers now... :dry:

You haven't had snow in Finland?  Wow!!

I can't camp out on the biomass either.  I lose patience.  I think I've only ever seen rares a couple of times.  I do have several Blusangs, but they weren't rare when they first came out.

I told you to try on blonde wigs if you wanted to go blonde, to see how the color would look on you. And then I told you if you didn't want to do that, when you were whining about it, to just get a few blonde streaks in the front to see how it would look, and if you liked it you could go to heavy streaking and then all blonde. But nooooo, you had your whole hair dyed light blonde and now you hate it.

Someone I am with in quarantine has such a negative attitude. Its starting to really bring me down. And when I have issues, thats nothing compared to theirs because I have a loving boyfriend.  He is amazing and I am darned lucky, dont get me wrong, but that doesnt invalidate the mental problems I am experiencing. Also, they seem secretly happy when I get upset that I cant see him. I want to be close to them, but this negativity is killing me.

HOW MANY ADMINS DO WE NEED AT FACEBOOK, ANYWAY??? Editors and Admins can do EXACTLY the same thing bar one thing and the ONE thing they cannot do, is not something the people you're insisting I make Admins even NEED to be able to do. And I REALLY DO NOT trust you to not then remove all the rest of us as Admins and make it impossible for us to do our jobs.

Putting this here on purpose... don't want to ruin anybodys celebration mood but get this off my chest..

 

Releasing 7 new breeds at once is bad enough.

But color mechanics AND hybrids in the mix?

And not enough eggs in the biomes at the actual birthday... especially after it had been found out what drops where. Why can't we have a flood instead of drops?

Yes, I know, they will be permanent. But if they become rare or something it will be even harder to get them in the future.

This just feels stressful and not like celebrating.

Sorry... but altogether I'd have rather less new breeds and more of our ideas implemented.

 

Edit/addition:

I have been told that they are easy to catch, even now, and it was just a matter of bad timing on my part? *shrug*

And I have been offered "spares" that some have caught/bred. Thank you very much for your kindness!

I can't believe I was that customer.

In my defense, my husband said he already rebooted the router when the problem started, and only today he remembered that there was an internet outage at that time and, if the router (and/or server it needs to connect to) are programmed badly, this might have caused it to be unable to connect to that server ever since. But I had to talk to the provider and try to explain again and again that if we can reach every server except for theirs, the problem really can't be our router... except that it was, because a (second) reboot fixed it.

Sigh.

I did not want to be that customer.

If there's one thing I've learn is you don't crap on your friend's doorstep. For someone to give you shelter, share their meal with you and then pull this? From stealing $50 out of someone's purse, to taking their foodstamp card. Taking all of an older lady's soda that she enjoys after she gave permission to just have ONE. And then to raid the fridge even when boxes and containers are labeled with people's names? And then to go and accuse people in the house of sleeping around and then coming onto them? It's clear that you need some serious rehab and therapy. 

 

And no. I don't give a flying turkey who you think you are, do not walking up and grab my side trying to tickle me. I'm only okay with friends and family giving me a hug or tickling to be funny. No effing stranger has a right to touch me. I don't know you, kindly back off.

 

I'm glad I locked my bedroom door. None of my stuff was taken, that I know of. Still enraged that the other girl had her purse raided. You don't EVER take advantage of someone's kindness like that.

Content warning: small animals with too many legs.


 

Spoiler

 

I'm in the storage room and I see a spider on the ceiling. Oh, two spiders. ... Four. And they're too high up for me to reach them with the spider catching device. But if I don't remove them, my husband will use the nearest vacuum cleaner to do it, and then there are spiders in my vacuum cleaner FOREVER. So I get a stepladder. Catch the first one, put it outside. Catch the second one, put it outside. Move the ladder to reach the third one.

There are... spots of dirt around it? ... With... LEGS???

THERE IS A VERY LARGE NUMBER OF VERY SMALL SPIDERS ON THE CEILING AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHRRGHHHHHHHHHH

I can't catch every single tiny spider baby. So. Do I wait for my husband and tell him to kill them with fire?

Nope. They have to go. Now. Dead or alive. So I take a more dispensable small vacuum cleaner.

"Sorry sorry sorry sorry aaaaaaaahhhhhh I'm sorry I'm sorry AAAAAAAAAHHHHHH WAAAAAAHHH"

Bring it outside, try to open it so whatever is inside now should fall out, but it doesn't open, so I freak out and just put it on the ground and go back inside.

I DID NOT WANT TO MURDER SPIDER BABIES BUT AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

If you have more than four legs, please do not have babies in my house.

What the frickity track with that customer today?! She knew that what she was doing was going to cause an error on the printers to the point where they'd need rebooted, but she did it anyway!!! Not just to one machine, nooooo. She had to do it to both! And then she had the AUDACITY to say the printing supervisor had explained to her last time why the errors occured. So she freaking knew! And then she just flippently (typo I know) said she was going to another store to print... AND DO THE SAME THING THERE! Of all the inconsiderate and selfish things to do! And, dear reader, nobody could use the machines for hours until I had a chance to sit on the phone with helpdesk to figure out how to reboot the damn things while running back and forth helping customers at the same time because I was the only print associate! This is why I say I hate people. ūüė§

You self-centered POS. No one can have a civil conversation with you, because as soon as someone brings up things you've done you right away, shout, try to make yourself look bigger and deflect blame by pointing out someone else's flaws instead of OWNING UP to the hole you've dug, not just for yourself, but your whole family! You're blaming everyone else, when you are using them as a shield.

 

What they've done.... all the things you've pointed out are mistakes. YOU did it because "Eff them. it's their problem." When it really reads: "Eff them, it's their problem, even though I'm the only reason they're in that **** hole to begin with."

 

Blaming me is where you royally mess up. No. I don't leave soda bottles in the van. I'm not the only one who drinks that brand. I also don't drink that brand of tea, I don't touch energy drinks and I always use bottles, never cans. You can't reseal a can, a bottle has a nice cap, plus more soda. It's pretty bad when there's so much garbage under the seat that I can't adjust it. None of that is mine. And neither is that dirty diaper sitting in the back seat! wtaf? WHY?!

 

Yes, two weeks ago I left two trash bags downstairs by the door. Why didn't I take them out? Easy!

- 1: I was sick, had been emptying my guts out all day long and had no energy drag my rear to the bathroom, much less take out trash.

- 2: It was off to the side in the corner and the worst bag was placed behind the normal trash bag. So if anyone did come across it they wouldn't grab the gross one first.

- 3: it was 4 AM when I brought it down. Yes, neighborhood may be safer here. Awesome! Great! But when you've lived 25 years of your life in an area where it's not safe for a girl to step outside at night and I'm too sick to know what day it even is then auto pilot kicks in full gear.

- 4: No. it was not there for 2 or more days. Why? Because M'ah never even saw them and she comes in on the days you mentioned them sitting there. She saw nothing. It was there for less than 12 hours.

- 5: I don't expect someone to pick up after me, and would have dealt with it when I was feeling better. I thank you for taking it out, but I fully intended to do so myself once I had regained enough strength to actually do it.
