Copper Dragon Breeding

Recommended Posts

That looks lovely!

 

@Vaati: Agreed. Guardians look very nice with them

 

*taps foot impatiently waiting for her Seragammas to grow up so she can try them with coppers*

Brown Copper x Red Copper= Red Copper, I believe with mixed color pairings they'll only breed one of the adult's colors. Will experiment with biome theory once my greens grow up xd.png

Heh. This was irresistible to try. Not sure I"m going to keep it though. Maybe I'll try to trade it for something.

 

male brown copper with female alt shadow walker = brown copper.

Oh, that's gorgeous. I really like the way the colors look together. But too bad the rest of us can't breed that exact pairing. laugh.gif

I just bred my pure Emerald Copper pair and got an egg, then I bred my Bronze/Flame copper pair (just my names for them) and also got an egg. smile.gif

 

Thank God they didn't refuse. lol

I decided to try male hellfire with plain (orange) copper female, since it's a combination I want for a rainbow even gen. Looks pretty spiffy. Got an orange copper egg from them.

So far I've bred a Green Copper to a Thunder (resulting in a Brown Copper egg) and a Bright Copper to an Ice (resulting in a Bright Copper egg).

 

...interesting.

 

I'll probably freeze the babies unless someone wanted them, I need to go back to freezing hatchlings anyway.

I really want more Coppers, but I don't see ANY in the biomes, wasn't it said they are NOT rare?

 

So far I bred green with brown, gave no egg rolleyes.gif and orange (bright?) with silver which gave an orange egg.

The demand for them will make them harder to find for a while--especially with people breeding them to see what breeding combinations will make what egg.

 

They might turn out to be falsely rare, like Blacks and Stripes were/are. And those were supposed to be commons, while I'm pretty sure Coppers are uncommon?

Here are some of the pairings I tried out:

 

M. Orange x F. Red Neb

M. Green x F. STD

M. RB x F. Orange

M. RC x F. Brown - This is the favorite pairing that I've tried. I think I might make a lineage with this one.

I love the one with the red neb and also the one that is your favorite. Both of those would make very pretty lineages. Sadly I don't have even one orange Copper male and it seems like it could take a very long time to get one.

They are just not dropping on the way I would expect for a non-rare. Yesterday, during a long "hunting session", paradoxically, I saw quite more Golds, Silvers and Blusangs than Coppers.

I didn't breed this pretty (caught it in a FFA) but it is a green copper x thunder and gave a brown copper.

So far I've bred a Gold x Verdigis and gotten a Brown (I was sadfacing, since I really wanted a verd from the pairing).

Also bred this:

 

http://dragcave.net/lineage/UKMPh

 

http://dragcave.net/lineage/QLd57

 

http://dragcave.net/lineage/BElTu

 

I noticed what appears to be an interesting pattern (if it is correct)

I bred this, and the egg above from green males x female golds

 

http://dragcave.net/lineage/rxWTK

 

Then I tried this and got a verdigis:

Is it possible that the egg takes after the color of the mother?

(edit: Thought it might be the case, as that was the pattern, right up until the red dorsal... No clue why that would be different, so I guess my hypothesis is out the window. :\)

Granted, I'm locked for awhile as I also need to take a hatchy delivery (squee!) but I'd be happy to blood swap with people wanting to do even gens. That's what we have to do with metals and holidays, after all. I have CBs of almost everything so feel free to pm if you want to set up something.

After my first pair, a tarnished x tarnished couple REFUSED sad.gif I'm tempted to try them with the new Seragammas. And I think they look good with Cavern Lurkers!

So are we still working out how these breed?

 

I've seen bright copper x bright copper produce a bright egg and tarnished x tarnished produce a tarnished egg. Anyone have a case of a PB copper egg being of a different color from its parents?

To me, it sounds like the color of the Copper egg depends on what biome the mate comes from. For dragons that can come from any biome (metallics, Holidays, etc) it's random.

 

 

Indeed. I bet if you breed two different colored Coppers it's random. Or maybe it's only one of the parents' colors. But it'd be cool to breed, say, a brown and an orange and get a green.

That was my theory when I heard someone wonder if it's based on the Biome.

Breeding true makes sense, but breeding different colors of Coppers might be a bit trickier to work through.

 

What if you breed a Copper with a dragon that comes from two or more Biomes?

OOOH! What if it depends on the Biome you actually caught it in? xd.png That would be so annoying because I doubt breeders keep lists of that. Otherwise, it sounds like it might alternate.

Such as Copper x Stripe could be verdigris or rainbow. Or the color of the Copper parent.

VICTORY! biggrin.gif

That lineage looked so pretty on the first page, I just couldn't wait to try it! xd.png

 

So... tl;dr - Verdigris x Whiptail = Verdigris biggrin.gif

That is really pretty!

 

There have been so many beautiful lineages posted. <3

 

I love the one with the red neb and also the one that is your favorite. Both of those would make very pretty lineages. Sadly I don't have even one orange Copper male and it seems like it could take a very long time to get one.

purplehaze, I feel your pain. I am in need of a Brown Copper female for my male. Maybe it is my eyesight xd.png but I have not seen any drop.
