Prize Breeding

Recommended Posts

There are a lot of new prize winners lurking around and a lot of them are deciding what pairing to come up with first. What is your favorite pairing? What is your least favorite? Post examples here.

I like silver prizes best with Guardians. This 3G I bred shows off both. Click me! In fact, Guardians look good with all prizes. Please breed guardians with everything.

 

However, Undine and Solstice are also super nice with Silver prizes.

 

Bronze Tins look really good with Spessartines, but a word of warning: as Pyralspites are a relatively new breed they'll be painful to get a prize out of. Also, Despips look good with Bronzes of both breeds.

 

As for gold prizes, I think GoNs, Radiant Angels, and Nebulas are the best fit. Blue and green nebs for Shimmers, red and purple for Tins.

I didn't win any prize, but I'll share my ideas anyway laugh.gif

 

So I imagine Silver prizes with female Daydreams or male Storms - Silver linings on clouds! xd.png

 

I could also imagine them with all sorts of Seasonals, e.g. Gold prizes with Winters, Silver prizes with Springs and Summers ...

 

Also, Gold-horned Tangars, female Fleshcrownes and Nhiostrifes, and female Waterhorses with Gold and Silver prizes! laugh.gif

Not a winner, but my favourite prizes are probably silver tinsels.

I especially love them with reds, royal blues and gold wyvern. I would also love to see a lineage with earth dragons.

 

Silver prizes would probably look great with pyralspites too (pyral look great with almost everything!) but the problem with newer dragons is that it's almost impossible to have the mate's breed out of them.

I very much agree with this. I would love to see a male silver Shimmer x female blue Undine line!

If I ever won, which I by now do not believe will happen, I'd breed them with every other breed to get a 2nd Gen from every breed, then I'd go from there...

Not a winner, but:

 

bronze tinsels -> graves, purples, nebulas, alt vines

silver tinsels -> graves, brutes, falconiforms, almandines

gold tinsels -> sunset, pebble

Also not a winner but my favorite combo has to be Female Bronze Shimmer X Male Gold Wyvern mainly because I love the GW sprite so as far as I'm concerned he looks good with anything.

I dug up this doc from an old thread that has links to number of shimmer and tinsel lines: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/13li...crLI/edit#gid=0

 

Silver Tinsels are my favourite and look good with nigh on everything. I'd really like a silver/almandine EG lineage. Dreams are free tongue.gif

 

I think Gold is the hardest colour to pair with, but I like the Shims with Radiant angels, Turps, Waters, Green Coppers. Reds. Royal Crimsons. Gold. A lot of things are OK, but there are few things that make me go wow.

 

Bronze is lovely, and goes with a lot of things. Pillows are especially nice I think.

 

I'm not a fan of Blusang with any of the prizes despite how often it seems to be bred; I don't think the colours really go with any of them very well.

 

EDIT: I second breed Guardians with everything!

My favorite would be Silver Shimmer on Alt Blacks because of my proposed shimmer code (AbSoL)

Very cool to see everyone's opinion on this; thank you!

 

Personally I think nebulas look great with every prize-- the metallic plus the black with bright bits makes the lineage look like precious metal studded with jewels. Some examples...

 

One day I'll make a non-inbred version of this

For sheer prettiness, this is my favorite prize line

Works well with tinsels, too!

I absolutely agree! I'm so into the nebulas (given their alts now) they just simply look fabulous with every prize. ^^

Also not a prize winner, but I like coppers with all the prizes. Gold prize x red copper, silver or bronze prize x green copper. Brown coppers look really good with either bronze or gold prizes. (In my somewhat prejudiced opinion)

Posting this here for anyone who wasn't following the raffle thread:

Thought this might be helpful for prize owners (and those who get to request 2Gs from their choice of mate) who are trying to decide what to breed their babies to when they get them smile.gif

 

I've done this for myself before, where I photoshop one breed (usually a prize or silver/gold metallic) with 10 - 20 of my favorite breeds to create a visual that helps me easily see which ones look best together...but I decided it might be useful for other people to see the prizes (both types, all three colors) with every possible breed combination. It took awhile (good lord, I didn't realize there would be roughly 120 possible combos O_O) but I'm pretty sure I'm finally finished! tongue.gif

 

I'm a bit particular about everything needing to be the same except for the non-prize mate, so ignore the fact that all the prizes seem to be named 'Hypnotizing' and that I didn't change the direction of the stair for certain genders that would normally only be able to go the other way. The charts are just meant to be a visual for people to see how the color combinations look.
