Cave of Courtship

Recommended Posts

It looks like this event will have a lot to do with trying to do with courting a certain type of dragon. I say we should try to collect those descriptions we're getting once we set up our cave so that we can get the right gal!

 

The event is over, but if you'd still like to post it'd be interesting to see what the final ratios were that attracted the permanent mate.

 

Some people have adopted a sort of form to post their findings in, which will make organizing these much easier!

 

Day: day of event

Location: (Cave, Alpine, Coast, Desert, Jungle, Volcano) (You can see pictures of the locations in this thread)

My Dragon:

Visiting Dragon:

Interested Message: Try to always include a message that shows both of the things that the dragon is looking for

Item Ratio: (in the form Mana:Meat:Shinies:Sweets:Misc)

Attempts: Try to post as many combos as you can test, this helps narrow down the specifications for each mate

Notes and other Questions: Anything you find interesting, such as interesting item combos

 

If you don't have a lot to say in the questions at the end, don't feel pressured to answer them. If you've got lots of experiments and ideas swirling in your head though, write 'em out!

[b]Notes:[/b] Which are the primary/secondary/tolerated/repulsed items?
What was in your cave at the start of the day? Primary category/color? Category you had none of?

 

From Bugzilla:

If we want to analyze this easily, then I suggest the following relatively simple procedure:

1. Start with everything at 2-2-2-2-2.

2a. If the visitor likes the collection, then you can immediately derive the primary and secondary preferences, and you know that all 4 non-primary categories are tolerated.

The test can probably stop here for that breed.

2b. If the visitor is only mildly interested, increase the primary and have something like 2-2-2-2-3 (if the primary is the misc items).

Save the changes.

3. You will then know the primary and secondary preferences, but you still have to play with the other ones to check which ones are tolerated or not (= accepted at the same level as the primary)

4. Pick one of the 4 non-primary kinds of things, increase its number to 3 and save.

5a. If the visitor is still interested (not just mildly), then this is "tolerated/accepted/whatever-name-you-prefer". You can keep it at 3 and test the next one.

5b. If the visitor is only mildly interested, then remove the item that you have just added and increase the next category that you want to test.

6. Repeat step 4 for the 4 kinds of items that are not the primary preference.

With only a few tests, it should be possible to analyze quickly the breeds that we see.

Your dragons should match these. If they do not, or if you've attracted a new species please post it! And if you've been able to do any testing on the tolerate/repulse categories, this would be extremely helpful in differentiating dragons that have the same primary/secondary attractions.

 

________________________________________________________

I'll be keeping track of my own info in this post here, as an example.

Day: 1

Location: Cave

My Dragon: CB Skywing

Visiting Dragon: Nebula

Attempts:

  • 10-10-0-0-0 - She seems interested, but doesn’t stay long. It seems she liked the collection of mana, but left to find a dragon with more meat.
  • [9 or less]-10-0-0-0 - She seems mildly interested, but doesn’t stay long. It seems she left to find a dragon with more mana.
Notes: If I put too many of the other objects the ratio of magic items gets too small and the nebula gives me the "more mana" message as above. I have not been able to trigger any other breed to appear.

 

Day: 2

Location: Cave

My Dragon: CB Skywing

Visiting Dragon: Gold-horned Tangar

Attempts:

  • 10-10-0-0-0 - She seems mildly interested, but doesn’t stay long. It seems she left to find a dragon with more sweets.
  • 0-0-0-20-0 - She seems interested, but doesn’t stay long. It seems she liked the collection of sweets, but left to find a dragon with more miscellaneous items.
  • 0-0-0-[19 or less]-20 - She seems mildly interested, but doesn’t stay long. It seems she left to find a dragon with more sweets.
  • 0-0-0-20-20 - She seems interested, but doesn’t stay long. It seems she liked the collection of sweets, but left to find a dragon with more miscellaneous items.
Notes: Maxing out each number separately doesn't summon any other species.

 

Day: 3

Location: Cave

My Dragon: CB Skywing

Visiting Dragon: Deep Sea

Attempts:

  • 0-0-0-20-20 - She seems mildly interested, but doesn’t stay long. It seems she left to find a dragon with more shinies.
  • 0-0-[6 or more]-0-0 - A deep sea dragon comes to visit your dragon’s den. She seems interested, but doesn’t stay long. It seems she liked the collection of shinies, but left to find a dragon with more meat.
  • 0-30-[29 or less]-0-0 - She seems mildly interested, but doesn’t stay long. It seems she left to find a dragon with more shinies.
  • 0-30-30-0-0 - She seems interested, but doesn’t stay long. It seems she liked the collection of shinies, but left to find a dragon with more meat.
Notes: At just about every point, having more meat than shinies makes the visitor want you to have more shinies. Maxing out each number separately doesn't summon any other species.

 

Day: 4

Location: Cave

My Dragon: Skywing

Visiting Dragon: Balloon

Attempts:

  • 0-30-30-0-0 - She seems mildly interested, but doesn’t stay long. It seems she left to find a dragon with more sweets. (This is how I started the day.)
  • 0-0-0-[6 or more]-0 - She seems interested, but doesn’t stay long. It seems she liked the collection of sweets, but left to find a dragon with more miscellaneous items.
  • 0-0-0-[39 or less]-40 - She seems mildly interested, but doesn’t stay long. It seems she left to find a dragon with more sweets.
  • 0-0-0-40-40 - She seems interested, but doesn’t stay long. It seems she liked the collection of sweets, but left to find a dragon with more miscellaneous items.
  • 40-40-40-40-40 - She seems interested, but doesn’t stay long. It seems she liked the collection of sweets, but left to find a dragon with more miscellaneous items.
Notes: As before, maxing out any of the non-asked items by themselves did not bring a different dragon. I will probably stop doing this test because it is getting quite tedious lol. Other than that, it's pretty obvious we're still not supposed to get a mate we want yet. Also, I'm not quite seeing an effect of the other items on the message? Will possibly have to keep poking at that.

 

During all of these past ones, I've also just been picking an item at random and placing it the max amount of this, so there's pretty much only ever two types of items in my cave. Right now I've got the purple grapes for sweets and lime green scales for misc items.

 

Day: 5

Location: Cave

My Dragon: Skywing

Visiting Dragon: Black

Attempts:

 

40-40-40-40-40 - It seems she left to find a dragon with more mana. (does not like items equal)

41-40-40-40-40 - It seems she liked the collection of mana, but left to find a dragon with more meat.

41-41-40-40-40 - It seems she left to find a dragon with more mana. (repulsed by meat)

41-40-41-40-40 - It seems she liked the collection of mana, but left to find a dragon with more meat. (tolerates shinies)

41-40-40-41-40 - It seems she liked the collection of mana, but left to find a dragon with more meat. (tolerates sweets)

41-40-40-40-41 - It seems she liked the collection of mana, but left to find a dragon with more meat. (tolerates misc)

41-40-41-41-41 - It seems she liked the collection of mana, but left to find a dragon with more meat. (putting primary with all tolerated items gives the same answer)

I've got a pink dragon with 10/10 magic, 0/10 meat, 4/10 shinies, 3/10 sweets, 10/10 misc. I'm wondering if the proportion of your total items you have from each category makes a difference.

Well that's the only explanation for a dragon who keeps flip flopping to the point I have 10/10 of both things she wants but then says she wants more of the item I just removed.

I've got a CB lumina with 10/10 shinies and 10/10 meats, and currently 0 of everything else… If I subtract a shiny item, the description above changes so that it says she wants to find a dragon with more shinies…hmm.. lol xd.png

Using a GoN with 10 Mana, 10 Meat, 10 Shines, 1 Sweet, 10 Misc. ... It seems every time I remove a Mana or Meat, she immediately asks for it again. A little bit confused about the game, perhaps the results will come up later?

 

Edit: Perhaps tomorrow we'll have more items to add.

Same thing is happening to me. I have a Radiant Angel and he keeps attracting a Bleeding Moon. I have 10/10 of meats and misc. but she keeps asking for more of misc. and I can't give any more. sad.gif

 

Here's her quote: "A bleeding moon dragon comes to visit your dragon’s den. She seems mildly interested, but doesn’t stay long. It seems she left to find a dragon with more miscellaneous items."

 

If I take away from meat she asks for more of meat. Something's wrong here.

10 in each category with a GoN:

 

"A ember dragon comes to visit your dragon’s den. She seems mildly interested, but doesn’t stay long. It seems she left to find a dragon with more shinies."

 

I wish there was a faster way of removing the items from the cave instead of one by one. (unless there is and I'm just blind)

 

edit: 6 shinies and nothing else got me "It seems she liked the collection of shinies, but left to find a dragon with more meat."

 

6 shinies 7 meat "It seems she left to find a dragon with more shinies."

 

7 shinies 7 meat "It seems she liked the collection of shinies, but left to find a dragon with more meat."

 

These lady dragons sure are picky.

I don't see a way either.

 

By the way... Has anyone attracted a Nhiostrife so far? Or a Glaucus Drake?

same problem as everyone else. maxed out on what this fleshcrown wants, but take one away from one category, she doesn't seem interested. mad.gif so picky!

 

could it be the type of item? if so, that's way too many choices to try to make a dragon happy. sad.gif i'm wondering if the encyclopedia can be of any help, like the kind of sweets fleshcrowns like, and:

 

"They will collect large varieties of objects to collect in and around their nest and/or the chosen tree of their nest, and are particularly attracted to shiny and bright objects. These objects are also used as an alternate form of attracting mates."

 

not as much of a clue as i'd like. very frustrating.

 

maybe others will have more luck by viewing the encyclopedia?
