Tiny Little Questions

Recommended Posts

A good rule of thumb is that the more common it is the easier it hatches. I've noticed a lot of easy breeds hatch quickly, although I'm afraid I can't name any in particular. In contrast less common breeds seem more average and prizes / GONs (and luminas, vain little twits!) require way more than usual. I also know from firsthand experience that ND eggs require more views than normal eggs to hatch.

 

Kinda makes me wonder if, except for those few rares, the hatching ease of different breeds is adjusted based on their current ratios.

Thanks for the input! I've noticed that a dragon's rarity is a definite factor in how easily it hatches. Even then, commons themselves do differ, such as black capped teimarrs and water horses. Teimarrs hatch with low to medium amount of views and Water horses can hatch with very, very few. I feel inclined to experiment with egg hatching ratios needed for different breeds now...

Hm. Are you sure? In my experience, Deep Seas sit on the harder end of the spectrum, as do avatars. Waterhorses are the only soft ones that come to mind, but other ultracommons (Spitfire, Gray, Green, Water, maybe Whiptail) sit somewhere in the middle.

 

I'm also not sure about ND eggs. Perhaps the ones you're getting have higher time than the ones I'm used to (Stun?), but mine hatch around 100 UV at 1d even.

Regarding NDs, I've seen several reports and at least two occasions where an egg (non-prize) turned - and the cracking stage went backward by one or even several steps. However, the one case of a turned prize egg that I had was the exact opposite - the moment the egg turned, the cracking stage jumped forward by one or two steps. (The second step may have happened a second or so after the turning, I think.)

IME, NDs hatch at higher UVs than regular eggs, which is why the cracking sequence reverses when a "normal" egg turns, but Prizes (and, I think, Avatars) turn with higher stats that are roughly equivalent to what would hatch an ND - indeed, I've seen neglected Prize eggs go from a barely cracked Prize egg to an ND hatchie without ever showing an intermediate ND egg stage.

Ah. Yes, this happens (x both). Serves me right for posting while tired, I was comparing 1d ND stats to 4d normal egg stats.

Also yep. 80-100 UVs on a prize are enough to jump to s4-hatch ND. It's probably the coolest thing in the game to watch since it happens so fast.

 

If breeding is the 25th to the 31st, is that when the event will start?

The event itself usually starts on the 25th, yes. Breeding starts on the 25th. The new CB Halloween drop is only on the 31st.

If I have a refusal between a holiday and non-holiday, will they still be able to breed if I go from the holiday's page during the breeding season?

 

(I accidentally clicked on a Candelabra mate for my Caligene while setting up mates and they refused.)

if they're still on cooldown for this years halloween then no you cant breed them this year. you would have to wait until the next holiday. but just so you know they'll only be able to breed during the holidays, the refusal will stay with them for every nonholiday day

Is the "Revive" action available for all the time that a dead hatchling stays on the scroll, or only for 24h (the period it still count as a living creature on your scroll)?

It's there as long as the tombstone is there (two weeks)

Yes, if you go from the Caligene to the breeding page they'll be breedable during Halloween (after they came off cooldown).

They won't be on cooldown for the entire breeding period. It lasts a full week, guaranteeing one and only one breeding for every pair. Zeditha will just have to wait out the breeding cd.

oh its just on forum time when he posted it the time stamp was 11 pm

You haven't ticked the Daylight Savings Time box then in your board settings! xd.png

My Controls --> Board Settings --> Tick the top box. That should set your board time to cave time.

Has anyone noticed that the Halloween treats are spawning every second? I somehow managed to catch one after the other, even though they are supposed to appear every minutes or so.

 

Edit:Seems to have been fixed.
