Hello! I've been away from DC for 4 years now, so bear with me. Can..can we now have more than 2 Christmas/Valentine dragons of each breed, just only 2 caveborns????

Yes! We can collect unlimited bred holiday dragons. During Halloween this year a new biome opened up for the first time to allow collection of past CB Halloween breeds, so we're all waiting to see what happens for Christmas!

Only 2 CBs, but there is no limit on bred eggs.

The miscommunication in this thread is a good example of people not listening.

Two accounts were given of people breeding a pair for the first time during the holiday, without fertility.

The second time they went to breed the pair, after the holiday, even with fertility, they refused. 

 

The idea is that though you don't need fertility to produce eggs on the holiday, you may very well need to do it to prevent a future refusal if it's the first time you've ever bred the pair.

 

I'm going to assume you don't mean me, because my reading comprehension is impeccable.

 

Anyone who doesn't understand that just because you bred a pair during a holiday week doesn't mean they'll play nice after, even with Fertility, needs more help than I can provide them. As I made very clear in my last post, holiday breedings are irrelevant to anything attempted outside of them, with special regard to untried pairs.

That's how it *should* be, at least.

Since we don't have any insights on the underlying coding, seeing multiple examples of Fertility failing to prevent a refusal in a very specific set of conditions (aka the first breeding being an in-season breeding without Fertility applied) might point to a bug. Considering that the refusal mechanics have been changed a couple of times in the past years, there's always the possibility of something having been missed. That's something only TJ could tell for sure.

People have been reporting refusals of normal/ non-turpentine breeds after fertility as well. Proof: 

Edit: correct quote since editing quotes is weird on mobile.

 

So perhaps mechanics have just changed. It still doesn't mean people aren't understanding/listening or that it's only specific to holidays.

I know about those, don't worry. But the number of common everyday breedings is probably slightly larger than the number of holiday/newmate breedings. Seeing how low the overall chance at Fertility failure seems to be, the number of failings in such a specific circumstance seems suspicious to me. But, as I say, there is only one person who would know for sure, and he won't even notice this issue if none of those affected makes a glitch thread for it.

That's true.  Hopefully someone makes one or @TJ09 pops in here to confirm how fertility works.

 

Maybe the mention will work. I know TJ does answer TLQ's sometimes.

Yes. Unless TJ ever reveals specifics, a theoretical knowledge of refusal mechanics is all we have to base inferences and suppositions on.

 

Let's hope he sees this.

I noticed that when they first came out. I suspect it came from the creator? lady lyzar said at the time that the colour was indigo.

Historically it has been the 19th. No reason to think it will change this year. That allows a week of breeding including Christmas Day.

Thanks! I'm not meaning to impose a date, purple haze! It's an honest mix up, which is why I was asking.

No, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to imply that you were.

Are they any threads discussing patterns in egg drops? I don't necessarily mean only timing but more like if there's any trends for rarity of drops increasing/decreasing, and really just more information about drops in general. All I've been able to find so far was one thread discussing different methods of catching rare eggs.

Here are two:

They are out of date though, so you may want to make a new thread. :3
