question: why kill instead of abandon?

Kill - you are stuck with the egg taking up a slot for at least 24 hours

Abandon - you only have to wait a few hours to free up a slot

 

To provide an example of what HM said: I am making a very specific lineage that recreates the Ptolemaic Dynasty. When my dragons give me the wrong breed egg, I don't want to just abandon it because it's going to create siblings that shouldn't exist, going out to someone else's scroll, being named something non-conforming and possibly having offspring that shouldn't be related to mine. So I kill it (specifically viewbomb it, that takes less than 24 hours and doesn't steal my kill slots).

HM: no clue, people on the Discord noticed this too but idk where it came from

Are we on sunrises or sunsets right now? I thought sunset, but I forgot DC time, so I think it might hatch sunrise? In the next 30 mins

Nothing can hatch right now.  Sunrise is between 6am and 12pm (noon) and Sunset is 6pm to 12am (midnight).

Oh. Thanks, good to know. They always have confused me.

If you are using the DC default skin, you can click the clock at the top, otherwise go to Help => Time Reference

That page tells you "The sun is rising." or "The sun is setting." when these eggs can hatch (and into which type), and it says nothing to that regard when they cannot hatch at all.

Okay, I understand the mysterious purple Siyat and how to make them, but I am confused on green.

Incubate. Hatch before it gets 3 days old.

Is there a website that can automatically check your breeds of dragons? Like a auto-checklist or it should be done manually? There are so many dragons now and I want a pair of each.

Sort your scroll by breed (temporary sort using the drop-down.)

Copy the list from the wiki of which egg is which, and match to that. There is nothing that will do it automatically.

Websites cannot check at all, since the API does not return the breed :(

In the trading hub, there is no magma dragon option when searching for a breed..I've wanted a magma for a long time and I can't complete my legendary trio due to this :( Is there any fix

You can't have unlocked it in your encyclopaedia. it shows fine for everyone who has done so. You can only search for things that you've unlocked. Time to do some viewing in the fan sites :)

So I just caught a Pink on the AP, though after checking its lineage, I noticed something interesting, it comes from an Aria x Lunar Herald. Now I didn't know Arias could still breed Pinks, but my question is, how rare is it for Arias to breed Pinks? Because my Pink's father seems to have a lot of Pink children, so I'd say its not that rare, I could be wrong tho. But is there like a market for these Pinks? Because imo its an interesting lineage (its second gen) so if someone might be willing to trade for it I would gladly trade, I don't care for the lineage really, I just want it for the BSA.

 

Disclaimer: I'm not posting to offer the egg, I'm posting to ask if you know about being a market for this Pinks so I can trade it with someone who will appreciate the lineage.

Uncommon but not exactly RARE. I'd trade you a different pink for it, for one (but I'm locked !) So yes, there could well be a market.

Well if you want it, I see no problem on trading it, just PM me whenever you get the chance to breed one :)

Killing an egg has a very small chance to instantly hatch it, although it's so rare that most people don't bother.

It does? :blink: I never knew that was a thing. I try my hardest not to kill my eggs, and it only happens when my vampires get clumsy. I thought that only happened with the Earthquake BSA, which I've also never used, because I don't want to risk all the eggs on my scroll.

It is called forcing and is based on this part of the egg description: Unborn dragons are actually physically mature and ready to hatch early on in their development cycle. However, they choose to remain in the safety of their own egg rather than leave it. If a developed dragon is forced out of the security of its egg, it may try to run away or hide.

 

In reality, it is even riskier than Earthquake, I think, and has its best chance of working if an egg is nearly at the point of hatching anyway. Also, note from that quote that even if forcing manages to hatch the egg it may run away off your scroll -- similar to the Vampire bites that succeed but send the egg to the AP.

Anyone have any idea why Valley Sherwood has an unusually large number of ERs today? Currently over 1,300 ERs, I've *never* seen that many in there unless it was during a new release. I've clicked a good number of them and they all are legit ERs so it's not that the site is glitching... I'm just curious if there was some forum breeding/grabbing event that might account for the unusual number?

That is odd - Valley Sherwood usually has more ERs than other fansites in my experience, but that is a pretty big number to see outside the Holidays. There is a breeding event going on (the Blocker Breeding Bonanza in the trading forum) but I don't know if that is playing a part in it?

I doubt the BBB is having that much of an effect on the number of ERs. And oddly, the AP times have crept up, which should mean fewer ERs, not more. Although it could take longer to incuhatch a 4d 19h egg than a 4d 4h one, so maybe they are just staying in the ER longer. Still, that is a lot. AoND only has 113 eggs and 6 hatchies and Silvi's has 127 eggs and 25 hatchies.

I have a frozen hatchie that was forced out of it's shell that I caught from the AP. If you freeze them they keep the description of being forced.
