Zombies can be re-named.  but dead dragons can not.  Remove ALL names before you you kill because if it doesn't revive that name is lost forever.

Thanks for the Info... though I am not sure WHY actually dead dragons occupy names?

Would make sense if they were stripped of their names about the time their tombstone would disappear?

 

Will bear in mind, tho...maybe leave zombie fodders unnamed til after the deed is done.

No idea, but it sucks.  Feel free to add your support here:

 

Though, that version is two years old and no response, and I know it wasn't the first time it was asked.  :(

Maybe if I bump it it will attract notice... I may do.

Have the ratios for Golds been tweaked, or have I just been extraordinarily lucky lately? I have bred three Golds since late September, all from pairs I'd been breeding for a while (two pairs gave me the first Gold since January, the other one was from a fairly new pairing, from July). Well, I'm not usually that lucky (no complaints, though XD), so I was wondering if others noticed it, too. I was also wondering if the ratios might have been adjusted because of the new possibility of Market Golds, but I really don't know enough about ratios.

I'm not sure. I seem to have had more luck breeding them lately, too. And the Gold marketplace price just came down 200 shards or more. I was able to buy my second market Gold this week well before I expected.

So how do people know when eggs they've bred are going to arrive on the AP, anyway? It makes no sense to me. When I look at an egg on there now it says it was laid yesterday, but has 5 days 3 hours left. How does that happen? If the person had kept it it would have 6 days 3 hours left, wouldn't it? Does it automatically go down a day upon being abandoned, does it go down more over time, something else?

Very very early yesterday and a whole lot later today, kinda ?

I checked another egg of slightly less time in the AP and it was born on the 14th, so the ones currently in the AP were made very early on the 15th. Between the beginning of the 15th and the end of the 16th (or the beginning of one day and the end of another), that's 47 hours and 59 minutes, so nearly 2 days. The AP doesn't change any times on eggs; what you see is exactly what time it has left. 

 

People don't really know when the eggs will show up in the AP because the current visible hours can change drastically due to walls or breeding droughts, so I'd assume they'd just track the egg's page and check every once in a while to see if it's getting close or not.

No. The timer no longer adds or removes an hour. What you see is now always the actual time left wherever the egg is. So you check when you bred and compare that to the AP times and hope you're in the right place at the right time.

I usually temporarily bookmark the egg I am looking for. Then it is easy to check its time against the eggs in the AP. You still need to check pretty often because the rate that eggs move in the AP can vary widely depending on the eggs that are there and the number of people hunting.

I don't see why they wouldn't be able to? They are regular wyrm dragons, nothing special that would stop them from being zombified (the way unbreedables can't, for example).

Frankly, I've just never tried to zombify newer breeds, except for zyus, and those always went western even though they were wingless/lundwyrm etc, so I thought maybe newer breeds have some glitches, that prevent them from acting like older breeds, instead of wasting kill slots on rifts, figured I'd better ask around XD

I think the reason for the Zyu problem is that they are all lumped as one breed, in spite of their differences and I believe they are listed as western in the encyclopedia. Other single new breeds should not have that problem.

Edit: I just checked the encyclopedia and they are just listed as "dragon" under their type.

LOL, you're right, it only says dragon indeed XD

 

Hopefully my rifts will play nice.... and go zombie :)

 

Thanks for the help!

Has anyone seen TJ last week? 

I had sent him some important things week ago and I didn't get any reply.

If you mean for trick or treat - others have also said they have heard nothing. But it was one per user, so "things" won't all have made it.

I didn't mean trick or treat, but thank you for info 😆

I'm just getting a little bit worried about it but maybe I should be more patient....

Is it just me, or are adult Yulebuck sprites not showing up on scrolls?  I'm trying to name my backlog of unnamed dragons, and I'd like to be able to see whom I am naming. XP (granted, it may be a while before I get to Yulebucks, but still...)

If you have adblock then it's blocking them because of the "ad" in their image name. This happens once in a while because the image names are frequently randomized.

...huh.  Weird.  Oh well, I just disabled my adblockers on DC and it fixed it.  Still not seeing ads though, oddly, but I'm not complaining. XP

I have a question about sorting my dragons.

I am thinking about sorting either breed sort or rainbow sort and wanted to know if the dragons are sorted in order of cb, then 2nd gens and so on?

Any help is appreciated as I have way too many dragons to manually sort now.

It is usually by age with the occasional glitch when you least expect it!

Thank you, not the answer I was hoping for but I guess it makes sense.
