Do we breed Christmas dragons on December only?

Specifically, from 19th to 25th of December, to get new christmas eggs.

Some of the old christmas breeds may be harder to come by, but generally, the holiday biome (visible in the same week) should provide all the caveborns you need.

Christmas dragons only breed true during their one-week breeding season in December. You can breed them with other breeds of dragon all year, but will only get the mate's breed of offspring.

The Holiday biome will have all the old breeds of Christmas dragon available, but some may be in more demand and therefore be harder to catch.

You can breed them with other dragons all year round but its harder and will only produce the Dragon paired with it say Gold x Starsinger, will breed a Gold all year until the Breeding week of Christmas. It depends on what you are trying to catch, this year I was trying to grab a single Omen since I was missing 1 for a pair, took me almost the whole release period to grab it - since a lot of people were also trying from missing some from last year. I forget if Christmas has a Biome like Halloween, but as long as you have patience you can catch them!

Is there a simple way to find out which dragon breed I don't have yet? My scroll says 239 breeds, according to Wiki there are 241 released. I do not have a Neglected, but thought I had everything else at least once. 

So is there a way to find out? Thanks.

Unfortunately I don't think there is a fast/easy way to do that, the best way I know of is to sort your scroll by breed and then go through and check against the Encyclopedia to see what is in the Encyclopedia that you don't have. (Just fyi, as of this new release there is now 243 breeds.)

It's usually the 7 days leading up to the 25th. Or something. You can easily check if the breeding season for Holiday dragons has arrived by looking at a leetle tree. If it turns into a Christmas tree like Leetle_Tree.gif, you can breed the Winter Holidays. (It is easy to mix up with the regular winter tree, which looks like this: Winter_Leetle_Tree.gif When the leetle winter tree turns up, the breeding season is over.)

And, just in case you don't have a leetle tree of your own, here's a link to mine: Reucu.gif  (Currently in autumn form.)

I just hid one of my posts - there wasn't anything bad in it, I just realized I'd jumped into a discussion that I didn't want to engage in. Which got me curious - what actually happens to hidden posts? I can't see it now to edit it or anything. Is it deleted?

They are just hidden from public view. I suspect that mods could still check them if someone had reported a post before it got hidden, but to the regular user, they are as good as deleted.

I know for a fact that mods can see hidden posts and even restore them if they wish. But no one else, including yourself, can see them.

So, I just had a refusal despite using fertility on one of the dragons before breeding them - wasn't fertility meant to prevent such things from happening? Fortunately, I can replace the mates, but it's still frustrating...

It GREATLY reduces the chances but doesn't set them to zero  I've had almost no misbehaving since taht change in the mechanics but it's not impossible :(

I can only recall one refusal after fertility since that was changed (and I breed a lot of new pairs), but as Herk says it is not 100% guaranteed.

Other refusals that still always happen:

 

- neutral-element holiday + GoN

- holiday + holiday (of course you knew that)

- holiday + something else which had refused prior to an earlier holiday breeding week already

@stagazer_7 Was one of the dragons a Turpentine?

@Confused Cat No, a Solstice and Lunar herald, I'm working on some holiday lines before the big holiday breeding week starts. ;)

 

Also thanks for the answers @Herk@Ruby Eyes and @purplehaze! :)

What happens if you EQ a sunrise/sunset egg outside the hatching window? Does it always just die/do nothing or can it actually hatch.

The one thing it will not do is hatch.

I saw a Vampire dragon that had a lineage which usually means another Vampire bit it. However, there’s no “bitten by” anywhere on the dragon’s profile. Does this mean the one who bit it was released into the wild? Or, is it a glitch?

Bitten by came in only a couple of years ago. Anything bitten before then, it doesn't show.

This one of mine was bitten by another of mine, but it doesn't say so.

LOL, "a couple of years ago", as in around 9+ plus retroactively for anything bitten around 9.75 years ago. Considering the Bite BSA came out around 10 years ago, that's like most of the time. :lol:

As a matter of fact, I can pretty much pinpoint when the change to display "bitten" lineages got into effect:

 

@Solaries I have one vampire that was bitten on March 18, 2010. She has no "bitten by" entry. (I'm 90% sure she was my first successful bite, that lady is my 2nd vampire.) https://dragcave.net/view/0kr8

I also have one vampire that was bitten somewhere between March 27 (egg laid date) and April 1 (hatching date) of the same year, and he has a "bitten by" entry. https://dragcave.net/view/BPO8

 

The 2nd one's sire, https://dragcave.net/lineage/iPGO, is one of those vampires with a lineage, but no "bitten by" entry. The reason is simple: The dragon was bred (thus the lineage), but bitten before "vampire lineages" were acknowledged and put down in the database. If you actually look at that lineage, you'll find that there's no other vampire in there, it's just a regular lineage, which even lets you guess at its original breed - either stone, green or geode. Since geodes were pretty rare back then, it was probably a geode-fail.

The Bitten by stats were implemented in Dec. 2010, two years after the Vamps first appearance in the cave. TJ had to import the data for anything bitten before that date manually:

It's not just your tablet. Pings behave oddly and sometimes don't want to leave. :rolleyes:
