Are all the CB holly dropping from the holiday cave male? I thought those were the only ones you can have male and female, both precogged male before trying again want to make sure I am remembering right and can have a male and female :P

 

The hollies that are picked up in the holiday biome are male only, sorry. You can influence bred hollies to be either gender though!

you can only have 2 CB it seems, can grab as many bred ones as you like it appears ;)

 

Thx. I can't believe that amazing things in the AP. All so beautiful. Happy Hunting and Merry Christmas.

Like how caveborns are given CB in their name, and 2nd/3rd gens 2G and 3G, what would a market bought dragon get in their name? I'm considering buying a tercorn to add to the mix if they do in fact get a unique little add-on code.

Uh, CBs/2G/etc don't get anything special like that in their code? And neither do Market eggs. If you are talking about CB/etc designators in a specific dragon's actual *name*, that's put there by the owner of that dragon, it doesn't happen automatically. Not everyone puts that sort of thing in their dragon's names, but if they do it's a choice, not automatic.

I'm entirely aware. I wanted to know if there was a community agreed upon code for market bought eggs. I see that the usage of code can be confusing because codes are also what are given to dragons upon generation and are in the url.

Hmm, I'm not sure if there is a general add-on for Market dragons. I haven't seen anything like 'M' at the end or whatever, though I have see Market dragons have 'CB'. I believe a lot of people simply see them as CB, since they don't have a lineage.

When do Fire-gems gender? I'm still trying to get a male hatchling sprite to freeze, and Every time it seems like they grow up before reaching the gendered hatchling state. Right now the one I'm watching is at 4 days 17 hours left.

Fire gems need more views than regular dragons, so they'll gender later. Mine usually hit less than 5 days before doing so while my regulars usually gender at 5 and a half days left. I recommend adding yours to more hatcheries to give it a boost. Hatchies are durable, they won't get sick at under 5 days unless they hit 9k+ views.

i've heard that market eggs can't be traded.  are there any other details like that that are specific to market eggs?  is that the only difference between market and caveborn eggs?

Yep. Otherwise they behave just like a CB egg. Oh, and they have "market" for the location on their view page instead of a biome or "cave".

Just for completion's  sake - 'market' behaves like 'cave' when it comes to biome-related breeding (looking at you Coppers :dry:) read neutral. So market eggs allow for lineages that were impossible before.

Success, in my experience, is way below 25%. Failure is definitely way higher than that, at least twice as likely as a success. And "no effect" is somewhere along the same line, maybe above?

 

I only tried it once, I think. No success, two or three broken eggs.

 

Let me give you a counter-offer: I have 6 ER eggs close to hatching (3rd stage of cracking, I think). I'd love to Incubate for you as I have more than enough Reds available. :)

Thank you, dear Olympe! You've been more helpful than I could've ever wished for :)

mischief managed, i looked on the wiki... that's some confusing stuff with those coppers!! :blink:

Now I know what I'm going to breed my Hollies to next year! :wub: That and Tan Floret x Starsinger.

so, i summoned my first Sinomorph!

 

which leads me to ask - can another set of zyus be bred, so that i might summon another one?

also, since this Sino is a female, if i summon another one and it's a male, can they breed with each other, or only other breeds?

 

sorry, so many questions! :)

Yes, another set of six will summon another sinomorph.

Gender is ... unpredictable. ( I had five males before getting a female.)

Yes, two sinos can breed together, resulting in a random colour zyu.

yep!  time to get another set of six... heh. after xmas, though. XD

i saw somewhere...maybe the wiki?  that it might somehow kinda maybe could be based on the ratio of m:f of the 6 in the set.  but it's not a scientific thing.  so..... random. XD

Its supposed to be based on the gender of zues used, but 1. You cant pick which ones and 2. I'm one of multiple examples that had all but one zue one gender but got a sino of the solitary one. ( in my case 5/6 were female but I got a male.)

thanks @DragonLady86! yep, that sounds like random to me.  i had only 6 zyus when i summoned - 3 male, 3 female.  i got a female.  with my next batch of 6, i'm going to influence them so i have 3 & 3 again, and we'll see what happens. XD 

 

also, i LOVE your avi =^..^=

I bred several eggs and it asked me which one I wanted to keep. I chose an egg; at least I thought I did, but now when I try to add it to hatcheries or view it in my list of eggs, it does not appear. I am worried it will autoabandon at the end of the hour, but I thought I kept it. Is there anything I can do? 

 

ETA: Oh my gosh. I solved it. I thought I had kept it, but apparently I hadn't ... I somehow muddled about and found the page and clicked Keep and entered my password. I almost lost that entire holiday clutch! Must pay more attention next time. 

 

ETA: For future reference, and because I forgot how I managed to access the "Keep" command the second time, does anyone know how to find the "Keep" command if one doesn't use "Keep" immediately after breeding? I know we only have an hour, so not a lot of time to choose "Keep." But I have already forgotten how I got there. :blush:
