Tiny Little Questions

Recommended Posts

CB Staterae are definitely the most wanted thing for trading these days. Neglecteds in general are still traded for CB Golds and Silvers as well (looks like the current trades expect multiples if offering CB Metals), but almost everyone wants CB Staterae due to how hard they are to find after release. Other rarities like amazing codes are still highly desirable, most folks who are good at making NDs tend to have all the CB stuff they really want so one-of-a-kind coded dragons have a special appeal. The only former 'rare' thing I've noticed actually falling out of favor are Prizes - even 2nd gens don't seem to command anything like they used to unless you have a rare combo (like a purebred Prize). I won a Tinsel back in March and all her offspring either grow up on my scroll or are gifted away/raffled cause I can never find a swap for them.

Why is there a Spriters Alt Sakuhana in the Wild? 😭 And how many other Spriter Alts are Wild? I just saw someones lineage and it threw me off. 
 

~Thanks for the responses 🙂. I was super curious since that was such a new dragon

If it's alted and in the wild, it was probably released by the spriter. Maybe they quit DC, some people release their dragons when they don't plan on coming back.

 

Wild spriter alts are extremely rare though, since once TJ gives the artist their specific alts - I don't believe they can ask for him to do so again. It seems to be a 'one and done' action. Snow Angel alts might be different as they are scroll coded.

Last year the artist released both sakus after breeding one or both to the ap to pick up some regulars. I think they originally intended to keep one to have one of each but changed their mind. There's one omen that's wild too but I think that's it as far as I know? Most people don't toss their dragons when they quit because they know they might come back. Also it just takes forever.

 

I remember being curious and noticing one (not all) of the snow angel artists has All the snow angels on their scroll as salts, so I'm not sure its as one and done as we might think. Marri has a couple bred pumpkins alted too. Could've knocked me over when I came across one of those lol.

Marri's non-CB pumpkin alts are because when the pumpkins were released, there was no such thing as Spriter alts - that only happened with the later release of the Snow Angels (which was a surprise to their artists as well). So all her pumpkins were normal sprites, until a later time (2013?) when she made an alt version for them. As I mentioned, TJ swaps the holiday sprites all at once, so all pumpkins on her scroll when he did that were turned into alts at the same time, CB or not. Any pumpkins she got after that switch were all normal. So I do believe it is a one-and-done action - otherwise artists could ask TJ to turn their respective holiday releases into alts each year they acquire more, which as far as I know has not happened.

 

Snow Angels are a special circumstance, they weren't intended to have Spriter alts at all and it was a surprise gift from TJ. They have special rules that no other holiday has, and thus their alts have different rules compared to other spriter alts. Dis has one Angel, a CB alt. IIRC Jazi has two Angels: 1 CB, 1 bred, both alts. TAE has many Angels both CB and bred and all of them are alts. They are scroll coded and their artists cannot get any of the other versions, only the alts, so I'd say they are still one-and-done as TJ just needed to code their scrolls once for it.

Can earthquake be used more than once on a batch of eggs? I just used earthquake and all my eggs were unaffected. Would I theoretically be able to use another green dragon to try again? Or is that not possible?

As far as I know, you can try as often as you have available Green Dragons.

I was away for awhile too, and have been back for a month or so now and from what I've seen, 2g tinselkins and 2g shimmerkins are the hot ticket. I think since the Market opened and has been opened for some time now, the value of a CB Gold has went down some, as I haven't seen those be as viable in trading as I did in 2018 (when I left), when the Market was still relatively new. But I've also feel like I've seen an increase in Neglecteds and I've seen some people ask for (can't think of a specific example sadly at the moment) eggs of a little lower rarity than I expected. But from my experience in general, 2g prizekins are the hot ticket. :)

I have seen trades asking for 1 or two CB Gold or even Silver. CB Staterae seem to be the rarest thing right now and would probably trade 1 for 1 with Neglecteds. A lot depends on the individual trader.

Thank you all, now I have a better idea.

Not a problem! :) As I've read the other responses, I will say that I may have been misremembering what I've seen! I also forgot about the CB Staterae's. 🤣 But I still kinda stand by what I said that I do think that with the market the viability of the Golds/Silvers have gone down just a tiny bit and agree with what the others said that more and more people are looking for multiple CB golds/silvers more so than just a 1:1 like they used to be. :) Good luck on your quest, though! I hope you find a neglected! :D

is anyone else having trouble loading Dragon Cave right now? It's taking forever to load and then I get a "This cite can't be reached" message.

Nope, no problem here. Could be an issue on the route between your location and DC?

according to someone on the discord, "quite some people" are having issues with it. The page keeps trying to load and some dragons appear sometimes, but other times I get missing images or just plain letters where the images should be.

I'm having some trouble too. Maybe it has to do with the Raffle drawing, or its just some random lag monster xD

 

But yeah, I'm experiencing the same since like 20 minutes ago.

Doesn't mean that you all can't be hanging on the wrong side of the same Gordian Knot that popped up somewhere on the web. Seeing that you're all online at the same time, you all may at least be in the same time zone.

"Fun" fact: the site itself works fine for me, but the forums just timed out on me.

considering my time zone syncs up perfectly with cavetime I don't know how many might be online at 3ish am. But, if you're on at the same time as well then wouldn't that theory affect you too? I don't know how signals and networking works. I ain't super tech savy. All I know is my cookies and cache are clear and everything else works fine. Forums, youtube, steam, discord, etc.

Well, it wasn't working fine for me. I just wanted to see if anyone else was having the same issue. It is definitely not a traffic issue because mine worked just fine on the night of the new releases. It isn't my own internet because I have the gigabit speed internet. All my other websites work fine. 

 

I was just wondering if maybe the site was doing maintenance or something.

Try a ping ? Quite often there's a knot somewhere which only affects some people.

 

In Windows type “cmd” into the search box, select cmd.exe . At the prompt, type “ping” along with the URL or IP address you want to ping, and then hit Enter. You may find it hangs horribly somewhere. (Mine is superfast this morning.)

Question:

Does unsuccessful vampire bite count as an intentional kill? I sometimes kill my dragons to make a Zombie Army, and I noticed that my available kills dropped from 4 to 2 after two eggs died from a vampire bite. Is this intended, or is it a bug?

If the egg dies, it counts as a kill, yes.
