can GoN's breed together? or will they ALWAYS reject

From the wiki:

They're able to breed with other dragons (except with other Guardians of Nature, which always refuse) to potentially produce Avatars of Destruction, Change or Creation. The kind of Avatar depends on the elemental affinity of the mate's breed.

Yeah, GoNs are elementally Neutral and cannot produce GoN eggs, so they refuse.
Pretty sure they'll also refuse, like, out of season Sweetlings for the same reason. Regular Neutral dragons are fine because they can produce their own breed, but if they can't, they refuse.

They'll also refuse Heartseekers and Heartstealings outside of Valentine's season, for the same reason.

(So far, all Halloween and all Holiday breeds have an elemental affinity, it's only some Valentine's breeds who have something better to do than deal with elemental magic XD)

How can I know if something is really a Thuwed?

Check the caveborns. If at least one pair has "Verified Thuwed" on their page, they're really Thuweds.

Thinking this is more a glitch but...has anyone else caught a CB egg from the biome and gotten the fog sprite instead of the egg?

 

The egg shows fine on its page and my scroll but it seems pretty weird

its normal, current consensus is you catch it as its trying to be cleared from the cave, therefore fogball. Probably lag related and it's been happening a lot during halloween

okay i wanted to ask this just to make sure, but if i breed 2 caveborn dragons from my scroll, kill both of them, but view the egg's lineage, the names of the parents will both be listed as just "(Deceased)", right? it won't show their code? i wanted to make a deadline lineage but i wanted to make sure that it'll end up clean before i did it and was disappointed :P

I don't believe you can get the (Deceased) thing anymore - dead dragons still show their code now iirc.

oh, really? glad i asked, then. guess i'll have to find some at least neat codes for it then. i was a bit confused since i had dragons on my scroll with (Deceased) dragons in their lineage, but i couldn't tell when they were from, and i didnt know if i could find that information anywhere..

It was how old dead dragons were dealt with - they got the Deceased marker and you couldn't click on them in the lineage view. Once they were dead it was like they never existed. I can't remember what year that changed, but eventually it was made so dead dragons are still 'clickable' in the lineage view and also keep their names/codes visible. I remember some deadline folks were quite unhappy with the changes.

i don't have many dragons with dead parents/dead ancestry, so i was unclear. but i have a followup question: if you kill a named dragon, they retain their name, right? it doesn't get erased, you cant change it , etc?

That is correct. The name will be connected to that dead dragon forever.

We Were Indeed. It was JUST before I managed this.

Bred the last egg - and it changed and spoiled it all... (I wanted it to say Deceased all the way down...) I was also curious if - over time - it would stop showing as inbred - it's the most remarkable inbred that ext - who used to use it as an example - had ever seen... there are 1107 repeated dragons in there for a START....

 

and I so wanted it to appear all clean and neat !

Anybody else getting the tombstone message while trying to access the cave/your scroll/a dragon?

It seems to broke down for me about half an hour ago and I can't do anything until now.

As of 6am DC time, yes.

Even the fansites aren't getting a connection anymore.

 

... and it's back for now. Huh.

It's going up and down like a yoyo for me... isup says it's down, then that it's up, and so on.

Hello ^^ first time I try this but - is rush-hatching low-time AP eggs and then chucking them back into the AP effective at 'saving' them? Will most of the resulting hatchies be picked up, or will they mostly grow up wild?

Take them out of hatcheries before you abandon them, then they should be too low on stats to grow up wild.

Hatchies will be picked up faster than eggs, as our hatchie limits are higher. So - can't hurt.

 

ETA and Ruby is right there !

Thanks both of you ^^ yep I thought of removing them from hatcheries after my first batch of chucks-backs. I'll keep at it then :)

Nevermind I'm an idiot. I missed that the deceased parent would have their lineage, so it still registers as 14th gen

 

.......Ignore.........

Puzzled about a lineage.

It says this dragon is 14th gen, but both of the "grandparents" are CB. I'm very confused.

You sure nothing grew up? Did you offer on a trade and it went through? Did you have 'held' eggs from a multi-clutch breeding that auto-abandoned after an hour?

Not sure if this is a glitch but

I found this weird egg on a click site, when I clicked it says the egg doesnt actually exist, yet it has stuff like remaining days, unique views and clicks, what is this? image.png.25b2133503e36b046c72661e747ae54b.png
