Tiny Little Questions

Recommended Posts

Follow up questions...

After I posted that, I hid everything I had.  I ended up catching a CB thunder a bit later in the day (after someone had already bombed me) and I forgot to hide it right away.  Returned a couple hours later, I'd been hit again.

What exactly is the motivation for viewbombing?? Just... why, really?

Like it is clear at this point I am being specifically targeted but I'm genuinely baffled.  I don't understand why someone would single anyone out on this site just to be malevolent?

This is to the point where I'm almost scared of posting on the Trading Hub because I'm sure that's how they've gotten my scroll -- my best guess is that I didn't accept a trade offer and that really ticked someone off, or something.  It's twice in one day now someone has purposefully done this

@Dekka Guaranteed it's either spite or trolling. People hate what you have, hate what you're doing, hate that you grabbed something before them, or think you're one of many convenient viewbombing targets. They're just being jerks because there's no chance they'll be punished for doing this to you.

I dunno what the opposite of "floats my boat" is, but that does the opposite of floating my boat

If people wouldn't be awful, I'd honestly be willing to catch just about anything that I'm trading for free anyways.  If someone would just PM to ask instead of shoving my stuff into hatcheries. )-:

Probably hide your scroll would be a nice choice...then unless they have the code of every single one of your egg/hatchi they wouldn't be able to anything

 

Aaand I have a question. Where can I see when I last killed a dragon / froze a hatchling? I forgot to write down the time and now I don't know when the slot would free up. Action log is like almost twenty pages long for me and I'm having a headache searching through them. Anyone got an suggestion?

Sadly, you have to find kills in the action lot, but freeze has a list in the help page: https://dragcave.net/help/actions#freeze

Thanks!! DIdn't even know that page existed; for killing I guess I'll just need to go through the action log searching for keyword "killed" then...

 

Another question, I sorted by color. Is this normal?? That this blue dragon sorted on top?

Wait wait wait.... Why is your blue Alcedine a female???

 

I thought blue = male, and red=female.

 

Have I just been super unlucky with mine? Is it like, a biome specific mechanic I completely missed somehow? I just let my Alcedines gender naturally, was it just a fluke all the colors aligned with a gender?

Pretty sure they can be both genders. I missed out the release and the only two alcedine I had are red male and blue female

I'd like to point out a suggestion I made 2 years ago which for some reason gained hardly any interest ...

Support this one.

@Serotina Alcedine colouring is random, doesn't show till hatching, and either sex can be either colour..

OR (and this does happen) they saw you mention it in a post and decided to do it some more to see if you will post again.... I am told this happens even more if you post about it on the unofficial discord, but I don't know that for a fact.

It is not actually normal, but it has happened before when a breed has multiple colourations. Purple Florets used to sort at the top for a long time because their sort colour was not defined. Seems to be the same with blue Alcedines now.

So this may be a dumb question, but I couldn't find the answer on the wiki/fandom site.

I accidentally enraged one of my Pacified Aegis dragons when I went to name it. I've never Pacified one once Enraged, but I didn't want this one Enraged. I know I need to wait a couple weeks now until the dead dragons I recently killed to try and get zombies are off of my scroll...but my question is this: Will having zombies on my scroll stop me from being able to Pacify an Enraged Aegis? Do they count as dead dragons that will keep me from being able to use Pacify, and I'll have to Expunge my zombies now? :unsure:

Heaven forbid! No, the zombies won't prevent you from pacifying the Aegis.

(besides, they are undead) ;)

If I keep my hatchling fogged all the way until 0 days 0 hours 0 minute but in fact it already has enough view to grow up, will it die or will it grow up in fog?

It will die. That is one way people get zombie hatchlings without using kill slots.

It will die, but it might take a little longer than just 0h. I think things don't die in fog until the hour hits on the clock. Definitely don't unfog it, though.

I see. Thank you! Was worried that if I gave it a lot of view as an egg it might have enough to grow up even I've prevented it from receiving views as a hatchi

 

Another question - does stunning prevent the hatchi from growing up? I know it stops it from getting views and add 1 day but does that stopped view count prevent hatchi from growing up as well?

Yes, a stunned hatchling cannot grow up for the duration of the stun (until it's able to get views again). (It can, however, be frozen, I've found out!)

Yes. However, if you trade it away the view count stop will disappear. However You also can't stun any hatchie with 1 day left or under, probably to prevent someone stunning something and it dying because it can't grow.

Thank goodness! That's a relief. ^_^ Thank you! I was a bit worried since they have tombstones during the day. :lol:

How hard is it to view bomb a hatchi to death? Like say I have a 7 day fresh hatchie, about what stat would cause it to naturally die?

 

Asking because I find being scroll locked trying to wait the clock out such a pain :< It's like, at least seven entire days for one single dead hatchi

It's extremely difficult. Most people say that hatchlings will grow up fine even if they're sick all the time. The only person I've heard using sickness death said they had to start with eggs that were already sick for a day.

 

Stubborn eggs like zyus or prizes are probably easiest to get sick due to how long they get ER'd, if you don't care about lineage. Otherwise, semi-stubborn eggs like tetras and brimstones might work too? But if you're making them sick when they're an egg it probably doesn't much matter how long it takes to hatch.

Looks like the waiting game is a better choice for me in this case ... I feel like if I do the get-em-sick-while-being-eggs route I have a chance of not watching them closely enough and killing the egg instead :S Thanks for that helpful info!

Question: how do people "hunt" for code? I've seen it mentioned a lot of times on forum but don't quite understand how people do it unless they actually get to the get-egg page? Apologies if it's something that we aren't supposed to talk about

If you hover the mouse over an egg in the biomes or the AP there's a floating little field where you can read the code, depending on the brower it  hovers over the egg or somewhere in the corner of your browser window. Not sure if it would work on mobile in any way though.
