This is an incredibly helpful community. :) Maybe if you let slip what lineage the Autumn had, a generous soul might breed you a replacement.

 

Thanks for the kind thought :)

 

It was a CB, so maybe I will find another one.  I guess there's a couple of weeks left.  But I don't think I've seen more than one or two the whole season.

Sorry for the problems you've run into daba555.  I do want to offer another tip to help prevent such an occurrence.  Whenever you catch something rarish from the cave immediately fog it so they can't use the code to bomb.  If you are quick it will also prevent them from seeing scroll name.  If it's something really rare you might also want to hide scroll at that point as insurance.  I normally don't put new eggs into hatcheries until they are a day old and by that time the potential bomber hopefully has found other things to catch their attention.  After that 24 hours I will unfog/unhide things, though do watch closely to make sure.

Good tips, thank you.  I have never, ever had this problem, in the 12 years I've belonged.  Not with gold, silver, or anything else.  That some people can be so petty and jealous over a simple thing like this is mind-boggling!

 

3 of the 6 sick hatchlings are still sick this morning, and I am not going to unfog them till right before they can mature - does that seem the right thing to do?  Unfortunately, with the Nebulas, I was planning to gift ones that went green, and maybe that won't work, then.

From what I've heard hatchlings are very hard to kill by viewbombing so they should be alright. Better safe than sorry though, so your strategy sounds fine; you could stun the nebula to get some extra time to gift it.

Stun?  Huh.  I don't know much about BSA's, except the basic incubate, fertility, and gender influence, actually.

Stun (Bolt BSA) adds a day to the hatchling's countdown, and renders it unable to receive any views or clicks for two days.

I *think* that last effect vanishes upon the hatchling leaving your scroll, though.

Shadowdrake thanks for the links!

 

I am still trying to figure out if there's a benefit to stun.  Hiding keeps them from getting views/clicks.

 

Will adding a day somehow add to health?  I do know that I should never put newly caught/incubated eggs into a fansite, because they get too many view, too fast.  These hatchlings were at 6 d 2 hours when I looked at my scroll, first time that day.

If it can't get views it can't get sick. (Or sicker. If they were going to die from it they would have)

Stun is mostly useful if you want to retrade a hatchie; if you just want it to grow up safely, fogging is perfectly fine and doesn't add extra time onto it.

Hatchlings are very resilient to death from sickness...this coming from a person who have deliberately tried to viewbomb her own hatchie to death for zombie purpose but couldn't kill it. The stat in the end was 25160/1678/34. It was sick as an egg to begin with, and it's in EVERY hatchery and I made sure to max its OV. Still didn't die - so I wouldn't worry too much about the hatchlings. Fogging them definitely helps but I don't think any of them would have issue surviving

 

 

Quick question - I'm not even sure it's a question really, but is there a reason why ice dragon is ridiculously expensive in market? It's like twice the price of a stat and at least 1.5 times price of gold dragon. Is there a reason for that...? How is ice dragon that rare...?

Moriaty, thank you for that - I feel much better about it now!

 

As for ice, I have no idea.  They are uncommon, but not as rare as all that.  Oh, but I see Thunder is the same, and Magma even worse at 4,700!  I suppose it's not the rarity but that you need all 3 of them for Guardians.

Holy - I did not notice that magma. I don't understand lol it's far easier to breed ice magma and thunder too and you don't need a CB to summon...strange mechanics

Also, I think the others are talking about stunning b/c you said you wanted to gift the nebulas that went green - you can stun it to give it an extra day so that you can gift them (I think two extra days, actually, because if your hatchie doesn't receive any views it's unable to grow up as well, but correct me if I'm wrong)

 

Eg, when you unfog at 4 days 1 hour, you can stun it, make its time 5 days 1 hour, but it wouldnt grow up until another two days have passed, until 3 days 1 hour, in my understanding. You can fog it again if it's sick and then trade/gift it at 3 days 2 hour (before the stun effect wears off) and hopefully it's recovered at that time.

About nebula hatchling colors.  You can use breed sort to find out what color group (blue/purple or red/green) on ungendered nebula hatchlings.  They will sort with the others of that same color group.

Both hatch from the same egg, the one that's half pink half purple. Sunsets hatch in the evening (6pm to midnight), and sunrises hatch in the morning (6 am to noon), DC time. Outside those times, the egg will not hatch no matter what.

 

 

Is there anyone here with a scroll still under legacy breed sort who doesn't mind letting me look at it?

Someone mentioned that to me, but how do you sort just the Nebula without doing the whole scroll?

 

Sunrise and sunset will only hatch during the specific hours for their breed.  It depends on when you caught the egg.  I found out the hard way, when I thought I was viewbombed, years ago, and it was just that it kept collecting views for an additional bunch of hours.  Someplace, I don't know where, it's in one of these threads about it, giving the exact times.

 

And while I was typing, I see that the question was answered!  Thanks :)

 

Sorry, my scroll isn't sorted that way.

okay, related, but an egg wont hatch if its fogged, right? since it needs views to push it into hatching... if its fogged, it doesnt get any views. so this means it just wont hatch until its unhidden and gains another few views, right? just wanna make sure, before i mess up the whole lineage im planning

It will NOT hatch while fogged. It can die that way, actually.

Yes, but here's the thing - if it had enough views/clicks to hatch before it reached 4 days, then when you unfog it, it will hatch pretty quickly.  I actually was trying to influence, and it hatched before I could get it done.  

 

Oh, I have never had one die while fogged!

You can check my friend Lockie. Her scroll is still legacy breed sort - but she's missing A LOT of dragons so I'm not sure if you'll find what you look for on her scroll

 

I kind of regret switching out of legacy breed : / I switched out because I was trying to uncheck the box placing hatchi and egg on top (because I have too many dead hatchi and it honestly looks so sad) and for some reason if I don't select out of legacy breed view I can't change that setting. But then after I change I dont even know where to look for a lot of things lol. I prefer having valentines and halloweens sorted together...sigh, now I can't go back

You can't. You just use the temporary sort dropdown on the right of your scroll page to sort by breed and then find your nebulas in the resulting scroll sort.

I still use the Legacy Breed Name sort. Feel free to look. I have most dragons, though be warned I'm in the process of renaming my dragons. I still have about 400 left to rename. lol
My scroll is in my signature. :)
