Does dragon's name "Longed Clarity" makes sense? I am not sure if it's okay without "for" in-between, but "Longed" is supposed to express the quality of "Clarity", not an action.

dragon names don't need to make sense, they can absolutely be gibberish...but if you're just seeking feedback on this particular phrase, I usually see longed-for being used as one word and an adjective. Pretty sure that's more commonly seen compared to longed, but longed also makes sense at least to me. You can decide, it's your dragon after all : >

I can figure out what it was probably meant to imply, but it does sound awkward to me.  "Longed" isn't really an adjective on its own in English, with or without a preposition.  Maybe "Desired Clarity" or "Wanted Clarity" would be clearer, if it's not taken yet?

Question: can you revive a chicken? Do they turn into undeads? I don't want to kill one just to see the result but I'm curious. The undead page on wiki only noted that paper and cheese can't become undeads anymore and dino don't have revive option, didn't see any info about chicken.

Undead chickens are dinner. ;)

But there is no chicken zombie, so I'd think not.

Nope, the message says you cook and eat it. Lol

That's what I was thinking :dry:

I don't like the changed meaning and still sounds a bit awkward, I think. Is there any word to describe the state of air being clear after fog has dissipated? The name was an attempt at referencing the placement of Kohraki dragons in lineage, but it would make more sense with Desipis dragons anyway. Maybe I'll come up with something else later.

I wanted this one to have a normal/nice name :)

Is there a way to tell which breeds of dragons you are missing other than having a list of all the breeds and cross referencing with your cave? I believe I've let the releases get away from me ;;

That is exactly the way, just for you (since you seem to use Legacy Breed order), I would use the temporary Sort By: Breed option and compare your scroll to the Encyclopedia.

I was hoping it would not be so tedious, but thank you!

Limpidity. Luminosity. Pellucidity (that's an awkward word for a name...) Lucency... Can do more...

@Lost_Unicorn Maybe "Long-awaited Clarity"?

I thought about it, but still there's no "rhyme" to it. I think I am not gonna bother naming it "[whatever] clarity" anymore.

The 4 day 23 hour eggs are mixed in between the 5 day 0 Hour eggs in Abandoned. Aren't they supposed to be sorted by lowest time left?

Technically, yes, they are supposed to be sorted by lowest time. But it does seem to fluctuate slightly, especially when there is only an hour or so difference. It might have something to do with the time-left only showing hours, not minutes, so 4 days 23 hours 50 minutes (or whatever) would show with the 5 day 0 hour.... But that's just a guess. It's been this way for awhile though.

My guess would be that it fetches the 100 or so with the lowest time and then displays a random subset of 30 of these.

Are all neglected dragons unavailable for precognition, or only the genderless ones?

I glimpsed an egg earlier today in Abandoned that was snatched up in an eyeblink. It was one shade of pink and had bumpy edges like it was scaled, but it didn't have a scale pattern going across it. It looked like a V-day Floral Crowned egg without the scales. I scanned the wiki list and didn't see it. eAny ideas on what it was?

Hmm, only thing I can think of is Risensong? Risensong egg.gif

All other all-pink eggs are fairly smooth, not bumpy. 

If you figure it out let us know, I'm curious now, lol.

Risensong is too hot pink in color and has smooth edges. 

Maybe it was a glitch in loading and it only showed the first layer of color?

Could it have been an Aranoa? Aranoa egg.png

Possibly. That is one of the pink-colored eggs with 'scaly' edges. Like I said, it was grabbed immediately.

Here, this link is extremely helpful for identifying eggs both by image and description. :)
