When adding dragons to a group (or in the Fertility dragon selection view, which uses the same code), you can put #cb into the search box (with the hashtag) and it'll show only those dragons that are CB. That also works for #2g, #3g, et cetera.

 

That. Is. Awesome. Thank you.

There isn't really a higher chance time, although we had hope when TJ changed the rules that we'd get them easier.  We didn't.  I've made them when they've been headstones. Some save tries for the 31st of the month, personally I've always saved mine for the weekend!  It's all down to luck.  I have the full set, but I won't embarrass myself here by saying how many dragons died in the process. So try a few different ways, I wish you luck!

 

This isn't true - there are 5 levels of "increased odds" for getting zombies, direct from TJ. There are indeed higher chance times. He says so in this thread, here

All I know is that there are many here that are very disheartened with their level of (or lack of) success at any time, even on Halloween itself.  I've said many times, the only way I got the set was by killing many, many dragons over many months.

But - thank you for posting it, At least anyone wanting the official facts have them there now.

I can't remeber - does the weekly shard total run from Sunday to Sunday? Or is it on a different timeframe?

@dragongrrl Thank you (was racking my brain trying to figure out if my next batch of hatching was going to mess up my shards total)

If an artist sprites a holiday dragon are all of their copies of that dragon SAlts or is it just their CBs?

98% of the time its just the CBs (specifically first year CBs in relation to Halloween) but there's a few exceptions. A couple bred Pumpkins Marri had, and one of the snow angel artists has an alt-only scroll.

TJ turns all the to-be-salted holidays in one go when the artist is done collecting, so it's every cb currently on their scroll. (This means that if an artist wants, they can get an early batch of Halloween dragons salted, then pick up or trade for more and they'll be regular.) Otherwise, what Tini said is correct.

Is there a list anywhere of all the dragons that have gotten sprite changes over the years? The new sprite replacements got me thinking about building a lineage exclusively of dragons that have had their sprites replaced at some point and it would be handy to have a full list.

There's no list that I know of, but if you're keen, you can work through "Sprites no longer in use" on the wiki (though it doesn't show this last lot in full, as the individual's stuff is gone. But those you know about.) Are you counting things like whiptails that were not terribly noticeable ? Or just major changes - gold, silver, Aria, Frill...

Good point on the wiki, I'll go look through there! I think I'll probably try to stick with breeds that have had more major changes, but it'll probably depend on how many I find. I'm planning on making it even gen at this point, which will be a little more restrictive on the numbers, so I probably won't include everything. There's definitely some edge cases right off the top of my heads, like the Suns who had a relatively minor update, but they also had the update for dimorphism so they've definitely had more changes than most breeds.

Wait really?? Someone please confirm!

 

Also

Are the new Holidlay 2011 really called Blizzards Wizards? I saw someone say that, but I don't know where it came from.

TJ's the one that accidently told us about the filters in reply to someone a few years back? People have been spreading the info far and wide since lol.

 

Like, within minutes of the new sprites being up lol.

I've always loved the easy chart that gives you both 'days since creation' and 'time until death' with and without incubation. Makes it all really clear. Its very much a triple check your work. People made the same 'chart' in text form and posted it often within days of the release.

If you incubated your Siyat egg and then decide you want it to hatch into a purple Siyat, it means you need to wait until the "Time until death" reads 1 day or less for that egg. The Siyat colors are determined by the actual age of the egg, from time of creation, and incubate does not "speed up" the variation time the way it does hatching time. The egg must be five days old or older to hatch purple.

Some people incubate right when they pick up their eggs so that would apply to their situation.

the "time until death" column and Fuzzbucket's time frames make the most sense to me for Siyats. 

all i know is that the purple ones i hatched were torture, seemingly taking forever.

 

I understand that incubate makes a difference in the timing, but please explain to me how the chart helps me reconcile when it is safe to hatch this egg.

 

When I took below screenshot, egg was at 2 days 22 hours.

 

Please explain to me how the chart (see attached; I am using the "Time Until Death" column) helps me reconcile when it is safe to hatch this egg. I want it to be a purple. According to this chart, I have to wait until 2 days 0 hours or under for it to be a purple without incubate. I do not believe that is correct. I believe the correct time is 2 days 23 hours to 0 days 1 hour. 

 

Unless I am mistaken and I have to wait until egg (unincubated) is under 2 days 0 hours old? I do not believe that is how I created my first Purple Siyat. I thought I hatched when it was 2 days 23 hours.

 

Two images are under spoiler.

@missy_ it must be at 2d0h or under, not incubated, to get purple siyats. (if incubated, then it has to be 1d0h.)

 

Incubate does not make a difference in how long you have to wait, only what the text on the egg says.

 

You're probably misremembering, as in the DC chat there was a bit of an uproar around the time of release at having to wait so long for purples. The division of possible hatching times is perfectly even; 4-6 days left for green, 2-4 days left for blue, 0-2 days left for purple. (It is impossible to get a hatchling at 6-7 days left, so we shouldn't count it.)

if you have not incubated it - in 22 hours - so it says 2d 0h, put it into hatcheries and hatch it and it will be purple.

I must be misremembering. Maybe that is why I only have one purple Siyat on my scroll! XD Argh.

The article on the wiki includes a citation to this post, which was pinned by moderators in the original release thread:

If there is evidence that those times are incorrect, then feel free to use the article's talk page to discuss it.
