Recommended Posts

I only have enough pinks left for three more full pairs... >.>

 

I think I'll save those... ^^

 

And after this madness is done, I think I'll have to do some breeding... smile.gif

My worries are my pinks. If I knew we were going to have a release such as this one I would have hoarded more pinks, and it's not like I have just a few of them. All of them are on cooldown now, some still have a day left to unlock, some need much more. I hope for the next color to be released at least two days from now so that my pinks can come back to influence them as well. smile.gif

I can influence for you anytime if you need some help happy.gif

As of 8:28 am, the moons' phases have not changed.

- The flood is still occurring! Bronzes Ahoy!

- As always, please tell me if I forgot anything.

 

A CURRENT SUMMARY OF WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT THE MOON AND EGGS:

(For everybody who was late to the party and/or wants updates)

-------

 

- We have Beautiful pseudo-six-winged Adults!! And a name, Lunar Heralds!

- Currently, Aurax (Gold Moon), and Cirion (Blue Moon) are still in the WaNing Crescent and WaXing Crescent phases respectively.

- Everyone is still catching Bronze eggs in the Cave.

- We have Adult dragons, and we are breeding Bronze eggs.

- The eggs are found in the Alpine, Desert, and Volcano Biomes. (Think places where the sky is easily seen.)

- Info on the current moon phase can be accessed from the Time page, which you can get to by clicking the clock in the top right hand corner of the new Standard DC skin, by going to the Help page and clicking Time Reference link, by going to the first page in this thread and clicking the link in the banner, OR by clicking the 3 above links embedded in this post.

- As of Sept 3, 2015 at 6:00 PM, Bronze eggs began dropping en mass! Grab 'em while you can!

 

- No one had been tracking the moons until now, so we have no idea how quickly they change. So, we cannot accurately predict what eggs will come when.

- That means no one knows how to get the other egg colors until the other moon phases come and the lunar cycle completes itself.

- There is a possibility that the release started in the middle of the Waning Gibbous phase for Aurax and Waning Crescent phase for Cirion.

- IMPORTANT: All data before 09/03/13, 1:56 PM was incorrect as the time page was showing Aurax's phase for BOTH moons. TJ has provided a corrected cycle in his post.

- This does NOT affect the information gathered on the eggs, just the moon phases the eggs were caught/bred under.

- The cycle has progressed, and so far we know: (Taken and modified from TJ's post)

Aug 29, 2015 @ 12:00 AM EST/DragonCave (DC) to Sep 01, 2015 @ 7:59 PM EST/DC.

Aurax: Waning Gibbous

Cirion: Waning Crescent

CB Lunar eggs are  Gold.

 

Sep 01, 2015 starting 8:00 PM EST/DC

Aurax: Waning Crescent*

Cirion: New*

CB Lunar eggs change from Gold to Bronze.

- The Gold egg drop lasted about 3 days and 17 hours.

* = TJ's post doesn't mention a phase change at the same time the new color drops, but we know the color change happened here. So, we assume the phase changed happened here too.

 

Sep 02, 2015 @ 12:00 AM EST/DC

Aurax: Waning Crescent

Cirion: New

CB Lunar eggs are Bronze.

 

Sep 03, 2015 @ 12:00 AM EST/DC

Aurax: Waning crescent**

Cirion: Waxing crescent**

CB Lunar eggs are  Bronze and Bred Lunar eggs are  Bronze.

** Exact time of change Unknown.

[Edited by Shokomon]

- Note: The Moon Phases TJ posted were Phases of the moon at 12:00 AM EST of their respective date. That is why the post doesn't match up with the color change.

- We can assume that on Sept 1, 2015, the phases changed at 8:00 PM EST/DC, where Aurax shifted Waning Gibbous to Waning Cresent, and Cirion from Waning Cresent to New Moon.

 

- There are many theories on how the eggs will come and when, including, but not limited to:

  • 1) Certain eggs being available during different phases of the moons in general, under the assumption that the moons are in synch, and will share the same moon phases.

2) Certain eggs being avaliable relative to the different phases of each moon (assuming the moons are NOT in synch) and overlap between both moons' phases.

3) One moon's phases controlling cave-born colors and the other moon's phases controlling bred colors.

4) Certain Lunar eggs colors are linked to Aurax, and the other colors are linked to Cirion.

5) Gold is the CB color, and the others could be Bred colors.

- Exactly which moon phase produces what eggs, which moon controls breeding and caveborn colors, and which colors are associated with which moon are up for debate.

- The Lunar Heralds' description has given some support to Theories 1, 2, and 5.

- The newest phase change and eggs seems to support Theory 2.

 

- There are also theories about the DC lunar cycle itself, including, but not limited to:

  • 1) The Moons are in synch and share phases.

2) The Moons are NOT in synch, and occasionally have overlapping phases.

3) The DC Lunar cycle is equivalent to Earth's Lunar cycle, and the current phase will change in at  most a week.

- And there more theories on the size of the moons, their relative speeds, their distance from Valkemare, and the list goes on.

- As of the most recent change, the moons' phases are not in synch͵ supporting Theory 2.

 

- LadyLyzar will tells us more about the dragons, once we start getting adults.

- TJ stated that the orbits of Valkemare's moons are close to circular, and the centre of mass would be close to the planet as it is much larger in size.

--- (Sorry for the confusion here! I completely misinterpreted what TJ posted. Thank you pinkgothic for making a much more accurate summary statement.)

- LadyLyzar seems to hint that the Lunar Heralds may have been initially intended to be prize dragons, and later states that they were made at the same time as the Shimmers.

- LadyLyzar confirms that the 2nd and 3rd set of wings are in fact illusions. Only the top ones are real and that it is not motion illusion.

- LadyLyzar has given us information on the Adults!

 

- The description for the Lunar Heralds has been updated from this:

Lunar Heralds are deeply attuned to the two moons of Valkemare, Aurax and Cirion. Strictly nocturnal, they draw energy from moonlight and will only hunt when the moons have waned. When breeding, the amount of moonlight the parents receive from each moon will determine the color of the egg produced.

- To this:

Lunar Heralds are deeply attuned to the two moons of Valkemare, Aurax and Cirion. Strictly nocturnal, they draw energy from moonlight and will only hunt when the moons have waned. When breeding, the amount of moonlight the parents receive from each moon will determine the color of the egg produced. When a Lunar Herald is struck by direct moonlight, an illusion of multiple wings may appear. Witnessing a Lunar Herald’s illusory wings is commonly believed to be a sign of good fortune.

Documents!

- DC Moon Watch & Lunar Egg Tracking

 

And, I think that's it for the summary.

In my opinion, you can never have enough pinks and reds. Admittedly, on a normal basis I do a lot of catching AP incu-hatchies so I use a lot, but still...!

Not everyone hoards Pinks though.

 

My collection of Pinks is more of a battalion than an Army.

ER - yes....

 

134 pinks and - heavens ! Only 78 reds.

In order to organize my scroll I need to know if these new dragons will be officialy considered "metallics" like Golden wyvern, Silver, Gold and Coppers. The position in m scroll will change if they're not metallics, so I really wish to know it xd.png

I don't have near as many pinks as you do fuzz. I'm working on it though!

 

I have 65 "just" pinks, 15 pinks in various lineages. I have 70 "just" reds and 15 reds in various lineages. I really need more reds since they have such a long cooling off period.

 

I don't think you can ever have too many reds/pinks to use. They sure have come in handy for the dragon release. I usually use a lot of them during the Halloween hoarding event.

 

I hope the blues/silvers wait a bit before dropping. I would hate to have to miss them while my bronzes hatch.

But once they were given that awesome BSA I knew I had to have tons of Pinks and Reds just to stay ahead of any egg-grabbing I might do.

A lot of mine are in lineages - but I also collect low time ones for the heck of it, if I have space. Every pink and every red can use their BSA, so why not xd.png

 

I hadn't QUITE realised how much my lineages had done for my pinks hough !

Tried that refresh/egg cover technique..still nothing. Poor alpine biome is empty xd.png. I guess I'll give up until it settles down in a few weeks. unsure.gif

I specifically didn't influence my gold batch to save my pinks and I guess I got lucky because I ended up with 4 females and 3 males! So I only had to influence one male for sure. I did influence my bronzes though because it originally was looking like they'd be hard to swap.

You have more than enough reds, already ^^

 

For example, I have 104 reds. I'm curious to see how long it takes me to use all of them in a row, so I took note and I started the red cycle on august 11th, using them pretty much every 2 days.

 

I've just used my 40th red so I have 64 reds left. Besides, by now my first 13 reds are already available and I haven't finished the cycle >.<

 

Still, I want lots of more reds even though I'm already covered, with 65 pinks it's relatively enough ^^

Okay, I hadda go count mine too - 88 Pinks and 136 Reds. Looks like I could use a few more Pinks, huh?

 

I agree about not having the other two colors drop too soon (before our bronzes hatch)!

 

ETA: Exactly how many constitute an 'army'?

The new eggs are dropping in more than just Alpine, also hunt Desert and Volcano.

Is it only the Bronze that are the ones dropping so far or are you still able to get the gold lunars somehow? Apparently my desert pair became both males and need to trade it for a female desert. Bad luck for not influencing. ^^;

Presumably golds are not available until the moon cycles come through gold again. There are still people with gold eggs/hatchlings available for trading though.

Just counted also!

 

118 male pinks

121 female pinks

 

And wait for it - 367 reds!

Good grief. If the Reds and Pink ever decide to band together and rebel against their masters we're all in a lot of trouble O.o

Yay, my first brown hatched! That means we'll be having the next colour in about 3 days (or more, i'm no good at predictions.)
