2015-08-29 - August Release

Recommended Posts

I was slightly associated to fairies when I first saw the adults, especially the golden ones. So as long as you don't violate the rules of naming, you may name as you wish. Whatever floats your boat. smile.gif

When I first saw them, I thought they were insect-like (having thought they had 3 pairs of wings). Their thin-but-shiny body and their facial designs made it look like that even moreso. However, when I focus on the central body (or become mesmerized by the gif) it's then that I really see how much I love the design and the glorious pose.

At first I thought they were just really stunning and gorgeous, lol laugh.gif;;

 

I didn't think they particularly looked like anything, and I still don't haha.

Hi All,

 

I've been absent for a while and while I managed to catch some in the first release I'm not sure if I've missed one or not. Has there been a release since the first one?

 

Thanks.

Before this thread ends, would someone be kind enough to explain how the Lunar Heralds are dropping? I realize it's by moon phase, but... I'm confused. PM or public, just please be nice, I'm not trying to be a dunce here...

Looking at your scroll you have gold lunar adults and I believe bronze lunar eggs so you haven't missed anything.

No one knows for sure, but it appears that the moons have four different phases that change from time to time (my guess is that on a couple of days). Each phase corresponds a certain colour. First we had the golden ones, now we still have the brown ones. The next time the moon cycle proceeds and their phases change, we'll have a new color dropping in the cave. smile.gif

And believe me, you're no dunce, no one but TJ knows exactly how this works. Everyone else is just guessing. tongue.gif

The first release was gold eggs and started on Aug 29. The eggs that are dropping now are the bronze ones. There has been nothing else so far. smile.gif

I hope there's not another release today since my Bronzes still have a while to go until they hatch.

It is past 4 PM EST/DC and so far, no phase change.

- Because someone asked, I made a thread for the Moon Phases and Lunar Herald theories! Click Here to join in! Now, if the place closes, we have a thread to continue the discussion, especially for bred eggs.

-I'm predicting the phases will change at least, by 4 PM today (09/05/15) for Aurax and 4 PM 09/06/15 for Cirion, and at most, by 8 PM 09/08/15 for Aurax and 8 PM 09/09/15 for Cirion. I explain why Here. Looks like we're in for a wait.

- Bronzes are still dropping!

- 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 Lunar Heralds, the former prize breed, moon-loving dragons!

- 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.)

- So far, only Gold eggs and Bronze eggs have dropped. Only Bronze eggs have been bred.

- 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 masse! 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.

6) The Lunar egg colors are based on what percentage of the moons are illuminated. If one moon is greater than 50% illuminated (gibbous to full), while the other moon is less than 50% illuminated (crescent to new), then Lunar eggs are the color of the dominant moon. If both moons are equal in illumination, other colors show up.

- 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 6.

- The newest phase change, recent egg colors, and TJ's correctional post seems to support Theory 2 and 6.

 

- 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 and TJ's correctional post, 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!

- LadyLyzar is giving us a pretty Gold Lunar Herald avatar to match her own avatar. She'll give us the others later.

- LadyLyzar states that Lunar Heralds do indeedhave metallic scales, but she didn't intend for them to be classified as "metallic dragons" like Golds and Silvers. As they were originally intended to be prizes, she wanted to make them shiny and pretty.

 

- 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.

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

Some of them are three days.

Are they still sick? If not then you should unfog them so they can grow up and you'll have adults smile.gif

 

You may want to hop over here and request a mentor to help you get comfortable with the game smile.gif

LOL.

 

I can't tell you how much I've been refreshing this thread and occasionally the time page. Lol.

I am still waiting, I keep checking back to see if the eggs changed, but nope, still bronze.

 

It's like that feeling at 11:55pm the day before your 8th birthday. Ugh, come on already.

Lol, I hope it doesn't change until the 9th, or at least for a couple of days - I see by thread comments that latecomers are just picking up Bronzes now, and while I have some hatching in 13 or 14 hours, others won't for over a day and I'm not the only one, lol.

 

I wish we'd had time for more of the gold ones, which I think are definitely my favorite - just stunning sprites!

 

And thank you so much to Shokomon and others working on trying to help sort out the phase sequences, and again to LadyLyzar for the amazing sprites, TJ for the Release and especially for that wonderful Flood, and to our lovely and charming Mods, even if I get warned for the following, lol.

 

Just want to add my hope that people will remember to run Viewers for the fansites they're using at some point - Unique Views have been worse than ever with more eggs in the fansites, which slows the development of our dragons and results in their needing far more Views for them to reach various stages than they would with a better proportion. smile.gif

 

 

Also, (sorry, but just to clear some confusion) if anyone likes to NOT enter their eggs into fansites until late in their 4th day, anyone putting their eggs into Silvi's will assuredly not be Viewbombing them on a site which is safe for new eggs, but trying to make sure they don't die, not knowing that's deliberate - make certain your setting is on NOT accepting help so that nobody will wonder if you're just new or have lost internet and try to help you when you don't want to be helped. But Silvi's cannot and will not be used for Viewbombing, so Viewbombing incidents have been lower than some might think. smile.gif (Will shut up now, as discussion of this has been termed OT, but this might save some worry and some bad feeling.)

Maybe the Blues would end up being Halloween Full Moon special colour (prob not) so you could only hunt them once a year during the ''special'' moon tongue.gif

 

Edit: Or get a different unique colour during special moon ''events'' such as moon eclipse or such if that exists in the dragcave world

 

Like pumpkin/ snotty green during halloween and spaceblack during eclipse huh.gif
