It is not a motion illusion. smile.gif

So, you're saying that they make everyone see them as dragons who have three pairs of wings, but actually have only one, regardless if they move or not? Now you got me going, Lyzar, I need to know more about them! wub.gif

Anyway, my guess is that the elemental affinity of these dragons is Time. We don't have many dragons that are associated to that type of mana in the cave because it's pretty rare, but these guys seem to fit the profile. smile.gif

P.S: I had to take two more eggs for freezing once they gender. God, I love them! wub.gif

Very nice! The sprite looks great. The silver is my favourite, definitely.

The description makes it sound as if the different colors are only avaliable through breeding though,,, I hope I'm wrong.

time you say?

these will make lovely mates to the cronos!

Not sure, but that could be possible. smile.gif I mean, why not? After all, they do react to how the Moon changes over time. biggrin.gif

I love how the adults look, but for some reason am not a fan of the number of wings they have. Ah well though, I still love their theme!

 

Edit: Just read that the others are illusory. Hmm, very interesting! I would be really curious to see what the "illusory" wings looked like if they were a bit faded like Shadow Walkers. biggrin.gif

But I think they do. Fade a bit, I mean. The second pair is quite translucent, and the third one barely visible, except for the outer rainbow glow.

Added more stuff to the summary. Tell me if I missed anything.

Edit: Formatting, new Additions, and Fixed my summary TJ's comment because I can't read apparently.

 

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, both Aurax (Gold Moon), and Cirion (Blue Moon) are still in the  Waning Gibbous phase.

- Everyone has only captured Gold eggs in the Cave thus far.

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

 

- 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.

- Despite this, 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.

 

- 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.

 

- 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's not motion illusion.

 

- 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.

 

Threads!

- Lunar Herald Breeding and Naming

 

Documents!

- DC Moon Watch & Lunar Egg Tracking

 

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

GORGEOUS. The iridescence would be beautiful on its own, but the multiple wing effect and four possible colors? Fantastic; I want a ton of them. Thank you!

True, but they mostly look like a true pair due to their arm detail/deep color on the inner webbing of their illusory wings. I faded them out a bit more in an image editor just to see what they'd look like, and I really like it, but it's probably just me. tongue.gif I would post to show what I mean, but I think I'd need permission to post that...

Oh man I have just see two eggs. I find they are hard to catch. The July dragons where easier to find. Maybe it is just me.

The description makes it sound as if the different colors are only avaliable through breeding though,,, I hope I'm wrong.

I was thinking that it was in addition to the cb colors. So you can get cb's in all the colors, and then through breeding, they will be the color belongs to the moon phase you're breeding in.

 

if it's only one or the other, it'd be a bummer. we'll find out.

How beautiful! Mine only just turned into a hatchling, it really seems as if they are hard to hatch.

The extra wings are actually illusory. The top pair are the only true wings on the dragon.

The more I look at them, the more I see that indeed, the dragon only possesses one pair of wings (took me a little while to figure it out however)

 

As for how to get the other colors...I hoping like Nebulas they can be gotten both by breeding or in the cave as I would love to do an alternating color lineage.

OMGoodness!!! I absolutely adore their design! <3 I don't have a specific breed of dragon that I hoard, but man, I may start! Beautiful, absolutely stunning.

 

Plus as a side note I FINALLY reached 500 dragons! Gold trophy baby. <3 (took long enough, but I guess my hiatus didn't help. xd.png )

Anyone notice the description was updated?
