Spring Breeding Event!

Recommended Posts

Alright, guys and gals--it's time to move over spring cleaning and make way for spring breeding!

 

I noticed that the AP is getting fairly high on time again (~5d12h as of now). On top of how totally not cool that is, I thought it was high time for another fun mass breeding event, and on top of that it'll be a fun way to celebrate spring coming into high bloom again and pass the time between now and DC's 10th birthday! So without further ado, THE DETAILS:

 

When:

 

----- All day May 1st, 2016 -----

 

Why:

 

----- BECAUSE! Also to lower AP times and have fun celebrating Spring before DC's birthday! -----

 

What:

 

Breed dragons of the below breeds and send the lovely eggs to the AP! While you can of course breed anything you like, I strongly encourage only breeding pretty lineages and nice 2gs to ensure maximum enjoyment of passerby ^^

 

THE BREEDS:

...I don't have to explain these ones, do I? Also wow I did not realize how cute the two looked together!

Both uncommon and popular, these leafy dragons are a lovely example of the vibrancy of Spring, and will be much enjoyed by cave hunters to boot.

 

user posted imageuser posted imageSUNSONGS

Spring just isn't Spring without the sun!

 

user posted imageAVATARS OF CHANGE

Spring is a time for the changing of seasons, and these butterfly-esque pretties are the emblem of that change!

 

user posted imageROSEBUDS

"But Rosebuds can only breed during Val--" I KNOW but hear me out! Such a flowery, happy breed is a perfect candidate for Spring, and while obviously they can't breed true right now, the holidaykins they produce will add bursts of flowery color of all types to the AP and help out people preparing for Valentines next year!

 

Bonus:

 

Got a case of Spring fever and just can't wait to start breeding? Well, we all know that you can't have May flowers without April showers, so why not breed these two breeds to help get ready?

I bet those Holly earning folks will appreciate the rainbursts!

I like the way you think! I'll do it too. I just finished a mass breeding of all my reds. I figured because of their incubate BSA you can never have too many reds. rolleyes.gif

Some of my favorite breeds are here, can't wait to hoard as many pretty Sunsongs as I can *o*

One question though, should dragons be bred on the 1st or bred so that they show up in the AP on the 1st?

Maybe stripes? They come in a variety of bright shades and are kind of like easter eggs.

I'll have to make sure I avoid my usual weekly breeding for some of my pretty pairs. Would also appreciate a reminder, since otherwise I'm likely to forget. >_>; The day/night before would be awesome if you don't mind.

I'd be a happy receiver of 2nd Gen Purples fom Rosebuds, or Storms from Arsani, if people are wondering what to breed them with... biggrin.gif (see my siggy)

 

And I'll join in with my PB Spring lineage biggrin.gif

I would love to participate and love a reminder! (The more the backlog of the eggs waiting to hit the AP, so it forces time to go down because it takes longer to get thru the wait thus those waiting have had to take longer to hit the AP thus when they hit the AP their time until "hatching" is much lower, sometimes so much lower eggs will auto hatch into hatchlings, although that is more of a Holiday thing).

Aim to breed on the 1st! I understand the logic of trying to breed so eggs appear ON the 1st, but with shifting AP times and random dates it's easier to just remember when to breed rather then trying to breed to make eggs show up at a certain time, methinks. Although of course you can do either if you wish!

 

Hi, question: how does this lower AP times? happy.gif

 

As Natayah said, the more eggs there are in the AP, the longer it takes them all to get picked up. This means eggs sit around longer... and their times go lower and lower. With a little luck we can get them down to below five days again. ^^

 

What about the southern hemisphere???

 

NO AUSSIES INVITED, GET OUT. Haha seriously though, we're just going off the seasons DC itself uses, in which case it's Spring right now. So even though it's not Spring down south right now, please join us! biggrin.gif (Also PS I love the ferret dragon <3)

 

REMINDERS

 

Nooo guys I can't be lazy if I have to remind you! Besides who's gonna remind ME? 8'C B-But I'll do my best!

Day before:

What about adding Vines? they to me seem to sort of go through the seasons in a round about way :unsure

Summer= Full Bloom Adult

spring = stage 2

Autum = Stage 1

Winter=Egg

plus they are leafy and not so abundant as they once were with an added advantage of getting an Alt biggrin.gif

Again, people are welcome to breed anything they like, but I won't be adding any new breeds to the "official" list (yes, oh so official, lol!), as I personally find long lists of breeds overwhelming ^^ (I mean I just took part in the four breed earth day event and I still skipped out on vines because I was getting tired by the time I did the other three, ahaha)

Count me in. I've got a couple of CB springs, lots of Avatars of Change - from CB Rosebuds, no less! - lots of Rosies, a mass of sunsongs and the occasional Gaia. biggrin.gif

 

I think I'm going to breed my springs to pinks, though - they make for such a gorgeous couple! (Plus, the pairing fits with a group breeding project about seasonals.)

 

I think I'm even going to add my other V-Day-kins to the mix. tongue.gif Love is in the air!
