Recommended Posts

alright let's see, we've got

 

1. Western / DC Drake / Two-Headed Dragons(while loosing a head?) - 2. Traditional Drake

3. Wyvern - 4. Leviathan

5. Eastern - 6. Amphiptere / Lindwurm(?)

 

Just a bit of clarification. More discussion has been going at zombie success thread.

1. Western (Red, Albino) - 2. Traditional Drake (Dorsal, Terrae)

3. Wyverns (BBW, Coastal) - 4. Leviathan (Water)

5. Eastern (Silver, Striped River) - 6. Amphiptere (Sunsong)

7. Wyrm (Xenowyrms)

 

The mentioned 8th one is the Lindwurm, so far haven't seen one.

 

DC Drakes, Pygmies and Two-Headeds (the restricted breeding groups) will eventually get their own Zombie Sprites, like stated in first post as "Coming Soon™"

Wait, so old Pinks (Arias) are no longer a female-only breed? It looks like I can influence them, so that must be true...

That's something for future generations to complain about: "I will never be able to breed an Aria and get a Pink! I joined too late!" wink.gif

Somehow i feel like those (possible) complaints will never reach the level of intensity of "Too bad Bright Pink and Frilled are retired" ! So the decision to un-retire them far outweighs in pleasing people biggrin.gif If it'll ever cause anything in a somewhat large scale, it'll be confusion from future newbies who will stumble upon those unique pink lineages biggrin.gif like "how is that possible, why can't i replicate that?". Time will tell but i'm sure there won't be much trouble surrounding such lineages.

Happy birthday DC, you old fart. wink.gif To have reached 10 years is an amazing achievement when you consider how many other similar sites have come and gone in that time.

 

By far my favourite part of this anniversary celebrations is the return of the Old Pinks and Frills. Both dragons I loved, but had just 3 of each.

good gosh golly, that's a lot of good zombie dragons...o.o

 

i've never gotten even one, just cause on principle i have trouble killing dragons over an uncertainty...plus i try to hoard as many Halloweens as i can for my favorite holiday. but me thinks perhaps this year i might just have to try my hand at getting these zombies...

Why did they need to be changed? They looked perfectly fine before...

I wish the new eggs and the old returned eggs could drop often enough for everyone to grab after the first batches hatch, there's no way to get them all today!!!

You can actually kill the "Zombie Fodder" dragons 2 weeks before the Halloween event, given that is the time when tombstones are visible on scroll. So the slots won't be occupied on the day when you revive on 31st.

Some people even go with route of raising hatchlings and fogging them, getting multiple hatchlings to try and revive on more appropriate date as Zombies.

well guess i'll just have to try it this year then! nothing stopping me except my morals which tell me it's not good to try killing my dragons...tongue.gif

 

silly me has been out of DC so long, i confused Neglecteds with Zombies and thought i could just be lazy and trade for Zombies, but then i remembered adult's can't be traded and i don't believe frozen hatchies can trade either...xd.png yup i'mma derp.

I dont wanna lose my bright pink based checker lineages. sad.gif

Just look at the male's whiskers, so cute!

I also can't see why they were changed so much,

just adding the whiskers would do without turning the shading to look so much cell shaded now... To me the sprites lost depth with that new shading... I'm neutral on the whiskers, if they should have them, nice then now have them, but the shading, well... not a fan of. Okay,t he wings might have a bit better frame and contrast but the shading looks too simple now, without all that blending:P

AND I'm FOR sprite updates normally (I'm NOT anti-every-single-change-of-the-old)... I only ever complained about female Nhilia pygmy update so far (because of the very long legs), and I don't really like the new Bloodscale shading compared to the old one and that's it, all the other updates had my applause. Meh.

But who cares about our disapproval xd.png

I agree. I really enjoyed the more natural looking shading style of the previous version. the only change I like here is the whiskers and the slightly updated wings. But the shading has made these guys a little less appealing to me, though they are still one of my favorites.

The bloodscale dragons were not updated just to give the male whiskers. They were updated to correct glaring anatomical errors, poor line quality, and poor shading.

 

Different strokes for different folks.
