2017-10-31 - Happy Halloween!

Recommended Posts

OMGosh MATURE MATURE you lazy hatchies, out of the nest, rotate rotate *gets out and shoves them gently* I need to adopt new babies- my last batch hatched in 6 hours. We need a fledgling BSA for babies that refuse to grow up and leave the nest, LMAO

Well Witchlights in the AP are going *fast*, but I managed to catch 6 of them in the last half hour, so I now have my scroll-goal of Witchlights! I am just meeting goals all over the place this Halloween! Loving it!

Been picking up a lot of CBs in the AP like you guys... actually three pumpkins, the last I traded to get a CB witchlight to go with the other CB witchlight I picked up in the AP. One of the pumpkins also hatched right when I clicked it... thank goodness for precognition. 

 

(I've been trying to help clear Silvi's by sorting out the hatched eggs from the low time egg section but either even that's effected by DC's lag or Silvi's has it's own lag... hard to tell. Either way, while I'm trying to move the hatchies along from the low-time egg section, it's so slow at times I kind of lose patience.)

Silvi's has had it's own lag for quite a few months/years.

Looks like the spriter's alts aren't a thing anymore? Now it looks like I lied about seeing them, lol.

I saw the spriter's alt too, one of them, when it first hatched. I guess that TJ turned it off so they could grow without attracting dangerous levels of attention?

Yeah no, I saw them, too. I gotta imagine that TJ turned them off for that reason, because they were in Silvi's ER, which worried me. Hopefully we can see them again grown up.

Okay, can anyone recommend some working hatcheries? I have my eggs in Allure, Eggs around the World, and Silvi's, but they don't seem to be getting many views at all. I've tried DragHatch, EggDrop Soup, and Dragon Cave Mansion, and they are all giving me errors. I really want this batch to hatch before I have to go to bed.

Valley Sherwood, maybe? It seems fine to me.

Valley Sherwood works, though I've been on a hiatus for a while so I can't say how active it is.

Oh I assumed SAs were protected like CB prize babies are :x

I'm trying to clear out the hatched ERs in Silvi's too but I'm fighting a losing battle.

Yes it's laggy too which doesn't help and now caves down for maintenance

Wonder if we were to grab as many CBs as possible at least 5hrs before the new release, and then abandon them all once the new release comes out. 
Maybe then we'd get a lot more CBs to grab now? Does DC work like this?

Well, yeah. Anything that people abandon goes to the AP. The eggs people are fishing out of the AP were all, every single one, abandoned there by someone else (or auto-abandoned by someone breeding). So definitely, if a lot of people made a point of abandoning into the AP, there would be more eggs. The thing is, people already do this. :P Not everyone does, of course, and this year the focus was mostly on abandoning batches of the 2017 new Halloween rather than spending the week beforehand abandoning the old CBs into the AP (mainly because the existence of the Halloween biome is new this year and no one was expecting it, hence no one had plans for it, whereas the plans for the new Halloween were made ahead of time.) Even on a more casual level, though, plenty of people have abandoned the older CBs. My very first AP catch tonight after hatching out the last of my 2017s is a CB Desipis, and my friend BSD landed a CB Pumpkin tonight too. And I know, among my friends, that at least four or five CB old Halloweens were abandoned over the course of the event due to various reasons (mostly misclicks during competitive grabbing.)

Yea, some people do abandon CBs before the new release but i was thinking what if more people did this. I didn't realise how many more people would've gotten CB if I grabbed them and abandoned them later.
I caught a CB Ghost walker today.

I'm sure more people will next year. Like I said, this year it was a surprise, and an enormous one. You have to remember that the Halloween biome didn't exist until now. Before this year, if you missed out on a given holiday dragon (for any of the three holidays), that was it. You could NEVER have even a single CB of that breed, EVER, with the extremely unlikely possible exception in some years of winning Honorable Mention/Runner Up in the Christmas lottery (and even then most people would choose something like a female Holly or a CB hybrid or alt black/vine, given that those were also options at the time.) Some people have been waiting since '08 or '09 or something like that (whichever year it was that Pumpkins were new.) So this year, there just wasn't going to be a lot of organized, large scale abandoning going on. People were just too excited and focused on getting those special breeds they'd missed out on for all those years. Next year, I'm quite sure there will be an organized abandonment drive for the Halloween biome just like there was this year (and, AFAIK, years past) for the new species.

Oh my, being half-asleep and unexpectedly seeing three sets of Witchlight-egg eyes staring at you is kinda jarring, lol.

 

code-wise I have macbr, which of course makes me think 'macabre', and a code with 'tdp' which is the initals of a friend's indie publishing company. (caps all messed of course)

I got some great codes from the AP! I'm angling to trade for some other good ones, too, but here are what I've actually acquired so far:

 

https://dragcave.net/lineage/B0PXB

I've got to find a Gen2 or CB with a code like "hitme" or "iXhit" or something like that to be this one's mate. It would be too perfect.

https://dragcave.net/lineage/SiKHi

Sikhi reads, in my mind, as "sicky". Which just seems very appropriate. I just realized you could also read it as 'sik him' if you fill in the M mentally.

https://dragcave.net/lineage/uOGR3

This one is just magnificent. "You OGRE!"

https://dragcave.net/lineage/31kes

Elks. Last year I also found a Halloween dragon with an 'elk' code. 31elk IIRC.

https://dragcave.net/lineage/hiNkD

And finally, this guy, whose code reads in my head as "hinked". I'm trying to come up with a name involving hijinks or jinxes or something. Hinked and Jinxed? 

 

These aren't AP grabs, they were collected from the biomes or traded for, but they're too good not to share. Almost all of my 2017s got a code that's at least mildly amusing. I guess that's the benefit of doing that many-drops-to-the-AP thing; even though I was grabbing randomly at the biome for the most part, I got to keep the ones with irresistible codes and abandon the rest five or six hours later. By the last batch, the biomes were moving slowly enough that I did have the luxury to code hunt. I have my eye on a few more that are up for trade, too, but I have yet to secure them... *crosses fingers*

 

https://dragcave.net/lineage/ICFia

I am totally in love with this code. "I see fire!"

https://dragcave.net/lineage/xsABr

This is SO close to being a really incredible word code - sabre. And it's close enough to still be a very cool code. His name is going to have to involve sabre somehow. I might even write an item called the X-Sabre into his description or something. I just dig this one so much.

https://dragcave.net/lineage/8fabr

This was not traded for, nor did I target it for its code. It was only after I caught it that I realized I'd gotten a near-match to the one above. It was part of a batch I was supposed to be dropping, but like the other one, I just had to keep it. I ended up AP-dropping a few less eggs overall because I kept these two, but it's so worth it. I can't decide if this guy is 'Fab', 'Fabber', or if it's the first part of a word like Fabric. Or Fabricate.

https://dragcave.net/lineage/8scvn

This one is only funny if you're a Starcraft fan, but I am, so it amused me. It's SCV-in'!

https://dragcave.net/lineage/zQLEr

Z code, but also, it reads to me as 'squealer', which is great.

https://dragcave.net/lineage/ojesC

This could be "Oh, Jessie" or "Oh, jes' see!" (as in, 'oh just go see' with a drawl). 

https://dragcave.net/lineage/Duezd
You gotta pay your duez, dawg. The best code in the batch by objective standards (capitalization, spelling, etc.)

https://dragcave.net/lineage/Mr0TH

So, SO close to being an excellent 'moth'. Alas. It's still a cool 'Mister Oth'.

Maybe this should be a new thread... People could make posts to archive their best cool and 'almost cool' codes. Or does that overlap existing threads too much?

maybe this has been brought up before, or it's the wrong place for it, but...

 

why don't Pumpkin Dragons have a pygmy egg, since, ya know... tiny punkin dragons?
