Question about original Vampire Dragons

Recommended Posts

I'll already apologize in advance in case this is a completely stupid question, but how exactly were Vampire Dragons originally obtained? I mean the Vampire Dragons who were not bitten by any other Vampire. I was under the impression that they somehow appeared on people's scrolls as eggs with their location set as "Cave" based on what the wiki said, but I still feel a little confused about that.

 

The reason why I wish to know is because I just picked up an egg bitten by a lineaged Vampire that supposedly had no other Vampire bite it for it to turn. Does this mean that the lineaged Vampire is an original Vampire or has the Vampire who bit the lineaged Vampire simply passed away or something similar? I mainly want to know because I only ever want to keep a Vampire if it is CB and bitten by an original Vampire. (Seeing as it has apparently been impossible to get any new original vampires since the Halloween event in which they were introduced - otherwise I'd only keep an original CB.)

Originally, Vampires were the Halloween breed of 2008, as far as I know.

About a year later or so, they were modified to have the Bite BSA, but bitten eggs did not yet retain a "bitten by:" record. That was added sometime mid 2010.

 

So Original Vampires would be from 2008, "fake" CBs from early 2010 and every newer Vampire would be "lineaged".

That lineaged vamp you linked was bitten but it was before the biters were recorded, if that wasn't clear from what ruby eyes said.

I see, thank you both for the explanation. I will toss this one and continue to look for ones bitten by a true CB instead then.

Yeah, I think I understood what you meant with the fake CB. Hmm, fair enough. I'm not really in a rush to get any Vampires to be honest, but since CBs before the bitten by records apparently look identical to an actual original Vampire save for their year, I suppose I'll just aim for a one bitten by a fake CB instead if I eventually feel like hunting for some.

 

Edit: Just wanted to add because I feel like I sounded a bit brusque there - thank you for the examples and for convincing me not to pursue an egg bitten by a completely original 2008 Vampire. I can be very stubborn and may have had an issue with it later had you not discouraged me. I suppose even getting a one bitten by a 2010 fake CB will cost an arm and a leg, but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

It's been a long time but I'm pretty sure we hunted them in the cave just like a normal holiday release. IIRC they were kinda easy to miss since holiday dragons didn't flood quite like they do now and we only had the one cave back then so even though the player base was much smaller, competition was still fierce. Plus since they were the first Halloween event dragons, their release caught many of us by surprise and some players didn't even know about them until after the event was over.

 

If you're looking for a Vampire bitten by an original, I'd be willing to give it a try with my boy. :) He's on cooldown right now but will be ready to bite in 9 days or so, feel free to shoot me a PM. Locating players with OG Vamps isn't the easiest thing but I haven't seen anyone try to charge a high price for a bite. In fact not many people ask for bites at all these days, in almost ten years I've never had anyone request one from Galvanis. So I'd say they can be tough to find, but not exactly valuable. XD

Oh, that would be amazing! It's a relief to hear that they might not even be that expensive nowadays. If it's not too much of a bother, I would definitely really appreciate any CB egg bitten by him. :3 Waiting for a cooldown or few is not an issue to me at all. (Saying this knowing that it might not even succeed on the first try.)

I don't often use the Bite action in general since it has such a long cooldown and I don't need anymore Vamps, but I do have two original 2008 Vamps. I believe they are on cooldown right now but I can make a note to try for you when they are available if you want. 

 

(Omg I remember the drama with the original Vamp release, people were convinced the new Vamps were actually somehow killing eggs on their scrolls just by having a Vamp on their scroll, that was chaos!)

Thank you for the kind offer. However I already sent Terces a PM about an egg bitten by Galvanis and feel like it might be best to see what comes out of that first. 🙂 I read on the wiki that there had been some kind of chaos regarding the release of the Vampires. Having witnessed the forum storm that the Siyats caused I can only imagine what that must have been like.

Plus there was terrible lag. When I read how we hunted 'back then', I feel like we remember some kind of Dargon Cave Dunkurque. :P
