DC 15th Birthday Mechanism (& Breeding) Thread - Floret Focus

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Since no one else was going to do it...

 

Welcome to the...

 

Dragon Cave 15th Birthday Mechanism (and Breeding) Thread

Cantormaris_egg.gif?format=originalCopper_Pennybright_egg.gif?format=originElectric_egg.png?format=originalFloret_Iris_pink_egg.gif?format=originalFloret_Alstro_pink_egg.gif?format=originFloret_Alstro_purple_egg.gif?format=origFloret_Alstro_gold_egg.gif?format=originGemshard_egg.png?format=originalGemshard_egg.png?format=originalGemshard_egg.png?format=originalNilia_green_egg.gif?format=originalRoyal_Eminence_egg.png?format=originalSapphire_pink_egg.gif?format=originalSapphire_yellow_egg.gif?format=original
 

For all your breeding needs!

 

If you are here, then you are one of the many, many people who are like:

"How in [insert your preferred phrase here] do I get these dragons????"

 

Or possibly, you are more along the lines of:

"How do I get [insert dragon] again?

Or

"I need another explanation, because I still don't get it."

Or

"I'm here to breed my Florets FOR SCIENCE!"

 

If I'm correct about any of these, WELCOME! If I'm not, THANKS FOR VISITING ANYWAY!

 

The Goal of this thread is to record and figure out all the mechanisms for all the dragons released on the 15th Birthday of Dragon Cave!

 

Good news: We figure most of them! 

 

Bad news: There are still things that need defining. 

 

How can you help? By entering into the spreadsheet below your attempts at getting these dragons:

The DC Birthday 2021 Variant/Alt/Hybrid Tracking & Mechanism List

We are mostly focused on the Florets right now, but anything in Red on the spreadsheet needs verifying!

 

Now for what everyone wants to know, how to get these freaking dragons:

Breeding

Also, feel free to post your breeding attempts and favorite lineages! Especially for the Florets!

 

Though for specific threads:

  • Cantomaris Breeding
  • Copper Breeding
  • Gemshard Breeding
  • Pygmy Breeding
  • Royal Eminence Breeding

 

Edit:

Expect Gemshard cyclers eventually!

Also, if anyone could make a second post, so I can reserve a post, that'd be good.

On a different note, does anyone have Adult Pink Irises?


If so, have you tried breeding them? And have you gotten alts from them?

I had bred a third gen that I gaveaway, but that does not show up as an offspring on my dragons, so I don't know what is going on with that.

Thank you so much for this thread! It's very informative.

 

I realize my mistake after reading this thread now.

I was too impatient and I abandoned the egg way too early. I thought I was doing it wrong. But looks now I should have added it to more click sites and got the views to 4000 😕

I'll try again following these instructions.

Thanks again!

Aww, sorry. If it helps, Sapphire eggs usually turn shortly after they reach 4000 overall views (like around 4020-4080 views).

 

At least the egg is pink now.

All my pairings are giving me only peach and nothing but peach... except for one pair, that gave me a brown egg AND a blue egg https://dragcave.net/progeny/Kdevx

Spreadsheet updated!

 

I'm actually starting to wonder if all Floret Alstro x Non-Floret pairs will only give Pink Alstros, even the Alt Alstros.

 

Edit: Review my spreadsheet again and there is one case of an Floret Alsto Gold x Non-Floret breeding a Gold Alstro Floret egg.

 

Let see if any more "Breeding True" events pop up.

 

Also, did anyone try a Copper X Secondary Lightning Element, yet? 

 

If you did, can I post the result to the spreasheet?

Yes to the Aeria Gloris, though Astrapi is primary Lightning. The Galvanics are secondary lightning though. 


Thank you!

 

Also, has anyone bred a Pink Iris Floret Yet?

Just found this topic (thanks @Shokomon for tagging me in the post so I got a notice!).

 

I have an update on magenta eggs: like the other colors, they are possible with every combination of the iris floret x peach alstro.
I don't think it's kosher to list them because they're not mine, but so far I have personally seen nine besides TJ's.

  • 1 gold male x peach female
  • 2 peach male x gold female
  • 1 peach male x purple female
  • 5(!) purple male x peach female (with only nine data points I don't know if it's significant that the vast majority are from this color combo)

I have also been checking the lineages of the other colors that show up in the hatcheries, and I can confirm that all of the new colors can come out of any combination of a peach with a gold or purple—although the most common result BY FAR is a peach egg. (And after a second round of breeding I yet again only got peach eggs myself.)

 

As far as 2nd gen results go, it's proven that all of the colors are available as long as one of the parents is peach and the other is an iris floret. We need to look to 3rd generation or higher to answer most of the remaining questions.

 

Given: peach x peach should yield only peach.

  • Does this mean that purple x purple and gold x gold will also now breed true?
  • Do the alt colors breed true? (Has anybody tried a bronze x bronze, etc?)
  • Can you get an alt color with an alstro x alstro or iris x iris? For this second generation it HAD to be alstro x iris because the peach color was required—but is that true going forward? (My theory is that they require an alstro x iris pairing but it will take a LOT of breeding to confirm that.)
  • We have seen proof that a purple can lay a gold egg and vice versa, but I have only seen that when the mate was a different breed. Are there any recent (since the rules may have changed) of a matched-color iris pairing giving the other color of egg?

It's great to know that they can breed true. I've been told coppers have convoluted breeding rules, which I have not read, so I don't know if this will always be true.

That's awesome!! At least one instance of an alt color breeding true.

...and one that didn't.

 

Both of these were paired with non-florets, and had completely opposite results.

@Shokomon :wub: 🐣 happy I was of help this time

Edit: Just now I was able to pick up 2 Sapphires from the AP. PB ones. Thing is... they were still blue. So I did what I had to do... Good luck catching them again. Should be pink now :D

Almost time for a new round of Floret experiments!  I should have some 3rd-gens to add to the list, this time.  Also, I'm still curious to see if the biome/color of the alt drop rotates, or if it will always be this way. 

 

I have to say, I LOVE these sprites, both Iris and Alstro.  I'm absolutely addicted to collecting them!  Can hardly pass up any eggs in the AP, even!
