Share your Christmas breeding ideas for inspiration and feedback!

Recommended Posts

This topic has been approved by purpledragonclaw. 

 

Now that more people have CB Christmas dragons, including older releases, we aren't always sure what to breed with them.  🤔 Sometimes it's tricky to figure out what holiday pairings to breed, and inspiration helps! ❄️

 

This is a freeform brainstorming thread for all years of Christmas dragons! Pair them with commons, uncommons, rares, or other holidays. 

 

Share your breeding ideas and gather inspiration for nice holiday pairings! ^_^

 

Feel free to ask for feedback if you are looking for your perfect pairing. :)

 

Or feel free to chime in and help us imagine the possibilities!  Think of this thread as a giant, infinite whiteboard. alot 

 

This is not a thread for trading or gifting, only for sharing ideas. 

 

Let the brainstorming begin! :nyan: 

 

 

**(While we have individual threads created when a dragon was released, it can be daunting to visit each thread to gather ideas during busy holiday preparations. And those threads may not contain newly released dragons/pairings.)

Most members don't like holiday x holiday pairs. I myself have always loved them, even though they are so slow to build up. I'll be sending out Christmas versions of this & this.

 

I'll probably throw out a couple of 4th gen gold x holly combos that should have been a 5th gen by now but isn't thanks to piss-poor breeding over the last year, can't breed a gold for the life of me. 

 

I have a few enraged aegis pairs. Enraged with aria. with gaia, with winter seasonal, with terrae & with caligene

 

Normal aegis with witchlight. I might have a corresponding witchlight sonewhere, but in all honesty I haven't been breeding my pairs as frequently as I used to. I'll probably add to this list later, as it will take forever for me to list everything.

@Siliskor, I have done holiday x holiday breedings in the past! They are lovely. :) I did a Radiant Angel x Mistletoe that is pretty; although I don’t think I made it to 4th gen.

 

I’m trying to decide what to do with my Enraged Aegis and my pacified Aegis this year.  I’m considering Winter or Green for my Enraegis and maybe Red for my Pacified Aegis. I can’t decide about either.  The Red looks striking against the frosty blue of the Pacified Aegis, but I’m always up for more suggestions! 
 

The Enraegis x Green looks lovely. It was a nice surprise.

They do go very well together. I would not have expected that.

I have enraged with Floral, Pyro, and Monarchs. All pretty monochromatic.

Pacified I have Hellfire, Script, Nebula, Bronze Lunar, and Tercorn. All AP finds.

 

My only Holiday x Holiday is Solstice x Snow, which I love!

purplehaze, those are some pretty combos. Thanks for sharing! That Solstice x Snow is lovely. 😍 That Aegis x Hellfire is surprisingly lovely.

Mistletoe looks nice with Astaarus and with Pharos as well.

 

Peaceful Aegis and Anagallis is an interesting combo.

 

Snow looks good with a lot: Diamondwing, Aeon, Floret, Blue Fire Gem.

 

Glystere Wyrm x Umbra is surprisingly pretty.

 

catstaff, my favorite is the Snow x Aeon.  The Peaceful Aegis x Anagallis is unexpectedly pretty!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Here are some of the ones I am thinking of, or definitely planned on. 

 

I'll try to post some screenshots later.

 

Definite:

 

❄️ Snow x Yellow Sapphire —Love this pairing!

 

❄️ Yulebuck x White Striped.

 

❄️ Rosy-Winged Solstice x Citrine Gemshard -- Wow!

 

 

 

Deciding between these pairings:

 

❄️ Starsinger: Either Crystalline or Winter. I'm leaning toward Crystalline. Thoughts? 

 

 ❄️ Snow Angel (White winged) x Neotropical is 99% because it's so pretty.  Still, am looking for other pretty pairings. Any other ideas?  

 

 

 

Still considering what to pair with:

 

❄️ Glystere Wyrm -- Mind is blank; I like it with Bolts a lot! Any other ideas?

 

❄️ Wintertide -- I have bred these in the past with Plated Colossus and love this combo. I'll be working to further this combo's generations, but I'm looking for new pairing ideas.

 

❄️ Holly -- One of my all-time favorite dragons, so I have to do a pairing.  

Possibilities:  

1. Continue Neotropical line I started with one of them. 

2. Mints from Upside Down Mint base (I only have one female though, so I can only breed one of these.)

3. Equinox! This is such a lovely dragon with so many Christmasy dragons it seems. :wub: I haven't used it yet in any pairings. 

(Note: I have already gotten a Holly x Winter line to 4th gen; and I LOVE that line. This year, I want to focus on something green.)

I love all of these pairings and can't decide.

Any new green pairings to add to my confusion? XD

 

❄️ Ribbon Dancer -- Possibly Vine, Equinox or ... ?

 

❄️ Wrapping Wing -- My mind is blank. 

 

❄️ ETA: Mistletoe -- maybe Royal Crimson, Black Truffle, Green Gemshard, or Red.

For Holly, how about Almerald? (You know, a new green pairing to add to your confusion! 🤣)

 

For Ribbon Dancer, perhaps Aeon or Red.

 

And for Wrapping Wing, Mint is pretty classic and Red Nebula looks lovely even though it's a pain in the tail at times to breed for.

Looking at this thread is nice! It gives me ideas of what people would want and so helps me decide on what to breed my CBs to to auto-abandon!

 

I'm really fond of Glystere x Elux Lucishttps://dragcave.net/lineage/3wKoy

Yes, just what I need ... another green for confusion. XD Think I'm going with Upside Down Mint for one Holly and Equinox for the other.  Although that means next year I'll have to breed the other to an Equinox ...

 

That Aeon x Ribbon Dancer is pretty!  I'm leaning toward either Royal Crimson (love that combo!) or Equinox. I'm 50/50 on which. 

 

I've previously done Wrapping Wing x Mint -- that Red Nebula is quite lovely.  Still haven't decided!

 

Indecisive on Glystere, Wrapping Wing, and Wintertide.  Wintertide is lovely with Gold, but I'm thinking a common/uncommon combo would be fun.  The Plated Colossus looks so good with Wintertide, it will be hard to top! 

 

@Ruffledfeathers that is a pretty Holly combo! @Kiyoura that is pretty! I also saw your Aqua Gemshard pairing; very nice.

 

For Mistletoe, I happened upon a Mistletoe x Green Gemshard checker, and ... wow! Also ... Black Truffle, Royal Crimson.

I saw a Holly x Ribbon Dancer today; lovely.  I know what you mean about them being slow to build up.  I’ve decided to focus on non-holiday pairings this year. Your Enraged Aegis pairings are pretty.  I’ve decided to breed my one to Winter this year to further a lineage.

There is a few Holiday lineages I've been trying to work on because I just love the combination of them:

 

Solstice x Equinox

 

Starsinger x Candelabra

 

Glystere x Stratos

 


Love that Solstice x Equinox! I ended up breeding one of my Hollies with Equinox, along with both of my Ribbon Dancers.

 

I saw a new pairing with Glystere that is a treat: Glystere x Blue Electric.

purplehaze, I think my favorites so far with the Glystere are Yellow Sapphire, Green Fire Gem, and Brown Copper. Although I also have an unexpected weakness for Balloon, Aria, and Equinox. I meant to work up a 4th gen with Deep Sea.

Garland x Amethyst Gemshard

Rosy-Winged Solstice x Mirisia

Rosy-Winged Solstice x Cantormaris Itus

Rosy-Winged Solstice x Oracle Wyrm

Rosy-Winged Solstice x Pink Sapphire

Rosy-Winged Solstice x Yellow Sapphire

 

For Wrapping Wing:

 

Wrapping Wing x Dark Shumoga

Wrapping Wing x Cantormaris Tutela

Wrapping Wing x Cantormaris Motus

 

For Wintertide:


Wintertide x Obidar

Wintertide x Verdigris Copper

Wintertide x Frill

Wintertide x Equinox

Wintertide x Green Fire Gem

Wintertide x Black Truffle

Wintertide x Royal Crimson
