http://flightrising.com/rendern/350/6134/613372_350.png I just hatched the cutest noodle baby ahhhh

His tert is coral which is a swing and a miss but the rest of him makes up for that.

(Anonymous) 2013-09-09 09:10 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm thinking of gening these two babies, but I'm a newbie so I'm not sure which ones would look best, anons.

http://flightrising.com/rendern/350/6005/600497_350.png

This guy is purple/mulberry/gold. Probably gonna at least Circuit him.

http://flightrising.com/rendern/350/6005/600467_350.png

This girl is sky/green/coral.

I'd like to gene them because they're my first ever hatchlings and I like how they came out so I want to actually put work into them, but I have no idea what might look good. Help me, kind anons!

(Anonymous) 2013-09-09 09:18 pm (UTC)(link)
What to do depends on if you're gonna breed change 'em too.

Now as to the first, I personally think that gembond actually looks fantastic with gold - it's sort of a hit and miss gene, but gold is one that usually seems to be a hit. If you're thinking primary and secondary genes too, that's a little more varied - and again depends on if/what you're planning on changing them to, once again. For example feelings about seraph on skydancers are decidedly mixed, but stripes is just about universally loved.

The second... coral is one of the harder genes to work with for terts. Do not under any circumstances gembond her, coral gembond looks like boils. I'd suggest sticking to primary and secondary genes, tbh.

since we're asking for gene advice: http://trollslum.net/fr/?id=24,16,10,12,46,28,1

this is a basic ridgeback/snapper pair and idk what to do with them. HARD MODE don't just say iri/shimmer.

(Anonymous) 2013-09-09 09:41 pm (UTC)(link)
nooo don't shimmer the obsidian one, it goes all greeny and weird

stonewash iri (PRETTIEST OF ALL THE IRIS) and obsidian stripe / purple tiger or iri and shadow shimmer would be my recommendation

i already said this in a comment, but: fellow naturebros, stop undercutting genes and scrolls in the AH by the thousands. please. you only need to go under by like 100 because people will buy the cheapest thing. undercutting by such a drastic amount only hurts us all in the long run.

(Anonymous) 2013-09-10 12:37 am (UTC)(link)
the only positive here is that the gene scroll flow is limited so the dumbass undercutters can only have so many scrolls sold before people go to the next cheapest (providing everyone isn't being a dumb fuck and trying to undercut them)

(Anonymous) 2013-09-10 12:30 am (UTC)(link)

For those wondering what scrolls to sell:

Tiger will sell like hotcakes.

Eye spots also sell pretty fast.

Clown and seraph are good sellers but they won't sell as fast as tiger or eyespots unless there's a shortage. Demand tends to come in waves.

stripes will sell okay-ish, it's a slowish seller. It'll sell, but it's not always worth the effort.

Speckle and freckle: don't bother, it's a slower sell than stripes and the profit margin is crap.

breed change scrolls: only worth while in the beginning of the week if you can be a vigilant seller. There's a larger profit margin, but ten times as many people are going to be complete dumb fucks when it comes to undercutting. Also tends to be a slow sale and will get slower with more of the dumb fuck breed of undercutters as the week goes on. If you can make it work, do it, if not don't bother, it's a pain in the butt.

I am so fucking pissed. Almost two weeks ago a user pretty much begged me to trade one of their future hatchlings for the hatchling I was trying to sell. I actually liked their color combo, and was feeling nice (and not in desperate need of cash), so I said yes. Fast forward to today, one day before they breed, and they tell me no, they need money now, so they're backing out of the deal. Of course, prices of dragons have dropped like a rock since then, I'll never make as much now as I would have then, plus the dragon was eating my food all this time.

I shouldn't have made the trade. I'm more pissed at myself than that other user. What the hell was I thinking? Ugh. Anyone want an iri/stripes pc? Selling at half the price I was two weeks ago! >.<

(Anonymous) 2013-09-10 01:26 am (UTC)(link)
I feel bad for you, but... yeah, this is why I give a max hold time of 24 hours without some sort of deposit. You want me to hold this dragon for 2 weeks because you want to trade for a future hatchling? Fine, deposit of half the price I'm selling for now, refundable when you deliver your half of the deal. No hatchling? No refund.

On a lighter note, what does this PC look like?
