breeds ungened starters to get exalt bait for arcane dominance push

I'd buy him off you, but I don't have the funds

Someone asked me to tell what would come out of it. The admins mailed me saying that it would be "investigated and appropriate action will be taken". I checked and the dragon is Unnamed.

price check on an ungened shadow/navy/thistle male skydancer? when i checked an hour ago, the lowest prices for skydancers were 140, so he's currently up at 150. too little? too much?

(Anonymous) 2013-09-18 09:26 am (UTC)(link)
150 is probably fine. If there's a dragon with the exact same colours as yours there might be a problem, but otherwise, he'll probably be fine.

(Anonymous) 2013-09-18 09:10 am (UTC)(link)
There was seriously someone who Circuit gened a triple to drive the price up. I only know because I checked the parents so I could rangecheck them because the baby was beautiful, but I don't like doubles or triples all that much so I wanted to see if he'd have any siblings with a bit more variety in their primary and secondary together. Neither parent had Circuit.

What the fuck. You can't even see the circuit literally all you're trying to do is squeeze more money out of someone you greedy little shit.

(Anonymous) 2013-09-18 09:12 am (UTC)(link)
wow. i wonder how that's working out for them? the circuit can't have driven the price up enough to compensate for the cost

Of all the people to list dragons at stupid prices, I keep seeing Vadeski putting double- and triple-gened imperials up at barely over 200k. I guess he has so much money now it doesn't matter to him how much he loses.

(Anonymous) 2013-09-18 09:32 am (UTC)(link)
why because it's not 800K?

So I have a Mirror that I had originally bought because he had a nice spread with one of my other dragons, even if his colors aren't that great (swamp lavender.) But his clutches never really threw good colors and now that I'm actually able to afford rarer breeds I want to boot him out. Problem is, well he's a swamp/lavender mirror, so I really don't think he'll sell for much. He's also level 6, so at this point I'm wondering am I better off exalting him or should I actually try to sell him for more than I would get for sending him off?

(Anonymous) 2013-09-18 01:09 pm (UTC)(link)
if I were you I'd level him up at much as you are willing to give the time for him and then exalt.

I exalted a four-level fae once and I received around 6 K for exalting him. So theoretically you might get more from exalting your mirror than you will from trying to sell him off

and it's down.

here's hoping that the search engine won't bog down the site again.

(Anonymous) 2013-09-18 01:49 pm (UTC)(link)
i knew this was coming, the imperial price drop, and it doesn't really affect me much, but i'm still kinda sad. i spent a while on wajas and the 'economy' there basically makes the game a piece of shit because you can make enough money in a single 'click this card and get a random amount of money' daily game to buy a decent waja. i hope that FR eventually implements some features of the cool exalting overhaul someone suggested (i don't like every feature but most are neat) and also make it very rewarding to exalt high-rarity breeds or something. with such shit games it kind of sucks if breeding isn't a reliable way to make some cash.

(Anonymous) 2013-09-18 01:50 pm (UTC)(link)
seeing as how i only ever visit the forums during downtime, what are your favorite ridiculous forum threads? favorite least favorite users?

dember's wolfdog thread is still taking off and another backyard wolfdog breeder (who is also a wolfdog otherkin) has stepped into the fray. :') i love this stupid community.

I refuse to even dignify that foul remark with a response, with the exception of the explanations I have already given to the equally rude individuals thus far.

From here on out, any off-topic insults will result in being reported with or without acknowledgement.

Such harassment is defined as a breach of the terms of service, as the moderator @Lune pointed out on page 5 - though both my numerous requests along with the staff's reminder have gone disregarded.

I apologize, but this is far past due and I have tolerated it long enough.

(Anonymous) 2013-09-18 02:04 pm (UTC)(link)
that thread just makes me sad. 'backyard' breeding is irresponsible enough, but breeding wolfdogs is just reckless and bound to end in dogs getting put down.

the otherkin thread, however, is a riot

Dear progens,
"Exalt-bait" does not mean "azure/rose/avocado Fae". Too cute to exalt, too basic to sell.

(Anonymous) 2013-09-18 03:15 pm (UTC)(link)
And look at all the greedy people, talking about reselling at high prices.

Why does it matter that Imps go down to 200K? They were going to drop eventually. By artificially keeping them at a price higher in value than their numbers would say, you really are only helping yourselves get rich while people who want them have to save for weeks if they want even just one. They'd still have to save a lot for an Imp at 200K, and if treasure becomes more plentiful, the prices will rise to compensate.

Why are there so many people who want imps to be entirely out of reach for the majority of the site, just so they can get rich on a fucking game about breeding dragons?

so i have a black/white/fire basic imp who is level 13 and fire element

she's been great for leveling up other dragons, but i'm replacing her with a physical dragon (instead of getting a tincture of dissolution)

i don't know what to do with her... her colours are desirable so it feels weird to think of exalting, but i'd get pretty good money since she's level 13, and her physical dragon battle replacement is almost ready

That's okay. I looked up the ideal mate for one of my Imperials. Only one exists on the entire site.

On the plus side, it's a Wildclaw.

On the minus side, I'm too chickenshit to ask someone if they'd be willing to hold a Wildclaw that's RTB tomorrow to stud with my Imperial lady when the range isn't one most people would be after.

If any of this is true, then what's the point of there being a rarity system when every dragon is intended to be worth the same? I'm not whining about ~the economy~, I'm just completely stumped at the creators' logic (or lack thereof) regarding this.
