I'm not the only one digging into search and laughing at cute and funny dragon names am I?

(Anonymous) 2013-09-18 06:29 pm (UTC)(link)
So I have a WC and a SD that are on cool down I was planning on breeding but when I previewed some babies I am completely unsure if I should do it. Some of the possibilities are awesome, others...not so much. Do you guys think I should risk it?:

(All babies will actually have Shimmer, I just haven't gotten the gene yet for one of the parents.)

I've posted this elsewhere, so I'm outing myself, but that's cool. I just want some honest opinions before I hit "breed" since goddamn these dragons take a long time to cool down.

Wow! I like it!

Even the pink ones are great.

I say go for it. :)

Okay, I really have to ask this.

Why is 200K considered tanking in value? It's still out of reach of most people in the game.

(Anonymous) 2013-09-18 07:29 pm (UTC)(link)
because you could sell the exact same dragons for 500k+ a few weeks ago. from the point of view of someone trying to sell an imp and hoping to make a large profit, that's a big drop.

on the other hand, I think the 200k imps are really mostly the ungened ones... I'm going to breed some iri/shim imps in good colors in a couple of weeks and I think those are still pretty up there in price.

tl;dr people are just disappointed they won't be able to make as much as they hoped. it's like what's happening with all the other dragon breeds, but on a different scale.

I love that my familiars have pretty much become my money farms. I've been having a shitty and busy irl week, with not much time or motive to play games/coli farm. But clicking all 95 of those little critters have kept me in the 100k range.

I just wish I didn't have load up another whole page to change them, it'd save a shitton of time.

(Anonymous) 2013-09-18 11:56 pm (UTC)(link)
You might be doing this already, but here's my trick to get through my 88 familiars quickly.

Have two tabs open, one on the dragon, one on the change familiar window. Change the familiar, bond with it, but do not click okay. Go back to the other tab, change the familiar, go back to the dragon tab, and now click okay. The dragon page reloads with the new familiar, and you just saved yourself 1-2 page refreshes.

(Also, I find it faster to use a separate window instead of a different tab, and use Alt + Tab to go back and forth quickly.)

dragons on the ah

(Anonymous) 2013-09-18 11:55 pm (UTC)(link)
so there's 35 pages of dragons for between 1 and 4k treasure on the AH right now

and then there's 150 pages of them for the 4 - 5k range

I used to be one of those who hated having their own hatchlings sold off and then exalted before they even turn into adults. But then I hatched a bunch of ungene'd starter babies and they were eating up my food, so I sent most of them over to the arcanist. I feel no regret whatsoever.

I think my idea on sitting on babies and wait for them to grow and gorge on my food storage was pretty stupid of me. I'll just haunt the AH instead and find a few more adults (or babies a day close to being adults) to level up and exalt them instead.

What the hell, what kind of idiot would you pour that many gems into a dragon and then delete it?

(Anonymous) 2013-09-19 01:46 am (UTC)(link)
I'm going through the AH right now and am exalting every dragon I can find that's under 4k, and I'm in nature.

I honestly don't know when we're next going for dominance, I truly don't.

Anons, how many of you would like a breeder of nothing but jeweltone dragons? I mean, like:

http://blog.inspiredsilver.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/JewelTones-1.jpg

These are some examples. Rich colors. Stuff like this. I would't overcharge or anything, and they'd be normal prices, I just wonder how much of a market there'd be. o:

I kind of wish the flower petals were blowing in the wind dramatically, winding about the dragons' bodies in improbable yet picturesque spirals. As it is, it seems a little silly to have the petals be different for the breeds/genders. Oh well. There go my notice me sempai dragon dreams?

i kind of wish there was a way to have a farm of food within your lair

like, you 'plant' some ivy or release some snakes or bugs, which removes them from your hoard, and a few days later you can collect some more or allow them to grow/breed further

not enough to get rid of the need to gather/use the coliseum/buy food, but a supplement
