The Flight Rising Legacy Challenge is a 10 generation breeding challenge. You begin with an ungened starter dragon. Next, you purchase a mate for that dragon and start the challenge. The goal is to end up with an attractive triple gened dragon.

When I started this challenge, I had absolutely no idea how long it would take! It’s been kind of tedious to go through the same steps, and follow the same rules, for each new generation. The biggest problem is that some breeds of dragons take longer than others to be ready for the Breeding Ground.

I have not learned how to time this well. I’m not giving up on it because I am more than halfway done with the challenge. All of the artwork in this post is copyright of Flight Rising.

The dragons of the fifth generation produce the dragons that become the sixth generation.  My fifth generation pair were Chico and Frostfall.

Chico is a male Guardian. He is the Founder of the fifth generation.
Primary: Storm Basic
Secondary: Steel Basic
Tertiary: Blue Basic

I forgot to get a screenshot of him wearing the Frigid Emblem that marks the Founder of each generation.

Frostfall is a female Pearlcatcher.
Primary: Storm Iridescent
Secondary: Blue Shimmer
Tertiary: Blue Crackle

I had absolutely no idea what their babies would look like.  The only thing that was certain was that these two dragon parents could not possibly produce a triple gened baby.  That means they cannot produce a baby that has X/X/X genes.  For example, I would not get a Storm/Storm/Storm baby dragon from this pair.  The ultimate goal of the Flight Rising Legacy Challenge was to produce an attractive triple gened dragon.  I have doubts that I will manage to do that.

I like to use the “Preview Offspring” function in order to get a glimpse of what the babies of two paired dragons might look like.  The preview is not a guarantee.  It is just a guess based on the potential genes that the baby dragons might have.  As you can see, the “Preview Offspring” function wasn’t too sure what to predict.

Chico and Frostfall produced 3 eggs.

 

Here is what their babies looked like!

The first baby in the row becomes the heir.  That heir will become the Founder for the next generation after it grows up and becomes an adult.

Norbert is a male Guardian.
Primary: Storm Iridescent
Secondary: Splash Basic
Tertiary: Blue Basic

Here is what Norbert looked like after he grew up.

Norbert had two siblings.  I didn’t need them for the Challenge, and the rules say that you can do whatever you want with the “extra” babies.  I decided to put them into the Auction House.  I’m at the point where I’m having a hard time feeding all my dragons (again).   Before I sent them to the Auction House, I used the random name generator to give each one a name.   Each baby sold and was exalted.

Stormweaver is a male Pearlcatcher.
Primary: Storm Basic
Secondary: Steel Basic
Tertiary: Blue Basic

Xanthia is a female Pearlcatcher.
Primary: Storm Basic
Secondary: Stonewash Basic
Tertiary: Blue Basic

Norbert is the Founder for the sixth generation.  The next step was to go to the Auction House and find him a mate.  There are rules that limit what dragon I can buy.  Obviously, his mate must be female.  She has to come from the Shadow Flight (which is the one my Dragon Lair is in).  She has to be a dragon that has not yet produced any babies.  I had to find one that fit those criteria and that cost 60,000 Treasure (or less).

The best choice was an unnamed dragon that was at a surprising low price.  I ended up naming her Xin.  She cost only 13,999 Treasure.

Xin is a female Imperial.
Primary: Storm Iridescent
Secondary: Splash Shimmer
Tertiary: Splash Underbelly

Here is what she looked like as an adult.

Now, I need to wait until Norbert and Xin are ready to breed.  They are my sixth generation of dragons.  They will produce the seventh generation of dragons.  My hope is that these two dragons will produce a baby that has Storm Iridescent as a primary gene and Splash Basic as the secondary and tertiary gene.  If that happens, I can look for a dragon that has three splash genes (and fits the other criteria) as the mate.

At the time I am writing this blog, Norbert has 8 days before he can breed and Xin has 19 days before she can breed.  It will be a while before I can blog about the seventh generation of dragons.

POINTS:
* First Generation – Founder – no points
* First Generation – Mate – no points
* Second Generation – 3 hatchlings, all Tundra (1 point for each) – 3 points
* Second Generation – Treasure Genes (3 points for each) – Unnamed male has Blue Underbelly – 3 points
