Flight Rising is a game where you get to manage a Lair that is filled with dragons.  One of the many things you can do with your dragons is breed them. The Flight Rising Legacy Challenge is a ten generation breeding challenge.  You start with a ungened plentiful dragon and hope to end with an attractive triple gened dragon.

I am very happy that I have now finished the challenge.  It wasn’t incredibly difficult, but it did take more time than I anticipated (mostly due to waiting for a pair of dragons to sync up and be able to breed). All of the artwork in this post is copyright of Flight Rising.

The ninth generation of dragons produce an Heir that becomes the Founder of the tenth generation.  My ninth generation dragons were Penelope and Zanril.

Penelope is a female Fae.
Primary: Navy Tiger
Secondary: Splash Freckle
Tertiary: Splash Basic

Zanril is a male Pearlcatcher.
Primary: Blue Tiger
Secondary: Blue Shimmer
Tertiary: Splash Basic

Ideally, this pair of dragons, the ninth generation, would produce an Heir that was triple gened.  I believed I had a good chance of having them produce a dragon that had Splash Basic as its Tertiary gene.  As for the rest… it was a gamble.

As always, I used the “Preview Offspring” tool to see what their potential babies might look like. The tool only shows you the possibilities – it is not a promise.  It is impossible to use the “Preview Offspring” tool in a way that will guarantee that your dragons produce the babies that were on the screen at the time you clicked “Confirm Breeding Pair”.  Outside of the challenge, I use the tool to see if the two dragons I selected will produce really ugly babies.  If so – I switch out one of the pair!

All of the baby dragons that the “Preview Offspring” tool showed me looked extremely similar. There was no doubt that Penelope and Zanril would produce pretty babies.  No matter how many times I hit the button, all I saw were very blue dragons.  The only thing different was the amount of Fae vs Pearlcatcher dragons that appeared.

To me, the color combinations I was shown indicated that these two dragons were not going to produce a triple gened baby dragon for me.  Of course, that was only a guess.  I’d have to wait and see.

Penelope and Zanril produced two eggs.  The first one would become the Heir.  Usually, that Heir would turn into the Founder of the next generation of dragons after he or she grew up.  This time, I was at the end of the Flight Rising Breeding Challenge.  I am under no obligation to continue to breed dragons after I finish the Challenge.

   The hatchlings were very pretty!

I’ve now got “an Heir and a spare” (as the saying goes).  The Heir is officially the last in the line of the ten generation challenge.  At first glance, I didn’t think it was a triple gened dragon.

I can now state, with absolute certainty, that I failed to produce a triple gened dragon as the Heir of the tenth generation.  However, I did manage to produce an attractive dragon.  I think that has to count for something.  I also managed to continue to work my way through the challenge right up until the very end.  Overall, I would could this as a success, despite the fact that the genetics didn’t work out as I’d hoped.
