The Flight Rising Legacy Challenge is a 10 generation breeding challenge.  The goal is to start with an ungened starter dragon and end up with an attractive triple gened dragon.  All of the artwork in this post is copyright of Flight Rising.

There are specific rules and limitations that have been put in place.  For example, the mate for your Founder dragon must be the same Dragon Flight as the Founder.  The heir will always be the first dragon that is produced from a clutch of eggs.  You can’t just pick any dragons (or you will be breaking the rules).  In this blog, I focus on my third generation of dragons.

The dragons of the second generation produce the dragons of the third generation.  My second generation dragons were Quinton and Fluffy.

Quinton is a male Imperial.
Primary: Steel Iridescent
Secondary: Blue Shimmer
Tertiary: Navy Basic

Quinton was purchased from the Auction House to be the mate for Fluffy.

Fluffy is a female Tundra.
Primary: Coal Basic
Secondary: Blue Basic
Tertiary: Blue Basic

Fluffy was the heir (or, firstborn) of the dragons that made up the first generation. She became the Founder of the second generation.  I’ve been marking the Founder of each generation by having them wear the Frigid Emblem on their heads.  It makes them easy to spot (so I won’t accidentally breed them with the wrong dragon or exalt them too soon).

Quinton and Fluffy were paired up and sent to the Nesting Ground to produce babies.  (One of those babies will become the Founder of the third generation).  I like to use the “preview” tool to see what the babies of a pair of dragons could look like before I go ahead and breed them.

Sometimes, the preview makes me change my mind and swap out one dragon for a different one – in order to avoid creating some seriously ugly dragons.  This time, I knew I had to breed these two dragons anyway, for the challenge, so I was mostly doing the “preview” out of curiosity.  Luckily, these two dragon parents were going to produce some nice looking babies.

The goal of the challenge is to end up with a triple gened dragon (that is aesthetically pleasing).  I was hoping that I would end up with a triple gened blue dragon from the babies that Quinton and Fluffy produced.  It appeared to be possible.  I was expecting two, maybe three, eggs.  Instead, they produced five!

That’s the first time I’ve had a pair of dragons produce the maximum amount of eggs!  There is an Achievement associated with this situation, but it doesn’t count until the eggs hatch.  There is potential that a player could forget to click on the eggs every day until they hatch – which could result in “egg loss”.  So, the game waits to see if all five babies make it before it awards the Achievement.  Here is what the five babies looked like after they hatched.

The first one is officially the heir.  She will become the Founder of the third generation of the challenge (after she becomes an adult).  The next two ended up looking like identical twins (but did not actually have identical genes).  None of these babies was triple gened.  I was somewhat surprised that they all turned out to be Tundra dragons.  Five eggs, and none of them held an Imperial dragon.  Together, the hatching of these five babies earned me an Achievement.

Congrats on Quintuplets! – Hatch five eggs in a single nest after breeding two dragons.

The first baby has been given the name Shamika.  She has two blue genes, so she is named after a Blues singer.

Shamika is a female Tundra.
Primary: Obsidian Basic
Secondary: Blue Basic
Tertiary: Blue Basic

She has to grow to adulthood before I can put the Frigid Emblem on her head (to mark her as the Founder of the fourth generation).

Kayden is a male Tundra.
Primary: Lavender Basic
Secondary: Blue Basic
Tertiary: Blue Basic

Kayden got his name from the Name Randomizer. I put him on the Auction House. I can’t keep all the dragons. There are too many, and I’ve reached the point where I am having difficulty feeding them all.

Oolaatra is a female Tundra.
Primary: Lavender Basic
Secondary: Blue Basic
Teritary: Navy Basic

Oolaatra got her name from the Name Randomizer.  I put her on the Auction House with her “identical” brother.

Clio is a female Tundra.
Primary: Splash Basic
Secondary: Blue Basic
Tertiary: Blue Basic

Clio also got her name from the Name Randomizer, shortly before I put her on the Auction House.

Murdoc is a male Tundra.
Primary: Midnight Basic
Secondary: Blue Basic
Tertiary: Blue Basic

Murdoc was, you guessed it, named from the Name Randomizer.  He also was put into the Auction House. I selected a low selling price for all four of the dragons that I am hoping to sell through the Auction House.  Three of the four have double genes (Blue Basic and Blue Basic), so maybe someone will want them.  I’ll have to wait and see what happens.

This time, I was smart and remembered to buy a mate for the heir right away.  Dragons cannot breed while they are still a baby.  It takes five days for a hatchling to reach adulthood.  Once they do that, they have a “cool down” associated with when they will be able to breed.  Different types of dragons have a different waiting period.  It can be annoying to have to wait around for them to match up.  The dragon that will be Shamika’s mate is still a baby, and is not a Tundra, but I think it will work out ok.

Tricky is a male Guardian.
Primary: Navy Basic
Secondary: Blue Basic
Tertiary: Navy Gembond

The rules say that a player can spend up to 30,000 Treasure on the mate for the third generation.  I got this dragon for a low price.

I was hoping to find a mate that had at least one Blue Basic gene.  It had to be a male dragon, and had to have come from the Shadow Flight.  This dragon had one Blue Basic gene, and was “double gened” with Navy.  I didn’t realize until after I purchased him that he had Navy Gembond.  He was also named from the Name Randomizer.

It would be awesome if Shamika and Tricky produced a baby that had the Navy Gembond gene.  I doubt that will happen, though.  In my experience, the only way to produce a baby with a “special” gene is to breed two parent dragons that each have that particular “special” gene.  Shamika doesn’t have any “special” genes, so I’m not getting my hopes up.

The next blog will show what Shamika and Tricky looked like all grown up.  They are the third generation in the challenge.  They will produce a baby that will become the heir, and then the Founder, of the fourth generation.

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
* Second Generation – Gem genes (5 points for each) – Unnamed female has Maize Shimmer – 5 points
* Second Generation – Double colors (3 points each) – Fluffy has Secondary Blue Basic and Teritary Blue Basic – 3 points – Fluffy is the heir, so that means the points double and become – 6 points.
* Third Generation – 5 hatchlings, all Tundra (1 point for each) – 5 points
* Third Generation – 5 egg nest – 1 point
* Third Generation – 4 babies each had double colors, Secondary Blue Basic and Teritary Blue Basic – 3 points each.  Shamika is the heir, so her 3 points double to 6 points.  3+3+3+6 = 15 points

TOTAL: 38 points
