TOPIC | Dragon Specific Flight Change Scrolls

Just an idea that's been running around in my head…
So I have these two dragons that I would absolutely love to change the flight of.
I've had them both for a long time and am emotionally connected to them, but their eye colors just don't match the rest of them.
To be able to change their individual flight would be just awesome :)
This could also be really useful for people who want a specific coliseum team!

These 'flight change' scrolls could be sold during elemental holidays in place of the runes that float above the dragon's heads. This could be to ensure the rarity of this occurring so nest rentals don't go out of business

the eye colors are supposed to signify where the dragons were born, its kinda like trying to change your own heritage. I know magic and all but i dont think its necessary.

I'm kind of on the fence with this since there are dragons in my lairs that would look amazing with certain eye colors...but no support.

No support for some of the same reasons stated before me.

First of all, it's the dragon's heritage, something that cannot, and should not be wiped away just because it looks good to do so. For a deeper, more important reason, maybe, but no one has suggested such a reason before.

Second of all, there are nest rental services. I know this does nothing for a dragon that is already in existence, but that's how it is. The best thing to do is find a suitable mate that will give you the desired patterns on their hatchlings, and rent out the appropriate nest to get the eye color you want.

Third of all, it's a breeding game. Why does that matter? Because anything that will make breeding one's dream dragon(s) easier will be met with much scrutiny, since that's the main goal of the game. That's why sex-change scrolls have been shot down so many times. They make breeding easier, too easy. And I feel that just making a scroll to change eye color takes away an element of challenge from the game.

Okay so let me rant for a second here, nothing against you personally. I'm just frustrated. What is this eye color rant week? This is the how many-nth that I've seen? This is the third that I've replied too! RANT OVER! First let me start with my usual: No Support. Second: My reasoning is everything that @Daxillionyx said. Now here is my personal opinion and responses to everything. Your first argument: [quote name="Ryflier" date="2014-08-30 19:04:03"][center] So I have these two dragons that I would absolutely [i]love[/i] to change the flight of. I've had them both for a long time and am emotionally connected to them, but their eye colors just don't match the rest of them. To be able to change their individual flight would be just awesome :) [/center][/quote] My response: I have dragons like this, I've got an Avocado/Coral/Midnight Female Ridgeback with FIRE eyes. She is lovely but would be perfect with Nature or even Arcane eyes. Guess what? I'll live, my life does not revolve around perfect dragons right off the bat. My game does not revolve around having everything handed to me, in fact I HATE when things are easy for no reason. I like knowing that I worked towards something, I feel prouder of the outcome. By giving us some type of item that will make my dragon go from Fire to Nature would feel like a cheap victory. Instead I'll breed her to a Green/Pink/Z dragon in a nature nest and get what I want. I have a friend in Nature, she has use of my nests as I do of hers. Your second argument: [quote name="Ryflier" date="2014-08-30 19:04:03"][center] This could also be really useful for people who want a specific coliseum team! [/center][/quote] My response: GET A NEW DRAGON! It is literally as simple as that to go from using a Plague dragon to n Nature one for Coli grinding. Again, hard work gets results, you're going to be grinding the Coli anyways, use it to train up your new fighter. Now I have no experience with a Coli so my opinion should hold less weight here. TO HEED OF FURTHER ARGUMENTS SEE BELOW! Here is a common argument for why these should happen. Supporter: I want to make W character from X fandom into a dragon but I'm in Y flight and W has Z eyes so I think the site should change to fit what I want because I say so. (Yes this how you all sound, live with it.) My response: I get your point here, I have several characters from Sailor Moon that I wish to dragonize and not all of their eye colors are purple(Shadow as is my flight.), in fact most of them are blue. Here is the whole list ad to the characters, their eye colors and what Flight's Nest I would need to use. Mercury: Blue (Water) Venus: Blue (Water) Moon: Blue (Water) Mars: Purple (Shadow) Jupiter: Green (Nature) Saturn: Purple (Shadow) Uranus: Blue (Water) Neptune: Blue (Water) Pluto: Maroon (Plague) Yes, it would be so much easier to simply have an item and 'poof' my purple eyed Mercury dragon now has blue eyes. Instead I'll try to become friends with several water people and offer them the use of my nests in exchange for use of theirs. This way I gain new friends and I get what I want. Also, why should Flight Rising have to change to fit YOUR fandom's mythology/lore? Flight Rising is NOT your fandom so it should NOT be built to suit X fandom just because it will make it so much easier for you. Supporter Argument #2: It would put a stop to people who steal dragons. My response: It would also put a legit business(Nest Renting) out of business. Granted a lot of people nest rent for free, at least that I've seen, so not much a business but, either way. I have a simple solution... make friends! Be kind to people, a lot of people on this site are good, nice people who will give your dragons back right as soon as the nest hatches. I've seen countless Drama Rising posts where the Nest Owner has begged people to take their dragons back because the original owner isn't replying to them. Not everyone wants your dragons forever! ((I apologize if I come off as demeaning but I'm tired of this topic popping up, especially 3 times(that I've seen) in the previous week alone.))

As much as this would be convenient for me, I still have to say no support for reasons that others mentioned.

Thanks for the opinions guys but I seriously don't understand all the hate…

I would appreciate if someone could clarify the whole 'heritage thing'? Changing a dragons flight wouldn't change who its parents are and I have two different flight dragons make a completely new flight baby all the time. I don't see how this connects at all.

I was giving a suggestion in the SUGGESTION section of this website. I don't think what I said was offense to anyone so please keep the 'ranting' and hate to a minimum.

@saturnssenshi

I had no idea there were other 'rants' going on. I personally didn't see any posts in the suggestion section anywhere about this topic, which is why I made it.

""Guess what? I'll live, my life does not revolve around perfect dragons right off the bat. My game does not revolve around having everything handed to me, in fact I HATE when things are easy for no reason."" -your quote

I didn't ask for perfect dragons I just feel very connected to them and wanted to alter some qualities.
I would really appreciate if you didn't get so worked up and offended over my opinions.
I'm sorry if I insulted you but I just wanted to get my idea out there:)
