Brought to you by Nature

Old dragons are Flight Rising's legacy! Don't exalt old dragons!
Ever came across those words in a dragon's bio? I have. They're so very right. Once you exalt an old dragon, you erase their history and life from the face of Sornieth. They're gone... They had made it this far, only to end up on a pretty pedestal, forgotten and withdrawn forever.

If you value old dragons too, check their age when exalting fodder! If you come across dragons who are 3 years old or more, send them our way! You can directly send the CR (to any foster home lair), and we'll trade you your old dragons for fresh adult fodder. We will take them in, and care for them until they can find a new home and loving lair to welcome them.

Add yourself to the pinglist linked at the top of posts to be notified every time new dragons are added! You can add conditions too!
Do NOT use the pinglist outside of the Old Oaks Forum!

We have a list of new resources available to help people!!



unknown.png


With all the new updates and moderator team, we've developed a frequently asked question list to help you navigate the rescue!



How much should I list dragons for if I'm selling oldies through the Old Oaks rescue?
unknown.png If you have old dragons you found while leveling fodder, or are trying to make room in your lair, please send them to a Foster Home, who will provide a fodder dragon in exchange (one oldie = one fodder). It enables you to get rid of a dragon immediately when you need to.
unknown.pngIf you are selling within the Old Oaks forum and server, the most basic guideline is 10g/kt per year (ex. A 4 year old dragon would go for 40g/kt). You can ask for an equivalent in fodder. (ex. 5 year old can be exchanged for 5 fodder dragons)
Please feel free to ask questions about pricing when rehoming dragons by pinging either of the Moderators.

Buying dragons to flip (resell for more expensive prices) is forbidden and NOT within the spirit of Old Oaks. If you are buying dragons within Old Oaks, do not buy with the intention of flipping. Doing so will get you banned from Old Oaks server and forum.




What makes a dragon valuable and how does that affect pricing?
unknown.png Valuable dragons are oldies that have special eye colors (ex. earth), art or lore attached in their bio, are gen 1's, have levels or coliseum stones (especially eliminate stones), or have 7 or less digits in their ID number. We caution rescuers about putting these dragons up on the auction house as they are likely to get bought and flipped.
unknown.png Please do not buy "valuable" dragons to relist them on the auction house at a higher price. The whole point of this thread is to find them loving homes, not to provide a list of cheap market assets for you to invest in. If people do that, we'll be forced to pull them off AH and change our system, which will make our lives incredibly harder in the future.


If I have a valuable dragon I wish to rehome, how much should I add to their total price?
Due to the fluctuating LAH prices for old dragons and because old dragons have recently started to gain extra value on the market, we recommend reading through ODCA's guide for buying and selling dragons as a place to start when considering pricing!
Here is a starter list we've developed for valuable dragons we see frequently here at Old Oaks.
  • Special eye dragons (ex. earth, multigaze, primal, glowing) : + 10 kt / g for every additional special (ex. +20g for a earth dragon with primal eyes)
  • Level 7 or more : + ~15 kt / g to 30 kt / g (level bonus for exaltation basically)
  • Have coliseum stones : + 200 kt / g
  • Two letter names : LAH
  • 7 digits or less : LAH
  • Gen 1's : Depends on the Gen 1!
  • Art and or lore : Depends on the amount of art and or lore!
    Do research into the original artist or writer to help price :)
  • Lineage : Depends on the lineage!
  • Trading: : One oldie dragon for one fodder dragon. If dragon leveled beyond 7, then an additional fodder dragon at the discretion of the foster home/buyer.

Why are Earth oldies so expensive/valuable? Why shouldn't you list Earth oldies at Old Oaks pricing on the Auction House?
unknown.png Earth has been the smallest flight for basically all of Flight Rising's history as a site, for a number of reasons; this means that there are fewer Earth dragons than basically any other flight, which then means there are accordingly fewer Earth oldies than any other element. As of last check (10/17/21), there have been ~2,600,000 Earth element dragons on Flight Rising, ~530,000 of which are unexalted/active. The next smallest flights, Fire and Water, have 4,000,000 total (~880,000 active) and ~4,700,000 total (~960,000 active) respectively. If you list them on the Auction House for the standard Old Oaks pricing, it is very likely that they will be bought and flipped for a much higher price.


What happens if I fall out of love with a dragon I rescued through Old Oaks or another similar oldies rescue thread?
unknown.png If you change your mind later about a dragon you bought, or want to exalt them, sell them for fodder, or leave the game, please return them first! The price will be refunded in exchange for the dragon you initially bought. If they aged while you were keeping them, you'll get more money too!


Someone bought and exalted one of my oldies – why?
unknown.png Unfortunately, we can't save every one. There are a number of reasons people exalt oldies – maybe they bought them for a project, only to find a better candidate or for them to be too closely related; maybe they want a certain dragon's colors to be more rare among active dragons; maybe they were exalting at a loss for a dom battle; or maybe they just changed their mind after buying and they don't want to deal with the hassle of reselling them.
All we can say is, you did your best to find them a new, appreciative home and you shouldn't feel bad if some do wind up exalted.


What's the story behind Old Oaks?
unknown.png You can find the story on Galopa's dragon Roen!

Nobody bought him for a while, even after the other one sold, and I just... really didn't want to exalt him. I couldn't tell you why at the time, but something about him really spoke to me, and when WvE started, I took him off the AH because I just didn't want anyone exalting him, and I decided to keep him. I didn't know what I'd do with him back then, but I would keep him. Then, I realized he basically had the perfect qualities to become a Nexus Agent in my Nexus City tab, and just like that, he received his role, and became a spoiled boy who got some pretty gem apparel shades to complete the "look".[columns][/quote] [quote=Scarecrows][columns]When I think of our beautiful little community and how important its message and cause is, I think of Thrasos. I adopted his mate, Aletheia, first and quickly noticed her long offspring list. Going through her list my heart softened to see that, not only had she been mated to the same dragon for 4 years, but also that their offspring had their own special personalities and outfits put together by their respective owners. It got me thinking, really thinking, about the legacy that old dragons leave, and how it was so easy for pairs to be separated, how easily that legacy can end. They were no exception, having been separated at some point. But seeing that Thrasos was still around in a fellow OO member's tab gave me the courage to hesitantly ask about, and adopt, him. I will never forget the kindness and giving nature of this community, that has let me reunite the two. The fact that there are others on this site who appreciate keeping old dragon families together, that they're willing to entertain a stranger's request touched me deeply, and it's become something I strive to continue doing as a foster home myself. While we all have our own reasons for rescuing and rehoming, one thing we all have in common is making sure old dragons can move on to a home that's ready and waiting for them. Because there is one![nextcol][color=transparent]----[/color][nextcol][color=transparent]---- ---- -[/color][size=5][color=#567D34][b]Thrasos[/b][/color][/size] [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=35831003][img]https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/966835687875813396/978417053847416922/35831003_350.png[/img][/url][/columns][/quote] [quote=zophronia][columns][color=transparent]---- ---- ---[/color][size=5][color=#D951FF][b]Seabird[/b][/color][/size] [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=4496789][img]https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/966835687875813396/978419632690049125/4496789_350.png[/img][/url][nextcol][color=transparent]----[/color][nextcol]this is Seabird, she is probably my favorite dragon that I have purchased through old oaks. She was clearly very well loved in the past, as she's almost 8 years old, was level 25, and had been breed changed to a gaoler and fully gened, but one of my favorite things about her is that, for some reason, she has two eliminates. She is, of course, one of the stars of my coliseum team because of this. She is absolutely the rarest/most valuable dragon in my clan, and I would never have been able to afford her without the generosity of the Old Oaks member that sold her to me. I ended up breed changing her to an aberration and geneing her, and i'm on the preorder list for the perfect skin for her. i treasure her dearly and her colors remind me of a tropical fruit, maybe a papaya- I collect dragons that look like fruit, so she's perfect for my lair. She's always spreading gossip, but everyone's far too afraid of her to say anything about it. She's a bit of a diva, and wants to be front and center whenever possible, so I thought I'd submit this testimonial on her behalf. ;)[columns][/quote] [quote=meep1505][columns]She was the first dragon I got off the Old Oaks thread after my discovery of oldies. I remember seeing her and just being amazed at how pretty she was, especially how well her genes and colors worked together so well. She reminded me of a calm watery landscape. I originally was considering renaming her to something water related, but when I looked up her name out of curiosity, turns out it means "forest, strength" or "mountain of strength", and I thought it also fit her so well. Though she has no lore written, to me she is like a pillar of strength and of gently heart, caring for those around her and for younger dragons to seek out for comfort and advice. Funny enough, I later on ended up finding an older distant family member of hers right on Old Oaks as well (they even look similar), and who I adopted just so they could be together.[nextcol][color=transparent]----[/color][nextcol][color=transparent]---- ---- ----[/color][size=5][color=#3BA0A1][b]Ahren[/b][/color][/size] [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=27932590][img]https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/966835687875813396/978420759036846130/27932590_350.png[/img][/url][/columns][/quote] [quote=elysifish][columns][color=transparent]---- ---- [/color][size=5][color=#FA912B][b]SkippingStone[/b][/color][/size] [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=29953694][img]https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/966835687875813396/978423138557780009/29953694_350.png[/img][/url][nextcol][color=transparent]----[/color][nextcol]From the moment I first read her name, I knew SkippingStone was coming home with me. They came with a little bit of lore and an outfit design, which helped me finish them right up to fit in my clan. I have to be honest, lore dragons are my weakness, and this bogsneak has since become one of my favorite dragons and one of the most prominent members of my little community, especially with their... quirky personality. I got her art to match with their sister (in-lore), and I plan to possibly get more for her in the future.[columns][/quote] [quote=likely6][url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=9807522][img]https://i.gyazo.com/8dc95a80087626375102c8ae85dc85da.png[/img][/url] [color=#F8F3D4]----[/color][size=6][font=Calibri][color=#E97546]Jormag[/color][/font][/size] [color=#F8F3D4][size=1]----[/size][/color] I think he's really cool!

Well, she must've heard that or something, because she absolutely knocked it out of the park on the first try! Seeing what good lil' derg she is, I decided that I don't have the heart to just sell her back like some breeding fodder, so she stays with me after all! Yay :D I gave her a new name (she is now called Kundegunde, as that's the most granny name I could think of), clothes, lore, and a gene plan (the two last ones are in her bio is someone wants to take a look~).

Read about our old dragons who found new loving homes and want to share their stories!

If you bought an old dragon and gave them a home, feel free to comment or send it one of the moderators!! Keep it under 20 lines so this message doesn't explode too soon!
Please include the dragon's ID or link so I can post a small picture of them along with your message!
Thank you so much for letting us know how your dragon is doing!

---- ---- TigerStone

---- So like, I sniped up TigerStone back in 2021, when I noticed his age, and at first, I didn't really mean to keep him, so I threw him on the Old Oaks thread alongside another dragon of a similar age to see if anyone wanted him. Nobody bought him for a while, even after the other one sold, and I just... really didn't want to exalt him. I couldn't tell you why at the time, but something about him really spoke to me, and when WvE started, I took him off the AH because I just didn't want anyone exalting him, and I decided to keep him. I didn't know what I'd do with him back then, but I would keep him. Then, I realized he basically had the perfect qualities to become a Nexus Agent in my Nexus City tab, and just like that, he received his role, and became a spoiled boy who got some pretty gem apparel shades to complete the "look".

When I think of our beautiful little community and how important its message and cause is, I think of Thrasos. I adopted his mate, Aletheia, first and quickly noticed her long offspring list. Going through her list my heart softened to see that, not only had she been mated to the same dragon for 4 years, but also that their offspring had their own special personalities and outfits put together by their respective owners. It got me thinking, really thinking, about the legacy that old dragons leave, and how it was so easy for pairs to be separated, how easily that legacy can end. They were no exception, having been separated at some point. But seeing that Thrasos was still around in a fellow OO member's tab gave me the courage to hesitantly ask about, and adopt, him. I will never forget the kindness and giving nature of this community, that has let me reunite the two. The fact that there are others on this site who appreciate keeping old dragon families together, that they're willing to entertain a stranger's request touched me deeply, and it's become something I strive to continue doing as a foster home myself. While we all have our own reasons for rescuing and rehoming, one thing we all have in common is making sure old dragons can move on to a home that's ready and waiting for them. Because there is one! ---- ---- ---- -Thrasos

---- ---- ---Seabird

4496789_350.png
---- this is Seabird, she is probably my favorite dragon that I have purchased through old oaks. She was clearly very well loved in the past, as she's almost 8 years old, was level 25, and had been breed changed to a gaoler and fully gened, but one of my favorite things about her is that, for some reason, she has two eliminates. She is, of course, one of the stars of my coliseum team because of this. She is absolutely the rarest/most valuable dragon in my clan, and I would never have been able to afford her without the generosity of the Old Oaks member that sold her to me. I ended up breed changing her to an aberration and geneing her, and i'm on the preorder list for the perfect skin for her.
i treasure her dearly and her colors remind me of a tropical fruit, maybe a papaya- I collect dragons that look like fruit, so she's perfect for my lair. She's always spreading gossip, but everyone's far too afraid of her to say anything about it. She's a bit of a diva, and wants to be front and center whenever possible, so I thought I'd submit this testimonial on her behalf. ;)

She was the first dragon I got off the Old Oaks thread after my discovery of oldies. I remember seeing her and just being amazed at how pretty she was, especially how well her genes and colors worked together so well. She reminded me of a calm watery landscape. I originally was considering renaming her to something water related, but when I looked up her name out of curiosity, turns out it means "forest, strength" or "mountain of strength", and I thought it also fit her so well. Though she has no lore written, to me she is like a pillar of strength and of gently heart, caring for those around her and for younger dragons to seek out for comfort and advice. Funny enough, I later on ended up finding an older distant family member of hers right on Old Oaks as well (they even look similar), and who I adopted just so they could be together. ---- ---- ---- ----Ahren

---- From the moment I first read her name, I knew SkippingStone was coming home with me. They came with a little bit of lore and an outfit design, which helped me finish them right up to fit in my clan. I have to be honest, lore dragons are my weakness, and this bogsneak has since become one of my favorite dragons and one of the most prominent members of my little community, especially with their... quirky personality. I got her art to match with their sister (in-lore), and I plan to possibly get more for her in the future.

I think he's really cool! He fits in perfectly with the dragons in The Hollow (it's a sort of sub-clan for my main clan.) He's already friends! Pollen has a lot in common with Jormag, so I know those 2 will get along swimmingly [Ridgeback Happy] It's almost too bad Pollen already has a mate, her and Jormag could be quite perfect for each other otherwise.
His lore made him a perfect addition to my lair, and gives me a reason to have more dragons with gembond (I'm certainly not going to be changing his lore, only adding to it! Can't get rid of that gembond!)

So I only needed her for my breeding project, right? Well, she must've heard that or something, because she absolutely knocked it out of the park on the first try! Seeing what good lil' derg she is, I decided that I don't have the heart to just sell her back like some breeding fodder, so she stays with me after all! Yay :D I gave her a new name (she is now called Kundegunde, as that's the most granny name I could think of), clothes, lore, and a gene plan (the two last ones are in her bio is someone wants to take a look~). She's now zipping around Sornieth in search of adventure while giving her poor young escort constant migraines by getting herself in trouble all the time XD She might also be someone important, but nobody really knows...
