TOPIC | Apparently Unpopular Color Combos

(AKA I’d buy a million of them, but I can’t even find two)

I’m sure many of you know the feeling you get when you scry up an absolutely gorgeous dragon, and you think, “wow, why haven’t I discovered this sooner! There have got to be tons of beautiful dragons like this!”

So you check the AH and come up with nothing. Expand the color range, and maybe find a couple sub-par dergs. You go to search and are still unsuccessful, so now you have to either forget you ever came up with such a heart-stopper, or you have to go through the effort of breeding and/or geneing the dragon.

I swear, I go through this every single time I open up the sCrying Workshop. There are so many color and gene combos that would make me cry, and I just don’t have the time to breed them and bless Flight Rising with such angels. There are over 5.5 million different color combinations alone (if I did my math right), so just think of all those undiscovered color AND gene combos waiting to be fawned over.

For example, one of my G1 dragons is Cornflower/Orange/Silver, and I think she is wonderful. A quick search shows that she is one of three dragons to have ever had that specific color combination, and that’s just wild to me.

What are some rare/nonexistent dragons that you feel should receive more recognition?

I have one non-G1 dragon that I'm really attached to and wouldn't give up for the world, so I've always been on the lookout for more buttercup/maize/grapefruit dragons. but it turns out that there's been?? 5 dragons of that combo EVER and 3 of them have been exalted? pls I'm suffering

I actually really love green ranged colors, & not always the pretty ones. When I set out to make a fan dragon within a green range to match the character, I remember really struggling to find anything on the auction house. My fan dragon of Ma Dai is 1 of 5 & the only other non-exalted one is a 1st generation, which I'll be real. I'm really jealous of that dragon lol!

Just for fun, I checked one of my other green ranged dragons, & she's 1 of 2! The only 1st generation of her to exist so far!

[center]I don't look into rare combos too often, but when I hatched a G1 Auburn/Auburn/Abyss I was shocked that he was only 1/3 at the time ([url=https://www1.flightrising.com/search/dragons?page=1&sort=id_asc&name=&exalted=0&progen=&breed=&bodygene=&winggene=&tertgene=&gender=&body=166&wings=166&tert=96&element=&body_range=&wings_range=&tert_range=&age=&rtb=&gen1=&pattern=&id_length=&level_min=&level_max=&eyetype=&hibernal_cooldown_status=&ancient=&named=&hibernal=&silhouette_unlocked=&sort=id_asc&page=1]1/4[/url] now). I assumed that most matchy XXYs would have a lot of dragons, but nope!

Crying workshop gave me this baby randomly one day.

I wanted one immediately. So I went to go look in dragon search. There has been. [i]One[/i]. Dragon. In the entire history of the site. With these colors. And they're exalted. I'm dying, y'all.

Ah, you mean, literally any of my breeding projects?

Which sometimes do have a ton of existing dragons in their combo but all in inactive lairs.

Haha, that's actually part of why I've never joined the Gen1 scene, even after all this time. So many of my dragons have been major projects, where I have to breed extensively just to get the base colour combo and then gene up from scratch. The idea of waiting around for an egg to someday (if ever) hatch my colours is nightmarish! The dragons I designed for Day of the Dead are two of nine total with their colours (Oilslick/Sunset/Maize), and the only two not exalted.
