That baby's not half bad, emmie. 

Here's a question for everyone to chew over: What happens after degeneration reaches 3? I mean, if the degeneration number disappears to start over, could you conceivably still be able to tell it's an inbred baby by the stats? Or do you think the Genetic Power/Degeneration number might be expanded in the future?

I'm going to see what happens with that, eventually. It's on my to-do list, just not very far up it.

A few bits of silver is nothing in real life...but it can be the difference between a stable expansion and limiting your breeding goals.

I actually fail to see how those babies have a degenaresence.

Sure it sounds bad, but there doesn't seem to be any negative effect on their stat... I expected to see... I don't know... -5 to all or something (since genetic power 1 give +10 to all)

I might even consider inbreeding myself if it doesn't do more than that...

Still avatar-less? Want something personalised to represent you on-site? I might be able to help you!

Well, the way I see it, it doesn't necessarily have to have a negative effect. It's probably just a way to measure the inbreeding of the baby. How many of us have played on a site where everyone flipped their lids when they saw the pet they bought/bred/bred with had an inbreeding percentage, whether there was a negative effect attached or not? I know I have.

This probably is just a way for people to see how inbred a pet is off the bat, so they have the option and don't have to sift through the pedigrees. It makes sense to have it :)

I bred a cockatrice I bought with one I found in the breeding trades and ending up with Lv2 degen pet without realizing it. I don't mind since her stats are good, but now I know to be more careful.

What's odd about her is that her parents don't have any gene that would affect bite damage, yet hers is in the red. I wonder if a bad gene appeared due to her Lv2 degen.

I accidentally inbred and got this baby Roc:

He has three green stats and one red!

@ lililira: Yeah, I think if you hover your mouse over the question mark, it says any bad recessive genes are automatically made dominant and it's -10 to stats. 

I hope there aren't any random mutations, though, that would suck a bit.

I'm so sad ;A; I noticed my fav pet had degeneration and that made my day goes pretty sad.

Would anyone care to take him one in exchange for a level 20-25 gryphon? I would love if you could change his skin though.

I love you more than the world, from the beginning to the end that'll never come.

I've been experimenting with dipping into inbreeding as a way to refine traits within a few generations - this was my first try:

I'm going to try once more, for due diligence...but jeebus, that poor baby.

I collect and breed cockatrice - See my wanted ad if you're willing to breed or sell your cockatrice!

*cough cough* I'm actually working on an all red stats breeding project.

Here's my best result:


I'm just waiting for her to grow up to breed her to someone else.

I accidentally bred a GP1, Degeneration 1 Unicorn.

If you look at her extended pedigree, you'll see how delightfully inbred she actually is xD. You can really appreciate it if you CTRL+F the page and type in Boneless, Evensong, Dulce, Shoreline, ect. 


After all that inbreeding, I'll probably end up breeding her to a totally unrelated hero when she herself is a hero. XD

in breeding stinks, and i NEVER do it on purpose

If a kid was beating a dog with a bat, 49% would stop and stare, and 50% would walk away. I am the 1% who would grab the bat and beat the kid.

92% of the girls would cry if Justin Bieber fell off a cliff and died. 7% of the girls would scream and jump off the cliff after him. 1% of the girls would have been the ones who pushed him off the cliff. Put this on your signature if you were the 1% that pushed him off.
