Exhibitions

The Association of Pet Breeders invites all Beastkeepers to participate in weekly themed exhibitions. Enter your best pets in these All-Europa competitions and win trophies and rare pets!

The theme of this week's exhibition is "Striped Addiction". All pets with visible stripes in appearence may take part. You will find complete exhibition rules on the exhibition page. The exhibition will run until next Sunday 0:00 (server time).

Participate in Exhibition


Deviant colors

New rare colors are available through breeding for Unicorns. A baby born as homozygous (carrying two copies of the same gene) for color or pattern has a 1/10 chance to develop a deviant color when maturing. This mutation is phenotypic and not inherited by the offsprings of an affected pet, although you can test the genotype of your baby from the first days of life to know if it carries the mutant factor. A gene that produces a deviant phenotype will be marked with 
The color name of such pet will get the star to mark the deviation.

There's no natural way to obtain a baby with both color and pattern affected by mutation. The Council of Mages in cooperation with Association of Breeders are developing a serum that will allow both attributes to express at once.

The gallery for deviant colors is coming soon.

These updates are pretty cool :D

 

I can't wait to see how they go. I hope the mutation for other species come soon but not too soon. Let's enjoy the race for the first mutations ^^

 

Thanks for the awesome update guys :3

Unstable internet connection for Christmas. Please pardon my delayed responses.

Deviant colors sounds fantastic. Sooo all those white dominant unicons will come in handy for breeding now... Aww yiss

 

Just to clarify... we get to keep our pets at the end... yes?

Nightingale, yes, this is correct. The winners will be determined next Sunday night. There's a one week exhibition registration period to give the Beastlords enough time to prepare (or maybe even breed) their best pets. Exhibitions don't lock pets and you can use your pets as always even when they are applied to exhibition.

Could you please explain what do you mean by "go down" and what points exactly? Did you change any pets in your roster?

Well, the white tigers were 2022, and now it's 1999 or something like that, as well as my silver striped cockatrices went from 4000 to 3000 something something.

The rarity of color is calculated basing on the amount of pets with this color in game. The drop of value of a rare color means that other player have bred more pets with this color, and the rarity ratio for this certain color has changed.

Does that means that color gene percentage in the list of genes was accurate when it was written and is not updated?

List of genes describes how often pets with a certain gene are caught in the wild. Color rariry on exhibitions takes into account how much pets with a certain color exist among all pets in the game at the current moment. These values are related only indirectly. There are many other factors that affect color rarity except the rarity of genes that make this color.

Angel, what does an asterick next to the color mean exactly? Does it mean there is a chance that it will have one of the new mutations or does it mean it DOES have a new mutation?
