ALSO, there is a SALE! Not on gems. But a "Value Pack" bundle of food, realm runes, and a critter. My deal is 20k apples, 25 realm runes and a gargolem. Would love to list what all the packages offered are out of curiosity if eveyone wouldn't mind listing what their deal is or if you got the same.

Very creative TL!! I like this one. Tournaments usually start on Tuesday but there is still hope for a two day flash tournament I guess.

Yeah cute but there's no tourney. I was looking forward to that.

I doubt there will be one until Tuesday at the soonest, more likely a week from Tuesday. They want to make us sweat that we won't get enough pumpkins and buy more before giving us more chances to earn them for free.

Also, I got a "Value Pack" sale. 20k food + 25 realm runes + a gargolem for 9.99. Did everyone get the same sale? I probably won't buy it because it's a total waste for me - I only need another 12 runes for my FINAL expansion so the other 23 would totally go to waste as far as I an tell. If they were to promise new expansions within a week, I'd consider it. Bummed it's a $10 not a $5 package which I'd be more likely to purchase. Did anyone get a $5 package? In CS, when they have these types of bundle sales, different people get different offers and I'm just wondering if that's the case here, too.

ETA: and I'm sure I'm far from the only one wary of buying hte value pack for the likelihood of those realm runes not being credited and besides that being a waste due to no more expansions being available. They should have made it a couple hundred pumpkins instead of realm runes!

Btw, i got the same value pack as zenobia. Not going to buy it.

10-17-14, 11:56 AM
I got that package too. I don't plan on buying it. I'm thinking about breeding rainguins to get pumpkins faster. I will try for few times then start the new frankenwine.

What are all the elements you put in the den? Is it possible it's an aurora pegasus, thunderhawk or daredevil? If those options are impossible, then you have it, and we have a breed time!

Hi Everyone!
Evolve time is 19hrs
Soooo long

YUCK! That's really awful. :(
Thanks for letting us know, though. :)

ETA: It is, in fact, the WORST evolve time yet for a rare. Previously the record was held by the falconch and thunder mammoth at 16 hours. This one is nearly 20% longer than the longest of the obscene rare evolve time yet. I HATE these new evolve times. And hate even MORE that EVERY. SINGLE. NEW. ANIMAL. gets even WORSE than the last. :( :( :(

Woo Hoo!! I got this guy with a L/4 Spruce Moose & a L/7 Aurora!!

Very happy this guy DOESN'T FLY!!

Also very happy about getting a fun new creature as I haven't been having any luck with several of the most recent critters! It's really awful about the time being the same as the Aurora though! Boo to that, TL! Good luck to all who are trying!

Oh, I REALLY hope they don't change it to make it limited at some point in the future. Kinda not cool to not let us know something like that from the get-go if there is a hidden clock ticking. I don't want to stop all other breeding attempts until I get this one, but if I have to do so in order to get it, I want to know that right away!

And lol, Splashy - I'm happy for another ground critter, too! The flying ones really obscure all the other animals in all the habitats behind and behind/to the sides of them.

My advice is stop ur other breeding attempts and try to get this one asp

I remember on dragon story
They would release holiday themed animals
Without no timer , before you know it , it becomes limited with a less than a week time allowed

seekerbears
10-17-14, 11:32 PM
My advice to you guys is to just breed with all the possibilities of dark and plant we have the creature isn't super rare so it shouldn't be as hard to get but I breeded the sky ger and Pandaffodil about 5 times already and all I've gotten is planthers so i guess for me it won't be easy

Bambamstad
10-18-14, 01:52 AM
Was so hopefull yesterday that i was lucky to get the swine immediately. Now complete disaster, get my fourth pegasus....nice for the coins....but i prefer a dark green combo that i am missing.

Next try...planther....

Hawksmoor
10-18-14, 10:34 AM
Just put Skyger and Planther in the den, got the 16 hr timer. Fingers crossed that it's the Swine but I'd be happy with an Aurora Pegasus too ;)

I currently have the Frankenswine nesting, should be ready to go when I wake up tomorrow. I was SO excited when I saw the breeding time, as I thought I had finally got my Aurora. I've been trying for this one for a week now (just finished going for Sea Lion as that is one of the cutest ones yet!), and I gasped when I thought I finally got it. Would have helped me complete the Dazzling Dark quest too... Funny how I can stock up on Sea Drakes (3) but try so hard for 1 Aurora and keep having to wait. Oh well... better luck next breed.

Try the basic one element. I think I got Aurora by using Skyger and Pandaoffi

My apologies. I used Planther and Pandaffodil to breed the Aurora.

And on my second try using that combo, I got the Frankenswine! Woot!

10-19-14, 05:46 PM
Got an aurora Pegasus using Skyger and pandaffodil and another one with spruce moose and aurora Pegasus and two planthers with the the last combo as well. Now I'm off to try the planther and pandaffodil. I wanted that Franken!

Added: the first try with Planther and Pandaffodil was a.... Wait for it... Another Planther. Try two will happen in the morning.

Crr008
10-20-14, 06:48 AM
Got another Planther. Time to switch my pair!

Bambamstad
10-20-14, 09:09 AM
Got the frankenswine this morning, just using the basic combo, skyger and panda.

Now keep on breeding with nature/dark...to get moose and peamoth. Also going to try in between for sea drake and gargolem and the fire/dark super rares.

Crr008
10-20-14, 10:46 AM
Okay, I got sixteen hours when I tried Peamoth X Owl Bear. I'm hoping for the Frakenswine; otherwise ,it will be my forth Aurora Pegasus, three of which will be Franken fails. Not bad fails but I'm ready for this new little guy.

Crr008
10-20-14, 07:07 PM
It was another Aurora! Not sure what to try next. I'll just keep plugging away at it.

The planther has become the bane of my forest's existence (ok slightly melodramatic!).....but dang it's getting to be comical that no matter how many different combos of dark/ nature I stick together....I keep getting that darn 10 hour timer!

zenobia42
10-21-14, 09:15 AM
I think I'm getting this guy! :D

I got 16 hours anyway. Could be a third pegasus but since this guy is rare and peg super rare, odds are it's the swine. lol. Will speed it up before bedtime so he doesn't finish in the middle of the night and my nest/den have dead time.

I was trying for the last 10 breeds for an elephantum or zapra (of which of have noen. of either) and getting 10 koalas in a row so I thought I'd take a break and try this guy. I tried him a couple times before, and last night, so if I get him, it will be on attempt #4. All attempts with panda / skyger.

sanya87
10-21-14, 11:45 AM
I keep trying for this one but all i am getting is a planther with one exception of peamoth which i already had anyway. I will keep on trying untill the end of this event, hope i will get it or even better aurora pegasus... I hope those planthers will take a break at one point!

samanthaxrose
10-21-14, 12:18 PM
20 planthers later..really TL? Haven't even gotten a different animal..ridiculous

zenobia42
10-21-14, 01:31 PM
To everyone getting only planthers, or nearly so, I suggest taking a break and trying for something else for a breeding or two. It may just be superstition but when I am stuck in a rut, and just try something else, I seem to have decent luck at my new goal, then better luck at my long-running, long-failing goal as well.

samanthaxrose
10-21-14, 03:44 PM
I will try that, thank you!

sanya87
10-21-14, 04:57 PM
It looks like they changed the odds for getting those new rares too. I failed every time when trying for hedgehog, sea lion and now this one, and before i didnt have a problem with getting rare animals. I mean at least not so much like now.

my607
10-21-14, 05:08 PM
This doesn't doing too good TL. I have been getting more commons. But then again there are people who get unicorn after unicorn and people with no unicorn at all. Breeding seems hard and it's going to make some people quit.

Crr008
10-21-14, 06:55 PM
Okay I took a break after my last Planther this morning and have bred two others with a different pair, not what I wanted but at least it's a change from that 10 hour timer!

roguebee
10-21-14, 07:47 PM
I got tired of the Planthers, so I took a break and tried blue/dark. Received the Sea Lion. OK, my luck changed! Went back to green/dark and got another Planther. Oh, well...

10-21-14, 09:21 PM
Argh! I got another pegasus not a frankenswine!

Then I tried again and it's 10 hours. Arggggghhhhhhh

It's been so long since I've filled a hole in my album I can't even recall what the last one was! And I've lowered my expectations to shoot for just rares not even super rares and still getting nothing new. I can't believe they've actually slowed down the animal releases per week and I STILL can't make any headway at all. I'm NEVER going to have fewer than 8 missing. I'm back at 9 missing with this one. *bangs head on wall.*

A plethora of planthers and now TWO moose (in addition to the one I already had).

Yeah, that's one weird looking creature alright. And to think the lucky ones have to keep looking at him year-round. With the electrical connection at his jaw, they should have made him an Electric hybrid. After all, that's how Frankenstein was brought to life.

I am right there with you! After a string of planthers interspersed with two spruce moose, I was initially overjoyed to see a 16-hour breed time, and then I sped it up, put it on my nest & for the first time on this game was disappointed with a super-rare. It is only my second Aurora Pegasus & generally I am glad to have another high-earning animal, but with no expansions to spend my money on, even that is rather pointless.

Here's hoping we all get our elusive Frankenswines soon!!! Maybe I should try for another elusive animal to mix up my breeding.... hmm???

I've tried constantly too. Lots of planthers, pea moths, pegasi for me but no moose or swine. Over my two accts, I'm at ~23 tries now. I love Frank & hope he comes to live with me soon.

Ahaha, the positive side of things! Congrats on the eight missing critters! (: I feel the same: in my pursuit of this Frankenswine, I have finally gotten some of the dark/nature hybrids I'd been neglecting to try for for so long, haha. Here's to hoping I can finally get the Aurora Pegasus or Frankenswine in the next couple of days. Or well, at the end of this event!

In the pursuit of frankenswine happiness I have hatched 3 or 4 planthers, my first Peamoth!, first Aurora Pegasus! First Spruce Moose! And now, ill admit I used 5 gems to speed the nest of the spruce moose,(wanted pumpkins) I've got a planther in the nest aaand .....one more 16 hr breed!.......hope hope hope. At least it won't be a planther.

Crr008
10-23-14, 03:32 PM
Good luck, saucysammis. Let us know what you get. I bred pea moth with twilight troll and got a Peamoth. I may skip tonight and breed for something else. Then I'll be back at it again tomorrow.

I cannot get this pig! >.< I've gotten 2 Aurora Pegasi and all the rest have been Planthers, and I've been trying since the first day. I have stopped counting how many times I've tried and how many Planthers I got, but for real? It's either common or super rare, but no rares at all.

Maybe I'll try my Spruce Moose and Peamoth then. I've tried just Pandaffodil and Skyger many times, and I've started using Planther and Peamoth to breed, first time was the Pegasus and third time was also a Pegasus. Blah.

Congrats, BunnieMix. I finally got mine, too. After two more planthers with just Skyger x Pandaffodil (and vice versa), I used Peamoth and Spruce Moose. Thank goodness this sixteen hours was a Frankenswine and not another Aurora Peg! this one was tough but I'm glad to finally have it.

10-27-14, 08:24 AM
And my 16 hours was aurora pegasus, not frankenswine... I think this was the first time i was hoping to get rare animal rather then super rare! But however i am not going to complain too much since i didnt have pegasus. But i will continue to try for frankenswine, i really want it!

10-27-14, 12:14 PM
Congrats on the Peg, Sanya. I wouldn't have minded the Peg except I already had one and got three more trying for the Franken. It is funny how many have gotten the super rares while trying for this rare. That is a nice side effect indeed!

Good luck on getting this little guy.

10-27-14, 12:39 PM
Thank you! It is kind of funny cause it seems people got pegasus more often then frankenswine. Same thing happened to me while trying for hedgehog and grassquatch. In the end i had two grassquatch and still no hedgehog. But however i hope i can get a piggy before its removed, if its going to be removed. We still dont know actually if he is just a halloween animal or he is staying even after the event is finished.

Its been 20 times now that i have failed for this one + one time which gave me aurora pegasus so it wasnt really a fail. But all the other times it was planther after planther and in between i got two times peamoth and spruce moose. Which are also rares so what is the problem with this piggy? I really start to think they set the odds of getting it like it was super rare. It cant be so hard to breed a rare animal, especially when you get other rares from this group without a problem.

Congrats! He's the only dark-nature I'm still missing. But where I used to be missing 8 from my album, I'm now missing 11. So I'm trying for others right now. I am missing TWO electric-darks and let me tell you: once you've had a few 17-hour common fails over and over again, you will MISS those planther fails. A LOT. ;)

sanya87
11-01-14, 01:44 PM
Thank you, he was not easy to get!

Lol i believe you! I have just started to try for bansheep, he is the only electric dark i am missing and koala fails are terrible, so long for a common that is just crazy... But what is even worse is to get 18 hours just to discover its an elephanthom, why did they have to put the same breeding time for both its so annoying! I guess i will try few times and i am sure i will be fed up quickly, much faster then with all those planthers lol :D

But at least i got my frankie so i am missing 6 animals, not so bad considering how hard it has been lately to breed rare animals. Actually i was more lucky with super rares which is kind of crazy!

You're not alone in this boat! 18 Planters, 2 Spruce Mooses, 2 Aurora Pegasi and a Peamoth later, still no luck. It's starting to take a little more control to not spend gems speed-breeding. (I'm a hoarder...) I feel like I must be jinxing myself every time I complain about this, haha. I had the same issue with Volcamel as well! 3 Magmacores, 5 Rampages and an I-lost-count-long-ago number of Armordillos later, I didn't have any luck getting a Volcamel. It's on the bottom of the to-get list now, hahaha.

Don't give up, though! You'll get it eventually. (: Quite a few people have had their success stories; you'll have yours, too! As that saying goes, you'll get it when you least expect it! Plus, the longer the wait, the sweeter the victory! Maybe take a break, try for something else.

Can we get this thread moved back to the main discussion since they decided to change it from a normal animal to a limited one?

This animal suddenly changing from a regular animal to limited... I just gotta say, I don't like being effed with this way. If an animal is limited, it is NOT COOL to PRETEND it's a regular animal for a while, then change it to a limited one. Not cool AT ALL. Suddenly now we have to all wonder what animal is next to become limited?

SANDSCApe
11-07-14, 01:57 PM
No surprise here. I treated it as limited from the very beginning because it was so ... well... Halloweenish.
Anything that seems connected to a holiday or seasonal theme has a good chance of becoming limited. If you don't have Frankenswine yet, try to breed it by next Thursday, November 13, 10am Pacific time.

I already tried and failed at least half a dozen times for this, probably closer to a full dozen, back when is was not limited. So I really don't hold out much hope.

I'm pretty miffed about the fact that Frankenswine is now a limited animal, like the scarecrow was. While I was able to breed out the scarecrow, at least when it came out I (and everyone else) was aware it was a limited animal and that we needed to start breeding for that combo ASAP.

Now, TL just turned it into a limited animal with no real warning or indication that it was not going to be a normal album hybrid. I mean, call me crazy, but when a new animal comes out and it doesn't immediately say 'limited' you think it's an animal that will be a permanent member of the album, right? So, what does that mean for bansheep? Does that ALSO mean it'll be a limited animal in, say, two weeks or so?

Kooky, can you please shed some light on this and let us all know if the bansheep will become limited too at some point (since it's somewhat halloween-y)? I (and everyone else on this thread) will more than likely wish to know if we're gonna be in a breeding panic in a few weeks trying to get another late-notice limited hybrid... :\

11-07-14, 10:47 PM
From earlier chatter and from my limited (ahaha...) experience with Dragon Story, it's probably always the safest to assume that any kind of seasonal/holiday themed animal that gets released will become limited at some point (i.e. at some assumed tail end of the holiday). We'll learn our lessons from this and be prepared for the next upcoming festive creatures.

It would be helpful if we could get some immediate timer/countdown, though. Although, again, from DS and what we saw with the Scarecrow, it's probably safe to assume we have a week (next Thursday?). By the stroke of midnight (PST), it's likely we'll get that pop-up notifying us briefly about how long the Frankenswine will be limited, right?

(In the borrowed words of ArcadiaTofu) LET THE "BREEDING PANIC" BEGIN.

...For several reasons, I've chosen to keep the Haunted Hollow and all unbreedable Halloween animals in storage (until next October?) Hatching the prizes was not conducive with deadline-breeding for the Frankenswine & Scarecrow. I must say that the timing of this event was not the best, and this was only made worse by the limited releases.
...


Frankenswine is limited??


No, only the scarecrow


Ok phew that's what I thought. :)

See? Y'all shoulda listened to this dragon crone.

Thursday, November 13, 10am Pacific time. Don't hold out hope for any midnight deadline. If you restart your game about an hour from now, the first daily timer should pop up.

You would think you get a rare before super rare that's normal. I had a 16 hr breed and got the Pegsus instead of Frankenswine. TL make it easier for us to obtain the frank. I just got a planther from doing the first pair.

I have to TOTALLY agree with you guys and everyone on previous pages who is not happy with this turn of events.

Really, it is NOT COOL of TL to pretend an animal is permanent and THEN change it to limited. I say pretend it's permanent because the only other limited breedable animal we've had is the scare crow. And it said from the start that it was limited. It is therefore reasonable of us, the players, to assume that if an animal is going to be limited, they will tell us from the start, and if it does not say limited from the start, if it is marked exactly the same as a permanent animal, that it is too a permanent animal.

What are we to think now? They pretended the frankenswine was permanent. It suddenly now is not. Not only no longer permanent but without even the decency of a week's warning? I am disgusted with being manipulated this way.

Meh. This stinks. I would have been trying harder for my Frankenswine if id have known they were gonna pull this ****. I guess ill put unicorn breeding on hold and try for Frankenswine now. I just sped a few tries with all my gems and got a Pegasus (my third - sold it), a spruce moose (cool - i needed one), and now a 10 hr fail (Planther to sell)

Bleh.

And i guess i have to wait on trying for the toucan too cuz now i gotta try for Frankenswine.

Bleh.

I might not get this one since I'm getting two planthers in a row. This isn't a smart move from TL it seems like commons and more commons. At least make it easier for us to obtsin the Frankenswine in such short notice.

11-08-14, 10:35 AM
Finally, speed breed and got mostly planthers and I used Pandaoffi and Skyger got 16hrs. But it was Pegsus then did same combo and got the frank. Good luck to everyone trying and don't give up.

11-08-14, 11:26 AM
this is disgustingly short notice. especially since it's a longer breed time. if you don't have gems to speed it up, you're doomed to maybe four or five sixteen-hour fails and that's it, if you catch them immediately upon finishing. and that's only what'd be allowed. any ten hour breed times inbetween, forget it.

this isn't even agitation anymore. 'ha ha, funny comments' aside, i was angry before at this mess. how hard it is to breed, how long it takes, how they pulled a stupid fast one and now every single animal they release is going to have everyone wondering -- because if they did it once, holiday-esque or not, what's stopping them from doing it to everything else? -- but now i'm furious.

absolutely raw fury. they better be having a good ol friggen laugh over there at their desks.

disgusting.

Well, I got 16 hours. I have no reason to believe it is a frankenswine though since I have already gotten 2 duplicate pegasi trying to get this guy. I assume it is another 16 hour fail. Right after they put an extremely short clock on this.

I'm also rooting for you, Zen. I hope you manage to get more luck than I've been getting the past day (Planther and Peamoth fails... yuck). Either way, TL made a REALLY evil move with making this Frankenswine 'magically' limited with 3 days to spare. I was worried when it first came out after Scarecrow was released that it might be limited too, for Halloween and all. However, I was reassured when I looked in the shop and saw NO 'limited' sticker over it at all. I thought, "Hmm... it doesn't have a limited sticker, and it never did as far as I've been able to tell from the forums, so obviously this one is permanent since it's a rare and not a super. No worries, I'll probably breed it out a few weeks down the line as a 'fail'."

But, OH NO.

Despite ALL evidence to the contrary, TL decided to make it a 'sneak' limited animal with ONLY three days left to breed it. Not the week we had for Scarecrow when we were first notified of its limited status, but THREE MEASLY DAYS.

Yeah, I'm pretty **** furious as the countdown gets lower and lower, and I've half a mind to start my OWN petition to get Frankenswine extended to a whole week like you've been trying for expansions, Zen. If anyone wants to start a new petition topic, I'll sign that sucker in a heartbeat, and I doubt anyone else will pass on signing it, too.

For those that are so furious about this, I hope you're NOT planning to do exactly what they hope you'll do and give them real $$$$ just to get this animal that they decided to take away - either by speed breeding or by buying it outright. If you are angry and don't want to see TL do this again, DON'T encourage it. They only do this kind of thing because it makes them tons of money. Take a deep breath, calm down, and ask yourself if you want to let TL win by giving them your hard earned cash for shenanigans like this. Just something to think about.

Excellent point!

Another thought I had: for any of us who do not manage to get this, we will NOT forever have an empty hole in our album we cannot fill. When it is no longer available, it disappears from our albums. So if you think about it in terms of album completeness, there is no reason to even bother at ALL with limited animals.

Im not paying a penny. I have no problem paying for in-app purchases, but not when i feel like i have been shoved into a corner. I pay to have fun in games, and feeling desperate is not fun to me. If needbe i will live without a Frankenswine.

dumbpluff
11-08-14, 04:21 PM
agreed with aernak. plus, the price of these animals is quite a bit. not impossible to get freely, but if you want to buy them straight out, it's expensive.

the frankenswine would be about $15-$20 depending on how many gems you already have. to me and maybe other people, that's important money. groceries or gas money, something like that. that's a whole meal for people who don't have the kind of job that allows it. throwing it for one pixel animal is ridiculous.

I WISH IT WASN'T ONE IN THE MORNING RIGHT NOW. i would scream my HEAD off in real life if i could.

i tested the theory i had about waiting until the egg fully incubates without gems and i got him. there is currently a piggy in my next right now and i could cry.

so maybe it's just superstition, but try to let one of those 16-hour breeds just time out naturally! i bumped all my 16-hours and i always got pegasi. maybe that's a trick, idk. but it worked for me.

(also the combination was skyger and panda, but i had been using spruce moose and peamoth before that. so if you want pegasi, go with the moose/moth)

During the limited Scarecrow I had 14 fails in a row before they took him away. Going into trying for the Frank I was so worried it would be a repeat of last time (blood, tears and sweat) but I only had 3 Panda fails before I got my 16 hour timer this morning. I don't have the Pegasus and he is my favorite so I won't be disappointed at all if I get him. I don't know how you could be disappointed with that beauty! Still hoping its the Frank though because I would like to have 1 out of 2 limited Halloween animals. Good luck to those still trying. At least we learned our lesson. Next holiday anything that seems remotely seasonal we should try for right away.

You know guys, I just paired again owl bear with vinotur and I got another 16 hours. Yesterday again I paired them and got my 2nd frankenswine. I'm pairing these two for the treasure toucan ( I know they say we should use ocean owl but I like to experiment). Anyway bottom line is that if you are trying to breed frankenswine and you have an owl bear, give it a try, breed him with vinotur.

Good luck all !!

It's fine to "experiment" if you've already bred Frankenswine and purchased Toucan. But with a little more than a day and a half left on this creature's timer, I would NOT recommend putting extra elements into the breeding pool and thereby increasing the number of possible fails. And let's say you DO breed Toucan while trying for Frankenswine, that's 24 hours you'll need to wait before you can try for Frankenswine again. Can you spare 24 hours at this stage? Will a Toucan (who earns no coins and gives you no more gems per day than a single neighbor) make up for missing out on this limited creature?
I'm sure EvilBrooklyn wants to put forward a good idea, but for your own sakes, forest friends, I urge you to stick with a Dark-Nature combo here.

I just tried Crystal Unicorn with Aurora Pegasus and got 16 hours -- would they be so cruel and give me another Pegasus? I wish they would make it EASIER to get the limited but alas, it's usually more difficult:-(. There is just over one day left for Frankenswine and I spent 400 on the Toucan already because I don't have the Ocean Owl yet and kept getting Planther with the Owlbear and Vinotaur combo. I'll probably end up speeding up with gems. The "odds" SHOULD be better for a rare than a SUPER rare but this is Team Lava and they want you to spend real money on their "free" games.

I hope you do, too! This is just the sort of thing to spend just a few (like 1-3) of whatever gems you've saved up if you are close to running out of time and your planther still being bred. There is an informative encyclopedia-esque outside website for this game that has a countdown timer on the page for frankenswine you can check (it would be against forum rules for me to provide a link or name any outside websites).

So my Owl Bear and Planther combo made me my Frankenswine! So glad I got him. 1 out of 2 limited Halloween animals isn't too shabby. Good luck to those still trying! Owl Bear seems lucky! I just put him with a Fire Glider and got 17 hours. I hope it's an Eagle Beagle because I still need him.

Just got first Frankie with Owl bear and Vinotaur. First try with this combo! Many fails with others. Bred Bansheep by accident using wrong combo. So, whew! Thanks for the advice!

I'm done with this.

After blowing through 100 gems and getting NOWHERE I'm done with trying for this 'limited' rare. It's clear that TL is messing with the odds quite a lot since I've managed to get TWO pegasi and FIVE Spruce Mooses (another hard-to-get rare) in the few days I've spent breeding exclusively for this hybrid.

There's only so many planthers, peamoths, spruce mooses and pegasi that one can go through before they realize that TL has unfairly rigged a RARE animal that they just all of a sudden realized they were going to make 'limited' when they never once expressed when it was released that it WOULD be limited later on. Had we known from the start it would be limited, like the scarecrow, players would have had TIME to maybe breed one out before the clock ran out.

Instead, they've stacked the odds so high that it's about as 'easy' to breed a Frankenswine as it is to breed a unicorn. I mean, seriously... TWO pegasi but no Frankenswine?! Pegasus is about the hardest dark-nature combo you can breed, but I've managed to get two of them in the past hour of breeding. Before that, I had a herd of Spruce Mooses that kept popping up every now and again after getting an ungodly amount of planthers and peamoths. There's something seriously wrong with the odds when you can get two Super Rares back-to-back but a rare animal is about as easy to spot as a leprechaun. I'm going to exclusively try for the bansheep after ONE more try, because god forbid TL decides it should be a 'limited' animal as well in a few days and decides to hit us with another horrible breeding frenzy in an effort to have people buy more gems.

One thing's for certain, though: Never again will I buy gems off TL for a limited animal or any other animal in the future if they're making the odds so low that it's just not gonna be worth it to try to breed an animal out either way. They hit players with a low-blow by making the Frankenswine a 'limited' animal after a week or so of it being released with no forewarning, and then making it so hard-to-get that breeding out a Super is easier (as well as giving such a short timeframe to breed it out). TL is in the doghouse for me, and I've a feeling they're steadily losing more and more customers' faith/enjoyment from FFS with these tactics :mad:

Why don't you try owl bear with vinotur or with planther? Some of us got lucky with this combo. There's another 6 hours left to breed it.
Crossing my fingers here :-)

Question: as long as it is in the nest it is Ok, right? Or does it have to be hatched by the time the timer runs out?

Once it's in the den ( breeding), should be fine too

It's true what ArcadiaTofu is saying, I also think they really set the odds for frankenswine very very low. If you read this thread a lot of people got pegasus before frankenswine and not to mention how many peamoths and spruce moose which are only rare just as a pig. That can't be normal if they didn't mess with the odds of getting it. Like I already mentioned here, I got mine after 20 tries which included 2 peamoth, 2 spruce moose and one pegasus. And I am not the only one who went through so many fails.

Now it looks like the same thing is happening with the bansheep and I am courious to see through how many elephanthoms, zapras and of course koalas we will have to go. It's not normal that super rares are easier to get then those new rares they introduced recently. It can't be just bad luck when so many players are struggling with it...

Sanya of course they lowered the odds. This is their way of making everyone buy/spend gems

Try an Owl Bear with a Vinotaur or Owl Bear with Planther. I got my Frank with the Owl Bear and Planther and others have also gotten it with the Vinotaur. Good luck. I know it can be aggravating, I tried a lot to get the Scarecrow and never got him. Sometimes luck isn't on our side... I had such good luck with the Pegasus and Frank I decided to buy a scratch off lol. No luck there so maybe my luck was just in game haha.

I got 3 Pegasus and a Spruce Moose before my Frankenswine.

Also my daughter got a Pegasus and a Spruce Moose but no Frankie.

The rare/super rare label is a total crock.

I hope you do, too! This is just the sort of thing to spend just a few (like 1-3) of whatever gems you've saved up if you are close to running out of time and your planther still being bred. There is an informative encyclopedia-esque outside website for this game that has a countdown timer on the page for frankenswine you can check (it would be against forum rules for me to provide a link or name any outside websites). Good luck!


Do do they have countdown clocks for DS too? I cannot count the number of times I've lost out thinking I had more time :-(. I've tried to remember to write it down but sometimes it's so fleeting or I get distracted and miss it

Tried to breed lil frankie but fail :( repeated planthers.......anyway on the bright side accidently chose onyx ox & eagle beagle to breed and ended up with a 23hrs breeding time which is ( fingers crossed) the zapra (such a cutie) woohoo

congratulations :-)

The rare/super rare label is a total crock.

Agree. Or, more precisely, it is a crock in regards to difficulty in breeding. Which they can (and I assume do) tweak from animal to animal with the "same" rarity, and on the same animal over time (the unicorn being actually really easy to breed the first day or two being the best example of that). Rarity is only a valid term in terms of how much income an animal makes.

Anyway, to those who don't get this, I console myself on missing out on the scare crow (despite speed breeding for it the ENTIRE time it was available), with the knowledge that it will NOT be a hole forever in my album. Not getting it only hurt my attempt at album completion by wasting a week of my time. And hey, this mad rush for the suddenly limited Frankie is only half a week wasted for those who don't get it.

Still hoping to hear some last-minute success stories here. Good luck!

Final attempt: Owl Bear/Planther = Fail. Another 10 hr Planther breeding. So in numerous attempts to get the elusive Frankie, I've gotten 3 Pegasi, a Spruce Moose & a gang of Planthers. Good luck to everyone still trying.

Whelp. What luck. I got 5 Planther, Aurora Pegasus (Possibly 2), and Spruce Moose (I didn't have these yet). As well as a chance to get Frankenswine. All for 62 gems (Speed Breed). This is actually a good half week... Best of luck to all who try for Frankenswine within the four hours Frankenswine is available. And every second after that.

I won't get it...one more planther is roasting in the oven. Two actually. I can be happy though; to have my goal be to win all battles, tournaments and events. Those are realistic goals that may require a strategy of a few well placed free gems but don't depend on the luck involved in breeding a limited time item. I'm happy for those who got him, I wanted him too. But these limited time breeds that didn't pan out in the gamble are nothing I can cry over.

Some day, maybe, scarecrow and frankenswine will return in some form and I will try again.

That's a great attitude saucy, good for you. I was lucky enough to get the Frankenswine really early on, like a day or two after it's release. But there are so many other creatures that I haven't been so lucky to get (the unicorn for one, lol). It's really easy to get sucked into these games and think "I've GOTTA have that one!!" forgetting that it's only a game ;-)

Good luck to you!

With probably 1h or less for the animal to be removed, and I hope that my 4th 16h breed is a Frankenswine..

I'm done with Aurora Pegasus okay game? Be nice, just give me a Frankenwsine on this my last try for him and not a Aurora, just be nice game..
