Ultra-rare Gem-Fire hybrid.



Finally evolved my Ruby Razorback to level 10, now for the others!!! Pictures below!!!

I have to admit that for a crystal hybrid, I am a little disappointed.
I just started breeding yet another koala, so am not going to try for this one atm.

Anyone tried yet? Is it a five hour fail? :-/

Or maybe a 1hr/5gem fail like Pandaffodil? ....

This will be another animal that I will be missing from album. Since I don't have the crystal that's unfair.

1 hour fail, 5 gems to speed. I think it is a 45 hour breeding time

Can't breed for it until tomorrow because my Garden is tied up with the spawning of my first Zapra. There never seems to be any rejoicing that isn't accompanied by groaning.

I haven't tried to get an emerald in weeks - not since the trick-or-treat event began, because the event penalized those trying for the emerald with 1-hour panda fails but 30-second incubations... meaning you could spend an entire day breeding and not earn a single pumpkin for it. But now once my current breeding is done, I may try simultaneously for this and the emerald. The mostly 3-hour fails are not much different from 1-hour ones. Neither is anything like the original 20-second panda emerald fails only a select few were privy to. I also for some reason really like the idea that if I breed a unicorn and a fairy ferret and get 45 hours that I won't know what I've got until it hits the nest. :)

Thanks! I have to admit that I'm glad it's a one-hour fail, vs a 5 hour fail.
Just going to wait for another tournament, then I'll breed it. ;-)

Congrats Drachenia on being the first to breed one! :-)))

Congratulations. I don't think I would have been tenacious enough to speed through those five 1-hour Ponies at 5 gems per hour. Because it could easily be 20, 50 or 100 Ponies. LOL.
Well, I guess it'no different from speeding through Rainguins, which most of us might be willing to do. But I need to save my gems for the Grand Gem Grove.
Anyway, GREAT JOB, Razorback Godparent!

SANDSCApe
11-04-14, 01:00 PM
Bah. Forget the Grand Gem Grove. If I breed this baby, I'm speeding it straight through. I'll sell a Thunderhawk and put a baby Emerald out on the grassy hill just to give that hot piggy a quick home.

Sylvrthrne
11-04-14, 01:08 PM
Woo hoo! ok, sped through about 18 ponies, but I have all the world event animals and arboar sitting in storage, so this gives me a chance to hatch them out without disrupting breeding ;)

Congrats, Dachenia. Can't wait to see the egg and all of its forms. I haven't had a chance to try for the emerald very many times but I guess this is a good a time as any to try for either this or the emerald. There are so many animals I don't have yet. I need a week and a half reprieve on new animals just to have time to breed for the missing ones.

I used Crystal Unicorn and Jackalope and got 45 hours! Woo Hoo! so excited and hopeful it the RubyRazorback and not the Emerald Dragon because I like the looks of the pig better :-) I don't even know how many times I've tried to get the Emerald Dragon using Pandaffodil and recently I tried with the Aurora Pegasus because I saw someone had the Unicorn with the OwlBear on their nest and I thought it was clever as the dark with plant could be thought of as three elements.

Yes, you guys next! I can't wait for the day I visit y'all's parks and see prancing crystal ponies. Soon, I feel sure! In fact, I'd be willing to bet at least one of the three of you guys not only gets a unicorn but gets a gem hybrid before I do!

(This kind of betting is a way to try to trick luck into giving you guys unicorns lol. I bet Anyuszko would get a new super rare after a month-long dry spell before I'd get my first unicorn and it worked - she got a new super before I got a unicorn. ;) )

Hawksmoor
11-04-14, 04:39 PM
Awww thanks zen, I need all the help I can get! However I was really fortunate during the Trick or Treat event, I added 3 or 4 supers to my herd including the Scarecrow so I was very lucky!
And sending some return luck your way for this piggie!

readysetgo888
11-04-14, 04:41 PM
I'm definitely going to try for this guy! Not as cute as the emerald dragon but 1 hr fail vs 5 hr fail is enough difference for me. Plus it seems at least to me that they tend to give out more of the animal just after its release - so I would recommend trying for it right away.

What notice? The new-animal pop-up announcement? NOBODY got one yet. We won't usually see one until about 12 hours after the initial release of the animal. It was released at noon Pacific. Pop-up announcements come after midnight.
You don't need the notice to breed for it. Look in your shop for it. If it's not there, restart your game.

Unicorn + Steamtrunk gives you Ruby Razorback for sure!!!

After I figured out i spent 45Euros for gems for speedbreeding. Therefore my forest is "piggyland" ((1400:90) Ruby Razorbacks) now.

They are not that beautyful but at least the future gold/food income shouldnt be a problem anymore.

I doubt they're going to lower the odds for this one. They probably already learned from the emerald dragon and did it right from the start. But I guess it's not too bad to hope, right?

Not breeding unicorn.....breeding ruby razorback....steamtrunk and unicorn are the pair I used to breed with. At least I hope it's a razorback. I guess it could be another unicorn...oh boy! Time will tell. Yak on nest, so won't know until tomorrow.

it took me a VERY long time to get my Unicorn, just keep breeding four different elements and you WILL eventually get it. "Fairness" is not the issue, it's a GAME. Life isn't fair and you'd better get used to it or you will have a miserable life

zenobia42
11-04-14, 06:13 PM
lol - my steamtrunk went into the evolution flower JUST before people started posting it is a good bet with the unicorn. I'd have to pay 7 gems to speed my nest and another 17 to speed the steamtrunk to try now. Though it was still a baby until I put it in, so I would have had to put him in the flower anyway.

In 20 minutes it will cost 6+16. Maybe I will try. Though it's a 23-hour guy going in the nest.

I had to use around 70-80 gems to clear my nest, put Steamtrunk on and speed hatch him, speed Bansheep out of my evolution flower, put Steamtrunk in and speed him out, and then speed clear my breeder so I could put Crystal Unicorn and Steamtrunk on it. But I decided it was worth it to breed Ruby before TL changes the rules.

I did the same thing, spent about 70 gems to take advantage of the guaranteed ruby. Definitely feel it was worth it too

Holy CRAAAAP - it WORKED! Unicorn + steamtrunk = 45 hours! I honestly don't believe my eyes! I mean, yeah, gem + fire + another element would always have a chance of working. But honestly I expected to be the first to try but get a skyger. You guys all ROCK for sharing the "secret formula." Most definitely worth the gems to speed flower + nest + another 2 to pop the two in the den out. But 24 gems is practically nothing. Woo-hoo!

Congrats....it had to work, the only other choice was to pop out another steamtrunk, and as we don't have any other water fire critters I didn't think that was gonna happen. But we still don't know for sure if razorback or unicorn...but I'm betting on razorback! Happy for you and all others who got 45 hr breed.
I know that I personally would not have all the animals I have if not for all of you guys posting on this forum. Heck...I probably wouldn't of gotten steamtrunk had Zen and others not made all those wonderful charts and graphs. So keep posting everyone.

Duh! I didn't even think about a skyger...but you only need two elements (water and fire) and assumed when you added crystal that it would be three elements. Right? Oh I'm confusing myself. Thought I had this breeding thing down..ok...I'll just say luck was with us all. Lol

It's 100%

Skyger has the same type of breeding rules as the Purple type in DS. To get it you must have Fire on one side and Water on the other. With this combo you don't have that and since there are no other water/fire types this is the only possible outcome.

YEEES!~ Got my third one on the nest. I KNEW there was a reason I wanted to save up my gems for a rainy day :D Had to speed up my Hippogryph lvl 15 evolve and then speed up my Steamtrunk hatching, speed up my Steamtrunk evolve, then breed it with unicorn and speed breed them into and out of the nest and viola ~ Now I have 3 Ruby Razorbacks for certain, no matter how they fix this 'error' :D It beats missing out on the Emerald Dragon chances I missed way back when. Now I have a total of 4 ultras (1 unicorn and 3 razorbacks).

Life is good :)

Edit: This 100% works. I have had NO fails on the Steamtrunk x Unicorn breeding on three occasions. NONE. Get it while TL hasn't fixed it yet if you've got a Steamtrunk and a Unicorn, people! I guesstimate they'll have it fixed by early morning, but that's just my take on TL rushing to close this amazing loophole.

Thanks, EviBrooklyn :D I'm quite stoked about it not because I like the design of it but because it'll bring in a TON of coins every day for me. Even if I think the choice of using a pig as gem 'royalty' is totally whacked, it'll bring in a lot of coins for my forest and that's all that matters when the expansions keep getting pricier and pricier :D I think three is more than enough for now. If I had three unicorns and emeralds, too... now that would be awesome, but I already missed those loopholes :(

I feel like only those who did NOT get the 20-second panda fail emeralds should be allowed to get this one lol. :p :p :p

But seriously, I think this is a very nice bonus they are giving those of us who persevered and won the steamtrunk. Man - we were all such stress-cases in that steamtrunk thread lol - myself most definitely included! They had to know this breeding would be this way - they themselves had to set the odds, so I really truly sincerely hope it STAYS this way until those who do not have a unicorn yet, but put in the great effort (and in most cases a lot of gems) to get the steamtrunk, get their unicorns too. They deserve this nice treat from TL at least as much as those of us who already have a unicorn and can make these porkers now.

ETA: It's a nice treat for us, but it is ALSO good for TL's bottom line - just look how many gems we are all spending to speed breed these suckers! lol!

Thanks, EviBrooklyn :D I'm quite stoked about it not because I like the design of it but because it'll bring in a TON of coins every day for me. Even if I think the choice of using a pig as gem 'royalty' is totally whacked, it'll bring in a lot of coins for my forest and that's all that matters when the expansions keep getting pricier and pricier :D I think three is more than enough for now. If I had three unicorns and emeralds, too... now that would be awesome, but I already missed those loopholes :(

I agree with everything you said. The only reason I bred a third was for income on future expansions and not for his looks. But I would love to have another unicorn. I'm still in love with her majesty !!

11-04-14, 08:14 PM
I'm stopping at 2 of these, unless they are still the same odds in 48 hours. I'm out of gems lol. PLUS, I don't have any room for another gem habitat, nor the gold to upgrade my current one. So one will go in the small gem habitat with my unicorn, and the other in the haunted hollow.

ArcadiaTofu
11-04-14, 08:21 PM

I've no doubt. I'm with Zenobia on the odds of TL doing this for users to use/buy more gems. It just seems like on every 'ultra' there's been a loophole. First the unicorn loophole, then the Emerald Dragon loophole, and now this one. I can't think that TL is so sloppy they'd miss loopholes for ALL ultras but never for any other commons, rares or supers. Doesn't that just seem way too odd for words?

So, yeah, wouldn't be surprised if they made this loophole on purpose and will close it up a day or so later after 'discovering' the so-called loophole after a small handful of people have taken advantage of it and other users that were too slow/late to the party are jealous and feel cheated. Kinda reminds me of the Emerald Dragon debacle...

So, yeah, it'll probably be closed up soon. You can count on it.

(Btw, I'm also suspicious that only Steamtrunk gives such good odds. And it's also a tournament animal that went on sale for more than 1,000 gems a few days back. Coincidence? Methinks not.)

I agree. Three is more than enough for now. I could blow all my gems and get a few more or buy more gems to have a porky forest, but I'd rather just get three and have enough space/coins to have supers and rares that I really like, along with three razorback earners that help pump out more coins.

An ugly ultra IS better because in the end, coinage matters more --- at least for those that want to have a lot of food/coins being produced daily... like I do :D

Lol, in two years all of us will more than likely have 20 ultras each and I somehow doubt they'll take two years to give us new expansions XD Probably another month or two at the most for a new expansion, I expect. And by that point, I'll have MORE than enough from my razorbacks and unicorn. And perhaps an emerald or two if I start to try to breed that tough sucker out...

This is about players buying gems. There is no exploit just the illusion of one. Either way these opportunities do not come along often, so take advantage. I sold off several super rares dupes and about 4 habitats.

I've only noticed this "loophole" right now D: I didn't even have time to hatch and evolve my steam trunk yet and by the time I finally get it grown up to be able to breed, TL probably would've fixed it by then. Woe is me. But I guess that's what I get for being impatient and breeding unicorn + pony right off the bat.

I'm tempted but I'm definitely not gonna. My remaining 197 gems might be needed this week or later down the line for something I REALLY want, so three ugly razorbacks pumping out lots of coins for me will be sufficient. Plus, I'm gonna be trying for some emeralds soon and I'll need space for that in my gem coves :D

I am with you there. When I started playing I thought the phoenix should've been a little more bedazzled and a red/crystal hybrid. Ruby Phoenix makes so much more sense to me than Ruby the Pig... or whatever. ;-)

I honestly can't believe I've gotten to take advantage of a 'glitch!'. I can't for the life of me understand why steampunk & crystal doesn't give what water & fire normally results in. Why it would default to crystal/fire is beyond me, but YAY!

I have 6 grand farms and plenty of room, all I grow is nexus nuts. I have open spaces for future animals and now have 9 small gem habitats. Just have to make some decisions, for me it was easy. I would rather sell grasssquatch, Griffins, magmacores, and other super duplicates and delete their excess habitats. I condensed down and bought gem groves and filled them with piggies. I will take their income to a lower teir super any day of the week. I do not care if they look like a bag of buttholes if they make ultra income. I still have duplicates of the higher supers. No need to go crazy, but plenty of room if you plan correctly. I am missing 2 critters from the album and have room for them, when they hatch.

Holy CRAAAAP - it WORKED! Unicorn + steamtrunk = 45 hours! I honestly don't believe my eyes! I mean, yeah, gem + fire + another element would always have a chance of working. But honestly I expected to be the first to try but get a skyger. You guys all ROCK for sharing the "secret formula." Most definitely worth the gems to speed flower + nest + another 2 to pop the two in the den out. But 24 gems is practically nothing. Woo-hoo!

Thanks. Tried Pyro Pony with unicorn lots but no luck. Then read these posts. Used Unicorn and steam trunk......and whamo.....got the 45 hrs! Thanks everyone for the posts.

Someone mentioned that in order to get skyger ( which is an element) you need fire in one side and water on the other. This is the reason why you won't get a skyger.

I'm just curious. How do you know it's not just another Crystal Unicorn your breeding?? If your first fails were pyro ponies why can't one be a crystal unicorn? Are we sure it's a 45hr. ?? Just asking. I'm on my first 1 hr fail but have a 8 hr in the nest.

Never mind. I read through more threads that answered that! I just went through 120 gems trying to get it and nothing but pyro ponies!!! 24 times! :( I don't have a steamtrunk!!

So glad I was reading this thread. Had tried 3 with the lvl 15 pyro pony & lvl 11 unicorn and got the fail. Read about the steam trunk, so thought why not, as I agree, there always seems a higher chance of getting an animal when it first comes out, at least it has worked that way for me. So spent 45 gems getting my bansheep out of the evolution flower, speed hatching the steam trunk & evolving steam trunk to lvl 4. Wasn't game to spend more getting him higher so tried it. Sure got a 45 hr egg that's like the one in the picture. Sped him thru for another 45, got another one. Stopping now, so absolutely happy with 2. Got 90 hrs to rearrange etc.

Now I'm a proud owner of 4 Ruby razorback!!! Below are the pictures of my first Ruby Razorback and others! Two of them are being bred and hatching!!!

This won't work for me because my Steamtrunk is not on my list of animals at the breeding den, although he is sitting happily at level 10 in the habitat where I sold a super Rare to find a place to fit him.

Any idea why mine is MIA? I did the normal clear off and restart and although it is in my Album, it is not on my breeding list. Every other animal I own is on that list but this one.

I thought I was not being singled out to be run off from playing this game, but now I wonder. Seems everyone but me has the possibility to try to breed their Steamtrunk. If I do get it back it will no doubt be after the backdoor has been closed and locked.

Yeah, I guess this is TL's preliminary way of preventing us from using this loophole for Miss Piggie... er the Razorback.

I have one in the nest and one breeding right now. I was thinking of buying gems and speeding them to make a third, trying to decide whether or not to do that, when I thought, "let me check the forum to see if that is still an option." Glad I did.

Yes TL is fixing this glitch, so for those who have yet to try this breeding combo will miss out!!! Very sad cause this would help those having issues breeding emerald dragon! When we see that we can breed with steamtrunk, there will be other outcomes like Pyro pony, frostfang and skyger!!!

For me my first Ruby Razorback was bred with crystal unicorn and Pyro pony, the other 3 were with this glitch!!! Good luck to all those who have yet to get either crystal unicorn, emerald dragon and Ruby Razorback!!! And see I see a future of getting a sapphire gem creature as a water gem hybrid!!! Can't wait for more gem creatures to be released!!!

Yeah, now it's definitely blocked! This morning when I saw this I rushed to hatch my steamtrunk, put him in evolution flower and then in the breeding garden with unicorn. I used around 30 gems but it was worth it cause I got my 45 hours :) so this afternoon I was thinking and thinking and finally decided to buy some gems even though I said I will not do it but couldn't resist on this! And I wanted to try for another one, but had some problems with payment. That was finally solved this evening, got my gems, use them again to speed up the breeding. As soon as I got my egg in the nest I tried to breed again and surprise, no more steamtrunk on my breeding list. Now I see I am not the only one. But I will shut my mouth now since I got one at least.

Yep, they must've lowered the odds as well. I should've checked here before I sped up with gems :-( I couldn't see my Steamtrunk in the breeding options so I came here to check. I used the Jackalope with the Crystal which is what I used the first time to get the RubyRazor and got a 7 hour breed this time.

Water-fire is a really great hybrid to have when battling dark-fire or nature-fire opponents in the arena / battlegrounds.

And one day they might make it breedable again... just not with 100% ruby odds when paired with a unicorn.

I just checked the breeding wiki and am very happy and grateful for my 7 hour breed time because I don't have the Vinotaur yet

I agree too that the Water Fire is awesome for battle and I tried to breed it when I first saw it in my shop before I knew it was for a tournament prize and not breedable which is a shame. I hope they come up with more Water Fire hybrids down the road

Well that is a bit of a disappointment if we can't use it....as far as I know all the other critters from the battlegrounds and tournaments are breedable.....I guess if you had the gems this was the time to use them....

Will have to wait on this one the same as the emerald dragon by going the old fashioned route of luck based breeding...which is fun I guess!

Ahh, my estimation that they'd close the backdoor by early morning was off a bit---seems it took them around 2-ish today to make their 'fix' work for everyone.

I'm sorry for everyone that missed this amazing loophole, though with how TL seems to make every new ultra have SOME type of loophole, the odds are good the next ultra we see will have another backdoor.

I'm just grateful this forum is so up-to-date and on top of things, otherwise myself and many, many others would have never known about this exploit or taken advantage of it. Well done, everyone and thank you! :D

I was debating this morning if I should speed and breed one more. Luckily I did breed my 5th. I don't like them at all (look wise), but I figured I rather sell my low earning duplicate rares and supers and have more of ruby gem.

:( Darn it! When the Steam Trunk tourney was going on, I decided that I didnt really like the look of it, so I didn't spend any gems to win it (I wasn't having very good luck with those last few battles). Boy, am I regretting that decision now! Oh, well. I would've missed the loophole anyway because I just saw the posts now. I'll have to make sure that I try harder for tournament animals in the future even if I don't care for them, and I will be checking this forum more often so I don't miss anything! Congrats to all who were able to get Ruby Razorback so quickly! I guess I'll go back to my Crystal Unicorn/Pyro Pony combo and sit through all of the 1-hour fails. *sigh*

Hi everyone! Steamtrunk wasn't intended to able to use in the Breeding Garden, so the game team removed it as an option to use. Sorry for the inconvenience! Best of luck breeding the new Ruby Razorback! :)

I hope you guys change your mind and allow us to breed for him and with him :-) Maybe as a Christmas prezzie? I think he's cute :-) I tried to breed him before I found out he was a tournament prize

My only advice on breeding an emerald is a lot of patience during the 100 fails of panda and unicorn. I know others have bred it with unicorn and the troll or with other animal combos. I can't sit through 10 hours or more of failed attemps. But I can deal with one hour fails. I got mine probably after 100 tries, so at least a week of trying, but I managed it.

Thanks for advice... Been trying with pandas...fails..fails and more fails.... But like you cannot sit through long hour fails, so I haven't tried many other nature animals...so back to pandas.
Good luck to all trying for razorback.. From reading first post on this thread, looks like most achieved ruby with a pyro pony.

Remember my earlier complaints that this looked more like a regular hog and not a boar because it had no tusks?

Well, it actually does have tusks; it just wasn't as obvious to me while the mouth was open. LOL. But the tusks seem more prominent now, with a longer, narrower snout more befitting a boar. The artwork was updated to create a leaner, meaner beast.

11-08-14, 06:43 PM
I've got to say, I loved the look of this beastie from the moment I saw him in the battlegrounds (after I got over the shock of having to fight a gem-fire hybrid I'd never seen before)! Wild boars are scary/awesome and I'm excited to see a creature that's not what I think of as a "charismatic mammal". Big cats and flying horses are great, but give me some variety. After three straight days of breeding Pyro and Unicorn, I still haven't gotten him, so I'll have to console myself with my even-more-awesome-looking Arboar.

(Also, I'm kicking myself because I kept checking this thread after the Ruby Razorback came out, but didn't actually read through to the revelation about breeding with Steam Trunk. I could have taken advantage of that if only I'd read the WHOLE thread. I've learned my lesson!)

I was also able to breed a Vinotaur so that I can try for the Treasure Toucan. Fingers crossed that my luck continues when my Vinotaur is able to breed because I really want that Toucan!

SANDSCApe
11-09-14, 04:45 AM
What some are referring to as "back-door" methods (as though it were some dirty trick) are simply opportunities that present themselves under NORMAL BREEDING RULES. Any player who understands the rules and is vigilant can spot them immediately. Some of us see these potential opportunities before the animal is even introduced.

When TeamLava determines that an opportunity is being abused, they then must alter the breeding rules, creating aberrations and neutered creatures. In many cases though, the opportunity closes naturally with the introduction of potential fails. Electric-Natures presented alternate outcomes to the Emerald-Leopard combo, just as breedable Water-Fires would eventually have done the same for the Unicorn-Steamtrunk combo.

Even if they were't ready to roll out Water-Fires, they could have quickly introduced a Pure-Fire 15-hour Rare, hastily drawn in freakin' crayon if they wanted to, with no animation, no parenting codes, no battling codes, no income, no feeding, no evolution, no nothing, calling it Crazy Crayola Crayfish or something.

I think your screencap is of the level 10-14 and the one from the battlegrounds is the epic form. I don't think it changed. The form looks the same to me, and the extra colors a typical epic for them. I think I caught a couple screencaps of the tourney piggie that I didn't post, choosing the "action shots" instead. I will find my resting shots tourney ss's and post them so we can compare apples to apples.

But compare this battleground pic of the epic Razorback with your earlier ones. There the ruby crystals around the torso stuck out more and were more spiky. They made the pig look more porky and the head was somewhat rounder, like a farm hog.
Now the rubies are shorter and blunter so the Razorback looks more serious, less flashy and definitely slimmer.

Or do the crystals stick up and get pointy while the face gets shorter, rounder and fatter when it's attacking? Was this pic taken at the same time as that one?

I don't have access to that round of battles since shortly after taking the batch of screenshots. I have a couple more but they are not much different.

If you watch Japanese animes you will find out more, friends.
I just can't compare the dragons in DS and the creatures in FFS, especially the epic forms. At first I thought this ruby piggie looks a bit stupid and I was disappointed. But when I saw the epic form, I was like wow! This animal sure is awesome! And then when I look at the baby form again I thought it was really really cute.
But these thoughts really aren't the things that I'm supposed to care about, since I don't even have a Crystal Unicorn...
Good luck to all of the players who are still trying to breed a Crystal Unicorn or a Ruby Razorback.

lol - it will mean that for one of those animals the ruby is ideal for, I can't blame myself for not evolving my ruby. If it doesn't work, at least I threw the best animal possible at it.

The total cost for leveling an epic animal from level 1-15 is 138,325 food. :eek:
The lion's share of that is the 110,000 to get from 10 to 15. 1-10 is nothing in comparison.
