Apparently Storm8 heard my grumblings of quitting if I don't get this common dragon - second try with Neo Rainbow and Hammerhead yielded the desired result...much better turn out than last Tales where it took me 8 straight days of breeding exclusively for the common.
As a note for those without the more rare types - Neo Rainbow is pure rainbow type and Hammerhead is pure water type so no different than breeding Rainbow and Water.
i'm just stuck. over nad over. nothing. at least if i don't hatch it, i don't have to complete tales which means i get to save food

This is one of the few Tales event that I chose not to do any speed breeding for the ultra-rare-common and had several long fails from the get-go.
You can see the many failures lined up next to the Gleeful Dragon egg I got from breeding blue+purple and blue+rainbow. Today, doing the “Breed with a Mist Dragon” task,” I actually managed to breed the Gleeful Dragon. Looks like I won’t be taking a break.
I give up, I hate tales can never get the ultra rare common
First attempt: Rainbow + Water = 4hrs
Forgot to post, but can't believe got it on the first try. Previous Tales I literally bred all the way up to the final hours and STILL couldn't get it. Breeding results in this game are so ridiculously stupid.
