As per recent feedback, we are looking to adjust Breeding Recovery Times for Females in order to make it more convenient for players who routinely breed on cooldown. There are two options that we are considering.

Static Option: The Static Option is to simply reduce the current Recovery Times by a static amount, such as by a few hours. This would allow Players to always breed at the same time every interval instead of slowly falling behind a few minutes every interval.

For example, if you bred a Fabled on a Monday at 4 PM, the Recovery Time for the Female would be the following Monday at, say, 1 PM; giving you a 3 Hour grace period.

While this option gives Players a more consistent experience and an experience much more close to what it has been for ~8 years, this does still require players to stick to a certain window - albeit much larger than how it currently is.


Midnight Option: The Midnight Option is to simply maintain the same Recovery Times, however, all Recovery Times would default to the time of midnight.

For example, if you bred a Fabled on a Monday at 4 PM. The Recovery Time for the Female would be the following Monday at 12 AM.

The only potential drawback to this option is for those who breed right around midnight on a given day - their pets' Recovery Times would vary by an entire day if they began a batch prior to midnight and did not finish until after midnight.


If you have any specific feedback on this poll, please post below. However, to vote, just simply visit the link at the top (or navigate to Social -> Community Polls) and cast your vote! Thank you.

Ooh this would be a very nice change. Due to them all having cooldowns going on i usually push breeding till the next day or the day after. I am generally never breeding around midnight so that one wouldnt bother me. Having them all reset at once would be fab so voting accordingly ^-^

I love this idea. I used to have 3 round of breeding that I would do, but then I realized that I was breeding later and later, and then I'd have to take a one day break and it'd mess everything up. Now I have 4 rounds of breeding so I don't have the later breeding time problem, but it's way less convenient in regards to pets growing up and moving into the stales and such. So I love this.

But anyway, I had a question before I vote.
I've always gotten confused about midnight stuff 'cause I can't tell if it's the day before or after or whatever.
So if I breed a fabled on Monday at 4pm, will I be able to breed it again the next Monday in the morning or whenever? Or is it saying that I'll be able to breed it once Tuesday starts (at like 12:01 or whatever)?

Easiest way to remember is that a new day always begins at 12:00:00 AM. The last second of a day is 11:59:59 PM. If it were written in 24-Hour format, 12:00:00 AM is the same as 00:00:00 in 24-Hour format. And 11:59:59 PM is the same as 23:59:59 in 24-Hour format.

So 12 AM is the immediate first second of that day.

Thank you for addressing this situation!

I'm very familiar with the midnight option but not really the static one (does it always end 3 hours prior?) since on Flight Rising the cooldown ends during midnight. The downside there is that some dragons take a month to cooldown

It would just be a static reduction in the cooldown timers. Three hours was given as an example. So instead of 7 Days being the cooldown timer, it'd be 6 Days and 21 Hours - or whatever the final decided time reduction would be.

Fleeing a bit from the subject but I think that with a smaller cooldown time there should be some thought on a system to release pets more efficiently and maybe with some incentives, like Flight Rising's exalt system

EDIT: I DIDN'T NOTICE THE THREAD WAS OLD, it's been some tim since I last logged in, sorry
