Garnet could be a pain. Not Crystal fail type pain but a pain none the less. Compared to the last few Gemstones the fails are long, all 8 hr plus. Especially bad with Solar thrown in the mix.

GRR!!!
Tried quicksilver/ghost = 18 hr scoria
Also firefly/snow = 8 hr, then 39 hr fail
Read lichen/copper netted 2 for someone on wiki, so just bred that and guess what?? No, not a LY but ANOTHER darn rainbow, so nice have both caves tied up with Rainbow fails...I'm popping these out like there's no tomorrow...LOL, was a different story when I actually needed rainbows
Edit update...they were both moons not rainbows

@Foxy, yeah, I did also try LY/Rainbow, got rainbow there too, thrn read the odds were very low with this combo so changed tactic.
Big congrats on your Garnet, yay!
Also thanks for your gift combo (gift/reindeer has just netted my second gift cooking)

Once LY is removed, I thought I wouldn't be able to successfully breed a second LY (trying with my current LY/Rainbow)??? I did try these two many times after the first LY finished and always got rainbows only?
Thought it only worked if the egg was still in the market OR you already had two of the same dragon, can anyone confirm this pls

Thanks for letting me know that LY/Rainbow can actually still work to net me a second LY once LY has ended, well I for one am pleased the limiteds have been extended, there are still posters on wiki still trying to get a LY also.

Well it's kind of nice to get 2 Fireworks dragons I didn't have but honestly I'd rather not have a 48 hr failure in the mix.

Got lost on my way to GameFAQs...

Happy 2013 everyone

Congrats Foxy on the Platinum, and everyone else still trying for the limiteds. C'mon good luck for GP!!! Show us the Leap Year. I was alternating trying Firefly/Seaweed for Leap Year and got one with this combo and another with Crystal and Lichen as an Emerald egg fail. Good luck, I only bred one when it was first avail so made my Leap Year Island to celebrate having only one last Feb.

I am not on Facebook but read somewhere the Bring Em Back limiteds may be extended a few more days into 2013 as thanks for a good 2012. It has brought Dragonvale back up in the top Grossing apps from mid 20's to top 3 over the holidays. Can anyone confirm the Facebook extension news? They were supposed to go away on Jan 2nd but they are still avail - great for those still trying. Not so much for others trying for Apocalypse and still getting long fails.

Hi Texas Ted and a very happy new year to you to!!

I've just had a quick look at DV Facebook page and it still says that they MIGHT extend the date for a few more days. They are after as many 'likes' as possible first!

They do have that posted for you to share and I guess if they get enough they will extend. I thought it was though the 9th anyway. Happy New Year everyone.

I got my second LY, same as @TTed, as an Emerald fail (Crystal/Lichen) - but I wouldn't recommend playing with Crystals unless you need an Emerald too. You know how that goes.

Ok I just ran it (LY/Rainbow) thru the Sandbox simulator and it came up with one or two LY almost every time. And 3 once. I know it's possible after it goes away too, because my daughter bred several to expand her $$ herd - (I was sooo jealous, cuz I had none). However, as we all know, the fails are brutal if you don't want Rainbows.

As long as continues to bring them in big bucks I would guess they would extend it. I don't blame them, I would do the same thing. The annoying thing is that they will claim it is some sort of "Thank You" or favor to us when in reality it is just BFS realizing that when the limiteds go away revenue will drop back down as well. They are all the way back to #3 in Top Grossing. They're not going to just pull the plug on that.

I agree but I only need the new gem dragon. I give them money every time we get a new dragon I do not have. I need another island I would pay for that. I think we all need another island. I play hay day there is always something to do there. I wish DV would give us more not interested in the gold shrines there nasty looking. Good luck everyone on getting all the dragons.
