And I used to have DNA. Now, I have hybrids to hatch. Thanks again for doing the heavy lifting on tracking these discounts

Glad it has been useful.

I picked up two more this morning as well:

I just hatched my level 30 Gorgosuchus today:

This is what the cool down looks like and confirmation that it does not exceed the level 10 Indoraptor ferocity.

Congratulations @Sionsith. At level 40 it needs more than 3 days to cool down what makes him for me one of the lesser worth hybrids in my collection.

I believed you but it’s good to have confirmation it doesn’t exceed the lv 10 Indo

Ouch at 1d17h cool down! About the same as my level 40 Ostaposaurus. I’ll need 3 or 4 to make my line up worthy of multiple events at the same time. Stockpiling DNA for Thursdays now!!

Oh dang it, should have checked this post before spending a good chunk of my DNA on a couple of hybrids this morning. Should have realized the 20% that comes up tomorrow would work for them too. Oh well, still got 15% off at least and a lot of times I’m still asleep when these come up unless I think to set an alarm for it (something I might just start doing every week to make sure I can use it!)

For once I have an advantage here in Germany. For me the 20% offer happens Thursday’s between 5pm and 7pm. Very suitable timeframe for me.

I’m jealous, that would be a great time for me! Well, maybe it will get me motivated to fix my sleep schedule to something more normal for the time zone I live in.

I’m just really excited that the Clash of Titans unlocked for me today… have just two more rounds to finish it up, so hopefully will score some nice DNA rewards in that pack to use for tomorrow’s discount! Both of the hybrids I bought I need to get 1 more of to reach level 30, would be nice to earn enough to get at least one of them.

Im still 3 off unlocking Titans, I need to get going on that!

I get 4-6pm on the 20% discount. I save all my DNA till then. Then go on a big shopping spree. Its like going to dinosaur TopShop

That was my plan, but when the 15% for hybrids popped up I just thought, oh I guess I have to buy those now then. I just should have taken the time to check first! Oh well, at least I’m still early enough in the game that the amount I wasted was not that much, relatively speaking. Most of my DNA goes to the costs of the incubation lab anyway, especially since I’m getting into these legendary ones that seems to need to be re-started 5, 6, 7 or MORE times in order to get them completed (most obvious Ludia money-grab in the game IMO).

My 4-6am means I have to set an alarm to be up in time for the discount that happens in that time frame which only the Hatchery discount falls into this for me on Tuesday. I have missed it the last two weeks because of the dreaded snooze button. Luckily the DNA discount falls in the 8-10am window for me which is easily doable but now I have a backlog starting from being able to do the purchase but missing the discount for the hatchery speed up.

I would love to be bringing in enough DBs to use hatchery speedups regularly, but just not at that point yet, so I can only buy one of each type of dino I want on the discount each week. So in that respect, buying my hybrids on the 15% may actually work out, as I should have time before tomorrow to at least hatch out one or both of them to be able to purchase another. Will have to see how much DNA I get when I finish the Clash later today. Would love to get my pachy up to level 30 since I have fewer herbivores than anything else in my top tiers but that’s my most expensive one currently.

I did figure out as well that the prize wheel in PvP seems to be determined by the single highest animal you use, so if I use that one legendary 40 that I have now, I get the Elite wheel for the first time. Same in my aquatics, using either of my pair of Tylos is the key to getting the advanced, vs. the intermediate wheel. So am working on getting a few more hatched and leveled up to be able to do more runs every day for the better prizes.

@Ned - Thanks to the moderators for pinning the ferocity topic. Can I suggest this one be pinned as well? It’s the one other post I most often pull up to refer to.

I’m curious when the discounts come up do you buy 1 of each that you need but not hatch till a later time or do you buy and hatch straight away and wait til the next discount window to buy the next?

It depends on if I have a slot open at that particular time, or what I am trying to accomplish. The last couple of weeks I purchased 1 or 2 different tournament hybrids and then various other hybrids (super rare ones). They just went into my market to be hatched later. There have been times where I was trying to evolve a creature to a certain level and so I would shell out some DB to speed up the hatch to get another one, but I only need to do this if I need to purchase three or more on the Thursday discount, since you can put one in the hatchery and purchase a second with no issues. But if you want a third you either need to have another slot open to put the second in the hatchery before purchasing the third or you can speed up the hatch of the initial one purchased.

I think I may have to start using DB on my hatchery I just can’t keep up i’m sat on around 70 dinosaurs and about 17 of them are legendary’s and i don’t even do much pvp (just for the daily) and not done any modded event.

If you are going to do mass speed ups make sure you do it on the Tuesday hatchery speed up discount.

Only 70?? I’m up to 178, almost all of which are super rare, legendary or tournaments. And that’s after playing this game for a little over 2 months… but I do do a lot of PvPs, and the lottery, and am a VIP, so am adding more dinos constantly. Definitely want to get these legendaries done as many of them I can level up to 31+. So yeah I’m definitely thinking of starting to use some of my bucks for speedups, but I’ll have to set an alarm as the discount is well before I normally get up (it’s normal though for me to wake up several times in the night and then go back to bed). I have 18 tournaments to hatch, many of which will earn me badges, but those are SO expensive to speed up. So I generally try to have one of my hatcheries going each week for one of these.
