  • Question about the dreaded egg

    Hi, I have 2 questions about the dreaded egg:

    1. Some owners may discover that the appearance of their shadow couriers is just the most basic courier with black color (maybe with a little difference).
    And someone says that, if you want your shadow courier with horns/teeths/hairs/tail/ears...etc., (so called 7 slots?)
    you must insert 3red+3blue+3yellow first, and then insert the shadow essence.
    Finally, you may get the shadow courier with all the available features.

    If this is true (I am not sure about what he says, hope someone can prove it), another question arises.
    What will happen if I insert 3red+3blue+3yellow after the shadow essence is inserted?
    i.e., Can I improve my dreaded egg?

    2. What will happen if I insert a normal (e.g., quas) essence to the dreaded egg?
    When I try to do this, the system prompts "Are you sure you want to infuse the egg with this essence? This action can not be undone!"
    I want to make sure that even if the dreaded egg can not be improved, the dreaded egg will not become a normal egg after I insert the normal essence.

    I tried adding a regular essence to a dreaded egg, it gives the warning you get, but if you proceed it tells you it can't be done because the egg has been corrupted or something along those lines. So no a Dreaded Egg can't get any more essences other than unusuals.

    Also it does not matter if you had essences in it before you add the shadow essence, I added shadow essence to an empty egg, and my dreaded Greevil has all the unique teeth and tail etc. that it should have, it looks nothing like the regular one, it has some weird feathery/spikey looking things all over its body and the teeth look pretty nice.

      Thanks for your answering.
      I just tried inserting the normal essence, the message is just what you said, lol.

      Hope next time, the rule can be clarified when the event (if there is a christmas event) begins.

        Yep I agree we need some proper info really, thanks to not knowing enough I didn't put 2 wex in my Wicked egg, so it turned out to get no tail and really tiny teeth But oh well
