Breeding is a lengthy process that involves taking two pets, breeding them together using the magic from the Standing Stones, and then receiving eggs from the Aywas site artists that contain new custom pets designed by mixing the parents.

Breedings can also be completed by hiring/commissioning your own artist and submitting user predictions.

To breed two Aywas, you first need a coin. If you would like to breed two Aywas of the same species, then you would need to get a Lesser Breeding Coin which you can buy in the Cash Shop, or from another user. If you would like to breed two Aywas that are different species, you would need a Breeding Coin, which can be bought in the Cash Shop every 3 months. Aywas breed by magic rather than mating so it doesn't matter what gender the pets are.

Once you have a coin, and you have figured out the two pets you would like to breed, you need to go to the Standing Stones, located under the "world" section of the menu. There you can click on your coin, and then you select the pet in your lair that you would like to breed, and enter the ID number of the second pet you would like to breed with.

Once your breeding has been submitted, just sit back and relax! The babies will arrive within due time.



There are currently 9 different types of breeding coins.
- Lesser Breeding Coins (LBC)
- Hybrid Breeding Coins (BC)
-
Radioactive Breeding Coins (RBC)
- Evil Breeding Coins (EBC)
- Holiday Breeding Coins (HBC)
- Metal Breeding Coins (MBC)
- Half a Lesser Breeding Coin (HLBC)
- Derp Breeding Coin
- Platinum Breeding Coin

Lesser Breedings, Hybrid Breedings, Radioactive Breedings, Evil Breedings, Holiday Breedings, Derp Breedings, and Platinum Breedings are the 6 unique types of breedings and will all be explained later with examples in this tutorial.

Metal, and Half a Lesser coins are related to the other 6 coins, and therefore will not have specific examples shown.

Same Species, Different Lineart
Some species have more than one official lineart - the standard (sometimes called new, if the genus has been overhauled) lineart is available on the All Pet Genuses page, and alternate, event and old lines are found in the Alternate and Event PSDs thread. Coins that only allow same species pairings can include those on differing lineart, however they MUST be submitted with predicts. The only different lineart combination allowed for MBC is old x new. Any combination of old, new or alt works with LBC. Event lines (such as halloween shopkeepers) can only be bred to different lineart with an Evil Breeding Coin, Breeding Coin, or Holiday Breeding Coin.

For more information regarding breedings, offspring, items, and examples, please click the banners below.


User Predictions allow you to submit a number of possible custom babies for your pair, some of which will be chosen as the result of the breeding.

For more information, please refer to this tutorial:
http://www.aywas.com/archives/predicts_rules/


The number of offspring received depends on the coin used, and the species involved. If you use breeding related items such as wedding rings or fertility potions, your number of babies will change. (Please refer to the explanation of those items). The “rare" species group has special exceptions and varies by species, which is why they have their own table.

If you're not sure whether a species is common, uncommon, hybrid, or rare, please refer to the Species Tutorial.

Silver Custom Pets are considered common species.




* Please note: Any Xaoc bred with a different species will only have a 1% chance of producing a Xaoc offspring and any Neura bred with a different species will only have a 2% chance of producing a Neura offspring.




Engagement Ring

With the engagement ring item, you can marry two of your pets. Wedding rings can sometimes be obtained from site events, or will sometimes appear in the BP Shop or Cash Shop.

To marry two pets together, you go to the Proposals page. Once they're married, those two pets can only breed with each other. The only exceptions to this are if your pet wins the drinking game (where it will be randomly paired up and bred to another winner) or if you successfully use an eggnog on your married pet.

Married pets are also guaranteed an extra baby with each breeding.

So for example, Common/Uncommon LBC breedings between married pets will produce 3 babies, Hybrid LBC breedings will have a chance of 2 or 3 babies, Rare LBC breedings will produce 2 babies, and hybrid breedings will have a chance of 2 or 3 babies.

RBC, Evil, and Derp breedings, however, will still produce only one baby even if the parents are married.




Delicious Eggnog

With the Eggnog item, you have a 10% chance of having your pet breed with another pet that has successfully drunk the item. The pairing is completely random and if the item is successful, you will get a notification telling you who your pet breeds with once they have found a match. Each user gets one offspring from the breeding. This item can be used on married pets.




Fertility Potion

With the Fertility potion, you can receive an additional offspring from a same species, common genus LBC, HLBC, or MBC breeding. To use this item go to the Standing Stones page and it will show up as an option to use when you’re submitting a breeding. This item does stack with the wedding ring extra offspring effect. (So if you LBC bred 2 melos that were married to each other and also used this item, you’d get 4 offspring from the breeding.)




Greater Fertility Potion

This breeding upgrade will guarantee you two offspring from a Breeding Coin breeding. Pets that are married will automatically get three.




Lesser Fertility Potion

This breeding upgrade will inform your breeding artist to only create one offspring for your breeding. If using this and submitting predicts: combining this item with a coin that normally yields more than one baby means you can put up to maximum amount of edits on each predict.




Holiday Mistletoe

With the Mistletoe item, you go to the Standing Stones and use it just like any other coin. This items allows the chance to breed two pets of the same species together. It works the same way that a Lesser Breeding Coin does, except there is only a 50% chance it will succeed.




BC Candy & BC Candy Necklace

The BC Candy and the BC Candy Necklace allow the user to create predictions for Breeding Coin Breedings or Holiday Breeding Coin Breedings. Please refer to THIS thread to see how many predictions you need to make. Predictions allow you to create your own babies for the breeding (if they are accepted by staff) instead of the site artists doing so for you. The BC Candy Necklace is equal to 3 BC Candies. If you have a necklace and would like to use it, please send it to Frey (#90) and send her a PM requesting 3 BC Candies in exchange.





Hybrid Embryo

This breeding upgrade will cause your Breeding Coin breeding to result in a random hybrid. Therefore, any two pets bred together along with this upgrade will result in a random hybrid.




Silver Breeding Upgrade

This upgrade will allow two silvers of the same species to LBC breed together regardless of edit difference, provided they still look like they are from the same species.




Artist’s Pallet

This breeding item, compatible with LBC only, will tell your artist to come up with a unique color scheme for the offspring, even if the parents don't have those colors.




Edit Potion

This breeding upgrade will tell your breeding artist to create only one Breeding Coin offspring with a max of 50% edits.




Artist Ticket

This fancy artist ticket will allow you to select which breeding artist you'd like to take on your breeding.



Love Story

Breeding add-on compatible with MBC, LBC, BC, and HBC breedings. This book tells the artist to cute-ify the offspring! MBC and LBC babies are eligible for a Valentine color palette; BC and HBC offspring can have cutesy edits and V-day colors!

Quote Frey (#90): “Love Story is supposed to allow cute coloration for LBC/MBC type breedings. For that, think Valentines' colors (purples, pinks, whites, reds), and for BC think cutesy edits (winking eyes, hearts, ribbons, bows, little candies and flowers... think sweet/adorable/'kawaii'). You can do predicts with them so long as you follow the guidelines. Therefore the artist palette isn't compatible with the Love Story since it'd effectively change what the Love Story guidelines are. Note that Love Story does NOT allow any marking addons -- no addon currently allows any sort of marking additions."



Book of Zombification

This Breeding Upgrade item, when used in a Breeding Coin or Holiday Breeding Coin breeding, tells your breeding artist to ZOMBIFY the resulting offspring! It is a theme-based item. No user predicts.



Mysterious DNA

Breeding add-on compatible with Radioactive Breeding Coins! This mysterious looking potion tells the site artist to involve a third parent in your breeding. The third parent will be a random site-pet, and your baby will be a mix of all three.



Mutagenic Ooze

Breeding add-on compatible with Radioactive Breeding Coins! This potion gives a 100% guarantee of the offspring being a mutant.



Life Seed

A Platinum compatible breeding upgrade that lets you start the seed of your Silver Species right off the bat. Get a second offspring with your breeding. 90% - metal recolor of your first, 10% - with edits and recolor to your first. Not compatible with user predicts.

Quote News Post
"If your breeding hasn't been assigned yet and you want me (Ara.Org (#15)) to inject this item into your breeding, send it to me (Ara.Org (#15)) and post in the Platinum Status thread. Put the full breeding info in your post.

Put the item image in your post too so I don't skip it by accident. If I delete your post, the addon was injected into your breeding."



Silver Breeding Upgrade

This upgrade will allow two silvers of the same species to LBC breed together regardless of edit difference, provided they still look like they are from the same species.





Please refer to this table regarding coin compatibility:



Please refer to this table regarding which Add-Ons can stack and which Add-Ons allow User Predictions:


1. Two babies will be added to the normal number of the breeding.
2. Three babies total will result from using a Greater Fertility Potion with married pets.
3. Only one baby will result regardless of other Add-Ons used.
4. All hybrids will be the same genus.
5. You must PM Mauri (#1010) or Frey (#90) for a randomly chosen Hybrid genus.
--- Compatible, but nothing changes when combining these two options.




Lesser breedings are done between two pets of the same species. They require a Lesser Breeding Coin (also known as a "LBC"). This coin can be found through site events, or can be bought from the Cash Shop for 25 GP.

Here are some examples of Lesser Breeding pairings submitted by users:

-----------------------------------------------









Hybrid breedings are done between two pets of different species, producing a hybrid pet. They require a Breeding Coin (also known as a "BC"). This coin can be found through site events, or can be bought from the Cash Shop for 75 GP at the first week of every new quarter (January, April, July, October).

Only certain combinations of species make hybrids. They will be listed below; all examples are user-submitted breedings. You can breed two species that do not have a hybrid, however the offspring will just be the species that were bred.

Radioactive breedings require a Radioactive Breeding Coin (also known as a "RBC") and have a 50% chance of success. There is an 80% chance that a successful RBC will produce a mutant. There is a 10% chance for each normal baby being chosen. Mutants will always be unbreedable, normal babies will be breedable. They allow the user to try and breed two pets of any species together. This coin can be found through site events, and games. If the breeding is a success, the offspring will often be mutated and unbreedable, however there is also a very small chance of receiving breedable, or normal looking offspring. If your breeding fails, no offspring will be produced. Radioactive breedings will always produce only one baby if successful.

Here are some examples of successful Radioactive Breeding pairings submitted by users:

-----------------------------------------------








Evil breedings require an Evil Breeding Coin (also known as a "EBC") and have a 40% chance of success. They allow the user to try and breed two pets of any species together. This coin can be found through site events, and games. If the breeding fails, your offspring will be grey vynes. When the breeding is successful, it can produce unbreedable evil offspring, breedable evil offspring, or breedable regular offspring. Evil breedings will always produce only one baby if successful.

Here are some examples of successful Evil Breeding pairings submitted by users:

-----------------------------------------------





Holiday breedings will give you two babies from a cross-species breeding. They require a Holiday Breeding Coin (also known as a "HBC"). This coin can be found through site events, such as the winter holiday seasonal shop. It does not make hybrids.

Here are some examples of Holiday Breeding pairings submitted by users:

-----------------------------------------------





Derp breedings require a Derp Breeding Coin. This coin can be found through site events, and was a joke during April Fools of 2011. You can use it for same species breedings, however the babies must be made with filters. All babies from derp breedings will be unbreedable.

Here are some examples of Derp Breeding pairings submitted by users:

-----------------------------------------------







Platinum breedings are done between two pets of any species. They require a Platinum Breeding Coin (also known as a "PBC"). This coin is sold once a year around December/January for 2 weeks in the Cash Shop for 85 GP. Platinum breedings are done by a special team that is not part of the normal breeding team. Babies are created completely from scratch and are treated as silver customs. PBC breedings result in one, single, breedable baby unless a life seed is used.

Here are some examples of Platinum Breeding pairings submitted by users:
