Well, then don't breed them? I don't think this needs to ruin the game for you if you don't want it to. Pick sylestis that don't carry the genes. You can easily avoid breeding for a gene if you don't like the gene. It will never randomly appear if neither parents carries it. You could even use a Philter of Nullification from the scale shop on a sylesti to remove the gene if you really like the sylesti otherwise.
The genetics you listed will breed demon wings half the time if you breed it with any other that has a mutation in slot three, if both are visible, if I'm understanding it right. It is less often if one is carried and not visible, I think. So, I would say either get rid of that parent or use the philter on it.

I guess it's not so weird to me. IRL genetics have carried traits too, and I think the breeding on Sylestia is based on that.

None of the parents has it so I don't get how the hatchling can have it.. totally weird imo...

So, both of the parents have been genetically tested?

Like, look at these two, ok?

https://www.sylestia.com/view/pets/?petid=4011669

https://www.sylestia.com/view/pets/?petid=3973640

Neither has a visible mutation in slot two, right? But you see how they've been genetically tested and both carry one? Their offspring has a chance to display that mutation. There are other things that affect gene expression that I don't understand, as far as rarity, but hidden traits can come up if you breed the parents.

That is why I offered to test your sylestis if you haven't tested them. One of your horses definitely carries that mutation. If you test them, you can figure out which one and get rid of it.

Can you link them so I can see? I feel like there is a misunderstanding here. I will look at them and see if they have the icon that indicates they've been tested, ok? If they have been, and this still happened, then I have no idea and I'm clearly wrong :)

Edit: Oh, do you mean the pets I linked? Yes, they have genes. That's why I used them as an example. However, without testing them, the hidden ones would be....hidden. You see how they have the genes, but they aren't visible? But then, if I didn't test them, and bred them, I would get surprisingly results, you see. Because the genes are carried, not visible.


This is a an untested pet

This is a tested pet, like those ryoris I linked

https://www.sylestia.com/view/pets/?petid=4084788

See the icon for it having been genetically tested?

Well, they ARE tested, looks like. Ok, I don't understand breeding in this game I guess. Sorry about that.

Looking a little at their lineage, both parents have it in their ancestors, like, it looks like Rainbow Mane's mother had hidden demon wings, and Wing's great grandmother had visible. But I do not understand why it doesn't show up with genetic testing. There really needs to be a better tutorial/FAQ, as I am kinda inclined to agree this is too complicated.

I'm really sorry this isn't working out for you, Tarnfalk :(

I asked about it on the forums. If I get an answer, would you like to know?

Tarn both have a carried gene in the wing slot, if you want to control a gene both parents have to have double in that slot. That's what the letters represent.
Mom is AB Dad is ND means both have carried in order to be absolute both should have AA, by the way mom carries the trait for the demon wings

Heh that made zero sense to me ;) but as it's only a casual game to me I don't mind giving it up :)

Yeah, I'm confused too. Nothing worse than thinking I get something and realizing I'm actually an idiot. They REALLY need a proper explanation of breeding on that site. What do the letters mean? Is it just random letters, and if they both match, then it's 100%...or....? *sigh*

Anyway, Tarn, remind me of what kind of apparel you're interested in on FR so I can send you a CR of stuff in trade for the Sylestia gold, ok?

Ok, I sent you some things :) Let me know if it works. I'll COD an item to you on Sylestia after you accept the trades on FR. Simpler than doing the pet route
