Shimmer-scale Dragons are a special breed in three color variations (Gold, Silver, Bronze) obtainable through an event occurring during the Christmas Holidays. The first Shimmers were given to the winners of the Christmas Event 2012's Raffle, replacing Tinsel Dragons; ten first-place winners received a Gold Shimmer-scale variation, twenty second-place winners received a Silver Shimmer-scale variation, and thirty third-place winners received a Bronze Shimmer-scale variation. Shimmer-scales were given out as prizes again for the 2013 Holiday Raffle (alongside Tinsel Dragons, in the number of 10 CB Gold Shimmer-scales, 20 CB Silver Shimmer-scales and 30 CB Bronze Shimmer-scales. In the 2014 Holiday Raffle, Shimmers were once again given out along with Tinsel Dragons, where winners received 50 CB Gold Shimmer-scales, 100 CB Silver Shimmer-scales, and 150 CB Bronze Shimmer-scales. As such, there now exist 70 CB Gold, 140 CB Silver and 210 CB Bronze Shimmer-scales. Shortly after Shimmer-scales were handed out, they were considered extremely rare and one of the most valuable breeds on the site. However, with a radical increase in popularity, and thus breeding, they are becoming steadily more common. Currently they are considered between rare and uncommon.

Unlike the previous Prize Dragon, Shimmer-scales have their own official name and description but share the same egg description as Tinsels and Gold Dragons. Since the release of the Shimmer-scales, "Prize Dragons" is the name used to refer to all the breeds released as award.

Like Holiday Dragons this breed was eligible for a Spriter's Alt and Mysfytt was given one with the requested code of (Jewel). This repeats a circumstance in which Marrionetta received a Spriter's Alt Tinsel named (Penk). (Jewel) is a blue-recolored Silver Shimmer-scale; therefore, Jewel's Shimmer eggs are always silver-coloured.

When sorted by "Breed" they are listed as "Prize 2012" on a user's scroll.

Official Dragon Description

Egg

"This egg is very reflective, almost metallic looking."

Hatchling

"Aww... It's a cute baby dragon. It has shiny fish-like scales and loves water."

Mature Hatchling

"Aww... It’s a cute baby dragon. It has shiny fish-like scales and loves water. And look! It has gotten bigger! It must be close to maturing."

Adult

"Shimmer-scale dragons are a very beautiful breed with small—but highly reflective—scales that shimmer and shine as the dragon moves through water. They don’t have fins or webbed feet, but their long, eel-like bodies allow them to swim quite fast. They were once rumored to carry large pearls in their claws—causing many to seek them out in search of this fabulous treasure. In reality, the “pearl” is of greater value to the dragon, for the fabled treasure is actually an egg carried by a migrating female."

Fact

  • (7AP36) was abandoned when still an egg by its original owner, and then picked up from the AP by Amazon_Warrior who named her "Luckiest Catch".
  • (Logic) has broken the most views record set by the Gold Tinsel Gold Epica.
  • (Logic)'s name is changed often, usually as a result of conversations or jokes in the IRC, but the "official name" seems to be Prowl or ProwIer.
  • (BhgzQ) originally had a different code (r7aPe), but was changed upon the request of the owner.
  • (KARIS) died on February, 4th 2013 without a single view, as its owner was unaware of the Prizes' delivery. However, the egg was restored on the 15th of February, still with its original "stolen on" date. 
  • The adult Silver Shimmer-scale's sprite was updated shortly after the first hatchlings grew up.

Rumour

  • (KARIS) may have been the first deceased (and later revived?) CB Prize Dragon.

Spriter's Alt Shimmer-scale Dragon

(Jewel) is the Spriter's Alt Shimmer-scale Dragon and belongs to Mysfytt. According to her, (Jewel) is the original version of the Shimmer-scale Dragon, while the metallic-colored variations are just recolored copies.

Facts

  • (Jewel) didn't have a cracking sequence, according to Mysfytt, the Shimmer-scales' Spriter: the egg just showed the fog sprite and kept getting views until it hatched, at which point the fog turned into the ungendered hatchling.
  • On 31 January 2013 (evening-ish EST), a curious incident happened to her. On that day she was already gendered but died of sickness shortly after. A couple of minutes later she was revived as an ungendered hatchling, gendering again as female the day after. Since the Prizes are protected from sickness, it is unknown why she died and how she revived.
  • Mysfytt stated that (Jewel) will have only two lifetime mates, a Moonstone called "Star Cut Sapphire" and a Lumina called "Inlaid Silver", and will never breed to other kind of dragons. Despite this, (Jewel) was twice bred to a Green Copper called "Tarnished Copperplate", once bred to a Balloon named "Pale Ruby" and also once to a Falconiform Wyvern named "JEwej".
  • (Jewel) produces silver-coloured offspring, just like the Spriter's Alt Tinsel Penk does.

Additional Information

On the news topic Mysfytt stated that:

Jewel will be bred to a moonstone called "Star Cut Sapphire" and a lumina called "Inlaid Silver".

Fact for the wiki: - Jewel is the original - the metallics are all clones.

Yes i made her first as a standard dragon - but still a rare, but then the new prize option came up before I had finished and she looked good as a gold so I did the rest.

Mysfytt


She further explained that:

Jewel is Chinese Lung based and has 4 toes.

Jewel will only be bred to those two males I have chosen - no others.
