Most of you might know about this, but still for those who don't, there exists a convenient tool to check what would a breeding yield and which breeding pair would be best to get a specific dragon.

The results are quite accurate, and rarely wrong.

I have removed the link. Also, I wouldn't trust the percentages. Yes, the results are correct. But the percentages will be different for every person. Why? Because everyone will have different amounts of luck. Let's say you're breeding for a Vampire. The calculator says there's a 40% chance to get it. But what if you are unlucky and keep landing in the 60% all the time? Like a member who had 56 tries before getting a Pure while another got hers on the first try. And another member who has 200+ failed breedings for a legendary, his success rate would be far less than the percentage given by the calculator.

Furthermore, although the base math is correct, it does not account for failed breeding.  Let's say the calculator gives you a 30% chance, but the failed breeding possibilities all yield 10+ hour breed times.  Another combination may have only a 20% chance, but that combo's failed breeds are all less than 4 hours, with a high probability for 30 second fails.  Using the calculator, you would think the 30% combo is 'better', when in fact, the lesser chance of 20% is in fact the faster, more effecient way to breed.

 

Maybe one of these days I'll compile my math into a java utility or something, but I just calculate on the fly as needed....144 is a mathematical number ya know ;)
