Breeding Your Tokota

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 17, 2014, 9:07 PM


Breeding Your Tokota | Breeding and Genotypes Guide | Genetics and Mutations | Breeding Request Rules



One of the major aspects of the game is breeding your Tokotas, while it may seem a bit complex at first glance, it is actually very simple. Before you begin, if you're new to genetics or want to breed something specific, take a look at this handy guide!

First Step


Locate a breeding pair. If you wish to avoid inbreeding penalties, be careful that they are not immediately related (not related within visible lineage). A tool that you can use to help check for inbreeding is the Lineage Checker. Just copy and paste the two lineages into the appropriate boxes and hit 'check'! These tokotas can be two tokotas of your own, two belonging to others that you have permission to breed, or one of each. You may only breed when both parents have the Arms of Akna badge posted on their award walls. If you are sharing a litter, please work out all deals with the other owner. Make sure there is a mutual understanding of who receives first pick, etc.

Second Step


Make sure approval has been posted on the appropriate thread by TokoTime by the owner of the tokota if one or more of the parents does not belong to you. Then, fill out the form in Breeding Requests and wait for genotypes to be given in reply. If the litter is shared, you must reply listing who the pups will belong to.



More Information



Arms of Akna


Before you can breed your tokota, it must pass what are known as the Rites of Fertility and be awarded an Arms of Akna Award. The rites of fertility are a series of trials that will test your tokota, in order to determine whether they are fit to breed or not.

Fertility Supplements, Roots and Close Care


For an increased chance to have more puppies in a litter, you can apply fertility items to your breeding. Fertility Supplements and Close Care can be purchased at the Trading Post, while Fertility Roots can be found while exploring. You can apply/purchase these directly on your breeding request.

More information on litter sizes and how these items can affect your breeding can be found at the bottom of this journal.

Inbreeding and Hereditary Defects


One of the most important things you must check to see before picking a sire or dam to breed with your tokota is to check and see if they're related. Inbreeding is allowed within tokotas, but breeding siblings, cousins, or any relative within visible lineage may have health and genetic consequences, including stillbirths and infertility. Tokotas who are inbred are also at risk of passing these genetic defects onto their offspring, until the similar names are bred off of the lineage.

Inbred tokotas will receive an automatic novice score on their AoAs.

Defect Penalties


  • Spinal Deformities: Tokotas with spinal deformities cannot be ridden. These tokotas will also receive -5% to success in any exploration, caving or diving activity. These tokotas may still be used as light pack animals, pull light sleds and pull a skier!
  • Blindness: Tokotas with blindness will receive a -5% to success in hunting and fishing activities.
  • Deafness: Tokotas with deafness will receive a -5% score to herding related activities.


Hereditary Trait Benefits


Some tokotas have Hereditary Traits that have a certain chance of being passed onto their offspring, depending on their rarity. These provide a wide range of advantages, including some that might affect the outcome of your breeding! If both parents in a breeding share the same hereditary trait, the chance to pass that trait does not increase compared to if only one parent has the trait. Breeding effects provided by certain traits also do not stack in breedings.

Physical Traits may also be passed on but have no advantages other than being cosmetic. If both parents in a breeding share the same physical trait, the chance to pass the trait does increase compared to if only one parent has the physical trait.

Hierarchy Status and Inheritance


(See Hierarchy System for more information.)

Tokotas who are of submissive hierarchy status are not able to breed, although they can still earn their Arms of Akna.

While all tokotas are fully capable of rising in hierarchy, they are born into one of two of the hierarchy statuses. When tokos with different hierarchy statuses are bred to each other, offspring will be born as follows:

Dominant x Dominant = Average
Dominant x Average = Average
Average x Average = Submissive*


*If a tokota has acquired the trait Prominent there is a chance that breeding two Average tokotas can result in Average pups. For more information on Prominent, visit the Bonding Guide.
Pups cannot be born dominant: dominance must be achieved through experience such as activities, training, events and competitions.



Breeding Limitations


All Tokotas have limitations on how much they can breed. When trying to breed past the slot limit, the breeding will be declined. Breeding slots do not stack. This means that, for example with a normal build male, if you use all 15 slots at average, you do not get 35 more slots at dominant.

Normal/Toki Builds


Male

  • Average: 15 slots total.
  • Dominant: 35 slots total.
  • Alpha: No additional slots are unlocked.
  • For every 100 HP after dominance, males can unlock 5 more slots at Hierarchy Updates, up to a total of 65 extra slots.


Female


  • Average: 15 slots total.
  • Dominant: 20 slots total.
  • Alpha: 30 slots total.
  • Akna's Presence Trait: 25 slots at average, 30 slots at dominant, 40 slots at alpha
  • For every 100 HP after dominance, females can unlock 2 more slots at Hierarchy Updates, up to a total of 10 extra slots.


Dire Build


Male


  • Average : 8 slots total.
  • Dominant: 11 slots total.
  • Alpha: 17 slots total.
  • Exemplary Dire Blood Trait: 11 slots at average, 15 slots at dominant, 21 slots at alpha.
  • Exemplary Dire Blood II Trait: 17 slots at dominant, 23 slots at alpha.
  • For every 100 HP after dominance males can unlock 1 more slot at Hierarchy Updates, up to a total of 5 extra slots.


Female


  • Average: 5 slots total.
  • Dominant: 10 slots total.
  • Alpha: 17 slots total.
  • Exemplary Dire Blood Trait: 10 slots at submissive/average, 12 slots at dominant, 19 slots at alpha.
  • Exemplary Dire Blood II Trait: 14 slots at dominant, 21 slots at alpha.
  • For every 100 HP after dominance females can unlock 1 more slot at Hierarchy Updates, up to a total of 5 extra slots.


Akota Build


Male


  • Average: 6 slots total.
  • Gentle Akota Bloodlines: Grants the Akota with this trait 2 additional lifetime breeding slots.
    • For every 150 HP after dominance males can unlock 1 more slot at Hierarchy Updates, up to a total of 4 extra slots.


Female


  • Average: 4 slots total.
  • Gentle Akota Bloodlines: Grants the Akota with this trait 2 additional lifetime breeding slots.
    • For every 150 HP after dominance females can unlock 1 more slot at Hierarchy Updates, up to a total of 4 extra slots.


To keep an eye on where your chosen parents - or you - are relative to their breeding limits, check the trackers that can be found in the Breeding Requests journal.



Litter Sizes



The division or sale of a litter of pups must be decided amongst both owners. The group will only settle disputes in which there is very clear and specific proof of the deal. Many things will affect the size of the litter.

Maximum litter size


Normal/Toki x Normal/Toki


Standard: 4
Dominant dam and/or fertility root: 5
Fertility supplements: 6

Dire x Normal


Standard: 3
Dominant dam and/or fertility root: 4
Fertility supplements: 5

Dire x Dire


Standard: 2
Dominant dam OR close care: 3
Dominant dam AND close care: 4

Akota x Dire


Standard: 1
Dominant Akota dam or sire: 2

Akota x Akota


Standard: 1
Dominant Akota dam or sire: 2

Companions


Hare Companion: 25% chance to add another pup onto the normal roll.
Swan Companion: 1-5 pups rolled in each litter (1-6 if tokota is Dom). Does not work on Dire x Dire breedings.



Dire Breeding Percentages


This section enables you to find the chance of rolling dire pups in a breeding, along with what percentage of dire blood those pups would have. Simply find the lowest percentage parent's section, then the box that crosses it with the higher parent. The first line is the proportion of dire blood any dire pups will have. The second and third line show the chance out of 100 each pup has to be dire (D) vs normal (N).

I'll guess no, but ask just to makes sure :) Does the Akna's Blessing traits have the same/any effect on dires and akotas?

EDIT: Found my answer in comments! No for Dires, so most probably not for akotas :)

:iconfurreon:
Furreon Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2020  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes. Every user can post a grand total of 5 breedings at maximum. 2 "normal" breedings, 1 "extra" breeding that you will need to unlock by either using an Inukshuk Talisman or by making a breeding image/lit featuring the tokotas being bred. The last two require at least one of the tokotas being bred to have the trait Passionate. One Passionate breeding must include the upgraded version of the trait, Passionate II. So in short you can post 2 normal, 1 extra, 1 Passionate and 1 Passionate II breedings. You can read more about breeding posting limits from here: Breeding Rules

If you're using the extra breeding, yes. The breeding form has a line for the breeding image/lit/talisman usage. No other breeding you can post requires breeding images/lits.

I have a new Takota waiting to be checked and everything, but he is a submissive, can he not breed? (Even when I get the Arms Of Akna badge thingy?) sorry I’m a newbie XD!
Reply
:iconfennarchy:
Fennarchy Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2019
Tokotas who are of submissive hierarchy status are not able to breed, although they can still earn their Arms of Akna.
So even if they can get their Arms of Akna (AoA) done, they'll still be unable to breed. 
You'll need to raise their hierarchy to average before you can start.

You can read more about the hierarchy system here : Hierarchy System
Once your toko has obtained enough "HP" (hierarchy points) you can submit them to the hierarchy updates journal located in the "cycling journals hub". 
 
You'll find most of the important journals there to do with your tokota and participating in the game. :) 

Also! Your toko will need to be accepted and uploaded before you can submit them in for a hierarchy update

Alright, I've been shy about asking this question for a LONG time, but I really want to know...

I have an inbred female Tokota.  Her SDS and DS are the same.  If I were to breed her with a non-related male, and the SDS line would no longer be visible, would the pups still have genetic defects or would the "removal" of that from the visible lineage clear the pups so they would be healthy?  

Thank you!!

:iconpvppybiites:
pvppybiites Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2019  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hello! The breeding will stilll have to be rolled for inbreeding penelties since it is visible on the dams lineage!

However, since the inbreeding will not be visible on the pups, you or the new owner will not have to list that they are inbred! You would only have to list the defects they may recieve c: Any pup that those pups would have would be completely healthy so long as they do not get inbred

How do inbreeding penalties work, more specifically? I'm thinking about starting some dire breeding projects and I've never dabbled in inbreeding before and wanted to learn a little more before I started.
Are inbreeding penalties still effective when the pup won't show the inbreeding in it's lineage? (last line inbreeding I believe it's called)
Are penalties treatable in a rare RE? I've heard rumors though I'm not as curious on this one.

:icontokotasofpineridge:
TokotasofPineRidge Featured By Owner May 8, 2018  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
As far as inbreeding goes, this little journal I threw together should help explain - Toko genetics, broken down
And yes, but it is a very rare RE. You can also use a box of chocolates but all that does is prevent death. pups will still get the health penalties

:iconmystic-breakthrough:
Mystic-Breakthrough Featured By Owner May 8, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh, thank you! So for pups where the inbreeding doesn't show on their lineage, it isn't labeled in their health but any penalties are listed as just standard penalties? ovo

Is there a possible chance that your Toko can mate with a wild one? Like while you are trying to breed and you make something with a wild and your Toko interacting like, say, sniffing each other? Just thought it would be cool if you could do that.
Reply
:iconlightningspam:
lightningspam Featured By Owner May 8, 2018  Student Traditional Artist
I'm afraid there's not a random pairing (your tokota x random wild) breeding option if that's what you're asking but there are player owned wilds that you can buy/trade stuff for slots to in order to breed your toko to a tamed wild. :> If that makes sense. x3

So. . . just because I'm curious is there anything in female tokos favor to balance the fact that while a male normal or toki build can acquire a total of 100 slots a female of the same even with the special trait can only acquire 50?
Reply
:iconlightningspam:
lightningspam Featured By Owner May 8, 2018  Student Traditional Artist
Not really I suppose. It was likely based on semi realistic things like a male toko could still mate with others while a female toko would have a gestation period where there wouldn't be anymore baby making til the babies be born. Shorter explanation being I guess female toko can only push out babies so many times? <8D Obv 50 times is not at all realistic but the males being able to breed more would be. Does that make sense? xDD

So for dire females, it says at dom you will have 10 slots total, so +5 slots. at Alpha 17 slots total, so +7 slots, but every 100 HP after dom unlocks 1 slot. so technically, do you unlock 10 slots going from dom to alpha? +3 for 300 HP, and +7 for being Alpha. Meaning you can further unlock 2 more slots after alpha?
Reply
:icondiscrete-disguise:
Discrete-Disguise Featured By Owner Mar 26, 2018
That is correct!

You will still have to use the extra slot thread in hierarchy updates to have admins unlock those 3 slots with your dom-alpha hp though c: it doesn't automatically unlock the hp-earned slots when updating to alpha
