Dino Fusion and Obtaining a Rare or Extinct Dino
I have a question that may have been addressed elsewhere – I apologize if I overlooked it – but I’ve been thinking about this as time goes by and I build my little collection. Is there a formula or higher likelihood of getting a rare (or more desirable) dino if you fuse higher level dinos versus simply two level fours?
I know that dino fusion has “opened up;” meaning that the theory is that any tier 0, 1, or 2 dino is eligible to fuse for a “level up” dino.
I also understand that the likelihood of a successful fusion is mathematical; meaning that I can get two level 4.0 dinos (I include the decimal to represent the number of feedings required within the level) and keep fusing them until it’s successful. It doesn’t cost me anything to keep fusing other than a matter of time and patience. (so far, my highest is eight attempts before success). Certainly, this is the cheapest method, because i don’t feed the dino any more than I have to and I have received a couple extinct, rare, desirable (whatever adjective you prefer) dinos.
Regardless, I’m starting to wonder whether or not there is a different formula to obtaining specific dinos. For example, a points system where your current dino’s level (4.0 versus 7.x versus 10) not only goes toward a probability of successful fusion, but also a probability of obtaining a rare dino. (please note that I’m not saying guarantee of obtaining, because I recognize that two level tens could just as easily make a very common dino).
Any thoughts about this?
