Updated December 15, 2019

Introduction

Welcome to the Clash of Streamers Pet breeding guide; a guide on how to breed shiny pets, colored pets, as well as pets with higher rarities.

Pet breeding is an important part of Clash of Streamers for many reasons.

Pet breeding can get you the following benefits:

These benefits can be huge if you are doing a good job breeding the right types of pets.

The way you'll receive these benefits is by breeding the following pet types:

  • Shiny pets
  • Colored pets
  • High level pets

Throughout this guide, we will discuss different pet breeding methods to maximize your chance of receiving shiny pets, colored pets, and high level pets.

Pet Breeding Essentials

The essence of pet breeding comes down to luck. With improved luck, you will improve your overall chance to get better pets of every type.

Luck can be improved in the following ways:

  • By collecting more pets and pet skins
  • Through pet passive abilities

You can view the luck score of a certain faction by heading into Geopet GO and opening the hatchery menu. As you collect more pets and pet skins from a certain faction, that faction’s luck score will increase.

To maximize your luck score through collecting pets and pet skins, you should do the following:

  1. Catch 50 pets per day in Geopet GO or by breeding them in the Match-3 building.
  2. Capture all hatcheries and ensure you are getting the maximum of 50 eggs per day.
  3. Hatch eggs on a regular basis (or all at once; can be combined with the pet ability Hatching with Love to increase the chance of more rare pets).
  4. If you want to increase the luck score further, purchase pet skins on the Auction House.

As you do this, you will gradually notice that your luck score will be improving.

The higher your luck score is, the better your chances of receiving higher rarity pets, as well as potentially pets with higher levels/stars.

It should also be noted that different pet rarities have different effects on the luck score.

For example...

  • Legendary Pets: Highest impact on luck score
  • Epic Pets: Moderate impact on luck score
  • Rare Pets: Lowest impact on luck score

Therefore, if you are looking to buy pet skins from the Auction House to help improve your luck score - buy legendary or epic pets!

In addition to increasing your luck score by collecting pets and pet skins, you can also increase it through pet passive abilities.

The following pet passive abilities improve luck score:


Lucky Break

Passive: You've caught a lucky break that increases your overall luck by 1%.


Luck Struck

Passive: You struck it lucky, increasing your overall luck by 1%.


These pet passive abilities both increase your luck score, allowing you to get better pets.

Whenever you are looking to have a better chance of breeding certain pets, you should pretty much always equip these abilities on each of your active pets.

Take a look at the Pet Abilities Guide for info on enabling the effects of abilities as well as what active pets are.

The Lucky Break and Luck Struck abilities can be applied on every pet faction; so you can have a total of 12 abilities enabled which impact your overall luck score. With six 9-star active pets, your overall luck score will increase by more than 120%!

This can have a huge impact on your ability to breed more shiny pets and colored pets.

The best time to equip these abilities is only when you are looking to breed a ton of pets.

It's a waste to have these abilities enabled at all times because it's unlikely that you will be looking to breed pets every single day.

When looking to improve your chances of breeding certain types of pets, you should follow these steps:

  1. Choose a select time period that you will be breeding pets.
  2. The week before you plan on breeding pets, equip the Lucky Break and Luck Struck abilities on each of your active pets.
  3. Breed pets using one of the following strategies in the sections below.

This will allow you to still take advantage of some of the strategies found inside of the Best Pet Strategies Guide as well as the different faction strategies (Kappa, KappaPride, LuL, PogChamp, SMOrc, TriHard).

Since these luck abilities don't really impact your progression outside of the realm of pets, you should mainly be following other strategies until you look to breed a ton of pets.

No matter which type of pet you aim to get from breeding, you should always follow the tips above to improve your chances by default.

In the sections below, you will learn about different strategies that you can use to get different types of pets.

Breeding Shiny Legendary Pets

Shiny legendary pets are considered the most valuable pets in the game.

They are valuable for the following reasons:

  • They have the best odds of breeding colored pets
  • They can be sold/rented in the Blockchain building for DUBI (see Selling/Renting Pets Guide)
  • They are the most epic and aesthetically pleasing looking pets
  • They are the most difficult pets to acquire

Shiny legendary pets are extremely rare and have a ton of uses. For the reasons mentioned above, they will be the most sought after pets by far.

This section aims to cover all information needed to help improve your chances of getting more shiny legendary pets through pet breeding.

In addition to following the essential tips in the section above, doing the following will also increase your chance of acquiring shiny legendary pets:

  • Equip the Hatching with Love ability on all active pets
  • Breed two legendary pets together

When hatching eggs to try for a shiny legendary pet, you need to make sure you have the Hatching with Love ability equipped on all of your active pets.


Lucky Break

Passive: Increases your chance to hatch pets of higher rarity by 1%.


This will increase your chances of getting pets of a higher rarity when hatching eggs. If you are acquiring more legendary pets, you are also indirectly improving your chances of getting a shiny legendary pet.

Additionally, if you are matching pets, you want to match two legendary pets together.

Matching pets of higher rarity will also improve your chances of getting higher rarity offspring.

Since the legendary rarity is the highest pet rarity, matching legendary pets gives you the best chance of acquiring a legendary pet as the offspring.

To summarize, you should do the following:

  1. Gather a ton of eggs over the course of several weeks.
  2. Equip the Lucky Break, Luck Struck, and Hatching with Love abilities on all of your active pets and then wait until the weekly reset (Friday, 12AM GMT).
  3. During the week you have these luck increasing abilities enabled, hatch all eggs, and match 50 pets a day to have the best opportunity to get a shiny legendary pet.

As long as you follow the tips found in this section and the essential section found above, you will eventually encounter a shiny legendary pet.

While it might take awhile, following these tips will give you the best possible chance of encountering a shiny legendary pet when matching pets or hatching eggs.

Breeding Colored Pets

While colored pets may not be quite as valuable as shiny pets, they can still be very valuable because they still have a variety of uses.

They are useful in the following ways:

  • Each colored pet collected will grant you an additional achievement
  • Colored pets are more rare, and will likely sell for more Crypton on the Auction House

This can be important if you are looking to earn a lot of Crypton to help you make money through the Blockchain building.

So how can you get colored pets?

To start, it’s important that we talk about the fundamental way you can get colored pets.

You get colored pets purely by breeding shiny pets with other pets.

Every time you match a shiny pet with another pet (shiny or non-shiny), there is a chance that the color of the shiny pet to pass on to the offspring.

Here are all the different odds of creating a colored pet:

  • Matching 1 shiny legendary pet & 1 non-shiny pet: 50% chance
  • Matching 1 shiny epic pet & 1 non-shiny pet: 5% chance
  • Matching 1 shiny rare pet & 1 non-shiny pet: 0.5% chance
  • Matching 2 shiny legendary pets: 75% chance
  • Matching 2 shiny epic pets: 9.75% chance
  • Matching 2 shiny rare pets: 0.9975% chance
  • Matching 1 shiny legendary pet & 1 shiny epic pet: 52.5% chance
  • Matching 1 shiny legendary pet & 1 shiny rare pet: 50.25% chance
  • Matching 1 shiny epic pet & 1 shiny rare pet: 5.475% chance

Based on these values, it’s clear that you have the best chance of creating colored pets by matching two shiny legendary pets together.

Your primary goal should be to ensure you have shiny legendary pets before trying to get colored pets.

Since matching two shiny legendary pets has the best chance of producing a colored pet, you should follow the strategy in the previous section before trying to get colored pets.

As soon as you have at least one shiny legendary pet, you can safely and easily start to breed colored pets.

This will give you the best opportunity to get colored pets. If you're looking to earn Crypton, selling colored pets on the Auction House can be a great way to do so.

Take a look at the Auction House Trading Guide for more info on selling colored pets.

High Level Pets

High level pets can be extremely useful for one main reason.

High level pets can be destroyed for a lot of pet dust, which can then be used to level up different pets.

Since getting pets to level 4 is often a huge challenge, improving your chances of getting high level pets can be a huge deal. The more level 4 pets you have, the more passive abilities you'll have access to. As a result, you'll find yourself progressing a lot faster in Clash of Streamers.

So how do you get high level pets?

In order to improve your chances of getting high level pets, the process is fairly straightforward.

You should do the following:

  1. Follow the strategy involved in the pet breeding essentials section above.
  2. Equip the Egg Powerleveler ability on all active pets.

Following both of these steps will give you the best chances of breeding high level pets.

In addition, you should also ensure that the pets you breed together are legendary pets.

Although it is not confirmed whether or not higher rarity pets improve the chances of getting higher level pets, it's worth doing anyways since there is no extra cost to it.
