Breeding of Wajas

Please see the talk page or edit summary for discussion.
Breeding on Wajas is done with one female and one male. If desired, the gender of a waja can be changed by feeding it a Gender Pear. There are three main types of breeding: reverse breeding (RB), studding, and breeding.
Breeding is most commonly known as when a user contacts one person, and asks them to breed one of their wajas to another person's waja. New players use this method, as do others who want a new waja without buying one.
Studding can be done when one user requests to breed their own female waja with another user's male waja. The female will become pregnant with that male waja's pups.
Reverse Breeding is the term when a user with a male waja requests a breeding with another user's female waja. The female will become pregnant with that male wajas pup/s. On the breeding page, the user may choose Me (to deliver the pups to the requester), Mother (to deliver the pups to the user who owns the mother), Father (to deliver the pups to the user who owns the father), or Player... (to deliver the pups to another user).
Users also auction off breeding slots for certain wajas if they do not plan to breed their waja a lot.
Crossbreeding is when different breeds of waja are bred together. Refer to the Breed Dominance Chart for more information.
 Waja Breeds
There are currently fourteen breeds of Wajas, all of which resemble a wolf in some form. Prior to the remolding of Wajas in 2007 and 2008, there was an unofficial breed referred to as the 'Breedless' waja. Rather than displaying an image of a waja, the entire image was blank and featured no waja.
The fourteen current species include:
- Normal: A waja resembling a docile wolf. It is the most common waja breed. A Lollipop turns any waja into this breed.
- Fire: A waja with three short tails and flame-encased paws. Eye color determines flame color. Burnt paper turns any waja into this breed.
- Plushie: A waja that appears to be a stuffed rendition of a wolf. It has button eyes and stitches. A Plastic Waja turns any waja into this breed.
- Water: An aquatic waja, featuring a wolfish front, and a long, fur-covered fish-like tail past the front legs. A Frog turns any waja into this breed.
- Corsie: A waja that appears to be much shorter in stature than the other breeds, resembling a corgi dog. This waja features a much shorter tail and floppy ears. Shrinking Powder is used to turn any waja into this breed.
- African: A waja that resembles an African wild dog. It is the only breed which is pictured to be facing forward. This breed has two tails and notably large ears. A Rock Waja is used to turn any waja into this breed.
- Egyptian: This waja is much slimmer and appears to have a much sleeker coat, with less pronounced shading in the fur. It has a long, thin tail and pointed ears. This breed is supposedly based off the jackal or Pharaoh Hound. A Miniature Pyramid is used to turn any waja into this breed.
- Earth: The only waja to appear to have hooves instead of paws, it features floppy ears and a very large, skunk-like fluffy tail. A Marble Horse Mold is used to turn any waja into this breed.
- Divine: Similar to its namesake, the Divine Waja appears regal and majestic almost like a dog-dragon. It is the only waja to have wings as part of its base design and is noted for it's long whiskers. A Celestial Star is used to turn any waja into this breed.
- Tempest: Released on March 3, 2008, and purchasable through custom tokens that were discounted at half price for one week. This waja has wind-ruffled fur, and is meant to be an air element waja. Its working name was the Wind/Air waja.
- Bane: A breed suggested by "Ankokou" #19098 released in October 2008. It features a snarling muzzle, claws, larger ears on a body similar to that of a Strand-wolf or Brown Hyena, and a long lion-like tail. It is unique to the other designs, with more detail in the art. It was released on November 12, 2008 and Bane tokens be available for sale every October. An Ominous Skull turns any waja into this breed.
- Aerial: A waja for the 2008 downtime and rollback, which was given out in apology packages starting December 2nd, 2008. It is a small, birdlike waja with feathers on its scruff and rump, and a crest of feathers on its head. Its tongue sticks out and looks similar to a proboscis. Though not yet for sale, Aerial creation tokens will be the only token purchasable from the game shop through Waja Credits. The Aerial Breed was based on a design breed suggested by "Ankokou" #19098 and was redrawn by Estuko. A Scaled Feather can be used to turn any waja into this breed.
- Imp: A mischievous breed by nature, meant to be the "joker" of all waja breeds. Think of the Joker from Batman...
- Spitz: A cute fluffy waja resembling the real Spitz breed characterized by long thick fur, pointed ears and muzzle. The tail is curled over the dog's back.
- Breedless: A waja that has a blank image and is sometimes referred to as "ghost" wajas. Dyes and mutations cannot be seen, however, they do come with marking/mutation/color stats. Items, cannot be equipped to them; however wallpapers can be. They are often used to display the wallpapers as it is a clear view of it. They can also be used to breed the specific waja type they want, as Breedless wajas are recessive to almost every other breed. Breeding to Divines will almost always produce a breedless. And breeding with other recessive breeds such as Earths can also produce breedless pups.
First generation wajas are custom-designed by the players. A custom Demo generator allows you to preview how the waja will look with your choice of markings, mutations and colors. If you have the appropriate token, you can choose to create the waja you are previewing, and save it to your cave.
Custom Tokens are purchased with CWP. 20 CWP buys a Silver Token, with which you can design and make a 2-marking waja. For 30 CWP you can buy a Gold Token, for creating a 3-marking waja and Diamond Tokens can be bought for 40 CWP. Diamond Tokens are used to create Wajas with up to 4 markings.
Tokens are sold for the following breeds: Normal, Corsie, Egyptian, and Fire. Divine, Earth and Bane Tokens are more expensive and have limited release dates. Aerial tokens are the least expensive as a large number was given out for free in an apology package and they will become the only token that can be bought through Waja Credits.
By using a "rock waja" or a "frog" (purchased from a player shop) on any custom waja, you can transform it into an African or a Water waja, respectively. A custom Plushie is created with a "plastic waja" that can be won at the Fish-a-Waja game. A "Lollipop" makes your waja into a Normal waja; "Burnt Paper" makes your waja a Fire waja; "Bottled Air "into Tempest; "Scaled Feather", Aerial.
 Breeding Percentages
Four percentages appear on a waja's profile, each detailing an aspect of the waja's breeding. In order, they are: MU, MG LQ and In%.
MU is a numerical value of a waja's Mutation Gene. It is a number from 0-100 and represents how strong a waja's mutation is (how well it will carry over to its pups). The higher the Mutation Gene, the more likely a waja's puppy will carry the mutation. This can be increased by feeding a waja a Strange pear.
MG is a numerical value of a waja's Male Gene. It is a number from 0-100 and represents the percentage of a puppy being male. Male wajas are more difficult to find on wajas. A puppy born male will not necessarily have a high MG, nor will he have a higher MG than his female siblings, but any waja whose parents have high MG's will be born with a relatively high MG as well. A waja's Male Gene can be increased by feeding it a Male pear.
LQ is a numerical value representing a waja's Litter Quantity. It is a number from 0-100 and represents the chances of getting more than one pup in a litter. Litters consist of 1-4 pup; the higher the LQ, the better your chances of getting twins or triplets. Quadruplets are rare, as the only way to get them is for both parents' LQs to be at 100. This can be increased by feeding the waja a Normal Pear.
In% is a numerical value representing the Inbreeding in a waja. The higher the percentage, the closer the family relation between the parents. This currently has no affect on the waja, but is frowned upon. It has been suggested that this may affect a waja's appearance at a later date. This can be decreased by feeding a waja an Ice Pear.
Every waja has a generation, or gen. This is how far down the family line the waja is. For example, custom wajas, wajas paid for with CWP, are gen 1. A pup from two customs is a gen 2, and a pup from two gen 2s is a gen 3.
If the pup's parents are different gens, then the pup's gen will be based on the higher-gen parent. For example, if a one parent is gen 1 but the other is gen 15, then the pup will be gen 16.
In most cases, lower generation wajas are more valuable. However, generations 100 and above can be worth quite a bit, if the waja has clear markings and does not appear 'muddy' as the result of too many weak markings and poorly combined color schemes. When an OWF (Obsessed Waja Fan) was first introduced, 'supergens' (wajas with a generation of 100 or more) fetched a higher price when sold to OWF. However soon the OWF was edited so that generation no longer mattered.
When breeding, many players look for common markings between two wajas of opposite gender. Markings that have a numerical value of 100 are the strongest, and are automatically attributed to custom wajas. Through breeding, markings may decrease in number if two wajas do not share the same marking.
A waja may have a different marking from it's parent if fed a Marking pear or if a dye has been used on it. (Similarly, a waja may show a mutation from eating a mutation pear). To date, the dyes available to use include Blaze, Celestial Wing, Cheetah, Collar, Dalmatian, Eye Shadow, Giraffe, Heart Cape, Hound, Jester, Kitsune, Knives, Okapi, Raging Wind, Hound, Skunk, Side Stripe, Toes, Large Dorsal Streak, Small Dorsal Streak, Mud, Ritual, Mask, Puma, Songbird, Spectre Mask and Raccoon. Custom wajas cannot be created with markings that are available as dyes.
Some wajas do not display any markings at all, and are referred to as 'markingless' in the Wajas community. Some of these wajas, such as pure black or white, can be worth more. (It depends on what the buyers want.)
Here is the list of current markings available on Wajas. Appaloosa, Back Spots, Back Stripe, Back Swirl, Belly, Belly Spots, Bird Wing Tips, Boots, Brindle, Butt Spots, Butt Stripes, Ear Tips, Elk, Face Marking, Half Belly, Hood, Husky, Jag, Leg Spots, Leg Stripes, Leopard Spots, Lines, Merle, Nose Streak, Ocelot, Panda, Pointed, Rainbow, Roan, Socks, SSE, Stars, Tail, Tan Points, Thylacine Tiger Stripes, Tribal, Wind, and Zebra.
Mutations are shown in a Waja's profile and may be shown or carried. If a waja shows a mutation, it appears on the image. A color is also attributed to the mutation. A shown mutation is indicated by an 'X.' A carried mutation is indicated by a '/' in which case the waja may transfer this mutation to a puppy of its own. A waja's mutation percentage (MU) will also affect the probability of the marking showing up in the puppy. The higher it is, the higher the probability the puppy will show it.
For example, two wajas that show a mutation will pass it down to their offspring. If one waja shows and one carries, there is a 50% chance of the offspring showing and a 50% chance of the offspring carrying.
