I'm having lots of luck breeding new combinations. I lit ten torches to increase my odds and it seems to have worked. I used some diamonds to speed up breeding, and now have five new Shugafam members since the island first appeared. I'm puzzling about how I got Shugitar, since I don't have Oaktopus on my island yet. I think it was with Furcorn, but I can't remember for sure.
I think its really just a game of luck again like the ethereals, i mean i managed to breed about six reebros on air island all within two weeks of starting breeding for them, but even after about two months still havent got a single one of the ghazt or grumpyre
I dont think that torches are needed for the Shugafam... seems to be going fine without them. And I dont think that they are classed as "rare" - just Legendary!!!
I have the Shugarock and Shugitar and one more breeding, possibly the Shugabeats. I have not fed the breeding Monsters up to a very high level for breeding... maybe Level 10 or 11.
I dont want to mess up my Cold Island decorations for Xmas, so I am holding on to my Deedge for now. I will send him over later... =) waiting for my breeding structure to be free to send the Oaktopus.
Just like on the Ethereal Island, I have to assume that your can cross the different Family members in order to get another one of them... Like breed a Shugarock and a Shugitar and you will get one or the other... to increase the size of the Band!!!
