The Nutrio Incubator Upgrade Segment:
An Upgrade for the Incubator Segment can be acquired at Mastery Rank 5, whether by acquiring the Blueprint from the Clan Dojo's Tenno Lab, crafting it in the Foundry, or purchasing directly from the Market for 175 Platinum.
Upgrade adds the following perks to the Incubator Segment, making Kubrow maintenance easier to manage:
- Egg Incubation reduced by a day.
- Stabilizers last twice as long.
Note: As of patch 30.5, we have removed the DNA Integrity and Loyalty groups from the Companion Management Screen, and removed DNA Stabilizers from the Market. Previously only the Nutrio Incubator Upgrade Segment could eliminate DNA degradation.
Genetic Aging Regressing
Within the Incubator, players can now choose to "Regress Genetic Aging" of an existing Mature Companion back to their non-mature state (puppy, kitten, etc.).
Keep in mind that this action unequips said Companion (if it was equipped) and its Armor/cosmetics are removed.
At any time players can choose to Mature said Companion at which it will revert to its former Mature state with its existing Levels, stats, and Armor/cosmetics intact. There's no limit to how many times players can Regress a Companion!
There are several characteristics assigned to your Kubrow that can be considered their "genes". When you create an imprint of your Kubrow, these genes are stored in the imprint. When combining two identical imprints, you will receive a copy of the Kubrow they were created from, except for gender and size attributes which are always randomly determined.
Each Kubrow Imprint created contains the following details, taken from the source Kubrow:
- Base Color: Base color of the fur pattern
- Secondary Color: Secondary color of the fur pattern
- Tertiary Color: Tertiary color of the fur pattern
- Body Type: Regular, Heavy, or Thin
- Eye Color: Color of the Kubrows eyes
- Fur Pattern: Striped, Polka Dots, Lotus, etc.
- Breed : Sahasa, Raksa, Huras, Chesa or Sunika
Note: Customization of appearance using gene-masking kits does NOT change the stored traits on created imprints.
Breeding with Genetic Imprints:
When combining two imprints from two entirely different Kubrows, each gene value has a 50/50 chance of becoming the dominant value on the new Kubrow pup. So if Raksa and Sahasa templates are used, the resulting Kubrow will be one of those two breeds.. If two Raksa imprints are used, the resulting Kubbie will always be a Raksa Kubrow.
For fur colors, each color is chosen separately. The result may be the primary and secondary colors of one print or a mixture of the two.
Fur pattern color choices may lead to some confusion as fur patterns have different primary and secondary color locations based on the pattern chosen.
The pictures below show the difference between two imprints with the same colors but different fur patterns:
Note: Breeding rules and Genetics have similar applications in Breeding Kavats.
