We recently added a new “Ancestry” page to the WK 101 Class on the blog and we need to clear up some confusion.
This is NOT a change to the way in which traits pass. Rather, this is how traits have always passed. The purpose of the post was to address misinformation already out there in the breeding community not to suggest anything has changed. Nothing has changed. The Big Cats and Wild Dogs work the same today as they have since they were introduced regards to their parents.
What has a chance of passing into any animal is what you can get from the animal itself (“Stats” button on its menu) or its parents (“Parents” button on its menu). Some other traits can and will show up as random drops as you level up or level down. Traits further back in an animals ancestry have no chance of passing.
