Every Axie is born with variable genes. This means that each “body part” belonging to an Axie is a result of its DNA that is stored on the blockchain. Axies also have secret, hidden genes called recessives!
You can check your Axie’s recessive genes here.
You can use this breeding calculator to see the most likely outcomes of your pairing.
Some genes are really special. For example, some “Origin” Axies possess Mystic parts that can be upgrade into Legendary Body parts in the future.
Axies can breed together and pass their genes on to a new offspring. In this way, the Axie population will always be evolving, much like animals in nature. Please note that Mystic body parts cannot be passed on through breeding.
Players can breed Axies in two ways. They can either breed their Axies together or pay for a date with another player’s Axie.
To breed two of your own Axies, simply go to an Axie that you own and press “Breed”.
A window will pop asking whether you’d like to send your Axie to the “Mating Club” or breed it with one of your own Axies.
The Mating Club is where players can pay to breed with another player’s Axie. When you breed with an Axie in the Mating Club, you will receive the Axie egg and the owner of the Mating Club Axie will receive the siring fee. The siring fees vary — they are set by each Axie’s owner just like sale prices.
Next, you will be able to filter by your Axies and pick the perfect mate! Please note that there is no incest in Axie Infinity so parents and children cannot breed with each other. This also applies to siblings.
Once you have picked which of your Axies will be the pair, press “Start Breeding” and a MetaMask transaction will pop up.
Make sure that the GWEI is appropriate using ethgassation.info. The “safe low” is the lowest GWEI that miners are currently accepting to process the transaction. Right now, the breeding fee is .002 Ether and we are working on dropping the price soon!
In addition, breeding costs 300 EXP if the Axie you are breeding is a “virgin”. The Exp price to breed will increase with each subsequent breed so choose your breeds wisely! Since breeding is an arduous process, after 7 breeds, an Axie becomes sterile.
Here is how the EXP cost scales with each subsequent breed:
1st Breed: 700
2nd Breed: 900
3rd Breed: 900
4th Breed: 1500
5th Breed: 2400
6th Breed: 3000
7th Breed: 3000
After breeding, players will receive an egg. The egg will transform into a larvae after 1 day and will be grow into a petite Axie after 2 more days. This will require a small tx fee. Petite Axies can be transformed into adult Axies after 2 days. This will also require one more small tx fee.
Will you breed for beautiful aesthetics or a powerful battle Axie? The choice is up to you!
