Axies, just like real-life pets, can be bred to create even more axies. When breeding axies, the offspring has a chance of inheriting parts and traits from either parent.
Each time you breed an axie, it will cost you 0.5 AXS tokens, in addition to a varying amount of SLP [Smooth Love Potion] that is dependent on how many times your axies have already been bred. Please bear in mind that axies can only be bred a maximum of 7 times. The following table shows the SLP cost per parent at each breed count.
|Breed Count||Breed Number||SLP Cost per Parent|
AXS and Smooth Love Potions can be earned from playing the game. You can also use Katana to swap/exchange other tokens for AXS and SLP on the Ronin network.
How to Breed Axies
Step 1: On one of the axies that you will be breeding, click the "Breed" button.
Step 2: On the next screen, select your second axie for the breeding pair.
Step 3: You will then see the SLP and AXS amounts needed to breed your axies. If you have enough, you’ll be able to press the "Let’s Breed" button.
Step 4: You will then get a confirmation screen from the Ronin wallet. Click "Confirm" to sign and complete the transaction.
Step 5: You will see a confirmation screen after a few seconds, and an egg will then be delivered to your inventory. All newly created axies will have an incubation period of 5 days. Once these 5 days have passed, you will be able to morph your egg and welcome your new axie home.
Each axie has 6 body parts, a body type, and will belong to 1 of 9 different classes.
All axies have a genetic makeup consisting of dominant and recessive genes. These genes are expressed as dominant [D], recessive [R1], and minor recessive [R2].
The dominant gene is what determines the axie's appearance and cards. When breeding, each gene has a percentage chance of being passed down to the offspring. Please see the following for a breakdown of this calculation:
- Dominant [D]: 37.5% chance to pass this gene to offspring.
- Recessive [R1]: 9.375% chance to pass this gene to offspring.
- Minor Recessive [R2]: 3.125% chance to pass this gene to offspring.
