Cryo tribble is from the Deferi weekly episodes and requires using either a Mattson or Ricosso tribble to eat the Deferi Snow Tubers to be produced. It will only be produced 1 time per character. After that the food gets eaten but no new cryo tribble is produced.
Wait. What? My tribble breeder has 4 Matt & 4 Rico spread out among his 8 BO. I also pulled a DEA out of the bank to breed with the Comet coctail on my Captain. When my inventory breeds a cryo I pull it & the mom back to the BO who lent it and pulled out the next tribble to breed. I am down to 2 snow tubers and have 8 Cryo. I pulled the first Matt back out to get a cryo for my captain.
Do you mean I wasn't supposed to be able to do this? Did my tribbles do this because they didn't know any better? Or is it 1 cryo per tribble, and the first Matt will now give me junk? I certainly got more than one cryo per character and it only took me 8 hours. Of course with 2 tribble apeace, some of my BO won't pet either so that the tribbles won't think they play favorites, and the others pet them less. It seems random if they pic Matt or a Cryo (or Rico or Cryo if that is what they have).
So far, I've bred five Cryo tribbles from the same Mattson with no problems. Got loads of Tubers left, and I intend to use them all to get more Cryos - I'm the fleet tribble breeder, so all the food gets donated to me and I just hand out good tribbles as I breed them.
I've had a Mattson in my inventory with the tubers for weeks now, and it still hasn't bred into a cryo. I've hit my ding on the ground numerous times, but still no hit on it. Would this be a problem with the tubers, perhaps, a bugged instance of the item?
