Phrase information

Perhaps this will help someone somewhere understand what the phrases mean a little better. Some setup: I used Spirit dragon to determine what these specific word combinations did for that one, so I am unsure as of now as to what they will do for other dragons.

The combinations themselves seem more based on the first word as to what pool of stats they pull out of, generating only so many types of combinations, and then the second word determines what specific combinations out of that pool it actually chooses. EX:

Past is Shining gave 4 different sets:
Weight, Wisdom, HP, Speed, Muscle, Special/Uses.
2.8 26 112 138 144 109/4
3.2 21 113 145 142 119/4
3.6 27 153 96 136 119/3
1.8 27 107 146 148 120/4

And Past is Alive gave 4:
2.8 26 112 138 144 109/4
1.8 27 107 146 148 120/4
4.4 23 154 101 131 114/4
3.2 24 94 139 142 117/4

Which overlapped 2 of the sets. Interestingly, Past is Rising gave these 4:
1.8 27 107 146 148 120/4
3.2 24 94 139 142 117/4
2.8 26 112 138 144 109/4
3.2 21 113 145 142 119/4

All 4 of which overlapped one of the first 2 sets of words.

I did a few more from the same first word and had a few overlapping beyond that, but haven't done an extensive search for all of them. The reason I say I think the first word builds the pool is because I did do a few other beginning words, specifically Life is Eternal, Power is Eternal, and Armageddon is Burning, and got no overlaps with each other, nor any of the Past... combinations.

I won't keep giving numbers because it really won't help much. The numbers of the 3 sets I already posted are fairly random in their layout with a few outliers in each one that don't seem to follow any logical pattern, at least to me. I will keep looking up more combinations and see if any patterns do crop up, however.

Also, in case you were wondering, Life is Eternal and Power is Eternal all were awful stat combinations. I don't recommend either of those the same that other people do. At best got 2 stats over 100 and all really high weighted dragons.

Using the same set up, I tried a few with Life, specifically Shining, Alive, and Rising. Theory holds true. Shining and Alive overlapped a couple times, and Rising overlapped with both of those with an extra set that didn't. It is looking more and more like the first word produces the whole set, and the second word produces a subset that the game chooses from.

I've seen a regular 4 stat sets from the second word, but occasionally I get a 5th set, which leads me to believe that there are 5 pointers off the second word which just finds 5 seemingly random sets out of the large pool. Some word combinations have a tendency to have better stats, but I couldn't tell you that any specific word tends to increase or decrease certain stats. Especially since I am looking at a fairly small pool so far.

Testing done for Life was solely to test my theory, and now that I have my theory for first word, I will test more on the second word with Past... again. Hopefully I will find something useful about the second word that is worthy of posting.

Past... tends to have higher Speed and Muscle, lower weight, and fairly average stats for the remainder.

Life... has higher HP, Special, and weight, with very low stats for the rest. 59 speed is the lowest I've seen, yet.
