If you think you can do so without sufficient Dragonvale gems in the game, then you are sadly mistaken. In Dragonvale, gems are more valuable than money and as a matter of fact, it is for this reason I joined this game. The following are some of the main reasons why gems are important in the game Dragonvale.
Speed up the game
Sometimes, without enough money and gems, the game can become slow. Gems play an instrumental role in speeding up the hatching time of eggs, the growth of dragons and even the purchase of other islands for expansion purposes.
Sometimes, you can use your germs to buy rare dragons and eggs. For instance, a rainbow dragon is worth 2500 gems while a fog dragon is worth 1,000 gems. Germs can also be used to purchase essentials in the market.
For Tending the Park
Your park is a floating island that has bushes, trees and rocks. Gems are useful for clearing bushes, making nurseries and breeding places in this island. Remember that the larger the bushes, trees and rocks, the more gems they will need so as to remove them.
The following are the ways that you can get Gems:
Through buying them
You can as well use your coins to buy gems though this is pretty expensive. You can buy them from friends or from the market depending on your preferences.
Visit Friend’s Parks
You may not earn much from making friends and visiting their parks but what you will earn will be worth much more than nothing. Once every day there will be small party hats on your friend’s island when you visit their park and by touching the party hats, you will be able to get some rewards though the amount of money to be received depends on the size of your park at the time of your visit.
Through your dragons and eggs
Babysitting your dragons is a way to earn you some cash that you can in turn use to purchase germs. You can also place your dragons on sale so as to earn gems from them especially when they are from the rarer breeds such as the rainbow dragon.
As gifts from Friends
In Dragonvale, you may send a single gem to three different friends in a day as a gift. However, not many “friends” in this game are that kind to give you their hard earned gems for free! Therefore, as much as a friend may send you gem as a gift, he will expect you to return the same hospitality.
Through trade with Friends
A friend can add you up on the game and send you gems on the understanding that you will trade something in return. For instance, a friend may agree to send you a hundred germs in exchange for a dragon egg that he needs and you have. Therefore, you have to know that such dealings are a matter of understanding and trust between the two of you. Trade means that you exchange your friend’s gems with something else.
Regardless of the methods that you will use to get your Dragonvale gems, you better ensure that you always have gems with you as you play the game. Do not spend all your Dragonvale Germs on clearing forests and rocks from the island. Rather, learn to preserve them and use them only when need arises. Being wise and patient is the key to successful play of Dragonvale.
