Precious Gems are found in the treasure chamber of the market. They serve to accelerate the time it takes to construct buildings, clear obstacles, eggs hatch, breed, update your nursery more eggs to keep them as a group grow, treats, make decorations and everything to do with time, except the coliseum. The most important use of the gems is likely to upgrade your nursery as the ability to breed more than one egg can be invaluable.

There are basically two ways to get Gems in DragonVale.
Free Gems

Gems can also be receive for free from friends gifting you. You can receive an infinite amount of gems per day (assuming you had an infinite amount of friends willing to send them to you), but you can only send out three gems a day to people on your friends list. The Strategies page lists a very useful strategy in which a group of four friends. You can only gift your Gems 3 times a day to the other three people in the group (including four of you) and they do the same thing, that as you are guaranteed to get all the gems to 3 per day, no matter what. It is very effective because you are basically three hours can slip away from a breeding season or once a day or building a stockpile of gems and make breeding very quickly in succession.
Note: You can also get free gems in the Colosseum with the victory. For bronze-medal you do zero, you get 2 for silver and for gold you get 5.

Paid Gems

Gems can be bought for real money as a treasure by the market monitor. The pictures above show how many Gems you can buy per dollar. Treats such as cash and dragon, you are “incentives” offered Gems when you spend a large sum of money at once. It is one of the staple food of the in-app purchase system and would be without them in the studio or game publishers do not generate revenue from the game.

Now unlike Treats or DragonCash , Gems are probably the only thing worth buying in DragonVale. Treats are easily grown and the rate at which you grow them seems to keep up with the rate of your dragon production and leveling. DragonCash can be eaily obtained after level 14 by breeding the air dragon which takes 2 hours to breed and 2 hours to hatch and sells for 500,000 DragonCash (so you don’t need to worry about that anymore). So if you have the inclination to purchase anything in the game, we’d advise purchasing Gems.

    Love the website!I’d like to ssguegt an Indian place in Reynoldsburg. It used to be called Venky’s Spice House although it’s changed names and I’m not sure what it’s currently called . It’s located in the strip mall on the West side of Brice Road just South of Main (across from K-Mart.)I say place because it’s not so much a restaurant, but rather an Indian grocery store with a small kitchen in the back counter to eat at and three quaint booths. I often go for lunch and order tali which can be ordered vegetarian or with the chicken curry and one vegetable side. Served with rice and hot fresh buttery naan, so good and not bad for like $8-9. One of the vegetable sides I love is the Gobee Manchurian, which is a lightly fried cauliflower with onion and green pepper in a red sauce that had a sort of asian influence, very spicy and very good. Basically it’s the best Indian food I’ve had in Columbus, check it out!

    For a not-at-all-intimidating option over on 845 W 5th Ave is Coco’s Grill tueckd in a strip mall next to a state liquor store and a Burger King. It’s a nice little Chinese place that has some good vegetarian dishes, usually included in the Chinese-only daily specials which they’ll gladly translate for you.Another place of interest for Chinese would have to be Joy’s Village next to OSU just north of Panda Express. I’m a fan of the Indonesian ( Indostea on the menu) fried rice and I’m not even a fan of fried rice. They also have more unusual offerings like pickled pork intestines (OK. I haven’t gotten around to ordering those yet) and a good sign is the family and staff eat there.
