A gem is a valuable form of currency in Dragon City. It is trade-able for items perceived to be valuable in the Game (e.g., Ultra Breeding Tree), and items in mini-games (e.g., Dragon Black Market and Quests).
|1||Purchasing with real money (credit card or cellphones)||Credit Card / Mobile / FB Redemption Card||25 - 1 700 gems|
|2||PVPs (Combat)||Win Battles against 7 Teams||2 (FB) / 3 (Mobile) gems|
|3||Stadium||Win a Battle against a Themed Battle Team||2 gems|
|4||XP||Level up||1 gem|
|5||Invite Friends||Send an invite to your friend from the main App (not from the Tavern or a mini-game). Your friends must accept the request in a specific manner, and play DC past the Tutorial (Level 15) and other caveats. SP has had some problems with this, so it may not work correctly.||5 gems|
|6||Monday Reward||Click on one of three buttons.||5 gems|
|7||Deus Daily Bonus||Shuffle the cards once every 24 hours, then pick one. (Caution: your chance is not 1 in 9. It is estimated (not calculated) to be roughly one in 200, or 0.5%.||50 gems|
|8||Completing Collection Of The Dragon Book||Breed Dragons to complete the collection, then feed the Dragons to at least lv7||2 - 9 gems|
How Many Gems a Day?
The following calculation only considers a Player who logs in 3 times a day (8:00am, 2:00pm, 8:00pm) and is reasonably proficient in Battles.
- Tournament 2 wins: 2 x 2 x 7 gems
- PVP 3 x 3 wins: 9/7 x 3 x 7 gems (3 gems on Mobile Devices; only 2 gems on the PC)
Total per week: 55 gems or about 8 gems a day.
This total does not take into account User Leveling (1 gems per Level), in-game gem gifts (e.g., Alien Invasion, under Space Abduction), gems rewards from completing Dragon Book collections (limited), free gem gifts from DC app page, and so on.
A reasonably proficient DC Player can therefore earn enough gems a month to perform an outright buyout for most DC mini-games/Events. A less proficient Player may need to spend roughly US$2:00 to do the same.
