Gem stable quests gone again

There´s definitely a new "event" coming.

 

Why? Because all of the gem stable quests probably disappeared. Again. Just like they did when Dreadfall started. I had two gem stable quests waiting for the right dragon to finish its former quest. Now both quests are gone, replaced with useless coins-only quests.

 

In other words, the devs are again yelling and screaming at us "We don´t care if you players want bug fixes and new expansions, this is not going to give us money. We just want your money so we´re going to make something you don´t really want but will be spending money upon. And we are going to take out almost all ways you can get gems so we make even more money (insert evil laughter here)".

 

Nope. No way. If this proves true and the gem stable quests do not return, I quit this game. For good. I´m tired of being taken for a money-spending fool for the last six months.

 

Sad... now with the Covid-19 shutdowns I would actually have time to play this game for longer periods of time... but not like this.

I noticed that too; I've had 3 Gem Stable quests up and ready until yesterday while at the same time all 70 of my dragons have "escaped" their stables and I had to reorganize and corral them back to where they belong.

I'm going to be sooooooooo angry(and that's an understatement) if they've removed the gem stable quests again. The fact that it seems like new expansions and dragon eggs have been put on the backburner in favor of events is bad enough, it's even worse that they're having events every few months and every time they do so they remove the gem stable quests. I, for one, would rather events not happen if it's going to mean all the ways to get gems are going to be removed every time an event happens.

Well I updated my game. Came back with all my quests intact. One's missing, which is usually used for event stable quests.

 

I guess some people are less fortunate that they had to wrangle their dragons back to their stables x3x

I knew it! Glad I saved as many gems as I could when I had the chance.

Team SoD should know that removing ways to gain premium currency will not make people more inclined to buy said premium currency. If only it makes them less likely to.

 

Quitting the game seems like an overreaction though. The choice to pay money is your own. No one is forcing you to do that.

They did fix two things...

They did fix two things... They converted their videos from .ogg to .mp4, which means the videos don't look so choppy, and as soon as I complained that the new videos brought the bug of one side being louder, they immediately fixed that.

The gem quests aren't

The gem quests aren't completely gone....yet.  I've gotten the "Scavenger" gem quest (upper right slot) on 2 of my vikings today (one just now and one about 12 hours ago).  I thought they were gone too when they took away the lower left mission slot (presumably in preparation for another event) as I had not seen any on any of my vikings since then.  So not completely gone but definately very scarce. Keep refreshing!  Pretty crappy that the ones you were waiting to do disappeared. :(  Were any of them in the top right slot or were they in the other slots?  Maybe they stopped them in some but not all slots?

Thanks!

Thanks for telling us. So the update only removed existing gem quests but new ones are still available? That´s a relief... I really hope the quests appear again for me and that it stays that way.

 

The quests that disappeared were "How to train your titan" or similar (upper right) and "Rising Shockers" (lower right, member´s only slot)

Thanks for letting us know! That's a relief. I really hope that they let us keep the gem stable quests while this new event is going on.

Thanks for sharing! At least I know that AFK-ing in my stables won't be entirely pointless :þ

Hmmm

I'm a little sketchy at the moment.

 

My second viking has the scavenger gem quest, but that's because I left it there before I updated my app.

Since this thread's been created, I have not yet stumbled upon a gem quest except the toothless one (currently on trial membership).

 

I'll report back to here if I ever get a non-toothless gem quest. Especially for non-members.

Same, no gem quests have appeared me since the update got pushed through, and I normally tend to get a couple per day, at least. I'll make sure to update if I do happen to get one.

Has anyone gotten any luck with (non-member) stable quests, and if yes, could you cap it? Still haven't seen a single one!

Not yet, but then again, I'm at a slight disadvantage because I have mine constantly going to level up my dragons so I can't refresh them several times a day looking for gem ones.

The only gem quest that seems

The only gem quest that seems to still happen appears to be "Scavenger" (slot 3-top right).  I've had several of them and received one today as well.  I haven't seen any other gem jobs since they disappeared for the potential event.  I have several vikings and I refresh them a lot but Scavenger is the only gem job I've gotten on them.

Seems like it could be a mistake that Scavenger is still there then. If all the other gem quests are gone, and they do seem to be considering everyone's comments, then it could be that Scavenger somehow accidentally got left in the game. I don't see why they would leave only 1 gem quest and remove the rest unless they decided that they should be fair to nonmembers and leave them a gem quest as well since members still get to do Long Night Flight during events.
