i think we can all agree that gems are a bad system the rich get to have everything and the poor get nothing if the devs want to keep the gem system then make it easier to get gems such as  put gems in quests maybe every five quests you get ten gems that way pepole arent overpowerd with fiftey dragons at level 2 but arent at level 32 with one gronckle this way pepole would have no reason to hack the game or at least reduce the number of hackers no one likes a unfair game no one wants to have to play to win   if you support this comment #DownWithGems

Its actually pretty easy to

Its actually pretty easy to get gems. There are stable quests that give gems (Construction zone is prob the best since it appears every other mission for its slot, and boulder dragons work the best). Also the battle events every two hours u get a chance to win gems. And daily rewards also give u gems on the third and fifth day.

Without gems there would be less paying players which means less income for the company which means less improvements and updates and bug fixes.

i agree

yes stable quests are a good sourse of gem income but without another dragon new players cant do them untill the whispering death quest with dosent show up untill your around level 20 battle events only give you a chance to get gems if you get a reward at all and daily rewrd only give you 25 and 15 i think witch means for another dragon you would have to wait 18 weeks witch is not an option for impatient players like me and if there was no gem system more players would play less would hack more players would mean more pepole to pay money for coins or gems

(Not replying to the post directly above me)

Well, the way I see it, you have two choices; either a Gem system, or a very limited Non-member/Member system.

 

The limited Non-member/Member system is where in order for you to access certain places and do certain things, you would need to be a member in order to do so. An example would be Club Penguin, where you can't even buy decent clothing unless you're a member.

 

It may seem unfair, but that's the world we live in. Knowledge Adventure needs money to pay for the servers that run the game. They also have to pay the employees, whether or not they did anything, and they have to pay for the building they are in, as they are a company, and they need a place for people to work. Sadly, without money, this game wouldn't exist.

Wiggles the whispering death ate my subject

What would you have instead? The game has to make money somehow.

__________________

 

 

Hypergoof.

Seen here with a snow nadder and a statue Termite gave her because she couldn't sell it.

(Wiggles bit it's left arm off.)

Below is my profile pic made bigger to show the amazing detail

It's Hypergoof going berserk with a durian mace.

(Drawn by my amazing sister)

(She even drew the fur on the shoes)

            (My in game character)- A friendly young Viking who interacts better with dragons than with people. This is partly because although she now lives on Berk her family was originally from the Berserker tribe. When Dagger came to power Hypergoof, her sister and her parents were forced to flee as they were terrified of their new chief after he threatened to kill Hypergoof's parents for speaking out. The family found a new home on Berk. After working hard to get the Hooligans (what Hiccup's tribe was called in the books) to trust her (mostly) Hypergoof got a job working at a dragon rehabilitation center which is part of the reason she knows so many dragons. Hypergoof has a few problems. One, she is terrified of hot things. (A problem I myself have) She will not touch any stoker class dragons as a result. (With the exception of two individuals) She will still try to help a injured stoker as long as she doesn't have to touch it. Her other problem is also based on one of mine. I am Hypersensitive to sound and certain noises hurt me. Hypergoof has this too but in her the pain can cause her to go Berserk. One of the worst noises is whistling. She will attack anyone who does it near her. (Note this does not mean that I will fire troll those who's character whistles in game. It is a character trait for role playing and storytelling only.) Hypergoof also can't stand large crowds for too long. She will often retreat if things get too noisy. Hypergoof is a good fisher and farmer but a horrible fighter. (Unless she goes Berserk in which case she may get hurt but will do significant damage to her opponent.) She is generally friendly unless she gets stressed out in which case she becomes snappy. Most of her friends are dragons. Because of this Hypergoof has picked up dragoneese and speaks it quite fluently.

 

 

 

 

Littlebird (Hypergoof's sister) and Hypergoof's parents don't have much back story at the moment. None are in game.

 

 

Termite- Is one of Hypergoof's few human friends. (She is in game now as HypersFriendTermite. The chances of seeing her are low though. If seen she will probably be with Wiggles.) She is a woodworker hence the name. She didn't trust Hypergoof when they first met but soon found that they had a lot in common. She is the true trainer of Wiggles but often leaves him with Hypergoof when she must work on something.  Hypergoof and Termite like to take dragon food out into the wilderness ware they wait to see what shows up. A pass time they lovingly call dragonwaching.

 

 

 

 

Wiggles 

(wants to chew on Mildew's new chair just off camera)

(FUN FACT: Mildew is one of the only people Wiggles doesn't like)

            A young rambunctious whispering death with a sweet heart but a naughty mind. Hypergoof's friend Termite adopted him as a baby when his whole family was killed by dragon slayers. Unlike most of his species Wiggles could be described as... cuddly. He wants to be friends with everyone he meets and seems completely oblivious to his size and appearance. He simply does not understand that he is scary and is baffled that some people won't play with him or give him a hug. His best friend growing up was Termite's mutt of a dog Drool, and Wiggles learned the odd habit of waging his tail from his canine friend. Most dignified dragons (especially whispering deaths) are appalled by the behavior but no amount of laughing at Wiggles or begging him to stop for the sake of dignity will change anything. Wiggles simply doesn't care. All that matters to him is how much fun he's having. He will even allow himself to be dressed up for snoggletog and will parade around in the Jingle bells and antlers with pride. (As seen here.) Wiggles is an all around charming and sweet creacher but he is not without flaws. He can not be left alone for more than five minutes or else he will chew on something, especially furniture. Usually damaging it beyond repair. He can not be taken to a marketplace because the concept that Termite "hasn't bought that yet and so he shouldn't eat it" is something he can not seem to grasp. Nore is the one that "That doesn't belong to us!" Termite has taken to carrying a bag of dried mutton strips (Mutton is Wiggles's favorite) to redirect the serpent's attention if she catches him with the look in his eyes that she learned to recognize as his "I'm going to chew on that" face. Despite her best efforts Wiggles is a hand full and Termite often leaves him with Hypergoof if she has to go do some woodworking. Wiggles thinks of Termite as his mother but he thinks of Hypergoof as a friend and enjoys playing with her. Hypergoof shows no fear towards him at all and will even let Wiggles hug her if he asks permission first. (Hypergoof does not like being touched without warning but will happily accept a hug from a friend.) Interestingly Hypergoof found that Wiggles is a very good racer despite his poor eyesight.

 

 

 

Cuteseepie

(Relaxing at home)

          The first dragon Hypergoof ever rescued and one of her closest friends. He is a Pink and Blue deadly nadder. When he was a hatchling his curiosity got the better of him. He wandered away from his nest in the dead of winter and found himself lost in a blizzard which would have been the end of him if he hadn't stumbled onto the front lawn of Hypergoof's house. His crys alerted the family who quickly took him in out of the cold and thus saved his life. Cuteseepie and Hypergoof have been friends ever since. Cuteseepie has a mellow gentle nature broken up occasionally for excitement at an adventure. He will defend Hypergoof or if need be prevent her from attacking someone who whistled. His level headedness balances out against Hypergoof's goofyness rather nicely. 

 

 

 

Ziggy

(Showing off again)

          A skrill that Hypergoof found injured while dragon watching. Her success in helping him helped her get the job she currently has and also built up a friendship between Hypergoof and Ziggy. It probably helped that Ziggy is not a very old skrill, only having just left his parents, before somehow getting hurt. Much like a cat Ziggy tries to be more dignified than he really is. One moment showing off his impressive wingspan with a majestic yawn and the next he's off chaiseing a light or a leaf when he thinks no one is looking. He often roles his eyes when Hypergoof playfully teases him by saying his name in a funny pitch or calling him "The Zigster" but a poorly hidden grin betrays the fact that he doesn't mind as much as he lets on. Ziggy is decently friendly to most people who don't insult his dignity (only his close friends are allowed to do that) but he is still technically a wild skrill. He spends most of his time off chaising storms and doing whatever else wild skrills do only he stops by every once in a while to visit Hypergoof. Manny people wonder why he keeps coming back as he always seems more annoyed with Hypergoof than anything but it is just a mask. A false front. He secretly really enjoys her company. In fact perhaps Hypergoof's absurdity amuses him. FUN FACT: Before meeting Ziggy it was Hypergoof's life dream to see a live skrill. (Partly her Berserker heritage) For her meeting Ziggy was akin to meeting a celebrity. Of course things got more normal between them as they got to know each other but Hypergoof is still pretty darn proud that a skrill let her be his friend.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Causemoe

(Knows the owner of this house hates it when he sits there)

           A young flightmare who was one of Ziggy's friends then also became Hypergoof's friend when Ziggy brought him to Berk. Unlike Ziggy though, Causemoe decided that he liked Berk and the school so much that he would stay. He is a complete showoff and loves to be the center of attention. He can get huffy if he finds someone who does one of his favorite things better than him. He especially hates it that Wanda can glow brighter than him. She often tones down her glow when she's near him to spare his feelings.

 

 

 

 

 

Wanda

(Knows the best places for the best view)

         As mentioned before, Hypergoof is scared of stoker class dragons. When approached by a fireworm her normal reaction is to flip out as if the little dragon was a bee. Wanda however is an exception to this rule and not only is she a fireworm but she is a fireworm queen. Hypergoof once got herself lost in a snowstorm and was found by one of Wanda's workers unconscious and soon to freeze if something wasn't done. Wanda is a very empathetic dragon. Even though she didn't trust humans she didn't want to see a helpless creacher d.ie in such a way. She took Hypergoof into her nest to warm up. Hypergoof was stuck there for several days not knowing which way was home until Cuteseepie tracked her down by scent and took her back to the village. During Hypergoof's time in the nest Wanda decided she liked this little human. Hypergoof was terrified of most of Wanda's children and since Wanda didn't understand Norse yet Hypergoof communicated her unease by sticking as close to the fireworm queen as she would allow. Purposely mimicking the bodylanguig of a scared puppy to get her point across. Wanda was sympathetic of Hypergoof's fear and allowed the little human to stay near. Keeping the meaner members of her family at bay until Cuteseepie could find the lost viking. Wanda was a bit suprized to find that a dragon was the one looking for the girl. She has a healthy dose of curiosity in her and often visits Berk for "research purposes" as she calls it. Wanda is curious about humans and wants to learn about them. Hypergoof is grateful to Wanda for her kindness and will come when she calls. Something Wanda finds amusing but also gives her an easy target to study. Personalitywise Wanda is the type of person one might have a fancy tea party with. She is every bit a queen but is also an intellectual with a kind heart. She hangs around Berk to study the uneeq human and dragon interactions there. Seeking how to possibly spread that type of friendship for the good of dragon kind.

 

 

 

 

 

Burpetta

(Wonders if she'd get in trouble for blasting me into the water behind the camera)

          A pink thunderdrum who someone in the dragon rehab center found as a baby then dumped on Hypergoof since no one wanted to deal with the hatchling. Their relationship started out terribly due to Hypergoof's sound sensitivity. In the beginning Hypergoof could barely stand Burpetta but eventually the dragon realized that her loudness has hurting the human and learned to be more gentle with Hypergoof's delicate ears. Sometimes Burpetta can be careless but she never means any harm and will correct her behavior when she eventually realizes she did wrong. She is kind by nature but loves a bit of mischief now and then. She also has a bit of the stubbornness common in her breed. Once she sets her mind to something it is difficult to convince her otherwise.

 

 

 

 

Chomp

(Sleeping like the baby he is)

            A screaming death. He is the baby of the group despite being the biggest member of it. When Alven found out that one of the eggs he'd planted under Berk had hatched a screaming death he decided he wanted such a beast for himself. He knew he couldn't capture the adult so he decided to get his hands on a hatchling. He captured a bunch of the successful breeding pair's family members in the hopes that more of them would carry the incredibly rare screaming death gene. The captive dragons were force bread and after many many attempts Alven got what he wanted. He didn't get to keep it though as a couple Hooligans who had snuck into Alven's hideout looking for helpful info about future plans found the baby screaming death instead. They took it back to Berk to figure out what to do with it. Several people wanted to kill the little guy before he could grow into an island eater but Hypergoof over heard and was horrified. She knew what it felt like to be disliked for what she was rather than who she was. Some people didn't trust her because she was a Berserker. She knew it wasn't fair to judge someone that way. She stole Chomp and (With Wiggles and Termite's permission) hid him down Wiggles's tunnels. Wiggles didn't mind and enjoyed having a roommate to play with. Chomp stayed there unknown until his loudness and the sheer amount of food being brought down there gave him away. By then though he was old enough that he had enough personality to proved him a gentle giant rather than a monster and he was allowed to stay. He is not at all a full grown screaming death and has the personality of a giant toddler. He is surprisingly gentle especially considering his breed. He is so mild tempered that he will stare blankly at fire trolls wondering what they are doing. He will only engage if he thinks it's a game. Despite his gentleness his size and strength can be a problem. He will occasionally knock someone over with his tail by accident then stare at them in confusion not smart enough to understand why the person fell but knowing it was still somehow his fault. When other screaming deaths were allowed into the school Chomp was thrilled to have playmates his size. Chomp is very much still a baby mindwise. He is very food oreeinted and can be prompted to do nearly anything for a snack. It's a very good thing he doesn't consider humans food. It's hard to imagine that he could ever be related to the screaming death who once tried to eat Berk but he is. The danjoris one happens to be his somewhat distant uncle. Fun fact: Hypergoof often refers to Chomp's uncle as Mr. Island munch and insists that she will continue to do so until his actual name is found out or created.

 

 

 

 

 

Punaluu

(LOVES sand)

(I really shouldn't be suprized)

            A female sand wraith. Punaluu comes from a subspeasys of sand wraith on a volcanic island with black sand. (Like the beach Punaluu is named after.) As such they adapted to the environment by becoming black. A side affect of this is that now the subspeacys looks even more like a nightfurry than the normal ones. Some money hungry showmen found out about them and decided to make a quick buck. They stoll an egg from this island and paraded the black hatchling around claiming it to be a nightfurry. This charade ended when they made the mistake of bringing their show to Berk. Seeing that the dragon was being treated badly the Hooligans took the baby from the showmen and took it to the dragon rehabilitation center for treatment for whip wounds and malnutrition. Punaluu is much healthier now and is a happy energetic young sand wraith. One problem she has is that her dark coloring is only designed for a certain type of area and she can not camouflage most of the time because of it. Not being able to hide occasionally gives her episodes of anxiety but a quick trip to a beach ushuly fixes it. She is very shy around strangers but around those she knows she is a complete goof. She can also be a bit naughty. Sometimes she feels out of place like she doesn't belong and so interacts well with Hypergoof who doesn't fit in all that well ether.

if the gem system was removed all gem items would be coins so the system would be the pretty much the same  rich pepole buy coins and the poor pepole do quests but without the gems poor pepole get dragons too 

and pepole who spent a lot of money for gems would get coins so 100 gems is 10000 coins prices for items would change too so its still hard to get dragons but possible

Why would anyone bother buying coins? Almost everything gives you coins. If they switched it to coins then they would have to remove most of the ways to get the coins in order for people to be pushed to buy them. They'd just become the same thing the gems are only EVERYTHING would cost them.

Actually getting gems is alot easier than it used to be. When I first started playing in November 2014 the only free way to get gems was daily bonuses and completing offers/watching videos. Now you can do battles and maybe get gems as reward and do stable quests. Gronkles are available for coins once you reach a certain UDT number. They are rather cheap. If you have 3 gronkles you get 100% success rate on the Construction Zone stable quest. After that is completed all you have to do is trash the eel one that comes up and then send them out on the Construction Zone quest again. There's also a gem box in the mystery stable that gives you 300 gems. Granted, you have to buy the stable first but you get the gems back that you spent on it. You can only open the gem box once per viking account no matter how many mystery stables you have. I know for new players it is a bit tough to get started collecting gems but with h.ard work and determination you can do it. The game has to have a way to make money and they do this by selling gem packages, game cards, and memberships.

I agree with most of you. I

I agree with most of you. I think this game is very fair and reasonable as far as how you can get gems and also the $/gem ratio. My comparison is the other HTTYD game - ROB. I do play this game as well, but am constantly having to send real money on it to advance in any sort of timely fashion. Instead, in SOD I haven't had to buy gems since last Christmas. I actually bought some a few times anyway, just to be supportive.

The stable quests are the way to go. At worst, you would get 10 gems every 2 hours, approx (including time discarding the eel quest). 25 gems seems to be more typical. All you need is 3 boulder class dragons. You get a free Whispering Death eventually, you can pick a gronckle as a starter, you can get a gronckle for coins and I think the Snafflefang? is available for coins. You just need to work a little and save up.

 

Oh, and that glitch exploiting opening any boxes was supposed to be fixed a month or two ago.

But it's pretty easy to get

But it's pretty easy to get gems. As people here have said, stable quest, daily rewards etc. If gems are taken out then everything is easy to get, no one pays real money, and the game dies from lack of funding within a few months. I think having a little patience for stable quests and logging on once a day is the best option for you, keep in mind the game developers don't owe you anything if you aren't paying anything for their services. Honestly, the fact that we can play the game for free with basically no drawbacks is very generous.

Make way for the ex-economics student

Let’s do this sensibly.

Coins are an accessible, cheap mean of trade in the game. Nearly everything you do gives the reward of coins.

Gems are a premium currency. It’s like comparing USD to Monopoly money; one has a lot of worth, the other is literally a toy. They can only be achieved through dedication; stable quests, logging in consecutive days, battles, etc. There are actually more ways to earn gems than earn coins, but they are given in smaller amounts.

If you want to get them quicker, then you can do small tasks like the ad offers or buy them with real money- this generates income for Jumpstart both ways. By advertising for others, they get paid. By you purchasing them in bulk, they get paid.

Now remove gems entirely from the game. They now don’t exist. Instantly, the value of coins plummet. According to the game, 1 gem=10 coins, but removing gems would push it up dramatically. For the sake of simplicity, let’s estimate that increase to be double, making a gem worth 20 coins. Now things that cost gems i.e. dragon eggs, would be selling at several thousand to tens of thousands.

If you play mini games constantly for an hour each day such as alchemy swap, you could earn up to a thousand each day. Now imagine if you were saving up for a Stormcutter, 800 non-member. That’s 8'000 coins with gems in the game, but 16’000 without. It would take over a fortnight to save up for that, excluding the cost of bait for fishing, animal feed, crop seeds and whatever else you might buy while playing. It would be taxing and unrealistic to expect children to dedicate that much time to the game.

Now back to the financial impacts. Presuming they don’t put up coins to buy in replacement to gems, they have already lost one major income source. Say they kept the advertisement but it didn’t reward you, the income from that would drop as well. Now since Jumpstart makes several games, it probably wouldn’t affect the entire company dramatically, but in the SoD department, there would be anarchy.

They would likely start losing money, or at the least have to reduce the pay given to the staff. Production and progress on the game would grind to a halt, it wouldn’t go anywhere and eventually they would have to either pause the game, or close it down.

That was a worst-case-outcome.

 

INSTEAD

Something that could be done to ease the unbalance between members and non-members, gem prices could reduce by a small margin. Basic things like farm decorations could all be switched over to coins. Low-performing or unpopular dragon eggs could have a reduced price, say taking half of the 500 gem dragons down to 400 or 300. Give better ways of earning gems, like more gem rewards for stable quests.

 

Do you understand the purpose of gems better now?

Marceline is actually my sisters bombay cat. We joke about how she's a rough-edged street cat and comes home some nights with new scrapes and scratches. Although since moving to a bigger city, she's lost her high-end status and has angered the much braver and bigger local birds(at least 8). We don't know how, or exactly when it started, but they have something to say to her.

Feel free to send me art of Marceline in different dragon forms.  No matter the quality, I will put it up.

What are you even talking about? What are you basing your statement on? How do the 'rich' have a benefit over the 'poor'? Please explain because I don't really see it. I'm not a member or anything, and I can accumulate enough gems for the things I want.

 

I don't understand the rest of your post at all.

I agree with Varku. I can't

I agree with Varku.

I can't see why people love to complain about gems. They are so easy to come by. You can farm the bottom left stable quest, farm with fake emails, or just watch 15 second vids over and over again, not to mention battle chests and the daily prize. YOU CAN GET LIKE 200 GEMS A DAY IF YOU FARM THE QUEST AND DO A FEW BATTLES! That is what i did to get gems. And if this is not generous, i don't know what is.

Welcome to Slytherin!

 

 

 

We are not evil,

 

we just want to excel.

 

 

Now, there are a few things you should know about Slytherin – and a few you should forget. Firstly, let’s dispel a few myths. You might have heard rumours about Slytherin house – that we’re all into the Dark Arts, and will only talk to you if your great-grandfather was a famous wizard, and rubbish like that. Well, you don’t want to believe everything you hear from competing houses. I’m not denying that we’ve produced our share of Dark wizards, but so have the other three houses – they just don’t like admitting it. And yes, we have traditionally tended to take students who come from long lines of witches and wizards, but nowadays you’ll find plenty of people in Slytherin house who have at least one Muggle parent.


Here’s a little-known fact that the other three houses don’t bring up much: Merlin was a Slytherin. Yes, Merlin himself, the most famous wizard in history! He learned all he knew in this very house! Do you want to follow in the footsteps of Merlin? Or would you rather sit at the old desk of that illustrious ex-Hufflepuff, Eglantine Puffett, inventor of the Self-Soaping Dishcloth?
I didn’t think so.

But that’s enough about what we’re not. Let’s talk about what we are, which is the coolest and edgiest house in this school. We play to win, because we care about the honour and traditions of Slytherin.

We also get respect from our fellow students. Yes, some of that respect might be tinged with fear, because of our Dark reputation, but you know what? It can be fun, having a reputation for walking on the wild side. Chuck out a few hints that you’ve got access to a whole library of curses, and see whether anyone feels like nicking your pencil case.

But we’re not bad people. We’re like our emblem, the snake: sleek, powerful, and frequently misunderstood.

For instance, we Slytherins look after our own – which is more than you can say for Ravenclaw. Apart from being the biggest bunch of swots you ever met, Ravenclaws are famous for clambering over each other to get good marks, whereas we Slytherins are brothers. The corridors of Hogwarts can throw up surprises for the unwary, and you’ll be glad you’ve got the Serpents on your side as you move around the school. As far as we’re concerned, once you’ve become a snake, you’re one of ours – one of the elite.

Because you know what Salazar Slytherin looked for in his chosen students? The seeds of greatness.You’ve been chosen by this house because you’ve got the potential to be great, in the true sense of the word. All right, you might see a couple of people hanging around the common room whom you might not think are destined for anything special. Well, keep that to yourself. If the Sorting Hat put them in here, there’s something great about them, and don’t you forget it.

And talking of people who aren’t destined for greatness, I haven’t mentioned the Gryffindors. Now, a lot of people say that Slytherins and Gryffindors represent two sides of the same coin. Personally, I think Gryffindors are nothing more than wannabe Slytherins. Mind you, some people say that Salazar Slytherin and Godric Gryffindor prized the same kinds of students, so perhaps we are more similar than we like to think. But that doesn’t mean that we cosy up with Gryffindors. They like beating us only slightly less than we like beating them.

A few more things you might need to know: our house ghost is the Bloody Baron. If you get on the right side of him he’ll sometimes agree to frighten people for you. Just don’t ask him how he got bloodstained; he doesn’t like it.

The password to the common room changes every fortnight. Keep an eye on the noticeboard. Never bring anyone from another house into our common room or tell them our password. No outsider has entered it for more than seven centuries.

Well, I think that’s all for now. I’m sure you’ll like our dormitories. We sleep in ancient four-posters with green silk hangings, and bedspreads embroidered with silver thread. Medieval tapestries depicting the adventures of famous Slytherins cover the walls, and silver lanterns hang from the ceilings. You’ll sleep well; it’s very soothing, listening to the lake water lapping against the windows at night.

By J.K. Rowling

See? Slytherin has always been the elite

 

To Gryffindors:

Your time is coming to an end, Slytherin will trump you! Get your wands ready, because we are coming!

I think I don't have to write anything anymore, I totally agree with all these people saying that getting gems is pretty easy even without membership and also the game needs money to keep running so yeah, no offense but the gems must stay there.
