A question about gem-rewarding stable quests... I might be in a bit of a pickle..
...I have no stable room left, and I'm afraid of messing something up if I happen to earn a dragon in an expansion pack in the way of training an already adult dragon, like how it worked with the Groncicle in Ice Storm Island, if I don't have a stable spot open at the time. I also have a few lovely dragons waiting to be hatched. =/
I was curious... I've heard that the stable quest Construction Zone is still around, but takes longer to get to by replacing the quests. Yet, I've been replacing them for... roughly 3 hours now, almost constantly, (Not always after ten minutes, but I've been trying to do it as quickly as I could manage.) and I haven't seen Construction Zone at all, yet seen some of the same other quests once or twice over. Does Construction Zone still exist? or is it just gone, now? That was a very good way to fairly earn gems for everyone. I hope it's not gone.
Also, I was wondering, what are the other stable quests that award gems that I have seen mentioned? Can anyone give me any info on them, please? Such as how long it takes to get to them, how hard they are, or what are good dragons to use for them to get a victory?
Thanks for reading, Vikings. <3
I haven't seen Construction Zone in weeks. Dare I say a month? Has anyone encountered it?
The other slots do offer gem quests. Lab Assistant (top left) seems to be very rare. Top middle missions like The Long Patrol seem to be a bit more common. Gem quests tend to spawn more often in the top right for me, but the chances to win are usually... ugh.
Though I've not had much luck though. I keep failing missions that take an eternity. aaaa
Well, about the expansion: Don't worry! The dragons you get from expansions will wait for a new stable, if you get them. Once you bought a new stable, they are already in xD
I have also had a very hard time finding Construction Zone in the last month - maybe.. once? Twice at most? I've given up refreshing to be honest, until I get all of my dragon levels maxxed out. Lab Assistant and Loki's Maze (Gas dragons are best, from memory?) are appearing (slightly) more frequently than Construction Zone for me now, so I'd say refresh those slots instead. Also, keep battling! :) Majority of my stables have come from gold battle chests. :) And if you haven't yet got the Mystery Stable, buy it for 300 gems and you'll find a hidden chest with 300 gems inside (only works once).

here is a link to all known quests. it a work in progress so as new quests are added they are added there as well. it is a community wide project so if you have any information to add just leave a note and the project manager will add the information unless you are capable of adding it yourself.
this should answer most of your question. if you have any other, dont hesitate to ask.
What everyone else said ^^
I also haven't seen Construction Zone for awhile. I got it twice right after they added back more quests to that slot and then nothing. I have always seemed jinxed when replacing quests, in that I only ever get the same few quests show up when I know there are a ton of other possible quests available for that slot. It kind of stinks for me because my goal is leveling up all my dragons and I keep getting the same quests geared toward dragons I have already leveled. I don't know if I just have bad luck (entirely possible!) or the quests really aren't as random as they make them sound like ...
I kind of feel a little whiney - I totally understand it wasn't supposed to be that easy to get gem quests with Construction Zone and remember in the beginning when that slot initially had more quests , but now it seems a bit too hard?
Like Brasa said, it DID show up for a while after the patch, and then it stopped appearing in general after about a week. I really feel like it's no longer included in the rotation. I mainly work from home and have plenty time and opportunity to refresh my quests all day long (bless dual-screen) and I haven't seen it in over a month.
All I use the slot for now is the Love Love Love quest, which takes 30 minutes to complete so it's nice to level dragons with it.
Maybe I'm just lucky, but I've gotten a lot of gem and titan rune quests. But they're mostly Loki's maze and lab assistant. I actually haven't seen construction zone in a while... I think a good way to earn gems is with battle events. There's a really high change of getting them in all the 3 chests. They happen every two hours, and if you win gold, you have a chance of getting 25-200 gems. It's very unlikely that you'll get large gem amounts, but I think there's a rather high chance of getting some gems with this method.
The best dragon to use in my oppinion is the scauldron, because it can shoot from really far away, has a lot of health, recharges in half a second, and has a lot of shots. Other really good dragons are: Screaming deaths, hobblegrunts, and prickleboogles. If you don't have any of these, I think razorwhips, deadly nadders, and whispering deaths are supposed to be quite good too. I hope you found this helpful :)
Well, for myself, this might go back to the poor luck thing, but I get gold in the battles most of the time, but usually get something very unhelpful. Like a perch from a gold box or 800 coins (I have like 200K and nothing much to spend them on). Seems there was a time when I had greater chances of getting gems... so again - luck or Sod made it more difficult? (But I get to level up my dragons with battle events so it makes it worth playing them)
well I'm glad someone is getting gem quests :)
I suppose we should be happy that we even have the opportunity for gem quests!
