Hello! 

I am currently saving up my gems but I am not sure what to buy first! My options are:

buy a new stable because I have a baby dragon waiting and two new eggs to hatch 

OR

buy an expansion pack because I have completed all of the quests.

what would you guys recommend? And do you have any tips on how to earn gems fast?

Thank you! :)

Thumbtack, bring back that subject!

Hi there!
Well, normally I'd suggest that you'd go for the expansion, but since you get a free dragon at the end of it, if you're short on stables you'd be stuck with more dragons you couldn't be able to make active until you gather enough currency to purchase one. That being said, if you have enough udt points you'll be able to purchase a boulder stable with coins. Gems can be easily gained in various ways, the most immediate being daily log in and battles, along with a few stable quests which require a reasonable time to be completed. The downside of stable quests is that some require specific dragons, but if you're lucky enough to have the dragon needed and if it's over a certain level the chances of winning increase considerably. Whichever way you're going to follow, I wish you luck!!

Oh, there it is. Silly old universe. The more I save it the more it needs saving. It’s a treadmill.

Yes, yes I know they’ll get it all wrong without me.

Well, I suppose….one more lifetime won’t kill anyone. Well, except me.

You wait a moment, Doctor. Let’s get it right. I’ve got a few things to say to you. Basic stuff first.

Never be cruel, never be cowardly. And never ever eat pears! Remember – hate is always foolish…and love, is always wise.

Always try, to be nice and never fail to be kind. Oh, and….and you mustn’t tell anyone your name. No-one would understand it anyway.

Except….children. Children can hear it. Sometimes – if their hearts are in the right place, and the stars are too. Children can hear your name.

But nobody else. Nobody else. Ever.

Laugh hard. Run fast. Be kind.

Doctor – I let you go.

Heyo. Hillevi here, but you may call me Hill for short, if you like.

 

For my italian fellows no, I have nothing to do with the youtuber Favij. I added the last letter to my name because otherwise the game wouldn't accept it, realising only later that I might be mistaken for a fan. Luckily a while ago I found a solution to this problem in-game, but my forum account is older. So, yeah... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

 

 

Random stuff about me:

 

 

-I'm a Hufflepuff

 

-I'm probably older than most of you

 

-I'm a cat lady

 

-Also obsessed with sunflowers!!

 

-I'm an incredibly introverted person

 

-I cried like a baby watching Coco by Pixar

 

-I'm studying Dutch and currently living between Italy and the Netherlands

 

-I love listening to music. My favourite genre goes from Disney songs to Disturbed, but I also love the Cranberries, MIKA, Panic! At the Disco, Skillet, Starset, Imagine Dragons and Thousands Foot Krutch.

 

Out of HTTYD, I love Fullmetal Alchemist, Doctor Who, Gravity Falls, Steven Universe, Harry Potter and Warrior Cats (still not over Yellowfang).

In game I'm simply known as Hillevi (Hil‧le‧vi), you might see me in the wilderness chilling on the platform or, when I'm in the right mood, the racing lobby. Please note that any jokes hinting to Levi from Attack of Titan won't be taken well unless you like to be fired at with no mercy.

 

 

 

 

I do NOT take clan or friends requests anymore, sorry ^^'

I'm good in my own little clan, couldn't care less about the annual tournament and having a stable friendship with anyone is not really my thing...

 

 

BEWARE, some drawings of mine coming in hot!

More boring stuff no one wants to know, coming soon on this signature!

Hmmm...

So I'd probably go for the expansion, since as Hillevij said, you will be able to buy the boulder stable with Coins once you have enough UDT points.

That said it really depends on what's more important to you at the moment. Are you more interested in quests? Or hatching your new baby dragons?

Now, one thing I have discovered is that if you buy the Mystery stable for 300 gems (I think that's how much it is), there is a secret treasure chest inside that holds 300 gems, which you can then use on whatever you want. So you basically get the gems back and can spend them on something else or save them for an expansion. :)

As for collecting gems, other than the daily log in, I noticed that winning in Dragon Tactics often gives gems as rewards from the chests when you solve the quizz.

A friend of mine also told me that you can use the same account both on PC and your Phone, so you can use your phone to watch adds in exchange for gems or complete offers.

Pardon me if I made a mistake in any of this info, I myself have been playing for only 2 months or so, but that's what I have figured out so far. :)

Hi there, Tilly05!

Hey there! 

I've only been playing for about 5 months, but I've got a few things that might help. I am in the exact same position as you are now, trying to get gems for expansion packs. It can get tiring XD. 

A few things I do to get gems are: battle events (always a chance that your luck might not fall on gems), watch videos (if you need help about these pm me and I'll be happy to help!), and stable quests. I also log in daily to get the gem rewards. For us non-members it can be hard to get gems sometimes, but we'll get there!

I'd suggest the expansion pack, because you get free dragons. You can buy a boulder stable with coins (I did so) and keep saving for the expansions. :D 

Hope this helped!

I'd appreciate it if you just stopped hacking, because SoD is a game that's supposed to be fun. There's nothing fun at getting frustrated in TRR when there's a hacker flying through walls and beating the rest by a minute. I'm one of the younger SoD players, so it's not fun for me to see how older & younger people hack on the game. It's not right. So please, if you're a hacker stop reading my siggy. Thanks, I appreciate it. ( If you're not a hacker, go right on and read it! :D ) 

                                              Things You'll see on my Siggy: 

                                              1. Things about me on SoD 

                                              2. About me in real life

                                              3. Random gifs and memes I like (Httyd) 

                                              4. Art drawn by others! 

                   5. A single screenie I have posted. I want to post more soon, though. 

Name on SoD: EllaAcademyOfBerk 

Age: I don't really have an age for my viking...

Dragons

Watershout - Sandwraith - Tidal Class

Hookfire - Monstrous Nightmare - Stoker Class

Firefly - Deadly Nadder - Tracker Class (Main Dragon)

Iceshear - Hideous Zippleback - Mystery Class

Burst - Sweet Death - Mystery Class

Wingblast - Armorwing - Mystery Class

Icestorm - Groncicle - Boulder Class

Vallhalla - Eruptadon - Boulder Class 

Caverazor - Whispering Death - Boulder Class

Bam - Thunderdrum - Tidal Class

If you're wondering where Bam's name came from, it's from the Defenders of Berk series. The gang finds 3 baby Thunderdrums, and they name them Bing, Bam, and Lloyd. Well, it's actually Bing, Bam, and Boom, but I prefer saying it how Tuffnut said it. So I agree with Tuff that the purple baby Thunderdrum's name is Lloyd. XD

Expansions Completed: Battle for The Edge & Icestorm Island 

Favorite Places to Be in-game: School of Dragons, the Lookout, and the Training Grounds. 

Membership: No, but I wish I was a member. 

Friend Code: Pm me on the forum or find me on SoD. I am on often. 

Best Pal on SoD: xOTillyOx Tilly's such an awesome friend, and I'm really very happy we met on the forums <3 :)

Personality Type: Logician. INTP-T (Introverted, Intuitive, Thinking, Prospecting, and Turbulent.)

Favorite Dragon(s): Scauldron & Night Fury. (I also like Tide Gliders and Typhoomerangs.) 

Favorite Movies & TV Shows: How to Train Your Dragon 1, 2, 3. (The first one is the best in my opinion, but they are all masterpieces.) Lego Ninjago Masters of Spinjitzu. Dragons: Race to The Edge. Dragons: Riders & Defenders of Berk. (You are free to talk to me about any of these shows...but if you do: warning, I may ramble on about them XD)

I am currently working on more descriptive gifs, which are going to be personalized by me. But for now, these look pretty cool. Full credit goes to whoever made them, they're brilliant!

 

 

Here's a little about me, but not on a list. :D

As I mentioned above, I am a 12 year old that lives in the US. I am a pretty open, joyful person, so if you ever need anyone to talk to or just hang out with, I'm your girl! I love anything that has white chocolate, dragons, horses, or Httyd involved. Somethings I don't like are when people accuse me of hacking on SoD, which I am against. I absolutely CANNOT stand people who hack in SoD. It's plain wrong, in my opinion. Another thing I hate is math. I am in 7th grade, moving onto 8th next year. I'm going to start algebra then, and I'm not very excited about it. I know this might sound a bit off, but I'd honestly give anything in the world to live at Berk. Sure, the riders are in life-or-death situations almost daily, but it would be incredible to have my own dragon and see Berk with my own eyes. (Massive Httyd fan if you have not noticed.) 

 

This is art by others drawn for me by request. Thank you guys for being awesome! <3

Firefly, my Deadly Nadder. Done by the awesome artist; Root. :) Thanks again! 

Firefly, my Deadly Nadder. Done by the amazing artist; Lady fighter. Thank you so much! <3

My Sandwraith, Watershout. Done by the absolutley incredible; Lady fighter! You're awesome! <3

This is my Viking, Ella. She was drawn by Mimu. Thanks again! 

 

Screenshot! :D This is me and my brother. Incase the name is too pixely, he's called DagurTheDerganged. (Yes, it is misspelled.) He's 5 years old though, so I really wouldn't suggest friending him. (Don't tell him I said that XD) His Flightmare is named Strike, since his favorite dragon class is the Strike class. If you do send a chat / talk to him in-game, I will be the one to answer. Thanks! 

Location of screenie: The Lookout. Pepole in it: EllaAcademyOfBerk & DagurTheDerganged. <3

Why, this is a surpise! Thank you for getting all the way through my very disorganized siggy. It will be more organized in the future, as I'll have tons of time on my hands during the Summer vacation. If you need me / need a friend to talk to, pm me or friend me. Alright well, see ya Viking! :D <3
