I know a lot of people are not hoarders by any stretch of the word. It's easy to be tempted into spending gems, especially if you want a particular item and you finally got enough gems for it. One of the reasons it's so tempting, and one of the reasons you simply can't resist, spending gems is because the item you want is right there in front of you, waiting to be bought. The devs brought back gem-rewarding stable quests. If you happen to come across a stable chest and win a gem box from it, don't even check your backpack. This saves your gems for later, when a big ticket prize comes out, and because it isn't in your face, it's less tempting to open. Unless of course, you look in your bag. 
 

This won't work for everyone but it may reduce the temptation to spend. And hopefully for others, it may eliminate the temptation to spend. You'll end up saving a ton of gems as long as you don't open those boxes, or look in you bag (because then you'll see it in your inventory).

I hope that this also helps with money you earn outside of the game. If I don't spend any of it for a week, I might hopefully will have plenty to spend on books and dvds/ Blu rays and gift cards for Google Play or iTunes!

Welcome to my updated Signature. (With hopefully better images and links!)

 

My Viking, Firesome, is the legendary child of lightning and thunder, which is the Great God Thor's main element hence her steed being the mighty Skrill itself. She is destined in a prophecy to one day be the queen of Skrill, leading them into battle against Grimmel and his Evil Forces to unleash her full power of Lightning. And with her Skrill, Azyru by her side, almost nothing can take them down!

Just finished my story with 112 chapters! So happy!

 

 

 

 

I love you, Brooklyn from Gargoyles!

Biographies and Profiles of Firesome and Azyru:

 

Name: Firesome

Gender: Female

Eye Color: Hazel

Hair Color: Light Brown

Title: The Phantom Skrill Rider

 

Name: Azyru

Species: Skrill

Gender: Female

Color: Gray with Purple Highlights

Titan Wing Color: Black, white spines, and turquoise blue highlights

Viking Companion/Sister: Firesome

 

 

Bio (Firesome):

Firesome is a young girl who had been a slavegirl to Grimmel for ten years since she was stolen away from her family by him when Grimmel raided her home island, killing her parents. She finds her freedom after meeting a fierce young female Skrill who she sets free and calls Azyru after the two form a secret bond. They escape together outwitting Grimmel's Deathgrippers and going as far as they can away from their tormenter. While resting on a small island, Firesome receives a vision from her real birth father, the Mighty Thor, and he tells her to journey to an island of Dragon Riders.

After months of traveling and bonding, Firesome and her new bond sister dragon Azyru happen on the island of Berk, meeting Chief Hiccup who takes an interest in Firesome's strong connection, almost as strong as him and Toothless, and offers her to train dragons and ride alongside other students in their School of Dragons.

 

 

Bio (Azyru):

Azyru is a Skrill who once lived fierce and free, ruling the skies until Grimmel shot her down, the Deathgripper sedative knocking her out, and wakes in a cage. She befriends a strange young slavegirl that Azyru grows very attatched to after a time, and when Firesome breaks her free, she vows to protect her like a big sister. The two would fly together for a long time.

Woof

Telling someone (like me xD ) to not open gems isn't enough to make me not open up chests. Though it's a good advice nonetheless! Kudos to people where this will work for them!

And I mainly get my gems from gold battle event chests, so I'm always gonna open those (especially that I get dragon eggs from them sometimes).

 

So what I could say as an advice to make people hoard is:  Always think that there's gonna be a big event soon, that would require a huge amount of gems. Like, thousands of gems.

It could be a one-of-a-kind limited dragon, or a special flight suit, or they're gonna release a new expansion.

 

Though sadly I probs will spend all my gems on a new dragon egg

That endorphine boost when you spend and get something new is kinda addicting ( ;3;)

I get it. I'm a big time hoarder but I've been wanting a Speed Stinger and Fireworm Queen egg for a LONG time! Takes a lot of self discipline and willpower to not press that "buy" button!!! BUT I WANT THEM SO BAD! And of course, my little sister getting a Speed Stinger egg FROM A COIN-OPENING CHEST didn't help any. I know it came from a coin chest because I was right there. After that she got a stable from another coin chest... WHERE ARE MY EGGS DANGIT?!?!?!

Here is an idea

I recently just learned my lesson with this. If there is like a farm sale or something that isn't that big (like that bunny sale or the announcement of the W.D. mace) DON'T buy it. Usually an even bigger (and more expensive) oprotunity will be avaliable right after.
