I wanted to give a big thank you to the devs for including gems and Thawfest mystery chests as prizes in this year's Thawfest. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the first day of the event. I hope this will be a trend that will continue in future events because the gems and mystery chests were among my favorite prizes, along with the dragon(of course XD)and the farm and hideout decorations.

The greatest treasures are not gold,

nor jewels, nor works of art.

They cannot be held in your hands-

They're held within your heart.

For worldly things will fade away

As seasons come and go.

But the treasure of true friendship

Will never lose its glow.

(Poem from the Disney movie Tinkerbell and the Lost Treasure)

About Me:

 

The first and most important thing you should know about me is that I'm one of Jehovah's Witnesses. I enjoy studying the Bible and learning from it. I live by Bible standards and strive to apply Bible principles in my life everyday. Of course, I'm not perfect and would never claim to be. However, when I make a mistake I do my best to learn from it and then do my best not to repeat it. I apologize when neccessary and accept correction where it's needed. I happily talk about my religion and beliefs with others but I don't force it on them. If they aren't interested or tell me they don't want to talk about it, I respect that.

For more information on Jehovah's Witnesses, for answers to your Bible-based questions, or for information on a varity of topics, some of which  include: animals, countries, how to deal with bullies, how to have a happy family life, how to make real friends, and depression, please visit jw.org.

Yes... and no?

 As someone who is reluctant to spend gems on randomised loot boxes, I love the mix of mystery chests and event-prize items as it gives me a few things I will definitely get while also giving me a shot at the other cool event stuff - or a medal boost if I don't want whatever comes out of them. I am also very happy that you get both hairstyles, rather than having a "boy" hairstyle and a "girl" hairstyle.

 

 Gems, though. I don't wanna be all "gEms are so eAsY to gEt it'S woRtHleSs" because getting more free gems is never inherently bad, but considering you get 50g a week just for logging on every day, they will throw out 100g as a thanks-for-bearing-with-us after a bit of server trouble, and the mystery chests would cost 110g, getting 80g for all the work needed to get to 14,000 medals seems... underwhelming. Even the dragon is only 3000 medals more and they normally cost around 1000g. 80g doesn't feel like a top-tier prize.

 

 It would have made more sense to me if the gem prizes were at the lower end of the scale and the chests (actually worth more!) were at the upper end, you know? Also I could have spent the gems on extra chickens at the beginning of the event and made my life easier when the quest board vanished.

I completely agree

Exactly this I feel like the gems you are able to get for free from logging in, events or Dragon tactics, etc you get so Little Gems that you can't actually do much with them Saddles are anywhere from 100 gems to 250, paints for your dragons are 90  to 100 gems and God forbid you want to get a dragon egg which at the lowest price is 200 gems in total. We got 100 gems from this event if you finish it all the way through that's not even enough to buy a dragon egg personally, I feel like the game has a huge issue with how gems are distributed and priced and it's just much more appealing to younger kids to buy the gems instead of working for them
