Ways to Get Gems in Dragon City:


In Dragon City, there are various ways to get gems. I have mentioned 11 ways including Free methods, purchasing gems with real money, reaching levels, or playing mini-games.

Brief Intro about the game:

Dragon City is a fun, interesting, and evolving game. If you love battle games this is a great choice personally I just get involved with quest battle games. 

For newbies, in order to progress and unlock more features, you need “Gems” in this game.

When I am playing I always look for ways to increase gems to unlock more buildings, upgrade food storage, grow my dragons and free some caged dragons. 

With Gems you can do a lot, these are something’s that I prefer. Gems are shown as purple gem numbers on top of the bar. 

You can collect these gems either through real money by purchasing or using free methods by playing.



This is my list of methods on how to get gems in dragon city? Both paid and free methods will be discussed.

Paid Methods:

1) By buying gem packs with real money.

The first one on my list would be to buy gems. I know most of you are looking for free methods and that's good. It's all up to you if you want to spend real money or not, later in the post I will discuss how to get gems in dragon city with free methods.

But I am mentioning this because I have personally bought gems with real money to check whether it helps boost the gaming experience. You can see the screenshot below of my bought “Gems chest box “ in dragon city:

As you can see I got about 180 gems and my experience says if you buy gems you will get a bunch of collections gems through which you can free caged dragons, upgrade buildings and make the gaming experience fast. 

But before you buy, make sure you spend them right Don't spend all over the place. I used these gems to unlock caged dragon, upgrade the hatching building “(Hatchery).”

This helps me to hatch more eggs, increase my dragon portfolios, and grow them to win in battles

Moreover, I used them to repair the golden tower (Midarian Tower) beside my island which increases gold production by 20% So if you want a fast gaming experience or just need quick progress then go for buying gems with real money and spend these gems right.

2) By filling piggy bank, doing different tasks within the game.

You can fill your piggy bank and can get a large number of gems. To fill your piggy bank you need to feed your dragons. 

So, breed dragons, then hatch them, make them a new habitat, and then feed them. Feeding dragons will increase your piggy bank and can get you closer to 100+ gems. 

Then you can pay to open the piggy bank with real money at a great deal offer.

3) By buying “Islands for sale”.

When you buy islands that are just on the left side of your current island. 

There are three islands for sale, you can buy them and you will get 100+ Gems as well as free space to grow your building, dragon portfolio, feeding grounds, habitats, etc.


Free Methods to increase Gems:

Now let’s look at free methods through which you increase gems in dragon city


4) You can collect by leveling up XP and claiming the rewards.

In order for you to level up you need XP and to gain XP you have to do tasks like

  • Feeding your dragons,
  • Breeding and Egg hatching,
  • clearing bushes trees and obstacles you can win great XP,
  • winning quest battles.


Increase food production in dragon city to feed dragons:

For feeding dragons you need to increase the food production in “Food Farm”.Some methods you can use to increase food production is to unlock “Green House” then watch the ad and let it grow food for you.  

Second, you can unlock and go to “Genemancer’s Lab” and with the help of Grid coins, you can open up the chest box and get a large quantity of the food as well as gold coins. 

Third, go to a “big food farm” and regrow all food. When your dragon reaches level 15 you need to upgrade your “Dragon Roost” building to keep growing your dragons.

These are some of the methods that I use to increase food production for my Dragons.

I will recommend focusing your efforts on breeding dragons, hatching, and increasing the number of dragons portfolio. Free some caged dragons to become stronger.

Upgrade Dragon Rooster building:

To keep feeding dragons and gaining XP upgrade dragon rooster building with gold coins.

Quest Battles:

When you have more powerful dragons than you can win in battles. You can do quest battles and win food and XP in reward. With XP level up and win free Gems

Clear bushes trees and obstacles you can win great XP:

Click on the obstacles like trees, stones and clear them. It will take some time to clear which will give you XP rewards you can speed time by spending Gems. 

With this XP you can Level UP and win Gems reward.


5) Reach level 16 and unlock the “Run Of Clones”mini-game.

To win more gems you can increase your level by gaining XP and reach level 16. 

At this level “Run of clones” mini-game will unlock situated at top of your current Island. In this game, you are given a limited number of flight stamps which you can use to play. 

When your flight stamps run out do some task that is given to get more flight stamps. By participating in this game you will get free Gem rewards, as well as many other rewards.

6) You can do arena Battles and win gems awards.

To do arena battles first go to battles then choose "Arenas" and then fight your opponents. 

In this way, you will win trophies and can increase your arena rank and claim the rewards. 

You can see the reward by going to the arena tab and clicking on the gift feature at each arena. In this gift, you will get free gems and XP. 

As I have made my way through level one Arena and claim the Gem award.

As you do more battles your Arena Rank will increase and, hence more Gem rewards you can win.

7) By doing Leagues Battle and winning gems.

You can win "gems" by completing the Gem Bar at leagues battle. 

In which you do a number of battles with another opponent, win and finish the gem bar to win the Gems in reward.

As you win more Leagues Battle. Your Rank will increase and after every 100 battles your number of Gem rewards will also increase at 1 to 100 you will win 3 Gem awards at 100 to 200 you will win 4 gem awards and at 200 to 300 you will win 5 Gem awards and So on.

Pro-tip to win battles in "dragon city":

If you want to win battles I would suggest increase your dragon levels. 

First, save your gold coins then spend them to upgrade the "Dragon Rooster" building in this way, you will be able to grow your dragon's level more. Upgrade your food farms; grow food, find food in “Genemancer’s Lab” and keep your dragons strong. The second tip is to battle smartly, use those dragons that have strong attacks against the opponent, switch dragons, and keep those dragons that have stronger attacking points. You will be able to win battles and can increase League Ranks and Arena Ranks. Gems rewards will increase and you will get more gems.

8) You can play games every day to claim daily rewards. Streak rewards.

You can play game every day and in the calendar you can get streak rewards in the form of gems. If you play for 2 days straight you will win the reward which is mentioned in the calendar. Check your Dragon city calendar for rewards. 

9) Visit the Dragon TV.

You can visit dragon TV hanging below your island and then watch the ads to fill the bar and win Gems awards.

10) Complete Tasks at Dragon TV.

At dragon TV you will find the task button and complete task option which will enable you to win Gem awards

11) By Repairing dragon tower hanging beside 2nd  island.

As I have Repaired the golden tower (Midarian Tower) at my current island this has increased 20 percent of gold production with the help of Golden Dragon Powers. 

You can unlock  "Jeweler's Tower" hanging around the 2nd island. It's locked and needs Dragons to repair. I would recommend breeding and hatching dragon according to their Elements and increase the repair process of "Jewelem's Tower". 

It will enable you to win free Gems.

Final: In the end

I will say that there are free and paid methods to get Gems in Dragon City.

I would recommend completing and winning Battles as the fastest and easiest method to get gems in dragon city. The second would be to level up and the third would be to watch ads on dragon TV.

If you are looking to get an advantage in gaining Gems and make quick progress then use paid methods.
