Purchasing Gems[edit source | VE]
Gems can also be obtained in exchange for real currency by pressing the button on the Gems bar at the top of the screen. As Gems have a multitude of purposes, the option to purchase them is shown in most areas of the game (including, but not limited to, battles or various selection screens and windows).
Trainers can choose to buy any of the six available Gem bundles on the purchase selection screen. Some packs are presented as Best Deal! or Recommended! by the game. Whenever a bundle is offered discounted, the percentage of the discount is shown next to the pack and the time left until said discount is no longer available is shown under the pack. Discounted bundles can only be purchased in the limited amount shown atop the pack (in most cases). Whenever there is a limited-time promotion, the sign is shown both on the Gems bar at the top of the screen and above the shop that is on the mountainside below Chronos.
Aside from the various packs shown, there are also the options for subscribing to the Clam and to watch videos in exchange for spinning Otto's Lotto wheel (if still available for that day). Pressing the Check It Out! button in the snapshot of the Clam, brings up an information panel with the description of the Clam and its offer. Pressing the Watch An Ad
Video button in the snapshot of the wheel takes the Trainer to Otto's Lotto to watch videos for prizes. Additionally, if the Trainer has never purchased anything from the game using real currency, the notice is shown on this screen.
Gems are the only currency that counts toward the VIP level of the Trainer. Any purchase of Gems, either directly or indirectly, is added to the VIP level. In the bottom of the Gem offers screen, the icon is shown, indicating the Trainer's VIP level inside. The total number of Gems the Trainer purchased and the total number of Gems needed to reach the next VIP level, separated by a / mark, are displayed to the right of that. Pressing the VIP
Benefits button takes the Trainer to the VIP interface.
The amounts shown below apply to the majority of Trainers. Discrepancies among Trainers based on their country and platform can exist in some cases. Additionally, values can change depending on various promotions and sales.
Gift Giver[edit source | VE]
During Gift Giver promotions, whenever a Clan member purchases 50 or more Gems, all of their Clan mates are awarded gifts. The type and number of gifts awarded depend upon the number of Gems purchased. The Trainer can choose to hide their name from being seen by the other Clan members when they receive their gifts.

- To speed up any amount of time, the option has to be pressed after selecting what is to be sped up. A confirmation window pops up and pressing the Skip All button confirms the choice, provided the Trainer has enough Gems to pay the cost.
- There are two factors that influence the cost of speeding up timers, namely the duration and the feature. For example, the same amount of time for health regeneration in the Enchantment League and the same amount for breeding]] does not have the same cost.
Speeding Up[edit source | VE]
The formula for speeding up timers in events is as follows:
(TimeInSeconds ^ 0.5) * 0.1
The formula for the Bottomless Dungeon is as follows:
(TimeInSeconds ^ 0.56) * 0.13
The formula for the Enchantment Altar is as follows:
(TimeInSeconds ^ 0.45) * 0.15
The formula for all other timers that can be sped up is as follows:
(TimeInSeconds ^ 0.54) * 0.12
The final result is then rounded up to the next multiple of the rounding factor, in the following intervals:
- up to 10: 1
- up to 100: 5
- up to 200: 25
- up to 1,000: 50
- over 1,000: 100
- The cost to speed up the hatching time of the Water Dragon (5 minutes): (300 ^ 0.56) * 0.15 = 3,6 - rounding by 1 applies, thus the cost to skip the timer is 4 Gems.
- The cost to speed up upgrading a Dragon's skill to Level 2 at the Academy (3 hours): (10800 ^ 0.56) * 0.15 = 27,2 - rounding by 5 applies, thus the cost to skip the timer is 30 Gems.
- The cost to speed up the breeding time of a Legendary Dragon (2 days): (172800 ^ 0.56) * 0.15 = 128 - rounding by 25 applies, thus the cost to skip the timer is 150 Gems.
- The cost to speed up the hatching time of a Divine Dragon (4 days and 19 hours): (415200 ^ 0.56) * 0.15 = 210 - rounding by 50 applies, thus the cost to skip the timer is 250 Gems.
- The cost to speed up the waiting time in the first challenge of the Greek Boss Challenge (4 hours): (14400 ^ 0.5) * 0.1 = 12 - rounding by 5 applies, thus the cost to skip the timer is 15 Gems.
- The cost to speed up the post-battle health regeneration of a Dragon with 0% health (2 hours and 30 minutes): (9000 ^ 0.54) * 0.12 = 16 - rounding by 5 applies, thus the cost to skip the timer is 20 Gems.
Purchasing Food & Gold[edit source | VE]
The amounts below apply to the majority of Trainers with a level above 59 as they depend on the Level Modifier. In some cases, discrepancies among some Trainers based on their country and platform can exist. Additionally, values can change depending on various promotions and sales.
