    This combo definitely works!! It took a couple of days for me but I now have one. It looks like a chinese dragon and it’s awesome : ). Add me gem for gem, I have a gifting tree. My Game Center ID is BrittsFun2102

  2. m.christine says:

    Okay, so I have been trying this combo since posted and have gotten either Salamander, Coral, Firefly and etc… Both dragons are level 15 and have been on EBI and EBC… Help???

    • Cephalotus says:

      Just keep tryin’. It’s all a matter of odds — you might get really lucky and get it the first try or you might never get (frustrating, I know). But other than buying one with gems, there is no “sure fire” method.

      • anirishmelody says:

        Dear Cephalotus,

        You are such a sweetheart for all the many gems you have gifted me over the months, if I could figure out how to gift back I would gift you every day that I played DV. But sadly I think I have figured out why nobody is on my DV friend list, It’s probably because I only have an IOS 4.2.1 or some weird #*%&. Anyway, when the day finally comes that I get to upgrade my device, I won’t forget your kindness my dear you have my word on that. Thanks again to you and a few other players that still occasionally send me gems even though I must seem like a brat that never returns the favor I’m not I simply cannot figure out how to make it work. Kudo’s to you all. Make giggles a part of your life and our world will be a better place!!!



        • Melody Olson says:

          Dear cephalotus, As I said back when I wrote this I would not forget your kindness. Now I have upgraded devices however I had to start a new account and I opened it with facebook and cannot figure out how to get to game center. Any ideas anyone?

      • Justin says:

        I think you mean no “sure JADE” method

        Hahahaha I crack myself up

    ZeuZ-er add me gem for gem

  4. Mary says:

    I have a gift tree and need 4 to reciprocate. I think my peeps quit! Friend me: theaznanny

  5. Cindy says:

    Ok, so I got the jade dragon, now how do I get it onto the gemstone island?

    • EnjoiDragons says:

      Has anyone noticed that this dragon does not earn as many gems as a typical gemstone dragon? That is something to be considered when keeping it. It is only worth keeping if you DON’T have all the gemstone dragons yet. Sure hop they make an upgrade for the gem island soon.

  6. Shelly says:

    Legitimate requests only….

    I’ve lost four of my 6. I gained two more in the last couple days so I now have 4, but I’m still looking for 2 more. I send the first gem to prove I’m legit. I don’t ask you to send first then disappear like most of the requesters in these posts. No gems are exchanged until after I accept your friend request then I send first. If you don’t return, then I delete you and move to the next request. Only legitimate gem for gem “friends” need reply. Game Center ID is lmswilson.

    A big thank you to my two new friends…..

    • Shelly says:

      Okay…THANKS ALL. I’ve gotten all the friend requests I needed. I’ll post again if any of my new friends drop off.

    • Shelly says:

      PLEASE……NO MORE REQUESTS!!!! My slots are FULL… I will accept any requests for added friends (for party hat collecting $$$)if you need a larger friend base to gain coins faster, but as of now my request is suspended. If any drop off, I will post again at a later date.

      THANK YOU ALL!!!

  11. Ayrmdragonlord17 says:

  12. eBear69 says:

    Add me eBear69 on Game Center gem for gem, i will give back

  13. upset says:

    I’ve tried this combo about 50 times with no luck.

    • Kaleesie says:

      That happens all the time. And I figured something out, it might not work for you. Every time they introduce a new dragon, there is a NEW DECORATION. I wanted Jade and I was getting frustrated. I was browsing and I saw the Jade tree. So I bought a couple. I got 2 Jade Dragons and it happened to me when Turquoise Dragon came out. Also when they introduced another island there was a dragon (don’t remember) and for the life of me no luck. Until I bought the island. Another time I remember getting 13 Topaz dragons

  14. Iitulii says:

    Got it on the first try!:D

  15. PB says:

    I’ve got this dragon using the above combo – But its rubbish! Only 2 gems per month at its top level! :O
    Best this to do if you get the egg, is just display it, as thats all its worth!
    Very disappointing Gemstone Dragon šŸ™

  16. bboyboczq says:

    I really, really need gems coz my friend told that he will bought me 6pack of beers if i build Epic Breeding Island in ONE WEEK! If You Can add bboyboczq (me) And give me ONLY 1 GEM i would be happy (and I’ll have some beer :3 )

  17. Jo says:

    Add me fem-shinigami

  18. nzhilton says:

    Where can I put it?

    I already have the other 12 Gemstone dragons occupying my island & 10 hours to go before I have an overload. I need to hatch this beastie to check off the goal, but where do I put him? Seems a bit off to not give us the space to house him once hatched.

    • issie says:

      Have you got two of 1 dragon. If you have sell one. The you will have room. If not put it in the hibernation cave.

  19. Paige says:

    I think I got it. Salamander x Plasma and a 20-something breeding time. Second try too! Just trying for the double rainbow now (snow x seaweed + ash x salamander)!

    Good luck all.

  20. Martin says:

    I’ve finally got 24hrs. Is that the Jade dragon?

  21. lito says:

    I tried multiple times daily since posted and still nothing is this the only combination

  22. Ermg1rl says:

    Add me gem for gem I play everyday- ID is ermg1rl

  23. Stacey says:

    This dragons a joke, 52 tries with lvl 15 dragons.. its taken over 3 weeks solid and I still can’t get one. Is this really the only combo ? :l

    • Otterfluff says:

      I absolutely agree. Both upgraded breeding dens on constant shuffle with level 20s, using gems and Kairos as soon as they’re available and STILL nothing… It’s a tad ridiculous. :/

    • Michelle says:

      OMG I know!!! I keep trying an trying. Have been since its been out!! Lvl 15 dragons and kept in the EBC and nothing but more salamanders, blazing, n a bunch of others but nooo damn jade!! It’s literally been over a month with the same combo!! Imma give up soon!!

    • Miles Moo says:

      Don’t get too frustrated, it’s all down to dumb luck. You could get a stroke of luck like me and get it on your first try, or you could get it after tons of tries. Also, I don’t mean to be rubbing it in your face, please dont take this the wrong way. Anyway this was my 3rd Epic dragon, and my first gemstone dragon.

      Also please add me, gem for gem. I’ve got 3 slots open, and I’ll get a gifting tree later, but none of my friends even play anymore, so now Im looking for people who actually do gem for gem, rather than, “you send me a bajillion gems and ill stop playing”.

      Game Center is Miles_Moo

      • Miles Moo says:

        FINALLY I’ve tracked down this comment! I had to go looking for it! People, STOP SENDING ME REQUESTS, my slots are FULL and, in fact, overflowing by one! I accidentally accepted a request at full, and I didn’t know how to unfriend anyone. So I left it with 4 people on my list (I don’t have a gem tree) and people are still sending in MULTIPLE REQUESTS DAILY!
        STOP IT!

  24. Gamerstyle1234 says:

  30. felop11 says:

    its a hard to get dragon, i cant get it, tried lot of times, lol, add me and trade gems for gems, my game center id is felop11

  31. PersonMcPersonMan says:

    Wow! This works! Bought a plasma dragon with 40 of my 50 gems and bred with my salamander and BOOM, 30 hours 26 minutes, first try! That’s lucky, and its my first gem dragon!

  32. Katy says:

    After 11 tries, I just got 31 hours in the breeding cave. I’m thinking it has to be the jade with that time. This is a hard dragon to get.

  33. Tsukasa says:

    That’s what I’m talking about! Just bred a Jade dragon finally with only 1 hour left until the dragon will be discontinued. for all you Valers out there who want to give up, just think of me and go that extra mile.

  48. JValer says:

    Never give up! Bred this one with one hour to spare until it’s taken off the market! This is a Dragon dream come true.
