Someone in my guild who’s played more than me didn’t know about this. Dungeon was out for weeks before I heard about it. I think there are a lot of people who just don’t know so I want to try and help with visibility.
There is a hidden way to get a lot of diamonds buried in the Dungeon menu. Look for the relatively small, purple “Offer” button at the top-right:
If you click that, you get a chance daily to spend $4.99 on an unimpressive set of things or 50 gems for a rotating daily offer. The offers are consistent on each day of the week. Sunday offers something like
100 20 diamonds. (I can’t confirm it? No easily-found source has all of the bounties.) Compare “the 50 gems I get weekly from playing guild rewards/tribute” to $4.99 and it’s well worth it. Seriously. 55 gems is currently $4.99 in the store. It gets you twice the diamonds the $4.99 deal in the dungeon gets you. Don’t get snookered by the gem bounty for $4.99. If you want to spend $5, do it this way and get double diamonds.
This is really stupid and I’ve never understood why you hid one of the game’s better deals. I am a dev too, you can’t convince me there’s no way to make “the player has finished the first Dungeon level” available to the store that doesn’t start with, “Well, because we made a bad decision…” Consider putting ALL of the things that cost money/gems in the shop? Also reconsider the incredibly bad $4.99 deal here. I think it’s only there to fool players and it’s bad form.
(I crossed out but left up the inaccurate information, it’d make the people who corrected me look goofy if I deleted/edited away the wrong info.
I still think 50 gems is basically free for what it gets you, and the $4.99 isn’t enough more to get me worked up. I’m also pretty sure a lot of players don’t realize they can get diamonds for gems once a week.)
