What happened? Yesterday he cost 1000 gems and today he is 2000 gems ....I double checked past threads and portalflip site and they all reference him to be only 1000 gems. Now I can't afford him.

Wondering this myself. Here I was hoping to see him half off @ 500 gems, guess that won't be happening.

I was 100 gems away from 1000. I was saving up for him. No way I can reach 2000 by Jan 1.

I'm guessing they found out how useful he really is and jacked up his price since who ever buys him may not never need to buy gems again.

I timetraveled to last week (Tuesday or Monday I think) and found that he was on sale for 50% off if you want to try that. My guess is they didn't think just how many gems people could produce (specially those who where able to drop multiple houses). That's probably why they changed the cost.

Yeah, I was glad I was able to get him at 50% off, making him 500 gems. Now that they took away the custom offers and jacked the price, it's a lot harder to get him. But I really don't blame them. With the high price of some of the companions (Flynn, Cali, etc.), 1000 gems actually seemed to be a good deal. One that I normally wouldn't want to spend, but he does produce quite a few gems (although I wish I would get more 100+ gem payouts...so far I've only gotten 25 gem payouts). So I'm thankful that I got him when I did, and at the price I did. Bummed for everyone else, and know that I would be complaining if I was in the same boat, but I understand why they did it. Although, to make up for it, I wish they would allow us to add more markets, even if it costs to build them, or make them available in the wishing well (which would really give us a use for those wish stones as we would be chasing them like crazy smilie ).

Yeah, they just cost themselves real money here. I was going to suck it up and spend $15 actual real life dollars to get 1000 gems to buy him and effectively free myself from the annoyance of missing out on every. freaking. thing. No way I'm paying $25. And I'm officially tired of the gem run around. Apparently I'm doing something really, really wrong in my gaming method, as I can't seem to get ahead on anything (gems, energy, skylanders, premium/giant houses). I'm getting burnt out trying smilie

Agreed, my son was heartbroken as he was going to use real money for this as well but now can't afford to. I also would have purchased gems to get this, tried this morning and saw price. No way now.

$15 for 1000 gems is outrageously high. I get the $0.99/300 offer all the time. Keep looking for those. Not sure if you can buy more than one as I don't spend any real money on the game.

As for not getting ahead. Don't give up. How long have you been playing? I was in my 30s (level wise) before I started making any real progress.

Never EVER pay full price for gems. They are on sale constantly. Just be patient.

Changing your device's date/time clock to jump ahead or back in the game. For jumps forward or back in excess of 24 hours, you'll need to put your device into airplane mode.

This is a double whammy for me. My game's been broken since Sunday night so not only did I miss the chance to own multiple markets but now Diggs is at a price point that's hard to swallow.

well it seemed they quick fixed it in the past two days. Before when I time traveled in the past (over the past two updates) the new companion was put on sale 50% off. Not sure if it was that personal sale everyone keeps talking about because the sale showed up on the main promotion screen when the game starts up. But I tried it right now and it doesn't work anymore. Sorry, stuck at paying 2k unless a personal offer shows up.

Seems I spoke too soon.......a certain glitch is back that can net you the companion if you have enough wishstones.

In recent months I have always been able to purchase the 300 gems offer twice before it goes away.

My son was in tears when he saw the new price, as he was so close. He also said that he nearly had enough wish stones for the Hall of Legends, but that now costs gems. Sounds like they keep moving the goalposts, and so close to Christmas too #heartless. I would have helped him buy the final 300 gems when on offer, but certainly not now. I had hoped he would get Diggs as it would stop the badgering/arguments. If they are going to pull dirty tricks like this, then I tempted to stop him playing altogether - short-term displeasure = longer-term peace in the household.

The hall of legends can be purchased for wish stones again.

I attempted a time travel today to see what it's all about, and now my game is all jumpy. Any one else have an issue when returning to their islands after a Dr. Who adventure?

As soon as I posted that, I loaded my game and now it's working fine. Weird... Yea, come to think of it, I cleared a sheep mob and one of those single element totem poles popped out of it and now it's working fine. Thanks!

Glad I decided to purchase diggs when I did. Don't have the capability to use him a whole lot yet but I am sure I will further down the road.

Yeah. That is what I got also. I bought another legendary house with em. Going through and going to spend the night seeing what ones I bought because I didn't have the codes for and maybe rack up some gems.
