To unlock the Lava Island, the only way is with 25 Gems.

To unlock the Ivory Island, the only way is with 100 Gems!

You fools, islands must be bought with gems, THEN you can use gold and neighbours to buy expansions. VS leagues get you 3 gems, a purple dragon tower gives you 1 gem every 24 hours, watch 'movies' in the game for gems and open gold/diamond chests for gems.

Yeah neither. But you have to have a facebook account and if some of your friends have dragon city, then they become your neighbours but if you dont have facebook then you cant expand any islands

It should say unlock your second island and fill it with dragon for 7500 golds.If you haven't finish expanding the first island then maybe that's why it won't let.You have to expand the first island first
