Sapphires are the special event currency in My Little Pony.
Battle with Dragons
This event introduced sapphires for the first time. They were removed at the end of event.
A dragon lair appeared in Ponyville to the right of Crystal Mine, and spawned a dragon every 3 hours, though the wait could be skipped for up to 15 , depending on time remaining. Each dragon could be defeated using shards of Harmony and dropped about 20 on average.
Sapphires also could be obtained from a special sapphire-priced Balloon Pop available during event, though it was not an effective way to earn Sapphires since they were an uncommon prize and a successful pop yielded only 50-150 , while the game cost 500 to play, (or 250 with 50% discount in the end of event.)
Sapphires could be spent on several characters and items:
- Friendship Lake, decor item for Ponyville
- Event-exclusive Balloon Pop
