Hey jammers! Little half update today, and it includes some pretty wacky new features. First, the Crystal Liza Statue is now being sold in the furniture orb of Epic Wonders. Neat right?

And now for the Diamond Shop! It is located next to Club Geoz, which has been shortened and shrunk to make room.

The Jamaa Journal does well in explaining the addition.


 And here are some clarifying posts from AJHQ.

Everyone receives a few gems per week, and you can also win them in the Daily Spin game, if you're super lucky.

Now the items to address! There is an animal and pet store in the center of the room, and it looks pretty darn epic.

Sorry everyone who purchased memberships just for the animals. >.< Next, a clothing store with rare past monthly items.

There are also some neat big cat/wolf plushies to choose from!


Sorry to jammers who worked really to get their rares. As a side note, it appears some Elf Tail Armor colors are missing...
Some of the least popular color now appear to be becoming the rarest. How ironic! Other good news for rare lovers, the Weather Clouds and the Giant Lion Plushies don't appear to have rare plaques!
So they're still rare in name, if that makes you feel better. ^.^ Here are a few more questions answer, pretty interesting.
And in the last shop you can buy gems with diamonds!
 You can always check you gem count by scrolling over your gems icon on the top toolbar. So many currencies now!
 And here are a few posts from AJHQ.
So what do you think jammers? Good or bad returning rares? Are you annoyed with AJHQ, or do items not take the center stage in your play? Hope to see you in Jamaa sometime!

    1. Well, they used to be rare, not anymore. The old ones still have the rare sign right? The new ones in the Diamond shop don't have rare signs.

    2. It's a cool update, but some people might feel sad because it's really hard to earn it.. and it's no longer rare now.

      Delete
    3. IM SO MAD AT AJHQ!!! Y CANT SOME THINGS BE NM FOR PETE'S SAKE!!!!!! LORD I'VE HAD IT!!!! (Sighs) sorry for all of the caps lock everyone... Lol... But I just want some things to be nm for once.. Probably the majority of those 10,000 jammers are nm.. Like me... I'm not going to enjoy this update as much as some of you are.... Have fun everyone.. :'( ~Greekwolfawesomeness

    4. Whoa cool I have that green and blue colored tail armour! I suppose it's even rarer now!

      Delete
  3. I actually really like the store.. All these rares coming back helps stop so many scammers from scamming. I have seen so many scammers as of late trying to scam most of these items. I am also super happy the animals are buyable since the Target by my house has no Snow leopards... Thanks for the update Snowyclaw!

    1. I have to say I was soo mad at 1st , because I had all 9 different color legends that took like 8 months to get , and 9 different tails , luckily the four tail still " rare " I have , I understand why people are happy about returning rares , but when you have something really rare ( hint hint ) gazelles , and rhey come back , even tho it's just a fame , it hurts : / , if AJ would just change the color or pattern of new / rare items , everyone could be happy

    3. There will always be scamming, no matter what we do. It's the same as there will always being evil in the world.

      Delete
    4. I know there will always be scamming but honestly the reason I like the diamond shop is because I can get the snow leopard.. I honestly don't have many rares in the shop other then a tail I traded a legend for. But I do have my white tail. In the end though.. Animal Jam really isn't about rares or cool items (Unless your dedicated to it like I was when I first became a member). Other then that the shop is fine.. At first you will be mad but in the end you have to remember that most items don't say rare and 2 clouds never were released so some items still have value. I don't hope for spikes though because then everyone will leave ._.

    1. Well...6th I guess. :3

      Also I just want to say, I know this update is super controversial, and has a lot of people ticked off and boycotting (leaving in protest) animal jam altogether... but I like this update. And yes I was rare before this and worked really hard. But I don't care. I am happy that it's easier now.

      Though on one gem per week that isn't a very quick way to earn... so they still hold some nice value in my opinion.

    2. One of teh best updates wver :3

    3. I'm not that happy with the new update even if I am a member. I worked really hard collecting all my rares and now they are being sold in stores but they don't say rare on them....

    4. Congrats! This update is epic but rare items become unrare...

      Delete
    5. I know people think its unfair and annoying and thinking that AJ is now unfair.. But think about it.. So many jammers can't even get most of these rares due to the people who don't want to trade but scam players instead... The shop is worth it and I won't be afraid to say it in game. I have stayed offline as of late due to so many people complaining about it. Even then Its good they did this because members can't get a snow leopard or arctic wolf. Some of the items don't say rare so the ones that do are technically more valuable. So don't fret.. Diamonds are hard to get...No need to be complaining about it.

  6. Nice update, really exciting, but seriously... AJHQ is SO UNFAIR to nonmembers! I'll miss the monthly member gift.

  9. I'd actually rather buy animal cards from the real store than with diamonds. "Diamond Animals" are 10 diamonds! And at the store, you get an animal, sometimes a den, and 15,000 gems!

    1. You get one diamond every week if you're a member. One of the numbers on the daily spin wheel has been changed to a diamond. So if you are lucky you can get them that way too, members and nonmembers alike.

    1. Many Jammers think of quitting just like you.. :l

    2. Dietcherry, I feel the same way. A lot of my items were from my friend when she quit, and now that some of them are coming back, I feel like it was for nothing. My endless hours of trading, debating, etc; We may as well be all 'noobs' since we can buy some of the most wanted items in Jamaa.

      Delete
    3. I am quitting very very soon.
      I worked my tail off for the items I have now!! I refuse to buy anything from that store. I don't care if the items aren't that rare, I'm still gonna trade for them.

      Delete
    4. Animal Jam never intended for rare collecting to be the number one reason for playing. Some people actually may like to use items because of HOW THEY LOOK, and not care what they are worth. They just want to enjoy the game and look awesome.

      Also, have you seen how hard it is to get even one diamond once you spend the first 4??? I think it is a lot different than being a "noob" as you say. I still see a potential for a good trading system. It will just be a little different now.

      Guess what? I bought and paid for each of my cards (lion, snow leopard, arctic wolf). And you know what? I am still HAPPY that other members have another option for earning the special animals. And it is still a lot of work...because to earn all 3 special animals you would need to save for 30 weeks. That's 7 and a half months.

    5. I never really cared about rares, most of the time I get sucked into a roleplay with my friends.

    1. Also, if they bring back a bunch of rare items, Jammers can't be unique. It'll be just like Club Penguin when Disney took over...

    I have different opinions on the Diamond Shop.

    1. Release of member gifts: I think it's great that more people can have the exclusive stuff, but it kinda sucks for those who put a lot of work into trading for those items. And I know AJ isn't about rares, but still, I feel bad for those who already had those items and basically they just got ripped off by AJHQ.

    2. Release of Pets: I guess that wasn't too bad, but still, people payed money for their membership.

    3. Release of Gift Card Animals: It's great that more people can have them, but people payed real money for them and now their animals don't really have value to them anymore. Oh well, at least they still got membership with the card. But I was reading the Daily Explorer and I believe it said something like whoever bought an animal gift card in the past, they would get free diamonds. But I'm not 100% sure if that's what they were saying.

    4. Being Able to Purchase Gems with Diamonds: I actually think that part is a pretty good idea lol

    5. Confusion and Anger: Now, as you probably know, lots of people are upset because everything in the Diamond Shop right now is currently members only. Apparently lots of people didn't read that the shop will be releasing more items, just like the other shops. So nm items will most likely come to the Diamond Shop. People are very mad about the return of member gifts. I already had 2 legends and a phantom invasion game, but I was saving those up so I could trade them for Sky High rares. Now I wonder how I can get rid of my legends :L I guess I'll have to start playing a lot of Sky High now.

    I also like the music playing in the diamond shop :3 So, in conclusion, I think the Diamond Shop is 50% good and 50% bad.

    1. I agree with about everything you said. Except I would rate it 40% good to 60% bad. Maybe once I get used to the idea, I'll feel a little better...

    2. 1. I agree with you.
      2. I don't think the pets coming out again is so bad, after all lots people were kind of bummed out due to the recurring pet gifts.
      3. I agree with you, sucker for us who bought the cards. But hey! Atleast we got the gem bonuses! ;)
      4. I agree I like that. Then we can spend the gems we earn on the ticket rolls at the summer carnival.
      5. I honestly don't know what to say.

  21. I love this update! Personally, I don't really care about the value of an item.I have the item because I simply just like the item. I am happy that the rares are back because I hope that the scamming will go down.

    1. I think scamming will go down due to the shop opening up. I personally like this update because I really wanted a snow leopard ever since I became a member but all I could buy was a Arctic Wolf.

      Delete
    2. I like that scamming will go down, but I worked so hard for those items!!! Scammers may have been really rare for scamming, but I was really rare because I worked hard!! I'm so so so mad at AJHQ.

      Delete
    3. I have worked so very hard for at least 8 of my rare tail armor colors. I spent so long concentrating on getting a blue and a peach and a black that I was seeing tail armors when I closed my eyes at night.

      It was backbreaking work but I finally got them.

      Now that this diamond shop is here and I don't have to work as hard for them, I feel like I am being rewarded for my past work. :D

      Yes, it is a bit selfish. But think about it. Most Jammers came from Club Penguin. We quit CP b/c they were bringing out all the old items!
      We finally found a game where we could have fun collecting rares and such. AJHQ is ruining our fun though.

    8. Sorry for completely flipping out, you guys. Thanks Marethyu and Manxlion for sticking up for me, though. =3
      @Anon, I worked hard for the items I have, I don't think it's fair to bring them all back like that.

    10. No worries. I guess I understand. ^

      To be honest I am more glad because all of the smug scammers out there are feeling upset that all their hard work stealing from kids was all for nothing now, and the scammed get their rares back.

      I am not happy that innocent hard earners are miserable though. I guess I'm just an oddball who sees it different. :P

    11. I see it the same way you do, Manxy. You aren't an oddball. :P

    12. I think the hard collectors that are against the new store is 50% right and the ppl who don't care 50% right. Because some ppl have worked so hard to get the rares they needed, they had a chance to get them, but they're not rare anymore. And it's fun with trading good things. But, there was a HUGE chance of scammers around Jamaa, so yea I'm not angry about rares coming back, I just don't like that ppl are arguing, and I both agree (I'm mostly on the I don't care side).

  31. To all of you all; "It's all about FRIENDSHIP! Who cares about the rares? *derp face*"
    Yeah, if this was JUST about friendship they wouldn't make Monday Rares! I know I'm kinda blowing up right now, but I worked really hard for those items I have just to have them return and people to say; "You need to get over rares! That's not what the game is about!" Well, loyalty is the most important thing to me and I have lots of very close friends on aj! Baguti, xxhollypawxx, thesupremeoverlord, mia776, Betachamp, Rangerwill822, Lalee6, Lostdog....Tons of close friends. But the game is ALSO about rares and working to get them, not scamming and cheating. The game isn't about ONE thing, you guys! I'm just saying, you can have friends as well as work for rares. I think that's just a saying of non rare people to make themselves feel better. I mean no offense to anybody.

    1. That's was kinda rude to say that about non rare people have u thought that they do feel good about themselves because their a good person your being rude if you are going to cause drama about rares coming back you probably shouldn't play the game calm down there is still rares around

    4. Look here Anons. The rare people in Jamaa has spent HOURS on end trading for their rares. Some even stay up until 3:00am, trying to trade for one item. Overtrades, debating, etc; It's not easy! So if you have anything else that's rude to say, say it below. I don't care.

    5. I know they spend a long time trading I'm rare myself but she doesn't have the right to say that stuff about non rare people

    6. She's not being rude! She's just being truthfull. I remember when I was un-rare, I said the same things. "AJ isn't aout rares"-"AJ is about friends and fun!"

    8. They made RIMs (rare item Mondays) for people who want cool items! Its IS about friendship Zoraz, your being a stuck up loser like the rest of them. I don't care if you quit, no one cares. I spent hours on end getting my rates, tail armor, freedom wings, etc, and I LOVE the new update! Just like Snowy said, "Other good news for you rare lovers, the weather clouds and lion plushies don't have the rare plaques!" All you greedy rare people (like Frosty731 said above) DON'T GET THE PURPOSE OF ANIMAL JAM.

      Obviously AJHQ wanted rares in the game b/c if not, every item would be in the stores!

  33. I hate this update DX
    Does AJ know how hard I worked for my items!? It took me forever to get my red and cream legend, and this is what I get? Uncool -.-
    Except, I'm kind of happy because I had the gold tail armor yesterday, and I traded it for a really good item before they came out which is pretty awesome XP
    I also think they will only be putting monthly gift in the shop, so founders beards sky high rares and den betas and other clothing rares will probably still be rare which is pretty cool :D

  34. There are some negatives and positives about this like you can get the clouds that people barely want to trade. Though one bad thing is like in the comments above that people traded hard for stuff and i do feel bad for you people. Though you can get animals that you could only get on membership certificates and cards.

  43. I am quite upset, because rares are diminishing in value. Also, Animal Jam is starting to become another one of those tacked-on games where EVERYTHING you do needs a membership. And what is the point of gift cards if you can BUY the animal? DX The least they can do is make a certain animal be only buyable there!!

  44. Im pooped. I'm very happy for this update, but I thought we could buy diamonds with gems. I thought that. After I bought the GEMS, I felt like an idiot. Oh well, 1 more gem comes next week.

    I'm sorry AJ, you're just getting worse now. I'm quitting by the end of summer, so oh well. AJ, you're turning into club penguin now, and that just sucks... I thought you'd be better. Now wait till spikes come out, but I bet this is some people begging for legends to be sold. And every day I see members freaking bullying nonmembers just for BEING nonmember. AJ you're taking this too far. I know AJ needs money, but I bet enough people pay for a membership each month, year, or day. How could you do this, when people work extra hard for spikes, rares and stuff, then bring them right back? It's not fair that people now get to brag about it, because two of my quitted friends had to work EXTRA hard to get a legend for my friend, and now it's gone to waste. COME ON AJHQ. If you bring spikes back on, the only thing that prevents me and Reaper from being bullied like the rest, everyone will quit. You've brought stuff some people had to BUY with money to get. How much more stupid are you going to get? I'm sorry AJ, you tried too hard, changed too much since beta, and now I'm somewhat glad to be quitting soon... Just letting my feelings out.

  58. Ok, well first of all I like totally passed out when I saw the Diamond shop! And it's like heaven in there. Legends, clouds, animals, gems, ect! AJHQ answered my prayers! All they need to do is bring back spikes and worns!

    I know some of you disagree. All of us have our own opinions and have the right to say what we feel. Aj was never created to be judged on how rare you are! OMG settle down people, it's just a game! Your not going to die because of this change!

    Ok, this is very important. STOP MAKING FUN OF NON MEMBERS! JUST STOP! THEY ARE JAMMERS ALSO! AJ IS SUPPOSED TO BE ONE BIG FAMILY!

    But i have to agree, somethings are stupid about this. Like nonmembers get nothing, and people can't get into the place, fighting, not enough diamonds, ect. Just deal with it! What's done is done! All you can do is write AJHQ a letter. But on the bright side, you get the items you actually want! It's good because some jammers missed the good monthly gifts and rares! There are still rares. Don't be babies and say oh nothing's rare anymore, AJ is a wreck, blah blah, blah!

    Sorry that's long....

    Guys, sorry to say I'm leaving AJ after summer, before it derails.
    It was great to beta test it and all, but AJ, in trying to regain it's charm, set itself on a road towards failure.
    I know you all members are happy, but all my friends' efforts to help each other is now all down the drain. I'm sorry but... I worked really hard for all I have, and a really nice friend who is on half quit donated half her stuff to me. I've been putting up with AJ becoming like Club Penguin... but this is exactly what I didn't want to see.
    AJ wasn't just a game for me. I had friends, who quit because of it's changes, not because of rares, but other reasons. And I've lost that all, good people who listened to all the things I was sad about, and shared a mutual understanding with me. And now without them, in a few months, I'm bidding you all goodbye.
    I'm not a baby. This is my opinion, and I'm sure a lot of people share it. AJ was a portal away from real life once, where I could let go of my stressful life, but now it's not the same anymore.
    And even if you complain about us being rare greedy whatever to you... We all share a speck of that greed. It's the point of humanity and the part of the basic rules. We compete and try to be first.
