The One-Stop Guide on How to Earn and Spend Gems
Time or Money. Either of them can get you ahead in Clash Royale, but it depends on you which one you would rather spend!
Clash Royale is a Free-To-Play game that tows the line with Freemium or Free-To-Win. That isn’t a negative comment about Clash Royale, as anyone can technically progress without spending money, and they do a GREAT job of allowing that progression. Yet, someone with 10,000 USD to burn and a desire to own everything can get a pretty sweet deck before the everyman who doesn’t want to throw away his life savings.
That being said, it is natural to hate waiting 24 hours just to open a chest or get some new cards. You don’t actually have to be rich to use Gems. In fact, Gems often are given away or earned from normal day to day Clash routines.
This guide will walk you through an aspect of the economy of Clash Royale Gems, one of the most treasured resources in the game.
What are these mysterious ‘Gems’ I hear about?
Gems are a currency used in Clash Royale, to purchase many things. Gems can be used to buy gold, cards, chests, and even unlock chests.
The quickest way to obtain gems is to exchange real life money for them in a micro-transaction. This doesn’t sit well with everyone, as we all like real life money. Never fear! Gems are not needed to play Clash, but add another layer of depth that can help you speed through little obstacles as well as support a developer who then can continue to make incredible content for those who love Clash. They are critical for a fast play through but completely unnecessary to purchase. That being said, you will probably need to study and invest a lot of time to climb the ladder if you don’t ever spend anything (Although this challenge is rewarding in its own right!).
Protip: Make sure you know what you value, time or money before purchasing Gems. Secondly, make sure you set limits (I.E. don’t binge purchase) as it feels so AWESOME to open a chest and get sweet new cards, but it doesn’t feel very good to not pay rent because of it.
How to Get Gems
Spend Real Money
You can spend real life currency to buy Gems. This is done through the Store on the home screen. The store offers numerous items as listed below, including Gems.
If you are buying Gems, remember that more money, equals a better return on investment.
The amount of money you spend (For this instance we will use USD) determines how many gems, but the more money spent, the better ratio of gems to dollars that you have. For instance, spending about $.99 may earn you 80 Gems, while spending $99.99 will get you 14,000 Gems.
If you bought in small increments, let’s say 100 packs of 80 Gems, you only have purchased 8000 Gems by the time you have spent $99.99.Buying small packs of 80 can be way more expensive in the long run.
If you purchased the gems outright though, you would have 6000 more gems. If you are out of your mind stoked for Clash Royale and dropping cash regularly, consider saving instead of spending all at once.
The Crown and Free Chests contain a few gems. These may not seem like a lot at first but with steady dedicated play you may find that you have quite a few gems added up. If you can be disciplined, the little cache of Gems could net you a really good bonus in the store, without spending any money in Real Life. You can usually earn 6-10 Jewels a day from free chests and Crown chests, so this isn’t super-effective if you are impatient, but long-term they can add up!
Achievements also (an underrated way to get a few) reward you with Gems. Sometimes as much as 500 Gems for an achievement! While you can’t always rely on these long-term, they are a great way to collect some extra Jewels in your Clash career!
Use our Gems Online Generator
You probably heard that we build a free-to-use Clash Royale Hack that lets you generate free gems. It’s totally easy to use and can give you a quite large boost ahead. There’s a complete guide on how to use, use it and dominate the game.
How to Use Gems
Unlocking chests! Gems are used to speed up unlocks and the current cost is 6 Gems per hour. As a chest progresses, this number drops. This way you don’t pay full price to unlock a chest with 10 minutes left. Instead, just wait and watch some Youtube if you have only 10 minutes left!
Often a mid-level chest takes around 72 Gems or less to unlock. This is one reason why 80 Gems only cost around a dollar. It’s a quick way to shave 12 hours off of a chest, although, not very good for the wallet. In fact Super Magical Chests take 144 Gems to unlock! Be mindful, lest you have no bread left from micro-transactions.
The Store has a lot of uses for gems! Some examples are:
Retro Royale Stack Offers
May give you LARGE amounts of cards for gems. Often these cards are great for low tier players (Such as 50x Mini P.E.K.K.A. for 200 gems)
Sometimes a new deal pops up that gives you awesome loot. Often these are cash deals, but you never know…
Gold is used to upgrade troops, open certain chests, and purchase cards as well. Gems can help you purchase large amounts and make it Rain in Clash. The best amount to purchase is 10,000 gold as you get the best return on investment.
There are a few chests available to purchase that rotate when the shop is refreshed. These are linked to the Arena you are in and a great way to boost your deck!
Gems can be used to start and compete in tournaments. This is a great way to earn prizes and have a little bit of fun. Starting a Tournament can be a bit expensive but it can be a great, fun activity, funded courtesy of gems!
Can I Become a Good Player Without Buying Gems?
Yes! But it will take A LOT TIME and strategy. This is ok. Even though someone can technically “Buy” themselves to the top of the deck list, they may be a terrible player. Clash Royale is far more complicated than just having a good hand. That being said, a good hand CAN decide the battle if you face a similarly skilled opponent. This means you want to have a variety of options, higher level creatures, and a mix of Epic and Rare cards. To accomplish this quickly will require Gems. Yet it is still very rewarding to work hard and play in the big leagues without having spent a dime.
