Conserve your Gems
Gems, gems, gems, who would not like gems? Gems are the luxury resource that this game have. It allows you to speed things up from construction to training, to spell creation, to research, and even requesting troops. Gems also boosts the duration of training in the barracks and spell factory. Most importantly, gems is the only currency used to buy premium items like builders hut and filling up the storage. However, gems are very difficult to acquire in the game. The easiest way to do it is to buy in real cash. Unfortunately, not everybody can afford.
I know. I admit that it is very tempting to press the green button when we need something instantly at that moment. Gems can only be found the game through completing the quests and getting rid of the weeds, trees, and gem boxes that grows on the field of your base. That’s how rare it is!
If you are on the rush to get the 5th builder, you need to accomplish the jackpot quests like 3 Stars of Sweet Victory (450 gems) and any stars of League All-Star (250/1000/2000). However, it is not easy to raise trophy count even if you do TH hunting – a separate topic for the next post.
My tip for this is to treat gems like your real hard owned money. Use it wisely to the things that really matter. Save it until you’ll reach the 5th builder or else, wasting it, would mean wasting your progress on the game. Oh, but wait, don’t feel too confident when you have the 5th builder. Who knows there might be a 6th one? Just kidding. Actually, my point here is that the decision to make in consuming your gems should be done on a matter of extreme need. Consider it your savings for the rainy season. Keep your fingers crossed for a gem box.
