Gem

What is gem?

Gem is one of the in-app item. It is used to get cards in the Shop and unlock standard duelists.

Purchasable Item

At the beginning of the game, players can get gems easily (see below for more details of how to get gems). However as they make progress, the main way to get gems will be in-app purchase.

How to Get

Leveling up characters

Gems can be obtained as reward for leveling up characters. When characters reach level 30(max), players can get 500 gems which can purchase 10 packs.

Weekly missions

Players can receive gems and gold by completing weekly missions. To get those reward, players have to finish missions within a week a mission is held.

Stage missions

As well as weekly mission, players can get gem reward for completing stage mission. It can be obtained just for one time.

Duel Quiz

Duel quiz also provide gem reward.

In-App Purchase

Since in-app purchase is not available in the Beta version, it is not sure that how much gems cost at this point.

Tapping Display

By tapping a a point on the display like the screenshot above, players can find gems sometimes. See screenshots below for free gem locations.

Roof of the Card Shop

Street Lamp

Fountain

Garbage can

Efficient Way to Earn Gems

Completing easier missions

Finishing easy missions, such as "winning a duel", at first. Then you can get gems and new cards. That is important to make your deck well established.

Solving puzzle match

Duel quiz have three different level based on degree of difficulty. Level 1 also works as a tutorial and is very easy.

Getting powerful cards

To complete missions, you need to build a good deck to win a duel. Therefore getting cards is also important.

Anyone here feels like they either reduced the chance that the interactive environment will produce gems, or lengthen the time until they produce gems?

Seriously, I just need 1 gem and it took me waiting more than 4 hours and repeatedly checking the lamp/rooftop/garbage can/fountain until one object finally produce gems again.

Who said I didn't duel the LDs?

Besides, I'm strictly talking about the interactive environment here, LDs have nothing to do with the topic.

u literally just said you need 4 hours to get 1 gem, if u duel LD that would be impossible, unless you are soooooooo unlucky that dueling 4 hrs won't get you a single gem, if you duel 4 hrs i bet you can get more than 100 gems, some duels may give you 5 to 10 gems, so dueling 4 hrs should get you a decent amount,yet you say it like the game is greedy and all,u sure it's not your problem?

Again, I'm strictly talking about the interactive environment.

Yes I got more gems from LDs in 4 hours, doesn't mean I cannot ask others if they feel there's a change with the interactive environment.

Just to be more clear, yes I'm dueling the LDs, but in between the duels I clicked on the objects to see if any of them produced a gem.

And it took 4 hours until one of them does so. I don't think it usually takes this long.
X;D
Now i can only get 5 gems(instead 10 before GX update) from random rainbow chest drop from LD...the only thing i hate about this whole update...

Converting skill drops into gems means that from the chest you would normally get the skill that your character already has you get a random ammount of gems instead (1-15 if I'm not mistaken).
And yes - gems still drop in place of already possessed skills.

Tips- Don't buy bundle 10 packs, just buy packs 1 at a time, Save your Gems until 1000,then go to the shop and try your luck... Hope you can get the cards you want... Good luck

Ps that comment was refering to when they announced the end of ultimate rising pack I dumped the saved gems into ultimate rising pack that would have otherwise been blown on neo impact. Now I can take my time on neo impact for mirror wall.

You guys are noobs. Of course buying one by one isn't meant to increase chance of getting something. If you get a sphere kuriboh for example in first pack itself then you basically wasted 450 Gems. If you buy one by one, you can reset immediately after you get what you want. Lol

No the point they are making is that if you are farming a pack for one card and you buy a ten pack, and on your first pack you open thay card, then you wasted 450 gems cause you didn't need the other 9 packs

I typically save my gems until I reach maximum or near-maximum before going to the shop. No sense in wasting them if you're not at at least 9900 anyway.

I have a bit over 9k gems right now but I don't know how to spend them, or what packs are good to make a nice deck. Any advice?

lets be honest : konami dont care about f2p and they don't have to. Even if you save up 10k gems, thats only enough to buy a big box once.

Depends on luck actually You do not spend 10000 Gems so with some luck You can get many copies of UR cards from Huge Boxes .. build many meta decks but You must spend Gems very very WISELY :D

This game is such bullshit p2w i would rather have just spent money on buying the game if it meant i didnt have to buy packs and shit. The game is definitely worth a few decent bucks to outright pay for, for exmaple i could see myself paying 10-15 bucks for this game. Unheard of for an app but its worth it. BUT, the packs are not worth it. Not only are the boxes filled with mostly garbage and non competitive archtypes but you only get 3 cards per pack and the gem cost is 50!!!!!

4 days and i got 2100+ lol you must suck at leveling up characters people get 9999 gems in 2 months do the math if i keep leveling up characters you should have 9999 gems pretty quick in the last 2 and a half weeks i spent 3,000 so add 3000 to my 2100 now add thats 5000 gems... in 2 and a half weeks lol 2 months isnt bad but you should be able to get it faster even if i dont get it before 2 months

the problem with the game is that they r sellimg the wrong things they are supposed to sell things like alternative skins or something like holographic cards or mats or sleeves. they shouldn't be making money from selling the one thing you need to get ahead in this game...CARDS. everyone should have to grind for the cards not at all pay for them. that way makes the community better because it'll show you actually grinders for cards. konami could make money off of other things in game like what I said above, they could also sell alternative art cards that give extra XP as an incentive. its not hard to make a game last forever, its so many cards that are not in the game, they just need to tighten up and give a damn
