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.

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.

Bottom line, after reaching stage 50 (you will probably have already finished the quizes) the only way to get gems is through leveling up every character. Once you've done it the game is over, unless you're rich and don't care to pay to win. That's very discouraging!

Well, actually every game comes to this point and they *NEED* people to buy gems to keep the game going. They have employees and servers in their payroll. You can farm LD lvl 40 for gems. U get gems also for skill conversion. If u dont like the game as it is, u can leave. If u like the game, u can buy gems or farm the hard way. Your choice.

That's just Konami being the money hungry Jews they always are. They ruined the franchise and now they ruin this game too smh...

Yeah, seems like another p2w game disguised as f2p. Eventually you will simply run out of gems, while they keep pushing out better and better cards, so you are forced to buy them to stay competitive.

Well you could still trade with card trader. You could still get the crummy cards from npcs and convert them. Though you probably only get a few cards a week so it'll be much slower. You'll probably want to save some gems for when new packs come out then.

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.

I was blowing a lot of gems on neo impact trying to get mirror wall. If I didn't start saving part way then I would have missed my blue eyes ultimate in the ultimate rising deck (and a bunch of other useful stuff).

There is no point in saving gems if you're going to use them later anyway. you're delaying the progress, especially because a streak won't do anything that buying a small group of backs would. There is a certain amount of cards in a box, so there is no real randomness in the boxes, so the outcome is almost always tame.
anoymous 28days ago
That really doesn't matter. First of all, it's just superstition that a streak matters, and secondly, Duel Links' packs aren't as random as you think: just like how it's decided that 1 complete set has 1 of each UR, the same thing is the case for cards of lower rarities: you can swipe the screen to see the other cards per rarity and their quantities.

Maybe they can set up a rule where you can only use a maximum of 3 UR and 8 SR in a Deck.
