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.

Except the face that they keep adding characters and each character can give 2000ish gold after max level. Also there are so many events that give out gems including special events like Pegasus and KC cup. Whiny babies can only cry though.

It is not really a p2w game if you spend your gem wisely. There is few decks, though not many, requires you to have multiple copies of UR cards in boxes. If you focus on 1 ~ 2 decks with free gems you can earn in game, you would be able to reach KOG. Anyway, if you want to have multiple competitive decks running under your account, you have to pay money.

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

If you like this game so much, have no real money or gems and maxed ur account completely
Why not make another account to focus more on other decks, other playstyles and all that.
I mean how hard is it to add your good friends again. Or start farming again.
Besides of that is it also fun to be able to play different OP decks without spending real money
Only thing u need is a new Konami-ID to get ur account safe.
Please stop wining about pay 2 win.
If you play tactical before you start this game u can optimize ur deck without spending money.
I suggest choose a deck style, like dino or GK or relinquished or whatever you think that will be nice to play or get you to KOG or whatever you play the game for.
Check this awesome website to note where the required cards come from, and focus on these decks.
Also besides of that when making a new account and you get the beginning gems between 500-1500 i think it was.
u can buy ur first boxes to get some UR's, if you dont get it, just remove the app data and remake the account to buy the packs again till u spend ur starting gems well and get some nice rewards, then continue playing this game.
Every problem has a solution.
i will post my deck aswell without paying, and i have shitloads of UR´s cause of this method.
I hope this will help u ppl that cant or dont have money irl to spend on this game.

* and focus on these boxes in the shop and focus on the LD rewards (instead of focus on the decks)

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

They most they let you have is 9999 and then they shove the rest in your gift box
not_komoney
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

Just got 5 gems today from that garbage can. First time I got 5 since I joined mid July. Did they change the quantity now? Next one was 3 from shop, 5 again from lamp post, and 1 from fountain.

you are just lucky. it still gives 1 gem most of the time, at least for me : 5 gems are the maximum amount of gems given from tapping those locations.

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

they do the same in real life they sell you the cards to play a card game... at last in this game you can farm gems(few and hardly) to get the cards. it´s all we can say P2Win and Freemium
