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.

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.

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

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 just buy a couple packs at a time whenever I get enough gems and bam there's the UR card I needed. Almost never have to open the last 20 packs

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.

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.

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.

What about the gem you get from converted drop skill? do you still get 15 gem?

converted drop skill? what is that?
<< Anonymous(Chrisbanlis)

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.

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 🔥loads 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.

What is the max amount of gems I can make in this game? Is it over 9999?
<< Anonymous(Albert)

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
