Gems

Gems overview

Gems are items that can be used by players of level 25 and above. They can be embedded into equipment pieces (for commander or castellan) giving them extra capabilities, depending on their type (color) and level.
There are 3 type of gems:

  • Normal gems - Can be embedded to any non-relic equipment piece, they vary from level 1 to 13 and can be "forged" (upgraded) at "The Smithy".
  • Unique Gems (red) - Can be emended into Unique equipment pieces only, can not be upgraded.
  • Relic Gems (blue) - Can be embedded to relic equipment pieces only, can be upgraded at "Relicus Enhancement" (up to a level of 50) therefore are very powerful.

Each equipment item can have only 1 gem embedded into it. If you try to embed a gem to an equipment piece that already has one you have two options:

  • Discard the old gem - you lose your old gem when the new gem is embedded. This is always for free
  • Keep the old gem (its being replaced and goes back to your storage) - This will cost you rubies. As high the gem level is, the more rubies it will cost to keep it (level 13 gem will cost you as much as 20,000 rubies to keep !)

Upgrade & remove

Normal gems can be upgraded at "The Smithy". For every level, when you try to upgrade a gem, there is a lower chance for success. If you fail, you will lose all the "surrounding" gems (the one in the center will stay) and you will need to use others to try again. However, you may pay with rubies to have a 100% successful upgrade (as higher the gem level, the more rubies you will need to pay to success). In addition, there is a ruby cost for "replacing" a gem with another one without losing the old one (the same rule applies here: as higher the level, the higher the cost).

Types for gems & their effects

Commander

There are 7 types of normal gems for commanders. Each of them gives a different  extra bonus. When building some "Special commanders" its useful to have the same type of gem embedded into all 4 pieces to give maximum effect (e.g. when building a "Looter commander" put dark blue "Plunderer" gems to all pieces to maximize the looting capacity effect).

Here are the different type of normal gems for commanders:
