One of the questions I receive most often is “What should I spend my gems on in Clash of Clans”. Gems can really be used for anything within the game and some things are much better to use them on than others!
For that reason, I want to tell you what you should not spend gems on and what you should!
What Not to Spend Gems on in Clash of Clans
In Clash of Clans, Gems are easily the rarest resource you can have. This is the only resource you can spend really money to buy on the game. For that reason, you need to know that spending them unwisely is a terrible idea. So what shouldn’t you spend gems on? You should definitely now spend your hard earned gems on finishing the construction of your buildings and the training of your troops. Why is this? Because for what you get out of it, it is not worth it.
Just to cut one day off of your construction, you will spend almost 300 gems! 300 gems costs you about 3 dollars if you bought them! I understand that upgrading buildings and training troops takes some time but just wait it out. There is a much better way to spend your gems!
What to Spend Gems on in Clash of Clans
So if you should not use your gems to finish your training of troops and the upgrading of buildings, then what should you use them for?! The best thing to use your gems on is boosting your resource collectors. For a full day of boost, which doubles the amount of that resource collected for that day, it only costs 11 gems.
Say you have a collector that collects 3000 of that resource every hour. That is 72,000 in a day. for only 11 gems, you can produce 144,000 of that resource in a day! If you boost all 6 of that resources collectors in a single day, you will collect 864,000 of that resource!
This practically means you don’t have to farm if you have enough gems to boost your collectors day after day! That is a much wiser way of spending your gems than any other option you have on the game.
It would cost you 154 gems to boost all of your black and regular elixir collectors and your gold collectors for one day. In that day, you would make 864,000 gold (Level 11 collectors), 864,000 elixir (Level 11 collectors), and 2,880 dark elixir (Level 2 drills). To but that much gold it would cost you around 450 gems. That goes the same for elixir! TO buy that much dark elixir, it would cost you around 200 gems!
Do you see why it is much better to boost your collectors and drills rather than buying the resource directly from Clash of Clans!
I know I might have gotten a bit confusing here but if you have any questions, just leave a comment!
