Clash of Clans How to get more gems

Version 1.0 by
AtomicOnline
01/07/13

Gems are precious in the game. There are a few ways to get additional gems.

Clear the Field

When you remove obstacles like trees, rocks, and bushes from your field, you will occassionally find gems under those items.

Achievements

Hitting certain milestones in the game will reward you with additional gems.  A few examples are building bigger gold coffers, unlocking dragons, blowing up walls and builder's huts. You can see a list of achievements by clicking the girl's face in the upper left of the screen.
  • Nice and Tidy - One example is clearing the field (mentioned above) will both net you more gems in the process as well as get you a mass reward when you hit certain milestone counts (e.g., clearing 500 will get you 20 gems.)
     
  • Sweet Victory! - If you win 1250 trophies in multiplayer battles, you'll get 450 gems. Add that to another 50 you get/keep on your own and you can afford a 3rd builder.

Buy Them

Obviously, this is how SuperCell makes its money.  These are the in-app purchases that keeps this game at the top of the charts.  While some people are adamantly opposed to micro-transactions, if this FREE game gives you a reasonable amount of fun, why not give $5 to the developer to keep it going and you get a little boost in the game.  Also, if you're one that can't stay away from buying gems, go ahead and make a bigger purchase upfront as the per gem cost is cheaper.  Lots of players will buy them $5 at a time instead of just bitting the bullet and getting more value.
  • 500 gems = $4.99
  • 1200 gems = $9.99
  • 2500 gems = $19.99
  • 6500 gems = $49.99
  • 14000 gems = $99.99
