In this Archero gems guide, I’ll be showing you ways how you can earn more gems every single day. Make the most of your energy and a small nifty trick to boost your coin earnings.
This is basically a resource guide on how you can better optimize your gems, energy, and coin usage and earnings and just managing all of that.
Gems are probably what you want most in the game, well at least personally for me. I do know there is a coin issue but that is something that can be grinded for.
Before I get into the best methods to earn gems I first want to address what you should spend your gems on.
I get frequent questions daily on if I should use gems on chests or the new hero helix. So with helix, he is extremely strong and he does cost 1,500 gems. Yes, you should save up 1,500 gems with helix and then afterward I recommend using gems on the item vendor that pops up from time to time. Mostly in chapters 3 and 6 which are good spots to grind items.
Stop Spending Gems On Chests!
Why I don’t recommend spending your gems on the chest is because it’s just through luck base. You’re more likely going to get an item you don’t want. Basically you’ll just end up with a bunch of items you won’t be using if you’re using the golden chest route.
As for obsidian chests, the chances of getting an epic are there. However, it is a very expensive option for a very low chance.
If you still want to spend your gems on chances you’re better off purchasing an attempt for 50 gems on the daily challenge “Flying Bullets” where you can gain multiple common drops. The second attempt is 100 gems.
However, please only do this if you are confident if you can beat the challenge easily.
As for the obsidian chest x10, it’s really not that great of a deal don’t save for it, it’s not worth it. You only save 60 gems for that deal which is barely anything that’s just one golden chest.
In conclusion, use your gems for the item vendor or for any new powerful hero such as Helix or Meowgik as of right now.
The Best Way To Earn Gems
Okay, so there are three methods you can apply to maximize your gem earnings.
Every single day we get a supply pack. This supply pack can be found on your world tab and on the top left corner there is a present icon.
Clicking on that icon will reveal a supply pack that we get daily. You don’t need to log in or anything, it will always refresh every 24 hours so make sure you open your supply pack every single day.
This supply pack contains 30 gems, 20 random materials, and 5,000 coins which you can obtain in return for watching a video ad. Some people would get the alert where it says the ad is not ready. Either wait a little bit and close the game or just spam tap it.
As a free-to-play player, every season past grants you 145 gems. So far the season pass hasn’t changed in rewards and it lasts for about 13 days at a time.
Make sure you complete every season pass for the extra 145 gems and obviously the extra quirks with it. Personally, I just found the current chapter I’m at as 13 days is plenty of time for me to unlock the gems.
However, for some, it is not feasible as you may not be reaching that far in your current chapter. I would recommend chapters 3 or 6 and also the daily challenges. I think they are the easiest to grind for monsters and mobs and also you get loots and sapphires with it.
We’re all pretty familiar with the gem wheel. It will pop up after beating a boss if you take some damage to avoid the devil. We get 5 spins every day on the gem wheel in return for watching an ad.
What I find pretty annoying with the gem wheel is that it’s only a chance and not a 100% getting gems. Because we are watching an ad for it which in my opinion should result in guaranteed gems.
Trick To Always Get The Highest Reward In Gem Wheel
With the gem wheel, there is a chance to earn coins, 10 gems, or 20 gems. Obviously 20 gems are what we want as it is the highest in value. Here is a way to always get 20 gems each time which results in 100 gems total a day.
Step 1: Watch the ad.
Step 2: Watch the spinner as it slows down. The spinner gives us enough time to figure out where the spinner will land. If you can clearly see it landing on the option you don’t want.
Step 3: Quickly force close the game.
Step 4: Reopen it and resume the game.
Now you have to be really quick when you close it because if it does land, then you do lose that attempt.
This way you will still have your gem spin attempt and then you can try again if you do close it in time.
Where Can I Farm Gems From Gem Wheel?
There are three methods I recommend if you want to farm gems from the gem wheel.
Method 1. Run through chapter 1, especially if you’re already on a higher level. I complete chapter one in a few minutes, the benefit here is that you can rush the boss and kill them very quickly. But this is the last method I would use as it’s not very valuable in terms of energy usage.
Method 2. If you’re farming for item drops, coins, sapphires, just implement these into your runs. The benefit is that you’ll still gain everything else so it’s pretty much the best bang for your time.
Method 3. Do chapter 7, this, in my opinion, is the shortest and the best route as it is boss after boss. So, you can continuously defeat bosses for a gem chance. Not only that but you will also be farming sapphires so it’s the Sapphire and Gem win.
In conclusion, this is very time consuming and what you’re basically doing here is keeping your gem will attempt for the next wheel but every time you use that attempt you’ll have to watch an ad and you also have to keep feeding bosses and whatnot.
It’s really important to keep in mind that energy does come into play here. You may not have enough energy to keep farming the gem wheel since it’s all based on luck. This is also a reason why I recommend chapter 7 for general farming.
How Many Gems Can I Earn From This Method?
As for 5 energy, you have 10 attempts on the gem wheel. If we add all the gems that we earn per month and you’re using it at the most effective rate. If there are 29 days in a month, you would gain at least 870 from the supply pack, 290 from the battle pass, and 2,900 from the gem wheel but that’s if you’re willing to put in the time for it.
It’s very important that you have enough energy to keep attempting your luck on the gem wheel. In total, you could gain at least 4,600 gems per month but remember that gem wheel is reliant on energy and again I’d recommend chapter 7.
Best Way To Save Your Gems
Another way to save your gems properly is to know when to use them. Besides chess, the item vendor, and event attempts a lot of us probably purchase revives. Revives cost 30 gems each, this can easily add up if you’re using them a lot. I used to have a really big confidence issue of Archero and will waste a lot of my gems on revives only to die in vain.
So my suggestion is to only use a revives on the end boss, A level that you struggle on but know you can beat the later levels, or a boss you struggle on but know you can beat the later bosses.
For example, I don’t struggle with the end boss in chapter 7 but I did struggle a lot with a cactus boss and always died to him. In the end, I used my revives on him and was able to sail smoothly through the rest of the chapter.
Another reason to use a 30 gem revive is if you die in a level where an item drops and you want that item. For example, if a monster dropped a common tornado and you want that common tornado then use a revive as the common tornado is worth the 30 gems.
How To Properly Spend Energy?
Energy is super important in the game, energy is what lets us play the game. Archero is even more gracious now with the free energy and I’m going to show you how you can maximize your energy usage daily.
Personally, I don’t go through my energy every day. I always have free energy via ads available and I rarely use them.
I may be an outlier but to be honest I’m researching more than I’m playing Archero these days. I know a lot of players have trouble with managing their energy so I’m going to fix that for you.
Gain Extra Runs From Full Bar Energy
We gain 5 energy per hour if we per se slept for eight hours a day. That means we get 16 attempts per day if we were to play every single time we had energy. We get an additional 4 attempts for free by watching ads when our energy is lower than 5. That’s a potential 20 attempts per day.
If you want a few extra runs every time you have a full bar, if you’re in school or at work or just doing something but you have maximum energy. I recommend entering a chapter and then exiting the game. This way you use 5 energy and your countdown timer is already ticking. When you enter the game just resume and you’ll already be in the chapter and once you complete it, die, or whichever you’re already gaining energy.
This is a great method to use when you’re not playing but your energy bar is full. I recommend doing this before you go to bed.
Stack Up Your Energy From Rewards
The second method to save energy usage is your battle pass. Each battle Pass grants 20 energy and you can just let it sit there. What I recommend is to first use the free energy from watching ads and then if you need to then use the battle pass energy. I use the battle pass energy as my second last resort as it doesn’t expire and it will just sit there until that season’s battle pass is over.
The rewards usually come with energy and gems and sometimes a key and if you don’t know the rewards is something you gain when you reach a certain level in the chapter. If you don’t need the gems right away I would honestly just leave the rewards there.
When you do need the energy this is my last resort if I’ve used up the free energy and battle pass energy. Sometimes you want the gems or the keys and that’s perfectly fine but if you don’t need them right away I would save the energy to manage and optimize your energy usage. Managing your energy properly results in more chapter runs.
This is just a small bonus extra as I haven’t quite finished my farming guide for coins, sapphires, etc but something you can implement into your gameplays right now.
Like I said earlier the wheel is something that comes up when you take damage from a boss. If you are specifically after coins and you don’t need the devil then I recommend taking damage to have a chance at winning coins from the wheel. I recommend this especially on farming runs when you don’t really need the chance abilities from the devil.
Usually, farming runs is something you can farm easily and not really worry about your abilities.
And that is all for our Archero gems guide. I really hope that a lot of the things I have said in this guide will help you or have helped you.
