Clash of Clans is one of the most popular games in the past decade or so. As such, the in-game resources of Clash of Clans are still very much in demand and players are always looking for more ways to get their hands on the resources, that is, Gold, Elixir, Dark Elixir, and Gems. Gems are often lauded as the most coveted of the lot. Here, we will take a look at the top 10 ways that players can use to get free gems in Clash of Clans.
How to get more Gems in Clash of Clans
If you are a Clash of Clans player then it is impossible that you did not once have the urge to claim free gems by whatever means necessary. Many players often fall victim to third-party websites that claim that they can provide a player with free gems without realizing that they are scams and can often be phishing websites in disguise. However, it has been long stated that Supercell does not condone the generation of gems via third-party websites.
1. By clearing obstacles and Gem Boxes
Clearing obstacles that appear in and around your home village base is by far the easiest method by which you can get free gems in the game. They also grant experience points to the player when removed and are an infinite source of gems. If you are lucky enough then you might come across a Gem Box that grants 25 gems. These aside, this is a slow process but is a foolproof one for sure.
2. By completing timed events and challenges
Another way to claim free gems in Clash of Clans is by competing in and completing the events and challenges that appear in the game. You can earn up to 250 gems along with 600 XP points in total by competing in them. They generally require you to complete certain goals in the game while having pre-defined troops in your army.
3. By completing in-game achievements
Completing achievements is a great way to earn more gems but it is to be noted that it isn’t an infinite source of gems. But it makes up for it by granting the highest number of gems at any one instance. The more difficult and prestigious your achievements are, the more gems they give.
4. By mining them
Following the addition of the Builder Base to Clash of Clans, we were introduced to many new things in the game. One of those things is the Gem Mine, which works on the same principle as the Gold Mine or the Elixir and the Dark Elixir collector does albeit at a much slower rate. The maximum yield of a Gem Mine is 4.8 gems per day, every day as long as you log in.
5. By selling Resource Rewards
The Season Challenges in Clash of Clans give the players a large number of all the resources available in the game. Now, if you lack the storage to store the resources you have, you can always sell them in exchange for gems. For every 20% of resources that you are unable to claim, the game offers you one gem, therefore making the highest number of gems you can earn from selling resources 5.
6. By competing in the Season Challenge
Although it is a rare occurrence with no defined chance of happening, one can always hope that the game offers gems to the players who are active in Season Challenges. For example, in August 2019, the game offered up to 250 gems for those competing in the Season Challenge. It is suggested that one try their hand at the other methods first, as this is the least reliable of them all.
7. By being a part of a top Clan
As the heading might suggest, this is the most skill-dependent way of earning gems in the game. To reward the players at the top, Clash of Clans gives free gems to the top 3 Clans in the game at a given point in time. The first-placed Clan gets 50,000 gems while the following two get 30,000 and 15,000 gems each. These gems are further divided among the top 20 players in each clan, equally.
8. By selling Magic Items
When you win Magic Items by actively participating in the Clan Games, you will find that you have the freedom to sell those items in the market for a specified number of gems. This method is dependent on your success in the Clan Games and the rewards you earn as a result of it.
9. By winning them from the Clan Games
When a Clan takes part in the Clan Games, they get rewards based on the tier of rewards they are placed in. When your Clan unlocks the relevant reward tier that grants gems, then you will get a share of the spoils your Clan will earn from the games, that is, free gems.
10. By hoping that Supercell wakes up feeling generous
Another way is via the Free Coupon Codes or rewards from Twitch Drops. You do get some amazing in-game events which also come with events or such that give out amazing offers in return with different ways to claim them. So keep an eye on such events so that you get the full bounty as well as gems.
Apart from these methods which won’t change until the next update if it changes the core gameplay, as a multiplayer game that is extremely dependent on online servers, issues with the said servers aren’t very uncommon. If such an issue occurs, or certain bugs or glitches appear that can adversely affect the gameplay, the developers often grant free rewards as compensation for the inconvenience. You can surely hope for the rewards to contain the coveted gems, and you will be one happy person if they materialize.
That’s it for our guide on the various ways you can earn gems for free in Clash of Clans. While not all of them are the quickest of methods, the patience will surely pay off in the long run, and you will find yourself as the owner of a large number of gems, possibly enough to fulfill your needs or even buy them via in-game purchases.
