Clash of Clans players are always in need of gems in the game. Here are some tips on how to get free gems and how to use them wisely.
Clash of Clans: Earning Free Gems
There are several ways to earn free gems in Clash of Clans. Just playing the game can let you collect a free bundle of them. For example, expanding your village requires the removal of nearby trees or rocks. Some of these obstacles are known to contain some gems for the taking.
Clash of Clans has set certain objectives in the game known as Achievements. Completing such objectives will entitle players a certain amount of gems. Simply clearing the village from a certain amount of obstacles will earn players a couple of gems.
Winning 1250 trophies in multilayer battles can earn CoC players a treasure trove of 450 gems. Just click on the Achievement icon (this is the one with the female image) to find out the objectives that will let you collect those free gems.
There are also ways of earnings gems outside the Clash of Clans game. Some sites are offering free gift cards in exchange for downloading free apps. Once players earned enough points a gift card will be issued in their name. They could then use the gift card purchase for gems in Clash of Clans.
Sites that offer such opportunities include ClashForApps and AppBounty. Needless to say, caution is advised when dealing with such sites. The arrangement usually requires the downloading of a special app. This is probably a detector and counter for the downloaded apps. But it's also possible malware or virus. Better stick with the free gems in the game if you don't want to take the risk, according to All Cash.
Clash of Clans: Gem Spending
Do not be hasty in spending the gems in Clash of Clans. Using gems to shorten the build time is counterproductive. Instead, keep those gems in reserve and use it only for important items such as an extra builder's hut or village shields.
