Hi, welcome to my new Gem guide. Gems are the premium in-game currency used to advance players' villages. It is often used for hasty decisions which players initially regret. In this guide, you will learn how to use Gems wisely in the Builder Base.

Builder Base VS Home Base[]

The first thing you will notice on this new village is that the most common and best cost/benefit use of Gems from the Home Base are not available on the Builder Base:

Sack of Gems
  • Gems
    You can’t boost your Barracks, the troop training is already lightning fast.
  • You can’t boost your Mines and Collectors.
  • You can’t boost spell production as there are no spells on this village.

These are the most common ways to spend Gems on your on the Home Village, and that’s what I recommend you to do there, but how should we spend Gems on the Builder Base?

The Builder Base[]

Differently from the Home Village, there are not many ways to spend Gems on Builder Base, here they are:

  • Skipping building timers: honestly, the worst benefit for your Gems. Just wait or be prepared to spend a lot of Gems.
  • Skipping troop training time: the training time is already super fast, waiting for one minute doesn't hurt.
  • Clock Tower: things start to get interesting here. The Clock Tower boosts everything for a few minutes, Mines, Collectors, Barracks and building speed. The problem… it’s not cheap. The Clock can be used every 8 hours, skipping that time can cost over 200 Gems.
  • Clock Tower7
    Skipping the Loot Cap: you get the Win Bonus only on 3 battles a day. To improve your base, you need more resources and skipping this timer is the best way to to this. This can cost over 300 Gems, so make sure to push for more Trophies before skipping this timer to get better rewards. Once you reach the highest amount of Trophies possible (to get a better Win Bonus), skip the timer and win three battles.
