Best Use of Gems

I'm a new player wondering what gems should be spent on. I assumed chromium data cards but I am now wondering if it is better to refresh arena (or other) battles. Ideas?

  • Only refresh Arena attempts if you definitely know the 5 extra attempts will get you into the next reward bracket otherwise it's not worth it. Also the crystal cost for refresh goes up each time, so the first is 50 crystals and the next is 100, I've never refreshed more than once so I don't know if it continues to go up by increments of 50 or if it's double the amount.

    If you're just starting out then it depends on whether or not you want to take a chance at unlocking some strong characters using chromium cards. I wouldn't waste crystals just buying 1 card at a time, definitely save up to buy the 8x pack if you can wait.

    Otherwise if you're happy with the set of characters you have now and can easily farm their shards and need materials to train skills or level gear then go with an energy refresh. I don't know if energy refresh costs also increase or not right now. I think they did back during soft launch.
  • 1st refresh 50
    2nd 50
    Next three 100
    Next three 200
    Next three 400
    Next three 800

    In the beginning the data packs may be best, but at least plan on refreshing energy twice a day at 50 crystals to farm shards and gear.

    It seems to be a semi-common misuse of the word. Makes me wonder if it's a translation issue.

  • Only use to refresh energies, all are solid. Usually though use for normal (yellow), since you won't have that high crystal daily income. Tip for all: this game is very heavy on mods, so learn how to farm good ones too aswell.

    Throwback to the days when only refresh costs were the catalyst for these complaints lol

    I’m mostly surprised that this thread didn’t include people claiming that the “game was about to implode” due to the crystal refresh costs.
