Upgrade City Hall
Upon upgrading your City Hall to specific levels, you will be rewarded with a stack of gems.
You can see the exact levels at which the reward for upgrading your City Hall includes gems in our City Hall guide.
The number of gems you receive depends on your level of City Hall.
There are also special quests and missions for upgrading your City Hall that give gems.
You will be able to collect these gems in quests tab and under Era Breakthrough through the icon in the top right corner of the screen.
Participate in events
Events are common in Rise of Kingdoms – make sure to keep an eye on them.
In many of them, you get gems as a reward for participating.
You will also get gems sent to your email by the developers after a maintenance update or after a system downtime, so be sure to check your mailbox.
Some examples of events include:
- Tiles and Bricks
- Overwhelming Strength
- Academic Elite
- Ark of Osiris
- Strategic Reserves
- Daily Login: you will get 500 gems on the first day of this event.
The Event Calender under the icon in the top right corner of the screen has a list of all the current events you can participate in.
Farm forts and barbarians
You may get up to 10 gems for killing barbarians and destroying their forts.
It may not sound like much, but it certainly adds up in the long run.
Always go for the highest-level barbarians that you can comfortably defeat.
As you continue to kill barbarians, you will also acquire tomes of knowledge needed for upgrading commanders.
Some civilizations are better than others at farming.
Learn more in our best civilization in Rise of Kingdoms guide.
Some of the side quests in Rise of Kingdoms give some gems as a reward.
As a beginner, you will be rewarded with more gems when you complete quests such as upgrading City Hall.
Main story quests may also reward you with a lot of gems.
When an upgrade unlocks a new era, you will acquire extra gems.
Every day, you will also get new missions to complete in the Dark Forest.
Every mission gets you a different reward, some of which include gems.
Make sure to do all the missions, and the gems will slowly stack up.
Complete the missions as soon as you can to get gems faster.
Link your account to Facebook and follow socials
You will not get explicit information on how to link your Rise of Kingdoms account to Facebook and the resulting reward while playing the game.
Well, it’s worth noting that you will be rewarded with 200 gems as soon as you bind your account to Facebook.
Linking these two pages is also a security option.
Your account will always be recoverable, and you can also shift to Android or IOS as you wish.
Here’s how to link the two accounts:
- Click on the upper left corner of the screen where your profile picture is
- Click on settings.
- Tap on the Facebook icon.
Occasionally you may come across a “Like us on Facebook” event.
You can also get 200 extra gems by following Rise of Kingdoms on their social media under the Communities tab through the icon in the top right corner.
If you like this page, you will be rewarded with some extra gems.
Complete your daily goals
In addition to other valuable rewards, you will get 100 gems when you finally get to the last chest on your “Daily Objectives” tab.
Just collect 100 activity points to unlock the final daily quest chest that contains these 100 gems.
After playing for some time, you will unlock Jewelry research inside the Academy.
Once you do your research on Jewelry, you can mine gems around the map.
The gems may be scarce, but they are free, so be sure to take advantage of them.
You will need 20 minutes to fully gather 10 gems.
A whale is a term for a player who spends a ton of money on a game.
A whale alliance is an alliance with several players that spend a ton of money on the game.
Getting into one of these is no easy task.
But you will receive gems every time someone buys a chest if you get into one.
The first occupation of an objective
When your alliance gets the first occupation of an objective in your kingdom, you receive a lot of rewards, including gems.
We, therefore, recommend that you actively participate in KVK and help out your alliance if it’s trying to get the occupation of a new objective.
Purchasing gems with money
The final way to get gems in the game is by purchasing them directly with money.
There are many different packs you can purchase that give gems.
New packs are often released as new updates or events are released.
That’s how to get gems in Rise of Kingdoms!
