Gem Lodes

Gem lodes are special tiles that appear in random places much like a resource tile, except you can gather gems from them. They are a reward for KvK, but they are also occasionally part of a celebration.

Lode Quantities
The higher the lode level, the more gems that are available to be gathered from it.

How to Gather Gems
The basic answer is that you send troops and they gather them and you get the gems when they return, much like a regular resource tile. However, there are some important differences.

It takes more troops to carry one gem than it does to carry one of any other resources. Specifically, it takes 1,000 Army Capacity to carry a single gem.

Your usual gather talents, gear, and research will not help you. But there are
researchs specifically for speeding up harvesting gem lodes. Gem Harvesting I is at the bottom of the Economy Tree and Gem Harvesting II is in the Wonder Battles Tree.

However! Gear for Army Capacity and Travel Speed does work!

Spawn Schedule
Gem lodes appear every 6 hours. Let's call each appearance a "series". Each reward period contains 4 series. Inside each series, there are two or three "waves" of gem lodes for each gem lode level your Kingdom earned.

The times vary, but in general it's shorter at the beginning for the lower levels and longer at the end for the higher levels. They generally spawn for about the first 3 of that series' 6 hours.

    1. Army Capacity gear affects the quantity of troops you need, but it does not affect the speed you load.

      Also, if you change your gear to a lower army capacity before your troops finish, you will not completely mine the gem lode. That is why sometimes you see gem lodes with 1 gem or some random number left. It is not necessarily because it was abandoned.

Darknest Rallies

T's Ultimate Darknest Rally Guide Victory over a Darknest isn't just about how many troops you send at it. It's about which troops and why. Sure, you might be able to beat it by just throwing a ton of troops at it, but you'll end up with more wounded than necessary. Why Do Darknest Rallies? It's basically free loot. Random, but you don't need to do much for it other than hold the rally correctly and heal some troops. Troops sent to a Darknest will never die unless you don't have room in your Infirmary. There are 5 grades of essence just like gear and heroes and... well, pretty much everything. The grade goes up with the Darknest levels. Level 1 nests give you common up through level 5 nests giving you legendary. Theoretically, the higher the essence, the better the loot. I say theoretically because sometimes you cook an epic one for 12 hours and still get something useless to you and other times you do a common one and get something you need

Army Capacity vs Army Size vs Army Limit

What is the difference between Army Capacity, Army Size, and Army Limit? They all sound kind of similar, but what do they actually mean and how do you increase them? Army Capacity Army Capacity is the amount of resources a troop can carry. You can increase it with talents, research, and gear.This statistic is only about carrying resources, but it is applicable for all situations where you would carry them. So if you're gathering from a tile or raiding a castle, increasing this number will mean you can use less troops to carry the same amount of resources. Increasing Army Capacity Army Size Army Size is the number of soldiers you can add to your army. The number of troops you can send is determined by your castle level, plus the command of any heroes sent with that army. You can increase this with Castle Level and Hero Rank. You can also temporarily boost it by using a Max Army Size Turf Boost. Army Limit Army Limit is the number of different grou
