How to spend 14000 gems best

Gems make the world go round? Well, you can also be successful without Gems in Clash of Clans, but having some is definitely helping a lot. In this article, I’d like to show you how you should spend your Gems the best way.ย Spending Gems very carefully to get the best boost from it is what you have to do.

What is the best way to invest your Gems in Clash of Clans?

Spendingย Gems for upgrades

If you buy 4,000,000 Gold or Elixir you will pay 1400 gems for it (I will assume for this calculation that you have 2 max Storages and they are completely empty) – this means you can buy shocking 40 million Gold/Elixir with these Gems for upgrading your base.No matter where you are in the game you should upgrade your Wizard Towers to Level 8 first and after that your Mortars to Level 7 if your Town Hall is high enough for that.

No matter where you are in the game you should upgrade your Wizard Towers to Level 8 first and after that your Mortars to Level 7 if your Town Hall is high enough for that.

While this might be a great help for lower Town Hall Level, it’s a waste of Gems. The highest levels are really expensive and take long to upgrade but don’t (ever ever) spend gems for finishing the upgrades right away – in my opinion, a waste of gems.

You can always raid and get plenty of resources – earning 40 millions is maybe 10 hours of farming so don’t spend your Gems on buying resources.

Using the Gems for Troop Upgrades

If your base has a reasonable setup and your defensive building are well upgraded you may want to upgrade your troops via the Laboratory. If you are on a lower Town Hall level you should pick the Barbarians, Archers and Giants to upgrade. I recommend to get the Archers and Giants to level 5 – not level 6 as I see the last level as a luxury upgrade giving not that big of a boost worth the higher training costs (10% more damage/HP vs. 50% higher training costs). Giants level 6 however are mandatory and you should get them if you can gem them as they will be one of the most useful units when raiding in lower Town Hall sections. Also here: don’t gem the instant finish of training even if it is so alluring ๐Ÿ™‚

Barrack and Spell Factory boosting in Clash of Clans
Boosting is the most effective way of spending Gems in Clash of Clans

If you have a higher Town Hall level you should focus on Wizards and Hog Riders – Hog Riders are so overpowered right now and getting them to level 5 will give you very often a 3 star in Clan Wars.

Boosting is the most effective way of spending Gems in Clash of Clans

If you have the time and are patient enough and really want to use every of these gems in the most effective way you should use it for boosting your Spell Factory and Barracks (read here a small calculation on boosting vs. instant gem usage). In this way you can have tons of hours of boosting and attacking and getting probably 5 times as much Gold/Elixir than from instant buying them:

  • 30 gems will get you an 1ย hour boost with a 4 times training speed
  • Gives you (based on 4 Barracks and 1 Spell Factory) 560 hours of boosting time (>23 days)
  • Save you 1680 hours of waiting (70!!!! days) until your Spells/Troops are finished training

So no matter what you will decide to do, 14000 gems are a big boost as you can see if you use them wisely. Maybe next time when you get/buy gems you will remind those hard numbers and take your time to decide what you spend your Gems on.

  1. I am bh 6…bm 5..defenses mostly lv 5 and walls lv3..I am using hampsh base I’ve hit 3000 trophies so with the achievement complete wht shall I do with the precious 1000 gems?

    • Well, they won’t get less so you can save them up ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t reommend you to gem anything in the Builder Base because it’s too expensive, so you can use it for your 5th Builder in your main base ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Wrong, if you spend the 14000 on the longest upgrades (>7 day long upgrades) you’ll be paying a maximum of 1000 gems per week saved. Do the math, at 7 days the gems spent per hour ramp down to exactly 1000 and it keeps ramping down a bit more, you could save somewhere around 100 days if you save up your gems to skip the wait time in the longest upgrades.

  3. 14000!!! In my dreams.. I’ll never have that amount of gems.. I don’t have money on have never won any contest… ๐Ÿ™ I upgraded my base with my own hard work.. I have all the 5 workers now. And I have about a thousand gems and I’m still saving ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Pretty terrible advice. Actually suggesting spending gems on gold lets me know that no real math was involved. And not understanding the upgrading archers is not about the 10% gain or the 50% more training cost (hahahaha anyone over th7 knows elixer is something you throw away because you are usually maxed) it is about 50% more survival time against mortars and wiz towers.

    Just all around bad advice from someone that does not play the game at the higher end.

  5. I usually boost all my resources, barracks, and defense. Then with the gems I have left I buy Gold, Elixer or Dark Elixer

  6. That is if you are low lvl or high lvl.Only ehat you got too upg in low lvl then th and all that. In high lvl i dont think you need so mush cus you already got allmost everything you want.and if you get 14000 gems rigth when you get Inferno tower i shood upg that then all my troops

  7. This competetion so unfair ….to some of us making effort but no rewards….ithink there must be a mistake for u …making competetion with no exact explanation and regulations thats what i see.

  8. This app can get bored also always play everyday …getting loot and following always but no worriyng with others …making effort…that makes them abbandon base…

  9. @Gabris: So So Sorry I really mixed that up but edited it now. Please don’t hate me ๐Ÿ˜‰
    @Aditya: I mixed that up because you comment so much ๐Ÿ˜‰ Just joking, thank you for being so active here!

  10. Yea timmy and wntd to inform u abt the clash of clans official art contest winner gets 2000 gems check out fb page ํ ฝ

  11. Lol is it my name really or is it scripting which gves the name of user whos reading . Hahahah anyways wud be more than happy to spend gems wisely rather than spending it like a boss dats the secret to become a champion
