Gem Shop priorities explained in-depth (What to buy first) » Idleon (2024)

Contents Show

In a game like Idleon, the Gem Shop is the most important factor when it comes to speeding up your progress and making the game much easier to manage.

However, gems are fairly rare to come by unless you pay for them, so it is important to know what items you should buy first and which items are not worth their weight in gems.

This guide will go over each worthwhile item in the shop and also explain why some items are/are not worth getting from the Gem Shop.

This table below also shows all the items in the gem shop alongside their rank and price, which you can easily sort, search and filter through by pressing on the table headers.

A+ and A are items you should certainly buy, while items from D to F are more geared towards high spenders and whales, if worth buying at all.

Best Gem Shop items to buy first in World 1

The first two mechanics you encounter in the game is the anvil and the forge that are used to generate crafting materials, craft items and smelt ores.

These three mechanics are used for the entirety of the game and it is a good idea to boost them as much as possible as soon as possible.

You can do this by buying the Infinity Hammer and a few Brimstone Forge Slots (start with one, buy more as you through World 2 and 3).

Early & Late Game

Another important gem shop upgrade that is one of the most important upgrades and will be useful for the entirety of the game are extra card slots.

You start the game with 4 card slots and you can buy up to 4 more slots. This means you can have 8 different cards equipped at once and each of them will give amazing bonuses.

You should definitely buy all 4 slots, as you get more, increasingly powerful cards to use, your progress will speed up exponentially.

Early Game

Once you get a few days or weeks into the game, you will start to notice that your storage space is very limited in comparison to the amount of different items that drop in World 1.

To make the game less frustrating, it’s a good idea to buy some storage and bag slots as well as increased carry capacity.

However, all these gem shop upgrades have many tiers, so you should only buy a few at first and buy more as you progress and start running out of room once again, towards World 2.

It is good to note that the carry capacity increases how many of a single item you can have in one bag slot at a time.

You can eventually craft increased carry capacity upgrades from the anvil for free, so this is not a must buy in the early game, but makes claiming AFK gains a lot easier.

The Storage Chest can have infinite quantity in a single slot and you get 9 new slots for every Storage Chest Space upgrade, which is why it is the best storage upgrade.

Note about ‘More Storage Space’

Gem Shop priorities explained in-depth (What to buy first) » Idleon (140)

It is good to note that there is also a new ‘More Storage Space’ -upgrade, but it is generally more expensive for less storage slots, so it should be bought later on in the game as you end up needing more slots in World 4 and up.

Finally a few more great upgrades to consider while still in World 1 and starting out the grind are the food slots, teleports and minigames.

First, the food slots are a great way to increase survivability, as you can equip different food stacks and this get 100% AFK gains from areas you wouldn’t survive at without food. You should buy both food slots eventually, but even one helps early on.

Early Game

If you run out of food while AFK (because you are in a too high-level area), your AFK Gains are cut drastically and you will lose out on a lot of XP and loot.

Finally the teleport and minigame upgrades are often scrutinized, but especially early game they are game changers.

First off, the Daily Teleports will give +7 free teleports anywhere in the World Map every day and even remain for 4 days if you don’t use them at once.

Once you notice how slow walking between maps is, you will never move anywhere without teleporting and it will feel painful if you run out of them. This is why you should buy at least one to start off, then more as you unlock more Worlds and maps to teleport between.

A few in early game, more later if needed.

When it comes to minigames, they’re very useful for leveling up skills and gathering resources early on, but they should not be on the top of the gem shop priority list, as the previously mentioned items are more useful.

Also, the Gem Shop items for World 2 are also much more important than teleports or minigame plays, so keep that in mind before buying up too many of these resources.

Best Gem Shop items to get in World 2

Now that you have gotten into the groove and beaten Amarok, you find yourself in World 2 with a lot of new mechanics, which can be fairly overwhelming.

However, World 2 also introduces one of the most important features in Idleon which is Alchemy, as it will end up giving insane bonuses as you keep upgrading it.

Unsurprisingly, Alchemy also has plenty of upgrades to buy from the gem shop, but only one of them is a must buy instantly, which is the first Bleach Liquid Cauldron.

#2 – 500
#3 – 500
Total:
1,500 for 3 cauldrons
Buy 1 as soon as you enter World 2. Buy the rest once you unlock more bubbles.

The reason why it is so important to upgrade this is because you will need A LOT of the first liquid (Water Droplets) for crafting, bubble upgrades, cauldron upgrades, vial upgrades and buying obols.

You unlock the other two cauldrons by reaching level 20 and 75 in alchemy on any character, so you should only buy the upgrades for those once you actually unlock the cauldrons.

Other than the cauldron, you should focus on improving the previously mentioned upgrades.

Two other new upgrades you might want to think about in World 2 are the Ivory Bubble Cauldrons and Weekly Dungeon Boosters. These two are not as important, but they speed up progress quite a bit.

The Ivory Bubble Cauldrons make it easier to unlock new bubbles in the Brewing tab in alchemy, but those are only useful once you have tons of materials and liquids to use in upgrading those bubbles.

Buy 3 for weekly Happy Hour

The weekly dungeon boosters could already be bought in World 1, but they’re not as crucial. However, Party Dungeons give decent buffs and rings eventually, so it is a good idea to take advantage of the weekly 20x multiplier Happy Hour boosted run.

This means if you buy 3 of the Weekly Dungeon Booster upgrade from the Gem Shop, you will have at least 20 boosted runs each week to be able to use them in a single run once a week, getting tons of Flurbos and dungeon levels.

Once you unlock the Vacuous Tissue prayer in World 3, you will be able to take this even further and use 40 tickets in a single weekly happy hour run.

Finally, it is important to mention that Sigils are unlocked in the Alchemy section of World 2, but only once you reach World 4, so you don’t need to worry about them yet.

High priority Gem Shop items in World 3

Now you’re getting in the deep end, as World 3 unlocks the biggest improvements to your progression with building, cogs, combustion, library, trapping, prayers and the Death Note.

If you thought World 2 was overwhelming, it’s not getting any easier, but all the new functionality makes the rest of the game much easier.

The most useful new feature in World 3 is the 3D printer, which allows you to generate selected resources every hour, so you don’t need to leave a character AFK to collect them.

This is why it is extremely important to purchase the Crystal 3D Printer gem shop upgrade, which allows you to print 2 different items per character, instead of just one.

This means if you could normally be printing a total of 5 resources on 5 characters, with this upgrade you could now print a total 10 different (or same) resources on those characters.

ImageNameExplanationPriceWhen to buy
Gem Shop priorities explained in-depth (What to buy first) » Idleon (152)Crystal 3D PrinterUnlock second printer chamber for all characters.875As soon as you enter World 3

It is also possible to purchase more sample spaces for the printer, but those are not too useful as you can just create a new sample for free and replace any existing ones.

Once you upgraded the printer, there is another useful upgrade to buy from the gem shop which is the Tower Building Slots.

These slots allow you to upgrade more towers at once and since there are so many towers to upgrade to high levels, it is very useful to be able to build more simultaneously.

If you are not close to World 4 or bought important W4 upgrades already.

Even if you unlock all the building slots, you will be upgrading the towers for a looong time, even once you reach World 5 and beyond, so it is definitely worth it if you wish to save time.

However, World 4 comes with many important purchases which are more important to unlock first, so if you don’t have many gems and are about to reach the World 3 boss, it might be better to save gems and buy this one later.

Best Gem Shop items in World 4

World 4 is a cakewalk in terms of the learning curve in comparison to World 2 and 3, but it also comes with a lot of expensive but useless Gem Shop upgrades, so it is important to know what to spend your hard earned gems on.

While the Lab is important, the Kitchen is the most important source of improvements to all stats and factors in Legends of Idleon, which is why it should be upgraded first.

To do that, you can buy the Richelin Kitchen upgrades. However, you should only buy as many of them as you have unlocked kitchens, so start off with just 1 or 2.

Buy one or two when entering World 4, get the rest once you unlock more kitchens.

After the kitchen, it is necessary to level up your pets as well as the lab. These two features have two gem shop upgrades that are above the rest and should be purchased after the kitchen upgrade.

The first one is the Royal Egg Cap, which give 1.1x new pet breeding chance per purchase, which adds up to 1.5x with all 5 purchases, which is a significant upgrade when it comes to hatching eggs.

The other important upgrade is the Mainframe Jewel, which gives you a random Mainframe Jewel until you own all 18 of them.

While you can get one per week ‘for free’, they require so many advanced materials that it will take ages to unlock them all manually.

On top of that, the Mainframe Jewels give such massive bonuses that it is extremely beneficial to unlock them via gems as soon as possible.

Finally there are a few more upgrades you might want to consider at this point, once you have acquired the Jewels, which consist of Souped Up Tube, Sigil Supercharge and more storage slots.

The first one being Souped Up Tube, which doubles lab experience and increases line width, making Mainframe Jewels easier to reach. This is not necessary but helps progress with the lab a lot faster.

Once you run out of storage space in World 4 and have all other Storage Upgrades

Sigil Supercharge boosts sigils in the World 2 alchemy section, which take so long to unlock that boosting them by 200% is not a bad idea if you have the extra gems, but it is extremely expensive relative to the value of the boost. This high cost to value ratio is the reason we ranked it to C priority instead of higher.

Finally, since you are not at World 4, you are most likely running out of Storage Chest slots again, so it might be a good idea to finally invest a few gems into ‘More Storage Space’ gem shop upgrade which can provide up to 90 additional storage slots.

This storage upgrade costs more and gives less slots than the original storage slot upgrade, which is why this should be the last one to buy if you need more storage space.

Best way to spend gems in World 5

World 5 is designed to add tons of very helpful boosts to everything, while being very passive in its skills. This means you just need to wait and good things will come.

This is also why there’s nothing new that you really need to be splurging gems on, unless you have tons of extra gems and have nothing left to upgrade from previous worlds.

Sailing is definitely the most important skill in World 5, as the artifacts you gain from it provide immense bonuses, which is also why it is a good idea to invest in Chest Sluggos, to be able to collect more chests at once, if you don’t always log in to collect them in time.

The more chests you collect, the faster you can upgrade your ships, making you collect chests even faster and getting those precious artifacts faster.

Divinity Sparkie and Lava Sprouts help boost Divinity gains and Gaming points, but they’re not that necessary if you don’t have excess gems to spend.

However, if you can afford them, they provide nice permanent bonuses that will speed up your progress in those skills by a significant margin.

The Miracle Chest can help get the ancient artifacts faster, but it’s extremely expensive for the low chance of later artifacts, so it’s really not worth the price due to the new Ancient Artifact item, which is guaranteed to give you an artifact and even upgrade existing ones to Ancient.

While they are very expensive, they’re definitely worth the price as sailing progression gets very slow later on and getting the final artifacts can be a pain.

Low Priorities Explained — What not to buy!

All the Gem Shop items we ranked at A+, A, or B have been explained in detail in the paragraphs above.

However this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t buy any lower priority upgrades, it just means they’re not usually worth it for free-to-play players or low-spenders.

If you’re a high-spender, there are only very few upgrades that would not provide any value.
