Gemcraft CS: Crusade for a Grade 100 Gem

Hi, I am level 3142, and I am going to be the first to get a grade 100 gem.

How did I get specs obscenely high? Well, thanks to this dude over here...

One important thing to note is how to create dual gems. Adding two grade one's them spamming U is losing about 33% special power.

Optimal creation is a G1 of both, combine, make a G2 of each, add one pure to each dual, combine the G3s, duplicate, and repeat with pure G4s, duplicate the 6, etc.

here is the difference at g34:
Regular creation:

Special Mix:

Note that the hit count is the same, and the cost to duplicate is the same. This is a difference of 32.9%, and this difference keeps rising at higher levels. It's only a 16% difference at grade 6. It takes a decent amount of time, but it is worth it at ultimate grades (45+).


I now have huge specs. It takes me about 20-30 seconds real life time to get +1 grade. So a minute before +2(needed if want extra specs). I estimate my specs to be about 80% higher than normal, at least blood is.

PS- Level 46 amps got the spec treatment too, they are wicked.

If this doesn't sing true to the +specs by that method I don't know what does. BTW, can I be called God yet?

Glad I could be of assistance. unfortunately my tactic doesn't become useful til grade 40, which still takes me around 75 waves. I can barely get a 50 by 200, but I'll get there.

Best of luck to you in your noble endeavors.

Yeah, but at around G36 it becomes really, really noticeable, in the fact that at that point, I could still do 8 upgrades at a time hehe.

Now, specs are really slowing per upgrade, but amazingly amps are the thing helping me keep up. Specs afaik increase at about 1.4x per level from my observance, speed by about 1.25x, so that's about x1.75. Amps double my blood, or even more, because they also add mana to the gem which is thus amped by the doubled blood spec. Hehehe. Allowing me to keep up yeah. I'm getting about 550 quadrillion mana per frame. 2 more upgrades(1 with the spec thingy,) after I get ~450 quintillion mana to upgrade, will probably then give me 1 quintillion per frame.

Epicsauce. To get G66 I will go into the E21 range lol.

The mana required for a G60 versus G100 is a 1.1e12 factor difference. I feel like it would take hours for the last upgrade alone, but I may be wrong. How long did that 60 take?

The 60 took about an hour.

In game time, if it's the same as GC0 which was around 25-30 seconds per wave, only 5 minutes. Lol!

Yeah, grade 100 requires somewhere around 1E30 mana.

Let's calculate the mana I earn per second(assuming enough monsters for chaining)

Uh.....

108,545,461,088,956.3 Mana * 16,368 Chain Hits * 91,764.36 Shots Per Second

This is crazy.

It equals: 1.6303518e+23

In other words, 160 hextillion mana per second.

Clearly something's wrong, as I'm getting 4.8 quintillion(4.8E18) mana per frame. Times 30 frames per second, that's 144 quintillion per second. I don't think having only 60% of the possible amount of chain hits accounts for 1/1000th the mana per second.

Strange.

hits per second are cut to one hit per frame or so.

Cannot be...

1.08E14 * 16368 * 30 = 5.303232e+19

That's 50 quadrillion per frame. I'm getting 5500 quadrillion per frame(5.5 quintillion) or I did at lvl 66 gem xD it's now 68. I think it's more like a limit on hits per frame yeah, but it isn't one. And I think that limit goes up the laggier it gets, or so it seems. I can't be gaining more and more mana just because of +1-2 monsters every 3 frames. I gain too much. Laggier it gets the more time it has to process hits. I think.

Anyway, I need 2.16 E22 mana to get Grade 70. I'm at 4E21, and it's only wave 18.5 I can make it before wave 21. Then I am superepic4life. C:
