Under rating threshold (show) prismatic gems are useful if you have all 8 colors in a level and need firepower fast, and you already have a good mana supply. Also they have a pretty nice damaging ability, combined with stun, so a single fast prismatic placed in a trap can kill up to 6 monsters without any help. Yes, duals are better in terms of sheer damage, but it's specials that make prismatics shine. To use anger, use gems as bombs against the stones on the left (those that have numbers and stats on them). Be careful though, you can end up with an unkillable wave if you overdo.

Under rating threshold (show) alrighty alrighty let me explain now calm down... activating a "shrine" is something you will find in level 5 or 6 or smth, i forgot. a shrine looks like a one-block-tower with a rune on it. u have to drag a gem NOT DROP/BOMBARD to it, and it will release a special power (lightning, all gems change, etc..) rate + to help these poor innocent noobs who only play for the badge

Under rating threshold (show) When I first started playing, I thought traps are useless. Now after a few hours of gameplay, I realized that a good gem to put in the traps are either the orange (steal mp) or the green (POISON). Having a grade 3 poison trap at the start or the fork of a level really weakens the foes for your other towers to finish off.

Under rating threshold (show) @eriqire, level 78 is indeed the final level. However, completing it will unlock something extra. And it may not be the last level you can actually beat.

Under rating threshold (show) A hint for level 78: Have a high level critical hit mastery, max it out if you can, and have one or two gems that you only boost with yellow gems. You'll easily get to 100+ minimum damage with 30%+ critical chance. Then boost your gems to level 7 while still in the towers and when you get a break from monsters swarming into your stronghold, drop those gems on the GoE and watch the ending.

Under rating threshold (show) For the swarm waves, just max your Poison Mastery skill and only use traps with poison gems in them. Make sure you space them out so that if the traps miss any of the monsters, you have a couple backup traps closer to your tower. You shouldn't need more than 3 or 4 traps for most levels.

Under rating threshold (show) For Endurance Badge: Only use Orange-Red; Do not make any towers above grade 5; Start with traps at the entrance and build towers from the bottom right up then the bottom left up. This is from an old forum post. I added a Grade 3 blue at the start of the traps and a purple 6 middle right. By wave 70 something - I got the badge. Hope this helps someone.

Under rating threshold (show) I love the game, but another suggestion is that gems should not waste shots at monsters just disappearing in the tower... especially since there seems to be a slight delay before the gem resumes firing again afterwards.

Under rating threshold (show) to get the win at #78 you just need 7 grade 7 gems and bomb the central gem with them, but to defeat all the waves at #78 you need a heck of a lot of efforts, it's named "the 228 challenge" as there are 228 waves. But it has been beaten by several people already. It's just something to try at this game when you have beaten it once. (It's worth more than an imp, but it can't be recorded by the game engine)

Under rating threshold (show) Impossible badges are meant to be really challenging. This is not so challenging, but really really time consuming. Hence "Endurance Badge". Though, yeah, this should be like a "Super Endurance Badge" or something.

Under rating threshold (show) @sonofalchemy. There is a 4th and 6th levels, but they are hidden. You have to complete some of the neighboring maps under one of the different mods to unlock them. As soon as you unlock special mods, start to complete them on every beaten maps and they'll soon appears. There is 2/3 hidden maps per quarter of the complete map. This could be a useful sticky, hit + in case you think so. Cheers!

Under rating threshold (show) this might seem sarcastic, but it's honestly a fantastic feature that the game remembers on launch that i disabled the in-game sound. it's a great game, too, but this is a feature more games need to have for when i get tired of the game's sound and want to listen to bowie or buckley or boris.

Under rating threshold (show) There is one thing I'd like to tweak in this game. It's only too easy to ruin a grade 3+ dual gem by accidentally combining it with the wrong pure gem, as some of the dual colours look like unrelated pure colours e.g. lime+blue looks like pure cyan, yellow+blue looks like pure purple (which is pink, unlike the proper purple in the original Gemcraft). Obviously you can check the gem data by mousing over the gem, but it would be really helpful if dual gems could just be identified at a glance by a design feature, or if the component colours were visible instead of a blended colour.
