Under rating threshold (show) The "This is the game that never ends" Should be an impossible badge in so many ways I don't know where to start.

Under rating threshold (show) I love how Greg acknowledges how insanely long it takes to complete this one...and yet when Labyrinth came around, he still made beating it only a hard badge....with 169 damn levels.. The Gemcraft series is one of my favorites series...but all the badges in every game are just nuts. I mean in number one you have to reach level 30 just for a medium. Both this and 3 need to be impossibles. I don't know why he decided to be so hardcore with the badges in this series but, damn.

Under rating threshold (show) It's worth noting that combining a mid-grade or high-grade gem (3-5 or higher) with a low-grade gem (1-2) increases the stats of the gem without increasing its grade. It's a cheap way to increase the potency of a gem without sacrificing loads of mana on pricy grade-ups. Doing this many, many times to one gem effectively creates a "super gem," capable of fending off an entire level's worth of enemies by itself. =P

Under rating threshold (show) The only experience gain you get from replaying levels is if you beat your previous score. In other words, if you get 10,000 on the first try and 11,000 on the next, you experience only goes up 1000 after the second try.

Under rating threshold (show) Note: The experience system in Gemcraft works based on your HIGHEST score in each mode of each level. For example, let's say your high scores in a level are currently 400k in Normal, 500k in Heroic, and 600k in Arcane. If you redid all these modes and got 600k on all of them, you would only get 200k exp on Normal, because your new score is only 200k above your last high score. Likewise, you would get 100k exp for Heroic, and no exp for Arcane because you didn't beat your high score. In other words, it is almost always better to complete new modes and levels than to redo old ones for better scores.

Under rating threshold (show) The best way to go is maximizing dual gems and using nothing but dual gems in every level. Trust me, I suddenly started doing WAY better.

Under rating threshold (show) Reverse, it's easy to explain - Kongregate has a hard cap on most highscores preset by admins/mods, and they sometimes epicly fail at determining the cap. So your score will get deleted as well :(

Under rating threshold (show) I have to say, this has got to be one of the best series of games in the "upgrade" category I've played in a long time. The attention to detail and great system in place for combinations and just the bare backbone solid system powering this game. Cheers.

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) Tip 1. Don't rush trying to combine gems that are already in towers, try combine them in your inventory, then change it after the wave. Tip 2. Look at the abilities for all your gems, good combinations are, Poison and Shock(Poison 1st), or freeze and splash damage. Tip 3. Don't use Gem Bombs or Shrines unless you have 100- mana, wasting a gem may kill you in the long shot. Tip 4. Traps are only good in a few situations. 1. if you have blue gems OR vs arcane guardians CYAN which can easily permanently 'shock' him forever. 2. If its a swarm level (use red/green) + This comment to keep it alive!

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.
