There are 3 shapes of gems you can get. They are Triangle, Square and Diamond. They provide the following stats:

  • Flat HP
  • Flat Attack
  • Flat Defense
  • Flat Recovery
  • % Hp
  • % Attack
  • % Defense
  • % Recovery

It is recommended to use flat gems for 3★ or lower. Also, lucia_none from Reddit found the sweet spot for the Flat vs Percentage comparison when gems are at +12.

flat-vs-percentage

To sum it up for 3★/4★/5★ gems:

  • For base hp larger than 19000, use %. Otherwise, use flat hp.
  • For base attack/defense/recovery larger than 1100, use %. Otherwise, use flat attack/defense/recovery.

That also means you will be using flat gems for a good while in the beginning stages of the game. Until you get many 5★/6★ astromons, percentage gems won’t come to play.

Gem Slots

Not all astromon will have the same gem slots. Some will have 2 triangles and a diamond. While some others have 2 diamonds and a square. It really all depends on astromon. Be sure to check what gem slots they have before farming for it.

There are currently 11 types of gems available in the game. The difficulty also dictates which gem grade you can get.

  • Normal – 1★/2★
  • Hard – 2★/3★

Getting Gems

There are a few methods to obtain the gems. Aside from regular maps and the Golem Dungeon, you can also obtain good gems from the Shady Shop. For the Golem Dungeon, you can expect this to get higher grade games at B7 and up.

Upgrading Gems

monster-super-league-gem-upgrade

Each time you upgrade a gem, the stats/percentage goes up. At certain intervals, you get bonus sub stats (random) added.

  • +3
  • +6
  • +9
  • +12

All 4 intervals will provide an additional bonus stat. If there is a substat already present while you upgrade at these intervals, it will boost a random substat.

Equip/Unequip Gems

Equipping a gem cost no gold at all. However, unequipping gems will cost gold. Also be sure to unequip gems you want to keep. Otherwise, it will be lost forever if you choose to replace it with a brand new gem.
