Using Gems in Order And Chaos Online: A Beginning

Order and Chaos Online uses a gem system to strengthen equipment. This is a largely missunderstood part of the game. I am of the mind that if you are not strong enough to complete dungeons at your level, then adding gems is a good idea.

Many people wait to put in gems until they get one of their epic sets. It doesn't matter when you do it, but you will have to do it at some point.

Gems are classified by colors. Each piece of gear has three slots. The color of the slot indicates which color gem you can put in the slot.

To embed the first gem into a piece of gear you will have to spend 150 gold to unlock the first slot.

Then one driling cone to unlock the second slot, and three drilling cones to unlock the last slot.

Unlocking slots and embeding gems into gear is done at the gem merchant, located in Greenmont. It is in the same area as the stables.

If you need to remove a gem then you use removal pliers.

How To Get Level 1, 2, 3 and 4 Gems

There are many different level gems in the game, and many ways to get them. This commentary will only cover the first four levels of gems.

A level one gem drops in MZL and AGL, can be bought at a gem vendor and can be bought on the auction house.

You can not buy anything but a level one gem from the gem vendors.

To get a level two gem you can wait for one to drop in the dungeons, buy one on the auction house or combine three level one gems.

To combine gems you go to the gem house. You do not have to pay runes to combine gems.

However, a gem has a certain percentage which represents the chance you have at making the gem. You can pay runes to increase this percentages.

Sometimes when you try to make a gem, it fails and you are left with lesser gems.

Level three gems can be won as drops or made by combining three level two gems. There are different types of level three gems.

Level four gems are made by combining three level three gems. Some higher level gems are won in festivals or gotten in other manners.

There are gems sold for ignots at Mist Traders Base Camp, which offer different statistics than level fours you make. Level six gems can be won by completing certain quests.

Removing A Gem

If you want to remove a gem from a piece of gear then you go back to the gem merchant in greenmont and spend removal pliers to take the gems out.

Before you buy or sell any gems you need to decide which gems you want to use. Your class will determine which gems are best for you. There is some variation and choice within class. For example some monks like to go heavy on spell haste, while others go heavy on spell crit.

It is important to realize that casters have different gems than mele. Haste is not for casters, but spell haste is. Crit is not for casters, but spell crit is. Make sure you embed the right gems or you might do yourself a disservice.

What's That Gem?

The table below is a description of gems in Order and Chaos Online. It covers the added attributes, and it also describes the color and level of the gem.

Many pieces of gear can take a red, blue and green gem. Don't just jump to conclusions though, some gear may have two green slots, a red slot and no blue slot.

To become truly powerful you need to plan out which gems you want to embed. Use drilling cones with care.

Gemming gear is a big decision, which doesn't have to use real money, but if you choose the wrong gems it might.

Remember, if you really want to, you can buy level three gems on the Nick Shop. I will be honest that I have bought a few level three.

When they go on sale, it is a good time to jump on them. I have a level three in almost every slot, and I have only bought three. It is very possible to do this without money if you are patient. I am currently saving my level four gems for something new and working to obtain higher level gems.

I don't recommend putting level one or two gems in your gear. If you really want to get the edge up then you want to have AT LEAST level three gems, and if you can try for level four gems than do it.

Go Get Gemmed Out

Those are the basics of gems. You are sure to learn more about it in game, and with experience. Do not skip this part of the game.

Even if you are not gemming right away, save every gem that you will use for your class.

When you choose your gems consider the purpouse of the piece of gear. A dungeon set will most likely be gemmed differently than a PVP set.

Don't sell a gem that you think you need for your class. I don't care how desperate you are.

There are lots of ways to make gold, but gems are much harder to come by.

Gems make you stronger and more powerful in both PvP and PvE, so use them wisely and often.

Thanks for your write ups, I started a week ago & uninstalled after seeing comments that the game is only pay2win & runes must be bought. I don't mind waiting extra time if it means not having to pay :)

It can be pay to win. I just looked to see what I have spent. My total spent in the past year is $63 US dollars. I spent like $12 bucks a month on WOW. Honestly, this game can be free, and/or a lot cheaper. If you want to be uber special overnight, sure pay to win. However, I get a certain satisfaction and respect for being play to win. Most of my server mates know I spend very little money and treat me with the same reverance and respect as players who are pay to win epic. If you understand what you are doing, you can get very far with very little money. I am glad you are giving it another chance. If you have questions or problems, let me know. I will try to keep the site updated and answer all questions. I am also looking for more topics to write about. Good luck.

What is the best gem for divine monk (healer)?

TheDragonBringer profile image

TheDragonBringer 21 months ago Author

By best do you mean lvl or type? It also depends if you are pvp or pve. For my lvl 70 devine monk, the first gems I got were healing gems. If you are PVP then healing gems are your blue slots. If you are PVP then you want some resilience gems. Only put resilience gems in your PVP gear and only put healing gems in PVE. For green I go with spell haste first, when you feel you have enough then you may want some spell crit. Some PvP devine healers are doing dodge gems in PvP gear. For red, you want wisdom for PVE. Some PVP players are getting the block gems from mist trader, they are red slots.

Level 6 gems, and achievement gems are the best, but level 3s and 4s can make you pretty powerful, esspecially if you have skill. The best gem for you depends where you are at in the game. Think about where you are struggling. When your tank or team dies why is it? Healing gems give bigger heals, and wisdom gives more mana. Spell haste makes your casting time faster. Spell crit, does effect heal crits. Personally, I like healing gems first, bigger heals means spending less mana, but you have to figure out which astpect your healing style needs the most.

Hi there, OAC is my first MMO so your posts have been super helpful for me. I was wondering about the chance rate when gemming, does it go up and down? I've been at 40% chance for almost a week, and really don't want to spend runes for that right now. Thanks!

The percentages change depending on what level of gem you are making. I hate to say it, but there are only two ways to make high level gems. One is to run dungeons that drop them. Agl is the easiest, but higher dungeons drop them more often. As far as spending runes, a majority of my level four and five gems where obtained by spending runes to increase the chance, and even then it is scetchy. If you can, save your high level gems for s3 or t4. The cost to remove high level gems is off the chart. It is something I hope gameloft will address in their next major update.

I put a winter candy in my s3 chest was that the right idea? Then i used a lvl4 haste gem (important for sins) as well, including spell crit and crit, which apparently can be both used on sin gear. I also used one healing power gem, to add extra healing on my smoke bomb? Did i gem my s3 properly? Plz tell me

Generally yes. I do know good warriors and rangers who use healing germs. Are you pvp? How much more healing does it do? In pvp a ressilience gem is generally better than a healing gem. However, i have seen those extra heals trick other players, simply because they don't expect it. For the most part your doing well. You want those high lvl gems. One word of caution, recently there was a string of bans. Players who dueped on oac were banned. Now, some claim they didn't bupe, but received a dupped item. Its now a rummor, which I hate. We have no idea if that is true. Winter gems were one item that was dupped, so were stockings and stars tho, and no one got banned for that. My policy is this, only take popularly dupped items if i know they were obtained legitly. Keep it up with high level gems, try for those lvl 5 gems where possible. It's worth agl just to get a chance at one.
