Obstacles don’t drop Gems randomly

As we all know, we can get Gems in Clash of Clans by removing obstacles like trees, trunks and bushes.

I found a gem in the tree!

Sometimes we can find 5 gems from the tree and even 6 gems from the trunk but sometimes we just earn EXP. Is that random? No! It follows this certain sequence:


No matter what obstacles you remove, the number of Gems drop from them will always follow the sequence above.

We can get new obstacle after every 8 hours, It means there are total 21 obstacles respawn on your land per week. So you can get up to 45 Gems every week. Normally, we have a Gem Box (25 Gems) every 2 weeks. It means you can earn up to 45×4 + 25×2 = 230 Gems every month.

    If I don’t clear and let it stay there, will I get more than 1 gem box?

    • Will Potter

      No, you just can have 1 Gem Box at a time!

      • Braden Salazar

        that’s not true I have had 5 at a time and waited to do them all together

    Well actually it’s an average two weeks wait for a gem box so you can actually get them earlier

    • Will Potter

      Ya right. Sometimes I can see a new Gem Box after just 1 week.

  • Wait, so that’s about 9 months of removing obstacles for the 5th builder, not counting achievments? >.>

    • Will Potter

      9 months are acceptable IMO. I have been playing this game for a few years, so… xD
