I usually get around 8-12 gems per day if you log on every now and than... but yeah, I usually only get low tier armor, weapons, and most of the time the same helmet. I doubt the cost will be changed though. This is another thing that seems on 'par' if you aren't willing to spend some money.
there should be many other ways to earn gems other than fishing, doing quests, watching ads, daily bonuses. I think there should be a place where people can trade too like maybe add a new server/game mode called trade tables in which people put their offerd on tbe table and wait for interested buyers and negotiate until the offers are okay or equal, that way we players could sell our armor and other stuff that we have for something we really need, like fkr example u got 2 same armors u could sell the other one for a sword or shield instead of using holy crabs (the ones in pixel survival 2) where we need to use coins :/ I hope cowbeans come here and consider this idea
Id prefer having the right to offer swords, armors nd other stuff for something we need like a better sword than having to buy them with coins or diamonds .-. That has been used in Pixel Survival 2 in which we use coins to trade through the use of holy crabs and also... it took me so much time trying to sell something in that game but every people who wants to buy what i sell keeps getting blocked... in other words they havent burn down that pile of wood which is frustrating
