A Gem Lode is a tile which can be gathered to obtain Gems, similar to gathering other resources.
Unlike other resource tiles, Gem Lodes spawn in intervals, with a few minutes in between the low levels, and over an hour between Level 4 and 5. Gathering the Lodes, or leaving them partly gathered, has no effect on the spawn rate.
A large number of Level 1 Lodes will spawn. The number of Lodes that spawn, decreases with each Level. Gem Lodes Levels 1-4 will spawn up to three times. Level 5 Gems Lodes, only spawn twice.
Kingdom Clash Rewards
After KvK, Gem Lodes spawn every 6 hours, starting with Level 1 Lodes, and increasing up to Level 5, in the winning Kingdom.
If only two Kingdoms have competed against each other (1 vs 1), Gem Lodes will only spawn in Levels 1-2, throughout the defeated Kingdom.
If three or four Kingdoms have competed against each other, Gem Lodes will spawn in Levels 1-4 throughout the defeated Kingdoms. The exact Level of the Gem Lodes depends on the number of Kingdoms participating in KvK, and their Rank in the event.
