The Purple Gem is a type of gem that has been added in Gemcraft Chapter 1.

Effect in Tower: 

  • Gemcraft 1 - Chance of lowering target armor by 1 point.
  • Gemcraft 0 - Chance of lowering target armor by 1 point.
  • Gemcraft Labyrinth - Reduces the targets armor by a value (e.g 0.7, 2, 1.5, etc.)
  • Gemcraft Chasing Shadows - Same as Labyrinth.

Effect in Trap:

  • Gemcraft 0 - Chance of lowering target armor by 3 points.
  • Gemcraft Labyrinth - Reduces the targets armor by a value, but in a trap, the value is higher.
  • Gemcraft Chasing Shadows - Same as Labyrinth

Strategies:

Purple gems should be used on monsters with high defense (e.g Armored Waves, Shadows, Heavily Angered waves, etc.)


Gemcraft Chapter 1Edit

In Gemcraft Chapter 1, the purple gems have a basic function - they deal some damage, while having a chance of lowering the targets armor by 1

Gemcraft Chapter 0Edit

In Gemcraft Chapter 0, the purple gems in towers have the exact same function as in Chapter 1, but in traps they maintain the % (Not if you upgrade Trap Specials, as with this the % also increases) and decreases armor to 3

Gemcraft LabyrinthEdit

In Gemcraft Labyrinth, the purple gems have changed a bit. Instead of the gems having a chance to reduce armor, now they have a certain chance to reduce armor, even if it is decimal. EXAMPLE BELOW!

So let us assume that with each hit, the monster's armor drops by 0.7.


1 Hit - 0.7 - 0 armor points reduced                                   Now it's all good with the power of
2 Hits - 1.4 - 1 armor point reduced                               rounding; everything is a bit more exact!
3 Hits - 2.1 - 2 armor points reduced
4 Hits - 2.8 - 2 armor points reduced
5 Hits - 3.5 - 3 armor points reduced
10 Hits - 7 - 7 armor points reduced
25 Hits - 17.5 - 17 armor points reduced
50 Hits - 35 - 35 armor points reduced


Gemcraft Chapter 2Edit

The purple gem has the same attributes as the purple gem in Gemcraft Labyrinth.

Trivia  Edit

  • You can defeat shadows without the purple gem; you just need lots and lots of power!
  • Purple Gems shoot faster than any other gem.
  • Very useful in early-mid game on Chasing Shadows (Specially on non-pouch players)
