Here's our guide that should give you more closure on what tactics to use in the game to set up your sneaker.
First of all, you need to unlock your socket to place a gem inside. Sockets can be unlocked after reaching 15, 20, 25 and 30 levels.
Sockets are located in a sneaker card when you click on a sneaker:
Does a gem require a specific socket type?
No. You can use any socket for any type of gem you have.
The cost of unlocking a socket for each sneaker quality type is different and also depends on KCAL's current market price. That way we can ensure a stable price in fiat equivalent and provide additional support for the game economy.
Once a gem is inserted, it cannot be taken out of the sneaker, it can only be replaced with a new one. The previous gem will be destroyed.
Gem is an awesome way to boost your sneaker: you can improve the weaknesses or enhance the strengths of your sneaker. So, don't forget to use this opportunity to enhance your gaming experience.
Adds an additional amount of activity to the activity attribute of your sneaker.
The more activity you have — the more income in KCAL you have.
Adds an additional amount of balance to the balance attribute of your sneaker.
The more balance you have — the more the burning reward for your sneaker is.
Adds an additional amount of resistance to the resistance attribute of your sneaker.
The more resistence you have — the less the repairement of you sneaker costs.
Adds an additional amount of luck to the luck attribute of your sneaker.
The more luck you have — the more chances you have to find a chest during a run.
A rare gem that has two random stats. This gem can be acquired by merging two gems.
Gems have 6 levels. The higher the level the greater the number of additional attributes. Diamond receives an increase for both stats at the same time.
Each sneaker rarity type has its maximum level of a gem that can be placed in it:
Level 1 gems can not be sold on the market, meanwhile, they can be sold inserted in a sneaker.
You can combine two gems for a chance to get a gem of a higher level. It might take several attempts since there's always a 1%-20% probability to get a gem of the same level, in rare cases, you can get a gem with a level lower. Sometimes such a merge can end up in receiving a Diamond!
All levels can be merged among themselves. Here's the table to simplify and show the simplest way to get a gem a level higher:
The cost of a single merge attempt depends on the level of both gems and a number of stats (one — Alexandrite, Sapphire, Ruby, Limonite; two — Diamond), the cost per merge starts from 20 KCAL and also depends on KCAL's current market price. That way we can ensure a stable price in fiat equivalent and provide additional support for the game economy.
Can I burn a sneaker with a gem inside?
Yes, you can. But please pay attention that every gem inserted will be destroyed. It makes sense to burn a sneaker with a gem inserted only if it's the Sapphire gem that adds additional balance stats.
There are 13 levels of chests that you can get during your activity session. Chests contain KCAL tokens and/or Level 1 Gems.
The bigger the level of a chest — the bigger the chance to get a gem.
It takes a different amount of time and KCAL tokens to open a chest: it depends on the chest level. The price also depends on KCAL's current market price. That way we can ensure a stable price in fiat equivalent and provide additional support for the game economy.
How many unopened chests a sneaker can have?
Maximum of 4. Only unopened chests count, there are no other limitations.
