    GP gem values

    Could someone explain to me why it costs 500 gems in the global trade for a book of heroes but when you redeem them in GP, you only get 50. It just seems wrong

    SC doesn’t need your book.

    Contact SC here. Click here for how trophies are calculated. Click here to see how war map placement of max halls is determined. An idea to improve legends here. I wish max players had a separate loot bank as described here. Caution, I often discuss for the sake of discussion and enjoy having my opinion challenged (or approved of) even when I care little about the actual issue. My balance wish: get rid of tornado trap, make it a decoration.

    Basically, Supercell don't want you to sell items, they want you to use them. So they make the selling price low enough that most people will only sell when they cannot store any more or currently use one.

    Incidentally, the other books are more expensive in the trader, but still only sell for 50 gems.

    Thank you for the response. I’m at that stage where it almost feels like purgatory (everything upgraded except for 25 walls in TH12) and the new statue came out paired with a book of heroes and something else. Good buy, I like the statues. I have books of heroes in GP. Dang it all. Can’t use them currently. Just a little frustrating. One of the little idiosyncrasies of the game I suspect

    Yep, this, and no one really should buy a book then sell it back. Instead, they are just taking 50 gems rather than the free book they earned in game, not one they paid for.

    Youíll never get the same value back otherwise itís free gem storage and interchangeable to sell for whatever book you actually want. Itís the same for any magic item - the gems you get for selling is a fraction of the cost to buy them

    That would be great for my wallet because I have accumulated a stack of over 50k free gems on multiple accounts lol. Play a game AND make real money for the masses? If only it were so
