Equipping/Unequipping Gems: Players may equip/unequip the gems they have in their inventory by simply clicking on the + or - inside the gem tab next to the tower profile. When the player clicks on the + sign, a drop down menu showcasing the players current gem inventory will appear and the player may select the gem they wish to equip. Unequipping a gem consists of clicking on the - next to the gem currently equipped (Please note that unequipping a gem will result in a loss of that gems effects on the tower).
System towers are unable to be equipped with any gems. Gem Drop Rate:
