Similar to most other free mobile games, Niantic's version of the Monster Hunter series, called Monster Hunter Now, does not shy away from requesting money from players through microtransactions. It appears that players are required to contribute a few dollars if they wish to acquire one of the main currencies of the mobile game: gemstones. By utilizing these gemstones, Monster Hunter Now players can double their material rewards at the end of a hunting quest and purchase useful items from the store, such as potions, color balls, and temporary exploration aids that enhance the player's range of action.
In the absence of access to potions, players will be unable to heal themselves after a challenging battle and will need to wait for their health to slowly regenerate on its own before engaging in another encounter with a monster. This guide will elucidate on methods to obtain more gemstones in Monster Hunter Now.
How to Get More Gems in Monster Hunter Now
Game Rant was granted early access to Monster Hunter Now, and within a few days, we managed to reach HR (Hunter Rank) 23 and are currently in the 6th chapter of the storyline. During this time, the game has only provided us with 500 gemstones for free, and that was all. We are uncertain if the game will reward players with complimentary gemstones upon reaching certain HR milestones or completing later chapters. For now, it appears that the sole means of obtaining additional gemstones beyond the initial ones is by purchasing them with real money in the in-game shop.
Should You Buy Gems?
Upon visiting the store, players should come across the "one-time" Starter Pack. Priced at $6.99, the package includes 1000 gemstones, 3 potions, 2 exploration droplets, and 3 color balls. Honestly, it's not a bad deal considering that purchasing 1000 gemstones typically costs around $7. Another offer currently available is the Release Celebration Pass, which grants players a remarkable 2000 gemstones spread over a month, all for just $8.99. The decision to make the purchase or not rests with the players.
And for players who simply wish to purchase gemstones without any additional frills, they can scroll to the bottom of the store to check the available options, which are as follows:
- 300 Gems - $1.99
- 750 Gems - $4.99
- 2250 Gems - $14.99
