Gems and Plugins
Users are able to unlock Gem Plugins once their Sneakers reach a certain level, and are able to enhance their Sneaker Attributes by inserting the corresponding Gems into the unlocked Plugins (i.e. only Power Gems can be placed into Power Plugins). There are four types of Gems, with each Gem representing an Attribute:
- 1.Red: Power
- 2.Yellow: Luck
- 3.Green: Agility
- 4.Blue: Armor
By heading to the Upgrade tab under the Gems section, users can upgrade their Gems by burning APE and combining 3 Gems of the same level and type to a higher level (i.e three Level-1 Power Gems to one Level-2 Power Gem). BAPE will also be required to upgrade a Gem from Level 4 onward.
Note: Low-level Gems Upgrade has a chance to fail.
Warning: There is a certain percentage of Gem upgrades that can fail from Level 1 - 5, if the upgrade fails, users will lose their Gems.
Awakening Effect: Gem boosts the Base Attribute of the Sneaker.
i.e. Level 2 Power Gem will boost a Level 0 Sneaker with 5 Base Power is: 5 (Sneaker Attribute) + 5 x 40% (Gem Awakening Effect to Sneaker Attribute) + 8 (Gem Attribute) = 15.
A Sneaker has four different Plugins, identified by colors that match a Gem type. Users insert Gems into the Plugin to boost the Sneaker's Attributes. One Plugin is unlocked each time the Sneaker reaches level 5, 10, 15, and 20 respectively. Higher Plugin rarity will give an extra boost to the inserted Gem's Attribute.
Users will be able to see the Plugin type without unlocking the Plugin, but NOT the Plugin rarity, which is determined by the Sneaker's rarity:
