Monster Legends is a mobile multiplayer role-playing game that you can play for free on both iOS and Android. The game is free to download and play, and you can technically play as much as you want without paying any money. Social Point, the developer of the game, is able to offer the game in this free-to-play format by selling a type of currency called gems, which can be purchased with real money (it would charged to your credit card).

There are technically two types of in-game currency, gold and gems, but gems are tremendously useful. You can use gems to buy powerful monsters and speed up things that would normally take a long time, so most cheats and exploits, as well as legitimate tips and tricks for playing the game, are centered around obtaining gems without handing over any money.

Whether you just downloaded the game, or you're stuck and looking for a way to get ahead, we've compiled all of the most important tips and tricks you'll need to get free gems, breed and raise some powerful monsters, and become a legend.

Monster Legends Cheats

The most important thing to understand about free-to-play games like Monster Legends is that there are two ways to play. You can either take it slow, while maximizing all of the opportunities the game provides, or you can pay a bunch of money to jump ahead.

There are a lot of apps, sites, and online key-generators that promise to provide a bunch of free gold and gems, but it's best to avoid these supposed shortcuts.

Monster Legends has no legitimate cheat codes, free gems, or hacks. Downloading any programs, providing your login information, or filling out any surveys that promise free gems for Monster Legends may open you up to phishing or malware. Even if they did work, using a cheat or hack would likely result in your account being banned.

Playing a game like Monster Legends without boosts from free gems can be hard, but there are a ton of ways to get legitimate gems just for playing the game.

How to Earn Free Gems in Monster Legends

Monster Legends allows you to earn free gems by earning achievements, completing daily goals, completing daily missions, and completing various other in-game tasks. Here are some of the ways you can get your hands on a few free gems here and there:

  • Level up by earning experience.
  • Fight bosses on the adventure map.
  • Fight in the monster arena.
  • Clear meteorites on your island for a chance to find a gem.
  • Log in every day and claim your daily bonuses.
  • Watch ads and complete tasks in the Monsterwood once it unlocks.
    Note: The Monsterwood isn't available until you have played the game for a while.

Unlock Monster Legends Achievements For Free Gems

Monster Legends has achievements, which you can earn by reaching specific milestones like gathering a set amount of gold or winning battles. When you unlock an achievement, you are awarded with both experience and gems.

Each achievement in Monster Legends has three tiers, and the game provides you with an award for reaching each tier. For instance, you get one gem for gathering 500,000 gold, three gems for gathering 10,000,000 gold, and 10 more gems once you collect 500,000,000 gold.

If you're able to unlock every tier of every achievement, you'll net about 300 gems. That would cost about $20 in the in-app shop, which is pretty decent for just playing the game.

Important: After earning an achievement, goal, or daily mission, you need to tap the goals icon on the left side of the screen and then tap collect reward.

How to Breed in Monster Legends

While you can buy powerful monsters with gems, that isn't really a viable option unless you want to spend cash in the in-app store. That means breeding monsters is extremely important in Monster Legends. Better monsters provide you with more gold and stand a better chance at winning fights.

We have an in-depth guide to breeding in Monster Legends, but here's a quick rundown on rarities, elements, and legendary monsters to get you started.

Elements and Rarities in Monster Legends

There are nine elements in Monster Legends, and each is strong against one element and weak against another.

ElementStrong AgainstWeakest Against
FireNatureWater
NatureMagicFire
MagicMetalNature
MetalLightMagic
LightDarkMetal
DarkEarthLight
EarthThunderDark
ThunderWaterEarth
WaterFireThunder

The most basic creatures in the game are common rarity monsters. These are single element monsters, so they are weak against one element and strong against another. Breeding them together can result in uncommon, rare, or epic dual element monsters.

RarityEvolves to AdultMax LevelNotes
CommonLevel 740Single element
UncommonLevel 1060Dual Element
RareLevel 1575Dual Element
EpicLevel 2590Dual Element
LegendaryLevel 25100Dual element, one is always legendary

How to Breed a Legendary Monster

Legendary monsters are the most powerful creatures in Monster Legends, so you'll eventually want to get your hands on some to build the best team. Each of these monsters can be obtained by breeding a specific pair of lower level monsters.

The chance of obtaining a legendary from such a pairing is low, but it is the only way to get legendary monsters without paying for them.

The specific breeding pairs required for obtaining legendaries changes from time to time, and new legendary monsters are added to the game from time to time, but these are some pairings you can try out:
