    • Some mobs also guarantee these precious jewels as drops after you kill them, as the Regenerators and the Masked Cultists in red wear assuring Ruby and Red Beryl drops, respectively.
    • Additionally, you can obtain certain gems as rewards for taking down notably strong foes, like the amped Iron Maiden in the Wandering Dead Merchant Request that drops an Alexandrite once killed.

Uses Of Gemstones

  • Alongside simply selling off the gemstone as it is, one important feature the remake adds is the capability of inlaying several of these gemstones into treasure items, ultimately becoming more valuable than their constituents.
  • These Treasure Items have unique slots for you to fill with several jewels.

    • One of the major distinguishing factors of a gemstone that determines whether or not it’s compatible with a specific slot of a treasure item is its shape.
    • Once a gemstone fits into the item, the newly-made artifact gains the value of the standalone gemstone and treasure item combined.
    • On top of that, you can also get a Gemstone Bonus, an extra multiplier of the artifact’s value, raising it by a considerable margin.

  • As seen, the Bonuses become much more significant as more jewels are inlaid into a single Treasure Item.
  • For the best possible payout, wait for a 4 or 5-slot Treasure item and stack as many gemstones as possible into that item since more gems will equal a higher incentive due to the multiplier.

Important: Notice how you’ll get a bigger bonus when you pair up the same gemstones. This is another aspect of RE4 Remake’s revamped looting system, encouraging you to collect rather than spend jewels until you have a set of the same type.

My Thoughts On Gemstones

In my opinion, the gemstone system in Resident Evil 4 Remake adds an intriguing layer of depth to the game’s economy. Collecting and inlaying these precious gems into treasure items becomes a puzzle in itself. It’s a clever twist that encouraged me to think strategically about when to cash in their valuable finds. The Gemstone Bonuses offer an additional incentive, rewarding those who carefully stack and pair similar gems.
