Earning money is crucial to surviving in Resident Evil 4 Remake, and players can buy and upgrade weapons sold by merchant NPCs. Using the gem rewards from Resident Evil 4 Remakes is one of the best ways to get more money. While some treasures found are valuable in their own right, when customized, their total value can skyrocket and provide players with even greater rewards.
Resident Evil 4 Remake’s loot system also makes it more interesting to trade items with merchants, including buying special items like treasure maps. However, understanding the treasure gem reward system is crucial for players to get the most out of it.
How gem combinations work in Resident Evil 4 Remake
In Resident Evil 4 Remake, players can discover items that can be immediately sold to merchants through the pre-sale customization option. However, there are also many treasures that can be customized with different combinations of gems to increase their value. These can be found inside standard chests, or by opening Wayshrines in Resident Evil 4 Remake. Players can mainly find gems dropped by enemies, such as sapphires dropped by regenerators.
Inserting gems into treasure chests adds additional gem bonuses, which increase the value of the treasure chest, giving players more money to spend on weapons and upgrades. It’s also worth noting that round gems can only fit into circular slots, and rectangular gems can only fit into rectangular slots. Players may need to try different combinations. The value of the gemstone type is also different, as follows:
Red Ruby, Round : 3,000 Pesetas Blue Sapphire, Round : 4,000 Pesetas Green Emerald, Rectangle : 5,000 Pesetas Purple Alexandrite, Rectangular : 6,000 Pesetas Yellow Diamond, Round Shaped : 7,000 Pesetas Beryl, Rectangular : 9,000 Pesetas 10330-10-360 69501 Get more money in Resident Evil 4 Remake, worth the time to add gems to treasures saved over time , rather than selling individual items immediately. Some discoverable sellable items, such as the Splendid Bangle, only contain a few gem slots, so rewards for players are somewhat limited. In this case, adding two gems of the same color, such as two emeralds, increases the double gem bonus.
Instead of the bracelet’s base value of 4,000, players are rewarded with an additional bonus of roughly 5,000 pesetas per gem for a 1.2 double gem bonus, increasing the overall sale value of the item to an even higher 16,800 pesetas. However, other treasure items contain more gem slots, allowing for various gem combinations. With this, players can create Resident Evil 4’s best seller.
How to add gems to treasure
Adding one to each gem type is one of the best gem treasure combinations for getting the most money. Merchants seem to value treasures with a wide variety of gems, or adding all gems of the same color, bi-color, or tri-color. The highest gem bonus is achieved by adding five gems of different colors, each giving a bonus of 2.0. However, adding gems of the same color is also valuable.
It is best to refer to the gem chart to assess the best combination of gems a player has and the number and type of slots available. Players can even find an elegant crown through a crack in the wall and customize it with gems, selling a treasure for over 100,000 pesetas (and earning the Astute Appraiser achievement).
Players can also get more money from treasure chests by adding red beryls and yellow sapphires. These high-value gems are dropped by certain enemies, such as the red masked cultist from Chapter 9. Players can also trade Resident Evil 4 Remake spinels for Beryl or Yellow Diamonds with merchants, so if the player has some spinels left, it’s worth trading those spinels. Worth hanging on beryls and yellow sapphires to later insert in treasures, especially the Diadem of Grace and the Golden Lynx.
