As you can see, our tips to spend your Crystals are meant to increase your productivity. This does not, however, mean it is a good idea to spend your crystals on speeding up the construction of buildings, or to ‘skip waiting’ on the production of the materials. Spending Crystals on something that only takes a few minutes would be a waste, so it is best to be patient.

Don’t bother wasting Crystals on skipping queues for production or building

We also do not recommend spending Crystals on the resources you are already producing, such as roll cake wood or axes, even if you have run out and need more quickly. The resources are easily produced, especially if you have spent Crystals on increasing the slots anyway, so there is no point in wasting Crystals on buying resources separately. The best thing to do is to just keep your resource buildings busy and always producing your items, you can save quite a lot of items within the ‘Storage’ so keep it topped up as you play.

Good luck!
