In Fire Emblem: Three Houses, players have the ability to get their hands on special items like the Knowledge Gem. In particular, the Knowledge Gem can be somewhat hard to get unless you take the time to complete one of two battles. Those fortunate enough to get their hands on the Knowledge Gem have also had questions in regards to what it does. To help clear everything up, we’ve put together a guide on how to get the Knowledge Gem and what it’s used for in Fire Emblem: Three Houses!
How to get Knowledge Gem in Fire Emblem: Three Houses
The first question Fire Emblem: Three Houses players have is how to get the Knowledge Gem. During our time with the game, we encountered two ways to get the Knowledge Gem. First, you’ll want to take the time to complete the “Tales of the Red Canyon” paralogue for Sothis. As you make your way through the battle, keep an eye out for a chest.
If you have a Chest Key in your inventory, you can move one of your units over to that chest and open it. Inside, you’ll find a Knowledge Gem. In the event that you missed out on the Knowledge Gem during the Tales of the Red Canyon paralogue, there is another battle that will let you grab this special item. This battle comes during Chapter 11 and takes place inside the Holy Mausoleum.
There, you’ll need to safeguard Crest Stones by intercepting the bandits holding them before they can escape. If you’re able to intercept all of these bandits and protect all Crest Stones during this battle, you’ll be rewarded with a Knowledge Gem. Once you have a Knowledge Gem in your inventory, the next question you’ll have is what this item is used for.
In a nutshell, any character you equip with the Knowledge Gem will receive a boost in the amount of total skill experience they earn. As such, we recommend giving it to a character who needs a little extra help leveling up their skills. Alternatively, you can give it to a character who needs an extra boost before taking Certifications for Advanced and Master Classes. After all, you don’t want to waste a Master Seal!
