Diamonds are one of the most expensive and rare currencies in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang.
They are mainly used to purchase heroes and skins among many others.
Wanna know how to earn Diamonds in the game? Did you know there are ways you can earn them without spending money? Read this guide to find out!
1. Live Streaming
Did you know that you can earn Diamonds by live streaming your Mobile Legends gameplay?
Yup! Viewers of your stream can gift you Diamonds if they enjoy watching your stream.
Here is the amount of Diamonds you can get from live stream gifts:
- Flower: 2 Diamonds
- Jewelry: 6 Diamonds
- Roadster: 250 Diamonds
- Yacht: 1000 Diamonds
- Airplane: 5000 Diamonds
This is probably the simplest way to get free diamonds since you can already start streaming anytime in the game.
However, it’s not that easy! You have to be a decent player of Mobile Legends so that a lot of people will follow you and watch your streams.
If they love your stream they’ll want to gift you with Diamonds as a way of giving back and supporting you.
Another tip for gaining more viewers is by having a lot of followers in the game and streaming your game live on Facebook and YouTube.
You can even create a personal brand and setup social media accounts to grow your community.
In short, it will take a lot of effort and dedication. So make sure that you you’ll really enjoy streaming your games and creating a community—not because you only want the Diamonds!
2. Join ML Tournaments
The second method is competing in official Mobile Legends Tournaments.
Moonton usually hosts Mobile Legends: Diamond Challenge Series competitions where you can gain thousands of Diamonds and cash!
For example, on the Diamond Challenge competition in the Philippines, you can win the following prizes:
- Champion: $1,500 + 5,000 Diamonds per player
- 2nd Place: $800 + 3,000 Diamonds per player
- 3rd Place: $500 + 2,000 Diamonds per player
- 4th Place: $200 + 1,000 Diamonds per player
- 5-8th Place: 500 Diamonds per player
If you think you and your team are talented enough to compete in your local tournament, give the Mobile Legends: Diamond Challenge series a shot!
3. Recharge / Top-Up
Finally, the fastest but expensive method is to just buy them from the shop.
Just think of it as a way of showing support to the Mobile Legends developers for making such an amazing and enjoyable game!
Be warned though, we highly discourage you from buying Diamonds illegally from 3rd-party sellers. Although they do sell Diamonds for cheaper, they are actually using illegal means of obtaining them, such as hacking and using stolen Credit Cards.
It’s very likely that you will get scammed or even banned if the game catches you using these methods, so be careful and make sure to only buy from official and trusted sellers!
If you’re from SEA, one of the methods to buy Diamonds is through the site called CodaShop. There are several payment methods that you can use, such as paying with your mobile prepaid load.
Tips for Spending Diamonds
Once you have Diamonds and are ready to purchase in the game, make sure to take advantage of events and discounts so that you get more value out of your hard-earned Diamonds!
For example, the Mystery Shop will give you some discount when buying heroes.
The game is generous with these kinds of discounts, because they want to tempt you into spending Diamonds! So watch out for these.
But wait, there’s more!
We understand that not all Mobile Legends players have the extra bit of cash to spend on Diamonds and skins, or have the skill and talent to compete and win in the tournaments, or the dedication to live stream and create a community following.
And that’s okay, after all Diamonds are the premium currency of the game and just like normal businesses, the developers need to make profits too so they can continue creating content for the game and keep the servers up!
The good news is, Diamonds are just one of the many types of currencies in the game. There are several ways to obtain skins and heroes without using Diamonds.
Mobile Legends after all is a free-to-play game, and you can use Battle Points, Tickets, Fragments and many more to get heroes and skins.
