I'm just gonna point out few things
*Preference blue & red gems especially at start, start full ritual of red/blue gem and finish it, you will get Gang of Thieves or Trap Disable potion. This is easier done in the beginning stages of game, when gems are pretty easily stolen from noobs and pretty low ritual times.
*Preferably don't waste alot of potions in the beginning stages of game. Once you get to about level 25 you will start seeing better gems that silver lining, and you want them, and usually at this stages dungeons will get actually hard.
*Orb your biggest ritual atleast once after league, it will save alot of inventory place and you may get higher delta rating. (if you don't use money)
*Raid only when you really need gems/coins, don't raid when your inventory is full of good gems, hunt for better gems always with silver lining once they start appearing in your level.
*If you have too much keys, retrieve guildmates gems and do single player, preferably just 1 star 7 death them. You can later get 3 star and full coin reward is about 5000-7000 from last levels, 3 star them when you need money. Also every gem mine is 1000 rating more and it is very helpful.
Don't max ritual with your best gems and leave it so. Your dungeon will be raided ASAP with every pot possible and you can be sure they will respin as long they have orbs. Do rituals something like this so theres not much risk: 1 good gem, 1 less better gem and 1 scrubby gem. This way only rare few may risk to use potions on raid.
*Practice your guildmates dungeons. This will help to intuitively know traps and paths alot better and maybe even see dungeon solution just by looking it.
*Upgrade your traps without preferably orbing, leave scrubby rituals maybe with one good gem, so if less better gets stolen you may replace it with even better gem. Good tactic is to start upgrading your traps as your ritual is at the end, so raider may get that scrubby gem and you replace it with even better. With this you will save inventory place, progress faster and gain higher rating.
*Try to get fast as possible atleast 7. level traps. Every trap is effective if used correctly.
*Upgrade your thrones ASAP for higher hp so 7+ death 2 star dungeons easily with low level traps.
*Prioritize only Revitalizing Heartbeat. Get 1 level master lockpicker & totem tooth, upgrade them if you are missing tears for Revitalizing Heartbeat and out of money if you want. Don't buy Ritual Berserker if you don't use money alot. 2 minute from ritual per raid is just nothing after beginning, getting 200 tears takes so long that you will be in middle game until so.
*Don't upgrade your locks, chest size, money regeneration, only maybe few first levels cause they're so cheap, but they're pretty much useless IMO. Your dungeon will be raided anyway by even a better player than the other noob with low keys. You want to welcome noobs to your dungeon with low level locks. Also you will save money and time.
*Seek active & skilled guild from forums preferably, the ones that game suggests are usually bad, in-active and low skilled. You want to be in skilled clan so your gems may be retrieved with higher chance, and of course active.
Hope this helps somebody, didn't look other posts if I said some same things.
