A ruby

Rubies are the premium currency in Clicker Heroes. They can be obtained from clickables, mercenary quests, or by purchasing them from the Shop using real money.

Obtaining Rubies

From the Shop

Rubies can be purchased directly via real money on all providers, except Kongregate and Coolmath Games.
Kongregate users will need to purchase Kreds to their account first and use those to buy the rubies. Mobile rubies runs under the economy of 10 times the amount of PC rubies, hence the purchased amount would also be 10 times that of PC. Coolmath does not provide a way to buy rubies.

115 $9.99 99 15%
240 $19.99 199 20%

Spending Rubies


The Shop

Most Ruby purchases can be made from the Ruby Shop, which is accessed by clicking the green button below the monster HP bar.

Note: On websites such as Armor Games, you must create an account and log in to it in order to use the shop. This can be avoided by going to the spanner at the top right, pressing it, clicking the 'save' button, saving your progress somewhere on your device, opening the original Clicker Heroes website, pressing the spanner on it in the top right, clicking 'import' to paste your data there and then you will be able to play with the shop.

Tips On Spending Rubies

  • In early game: The first thing you will want to buy are 2 Autoclicker default.png Auto Clickers. Next, you want to buy the Double Damage upgrade, this is optional. Buy 3 more Autoclicker default.png Auto Clickers and begin saving rubies.
  • In late game: Buy Timelapses and Quick Ascensions. As you progress further and further, it becomes more and more efficient to Quick Ascend rather than World Ascend. Once you reach Zone 50K depending on your Ruby amount, you will want to start Timelapsing. Follow the timelapse calculator accordingly. At around Zone 250K, depending on your Ruby amount you will want to start Quick Ascending overr and over until you reach the cap at Zone 1 Million. You should then begin Timelapsing again. When you start your transcension to 1 million, the timelapse calculator will say for you to save rubies, do this as you’ll need around 3300 rubies (33000 on mobile) to use quick ascensions from zone 250k to 1m.


  • The Ruby Shop (and with it, the Ruby system) was introduced in patch 0.17c. It only sold Timelapses, Gilded Heroes, and Quick Ascensions at that time though.
  • Patch 1.0 limited the amount of clickables that could award rubies to 25 per ascension.
  • Patch 1.0e10 added 24 and 48-hour timelapses which cost 20 and 30 rubies, and halved the cost of an 8-hour timelapse.
  • Patch 1.0e11 removed the cap of 25 clickables that could drop rubies. It also added a 168-hour timelapse and made Quick Ascension's hero soul reward stop growing after zone 1 million.
  • In the 2017 April Fool's Day event, clicking the hero's faces could possibly give you rubies.
