So, I made the best strategies for spending gems if you want to reach a certain node. First, I'll explain how this works:
For each monster, there are several possible strategies with various amounts of time necessary.
I'm also putting some strategies that take longer to complete than the island lasts because, if an island boost happens, the items take 2 times less time to collect, meaning you get twice as many items during those 2 days, which means you effectively get 4 days worth of items in that time, which can also be translated to 2 extra days.This time there is probably no island boost so I am not including strategies longer than 5 days.To find the strategy that suits you, think about how many times will you collect an entire pool of items in the 5 days of the island, and multiply that number with 8 hours to get the amount of total time you want on your strategy. Note that if the number of hours is divisible by 8 on all collections, I put the number of collections as a reference and not the number of hours.
I'm considering the amount of time required to get items once they are in the pool as 0. Also, this time some nodes require PvP; I'm assuming that you start every node with 3 PvP attacks.
How the strategy works: For each quest, the strategy tells you the number of gems to spend on that quest. Note that quests which only require 1 breeding item can be completed almost instantly so they aren't included.
It also says after how much time is required to get you to this gem cost if there is no island boost(or if the number of hours is divisible with 8, then the number of collections), which is mainly helpful if you divide it by 8 hours to see how many times you should collect the entire pool of items after you get your first collection. Note that dividing by 8 also works if you're planning for an island boost; just make sure to collect every 4 hours instead of every 8 hours.
If you're going by every hour collection, you might see a remainder when dividing by 8(usually 4, when you get 3 gold and 2 food items without waste); that means that it's optimal to collect an incomplete pool and then gem.To save time, I put all the strategies of the same type in one place; you can search(ctrl+f on pc) one of these things:
35 cells
65 cells(monster, rank 0)
60 cells
60 cells(rank 1)
75 cells

130 cells
160 cells(rank 3)
180 cells
190 cells(rank 4)
320 cells
420 cells(rank 5)If you have any other questions, feel free to reply on this thread.

Firstly, if you don't know how progressive islands work, refer to this post.
So, I made the best strategies for spending gems if you want to reach a certain node. First, I'll explain how this works:

Note that recently island boosts became less common so scroll
To find the strategy that suits you, think about how many times will you collect an entire pool of items in the 11 days of the island, and multiply that number with 8 hours to get the amount of total time you want on your strategy. Note that if the number of hours is divisible by 8 on all collections, I put the number of collections as a reference and not the number of hours.
I'm considering the amount of time required to get items once they are in the pool as 0.

If you're writing a phyton program, i don't see anything hard with converting days into days, hours and minutes. For days, just use int(days), for hours int(days*24)%24, for minutes int(days*1440)%60.

@JasmineSkunk Breed a bunch of pandakens and put them in level 4 nature habitats. Later you can add nature and fire boosts and gold runes. That's the best way to get a bunch of gold early on which you can use to grow food. Later on, once you get good monsters and runes and feed them you can do the dungeons for breeding Firelequin or Exo Skeel and make gold farms with those 2 monsters.
