Gem Quest and Multiball Stacking
Some players will choose a Gem Quest based on if they have a portal lock or are close to a multiball. The guidelines below are meant as a starting point for thinking about which Quest is a safer choice:
It seems Power is a safer mode to go for if you are not close to a multiball. Some shots might be easier without extra balls getting in the way as well. (By no means a ‘safe mode’ though, just safer IF you can’t stack with multiball or get a ball saver going.
Time, Reality, and Mind are all more riskier due to the need to hit the drops or disc multiple times. These 3 are all going to be safer to tackle with a multiball stack.
Space doesn’t enter the conversation until after you have collected a couple gems. Sorry, I don’t get this far into the game, so I don’t have an opinion on it yet other than to just always avoid it.
