+60% Garnet Damage
2% Upgrade Cost Reduction
Maximum Level: 25

  • Increases Garnet Damage granted by mutations by 60% per level.
  • The very first level when you unlock gives you a double bonus, so you start with 120%
  • Mutation damage adds up into one big bonus, so adding this 60% to an existing bonus of 500% would total 560%.
  • The genes Mutation Infusion multiply this coloured damage by 10% per gene, to a maximum of 110%.
  • The Gene Lab's Mutation Specialization further add to this multiplication by 5% per level, with no maximum,
  • Decreases gold cost of all purchases by 2% per level.
  • Includes costs to level your crabs, unlock and level your queens, and level your abilities.
  • When maxed out, you would have 1560% added mutation damage for Garnet crabs and queens (multiplied by bonuses described above), and all gold purchases would be reduced to half cost.


This mutation, when maxed out, effectively doubles your gold output - making it cheaper than all other gold mutations in existence. This should be a priority for any stage of the game, if you do not have it already.
