What are Legendary Gems in Diablo Immortal? We will be covering how to earn Legendary Gems, rank up Legendary Gems and what their Star Count implies.
What exactly are Legendary Gems?
Legendary Gems and Normal Gems are the two varieties of Gems in Diablo Immortal. Regardless of their titles, you’ll almost likely receive a Legendary Gem first, during the primary quest goals “Legends of Eld” and “Braving the Rift” (both of which are part of the [Elder Rift tutorial]).
Legendary Gems, like legendary-grade equipment, contain unique modifications to numerous attributes and talents; for example, a Lightning Core Legendary Gem will always have the same modifiers as a Zod Stone Legendary Gem. Legendary Gems, in addition to any other benefits they may have. They often tend to improve your Resonance score (which increases all Attributes) and your Combat Rating. Thus, making them crucial adornments to your gear regardless of your class or build.
Legendary Gems may be socketed onto Primary Equipment such as helmets, chest armor, shoulders, legs, and a primary and off hand. At any one moment, only one of each kind of Legendary Gem may be donned.
1-Star, 2-Star & 5-Star Legendary Gems
Legendary Gems are classified into three groups depending on their “Star Count,” which can be found next to the gem’s name.
The Star Count of a Legendary Gem is basically an indication of its rarity and potency. Along with 1-Star gems being the most frequent and in terms of purse Resonance and Combat Rating, the weakest. 2-Star gems are somewhat higher on the hierarchy. Also while 5-Star gems are among of the game’s rarest and most powerful goods.
A Zod Stone is always a 1-Star Legendary Gem. While a Lightning Core is always a 2-Star Legendary Gem, regardless of the kind of Legendary Gem. 5-Star gems may be unlocked with anywhere between 2 and 5 Stars. The more Stars a prospective 5-Star gem has unlocked, the stronger its Resonance and Combat Rating boosts.
How to acquire Legendary Gems?
There are many methods to gain Legendary Gems, regardless of their rarity (Star Count), as follows:
- Completing Elder Rifts
- Purchasing them from the Market in Westmarch
- Crafting at a Jeweler
5-Star Legendary Gems are much more rarer than their 1-Star and 2-Star counterparts. Although a ridiculous amount of grinding may get you the gems you desire. The common denominator in acquiring 5-Star Legendary Gems is how much money you’re prepared to pay.
Obtaining Legendary Gems from Elder Rifts
You may access Elder Rifts by utilizing rare or legendary crests, with the latter increasing your chances of receiving greater Legendary Gems after you finish the Elder Rift. Legendary Crests may, of course, be purchased with premium cash from the Crest Merchant in Westmarch. As a consolation reward for completing Elder Rifts, which is another means to possibly get Legendary Gems, you will receive Runes.
Obtaining Legendary Gems in the Market
Everyone adored Diablo 3’s “Real Money Auction House,” so it’s no surprise that a variation of it has appeared in Diablo Immortal through the Market in Westmarch. Here you may buy and sell goods for premium cash, which may include 5-Star Legendary Gems.
Legendary Gems Creation
If you go to a Jeweler and choose the “Craft” option, you’ll discover a variety of formulas for making Legendary Gems. All of these formulas need Runes (and in certain cases, premium gold); different Runes are required to make various Legendary Gems. Specific 1-Star and 2-Star gems may be made directly, but if you want a chance at 5-Star gems, you must use the “Random Legendary Gem” method.
How to Level Up Legendary Gems?
You may upgrade Legendary Gems (raise their rank) by cannibalizing other Legendary Gems, which provides an amount of Gem Power dependent on the Star Count of the devoured Legendary Gem. During early rank ups, the specific kind of Legendary Gem eaten is unimportant, and any surplus Gem Power is kept as Gem Fragments (one Gem Fragment = one Gem Power). The greater a Legendary Gem’s rank and Star Count, the more Gem Power it will need, and the sooner and more it will require duplicate Legendary Gems to produce. To upgrade, a Lightning Core Legendary Gem will need the surrender of another Lightning Core Legendary Gem. Because you can’t equip several copies of the same Legendary Gem, this isn’t as bad as it sounds.
