What are Legendary Gems in Diablo Immortal?

As explained above, Diablo Immortal gems offer bonuses when slotted into your gear. Legendary Gems offer the greatest bonuses, but they can only slot into your Legendary Gear. Legendary Gems offer a boost to your Combat Rating and Resonance, along with powerful unique effects.

Star ratings denote the rarity and relative power of Legendary Gems. There are three tiers of Legendary Gems: 1, 2, and 5-star. 5-star gems are the rarest and most powerful, while 1-star gems are the weakest and most common.

However, 5-star gems can drop without all 5 stars filled, creating another layer of rarity and power. For example, 5-star gems with only 2 out of 5 stars are weaker than full 5-star gems, but also far more common.

How to get Legendary Gems in Diablo Immortal

Elder Rifts are the main way to get Legendary Gems in Diablo Immortal. However, you won't simply get Legendary Gems from running countless Elder Rifts. To get Legendary Gems from an Elder Rift, you will need to apply one or more Rare or Legendary Crests.

Rare Crests add a small chance for a 1-star Legendary Gem, and a guarantee for Runes, which you can use to craft Legendary Gems. Legendary Crests add a guarantee for a Legendary Gem, heavily weighted towards 1-star gems, as well as the same Runes as Rare Crests. All crests increase the number of Fading Embers you receive. You can then use Fading Embers to craft a small pool of Runes.

You can get one Rare Crest for free per day at the Elder Rift portal in Westmarch, and buy up to two more per day from the Hilts Trader. Legendary Crests are far more limited; you can only buy one per month from the Hilts Trader and will need to spend real money to get more.

Those playing consistently can also obtain Legendary Gems from the battle pass. The Diablo Immortal battle pass has three rewards tracks. One of them is free, and usually only offers a couple of Legendary Gems. The paid tracks offer far more Legendary Gems, but you'll need to spend some real money to access these rewards.

The Legendary Gems available in the Season 2 battle pass are Seled's Weakening and Fervent Fang. Season 2 is set to end on August 4th, so those itching to complete a full pass might want to wait until Season 3 starts soon.

If you want to know the best gems for each class specifically, we've included our picks in each build guide:

How to craft Legendary Gems using Runes

You can use any Runes you get to craft Legendary Gems at any Apprentice Jeweler. 1 and 2-star Legendary Gems are directly craftable and require specific combinations of Runes to make.

5-star gems cannot be crafted directly. For a chance at a 5-star Legendary Gem, you will need to spend Fa Runes or Ati Runes. You can spend 22 Fa Runes to craft a random Legendary Gem, which could include a potential 5-star gem. To get Fa Runes, you must purchase them from the Fading Ember trader. Ati Runes allow you to buy specific Legendery Gems, but you'll only find them rarely while exploring Elder Rifts.

How to upgrade Legendary Gems

There are two components required to upgrade Legendary Gems. The first is Gem Power, which you get by dismantling spare Legendary Gems at the Apprentice Jeweler. The second is duplicate Legendary Gems of the same type. Duplicates are not required for all upgrade levels, but higher levels and higher rarity gems require more duplicates to upgrade. This makes upgrading 5-star gems particularly time-consuming.

How to buy and sell Legendary Gems on the player Market

You can buy and sell Legendary Gems to and from other players at the Market in Westmarch. This is the hub of Diablo Immortal’s player trade economy. The Market uses its own unique currency called Platinum. You can acquire Platinum by selling items on the Market or buy it with real money from the cash shop.

You can list Legendary Gems, regular gems, and Skill Stones on the Market using the Sell tab. If you wish to sell items in your stash, you will need to pull them out to your main inventory first. You can browse listings of gems in the buy tab if you wish to make a purchase.

Can you get all 5-Star Legendary Gems?

It's going to prove very difficult to get every Legendary Gem with all 5 stars filled. We’ve done the math on how much it costs to play Diablo Immortal, and acquiring one copy of all 5-Star Legendary Gems, agnostic of their individual stars counts, will require hundreds of combined Legendary Crests and random gem crafts. Acquiring all 5-Star Legendary Gems with all 5 stars filled is improbable to the point of being functionally impossible.

With the extremely generous assumption that all 5-star gems carry the same value on the Market, functionally protecting you from duplicates by allowing you to exchange them one-for-one for a gem you don’t have, it would still take over 23,000 combined Legendary Crests and random gem crafts to acquire all ten fully-filled 5-star Legendary Gems, on average. Of course, you can sell lower-tier gems on the Market to earn platinum and speed things along. However, their value is a fraction of a full 5-star. You will also need to dismantle a lot of gems for Gem Power to upgrade the Legendary Gems you are currently using. Plus, you're going to need copies of your 5-star gems to fully upgrade them, adding another few thousands crests and crafts to the equation.

So, players should plan to use mostly 2-star Legendary Gems with one or two 5-star Legendary gems without all stars, and our future build guides will refelct that. The “perfect” full 5-star build is certainly enticing, but no amount of time or money will realistically get you there.
