Diablo Immortal legendary farming: How to get Legendary Gear in Diablo Immortal

The best ways to leave your Rare items behind

Want to start legendary farming in Diablo Immortal? Legendary Gear is crucial if you want to survive on the highest difficulties in Diablo Immortal, but it's also exceedingly rare. Legendary Gear is available in six slots for your build: head, chest, shoulders, legs, main-hand, and off-hand. Each piece of Legendary Gear you equip will offer a few increased attribute scores, a random magic effect, and a unique legendary effect. The unique legendary effect usually alters or improves one of your class abilities, meaning you will want to find Legendary Gear that synergises well with your current skills and abilities.

In this guide, we'll explain how to get Legendary Gear and how to start legendary farming in Diablo Immortal. We'll also cover how to upgrade and alter Legendary Gear, so that you can make sure you always have the best possible gear equipped. Finally, we'll also break down Set Gear items and where to find them, as they're much easier to track and equally important for your build.

How to get Legendary Gear in Diablo Immortal

Acquiring Legendary Gear is fairly straightforward, since there is a small chance for Legendary items to drop from any monster in the game. That means that whether you’re strolling through a zone or battling a dungeon boss, you have a chance to earn a Legendary item. Higher combat rating monsters seem to have a higher chance to drop Legendaries, so you should find them more frequently as your progress through the game.

There is also a small chance to receive a Legendary item as a reward from Elder Rifts. You can increase the odds by using rare or legendary crests, but bare in mind that you can only get legendary crests by spending real money. If you want to get an idea of the money you might need to spend, Rebecca took an in-depth look at how much it costs to play Diablo Immortal.

The Horadric Bestiary also offers potential Legendary Gear. You earn new pages of the Horadric Bestiary by killing monsters in overworld zones to acquire Monstrous Essence, so you can progress the Bestiary alongside some other top Legendary farming methods.

Diablo Immortal legendary farming locations

If you want to start legendary farming in Diablo Immortal, here are the best legendary farming locations:

  • Realm of Damnation, Plains of Torment: This is one of the best spots for Diablo Immortal legendary farming right now. Simply run around the Northern loop in Plains of Torment and slaugher every demon that appears while activiating any nearby shrines. Demons respawn quickly in the Plains of Torment and mobs tend to include a lot of elite monsters, making Legendary Gear drop more often than other zones.
  • Bilefen, Crimsonblade Haven: If the Plains of Torment are busy, then head to the Bilefen zone and find the ship in Crimsonblade Haven. This is another good legendary farming spot, as there are a few mobs that spawn very close together and have a fast respawn rate. This means you can quickly cycle through each mob and hopefully find Legendary Gear more often than you would in other zones.
  • Shassar Sea, Domain of Horror: If the previous two options are full with other players, head to the two chambers on the North side of the Shassar Sea, in the Domain of Horror. Each of these chambers acts as a circle that you can run, similar to the Plains of Torment spot. Plenty of demons spawn in either chamber, making it another ideal spot for Legendary Gear farming.

Here are a few tips for Diablo Immortal legendary farming:

  • Play with friends to kill mobs faster.
  • Play on higher difficulties to fight more elite monsters and find more Legendary Gear.
  • Try to complete bounties while legendary farming.
  • If you're looking for other legendary farming spots, try to find somewhere that has a similarly high monster respawn rate to the locations above. You'll also want to find somewhere that is located near an Identifier, so that you can quickly see the exact gear that you've obtained while farming.

How to upgrade Legendary Gear in Diablo Immortal

If you find a piece of Legendary Gear with good stats but it doens't fit your build, you can use Essence Transfer to smash two Legendary items together and get the best parts of both by transfering a Legendary trait onto an item with better stats.

To begin an Essence Transfer, visit the Essence Transfer merchant in the southwest of Westmarch. Select the item with the Legendary trait you want, then pay 3,000 gold to extract its essence. This destroys the item and gives you an itemized Essence that you can apply to other Legendary items in the same slot. For example, you can transfer an Essence from a shield to another shield, but not from a shield to a helmet.

Next, go to the Transfer vendor’s Inherit tab and find the item that has better attribute rolls but without a desired Legendary trait. You can now apply your Legendary Essence to that item, changing its name, appearance, and Legendary trait to that of the Essence you chose. Its attribute rolls and upgrade ranks will remain unchanged, leaving you with a Legendary item that has both the trait and stats you want.
