Normal And Legendary Gems

In this, we will cover all the Normal and legendary gems along with their respective Star rating and Rank concepts. We will also cover how to find and use them because the further you progress in the game, the more holes will be available to be filled. The more sockets filled, the more you improve your build.

The gems in Diablo immortal boost your stats overall, but in the case of legendary gems, you can customize your skill set to some extent. Let’s talk about the Diablo Immortal gem tier list, starting with the Normal gems. Normal gems should go in the sockets of secondary equipment such as the ring, neck, or boots. These normal gems have a total of 6 types and are mentioned in the order of a tier list.

Normal Gem Tier List in Diablo Immortal

NoGem NameEffectCompatible Equipment Slot
1Aquamarine+ 8 ArmorFeet, Neck, Ring
2Citrine+ 8 PotencyHands, Neck, Ring
3Ruby+ 80 LifeWaist, Neck, Ring
4Sapphire+ 8 Armor PenetrationFeet, Neck, Ring
5Topaz+ 8 ResistanceHands, Neck, Ring
6Tourmaline+ 8 DamageWaist, Neck, Ring

  • Ruby: Increases Life, Very good for survivability in both PVP and PVE
  • Tourmaline: Increase your damage, ultimately resulting in higher Damage-Per-Second
  • Sapphire: Increases your armor Penetration, ignoring all the enemy’s available armor stats and boosting your critical hit chance.
  • Aquamarine: Increases your armor stats, Making you even Tankier and an undying champ.
  • Citrine: Increases your Potency stats, which prolongs the duration of harmful effects on enemies and monsters like stuns and burns
  • Topaz: Increases your resistance, which decreases the duration of debuffs on you.

The Stats of each gem increase with the scaling of rank; the higher the rank, the higher the gem stats and effects. Enough about the gem stats and effects; let’s talk about how you can get these normal gems. There is a total of 4 ways to acquire these gems, and they are as follows.

How To Acquire Normal Gems

Daily Rewards

  • Firstly through your Daily rewards. You get rewards every day in the game by defeating at least one monster, and on days 4 and 6 of daily rewards, the gaming gives you six normal gems by getting the First Kill of the Day.

Buy From the Hilts Trader

  • Secondly, you can also buy them from the Hilts Trader. The Hilts Trader sells gems for 200 hilts, and you can purchase any gems you desire. However, there is a weekly cap on how many gems you can buy every week, which is 10 in this case.

Hidden Lairs

  • You can also get Normal gems by exploring Hidden Lairs, so get exploring!

Battle Pass 

  • And lastly, the one that requires the most effort (sarcasm). You can get Normal gems by increasing your battle pass level or using the empowered battle pass.

Now with the Normal Gems they have a straightforward upgrade path, by combining same type and rank of normal gems we get a higher rank gem. With these upgrades the gems effects increases.

Those are all the normal Gems available in the game for now.

Legendary Gems

Now let’s talk about legendary gems, the ones that make a significant difference, not only on your stats but also in your wallet. They socket into your primary equipment such as chest plate and leggings. Although only one gem of the same type can be equipped at a given time. Legendary gems also differ from normal gems because they don’t focus on stat only and aren’t upgraded the way normal gems are by combining.

Legendary Gems also provide passive stats, for example they give the Resonance stat which boosts attributes of the item the gem in socketed in to. They also give a combat Rating which assists the player in both offensive and defensive upgrades. These gems also offer separate bonuses for socketing alone, such as healing on attacking enemies or reducing damage taken.

Legendary Gem’s Star Rating

Legendary gems are very confusing, and we won’t blame you for losing your head trying to figure it out; not only do the legendary gems have ranks, but they also have a star rating. They range from 1, 2, and 5, which is even odder. But basically, it serves as a means to measure the power of the gems. However, with the star count ratings, you can upgrade them. For example, if a particular gem has a specific star rating, it cannot be altered or upgraded. Lets take a star 2 gem; you can’t upgrade its star rating although you could upgrade its rank, it will always be a 2-star rating.

Star Tier and Star Rating in Legendary Gems

To further add to the confusion, the 5-star gem can be dropped as lower star variants of the same gem, for example, a legendary gem with a 5-star rating; now that gem can appear as a 2-star, 3-star, 4-star, or 5-star rating. But waiting for a 5-star version of a gem is futile, considering the drop rate of those is close to none.

How to get these Gems

You can acquire these gems in multiple ways, including the grind or the wallet opening technique.

Use Legendary Crests or Rare Crests on Elder Rifts

  • You can acquire them by using Crests. Both the Legendary and Rare crests usage can drop Legendary gems, but if you use a Rare crest, it increases the chances, while using a Legendary Crest guarantees a Legendary Gem drop.

Battle Pass

  • You can also get these gems from the Battle pass. Both the battle passes give gems as rewards, but the Empowered Battle Pass gives more gems.

Buy From the Market

  • You can also directly buy these gems by buying Platinum, an in-game currency. You can also buy the Legendary Crests from the shop by using Eternal orbs and then obtain the Gems.

Craft at the Apprentice Jeweler

  • And lastly, you can craft these gems at the Apprentice jeweler by using Runes. This is the Grinding part of acquiring these gems, as getting Rare Runes is very hard.
