Farming/Crafting/Upgrading Gems

Recommended Posts

i'd like to have some info about what drops if you already have all the legendary gems.

 

Legendary gems will stop dropping, but you can get additional ones to drop if you store a legendary gem on another character (you will receive the 'hidden' one.)

  • 60%: Gem's Rank + 6 ≥ Greater Rift Level ≥ 0;

here's the mistake, it should be

60%: Gem's Rank + 6 ≥ Greater Rift Level ≥ Gem's Rank;

Very, very helpful Diablo guides. Excuse my ignorance but can the legendary gems only be upgraded when unsocketed? Thank you

Nope, you can upgrade any Legendary Gem you've got either in your inventory, stash or equipped. You can even switch them between characters.

The minimum Rift levels needed to get 100% every time is over by 1. It should be 12, 15, 18, etc.

If you run a rift at rank 13, with a rank 1 gem, the following happens:

Rank 1 to Rank 2 = 100%

Rank 2 to Rank 3 = 100%

Rank 3 to Rank 4 = 100%

If you did it on rank 12, you would have that final upgrade as a 90% chance.

Legendary Gems start at Rank 0, not Rank 1

You are correct! Apologies for that, my mistake. I'll make sure that the writers are made aware and this gets fixed.

"Urshi asks you to choose between upgrading your gem or refunding you an upgraded Keystone"

Is this still true?

No it is not. This entire guide will get an update, since it has a bit of outdated info. Will post here when it is updated!

Boon of the Hoarder is no longer exclusive to Greed, it also drops in G-Rifts.

I've put in another note for the gems guide to be updated, hopefully we can get it done soon!

Could anyone tell me how to get the gem recipes for royals? I started my first seasonal character and I totally forgot how to get the recipes since it's been so long since I got the recipes for my non seasonal characters.

You'll need to do bounties - they drop in the caches!

Missing the Esoteric Gem. The one that reduces all non-physical damage...

There are a few missing since it hasn't been updated in a while. I've made notes for it to be done, but yet to be so far - will ping the note again and get it done, sorry!

Just one more friendly bump since its been 6 months since anyone posted on this thread for an update.

An update for this guide should be coming soon-ish, but since it is near the bottom of our priority list, I can't really say when. Sorry to keep you waiting!

I'd love to know what people do to farm normal gems.  The best I've found is to farm bounty bosses with the broken crown (of course).  Others have suggested puzzle rings and trying for gem gobs, but I feel this would be less reliable for early in the season (when you would need to farm normal gems).

      Diablo's anniversary is almost here and the Darkening of Tristam event returns January 3.
      (Source)
      Diablo’s anniversary is right around the corner, along with the Darkening of Tristram event! Whether you’re a series veteran craving nostalgia, or a newcomer hungry for your first taste of the franchise’s past, this annual loving homage to the earliest days of Diablo is for you.
      Read on for more, including a closer look at the anniversary dungeon and its unique rewards.

      Stop the Cultists
      Your journey begins on the trail of a group of mysterious cultists causing trouble in Sanctuary. As you hunt them down in Adventure Mode, you’ll uncover clues leading to a portal into Tristram’s past, and the terrifying darkness that took hold of the town so many years ago. . . .

      Explore the Cathedral
      Follow the clues and you’ll soon find yourself in a realm of glorious RetroVision™, where an all-too-familiar cathedral looms. Explore the depths and you’ll discover familiar enemies and iconic items, all brought to life in the Diablo III engine. Meanwhile, deep beneath the catacombs, the Dark Lord himself awaits any intrepid adventurer who dares to challenge him. . . .

      Discover Precious Loot
      What is a Diablo game without shiny new loot to call your own? Completing activities in the anniversary event yields unique transmogrification effects, achievements, portraits, pets, and more.
      While some rewards are easy to find, others may have you scouring every nook or unlocking every achievement before you can get your hands on them. Can you earn them all? There’s only one way to find out!

      Your Journey Begins…
      Exclusive rewards and challenging enemies await you, but they won’t last forever! The cultists will appear on December 31 at 4 p.m. PST, and the portal opens January 3 at the same hour. Both parts of the event end January 31 at 4 p.m. PST.
      Enter the dungeon, reap your rewards, and survive the evils within—or die in the process, never to be heard from again. . . .
