This page covers the gems that are currently available, as well as their effectsand information on each.
Gems can be unsocketed at will and higher level gems can beused on any character, so spending gold to upgrade non-legendary gems or farming forlegendary gems (and upgrading them) is never a waste. Depending on your amount ofplay, you will also likely need to keep farming and leveling them to fulfilthe Augment recipe in Kanai”s Cube.
Non-legendary gems or normal gems come in 5 possible types: Amethyst,Diamond, Emerald, Ruby, and Topaz. Each of this type of gem givesyou different stat bonuses for different item slots.
|Amethysts||% Life||Life per Hit||Vitality|
|Diamonds||Cooldown Reduction||+Damage to Elites||All Resistance|
|Emeralds||Extra Gold||Critical Hit Damage||Dexterity|
|Topazes||Resource Cost Reduction||Thorns Damage||Intelligence|
At Level 70, the most basic gems you can find are Marquise gems, for example Marquise Emerald. You can upgrade these gems all the way to Flawless Royal Emerald. All the gem types follow the same upgrade patterns, whichwe describe below for Emerald gems.
This means that to craft a single Flawless Royal Emerald, you will need a total of81x Marquise Emerald, 4x
Death”s Breath, and 9,800,000 Gold. Imperial gemsdo sometimes drop at Level 70, so having a few of those will lower the cost, butthe overall cost is extremely cheap compared to the amount of gold you will findat Level 70.
You also need to find the Jeweler”s patterns for these gems, which can be foundin the Bounty Cache you obtain from completing 5 bounties in a single act.
Legendary gems are obtained from Greater Rifts. You are guaranteed to get oneevery time you kill a Greater Rift Guardian.
Unlike normal gems, legendary gems can only be increased in power by upgradingthem through Greater Rifts.
Each time you complete a greater rift, you will be able to upgrade the gem bya single rank, with 3 guaranteed chances at an upgrade if you complete the riftin time. Additionally, you will get an extra chance if you do not die during therift or if you empower it when starting the rift using gold. By doing both, youcan have a maximum of 5 upgrade chances per Greater Rift.
Each upgrade is given a percentage chance to succeed, dependant on the levelof the gem and the Greater Rift level you completed. Currently, the chances areas follows:
100%: Greater Rift Level higher than or equal to Gem”s Rank + 10;90%: Greater Rift Level ≥ Gem”s Rank + 9;80%: Greater Rift Level = Gem”s Rank + 8;70%: Greater Rift Level = Gem”s Rank + 7;60%: Gem”s Rank + 6 ≥ Greater Rift Level ≥ 0;30%: Greater Rift Level = Gem”s Rank – 1;15%: Greater Rift Level = Gem”s Rank – 2;8%: Greater Rift Level = Gem”s Rank – 3;4%: Greater Rift Level = Gem”s Rank – 4;2%: Greater Rift Level = Gem”s Rank – 5;1%: Greater Rift Level = Gem”s Rank – 6;0%: Greater Rift Level ≤ Gem”s Rank – 7.
All legendary gems can be upgraded to give them better stats (or rather,more powerful effects). When you first loot a legendary gem, it has a rank of0 and its special Rank 25 effect is locked.
