    Legendary Gems Guide

    I've found a nice compilation of information on Legendary Gems on reddit, made by Aesir81, source here:

    RoS 2.1 Legendary Gems Guide : Diablo

    Legendary gems can only be socketed into rings and amulets.


    There are 14 total legendary gems. 13 of them are acquired from greater rift guardians. The 14th one is Boon of the Hoarder, which comes from Baroness Greed in The Vault (goblin realm). Gem drop chance is very high, with an average between 1 and 2 drops per kill. Only gems your character does not yet own (equipped, in the inventory, or the stash) are being dropped, so getting all of them will not take long.


    Legendary gems can be upgraded at Urshi, a nephalem ghost NPC which spawns after completing a greater rift. When choosing to upgrade legendary gems, you will end your current greater rift run as you will be unable to get a new keystone from Urshi at the same time.

    When first acquired, legendary gems start at rank 0, and can be upgraded to become stronger. At rank 25, an additional effect is unlocked.

    You can have the chance to upgrade a legendary gem every time you complete a greater rift. Upon completing the greater rift, you will receive 3 chances to upgrade or “rank up” your gem. You can use all 3 attempts on the same gem or on different ones. Upgrading a gem does not always work, though. The upgrade chance for success is based on a combination of the greater rift level you're on and the gem's current rank. The success chance will be a lot lower if the gem is a higher rank than the greater rift level is. See this chart:

    Gem Upgrade Chance / Greater Rift Level Compared to Gem
    100% 90% 80% 70% 60% 60% 60% 60% 60% 60% 60% 30% 15% 8% 4% 2% 1% 0%
    +10 +9 +8 +7 +6 +5 +4 +3 +2 +1 0 -1 -2 -3 -4 -5 -6 -7

    Attempting to upgrade legendary gems is free and has no negative consequences beyond losing the attempt.

    When upgrading your gems, it does not matter where your gems are being stored – socketed in your gear, in your inventory, or in your stash. Urshi is omniscient and the upgrade screen will display all the gems you have, regardless of their location.
