Diablo Immortal: Best Barbarian Legendary Gems
These are currently the best in slot legendary gems for the Barbarian class in Diablo Immortal. However, this can vary from build to build, so use it as more of a reference than an absolute.
1.) – Blood-Soaked Jade ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Poise is the gatehouse before perfection.
This is currently the best Barbarian legendary gem in the game. It increases your damage and movement speed based on how much HP you have. This is perfect for the Spin-to-Win Whirlwind Barb playstyle. As long as you avoid damage, you’ll constantly keep the maximum buff active at all times.
2.) – Seeping Bile ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Should you call a dangerous power, leave no survivors to turn it against you.
This Legendary Gem applies Poison to enemies, and it can spread if the target dies while affected by it. When you combine it with Whirlwind, you’ll be poisoning mobs like there’s no tomorrow.
It’s very good for places with high mob density, such as Elder Rifts and Challenge Rifts.
3.) – Blessing of the Worthy ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Inhale pain. Exhale victory.
When taking damage, this gem has a chance to deal damage to all nearby enemies. The damage dealt is based on your HP. This is a great gem for Barbarians because you’ll always be in the melee range of enemies.
4.) – Phoenix Ashes ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Rebirth is more valuable than a dozen lives well-lived.
A very important defensive gem that provides you with a Cheat Death effect. This can be a lifesaver (literally) in rough situations. Extremely useful for bosses with wipe mechanics. When it procs, it also provides a shield that scales with your base damage. This synergizes well with Blood-Soaked Jade. Keep in mind however that it has a 180-second internal CD.
Note: This might not work well with Undying Rage.
5.) – Chip of Stone Flesh ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
In dreams, you witness a sea of grey faces, all still as your own.
This gem applies a curse to enemies when you use crowd control on them, and causes them to explode when it expires.
The real utility of this gem however is the additional ability to stun enemies, while also increasing their damage taken. This is amazing for PvP and Challenge Rifts. Note: Internal 20-second CD per enemy.
Diablo Immortal: Best Barbarian Starter Legendary Gems
These are currently the best starter legendary gems for the Barbarian class in Diablo Immortal. If you’ve just reached max level, then these will be the first gems to aim for (unless you’re a whale).
1.) – Trickshot Gem ⭐
The first to admit their exhaustion is the loser in every battle.
Trickshot Gem allows your main abilities to consume energy at a lower rate. While it might not account for much, being able to land additional few punches can turn the tide in certain cases.
2.) – Everlasting Torment ⭐
Memories of fatal mistakes echo within this cold rock.
When you crit an enemy, this gem will also apply a DOT (Damage over Time) to it. This is incredibly strong for a 1-Star Legendary Gem.
3.) – Fervent Fang ⭐⭐
Never strike once when thrice is an option.
When attacking the same enemy, this gem will debuff them and increase their damage taken by you. This can stack up to 10 times. Great for bosses. Easy to obtain from the Battle Pass.
4.) – Berserker’s Eye ⭐
It has witnessed countless slayings, and inspired most of them.
This is more of a glass cannon gem. It increases, your damage done, but also your damage taken.
The DPS increase is generally considered to be worth the extra damage taken.
4.) – Lightning Core ⭐⭐
It bristles with electricity, and knows not when to stop.
When moving and using Primary attacks, this gem will slowly charge with electricity. Upon reaching maximum charge it will release a Chain Lightning directly to enemies. This is great for nuking tougher targets.
6.) – Chained Death ⭐
Few things impress the Askari more than unaimed arrows hitting their target.
Increases your damage based on how many enemies you’ve hit.
Great for AoE. The amount is capped at a base amount of 3 enemies.
And that’s all we’ve got for Diablo Immortal: Best Barbarian Legendary Gems as of now. We’ll update the guide once more builds are found and the general meta of the game evolves.
