Diablo Immortal: Best Demon Hunter Legendary Gems
These are currently the best in slot legendary gems for the Demon Hunter 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 Demon Hunter legendary gem in the game. It increases your damage and movement speed based on how much HP you have. 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. You’ll be proccing this affix like crazy when using Crowbow Shot with Vengeance. It’s very good for places with high mob density, such as Elder Rifts and Challenge Rifts.
3.) – 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.
4.) – Howler’s Call ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
If not held tightly, the crystal surges forth of its own accord.
When using primary attacks, this gem has a chance to summon a wolf that deals damage in a path.
The only downside is that it can completely miss the mobs sometimes.
5.) – Echoing Shade ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Glorify uniqueness, and you forget the power in duplication.
This gem has a chance to proc a clone while you’re attacking enemies. The clones can taunt, so it can be great at keeping enemies away from you to mitigate damage.
6.) – 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.
Upgrading it can increase the number of clones to 4, likely making this gem one of the best in the game to use.
Diablo Immortal: Best Demon Hunter Starter Legendary Gems
These are currently the best starter legendary gems for the Demon Hunter 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.) – 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.
As a ranged class, you generally want to avoid getting hit anyway, so it’s a win-win situation.
2.) – Everlasting Torment ⭐
Memories of fatal mistakes echo within this cold rock.
3.) – Ca’arsen’s Invigoration ⭐
With each swing of your weapon, dissonant voices sing proudly in your ears.
The affix of this gem is pretty basic and isn’t that great for most classes. However, as Demon Hunters use their Primary attacks a lot of the time, it’s pretty good for them.
4.) – 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.
5.) – 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.) – Power & Command ⭐⭐
Adaptation is the only strategy that can never be countered.
This gem will provide two alternating buffs that will increase the damage of either your Primary attacks, or your skills. As Demon Hunters are constantly using both of these, you’ll always get the benefit that this gem provides.
And that’s all we’ve got for Diablo Immortal: Best Demon Hunter Legendary Gems as of now. We’ll update the guide once more builds are found and the general meta of the game evolves.
