In the wake of Diablo Immortal’s recent launch, gamers have speculated that the complete enhancement of a character might require a staggering sum of $110,000 worth of precious gems. The notion revolves around the fact that every character necessitates six flawless five-out-of-five gems, with each gem carrying an average price tag of approximately $16,000.

Brace yourself for a marvel that expands its horizons with five enchanting slots, eager to embrace an array of legendary gems thirsting to ascend to unimaginable heights. To reach the pinnacle of power, a character now requires the possession of a staggering 36 five-star gems, instead of a mere six. But wait, there’s more! Should you dare to embark on this extraordinary journey, prepare to part with 1,000 eternal orbs to acquire a mystical Dawning Echo from a mysterious vendor. And alas, this enchantment comes at an additional cost of approximately $30 per awakening.
Ever since the release of Diablo Immortal, fans have been engrossed in passionate discussions about the financial implications of acquiring a flawless five-star gem. In addition to those discussions, there is a faction of fans who have delved into the realm of binomial probability calculators to ascertain the average expenditure required to obtain such a coveted gem.
Input: With the ability to witness the probabilities of obtaining a specific gem within the game’s Rifts, an avid enthusiast has ingeniously devised a simulator for expenditure. Remarkably, it required a staggering sum of $37,250 in simulated currency to acquire a set of six flawless five-out-of-five gems, while a whopping $159,250 was expended in obtaining a total of 36 gems.
In terms of comparison, consider this: Genshin Impact, a remarkably triumphant gacha game, is speculated to have amassed approximately $33 million in revenue from iOS and Google Play in the month of May. This impressive sum could easily cover the expenses of ten Diamond Impact users for that entire month, spanning across countless user accounts throughout the world. Witness the date: June 26, 2022.
According to Carpe Fulgur founder Andrew Dice’s Twitter post, it proves to be quite challenging to determine an accurate count of the ideal gems required, considering the unpredictable factor of luck. Nonetheless, based on the widely accepted calculations for six gems, the range falls between $50,000 to $100,000. Acquiring the essential 36 five-out-of-five gems would entail multiplying this range by six, resulting in a fresh estimate of $300,000 to $600,000.
According to Dice, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. If you desire to enhance extra characters or seek a specific gem, be prepared to invest even more.
