Diablo Immortal players who want to max their characters out in Blizzard’s new mobile-oriented hack-and-slash MMO will need a ton of money. That’s according to a new video shared by YouTuber Bellular News, who elaborated on the monetization system of the game and revealed that it costs $110,000 worth of Legendary Gems to fully upgrade a character. Legendary Gems comprise one of Diablo Immortal’s three progression pillars, the top-rated versions of which are not available to F2P players currently and can only be obtained via microtransactions. Diablo Immortal launched last week for both PC and mobile platforms.

Matt and Michael of Bellular News also make an argument that Diablo Immortal’s Legendary Gems are a deliberately convoluted system, explaining that it would take roughly 10 years of playtime for a F2P player to fully kit out a character in the game’s current iteration. Specifically, Legendary Gems aren’t even a guaranteed drop for paying players, as they are only randomly awarded upon purchasing Legendary Crests (i.e. loot boxes) – which may be the reason why Diablo Immortal didn’t launch worldwide.
