New Zealand-based streamer Quin69 has been streaming Diablo Immortal since its release. We’ve written before about Quin spending $10,000 dollars to level up his character without getting 5-star gems.
A lot has already been said about Diablo Immortal’s monetization tactics. As of today’s stream, Quin has spent a total of $16,861.08 NZD without a 5-star legendary gem.
In the clip below, Quin’s horrible luck can be further seen as the game bugs out on him.
Explaining Legendary Gems in Diablo Immortal
5-star Legendary Gems are the most sought-after items in Diablo Immortal. These gems are incredibly powerful items that give your character general buffs and make some of their skills deal more damage. Anyone who wants to make their character the best it can be will have to get as many 5-star Legendary Gems as possible to find the ones they need.
With reports saying it can take up to $110,000 USD to fully gear your character, it’s no wonder that people are outraged at how much money has to be spent in the game.
Activision Blizzard has yet to comment on the game’s monetization. In our opinion, we expect Blizzard to stay silent as people are willing to spend thousands of dollars on the game, and this is the unfortunate state of gaming in 2022.
