S Tier

TierLegendary GemsInformation
SBane of the TrappedThis is the most commonly used damage Legendary Gem, increasing your damage by 15% multiplicatively against enemies under the effect of control-impairing effects. You can level this Gem all the way up to rank 150. Every upgrade will increase the damage gain by 0.3% up to a maximum of 60% total. Control-impairing effects are: Fear, Stun, Freeze, Chill, Knockback, Immobilize and Slow including the Rank 25 effect of this Gem, making it proc itself in a 15 yard radius.
SBane of the StrickenEach attack you perform against an enemy increases the damage it takes from your attacks by 0.80%. You can level this Legendary Gem all the way up to rank 150. Every upgrade will increase the damage gain by 0.01% up to a maximum of 2.30% per stack. The stacks are additive with themselves and multiplicative with all other damage bonuses. The secondary effect increases damage against Rift Guardians and Act Bosses by 25% multiplicatively.
SZei’s Stone of VengeanceIncreases damage by 4% multiplicatively for every 10 yards between the player (pet damage is also based on the player-monster distance) and the enemy hit. Maximum 20% at 50 yards. You can level this Gem all the way up to rank 150. Every upgrade will increase the damage by another 0.08% per stack up to a maximum of 80% total.
The tooltip ismisleading as the first damage bonus is already active when you are right on top of the monster. That also means the maximum damage bonus of 80% at rank 150 is already reached at 40 yards. The damage goes up in 10 yard steps at 10, 20, 30 and 40 yards, meaning there is no additional damage increase at 4 or 5 yards etc..
The secondary effect has a 20% chance to stun the enemy for 1 second when you hit them. This chance is affected by the skill’s proc coefficient. Overall this effect is not very useful and can even have a negative impact as it adds random crowd control immunity to monsters when proc’d. This can be particular annoying on Rift Guardian fights where some boss killer builds rely on controlling the boss to deal optimal damage like the AoV Heaven’s Fury Crusader with Bracer of Fury.
STaegukGain 2% additive damage for 1.5 seconds when you spend resources with a channeling skill. This effect stacks up to 10 times. You can level this Gem all the way up to rank 150. Every upgrade will increase the additive damage by another 0.04% per stack up to a maximum of 8% total. Furthermore the rank 25 bonus increases your Armor by 2% for each stack. At max rank and stacks this Gem provides a whopping 80% additive damage increase as well as a 20% Armor buff.
SGem of EaseThis is the only legendary Legendary Gem that is socketed into the Weapon slot! Every monster that is killed grants 500 additional experience points. You can level this Gem all the way up to rank 150. Every upgrade will increase the experience points gained by 50 up to a maximum of 8,000 total points per monster. This effect scales with Torment difficulty but not with Greater Rift levels. If you want to find out more in-depth experience scaling mechanics about Experience per Kill and more check out this post. The rank 25 effect allows you to use this Gem and the weapon it is socketed into at any character level.

A Tier

TierLegendary GemsInformation
AEnforcerAll pets gain 15% multiplicative damage. You can level this Gem all the way up to rank 150. Every upgrade will increase the damage gain by another 0.3% up to a maximum of 60% total. With the secondary rank 25 effect reducing pet damage taken by 90% they become almost immortal.
APain EnhancerCritical hits cause the enemy to bleed for 2,500% Physical damage over 3 seconds. You can level this Gem all the way up to rank 150. Every upgrade will increase the Physical damage by another 50% weapon damage up to a maximum of 10,000% total.
AGogok of SwiftnessHitting an enemy gives you 1% Attack Speed and 0.5% Dodge Chance for 4 seconds, stacking up to 15 times. You can level this Gem all the way up to rank 150. Every upgrade will increase the Dodge Chance by another 0.01% weapon damage up to a maximum of 2% per stack total.
On top of that the rank 25 bonus increases your Cooldown Reduction by 1% per stack. On Rank 150 with 15 stacks active this Gem will give you at 15% Increased Attack Speed, 30% Dodge Chance and 15% Cooldown Reduction. Generally only skills with a proc coefficient can give you a Gogok of Swiftness stack, meaning that Pets and item procs will give you no stacks. However, this is not a hard rule and there are exceptions.
AGem of Efficacious ToxinThis Gem applies a Poison Damage over Time effect for 2000% weapon damage over 10 seconds onto enemies when attacking them. You can level this Gem all the way up to rank 150. Every upgrade will increase the Poison damage by another 50% weapon damage up to a maximum of 9,500% total.
The rank 25 secondary bonus is the reason this Gem is played in every Support build in the game: All enemies you poison take 10% additive increased damage from all sources (including your party members) and also deal 10% less damage. Only the additive damage increase effects stacks with multiple Gem of Efficacious Toxin in the party!
ABane of the PowerfulThe player gains 20% multiplicative damage for 30 seconds after killing an Elite pack. In case of Rare (Yellow) Elites you also need to kill all the minions to receive this bonus. Rift Guardians, Act Bosses, Treasure Goblins and unique purple Monsters also give you the buff when slain.
You can level this Legendary Gem all the way up to rank 150. Every upgrade will increase the duration of the multiplicative damage buff by 1 second up to a maximum of 180 seconds. The secondary effect increases damage against Elites by 15%, which is additive to other Elite Damage sources like from The Furnace and multiplicative to base damage. Furthermore the secondary effect reduces damage taken from Elites by 15%. This bonus is multiplicative to other Elite damage reduction sources like Blackthorne’s Battlegear (3) Bonus.

B Tier

TierLegendary GemsInformation
BBoon of the HoarderWhen you kill a monster there is a 25% base chance for the monster to drop multiple Gold piles in an explosion. For each rank up of this Gem the chance increases by 1.5% and caps out at rank 50 with 100% chance. The secondary effect gives 30% Movement Speed for 3 seconds after picking up Gold. This bonus can exceed the 25% base Movement Speed cap.
BBoyarsky’s Chip16,000 additional Thorns damage is added to your character. You can level this Legendary Gem all the way up to rank 150. Every upgrade will increase this bonus by another 800 up to a maximum of 136,000 Thorns damage in total. The secondary effect taunts the first enemy hit with a primary skill to attack you for 2 seconds.
This Gem’s enormous Thorns amount significantly reduces the importance of Thorns rolls on your items as it is so high in comparison. This generally makes Thorns builds a bit easier to gear. The secondary taunt effect is rather annoying for most builds as it slowly adds crowd control resistance to monsters.
BEsoteric AlterationThis Legendary Gem reduces all non-Physical damage taken by 10%. You can only level this Gem to rank 100. Every upgrade will increase the damage reduction by another 0.5% up to a maximum of 60% total. The rank 25 bonus is one of the strongest in the game. It increases your resistance to Cold, Fire, Lightning, Poison and Arcane by 75% while below 50% Life. This secondary alone is about an additional 40% total damage reduction to non-Physical damage. Alltogether these 2 effects combine for approximately 75% total non-Physical damage reduction.
BIceblinkYour Cold skills now always Chill monsters and slow their Movement Speed by an additional 5.0% for 3 seconds. You can only level this Gem to rank 50. Every upgrade will increase the slow effect by 0.4% up to a maximum of 25% total.
This Gem however, is mainly used for its secondary effect: 10% additional Critical Hit Chance debuff against Chilled or Frozen enemies. This effect procs itself with the primary Bonus as long as you use any Cold skill. This effect does not work for most Damage over Time (DoT) skills (e.g. Rend, Haunt) as their damage is calculated directly from the player’s sheet Critical Hit Chance and Critical Hit Damage. This effect does not stack with other players wearing this Gem.
BInvigorating GemstoneEach successful hit done by the player increases healing by 1% multiplicatively for 5 seconds. This effect can be stacked up to 10 times and each new stack refreshes the duration of all stacks. You can level this Gem all the way up to rank 150. Every upgrade will increase the heal effect by 0.02% up to a total of 4%.
The secondary rank 25 effect grants you immunity to all control-impairing effects and is comparable to effects from skills like Ignore Pain or Inner Temple of Protection. Most enemies will interrupt your channels (such as Town Portal) even with this Gem equipped.
BLegacy of DreamsWhile you have no set bonuses equipped (you can get this bonus if set items are equipped as long as no 2-piece or any other set bonus is active) every legendary item increases your damage dealt by 3.75% multiplicatively and reduces all damage taken by 2%. The multiplicative damage effect increases by 3.75% per level to a maximum of 375% at max Gem rank 99.

The secondary effect, unlocked at rank 25, doubles this bonus for a total of 750% damage and 4% damage reduction per Ancient or Primal item. As players in Diablo III can wear a maximum of 13 items, the maximum total bonus from this Gem is 13 x 750% = 9750% damage and 13 x 4% = 52% damage reduction. This effect is very similar to the Legacy of Nightmares set, but it has the benefit of granting you half the bonus for non-ancient items and it only costs you one Gem instead of two Rings. With this Gem equipped it is okay to miss out on a few ancient items as you only lose around 4% damage and 2% toughness if you are missing 1 Ancient Item.
BMirinae, Teardrop of the StarweaverGives a 15% chance on hit to smite a nearby enemy for 3,000% Holy damage and heal yourself for 3% of your maximum Life. You can level this Gem all the way up to rank 150. Every upgrade will increase the Holy damage by another 60% weapon damage up to a maximum of 12,000% total.

On top of that the rank 25 effect separately smites nearby enemies every 3 seconds. The initial 15% chance to smite is further reduced by proc coefficients of the used skill. It does not trigger from your pet attacks and hits a random enemy within a 25 yard radius upon proc.
BMolten Wildebeest’s GizzardThis Legendary Gem increases Life Regeneration by 10,000 per Second. You can level this Gem all the way up to rank 150. Every upgrade increases the Life Regeneration by 1,000 per Second up to a total of 160,000 per second. On top of that the secondary rank 25 grants you a shield for 200% of your total sheet Life per Second after not taking any damage (including damage absorbed by shields) for 4 seconds. Life per Second effect from skills, passives and other items also count towards this shield effect.
BMoratorium35% of all damage taken is instead staggered and dealt to you over 3 seconds. You can level this Gem all the way up to rank 150. Every upgrade will increase the duration by 0.1 seconds up to a total of 18 seconds at the highest rank. On top of that the secondary rank 25 provides you a 20% chance to clear all previously staggered damage. The staggered damage also applies to shields consuming your shield slowly if not cleared by the rank 25 effect.
BMutilation GuardGain 10% melee damage reduction. You can level this Gem up to rank 100. Every upgrade increases melee damage reduction by 0.5% up to a total of 60% at rank 100. On top of that the secondary rank 25 provides the ability to move unhindered through enemies while you are below 50% life. This effect is the same as Illusory Boots.
BRed Soul ShardThis Gem can only be found in the January Anniversary Darkening of Tristram Event. Periodically struggle for control, unleashing a Ring of Fire that deals 12,500% Fire Damage to enemies that it passes through. You can level this Gem all the way up to rank 150. Every upgrade will increase the Fire damage by another 50% weapon damage up to a maximum of 20,000% total.
The rank 25 bonus reduces your cooldown on skills by 75% and removes your resource costs completely after you level up for 30 seconds. The Cooldown Reduction part is displayed on your in-game stats and works with Captain Crimson’s Trimmings damage increase. The Resource Cost reduction part however does not work as a toughness increase and is not displayed in the in-game stats!
This Gem can be used at any Character Level and is the only legendary Gem that is socketed into a Helm. The Fire damage surrounds you in a circle bursting to all sides and can crit. It procs every 30 seconds. It is indicated by a 2 second self stun. This stun duration can be influenced and avoided with crowd control reduction and immunity from skills like Ignore Pain.
BSimplicity’s StrengthIncreases the damage of primary skills by 25% multiplicatively. Primary skills are skills that do not cost Resource to cast and are normally rather weak in terms of damage output. They usually generate Resource. Wizard and Witch Doctor have Signature Spells like Poison Dart or Magic Missile that do not generate resource, they are considered primary skills hence buffed by this gem.
You can level this Gem all the way up to rank 150. Every upgrade will increase damage by 0.5% up to a maximum of 100% total. The rank 25 bonus grants 4% healing of your maximum health whenever you hit with a primary skill. It can only heal you once per cast even if you hit multiple enemies.
BWreath of LightningGives a 15% chance on hit to gain 4 second buff that deals 1,250% Lightning damage every second to enemies within 30 yards. This effect sounds similar to the Conduit Pylon Lightning. You can level this Gem all the way up to rank 150. Every upgrade will increase the damage by 25% per stack up to a maximum of 5,000% total. The rank 25 bonus increases your Movement Speed by 25% when the Lightning buff is active. The initial 15% proc chance is further reduced by proc coefficients of the used skill and does not trigger by attacks from your pets.
