According to a recent investigation, someone has worked out that it could cost you $600,000 to max out your character in Diablo Immortal.
Ever since the free-to-play mobile game Diablo Immortal was released at the beginning of June, it has been very poorly received by fans. This despite earning over $24,000.000 since its launch.
Players have been investigating its potential grind to max out your character. To say the grind, as well as the financial cost, is excessive would be an understatement.
An early investigation suggested that it could cost $100,000 to max out your character. However, it seems having to spend $100k on the mobile game, would be if you were lucky.
As if $100,000 wasn’t bad enough!
To max out your character in Diablo Immortal relies heavily on earning multiple five-star legendary gems. Once you have acquired the 5-star gems via the not-so generous RNG, you would then be required to fully upgrade those gems. Furthermore, the drop rate of these gems is less than 1%.
Unfortunately, the financial cost of fully upgrading your character is far worse than we ever suspected. If the reports are true, Twitter user “SpaceDrakeCF” calculated that it might actually cost you between $300,000 to $600,000 to fully max out your character. Yikes!
It really is Diablo Immoral!
“There is a genuine development on this,” tweeted SpaceDrakeCF, kicking off a lengthy, but intriguing Twitter thread.
“Previously, it was thought that maxing out a character in Diablo Immortal would take $50k-100k, depending on gacha luck, as you can experience here. It has now come to light: you need to multiply that by 6.”
SpaceDrakeCF continued: “The sheer number of gems you need to get now makes the estimate incredibly swingy. Some will get it quickly, some will truly descend into hell.
“Yet even just multiplying the estimate by 6 is grim: it’s now between $300,000 and $600,000 to fully max out a DI character on average.”
So there you have it, the grind and financial cost of Diablo Immortal is so mindblowing, that it managed to make $100,00 look like small change. It’s easy to understand why this mobile title is Activision Blizzard’s lowest-rated game ever.
