Asmongold tries Diablo Immortal $25 Rift Simulator and gets a Legendary 5-Star Gem

Twitch Star Zack “Asmongold” stumbled upon a $25 Diablo Immortal fan-made rift simulator and earned a 5-Star Legendary Gem on his third try.

Elder Rifts in Diablo Immortal are the main source of getting the infamous Legendary Gems in the game. Almost every Diablo Immortal player looks forward to getting the item, but it requires players to spend real money to acquire the overpowered gems.

A Redditor (u/buzzycat) developed a simulator that mimicked the game’s controversial system. During a recent stream, Zack tried out the fan-made Rift Simulator and was stunned by how well it worked.

Several Twitch streamers continue to play the free-to-play mobile game Diablo on their respective channels. However, Zack recently announced that he had quit the game due to its predatory monetization schemes.

While doing a recap on Reddit during his last stream, the World of Warcraft player stumbled across a post titled “Someone (u/buzzycat) made a $25 Rift simulator for those who don’t have wallets …I got one at 1690. Kind.”

The streamer didn’t understand the content of the post at first, but soon started giggling after opening the simulator in a different browser tab. Fans present on his Twitch chat asked the streamer to play the simulated version of Rifts on stream.

Asmongold’s initial reaction upon launching the simulator was:

“Alright, let’s go. Oh! Bonus, bonus, bonus! Wait… It’s actually…”

The content creator received a Legendary 5-Star Gem on his third attempt. The happy incident made the streamer want to reinstall the game:

“Bro! Bro, I’m just reinstalling it. I will reinstall it now! I actually just got one. Wait I literally just got one right this second man! But oh my god. I have one of three rolls?”

He explained sarcastically:

“Guys! Diablo Immortal is back on the menu! Oh my god! Wow amazing game this is insane! What the heck!

Asmongold kept rolling cracks until he found another Legendary 5-Star Gem after spending $1,000 in virtual currency.

Some fans even said that the simulator is more fun compared to the actual mobile game. Recently, Twitch streamer Quin69 had to shell out NZD25,165 to get his first 5-star Legendary Gem in Diablo Immortal.
