Diablo® III

Leaderboards ranking PTR v.4

08/14/2014 06:53 AMPosted by Hippotion
So to upgrade level 0 gems, it's more efficient to do a few lowish rifts right? Got GR28 and GR29 keys, but now I should do some low rifts to upgrade gems to 10-15 before I continue going higher?

I wonder how much difference upgrading of gems make.


Yep, starting from Rank 0 gem you want to at least clear GR12 to always have +10 = 100% upgrade chance for all three of your upgrades (0 to 1, 1 to 2, and 2 to 3)

Upgrading to 25 =
GR12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30 to get to Rank 20 guaranteed (That's 7 trial keys)

Then once the difference is between Rift & Ranking is between 0-6 is always 60% upgrade chance, +10% each extra level (70% @ 7 delta) So keep running GR30 to get from Gem Rank 20 to 25 which will probably be 2-3 more Trial Keys.

Upgrading after Tier 30 GR
20-21 = 90% chance to upgrade
21-22 = 80% chance to upgrade
22-23 = 70% chance to upgrade
24-25 = 60% chance to upgrade

That being said, I see no point to push gem ranks on PTR! (Still Rank 3 Mirinae!) Just planning for Live gemgrading.

Rank 50+ gems kinda skew the top results, but we can't say monks don't play on PTR anymore!

There are so many new names on Monk leaderboard now. Most I have not seen in the previous PTR iterations.

Didn't know you can get lvl 50 gems. I thought they would cap at 35-40 (due to low upgrade chances). Did they change anything in the upgrade system?

They will soft cap at 40ish if current PTR goes live, but a few folks leveled their gems to 150+ in PTR3 (level 200 secondary unlocked) and kept their levels into PTR4 (level 25 secondary unlocked).

Think that made sense!

Oh I see. That would make sense yes.

I really hope they do buff some of the gems because if they don't some will never see any use.

Anyone else's leaderboards load .... slowly.

General Observations:
Condemn Crusaders seem like the new GR spec
Raekors Charge for Barbs
Firebird's for Wiz
WD/DH still mostly the same as live
and Sunwuko for Monks!

Will update new rankings once I fire up the PC. On the laptop now and don't have PTR installed here.

@Davlok (or anybody else) Feel free to update the thread with the latex rankings if you feel like it's worth your time. :p

Update after PTR V5 ?

I didn't know there was PTR v.5. Nothing seem to have changed. I'll not be updating leaderboards until gems are wiped as it is kind of pointless right now imo.

2 Monks at 37 now.

On average we are ahead of WD, neck with Barb/Wiz,Cru, and only behind DH like all else.

We are fixed.

not quite imo. but i'm not expecting any major changes atm either tbh ;(

edit: i'm kinda hoping they do something with raiment though, the only it had going for it is that it was powerful at least. as it is now on PTR no one is gonna use this thing.
