Boyarsky’s Chip Legendary Gem Diablo 3

Boyarsky’s Chip is a Legendary Gem in Diablo III, added in patch 2.4.0. It can only be socketed into Amulets and Rings, and drops from Greater Rift Guardians.

It increases Thorns damage done. Upgrading increases the damage bonus even further.

At rank 25, it also Taunts the first enemy hit by any Primary skill. A skill that hits more than one enemy at once will Taunt the closest one to the hero. Considering the usual bonus, it is actually beneficial for the wielder, as enemies will be forced to attack them and therefore receive more hits from their own attacks. Primary skills include even Witch Doctor and Wizard Signature Spells.

This gem was introduced as a match for the Thorns of the Invoker set and Thorns revamp in 2.4. As such, it is most useful for Crusaders, but may be used by any class. For maximum effect, this gem can be combined with other Thorns-enhancing items, like Hack, which applies Thorns damage to offensive attacks.

Gem Properties

  • Adds 16000 Thorns.
    • Upgrade: +800 Thorns damage per Rank.
  • Taunt the first enemy hit by Primary skills for 2 seconds (Requires Rank 25)

Boyarsky’s Chip Mechanics

16,000 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.

Boyarsky’s Chip Best Use

Mandatory in Thorns builds, useless everywhere else: Awesome for all Thorns related build like the Akkhan Invoker Bombardment Crusader.

Legendary Gem Creation:

If you need extra Legendary Gems to level up, you can make the Rift Guardian in any Greater Rift drop a new Rank 0 Gem by removing all the Legendary Gems with the same name from your Equipment, Inventory and Stash.

The safest way to do that is to put them into the Inventory of different character.
