Rank 6 Legendaries
In order to achieve an item level capped Rank 6 Legendary, you’ll need 1,650 Soul Cinders. You’ll be able to earn 360 Soul Cinders every week from Torghast, 50 Soul Cinders every week from Tormentors of Torghast event, and 100 Soul Cinders every week from the Bi-weekly assaults, for a total of 510 Soul Cinders per week.
- 1 week to upgrade to a Rank 5 Legendary
- 4 weeks to upgrade to a Rank 6 Legendary
With the current tuning, every 4 weeks (~3.24 weeks), you’ll get another max Item Level legendary.
Rank 4 Legendaries
This brings the amount of time to craft a Rank 4 Legendary down to ~3.8 weeks (from ~4.5 weeks), saving you about a week per Legendary! You’ll be able to make Rank 4 Legendaries very slightly faster then you can upgrade them to Rank 6 Legendaries, but they should be moving at about the same pace in Patch 9.1.
