Shen's Delight was a Legendary Gem in Diablo III, scheduled to be added in patch 2.1.2 or 2.2.0. It could only be socketed into Amulets and Rings, and dropped from Greater Rift Guardians. It was cut from release for unknown reasons, its graphics used for Boyarsky's Chip with minor modifications. Its effect is partially reminiscent to Molten Wildebeest's Gizzard.

It granted the Nephalem an absorption shield whenever they received overhealing (healing while already at full Life) through Life per Hit and Life per Second, up to a percentage of their maximum Life. Other sources of healing would not contribute to this shield. Upgrading increased the maximum shield capacity.

The rank 25 special property for this gem is unknown.

Due to its powers, this gem would have been a potent way to increase one's Toughness while sacrificing as little in damage or other stats as possible; given enough ranks, a hero could have had a great degree of health that most others could only dream of having.

This gem would have been the sixth Legendary Gem to be purely defensive in its effects.
