Set Items (Diablo II)

From Diablo Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

While scavenging through corpses and chests in Sanctuary, some may happen to run across ancient gear that once belonged to a legend of Sanctuary. Unlike the mortal owners of these distinguished items, the equipment is still very solid and real. With enough perserverance, it may be possible to gather all the remaining pieces of gear that once belonged to your role model, bestowing you the same powers as it did to the original owner.

Set Stats

Sets were designed with the collectors in mind. As you equip two or more pieces of one Set, you will unlock additional qualities that were previously unknown of. There are many different Sets, each tailored for certain level ranges, fighting style and even classes. While lower Sets can be used on different characters with nearly identical results, a Sorceress will never be able to attain the full power of the Immortal King because of class restrictions. While a Set consists of two to six pieces, it is possible to wear two full sets at once depending on your setup, unleashing even more bonus stats for your character. The downside of using complete sets early in the game is the eventual replacement of them. You may keep finding better Helmets for your character, but replacing the Set helmet with the newly found one will cause the full set bonus to dissapear. This means that it is harder to part from specific pieces of the equipment, because the pros and cons of changing gear have to be considered, unlike simply replacing an old helmet with a better new one.

Set Customization

Sets can be:

  • Socketed using the appropriate quest reward or Horadric Cube Recipe.
  • Enhanced with Runes, Gems or Jewels if socket slots are open.
  • Unsocketed if the bonus of an insert isn't desirable anymore.
  • Named using the appropriate quest reward.

Sets cannot be:

  • Worn partially for full set bonus. Every piece must be equipped. Placing unwanted pieces in the inventory will not count towards equipping a full set.
  • 'Runeworded'. While you will recieve the bonus for each specific rune, you will not be able to make runewords using set items.

Set List

Initially, Sets were composed only of normal items. This rendered sets useless at higher levels, where higher base gear was more common and generally more useful. Only after Lord of Destruction was released did Blizzard add more Sets that included Exceptional and Elite items, making them a much better choice late in the game, as opposed to the normal sets.
