Diablo 2 Item Sets

Complete Diablo 2 Item Sets List - Diablo 2 ResurrectedDiablo 3 Item Sets Overview

Diablo 2 Item Sets items have green names and preset stats, and receive bonuses from other items in the set when they are worn together. While some individual set items are tremendously powerful, most are not much better than good magical or rare items. The trick to using Item Sets well is to wear the best pieces from them, or to selectively combine two or more items from the same set to benefit from the partial set bonuses and hidden item bonuses.

Item Set Bonus

As mentioned, each item set has set bonuses that show up when more than one item is worn. Each individual piece of the item sets also have their own, hidden, set bonuses depending on how many pieces you got, so you get both the general set bonuses as well as the hidden ones. On each item they are displayed in the modifiers as italic text.

Partial set bonuses stack. If you are wearing three items, then you will get the bonus for wearing two items as well as the bonus for wearing three items. Full set bonuses stack on top of the partial bonuses, so if there is a partial bonus of +40 Life, and a full bonus of +40 Mana, with the complete set, you would receive both +40 life and +40 mana.

Diablo 2 Item Sets Summary

This is a summary list of all the Diablo 2 item sets available in Diablo 2 and Diablo 2 Resurrected. Take note of the requirements for each item set and outlined in the summary points below.
  • iLevel is the level which the Monster must be in order to drop these items. (These values are sometimes deceptively low, since many of the exceptional and elite item types are much higher level than the clvl assigned to the set. Monsters must, of course, be able to drop the base item in order to drop that particular set item.)
  • cLevel is the minimum character level you need to be in order to wear the ENTIRE set. Some Diablo 2 item sets have the same cLevel for all items in the set. Other sets have different cLevel for each item.
  • Some Diablo 2 item sets are best suited to specific classes. These can be seen in the Class column.
  • Diablo 2 item sets were different for the Lord of Destruction expansion and the vanilla. As Diablo 2 Resurrected includes LoD, all item sets are now relevant in the remaster.

Heaven’s Brethren5581*Good for a melee fighter with armor, spiked club, heml and shield. Weapon damage increases based on cLevel. *Set items have varying cLevel.

Tal Rasha’s Wrappings2671*Made for a fire-based Sorceress. Uses armor, belt, headgear, amulet and class-specific Sorceress-only orb. *Set items have varying cLevel.Sorceress
Tancred’s Battlegear2720As a set of headgear, amulet, boots, armor and hammer (military pick), this is an notable set. Individually, not so much.
The Disciple3965*Most likely benefits a melee character. Of the armor, belt, gloves, boots and amulet, the gloves are very popular. *Set items have varying cLevel.
Trang-Oul’s Avatar3265*Optimized for a Necromancer with class-specific shield, armor, helm, belt and gloves. Helm gives +150 mana, but entire set gives many good bonuses. *Set items have varying cLevel.Necromancer

Development

Item set Failings

Diablo 2 Item Sets were meant to be one of the coolest features of Diablo II. There were going to be noticeable effects when the whole set was equipped, including different graphics on your character in the game, and of course huge secret bonuses.

Unfortunately, as Blizzard has admitted, this very cool concept isn’t implemented all that well in Diablo II. Set items aren’t good enough to wear on their own in 95% of the cases, and the set bonuses aren’t that good either. But there were improvements in Lord of Destruction expansion which are included in Diablo 2 Resurrected.

In the Lord of Destruction (included in Diablo 2 Resurrected) all the original 16 item sets are much improved by the addition of substantial partial set bonuses. The item types are still all regular and none of those old sets will serve a combat character into nightmare or hell, but they can be useful for a spellcaster.

The expansion pack also added 16 new item sets, and those are much more viable long term.
