Infernal Tools is one of the few sets that gets any actual use in Diablo II. It’s a nice one for a low-mid level Necromancer, with +2 to all skills, and a low clvl requirement. In fact the Str requirement for the belt is more of an object to getting into this set early on than the Clvl requirement. Even just the wand is a useful item, sort of a poor man’s Ume’s Lament.

These are the stats for the set in Diablo II Expansion Pack: Lord of Destruction, where there are partial set bonuses and hidden item bonuses.

Weapon Notes

  • Damage Bonus: This determines how you multiply the item damage by your stats to reach the actual damage. Multiply by the listed value per 100 points in that stat. All bows are 100 Dex, almost all melee weapons are 100 Str, most throwing weapons are 50/50.
  • Weapon Speed: A relative comparison to other weapons of the same type. 0 is the base -10, -20, etc is faster, 10, 20, etc is slower, always in increments of 10. Each 10 is equivalent to an SIAS item. Previously items were listed with WSM modified by IAS on the items, we have revised this to show the Weapons base speed (WSM) before ANY IAS.
  • Range: Relevant to melee weapons only. From 1 (least) to 5 (most) in D2X. Numbers are fixed across item classes: a 3 javelin = a 3 sword = a 3 hammer, etc.

Infernal Tools Set Bonuses

No huge bonuses, the choice is between using just the wand, or adding the belt and hat for the +2 Necro skills. It’s worth it early on where +1 to all for a Necro is very helpful, but you’ll want to switch to a +2 Necro skill wand as soon as you can find one or buy one. They are Clvl 30 to equip in Diablo II.
