A fan assembled all six of the class-specific item sets in Reaper of Souls, took pics of them on each gender for each class, and provided views from all angles. It’s quite a useful presentation, and credit to Zeldrin for creating it.
I found it interesting since I’d never actually seen the full sets so clearly. Everyone’s got a few or all of the items from each set, but usually mixed with other gear, some transmogged or vanishing dyed, etc. So here they are, unadulterated and straight from the D3 artist’s tablets to your screen. All the sets (except for Firebird’s, which adds a source) consist of six items: helm, shoulders, chest, gloves, legs, and boots, so visually they are pretty much apples to apples comparisons. So here are Reaper of Souls Item Sets Illustrated:
Helltooth Harness (armory), Witch Doctor set. Helm, shoulders, chest, gloves, legs, boots. (This set apparently lacks the light weight and flexibility of the huge slabs of unrefined steel that the other classes have strapped to their bodies, as both of these weary medical professionals are bent double beneath the weight of their assorted shark teeth, baboon femurs, and coconut shells.)
Diablo 3 “Gear Sets”
This whole presentation reminds me of the hot (pre-game) topic of Gear Sets. We’ve got a big wiki article about them, and “Gear Sets” was a regular news category from 2010-2012, with 29 news items so categorized.
Lots on this show, including PTR Patch 2.1′s big changes, legendary item buffs, Paragon 1000 achieved, the Stash space emergency and micro-transactions, Diablo 3′s story and “demon soul hooks,” and Blizzcon 2014 Diablo 3 expansion announcement expectations. Featuring Flux, N3rdwords and Neinball.

Blizzard Under Investigation by Korean FTC over RefundsPosted 29 May 2012 by
Blizzard had a tough time at launch with Diablo 3, I think we can safely say it was not one of the more successful launches of a videogame in recent years.
According to the Korean Times, Blizzard are now under investigation by the Korean Fair Trade Commission for refusing to give Korean gamers who are not happy with the connectivity issues refunds. The FTC are investigating whether Blizzard has broken the Korean law on electronic commerce and commercial contracts
Apparently the FTC “raided the firm’s Seoul office Monday and secured related documents and other evidence with which it will determine whether Blizzard broke the law”. Due to what the KT are citing as “poor service”, hundreds of users have filed complaints prompting action to be taken by the FTC.
Kim Hyung-bae a spokesman for the FTC added “We have received many complaints from Diablo 3 users” and confirmed an investigation is now underway by the FTC.
Blizzard are being investigated by the FTC for what they say could be “unfair contract” conditions which means refunds would not be available to consumers and that Blizzard should have been better prepared for the mass influx of users to the game on launch.
Blizzard have had to deal with a lot of complaints since launch, not just in Korea, but in the US and Europe. We’ve seen a lot of complaints from users unhappy with the state of the launch. However, I think it’s safe to say that most of us expected the launch to be rocky and things have improved greatly in the past couple of weeks.
Reports I’ve heard from European and American customers asking for refunds have said they had no trouble with the process.
