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.

@Diablo on Hardcore and End GamePosted 28 Sep 2010 by
Will hardcore characters be more powerful than normal?—Spectrusv
No intent, no. But they’ll definitely have more prestige and flashy things to show off for being so awesome.—Diablo
Layering monster roles is one. Mixing enemies with specific roles together to create more interesting combat.—Diablo
What’s the reasoning behind aiming for chars to be ~60 after completing hell? Want to get rid of xp grind post “completion”?—Drbuttox
It affected player power in un-fun ways. We think there are more fun ways to pull off end-game.—Diablo
The beta test question picks up from a previous tweet. I’ll quote the whole thing, since it’s ever so much more entertaining when read in context and sequence.
So is diablo 3 going to have a beta I’m going to take a no reply as a yes—DrHighlen
Replying. What do you think now!?!? —Diablo
yes you are having a beta because you knew if you didn’t reply it would mean yes so you had to reply with out truly replying.—DrHighlen
My head hurts.—Diablo
As a clever commenter pointed out last time, we should all oppose a Diablo 3 Beta test, since World of Warcraft has beta tests. As all loyal old time Diablo fans know, anything done in the most successful computer RPG in human history is automatically bad, and should therefore be excluded from Diablo III.
