    I rounded up the set along with 2 angelic rings and the angelic ammy with my sorc before starting my werewolf druid. I am kicking *** through the middle of act 2 and was wondering how long this will be effective and if anybody knows of another set I should be working on finding for nm or the end of norm?

    You can probably use the set through NM too, if you find a nice weapon.

    You will more likely swap the set out for nice uniques, or runewords. Or just rare items.

    I like the Sigon's set on my melees, but I would prefer the Cleglaw's set.
    Put a 'shael' into the weapon and a PDiamond into the shield and let's roll my friend. Normal or nightmare? Doesn't matter; this set will be more than enough. The Deadly Strike and max dam. /level is nice, the 35% Crushing Blow is awesome.
    You can get a relaiable resist, especially againts the poison, the slowing mod is an other beauty and call me crazy, but I like the knockback mode, too.

    I use sigons or the death set, but only partial bits of it. To get the IAS bonus on the gloves!

    I like the idea of using Cleglaw's, but I would use only the sword and the shield. Apart from that, Death gloves and belt and Sigon's boots, armor and helm. If you don't want to use Cleglaw's, use Civerb's Cudgel.

    I think you don't need Angelic rings and ammy, as Sigon's plus an offensive act 2 merc from normal add enough are to hit almost all the time in normal mode. I usually use Manald, Cathan's and the Nokozan Relic.
