There are 33 Sets in Diablo 2: Resurrected, usually comprised of a mix of armor and weapons. There are some sets that contain no weapons and 1 set that's only a pair of weapons. The average set has 4 pieces, but sets can range from 2 to 6 items. Some pieces within a set may have a lower character level requirement and can be worn earlier. But with a very large increase in power if you manage to acquire the entire set. So in this guide, we're going to look at probably the top 5 set items that would spend the resources to upgrade.
The Angelic Raiment is comprised of a 4-piece set: Angelic Sickle (Sabre), Angelic Mantle (Ring Mail), Angelic Halo (Ring), and Angelic Wings (Amulet). They're all decent and viable for mid-game, any new or starting character would be lucky to have them. That's because the set bonus for the Angelic Raiment consists of helpful survival stuff such as the half-Freeze duration and resistances. It also boosts up the character's Magic Find stat, making it a good stepping stone.
Sigon's Complete Steel
Sigon's set was greatly improved in the expansion and is one of the most popular sets to "twink" to a new character. It consists of Sigon's Shelter (Gothic Plate), Sigon's Guard (Tower Shield), Sigon's Visor (Great Helm), Sigon's Gage (Gauntlets), Sigon's Wrap (Plated Belt), Sigon's Sabot (Greaves). All of them are beneficial but stopping at two items is good enough as that gives the wearer some considerable amounts of Life Steal. Three items in the set can add up to enormous amounts of attack speed as well. The rest are just defensive gravy and should make a character tanky enough until they find their d2r ladder items - runes.
Death's Disguise is useful for new characters, even when only the belt and gloves are used. It's especially popular for low-level dueling. Death's Disguise only has three items, Death's Touch (War Sword), Death's Hand (Leather Gloves), and Death's Guard (Sash). Most players want the sash since it gives immunity to being Frozen which is one of the deadliest status effects in the game. Other than that, the two-piece bonus gives additional Life Steal, making it a well-balanced defensive set.
Tal Rasha's Wrappings
Tal Rasha's Wrappings is a popular choice for players focusing on magic and finding or farming good items. It consists of Tal Rasha's Lidless Eye (Swirling Crystal), Tal Rasha's Guardianship (Lacquered Plate), Tal Rasha's Horadric Crest (Death Mask), Tal Rasha's Fine-Spun Cloth (Mesh Belt), and Tal Rasha's Adjudication (Amulet). In addition to being a powerful endgame set in its own right, Tal Rasha's Wrappings are an excellent set for the magic find. Not only does the full set bonus grant a healthy amount, but the armor and belt grant 88% and 10-15% magic also find on their own, respectively, for a total of up to 178% magic find for the whole set. The armor pieces and the weapon provide the most bonuses.
This set is designed for the Druid. However, any class can wear the items in this set except for Aldur's Stony Gaze. Only the Druid can complete this set. In D2R, one of the most useful boots for starter characters is the Aldur's Advance set which consists of Aldur's Stony Gaze (Hunter's Guise), Aldur's Deception (Shadow Plate), Aldur's Rhythm (Jagged Star), and Aldur's Advance (Battle Boots). Most players go for the boots due to their awesome movement speed bonus and some additions to mana replenishment.
Besides, set items look glorious and thematic. They also come with their own lore and origins. If you want to pursue those green items and play the fashion endgame, these are the set items worth your while. Was this article helpful? For more guides, please click here.
