ItemSlotPercent
  • This historical chart lists the most popular Legendary and Set items that were used by level 70 hardcore Wizards, during patch 2.2.
  • Since they must be more cautious when farming for gear, hardcore Wizards do not gain the same number of Legendary or Set items on average as a softcore Wizard. Because of this, there are fewer items widely used across level 70 hardcore Wizards, compared to the Legendary and Set items popular with the softcore Wizards.
