Best Legendary and Set Items

The most popular armor and weapons used by level 70 characters in patch 2.0.
  • These charts show the best Legendary and Set items for level 70 characters in Diablo III, playing the Reaper of Souls expansion in patch 2.0.
  • Select a Diablo III class below, to see the most popular armor and weapons for that class.
  • See the Best Items for All Classes section below for items that are the most popular across all the classes.

Best Items for All Classes

  • The charts here list the Legendary and Set items that are the most popular across all classes in Diablo III. These charts contain the best legendary items for all the Diablo III classes combined, while the class-specific pages list the best items for each individual class.
  • This data is taken from the scans of over 3 million Diablo III characters. The charts reflect the best Diablo III items, used the most by level 70 characters in the Reaper of Souls expansion during patch 2.0.
  • There are three charts of items, representing three groups of level 70 Diablo III characters:
    1. Most Popular Items in the Top 25% - Softcore level 70 characters who are in the top 25% of Elite Kills.
    2. Most Popular Items in the Lower 75% - Softcore level 70 characters who are in the lower 75% of Elite Kills.
    3. Most Popular Items in Hardcore - Hardcore level 70 characters, regardless of Elite Kills.
  • The Legendary and Set items in these charts can be from three different editions:
    1. The standard Legendary and Set items are the ones that drop now in Diablo III, since patch 2.0. These are the vast majority of the most popular items at level 70, as seen in these charts.
    2. The (Legacy) Legendary and Set items are no longer available, but dropped before patch 2.0. A few of those older items from level 60 are still useful even at level 70, and they show up in the charts.
    3. The (Old Legacy) Legendary and Set items are very old, as they only dropped before Diablo III PC patch 1.0.4. These can be seen in very low percentages in some of the Demon Hunter Best Items charts, a handful of items from the Demon Hunter Set in that era, which provided a powerful 4-piece set bonus.
  • See the Most Popular Builds and Skills for the skills and builds that are used with this top gear, and for details on how the data is collected.
