  • These charts show the best Legendary and Set items for level 70 characters in Diablo III Reaper of Souls in patch 2.1.

  • 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 across all the Diablo III classes, while the class-specific pages list the best items for each individual class.
  • This data is based on account and character scans of over 5 million Diablo III characters. The charts list the best Diablo III items, used by level 70 characters who are currently playing in Reaper of Souls during patch 2.1. This guide shows the most useful gear across the classes for level 70 Diablo III PC characters, and those in the console Ultimate Evil Edition on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, or Xbox 360.
  • 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 monster kills.
    2. Most Popular Items in the Lower 75% - Softcore level 70 characters who are in the lower 75% of elite monster kills.
    3. Most Popular Items in Hardcore - Hardcore level 70 characters, regardless of elite monster kills.
  • The Legendary and Set items in these charts are primarily current items that drop right now in Reaper of Souls during patch 2.1. The exceptions are the items that are marked as (Legacy). Those are older Legendary or Set items that no longer drop, that were from patch 2.0 or previous patches. Over time the (Legacy) items become less popular and fall off the charts, as players find more powerful current items.
  • See the Most Popular Builds and Skills for the skills and builds used with this top gear, and the Legendary Gems guide for charts of the Legendary gem popularity across all the classes.
