  • This chart lists the most popular Legendary and Set items for all level 70 hardcore Wizards in Diablo III.
  • 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.
