The Diablo 3 Podcast #181: Patch 2.3 Item Sets
0:30 — Intro, gay marriage, heat waves, and why Aahz is stuck playing a Crusader this season. 4:45 — N3rdwards’ Wizard progress and Aahz defends the Crusader. 8:00 — Kanai’s Cube 3 items to boost current build? Power creep from Cube vs. removal of perma-CC abilities. 18:00 — With removal of Greater Rift keys (and the time to earn them in Wave of Trials) will just doing GRs repeatedly be OP in rewards? 24:00 — Torment 7-10 changes speculation. Scaling more per level than T1-T6? Keywarden (MachineWarden?) drop odds? What about drops that are 100% now in T6? 31:60 — Can Kanai’s Cube enable Legendary Gems shared account-wide? Do players want that? 36:30 — How about a purist Hardcore mode. No shared paragon/stash/LGems, etc. Ironborn Ironman HC? 42:00 — Infernal Machine reworked. HFA now socketed! Other changes not yet revealed? 46:00 — Datamined patch 2.3 item set info. New sets for Crusader and WD look awesome. “Here I am, and you’re my Spider Queen, oh yeah.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3jFDhlXccE 59:20 — Why doesn’t Bliz do better teasing upcoming cool new content and patches? 1:02:00 — Monk set is OP and doomed to PTR nerfing.
