    The "vanilla" Item Sets, Inna's, Natalya's, Zuni's, Tal Rasha's, and Immortal King's, all got buffed in Patch 2.2.0 and most of them had another item added to bring them up to six items with the potential for six-item bonuses. This helped open up a lot of new options, but it's also made gearing more difficult since lots of item slots have two great pieces with the capability to only wear one.

    For instance, The WD's Zunimassa's set has heard the most complaints since it's got a helm and gloves, and the WD has multiple build-defining legendary helms, plus Tasker and Theo as the BiS gloves. DH's are in a similar spot, with a weapon and ring in Nat's set, which really cuts down their gearing options.

    Blizzard is aware of these issues and they're taking a step to help, by adding a seventh set item (much as Firebird's has always had 7 items) to those vanilla sets, to give players more gearing options. You'll only need six items for the six-piece bonus (or five + RoRG), and with two spare slots there should be many more ways to construct your best kit. The info comes this evening from developer John Yang, via Twitter.

    As always with Twitter, the short length leaves uncertainty, but I think John's saying the 7th items will not be weapon or jewelry, since several of the vanilla sets have one item in those slots now, and it's tough to spend one piece there, since there are so many awesome legendary weapons and rings/amulets to choose from.

    Update: Zuni's is getting pants.
