"There's a staff legend in the demo that Diablo IV Gold transforms the spell's fireball into the triple fireball spell" former director of games Luis Barriga told Polygon(opens in new tab) in the year 2019. "The difference might be that it's true that a activated spell in the current version of Diablo 3 gives you bonuses up to a few thousand. I think we're designing the game right now to be a little bit more constrained to avoid getting us in that exponential performance curve."
If you're unfamiliar to the term "set," Items are in essence strong items of equipment that provide greater power when fully set up. They're "set" in that they're always offering the same bonuses, and, well they're part of sets.
The first time they were introduced was with Diablo 2, though it was only in Diablo 3 that they were truly dominant. It is yet to be determined what effect they'll have on how they affect the Diablo 4 meta should they appear, however we have no doubt their influence on the evolving fashion scene will be felt.
It's a bit disappointing that the Diablo 4 beta hasn't convinced me as of yet, but I can't wait to play the game again (Set Items or not).
