This post will be updated as new sets are added.

Swapping
When a set bonus is achieved by equipping a weapon, shield, orb, or anything held in (not worn on) the hand, the hand-held item is "locked in" for that mode of combat. Therefore:
  • If you equip a hand-held item in a melee slot to fulfill a set bonus you must keep that specific hand-held item equipped when engaging in melee combat.
  • If you equip a hand-held item in a ranged slot to fulfill a set bonus you must keep that specific hand-held item equipped when engaging in physical ranged combat.
You may temporarily swap one or both hand-held set-piece items (either melee for ranged or ranged for melee) and maintain the set's bonus. However, the bonuses granted by the individual "lost" item(s) won't apply. E.g., a ranger using Scepter, Orb, and Boots of Might to gain a level may swap out the Scepter and Orb to use a ranged weapon, but may not use any other melee weapons. During the swap-out, the ranger loses the +2 Strength bonus granted by the Orb of Might, but maintains the +1 level granted by the Might set.

Stacking
Assuming all the required pieces can be equipped simultaneously, characters may benefit from more than one set bonus—either from different sets or within the same subset. E.g., a character enjoying the Might Quintet bonus also gains the Trio & Quartet bonuses.

Uniqueness
To qualify for a set bonus, the set's quota must be filled with unique items if the items are Ultra Rare or lower in rarity. E.g., a ranger may wield two +1 Mithral Long Swords, but they only count as one when it comes to qualifying for the Mithral set bonus. However, if both of the set weapons are either Relics (5-point star) or Legendaries, they count as two items toward the set's quota.

Re: Complete List of Set Bonuses 8 years 1 month ago #2

I think I can authoritatively say no other complete sets exist.  I also think it's safe to say that the Rogue can't use any set in existence. <br /><br />It was definitely hinted that the Crown of Might was to be part of an "of Might" set.  There was also talk of adding more pieces to the Mithral set, with details as yet sketchy.  <br />In theory, other sets could be made with existing items as pieces:  "of the Underdark", Troll Hide, or Dragonhide items could certainly become parts of a set if more items were added, along with some "set bonus".<br /><br />As for the existing Mithral set, we definitely need a set bonus clarification from the top. <br />

Yes, the might set is to be Crown, Orb, and Sceptre.  This one will also have a negative effect for the set.
There is no charge for awesomeness, or attractiveness.

<br />The Mithral Set*:<br />
  • Mithral Cap
  • <br />
  • Mithral Chainmail
  • <br />
  • +1 Mithral Long Sword
<br /><br />I'm not sure about Mithral. I've read conflicting stories. Some say +2 to hit (with the Long Sword) vs. undead. Others say half damage from breath weapons. And it also looks like there may be a five-item set in the future.<br />
<br /><br />So far the three mentioned are it, the Mithral set is half damage from breath weapons.  There will likely be others in the future, but nothing has been decided and will not be for GC 2009.<br /><br />Dave<br />

<br /><br />I was only able to find the Crown of Might (2009). Are the Orb and Scepter yet to be created/released?

Is the Mithral set 1/2 damage from BW or Immune from BW? The spreadsheet, though not official, has it as Immune.

Dave said 1/2 damage a couple of posts up; we can take that as truth.

The wizard can't use any set either, since can't use helmet or swords.  However, I'm not complaining, since wizards have almost all the wands for themselves.
My posts are back! Yay!

Amorgen has been informed and, since he's currently on the road traveling, it will be updated as soon as he can access a computer to fix it.

Not that I am aware, most are weapons, so having a set would not be beneficial.
