I feel like the uniques/ sets in this game are not very exciting or useful. Uniques should be something you are excited about and more often then not, getting an item and crafting it is best in slot for most classes. This should change.
One of the things I loved about D2 Itemization was the universal aspect of items. So many items could be used by so many different classes. It made finding a unique awesome because you know it could serve you in so many ways. Right now, many of the uniques are so specific that you would have to make a character specifically to use that item. You would have to pick the right specialization and skills for that item to be worth it at all. So many of the uniques I find just sit in my stash unused because I have not made a specific build that can potentially utilize then. But to be honest, I could probably craft an item that would be better anyways.
The bottom line is that uniques/sets need help. They need to be exciting to find and to be designed in such a way that they can be used in multiple ways.
Please…please…make this a priority. The item hunt is such a fun aspect of fun ARPG’s and right now, there are almost no items worth hunting for.
