I have been lucky enough to find 3 set rings in my last few play sessions, however all 3 of them are Cathan's Seal from the Cathan's Traps set (what are the odds of THAT?).

If I put both of them on, I do not get the bonus for having 2 set items (ok, understandable but worth a try). If I were to come up with one of the other pieces of this set, say the mesh, I would certainly get the 2 item bonus.

Would I get the 2 item bonus on each ring?

Short answer:


Long answer:

There are two types of set item bonuses - individual item bonuses that only apply if you are wearing multiple different items in a set, and the full set bonus, which only occurs if you are wearing every item in the set.

You will not receive the full set bonus twice if you are wearing something like Cathan's Traps or Angelic Raiment - however, you will receive whatever individual item bonuses those pieces contribute.

For this reason, two Angelic rings and the amulet are very popular for melee characters, as Angelic Wings (the amulet) gives +75 life with 2 items and Angelic Halo (the ring) gives +3 to Attack Rating per Clvl (for a total of +6 to Attack Rating per Clvl with two rings). Adding either Angelic Mantle (the ring mail) or Angelic Sickle (the sabre) means you get the three item bonus off the rings as well, so the +50% Magic Find per ring means a both +100% Magic Find and +6 to Attack Rating per Clvl.
