In diablo 2, I could have two sets of weapons equiped and could easily toggle between them with the W key (a dps set and a mf set).

Is it possible to equip multiple sets of weapon in diablo 3, with a key to toggle quickly between them?

No, there is no such option in Diablo III.

(Blizzard decided against it after they found out that during play-testing, players tended to switch to Magic Find gear just before landing the final hit on a boss :)

Oh boo, MF gear was the whole point of wanting a 2nd set of weapons! :) – Rachel May 16 '12 at 12:07

You can set up macros to hot swap gear sets prior to boss kills, chest loots etc.

How would you go about this? There is nothing in game to support gear swapping macros. – Frank Jun 18 '12 at 14:02
I can imagine this being a punishable offense due to the decision to not have this feature in game, so be wary about using anything like this. – theorise Jun 18 '12 at 14:12
@theorise Just out of curiosity, is there language in the end-user license agreement that forbids this? – Atav32 Jun 19 '12 at 0:29
If a Diablo III player is found to be cheating or using hacks, bots, or modifications in any form, then as outlined in the Diablo III end user license agreement, that player can be permanently banned from the game. This means that the player will be permanently unable to log in to® to play Diablo III with his or her account. – kalina Jun 21 '12 at 13:03
