The Hellfire Amulet introduced in patch 2.1 has a secondary affix that adds the effect a random passive ability for your class. If you do this on Monk and get Fleet Footed (Increase movement speed by 10%), will this increase movement speed if worn by another class?

  • Note: asked at a time when some amulets on the PTR did not have (class only) text.

  • Not sure why this is getting close votes. It's easily playable on the PTR, and that meets our definition of publicly available.

No. While another class can wear any Hellfire Amulet, the passives themselves only activate when the correct class is wearing them. You can see this from the preview pictures of Hellfire Amulets on the PTR:

To be sure, some of the amulets don't have the (class only) text in them, but they will work the same. It's on the PTR, bugs are to be expected.

  • Thanks. I asked because I saw items without the (class only) text.

  • At least what can be rolled as stats look decent compared to the ring. Did they change it on the PTR? Aug 19, 2014 at 18:18
  • @JonathanDrapeau I think the Amulet is supposed to be an end-game item, so it can choose from the highest level affix pools. That said, even a BIS ammy right now will have to give up at least one, probably two of the trifecta. Because with legendary gems, a slot in your ammy will do you worlds of good.

  • Yes and no, I don't see a level requirement, like the ring, so it seems fit to help level up characters. Aug 19, 2014 at 18:30
  • @JonathanDrapeau It can be, and, really, probably will be, due to the stats on it. I just don't think that that's it's primary use.
