Pretty straightforward. If I equip my follower with set items, will he/she gain the set bonuses for multiple set pieces?

  • I don't have any set pieces to test with, but I would suggest using one that increases an attribute when 2 or more pieces are together and see if the stats are indeed increased. Remember that the followers benefit from a times-2 bonus for main stats from objects (vitality, intelligence, strength and dexterity) so a +100 to vit will result in a +200 to vit for followers.

A follower cannot activate a set bonus for themselves yet. Check out the recent blue post here by Vaeflare.

As it stands currently, in order to receive the benefits of set bonuses, the set items need to be equipped on your main character. Set items equipped on Followers will not contribute to set bonuses.

We’re aware that this isn’t ideal, and we’re looking into some possibilities that would make using set items on Followers a more appealing choice in the future.
