Smart drops will also affect the types of items that drop for your hero, not just the stats on them. So, basically: if you're getting a smart drop, both the item type and the stats on the item itself will be tailored towards your class.
As Neva noted, though, items only have a chance to be a smart drop, so you may still see some one-off mighty belts and voodoo masks here and there. Significantly less than before, though.
I loved this post when I saw it.

If you're getting a smart drop.
I Love it. Way to half-!@# an update intended for overhauling the entire game. Brilliant. Old, game ruining habits die hard, way to stick to your guns Blizzard. I can't say I'm surprised, I actually got enough of a laugh that I felt I had to realistically define this to the community.
Too chicken-$%^- to follow through with an itemization change that would be 100% beneficial to the player without wasting our time. Classic D3 dev team. Did they let Jay Wilson back on the team?!?!?! KNEW IT.
You're gonna be grinding the same places, getting the same $%^-, all day long well after RoS comes out. For anyone that is completely fed up with Blizzard's BS half-assery, play Path of Exile. It's the Diablo 3 that the world deserves. Always new updates every 2 weeks at least. The game has 3 acts already and it's being planned for 10 ACTS! I was skeptical at first but damn, after playing PoE I can't BELIEVE I paid $60 for this bright, shiny turd. GOD, I was swindled.
Think about it, when you DO find a legendary, 99% of the time, it's absolute garbage. NOW you MIGHT get a SMART DROP YA'LL! Ooooooo!! CAN'T WAIT. I've seen a multitude of posts where people clocked their time in between legendary drops that were actually worth a damn at 700 HOURS!
The first blue that sees this is going to delete this post, but if even one person reads this before hand, I'll be satisfied.
