Diablo® III

Firebird's Finery 4-set bonus works on HC?

So I made a thread regarding this set on reddit a few days ago and also spoke with the support to try get an answer with no luck sadly.

Here's the thread on reddit.

I play hardcore myself and I would really appreciate it if I could get a confirmation by a dev if it actually works on hardcore.

You would assume it would revive you on hardcore.

I am sure that it does. I do not see why it would change. The only difference I could see is them not offer that set in HC. Kind of like what they did with some runewords on D2, you had better options if you played ladder than NL.

Pretty sure it will work in HC.

- I found an amulet in HC that revives me on death (destroying the amulet, though)
- There are class passives that do practically the same thing with a much faster cooldown (Unstable Anomaly, Spirit Vessel)

The 300 second cooldown on the set effect means it's not going to save you if you're in over your head. You could also see it as just doubling your toughness.

I can't imagine that it wouldn't work on HC. Like Entitiy said, UA works, so the set bonus should as well.

the true question is going to be. who's willing to test it out on HC to make sure it works after they have gotten the 4piece bonus :)

yes it will work in hardcore. There was a thread about this in our beloved HC forums the other day:

It works, it was tested on beta and from I remember Ua procs first, then this procs after, you get 2 free jail cards. UA doesn't break any cc while Phoenix Set does break all CC's and restores you to full health, so I would never use UA if I have Phoenix Set.


This is a strong set bonus for us HC folk. Lets us drop UA and open up a passive slot for build diversity.
