Diablo® III

Items' icons

Hi there!
Looking at some footage and screenshots of diablo 3 while I'm waiting to get my beta invitation (fingers crossed), I just realized that it looks like the items' icon have nothing to do with the actual item when wearing it...

In d2, that was normal, but I have to say I expected this to change in d3.
Example...

What do you guys think?

Im 50/50 on that. For generic gear it does not matter. For uber epic stuff from inferno you would hope that is the case.

You're looking at an extremely dated screenshot. The current UI is way different than this.

It's likely that at that time in development, the art team wasn't done drawing every icon for every item yet, and there were many placeholders.

That's the 2008 paperdoll from the announcement.

Oh you're right !!I didn't noticed, I just typed in character UI screenshot and that screenshot poped, didn't realize it was so outdated...
I'm trying to find screenshots of a char inventory (with new UI) to see if the icons are more "customized" now...anyone has a link?
