Followers

Why does it take this long to decide Blizzard?

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.


Would be great if you did this simple fix...

About a year ago the blue post said they were looking into offering the benefits of set items to followers...

1.08 has now released and this lingering issue still persists, has there been any movement on allowing followers the benefits of set bonus?

First of all it's mind blowing that QA testers didn't catch this prior to release. I can understand beta testers not catching it because we only played the very limited content that was provided in beta.

Second as the recent posts suggested, how long do you really need to look into this in order to fix it?

Third I'm sure the recent posters will be nicely told by a CM "please do not necro threads".

Well? Any updates on this? It's been a VERY long time.

by which am I correct to gather you mean it will grant the set bonus (aside from adventure or other inapplicable stats) to the follower?

Wow that IS some powerful necromancy. It would be nice to know how that shook out though.

Set items is easy to fix, im sure it will be done quickly, and i don't think the power of a merc will broke the game, btw they need a big buff, making them more AOE, helping by taunting, bring every enemy to him in a X yard radius,
They need to be more smart, don't bug into the wall, just follow the straigh middle and its fixed, make them always in front of where you are going, or behind for ranged one, or make it choosable, make him more usefull plz, its a good part of the solo game, so it would be nice if it's doing a real difference in our game play.

Not that blue will see this, but please make followers account wide for all level 70 Characters, thank you.

Currently I have 4 level 70's I am playing and it is not ideal to have to switch out my follower gear from character to character depending on which one I want to play that hour.

Just a simple quality of life improvement. Thank you.
