I like followers. I like effects you can obtain with legendary items. I was thinking for a long time that followers were left aside. After all, to active set bonus on followers must be a couple of coding lines, i tought that no devs were actualy seeking the best use of followers (do they even play with them ?). That thing with set bonuses was coming from pure lazyness. Since all legendary works on follower, even puzzle ring, that must be it.
Today i think otherwise. Yet i still hope set bonus should apply, i think it's more complicated than a couple of coding lines. In fact, followers must be a dev nightmare.
Check this item :
It doesn't proc on follower. At first sight, i thought i was a bug. But giving it more thoughts i realize that there's a pattern. The pet of this item doesn't proc on hit (attack or receive) like other proc. But is effective when equipped. In someway the all itemisation system architecture limits itself on followers. That fatal flaw is a definitive no-go for set bonus on follower.
That is sad indeed.
