Oh... the new DMO hat is also NOT a wiz hat..

Wizard
topic

complain

unbelieviable

So... Why did blizz change the chest of UE (DH) to Cloak even though it still use the icon and CG of the original Chest armor.?

Why is wizard the ONLY class that ALWAYS have Class Specific Set without Class specific helm?

Barb has belt
Monk has stone
Doc has mask
Hunter has cloak

But Wiz can't get a hat...
Oh, for a second I thought you were talking about the Crown of Primus, which is a wizard hat.

...but no one uses that, so... hmmm...

As for DH and UE and why it's a cloak. Well. Discipline, yeah? If you have a set based on having extra discipline I'm pretty sure DHs will complain they miss out on 12 discipline if they're stuck with a set chest armor.

Other than that, I don't have much else to say.

AP on crit for wiz, maybe? I dunno, only AW builds use it (and not on helm) but I guess it could be a thing we'd want in the future?
Well if APOC ever becomes viable with a future set, they'd probably be smart enough to include a wizard hat with it.

Btw Inna's is the only monk set spirit stone, both Sunwuko and Storms are regular helms.
It's annoying to miss out on 4 APoC just because of a set design decision. But I don't see them changing that, and I'd be unsurprised if the trend continues with Vyr.

I guess the DMO hat doesn't look like a wizard hat so they didn't want to classify it that way. Honestly, a simple solution would be to scrap that concept of wizard hat and non-wizard hat, but they won't do that either. All classes have their unique slots.

And it's not that simple. If APoC rolled natively on it, the best rolls would probably be int / crit / orb% / apoc. And as all set helms roll with native socket, it would be a different kind of annoying. Not that helms aren't hard to roll well but you see my point.

It used to have the potential to look a lot more racist on the PTR.

Doc has mask

And nobody uses the set masks because all sets need another legendary one. Btw, Jade has a helmet.
In my opinion the stupid design decision was to have a hat in the set at all.

Wizard, Witch Doctor, and Monk should not have hats in their sets. Barbarians should not have belts in their sets. Demon Hunters should not have chests in their sets. Crusaders should not have shields in their sets (oh, I guess they got that one right).

Blizzard claims it is to make people consider tradeoffs, but the real function is to simply make most class items useless. Witch doctor is the one exception, where WD hats are so powerful you have to use them, which screws them over badly on rings, and is the main reason they're not competitive as a damage dealer at the moment.

Making class items useless isn't good design.

So does helltooth.

So set class specific items are IK belt/BB, Inna's radiance/daibo, Nat's cloak/slayer, Zuni mask/mojo, tal orb, and now UE which is an outlier since the whole set revolves around disc. See the pattern? Tal helm is the only one missing.
TBH I would kill for my Tal Helm or even my Delsere Helm to have +14 max arc power as a secondary.

Been a lot more useful in speeds/T6 than it has ever been in the past.
