What Items or Sets would you like to see Buffed?

General Discussion
When the next patch and season arrives, we all would like to see new content or fixes or balancing. But what about old set items, or Legendaries? Would you like to see blackthorne's set buffed? or The Horadric Hamburger get a special stat?

What sets or Legendaries would you like to see get a buff? Leave your comments below!
finish giving all legendary gear a special affix would be absolutely amazing to see done after how long?

many sets that are not equally balanced for the highest grifts
-it's clear that only the most complex builds/sets get to the top
Buff for LoN rings specific for equipping Primals. A small amount of extra damage mitigation or boost at least needed for wearing Primals with LoN. Blackthorne pieces either need a rehaul of whole bonuses (thorns barbarian?) else 1-2k stat boost at last bonus tier or legendary abilities each like Krelm's.

I also would like to new abilities to the Lidless Wall, Tyrael's Might and Mempo of Twilight.
Lidless Wall may fast forward charge cooldowns on block for saving us waiting several seconds. Tyrael's Might offers resource cost reduction (for something other than fire based builds), a specific class skill bonus and longer Nephalem Glory duration as a legendary power. Mempo of Twilight may be redeemed with extra elite damage, and perhaps 75% less damage taken when cursed or under a control impairment effect as legendary power.
As for a small tweak, I'd like to see -5% less critical hit chance on Band of Hollow Whispers so it pairs up well with Broken Promises.
I'd love them to finally remove Rend from the Wastes set and add something useful instead, or make Rend actually scalable, because right now the 2-piece is useless and the 4-piece is only useful for the mitigation.
I'd appreciate it if they'd just give the vyr set a cooldown reduction effect.
I'd like to see every set have the massive damage increase and reduction removed, keep utility bonuses as (2) (3) or (4) piece bonuses or maybe in some cases moved to a legendary item.

Make a legendary for the nercosis proc with reduction to damage bonus/

Make more legendary items in the slots that currently are occupied by six piece sets. These slots ahve suffered neglect for far too long.
I want to see the Diablo franchise buffed...
They all need some serious nerfing.
I'd like removing all sets and focus on balancing legendary items. That would be first step in cleaning current mess in game. Tons of interesting builds would appear and my char would start to feel unique. Also would be a lot easier to balance as currently it's almost impossible as sets and legendaries interact with each other
If you can't do "The Thrill" with a legendary ...it needs a buff.

Pretty simple.

You see items with up to 800% extra damage, or some sort of effect that essentially does the same thing; that always feels amazing when you equip it.

And you still see an overwhelming majority of legendaries that are essentially worthless, and/or you would only wear them because there's nothing else for you to put in that slot ( like necro offhands ).

Blizzard said at the start of Reaper of Souls that they would be giving every legendary a unique affix ..and they failed miserably. It's bad enough that the legendaries they have worked on still have disproportionate damage numbers; like 60% increased damage from years ago and haven't been updated.

There's also a ton of legendaries that still have their damage as a prefix ..instead of being baked into the legendary affix. The amount of times I wish barb's EQ weapon could be used in the cube is numerous. Or being able to actually play zombie charger on a WD with their sad and broken 1hander.

Blizzard deflected criticism last year on the PTR saying they couldn't get to all of the needed items this time around because of time constraints, but they would get to them on the next patch. A year later ...still no patch.

It ain't hard to have 1 intern edit some text files to bump up damage a bit or to move damage from a prefix to a legendary affix. It's not like we would be asking for a metric ton of money and manpower to patch in the rest of the fixes that this game deserves.
The Wastes Set, Rend should of been fixed to do decent damage ages ago!

The Wastes Set, Rend should of been fixed to do decent damage ages ago!

Pretty much most of the 2 piece bonuses are nonsense.

They're either extraordinarily amazing / broken compared to not having a set going at all ...or they're entirely worthless once you get the 4 / 6 piece of the set going.

Shadow 2 piece? Amazing. But once you get the 6 piece its completely worthless.

Wastes 2 piece? Amazing, But once you even get any barb legendary it's worthless.

Akkhan 2 piece? Pretty much worthless all the way through. Can't even properly use it until you have the 6 piece and all of your gear set up to a bare minimum.

Firebirds 2 piece? A complete joke, even for hardcore.

Rathma 2 piece? Has anyone even gotten it to work?

It's one thing for the 2 and 4 piece to be stopgaps to help the player as they gather and complete the remaining pieces of their set ...but it's another when they're either completely junk ..or become completely junk by completing the set.

They should always be useful, and they should always be integral to the set theme. Just like the 4 and 6 bonuses.

I want legendary gems that deal damage to scale with the highest damage multiplier applicable to any equipped skill -- not just the generic multipliers that only a few sets even have, rendering the only scaling component for these gems completely moot for everyone else.

I could agree with that but any other skill I have tried to replace Rend feels clunky in some way. With Rend on the bar it seems to go with the smooth flow of the build better and not interfere with the fluid motion of the WW build at all. :)
