You need to stop and ask yourself which ones would be worth the cost upgrade as opposed to which ones you would just think are a neat idea but not really do enough for the cost, so in this Diablo 2 Resurrected 2.4 guide, we're going to take a look at probably the top 5 set items that would spend the resources to upgrade. A lot of people are really excited about the ability to upgrade set items in the 2.4 Patch for Diablo 2.
Normal to exceptional weapons can be purchased for a reasonable price of a rare soul and a perfect emerald, whereas exceptional to elite weapons require a lump pull and another perfect emerald, both of which may require some consideration on your part. When it comes to armor, you can upgrade from normal to exceptional armor by using towel shale and a perfect diamond, and you can upgrade from exceptional armor to elite armor by using co lamb and a perfect diamond. When it comes to the exceptional to elite options, there are definitely rune words you would prefer making with these runes before spending them to upgrade the set item, but it can be of some value regardless. These are not overly expensive in either case, but there are definitely rune words you would prefer making with these runes. This does not imply that the other sets do not have value for upgrading, because if you're doing solo sell found, this list can be expanded a great deal. However, this does not mean that the other sets do not have value for upgrading.
The Death's Guard Demonhide Sash comes in at number five.
When it comes to this particular one, we recommend that you upgrade it only to the exceptional level and not the elite level
This is due to the fact that it is an excellent source of the property that it cannot be frozen and that, when combined with the gloves, it can also grant you 15 resistance to everything, in addition to the gloves' ability to grant you 30 increased attack speed for two items
You could also improve the gloves, but doing so would be mostly pointless because doing so would not significantly improve your defense
Sigon's Sabot, Myrmidon Greaves, and Greaves Round Out the Top 4
We wouldn't bother upgrading the majority of it if we could help it. Sigon's boots are able to be upgraded, which is one feature that stands out for being a budget option on a kickstand that is currently in progress. At the very least, this is the case through normal difficulties and nightmare. Be wary of the strength requirements, despite the fact that you can upgrade the other components to improve their defensive capabilities and other features. Sigon's greaves can be used in exceptional and elite levels to keep your kick damage at least at a semi-reasonable level, and the set as a whole does give decent mods. Ideally, we'd find better rares to upgrade into Hell difficulty, but in the meantime, they can be used to keep your kick damage at a semi-reasonable level in exceptional and elite levels.
Aldur's Rhythm and Devil Star Round Out the Top 3
The upgrade to Aldur's set, and in particular the weapon, that will be provided by Aldur's Rhythm is likely the one for which we are most excited. It makes the mediocre weapon at least semi-competent as far as options go until you are able to get something like grief or an endgame weapon. This is especially true if you get a three-socket version to use to your advantage, as with three sockets, you can do everything from reaching higher attack speed breakpoints to significantly reducing enemy defense with emeralds, or even just going leech or more elemental damage with some of the runes that are fairly common. This is especially true. Even though it might not seem like much at first, a small increase in base damage can be multiplied quite a bit if the appropriate components are used in the build.
Natalya's Soul Boneweave Boots are ranked in the top two.
People might not realize this, but upgrading actually has an effect on the viability of Natalya's set as well. This opens it up for kickers by allowing you to upgrade the boots to elite, and while it does not increase the myrmidon grieve potency, upgrading to bone weaves does not deal terribly much damage for their strength requirement. One sleeper that people might not realize is that upgrading actually impacts the viability of Natalya's set as well. Even though you are sacrificing some damage, you are doing so in exchange for the set bonuses provided by Natalya's set, which are quite beneficial in comparison to other sets.
Whiststan's Guard Luna came in first place.
Whiststan's Guard is another intriguing option because it has an even higher base block rate, but it is not displayed here because the maximum number of cards that can be shown is 75. It's more than 100 for paladins, and it's something you might want to think about incorporating into a few of your D2R 2.4 transition builds. It's definitely a decent improvement on the back end. It is debatable whether it is worth a coin and a lemming at the point where you would be using it; however, we can definitely see a few points where you might want to invest less in dexterity for the same effect and on a lightweight shield to boot in order to save your stamina. These are the points we can see.
