Set Items on Followers
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.
I am curious on what they have planned for making Set items more appealing to use on Followers. The majority of my playtime is solo with a Follower, so any addition to followers is welcomed.
