Inside look: Season 20's new sets featuring Rhykker
CJ 'Rhykker' Miozzi didn’t think he was going to like Diablo III Seasons when they first came out.
“I thought, well, I have my main character and all this progress. Why would I want to do a fresh start?” he recalls.
Barbarian class set: Horde of the Ninety Savages
This new set relies on a primary Barbarian skill called Frenzy, a single-target attack that accelerates your attack speed each time it lands. With the full Horde of the Ninety Savages set bonus, Frenzy deals even more damage, and each strike is spread to all enemies in a 15-yard radius.
“For a long time, people have been asking for a Frenzy build,” says Rhykker.
Witch Doctor class set: Mundunugu's Regalia
The Mundunugu’s Regalia set reinvigorates a classic fan-favorite build based around the Witch Doctor skill Spirit Barrage: a mid-range projectile attack that bombards enemies with spectral bolts.
Wizard class set: The Typhon's Veil
The Typhon's Veil class set creates a completely new interaction with the Wizard's Hydra skill, which normally spawns a single elemental Hydra that independently attacks your enemies. With this set, Hydras are modified to grow additional heads and deal even more fearsome damage. The trade-off is that every time you take damage, one of your Hydra heads die off, reducing the damage reduction the set otherwise provides.
