The following are the four worst item sets available in D2X: from Maxwell Dick's blog

Because life is structured in this way, the worst always comes first.

Given how frequently most players (including myself) express dissatisfaction with the item sets, it's difficult to find too many that are truly terrible when you take a closer look at them. Once you start comparing them to the best uniques, they start to look shabby, and even then, the comparison isn't entirely accurate. According to my understanding, the problem is that the majority of them require a significant full set bonus, particularly in one or two areas where a random batch of high-quality uniques would prove insufficient. Players would have a strong incentive to track down the entire set, and donning it all would be worthwhile in comparison to the bonuses they are currently awarded. A set that contains the best uniques in every slot should still be beatable, and while the individual set items may not be as good as individual unique items, the entire set should make you shine brighter than the midday sun. Purchasing Diablo 2 resurrected Runewords for sale is highly recommended if you want to maximize your damage output to the greatest extent possible.

Aside from that, set items are significantly more common than unique items. After all, no one ever claimed that life was fair, did they?

Cleglaw's Brace (number 4) is a type of brace.

Because it is essentially worthless for the level and character to which it is intended, this is an interesting case study. However, it includes knockback gloves that make it impossible to use the crushing blow and fast attack because they force the player to chase after their targets. It also has a good AR, but Diablo 2 Resurrected Items lacks crushing blow and fast attack.

Despite the fact that it may seem strange, it is the knockback (as well as the ability to slow the target) that makes this weapon so popular. However, this is only true for the gloves, which have both abilities and are the PvPer's best friend. Therefore, when you're weak, dueling isn't particularly entertaining, even if your opponent is able to move around the battlefield.

Immortal King is the third and final choice.

I have a hard time deciding whether this set belongs on the good or bad list for this category. However, once you have a good amount of MF going in hell (especially when doing Meph runs), it is ridiculous how frequently you will receive an item or two from this set. It's very similar to the Exceptional Sigon's Set in appearance.

Finally, the weapon isn't the weakest link in the chain, and for players who recognize the somewhat hidden benefit of dealing damage to Demons and the undead, this is an excellent item to have in their collection. However, this set follows the standard D2X set pattern in that it contains one item that is virtually impossible to obtain (the armor), making putting the set together nearly impossible. Along with the fact that this character has by far the worst partial set bonuses of any character in D2X, this is a bad combination.

Meph appears to purchase IK Mauls in six-packs from Price Club, earning it an additional point for possessing the one elite set item that virtually everyone has been able to track down.

Civerb's Vestments are the second most popular item on the list.

What exactly are the Civerbs Vestments, and how do they work? Stocks, bonds, and a small amount of real estate are just a few of the investments he has made. Oh, that's right, those are his holdings. This (unfunny) joke has been presented to you by your local estate planner, and it is intended for you.

A bonus point is awarded for being the only set to have varying hidden item bonuses, as the bonus is determined by which of the other two items you have on your person, rather than giving the same bonus for any other item in the set, as is the case with most other sets. Now that I think about it, that's not even worth a bonus point, because the bonuses that are awarded are still a joke, as is the game itself. I don't recall saying anything about it at the time.

Cathan's Traps are ranked first on the list of best traps.

The fact that 5 items are tied together is not inherently wrong, but it is an absurdly large number to tie up, as if any character of the level to use this could possibly find them all without the use of twinkling. When it comes to a low-mid level sorc, mana, mana regen, and +skills are the most important resources. It only has one thing, and it isn't even a very large amount of that one thing.

The staff was almost useful at one point, prior to the introduction of orbs in Dungeons and Dragons Online, because +1 seemed like a reasonable bonus for your entire weapon/shield slot. To be completely honest, we were a bunch of idiots back then.
