Item hunting is one of the mayor objectives in Diablo games, besides questing and leveling. The item system in Diablo IIIhas been simplified and streamlined, when compared to the predecessor. The loss in itemization depth and replay value is countered by allowing franchise newcomers to instantly see if an item is an upgrade or not.

Items come in three large categories: Armor, Weapon, and Other

There are 11 total armor slots:

  • Shoulders
  • Wrists
  • Hands
  • Legs
  • Feet
  • Rings (2 slots)
  • Amulets

Weapons

Weapons include anything held in the hand, even if they player doesn't hit monsters with it.

One-Handed Two-Handed
Axes Axes
Maces Maces
Swords Swords
Spears Polearms
Daggers Staves
Shields Bows
Crossbows

Class Restrictions

All classes can use all types of armor, although most classes have a special type for one of the slots. Weapons are restricted by class and each class has at least one special weapon type.

Restrictions Special Items
Barbarian Staves, Bows and Crossbows Might Belts(Belts) and Weapons (1&2H)
Crusader Crusader Shields(OH) and Flails (1&2H)
Monk Spirit Stones(Head), Fists(1H) and Daibos(2H)

Follower Gear

Each of the followers can equip a weapon, 2 rings, an amulet and a special item particular to each follow

  • The Templar can equip one-handed swords, axes, spears and daggers, along with a shield and a Templar Relic
  • The Scoundrel can equip either bow or crossbow and a Scoundrel Token
  • The Enchantress can equip staves, swords, axes, and maces along with a Enchantress Focus

Item Quality and Color

Every item has a quality level associated with it and each quality level has a color associated with it

  • Junk - grey
  • Normal - white
  • Magic - blue
  • Rare - yellow
  • Legendary - orange
  • Set - green

Ironically, the most common quality level of item drops is Rare.

Grey, Normal, Magic, and Rare items are useless in Diablo III after reaching level 70. This is a massive ideology departure from Diablo II Lord of Destruction.

Set items have their own color but are considered legendary in terms of drop rate.

Gems

Weapons, Jewelry as well as Head, Torso, and Leg Armor can have sockets for Gems. These Gems provide additional effects, depending on where they are socketed.

There are five types of Gems in a range of qualities: Ruby, Topaz, Emerald, Amethyst and Diamond.

In Addition, Patch 2.1 introduced Legendary Gems that mostly socket into Jewelry and provide various effects.
