Class Specific Items Worth Keeping in Diablo 2

 

This page will cover all of the Class Specific Items that are worth keeping. Keep in mind that for class specific items, any without + Skills on them are complete junk. One of the biggest benefits of items that are class specific is that they can roll with multiple bonuses to skills. Typically all of the class specific items can have a + 2 <Class> Skills as well as a + 1 - 3 of a specific skill. An example would be a Sorcerer's orb with + 2 to Sorcerer Skills and + 3 to Blizzard. A combination like this would be one of the largest weapon upgrades you could get.
