Loot Worth Keeping - Diablo 2

 

On this page you'll find a list of items that are argubly the best of the best items in the entire game. All credit for this list and the best of the best socketable items list <Add link> goes to u/youbetterdont from reddit. Here is a link to the original pastebin that he created with these lists. For the most part I have kept his list the same as he made it; the changes I made were mostly removing acronyms and abbreviations to make it easier for even non-Diablo 2 literate people to understand and changes to the formatting.

 

Key:
(Eth) = Ethereal
