Diablo 3 Complete Set Dungeon Guide - Maxroll.gg (2024)

Introduction

Set Dungeons are unique areas with multiple objectives that must be completed in a certain amount of time to achieve "Basic" and "Mastery" levels of completion. Every class has 4 Set Dungeons based on their original 4 Class Sets that are fun to complete and difficult to master. Unfortunately the new Class Sets don't have Set Dungeons: Horde of the Ninety Savages, Aegis of Valor, Gears of Dreadlands, Patterns of Justice, Masquerade of the Burning Carnival, Mundunugu's Regalia and The Typhon's Veil . To find the entrance to each Set Dungeon you must put on a full Class Set and visit the Tome of Set Dungeons for a clue (or just read our guide :D). This is found in the Royal Quarters which is in Leoric's Manor up the staircase to the right.

After using your clue to reach the proper destination a green Portal will appear if you're wearing the full associated Class Set. Mastery of one dungeon is required to complete the Seasonal Journey, so plan on doing at least one each Season if you want to get that extra Stash Tab! Game difficulty doesn't impact Set Dungeons in any way and if you take fatal damage you fail and will have to try again (meaning you won't lose your character on Hardcore). Some of these builds are a bit low on Toughness, so putting it on Normal just for the walk to the Set Dungeon is recommended, especially on Hardcore. You can do these in groups, only the leader has to wear the set, and only they will get the completion. You can have teammates wait around as you get your objectives done, then give them the signal to help clean up the rest of the Set Dungeon while you eat some snacks!

Rewards

Completing Set Dungeons won't lead to Unique item drops or crafting possibilities, but there are Banner Sigil's, Pennant's and Wings to earn for your troubles. Completion of any Set Dungeon will reward you with a Banner Sigil for that Dungeon, 28 total that you can acquire. Completing all 4 Set Dungeons within a Class will also reward you with a Pennant and another even fancier Pennant is available when you Master all 4 on that Class. Basic and Mastery completion of 24 of the 28 Set Dungeons (Excluding Necromancer entirely) will also reward the player with arguably the coolest cosmetic wings in the game: The Wings of the Dedicated and The Wings of Mastery!

Core Setup

For 99% of Set Dungeons you want max Cooldown Reduction, Attack Speed and Resource Cost Reduction to cast your abilities faster and more frequently. None of them require amazing gear and can be completed with non-ancient Legendary Items, level 25 Legendary Gems, and zero Augments. Some can be easily failed if you have too much damage, Area Damage or even skills that kill things passively such as Mystic Ally or Gargantuan. Every Set Dungeon requires you to kill every enemy present so focus on completing the objectives early on while making sure not to leave enemies behind. The last thing you want is to have to backtrack through the whole dungeon at the end to kill a few enemies you left behind. Being patient will help you complete many of the objectives so just take a relaxed approach, gather up the enemies for the objectives and you'll sail through. There are also specific Legendary items that are used frequently that can be reused as you move to other classes shown below. In Season 25 we will avoid using Soul Shards in Set Dungeons as they are generally very powerful and can complicate some of the needed objectives.

Items

  • Captain Crimson's Trimmings provide Cooldown Reduction, Resource Cost Reduction, Damage and Toughness. The pieces are crafted at the Blacksmith and are used in nearly every Set Dungeon build.
  • The Ring of Royal Grandeur is the star of the show being used in all 28 builds. It enables you to wear one less piece of your required 6-piece Set, allowing you to bring Captain Crimson's Trimmings.
  • Leoric's Crown provides insane Cooldown Reduction with a Flawless Royal Diamond in the Socket. You or your follower should always be wearing this item during these! This can also be cubed instead of Illusory Boots if you don't need to move through monsters.
  • Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac, In-geom & Messerschmidt's Reaver all provide massive Cooldown Reduction. Wear and Cube as many of these as possible.
  • Illusory Boots allow you to move unhindered through enemies, making some of the objectives much easier to handle.
  • Gogok of Swiftness is the only Legendary Gem that gives Cooldown Reduction, so you'll take it on every build.
  • Adding Molten Wildebeest's Gizzard to any build will grant you a massive shield that makes survival trivial.

Barbarian

The Barbarian has some of the more difficult Set Dungeons, however with the right strategies they can be taken down in a few attempts. It's not the completion, but the Mastery that can take practice and test your patience. Luckily these aren't heavily gear dependent and you can get through them with underwhelming gear.

Crusader

The Crusader has some of the easiest and most enjoyable Set Dungeons in the game. None of these are very gear dependent and only require a few Unique Items to breeze through. Starting a Season as a Crusader also assures you an easy path through your Seasonal Journey which requires a Set Dungeon Mastery! These Set Dungeons do a great job highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of these Unique Sets and below we'll show you how to make the most of them!

Demon Hunter

The Demon Hunter has varying difficulties on their Set Dungeons. For many you'll find yourself using Vault to fly through the dungeon decimating everything in your path. The Shadow's Mantle Set Dungeon, however, will require you to be tactical and intentional with your play if you want to succeed. Being the only class with two different Resources (Hatred & Discipline) most of these test their management in order to get to Mastery. Let's dive in and get four dungeons closer to your wings!

Monk

The Set Dungeons for the Monk vary wildly in difficulty making them fun and challenging. They showcase the strengths of the Monk Class well and are a great way to familiarize yourself with skills and strategies to better dominate your enemies. Many of these Set Dungeons have a defensive objective that requires avoiding certain damage from enemies, highlighting the Monk's support-heavy playstyle. Below we'll show you how to be both an offensive and defensive powerhouse to dominate these Set Dungeons!

Necromancer

The Necromancer have the easiest Set Dungeons which makes it too bad they don't count towards the Wings of Mastery. Nonetheless if you're an achievement hunter or need one for your Seasonal Journey all of these are great options to get that accomplished. The Necromancer has some Unique Sets that showcase the class in different ways. Let's see how to be the commander of the undead below!

Witch Doctor

The Witch Doctor is great at grouping enemies with afflictions and blowing them away with their high-damage skills and creatures. It's a slow and steady Class compared to others as you're often in the Spirit Realm sneaking around for the right time to strike. Many of these Class Sets require a proper rotation of skills to work properly, but with the right strategy and supporting items you'll be victorious!

Wizard

The Wizard Set Dungeons are all unique from one another and are great ways to learn some of the strengths and weaknesses of each Set. Many of these will require you to rack up high kill counts while utilizing the unique Set Bonuses which range from maximizing your cooldowns to using Arcane, Cold, Fire and Lightning at the same time in. Come learn how to control the elements and Master these Set Dungeons while you're at it.

Summary

Good luck on this endeavor. Mastering all Set Dungeons and claiming the wings is a major accomplishment! Getting through them all is no small task but once done you'll have experienced all of the original Class Sets in the game. Maybe someday there will be a new round of Set Dungeons made for the new Class Sets that have entered Sanctuary, but until that day comes this will wrap up our Set Dungeon overview.
