Blackthorne's Battlegear (previously Blackthorne's Armor) is an item set in Diablo III.

This set is named for Baron Blackthorne, a commander who fought against King Leoric.

The set requires a character level of 60, and is fit for any class. Its drop rate is higher than that of other sets, so it is very likely to be the first set obtained by a character. Prior to patch 2.1, the set itself was focused on survival, being useful for starting the higher difficulties. As of 2.1, it has become more balanced.


The set consists of five pieces, all of which can be adapted for any class. The set can be completed with any four of them.

Set Bonuses:

  • +250 Vitality and increases damage against elites by 10% (2 pieces)
  • Reduces damage from elites by 10.0% and +25% Extra Gold from Monsters (3 pieces)
  • Character becomes immune to Desecrator, Molten, and Plagued monster affix ground effects (4 pieces)

The latter bonus protects players from both Molten lava streams and post-death Molten explosions.
