Cleglaw's Brace is a set in Diablo II. Like other sets, it is intended to give an edge to a character who manages to collect its components. In this case, to melee oriented characters.
The set does have some downsides. The shield is pretty unremarkable and the weapon, in spite of having an inherent 50% Deadly Strike modifier, still has the potential for low damage. Its Attack Rating Bonus tends to be pretty moot around Act 5 Normal difficulty. The knockback modifier on the gloves can be quite annoying if an opponent isn’t close to a wall.
On the other hand, the full set grants 35% chance of Crushing Blow, a useful modifier for boss fights. The 6% mana leech is helpful in keeping skill use more constant. The inherent 25% slowdown is helpful, and if an opponent is near a wall, the knockback modifier will make them unable to attack while the wearer deals damage with impunity.
