Legacy of Nightmares (named Legacy of Wicked Dreams pre-Reaper of Souls) is a minor item set in Diablo III. Both pieces require a character level of 60 to drop.

In Season 17, all characters have this bonus for free, as long as they have no others (does not stack with the LoN itself).

In patch 2.6.6, a Legendary Gem with a similar bonus has been added: Legacy of Dreams.


Set Bonus (2 items):

  • While this is the only item Set Bonus the character has, their damage dealt is increased by 750% and damage taken is reduced by 4% for every Ancient Item they have equipped.


  • The effect stacks additively for each Ancient item (no matter if Set or Legendary), including the rings themselves. Primal Ancient items qualify as well for this bonus.
  • In the beginning of the maximum level game, this set may prove helpful (yet tough to fully utilize) for builds that do not rely on set bonuses of class sets. A simpler alternative would be the Legacy of Dreams which provides similar bonuses while not entirely relying on Ancient items.
  • With 13 Ancient items, this set can grant up to 9750% increased damage done and 52% reduced damage taken.
    • In comparison, a fully-upgraded Legacy of Dreams can grant up to 9750% increased damage done and 52% reduced damage taken.

Original set bonus of this set (pre-2.4) was significantly different:

The last bonus had a small (roughly 10%) chance to trigger, and a 15 seconds duration with no internal cooldown. There was no cap of how many Skeletons can be summoned at a time.

At early stages of 2.4 testing, the bonus for an Ancient item was as high as 800% damage.
