Item slots removed in Diablo 4

Shoulders slot removed

The Shoulders slot won't be returning in Diablo 4. Instead, it'll be merged into the Chest slot. Blizzard made this decision mainly for aesthetic reasons, so they could craft more impressive looking Chest armor pieces (i.e., a separate Shoulders slot would break the cohesiveness of the look).

"We wanted to make sure we had visual variety of some Armor pieces having really awesome Shoulder pieces, some Armor having no Shoulder pieces. Say, with a Barbarian, if an end-game look was pauldrons, that'd be pretty cool."

Belt slot removed

Blizzard has also merged the Belt armor slot into the Legs slot. This too is thought to be for aesthetic reasons. In past Diablo games, some Belts looked odd paired with certain Legs and/or Chest pieces.
