Along with the schedule, Bashiok further commented on the actual gear presented. First, that this gear set is around mid-range. So for anyone worried about this being the Witch Doctor's top-end gear, worry not. However, for those hoping this was the first level, sorry. Another comment he made was how the dye system would effect this particular armor. As it has already been stated, only certain pieces of the armor can be dyed. Bashiok said that the redish-orange pieces of the armor would be the pieces effected by dyes. Non-armor related, he also revealed that the Witch Doctor is able to wield all two-handed weapons. Lastly, he also stated that this "set" of gear is not an actual set. Meaning that it is not a set with a particular name and stats attached to it. It it more like the leather, gothic, full plate, type of set. Which is also good news for those worrying about its style and epic-ness.
