Off Hand items in Diablo 3 are equipped in the right side weapon slot. Monks, Barbarians, and Demon Hunters can dual-wield some types of weapons, while other classes can only use shields or special class-restricted off-hand items.

There are a variety of legendary and some set items in the off-hand slot, including all the class-restricted options.

Dual wielding weapons grants an automatic bonus to attack speed, plus the full stats of both weapons, making it a tempting option for the classes that can dual wield. Dual wielding is much more popular than using a two-handed weapon, and is the choice made by most Monks and Barbarians in Reaper of Souls.
