I can't beat Diablo in nightmare because his fire nova skill kills me in one shot, where can I farm the gear you put in the gear description?

It's pretty brutal after it was tweaked but try to have as much fire resistance as possible, capped would be best. After that, your second best option is most likely more hp. In regards to the original post, you are somewhat out of luck regarding the set pieces, since they can be kinda hard to get, if you're only looking for 1-2 specific pieces. You should use the cube and craft yourself the tier 4 unique items listed. The runeword gloves that he listed would help a lot on Diablo since they have max fire resistance. Some builds will just have to accept that they will die on Diablo in nightmare and hell, since the fire nova is pretty brutal for low hp builds, no way around that. Keep a portal up and corpse run him.

Edit: If you're playing on realm, you could try and see if someone has the set pieces laying around. They aren't worth anything really, so it might be possible to find someone who doesn't care about them. Getting the rings and amulet can be very hard cause you can't craft those specifically, you basically reroll between 15 different rings and 10 amulets, or so.

Use perfect bloodstones to help raise your max fire res. Since you are summoner you can actually cheese the fight a bit.... Get Diablo stuck on one of the corners and stand on the other side of it. Summon your guys infront of you and they'll run towards him, keeping Diablo around the corner and you out of sight.

Bonus damage comes.from spirit of the nephalem skill, it won't be shown on the skill tooltip. What you CAN see there is the minion damage/life/AR bonuses

1 thing is the strength increases Nephalem damage, but also the Shamanic trance buff increases their physical damage by tons. When you increase your base strength, just recast the spell and your tooltip should update with higher numbers.
