Griffon's Eye

From Diablo 2 Wiki

Griffon's Eye is an elite Unique Circlet with an item level of 84 and a Character Level requirement of 76. It is particularly popular among Sorceresses that specialize in Lightning Spells.

This Unique can only be found by Realm Ladder characters, or in single player.


The head is one of the most vulnerable and important parts of the body, so protective headgear of all sorts have long been a staple of a decent suit of armor. The simplest designs consist chiefly of a tight-fitting leather or metal cap, securely fastened to remain atop one's head. More advanced designs include faceted sides to deflect and absorb attacks, noseguards and gorgets to protect the nose and neck, and even visors that close over the face. A sturdy helm may be one of the best investments an adventurer can make.

Circlets are only found in the Expansion. They are headgear, but have a lot of differences from all other types of helms in the game. Circlets have no in-game graphic. When wearing one a character looks to be bare-headed, which is nice for a change, some characters look nice without a hat on, the Sorceress and Amazon with their long hair, for example.

  • In 1.10 of the Expansion the odds of gambling a Unique is 1 in 2000.
  • Elite Uniques are found only in the Diablo II Expansion, not in Diablo II Classic.


  • Item Level: Chests and monsters must be at least this level to drop the item. Ilvl is used in gambling, sales and other calculations as well.
  • Clvl Req: Your character must be this level or higher to equip the item. No Uniques had Clvl requirements prior to v1.07 D2.
