Soul Drainer

From Diablo 2 Wiki

Soul Drainer is a pair of elite Unique Gloves with an item level of 82 and a Character Level requirement of 74. It's life leech and mana leech are very helpful to physical fighters.


Gloves are worn over the hands, and come in several types, from leather to plate. In real life battles a good pair of gloves or gauntlets were essential in combat to prevent fingers or hands from being chopped off by errant blows. Also, a solid plate glove allowed a devastating punch to be delivered to any unarmored area of an opponent. The gloves in Diablo II are not as necessary, but they can provide nice bonuses, including faster attack.

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


  • 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.
