Verdungo's Hearty Cord

From Diablo 2 Wiki

Verdungo's Hearty Cord is an elite Unique Belt with an item level of 71 and a Character Level requirement of 63. It provides the largest boosts to Vitality and life of any belt.


While belts provide some additional Armor Class, and also potential magical modifiers, their greatest benefit are the additional slots they provide for quick access to drinking potions and scrolls. A character without a belt has one row of four slots; all belts provide additional rows, up to a maximum of four rows (16 slots).

  • 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.
