Unique Druid Items Notes

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.

Class-specific items are much like other items. They have a variety of stats and types, can be found magical, Rare, Unique, and sometimes in Sets as well. The real difference is that these items can only be used by one character class, and they can have random bonuses to individual skills, much like the ones you see on wands/staves/scepters in Diablo II. This is in contrast with magic items possessing class-specific Skill Level and Druid Skill Tree prefixes, which may be used by classes other than the Druid without benefiting from the skill modifiers.

Druids have special Animal Pelts for their class-specific gear. These have bonuses to individual Druid skills as inherent properties, and can also get magical bonuses to Druid skill trees or even all skills. Since Druids are very into +skills from their equipment, a good class-specific helm is probably the best possible item for your character.

  • Animal Pelts cannot be gambled, they must be found.
  • 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: A character must be this level to equip the item. No uniques in Diablo 2 had character level requirements before v1.07.

Notes

* Much like the Barb Class helm Arreat’s Face, Jalal’s has massive bonuses and is quite popular with any Druid. The lack of mana or life leech is somewhat annoying, but the +5 mana per kill makes it more great for an Elemental Druid as well (not that there are any). As with the Barb helm, only the lack of Magic Find and/or Physical Damage Reduction makes this less than a perfect item. It’s relatively hard to find, higher level than most other class specific items.
