Skin of the Vipermagi is an exceptional Unique Body Armor with an item level of 37 and a Character Level requirement of 29.


At times not even the most skillful of warriors can evade a weapon blow, and only his or her armor stands between blade and flesh. A piece of armor is simply any article of clothing worn upon the person that is designed to protect and defend against attack. They range from the simplest linen rags and hardened leather tunics to heavy plate armor, which only the strongest fighters can wear.

Finding the right armor is very important. If the player lucks into one of these Unique armors, he or she will likely wear it for quite some time, since the array of modifiers is wider than are likely to be found with any mere magical armor. Only the need for a much higher Defense Rating usually pushes players to upgrade their armor.

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