Andariel's Visage is a unique Demonhead in Diablo II.

Like its name implies, Andariel's Visage is imbued with the Poison attribute of Andariel herself. However, it is the only item in the game that carries a penalty to a resistance, specifically, Fire, which is consistent with Andariel's actual vulnerability to Fire.

Its reduction of Fire Resist could be problematic, especially in Nightmare or Hell difficulties, although this penalty could be easily countered by socketing it with a Ral Rune or Ruby Jewel of Fervor for both Increased Attack Speed and Fire Resist.

Andariel's Visage is arguably one of the best hireling helmets in the game, as it provides strength, skills, Life Stolen Per Hit, and Attack Speed - all of which are valuable to hirelings. It is often socketed with a 15% Increased Attack Speed jewel to allow the hireling to reach very high attack speed breakpoints (especially when combined with Treachery). Many players will also try to find jewels that provide a second bonus to Fire Resistance to compensate for this helmet's drawback, but with Treachery's Fade ability, the penalty does not matter much in practice.
