Quest summary(src)

Arkaine's Valor is a piece of Armor which is found lying on the ground in the halls of a special room, somewhere on Level 5 in Diablo I, and can only be found in the Single Player mode of the game as the reward for completing the Arkaine's Valor Quest. It is extremely useful at that point, because it is virtually guaranteed to be a considerable upgrade over any armor found up to that point in the game. The usefulness of this armor declines though, as the player's character(s) moves deeper into the labyrinth, since the Armor Class is not very high, though it is not uncommon for low-Strength characters to wear it all the way through Normal Difficulty and beyond. Thanks to its Fastest Hit Recovery Affix, it is the ultimate tool for preventing stunlocks.

The armor can be sold for 10,500 gold.

Diablo IIIEdit


This armor can be obtained as a Magic Item from the quest of the same name in The Darkening of Tristram in Diablo III. It is a nod to the Quest Arkaine's Valor from Diablo I.

"Just before Arkaine died, his armor was hidden away in a secret vault. It is said that when this holy armor is again needed, a hero will arise to don Valor once more. Perhaps you are that hero..." — Deckard Cain
