Pauldrons of the Skeleton King are Legendary pauldrons in Diablo III. They require character level 12 to drop, and can only be found within a Horadric Cache from Act I or Act IV.

The pauldrons can be valuable for players in Hardcore mode for giving them an extra chance to save their hero from dying. The 'chance' is approximately 15%, but it has no cooldown.
