Skin of the Vipermagi is a unique Serpentskin Armor.

With the boost to Cast Rate and a large boost to resistances, Skin of the Vipermagi is ideal for casters. While other armors certainly provide more resists, mana and/or bonuses to skills, Skin of the Vipermagi provides the highest Faster Cast Rate bonus on any armor in the entire game, thus making it ideal for builds trying to reach the maximum Faster Cast Rate breakpoint possible, such as Lightning Sorceresses, Wind Druids, or Hammerdins.

It is common to upgrade it to a Wyrmhide, if the character meets the 84 Strength requirement. Also, this armor has an advantage against Rune Word body armors since it can be socketed by Larzuk, providing extra customizability. Strong choices include the Um Rune for more resists, Rainbow Facet Jewel for more damage, Ber Rune for physical damage reduction, Perfect Topaz for Magic Find or Perfect Ruby for more Life.
