For the crown as it appears in other games, see Undead Crown (disambiguation).
The Undead Crown is a quest reward item which is dropped by the Skeleton King and provides Life Steal from the helm slot, something virtually no other non-weapons in the game can offer other than the Helm of Spirits. This Crown's special Life Stealing affix however, ranges from 0-12.5% and can be stacked with life leech weapons, something which Helm of Spirits isn't capable of. It's also the only Unique Armor and Helm displaying a special Armor Class within the lowest range of its base form, and with a slightly higher durability. The Skeleton King drops a random magical item when playing in Multiplayer.

Diablo IIIEdit


This helm returns in The Darkening of Tristram event as a magical helm. It's a nod to the quest Skeleton King from Diablo I.

In order to obtain this, you must defeat the Skeleton King.

This looks just like the crown of the Black King, but less tarnished and aged...
