For the Diablo II unique helm, see Veil of Steel (Diablo II).
The Veil of Steel is a Unique quest reward item in Diablo I given by Lachdanan after completing the quest Lachdanan. It cannot be obtained in multiplayer.

It is arguably one of the more useful Unique Helms for any character, especially for Warriors who can afford the mana penalty.

It increases both Strength and Vitality highly and is notable for being the only Helm and Armor holding a 50% All Resistance, along with both augmented base Armor Class as well as a bonus to the formerly mentioned, and the only Great Helm requiring no strength to be equipped.

"May those who wear this helm meet a better fate than my own, ever guided by loyalty and honor" — Lachdanan
