So, your demon-slaying Diablo character might be running around in the best magical armor available, but armor in itself isn't enough to successfully protect against Diablo's minions. A helmet and shield are important compliments to any set of armor and helps provides greater protection for your character.In Diablo, there are 9 rare and unique helmets and six rare and unique shields. Three of the helms are Quest-only items, while the remainder plus all the shields can be found randomly throughout the game.
