Alma Negra is a unique Sacred Rondache, a shield from Diablo II: Lord of Destruction, exclusive only to the Paladin.

The shield was historically presented to Akkhan alongside the Piro Marella.[1]

Although Alma Negra does not bestow as much skill bonus as the Herald of Zakarum, it does have other bonuses that make up for it.

Alma Negra tends to be more of an offensive-heavy than defensive-heavy shield. Particularly notable is its bonuses to Attack Rating and Damage, both of which can be very high for a shield. When combined with Offensive Auras such as Conviction or Fanaticism, the Alma Negra can be a big help for Paladins inclined to be more physical fighters.

Defensively, however, Alma Negra is just a bit lacking. It does not give any bonuses to resistances, which could be harmful in Nightmare or Hell difficulties. Similarly, its Chance to Block is lower than other shields.

Alma Negra is still a useful shield, especially for Paladins such as Zealots. Some may choose to help remedy the resistance problem by socketing it and then inserting a Perfect Diamond or Um Rune.
