In earlier versions of Diablo II, Arkaine's Valor gave a much larger boost to life, making it a highly sought out and duped item. The life bonus was greatly reduced in subsequent patches.

- Arkaine's Valor is one of the few Diablo I unique items that were also found in Diablo II. Still, it was not available before Diablo II: Lord of Destruction.
- As seen above, it is a Ring Mail in Diablo I but an elite Splint Mail in Diablo II. It is assumed that it was retconned because of its Diablo I image shows an armor similar to Japanese o-yoroi, a type unrepresented in the artworks available to Diablo II unique items.
