Arkaine's Valor is a unique Balrog Skin in Diablo II: Lord of Destruction.

With a high defense and a boost to all skills, Arkaine's Valor can also provide a nice bonus to life with its growing Vitality boost.

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.
