Dark Mage's Shade is a Legendary Wizard Hat for the Wizard in Diablo III. It requires character level 29 to drop.

It has a unique feature of automatically casting Diamond Skin whenever the Wizard is seriously wounded. This Diamond Skin has its own cooldown, separate from one of the Wizard's spell, if they have it. It benefits from runes of the original spell, if any.

The scrolls in the Yshari Sanctum speak with somber tones of the dark mage Garesh. Could the runes on this hat really mark it as his?
