- This article is about the unique item from Diablo II: Lord of Destruction. For the unique item of the same name from Diablo I, see Harlequin Crest.
Harlequin Crest is a unique helm. Besides its bonuses to skills, life, mana and damage reduction, Harlequin Crest (often referred to in-game as simply "Shako") also bestows a very high boost to magic find, which many players further boost by socketing the helmet with an Ist Rune or Perfect Topaz. When combined with Battle Orders, the life and mana provided by this helmet is simply incredible and cannot be matched by most items in the game.
Harlequin Crest is also fairly cheap to acquire via trade because none of the modifiers are randomized, thus making it a good all-around helmet for just about any spellcaster-type class.
