Diablo II: Resurrected

Verdungo's Hearty Cord

Nathan Garvin

Essentially a higher-tier String of Ears, Verdungo’s Hearty Cord retains useful modifiers like Damage Reduction while shedding Life Leech for Hit Recovery and Vitality. The loss of Life Leech hurts, but Verdungo’s Hearty Cord isn’t a bad option for characters who don’t rely on Life Leech - like a [Smiter] wearing Dracul’s Grasp.

With an iLv of 71 and an elite base item, you probably won’t see this drop until later in Nightmare difficulty, if not Hell difficulty. This item probably isn’t worth farming on its own, but won’t be an unwelcome drop from Hell Andariel or Mephisto.

Basically a scaled up String of Ears, Verdungo’s Hearty Cord will help keep its wearer alive.
