It is a Necromancer only item, that has strong defensive bonuses.
Besides it’s +2 to Curses Skills, it grants you Necromancer a high Chance of Blocking, faster Block Rate and boosts Mana and its regeneration. Many say it isn’t that useful, because although it’s boosting Curses by 2, Necromancers can only level Curses once. So many players rather use other Hierophant Trophies.
The Homunculus is a decent item. It has nice defensive abilities, that will definitely help your character to survive longer.
The Heirophant Trophy is the exceptional version of this Voodoo Heads. It can be upgraded to the elite version by putting it into the Horadric Cube. After hitting the transmute button it will be called Bloodlord Skull. The most basic (normal) version is called Demon Head.

The Homunculus can be found at various locations. All the locations and bosses are minimum on nightmare difficulty. Every boss in the game can drop the Homunculus on hell difficulty, especiall Andariel, Baal and Mephisto. For Areas you’ll have to check Act 3-5 on nightmare difficulty. These bosses and areas have the highest probability. If you have problems with farming the bosses on hell, rather farm the areas on nightmare.
