I wouldn't say that this helm is rare. I have camped other items I would actually consider rare that have a rarity status of "common" . . . common is what I would apply to this helm.
not rare

as of today, this helm now has a graphic in luclin! at first i thought i had a bug as i once in a while get, so i unequiped reequiped/zoned and such. tried this on two chars on diff servers. same graphic! woohoo! iksars get so jacked on helm graphics. now i dont have to put on a giant warrior helm to have a cool screenshot helm. pink plate on my BL. i love it

ps once saw bug with kylong helm: same helm but dark red. will test this later hope it works. must have helm graphic!!

I sell these to the vendor for about 75pp. Was in KC for 2 days for guild VS hunt, and we all looted one in time, and shouted many times about more sitting on the ground. MAYBE once someone got one.

400pp? hehe. Get invis (careful of skels), and run up and sit with the hands group if they don't need em. I bet we let 10 of em rot.

I have one of these for my 15 barb warrior as well as a skull shaped barbute (ac13, 35hp, 10svm). Which one should I use? Should I go for the AC and HP at my level or the big str and agi bonus?

Go with SSB for ac AND stats. 35hp is more important at lvl 15 then the str and agility for a barb, and SSB has more than twice the ac. My troll sk used his SSB until low 40s when I got my BE helm.

Last night the Construct of Sathir dropped this noggin protector for my group. Nobody needed it but we rolled on it anyways. I won, so if anyone on Terris Thule needs it.... Send me a tell.

There I was in Karnor's... doing hands... being lower-level than I should (but that's what clerics do)... anyway this sucka drops... I lose roll to other enchanter (or was it another cleric in the group?) but he already has one and it's lore... shazam major twinkage time!

I Wish I could see it

I bought one the other day, put it on my Iksar shadowknight and.....nothing. The guy i bought it from says its because I have Luclin expansion and it must be a bug because he sees it(He doesnt have expansion yet) Anyone else having this problem?

Not sure if this has been mentioned but some helms dont show using the new Luclin models...unless you switch on animations in your eqclient.ini file (or use the options when you first connect to the patch server).

Looted it in KC off the Construct of Sathir while in a Lcy group, gave it to my Troll Warrior and it looked like silver Banded.. Is there a helm bug? I have since upgraded to a Crustacean Shell Helm and that has no graphic.. =) ?
RE: I Wish I could see it
# Mar 06 2002 at 6:36 PM Rating: Decent
They must have fixed it I bought one today and it looks just like my ssb or fp.

I also have Luclin, and I bought one this morning for 150pp! When I put it on my Vah Shir warrior.. poof.. nothing.. :(
I do not think they have put in alot of the textures from Kunark and Velious. All Velious armor looks generic generic to me and I have them turned on in my .ini file.
RE: I Wish I could see it
# Jan 24 2002 at 11:15 AM Rating: Decent
I saw a post on the EQ Developers forum that they know about this bug. There's a conflict between the Velious Armors & the new luclin models. If you want to see the helm, turn off all the new luclin player models.
Correction to be made

It is no longer IKS only, I bought one yesterday and my Barb Rogue loves it....Its large races only
RE: Correction to be made
# Jan 10 2002 at 10:39 AM Rating: Excellent

How very sad. I liked this item being Iksar only. It made it sorta special.

Sent a correction, with a new image anyhow.

On the upside, maybe the one I have will becom slightly more valuable.

See ya in Norrath.

Correct me if I'm wrong... but didn't also used to have 6 AGI instead of the current 5 AGI?

For warrior anyway. you go to kurn towqer wait one hour or less and kill an odd mole it will drop a pendand that you can use to make the Trooper scale helm 12 ac and 1 less str i think. if you are a iksar warrior then find a med level friend and go kill a mole will cost ya less to.

I just bought one of these for my Shadow Knight for 300pp. This helm rocks in my opinion. So what if it looks a little goofy heh.
# May 28 2001 at 9:05 PM Rating: Default
what does this look like? on a necro itd be great for a platemail graphic cuz the only other way to get that for a caster is some like 5 k helm or 10k helm or somethin and this is like 500pp instead which could make for some sweet lookin iksar casters.
RE: -graphic?
# Oct 29 2001 at 7:05 AM Rating: Good

Is it really worth answering such a waaaaay old question???

The helm looks exactly like the Shestar scaled coif. (You see lotsa these on melee types, in FoB.) It is rather cool to see on a necro, simply because everyone is used to seeing the scaled coif. (And frankly, it's the best helm design I've seen for an Iksar. (I've seen the crown of the myrmidon and even that is a poor comparison,, graphically. (Which is not to say the stats aren't entirely drool-worthy.))

What is rather nice about this, is that since it is Iksar only, they go pretty cheaply. Not so good for the seller. Very good for the buyer. Hah!

Great stats but...looks really goofy. Its that "batwing" helmet look. Heres a really crude text drawing of it.

_*O* <-- This is the helm

Hope this gives you an idea of what it looks like.

Can be bought

You can buy the Helm of Rile in cabilis- from a tent vendor -for 9,885 pp.
RE: Can be bought
# May 17 2001 at 7:33 PM Rating: Default
I think that the only reason the vendor was elling this is because someone sold it to him and they do not usaly have this
# Apr 08 2001 at 8:29 PM Rating: Default
this is a great item for iksar, its nice and cheap cause it's iksar only, and it's pretty easy to find cause no one needs it =)
