Dropped in Ssraeshza Temple

I was on a raid for the High Priest in Ssraeshza Temple. They cleared the first room where all the golems and Chapel Guards are, and then the room with the high priest by pulling all of them to the room with the captured thought leech. I was rapidly sorting through the bodies, and found this on a corpse. My recollection was the helm came from a corpse, and not from something someone dropped on the ground. I am certain of it because after I looted it, I checked what the Cobalt Helm was by cliking on the link in the box which said I looted it. I thought it might be a little out of place, so I checked here. I had a power failure, and when I came back I promptly died to all the pops. Curiously the Cobalt Helm was on my cursor as I zoned in (I am almost certain I put it in my inventory before the power failure), and the Cobalt Helm was still on my cursor when I zoned into the guild lobby. I suspect there must be a bug here. Too bad it wasn't something really useful, like a piece of Solaris gear. Which mob did it come from? I have no clue, but there was the usual collection of snakes, live, undead, and golems. All of them were the trash mobs. The HP had not yet been engaged when I looted it.

Dropped again today from Advisor Zekuzh while getting ready for a raid for the Emperor Ssraeshza. So this is the second time it dropped on the third floor.

the weight
# May 25 2003 at 5:22 PM Rating: Default
It's stupid if a warrior has to worry about weight. My warrior has a current 180 str and i need to work on it. Well maybe it's cuz i have 2 rallic paks and a bag of tinkerers, but still warriors shouldn't have problems with weight and another thing have you ever heard of a BANK!?

Bottom line, this helmet has 25AC. You tell me of any other helmet that is easier to get with as much or more AC than that. Quit ******** about the effect and who needs it more. ***** human and Barb warriors, im a Dark Elf warrior with ultra vision and wear this helmet because it has 25AC!!!

Helm of Raldlakan (or however you spell it) that drops off the Raldalkan mobs in Umbral Planes is better than the Cobalt helm. Though it does not have an effect.

Hehe you asked :P

RE: Cobalt Helmet

Just beacause something has no other stat adds does not make any less worth having. 25 raw AC is very nice upgrade for a warrior as they are moving through the levels especially if they do not have the moeny to buy such items and happen to loot it or have it handed to them from a helpful PC. A Warriors Main concerns are AC and HP ( Straight AC or STA ), then STR, after that it can be argued all day long.

If anyone reads this who has this item, and has used the effect, I have afew questions.

A) Is the effect triggered (right-click) or permanent?

B) Can it be cast on others as well?

C) Out of curiosity, cast time?

Thanks =)

It is permanent and non castable. You wear it you have the effect.

helps you see at night, very helpful for human / bard, useless to most other. but ac is nice
# Jun 01 2002 at 2:04 AM Rating: Decent
what id the point in saying useful for a bard =P it is warrior only
# Jul 11 2002 at 11:44 AM Rating: Decent
He probably meant Barb.
#REDACTED, Posted: Jan 19 2002 at 9:28 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Ok, would somebody plz tell me WTF the effect does? Isn't that like a light source or soemthing??? The AC is nice but WTF does this go for freaking 30k???????????
RE: ummm
# Aug 19 2002 at 9:54 AM Rating: Decent
serpent sight is infravision, nice for human races
there is also a ring though, i picked up in the bazaar that has 2 ac and this effect, nice for my barb warrior until i can afford better
RE: ummm
# Mar 26 2002 at 3:21 PM Rating: Decent

what a shame
# Dec 04 2001 at 8:12 AM Rating: Default
Wow ..What a shame that only 2 people here had anything good to say about this item...And yes just like the others Im opening my trap for nothing less than to sound dumb..Great helm ..
Think about it!
# Nov 16 2001 at 12:31 PM Rating: Decent
I think you are all missing the point of this helm. This is pretty much only usefull for 2 races... Human and Barbarian... 2 races that are strong enough to not notice the weight and 2 races that have terrible vision.
I personally use 3 helms, 1: Indocolite Helmet(PoH) great for leveling skills 2: Cobalt Helmet(sebilis) great for traveling and dungeons 3: Custom Champions Crown(Thurg Quest) great for when you need those extra stats.

No i do not carry all 3 around... if my skills are maxed out i leave the indo helm in the bank... if im hangin with a shammy then the cobby helm gets put on the shelf too.

Think about it

Heh! This helm is 25ac! That makes it awesome for ANY warrior, it's not "pretty much useful for only humans and barbarians", though of course they would benefit from the effect. And the weight thing; any warrior high enough to acquire one of these babies will doubtlessly have at least 170str, usually a good bit more; plenty of str for MANY 10 weight items. But oh well, I came hoping for a low PC on it hehe.. sucks for me, 15k.
Barb and Human Only?!?
# Nov 26 2001 at 11:48 AM Rating: Default
I agree barbs and humans probably do need it the most, considering their nightly vision (as well as depth). But one thing I found silly is that you said humans are like hella strong... /disagree Str-wise, the big races prevail base, but I'm little ole half-elf pushing over 200 str. (200 being base, and always have spells either druid/shammy or just my cobalt boots) I dunno why I'm replying, I guess I just wanted to poke fun at that humans being strong thing, and I do agree with your idea of having several helms... But I wouldn't mind a few extra with Cobalt, condering i still have a ssb. Plus, Half Elves have the best looking armor LOL

This is a good helm for any race Warrior . The Ac is awesome and not many have better. The weight is nothing to a warrior . Even my Wood elf.

#REDACTED, Posted: Jan 04 2002 at 5:29 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! You think Half elves have the coolest looking armor? I sure hope you were being sarcastic because if you believe that Half Elf armor is the best looking you're either retarded, or sick in the head from something else. HAH! thanks for the laugh
#REDACTED, Posted: Jan 19 2002 at 9:29 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I think you should DIE because Half elfs do have the best looking and coolest armor. so just go die plz, kthx~

jesus f*ckin christ, all you **** heads ******* about the weight of something should join the f*ckin monk guild (no offense to monks here) but if you dont feel like carrying 100+ pounds of kick *** equipment go wear some damn cloth... jesus you guys are retarded makin a wood elf warrior in the first place
silly people
# May 31 2001 at 6:56 PM Rating: Default
if u are complaining about wieght and dont get ic because of that u are dumb, 25ac is sweet. thick banded belt is 15str if u dont have and fbss good option, and there tons of stuff wars get to enhance str. if u were a monk or caster that dont have many str enhancing items good arguemtn, but this is for a war that is sapposed to have str boosting stuff anyway, weghts no probs for war

Only Froglok Reets drop Cobalt helmet. Juggernauts drop Blood Ember helmet.

# Apr 20 2001 at 10:26 AM Rating: Decent
I understand about the weight concern (being a halfling warrior myself), but let's not forget that both the cobalt boots and cobalt gloves have strength-enhancing effects, which means that you should still be able to walk/run unecumbered even with a bunch of stuff in your inventory, assuming you've done your hunting in Karnor's (especially if you have weight-reduction bags, which you should).
# Apr 19 2001 at 12:59 PM Rating: Default
most warrior armour, including Velious quests, is heavy. They seem to think we are all Barbarians with 190 str. I'm a wood elf and I really wish they made some of this lighter.
RE: wt
# Dec 10 2001 at 1:04 AM Rating: Decent
Ya, weight.... Umm, did you say you were a warrior? Dunno bout you, but str and sta are a warrior's best melee stats, and str = weight-carrying ability. You said a 190str Barb, well I am a Half Elf with a tad over 200 str, so don't say that it's a big-race item because it's heavy.. It's heavy cause it's a warrior item, silly. BTW, Half Elves have the ebst looking armor, WOOT!

Bah, I'm a wood elf and I have no problems with weight. I have about 100lbs of weight to spare. Look for some weight reduction bags, or leave some crap in the bank. BTW, 179 str helps too. =)

dropped by froglok reet knight ? aha, and now where do i have to camp ?
# Mar 29 2001 at 5:48 AM Rating: Decent
the helm drops off juggernauts more often then reets, if you really want one get two groups of 55+ people and go down near trak's lair. You might get one that way.

while this is still a great helm. none the less is is still kinda heavy
