no graphic, lovely
# Aug 18 2003 at 1:59 PM Rating: Decent
For some reason almost all helms/hats/whatever in EQ look absolutely stupid. Thankfully, this item doesnt show up. I treasure it for that reason perhaps more than any other.

my sentiments, exactly.

Its a NONGRAPHIC head item. No error, no fiddling with your INI setttings. Many people buy these for just that reason.

This item has some great stats for a Ranger. I'm just disappointed that the graphic doesn't show :(
I keep it handy incase I fight, but on a casual run about, I sport a Runed Circlet for fashion (until I find a better one that will show).

As a Barbarian I like my hair to show, so no graphic I think makes me look better.

Not Shown on my Dwarf Paladin :-(

It seems that the helm graphic is bugged. It`s not shown when worn. I made the changes in EQCLIENT.INI (Add the line LoadArmor23=TRUE
LoadArmor24=TRUE), but it doesn`t work :-(

There is not supposed to be a graphic for the Ry'Gorr helm.

I am glad that there is no graphic for that! I have a Ivy Etched Helm and a Ry'Gorr Chain Coif for my Woodelf Ranger and in my eyes the helm graphics for Woldelf Ranger are really ugly. Those 2 items are nearly the same, but I will wear the Ry'Gorr any day over the Ivy.

Trick to Ry'Gorrs
# Aug 06 2001 at 8:08 AM Rating: Good
From what i have found only Elites and named Ry'Gorrs drops the armor. An easy way to get rid of the "fort trash" and get right to the good stuff is agro 1 or 2 and run them up to the small coldain camp. The coldains will dispose of them and you will have a free ticket to the elites/chief room. Just make sure you have good coldain faction before trying this.

# Aug 16 2001 at 1:50 AM Rating: Default
Dear Lord! Thats the only reason I picked up this thing! the AC and str are nice for a Rogue, but have you seen the stupid things we get to wear? I feel like I should be riding on the short-boat. This thing has decent stats, and has NO GRAPHIC. I wish there were more things like this... I was overjoyed to see that this had no effect. I was about to go back to wild-one-wig just because I got sick of being laughed at...

# Jul 06 2001 at 3:30 PM Rating: Default
If you have all options set right maybe need new graphics card or call tech support if u really want to see it.
# Jul 06 2001 at 3:29 PM Rating: Default
If you cant see it you have to edit your eq ini file, there is an article about velious armor here is the link
Also you must have the expansion in order to see the graphics. I hope this helps
# May 12 2001 at 5:23 PM Rating: Default
First turn off the damn caps lock.

Secnond its just the way most velious stuff is. all the armor is there but most helmets are no show. No idea why they just don't
Visible now ... Alas!!!
# Mar 06 2001 at 7:28 PM Rating: Default
Alas all good things end - now the Ry'Gorr coif is visible on wood elf and it looks like a stupid Zaharn Corornet...
RE: Visible now ... Alas!!!
# Mar 07 2001 at 1:16 PM Rating: Default
On Dark Elves looks like a chain helm.

Now that it's visible on humans it so doesn't go with the gold and blue color scheme on a human female. =(
Drop info is wrong
# Feb 19 2001 at 8:45 AM Rating: Decent
FYI, this only seems to drop off the Elites and Emmisary at the orc fort... I may be wrong, of course, but I've certainly never seen it drop off a cent, mystic, or oracle, or off any of the mobs inside CC. They changed the drops just after Velious came out so that may explain the confusion... so go camp the fort, be prepared to share/wait on a list, and be in a group that can handle a red con to a lvl 39. Oh, and be prepared to die if someone trains the Chief or Avengers to you.... on Morell-Thule this is one of the ********* most unpleasant camps I've ever been on.
Why this is a great helm
# Feb 14 2001 at 9:05 AM Rating: Default
For a rogue i know this is an awesome helm. It kills all the ravenscale by comarison. AC 13 is really nice and the str can't go wrong. SV magic helps on all raids.
And I Love How it Has No Graphic on a half elf male... i look really bad in a helm so i tunred down a woven shadow helm for it. if you can use it and aford this item i suggest getting it.
RE: Why this is a great helm
# Apr 08 2001 at 8:15 PM Rating: Default
Yeah, and there's no big deal about the graphic, I have an iksar Sk, sure it may not look GREAT but it suits my purpous

# Dec 11 2000 at 7:37 PM Rating: Default
it seems all the helm graphics from SOV are bugged and do not show when worn.
Hopefully this will be fixed soon !!!
It's not bugged
# Feb 26 2001 at 12:58 AM Rating: Decent
It's made of thin enough material (I'm guessing) that it doesn't show up. Personally, I like it a lot better than my old Fine Plate helm. :)
RE: It's not bugged
# Mar 07 2001 at 4:41 AM Rating: Default
Have you bothered to go into your eqclient.ini file and edit it to show the different textures there?
There are .. hrm.. I believe 5 values, which I don't recal the names to, but they should be quite obvious.. they are all turned to FALSE by default.. just turn them to TRUE, and *poof* you can see them! hehe
RE: It's not bugged
# Jun 02 2001 at 7:40 AM Rating: Default
I am a human male and still cant see it, all of my armors are TRUE
Probably not a bug
# Feb 13 2001 at 1:03 PM Rating: Good
I believe that Verant chose not to give the velious helms graphics because of the huge feedback on the ugliness of the current helm models in the game. They have done a lousy job of creating graphics for helms in the past and it is my hope that they dont bother to try to create new ones, but rather leave the velious helms with no graphic.

Im a human female and I REFUSE to wear a chain or plate helm as they are simply hideous. I bet you have NEVER seen a wood elf female with a plate helm on, have you? If you ever had you know why most of them dont .

Thank you Verant for the new helms that don't look hideous!

I have to agree with you, Kodachi. Just in case anyone's wondering, here's what Norrath's most beautiful dwellers become when they put on a plate helm:

Human females don't fare much better, although they DO lose the Satan Horns:

Umm... the link you posted for the wood elf actually shows the graphic of a half elf in plate. A wood elf plate helm looks like a silly robot head. Either way, I agree with you guys that they all look bad. But out of all of em, I think the gnome's plate helm looks okay.

#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 28 2001 at 8:31 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) That's not a bug! That's a plus. At least some of us think so. I like bieng without a helm graphic, since I'm a halfelf bard and hate the buckethead look.
RE: bugged helms
# Jan 03 2001 at 5:21 PM Rating: Default
It doesn't show up on the orcs either maybe it's not supposed too.
Yep, not seen on human fem, but saw on iksar...

(ooops, never mind, not seen on iksar. The thing just takes whatever graphic of the item you had on before since it has none itself, so I thought it was same graphic as helm of rile = / It has no graphic though so looks like bald head on iksar too)

Not seen on a human fem but when I put on my iksar shaman was the same graphic as its previous Helm of rile. Odd thing though is that in my char selection screen its not shown. Maybe it only loads the new graphic in the game if I have helm of rile on first.. i'll have to check after zoning.

Pretty happy with this stuff so far : ) My dark elf cleric has the arms, tunic, and legs on and looks great. She has 195 wis but the 20 mana on the tunic is still nice. Previously she had adamantite on she smithed herself, this KICKS ITS BEHIND severely piece by piece (the adamantite chest is 20 ac, but none of adamantite plate has stats, rest of pieces are same ac as rygorr) which is one of the reasons I pretty much no longer smith.

Although the Ry'gorr has an inflated price tag, basically you can get all but the chest camping the single orc oracle by the bridge (camped most the time due to this though I've seen it free at around 4 am to 6 am central) alone or preferrably with one other char.

My 52 druid can solo him but it CAN go badly PLUS some bugs are still not worked out of velious. Twice now while killing him and something else there I got that bug where even though snared and far away he hits me like right next to me though im running, and he melees HARD. He is however a GREAT SPAWN, popping just about right for mana regain. With a 51 sk i got the last half bar of 52 on him pretty darn quick and we got so much various rygorr and orc earrings that we were having passerby loot eventually since its lore. The legs, which are rarer, dropped only once but we both got several earrings, 9 ac necks, bracers, and that goofy fang 5 ac neck.

The main place for it is the always camped orc fort in center of eastern wastes. Only the chief drops the BP. The elites drop most of the other pieces and presumeably the oracle here drops same stuff as single oracle at the bridge. I've found that late at night, again, its easier to get a group here as they are usually begging for any types of healers. At least on tribunal people seem fair about letting everyone, even casters, roll on the stuff since most the melee types even have stuff better for them to wear but just not as pretty.

This will probably be more of a novelty soon, except for iksars for whom its pretty good, when better velious armor graphic stuff is found more. No one has even found the eroded or coroded stuff needed for the class armor quests in Thuragin yet so no idea how much better it is.
plate helms (buckets) =P
# Jan 13 2001 at 11:13 AM Rating: Default
Ry'Gorr looks like gold chain on human males and I personally detest plate helms on humans. So I would be happy with a regular looking banded helm in a gold shade.
RE: Yep, not seen on human fem, but saw on iksar...
# Jan 10 2001 at 6:27 AM Rating: Default
The Ry'Gorr helm does not show on ANY of the characters, I have screen shots of them all and none of them show.

I do hope this bug is worked out soon, but my guess is, there is no graphic cause doing whole new graphics for the helm turned out to be a nightmare.

Maybe we will get lucky and they will put it in later, when they have the look they want for all the races/sexes.
