This helm is BLACK. Blacker than the blackest black. It is like staring into a black hole or the endless abyss. Peak FashionQuest, looks amazing.

Why get rid of ranger

Why woudl you drop ranger from the usable class list????
Just a silly thought...

Something about this item must be wrong.
It can't be used by a iksar, as we know most plate pre-velious and some luclin arent usable for iksars, but a beastlord and ranger (who is leather and chain) can use it..

Im just wondering where the logic is.. would be more logic in this if they removed ranger and beastlord and added bard to classes maybe.

It's rasism.. :P
RE: Just a silly thought...

Not racism, their logic is that it is a FT3 helm made for the hybrid classes. Similar to the crown of narandi. The color of this helm is pitch black, so dark that u cant obtain the darkness of the color through the prismatic dye. Sad to say that it is actually rotting in my bank :(

Don't be fooled guys...FT3 is nice...but not better then 100hp/mana, sta, wis, etc.

I'd much rather have the great helm of true visions off AL then this.

But that's just me =)
RE: Pallies Drooling over this
# Mar 04 2004 at 4:28 PM Rating: Default
True, especially depending on the situation...

In most cases I'd take HP over FT... including this one. But AL's Loot Table is so horrendusly large, take this one if you can get it~ The absense of STA is not a biggy at all since I'm already passed max when I'm buffed, and the crappy HP sucks but the AGI and DEX are nice as well as the AC.

Just wondering if this is right that Iksars can/can not use this item?? I see teh SK/Bst tag which Iksars can be, but no Ikky in the picture of it.

Gutted if this is so since i really would like to see this on perched on my head, especially since it is one of the best AC items a bst can get, pre PoP. Anyways if it is Iksar usabel great, if not never mind, i knew what i was doing when i made the character so dem ar de breaks =)

Hey I'm used to it and I can't really complain since I knew what Iksars were about when I started, but this also means I don't have to spread my DKP around as much

#REDACTED, Posted: Jan 03 2003 at 3:59 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This is a one heck of a helm nice ac some melee stats and cold save helps and of course the FT 3
Cool liked the debat
# Oct 01 2002 at 11:03 AM Rating: Default
it would be a upgrade to my quest TOV helm
plus we are not raiding 24/7 and i do like to group alot.
but sometimes in the groups i am in we dont have enchanters. No clarity
and yah i do throw out alot of heals to other members in the group when the cleric is also casting on another..but for some reason it seems like they always make me the pullerSmiley: jester so i never get to sit down and medSmiley: king..and the Maintank alot ..
it is just a cool helmet i thought.
but in raid situation i sure like to be able to cast our group heal as many times as i can...
BTW i still think it is a really cool helmet cya online

holy sweetness very very nice helmet
RE: omg
# Jul 05 2002 at 12:44 AM Rating: Default
Actually it isn't that a high end raiding guild no one should really be worried about HP, melees should go all out for HP items and resist items. And ft3 is next to useless for hybrids. So if your a hybrid and wanna flash around your high AC go for this helm, but if you want to be effective on raids you will look for something with more HP/resists.

But considering it drops off THO(who is extremely easy) yes it is a nice helm when you factor in risk vs reward.

I must be missing something, because I don't understand why a hybrid would consider FT 3 useless. This seems (to me) and excellent helm for a Hybrid. I can only speak as a SK.

- Nice AC, thouigh I agreee HP and STA matter more (to me)
- The other stats are a nice balance. 20HP, 25CR (love it) and DEX! DOn't care about the STR, but as a SK I love every point of dex I can proccing lifetaps fire constantly if I keep my Dex over 220 or so.
- FT3 Mana, mana, mana. I am very good at aggro management, but the more mana I have to Self-heal (my healers like it when I add a 75 pt heal between every swing) or to throw a darkness snare, the happier my party is. My best spells are mana hogs, and FT3 is a nice little regen.

So I just propose that this actually *is* a nice hybrid helm, and think the palis and beastlords have reasons they'd like it too.

frist off lets start by saying, not everything you get equip wise should be considered as "raid gear" and items like this are for grinding those aa pts we all love and covet. ft3 reduces down time. those times when you in a small 3 man group, tryin to get them lil aa's to ding. secondly this comes as a class prefence, where say a sk or pally would have better helms out there to get a class like a ranger or bst lord would find 35ac helm with those stats nice. now let me say i play a high end bst lord atm, in small exp groups when im the slower, the ft would allow me to keep up mana standing when stacked with my crack/regen line.(as of new patch theres a line of these and not just spiritual purity) top that with the fact that most bst gear has under 20 ac, it becomes a benifit to me when i solo or partner off, yes the hps/mana on it are low, but its a helm not a diaper, being an iksar the 25 cold helps balance the race loss on cold resists, and 10 to my str dex and agi allows me to move for more wis and sta in another slot, an example to this is the fact that bst tunics with the exception of about 5 usable one are all under 20 ac, no bst only tunic reaches more than 18ac, with the tunic grande being the ancient burrower hide tunic of 50 ac ft5 and stats droppin in the burrower ring final mob in this zone. so any ac especially for me is a blessing. it all comes down to prefences, and yes i would wear this in my raid gear, cuz well im not gonna find much better for a while.

# Sep 06 2002 at 9:03 AM Rating: Good
Do your research on hybrids before you make a post like this. Pallies, SKs, Rangers, and BLs would love to be wearing this. None of these classes should be playing primary melees on a raid. If they are, the raid won't last long. My 2cp.

I would strictly prefer Crown of Narandi over this one. The extra AC and FT doesn't justify less hp and mana, not to mention the lack of stamina and wis/int... and the resistances on crown of narandi are spread out. I like that better than one big resist...

Seeing as a Pally has a NICE group heal this is awesome as they can use a high delay 2hs or 2hb and get a group heal off between swings or even lose one swing this is awesome all the way around for all hybrids.

Laf ft3 is great for hybrids. i guess you dont play a hybrid, and if you do, you dont play it right.

i was watching a caster royal rumber event in the arena on the veeshan server and there was a iksar shadowknight GM there with a nearly full suit of blank of grim blessings, i saw a bp, helm, legs, arms, gloves, feet, and bracer for sure, i dunno if there are any other new pieces...
Nice helm

haha ....FT 3 is 3 mana regen per tik dude...FT 2 is no way 12 regen per tik LOL....but worth a try you think shield of the creator has 60 regen per tik on the shield cause it has FT IV =P....naaaaah
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 07 2002 at 1:54 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This is the best item for an sk and pal i have seen in my life flowing thoughtIII i sure is going to be kick *** since flowing thought II is a 11 point per tick mana regen i wander if this will stack with the BRAIN OF CAZIC THULE as well that would be so kick ***

One of the coolest slot-graphics I've seen.... what does it look like worn?

# Jan 22 2002 at 12:44 AM Rating: Decent
The Crested Helm from Mistmore has this same inventory graphic also. Worn it looks like a fine steel tin can. Can't say this is the same but possibly.

I'm still trying to figure out what's so grim about this helm other than my chance of ever getting it. :)..

# Jan 17 2002 at 1:31 AM Rating: Decent
my guess is that it is a plate item so rangers and beastlords can't use it. I know is also says Iksar usuable in which case guess VI is just playing favorites :P

Ring war
# Jan 10 2002 at 8:53 PM Rating: Decent
This is almost identical to the helm dropped during the Ring war that is PAL/SHD only...weird huh???

RE: Ring war
# Jan 11 2002 at 5:05 AM Rating: Decent
Yeah, that's true, it is. Except, it's got 10 more ac, FT3 instead of FT2, 10 str/dex/agi as opposed to 8, and I think the 25 cold is unique to this also.

Of course, those are just the numbers I'm remembering off the top of my head, I'm not totally sure.
