...little item for Rogues. I used this till recently, when I managed to get a Shadow Crown from HoT (SS quest armor). The 12ac is above average and the 8str added with the 8sta make up for any other stats its missing. The graphic shows as a chain graphic on a Rogues head, and in fact I miss it now that I have the Shadow Crown.

I was looking for a good upgrade to my Exe Hood and found this.

My main is currently a 45 Teir`Dal Shadow Knight, and I could care less about the Negative Intelligence count on this Helm, anyone who wants to beg to differ, meet me in an arena on the other end of my Mace, and I'll just pound your skull in for a bit ok?

I am constantly switching between the MoSS, and the Dark Edged Two Hander, there is a 4 point difference to the Intelligence there, and it makes no difference to me.

The -3 Int on this Helm is a decent trade off to get the +8 Stm for more HP in my opinion, and there are many, many ways to make up for missing stats.

Lol with that attitude about INT you might as well have been a Warrior. Apparently you don't solo much.

I bought one of these a few weeks ago for 3k, and I think it was worth it. I've never run into another person who had it, and when someone inspects me they just HAVE to ask, WTF is stats on Helm of Insanity... hehe I love the name. The graphic is a dark grey chainmail graphic, not plate. Looks pretty good on my barbarian rogue.

great stats on it for my rogue, too. I've been looking to replace my agi/dex gear with stamina gear. This looks much better than my Executioner's Hood (ac5, str4, dex9) but that's not the point :). At 48, this gives me about 10 more ac over the Executioner's Hood.

when this helm is worn, is it plate graphics?

Nice upgrade for crested or hammerhead helm...

Decent Rogue upgrade (Much better than Crested), but I would consider -1AC +1Str +1Sta -3Wis and -3Int a downgrade when compared to the Hammerhead Helm.

Sure.....if ya can afford to buy a hammerhead. But this is a nice helm for those who aren't twinked enough to hunt for it, and don't have the kind of money to afford to buy it. Not everyone plays this game with the idea of being uber ya know.
Nice for pure melees.

Since item has negatives for both WIS and INT, only war,rog and bards will 100% befefite from this otherwise great helm, cause none of these 3 classes care for wis or int

Hate to dissapoint you, but bards would lose out with this as well, allbeit in a real minor way. I can only assume you didnt list rangers paly's and SK's because of the lose of mana giving stats, but if you base it on that Bards have mana as well and it's based on Int.

Having said that I wouldnt care about -3 int anyway :) At 53 I run about with 54 int at the moment thanks to the big decrease with the Jesters Crown, and the -30 on that is only 1/2 a bub of mana to me. Plus there are only 2 songs that use mana anyway, so the loss isnt a great one, and one that wouldnt be considered.

On top of that, any hybrid class wouldnt worry about mana as much as melee stats, and -3 wis/int wouldnt affect their mana pool by any great amount. Good for all classes listed, at least below about lev 45, but is most beneficial to non mana classes. ie warriors and rogues as you said.

Hell with that. No hybrids should ever care about lose of 3 pathetic points. My Ranger and my SK wil be happy to have one for each..

P.S. Hint I on MT :)

We got one of these a few weeks ago also. My hubby the ranger was happy to have it. It dropped off of a "possessed sun revenant".

I got one of these a couple of weeks ago. I believe that it was dropped off of Ancient Sunflower. I know it was one of the sunflowers anyway.

Very nice item for straight melee, but any decent SK/RNG knows the differance 3 WIS/3 INT makes in mana could be the differance between death and one final spell that saves yer life. Nothing like being at 30 hp ans that mob turns becuase you had the mana to get off a snare !!!

Hehe, not that I'm an expert, but any decent ranger or SK wouldn't stick around to let their hp get to 30. Gotta figure that at 45+ mobs can nail you for 90+dmg, so if I get even to 250 hp my *** is heading for the zone, after rooting or snaring my mob of course. And once that mob is rooted I back off and get some wis+ gear on then heal. So -3 wis is no big deal, just take the thing off.

Duians is right but you should still even be able to determine whether you win or loose long before 250
