Danger Level 6
Material Crystal

Helms of mental stability are a rare type of headgear in ADOM. When worn, they grant a source of confusion resistance and a minor Learning boost.

Helms of mental stability appear as crystal helmets in unidentified form and feature characteristic white color when lying on the ground (attributed to their base material).


Helms of mental stability are relatively powerful items, combining physical defensive capabilities (which can be further improved using scrolls of defense/protection) with magical protection indispensable against powerful spellcasting monsters. Finally, they are made of crystal and thus are mostly impervious to item destruction.

While Learning boost is usually minor (+1 is the default value), it can be useful to get an extra skill increase at level-up or slightly improve spellbook reading efficiency.

Guaranteed/Common sourcesEdit

Helms of mental stability can be generated in the same manner as all generic loot.
