Circlet of the
pure mind

Item Type Helmet
Artifact? Yes
Weight 18s
Danger Level 11
Material Iron

The circlet of the pure mind is a non-guaranteed artifact helmet. It increases the amount of PP regenerated per tick by one, improves Willpower, and grants resistance to death ray and confusion. It prevents instant death to the banshee's scream, similar to an amulet of protection from undead. It also halves damage done by contacting undead with Mindcraft. This is similar to the Mindcrafter level 50 power and stacks with it, resulting in one quarter the normal damage. It appears as a circlet when unidentified.


It is a quite useful item, especially for spellcasters, effectively doubling the rate of PP regeneration in the absence of other item or class bonuses (which do stack with the circlet's bonus). It is very helpful against the confusion spell.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

It can be received as a crowning gift for Mindcrafter and Priest.

It can also be granted as a precrowning gift or a reward for making use of a potion of uselessness, generated in a surge of power or greater vault, or generated as random loot (albeit very rarely).
