Helm of beauty is a type of headgear that provides minor bonus to appearance (typically +1, sometimes up to +4). In their unidentified form they appear as silver helmets, which can also be silver helmets or helms of leadership.


Appearance is somewhat useful for resisting corruption and reducing shop prices (latter for females only), but bonus is typically too small to provide significant difference. Diadems of beauty are more common, weigh less, and provide higher bonus to appearance.
