Helm of leadership is a type of headgear that provides a bonus to charisma — typically +6, but stats from +3 to +9 are also common — and minor bonuses to DV and PV.


Charisma is useful for male characters to lower shop prices, or for anyone trying to issue orders to pets/companions. DV/PV stats are also reasonable for non-artifact headgear in mid-game. Rarity, somewhat heavy weight, and susceptibility to destruction mean that they are rarely used as a long term option.
