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 when unidentified.

Desirability[edit source]

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.

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 sources[edit source]

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