Helms of teleportation are a rare type of headgear in ADOM. They have typical stats of [+0, +1], although variations from these numbers are common. As their name implies they grant teleporting powers while worn.

Helms of teleportation appear as metal helmets when unidentified.


The actual level of usability for helms of teleportation is highly dependent on the player's preferences. They provide a significant tactical advantage (provided the PC can control teleportation) which can be "enabled" at will by simply equipping the item (unlike intrinsic teleportitis obtained from pools, pixie corpses or corruption). Some players, however, cannot stand teleportitis in any form, especially while playing PCs with easy access to teleportation (particularly Teleportation spell).

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

They can be found in the same ways as any generic loot.
