Third Eye ( [ )
Item Type Helmet
Artifact? Yes
Weight 5s
Danger Level Unknown
Material Nonmetallic

The glowing gem "Third Eye" is a non-guaranteed artifact helmet. It occasionally reveals parts of the map near the PC (radius 7 + corruptions/2), functioning identically to the Antennae corruption. It improves Perception and grants See invisible. It appears as a gem-studded helmet when unidentified.


It is somewhat useful as an easily-swappable source of See invisible. Its mapping ability can be used to locate the downstairs in the Assassins' Guild. Otherwise, it is quite unimpressive.

Guaranteed/Common sources[]

It can 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).
