IMO, these are one of the best tanking helms you can get pre-raiding. Same armor as "Warhelm of the Bold (
)," with less agility and slightly less str (taking socket bonus into account). But the base stamina is excellent, and the high defense makes up for the agi loss. Goes great with the Keeper of Times enchant if you can afford it (
If you don't want to farm Botanica for the Dungeon Set 3, I suggest you stick with these. They aren't too much of an upgrade, and really minimal at best.
Currently serving as my early Kara tanking helm, socketed with a solid azure moonstone and the +18stam 5% stun resist metagem. That combined with glyph of the defender from Keepers of Time make for one hell of a MT helm.
As a tank I was still trying to decide which helm i liked better between the Myrmidon's and Warhelm of the Bold, but then I realized something, engineers can make epic helms at 350, which i happen to be at, so i'll be crafting
come the patch, well that made my decision easier.
In other people's opinions, what is better?
. I am torn between the 2.
When I was using this helmet I had a
Sovereign Shadow Draenite
Powerful Earthstorm Gem
socketed, and eventually the
Glyph of the Defender
enchant. Not bad for a freebie from a single Steamvaults run.
There's no real compelling reason to take the
Warhelm of the Bold
Greathelm of the Unbreakable
Blizzard's art department has really been lacking in creativity lately. I had a helm that looked exactly like this one at level 40.
Well, I think I had at least two rare quality helms with almost the same graphics as this:
drops at Razorfen Kraul
Raging Berserker's Helm
drops at Scarlet Monastery: Armory
I have a Warlord's Helm
+10 STA (enchant)
and this ranks 657 points higher than the Myrmidon's Headdress (un-gemmed) in TankPoints. Should I bother gemming this? I don't see how it can be better??
Great helm for a tank going into Kara. I put a 18 Stam/5% stun resist gem and a 12 stam gem in it yesterday. :)
any1 has pic of this?
this helmet or
Awesome helm for a quest reward.
my quest rewards are different then the ones shown here. i really want that helm but its not a reward for me? anyone know why
The helm is reward from the quest "The Warlords Hideout", which is a follow on from "Lost In Action". So find the missing guys in slavepens and underbog, then kill the end boss in steamvaults, and the helm is yours :)
The "Orders from Lady Vash" is picked up from a letter that drops from mobs in steamvaults, it's just a deliver quest, that gets you rep with cenarion hold...but not this helm.
the missing helm from the new brown valor art?
For a pre-Kara Tanking helm this is about as good as it gets. All you need to do is complete Steamvaults and take out the last boss.
There are (debatably imo) better Tanking helms but the stat bonuses, +Def and sockets make this an excellent choice you can keep with you for a long time. It doesn't have the raw armor bonus of the Felsteel helm (What non-Epic gear actually matches Felsteel set armor value?). But with the +18 Stamina meta gem and other socket it can match Felsteel's stamina bonus.
I'm a tank and i put the +18stam and 5% restance on stunning effects is that a good on or should i changeif so what one
My pally have this helm. Use a meta socket that gives you +def, add a enchant that gives +def from CoT (need to be revered), and you will get a helm with about 55 def on one gear ( and maybe more I dont remember)
Put a Tenacious Earthstorm Diamond on it and this helm beats the Greathelm of the Unbreakable
Got them both....
However this is ONLY true when you have enough socketed gems to get the meta gem activated (after replacing some plate pieces to non-socketed items i switched back to the greathelm)
I am still debating if its worth the money to buy a meta gem for this helm (for 125G) when there are other helms out there like Unbreakable that you don't have to spend the money on and they are just as good stat wise and look better.
Edit: Okay I figured it out, you can get
which will cost you one run through Shadow labs to get the shards. This is a much better deal than the $125 gold for the AH Meta gems.
Felsteel Helm is probably superior to this and you can get a smith to make it for you if you bring him the felsteel bars. I got the Myrmadon helm last night and I'm not sure I'm going to even use it--my Felsteel Helm is great. Check also Felsteel Gloves and Legs.... If you're a miner you're all set. Save those gems and get a jeweler to craft you nice blues for the sockets. FYI you can get a blue +8 strength gem from the vendor in Halaa (Nagrand) for like 3g, the best deal around...
Myrmidon's Headdress vs
Helm of the Stalwart Defender
? O.o Debating getting the Defender made... but it doesn't seem like that large of an upgrade, if at all Have the 18 stam 5% stun resist, and a 12 stam gem in the Myrmidon's, and a 16def 17 dodge enchant
