I got this helm last night after tanking Steamvaults for the first time. I must say that this helm is excellent! I had most of the HWL set mixed with BWL gear and have been hesitant to change it out, which is mostly emotional because i spent months trying to get them. This helm is just top notch for a tanking druid. The armor is a notch better than Generals Dragonhide helm, it has 1.25% crit and 1.33% dodge built in and the +hit that really comes in handy with PVE. For PvP I would suggest the Shadowmoon Valley quest helm. I say go get it! Use your best judgement on how to place the gems though. Try spending a few spirit shards on a good meta gem or get a friend to craft you one of the "Diamond-series" meta gems.
or assassinations helm if you want set bonus.
This one is just to damn ugly :P
I know you can hide your helm, but still...
Ugliest helmet in-game.. period... quite nice though. An with the right gems it's really nice :)!
I agree, this helm is extremely ugly and doesn't match my gear at all. Hide helm ;)
Besides being ugly this piece is very nice. Has strong stats and decent armor. With the right meta gem, you can make this helm from good to great.
With the new +12 agi and 3% crit damage gem, this really shines on Rogues. Very underrated helm IMO
Why does such a good helm have to be so god-awful ugly? Seriously. There's not much better out there for druid dps, especially blue quality. The only upgrades are also pretty ugly, though not quite as bad as this, but the only decent looking upgrades are the tier gear. Sucks. I'd pay for a reskin. Or at least a dye job. This thing looks like a helmet for a fancyboy football team.
I know I've seen this hat before:
This can easily replace any non-epic gear you've got before this.
Although it doesn't give resilience (for PvP-based characters, it's important) it's a good choice for both PvE (high attack power) *and* PvP (stamina).
Even without gems (sockets) It's a pretty good head item.
Best PvP fitting (non-epic) gems would be:
Jagged Talasite* - 30g** - +4 Critical Strike Rating & + 6 Stamina
Powerful Earthstorm Diamond - 100g** -+16 Stamina & +5% Stun Resist Chance
* Jagged Talasite can also be replaced by:
Mystic Dawnstone - 30g** - +8 Resilience Rating
** Prices are diffferent on different realms (servers), and also AH-dependant.
I was about to throw up from excitment when i saw the states and then i almost threw up from digust...the ugliest helm in wow not even agruable...its got great status though
Well, I've got the meta gem from spirit shards, and then the dawnstone with +8 crit rating... though it looks so ugly that the digust from it almost makes me puke, then I love it! ^_^ Hope you'll all get it, though i hope soon to switch it with the Assassination helm due to set bonuses, though it NEVER EVER drops
Got this recently. I have to admit that I have not yet seen an uglier head piece than this one.
This is also a top-notch helm for kitty DPS druids. In addition, a shortage of hats with armor bonus (there's only one epic badge reward outside of tier raiding or arena gear) makes this an attractive option for bear tanks too.
Cat/DPS druids will want to socket with the +12 agi/3% crit damage meta. If you need hit rating, go ahead and socket the yellow gem with hit rating. Otherwise, you're far better off ignoring the socket bonus and putting in a red agility gem than trying to socket yellow. Unless of course you want to use this to PvP, in which case the Steady Talasite (+resil, +sta) is perfect.
Bear/tank druids will want to socket with the +18 sta / 5% stun resist meta, and either the aforementioned Steady Talasite (resilience contributes to crit-immune) or just skip the socket bonus if you're crit-immune already and put in a +sta gem.
I think everyone is very happy for the hide helm option right now...
A much better choice for druids would be
While that is a great tanking helm for ferals, it would not be superior to this helm for DPS. Add a
Relentless Earthstorm Diamond
Delicate Living Ruby
for an additional 20 agility and a total of 45 agility.
+66 Attack Power
+14 Hit Rating
I think for most druids in Cat form, the stamina and minor agility loss are largely irrelevant when gaining that much AP and Hit.
Easy to get, and a great item for any feral to have. You should be running SV anyway to get CE rep for Earthwarden.
This is the best PvE rogue helmet until you got T4 or the badge helmet. Beats the epic helmets that drops from Netherspite and High king Maulgar.
Got this from the quest at 68 WOOT! Quest is from The Steam Vaults.
It should have a meta socket instead of rockbiter.
Fugly helm. It's hard to imagine a rogue being sneaky in that dayglow abomination...
and yes, it looks identical to the bramblewood helm *shudder*
One of the best non epic helms in the game...Blizz why why why :(
Good But Looks @#$%^&ed
The socket bonus does not work for me, GM said they "would fix it in a timely fashion, hmmmm
Its so damn ugly! why must Blizz punish the rogues with so many ugly items!
I actually got people whispering me "turn off helm graphics!" while walking trough shattrath city with this thing.
Stats are nice. Too bad it looks like a big green condom on your head.
What's with the complaining, that helm looks awesome !
ANybody have a good gem combo for feral dps?
Why should that cat suffer !
This helm is EVIL I TELLZ YA......EVIL......
O.O That reminds me of when my kitten tried to fit into a watermelon and she got her butt stuck in it and she had to walk around with it all day
Does anyone know the macro for equiping this and turning helm graphic on/off?
I have The Night Watchman (sweet looking helm which I want shown) and don't want to have to mess with interface options every time I do an instance. This thing is %^&*ing terrible looking. Haha, jokes on us rogues...thanks Blizz...
Seriously awesome picture.
Some words would be lost in the translation.
the helm is pretty close to this one
if u rogue and focusing on pve "stealther helmet of second sight" is not better, go for this helm
Between my +34 attack and + hit from revered with cenerion expidetion...and with the sockets i have 140 attack power on this thing...not counting the attack i get from the agi on it which is increased by 15% due to specing....best damn helm pre raid hands down
Blizzard should allow item customisation, stupid damn ugly helmet.
To many helms look like this one.....its worse than the Amini Mask of Death (or whatever its called. From hte nauru that sells some gear in shatt)......nvm Mask of Death is freaking awsome.
If you don’t plan on using the meta because it’s too expensive, you don’t meet the gem reqs, or you’re like me and don’t see much value in spending 150g+ on a helm you’ll replace, for PvE, stealthers helmet of second sight is better than this despite being a lower item level.
Cheap green gems on the three sockets on second sight could go something like 3 hit 3 agi, 3 hit 4 stam, 6 hit and that would give +1 stam, +5 agi, +7 ap, and +2 hit. All you lose is 1 armor. I prioritize hit right now and I am desperately needing some stamina, but if you need neither, you could do even better.
