No support for Helmet.

The helmet is OP. You're devaluing Serpentine Helm for no reason.

Other than that, good content.

As of now I'm looking forward for this quest and the new Neitiznot helmet. Stats looks good to me as proposed. Just don't make it another dead content item before release. +6 strength bonus is fine as serpentine helm has it's own niche, envenoming opponents & immunity to poison/venom. Not to mention it's defensive stats. +1 strength bonus over that doesn't devalue it.

Also take into consideration what Disloyal said. Would love to see either variants or upgrades to Berserk, Archer & Farseer helmets.



They could make it +5 and it won't be dead content. So, automatically, they should. Power creep for no reason is bad. It's like when they gave Avernic +2 more bonus over Dragon when +1 would have sufficed. It's just not good for the longevity of the game.

Strength and Prayer bonus is superior to Defense bonus when training against mobs/Slayer, and lower level PVMing.

+6 is overkill.


Upgrades to Berserk, Archer, and Farseer Helms sounds like a GREAT idea. Let Neitiznot be the good Tribrid helmet, but make each of those three perhaps slightly better in each of their respective styles of combat.

A Berserker Helmet upgrade with +6 STR and zero prayer bonuses, with lower defenses than Neitiznot Faceguard (presumably +5 STR with this suggestion), might be appropriate.


SUMMARY: Increases in total possible Strength bonus is NEVER something you should take lightly, J-Mods. This one stat in particular is something you need to pay VERY close attention to.

New helm is fine. As noted, Serp is fine as is due to the poison properties, and if you absolutely have to nerf the str on the faceguard to +5, you need to buff the prayer and other stats more, because this has way too many requirements for bad stats if it can't even vaguely compete with Serp. I would also like to see upgrades for the other frem helms though.


Lol what are you talking about?

This is only a Master-level quest, and even at +5 the helm is superior to Serp due to its Prayer bonus in every case other than poison/venom, including the fact that it doesn't degrade while the Serp helm does degrade.

Vote no to wasted power creep.
