Dharok's helm is melee armour worn in the headwear slot that is part of Dharok the Wretched's set of barrows equipment. To wear Dharok's helm, a player must have 70 Defence.
The helm is more expensive than the rest of Dharok the Wretched's set of barrows equipment. The disproportionately high value of the helm can be explained with the High Alchemy value of the helm. In comparison to the other items in the set the item has the lowest value and hence when a player dies, they lose this item and keep the other pieces effecting a significantly higher demand and hence the high price. Dharok's set is most susceptible to this effect as players using Dharok's equipment often try to keep their life points lower to increase the damage done with the set's special effect.
As it is part of Dharok's Barrows set, if Dharok's helm is worn along with all of the other pieces of equipment in Dharok's barrows set the player receives a special effect. Attacks do more damage as the player's life points decrease, up to double damage at or below 10% life points. As with all Barrows equipment, this item cannot be made using the Smithing skill.
Dharok's helm is only tradeable when undamaged or fully broken.
If you drop this item it will degrade to "0".
Barrows equipment degrades as it is used. Equipment received from the Barrows minigame is fully repaired and can be used for 15 hours of combat until it degrades completely and requires repair before it can be used again. Barrows armour degrades even if the player is using protection prayers or not taking damage. Like the crystal shield and crystal bow, Barrows equipment does not suffer in performance as it degrades from fully repaired to fully degraded. Fully repaired Barrows items start out with no numbers in their names, e.g. Dharok's helm. It will become Dharok's helm 100 the first time it's used in combat. Eventually, it will degrade to Dharok's helm 75, then 50, then 25 and finally 0 at which point the armour will be unusable until repaired. Additionally, Barrows equipment may only be traded if fully repaired or fully degraded.
When dropped or lost on death (even when placed under a gravestone), any piece of Barrows equipment will automatically degrade to 0. Players who attempt to drop Barrows equipment will receive a warning message about this.
There are two ways to repair Barrows armour. Players can talk to any of the NPCs listed below and they will repair the items for a price, or repair the pieces themselves using an armour stand in any player-owned house. The equipment can be repaired at any stage, and the cost will be adjusted according to how much it has degraded. The repair costs below are as if the equipment has fully degraded.
The following NPCs can repair the armour:
* Bob - the axe seller in Lumbridge
* Tindel Marchant - the weapon and armour repairman at Port Khazard
* Dunstan - the smith in Burthorpe
* Squire - in the workshop area of the Void Knights' Outpost
