A med helm is a piece of melee armour worn in the Headwear slot. Like other melee armour, they provide good defence against ranged attacks, but are weak to magic attacks. With the exception of the Black helm and White helm, all medium helmets share the same stats as their full helm counterpart.

- patch 24 June 2010 (Update):
- Fixed a problem with haircuts and medium helmets.
- Before an update, they were called "med helms" or "medium helms". After the Mining and Smithing rework, 'med' was added back to the smithable helm's names.
- All full helmets used to offer more protection then their med counterparts, but with the Mining and Smithing rework, except for the Black helm and White helm, both styles now have the same stats, meaning the difference is only cosmetic.
