Torag's helm is melee armour worn in the headwear slot that is part of Torag The Corrupted's set of barrows equipment. To wear Torag's helmet, a player must have level 70 Defence.
The helmet is very popular in God Wars Dungeon because of its good Defence bonus. It is currently also the cheapest Barrows melee helmet. Some other players use it for range if they wish to 'Tank' range because of the small negative range attack bonus and high defence. They would usually also use this with Torag's platelegs or Verac's plateskirt due to the same reason.
Being part of Torag's barrows set, if Torag's helm is worn along with all of the other pieces of equipment in Torag's barrows set, the player receives a special effect. Damaging melee attacks have a chance of lowering the victim's adrenaline by 20%. This piece of armour cannot be made using Smithing.
Torag's helmet is only tradeable when undamaged or fully broken.
Strange Old Man may give this item, as a hard request, in return for Butterfly flower seed x 4, Fremennik yak with either Limited Efficiency, Good, Regular or Golden Gift trait, and Maple roots x 1
Barrows equipment degrades as it is used. Equipment received from the Barrows minigame is fully repaired and can be used for 100,000 charges of combat until it degrades completely and requires repair before it can be used again; it does not suffer in performance as it degrades from fully repaired to fully degraded. The remaining charges of Barrows equipment can be checked by right-clicking it and selecting 'check-charge'. Additionally, Barrows equipment may only be traded if fully repaired or fully degraded. Items lose 20% charge if reclaimed from a gravestone after dying.
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 for a reduced cost based on their Smithing level. 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:
|Costs to repair
||POH armour stand
|Level 1 Smithing
||Level 99 Smithing
|The price is exactly 50% when operating a Smithing cape.
