Verac's helm is melee armour worn in the headwear slot that is part of Verac the Defiled's set of barrows equipment. Level 70 Defence is required to equip the helm. This piece of armour cannot be made using the Smithing skill.
Being part of Verac's set, when Verac's helm is worn, along with all of the other pieces of equipment in the set the player receives a Set Effect. Attacks have a chance of dealing increased damage(approximately 14%.) On a small amount of specific monsters that use the Protect from melee prayer, the set retains it's Pre-Evolution of Combat effect and has a chance of ignoring them and dealing full damage(most notably the Kalphite queen and Tormented Demon.)
The price of the helmet was once much more expensive than other pieces of the Verac's set because of a high demand for Verac's helm. For this reason, it is often used in scams - players would switch the helmet with a Verac's skirt just before the trade was completed.
Verac's helm is considered to be a full helmet, making it the fifth strongest of all full helmets (behind the degradable Statius's full helm, Torva full helm, Tetsu helm, and Superior tetsu helm). This helmet is often used in 'tank' combat due to the high defensive bonuses as well as a Prayer bonus. This helmet was commonly used during the TzHaar Fight Cave minigame because of its good melee defence and prayer bonus, however, since the Evolution of Combat and being updated to be the same as the Bandos helmet, its uses have become limited, as have Guthan's and Torag's.
Verac's helm is only tradeable when either undamaged or fully broken.

Repair[edit | edit source]
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:
- 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
