A dark elven helm is a type of helm that appears in EvilHack. It is made of spider silk, and appears as a spider silk hat when unidentified.


Drow characters start the game with knowledge of the dark elven helm. Drow Knights start with a dark elven helm in place of the role's standard helmet.

Drow mercenaries have a 23 chance of generating with a dark elven helm that counts for 2 points of their target generation AC, while other non-undead drow have a 14 chance of generating with a dark elven helm.


While worn, a dark elven helm grants 2 base AC. Drow gain a bonus point of AC while wearing dark elven helms, and can safely enchant them to +7.
