An orcish helm is a basic type of helm, and often one of the first encountered. Its base cost is 10 and it provides an AC of 1. Being made of iron, it inhibits spellcasting, can rust, and protects your head from falling rocks.

Orcish helms are commonly carried by monsters such as goblins and orcs, and thus, can provide a little early AC (provided it isn't cursed.) It is entirely possible to find one enchanted up to as high as +5, if you're lucky. They are also a good polypiling choice.
