Helm of Balduran is a powerful relic that once belonged to the famous explorer and founder of Baldur's Gate, Balduran. It is one of the most sought after pieces of headgear in the game. Aside from offering protection from critical hits, it also provides a +1 bonus to armor, lowers THAC0 by 1, increases the max hitpoints of the wearer by five points and gives the wearer a +1 bonus for all saving throws.

In classic BG, it's the only helm other than Helm of the Noble, that boost AC.

This item appears in BGBGII(SoA)BGII:EE(SoA).
