The Helm of the Noble (Helm of the Noble +1 in-game), also known as Helm of Glory, is an enchanted helmet. Aside from protecting the wearer from critical hits, it raises charisma by 1 point and provides a -1 bonus to armor class.

In classic BGnoglow1, it's the only helm other than Helm of Balduran, that can boost AC.

This item appears in BGnoglow1BGEEglowCOADCNTR00004(SoA)BGIIEESoAglow(SoA).


Baldur's Gate IEdit

This helmet can be obtained in the city of Baldur's Gate in one of the houses around the Ducal Palace when the party kills Jardak.

Baldur's Gate IIEdit

This helm is gained as a reward from the first mission from the Temple of Helm in the Athkatla Temple District in Athkatla. It no longer looks the same as in Baldur's Gate.

In-game descriptionEdit

Helm of glory: 'Helm of the Noble.' Named for its original owner, Sir Tain the Noble, this helmet saw many great battles in his possession. It was eventually passed to Sir Tain's squire, who had served him faithfully for almost ten years. Alas, the young man had neither the strength, nor the skill to uphold his master's legacy. It is rumored he lost his life of a worthy, but ultimately futile cause, and the helm has had many owners since.
