Helm of the Rock is a magical item which grants the wearer, who must be a fighter, 25% resistance to fire, cold, electricty, acid and poison. The helmet has a weight of 2 lbs and it does not provide protection against critical hit. This item appears in Baldur's Gate II: Throne of Bhaal and this item will probably appear in Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition. Cespenar can upgrade the helm for you, which requires 5000 gold.
|“||This helm grants a warrior immunities far beyond mere physical protections. It is obvious there once used to be a set of horns protruding from the metal cap, though the horns and any magic associated with them have long since disappeared.||”|
When the horns are added to the helmet, it can be used thrice per day to cast Aura of Command, which forces enemies to make save at -2 or flee in terror. The effect of the spell can be compared to Cloak of Fear.
|“||With the addition of the horns, the Helm of the Rock is even more powerful. Generals and military leaders can command both fear and respect simply by wearing this helm.||”|
