The Helm of the Juggernaut is a very powerful (and extremely rare) alternative to tiered helmets. Instead of Speedy, Juggernaut gives Armored, which temporarily increases effective defense by 50%. Maxed Warriors wearing tiered armor can easily reach upwards of 90-100 defense, allowing them to eat lots of bullets at no great risk (especially in low-level dungeons or the godlands). But while it may seem like it, you aren’t invincible; not only is the In Combat trigger unchanged, but shots will still deal at least 10% of their damage, meaning Armored is potentially overkill. Plus, stronger bosses will still have shots that deal hundreds of damage and/or armor pierce. Regardless, Armored is a very strong buff, and using this helm is much more mobile than the Marble Seal.
The lack of Speedy can be useful when precise dodging is required, especialy as this helm still gives group Berserk. But when rushing a dungeon or running through the realm, it’s nice to have a tiered helm on hand. A common technique is switch to the Jugg after using another helm; you can use Jugg’s +5 SPD and/or stack all 3 buffs for a short time. The extra defense can also make up for DEF-lacking armors like the Breastplate of New Life or Mercy’s Bane.
This helm is often, if not always, referred to as ‘jugg’ or in some cases ‘juggernaut,’ as the full name can be quite a mouthful.
Before Exalt Version 220.127.116.11 (Sep 2020), this item had a Berserk and Armored duration of 4.5s, a range of 4, and a cooldown of 6s. Armored was also nerfed from 2x to 1.5x defense. It has received WisMod.
