The Helm of the Juggernaut is a very powerful (and very rare) alternative to the Helm of the Great General or other tiered helmets. Its main benefit is the addition of the Armored status effect, which temporarily increases the defense of the Warrior by 50%. In most cases, this will boost defense to 90 Defence, which allows the Warrior to eat a lot of bullets at no great risk. The Helm also gives Berserk, which is also found in every tiered helmet, and it allows the user to deal even more damage.
The Helm of the Juggernaut is, however, less practical then the tiered helmet in a few instances. When rushing a dungeon or making your way across a realm towards a quest, it is often better to be speedy than it is to be armored. Additionally, against some gods or monsters with lower damage output your Defense stat should have already lowered their attacks to their minimum damage (10% of base damage), rendering the Armored status useless. However, in cases where speed can be a detriment – especially in dangerous situations with high damage enemies or where one could accidentally run head-first into a boss – the Armored effect is preferable to Speedy.
A common technique used by many Warriors is to use the Speedy buff granted by the Helm of the Great General, but then to switch to the Helm of the Juggernaut to make use of the +5 SPD stat bonus, allowing the Warrior to move even more quickly.
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.
