The Helm of the Juggernaut is an elusive helm, trading Green Up Arrow Speedy for the Wooden Shield Armored status. Armored gives +50% effective defense. A maxed warrior with tiered armor can easily reach 90-100 DEF, allowing them to eat lots of bullets at no great risk, at least in easier dungeons.

Remember that you are not invincible. Shots deal a minimum of 10% damage. This can make Jugg overkill in certain situations. In addition, endgame bosses like the Void Entity and Oryx 3 deal massive damage shots, and often armor pierce - Armored is unlikely to help.

It is helpful to have a tiered helm for the Speedy buff. A common technique is switch to the Jugg after using another helm, allowing you to stack both Armored and Speedy (and take advantage of the +5 SPD). Conversely, the lack of Speedy can be useful when precise dodging is required, especially as this helm still gives Berserk.

Overall, a strong, if extremely rare helm. It is weaker than it was in the past, due to the nerf of Armored and prominence of armor-piercing shots in difficult dungeons. However, it remains a valuable drop to this day.

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 (Sep 2020), this item had a Red Sword Berserk and Wooden Shield 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.

Before Exalt Version (Aug 2022), this helm also dropped from Hermit God.
