When used, the Vanguard’s Visage shoots a large sword-shaped set of bullets, each doing 150 armor-piercing damage. Very similar to the Bridge Sentinel’s own sword attack, it is practically impossible to hit every shot.

For absolute DPS, there is virtually no competition to the Visage, assuming you have a pet with high Magic Heal. This helm also gives a nice +4 ATT while maintaining decent defenses. This comes at the cost of Berserk duration, which makes it less viable in small groups with few Warriors.

This Helm does not give Speedy, which is useful when fast movement speed would interfere with tight dodging. However, it is worse than other “slow” helms for group-buffing due to a higher MP cost and low duration. If other Warriors are around, this shouldn’t be an issue.

Prior to Exalt Version (Mar 2023), the item had a 115 MP Cost and dealt 100 damage.
