The dragon helm (previously dragon med helm) is a tier 60 helmet. The dragon helm was the first piece of dragon armour to be released into the game. Upon its release, it was the most powerful melee helm in the game, surpassing the rune full helm.
As the rare drop table did not exist at the time, very few monsters dropped the dragon helm. This low supply combined with high demand pushed its price to over 3 million coins; however, its price gradually declined with the release of competing helmets such as the Barrows helms, the helm of neitiznot, and the dragon full helm, as well as the release of the rare drop table. Today, the dragon helm's price is very close to its High Level Alchemy value. While having lost much of its former popularity, it is still a commonly used piece of armour due to its relatively low price and decent bonuses.
When enchanted by Pikkupstix, the dragon helm's eyes glow when charged with at least one scroll.
