|Examine||A sturdy helmet that belonged to Rupert the beard.|
The dwarven helmet is obtained as a reward for completing the quest Grim Tales, and requires 50 Defence to equip. A notable feature of this helm is its crush attack bonus. The helm has a nicely balanced combination of defensive statistics, making it fairly useful in places such as the Abyss where the various monsters use different attack types, and against waterfiends where a crush attack bonus is useful (except on slayer tasks where a black mask or slayer helmet is advisable). Its Magic defence bonus is also fairly impressive compared to other helms. The helm is marginally worse than the rune full helm in terms of defensive stats, but does not have a negative Magic defence bonus and has the crush attack bonus.
If lost, a replacement can be obtained by talking to Rupert the beard beside Miazrqa's tower, where he was kept prisoner during Grim Tales (between Goblin Village and Ice Mountain), for a fee of 60,000 coins.
This helm is one of the best options for fighting the Corporeal beast alone, having the highest crush attack bonus for the head slot (increasing the accuracy of a Statius's warhammer), combined with a high magic defence bonus (2 more than the helm of Neitiznot).
