Torag's helm is melee armour worn in the headwear slot that is part of Torag The Corrupted's set of barrows equipment. To wear Torag's helmet, a player must have 70 Defence. It is currently the second strongest helm in the game tied with Guthan's helm, Dharok's helm, Bandos helmet and Verac's helm, behind the Torva full helm.
The helmet is very popular in God Wars Dungeon because of its good Defence bonus. It is currently also the cheapest Barrows melee helmet. Some other players use it for range, if they wish to 'Tank' range, because of the small negative range attack bonus and high defence. They would usually also use this with Torag's platelegs, or Verac's plateskirt, due to the same factor.
Being part of Torag's barrows set, if Torag's helm is worn along with all of the other pieces of equipment in Torag's barrows set the player receives a special effect. Damaging melee attacks have a chance of lowering the victim's adrenaline by 20%. This piece of armour cannot be made using the Smithing skill.
- Torag's helmet is only tradeable when undamaged or fully broken.
- If you drop this item it will degrade to "0".

Barrows equipment degrades as it is used. Equipment received from the Barrows minigame is fully repaired and can be used for 15 hours of combat until it degrades completely and requires repair before it can be used again. Barrows armour degrades even if the player is using protection prayers or not taking damage. Like the crystal shield and crystal bow, Barrows equipment does not suffer in performance as it degrades from fully repaired to fully degraded. Fully repaired Barrows items start out with no numbers in their names, e.g. Torag's helm. It will become Torag's helm 100 the first time it's used in combat. Eventually it will degrade to Torag's helm 75, then 50, then 25 and finally 0 at which point the armour will be unusable until repaired. Additionally, Barrows equipment may only be traded if fully repaired or fully degraded.
When dropped or lost on death (even when placed under a gravestone), any piece of Barrows equipment will automatically degrade to 0. Players who attempt to drop Barrows equipment will receive a warning message about this.
There are two ways to repair Barrows armour. Players can talk to any of the NPCs listed below and they will repair the items for a price, or repair the pieces themselves using an armour stand in any player-owned house. The equipment can be repaired at any stage, and the cost will be adjusted according to how much it has degraded. The repair costs below are as if the equipment has fully degraded.
The following NPCs can repair the armour:
- Bob - the axe seller in Lumbridge
- Tindel Marchant - the weapon and armour repairman at Port Khazard
- Dunstan - the smith in Burthorpe
- Squire - in the workshop area of the Void Knights' Outpost
