Torva full helm detail
Torva full helm chathead

The Torva full helm is part of the Torva armour set, obtainable by killing Nex. It requires 80 Defence and Constitution to be worn. This helm used to give the biggest defence and life points boost of any melee helm in RuneScape (outside of Daemonheim), until the release of the Tetsu helm.

Wearing this helm or any other piece of ancient armour will make all factions in the God Wars Dungeon unaggressive.

When received with CoinShare active, the Torva full helm will be dropped as 120 Torva full helm shards split evenly among the players and sent directly to their banks. 120 shards can be combined to create this item.

Ancient armour degrades as it is used. Equipment received from Nex is fully repaired and can be used for 60,000 charges of combat (though it degrades by 2 charges per hit, making the minimum time 5 hours) until it degrades completely and requires repair before it can be used again; it does not suffer in performance as it degrades from fully repaired to fully degraded. The remaining charges of Ancient armour can be checked by right-clicking it and selecting 'check-charge'. Additionally, Ancient armour may only be traded if fully repaired or fully degraded. Items lose 20% charge if reclaimed from a gravestone after dying.

There are two ways to repair Ancient 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 for a reduced cost based on their Smithing level. 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:

  • This item, along with the other pieces of Torva armour, was originally glitched and unable to be traded even after being repaired. This glitch has since been fixed.
  • Whenever Nex drops a piece of Torva, Pernix, or Virtus armour, a server wide announcement is broadcast to all players currently logged into that particular world.
  • Before the Evolution of Combat, when worn, the full helm increased a player's maximum life points by 66.
