Ancient Helms can be enhanced by a Great Fairy and can be Dyed at the Kochi Dye Shop. The Ancient Helm, alongside the Ancient Cuirass and Ancient Greaves, compose the Ancient Set. When each piece of the Set has been enhanced at least two times by a Great Fairy and the full Set is worn, it provides an Ancient Proficiency Set Bonus.
