Velstadt's Helm is a head armor piece in Dark Souls II.
It is part of Velstadt's Set.

In-Game Description

Helm worn by the Royal Aegis.
Originally imbued with the power of miracles, now soaked with dark after extended exposure in the Undead Crypt.
A knight from a faraway land was lured to this accursed land, but forgot even why he came, eventually reduced to a shadow of his former self.


Sold by Maughlin the Armorer upon defeat of Velstadt, the Royal Aegis for 9,800 souls.


Boosts the player's Endurance and Vitality by one point, thus providing a boost to the player's total health, stamina and equipment load.


  • If worn during the Fume Knight boss fight, he will buff immediately.
    • This applies only to the host. Summoned phantoms wearing the helm will not cause the Fume Knight to immediately buff.
