Havel's Helm is a helmet in Dark Souls II. It is part of Havel's Set.

In-Game Description

A helm as if hewn from a giant boulder. Offers stupendous defense, but weighs a ton.
The origin of the name Havel is not clear. Some say it was the warrior who wore the armor, but others say that it was the name of a great kingdom ruined in a barbaric war.


Havel's Helm is available in the Upper Gutter after receiving the Forgotten Key from the Giants at the bottom of Black Gulch, hidden away near The Rotten.


Havel's Set in general is one of the most protective armors in the game. When fully upgraded, only the Smelter Demon Helm and Gyrm Warrior Greathelm have better physical defense.
