This hide helm is a powerful variant of the more common helm of the Mammoth Lord. Like its lesser incarnation, a greathelm of the Mammoth Lord is set with plates of ivory carved with runes, with a pair of tusks curving down either side of the wearer's face for cheek guards. The helm's tusks provide a gore attack dealing 1d8 points of damage for a Medium wearer (or 1d6 points of damage for a Small wearer) and count as magic and cold for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.

The greathelm of the Mammoth Lord also protects the wearer from cold environments as per endure elements.
