  1. Dragonplate Helmet

Just like the Daedric Helmet, this Helmet is specifically made available for advanced players. Beginners will have to wait until they reach level 40 to acquire. It is one of the most intimidating Skyrim Helmets. Base armor rankings place it at the 3rd best position, with a total Base armor of 22. To acquire it, players will have to search through random loot in chests or buy it from merchants. Another common factor that it shares with the Daedric armor is that it’s heavy. If you want to forge this armor, you must have a smithing level of 100 and a Dragon armor perk.

  1. Hevnoraak Helmet

This Helmet offers complete immunity against diseases and poisonus elements. However, it can’t protect you from biological ailments. It has a base armor of 23 and belongs to the heavy armor type. Players can acquire this Helmet if they defeat Dragon priest Hevnoraak in a duel. This duel takes place during the ‘Evil in Waiting’ quest. The Dragon priest will be heard instructing you to take it as a reward from him as he passes on. It is an upgradable Helmet using the iron Ingot and can be further improved using the Daedric smithing perk.

  1. Otar

Talk of a powerful headgear and Otar wouldn’t miss from the list. It grants a bonus of up to 30% to fire, shock, and frost for your character. However, it does not provide offensive bonuses against elemental attacks like other masks. You can use it as a substitute headgear. Players can acquire it by winning a duel against Otar the Mad Dragon Priest. This duel takes place in the Ragnvald Temple in the ancient Nordic city, north of Markath. It is an upgradable Helmet using the iron Ingot and can be further improved using the Daedric smithing perk.

  1. Daedric Helmet

This is one of the best Skyrim Helmets that I’ve ever come across. It is appealing to the eye with its dark, edgy appearance making it the best looking Helmet in Skyrim. However, this Helmet is for the advanced player. It can only be acquired in the advanced stages of the game because it is unavailable in the early stages. With this in mind, you’ll have to wait till you reach level 48 to acquire the Daedric Helmet. On the other hand, this is one type of heavy Helmet; almost its weight will not make you fall short in battle.

  1. Rahgot

Rahgot is one of the rarest Helmets in the entire Skyrim. It has a unique playstyle different from the other type of armors. This Helmet belongs to the heavy armor type, and you’ll have to employ a warrior playstyle to use it effectively. Even though it is not as agile as you would expect it to be, it deals a lot of damage to your opponent. Besides, it provides bonus stamina of up to 70. It is an upgradable Helmet using the iron Ingot and can be further improved using the Daedric smithing perk.

  1. KonahrikSkyrim helmets

Konahrik stands out as the headgear with the highest base armor in the entire Skyrim. With a base armor of 24, this headgear is unmatched. It comes with an enchanted armor set that provides healing for your character whenever his health falls short. Moreover, this enchantment will deal great damage to the nearby enemies. On the negative side, this Helmet is one of the rarest hence obtaining it is not a walk in the park. Acquiring this Helmet is a Herculean task. First, you’ll need to obtain all the other Dragon priest masks. Then go and place masks in a shrine at Bromjunaar Sanctuary. Lastly, the Konahrik Helmet will emerge. Considering the benefits of using this Helmet, it’s worth the effort.
