Some crazy dude at some point must have thought "I like hats, but I don't like helmets, but I also like having a sword-resistant head...". Now we have iron hats.

Slot: HEAD Type: Medium Armour


The Iron Hat is a Medium Armour that is equipped in the Headger slot. It can sold from UC and Swamp armour shops.  

It is the headgear of choice of Black Dragon Genins. It can also be randomly worn by Anti-Slaver Jonins, Bounty Hunters, Drifters, Samurai Scouts, Strayed Paladins, Tech Hunters, Tech Hunter Gate Guards, Tech Hunter Guards, and Tech Hunter Ruins.

It can be crafted in the Heavy Armour Smithy after researching the blueprint.

This armour has inventory dimensions of 3x3.

Appearance[]

The Iron Hat is similar in design to the straw hat, with the exception that is made with armour plating. A wicker head cap rests on top of the character's head and then an iron plate covers the top of the head and individual armour plates are fastened together to create the brim of the hat. In real life, this design was used in Japan and was called a jingasa ("war hat"). While the item icon appears to be black, the actual hat is of a silver-like white tone.
