Skull Mask is a unique piece of armor. It can be found as Loot. It is also a rare treasure from animating Item Scrolls. It will also be obtained from Tribe Guards, but this has not yet been implemented.
- 1 Skull Mask + 1 Middle Gem = applies Middle Gem to armor piece (piece and gem type shown as example)
When worn, the Skull Mask has 2 armor points, or 1 armor icon, and absorbs 8% of damage from the player at the expense of durability. It has a unique overlay over the player's first-person vision when worn, similar to the effect of wearing a Pumpkin. Wights will not be able to use their 'possession' attack on any player that is wearing the mask, making them much easier to deal with.
As with all armor, the Skull Mask can be equipped with Middle Gems as part of the Middle Gem Circle and to apply an additional buff to the player using it. The type of gem equipped can be seen in its tooltip.
