Onryoki Kabuto Description

"A helmet fashioned to resemble the head of an Onryoki, a variety of giant demonic yokai. The terrifying design is intended to instill fear into one's opponents as though a real demon, whose strength far exceeds that of a human, is standing before them. When darkness falls, this helmet's horns begins to glow, leading many to believe they once truly belonged to a demon. Only those who do not fear a demon's curse ever dare don this helm."

      Seems some are confused, this is a tank item. It reduced the damage you take, not what you inflict. That's why it slows the dash speed. Why would you think it reduces your damage?

          Is there any reason to wear this, it has a negative dash and damage handicap. Is there someone those stats change or is it just for those who want to make the game harder?

            For the record, the BLUEPRINT for this helmet, not the helmet itself, is dropped by the onryoki in the 'Isle of Demons' mission. Onryoki's in other missions will not drop the blueprint, or at least the drop rate is lowered (I had been farming the one in 'greater demon hunting' for an hour, I started running Isle of Demons and got it on the second try)
