Whispered rumors speak of the Black Legion, a band of brutal and heartless warriors who destroyed any who betrayed King Maliken during his conquest of human lands. All that remains of this fabled legion are relics such as their horned, enchanted helmets, fiercely sought after by warriors who aspire to equal prowess. The helms boost Health and recovery and often deflect significant damage.
