ChargingEdit

The helmet is charged with Zulrah's scales, requiring 11,000 scales to fully charge it, costing 1,287,000. It cannot be equipped if it is uncharged, except when fully degraded while equipped. When fully charged, the helmet will last for 15 hours of combat before returning to its uncharged state.

When equipped, the helmet will grant immunity to venom and poison. In addition, if a player attacks an NPC with the helmet equipped, there is a 1 in 6 chance (16.7%) the opponent will be inflicted with venom, providing that they are not immune to poison. This effect only applies to NPCs the player attacks with melee and does not work on other players.

Death & dismantlingEdit

If a player dies with the helmet in PVP and it is not protected, any scales that were used to charge it will appear on the floor along with the uncharged helmet.

In addition, players can dismantle an uncharged helm to receive 20,000 Zulrah's scales, resulting in a profit of 7,770 coins.

RecolouringEdit

The player can use mutagens dropped by Zulrah to recolor the serpentine helm into one of its two color variants: using a magma mutagen creates a magma helm, and using a tanzanite mutagen creates a tanzanite helm. These variants do not apply any stat changes and are purely cosmetic. The only way to obtain the recolored helmets is by killing Zulrah herself, as the mutagens or recolored helmets cannot be traded.

TriviaEdit

  • Upon release, if an opponent attacked a player with the helmet equipped, there was a 1 in 6 chance (16.7%) they would be inflicted with venom, providing that they weren't immune to poison. In addition, the helmet had a +5 strength bonus. The envenoming effect and strength bonus were removed and reduced (to +3) respectively in an update on 25 May 2017.
    • Due to player complaints about the serpentine helm being left with no offensive benefits in comparison to the much cheaper Helm of neitiznot given the previous change, an update the next day brought back the envenoming capabilities of the helmet. However, it will only work against NPC's that the player attacks with melee.
