Wearing this will drive you instantly insane; even the shadows will tolerate you.

-Scrapbook Description

The Bone Helm is an Armor Item exclusive to Don't Starve Together, introduced in A New Reign. It is dropped by the Ancient Fuelweaver along with the Bone Armor and Shadow Thurible. It absorbs 70% of damage done by physical attacks and provides 20% Wetness resistance.

Upon wearing the helmet the player will experience the effects of 0 Sanity, similar to the Nightmare Amulet. However, upon wearing the Helm, all Shadow Creatures will become neutral. They will not attack unless provoked or the Helm is taken off. The aggressive creatures that spawned before the Helm was worn will remain aggressive towards the player.

It can be deconstructed using a Deconstruction Staff for 10 Bone Shards and 4 Nightmare Fuel.

When in groups, attacking one will cause the other Shadow Creatures to become aggressive towards the player. They remain aggressive for about 2 minutes, and then they will become neutral again. If one player is wearing the helm and another is insane, the creatures will spawn to hunt the insane player while keeping the other one completely unharmed.

  • The Woven - Elegant Shadow Helmet skin was introduced in the An Eye for An Eye update in 2021, as a crossover collaboration with Re-Logic's Terraria. Its rarity was Inspired - Elegant initially, but received change in August 19, 2022.

Placeholder.png Trivia

  • The Bone Helm was added in a Bonus Update after the completion of A New Reign.
  • While wearing a Bone Helm, neutral Shadow Creatures (and Nightmare Creatures) will often perform their attack animation when near the player, then back away.
  • The deconstruction effect suggests the Helm is constructed of bone fragments bound by Nightmare Fuel, which means that the Ancient Fuelweaver is not destroyed when he is killed, but is rather bound back to the shadow dimension while some parts of him that were bound by the nightmare residue remain intact and bound by the "flesh" of the Fuelweaver long after he is obliterated. This in turn may mean that all shadow creatures are never killed, but just transport back to the shadow dimension, leaving behind the residue - Nightmare Fuel.

Prototype.png Tips

  • The Bone Helm can be used to farm Nightmare Fuel from Shadow Creatures or Beardlings as the Shadow Creatures will remain passive and will not hurt the player.
  • Alternatively, if the player approaches low Sanity in Caves or elsewhere one can not gain Sanity easily, Bone Helm can be worn to immediately lower the Sanity to 0 with no negative side effects
