Final Fantasy XII[]

In the original version, Grand Helm is the most powerful helm and increases Strength by 12. It drops from the Rare Game, Tower. The chance of getting it is 3%, 6%, 9%, or 12%, depending on the player's chain level.

The easiest way to obtain it is to start in Mosphoran Highwaste and get the maximum chain level with Clay Golems, east of the Babbling Vale. The player should not pick up the loot to achieve the maximum chain level faster. At the maximum chain, the player must not enter the Babbling Vale, or the chain will be lost. It is best to turn off attack gambits as not to accidentally break the chain, and take the nearby chocobo by giving it Gysahl Greens, and head south to the Nalbina Fortress and then to the Barheim Passage.

The player can board the Strahl and fly to the Ridorana Cataract. The player must not touch any save crystals or kill any enemies, or the chain will break. At the Pharos the player must make their way to to the Dais of Ascendance 88F, where Tower spawns 20% of the time. If Tower does not spawn, the player can exit and reenter the area by touching the waystone. If the player has not killed any enemies or touched any save crystals they will continue the chain. When killing the Tower, it is important to try and prevent it from falling off the ledge when it dies, or it will not drop loot.

If Tower does not drop the Grand Helm, one can go to the first floor and move to the 3rd Ascent - Spire Ravel - 1st Flight again, or go and touch the colored sigils in the correct order: (black, green, red, sacrifice, and the clear sigil hidden offscreen). Tower will continue spawning and the player can obtain multiple Grand Helms if they are patient.

In the Zodiac versions, Grand Helm provides 50 Magick Resist, +12 Strength, +10 Vitality, and requires the Heavy Armor 12 license for 110 LP. It can be found as a treasure in the Henne Mines (Phase 2 Dig) and Cerobi Steppe (Feddik River), and dropped by Tower (1% chance; the same chaining trick described above still works), poached from Terror Tyrant (rare) in Trial Mode Stage 85, stolen from Behemoth King (uncommon) in Stage 90, and a reward from the Hunt Club sidequest. It can be equipped by the Uhlan, Knight, Time Battlemage, Foebreaker, and Archer.

Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings[]

Grand Helm is Basch's last accessory, and gives the support ability Hero's Monograph that increases his Defense dramatically while using Cover. It is a reward for completing mission 9-4.

Final Fantasy Tactics[]

A helm that wards off certain status ailments.


The Grand Helm is the second most powerful helm, second only to the Onion Helm. It protects the wearer against Sleep and Blind, and gives the wearer a bonus of 150 HP. It can be found as the rare treasure in Midlight's Deep ninth floor with the Treasure Hunter ability in the following coordinates: (X: 3, Y: 4 | height: 8).

a ===Final Fantasy Brave Exvius===

A powerful helmet that boasts of high defense and renders its wearer immune to sleep, silence, and confusion. Its defense is even more effective when equipped with heavy armor. Warriors who are completely covered in armor have the responsibility to not only look after themselves, but after defenseless comrades such as mages as well. Those who don the grand helm even more so, as the ailment immunity they are granted would most likely render them solely responsible for their troops in times of great crisis.


Grand Helm is a helm that provides 45 DEF, immunity to Sleep, Silence, and Confuse, and increases DEF by 20% when equipped with heavy armor. It can be obtained by completing "Attack of the 2-Headed Dragon".
