Viking Helm is a mid to high-rank helmet that provides 19 Defense (7 in the NES version), 5 Magic Defense (7 in the NES version), and 10% Evade (NES only). It can be bought for 5,500 gil (3,000 in the NES version) at Amur or found at Saronia. It can be equipped by the Viking and Onion Knight jobs.
Vikings were Norse seafarers who raided and traded from their Scandinavian homelands across wide areas of northern and central Europe, European Russia, Mediterranean littoral, North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia, North Atlantic islands and as far as the north-eastern coast of North America during the late 8th to late 11th centuries. The term is commonly extended to the inhabitants of Viking home communities during what has become known as the Viking Age.
Modern conceptions of the Vikings often differ from the historical sources painting a romanticized picture of noble savages. Current popular representations of the Vikings are typically based on cultural clichés.
