That doesn't look like a centurions helmet, more like a legate or something (common soldiers didn't have fixed crests as they didn't wear them in battle). Centurions normally had the crest going ear-to-ear. Centurions were only senior NCO's, they didn't get the really cool looking stuff.

@(Unverified) Well y'see, us silly Amuricans (and other people too probably) think that centurion sounds cool, and iconically Roman, whereas legate is more likely to make people go "Huh?"...

@Kaoss This is one MMO I think should have gone with the free-two-play system, even with all the improvements over the original beta it still does not seem worth the box and subscription cost.

@Unshra I imagine it'll inevitably go with some kind of freemium system in the not-too-distant future. Can't really imagine it otherwise.

I want one. I will wear it around the house while I vacuum even. I will wear it to Sonic to pick up a slushie.

I will rule my town.

@Beau Hindman For some strange reason I am picturing someone wearing the Vindictus hat with this helmet over it. 0.o

@Beau - Post that up on your Youtube page if you do the vacuuming bit, it'll be an overnight sensation!

@Unshra - I was thinking the same thing, also that is Vindictus' Elite Commander helmet that my Lann owned at level 32.

even if this game was F2P I would not play it. It was so generic, bored me to tears

Have to say, it seems a bit optimistic for them to be bringing out such a high price tag piece of merchandise for a game that can't exactly boast of being amongst the most anticipated releases of this year. From everything I'm hearing, they have enough on their plate just getting people to buy into the product.

Mind you, I do love Roman things, but if I was going to buy a hat ,I wouldn't want the game name emblazoned across it.

You can buy the EXACT same helmet (minus the Gods & Heroes sticker) for $70 - 100 less from any number of web retailers.

Here's just one of them:

@Nandini

Oops, maybe it's not EXACTLY the same, the crest looks to be slightly different.

Still, unless you want to pay $70 extra to be a walking advertisement for a failed game, why buy it?

$220 for a helmet for brushing spiderwebs... Wonderful. Why do I have to pay to be a walking video game ad? We're not in Japan.

It's great having a contingency plan. Since they will most likely not have more than a handful subscribers, at least they can sell 200 overpriced helmets and get their investment in the game back.
