Acquisition

This item cannot be crafted but only purchased through trade. It reduces the mood impact of psychic drones.

An alternative to reduce mood pain is to craft a military helmet which only provides an offset of psychic sensitivity -10%, but considerably better protection to the head.

Usage

It's a niche item that is only useful during psychic drones, especially on your psychically sensitive colonists. It only blocks minimal damage, and with its low HP, couldn't last very long, either.

It can be worn by psychically dull colonists to make them immune to the effects of psychic shock lances and psychic insanity lances. This is not much use however, as enemies never use artifacts.

Quality does not affect its psychic protection, so an Awful foil helmet protects just as well as a Legendary foil helmet.
