Skull of Dire Ahamkara

Exotic Helmet

Reality is the finest flesh, oh bearer mine. And are you not…hungry? Read Lore

"O BEARER MINE." What kind of talking skull would address its host that way? A stiff, stuck-up old fossil, not me. Ahamkara: the illusion that one's ego depends on an object, or an idea, or a body. Some people say you should have no ahamkara. Some people say you need to have the right ahamkara. All I know is that YOU are not an illusion. Understand? This world around you, the people you meet—they're a little thin, right? Cardboard and drywall. Cheap theater. Come on, try it out! Say: “I am more real than this.” Feels good, doesn't it? “I am the only real person here.” Isn't it like their insults and their bullets just went a little... soft? I came to find you, only you, because you're special. You're from somewhere real. And together we can burn our way back there. Can't we, o player mine?

The poor thing was butchered by its nerf and never recovered. Really a shame since the new Riven ornament is pretty cool

When a group of enemies are in a good radius with another group, using the top tree Voidwalker the super regained will be a quarter less than half charged. If paired with intellect mods in the armor pieces, you could potentially get a 3/4 charge til the super is ready.

Basically the most useless thing came out of an exotic engram. Why should I use it?
