"A leather strap with an affixed lamp."
Worn On: Head
Starting equipment for: Child of the Deep.
Although it offers no defensive capacity whatsoever, the headlamp still serves a useful function, freeing up a hand slot you'd normally use wielding a torch or glowsphere in exchange for your head slot. Depending on what other equipment you have, this trade might be very worthwhile: do you get more value trading in your torch for a shield or better weapon? In either case, it is worse both defensively and in terms of light production than the Miner's Helmet (which is also much easier to acquire).
