In the event that the two augments you choose contain a common attribute, the bonus will be cumulative. (e.g. If you choose "Haste +3% Enhances "Snapshot" effect (+3%)" and "AGI+2 Haste +2%", the resulting augment will be "AGI+2 Haste +5% Enhances "Snapshot" effect (+3%)".)

Background Information

The ceremonial helm of the Royal Guard, distinguished by its stately crest in the likeness of a coxcomb. Its design pays homage to the traditional headwear of the Chattif, the ancient warrior clan of legend whose members wore no other armor, trusting instead their own battle-hardened physiques. They are fabled to have stayed the advance of a Windurstian host numbering in the tens of thousands with a band scarcely one hundred strong. Painstakingly recreated from a mural by the order of King Acheufagais, the contemporary model is forged from tempered iron rather than the original bronze.

Historical Background

A galea was a Roman soldier's helmet. Some gladiators, myrmillos, also wore a bronze galea with a face mask and a decoration, often a fish on its crest. The exact form or design of the helmet varied significantly over time, between differing unit types, and also between individual examples - ancient military equipment was not produced in assembly lines, but made by hand, so it is not certain to what degree there was any standardization even under the Roman Empire.

The in-game background information pays homage to the legendary Battle of Thermopylae in 480 B.C. or more widely known as the "Last Stand of the 300".
