Golden Sun Helmet is a Medium Head Armor in Nioh 2. Head Armor protects the head of the player, and can have varying degrees of quality and level, just like Weapons. In addition, they can provide Toughness bonus, physical, and elemental protection to your character. Medium Armor provides a balance between protection and agility. Toughness makes you deplete less Ki when Blocking, so if you wish to Block more often, consider wearing Armor that provides more. Usually the heavier Armor the better.
Golden Sun Helmet Description
The beloved helm of Goto Mototsugu, commo known as Matabe, who served as a retainer to Kuroda Kanbei and his son Nagamasa. After a disagreement with Nagamasa, Matabe fled his post and was ultimately banished from the family, preventing him from ever serving another household. He then spent time in Kyoto as a ronin, or masterless samurai, before serving at Osaka Castle. The front crest bears a blazing golden sun that represents Marishiten, a Buddhist deity that governs the sun and moon. Generations earlier, Kusunoki Masashige and others worshiped Marishiten, and so too did later warlords, such as Date Masamune and Tachibana Muneshige, who decorated their helms with emblems of suns and crescent moons. Marishiten is said to reveal herself as shimmering heat and cover the earth so as to be undetectable by enemies and therefore invulnerable. For this she is venerated by warriors.
