For helmets in other games, see Helmets.

This page lists helmets in Dragon Age: Inquisition. Unlike light, medium and heavy armors, helmets are not specific to any class and can be worn by any human, dwarf or elf. Qunari cannot equip helmets and instead equip vitaars. The only exception is that of Iron Bull's unique helmet Dread.
