Hidden negative casting modifier when equipping metal helmet with robe
When you use a full bone set with a metal helmet, and with no helmet the damage of the spell is the same (for this I used feathered helmets for 0 encumberance).

If you repeat this with a robe, it appears that having a helmet with negative encumberance bonus -1 or so that you actually do less damage with the helmet than without.

Not sure if this is intended but seems like a bug, because I can't see what purpose this would serve.

It was about 0.5 damage less, but was testing on FP target with hits around 20

Test naked with and without helmet.

What encumbrace does it take to achieve the same penalty?
