Mask of the Mother
Mask of the Mother

In-Game Description

One of the three masks of the Pinwheel,
the necromancer who stole the power of the
Gravelord, and reigns over the Catacombs.

This mask, belonging to the kindly mother,
slightly raises HP.


Possible drop from Pinwheel in The Catacombs and the respawning Pinwheel Servants in front of Gravelord Nito's fog at the end of Tomb of the Giants

Sold by Patches if he becomes a vendor in Firelink Shrine for 8,000 souls

General Description

Raises maximum HP by 10%

For early builds that use the mask, use the strategy detailed on Pinwheel's page for defeating him immediately after reaching the Firelink Shrine. It's roughly a five minute investment after starting a new game file, so if Pinwheel doesn't drop the mask needed for the build, one can easily start over and try again.
