Blindfold Mask is an armor piece in Dark Souls 3. It was added in The Ringed City DLC.




An eye-occluding mask of unknown origin. Small cracks allow the wearer to see.

Strengthens dark attacks, but also greatly increases damage sustained from dark.

This purple steel creation has a certain resemblance to the Fire Keeper's crown, but the similarity is purely cosmetic.





Location/Where to Find





Notes and Tips

  • Boosts dark damage and reduces your dark defense in the same way Crown of Dusk does for magic damage.
  • Adds damage to dark spells and dark attacks (though not as much as the former).
  • This headpiece was previously in Dark Souls II and was named the Black Witch Domino Mask. However, the effects were not the same.

      In dark souls 2, this mask was known as "domino mask" and belonged to the witch Zullie. The DS2 item description went thus:
      "Domino mask worn by Zullie the Witch, seducer of Alva the Wayfarer. Strenghtens magic attacks but reduces max HP.
      When Zullie the witch learned of Alva's dedication to Saint Serrate she used all manner of tricks and deceit to ruin him, but in the end she would spend her life with him, supporting his endeavors."

      It appears that Zullie was interested in beguiling holy, faithful knigts who dedicated themselves to maidens. Eygon was also a Carim knight who served Irina, which would give Zullie incentive to follow him. If we assume that the Moaning Knight is indeed Eygon, it would make sense that Zullie approached him at some point and gave him this mask. I can't draw any lore connections more than this, but it's interesting to note that Irina was angling to become a firekeeper - and although the mask resembles a firekeeper's crown, it also strengthens dark and has cracks which allow sight - both in direct opposition of a firekeeper's character i.e. to 'embrace the dark' (not strengthen it) and 'be stripped of vision'.

        It increases inherent Dark damage on weapons, though not by much. Weapon buffs that add Dark damage are increased as well.

        I made a video that proved it.

          Can confirm that if you buff a weapon with Dark Blade, while wearing Blindfold Mask, damage form attacks is increased.
          Blindfold Mask + Dark Clutch Ring gives a 25-30% increase to damage dealt with a weapon buffed with Dark Blade.

            It increases Dark Spell damage by ~10%, and increases the AR of the Dark part ny ~5%; for instance, for a Dark Longsword with 100 physical AR and 300 Dark AR, it would ends up with 100 physical AR and 315 Dark AR. The damage amplification effect works in the same way for both PvE and PvP.

              I'm pretty sure this is part of the "antiquated plain set", just like the crown of dusk is part of the "antiquated set".

              Use alongside "antiquated plain garb", "shadow gauntlets" and "shadow leggings" for fashion souls.

                So, the moaning knight fell off of the ledge and I was rushing through the area. I've died about 20 times since then. Other than having another player drop it for me, will the mask still be there?

                  This thing boosts the strength of Dark Blade as well. Great to stack with dark clutch ring. My Sharp Murky Hand Scythe +10 has an AR of 316. With the blindfold mask 319, with the clutch ring 328. Now when I buff it with Yorshka's Chime+10 (spell buff 263) the AR goes to 599 1h 603 2h. Without the ring and mask, and just dark blade: 540, with just the mask 554, just the ring, 582.

                    I was thinking of using this with the antiquated plain set. That doesn't have a headpiece, and the colours seem to work together, although I guess it doesn't make much sense to use this if you're not using a dark build.
