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 from spells by ~10%.
  • Dark damage from any ranged or melee weapon is strengthened by only ~5%. This includes Dark Blade and Human Pine Resin.
  • This headpiece was previously in Dark Souls II and was named the Black Witch Domino Mask. However, the effects were not the same.  The Black Witch Domino Mask was part of Zulie The Witch's set in Dark Souls II, and the rest of the set can be found in Dark Souls III in The Ringed City.

      yeah, because streamers are great source for anything, just like wikipedia LMAO. keep worshipping e-celebs, who play games which you don't really own.

      • regarding the line of broken & unbroken, the damage remains the same & the dark absorption on the ITEM ITSELF is reduced to -15%, however under the char status the absorption levels remains unchanged.

          Unfortunately, this armor is a huge disadvantage in PVP considering half of all players do dark damage. That's not hyperbole. Mages, pyros, dark builds, or just physical builds that buff with human pine resin. So many builds deal dark damage. It's just not worth the tiny extra damage you'll do. Crown of Dusk is some times viable, this just isn't.

            On my dark sorceries build, with dark clutch ring, two dragon rings, scholar candlestick WA + izalith staff +5 offhand WA and 45/45, Great Soul Dregs do ~1150 damage on dancer, but with Blindfold Mask added they do ~1500. Meaning there are some sources of increased damage this mask scales with multiplicatively, or the mask lowers enemy resistance instead of increasing player damage.

              "It should be noted that the Blindfold Mask when not broken, gives -30% dark defence, while a Broken Blindfold Mask will give -15% dark defence, the attack buff will remain the same. (A streamer told me and showed me the comparison if you need evidence.)" This is not true, this is mearly a display error on the game's part.

                Why tf does a moaning knight (aka Eygon of Carim) have this??? Well im glad you asked (let's pretend you did, ok?)! My best guess is that he gave it to Irina so she'd have a better chance to become a firekeeper but it had quite the adverse effect, making her vulnerable to those little creatures nibbling her flesh (because it makes the wearer vulnerable to Dark and my best guess is that these things are affiliated with darkness).

                  While breaking it does display the decrease as -15% instead of -30% when viewing the armor, going into the status tab still says it decreases it by -30%.

                  • I'm only getting ~5% increase in dark damage. Tested this with a Dark Hand, Crucifix of the Mad King, and Murky Hand Scythe. Will look into this again when I get further into the play-through. I'm going by the numbers listed under "Attack power" rather than actual damage read-outs.

                      It was *****ing annoying to break this thing at Irythill Dungeon just to conclude. The -15 dark absorption reduction, is just visual at the item description. On the stats screen, it still remains -30, no matter what you do. And I don't think this is worth for fashion souls, cause I got almost one shot by a black flame. :(

                          some kinky***** was done with this.
                          also it doesn't really look good ingame unfortunately, because your character is most likely(almost impossible to make a decent looking character) not looking very good

                            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.

                                      i went back to kill him, so i could go to ng+ but he wouldnt spawn.
                                      I think maybe he only spawns if you have not killed a certain boss yet.

                                        Kind of dissapointed its not as rare as ds2... I was the only one I ever sw wearing it in all my 1000 hours

                                          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?

                                            It's Zullie's domino mask. Compare it to the DaS 2 item itself. Zullie has quite a bit of story bits to this entire dlc so far

                                              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 can't edit the page, but it adds roughly 10% more damage to Dark Magic. I got ranges between 11% and 9% so it's never exact. :/

                                                  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.

                                                    So this would basically be a dark version of the crown of dusk? If it becomes mandatory for dark builds let's hope at least it looks better x_x
