      You guys are crazy, maybe your character is ugly in general. But with this, my male character looks flipping adorable.

          I have not seen it mentioned, but I am getting 20% increase in souls from enemies while wearing the Crown.

            crown of dusk boosts the ar of weapons that deal magic damage, but not even close to the claimed 10 % :

            - greatsword of judgement with 250 magic AR -> +12 ar
            - crystal mail breaker with 180 magic AR -> +9 AR
            - moonlight greatsword with 325 magic AR -> +16 AR

            tested without any ring to prevent hidden interactions

            that means the true bonus to magic dmgs is actually 5% , not 10%

              You know what would have been actually cooler , if this boost was on sage's big hat or karlas pointed hat or all of them cause they are hoods anyway.

                So how's this sound for a maximum-magic-destruction setup?
                1. Wear Crown of Dusk (+10% magic dmg)
                2. Equip young dragon, bellowing dragoncrest, and magic clutch ring (a whopping 47% magic dmg boost for all 3!!) In the 4th slot i would probably equip ROSP, lloyd's sword ring, or chloranthy.
                3. Hold Scholar's candlestick in your offhand for another 12.5% magic dmg if you are casting sorceries like CSS, but if you are gong for melee like me, just buff your weapon of choice with darkmoon blade (scholar's candlestick only affects your currently equipped catalyst's spellbuff, so you can't cast a buff like DMB and then switch to the candlestick for the damage boost).
                4. Watch your enemies' life bars melt away as you obliterate them a total magic dmg boost of 57%, or 69.5% (!!!) if you use the candlestick.

                I'll be trying this setup on my current character as soon as I have all the items (still need to farm concords for DMB). There aren't many enemies in this game that are weak to magic (I don't believe there is even a single boss who is weak to magic unfortunately), but i'm betting that the potential 70% boost will make magic more effective even against bosses like the dancer and abyss watchers, who are extremely weak to fire and lightning, respectively. To anyone who's already tried setups like this, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

                  Edgy, dark and climate veils, hoods, crowns, diadems or great mage hats. Yet, you still have to wear this crap cause you cant live without maxed dmg... especially while in DkS3 magic is so underpowered.
                  BTW it used to give a whole 25% bonus in DkS1, even while magic was good on its own.

                      A true Dark Souls classic, this utter piece of crap makes you look like some hideous clown sulking in deepest corners of hell, yet you will wear it because it buffs your casting skill up to heavens. A moment of silence for Dark Souls2 pyromancer handcuffs.
