White Preacher Head is an armor piece in Dark Souls 3. It is part of The Ringed City DLC.

An empty head of a white-faced locust that rose from an abyssal swamp.

The white-faced locusts were meant to beckon men to the dark with sermons, but most of them are unable to think past their own stomachs. Someone must rise to the occasion, and restore the path of righteousness.

Perhaps that someone is you? Did you not arise from the Abyss, and did you not resist drowning in the Age of Fire? Locusts and men are kindred spirits.

Location/Where to Find

  • The Ringed City: Head back out into the swamp from the Ringed City Streets bonfire, and head left and drop down to find this on a corpse.

Notes and Tips

  • No real usefulness other than comedic purposes
  • Interestingly, this is one of the only items in the entire franchise to address the player character directly. This is likely done to add an uncanny factor to the locusts.

      it's a reference to the Mergo Attendants from Bloodborne. Same goes for the Ariandel whip. Equip the angels knights armor, whip and this head and then you will see it for yourself.

        lol that tip, sure says alot about that mask. This may be the strangest headpiece that i ever saw in an souls game and its useless. Atleast the other examples of stangeness had some sort of use (the masks in ds 1, hollows shed skin in ds 2 and ofcourse the Symbol of Avarice. Also the Xanthos crown even tho it lost its usefullness after demon's souls.) Granted if thats realy its only use it sure does its job.

          I'm thinking one reason this was there was both because yes, it makes you look weird, but also because giving the player a weird useless item with a long description is about the closest thing you're going to get to DS games handing you lore on a plate. After all, I'm finding these preachers' complimentary nature mighty suspicious, and unlike the people in the mall I doubt it's because they're trying to sell me something.

            would've been cool that it had something to it other than looking weird... but with fromsoft now, that's to be expected

              I googled this item. The first image which came up in the results was the helmet from the Ringed City DLC. The second image was Joel Osteen's face.

                There was a naked guy in the Pontiff area wearing this and... he was evil.
                I invaded his world twice... the second time I was running around looking for him for 40+ minutes with 2 other invaders...
                occasionally one invader would give up, then another would show up quickly.
                This guy didn't open the short cut so you'd have to run up along the top while he'd snipe at you with the millwood bow, whilst wearing the obscuring ring then he'd run off to somewhere else before you could make it to where the arrow came from, I'm sure he was on a high NG+ as the silver knights took a ton of hits before dying (of course he'd seeded the invaders) he'd use them to his advantage too, weaving in and out of them... and it was scary when he'd appear all of a sudden with... that face.
