The Crown of the Great Lord is a head armor piece in Dark Souls. It is part of the Great Lord Set.

In-Game Description

Crown of Gwyn, Lord of Cinder, who linked the First Flame.
Lord Gwyn, bearer of the ultimate soul, divided that power among his great clan before linking the flame. But he did keep his crown, perhaps to preserve a symbol of the monarch, for its actual power had fully subsided.



The Crown of the Great Lord offers mediocre stats and no Poise. The Gargoyle Helm (heavier by only 0.5) has about the same characteristics as The Crown of the Great Lord, but once fully upgraded, the Gargoyle Helm beats the Crown of the Great Lord in almost every regard.

The Crown of the Great Lord's only redeeming aspect is its very high Curse resist (20, the Gargoyle Helmet has none). That said, if the player is really looking to max out Curse resistance, they may consider instead using the heavier Xanthous Crown, that will offer nearly double the curse protection and slightly better stats.
