The Mask of the Child is a unique head armor piece in Dark Souls.

In-Game Description

One of the three masks of the Pinwheel, the necromancer who stole the power of the Gravelord, and reigns over the Catacombs.
This mask, belonging to the naive child, slightly raises stamina recovery speed.



The Mask of the Child has very poor defense and resistances, and cannot be upgraded. However, it provides a +10 boost (50% pre-patch 1.06) to stamina recovery. It is also very light. These characteristics make the Mask of the Child popular for both PvP and PvE.

The Mask of the Child's stamina regeneration effect stacks with those of other stamina-boosting effects, such as those of the Cloranthy Ring, Power Within, Green Blossoms, and Grass Crest Shield.


Cannot be reinforced.
