The Northwarder Hood is a head armor piece in Dark Souls II: Crown of the Ivory King DLC.
It is part of the Northwarder Set.


In-Game Description

Hood of a Forossan sage.
Forossans venerated the god of war,
and sages who led warriors into battle were
called Northwarders.
Northwarders earned their title only after
completing a great journey of great hardship,
after which they would be worshipped
as oracles of the war gods.


  • Frozen Eleum Loyce - Found on a corpse up a ladder behind an elevator piled with coffins, along with the rest of the Northwarder Set.

General information[]

The Northwarder Set much like the Lingering Dragoncrest Ring extends the duration of certain Sorcery, Pyromancy and Miracle effects, the hood offers a 5% increase to duration when worn.
