"Mask forced on a victim's head to lend torture an extra degree of cruelty.
It magnifies one's fears and makes them acutely aware of all forms of pain.

Raises attack power when the wearer suffers from madness.

When the Black Dumpling goes on, the torturer no longer seeks answers; only to inflict suffering without hope of relief."

Elden Ring Black Dumpling Notes & Tips

  • Sell Value: runes currency elden ring wiki guide 18 10 Runes
  • Base drop rate is 0.5% (at 100 Discovery)
  • Best place to farm is in Volcano Manor. 
    • The darkened stairwell prior to reaching the Guest Hall site of grace has several First Generation Albinaurics in it
    • The shortcut that leads directly to the entry hall of the Volcano Manor is also a viable option, however, this requires beating the Godskin Noble first
  • Boost damage 10% for 60 seconds after you suffer Madness. This buff persists even if the helm is removed'
  • Unendurable Frenzy is the best tool for intentionally triggering the madness buildup.  If you are earlier in the game, The Flame of Frenzy spell can be a viable alternate option

      I was farming magma blades which have 1% drop rate... Didn't got a single one but on my way for farming these i sometimes killed the single annoying f***er hiding just outside the elevator on the left and got this instead.. fuk this game.

        The Guest Hall grace is a much better farming spot with 1 dumpling guy right outside the room, 4 more in the dungeon/torture area, and 1 more that comes down from the stairs in the same area.

          Hmm.

          I just got this. Had no clue what it was until I came here to look it up just now.

          Seems pretty sweet. I farmed for them for a total of 0 minutes. How does that make you feel?

            Will this drop from the one at the subterranean inquisition chamber? I see no reason as to why it wouldn't but I haven't seen anyone mention farming that guy

                so i dont know when or how since never got the NEW! message but was about to farm this and the fish head, and then was going through my helms only to find out i already had them both.... so a yay but also damn is the NEW! pop up buggy at times, almost wasted hours of my life farming for something i already had XD.

                  You don't need to use Howling Shabriri, or even be a faith build at all, to make use of this item. Use a Frenzyflame Stone. They're easy to craft once you find the recipe in the Cathedral of the Forsaken area. Sanctuary Stones can be brought from the bell bearing in Farum Azula, and Yellow Embers can be easily gotten from the opposite end of the bridge next to 9th Campsite in Gelmir, several of them near the frenzied knights there (though they're hard to see in the ground until you look for them). You can even swap out the hat once you've gotten the 10% free damage boost.

                      212 discovery, 20 minutes of farming in Guest hall. Got one from the first one. Decided "you know, I'm feeling lucky" go on and decide to finish the run and got another. 2 on 1 run. Keep trying lads, you got this.

                        198.0 discovery. Probably took about 8-10 runs. I got very lucky. Keep killing these freaks boys, get yer dumplings.

                          The Guest Hall site of grace is a closer sog that is practically on top of them. Shortens your run while farming :)

                            I pray your rng isn’t as horrendous as mine; 300+ discovery, and it took over 150 kills. Not to mention, these things are straight out of my nightmares. Thanks, From.

                                After 1 hour of farming. I watched the white glow on the ground as I squirmed to death in the arms of one of them .(it was my first death to these creatures)

                                  I wish the effect was a bit stronger. Unlike the other damage boosting, status proc items, this has no ring equivalent. And it only works if the user was effected rather then anything nearby.

                                    love going to the comments section to see if something is any good and then looking on in horror as everyone talks about how it took them 8 hours to get it to drop haha god i love rng based drop mechanics (im guessing its not that good as getting stunned for a few seconds and losing most of your fp in exchange for 10% more damage for one minute doesnt sound like the best deal considering all the other damage buff sources)

                                          Can also drop from 3 enemies in Castle Sol wearing the helm, just down stairs from Commander Niall boss fight.

                                              So this page refers it as the enemy who wears it and it's not listed either on Volcano Manor and Castle Sol's page, I guess these enemies don't have a name

                                                Took me about 15 mins of farming with an arcane build. Just used mohgwyns sacred spear skill inside guest hall (valcano manor) 6 of them. Also used silver pickled fowl foots. Thank me later

                                                      Got this by pure accident. Was farming a second magma blade and aggro'd one of the little gremlins. Wouldn't let me teleport back to grace site, so I killed it. Then I got the helmet. Did not realize how lucky I got until looking at this page.

You could fast travel back but you lose the silver fowl foot buff if you do, requiring you to pop a new one every single time. Instead I opted to farm it from the Guest Hall grace in the same area. As soon as you exit the grace there is one of these enemies no more than 10 yards away. It takes all of five seconds to do a run this way. Much more time and resource efficient.

                                                                                So I tested it with both, incantations AND melee weapons. I didn't grant any bonus damage whatsoever, even with 80% of the madness bare filled.

                                                                                As long as there's no patch fix for this not worth the grind. Stay away from it!

                                                                                • Anonymous

                                                                                  Some observations (from what I could tell): It does boost magic attacks. It stacks with Flame Give Me Strength and Golden Vow. It only triggers after you have actually gone mad. Having madness ticks does nothing. After going mad, it seems like it boosts your damage for about 1.5 minutes. After that, you have to go mad again.

                                                                                  I obtained mine using the farming method described on this wiki, should anyone be curious. With silver scarab equipped, it only took about 15 minutes of farming with arcane of 17.

                                                                                    • Anonymous

The lower capital church grace is easiest to get there.

                                                                                      • Anonymous

I just picked it up (ironically I thought it was a guaranteed drop from the albinaurics in volcano manor since the first one I killed dropped it)

                                                                                        I wonder if it stacks with flame grant me strength and golden vow

The item description doesn't give them any official name, though.
