      I know it's small but it should really be catlike dexterity rather than intelligence with all the glintstone crowns and stuff

        Does anyone know if this helmet is worth using on a mage build? the other mage helms come at a cost and this one is just a flat +2

        • Anonymous

          600+ imps till it dropped. 400 probably in Impaler, and the last 200ish in Murkwater. I know at least the 400 from Impaler because I now have over 200 Violets when I didn't before today.

          For a mage, Impaler sucks because it's a long path down the stairs and back for 2. Murkwater gets you three in a quick burst then a reset. My discovery is only 109 so I knew I was in for the long haul. But it's done...on this character...

            +1 for Murkwater drop. Got it off like the 3rd imp by the entrance my first time there (no boosters). Didnt know how rare it was till i looked it up. Normally im the guy farming something for 10+ hours that everyone else gets on their first try so this reversal of luck was nice

            • In my experience the Murkwater catacombs worked best for us farming them.
              Both myself and my wife had multiple ones of these from a single run through.
              Her arcane was 20 and mine was 18 and we both used the silver toed thingys to increase our find rate.
              spend about an hour in impalers and never got a drop.

                After 3 hours of farming it finally dropped, when an imp fell down from the stairs. You can only reach that with a bug it seems so I didn't get it.

                  After 4 hours, I have 300k runes, about 40 smithing stone 1 and 20 of those french fry forks they call weapon. AND ZERO IMP HEAD!!

                  I am sorry, but the drop rates in this game completely drained the fun I had playing this game.

                    Tempted to farm a bunch of these and invade ppl wearing nothing but his helm, named Catboy, drop a cat head, and leave

                      Huh. Didn't know this was a rare drop. I think the Murkwater Catacombs boss dropped it for me, but I can't remember for sure. I do know that I've been wearing it since I got it because 1) it's a cat's head and looks awesome and 2) gives me better defense than any other helm I have. Thanks to what else I'm wearing, I can wear this without fat rolling despite the equip weight.

                        I'm not sure the info about these imp helms is 100% accurate. I know this is anecdotal, I have no way to prove what I'm saying but the location for the wolf imp head is given as being the minor erdtree catacomb in caelid, but I have the imp wolf helm and I've never set foot in the minor erdtree catacomb once. I can't be bothered with any of the dungeons that have poison or rot water to deal with as well as the enemies, and there's no two ways about it, I am 100% sure. I'm not as sure about the imp cat head as I am the wolf, in all honesty it is possible I'm getting it mixed up with the imp corpse head helm, I got them both in the same session, but I do know I don't farm for sh*t except runes to level up a bit early game, and I feel like all the imp heads I've stumbled across were looted from a corpse not a drop from an enemy. I'm hoping there will be someone reading this page for the imp head cat helm who can maybe confirm some of this, particularly getting the wolf head in a different catacomb than minor erdtree in caelid.

                              I've got so many bloody forks I'm about to open a B&B and call it the imp-aler. Still no head to mount on the wall.

                                Just got mine. They drop from the imps in Impaler's Catacombs, Murkwater Catacombs, and Stormfoot Catacombs. I found Murkwater catacombs to be the easiest. I recommend a fast weapon with a ranged weapon art that can one-shot with R1s and the WA, and allows you to cast the WA at least 4 times (pref 5 or 6 since the imps are wiggly af and sometimes dodge your WA). For this I used the Highland Axe with Beast's Roar. Run into the entrance of the first room, pop the two on the ceiling, and a third immediately to your left. If you're using a fowl foot, return to the site of grace and repeat. If you're not, continue forward to just before the pressure plate. Use your WA to kill the next two and then run into the room, killing the imp that ambushes you for six total, then fast travel back to the site of grace. If you're running on a HDD or otherwise have long load times you may want to just rest at the SoG after the first room, pickled foot or no.

                                  Picked this up off a drop in murkwater cave about 2 hours into playing. Luck of the bandit build. 100+ hours later still rocking this cat head.

                                    I managed to farm about 50k souls trying to net myself this hat in the first little dungeon. Don't give up, eventually Miyazaki will take pity on you and you'll get it.

                                        RNGesus blessed me with the drop!!! ...then I saw the body ragdoll off the side and into the unreachable pit in impalers catacomb. Safe to say, I just gave up for now lol

                                          Best place to farm them is stormfoot catacombs, every enemy has a chance to drop them. I used swift glintstone shard because it oneshotted them full clearing the rooms in order
                                          Marais mask+marika soreseal (I've got a very embarassing 15 arcane like this) + silver scarab (i'm farming all sets before ng+) + silver pickled fowl foot for a total of 241 discovery
                                          go down, 2 imps in the first room, back and to the left and to the left again, shoot the two on the ledges, next room shoot the one behind, take the first corridoor on the right and shoot the 6 hanging behind the pillar, then back, take the ladder to the left, kill the two posing as statues, forward and kill the one you see and the one ambushing from the right. go back and jump off two floors and back up the stairs to the grace.
                                          If you're out of buff you can just warp. I got 3 in a run, 0 in the other 4 runs.

                                                I had 192 discovery. I've completed any dungeon and never got this one.

                                                  The Imp Head (Cat) is rated as a Rare drop. With 10 levels in arcane the drop rate is <1%. May the RNG gods be with you... always.

Based on my timing it was fastest to just kill all imps in the place (but I could one shot them, so that may be a factor). Thanks to the "item dropped" effect it's obvious when something drops, but it is usually a forked hatchet. However, you will _know_ when this drops because it will drop as a rare item (they have a bigger "item aura")

                                                                  • Anonymous

Been trying to get this thing back with silver foot charms but nothing. Ive gotten around 8 forked hatchets. and tried 3 diferent areas Lol

If you have the godrick rune, activate the rune arc to have the additional stats to arcane for the time that you farm (chances are you wont be dying during it).

Is the drop rate really just that **** or is it incorrect?
