      This long tongued imp head was my white f**king whale. I can't begin to estimate how many times I killed that imp opposite the underground roadside grace between the first and last kill when it dropped for me.

        I'm not trying to make out like I'm some sort of mathematical genius I'm only asking out of curiosity. But doesn't the 'random' in RNG make boosting your discovery hoping to get a rare weapon drop pointless and futile?

        • Anonymous

          interesting fact: if you are farming this item with an arcane build like i am, (45 arc) you dont need to respec your character, simply put on a commoner garb, marika's scarseal, 2 finger heirloom and haligtree knight helm. (assuming 9 faith: +1,+5,+5,+2 fth) = 22 fth and use a dragon communion seal +10 to 2 shot the imp. took me 30 to 40 mins but i was down to my second to last larval tear so yeah.

          • Anonymous

            Dropped. At discovery 109 plus x1 silver fowl foot. Dropped within a min in Sub Shunning grounds. Might buy a lottery ticket if my luck is so good.

            • Anonymous

              It isnt much, but dont forget you to wear your Silver Tear Mask and Marika's soreseal for that extra discovery!

              • Anonymous

                I'll never understand making item drop rates low as 0.5%. I get it being rare but like you could have max arcane with a silver scarab and silver foot and you still wouldn't even have like a 20% chance to find it

                • Anonymous

                  Absolutely, without fail, use the frenzied burst method. Do not do this another way. Do not waste your life jumping on pipes like you're some kind of Italian plumber. 22 Faith and 99 arcane, folks. Accept no substitutes.

                  • If there werent' videos of this, i'd think this isn't even farmable in underground leyndell. spent already 2-3 hours, got probably a ten of hactchets and a ten of smith.st.(5), discovery about 240

                      Holy **** i spent HOURS farming at the wyndham ruins for the fanged demon imp head, i come here for the last imp head i was missing:get it on my third run. Thank you elden ring

                        I waited until NG+3 to go for this helm, and had to use a respec to dump all my Vigor, Mind, and Endurance into Faith, Intelligence, Strength, and Dex, and run through Hyetta's quest to get a second Frenzied Flame Seal to double up on that damage bonus, in order to kill the imp in one hit from Frenzied Burst without using other spells. I recommend you don't wait until NG+3 to try to get this item.

                          when using the frenzied burst method, i recommend waiting until the imp's death animation is basically over before resting at the site of grace again (to avoid accidentally missing the drop by resting too soon).
                          also, although the helmet is a purple drop, i found the colour indistinguishable at that distance (standing at the grace) so don't skip picking up "white" drops like i almost did.

                            The Frenzied Burst Method is the best. Took me 30 minutes for the Imp Head to appear. Sadly, I was too quick on my button and rested at grace as that gorgeous purple light disappeared... Took another 42 to get another.

                              I've found that pretty consistently, equipping this item causes a hard CTD for me (on PC)

                              Curious if anyone else has had this issue, when I select the helm the menu recognizes that input but my character model doesn't change, then the game immediately freezes and crashes.

                                You can farm this very quickly by never even walking away from the grace. Use Frenzied Burst (You can use talismans and gear to meet the requirements) and you can literally two shot the mask-wearing imp by standing on the west side of the grace. I think it took me well over 100 attempts, but it went by very quickly.
                                Rest ->
                                shoot ->
                                wait 1.5 seconds for the imp to start running toward you (to make it easier to see if it drops something and to make your run to it faster if it does) ->
                                shoot again ->
                                wait .5 seconds to see if it drops ->
                                repeat

                                all without taking a single step. Hope this helps!

                                  I spent over 2 hours killing the imps near Underground Roadside and I wasn't even farming for the helm, I just wanted to reach the catacombs and those giant lobsters rekt me harder than the dual Crucible Knights

                                    It is about luck i guess, just like once i got 4 rune arcs in a row with rats and never again they dropped... The uncommon/rare drops are actually hard to come by, or just rather pop-up randomly... Got the mask after killing 70~80, went to reexplore the place and it casually dropped again after the 4th imp.

                                      96 kills from the first Imp at the Underground Roadside grace with 324 discovery. Seems like the drop rate is about 1%. Don't give up!

                                        After three separate 1 1/2 hour sessions, imp heads suck to collect lol. Still have yet to find one. I got one drop I missed out on by getting knocked off a pipe early into my first grind session but I don't know if that was it anyways. Still killed a few hundred of these specific imps, let alone others I've done the grind on... now in NG+1. 270 discovery. End my misery and hopefully buff drop rate please someday fromsoft ):

                                          I've naturally collected all these so far just by playing the game. Doing all the catacombs, ect. This might be the only one I might have to farm

                                            So I've run this route dozens of times, probably around 50 times now, killing 5 of them each time, and haven't got the helmet even once. The drop rate must be abysmally low.

                                              Luck the farm is easy. I just open a broadcast and pay 10% attention to the actual farm, got it in 1hr30min for 274 discovery.

                                                For people with Str/Dex builds farming this, using the Bolt of Gransax makes the runs a breeze. Since Bolt of Gransax scales with both Str and Dex this is an excellent choice! Plus you do not need to target anything else other than the tongue mask Imps. You can literally stand on the topmost pipe and snipe em all. The Imp's are incredibly weak to lightning damage and if you use a lightning scorpion charm talisman and charge up the special attack it completely oneshots the imps! The runs take around 40-50 secs each it's super chill !

                                                • It was fun to farm this, love how all the stuff(mostly) have a pretty low drop rate, gives me something to do that's not so "**** YOU DIE" lmao

                                                        Be me, spend 1 hour farming, finally get it to drop purple item and all, jump towards pipe, miss pipe, die, try not to cry, cry

                                                        • For anyone farming: You can fight 5 of the long-tongued imps in a row: (1) south of Underground Roadside, kill the one on the bridge; (2) drop off the bridge to the right and kill the one walking along the pipe; (3) kill the two that drop from hanging above; (4) approach the big platform to the south just enough to aggro the one behind the crates (can do so without stirring up the cat-headed ones). I did this about a dozen times before the first one on the bridge dropped the head. 274 discovery. Tried it again while writing this to confirm these directions and, sure enough, the fifth one on the big wooden platform dropped another head

                                                            Really quick way to farm this:
                                                            If you rest at the Underground Roadside and take a step or two to your right while facing the door, you can actually lock onto the imp standing on the rusted pipe. Blast it with a Frenzied Burst or two and bam, it's dead, and you can rest without having to move more than a few paces from Grace. This eliminates needing to run back and forth constantly. When the drop rate for this is so low, this can make things go by a lot quicker. And it probably goes without saying, but equipping talismans and headpieces that boost Arcane while also using a Silver-Pickled Fowl Foot helps too.

                                                              Fun farm. Less annoying platforming than the Envoy's Greathorn in Haligtree, and no damn ants to get in the way... Took maybe half an hour to an hour to drop. After trying a few routes, I boiled it down to the following:

                                                              Starting at Underground Roadside grace... sprint across the road (you can target lock first Imp from spawn)... judo chop first Imp to death and then drop off the pipe to your right... turn around and dragon breath the Imp walking up the pipe towards you (from the NE), then dragon breath the Imp hanging above him... run down the pipe to the left and wait for a fourth Imp to drop off the pipe from the darkness above. Killing this guy ends the route in a corner (each run takes ~30-45 seconds) and lets you reset to the grace immediately, whereas other routes I often had Imps aggro'd off in the distance and had to either track them down or run away and wait to reset. This route also has the benefit of only including 4 imps, all of this particular helmet type. Happy hunting! :) <3 Ja

                                                                I got this randomly my first time in the area, forgot until now and came here to see what the stat boost was... 12 arcane and no boosts. Guess I won the lottery?

Terrible drop right from what I'm seeing. So I wish you guys luck. Did this at Underground Roadside Grace.

                                                                  • Anonymous

                                                                    • Anonymous

If item discovery works as a multiplier (3.24 in this case) the drop rate for this would be about 0.0018%, which is over 200 times rarer than the notoriously elusive covenant items in dark souls 3. This has an absurd drop rate and I'd advise you to respec to maximum arcane, wear all item discovery boosters and prepare nerves of steel if you really wish to farm for it.

                                                                      • Anonymous

This thing must have the smallest possible drop rate, because I have killed at least 400-500 at this point.

                                                                        • Droprate seems super low, if you have the right loadout you can sit at the Underground Roadside grace site and snipe the visable through two doorways and then immediately sit back down and refresh if he doesn't drop anything. You can also enter that big pipe room and snipe the several scattered throughout the area, just know they'll likely fall into the lobster pit below. The helmet is the only purple drop they have so watch for that. Best of luck
