Nameless White Mask is a Humanoid Enemy Invader in Elden Ring. They are three separate NPC invaders that wear the War Surgeon Set, taking on the appearance of White Mask Varre. They focus on blood loss attacks, using a dagger as well as the Swarm of Flies incantation.

 

Of the surgeons that were abducted by the Lord of Blood, none were able to tame the accursed blood. None but Varre, that is; but he was an exception.

Where to Find Nameless White Mask:

  • All three Nameless White Mask NPC invaders are in the Mohgwyn Palace underground region. They can be found northwest of the Palace Approach Ledge-Road site of grace, in the blood-filled lake - See the image below for exact locations of these enemies - (Note - These enemies do not spawn instantly and will take around 10 seconds before they begin to load in).

Nameless White Mask Notes & Tips

  • The Nameless White Masks do not invade if player defeated the area boss Mohg, Lord of Blood.
  • Testing and players feedback show that defeating the southern Nameless White Mask (3) Elden Ring Interactive Map may reward player with the full War Surgeon Set without defeating the other two invasions at (1) and (2).
  • Attacks apply Hemorrhage, maintain your distance and dodge their attacks to ensure that the effect does not get built up all the way.
  • Tips for the Area - The Blistered Giant Crows and Blistered Strays are plentiful in this area - It is recommended to avoid attracting their attention by sneaking to each of the Nameless White Masks.
  • The boiling blood geysers dotted around the locale will deal damage to both you and any enemies that may pass through them - It is therefore possible to time these eruptions in order to stagger and chip away at your enemy without laying a single blow yourself.
  • The Nameless White Masks will remain defeated and do not need to all be killed in one attempt.
  • Spawn at Dynasty Mausoleum Entrance and follow the right wall until point (1). Then follow the left wall until you reach point (3). This is one of the easier paths to kill the southern invader for the War Surgeon Set and avoid detection from other enemies.
  • It can be defeated rather easily by triggering the invasion and then retreating to Dynasty Mausoleum Entrance. Sprint away as soon as it invades and hug the left cliff while returning to avoid enemies. Then climb the ruin stairs and walk up to the cliff. Wait for it to catch up to you and instead of using the stairs, it should be trying to cast magic from below. You can then attack him safely from above using Night Maiden's Mist or other ranged attacks.

      For those wondering who they are:
      Varre wasn't the only war surgeon during the Rupture...
      About their names being Nameless White Mask and why they lost their identities when they went insane during the war.
      Sweeps just didn't go crazy due to his faith in Mogh
      I would really love a DLC that sends us to the past so we can understand more about this amazing world that was created.

        I think it's supposed to be the same invader 3 times (possibly Varre? The armor mentions him) not 3 different invaders. That's the impression I had and after I got invaded the 3rd time straight I looked on here cuz I thought he might just keep invading as long as I stayed in that blood lake area. Was surprised to see the wiki assumes it's 3 different invaders. I mean, they have the same name, armor, weapons and moveset. Why would ppl assume that's anything but the same guy invading multiple times?

          for anyone else having trouble using hoarfrost, try golden slam instead. i found hoarfrost doesnt stagger as well, sometimes wont even hit. golden slam knocks him on his ass after one hit each time which gives you time to either rush in or run away. using talismans or consumables that raise resistance to hemmorhage or increase poise help a lot too. remember his ash of war is stationary after hitting you once so its easy to run away from

            I tried many suggestions here, but ultimately, I cheesed it. I'm not proud. I had him chase me along the edge of the cliff to the other side, and when he was close, I jumped off the cliff. Like an idiot, he followed me off the cliff and I got the set from him. I hope this helps someone not be as frustrated as I got trying to kill this menace :-P

              Easy method get is to that lovely bird to knock the one holding the gear of the edge, just run across the ledge then into land until Invader spawns, aggro the crow and bait the attack into the Invader, easy White Mask

                I was having a hard time fighting these guys since I was trying to rush a bleed build on a new character. The easiest way I found was to start from the Palace-Edge Road grace, go to where #3 spawns. Stay near the edge of the cliff, and when the invader attacks you there's a good chance he may just lunge and fall off the cliff and die.

                Maybe I got lucky but it worked for me on the first try. It might also work if you both fall off at the same time. But in my case I didn't have to fall off.

                  I got the outfit even though i defeated the others first. So the order in which to defeat them doesn't matter.

                    I only had to kill two to get the armor set and I did cheese on the last one because it was pissing me off

                      I had a lot of trouble with these NPC invaders at first, I've killed all three now though and I'm making this comment in case anyone else wants to try it. The blood-filled lake only allows spirit summons in part of it, once you pass the remains of the blistered crow half submerged you wont be able to summon, and that part of the lake is where the three invaders spawn.

                      I got an idea of where the boundary for summoning spirit ashes was then I cleared albinauarics that might interfere and marked it with rainbow stones so I'd know exactly where to run after triggering the invasion, and it worked on all three. As soon as I saw I was being invaded I sprinted back to the area I'd marked with the coloured stones and summoned omen killer rollo none of the NPCs could deal with rollo and myself hitting them from different directions.

                        I've read the page, and I don't usually cheese enemies but I really dislike these nameless white mask invaders. Anyone know of a foolproof way to make killing them easier?

                            I haven't managed to kill a single one of these yet. The bleed these NPCs can inflict is on another level. Its not the dying that bothers me, it isn't fun either though. What I don't like is how quick they can kill me.

                              Killed Mohg because I went to Moghwyn through Varre's quest and didn't even know these guys existed. Oh well, in NG+ I guess.

                              • Oh yeah, and a little trick with NPCs, putting shield crash on any greatshield will repeatedly throw them back and they're too stupid to dodge it most of the time. Palisade, briar, and fingerprint stone shield works best because of the status effects but just about any greatshield should do the trick.

                                  “it should be trying to cast magic from below…” Yeah. Uh. Mine chased me up both stairs. Down the cliff. Over and over like we were playing tag.
                                  Safest place to cheese it is up the first steps- head straight to the wall. Jump on it and move to the corner to the right. You should have rubble between you and him. You can mist him from there but you’ll get a couple spells that land on you from here so have your health potions ready.

                                    So I kamikazed myself off a cliff and the first one followed…didn’t get anything from him dying…do I have to land the killing blow to get the stuff?

                                        Defeating the 1st didn't drop anything (I was a tad concerned). He is also nearly impossible to get past before getting to the 3rd. Upon defeating the 3rd, he dropped the whole set. This was before reaching the 2nd also.

                                          So I'm not 100% sure on this but i used jumping on the cliffs above from the mausoleum grace to bypass the spot where the first one spawns in, and now none of them spawn, seemingly permanently. Mohg is alive

                                                    Cheesed the last one (behind the tree in the corner) because he was giving me too much trouble on my ranged build. Lured him back to the Dynasty Mausoleum Entrance grace and ranged him from above. He followed me up the steps a few times but after I got enough distance he stayed under the cliff.

                                                            (A small tip) you can still lure all those birds falling down the cliff ,even after you drop down to the lake..
                                                            Before jumping down to the lake look to your left and you can jump at the top of the ravine (with Torrent ofc) or the faster way is start jumping next to a tree after the albinaurics from the site of grace (the 1st method is safer and makes you easierto go back up faster later on when luring the enemiies ) start sniping when you can see a clff right below you
                                                            With all 3 birds dead makes dealing with it way easier ..use greatbow for luring the bird ..ill reCommend using radahn spear with that because of the hitbox and dmg)
                                                            Note:you can’t snipe the one hanging on top of a ledge but you can aggro him and go back at the ravine when he’s following you

                                                              • Went to 3 on the map above using torrent and killing nothing, invader showed up, quit and reloaded the game, invader showed up again but none of the other enemies had aggro. Got the full set without killing any other invader here.
                                                                Good luck!

I only killed him and the full set dropped. letting me avoid the other 2 spawns, and the horn bastards that spawn the ghost giants.

Note stated “These enemies do not spawn instantly and will take around 10 seconds before they begin to load in” am I doing something wrong?

All I did was get close to the edge where the bird falls off and kept rolling around near it until he rolled to avoid a throwing knife and rolled right off the edge....

He has trouble making his away around it to get to you and he can't spam his annoying flies spell because it just goes right into the tree. Meanwhile your hoarfrost stomps should go right through the tree to him. Just keep the tree between you and him and it should he an easy win.

When they get close and try to attack, roll off the cliff. If they lunge far enough they’ll fall with you. You’ll both die but you’ll also defeat them and gain their loot.

                                                                                                • These enemies will stop spawning after you reach some kind of checkpoint in the game. Not sure what it is though. I came here to get the armor set on a character that has beaten Mohg and burned the Erdtree. On a character that has done neither, they appear. It is best advised to kill these enemies before doing either of those things.

I think he's the only one that drops it. I haven't fought either of the other spawn locations yet.

                                                                                                    • Anonymous

It's the one at the southwest cliff edge. There is a single giant crow there, but if you spawn at palace approach, you can tag the crow with an arrow (while closer to the bald dudes) and he will run into the gorge trying to get to you. Once you then get over to that cliff area you should have ample space to 1 v 1 the guy.

The spell they use does little damage outside of the bleed proc and you can power through it with a jump attack, so getting hits can be pretty easy. I had to kill all 3 to get the set. The one that dropped it was the one in the blood lake, behind some trees.

Nothing works because if I try to get to a place where the invaders can't hit me I get instagibbed by giant blood crows who I also cannot defeat

The one that dropped the armour was the farthest one west, behind the trees by the cliff.
