      I spent all day at work thinking about the ocean man technique, so I decided to try it. 107 discovery, set a timer, and got the drop within 23 seconds. 23 seconds… I died laughing, I don’t think I’ve laughed that hard in a while.

        I assumed this helm was a joke based on all the Ocean Man comments.

        So I went to the octopus site by Alexander's first spawn, put on my item discovery stuff(242 discover), put on Ocean Man, and started farming.

        Got the helm from a small one on my second run..

        Ocean Man, lead me to the land indeed

          man what kind of magic is this ocean man
          I just got 1 drop after 2 minutes with this method

            My first run through Siofra River looking for the helm yielded nothing. However, once I played Ocean Man I was able to find the helmet right before the song ended! Listening to Ocean Man confirmed for legit farming strat

              It's a decent helm for a mage looking to cosplay an Oolacile sorcerer. I'm currently looking farming one myself. Best of luck with the drop rate, though.

                can confirm ocean man works, started it near the end of a temple quarter run and decided to move to saints bridge, one wave of gold later and i picked it up.

                  Nothing for 15 runs. Put Ocean Man on loop, got my tentacle helm the following try. Finished the cycle anyway and got a second one.

                      Put on one hour loop of Ocean Man, hopped up to the pond above Saintsbridge. 3 minutes 43 seconds later (3rd clear), I had one.

                          An octopus whelp? That's another name for puppy! I am delighted to know that they're called octopus puppies, you can guess what that'd make their mothers called

                            I didn't believe this helm was real, I thought the devs were trolling players like they did with the pendant in the first dark souls. I've never seen a white or red shadow of another player wearing one and I've never seen one in coop.

                            I was farming pinion feathers along the edge of the cliff and on the beach west of the church of Elleh. Before I fast travel back to the grace at the end of each run I kill the giant octopus and land octopus on the beach for the crafting ingredients they drop as well.

                            I'm not exaggerating in saying I've easily killed over a thousand of the smaller ones whenever they are near me or in my way, they don''t hit hard but they can interrupt any casting and they can be a pain in the arse, so I kill them with a bow whenever they are in my way.

                            The point is none of those I've killed during my playthrough dropped the octopus head helm. Until last night, one dropped it for me on the beach at Limgrave. It looks a bit odd, it has no hidden passive effect to make it stand out, and its stats as a helm are not that great but I'm wearing it anyway. I'm quite happy to have one.

                              Was farming for this for 2 hours at saints Bridge and decided to test if playing ocean man helps and can confirm that I then proceeded to get it instantly. 269 discovery

                                  Can confirm playing Ocean Man does help. Took about 7 runs at the saintsbridge area. Took me several hours to farm imp heads. Guess this is my karma.

                                        3 can be found on a small rock area south of seaside ruins in limgrave for an early farm, I got mine here so I can confirm it drops in this location.

                                            seeing as how rare this is it would be if the larger ones ignored you if you wore the little one on your head.
                                            not complaining, just think it would be a neat hidden mechanic.
                                            also car we get a rune bear head helm? that would be cool too.

                                              In the hidden path to the Haligtree, killing all the little Octopus dudes, I got 2 of them in one site of grace sitting...

                                              I was an Arcane Build with 80 Arcane and a Silver Scarab equipped, but still... I feel so happy.
                                              Now time to sell one of them.

                                                    Siofra River. Open the map and you see a capital letter F made by the bridge above. There's about 20+ Land Octopus between the fork part of the F. Clear them with Sacred Relic Sword.

                                                        Does this helm actually reduce strike damage as the discription suggests? "Those who can withstand the smell will find its organic elasticity excellent for negating strikes."

                                                        Has anyone tested strike reduction?

                                                          I farmed the big and small variants near the Temple Quarter grace until I had nearly 300 ovaries with no drop. Tried the Hidden Path to the Haligtree and got it within 5 tries. Not sure if it’s just a much higher drop rate with these two or if I’m unlucky, but something to keep in mind if you’re trying to get this piece.

That anon must have hit a hidden small one), octopodes not on the beach can drop it despite the current description (confirmed at pond south of Saintsbridge/Deathtouched Catacombs), and the drop rate is ~2%.
