      Ok I hate all of you. I farmed for about an hour with no luck. I decided to put ocean man on out of desperation... The head dropped right as the song was ending. I had every intention on coming back here to tell you how stupid and unhelpful all of these comments were. Guess I should be saying thank you...

        If anyone's able to edit the page, there is another farming spot for this just north-east from the Church of Plague grace. It takes 5 seconds to ride there with torrent and there's 9 small Octopuses and 1 large one. Good luck to the completionists trying to farm this, it's a *****.

            Fastest way to get to the lake south of Saintsbridge is to start at the grace there, doublejump on Torrent into the Spiritspring (immediately east by southeast from grace, between the cliff and the bridge statue), aim at the flower, jump back up. You're there!

              The power of the Ocean Man technique is not to be denied. Killed two Octopuses; nothing. Remembered, 'Oh yeah, Ocean Man'. Pressed play. Killed another Octopus. Drops the head. 138 Discovery.

                i played ocean man in my head and suddenly hundreds of them dropped
                my mom entered the room, wearing said helmet
                my dad followed suit and he had turned into a giant octopus
                he spoke to me in a deeply disturbing voice, "my dearest son, thou hast been trolled by the webfolks. The gods have been angered widst thy actions. You must relinquish thy ambitions, lest we all become one with the helm as punishment."
                I woke up, drenched in my own sweat, still sitting on front of my screen. no helmet in inventory and nothing on the ground..

                The ocean man method is ****ing useless

                  Im another anon extolling the ocean man ways. It really works, I spent 3 hours yesterday trying to get the helm through the Saintsbridge method, then today I got it on the first run at 1:03 of the 10 hour version. Only 210 Discovery!

                            Tried to get this thing by playing "ocean man", no success after more or less one hour of nonstop killing hundreds of these creatures from the alexander site of grace. Way later on the playthrough, got it randomly dropped at siofra river while passing by and killing everything in my path, did not even realise i had killed one of these octopus until i saw the drop. So ye, its just RNG - raw RNG, and a circus down here - facepalm fr...

                              it worked for me. Siofra river. I did three or four runs of killing those guys last week, didnt get anything, despite my ARC into the 70's with the silver tear helm and eating some pickled fowl feet. Tonight, i was about to start again, and decided to get ocean man going. I didnt even finish killing all of them in the first run and it dropped partway through.
                              for the uneducated, "Ocean Man" is a song by the eclectic band known as Ween. it's the weirdest, most enjoyable music to come out of the 90's, up there with Primus and Mr. Bungle.
                              Here's to Ocean Man, the song to play to farm for the Octopus Head

                                i have never ever had the luck of getting one of these as a drop in 4 playthroughs. literally the first try after playing OCEAN MAN did it for me. i was shooked, but i guess it's just ocean man

                                  To add a lil spice to my farming sessions, I've been running a stopwatch to see how long it takes to grind everything. And coming to the Octopus Head, of course I HAD to try the Ocean Man method in addition to my timer. I listened to just 12 minutes and 27 seconds of Ocean Man before getting my drop, and all I gotta say is OCEAN MAN, TAKE ME BY THE HAND, LEAD ME TO THE LAND THAT YOU UNDERSTAND

                                    I’ve heard the helm itself is a rare drop but I never actually paid attention
                                    And this morning I accidentally smacked an octopus and that dude dropped it

                                            I don't know if i hate or love the "Ocean Man" Method... I was farming it at the Saints Bridge for like 2 Hours. Looked up the Drop Chance and almost despaired. Looked at the Comments and seen the Ocean Man Meme. Put it on youtube on repeat and got it on the secound start of the Song... I'm just blown away.

                                                I seriously don't know if this Ocean Man method is a community-joke, but tried to farm the head near Siofra River Bank site of grace at 198 discovery while listening to the song, and... damn, it really dropped first try. I then made another atempt and it dropped again! If I only knew about this when I was farming this piece near Alexander by normal means, the farm took about two hours back then.

                                                  Don't know if anyone mentioned it, but you can farm three land octopuses that are very close to and exactly south from the Seaside Ruins site of grace, just a five seconds horseback ride away. This is the closest farming spot to the First Step and so is accessible at the very start of the game. This is also better method due to the fact that there are no other enemies besides the little trio that won't let you check the map for fast travel because of the aggro.

                                                  Btw I tried to farm the head there and I had to kill all octopuses roughly 120 times at base discovery (110) before the drop. It could be worse, though

                                                    I found out about the Ocean Man method yester day when i first saw this weird head gear. I though i was gonna have to hunt these guys to extinction if id ever farm for one and the Ocean Man just a silly meme, but just now i happened upon a group and hummed Ocean Man to my self whilst whacking em. Lo and behold i got it! No buffs, no nothing. I was just passing though on other business. Why pray to RNGesus when you can summon Ocean Man.

They say play ocean man, I’m thinking it’s just superstition. But after a lot of farming I was willing to try anything. I started listening to ocean man figuring bottom line it will make the farming more pleasing. Just to then get it on my first lap of farming after playing the song.... Thank you for this experience.

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.
