Type Head Armor

The Black Hood is a head armor piece in Dark Souls II. Part of the Black Set.

In-Game Description

A black hood. Grants slight increase to spellcasting speed. Belonged to Straid of Olaphis.
Straid was invited to the old kingdom of Olaphis for his wisdom, but its depth was such that people soon feared him, and in the end Straid was led into a dreadful trap.
Effect: Improves casting speed

AvailabilityEdit

This, along with the full set, is obtained by talking to Straid after trading 4 boss souls.

CharacteristicsEdit

A useful armor piece for players fond of spellcasting, the Black Hood increases the player's total cast speed by seven points. However, it also has a hidden effect of boosting the player's effective Intelligence and Faith by two points whilst worn, allowing the player to invest fewer levels in either magic stat in order to cast spells.
