|Mask of the Father|
- Has a one in three chance of dropping from the Pinwheel boss fight at the end of The Catacombs.
- Rare drop from the lesser Pinwheel enemies in front of Gravelord Nito's tomb.
- Sold by Patches (after he becomes a vendor in Firelink Shrine) for 8,000 souls.
The Mask of the Father increases maximum equipment burden by 5% (15% pre-patch 1.06). On the other hand, it offers negligible defense and cannot be upgraded.
The Mask of the Father's burden increase ability stacks with those of other items, Havel's Ring (+50% equip burden) and the Ring of Favor and Protection (+20% equip burden). The effects compound with each other, rather than simple addition. This can make for a very potent armor combination, whilst moving at a rapid rate even with heavy weapons. This is often employed as a strategy for characters with high Endurance to achieve immense Poise while still moving quickly.
Cannot be reinforced.
