Hollow Skin

hollow skin

In-Game Description

A hood imitating the head of a Hollow.
Provides curse resistance, and makes
it easier to detect messages from other worlds.

Finely crafted to perfectly imitate the head
of a Hollow, only without the abhorrent stench.
Whoever created this was surely deeply
respectful of those lost to hollowing.

Availability

Brume Tower treasure. From the Upper Floor bonfire, head to the main room with the moving platforms.
Head left and take the elevator that is set into the wall. There is an illusory wall part way up.
It will be in a metal chest behind some water urns. Video Strategy: http://youtu.be/1Nu4_filqrA
