"Crown of the Old Iron King who once ruled this land.
The King sunk below the scorching iron, met the one whose name must never be repeated, and became Ichorous Earth.
But these were events of long ago, and today, no one even remembers the King's name."

Notes

  • Upgraded with Twinkling Titanite.
  • Upgraded physical defenses are only 25% higher.
  • Vendrick in Memory of the King will react with a new set of dialogues to this and the other two crowns.
  • When worn after receiving Vendrick's Blessing, it will prevent hollowing after death, and completely protect from curse buildup. This effect only works in current playthrough.
  • Every two minutes the Crown is worn, 20% (rounded up) of maximum spell uses will be restored.
    • "Rounded up" means that, at the very least, the minimum number of spell casts restored will be 1. For example, if you cast a spell that only has 1 cast total, that 1 use will be restored within 2 minutes, despite the helm only restoring 20% of casts.

      Ok, now I undestand why my I hear a ,agic sound and my character glowimg every 2 minutes or so while I'm sitting at the bonfire while using my new reward after defeating Fume Knight.

        This thing is amazing. With the Northwarder set, it basically lets you keep up Sunlight Blade indefinitely.

          this has my favorite special effect of any equipment piece in all of the fromsoft games, was it too much to give us more stuff to make mage builds renewable in a viable way in later games?

          • Anonymous

            Since I mostly do melee focused characters, I tend to overlook mage related gear. So I wish I knew beforehand about the effects of this amazing crown to get it earlier into my caster playtrought. Great specially for pyromancers and miracle casters in PvE who suffer from low casts per spell and wear themselves out by the time they reach a boss. Hexer and Saint hoods are also great options for casters.

              I read from somewhere that the giant dudes with greathammers in the dlc you get this from become passive when you wear this, but I can't confirm this. Worth looking into if you beat the dlc and have the time

                If u have 10 soul spears slotted with 4 casts each you will replenish 10 casts every 2 minutes 1 for each spell slotted

                  Breakdown of best PvE caster helms:

                  -Crown of the Old Iron King, best quality of life pretty much eliminating the need to ever use items to replenish spell uses. On the other hand, you can also just use an item to replenish uses and use a different helm instead. Because of how the replenishment works, it works best with low use spells like souls spear, as it replenishes more than 20%, multiplied by however many copies you have equipped. In other words this helm synergizes well with a build that attunes many low-use spells.

                  -Black hood: 11% cast speed and +4 stats. Great overall. For reference all other armor pieces that increase cast speed only increase it by 5%, so great value. Clear Bluestone ring +2 increases it by 40%.

                  -Domino Mask: small spell damage increase (not just magic damage) at the cost of 10% health. This could be the difference between 2-shotting and 3-shotting something. Can't go wrong with this either.

                    If you have 12 total casts (4 scrolls attuned times 3 casts per scroll), will the effect replenish 2.4 casts rounded up (3 casts) or 2.4 rounded down (2 casts)? Or yet, the minimum of 1 cast times 4 scrolls (replenishing 4 casts)? I'm asking because there seems to be conflicting information going around, so can anyone confirm? By the way, i'm talking Scholar of the First Sin.

                    • Anonymous

                      In Scholar of the First Sin, this only affects total casts and does not count by slots used. I.E., if you have 2 great heal excerpts, both with 2 casts each, you will only get 1 per restore, as it is counting 20% of 4 rather than 20% of 1 twice

                        Insanely powerful on faith casting builds - no need to run duplicate copies of any spells! At 50 attunement and 50 faith I'm running sunlight spear, great lightning spear, sunlight blade, denial, and great heal. The crown restores a charge to sunlight blade and denial before they run out... meaning perm uptime on both buffs! Ensure you always fire off a cast of each spear so you take advantage of the crown recharge. Also, never be afraid to just "top off" your HP with great heal even if it's only a small portion of damage.

                          The spell regeneration effect (along with Vendrick's blessing, if you have it) continues to function even if the crown is broken.

                            This mf really met voldemort then found an item duping glitch which turned him into a demon, dark souls lore is insane

                              If you wore this crown for NG+, would you be able to play a pure caster on a run where you didn't ever rest at bonfires to get the ring that makes your weapon invisible?

                                op. Get 2 great heals and you practically have infinite healing. Not to mention that Repair is also really good with this.

                                • Anonymous

                                  This is worth mentioning that 20% (rounded up) is replenished for each spell scroll of the same type and not for the total casts. For example, if you equip 5 spells with a single cast per spell, in two minutes the crow n will replenish from 0 to 5, and not from 0 to 1.

                                    This is probably the single most useful item for a no bonfire run. Second playthrough of course. Equip repair and a healing spell or two and you're set with a melee build. Do the same and equip whatever spells you want as a caster. The replenish very quickly if you have a decent amount of them. There's no need for sitting at a bonfire to repair, refill healing, or refill casts. It is so much easier.

                                      not sure about the problems, it works when hollow, it works in a menu, and it restores 20%/+1 depending on which one is bigger, Really love it in pve for my faith character
