Lion Warrior Helm is a Helm in Dark Souls 2.
Lion Warrior Helm
|Requirements & Bonus|
Helm worn by Lion Clan warriors.
The Lion Clan are an offshoot race that have no ties to humans, and would murder anyone with the curious notion of approaching them.
The lion clansmen seem to despise their own looks, as they hate being seen.
- All pieces seem to have a chance to drop off of any lion warrior in the Shaded Ruins area, except the helm that only drops off of the Golden Braided Lion Warrior.
- Part of the Lion Warrior Set.
- All pieces of this set reduce falling damage (The amount reduced is less than the Silvercat Ring).
- Pieces effect stacks together, so having the whole set will benefit for more reduced falling damage.
- All pieces can be acquired in regular NG, though the helm is rare, and is only dropped by the Golden Braided Lion Warrior.
- Upgraded with Titanite.

it reduces falldamage like all lion warrior parts.
Got it today (SOTFS 25/04/2022) on the 24th attempt. I saw 5 Red Lion Warrior Capes and numerous other pieces before having the helm drop. If you're trying to do this farm now I highly recommend putting steam into offline mode first because if you're online while the servers are off you will be forced to wait 30 seconds every time the game opens.
I was using Traveling Merchant Hat + Prisoner's Tatters + Watchdragon Parma + Covetous Gold Serpent Ring +2 + Rusted Coin (i'm before where you get the Jester hat on this character, I'm assuming that has better discovery than the Traveling Merchant Hat) and even then I was still sometimes getting no drop at all. Best farming strategy I've found was to just go up to the ruin area, clear out the other lions one by one and just save+quit there, then copy that save and put it somewhere. Open your DS2 saves directory where the current save is and after every attempt just Alt+F4, open the taskmanager and close the game's process in there (it won't close very quickly after an Alt+F4 on its own), replace the save in the directory with the one you backed up, boot the game back up, click through the popups to Continue, pop the Rusted Coin and do this over and over until RNG blesses you with whatever piece you fancy (the helm and red cape are the only things the Gold Lion Warrior drops that the others don't). Since the Gold Lion can only drop one item at a time if you want both of its unique pieces you will have to have at least 1 Bonfire Ascetic (2 if you killed him on NG before realizing he has actually has unique drops).
Good luck all.
Got this first try and wasn't even farming for it
Instead of using an Ascetic I suggest you kill him, see what He drops and as soon as you see it's not his headpiece or red cape, close your game immediately. It worked for me on my PS4 and I recommend you do this with other items (Heide Greatlance, Insolent and Monastery Set) as well. Sure it takes some time but it's better than having to kill the Boss over and over again.
sucks that you cant just wear one of these things heads like vengarls helmet cuz dam that mane looks cool
What you can do is use the watchdragon parma, jester hat, and hollow tatters, back up your save, pop a rusted coin and kill the gold boi. If he doesn't drop it, reload your save and try again. Takes a while but fashion souls is always worth it.
about 25% as effective as silvercat ring. Equip all item find gear and use coin before killing the gold lion warrior!!! Fashion wise it is very visible if your character happens to have a bright yellow face...
When you spend 17 ascetics getting this helm and end up not liking it....
For those who doubt about it this item is still in the game, I just got it today at the first try. Using a coin, serpent Ring and that shield you got after defeating the drake in heide. Sotfs version
Item can still be acquired on 29/8/2019
Making an enemy that only spawns once and has a low chance at dropping a rare item is pretty stupid.
are you sure helm only drops from golden one? i think that maybe wrong.
I am thinking that the helm doesn't drop anymore, maybe an update removed it? I have been farming the gold braided warrior for days now, long enough to get 60 items to drop from him. Not one of them was the helm. Assuming each piece had an equal probability with each drop, there is only about a 0.002% chance that I could get 60 items without it. He dropped about 8 of each of the other items (shield, axe, skirt, cape, and cuffs) and 18 of the tronches. The tronches seem to drop twice as frequently as the other pieces. Also worth noting, I joined the covenant of champions after he stopped spawning initially and that killed his drop rate to almost nothing, so I switched to using bonfire ascetics instead and he started dropping items again. I finally gave up (wish I did sooner) but I wanted to warn others who are set on getting this item that it may no longer be in the game (7/14/2017).
