Elden Ring: How To Get The Imp Head (Cat)

Elden Ring: How To Get The Imp Head (Cat)

To get the Intelligence-boosting Imp Head (Cat) headpiece in Elden Ring, Tarnished can farm various catacomb Dungeons in the Lands Between.

The Imp Head (Cat) is a heavyweight helm in Elden Ring that offers decent defensive properties, yet its main appeal will be its unique design and the +2 buff the headpiece provides Intelligence. The Imp Head (Cat) previously granted a +5 to Int during the game’s initial release but was nerfed to the current +2 in a recent update. However, the helmet’s protection and the solid Int boost for Sorcery casters in Elden Ring still make the Imp Head (Cat) a viable option for Tarnished headwear.

The only way to get the Imp Head (Cat) is by slaying Imps, also referred to as “Jade Goblins.” These elusive creatures commonly reside within underground tombs throughout the world, particularly within Limgrave. Defeating these creatures grants the possibility for the player to receive a Forked Hatchet, a Smithing Stone, or the helm. Unfortunately, the cat-eared headpiece drop is relatively rare, making obtaining it from these slippery critters challenging.

There are several locations across the map where Tarnished can farm the Imp Head (Cat). The most accessible place during the early game is the Stormfoot Catacombs, found northwest of the Church of Elleh. Another site includes the Impaler’s Catacombs, located on the northeastern side of the Weeping Peninsula, south of Limgrave. Furthermore, once players enter Liurnia of the Lakes in Elden Ring, they can find more Glade Goblins within the Cliffbottom Catacombs. This crypt is located along the Liurnia Highway near the region’s southern coastline.

Elden Ring adventurers will likely find many more underground tombs crawling with Imp mobs. Therefore, it is recommended that players choose a location they prefer to hunt and begin farming for the Imp Head (Cat). While the drop rate will largely depend on RNG, Tarnished can modify the likelihood of receiving the helmet in their favor by snacking on a Silver-Pickled Fowl Foot before farming.

The Silver-Pickled Fowl Foot is a rare Consumable that can be found throughout the Lands Between or crafted after discovering the Missionary’s Cookbook [3]. This Cookbook can be found within the Smoldering Church, a landmark that sits near the eastern border of Limgrave and Caelid. While players are advised to enter Caelid after reaching Level 60 or higher, it is moderately easy to ride atop Torrent and swiftly grab the recipe book without hostile confrontations. Additionally, after making several Silver-Pickled Fowl Feet, players will significantly increase their chances of obtaining the Imp Head (Cat) in Elden Ring.
