Getting the Divine Beast Head is simple enough. All players need to do is beat the first boss of the game, the Divine Beast Lion Dancer. This boss can be found in Belurat, the Tower Settlement. He is a particularly tough opponent for melee players because of his fast-paced combat style and constant movement.

Once players finish the fight, they will obtain the Divine Beast Head as loot without further instructions on its hidden function. However, there are hints if you know where to look.

The main function of the Divine Beast Head is, of course, as head gear. It can be worn by the tarnished, which certainly adds bling to your character. It looks absolutely ridiculous due to its size, but it can be used to get some extra lore and a few goodies. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Fast travel to the Private Altar site of grace in Belurat.
  • Go through the south door to reach a bridge with two enemies.
  • Kill the enemies and move forward to reach a locked door.
  • You will need the Storeroom Key to proceed. It can be obtained from a room slightly further up in the tower.
  • Go inside and talk to the NPC, Hornsent Grandam, sitting hunched over on the far-right bench in the Storeroom.

If players visit Hornsent Grandam before beating the Divine Beast, she will have a few choice words for them. There is a Divine Beast Head sitting on a table to the Grandam’s left, hinting at a connection between the Beast and the Grandam.

If the player isn’t wearing the right gear, Hornsent Grandam will only make grunting noises. However, when the player tries to talk to her with the Divine Beast Head equipped, she will talk to the player for a little bit and give the player some rewards.

The first time, players will be given Watchful Spirit, a new incantation that needs 28 FAI to use and consumes 12 FP per cast. She also gives the player some stew if you visit her after reloading the area.
