I don't understand how to get this item... I helped poor old Harold and got the power armour, but wasn't offered this, did I have to pass a speech or something? (PS3 btw)
It seems if you are nasty to bloomseer poplar before you carry out Harold's quest she will not give you the Hood.TheRepublicOfDave 15:50, 5 February 2009 (UTC)
One of the F3 developers was apart of Looking Glass Studios that created Thief: The Dark Project. I find there are a lot of subtle similarities between the two games. Is it possible that this clothing item is a nod/reference to that games' PC = Garrett? In as much that you a can equip a smiliar looking Hood that Garrett permanetly wore and it increase's your sneak/stealth ability? 220.127.116.11 03:30, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
Yes, because the fact that Thief and Fallout 3 both feature hoods OBVIOUSLY means that the latter is a reference to the former. Seriously, think things through before you post them. Blutteufel 08:18, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
I think it's a likely possibility. It's not just that both games have hoods, but this particular hood has +10 Sneak, and Thief, a game with a main character who distinctively wore a hood, was all about sneaking. Bloomseer Poplar doesn't have a backstory or attributes that would justify giving +10 Sneak to her hood, and Fallout 3 isn't shy at all about going out of continuity for references and shoutouts. --18.104.22.168 01:16, 9 August 2009 (UTC)
What gun is he holding in that picture? I've never seen it before. 22.214.171.124
Is it possible to reverse pickpocket the hood?Tehuberleetmaster 18:19, 27 May 2009 (UTC)
Should combinations be put on the main page? I think something like that would be better for a talk page. Also, the math for the sneak bonus is wrong, which I'll change in a minute. Arcdash 16:02, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
Combo (PC) Edit
Poplar's Hood is good with armor that has a agility penility. Even with 10 agility this headgear will perfectly cancel out the penility from Tribal power armor allowing for the full 15AP bonus.

The article says it can be worn under power armor helmets, but this is not what I observed. Anyone else notice this or is there something I am missing?
I think the person who posted this used the CSA glitch, because I could not wear the Hood with an Enclave Power helmet, T-51b helmet, or Outcast power helmet. I'm removing this misleading information.--Hollow Points 01:35, October 27, 2009 (UTC)Hollow Points
Been awhile since I looked at this. No you can't wear Popular's Hood under a power helmet, or any other helmet, without abusing the CSA glitch.
Popular's hood + Lucky Shades + Tribal Power Armor + 10 Agility + Action Boy/Girl = 125 APs. That's five shots with A3-21's Plasma Rifle, or Lincon's Repeater, [b]before[/b] chems. This ends up being one of the more useful items of headgear in the game. --188.8.131.52 10:06, November 6, 2009 (UTC)
I think the person who posted that information may have been using the Winterized T-51b Power Helmet, which WOULD allow you to wear Poplar's Hood under it, as it allows the wearing of additional headwear similar to the CSA glitch. TheShotgunShogun (UTC) 06:28, October 19, 2011 (UTC)
Half A Year Edit
From my point in the game i completed Oasis half a year back game time but didn't talk to Bloomseer Poplar and didn't get the Hood from her, after a full six months will i still be able to get the Hood off her?
it depends on how you finished the quest but time make no difference make sure you get the rest of the stuff from the quest Five Star Genral Of The Dead BigDog 16:09, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
Obtaining Bug? Edit
it seems that the gift topic does not appear when speaking to bloomseer poplar, she only offers me to get my future revealed once a day. do i have to speak to her before i finish the quest? - Is it possible to steal the hood from her?
What the hell is Minderlithe? Edit
The question is from quite a while ago, but my guess is "Minder", as in Treeminder and "lithe" referring to agility (imparted by the hood).
