To obtain a Stained Mask, you need to find and kill Hilichurls over Level 40+. Upon eliminating these standard enemies, they have a chance to drop Stained Masks. Anything above Lvl 40+ also has a chance to drop Damaged Masks.
To get Hilichurls to become Lvl 40+, you need your World Level to become World Level 2 or higher. The most efficient WL to farm is WL 4, as enemies are between Level 42 and 62. This will give you the most consistent enemy Lvl past 40+. Anything below you will find them, but not as often.
To get to WL 4, you need to have completed the following.
- Be on World Level 3
- Be Adventure Rank 35
- Clear Ascension Quest 2
You can get these from any of the Churl Family, such as Samachurls, Mitachurls, and Lawachurls, but not as often. This means killing bog-standard Hilichurls is your best bet, as they are the fastest and easiest to kill.
The quickest way to do this is to use the Waypoints, kill everything in sight, and then move on. It might take you a while to amass the numbers you need.
The two images below are where you can find Hilichurls in both Mondstadt and Liyue. Just click on them to enlarge them.
