Cainhurst Vilebloods is a covenant in Bloodborne. This covenant focuses on pvp and invasions. cainhurst_vilebloods.jpg

"Pledgers to this oath are Cainhurst Vilebloods, hunters of blood who find dregs for their Queen of coldblood, particularly in that of hunters. Yet the corrupt are heretics in the eyes of the Church, thus subject to the wrath of the Executioners." - Corruption
"Once, a scholar betrayed his fellows at Byrgenwerth, and brought forbidden blood back with him to Cainhurst Castle. It was there that the first of the inhuman Vilebloods was born. The Vilebloods are fiendish creatures who threaten the purity of the Church's blood healing. The Ruler of the Vilebloods is still alive today." - Alfred

 

Cainhurst Vilebloods Details

  • Blood Dregs, which are used to rank up in this covenant, are found by killing other hunters or NPC hunters.
  • After giving 99+ Dregs, I don't believe there are other ranks available, If more are found, this line will be removed.
  • Summoning or Ranking Mechanics
  • Special Rank Rewards

Lore

  • According to Alfred, the Vilebloods were born because of the actions of an unknown scholar at Byrgenwerth. He brought "forbidden blood" to Cainhurst Castle, where the corruption began and opposition to the church started to form.
  • Almost all the Vilebloods were wiped out by the Executioners in a daring raid of the castle. The queen was kept alive, but trapped and hidden away by an illusion by Martyr Logarius for reasons unknown. However, Arianna's existence raises questions as to whether or not there are others from the Cainhurst lineage that survived the purge and/or managed to escape.
  • Relevant lore theories can be found under The Mysteries of Cainhurst Garb & Architecture.

 

Notes, Hints and Tips

  • Covenant farming tips, video links etc go here.
  • Blood dregs are dropped by NPC hunters aswell, you can use the resonant bell and kill NPCs in other worlds. Areas that have numerous NPCs are a substantial farming location such as: Yahar'gul Chapel (3 NPC gank squad) or Nightmare Frontier. (Note: Must have the Vileblood rune equipped for blood dregs to drop.)
  • If you deliver the Unopened Summons to Alfred and allow him to kill Annalise, you will be unable to join or interact with the Vileblood covenant in that playthrough until you revive Annalise at the Altar of Despair using the Queenly Flesh.
  • No perceivable changes to gaining rank, tested at rank 1 of Vilebloods, and no additional dialog with the Queen

        hey some real quick questions. if you pledge yourself to be a vileblood, even if you dont have the rune equipped can executioners still fight you as invaders? and if you pledge yourself can you wear/get the executioner rune because i want the chikage but I want to be an executioner with my pals.

          No rank or reward.05 Jul 2016 14:58  

          At least over 100 dregs given. No ''rank up'' or any rewards. It's all just simple leaderboards. Huge shame, on the plus side, if you're like me who couldn't care less about the leaderboards, just use the dregs for insight, this can be extremely helpful for endgame pvp.

            Alfred killing her?05 Jul 2016 14:58  

            I would rather join her faction rather then Alfred, but I've already "agreed" to work with Alfred only up until the point where he gives you Fire Paper. Is there anything I should avoid so he doesn't kill her? I'd like to join her sooner rather then later (I know she can be revived)

              Upon joining you also receive the "Respect" gesture. <br/> <br/>After giving 5 Blood Dregs I received the "Deep Respect" gesture. Will update as I turn in more dregs

                No dregs from killing cooperators?05 Jul 2016 14:58  

                While invading recently, I noticed that if a beckoner has one or more cooperators, the cooperators do not drop blood dregs if killed. I have only ever received blood dregs from killing the beckoner. I always have my rune equipped when invading. Just something I noticed.

                  HoHs summoning VBs is possible in chalices05 Jul 2016 14:58  

                  The other day I was trying to summon two friends to join me in a chalice, with password. I'm a HoH. Got one friend in ok, but to our surprise we then got a random co'op-er summoned as a Vileblood. Neither of my friends had cov runes equipped, so I can only conclude that the vileblood player was marked as blood-addled by the sinister bell.

                    Says this is a covenant focused on pvp and invasions yet its the only one with any benefit from playing co-op by being able to farm Blood Dregs by killing hunter enemies in the host's world. The other two only have situational invasions tacked on.

                      A note: Vilebloods can summon hostile executioners regardless of online passwords05 Jul 2016 14:58  

                      Even if you've put a password on to summon friends, be advised that you can still summon Executioners, they seem to override the password. That was a fun surprise.

                          If Alfred kills her05 Jul 2016 14:58  

                          So if alfred kills her, can I then revive her and continue to rank in Vilebloods? I just want to get all covenant runes, but rank the vilebloods

                            Lore about laurence?05 Jul 2016 14:58  

                            Why is it even on this page? I still haven't seen anything that links him to the Vilebloods, not to mention he's part of the church. You know, the group that doesn't like the vilebloods.

                              lore about the vilebloods is wrong?05 Jul 2016 14:58  

                              laurence founded the healing church and the healing church founded the executioners soooo how in what way would make him want to hunt the very group he started it doesn't make any sense just saying

                                  I joined the vilebloods in NG but now I'm in NG+ and I have the letter but the chariot doesn't show up any ideas?

                                  • Changes05 Jul 2016 14:58  

                                    I removed the part about Laurence. There's too much speculation for this to be the official &quot;lore,&quot; so I decided to add neutral information instead, like raising the possibility that others like Arianna somehow survived the purge.
