Defiled Chalice, also known as the Cursed and Defiled Chalice, is a Chalice in Bloodborne. You can create this chalice dungeon by combining the materials listed below at one of the Tomb Altars in Hunter's Dream. This dungeon never changes Bosses, design or loot.

Only, this defiled chalice is cursed.

Curses are caused by inciting the anger of the Great Ones, and used to hex others. Special materials are required to complete the ritual.

To try one's hand at curses, first seek the Bastard of Loran.


Defiled Chalice Information




  • Lower Pthumeru Chalice Dungeon (drops from Layer 4's boss)
  • For higher chances of co-op with the Fextralife community, create your Cursed Pthumerian Defilement dungeon to unlock it, then join Fextra Defiled dungeon via this Glyph: b4bi2s3n









  • Permanently lowers players hit points by 50% while inside the dungeon
  • The amounts of physical damage received and heal will be decreased along with the decreased max health, but elemental damage will do normal damage (making keeper of the old lords in layer 1 surprisingly tough, being able to 1 shot players).
  • Contains enemies belonging to both Pthumeru and Hintertomb.
  • Drops very good radial blood gems, which increases physical damage by an enormous amount (20%+) at the cost of decreased durability.
  • Sometimes this chalice would be glitch and wont drop by BLB in lower P, simply search for the fix shared defile.



  • Be careful when exiting the Layer 1 lamp room - there is an oil puddle directly in front of the exit, along with a Labyrinth Ritekeeper hiding to the right, so charging out recklessly could result in getting one-shotted.
  • Called the "Cursed and Defiled Chalice" in EU game.
  • Drops the "Defiled Root Chalice" in EU game, even though it is called "Cursed and Defiled Chalice".

      Does the chalice lower your vigor or your health directly? If it just lowers vigor then you can invest more points into vigor. If it effects health directly then it is a different result.

              Tip for Amygdala for Bloodtinge/Skill builds, do it only with bullets. (Evelyn +10). With the distance you're really safe and it staggers it after a bit.

                ~LegionatorMax: I can't stand the final fight. I've gotten Amygdala to near death more times than I can count. No boss, not a single one, in this entire game, has ever given me this much trouble. I one shot the ORPHAN for God's sake! The most tries I've ever taken on a boss was probably the Abhorrent Beast in Loran, and even that wasn't more than the amount of Insight I had on me (always less than 15 for my first playthrough). But this? At LEAST 20 tries, if not more. I've tried everything, even upgrading other weapons to try and exploit his weaknesses... I'm SICK of this fight. I want to move on!
