Great Lake

A secret symbol left by Caryll, runesmith of Byrgenwerth.
This transcription of the Great Ones' inhuman voices ripples like a watery reflection.

This rune means "Lake", and those branded by it enjoy augmented defense.
Great volumes of water serve as a bulwark guarding sleep, and an augur of the eldritch Truth.
Overcome this hindrance, and seek what is yours..

Great Lake is a Caryll Rune in Bloodborne.


Great Lake Effects

  • Increases all defense types.
  • All DMG reduction +3%/ 4%/ 5%
  • Increases in defense are visible from the menu
  • Runes stack additively, with a system of diminishing returns.
  • When a Great Lake rune stacks, its effect is reduced by 5% of "what's already there".
  • For instance if Physical defense is already 200, then the increase will be reduced by 10 Physical defense.
  • +5% Physical defense = +50 Physical defense, which will become +40 if Physical defense is already 200.

                Worth It?05 Jul 2016 14:57  

                Even at 5% damage reduction, is this enough to be worth a rune slot compared to being able to carry more blood vials?
