Ailing Loran Chalice


A chalice that breaks a labyrinth seal."

"Loran is a tragic land that was devoured by the sands."

"The tragedy that struck this ailing land of Loran is said to have its root in the scourge of the beast."

"Some have made the dreaded extrapolation that Yharnam will be next."


Ailing Loran Chalice is a Chalice Item in Bloodborne. Combining the Materials listed below in the Chalice will create a Chalice Dungeon. You must be at the Tomb Altar in Hunter's Dream to do this. 



Ailing Loran Chalice Information





Beast-possessed Soul (Layer 1)

Blood-starved Beast (Layer 2)

Abhorrent Beast (Layer 3)



  • The Beast Claw weapon is located in this Chalice in a chest through the bonus area door right before Layer 2 lamp.
  • Many of the enemies in this dungeon are beasts. A fire weapon can make this chalice much easier.
  • Sometimes drops as "Lower Loran Chalice" , when it is in fact "Ailing" and can still be distinguished by required offerings and depth.
  • 4 Ritual Blood (5) can be found in this Chalice.
  • The first large room in Layer One (with the 8 hooded Beasts walking around) is an excellent place to quickly farm Blood Echoes. With Moon rune equipped, clearing the room nets over 40,000 echoes in under one minute with almost no risk.



  • The Loran Chalice Dungeons are characterized by more Beasts, and added weather effects.

      Be careful of the spider room on the 2nd layer(the room with 2 closed doors outside there's a werewolf) there are 2 bell maidens here don't stand too close to the door or the spiders will kill you, try to kill some of the through the door using boomhammer R2, transformed hunter axe charged. Once you open the door run in to kill the bell maidens immediately, one is upstairs right in front of the door with the werewolf the other is downstairs right in front of remaining door. If you died here and had opened the door it will be really hard the next time you try again.

        If you only want the bastard of loran you only need to beat the 2nd boss to get a shortsut with tons of bridges and go down to 3rd layer it connects directly with the treasure room with 4x or 6x bastard of loran and ritual blood(4). Theres a shortcut to the wooden bridges in 1st layer but I don't know if you can jump down to 3rd layer.

          1st layer is an excellent place to farm blood echoes! The medium group of beasts in the large open area near the first lamp are pretty easy to kill and give you about 32k-34k total; making this one of the best places to do it at this level. It normally takes me about 1 1/2 minutes to kill them all, then use Bold Hunter's Mark to reawaken at the lamp. The trick is to group them up into 2s and attack with a 1-2 combo to damage both, then jump back. Repeat. Do this 10x and you've easily got 300k blood echoes. This saved me so much! I just happened to farm here for a while to raise my health before taking on Blood Starved Beast.

            I have experienced a vastly different ailing loran than this. Code zmyp. Mine has various bell maidens and other nightmarish bastards in layer two for example and strangely no blood starved beasts. This is very strange.

              I have beaten the Abhorrent Beast 3 times now and i still don't have the Lower Loran Chalice. Is the drop chance random?

                Layer 1 boss beast-possessed soul also drops blood stone chunk. I got 1 blood stone chunk from him with 380 discovery. (60 arcane stat + lvl 2&3 eye)

                    "A fire weapon can make this dungeon much easier." Most of the time this is true, though some other enemies in the dungeon are partially immune to fire, including the Loran Clerics, Gels, fire-wielding Watchers/Madmen/Guardians, of which there are many in Loran. Serration is the primary weapon factor you want to stick to, which makes either the Saw Spear or the Church Pick your best bet (not sure why the Church Pick is considered serrated, but it is), since there aren't any enemies with a resistance to serration, and both of these weapons retain their serrated status upon transformation. Maybe keep just one weapon equipped with fire blood gems attached, then a secondary weapon without. You can also try using beast hunter gems, but keep in mind that this generally reduces the raw damage output, making the weapon weaker against non-beast enemies.

                      "Some have made the dreaded extrapolation that Yharnam will be next." Interesting to note that the lowest levels of Yahar'gul are flooded with sand and covered in dried-out vines, not to mention Darkbeast Paarl is located just outside the city, at the entrance to Old Yharnam, which of course is full of creatures also found in Loran. Makes me wonder if Loran never existed, and if the dungeon is actually just a vision of the future of Yharnam. If you read much Lovecraft, you start to realize how many of his stories revolve around someone receiving horrifying visions of the future and the decay of human intellect.

                        I have used this page for quite a while despite certain inaccuracies, including spelling errors, but no longer trust it as it does not explai the depth of labyrinths to their true extent. Like the fact that there are multiple labyrinths to Pthumeru/Pthumerian labyrinths. 5 in total to be exact. Sadly, I will no longer rely on this page as I have totally screwed up the process to get to the queen in the 5th Pthumerian Labyrinth

                            I am confused... I have all the material for this dungeon but it still says I do not have the requirement to do this. Do I need to complete every other chalice dungeon before to open that dungeon? If not that then what is it that I need to do? D:

                            • Disapointing Chalice05 Jul 2016 14:37  

                              I havent gone deeper than the first one. it is all reused bosses no unique ones. also the extremely unfair layer 3 loot room. im sure you know what i am referring to... 2 bell ladies past multiple enemies that summon 5 or so spiders EACH. on top of this there is an annoying bug where sometimes summoned enemies wont die upon killing the bell lady. so you can imagine how that plays out.

                                I've killed Amygdala twice; once in Normal and once in NG+. Both times the Ailing Loran Chalice item was NOT rewarded. The trophy for the item was however unlocked after the first kill. Any suggestions on what might be causing this, or if there is a work around to get the chalice? Need it to obtain my final weapon; beast claws. Thanks in advance.
