Augur of Ebrietas is a Hunter Tool in Bloodborne.


Augur of Ebrietas Description

"Remnant of the eldritch Truth encountered at Byrgenwerth. Use phantasms, the invertebrates known to be the augurs of the Great Ones,
to partially summon abandoned Ebrietas.
The initial encounter marked the start of an inquiry into the cosmos
from within the old labyrinth, and led to the establishment of the Choir."


Augur of Ebrietas Usage

  • Activating this Hunter Tool causes a number of large tentacles to extend from the Hunter's hand, which deal Arcane damage and knocks enemies over.



  • It can be found in the Lecture Building 1st Floor and obtained in a chest on the right side of the building (looking from the lamp to the frontier  portal). The key to the locked lecture room that leads to this chest can be found in the lecture room on the left, on the lecturer's body.
  • Be warned, there are roughly a dozen Slime Scholars in the lecture room on the right, whom you would be fighting at the same time. Having a weapon that hits a wide area is recommended.


Player Notes

  • As of Patch 1.07, it can parry and backstab to open up a visceral attack.
    • This can be useful if a hunter do not have access to a firearm, such as when wielding a trick weapon that occupies both hands.
  • Alternatively, it can be used as a damage source, thanks to its high Arcane scaling (S).
    • A common meta for Arcane builds is 50 when you plan on using the Hunter Tools that have Arcane scaling.
  • It can also be used as a crowd control tool, since it knocks down most small sized enemies and stagger medium sized ones.
  • It can only hit one opponent, despite the animation suggesting otherwise.
  • Its range is roughly half of that of a pistol shot. Its projectile speed is the same as well, although the multiple tentacles makes it slightly more difficult to dodge.
  • A selection of hostile hunters and NPCs use the Augur of Ebrietas. A list of these hunters/NPCs are:
  • When used by NPCs, this attack has such a long cast/recovery time that it can be consistently punished by a quickstep around to the attacker's back, followed by a charge attack and a back-Visceral Attack.
  • This strategy can also apply in PVP; however smart opponents will know to sidestep when dodging this ability, so be careful about recklessly spamming it.



  • Even after Ebrietas  has been defeated, the Augur can still be used to summon her tentacles.
  • It's possible that the Augur is what the Empty Phantasm Shell originally belonged to.

      I tried it few times and I wouldnt say range is half of a pistol. It seems like it has range of long melee weapon.

        Notably, in addition to the backstabs, this gives you access to parries while wielding a two handed weapon. A little more awkward than a gun perhaps but it lets you parry without transforming back.

          The most reliable tool to chain backstabs, at least on PvE. Makes maneater boars into a joke, albeit a very, very dirty one...

            I always found it unreliable as a parry tool because if the enemy isn’t at point blank range you can’t get to them in time as the recovery is ridiculous

              1) Walk someone down with L2 Whirligig Saw until your Stamina is gone, 2) Pop this, 3) Repeat, 4) ???, 5) Profit

                Incredibly useful against the orphan. Get him to use jumping attacks, and shoot this at his back for a backstab. Works both phases but it's obviously easier in the 1st phase

                  The purpose of phantasms and/or mollusks in the game focuses entirely around opening up portals to the cosmos. Perhaps a large collection of them is required to open up a fully functional doorway but would it be wise? I’m guessing the Choir attempted such a feat but abandoned it when the Isz chalice was found. Now the phantasms are divided out as tools rather then a means to open doorway.

                    Good in PvE, Maria is absolutely helpless against tentacular rape. OTOH, in PvP if you get lucky you might surprise someone with this. But the long recovery time makes it a big liability and borderline worthless as a parrying tool, as you'll only manage a visceral if you're already in position for it. I suppose you can't expect much from a tool that uses 1 QS bullet.

                      One of Orochimaru's signature jutsus: Striking Shadow Snakes. Lore confirmed Ebrietas is Orochimaru's daughter, and he is the Cosmos.

                        Im guessing it's a familiar of sorts, a catalyst which allows the user a teasing peek into the cosmos.

                        The scholars of the collage used them to try and make contact but were unsuccessful. When the cords of the eye were discovered, true contact was made and thus the phantasms were abandoned and became tools/weapons of the choir.

                          They should've named this Cheese of Ebrietas. Ever since I first found it with one of my first characters, I can't never at least invest the minimum points to use it on other characters. This and the Mandaras Whistle are my favorite tools hands down. The fact it knocks almost everyone over is what makes it so great.

                            The part about it not hitting targets in the way of the selected enemy needs to be updated. It does hit things in its path. Just lost so many echos because of this
