Blood Dreg

The Vilebloods of Cainhurst, blood-lusting hunters, see these frightful things in coldblood. They often appear in the blood of echo fiends, that is to say, the blood of hunters.

Queen Annalise partakes in these blood dreg offerings, so that she may one day bear the Child of Blood, the next Vileblood heir.

Blood Dreg is a Consumable Item in Bloodborne.





  • Used to increase covenant ranking by offering to Queen Annalise
  • Using them from inventory will give Insight (+1) without adding rank in the covenant

      The dude banging his head in the first locked cell right after Ludwig always drops a dreg. Helpful If you're offline, hate pvp, or killed every other obvious npc hunter before equipping the rune... Like I did..

        If your stupid like me you’ll miss out on a few from time to time because you think it’s funny to jump off cliffs and kill yourself after defeating a host because you can’t drop your echoes that way but you instead miss the Dreg as it takes some 10 seconds after “prey slaughtered” to actually obtain it

          I've just confirmed that the three hunters in Yahar'gul as well as the Crow of Cainhurst drop blood dregs when they die.

            The trivia section once again implies a connection to dark souls (particularly ds3) even though Miyazaki has confirmed the 2 are 100% unrelated and unconnected. I hate when people try to connect the lore despite the CREATOR OF THE GAME explaining there are ZERO connections between the two.

              I think someone else said on the Moon Presence page that MP's tentacled head kind of resembles blood dregs.

              Also, if blood dregs specifically appear in Hunters' blood, does it have something to do with the infusion we get at the beginning of the game?

              One last tidbit: thematically, the blood dregs are obviously very similar to human dregs from DS3, representing the most unwanted aspects of mankind, yet apparently precious to certain individuals. Kind of like semen, which we consider obscene, yet crucial for human existence.

                Other than the fun of it collecting dregs for insight is the only other reason I even kill other hunters. Talk about blood drunk lol

                  It ain't "bloody sperm", it's literally sperm that's in the blood of all hunters (the see it in coldblood). Probably old one sperm since queenie is trying to use it to get preggers with "the child of blood" Consuming it grants insight which in this case probably works similar to the umbilical chords in that you become more like an old one the more of it's sperm you take in. In that sense maybe humans are like the egg and the old ones are trying to "fertilize" us in order to create the hybred that can live.

                    After joining Cainhurst Vilehunters and equipping the covenant rune, I started getting blood dregs out of nowhere. Like for example when I went to take on the final fight of Eileen's quest, I walked through the cathedral doors and got a blood dreg out of nowhere. That katana guy wasn't in the cathedral, but his loot was in front of the lamp, like he died without me even going there? That has happened with several other fightable NPCs too, I just get a dreg or two when I enter an area and the NPCs aren't there. Anyone else experienced this?

                      My character stopped receiving blood dregs when I win pvp matches. This began after the queen died, I killed alfred, then revived her.

                        Seek the "pale" blood is the main goal of the game... My reaction after reading description of this item: Pale. Blood. Are you f*n serious!? x_x
