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

      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.

              Hunting Dregs07 Sep 2016 04:00  

              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.

                  Blood dregs out of nowhere?05 Jul 2016 14:53  

                  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?

                    No dregs after queen died/revived?05 Jul 2016 14:53  

                    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

                        Where the hell does that information come from. Bloodseeds? Sounds like someone pulled it out of their ass.

                          All of this talk of blood semen is reminding me of humanity from dark souls. Possibly another image innuendo.

                          • So...05 Jul 2016 14:53  

                            Wait, so she wants me to go out, murder indiscriminately, collect bloody semen from the bodies and bring it back to her so she can consume it in order to give birth to an alien baby? That's not how you pregnant XD

                              Theory: The Moon and Fertility05 Jul 2016 14:53  

                              This game is miserable with a strong affinity to fertility and the moon. There's a theory that all the blood used is actually mentral blood, as slightly evidenced by all the different Blood vial descripts. Only women can give blood ministration. Yharnam is named after the Pthumerian Queen Yharnam who's moon-blood is likely what founded the city. The Pthumerians were superhumans who uncovered the secrets of the great ones, no doubt their blood would yield great ability. Mensis literally moons Month/Moon, and also archaic to Menstral. The Great Ones require fertile human surrogates for their offspring, makes sense they they inseminate through these Dregs. You're using the menstral blood of the Yharnam queen who was knocked up by a Great One. Seems there's still some Great One residue in it if you catch my drift.
