Blood Stone Chunk

A solid shard that forms in coldblood.

After death, some substances crystallise, but most simply harden and form blood stones.

At the workshop, these blood stones are embedded in weapons to fortify them.

Bloodstone Chunk is an upgrade Item in Bloodborne.


Blood Stone Chunk Usage

  • Used to Fortify weapons to +9.
  • You will need 3 to get to +7, 5 to +8, and 8 to +9 for a total of 16.



Farming Strategy

Can be farmed from the blue-eyed Scourge Beasts in Upper Cathedral Ward. The drop rate is about 1 in 8 drop rate with high discovery. It is recommended to use a weapon with long-reach that can attack through walls.

Videos of this strategy are available on YouTube.

      I would buy Chunks for 5 Insight a piece but 20 is ridiculous! +9 to +10 costs 60 insight. +8 to +9 costs 160 insight. Who's the genius behind that?

        Wish you could combine earlier blood shards into one, like idk 4 shards for a twin, and like 10 twins for a chunk. Id be happy with that, but no! We have to farm them from late game enemies with not even that good a drpprate even at higu discovery! Best I've had is averaging one per upper cathderal ward run. All 3 eye runes, milkweed and 60 arcane at work, which gives me a droprate of about 20% considering there are 5 werewolves. Lots of work just to be unable to get a reliable droprate is a bummer.

          I fucking hate farming these, why can't i simply buy them with blood echos or combine twin blood shards? It just doesn't make any sense.

            If you want to farm these reliably and have gotten to depth 3 chalices, bosses from depth 3 chalices are capable of dropping chunks. They're significantly easier than the Depth 4 or 5 alternatives, and can drop you mid tier gems.

              A good spot to farm these is glyph jemmjmpi
              The lever is behind The ladder, you only have to kill 2 brain suckers ( 1 at The lever and 1 boss)
              Pretty Quick and i dont know if The runes actually increase The amount dropped but using The 3 i usually drop 2
              Maybe a bit too late but i wanted to share for people who might have picked up from psn giveaway

                The probability of being drop by blue-eyed wolves increases according to the level of "Discovery", right? Does anyone know what percentage of probabilities remains according to that level?

                  I'm on my first play through of the Old Hunters DLC, and I just reached the Research Hall. In the room are two Scurrying Beasts, both of which drop two Bloodstone Chunks for a total of four. I noticed this wasn't mentioned here, so I thought I'd share my discovery.

                    If you don't want to use a the exploits then you are at a big disadvantage given the drops for chunks is so poor. Ive spent an afternoon farming to get two. I've given up now and accepted most of my things will stay around +6/7, I've only managed to +10 one weapon so far which feels odd for me!

                      Good news for you guys ) Dungeon hellhounds drop them in 50% rate. But only if you have about 400 of discovery. I have 430 (50 arcane + eye runes). I cant confirm this increase on story levels, Im on NG+ and not there yet. So I have this F, R, Cursed dungeon with firedogs, with very little space to maneuver and unsafe environment, and surviving this encounter about 1/3 of the time. Please, if you know not cursed dungeon, with lamppost near this guys please share it )

                          43 Blood Stone Chunks in total05 Jul 2016 14:36  

                          According to this article there are a total of 43 Chunks to be found in one playthrough, if you dont get any from enemie drops. Thats one weapon to +10, one to +9 and one to +8 in one playthrough. Seems...reasonable?
