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.

      Honestly best advice on farming these is cursed chalices. Rock the milkweed rune in them alone and you activate a discovery stack from the curse that generates 1k discovery + another 1k discovery for every discovery rune equipped including the one activating this effect. Meaning 3 moons and milkweed jumps it to 5k and breaks any traditional caps on it also. In cases where you land watcher bosses in cursed dungeons each boss in that fight should generate a chunk each (at least when I do this it works) happy hunting.

        Farming these wouldn't be such a pain if the lamps acted more like Dark Souls bonfires. One thing Bloodborne did worse than DS for sure.

          The most effortless way to farm chunks is killing the gargoyles at Cainhurst Castle. Warp to the first lamp of the level, take the elevator shortcut up and trace back the way you came the first time when you were clearing the castle, there should be 6 gargoyles to kill, after dispatching all of them use mark to reload and repeat. Due to the chunks rarity, at least 400 Discovery is recommended if you use this method. It may not be the fastest way to farm chunks, but it's easy and decent enough if you're tired of killing other stronger beasts (gargoyles are very easily killed, even with little caution)

            Tip: You can farm the blue-eyed werewolves in the Upper Cathedral Ward in relative safety after you open the shortcut back to the lantern. Walk from the lantern to the 'orphanage door,' and all the werewolves will be in front of you facing the staircase. Aggro them one at a time (pebbles, bullets, knives...) and lure them back to the door. They can't pass the door, which means you can cheese them with your weapon of choice. They can still hit you through the door, though, so be careful. And it still takes forever for chunks to drop. But still...less dangerous than charging in from the top of the stairs.

                Here's a pretty decent glyph. Not a lot of extra stuff, but a clear route and an easy boss. Usually drops 1-2 chunks with 242 discovery. I was able to get the route to the lever and then the boss down to 1 minute 48 seconds. Video: It's a short video, so I'm not gonna explain it here.

         can get INFINITE chunks using the 3 scurrying beasts in the nightmare. 1 before ludwig and 2 as you enter research hall. I got over 200 in an hour. Not a dupe, it's the way the game loads new maps. Vids 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.

                          What sane person would ever go to the Upper Cathedral Ward to farm chunks? It's goddamn spooky in there.

                            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.
