Cainhurst Summons

An old blood-stained summons, inviting an honored guest to the forsaken Castle Cainhurst.

Rather bafflingly, it is addressed to you.

Do not hesitate; the stagecoach leaves from Hemwick crossing.

Cainhurst Summons is a Key Item in Bloodborne.


Cainhurst Summons Usage





  • To get to the sick room, go to the Forbidden Woods lamp. Run across the bridge and follow the path, sticking to the left wall. You should pass the village entrance and the house with the red lamp. Turn left behind the house and you will see a cave. Make your way through the cave until you arrive at two tall ladders which lead back to the Central Yharnam starting area. At the top, open the gate to the left and climb another ladder at the end of the path to gain access to the clinic. Once you enter the clinic, the Cainhurst Summons will be down the hall on the right.
    • The cave is filled with poisonous water, bring resistance / antidotes for an easier journey.

      I’ve also had the issue where the summons doesn’t spawn after killing the witch of hemwick. My latest playthrough, though, it did, and all I did differently was talk to the church hunter who was the protege of Logarius at two places. Is this a trigger to make it spawn? Can anyone confirm this?

          You have to defeat the Witch of Hemwick first before the item will appear. Since she's an optional boss, it may have been missed.

              I myself have found it, but it does not appear for a friend of mine. There must be a trigger. For those that aren't 100% sure, it's on the operating table you start the game at.

                So why is it in the Clinic? seems like there should be a reason why it's there. I may just be dumb tho

                    Summons Trigger05 Jul 2016 14:47  

                    There has to be either a bug or as of yet undetermined trigger for the Cainhurst Summons. I've killed 7 bosses (cleric, paarl, Gascoigne, witch, shadow, vicar, and bloodstarved), and it's night with a normal moon. The summons never appears for me.
