A secret symbol left by Caryll, runesmith of Byrgenwerth.
Several runes relate to "blood", including "Communion",
which raises the maximum number of blood vials one may carry.

This rune represents the Healing Church and its ministers.
Blood ministration is, of course, the pursuit of communion.

Communion is a Caryll Rune in Bloodborne.


Communion Effects

  • Higher Blood Vial Maximum
  • Versions: +1 / +2 / +3 / +4 / +5




Communion Variations

        Here’s some trivia for ya:

        - The rune is displayed prominently on signage in the Research Hall.
        - A depiction of the rune appears on the sealed gate in the Cathedral Ward, and shows two figures standing about a chalice that is being filled with liquid released from a floating orb. This orb may represent the moon, and the chalice refers to the Holy Chalices used to reveal the Tomb of the Gods.
        - Possibly appears on the large pendant worn by Mergo’s Wet Nurse.
        - The face of the Moon Presence is pocked with four holes—three small ones surrounding the largest, central cavity. They seem to line up with this rune.
        - “Communion: a True Story” is the title of a famous novel written by ufologist Whitley Strieber, recounting tales of supposed close encounters with extraterrestrial beings of superior intelligence. The cover illustration of the novel depicts an alien’s face whose physiognomy may have played a part in the design of this rune.

        That’s all I got for this one.

            Glyph pmiqq34b
            Includes Communion +5 in Layer 1 Side Room (before Boss iirc).
            Also includes Formless Odeon +5 (Quicksilver Bullets)! The Formless Odeon is found at the very end of the Chalice - Layer 3 -after unlocking the door - Pre-Boss Side Room.
            The Chalice is depth 5 FRC cursedPthumeru Ilyh. Very interesting layout. Layer 1 and 3 are exceptionally challenging with Layer 3 being very large.
            Fair bosses all human-like:
            Keeper of the Old Lords.
            Beast Possessed Soul.
            Pthumurian Elder.
            Great Chunk potential and lots of powerful Cursed gems from regular enemy mob and bosses. Bring Eye Runes.
            Lots of Sinister Bell ringers watch out!!!
