Defiled Chalice

A chalice that breaks a labyrinth seal.defiled chalice.png

Only, this defiled chalice is cursed.

Curses are caused by inciting the anger of the Great Ones, and used to hex others. Special materials are required to complete the ritual.

To try one's hand at curses, first seek the Bastard of Loran.


Defiled Chalice, also known as the Cursed and Defiled Chalice, is a Chalice in Bloodborne. You can create this chalice dungeon by combining the materials listed below at one of the Tomb Altars in Hunter's Dream. This dungeon never changes Bosses, design or loot.



Defiled Chalice Information




  • Lower Pthumeru Chalice Dungeon (drops from Layer 4's boss)
  • For higher chances of co-op with the Fextralife community, create your Cursed Pthumerian Defilement dungeon to unlock it, then join Fextra Defiled dungeon via this Glyph: b4bi2s3n







Heres a video showing how to fight the bosses in Cursed Pthumeru Chalice 



  • Permanently lowers players hit points by 50% while inside the dungeon
  • The amounts of physical damage received and heal will be decreased along with the decreased max health, but elemental damage will do normal damage (making keeper of the old lords in layer 1 surprisingly tough, being able to 1 shot players).
  • Contains enemies belonging to both Pthumeru and Hintertomb.
  • Drops very good radial blood gems, which increases physical damage by an enormous amount (20%+) at the cost of decreased durability.
  • Sometimes this chalice would be glitched and wouldn't drop by BLB in lower P, simply search for the fix shared defile.
  • An effective method of dispatching with the Keeper of the Old Lords in the First Layer, is to utilize Beast Roar with a high DPS weapon, and lock him in a chain. 



  • Be careful when exiting the Layer 1 lamp room - there is an oil puddle directly in front of the exit, along with a Labyrinth Ritekeeper hiding to the right, so charging out recklessly could result in getting one-shotted.
  • Called the "Cursed and Defiled Chalice" in EU game.
  • Drops the "Defiled Root Chalice" in EU game, even though it is called "Cursed and Defiled Chalice".

      As a person who mostly goes in alone and is melee focused I might as well give up on that platinum trophy now

        This is the least amount of fun I think I’ve ever had playing a video game. I love Bloodborne, but this chalice is uncreative, untested garbage. It’s not often part of a game is so bad that I sit back and think, “what on earth were they thinking?”, but I’ve definitely done that a few times with these dungeons, especially this one. It took me an entire day to do this dungeon. Throughout the entire main story game, I died twice. I spent an entire. damn. day doing this dungeon. And when it was over, I didn’t feel relieved, I didn’t feel good, or proud of myself for beating the bosses. I was upset that I wasted an entire day slugging through a dungeon that is honestly a huge neglected mistake. I hate this dungeon. psn: umbraplatinum

          50 vigor, tier 3 great lake rune, tier 3 fading lake rune, tier 3 clockwise metamorphosis rune, charred hunter garb, gloves, and trousers, and yanamura hunter hat. Watch dog still one shots if the charge hits.

            Yes, yes, make it so the player has half their max health all the time, and place two hard hitting bosses in it. In all seriousness, chalices could've been so much better, shown especially by this. But lazy design like this, the grinding, potential lack of reward, and the repetitiveness makes chalices very boring, infuriating, and annoying, especially when you want to just get 100% completion and the platinum trophy.

                God, this chalice dungeon is the epitome of lazy design and the wrong kind of challenge. And ***** whoever thought putting Amygdala here was a good idea.

                    If your vitality is 50 and equip the charred hunter set with fire, all dmg reduction rune you can avoid being one shotted by the dog charged attack.

                        Couldn't ever stagger the flame sword girl (trap?) So I just dodged and counter attacked like Miyazaki intended us to. Praise the sun and git gud scrubs.

                          I defeated the keeper of Old lords easily by using Augur of Ebrietas. You just use it to parry him opening him for Visceral attack however it id hard to visceral attack him just normal attack due to time window. (I visceral attack him by doing this once, most of the time just R1) Augur of Ebrietas-> R1-> R1->Repeat Just keep your distance and avoid his fire and you should be good. BTW I have 51 Arcane and Augur of Ebrietas deals 450-525 damage on him plus 500 damage for normal attack. You can do a total of 1500 damage per process

                            i was scared first but in the end i did enjoy this dungeon. you learn how the bosses behave and not to be scared of them. also while having only half life, the few enemies that you encounter do a lot less damage.

                              Don't make the same mistake I did and parry the Keeper in a corner. He teleported up into the ceiling and I couldn't finish the fight LOL.

                                "charging out recklessly could result in getting one-shotted" lmao, walking into the dungeon is now considered "reckless", that's game design for you

                                  Don't let Keeper flame his sword(shoot or hit him before it) and he'll be in a loop of fending you off and then trying to enchant it(which you can stop again). Makes him a piece of cake,
