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

 

 

Location

  • 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

Notes

  • 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. 

 

Trivia

  • 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".

      The AoE fest that is the WatchDog becomes 10 times more annoying when he can one shot you with a single charge. I had to summon Yharnam's version of Let Me Solo Her but even then it's hard.

        Rifle spear is good in keeper fight ngl,if you know the charged R2 range of the spear,you can keep cheesing it and it will die eventually, works on both phase 1 and 2.Or furthermore,you can get a hunter tool that deals damage like small tony or executioner's glove even if you don't have much arcane,just get blood bullet before charging up and you'll be back at full health.Good luck on the platinum,i'm here experiencing pain at watch dog with you all.

          This is from the same developers who made The Old Hunters. Just proof that anyone can make mistakes, I guess.

            Also worth noting is fact that some of the Watchdogs moves can instantly send summons to shadow realm where they dissapear and die after like 30 seconds

                    If you're struggling with staying alive, consider runes like Blood Rapture. At 35 Vitality (628 HP), you can restore half your health with a visceral attack. Great Lake is damn near necessary for bosses. 4% reduction doesn't sound like much, but I believe it works twice on split damage sources (someone please correct me if I'm wrong), which helps with Keeper/Watchdog, which hit you with fire/physical attacks.
                    If you're low on HP and desperately need a heal AND you're out of blood vials AND you don't have Blood Rapture memorized, don't forget about the little old Choir Bell (if you've got the Arcane requirement). Tested at 26 Arcane, and it was a complete heal for 7 QS in this dungeon (healed 528 HP). Worth noting that you can use blood bullets to reduce the cost to 2 real QS bullets, and the Choir Bell will still be a net heal. 4 net QS bullets is a full heal (blood bullets cost 182 HP in this dungeon, again at 35 Vitality with no Clockwise Metamorphosis memorized).
                    Good luck finding the time to use that in a boss fight, but it could help you push on where you'd otherwise have to Hunter's Mark out.
                    Also, Keeper can be stunlocked by Rakuyo just as well as BoM, and you can use Bolt Paper on those. If you're still struggling, try about 10 poison knives + Blacksky Eye. At 26 arcane, BSE was hitting for 230ish/hit. Kiting her is relatively easy, as she (for some reason) likes to spam Flame Fan (or Bloodborne's non-pyromancy equivalent) from halfway across the arena. Also tested Repeating Pistol + BMA at 42 Bloodtinge, and was hitting for 725ish per shot. I wouldn't use the Cannon on her, since she dodges.
                    Good luck everyone. I hope you get your platinum trophies.

                      I love Bloodborne. I have put 100's of hours into Bloodborne. I have gotten all the achievements in the Bloodborne. So I can safely say that this is the worst thing in the game and should have never been added to it. It feels like they didn't even bother to test this before putting it in with all the cheap bull**** and fake difficulty. Really feels like the chalice dungeons were an excuse to add unfinished bosses and enemies to the game and to pad out the length for completationists

                        The true nightmare in this defiled son-uva-motha is roly-poly man guarding the coffin between layer 2 and 3. He’s @ss-butted me in the face at least half a dozen times!

                          My first, blind playthrough on a strength-ish build (it was all over the place really) through this chalice WAS.NOT.FUN.
                          Seriously considered dropping the game once I hit a brickwall with Amy. Finally scrambled through that fight by constantly baiting the jump attack and charging two-handed r2s with LHB and the axe.

                          Next time was on an arcane build and it was downright relaxing compared to the first time. The first boss proved the most difficult on this run; think I mainly spammed blacksky eye and used HML's heavy charged attack to keep her on the ground. I had 50+ arcane, which meant I could use all the hunter tools / spells.

                          Third time was using Simon's bowblade. Very simple, repetitive and easy.

                          If none of those are not an option for you, I heartily recommend one of the following weapons: the burial blade or the axe or the amygdala arm / beast cutter in their transformed states. They've all got good reach and can easily hit the heads of dog and amy.

                            ok i played Lower Pthumeru Chalice and my final boss is a giant spider and i didn't get any chalice for killing final boss??

                              "A chalice that breaks a labyrinth seal.defiled chalice.png". Now that's some juicy lore right. "defiled chalice.png" could suggest that Bloodborne is actually a simulation, and not real life. Was Yharnam never real? Did we really hunt beasts, or were they just pixels on a screen?

                                I went all-in upgrading my cannon and bloodtinge just so that, in the chance that I got a defiled boss down to 1/5 of their health, 2 shots from the cannon just might finish them off or allow me to get in a hit or two. I ended up killing Watchdog this way and the rest was breezy.

                                  Nothing says "We ran out of ideas" quite like a Dungeon with no new bosses whose only gimmick is tiny arenas and halved health. This term gets thrown around a lot but this is actual artificial difficulty.

                                      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

                                          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.

                                                        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 have summoned both Olek and The Queen Killer at different times and neither one are able to damage the Watchdog of the Lords. Like they hit it, even can stun or put it into visceral position.

Sometimes he also approaches you slowly- with a fast weapon you can stunlock him for a while and deal surprising amount of damage.

Bringing me back to the previous layer's boss even though I've lit lamps, unlocked doors and stuff. Quite frustrating since it's already a hard level. Anybody else have had this issue occure to them?

And it seems that finding someone for co-op is nearly impossible because my bell never connects with anyone (even after waiting for 45 minutes one time)!
