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".

      "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,

          If anyone else is still doing this, I am experiencing what I assume to be a bug but am not sure. 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. But the health bar does not register the damage done by them only me. Is that supposed to happen?

            Permanently lowers players hit points by 50% while inside the dungeon, this is the sign of a*****ty dev..... a cheap shortcut for difficulty that is more annoying than difficult

              If anyone is struggling with Keeper of the Old Lords, I found out that Executioners' Gloves on arcane build and baiting Conflagration-like attack, then dashing to the side and attack is very effective. Sometimes he also approaches you slowly- with a fast weapon you can stunlock him for a while and deal surprising amount of damage.

                  Whoever is the retarded that designed this dungeon, I hope they got fired and never be employed again. What a *****ing way to ruin a game. "I can't make a genuine difficult level so I will just cut the player's HP by half and make all the bosses une-shot them" ***** this dungeon is pure bullshit

                    i hate this damage. taking away half our health and keeping elemental damage the same is like paralyzing me, putting me in a wheelchair, and telling me, “just get up these stairs! we only blocked off the small ramped section, the rest is all yours to climb!”
