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.

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 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".

      For cursed gems I find the two frenzy enemies just before Orphan of Kos to be easiest, just go down the elevator and kill them and hunters mark back.

        Don't know if it's a bug or a feature of the ''defiled experience'', but, for example, when I leave an unfinished layer (meaning I haven't beaten the boss) to return to the hunter's dream to resupply it erases all the progress I made in the area. 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?
        P.S. I'm in ng+ 3 or 4.

            I can't even complete layer one this chalice makes me want to just scream. 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)!

                        Oh yeah, this dungeon's going to be the bane of my existence. If anyone would like to co-op with me, my PSN is LordMalus.

                        Just a word of warning, though. I'm by no means great at this. I'm prone to making stupid, possibly rookie, mistakes even though I'm level 220+. Right now my Bloodtinge and Arcane are in the 40s and all my other stats are 50.

                          I was there to help my friend to beat the Watch Dog, so I rang my bell. Only thing, instead of the Small Bell, I rang the Sinister one by error... So I entered in someone else's world, just before the lamp... The guy I was invading by error jumped on me, and literally wrecked the***** out of me LOL. He was so pissed and I wasn't prepared to this LOL. I'm glad he did because I didn't want to ruin his day in the worst chalice dungeon.

                            Hey guys, I have a problem... as soon as I defeated the 4 layer boss in the lower Pthumeru chalice, it droped the Cursed and Defiled Root Chalice that, according to this page, only drops in the watchdog boss, so now I can't go to the Cursed and Defiled
                            Chalice (Pthumeru). Please I need help.
                            PS: I just wanted the trophy :(
