Dissipating Lake

A secret symbol left by Caryll, runesmith of Byrgenwerth.
This transcription of the Great Ones' inhuman voices ripples like a watery reflection.

This rune means "Lake," and those branded by it enjoy augmented defense.
Great volumes of water serve as a bulwark guarding sleep, and an augur of the eldritch Truth.
Overcome this hindrance, and seek what is yours.

Dissipating Lake is a Caryll Rune in Bloodborne.


Dissipating Lake Effects

  • Increases Bolt defense. Bolt Damage Reduction
  • Versions: +5% / +7% / +10%
  • Increases in Bolt defenses are visible in the menu
  • Runes stack additively, with a system of diminishing returns.
  • When a rune stacks, its effect is reduced by 10% of "what's already there".

      10% Dissipating Lake Rune05 Jul 2016 14:44  

      I made a dungeon today that had this rune in the first layer, before the boss. Fetid Lower Loran Chalice Dungeon. Chalice Glyph 97zvbb6v I am still exploring the rest of the dungeon, but this rune has eluded me for too long. I thought I'd share the info! :)

        7% is in Ailing Loran, 10% is in Lower Ailing Loran05 Jul 2016 14:44  

        Topic. Edited the wiki to reflect this truth; before, it merely said "Chalice Dungeon?" for the 10% rune, and the 7% rune was mislabeled as belonging to Lower Ailing Loran (when in fact that's where the 10% version is found).

          Lower Ailing Loran Root, Glyph: kkqmduet Layer One in optional room before the boss. There is also an Uncanny Burial Blade earlier in another optional room, but I have not as of now explored the rest of this dungeon.
