Fading 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.

Fading Lake is a Caryll Rune in Bloodborne.


Fading Lake Effects

  • Increases Fire defense. Fire DMG Reduction
  • Versions: +5% / +7% / +10%
  • Increases in Fire 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".
  • For instance if Fire defense is already 200, then the increase will be reduced by 20 Fire defense.
  • +10% Fire defense = +100 Fire defense, which will become +80 if Fire defense is already 200.

      I'm still not shure how it works, the glyphs works in any of the gravestones? Or is a specific one for the glyph?

            +7% - 5njfipyu

            Layer 1, at the end of the first side-section before the lamp. Very few enemies in the way, with the only real threat being a Bone Ash Hunter so its rather easy to reach. The same dungeon also holds a Lost Rifle Spear in Layer 4, inside a sarcophagus. I'll try to leave it up, so I hope it helps.

                Before, the 9d6vhapi glyph was listed as containing both the +7% and +10% versions of the runes. Obviously, this isn't possible - and I can confirm that the dungeon actually DOES contain the +7% version. I've updated the page to reflect this.

                  2ufsqve2 Glyph is for real. Fading Lake +10% in first bonus room, literally 2 enemies to fight and the rune is yours.
