Items in Bloodborne are found in game either on bodies, dropped from slain enemies, sold by merchants, through trade with insight, or from chests. There are several types of items, classified by their purpose, quantity and usage method. A projectile is different from ammunition in that its independent from any weapon slot, for example.

        With arcane items that act more accordingly with spells, should there be a unique tab for them? Also, a user called Lhox has uploaded footage of most of the items to Youtube.

                      Should there be a notes section for this page? Blue Elixers shorten NPC visual range considerably. I've been able to bolt past whole sections of the game without causing aggro. I've also stood still in patrol paths only to be spotted by monsters. The in-game description is neglecting this information.

                        Hello guys, i was wondering what will happen to the chalices after i go to ng+ ? Will they go away and i will have to start over ? I already know that they will not scale in difficulty with ng+ ( thats good news) .. So what will happen ?

                        • dungeonsi found one in the chalice dungeons and you can propose to queen of the vilebloods but she refused. Haven't found any other use for it yet but when i got it it was at the end of the game and all other npc's were dead or gone

                          • Where should we put them? In the game, it puts them under consumables, but for some reason we've got 'em scattered all across the pages here. Do ya think we should just make a second table under the consumables tab that'll host them for easy reference?
