Ritual Blood

Material used in a Holy Chalice rite.

One of the basic ingredients used to satiate a Holy Chalice is this incoagulable blood.

When all is melted in blood, all is reborn.

Ritual Blood is an item in Bloodborne that can be combined with other Ritual Materials to create a Chalice Dungeon.

      Don't take these glyphs for granted, i think they "expire" with time, or might be misspeled, go look on Reddit or something

        Ritual blood 2 can be farmed from the first chalice in layer one from the snatcher. Drop down and go through the tunnel near the ladders to get to him

            I like how no one mentions the skulls coming out of these things, as if the blood possesses the soul of some poor guy(or maybe several) who are about to be turned into a gateway to an eldritch location... maybe to never exist in their current plane of existence again.

                I utterly HATED this part of the game. The fact that you don't initially find enough Ritual Blood (4) while completing the Ailing Loran Chalice run in order to open the Defiled Chalice is a travesty to game design. This should have been fixed with subsequent patches, but now I see that it hasn't. You should NEVER have to farm anything in order to progress through the actual game. Absurd waste of time.

                  Ok but if you're going to make the same item but on different "power LVL" you need to *****ing anote them. Their all called blood ritual wtf man sometimes I think bloodborne was rushed out...

                  • Ritual Blood 5 bought from messengers in NG+ without root chalices or offerings.17 Jul 2016 07:51  

                    Ritual blood 5 is incorrect. My friend only has Lower Pthumeru and he can buy Ritual Blood 5 from messengers. He has never opened a root chalice.

                      You guys got any good seeds with some Ritual Blood 4 on it? It seems that it's one of the rarest seeing how hard it is to find them on the Depth 3 dungeons
