Short Ritual Root Chalice


One of the root chalices that breaks various seals in the Old Labyrinth.

The glass chalice, when full, is used in a short ritual to quickly create and join a Chalice Dungeon (not for use in a ritual using standard materials).

Short rituals are conducted at the makeshift altar.

Short Ritual Root Chalice is a Chalice Item in Bloodborne. You can create this chalice dungeon by combining the materials listed below at the Makeshift Altar in Hunter's Dream. This Chalice is used to quick search Dungeons as a guest, host or invader.


Short Ritual Root Chalice Information





  • Used to Quick Search for Dungeons online as a guest, host or invader.
  • Before the 1.04 patch, you could join any root chalice dungeon, even if you haven't gained access to them yourself. After the 1.04 patch was released, it limited the dungeons that you could join to just the ones you have access to.

      For example, if I want to join someone in Loren, will just simply having the correct chalice work or do I have to conduct a ritual with it first?

        So if I understood this right: Even if you have a password set up so you can have a friend use this chalice to help you out, he can't help you as long as he doesn't have the same chalices as you?

          I'm so tired of dungeon scrubs who use the damn Beckoning Bell , then die either as soon as I enter or even worse , they die as the chalice forms before it even sucks me in . I literally stop playing most nights because of it . If you're not experienced or just plain not good and need summons to help , at least wait a few minutes for them and stop wasting peoples time who are trying to help you please

            I am playing on the most current patch and this was dropped for me from a boss in a chalice dungeon. Don't remember if it was Lower Pthumeru or Lower Hintertomb but I definitely did not buy it in the Insight Shop for 10 insight.

              I'm not sure which patch people are talking about here but I was doing random co-op searches in December 2017 and having no trouble at all getting summoned. I'm sure a lot of people were playing too since it was the holiday, but still.

                This thing may be the most useful coop oriented item in the entire franchise imo. I have done all chalices, and when i want to do some coop, i just go for coop search and i get summoned generally in no time. Because you do not know where you are being teleported, its a "surprise" every time. I wish something like this would exist for the entire main game too. I mean, this is fantastic, i ring my bell once and have a dozen fixed chalices with many floors and quite a few root chalices i can get summoned too... For someone who loves doing coop, it does not get any better than this really...

                    I don't know what the hell all these kids are complaining about. Here I am in late 2017 quick searching coop for dungeons to farm insight, finding beckoning bells every 1-3 minutes. Pro tip kids. Set your networking to worldwide and turn your passwords off lol.

                      Very useless chalice05 Jul 2016 14:35  

                      This is a chalice that used for quick searching the dungeons to play Co-op or PvP or a random single player dungeon. You would think that this chalice would be used by people to play PvP or co-op, but no. I have been waiting for 1 hour to play PvP with this chalice and no luck (I'm level 94). Basically, this chalice is practically useless, don't bother trying to get it. If you want to play random dungeons, just pick one from the list or create your own. As stated, PvP and co-op are dead with this chalice.

                              Short Ritual ROOT Chalice?05 Jul 2016 14:35  

                              I've been using this, and, it seems to be only summoning me into the normal chalices, not any root chalices. It also seems that I am only getting into chalices that I have already completed. Does anybody know how this works exactly?

                                So do I have to have a chalice set up at a gravestone to randomly join from short chalice or do I at least have had made the chalice once?
