Side Quests in Bloodborne are optional objectives that can be triggered as specific events have progressed. This is an overview of all side quests ordered by the events you need to solve them completely.

Did anyone knew that if you use the hug of the beast caryll rune and the beast claws you will get free blood peblets and your beast claws will have different and better attacks than the beast claws with no rune.
WARNING: You will need to kill Laurence, The First Vicar to get the rune.(The boss is on dlc.)
Sheeehs imagine doing all this in one life, It costed me about 4 rebirth to do all characters; have anyone notice that everyone you help dies, except for the people in cathedral ward if you don't send the afflicted beggar. Right now I am doing forbidden woods.
so i never got a vile of blood from iosefka, i dont think ive even met or talked to her yet. Ive been through old yarnham, cathedral ward, defeated Father G, cleric beast and Djura. Can I go back and find her and start that quest or is it too late?
Do side quests get ruined if you kill the area boss first like in dark souls 3?
thanks alot this helped me in many ways
Man, this whole wiki is such a mess. Wrong info and broken links everywhere and if you click on "Patches" in the "Nightmare Frontier entered" entry it even sends you to the page for the patches that have been released for this game. Great job.
What about the confederate’s quest line?
iosefka should probably be listed here?
I've done testing and yes Djura will stay hostile if you kill his partner below. Didn't want to edit for courtesy sake.
Why are the dlc side quests not listed?
