      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.)

          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?

            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.
