  • The Workshop is located in the Hunter's Dream, next to the fireplace.


Upgrade Menu

  • Fortify Weapons


  • Repair Weapons

  • You may use Blood Echoes to restore the durability of your weapons. Repairing may only be done at the workshop.


  • Blood Gem Fortification

  • Weapons can also be infused with Blood Gems, to further strengthen them or to add additional properties.
  • The Blood Gem Workshop Tool is needed to infuse weapons with Blood Gems.
  • Blood Gem Imprints will unlock as you upgrade the weapon. (see Fortify above)
  • Blood Gems also have to match the shape of the Imprint to be able to apply them. The Droplet variant, however, fits any shape.
  • Blood Gems are reusable. Meaning you can swap out one Gem with another, to change the properties of the weapon, without consuming the gem. This also allows you to transfer your gems between weapons.
  • Gems effects are tied to the weapon they are attached to, rather than acting as global boost to your character. i.e. damage boosting gems in your trick weapon won't affect your pistol.
