Yharnam Stone


A sacred heirloom left by Yharnam, Pthumerian Queen.

The Queen lies dead, but her horrific consciousness is only asleep, and it stirs in unsettling motions.

Yharnam Stone is a Key Item in Bloodborne.

 

Yharnam Stone Usage

  • No further use than proving your accomplishment.
  • Unlocks Ritual Blood (4) from bath messengers.

 

Location

 

Notes

  • Stays in your inventory when moving to NG+
  • This item may also be there to represent the queen's immortality (Much like the Queenly Flesh dropped from Annalise). However unlike Annalise, Yharnam cannot be revived.

 

Trivia

  • One could reasonably assume that this is a so called Lithopedion, a calcified, unborn, dead fetus.

      Shouldn't someone add the fact that it can be given to the Priest in the Fishing Hamlet for additional dialogue in the japanese version of the game?

        I read the Bloodborne wiki to find out if some items have a purpose and I end up learning about the existence of calcified babies

          These lore entries are a bit incomprehensible. Of course it appears to be a calcified fetus, functional eyes is all you need to presume that much; that's not trivia, it's a matter of fact. Secondly, the item ownership merits ritual material purchasing, it's not just a trophy. Thirdly, literally nobody outright assumed you could revive Yharnam with this simply because another entirely unrelated item, conceived from entirely separate means, in the outside (non-chalice) lore, can be used to revive Annalise. Lastly, don't create or edit a page if you're tripping on lsd; misinformation or overly partial info is always worse than ignorance.

          • "No further use than proving your accomplishment."

            "Unlocks Ritual Blood (4) from bath messengers."

            So it's not actually useless. Just like the badges aren't useless.

              Yharnam stone DOES have a purpose: you can perform rituals with the materials in your storage, whereas you normally have to have them on you to do so. I just tested it and proved it.

                Lul they could at least give it a "show item" animation and the sound of crying Mergo while it plays, ik am asking for too much apparently but extra dialogue from Annalise or Willem would also be nice..

                  Notice that she’s bleeding from the abdomen? I would assume that means she committed a crime, was arrested (handcuffs), and then someone killed her baby. And the baby crying must be it’s spirit or something.

                  • Wow. Just wow. Why was sYharnam so easy? This other guy slashed at her with highly upgraded beast claws, while I backstabbed her with +10 Blade of Mercy. She never even touched me. He got hit by one of her AOE's, but got up and healed. He also got caught by her stuns, but when he did, I backstabbed her. In a way, I'm glad it wasn't hard, but kinda disappointed she went down so easily.

                      If there ever is a sequel to Bloodborne I’d love it if the game somehow could look at your save file or trophy data and have this item show up in your inventory if you got it in the first game. Then have it trigger something special in the sequel.

                        I have a feeling that this was at one time a required object for a secret side mission but was never put into effect. That or it unlocked some special gear with the messagers, perhaps even unlocked some hidden lore dialogue with an NPC, like Master Willem for example.

                          A bit disappointed the stone does nothing, but still an awesome achievement none the less. The fight was really cool, reminded me of fighting Adramelech in Castlevania COTM.

                            Sure, it does virtually nothing, but I think it primarily acts as a key to the lore itself. It makes sense that it would be the stillborn body of Mergo, and with this knowledge we can surmise that Mergo now exists only in voice--you know, just like Oedon. It also resembles the Blood Dregs, as if this is a failed attempt at producing the "Child of Blood" that Annalise desires, and it could even be the "Holy Medium" discovered by Byrgenwerth. Perhaps what the game means by "the Queen lies dead, but her horrific consciousness stirs in unsettling motions" is that Yharnam, though her body is dead, still has an attachment to the Dream through her maternal instincts, as if this object itself is what sustained her will. This is why she doesn't fight the Hunter when she's found in Mergo's Loft--she realizes she needs the Hunter to intervene in order to release Mergo from its torment. Doing so finally puts her at rest, at least until the cycle restarts, as evidenced by the way she stops weeping and bows before quietly vanishing.

                            She probably went through a lot of*****.

                              The first thought is the ghost somewhere in dungeons, which doesn't harm one and just prays at gravestone, but I'll not going to check 'cause I don't remember where.

                                It allows purchase of Ritual Blood 4 and Tomb Mold 4 at Echos messager bath for 40,000-48,000 literally no other use that I have found.

                                  i just killed the queen in ng+ with only a few early game lamps activated. when i went to the hunters dream my unseen awakening stone had turned on. it was a blank list when i looked at it. i pushed x and my game crashed. perhaps tehre is a half working trigger for the yarnham stone/queens death? has this happened to anyone else or can someone try to duplicate it?

                                    Does not change materials in dungeons. Had all the same unlocked items when i finally got the stone. Checked.

                                      Anybody try taking this to the Doll in the Abandoned Workshop? For some reason I feel that the doll there is not simply there for decoration or lore...

                                        I tried getting grabbed by the Amygdala outside the Cathedral Ward, but it did nothing other than demolish 80% of my health. However, I was only missing the nurse, Gerhman and the presence to kill before the end of the game, so maybe if it was done earlier on?

                                          "The Queen lies dead, but her horrific consciousness is only asleep" Much like Cthulhu is "dead but dreaming". Can't get enough of these Lovecraftian vibes and eldritch horror themes. Honestly hoping for more story related dlc...

                                            Another set of Chalice dungeons would be a really easy add on as DLC since it doesn't affect the main game at all and this item could be used to unlock it, since it's only recieved after beating the final Ithyll. So maybe a Depth 6 DLC? I would love it.

                                                    3 playthroughs. 2 with the stone. Wasted insight, spoke with all npc's - no dice. I'm thinking we were brilliantly trolled, or it's dlc related.

                                                      Either that or its another pendant. Still though, the item you complete the main chalice dungeons for, and its description alludes to something sleeping inside it...as if it could wake up any moment. That along with the fact the Queen is probably the most mysterious character of importance in the game all just seem to scream dlc to me.

                                                          it seems everyone down below has thoroughly gone through every possible instance to "use" this item. i highly doubt it is cut content considering it drops from a boss and not random loot. it is also highly unlikely they would pull a Lost from binding of isaac based off of the previous souls games. And as for it being the new dark souls pendent this is most likely not the case. i say this because i believe the gold pendent from Amelia is the dark souls pendent throwback even though you can actually get a gem from the gold pendent, as well as the description that makes it seem like the gold pendent has more use.

                                                            It kinda resembles the queen flesh. What if you use it at the altar, perhaps it can revive her and you can use the bethrothal ring to propose to her

                                                            • i added what i saw the stone did but this was the first time editing the pages so if someone wants to link them to their corresponding items and change the description on the other page that would be great. thanks!

                                                                Went through the whole game again, did all the additional things, and there's definitely no use for this thing yet. The fact the item says that the Queen's consciousness is only asleep, leads me to think that this item will be used for DLC access later on, to do with waking up the Queen's consciousness by using the stone.

It seems to affect several things throughout the game. I currently have max insight and am in the Ihyll Chalice Dungeon so once I get the stone I suppose that will be the first test!

So I went and finished my Ihyll Chalice and finished the Pthumerian Queen. (As I already had the trophy I was simply helping him and didn't fight her myself). Now I can buy Ritual Blood (4) and Tomb Mold (4). Hopefully this isn't the only use, but it is the only use I now know of for sure.

I have a few thoughts though. -NPC related possibly to the right of the Cathdral before they go crazy. - Old Yharnam maybe Djura. - NPC in Hemwick. -Maybe even the little girl. Pehaps the Queen is a ghost of her mother(Viola)

Maybe a gesture of good faith from FROMSOFTWARE, if you had the dedication to get through all the chalice dungeons, it'll let you access the DLC at no cost? Idk how it would work, but just thought I'd say it.

Maybe it unlocks something else after beating it...

I'll try to check it up later

I definitely see it being used in DLC. Some guy claiming to have a copy of the guide is not enough evidence for me. If, in fact, he does have a copy, show us the page that says it does nothing. Hell, when you select the item from your inventory and push X, it gives you a greyed-out drop down box with the option to either use or discard. Sorry, maybe I'm over reacting, but I worked too ***** hard for the thing to believe that it does nothing.

                                                                                                            • This thing could have been a badge that lets us buy Yharnam's outfit and sword. Now THAT would have been worthwhile! Dunno what the sword would do though... ranged version of the katana? (The blood spears Yharnam casts. We can do that but spend hp to do so.)

                                                                                                              • I didn't do any chalice dungeons until my ng+ run, and I zipped through them simply trying to get the stone for platinum. However, I have done a fair amount of chalice dungeons with the yharnam stone in my inventory, and I have never found an illusory wall; having done about 100 of them and hit tons of walls, this is a little surprising to me, since I've heard that they exist. However, I do get one or two rooms per chalice dungeon with nothing in it but a corpse with a treasure of some sort on it. I am wondering if these rooms were once possibly behind illusory walls, but the yharnam stone took all of the illusory walls down. Has anyone definitely found an illusory wall while holding the stone?

I agree it looks like a fetus, as someone below notes; I am wondering if a female character can do someting with it that a male one cannot. That also seems to me to align nicely with the thematic importance of child-bearing in the game.

Or maybe interact with the Vileblood Queen corpse with it in the inventory? (after you grab the Queenly Flesh yoou can still interact with her remains)

That's what the guide says: "A trophy item obtained after defeating Queen Yharnam at the bottom of Pthumerian Ihyll, the Yharnam Stone save no purpose other than as a testament to your victory." So, there you have it.

Also let us not forget the broken pendant.

Actually does she die when we kill her in the dungeon or is she already dead ? Because she appears in 2 different forms throughout the game, so i'm thinking of taking the stone to her grave so that some ***** happens ??? Or maybe not ?
