TransformationBar

The Transformation bar.

Beasthood is a stat in Bloodborne.

Mechanics

Transformation status can be obtained by consuming a Beast Blood Pellet or using the transformed version of Beast Claw, and is further enhanced by some attires.

When Transformed, a bonus to physical attack is received, with a penalty to all defenses. The Transformation bar will fill up as attacking persists. The higher the bar, the higher the attack bonus and defense penalty.

  • The Insight value a player has will directly decrease his/her Beasthood bar.
  • Slower, heavier attacks fill the Transformation bar faster than a flurry of lighter attacks.
  • Hitting multiple enemies will increase the bar faster.

Levels of Beasthood

The Transformation bar's length is dependent on how high the Beasthood stat is, and the Beasthood buff will cap at a value of 300. Further increases to the Beasthood bar will only aid in keeping it at that capped value, until it virtually starts declining once more.

  • 1 Beasthood- +20% damage / -20% defense
  • 25 Beasthood- +30% damage / -30% defense
  • 50 Beasthood- +40% damage / -40% defense
  • 100 Beasthood- +50% damage / -50% defense
  • 200 Beasthood- +60% damage / -60% defense
  • 300 Beasthood- +70% damage / -80% defense

Notes

Trivia

  • The fact that Insight will decrease Beasthood, from a lore perspective, makes sense as Insight is seen as a pursuit of knowledge, while Beasthood is the submission to beastly instinct.
  • When players enter the Beasthood state through Beast Blood Pellets or Beast Claw, they gain a curious, aura one that resembles both steam and sweat in a sickly pale color.
