A Blood Vial is a consumable item in Bloodborne.


In-Game Description

Special blood used in ministration. Restores HP.
Once a patient has had their blood ministered, a unique but common treatment in Yharnam, successive infusions recall the first, and are all the more invigorating for it.
No surprise that most Yharnamites are heavy users of blood.



Blood Vials restore 40% of a player's total health upon use.


Upon using a Blood Vial, players are vulnerable to a parry while the health hasn't been restored.


  • Blood Vials are automatically replenished (taken from storage) after dying or returning to the Hunter's Dream.
  • The Communion runes can increase the carry capacity of Blood Vials. The three best runes will, in total, add 12, allowing players to carry a whopping 32 Blood Vials.
  • The Radiance rune boosts healing performed through Blood Vials by 2%.


  • Blood Vials are essentially healing potions, and they replace Estus from Dark Souls, instead prefering a style of healing more akin to the Moon Grasses from Demon's Souls.
  • The Old Hunter Trousers' description mentions a superstition that "beast blood crept up the right leg", how curious that statement is, seeing as players always inject Blood Vials in their right leg.
  • Yharnamites use Blood Vial and Pungent Blood Cocktail on a daily basis. Package of Blood Vials can be seen through out the game. They were delivered to the town much like dairy product.
  • The description states that these vials are used in blood ministration, The fact that Yharnamites still carry this is somewhat condradicting to their “Death to the Minister!” dialouge
