The Empty Phantasm Shell is a Hunter Tool in Bloodborne.


In-Game Description

Empty invertebrate shell that is said to be a familiar of a Great One. The Healing Church has discovered a great variety of invertebrates, or phantasms, as they are called.
Shells with slime still harbour arcane power, and can be rubbed on weapons to imbue them with their strength.


  • Byrgenwerth, go inside the building, climb the stairs, climb the ladder, and the very top there is a chest, the item lies within it


The Empty Phantasm Shell is a Hunter Tool which acts as a buff to imbue a non-infused weapon with 80 Arcane damage for 3 Quicksilver Bullets, which lasts for a minute.


  • Particularly useful against Pthumerian opponents.


  • The buffed weapon will emanate a pale blue light that will emit a strange ringing sound.
  • Despite being called a shell, it seems as if it were sort of cocoon or exosqueleton that housed the familiar. Most likely a slug.
  • The appendages draped across the Madman Garb resemble this shell.
