Great One's Wisdom is a consumable item in Bloodborne.

Description

In-Game Description

Fragments of the lost wisdom of the Great Ones, beings that might be described as gods.
Use to gain Insight.
At Byrgenwerth, Master Willem had an epiphany: "We are thinking on the basest of planes. What we need, are more eyes."

Availability

  • Looted from corpses around the game and Chalice Dungeons (very rare to actually find).
  • There are no enemies in the game that drop this item. This means that it cannot be farmed.

Use

 Notes

  • It is good to hoard as many of these skulls as one can to then invest in the more expensive items sold at the Insight Bath Messenger.
  • There is a weaker, more common version of this item, called Madman's Knowledge.

Trivia

  • The sprites that manifests themselves from the skull, resembles slugs or invertabrate beings, similar to the Pearl Slug or Augur of Ebrietas.
  • Though it is unclear how the Hunter acquires insight from this item, it seems that if a person who dies after being "touched by the wisdom of a Great One", or "making contact with Eldritch wisdom", has its effect remain in his/her skull, even after death. And upon smashing it with the hands, the Hunter is catching a glimpse of the Cosmos itself, thus gaining Insight.
