Rune Workshop Tool

The Rune Workshop Tool is a Key Item in Bloodborne.


In-Game Description

Runesmith Caryll, student of Byrgenwerth, transcribed the inhuman utterings of the Great Ones into what are now called Caryll Runes.
The hunter who retrieves this workshop tool can etch Caryll Runes into their mind to attain their wondrous strength.
Provost Willem would have been proud of Caryll's Runes, as they do not rely upon blood in any measure.


The Rune Workshop Tool can be found on a corpse in the room accessible via a staircase near the Witch's Abode Lamp (after defeating The Witch of Hemwick).


It unlocks the ability to equip Caryll Runes at the Memory Altar.


  • It is entirely possible to play the game without ever picking up this item. It simply makes combat easier.
  • This item leaves the player's inventory should a new playthrough begin.


  • It is possible that the corpse where this item is found is that of Caryll. However, it makes no sense why Caryll would wear the Yharnam Hunter Set. Therefore, it seems more plausible that a hunter from the original workshop might have found it somehow and was caught with it.
  • It resembles a branding iron, with the symbol of the Hunter's Mark/Hunter rune.
