Once the Bleed meter is full, the target's HP will be damaged by 200. It will also reduce the maximum stamina of the target to 75% for 5 to 10 seconds.

Player Methods of inflicting Bleed

If you intend to wield a weapon that inflicts bleed, it's important to be aware of your Bleed ATK Bonus stat.

Your Bleed ATK Bonus does NOT affect the total amount of damage the bleed will do; it only increases the amount of bleed buildup you will inflict per hit.

Increasing Bleed bonus

Dexterity and Faith increase the Bleed ATK Bonus stat.

Steady Hand McDuff is able to imbue your weapon with bleed with a Bleed Stone after you've given him the Dull Ember.

Shadow Gauntlets and Crest of Blood increase bleed damage on weapons that have either innate bleed or are infused with it:

  • Weapons with innate Bleed get 50 points of extra damage.
  • Weapons infused with Bleed get 25 points of extra damage.
  • Weapons with innate Bleed AND infused with Bleed get 60 points of extra damage.
  • These items stack, so wearing both of them and using a Bleed-infused weapon grants 50 points of extra damage.
