Sacred chime blessed by Caitha,
goddess of tears.
Cannot be used to cast miracles.
Caitha, the goddess of tears, is known as a
compassionate being that is with us in
times of tragedy, but some believe that she
is a demoness that guides us toward misfortune.
- Drangleic Castle treasure. After the Dragonriders fight, rest at the bonfire. Head towards the King's Passage door. Climb the ladder and drop into the room with the seven Stone Soldiers. Kill at least one of the Stone Soldiers near the Golem statue to unlock the exit. As you enter the next room, there are two chests. The chime is in the left hand chest.
- Astrologist drop.
Aux Effects Reduction
- Cannot be used to cast miracles.
- When fully upgraded, Caitha's Chime appears to be tied with a fully upgraded Chime of Want for highest dark damage and dark damage scaling. However, the "S" scaling is not equal, and the Chime of Want gives a larger bonus to dark damage than Caitha's Chime. Caitha's Chime is therefore only second in raw damage when casting hexes, but does have the highest cast speed available to chimes making it potentially better than the Chime of Want for some builds.
