Oedon Writhe

Oedon Writhe is a Caryll Rune in Bloodborne.


In-Game Description

A Caryll rune that transcribes inhuman sounds.
"Writhe" sees a subtle mucous in the warmth of blood, and acknowledges visceral attacks as one of the darker hunter techniques. Visceral attacks restore Quicksilver Bullets.
Human or no, the oozing blood is a medium of the highest grade, and the essence of the formless Great One, Oedon. Both Oedon, and his inadvertent worshippers, surreptitiously seek the precious blood.


A "Liaison" rune. Visceral attacks restore QS Bullets.


  • Useful for most players, but particularly useful for Arcane builds, as it will allow players to make frequent use of high cost Hunter Tools.
  • Synergizes well with the Blood Rapture rune, which grants health upon a visceral attack.
  • There is a sort of bug when using this rune against the Living Failures. Since the boss can multiply into 4 different enemies, upon a successful visceral attack on one of them, it will count as if the player had done that attack against the four of them at once, netting 4 times over the regular reward of bullets. This means that if players have the best version of Oedon Writhe and perform a single visceral attack on the Living Failures (while there are 4 of them), the reward will be a whopping 12 Quicksilver Bullets.


  • It is one of the two Oedon runes, the other being Formless Oedon. The symbols of both Oedon Runes appear to be oozing blood from within.
  • It would seem that this rune appears to allow to actually extract quicksilver from the victim's body, as if all these enemies do have it in their blood.
  • The rune almost seems to represent a centipede or bug that "writhes" both through its name and its design. All of this while seemingly describing the blood as something dirty and thick, like mud.
  • It is strange how Iosefka and Adella drop these runes. Almost as if their blood is tainted somehow.
