Walkthrough

Iosefka's clinic is the starting area for all characters in Bloodborne. It is a kind of tutorial level, but unlike the Souls series, the player does not start with a weapon in this area. Dying in this area takes you to Hunter's Dream which will then trigger a lamp to appear in this area.

  1. You awake in a clinic on a table and there are two doors. The door behind you is locked for now so look to your right to find a note with your first bit of lore: Seek Paleblood to transcend the hunt.
  2. Continue through the door and down the stairs. There are developer messenger notes here telling you how to attack with R1 and lock and unlock onto enemies with R3.
  3. Through the next set of doors there is a Wolf Beast feeding off some unfortunate soul with a giant pool of blood on the floor. If you're feeling confident, you can try defeating it by smacking it with your fists. Every hit will stagger the Wolf Beast so keep that in mind. If you manage to defeat him, your prize is 3 additional blood vials and never having to deal with him again. If you choose to avoid the Wolf Beast, he will still go after you so you need to be quick in the next room.
  4. If you ran past or defeated the Wolf Beast, turn to your left in the next room to find 2 Blood Vials. If the Wolf Beast killed you, don't worry about it and come back with your weapon to kill him more easily and comfortably claim your blood vials. This room also contains a developer note explaining how to use blood vials to heal.
  5. Head up the stairs and open the door to find yourself in a graveyard. Look straight ahead to find 10 Quicksilver Bullets on the ground. The gate to your right is locked for now so head left and open the doors to Central Yharnam.

Central Yharnam

Walkthrough

This section is only applicable the first time you awaken at the 1st Floor Sickroom lamp.

  1. Upon awakening at the 1st Floor Sickroom lamp, turn around and notice that the door up the stairs that you first came from is now closed. Approach the door and talk to Iosefka who has now closed the door to keep the beasts and hunters out. She will give you Iosefka's Blood Vial as an apology for not letting you back in.
  2. You can continue talking to Iosefka for some additional dialogue but she will not give you anything else. However, if you use her blood vial, she will give you another upon reloading the area, as well as some additional dialogue.
  3. After your talk with Iosefka, head back to the lamp and down the stairs. Now is the time to kill the Wolf Beast and grab your Blood Vials and Quicksilver Bullets if you haven't already and head into Central Yharnam.
