To defeat the Yharnam, Pthumerian Queen you need to reach the final layer of the Great Pthumerian Ihyll Chalice Dungeon. In order to do this you must obtain the following:

  • **Pthumeru Chalice** (dropped by the Blood-starved Beast in Old Yharnam)
  • **Ailing Loran Chalice** (dropped by Amygdala)
  • **Great Isz Chalice Dungeon** (dropped by Ebrietas, Daughter of the Cosmos in the Altar of Despair)
Once you have the above you'll need to create a Chalice Dungeons by heading to any of the tombstones in Hunter's Dream and select the chalice of your choice.

Chalice Dungeons are optional dungeons that require the player to collect certain Materials to create them and are made up of multiple "layers", each with a different boss. The basic dungeons, created with normal chalices, are standard dungeons that are the same for each person, while Root Chalices are randomly generated.

  1. Select the Pthumeru Chalice and defeat the Layer 3 boss (Watchdog of the Old Lords) to receive the Central Pthumeru Chalice .

  2. Select the Central Pthumeru Chalice and defeat the Layer 3 boss (Pthumerian Descendent) to receive the Lower Pthumeru Chalice .

  3. Select the Lower Pthumeru Chalice and defeat the Layer 4 boss (Bloodletting Beast) to receive the Defiled Chalice .

If you need any additional Materials to create the Chalice Dungeons you can generally find them in the previous Chalice Dungeon.

  1. In order to create the Defiled Chalice Dungeon you’ll likely need Bastard of Loran x2 and Arcane Haze x22 . The Bastard of Lorans can be found in the Ailing Loran Chalice Dungeon, while the Arcane Hazes can be extracted from any Materials with the Workshop Haze Extractor, which is found in the Lower Pthumeru Chalice Dungeon.

  2. Select the Defiled Chalice and defeat the Layer 3 boss (Amygdala) to receieve the Great Pthumeru Ihyll Chalice .

In order to create the Great Pthumeru Ihyll Chalice Dungeon you’ll need Red Jelly x4 and a Living String.

  1. There are two Red Jellys located on the Lecture Building 1F, but in order to obtain the other two you will need to farm the Great Isz Chalice Dungeon. Select the Great Isz Chalice and reach Layer 3 to find the Red Jelly x2 in the room at the end of the hall with the falling boulder.

  2. The Living String can be obtained by defeating the Brain of Mensis in the Nightmare of Menis (see the walkthrough section for how to find the Brain of Mensis).

  3. Select the Great Pthumeru Ihyll Chalice and defeat the Layer 3 boss (Yharnam, Pthumerian Queen) to obtain this trophy.
