Bloodborne's Cruelest Joke

Bloodborne is a punk. A savage, brutal punk—and I’m not just saying this because of all the challenging encounters with werewolves and tentacle monsters.

As we’ve chronicled in the past, Souls games do have a sense of humor. A twisted sense of humor, but they have a funny bone just the same. Bloodborne is no different!

(Spoilers for Chalice Dungeons ahead!)

As Bloodborne players know, the game offers an optional randomly-generated dungeon mode called Chalice Dungeons. Chalice Dungeons are some of the toughest portions of Bloodborne, and if players can survive them, they are rewarded handsomely. There’s some rad gear inside of Chalice Dungeons. There are also some more troll-like items inside of Chalice Dungeons, hilariously enough.

As Kill Screen’s Chris Breault points out points out, one of the items you can find inside of Chalice Dungeons is called a “Ring of Betrothal.” Here’s the item description, in case you’re curious:

Turns out, you can use this item to propose to a character named Annalise Queen of the Vilebloods:

But here is what happens if you try proposing:

Ouch, lady. It’s not like players had to risk everything to get you such an awesome ring or anything. But, more seriously, it just wouldn’t be Bloodborne if she said yes now would it? Besides, she has a point:

You can badger her about it, though. In which case she will shut you down again, hard:

You can watch the rejection here, in this footage by uzl36:

It’s okay. We all know Eileen is the best Bloodborne waifu anyway. That said, if you’d like to know how to get to the dungeon that drops the ring yourself, check out Kill Screen’s article. Who knows. Maybe you’ll find another character you can propose to.

I know I’m going to get lambasted for this, but what’s the easiest/cheapest class to play in Bloodborne? I loved Dark Souls and Dark Souls 2, but I played as a magic user. Yes, I suck. But I’m in it to have fun, not prove a point.

Is there anything similar in Bloodborne? I know there’s no magic user, but I haven’t been able to find any sort of thing even close to easy mode.
