Lifeblood Cocoon.png

A Lifeblood Cocoon is a large sac of Lifeblood found in various places throughout Hallownest. When struck, it spawns 2-5 Lifeseeds, these Lifeseeds are killed and absorbed for Lifeblood Masks.

Lifeblood Cocoons will respawn if the player gets hurt and loses all remaining Lifeblood Masks on hand or if the player rests at a Bench. All current Lifeblood Masks will be lost upon entering any Dream.

The location of hidden cocoons may be hinted by blue butterfly plants growing near the path leading up to them. A Cocoon Pin may be purchased from Iselda for Geo.png100, which reveals the locations of all discovered Lifeblood Cocoons.

After completing any Pantheon in Godhome with any amount of bindings active, notches will glow above the door to the left side of the entrance to the Hall of Gods. Each notch corresponds to a unique binding completed (doing a binding that has already been completed before will not count towards opening the door), and the minimum amount needed to open the door is 8. Using the Dream Nail on the blue dreamcatcher will add Lifeblood Cocoons to every bench in the Pantheons. The amount of Lifeseeds that spawn from the cocoons depends on the number of bindings completed:

  • Completing 8 bindings - 3 Lifeseeds per Cocoon.
  • Completing 4 more bindings (12 total) - 4 Lifeseeds per Cocoon.
  • Completing 4 more bindings (16 total) - 5 Lifeseeds per Cocoon.



  • Prior to the Lifeblood Icon.png Lifeblood update, all lifeblood cocoons contained a random amount of lifeseeds from 2 to 4.
  • Prior to the Voidheart Edition, the lifeblood cocoons in Pantheons gave one less lifeseed.
