Dishonored 2 offers a diverse and extremely varied gaming experience. Case in point: Bone Charms. These collectibles can change the way your characters interact with the world, and can be found in the game world or crafted.

There are three types of Bone Charms: Regular, Corrupted, and Black.

Interestingly, a Bone Charm can either have a positive or negative effect. You can also use Bone Charms you may have no use for to create Raw Whalebone, which can then be used to create new Bone Charms.

How To Craft Bone Charms

Bone Charm crafting is absolutely imperative to your Dishonored 2 experience. It would be crazy not to utilise it, as it would to not upgrade any ability, weapon or gadget when you have the chance. Appreciate that Bone Charms grant your character minor bonuses, so you want to be able to benefit from that as much as possible. There can be up to four positive effects for a Bone Charm, and a single negative effect if they’ve been corrupted. Interestingly, a negative, corrupt Bone Charm can be created by you without even noticing. Don’t be afraid to part with certain Bone Charms you have no use for, as this will grant you Raw Whalebone, which is used to craft more Bone Charms.

In order to craft Bone Charms, you need to activate the necessary Ability. Abilities are purchased with Runes, which can be found throughout the world and at Outsider Shrines. While you won’t be able to unlock every Ability in your first playthrough, unlocking the Bone Charm crafting ability is an absolute necessity.

Bone Charm Crafting Ability

Go to the Powers menu, and you should see the Bone Charm Crafting ability ready to learn.

Cost: 1 Rune

Bone Charm Crafting Secondary Traits

Trait Synergy

  • Cost: 3
  • Effect: This allows you to use the same trait up to four times.

 

Witch Crafting

  • Cost: 2
  • Effect: This trait significantly lowers the chance of creating a corrupted Bone Charm. If your Bone Charm is corrupted, it can have negative effects.
  • Tip: Combine with Trait Synergy for particularly powerful Bone Charms.

 

Master Crafting

  • Cost: 2
  • Effect: This trait makes it so any Bone Charm with three traits has no chance of being corrupted.

 

Craft Runes

  • Cost: 4
  • Effect: This trait allows you to convert Runes into Raw Whalebone , and vice-vera.
  • Tip: Around the half-way point of the game, you’ll notice you have a large surplus of both Runes and Raw Whalebone. Whatever you have a large excess of, convert it into the other resource. Then, use this new surplus to build the necessary Bone Charm.
