S Tier

Votive Offering of a Hopeful Mother

  • Increases resistance to all elemental damage.

Having resistance to all elemental damage is a powerful tool, as many of the enemies you encounter can dish out massive amounts of these damage types. There are Beads that greatly increase a single elemental resistance, but this Bead gives you a touch of defense against them all.

Embossed Rat Skull

  • Significantly increases Martyrdom Points earned.

Martyrdom Points are a crucial currency in Blasphemous 2, allowing you to upgrade your three weapons. This Bead increases the rate at which you find them, thus allowing you to upgrade your weapons more efficiently. This Bead never left my Rosary, and I recommend it.

Scratched Face from the Canvas

  • Significantly increases resistance to Mystical damage.

The Scratched Face from the Canvas is the best Rosary Bead to protect you from Mystical damage. With the increased resistance from this Bead, you can withstand more attacks from Mystical enemies.

Compass of the Stranded

  • Significantly increases resistance to Miasma damage.

Like the Scratched Face from the Canvas, this Rosary Bead will greatly protect you from Miasma damage. Using this Bead against enemies with this damage type will save your health and keep you from restarting.

Imprint of Scalopendra

  • Significantly increases resistance to Fire damage.

Imprint of Scalopendra is another Rosary Bead that provides resistance to Fire damage but with the greatest bonus. When encountering numerous fire-based enemies, I recommend equipping this Bead to reduce some of the damage.

Votive Offering Claimed by Rust

  • Significantly increases elemental resistance.

When it comes to defensive Beads, the Votive Offering Claimed by Rust is one of the best. It provides resistance to all elements, which can be combined with individual elemental resistance Rosary Beads for more protection.

Sphere Kissed by the Storm

  • Significantly increases resistance to Lightning damage.

For facing Lightning-based enemies, the Sphere Kissed by the Storm is the go-to Bead. It offers the greatest resistance to Lightning damage and makes the other Beads with the same perk obsolete.

Pewter Tears

  • Significantly increases resistance to all physical damage.

The Pewter Tears Rosary Bead is the best choice for reducing physical damage. With the Pewter Tears equipped, you will take less damage when struck by enemies that use physical attacks, which just may save your life.

Chisel-Engraved Wounds

  • Emits a ghostly sound when approaching hidden corners.

The Chisel-Engraved Wounds is a must for completionists. This Rosary Bead will emit a noise when you are near hidden and secret pathways. With this Bead, you can identify secret routes and ensure you collect everything in the game or at least have an easier time.

Obulus of Proximo

  • Significantly increases the number of Tears of Atonements earned.

Tears of Atonement are crucial for purchasing Rosary Beads, quest items, and more. Equipping the Obulus of Proximo ensures you get the most of this currency and purchase all items sold by merchants in Blasphemous 2.

A Tier

Salt-covered Spear Point

  • Increases resistance to all physical attacks.

Physical damage is unavoidable, so having this Bead helps keep you healthy. Physical damage includes a lot of enemy attacks and traps in Blasphemous 2, so this will protect you from many dangers. Combining this with the Votive Offering of a Hopeful Mother ensures you have plenty of damage resistance.

Bead of Whimsical Essence

  • Increases resistance to Mystical damage.

The Bead of Whimsical Essence is a stronger version of the Broken Bell and provides greater resistance to Mystical damage. I recommend swapping to this Bead when in areas containing enemies and bosses that inflict Mystical damage to increase your longevity.

Deformed Rat Skull

  • Slightly increases Martyrdom Points earned.

This Bead is a lesser version of the Embossed Rat Skull and gives slightly fewer Martyrdom Points. It is still a great Bead to use, as it will help you upgrade your weapons quickly. Just be ready to swap this out for the upgraded version once you collect it.

Earring of Regret

  • Increases resistance to Lightning damage.

The Earring of Regret is an enhanced version of the Vitrified Lightning Bolt. Both increase your resistance to Lightning damage, but the Earring of Regret provides more, making it the superior version. Keep this Bead on hand when facing enemies with Lightning attacks.

Scorched Lily

  • Increases resistance to Fire damage.

With the Scorched Lily, you gain increased resistance to Fire damage, making it a stronger version of the Lips of the Golden Mask. When facing off against enemies with Fire attacks, this Bead will protect you and prevent some damage.

Ill-fated Cord

  • Increases resistance to Miasma damage.

Like many Beads, the Ill-fated Cord provides resistance to a type of damage. With this Bead equipped, you gain increased resistance to Miasma damage, making it perfect against enemies using this damage type. The Ill-fated Cord is the better version of the Perforated Liar's Tongue.

Price of Blood

  • Slightly increases Tears of Atonement earned.

Like the Rat Skull's, the Price of Blood increases the rate at which you gain a type of currency. Tears of Atonement are the currency used at Cvstodia's various merchants, so having the Price of Blood equipped to get more is incredibly helpful.

Scratched Lead Sphere

  • Slightly increases resistance to all physical damage.

The Scratched Lead Sphere is a lesser version of the Salt-covered Spear Point. Still, having resistance to physical damage will go a long way and prevent some damage until you get the better Bead.

Votive Offering of the Miserable

  • Slightly increases resistance to all elemental damage.

The Votive Offering of the Miserable is the weaker version of the Votive Offering of the Hopeful Mother. It provides a slight resistance to all elemental damage, making it helpful in most situations. Still, it is replaced by the upgraded version when you receive it.

Concentrated Sphere of Guilt

  • Significantly reduces the amount of Guilt the Penitent One drops upon death.

B Tier

Vitrified Lightning Bolt

  • Slightly increases resistance to Lightning damage.

The Vitrified Lightning Bolt provides slight resistance to Lightning damage, but a better version exists. Once you acquire that Bead, this one becomes obsolete.

Perforated Liar's Tongue

  • Slightly increases resistance to Miasma damage.

The Perforated Liar's Tongue should hold you over until you acquire the better version of this Bead. With it equipped, you gain a slight resistance to Miasma damage.

Broken Bell

  • Slightly increases resistance to Mystical damage.

The Broken Bell is a Bead that provides slight resistance to Mystical damage. Like others of this type, a stronger version exists that will eventually replace this on your Rosary.

Lips of the Golden Mask

  • Slightly increases resistance to Fire damage.

The Lips of the Golden Mask is another Bead providing elemental resistance, this time against Fire damage. Once again, you'll likely only use this until you get the better version.

Imperfect Sphere of Guilt

  • Slightly reduces the amount of Guilt the Penitent One drops upon death.

C Tier

Senior Embroiderer's Thimble

  • Slightly reduces damage from traps and falls.

I can't recommend using the Senior Embroiderer's Thimble unless you are bad at platforming. The reduced damage from traps and fall damage almost never helped me, making this Bead obsolete.

Miniature Pincushion

  • Reduces damage from traps and falls.

The Miniature Pincushion is yet another Rosary Bead that lessens the damage taken from traps and falling. And like the other Bead, I do not recommend using this one.
