Blessed by Joni, the kindly heretic. Transfigures vital fluids into blue lifeblood.

The bearer will have a healthier shell and can take more damage, but they will not be able to heal themselves by focusing SOUL.

Usefulness

This charm is easily acquired early game if the player knows where to go, though the restrictiveness of having only Lifeblood Masks (which cannot be healed with Focus) means the player must be careful to not take too much damage. In addition, the player will not even be able to equip this charm until they acquire at least 1 more Notch.

As with Lifeblood Heart and Lifeblood Core, Joni's Blessing is best used in a Spell-focused build where the player can use SOUL to cast spells rather than heal. As such, it is best saved for later in the game when the player has acquired more Notches.

How to Acquire

Found in Joni's Repose in Howling Cliffs.

Charm Interactions

Hiveblood

Hiveblood

Hiveblood can regenerate Lifeblood masks granted by Joni's Blessing, though it takes twice as long (24 seconds). (In all other cases, Hiveblood does not affect Lifeblood masks.)
Fury of the Fallen
Fury of the Fallen
Lifeblood masks from Joni's Blessing are not treated like normal lifeblood masks, and instead are treated like actual masks. Due to this, Fury of the Fallen will only trigger when the player has one mask remaining.
Grubberfly's Elegy

Grubberfly's Elegy

Lifeblood masks from Joni's Blessing are not treated like normal lifeblood masks, and instead are treated like actual masks. This makes Grubberfly's Elegy only trigger when the player is at the maximum amount of masks.
Fragile Heart

Fragile Heart

The masks granted by Fragile Heart are also converted into Lifeblood masks. This usually leads to gaining 3 extra masks.
Lifeblood Heart

Lifeblood Heart

Stacks with both Lifeblood Heart and Lifeblood Core.
Lifeblood Core

Lifeblood Core

Stacks with both Lifeblood Heart and Lifeblood Core.
Shaman Stone

Shaman Stone

Since Shaman Stone is used in spell-casting-focused builds, it is good to combine it with Joni's Blessing in battles where healing is difficult or impossible.

Trivia

  • If the charm is equipped, Lifeseeds will no longer run away from The Knight.
  • Technically, this charm reduces max HP to 1, then takes what max HP would be otherwise and multiplies it by 1.4, adding that many Joni masks on top of the 1. Hence: 40% + 1.
  • If the player dies, the HUD displays a single empty mask, representing a maximum of 1 HP for regular mask. This affects the player's Shade health and will render it to die in one hit.
