Prayers in Blasphemous are categorized as magical spells. Prayers are magical abilities that provide both offensive and defensive effects such as conjuring magic-based attacks to damage enemies and bosses, while some prayers that are conjured apply buffs and effects to The Penitent One that can help in certain situations, especially in battle.

In order to use a Prayer, players will need to collect and fill the Fervor Bar by attacking enemies and bosses with the Mea Culpa or by finishing off an enemy with an execution. Prayers can be obtained as loot found at specified areas of a location, given by NPCs, as quest rewards, boss drops, and can also be purchased from Merchants. Players can find a full list of all the prayers that can be found throughout the game on this page.

Each time The Penitent One dies in Blasphemous, he will be consumed by Guilt. This is represented by thorny vines entangled at the Fervor indicator. You will see the Fervor bar at the top right, below the HP bar. Depending on the Guilt that The Penitent One is carrying, his Fervor will be limited and will affect the number of Tears of Atonement that he can collect. To make sure you can get the most out of your experience in Blasphemous, make sure to manage your Fervor and Guilt to allow The Penitent One to cast Prayers or Abilitiesin the Battlefield.

How to Rid of Guilt in Blasphemous

  • Go back to the last death location and recover Guilt Fragment
  • Interact with Statues of Confessors by paying Tears of Atonement
  • Defeat a Boss to remove all Guilt
