      If you guys noticed He says "heavens she was already dead" But if you kill him he says forgive me dear(forgive me mother) he also says I'm actually glad she's dead his mother did not accept what he did. He wanted to be sorry but she already died long ago

        I feel like this isn't a very good item, because Greirat doesn't tell you anything about it. Yes, it is labeled as her bone, but from an in universe point of view it's just a bone to us, because he never told us anything about it...

          Do you need to get the ring of sacrifice from Pickle-Pee in exchange for this item to complete the "Master of Rings" achievement?

                Was looking all over my inventory and saves for this thing. Was playing a character from like a year ago (diff. save file) and had cleared abyss but could NOT find this thing. Swore I hadn't sold it to the crow (and no gesture anyway), went back to the location, was completely stumped. Nowhere in my inventory.

                For some reason just completely forgot about storage lol. For some reason I stashed it there and never gave it to Greirat right away. Anyway if some of you guys can't find it or think it's glitched, just double check you didn't throw it in there.

                I stopped using storage in most play throughs and just sell what I didn't need but on an old character I just never finished I was using the storage to try and inventory manage since I didn't know what I should keep.

                Anyway, just double check.

                  Can't get Loretta's bone. I am getting it from body. I see the message that I got it but its not there and Greirat is not reacting in anyway. Good thing I had save nearby so I triplecheked it. Thats my ng ++++ and it never happened before. Also the same crap happened to Grave Key. I bought it but it is nowhere to be found and I can't open door to Velka...

                      After handing over Loretta's Bone, I lost the ability to purchase items?! Is there a long term benefit? Or have I missed something?

                              This bone can be used as normal undead bone and be burn in the bonfire to increase the Ectus Flask's efficiency. So becareful if you want to complete Grierat's questline.

                                Since I screwed up and traded it in to the bird on the roof, does anyone know another way to get another one outside of NG+?

                                    Don't give to Greirat?13 Apr 2016 22:54  

                                    You might not want to give the bone to Greirat. He stopped selling items to me after I did, maybe it's just a coincidence?
