Saint-tree Bellvine is a Chime  in Dark Souls 3.

Sacred chime for casting miracles of the Gods. A bellvine cut from a small saint-tree that has been meticulously tended to.

Saint-tree bellvines are customary in the far north, and allow for faster casting than ordinary sacred chimes.

Skill: Gentle Prayer
Recovers HP for a period of time, albeit extremely slowly. Works while equipped in either hand.

Notes and Tips:

  • Cannot be Infused or Buffed.
  • Reinforced with Titanite.
  • Spellbuff:
    • 60 Fth = 198
    • 50 Fth = 180
    • 40 Fth = 157
    • 30 Fth = 131
    • 20 Fth = 105
    • 18 Fth = 100
  • Provides a passive casting speed buff that is stronger than Sage Ring +2 (+99 Virtual Dexterity, but the cap is 50 Dexterity so it doesn't make a difference for most builds).
    • Buff applies for all spells you cast from all schools, even those cast with another catalyst in your other active slot. 
    • Buff only applies while Saint Tree Bellvine is in an active slot (ie. in your hand or on your hip).
    • You do not have to meet Faith requirements for the buff to apply.
    • Video of speed testing in comments below.
  • High casting speed and low spellbuff make this ideal for miracles that do not scale with spellbuff. eg. Replenishment, Blessed Weapon, Deep Protection, and Sacred Oath. 
  • Like all Chimes, it can be dropped in Picklepee the Crow's nest to receive the Help Me Carving item.

Location/Where to Find

  • Looted from a tree stump in Cathedral of the Deep, close to the bonefire. Exit the chapel through the entrance, turn right where 4 hollows are praying infront of an Estus Shard, and drop down into the water with the prowling maggots. The tree stump can be found outside to the right, just behind the building with the ladder shortcut.

      For me, this item only takes effect when it's currently being wielded -- ie, just having it on your hip won't apply the speed buff. It has to be in hand. It *does* still apply to spells cast from the other hand, though.

        Cool (but useless) glitch:
        It seems that if you keep spamming the skill (gentle prayer), you'll be able to do it indefinitely even when you don't have enough mana anymore. And I'm talking about the actual spell being done (as if you actually had enough mana), not just the "out of mana" effect that happens otherwise.
        Dunno if this is true for all other weapon skills...

        • So I'm making a pyro build, and I've considered this for a while.
          Should I use this or sage ring+2?
          I already made my onyx blade +5, so it would kind of be a waste of a slab to make a +5 D. scar.
          But on the other hand, I could really use an extra ring slot.
          Please let me know what you guys think.

            Guys, there seems to be another passive buff that even further tips the scales on whether or not you should use this! It takes less stamina to cast miracles! If i use my yorshka's chime, casting projected heal takes all my stamina, using this i have just enough stamina to cast 2 in a row or roll out.

              This work like sage ring +2, equip it in off hand provide you ~ 40 virtual dexterity, which is very good for a Caster build. =>>This free up a ring slot.
              Sorry for my bad english

                Probably should mention the synergy that Dorthy's Gnawing has with the Bellvine chime. Given how negligible damage the spell deals, the main focus will be the bleed buildup - which of course will be fantastic to pair with a faster casting speed.

                  Contrary to what this wiki page states, I do not believe the speed buff applies if this is worn on hip. Based on my speed tests, it has to be held in (either) hand.

                    i Have a question, if i want to use this chime only to have high speed casting to buff spells that dont scale or scale bad with spell power and i have 15 faith (i needs 18 fth for the chime) will affect the speed? or only the spell power? if is only the spell power then i will stay at 15 instead of 18, that would save me 3 points. please someone knows?

                      I'm not sure if anyone has ever mentioned this, but the passive speed increase for casting seems to effect other chimes/talismans/weapons on hand that can cast miracles.

                      I noticed this when I went to go test out how fast it casts compared to other chimes/talismans, so I had the Bellvine in one hand and the Rose of Ariandel in the other. For some reason, they casted miracles with the same speed. Switching away the Bellvine, the cast time for miracles with just the Rose took longer to pull off until I re-equipped the Bellvine in my offhand.

                        Excellent catalyst for Blessed Weapon just like the page says, used this against Dragonslayer Armour when there's no point in using Lightning Weapon and there's not much time for buffing.

                        • Saint-Tree Bellvine Buffs the speed of the catalyst in the opposite hand. Fun fact. So you can rock a Yorshka's Chime with the speed of a high dex character without the need for the sage ring or actual dex.

                            Since their Bleed buildup is not associated with Faith or spell power, it can be ideal to use this Miracle, too.
