Dishonored Bone Charms
The Bone Charm locations are shown in the order the player can chronologically encounter them.
How can I get more Bone Charm Ability slots?
Answer: While exploring Dunwall you will also find Bone Charms, a lesser version of Runes that will enable you to boost some of your abilities. You can only equip a limited number of Bone Charms at any given time, though this limit can be increased during the course of the game. You start out with 3 Bone Charm Ability slots, but you can buy more at The Hound Pits Pub.
How to find missing Bone Charm locations?
Answer: The Heart is a supernatural item that Corvo carries with him, that he channels psychic abilities from; which he hears as secrets pulled from the minds of others’ consciousness and such mystical senses. Bone Charms emit a faint “singing” sound.
When equipped — quick select it by pressing Down on the 4-Point Directional Pad of your controller / via the Quick-Access Wheel — The Heart beats faster when Corvo faces his objectives or Bone Charms. It works as an early detection system of sorts. So as you walk into new areas or rooms, select The Heart to find out if there’s a Bone Charm nearby.
But be warned, there may be a downside to using The Heart.
