A Complete Guide To The New Vampiric Powers Mechanic In Diablo 4 Season 2! - All 22 Vampiric Powers Explained

Oct 08 ,2023 Author: D4gold

Diablo 4 Season 2 starts on October 17th. In the new season, they will introduce 22 types of Vampiric Powers for players to fight against evil forces. They do not divide these 22 Vampiric Powers into classes, and a character can only activate five abilities at a time.

Much of Season of Blood will revolve around collecting Potent Blood. This is a new resource earned by defeating enemies. It can be used to unlock random powers or power upgrades from a new section of the character menu. Players can accumulate large amounts of Diablo 4 Gold by trading it at the beginning of the season.

You can also earn additional powers by playing seasonal questlines or taking part in the new seasonal event Blood Harvest.

How To Use Vampiric Powers?

While acquiring powers and their upgrades are fairly simple, players will need a new type of armor to actually activate these powers. This new type of armor is called Pact Armor and can be rolled with three types of Pact, namely Ferocity, Divinity, and Eternity.

Vampiric Powers require a certain number of pacts to be equipped to activate. For example, a small Vampiric Power might require 1 Eternity Pact. But another possibility requires 1 Ferocity and 1 Divinity.

If the player has a piece of equipment that contains all three pacts, both powers will become active.

In addition, some Diablo 4 Items such as chest armor, pants, gloves, boots, and helmets may drop with Pact. Therefore, players need to pay attention to the armor that suits their Vampiric Powers.

How To Easily Find The Right Pact Armor?

Thankfully, players do have some ways to make finding the right Pact Armor easier. Players can add specific pacts or remove them from their equipment by crafting items called Standalone Pacts and Cleansing Acids.

This way, we don’t have to rely solely on random loot rolls to fine-tune gear. We can farm these crafts from Season Questline, Season Journey, Blood Harvest activities, and Opulent Coffins.

Vampiric Powers

As for Vampiric Powers themselves, they come in two forms: Minor Vampiric Powers and Major Vampiric Powers.

As one might guess, Minor Vampiric Powers are less powerful, but also don’t require that many pacts to activate. Relatively speaking, Major Vampiric Powers are much more powerful, but require 6 Pacts to activate.

Also, Season 2 will introduce a new keyword, Vampiric Curse, which will interact with certain Vampiric Powers.
