Diablo Immortal Welcomes Blood Knights to the Battlefield

 Blood Knight

The world of Diablo Immortal just got a whole lot bloodier with the addition of the Blood Knights, a new class of vampiric warriors that bring a unique brand of bloody carnage to the battlefield. These melee hybrid characters are a force to be reckoned with, using a combination of physical and blood magic attacks to decimate their enemies.

One of the most intriguing aspects of the Blood Knights is their ability to heal themselves with their own blood and use it to empower their attacks. This self-sustaining mechanic adds a new layer of strategy to the gameplay, as players must balance their health and attack power to maximize their effectiveness on the battlefield.

The Blood Knights also have the unique ability to transform into a blood demon. This transformation grants them a significant boost to their stats and allows them to use powerful new abilities, making them a formidable foe in both single and multiplayer combat.

  • Tendrils of Blood: Shoot blood tendrils into nearby enemies, dealing damage and pulling them towards you.
  • Blood Feast: Consume a portion of your blood to heal yourself and empower your attacks.
  • Blood Nova: Release a powerful wave of blood, dealing damage to enemies in front of you.
  • Blood Transformation: Transform into a blood demon, granting you a significant boost to your stats and abilities.

Signature Skills include:

  • Shadow’s Edge: a primary attack that either performs a slash or throws a dagger.
  • Swarm of Bats: summons a cloud of bats to deal damage and move on command.
  • Siphon Blood: steals health from enemies all around.
  • Abomination: kills enemies and absorbs their blood to become more powerful, adding Blood Rush and Shattering Fist skills.
  • Skewer: impales a foe and stuns nearby enemies.
  • Mephitic Cloud: shadowy mists cause enemies’ vision to be blurred.

New Combat Mechanics: Each set of weapons provides a stance, and players can get different stance effects by switching weapons during combat. Stance effects are attributed bonuses with a temporary buff and a 15-20 second cooldown when players switch stances.

The Blood Knights are a powerful and versatile class, and they're sure to be a popular choice among Diablo Immortal players. If you're looking for a class that can deal a lot of damage and heal on the fly, then the Blood Knight is a great choice for you.
