The Blood Knights have arrived in Diablo 4, bringing their unique brand of bloody carnage to the battlefield.
These vampiric warriors are a force to be reckoned with and are melee hybrid characters who use a combination of physical and blood magic attacks. They’re able to heal themselves with their own blood, and they can also use their blood to empower their attacks.
Season of the Malignant is coming to Diablo 4 on July 20.
One of the most unique things about Blood Knights is their ability to transform into a blood demon. This transformation grants them a significant boost to their stats, and it also allows them to use powerful new abilities, making them a formidable foe in both single and multiplayer combat.
The Blood Knights are the first new class to be added to Diablo 4 since the Crusader in 2014 and are sure to provide players with hours of fun.
To learn more about the Blood Knights, you will start off with Quest of Unrest, a new story-driven Elite Quest. Here, you will experience the torment they go through to harness their curse and keep from becoming mindless thralls.
This melee hybrid class who devours their enemies’ life, entraps them with summoned shadows and cuts down any opposition with knightly polearms. Here are some of the Blood Knight’s abilities:
Blood Rush: Dash forward, dealing damage to enemies in your path.
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.

There’s more to the character than what’s listed above, but you will have to find the rest out for yourself.
