There are three ways that you can unlock Vampiric Powers in Diablo 4:

  • Firstly, you can spend Potent Blood, a new resource introduced in Season of Blood dropped by defeated enemies, to unlock Vampiric Powers at random via the Vampiric Powers tab in the character menu. Potent Blood can also be used to upgrade your existing Vampiric Powers, up to a maximum level of 3.
  • Secondly, you can unlock Vampiric Powers by progressing in the Seasonal Questline for Season of Blood.
  • Finally, you can unlock Vampiric Powers by completing Blood Harvest events, new map events that pit you against Lord Zir’s minions in different regions of Sanctuary.

In short, you’ll naturally unlock Vampiric Powers as you engage with the new Season of Blood content, and you can grind dungeons and map events to build up Potent Blood to unlock more if need be.

The Pact system

Before we get into the Vampiric Powers themselves, it’s worth going over the Pact System first, since it governs which Vampiric Powers your character will be able to use. Pacts are new items that can be applied to armor pieces in Diablo 4. All armor pieces dropped during Season of Blood will feature at least one Pact, and Pacts will also drop as consumable items which allow you to apply them to, and remove them from, your existing gear.

There are three types of Pacts: Ferocity, Divinity, and Eternity. Each Vampiric Power has a Pact requirement: for example, Anticipation requires one Divinity Pact, and Hemomancy requires three Eternity Pacts. You’ll only be able to make use of an equipped Vampiric Power if your armor features the right type and number of Pacts required to use them. Vampiric Powers are split into Minor and Major, with the former requiring 1-3 Pacts to use, while the latter require 6 Pacts to use, and are therefore more powerful to compensate.
