How Vampiric Powers Work in Diablo 4
In Season of Blood players have the opportunity to turn their characters into Vampires with new gameplay mechanics. By defeating enemies you collect Potent Blood, that you can use in the Vampiric Powers tab to unlock new Powers or upgrade existing ones! Other ways that allow you to unlock these new powers include the brand NEW Seasonal Quest line or by completing Blood Harvest Seasonal Events.
It is possible to upgrade each power up to Level 3 and increase its effects and potential. Every character can equip up to five(5) Vampiric Powers at once, altering your Builds in unique ways! In order to actually use your Powers though, you will need special Pact Armor!
Pact Armor in Diablo 4
There are three types of Pact in Season of Blood, Ferocity, Divinity, Eternity. Every Vampiric Power requires one or more of the above Pact types to activate. So for example if a Power you want to use requires 1 Divinity then you will need to wear an armor piece that provides that 1 Divinity. Pact Armor pieces can offer a variety of combinations that will allow you to use specific powers.
The above Gloves offer 1 Ferocity, Divinity and Eternity Pact. Which means that you can activate with those, Powers that will require 1 Divinity or 1 Ferocity or 1 Eternity Pact. If a power requires 2 Ferocity Pacts to activate though, these gloves are not enough. You will have to get the extra Ferocity Pact from another Armor piece. It is possible to cleanse an Armor of its Pacts and even add the Pact types your Powers require, so you can use them.

Depending on the number of Pacts required to activate them, Vampiric Powers are divided in Minor and Major. Minor Powers require up to 3 Pacts to use them while Major Powers will take 6 Pacts to activate them. Vampiric Curse is a new effect that stores the soul of enemies. Casting a Defensive, Macabre, or Agility Skill will unleash stored souls to attack nearby enemies. You can hold up to 8 souls.
