Defensive use only
Some instances of bloodward only become available when you are in a defensive battle—when you have been attacked by another player.
The bloodward proc can be gained when damage is dealt by a vampiric creature or by another player.
The amount of damage that is reduced varies by the bloodward proc's level:
Bloodward's level Damage reduction percentage Level 1 -5% of final damage amount Level 2 -10% of final damage amount Level 3 -15% of final damage amount Level 4 -20% of final damage amount Level 5 -25% of final damage amount
Wards are combined by multiplying them together, so fewer sources of higher levels of bloodward is more effective than more sources of lower levels of bloodward.
The elysium feat is an enhanced version of the bloodward proc.
