Bloodlust can be activated through the following methods:
- A character with this skill kills another character in single combat (that is, using a non- Area of Effect attack) (30 ticks).
- A character with this skill uses a Blood Ice from inventory (30 ticks).
- A character with this skill lands a successful Rage Strike (15 ticks).
If Bloodlust is already active, doing one of these actions will extend the duration by that number of ticks.
For example: a character with this skill makes a kill, entering Bloodlust with 30 Status Ticks on the counter. After 14 Status Ticks have passed (leaving the character with 16 more) the character makes another kill. The Status Tick counter is now reset to 30. After 20 Status Ticks have passed (leaving the character with 10 more) they land a Rage Strike bringing their counter back up to 24 status ticks.
The character may voluntarily leave their Bloodlusted state at any time.
