As you progress through Season of Blood's questline, you will unlock new Vampiric Powers. To unlock Vampiric Powers, head to Ked Bardu, then speak to NPC Oren, and he will give you a quest called Blood Money. Players can also unlock Vampiric Powers from the Blood Harvest seasonal event

Furthermore, as you slay enemies such as Vampires, bosses, and more, you will get Potent Blood. From here, you can spend Potent Blood to unlock a random Vampiric Power in Diablo 4 Season 2. Spend this new Potent Blood currency by heading to the Character Menu and then the Vampiric Powers tab to unlock either a random power or power upgrade.

There are both minor and major Vampiric Powers. To actually use them, you will need to find Pact Armor (Chest, Pants, Gloves, Boots, and Helms) dropped from enemies across Sanctuary. 

There are three Pact types in Diablo 4, namely Ferocity, Divinity, and Eternity. You’ll need to ensure that the armor you’re wearing provides Pacts that match the activation cost listed on the power. As you can see from the example image above, you can get multiple Pacts on an armor piece. 

With a very quick explanation of how Pacts work out of the way, let's take a look at the Diablo 4 Vampiric Powers and the Pact requirements to use them below, starting with the minor powers.
