“Our bloodline exists to fulfill the call of Abhorash – to fight and hone our military skills. He achieved greatness by slaying a mighty dragon and drinking of its blood, and through this he thirsted for the blood of man no more. We shall not seek land. We shall  not seek titles. We shall not seek plunder. We live only to be the best warriors. Go forth my sons and prove your valor as powerful knights. Harry not the weak for they are no challenge, only take life from those whose life is difficult to take.” Oath of the Blood Dragons of Blood Keep, Walach Harkon

Blood Dragon

Archtype – Tank

Armor – Heavy

  • You call upon a powerful steed and ride it into combat bolstering your performance and allowing you to use mounted abilities. While mounted you have an 5% increased chance to critically hit with melee attacks and gain a Calling which affects both your pets and your survivability. Certain abilities require steeds and/or a Calling. The wounds, toughness, and initiative of your steed are one half of your stats. If you are dismounted (your pet is killed or an ability dismounts you) then your Calling persists until you summon a different mount granting you a different Calling or your buff expires. Beasts of Blood increase your movement speed by 5%.
