What are Blood Resonances in Bloodhunt?

As you start exploring Prague in search of fresh prey, you’ll notice that some NPCs are marked in orange (see above), pink, indigo, and aqua. This is because these people have a specific type of blood that your character upgrades† These are your Blood resonances.

By feeding them using ‘F,‘ (Remember to hold it in) you can add improvements to your character that can really make the difference between being alive and dead.

All of the game’s various Blood Resonances can be found below, as well as their corresponding color and the benefits they provide you.

Blood Resonance Color Basic upgrade Level 2 Upgrade Level 3 Upgrade
choleric Orange Increases your melee damage by +10% +25% +50%
Melancholic Indigo Reduces your clan skill (E) cooldown by 10% -25% -50%
Phlegmatic aqua Reduces the cooldown of your Archetype Skill (Q) by 10% -25% -50%
Sanguine Pink Increases your health regeneration by 0.5 . per second 1.5 3

How To Get More Resonance Slots

If you’ve decided to make it a little party, you’ll notice it pretty soon you can only record three Resonance slots at the start of your game† But don’t worry, because there’s a pretty fun way to increase your slots – it just involves a bit of murder.

To get more slots you need to: Destroy your enemies. You do this by finishing down enemies with ‘F.’ Hold it in, watch them wrestle, and viola! You have a new lock.

You can earn up to seven slots using this method, but the number of levels for each resonance remains the same† Make sure to max out the two above in that order, then insert your last point into one of the other slots.

So that’s it for Blood Resonances in Vampire The Masquerade’s Bloodhunt battle royale.
