Notes[]

  • This mutation only works with melee weapons and melee damage, despite the description, "close combat".
  • Other actions that can cause melee damage (and thus activate this effect) are dive attacks, shield parries, and use of skills that cause melee damage:
  • Attacks from affixes (bombs, arrows) do not inflict bleed stack from this mutation.
  • Weapons that already inherently inflict bleeding (notably, the Blood Sword Icon.pngBlood Sword and Bloodthirsty Shield Icon.pngBloodthirsty Shield ) will still be able to add another bleed stack via this mutation. So, for example, each slash of a Blood Sword will inflict one instance of bleed damage-over-time via the Blood Sword and one instance of Open Wounds bleed damage-over-time, for two bleed stacks per slash.
