Taste of Blood is a tier 2 skill in Krieg's Bloodlust skill tree. Krieg receives damage reduction during Buzz Axe Rampage for every Bloodlust stack he has, and the exact amount of reduction is based on both the level of Taste of Blood and the amount of stacks he has.

Effects

  • Max Damage Reduction: +10% per level up to level 5, +5% per level thereafter
  • Bloodlust Stacks: +10 per kill (+5 per level) (+3 per level above 5).

Can only leveled past 5 with Crunch, Wound, Legendary Reaper, and Legendary Sickle class mods.

Notes

  • A kill with a thrown buzz axe won't give the additional melee kill stacks.
  • A kill with a thrown Buzz Axe Bombardier does grant the additional kill stacks.
  • Damage reduction can fade or improve during Rampage as stacks increase or decrease.
  • Taste of Blood pairs well with Release the Beast and Blood Trance, allowing Krieg to become borderline indestructible for up to 40 seconds.
  • Due to a bug with Blood Overdrive, levels in Taste of Blood are also used to calculate bonus melee damage for Blood Overdrive.
