Blood Ritual

Cost: 10 Life

Sacrifices Life to regain Mana.

Damage Type: Physical

Blood Ritual was a spell in demo version of Diablo I. In the released game, it was cut.

General Information[edit | edit source]

Blood Ritual, when cast, would drain 10 Life from the character (bypassing all forms of protection), but instantly refill Mana.

It used the same sound and cast-animation as Healing.


  • 10 Life per cast (static)
  • Gain Mana: 8 + Spell Level

The spell was cut because, Mana bonus being higher than the health cost, it could be used together with Healing to give a character infinite life and mana when not in combat.

The icon was later reused in Diablo II for the Slow Missiles Amazon Skill.
