Iron Blood Aspect (How to Get, Location & Effects): Diablo 4

Barbarians have different ways to damage enemies, one of these is by causing the Bleeding effect, which can happen in many ways.

Whether you are using a Barbarian Bleed Build or have passives that cause their attacks to cause bleeding, you can also benefit from Damage Reduction.

This is done with the use of the Iron Blood Aspect, which triggers when you are within range of enemies that you have inflicted with Bleeding.

Iron Blood Aspect Effects (Damage Reduction Aspect)

The Iron Blood Aspect will begin to take effect once you are nearby Bleeding enemies, providing you with a stacking percentage of damage reduction.

This means that the more enemies that are Bleeding, the more damage reduction you will receive, up to a certain percentage, while within range of them.

As long as enemies are Bleeding, the effects of the Iron Blood Aspect will be in effect and the Barbarian will take reduced damage until the enemies have been slain.
