Each Avatar has a set of Blood Pacts exclusive to that Avatar while summoned. They are triggered by the Summoner at the cost of his or her MP. These include damaging and/or debilitating physical abilities (a few of which may be Skillchained), Elemental Magic (which may be Magic Bursted), or valuable support abilities not found elsewhere. The Blood Pact ability has a 60 sec. recast timer which can be shortened or lengthened by equipping certain weapons and armor.
When Summoners use the ability Astral Flow, an additional class of Blood Pact abilities become available for the duration of its effect. These abilities will consume all of the Summoner's remaining MP in order to inflict massive AOE damage.
Blood Pact Delay - equipment has a hard cap of -15 seconds, for a minimum blood pact timer of 45 seconds.
Blood Pact will receive different effects when the value added by equipment or merit points exceeds the skill cap for that level.
Players can experience increased accuracy when using Blood Pact: Rage or lengthened effect durations when using Blood Pact: Ward. The length of the duration increased varies depending on which Blood Pact is used.
A player whose summoning magic skill is lower than the skill cap will not experience any penalties, such as a decrease in accuracy or shortened effect durations.
