Blood Rush is a tier 6 skill in Athena's Xiphos skill tree.


Blood Rush is a melee override skill that gives Athena the ability to dash towards enemies and strike them with her sword, Xiphos. If Athena has Blood Rush and causes an opponent to bleed, or the melee kills the target, then its cooldown is immediately reset.

Weaker enemies can be killed in one hit, while stronger ones should be made to bleed first, then left alone to attack other, stronger enemies and if used with Blooodlust, can provide a very good health regeneration.


  • Missing an attack immediately puts Blood Rush into skill cooldown.
  • Athena will perform a standard melee attack if there is not an enemy directly in front of her and this will not cause Blood Rush to go into cooldown.
