About This Content

At last! The Blue-blooded Ghostly Companion’s Brand New Accessory for Improved and More Efficient Monster Hunting is finally here!

Esteemed ladies and gentlemen, allow us to present Mr. Van Helsing’s charming, beautiful and witty aide: Lady Katarina, who doesn’t really require any further introduction. Our dangerous but beloved ghost lady has proven herself plenty of times. But did you think that that was all Borgovia could offer? Well, think twice! By owning the right accessory, you can turn Lady Katarina into an even more worthy companion to the legendary monster-hunter. Expand her range of skills and allow her to learn a few new tricks – a blue-blooded ghost never rests.

Key Features

8 brand new Skills for Lady Katarina (on a new, separate skill tree):
  • Power of Vengeance - Increases Katarina’s damage.
  • Wraith Frenzy - Boosts Katarina’s attack rate.
  • Wail of Vengeance - If Katarina is taken down, she will cause damage to everyone around her.
  • Ethereal Evasion - Improves Katarina’s dodge ability.
  • Armor of Defiance - Enhances Katarina’s Resistances.
  • Spectral Resilience - Increases Katarina’s HP.
  • Chillwave - Katarina has a chance to create an aura on the exact spot where her attack has previously landed: this effect decreases the movement, attack and casting speed of all enemies.
  • Curse Blast - Katarina has chance to create an aura on the spot where her attack has previously landed: this effect gives vulnerability to all enemies in the aura.
New Trick and Aura For Van Helsing
  • Aura of Counterbalance - Each Rage point spent grants Lady Katarina some HP.
  • Ghostly Mirage - Summons two extra Katarinas who fight exactly like Lady Katarina.

Having finished Van Helsing in Heroic Hardcore with melee orientated setup, I can say that the Blue Blood DLC helped a lot to clear up later levels which previously I found too hard. The extra boost given felt like Katarina was on steroids and made a huge difference (managed to complete it by only reaching lvl28!!). I found the way to my survival being using her as a secondary tank and then ethereal her once low on health, while in the meantime I was enjoying watching my damage being mitigated onto her in the middle of huge mobs (use ethereal embodiment trick when overwhelmed).

TL;DR: Highly recommended DLC to anyone wanting to complete the game in Heroic Hardcore mode as quickly as possible without dying all the time.

This really should just come with the base game without DLC. Don't see any reason why it shouldn't, doesn't add that much content to the game either to truly justify the price unless you're having her be some ranged attack who attacks from the back when her melee form is clearly the best.

This DLC is totally worth it if you're going to play Van
Helsing. "Ghostly Mirage" all by itself pretty much makes it all worthwhile, but the other abilities gained are very useful as well, especially since the majority of them are passive. I'd definitely pony up the extra buck or two and make the whole Van Helsing experience that much more bad ♥♥♥.

(Van Helsing: Blue Blood)

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is pretty great, and this add-on is no exception - the Blue Blood skill tree is designed for players who want a Katarina who can fight effectively on her own rather than just being support for your Van Helsing.

Unlike the two class DLCs, which I can't really rate since I've never played through the game as them, this one just unlocks more options for every playthrough of the game, as well.

Nice dlc, very helps in a game.
Katarina new skills and auras are very useful.
If you want to finish the game in hardcore mode, it is even more.
Best to buy the entire package.

I recommend.

EDIT: Also Final Cut is a thing just get that instead.


You're basically paying to make Katarina way more useful than normal, kinda feels like a face slap making this DLC considering it's 95% passive skills.

This DLC is very important, I would say essential, for getting the most out of Lady Katerina in battle. This DLC allows you to spend her skill points to increase, among other things, her health, elemental resistance, and attack speed, as well as give her the chance to apply vulnerability and slow to enemies.

Seriously, do not play the game without Katarina. It's like watching Tom & Jerry without Jerry.
