Blooded Champion is a minotaur paragon path. It was introduced in Dragon 369 under the name Horned Champion.

Prerequisite: Minotaur

Blooded Champion Path Features

Vigorous Action (11th level): When you spend an action point to make an attack while you're bloodied, you gain temporary hit points equal to your Constitution score.

Aggressive Resurgence (11th level): When you use your second wind, you can forgo regaining hit points and the bonus to your defenses to instead both regain the use of your goring charge racial power and gain a +2 bonus to attack rolls and damage rolls until the end of your next turn.

Never Say Die (16th level): When you drop to 0 hit points or fewer, you don't fall unconscious as a result of the dying condition until you fail a death saving throw.

  • The paragon path was introduced in Dragon 369 with the name Horned Champion. It required a defender or striker role at the time.  Never Say Die and Driving Gore had different wording in Dragon 369, but largely the same effect.
