[3.0] Slayer Heavy Strike/Cleave Bleed Build

1pc64o

This build is utilizing high melee physical hit of heavy strike to deal high bleed damage, Starforge is the best in slot item for this build although a good physical two hand sword could be used.

For mapping, swap heavy strike with cleave and use cleave threshold jewel "Overwhelming Odds"

Yes, I just linked my items from other build, so the gems in the item could be wrong.
I have made a note in the Gear section.
Thank you for this nice build! I am currently testing out an axe cleave version of this. I have a question about mana management. Because you are taking hematophagy instead of vitality void, do you run into any mana problems since you don't leech mana?

The build is taking blood magic keystone, mana would not be a problem. =)

Ah! Sorry I somehow missed that. On that note however, I didn't take blood magic but crafted "leech 0.38% physical damage as mana", and it solved the "mana problem". Thanks for the clarification!
