[3.14] Bloodslinger | Exsanguinate | Corrupting Fever | Petrified Blood [LL]

TLDR:
-***EXPERIMENTAL***

-Experimental POB: https://pastebin.com/JdJaD6C7 (ignore mana reservation being negative, it's broken with Prism Guardian in POB right now)

Links:
Helmet: Vitality (level 15) + War Banner + Malevolence + Enlighten (level 3)

Chest: Exsanguinate + Spellslinger + Brutality + Efficacy + Controlled Destruction + Swift Affliction

Wand: Flame Dash + Arcane Surge (level 4) + Second Wind

Shield (Prism Guardian Required): Pride + Petrified Blood + Herald of Purity

Gloves: Corrupting Fever + Brutality + Swift Affliction + Empower (level 4)

Boots: Kinetic Blast + Lifetap + GMP + Maim

Concept:
-The concept of the build is to link Exsanguinate into a Spellslinger setup, which triggers every time you attack.

-Link Corrupting Fever into the 4L gloves (with 30% more damage over time to socketed gems from Essence of Delirium)

-KB delivery system will stack a ton of Corrupting Fever very quickly.

-Removes one of the major drawbacks of blood skills, which is the health cost + cast speed.

-Stack as many methods of a hit as possible to maintain near 10 stacks of Corrupting Fever on enemies.

-You'll be applying two DoTs through Exsanguinate and Corrupting Fever every attack.

-Ascendant (my league starter): https://pastebin.com/PhcNDPev

I'm pretty sure they spellslingers are going to reserve your life.

Based on the wording of Spellslinger: "Reserves mana based on the supported spells to cause those spells to trigger when you fire projectiles from a wand attack" and entirely segregated resource mechanics now, I don't think it will reserve life unless you put in the new Arrogance support. Spellslinger reservation has nothing to do with the base cost of the skill, so it shouldn't inherit that property. This is entirely new territory for PoE, so anything is possible- I just really hope it ain't the case haha.

I really hope the Spellslinger interaction does reserve mana and not life, because if so this build looks like a lot of fun. If not... well back to the drawing board for exsanguinate builds.
Main issue is that it'll not get blood charges from reap so 75% less damage than a normal cast reap.

Reap isn't the main damage dealer, so that isn't a huge deal-breaker for me. Exsanguinate + Corrupting Fever will be carrying the majority of damage later on. I just slapped Reap in there because it looks pretty sweet, but ultimately it may come out for a different setup.

Looks really promising to be honest. Really hope it works as you expect.
Do you think you'll be updating PoB before the league starts ? I'll keep an eye out on this variant for sure :)
