Cruelty vs Empower:
Spoiler
Cruelty gives me 30% more dps with the hit and up to 50% more with DOT, Empower gives 28% more for both. It's very hard to distinguish the difference in DPS although tooltip with Cruelty seems to be much higher. If my math is right Cruelty wins every time but PoB hasn't caught up yet.

Another consideration is empower gives you more tendrils if you don't have + levels from other sources.


Exsanguinate 6L:
Spoiler
Exsanguinate => Awakened Brutality => Efficacy => Empower/Cruelty => Awakened Controlled Destruction => Awakened Swift Affliction (bosses)/Awakened Chain (clear)



Pros/Cons:
Spoiler

Pros:
High Damage,
Great Clear Speed (with Chain),
Decent defense

Cons:
Pride and Exsanguinate stacks need up to 4 seconds to get max damage,
expensive,
and although not necessary, gem swap for top bosses.

Your PoB has a legacy Circle of Guilt ring with 38% reduced reservation. Otherwise seems interesting.

Watcher's Eye would probably be a bit too expensive for most people. Even with just Discipline and Clarity mods it's 39 exalts at the time of writing.

You can still work around the less reservation with the current Circle of Guilt, for instance, by pathing to Sovereignty instead of Influence.


As for the Watcher's, you can probably go with something more offensive than the clarity mod and adjust the tree for more defense to make up for it.

If I'm being honest, there's a harsh penalty for going Life/ES vs Life/Mana.
Added War Banner for another 12% more damage!

Note: Amulet has additional Physical Damage Over Time Multiplier added for Blood Artist nodes.
Heya, this is a really great looking build, 1 question though. I see you have a ball lightning set up and I'm wondering what that does for the build. Or is it just a leftover of the leveling process? I might still just run it regardless and do something else with the spot, but either way, this is exactly the type of build I was looking for. GJ. :D
