Intro & build description
Exsanguinate is a skill introduced in the Ultimatum league, and it was a quite popular choice. There’s no doubt that this build will also work great as a starter build in the 3.15 Expedition league.
- Great build to start the league with, can clear low maps with very basic gear
- Doesn't use a lot of uniques, aside from jewels and flasks
- Good damage and clear speed
- Good boss killer with some currency invested
- Reflect kills us

HelmetRare Elder helmet
Look for rare elder helmet with at least 80 to maximum life and high resistances.
Endgame mod you would want on a helmet is “Nearby enemies take #% increased physical damage”.
Body ArmourRare Body armour with Warlord or Shaper influence
Ideal endgame Body armour would have following mods:
1.) +1 to level of socketed active skill gems
2.) At least 90 to maximum life
3.) Bench crafted “Gain 10% of maximum life as extra maximum energy shield”
Until you can get armour like that, use Tabula Rasa or cheap corrupted 6-linked armour with correct colors.
GlovesRare Gloves with Hunter or Elder influence
We use gloves for offense, so look for a pair with high life and physical damage over time multiplier.
Resistance or 2 on top of that would be ideal.
Look for rare boots with 80+ life, 30% increased movement speed and as much resistance as you can.
Left RingRare Ring
Look for rare rings with high life and resistances.
A really great, but quite rare mod that would work amazingly well for the build is “x% of Physical Damage Leeched as Life”, but that’s an endgame upgrade.
Right RingRare Ring
Same as previously mentioned ring.
AmuletRare Amulet with Warlord Influence
For your endgame amulet, look for Warlord influenced amulet with +1 to physical spell skill gems and some life.
If you have even more currency and want to push the build even further, dual influenced Warlord/Hunter amulet with +1 to physical and +1 to strength skill gems would be the choice.
Until you can afford an amulet like that, use regular amulet with life, spell damage, and cast speed. You could also craft increased global physical damage on it using crafting bench.
BeltRare Stygian Vise
Look for rare Stygian Vise with at least 80 life and as much resistance as possible.
1Hand WeaponCold Iron Point
Good, affordable weapons for the build.
Until you can get them, use regular wands with increased spell damage and cast speed.
OffhandCold Iron Point
We dual wield 2x Cold Iron Point.
On regular rare jewels look for following mods:
1.) Increased maximum life
2.) Physical damage over time multiplier
3.) Corrupted blood cannot be inflicted on you corrupted implicit
4.) Increased global physical damage / increased damage
Build also uses 2 Large, 4 Medium and 1 Small Cluster jewels.
On Large cluster jewels look for following notables:
2.) Furious Assault
3.) Master the Fundamentals
On Medium cluster jewels look for following notables:
1.) Evil Eye
2.) Wish For Death
3.) Blood Artist
4.) Brush With Death
On Small cluster jewel, we mainly look for +12 to chaos resistance, other good mods would be +to maximum life, other resistance / attribute.
Build also uses 3 unique jewels:
1.) Replica Pure Talent – for increased damage and attack & cast speed.
2.) Thread of Hope with Large Ring – to allocate Sovereignty, Discipline and Training and Vanquisher.
3.) Glorious Vanity, Doryani version – to convert Eternal Youth keystone into Corrupted Soul.

2.) Rumi’s Concoction
