First Variation - Recommended (especially in the early game):
► Show Spoiler
Use paragon to increase your total HP pool and survivability. Paragon provides a vitality buff per gem equipped. Using a ton of Topaz perfect gems will help boost both your HP as well as your Energy (each topaz will end up given you 5% bonus to Energy as well as 150+ Vitality). Alternatively use onyx/bloodstone/amber if you are in need of resistances. This should give you a 23-30k hp pool around the mid-game.
Second Variation (viable now in late game due to Sigma changes):
► Show Spoiler
Reason why Spirit of Vengeance (SoV) is viable in Sigma is because Bloodlust now triggers Bacchanalia´s Blood Fury buff. Previously, you had to be at 66% HP in order to trigger Blood Fury and for that reason running SoV was an extreme risk as you´d be sitting at ~6k HP or so in order to get the buff. Now however, with the new Bloodlust and with the introduction of some new gear, you can easily rest at a full hp pool of 15-20k in the late-game while also having SoV´s amazing damage increase + meat-shield.
Hey, I was looking forward to follow this guide since I'm really new to the game but I can't figure out how to spend my skill points. Call me stupid or blind, maybe both but could anyone help this noob out? I know it's based on the ''Blood-tree'' though, should I take some of the ''Neutral-tree'' as well?
Thanks and I'm sorry if someone asked this question already.
