For year, I haven't seen a single build that make the use of the Blood Hatred skill.

I tried it myself and it suck. It serves no purpose.

Weapon Attack skills in Median have 3 main styles:
+Aoe: to kill Aoe. Median monster density is massive, so they are usually primary attacks
+Single: to kill bosses, stationary target, often strong with absurb damage
+Buff: usually single hit that buff the character

What style is Blood Hatred??
+It is clearly not Aoe skill, so you can't use it as main attack
+Single: want to kill boss with this? you empty all of your mana after a few hit. So you can't.
+Buff: you must hit 3-5 hit to activate the buff, on a single monster, you lose a lot of time and effectiveness by doing this. So you can't.

I have tried many thing to revive this skill but was in vain.

It is so underwhelming now, I suggest some changes (but not all of them should be used):

1/Remove mana cost, the skill cost life already
2/Give it a small proc chance that proc a Fire/Light/Cold blast for a small radius, this suit well with the Element pierce nature of the skill
3/Make the buff become effective with just one hit

This skill is actually pretty good, you can make it work.
One of nice combos that works with it is whirlwind, if you have BH charged up, life on hit component, you can use windform and if you dual wield you will get insanely fast hit rate that heals you (2 frame afaik). You can use thaty to your advantage.

One thing that could improve though is "-enemy resistance" stat, as imo it got nerfed too hard on this skill, back when it was globally nerfed. It is utter pain to charge it up in boss fights where you die a alot. I think if you playing something as niche as blood hatred, and maxed the skill, it should be able to get to about -50 enemy all resist pierce, considering how conditional this buff is.

BH is awesome against Astrogha, you can stay far from her and she wont cast the Orb and usually doesn't teleport away. You can almost take out 10% HP of Astrogha with BH before he teleports aways
