I'm using Double Strike because my offhand weapon's damage is kind of low, but I do have a Dual Strike gem (unused) sitting in my stash. For AoE I just spam Bladefall. I've got an Ice Golem, as well as the Hatred and Purity of Elements auras.

Talents-wise, I've specced heavily into physical damage and life/mana steal and picked up Acrobatics. Going into Act 2 Cruel, I'm sitting on just under 1.2k HP, which seems a little low?

What support gems do you have linked with double strike? You couls use a shield if you use double strike, or, get a better skill like reave. Or use an offhand with global bonuses. Will get back to it later, class just started.

Also 1.2k life is ok-ish for cruel a2. The problem with evasion based chars is that you need that life to be not a oneshot but its difficult to reach 150-180 % increased life in the skilltree as evasion build.

You can get an energy shield buffer, run discipline (charisma is close) and go Ghost Reaver. Especially since he plays claws with vaal pact. In case you want life only just get flask nodes, like increased charge rate (most notably profane chemistry) and run some instant life flasks so it returns you to full life in one use.

This is the skillbuild I'm using. Downside is that it's designed for high levels that I haven't reached yet, hence I'm missing a lot of the survivability parts of it. It still works pretty well, to the point where I was able to just slug it out with Dominus and lifesteal back whatever damage he did without needing to use a potion.

What is your crit chance? Because I see you're not getting extra power charges on tree yet you go for crit nodes. Also, you get the survivability first. Chase the HP through the tree. You can't deal damage if you're dead.

Main hand crit is 22.75%, offhand is 22.05%. I have actually done most of the survivability options in the tree... plus I got a Whirling Blades and holy **** how do you even die with that spell.

As for linked gems, I've got a Dual Strike with Faster Attacks, Poison and Increased Crit damage. My linkings haven't been particularly kind and I feel it's a bit too early to blow tons of fusings on Vorici.
