This build will give you more Energy regeneration which is useful when constantly changing targets. Keep in mind that you can also swap points into Vigor for more effective target-swapping.
The second build is more for focusing single targets, it will increase your haste, thus increasing poison procs, meaning more damage in a long-term.
Gems are situational and depend on the build and equipment. They are used to reach the required stat caps.

Gameplay & Rotations
Long story short… Go in Stealth and open with a Garrote or Ambush, if someone else applies the bleed. Next, use Hunger For Blood and use that 1 combo point to activate Slice and Dice. Get 4-5 Combo Points using Mutilate and our finisher move is Envenom. Slice and Dice will be renewed thanks to our talents.
Cold Blood is used only on Envenom.
Important: Envenom gives you a buff, that procs Instant poison 75% more often and increases Deadly Poison chances by 15%. After Envenom try landing 1-2 Mutilate and Envenom again. The main thing here is to have the Envenom buff at all time. This will increase your damage a lot!
