I want to know their differences in terms of aoe capabilities. I just read from the guide that inferno is great in dot aoe but burns mana quickly and I want to know if the dark build can also cabable of spamming aoes Too. I choose dark as my build but I want to know if it is good in grinding with aoes

    No it isnt, its horrible, their aoe is **** damage and only used to reveal sins. Sorry to disappoint but dark burns thru mana even more quickly due to their speed. So their AoE grinding abilities r.. BAD.
    Bloods are moderatly better but Inferno is the King of AoE for Vamps... But Vamp in general is a PvP class... even inferno is mostly tailored to pvp aoe with stuns and stuff but yeh... still good for pve also

    Lets take endgame stats: 6000 base atk, 500 mastery, 40000 hp.
    Mana explosion (1s cast, 6s cd): (6000 * 1.19 *1.2 + 1500 + 40000 * 0.01) * 1.5 = 15700 dmg.
    Hellfire death (1/2s cast, 2/4s cd): (6000 * 1.17 * 1.3 + 2900) * 1.5 + 1650 = 19700 dmg.
    But bat form has 65s cooldown, so you cant spam fire aoe all time.
    Dark vamp gets second aoe at lv80: 100% base attack + 2500 bonus, 15s cd.
    For sure dark is not that good at aoe as inferno, but still can do some damage, which mostly comes from base attack, so stack ragefires if you want to aoe as dark.
    But if you want to do good aoe - dont play vamp. For example mage can spam 120k aoe every 8 seconds (3s cast + 5s cd) with 30-50k aoe in the meantime.

    So blood can also be good in aoe grind but not great as inferno?

    I said it before, you loose 50-100% damage from skills out of your element, so i don't even consider them. Unless you got low attack and mastery.
