So I can’t play GW2 tonight…
I don’t know what the hell is going on but my lag is insane. After a long day back at work from my gamecation and other computer problems I decided to call it a night and not play. Which is actually kinda great when you think about it because the game will be there tomorrow. I couldn’t say that after the beta weekends so I’m happy about that. Always looking for the sliver lining.
Also today over on Twitter Scarybooster and River started talking about Necromancer builds. And of course being the lover of Necromancers that I am I decided to chime in on what I’ve been using weapon and utility skill wise. AND since I can’t play tonight I was actually messing around with the skill calculator over on Guild Head. Here is a link to my Necromancer build. It is obviously a work in progress but I think for the most part its set up nicely.
Weapon choices - Scepter Main Hand and Dagger Off Hand with Staff in the secondary slot.
Utility Skills - Epidemic to spread around conditions, Well of Power to turn conditions into boons, and Spectral Armor for oh shit moments when I need to build Life Force quickly. Not 100% sold on the elite skill Lich Form but it looks cool so why not give it a spin.
General usage - Stack DoTs on the main target with scepter 1 skill, dagger 5 and 4 skills. (Bleeds, poison, blind, and weakness) Spread conditions if necessary with Epidemic. Use scepter 3 skill Feast on Corruptions which deals additional damage and gaining life force for each condition on main target. I also get 2% increased damage for each condition on a foe as well as an additional 5% damage when my health is above 90%. I also have a 20% bleed duration increase as well as conditions from my scepter lasting 33% longer. My critical hits also have a 66% chance to cause bleeding. At this point if they aren’t bleeding to death I’m doing something really wrong. Which is ok because I have Life Force which is basically a second health pool and that drains 25% slower while I’m in Death shroud. This gives any heal I used time to recharge and I also heal the area when I leave Death Shroud. And if after all this they still ain’t dead I can pop into Lich Form. Oh and I have condition removal from my heal and Well of Power.
Like I said total work in progress and this can all change but tis fun coming up with builds. Don’t judge me if this build is not the urber or anything like that. I’m just having a bit of fun.
