Sustain

  • The main point of the build is the passive sustain, your Signets work while in Shroud, allowing you to heal back both health, and life force passively while in Shroud.

Strong duelist, absolute unit and extremely tanky against all forms of pressure, but plagued by the usual necro problems. If any enemy wants to run away, they will, you can't really stop them or chase them (aside from a few conditions that could help) and if you get into trouble there's no escape for you either. Slow attacks easily get blinded, and it gets ragdolled around by CC.

Dodged all the PvP nerfs so i don't see it getting nerfed anytime soon for WvW, lacks mobility but can win/stave off any 1v1.
