  • All of your marks are unblockable and generate Life Force.
  • Never spam your marks on the ground out of combat - they are easy to spot and a single dodge from the enemy can get rid of them. The only exception can be
    (because it's not a key skill and has a low CD), which you can freely place at an entrance or under yourself to potentially give away Stealthed enemy movement.
  • Both weapon sets have one unblockable hard-CC skill:
    on Scepter/Warhorn and
    on Staff. Use them to interrupt skills such as the Revenant's
    • Tip: enemy players who block Staff skills can work against themselves. Long blocks such as Crystal Hibernation give you more than enough time to land crucial staff skills like
      with little to no risk of being avoided as blocking players normally don't dodge.
  • Entering Shroud triggers
    . If you're CC'd and Blinded you can enter shroud, the Blind will make this trait miss, but will allow you to safely land a
    . If the target has Stability Stability you can do this the other way around, cast Doom while Blinded to get rid of it and land Weakening Shroud, applying Weakness and potentially turning the Stability into Fear.

By not taking the reaper spec this build can take the defining specialization of both builds currently in the meta, Spite and Curses. Reaper skills aren't that much better aside from the Shroud anyways.

2018 edit: yeah not very impressive now. i would have archived it if we wouldn't want to keep a F2P spec for each profession.

Lol, I honestly thought I would do bad without reaper, but it's actually VERY good, nice condition damage.

Call me crazy, but this build is amazing even though it loses out on the superior dealers shroud, it has amazing Condi damage, plus good survivability, anyone who says this is garbage is smoking.

Necro has "Zero" survivability. There are so many other classes and so many other builds that have more evades , more blocks , more invulns , more stealth , and more mobility than this build. This build has the least suvivability and the least mobility. If you die only once per match, you will be forgiven. But, if you die more than 1 time in a single match , you shouldnt play this build. Play something else

Necro without Reaper is still decent as boon corruption is such a big part of it. That being said, I can't give it great rating since Reaper brings much more burst, damage, and CC that vanilla Neco just doesn't have. However, if you don't have HoT, this Necro build is the best you can run.

A little hard to give up the Reaper shroud, but necro is in such a good place right now that even non-elite gets a good recommendation!
