Overview

The Reaper specialization builds on Necromancer's natural survivability with and traits like . Add as essentially a second healing skill - with three targets inside of its generous 600 range, it heals for almost as much as 's active - and you have a build that is extremely good at sustaining itself regardless of group quality while giving up very little in the way of DPS. This build also takes advantage of several easy or passive ways to apply Chilled Chilled in order to get the most out of the budget-friendly and offers a beginner-friendly starting rotation, with the ability to gradually step up complexity and damage as the player becomes more familiar with the content and the build. Like most Power builds, it falls off at extemely high levels of play, but performs well in all story and open world content, as well as Tier 1-3 Fractals.

Very good build, I liked it a lot, and as long you're willing to fight, it will have a lot of self sustain and damage. If you're farming for mats, minion is better as you can fram and move. But this is really good otherwise.
