Maybe it never coalesced into something brilliant. Maybe it never made it off the ground floor. Maybe we based our better ideas off of it. Basic builds are anywhere from downright bad to just shy of being good enough to showcase. These builds share the widest ratings and can lead to wildly differing levels of success.

Designed for:


A generally tough and flexible build for the Reaper Necro that makes use of Might, Vuln, boon corrupts, condi transfers and constant healing to put serious pressure on the enemy.

+1200 Power +900 Toughness +900 Vitality


If you want, you can replace staff with Scepter and Knife, knife for offhand is vital, you need the condi transfer.


Essentially, what this build does, is... The following:

+900 vitality

+900 toughness

+2125 power

+1000 condition damage (Including max sigil stacks and max Might stacks)

100% potential crit chance, 50% guaranteed crit in shroud, no precision needed

3 healing incomes, "Your Soul Is Mine!", Signet of the Locust (which corrupts boons on enemies in an AOE) and Spiteful Renewal (which has a 5 second cooldown, and also keeps you condi free when enemy is at or below 25% health, it's brilliant)

2 condi transfers, one of which corrupts boons on enemies.

2 boon corrupts.

2 damage reduction abilities, one 50% damage reduction lasting for 25 seconds, and one 33% damage reduction lasting for 6 seconds should your health fall below 50% which also helps with lifeforce regen.

1 boon purge, Chill of Death.

Plenty of Might gain.

Good Vulnerability inflict.

Highly Resistant to movement impairing effects.

Enemies have a hard time keeping you in place, so your almost pure melee approach, wont be easily countered.

It attacks fast, it hits hard, and can tank for freaking days... Though it has 2 phases.


You're gonna notice that your lifeforce regen is fairly pathetic, your main lifeforce generation (AND critical hit chance) will come from Greatsword skill 3 and "your soul is mine!", but, since you're tough, you wont worry much, besides, half lifeforce lasts for a VERY LONG TIME, thanks to your toughness... So, relax. Keep conditions off you, and heal yourself regularly, do this and your enemies will just not get any boon buildup and you dont get condi'd to death either... Enemy is gonna notice you getting seriously badass from this. :3

Little tip, start every battle with "Rise!" if you can, it'll make sure you gain maximum toughness out of your battles because you out-tank the burst from your enemy popping all his cooldowns, the longer you survive, the more damage you do to your enemy.

PS: If you work up your corruption sigil, you can do really well with the staff too.


Make sure you maintain a decent stack of vuln on your enemy, and never stop attacking, you gain might even when you're not hitting any enemies, once you got a decent vuln stack, use executioner's scythe, followed by.... SPIN TO WIN!  :D Works best if you have max corruption stacks, the posion from spin to win will do serious damage if you can manage that. ;) Your vuln stacks increaes your critical hit chance, which increases the frequency of your Greatsword sigils proccing, giving you nearly Berserker gear DPS. :3

Have fun!

All of the damage increasing stats are increased thanks to the vulnerability you inflict, in addition, you don't tolerate enemies having boons, and neither do you tolerate having conditions on yourself, because you're just not responsible enough to take the consequences from your actions, best give the consequences to someone else, so that you can go spank some ass! ;D


The only thing this build is missing is ferocity, but hey, no build is perfect. :3
