Scourge - Blood Magic Support
Note: Please note that builds will default to plain icons, these may not be as accurate. We apologize for the inconvenience.
- This build focuses on full support, utilizing Transfusion, Barrier and Life from Death to provide constant sustain under AOE pressure.
- Nourishing Ashes If Life Force generation is an issue.
- Shamans for extra Vitality/Shroud at the cost of Healing Power and Toughness
- Minstrels for increased support and sustain at the cost of damage
- This build relies on Transfusion in order to be effective, with the priority being on downed control and movement. Ensure good positioning where you are able to teleport allies to safety.
- Transfusion is tied to Garish Pillar. Once activated it will heal players in a 600 aoe around the player (not around the shade) for ~1000 each pulse, and teleport any down players to the necromancer. This effect lasts for 9 seconds on a 12 second cool down and should be prioritized for life force usage, as it is one of the most powerful healing abilities in the game.
- Barrier should be used when expecting allies to take damage, it will mitigate critical strike damage, and provide some condition clear through Abrasive Grit.
- Staff auto attacks are your best friend. They may not do much damage, but they maintain your life force.
- Use Mark of Blood , Chilblains, and Reaper's Mark to generate additional life force, and pressure on the enemy.
- Putrid Mark usage should be more careful, try to save it to dump conditions if when you are under heavy condition pressure.
- Interrupt key skills with the fear of Reaper's Mark.
- Putrid Curse Is a single target boon corrupt to fill in dowtime on skills.
- Harrowing Wave Generates significant life force, and is a great skill to use on downed players.
- 24px Oppressive Collapse Is an interrupt and knockdown. Use it to snare escaping players or interrupt channeled skills.
- Your shade skills activate around you as well as all active shades.
- All of your shade skills will proc the strike of Manifest Sand Shade
- Shroud traits proc as if the shade skills counted as that shroud skill. For instance, Transfusion is activated by Garish Pillar. Traits like Life from Death that proc on going in/out of shroud proc on Desert Shroud.
