Usage

General

  • While this build can only have 1 active Shade at a time,
    still has 3 charges which means it can be used several times to trigger their other, trait related effects.
  • All Shade skills (F1-F5 by default) also trigger their effects around the caster, but they do not stack - if someone is in range of both the Scourge and a Shade the skills still won't hit twice.
  • All Shade skills proc
    .
  • Dagger auto attacks and staff marks will the the primary source of Life Force.

Support

  • Blood Magic traits and Scourge mechanics make this build exceptionally good at reviving allies:
    • triggers
      , which restores both normal and downed health for all allies around you. On activation this will also teleport downed people to you. Channeling isn't interrupted when you begin to rez manually (pressing F).
    • procs a Well that heals and revives.
    • cancels the regular downstate HP degeneration.
  • Applying barrier removes conditions.

The time of support necro is upon us.

Exceptional rez power (when you're not the first one to die, that is) and a bit of party support with barriers and condi removals, but necro is taken for the damage and other builds do that better.
