For anyone who’s ever struggled with survival in GW2, this is your answer. Ranged attacks combined with minions who tank for you. So much self-healing you can even stand in bad at times. Just make sure you don’t develop the bad habit of not dodging, it’s easy to do because of the incredible sustain!

A solid, easy to play Scourge build that doesn't have to worry as much about enemy aggro thanks to its minions.

This is a great build, very tolerable for new necro players. You can steam-rolled champions without too much a scratch. Don't expect decent DPS and you'll have great fun. A must-try for minion lovers.

Tried this build, worked well for someone who loves the minion's. Not the top build but definitely new player friendly. Took down a lvl 80 champ solo without hitting 80% hp.
