  • quickness uptime


  • Notice with spite all shroud skills do power damage and provide might stacks.
  • All wells are unblockable, provide quickness(when using chronomancer rune) and protection and leech opponents for hp.
  • When using soul reaping staff marks are unblockable and being in shroud gives crit chance and ferocity.
  • Being in shroud as scourge is defined as when using skill- Desert Shroud. When this is activated so is Spiteful Spirit(if using spite) or Death Perception(if soul reaping).
  • Use utilities and rez skills(including Ritual of life) to support your team while positioning yourself in a manner as to avoid enemy teams burst- useful hint kite when using staff and then go on node when you have enough shroud to burst opponents
  • Make sure to set up burst- as in axe's Ghastly Claws- with as many as possible modifier as follows- Quickness(from chronomancer's rune) and/or Shroud effects(from spite or soul reaping)


  • D/p thief
  • Heavy Condition Pressure

This Build is Very strong in team battles, amazing burst with good siphon from the wells. Rune of the sanctuary Makes the build like a tank and when being focused it helps with the added pressure.

Using dagger on the Off-Hand helps with the Condi removal.

The staff helps keeping people on there toes With some CC.

Great build if played correctly!

Works, but it's weaker and less popular than condi scourge and power reaper.

decent and clean build that could be popular if you have the motivation to try new things. main difference between this and power reaper is more of an iq advantage where-as reaper with it's whole reaper shroud gimic seems pretty basic. slightly more narrow options compared to condi scourge, which can just spam condis and be successful. basically you have to land your burst(axe2) and position yourself cleverly to get rezzes. making this one spec unique and kindof mellow to play, like I said it's kindof a hi-iq spec. while strong it doesn't exceed expectations nor does it really fall below any expectations

Hi, I have tried this build in unranked and have to say that I love it!

It comes with suprisingly high burst while offering a solid amount of team support (protection, heal, boon corruption and last but not least the huge amount of combofields).

I play it with sactuary rune and well of blood, because the combinations gains you unbelievable sustainment, while sharing most of it with your team mates. If you "spamm" your wells on a node you can easily defend it vs +1 fights until help arrives to finish them off.

Compared to Reaper it feels a bit more dynamic, because you dont focus on "the one and only cooldown"

All in all, I can highly recommend to give this build a try! It's really fun to play, and I'll give it a try in ranked soon. Thanks for sharing it with us.


high AoE burst

good team support (AoE Cleansing and AoE healing)

good bunker potential compared to its high burst dmg


not very mobile (like most nekro builds)

weak against ranged burst
