-= Introduction =-

There are 2 different skill setups depending on what I am doing (Support and Solo Farmer). If I am a support member in a party, I have skills that compliment the entire party and leave the healing up to the monks. If I am solo farming, being a tanker is important and in addition, I must be able to kill the first group of monsters reasonably quick without taking too much damage so I can animate my first batch of minions.

-= Stats =-

Death Magic: 11 + 2
Soul Reaping: 10 + ?
Earth Magic: 10

2. Death Nova (5,2,0): For 30 seconds, if target ally dies, Death Nova deals 90 damage and inflicts poison for 15 seconds.
3. Infuse Condition (10,1,60): For the next 54 seconds, whenever you receive a condition, that condition is transfered to your closest minion instead.
