Ok, so I got out of Istan and now I am throwing together my build, I decided not to go SS/Curses route and here's what I came up with:

Angorodon's Gaze (http://gw.gamependium.com/tools/skills/show/1212)
Steal 59 Health from target foe. If you are suffering from a Condition, you gain 12 Energy.

Blood Drinker (http://gw.gamependium.com/tools/skills/show/551)
If your Health is above 50%, you begin Bleeding for 10 seconds. Steal up to 53 Health from target foe.

Deathly Chill (http://gw.gamependium.com/tools/skills/show/247)
Target foe is struck for 41 cold damage. If that foe's health is above 50%, you deal an additional 41 shadow damage.

Putrid Bile (http://gw.gamependium.com/tools/skills/show/1219)
For 17 seconds, target foe suffers -3 Health degeneration. If that foe dies while under the effects of this Hex, all nearby foes take 73 damage.

Putrid Explosion (http://gw.gamependium.com/tools/skills/show/275)
The corpse nearest your target explodes, sending out a shockwave that deals 101 damage to nearby foes.

Icy Veins {Elite} (http://gw.gamependium.com/tools/skills/show/558)
Target foe is struck for 90 cold damage. For 35 seconds, if target foe dies all nearby foes are struck for 110 cold damage.

Signet of Lost Souls (http://gw.gamependium.com/tools/skills/show/996)
If target foe is below 50% Health, you gain 100 Health and 10 Energy.

Strip Enchantment (http://gw.gamependium.com/tools/skills/show/287)
Remove one 2 enchantments from target foe. If an enchantment is removed, you steal 49 Health.


Death - 12
SR ---- 15
Blood --11


Attributes are not confirmed yet, still playing with it.
This is for PvE, any constructive advice is welcome.

Hmmz... You better drop the Blood Drinker - Angorodon's Gaze combination. It is nice, but there's better stuff in PvE. If you want to make a non-SS/MM build; then go full blood or full death; that works better.

Ya, I wasn't sure how the combo would work out in actual play. If you leave suggestions, please give replacements or ways to remedy what you are trying to correct, not just " get rid of this".
Ditching those 2 leaves no reason for blood, so I'm going to go all Death.
Think I will throw in Signet of Sorrow and Bitter Chill for now. Thanks

Try using Virulence in accordance with Icy Veins for a spammable high dmg attack

Also, switch attributes to between soul reaping and death magic (perhaps even Curses, just for enfeebling blood and barbs)

Also consider the following skills:

- Virulence (fast, spammable skill for necro)
- Rising Bile
- Taste of Pain (Self heal)
- Enfeebling Blood (make life easier for your party)
- Barbs (bosses)
- Mark of Pain (make killing faster)
- Rotting Flesh (If you rather spend 9 more energy than sacrifice 10% health from enfeebling blood)

These are just some suggestions I hope were helpful

Can't use 2 elites at the same time....Virulance is 15 sec recharge, Icy Veins is 5



Also, switch attributes to between soul reaping and death magic (perhaps even Curses, just for enfeebling blood and barbs)

Of course I will change attributes by dropping blood, i haven't found Enfeebling Blood to be all that great(maybe for HM elite areas), unless combined with Oppressive Gaze, usually have more non-physical damage dealers so Barbs is not a major party helper.

These are just some suggestions I hope were helpful

Virulance at 15 sec recharge isn't all that spammable, Rising Bile takes time to deal it's damage-might give it a shot, but prefer instant damage, MoP is an ok skill if I speced into Curses, Taste of Pain is alright, but I have SoLS to provide a bit of self-healing if needed with the added benefit of providing a bit of energy.

I'm sorry I didn't mean Virulence.

Meant: Necrosis :D which is pve-only skill.

And i always felt enfeebling blood was better than angorodon's gaze, but that's just me

Your attributes are spread too thin over the 3 (Blood, SR, Death). If you have Icy Veins already (which is a good elite) I would go for a more Death magic approach (drop the blood magic skills, as offensive blood magic is expensive and weak). Your on the right track, just need to make some minor adjustments.

Attributes:
SR: 12 + 1 (13)
Death: 12 + 1 + 1/2/3 (depending on what you feel comfortable with health wise)

Icy Veins
Putrid Bile
Rising Bile
Putrid Explosion (only if no MM in the party)
Well of Suffering (again if no MM in the party)
Deathly Swarm
Deathly Chill
Signet of Lost Souls/Rez

Its Basically a non-MM (minion master) death build. The Icy Veins, Putrid Bile, Rising Bile prove a nice AoE spike when the first foe dies, followed by Putrid Explosion for another spike.
