Hello everyone! I'm new to the forums as of a few weeks ago but this will be my first post. I'm going to talk about my experiences with the Necromancer/Warrior combination. I have had alot of fun with this class and find it extremely useful PvP, however it can also preform almost equally as well in PvM. Its true strength's lie in its life stealing and huge damage capabilities although you cannot treat this class like a warrior primary. Necromancer armour has a fairly weak defence so using this combination will mean your character is fragile. This means this character requires a unique play style. Usually if I am about to enter in to a big mob I will lay down 2 or 3 life siphons, run in and then reapply as soon as they wear off. This helps to ensure a flow of health constantly whether the monk is focusing on me or not. I think this combination is more effective then the Warrior/Necromancer configuration because it provides you with more energy and the ability to use necromancer runes. You need that energy and stat points to use your skills to there full potential and ultimately to be successful. Note that this is just the way that I play.
- Huge Damage with Blood Magic and Weapon Skills
- Life Steal
- Strong in PvP
- Powerful in PvM
- Low Armour
- Needs Monk to use full potential in PvM
- Skillful Play Required
Life Siphon: Essential in PvP, set up 2 or 3 and you can begin to act like a warrior. This spell can be cancelled.
Vampiric Touch: Very useful skill, at 8 Blood Magic you steal and damage 50 health. This skill ignores armour level.
Endure Pain: 90 Life at 0 tactics. Can be used as a last minute heal and combined with sprint.
Sprint: Useful because damage with accumulate faster on your low armour and you will need to escape.
Healing Signet: Heal!
For Great Justice: Adrenaline skills charge twice as fast. If you plan on using weapons this is an important skill.
Two Weapon Skills
Blood Magic: 12, crucial in keeping you alive.
Weapon Skill: 12, damage you'll need it.
Tactics: 3, In my opinion more useful then soul reaping. I use tactics based skills very often so for my build I chose to place my extra points here.
Hope this helped somebody, and forgive me if this is general knowledge now. I'm new!
