So I have leveled my necro up to 80, I tend not to spend a lot to time face-in-dirt and mobs are dying smoothly enough. But I still have the suspicion that I have no clue what the hell I am doing. Especially when it comes to my build and my gear. I have a vague idea that I like conditions (even though I am not adamant on that point) and that I want to have both AoE and single-target capabilities. But other than that it is pretty much a blur. I have, simply put, not gotten around to really learn my profession yet.
Here is my usual setup:
1) Axe+Focus for single target, death shroud motor and some support.
2) Staff for AoE, long range (lowish) dps and support.
Signet of the Locust (constant speed boost yay)
Well of Darkness (sometimes take another well here)
Take Root [E]
Traits (now this is where it becomes very iffy..)
30 Spite (I, X and XI)
5 Curses (had a thought there, but should really up the critical chance for max effect. Was thinking to actually make this my main trait line though)
10 Death (II for unblockable marks)
10 Blood (kinda useless for me at the low points. Guess scrap or max?)
15 Soul Reaping (spectral armor and more life force for more Death Shroud goodness. II)
(link to build calculator)
I know this is not really optimal, but have a hard time deciding on what to do...
And then there is the gear. I wont list what I got since it is not even remotely thought out nor maxed out. I have been aiming for condition damage, power and precision for the most part though. There was some formula on how to build attributes right? I am also wondering if there are any "Must Haves" in the runes department. I am not too shabby at dodging out of the way of stuff etc, so I do think I can afford to be a bit glasscannony with the gear (also necros already have big health pool and the death shroud as escape).
(This is the part where you guys tear my necro a new one. )
(Oh, and I thought this could also be a nice thread for general general PvE building advice, so if anyone else have any follow-up questions feel free to butt in! )
