I’m fairly new to the necromancer. I have a Lv.15 necromancer and was wondering how I should start building him since I’m starting to get kind of clobbered by mobs now.

The common builds are for power and condition builds.

Ascii.9726 has a decent build to play with i liked just not my overall play style.

If you’re soloing, life siphon builds with minions are very safe and effective, they’re just awful for everything else.
In pvp they can work when AI doesn’t bug out.

Don’t use minions. Use a scepter/dagger(focus) for conditions or dagger/warhorn for power/crit builds. Take a staff on the second slot. If you like seeing tons of enemies dot to their death, go with conditions. if you like a ton of burst and sustain and like to use death shroud a lot, use power/crit build.

Staff is very useful for events and long-ranged combat for vets and bosses mostly.

scepter/dagger + staff condition build is crazy good. i’m only lvl 10 so i have no idea how it goes later but i just had this crazy encounter and this weapon combi + epidemic and corrosive poison cloud completely reaffirmed my belief that necromancer are just freaking awesome. so my encounter was at queensdale at the champion boar. There was just a mesmer and a guardian and me and we were all just lvl 10. The guard was pretty confident about it so he told us go and jumped in. so i did the standard combo with staff throwing all marks that switching to scep/dag and throwing out 2 and 5 then auto attacking. At about 3/4 health a veteran boar appeared and since the guard was busy with the champ i took the initiative to slap it with all my staff marks and it came for me. With some positioning i managed to keep it close to the champ and started spamming my 2 utilities, epidemic was crazy good in this case with the mesmer and guard throwing confusion and burning to match my bleeds and poison and the veteran died pretty fast.
When the champ had about 1/4 bar left, the wasp queen decided to show up, at this point the guardian said, we’re kittened but we fought the kittenhing. The guardian kept the boar busy while the mesmer and i took turns kiting the queen wasp, she would throw illusions at it to keep it busy for a bit and when they were shattered i stepped in with DS on and held her back for a bit. Similarly to the vet boar we lured the 2 champs together so we could hit em both and between the conditions we were stuffing on em the champ boar died soon after and the wasp queen alone was ezmode so yeah conditomancer is an awesome way to play, alone you can take on vets and maybe champs with the cripple, blind and chill in you weapon skill sets but it really shines in stuff like DE bosses where there are ppl tossing in all those extra conditions that you do not have and you can take advantage of this using epidemic or scep skill 3, this is something i have never done before on any of my other characters and it was felt pretty good for 3 lvl 10s to manage to take down 2 champs that was at our lvl
