Previously running Carrion. I stay alive pretty good with it but it doesn’t excel in either power/condition build.

So I went for Rabid build for more condition specs. I love the damage but the huge toughness gets me so much aggro that my current skill level (and lack of vigor) can’t stay alive very well.

If I go zerker/power instead. I’ll sure loose some toughness and aggro, but i’ll get hit harder. Also may have to stay melee more. I wonder if it’ll help my situation or worse.

Or can anyone provide me any tips to improve my survivability in Rabid?? Now I just kite, cripple, freeze, regen, blind well, heal, panic F1.

It really depends on the trait set up you are running on your necro. For a zerker build I would often run 30/0/10/0/30. The problem on this set up is even with death shroud you are really really glassy.

You can also run 30/0/10/30/0 on zerker set. The key on this trait set up is to maximize the use of life siphoning on dagger and in using wells to replenish hp.

If you opt in using rabid set and prefer doing conditions, you’d have to always keep on using chills and cripples and just kite.

if you are struggling to stay alive with high toughness, the answer is not getting beserker gear. you will see why if you do so. I have a full rabbid set up and a full zerk set up and I can tank fairly well and dont go down much at all (if ever) in pve. on my zerk set up, small dmg hurts. so you have to be careful.

practice staying alive before going zerk as it will get twice as hard when you have no toughness or vitality.

I use 30/0/20/20/0 on my zerk set and am still hard to kill. maybe try something like that out.

I recommend Knight’s Armor, Necro has a high health pool as is.

The first thing I want to ask is where are you playing wvwvw, pvp, or pve? I would also encourage you to check out SOACGaming podcasts as well as some of the great videos put out by Nemesis and CHIPS for beginners.

The biggest part about playing a Necromancer is learning positioning and how to effectively weave DS into your rotation.
