In Guild Wars 1 my main character was a Necromancer. In that game necros had some pretty amazing builds that could be used in just about every area of the game. In Guild Wars 2 I’ve slowly been leveling my necro alt and after watching this video and build, it just might be my next character to 80.
IamOneIamLegion has been posting very beefy guides for the necromancers and he’s come up with a very interesting build which he calls the Ultimate Hybrid Build. This build focuses on doing both power damage and condition damage with plenty of AoE and group play to boot. Yep, it pretty much does it all.
While the video is über long, clocking in at just under 80 minutes, he’s done a wonderful job of documenting everything about the build. There’s no guessing why a certain trait is used, or a particular utility skill is on the bar with this one. He’s also done the viewers a favor by providing a table of contents! If you want to skip to a particular part of the guide this is very handy.
I know I’ll be giving it a whirl on my necro and look forward to that sweet, sweet damage. Here’s a link to the build if you just want the nitty gritty (celestial is recommended for rings, earrings, and necklace but were not available on the build site).
