GW2. Raid Build. Condition Scourge. DPS Necromancer PvE.
Last Update: September 2023
The Condition Curses Scourge is a DPS necromancer build with ranged damage potential and support for allies with barrier sharing. It can maintain its damage while under pressure which makes it great for kiting mechanics as well.
Role: DPS Kiter
Blood is Power applies long duration conditions on your target and yourself, but Desert Shroud (F5) with the Plague Sending trait will transfer those conditions to the target.
Always place Manifest Sand Shade (F1) on top of the boss and on party members to spread the support to allies and to hit targets with your shade skills. You want to have at least one shade out at all times to get the condition duration bonus. Your character also counts as a shade, so you can support nearby allies by standing near them and put a shade on top of the boss to damage it.
Dhuumfire will burn enemies that are hit with any of the F1-5 skills, but the burning has an internal cooldown. Time the shade skills every few seconds to give out burning but do not deplete your life force low enough that you cannot use the F5 and F2 off cooldown. Besides the F1, the shade skills have no cast time so use them during the cast of your Scepter and Torch weapon skills. Swap to Warhorn only when CC is needed.
