GW2. WvW Build. Condition Necromancer Roaming Build. Core Necromancer World vs World.
Last Update: October 2023
This build also called the “Terrormancer” is a sturdy condition build with boon removal to ensure it can land its fears and then stack the enemy up with conditions while they are disabled. It supports allies by consuming conditions off of them and transferring them back to the enemy. Even though it is a survivable build, it can be easily focused, so it keeps its distance using spectral skills to fear enemies away and reposition.
Having many condition cleanses and transfers while also a ton of weakness makes it very survivable against any damage type. It can live long enough until it whittles enemies down and when they are out of cooldowns land a long fear chain combo to finish them off.
Poke with staff until enemies get closer to you. Use the fear mark when they get closer and swap to Scepter to pressure with Dagger 5 weakness and Scepter 2 Cripples. When enemies have plenty of conditions use Scepter 3 for many stacks of torment. When enemies jump on you go in shroud for the weakening shroud and immediately use Tainted Shackles. Follow up with a Dark Path and if they dodge, immediately use Doom to fear them. Fill in the gaps with Dhuumfire auto attacks in shroud.
Interchange between the Terror and Path of Corruption trait on the fly depending on who you are facing. Enemies with more stability and boons will avoid fears entirely making that trait useless. While Path of Corruption might do less burst damage to squishy targets, it can pressure tanky targets more and cover conditions with corrupted boons.
