Core Necromancer PvP Build

GW2. Core Necromancer PvP Build. 2022.


The Condition Core Necromancer is a DPS that specializes more in disruption and debilitation than pure pressure. While it does have great damage over time, it is better at sustained fights by putting out tons of weakness to counter power classes, corrupting boons of tankier classes, and consuming or transferring back the conditions of those classes. While this is a safe build, it may still be focused if not positioned well.

Basic Rotations: Staff 2/3/4/5 > Scepter 2/3 > Dagger 5 > Shroud 2/5/3 > Shroud 111 > Scepter 2/3 > Staff 23

Essentially use all weapon skills before going into shroud, prioritize Dagger 4 for transfering conditions, and always use Shroud 2 and 5 whenever possible first.

Power Variant

The Core Power Necromancer is a like a ranged Blood Reaper, it is much safer but does less AoE and burst damage. However, it has really long fear durations which it can use with quickness to focus down single targets. Essentially this is more of a Roamer than a DPS.

Basic Rotations: Staff 2/3/4/5 > Axe 2 > Warhorn 4/5 > Shroud 5/3 > Shroud 111 > Axe 2 > Staff 2

Staff 5 > Spectral Ring > Lich Form (Quickness Lich)

Essentially use all weapon skills before going into shroud, and spam 1 in shroud after landing fear for maximum damage.

  1. Hey there! I was wondering if there is a power version like this for wvw core necro??

  2. I’m trying to understand why we use Wizard over something like Carrion. Why take precision on a primarily condition build?

    • Read the Curses traits, you want precision so you can put more conditions from critical, bleed and weakness specifically, while at same time Precision is directly more Condition Damage.
