I currently play NB and have been using a magicka NB build, not a single person has found a solid counter or has beaten me (overall) in 1v1
Im looking for people to fight or people to think of a possible counter.
<3

0 points in HP
High stam and magicka recovery with high overall magicka
I use Sword/Board- Funnel health, ambush,impale,mass hysteria, suprise attack ultimate is incapacitating strike
resto staff -harness magicka, rapid regen, healingward, cripple, shadow image.

I would like people to actual meet me ingame and fight me before making assumptions

    A solid Templar or DK dueling spec would give you a run for your money. The spec you described is pretty much the NB FOTM dueling and roaming setup. It is good, but not anything unbeatable.

    I have countered a build VERY similar to yours before, wasn't easy.
    Bar One [Sword/Board]: Unstable Flame - Reverb Bash - Flame Lash - Invasion - Reflect
    Bar Two [Resto]: Igneous Shield - Cinder Storm - Harness Magicka - Immovable - GDB

    I did it on my DK, fight started out with the NB using the other morph of shades and then hitting me with cripple and ambush - surprise attack - incap strike - impale, when he ran low on magicka he basically shadow cloaked away and healed up behind a rock or something, then resto heavied me to get magicka back. After about 2-3min of kiting and healing to learn his rotation I shield charged him right as he ambushed, whip, unstable flame, swapped bars, reverb bash to negate healing by 40%, light attack with my sword for another heal debuff, then i stayed on the offensive with invasion, whip, unstable, killed him pretty quickly once I went on the offensive.

    To counter this build you really just have to be able to heal through the burst 3-4 times, maybe longer, depends on the build's sustain. Then go on the offensive RIGHT as they use ambush, cause it drops block. As for the fight I was in, I had immovable up 24/7 so fear was void. I'd try to fight ya in game but my laptop blew up so I have no way of attempting to beat you :disappointed:

    Edit: I also reflected his funnel health and crippling grasp to screw him over, this was also a duel, so we both started with 100% everything and food. Neither of us had the emp HP buff either, I don't think so anyway. Was a great fight, you just gotta be careful when fighting Burst-Blades as I call them. Drop block for a second and you end up very dead, very quick.

    Many Dragonknights have done this and havent been able to defeat me, most of the ones to ever have a chance are slightly more tanky. I would like to meet ingame and fight if you want ;P

    yup, it's a strong build. i'd say counters include healing debuff (healing ward effected twice) and offensive builds running shields + immovable (you'll eat through a perma blocker's stamina really quick and then there's your fear, too) that try to force you into staying on resto staff a lot.

    In general I'd say stamina templars and cshock mages with immovable can do realtively well egainst your build.

    if you're on EU I would like to duel you. I'm not in Arena so /t would be great!

    I've encountered this build and it's not fun to play against. Your character stands around uncontrollable because they time fear just right. Who wants to play a game where you can't play?

    Apparently most of you are uneducated... the current NB FOTM build that you see Sypher and others using is played best, and created by @Araxleon.... If im not mistaken.

    This build been around longer than that. Arax is just a good player.
