FAQ:
Q: Why Shrouded Daggers?
A: On Fire Dragon Hard mode, if you are called to help kill the little Fire Attronachs, the best way is to cleave them down, while staying in your assigned stacks. Since DW deals considerably more damage than Bow, its preferable that you use a build that can range down the adds and still be melee. Shrouded is the best choice because of the cleave and the damage involved.

Q: Why Lava Soup?
A: Orc and necromancer health passives make this the go to food to use.

Q:Why 2H?
A: Because the Ice and Gold boss of vSS have considerable add phases, because the necromancer passives in execute make DW passives less attractive AND because 2H is closer in damage to DW this patch, 2H becomes the ideal choice for the Ice and Golden Dragon HM fights in vSS.

Q: Why no Venom Skull?
A: Dropping Venom Skull from the rotation minimized the number of bar swaps to 2 per rotation, significantly speeding things up. The increased DoT uptime, combine with the fact that Whirling Blades overtakes Triple Empowered Venom Skull at 32% and Reverse Slice overtakes the triple empowered Venom Skull at 40% made it an easy choice. Additionally it allows a flex spot for skills such as Vigor or Necrotic Potency.

Q: Why Necrotic Potency?
A: Its an amazing skill to use when running trials with heavy add phases. The ultimate return allows you to increase your dps and more importantly the groups dps (Because of more frequent drops of the Attro Ultimate), which makes a significant difference.

    Just wanted to post what seems to be a consensus on the Stam Necromancer as of Week 1 PTS. I DID NOT come up with this, I am just posting it for anyone who seems interested.

    Race:

    Orc

    Attributes:

    All in Magicka

    typo?
    Raising floors and lower ceilings by zos standards has created an iron maiden.
    No matter how well you played,when the game is over,the king and pawn go back in the same box.
    Be careful what you ask for from zo$, you always get punished.
    Call me toxic,your the one being slowly poisoned by greed.

    Wearing two stamina trial sets that both give minor slayer (redundant) is really going to annoy my OCD. I am sure it's BIS with that major slayer bonus, just annoying. Haha

    How would a khajiit would do in place of Orc? The crit synergy is there and I believe khajiit also has the HP to use lava soup
