Looks a bit "off" with the incoming tragedy for Maelstrom weapons, but I don't care - I'm gonna get flawless on my Stamcro even before that, really don't care about farming new "perfected" weapons tbf.
I've had Flawlesss on two toons only prior to this, and that's pretty long ago now. On a full run as werewolf (stamplar) wearing Vicious Ophidian, Vengeance Leech and Troll King. And on a StamDK with same gear.
SO! Any suggestions for gear and skills for an orc Stamina Necromancer?
I'm used to having a bit low damage and more survivability in VMA, but I thought I should try and do it a bit differently this time. I'm thinking like Vicious Ophidian and Two-Fanged Snake, or VO and Briarheart (love that set). I'm not at all sure of monster set. I always carry Velidreth, Stormfist and Selene on that character, as well as a Maelstrom and Dragonstar bow. Only have bow/dw skills leveled btw.
Skills I'm considering are: Ruinous Scythe (over like any Flurry morph, little less damage but good heals and AOE), Whirling Blades, Beast Trap, Camo Hunter and Silver Shards or Poison Skull for ranged attacks (which would be best? Always have problems on Rink of Frozen Blood...). Ultimate: Pestilence Colossus.
For backbar I consider skipping Poison Injection altogether (if not using DSA bow) and having Caltrops instead (for resistance debuff and snare, the damage sucks - I know!) Endless Hail, Consuming Trap, Skeletal Archer and Vigor. Ultimate: Ravenous Goliath(?). I usually have bow ulti or necro resurrect ulti there, as an ulti for bosses when it's too chaotic and I can't reach/target them that easy, or to resurrect dead ones in tricky situations.
I've tried this Consuming Trap skills out a bit, and I'm a total sucker for it. Perfect crutch skill. It's like literally infinite sustain as long as there's trash to kill, the damage of it isn't too bad either - that's why I figure I can go VO/TFS and still be able to have a surplus of sustain and heals. I know Detonating SIphon for example would be a lot better for damage than Caltrops too, but I really like the snare, and it feels like the Fracture debuff really makes a difference.
So what's the best easy mode Stamcro setup!? Am I even leaning in the right direction?
