    Default Dom/WL/Necro 22/28/16 - It actually works...I think

    I'm tired of playing a Chlorolock all the time.
    It's a solid pvp build, but it's focus is healing (which isn't bad) and sometimes you just want to melt some faces.

    I messed with a Lock/Necro/Chloro build that was doing great for me, but I still wanted to work some domi in.
    I have given life to another Frankenstein of a build.
    Is it viable? Well I actually did test this one in the field and 1v1 I couldn't be beaten. 2v1 was more risky but still doable with CC. 3v1 was a toss of the dice on which classes I was facing.

    http://rift.zam.com/en/stc.html?t=1z...x0uksqM.xkfd0z (I call it the Necrolockinator)

    Classic Warmancer with some Domi thrown in.
    I know it doesn't reach high in any of the souls, but for what it does give you I think that makes up for some of the higher (and longer CD) 'hail mary' spells...such as Neddra's Essence.

    Soooo..necro gives some buff purging, plus a small AoE and the whole point of going 16 in Necro, Soul Purge.
    Warlock gives all the goodies up to Warlock Armor. I threw in Shadow Life as my oh $@%! button and Dark Fury increased to 2 seconds.
    This in turn counters the fact you don't have Death's Edict from Domi, which really is just Dark Fury (+1 more second) and Wither mixed together (-2 seconds on the snare).

    All that gives 4 instant cast attacks, 3 being DoTs. Haunting Pain provides another DoT if you feel like waiting the 2 sec cast time, but I found stacking this with the other 3 DoTs was especially delicious.
    Toss in SP and your target is melted.

    Unless of course you don't Storm Shackle them first, purge off a few buffs, silence them, and then laugh.
    The build still retains some decent AoE with DS and Graverot, or Grasping Void for the nice AoE snare.
    The biggest gem is Deny. This spell is just so win!

    Basically this build is in response to every other pvp build I tried that didn't include EITHER necro/chloro for self healing and warlock for instant mana infusions during combat.
    I tried the SC/Domi build but I kept running out of mana too fast. Pyro/Domi had too much downtime between casting.
    Every new build I try, I keep going back to something that has either lock, chloro, or dom in it.
    Since chloro wasn't going to help with increased damage on this build, necro was the only other choice.

    I'm sure this can be tweaked further, but for what I threw together it does a nice job holding it's own.

    You don't.
    Blame Trion for that. We basically have to waste a soul slot for either 0 AM or Pyro just to get Flicker while Warriors get one in just about every soul they spec.

    Even when I was running my lock/necro/chloro build I didn't have a break free either and I still topped the dmg often in WF's.

    In a world (Trion's World to be precise) where half the abilities you use cause some form of CC and your target is immune to CC after being CC'ed only twice; Break Free becomes overrated.

    The passives from AM are as the OP would say "delicious". 15% Spell Damage for 5 points + Detaunt is just win.

    Detaunt is actually useless as a warlock.

    I was enjoying a hard-to-find constructive mage build post until the obligatory 'warriors get one wahhh' part that pops up in almost every mage post.

    Shame really, I was liking this.

    Sorry that you dislike the truth.
    Doesn't change the test build I posted any.

    Dom is pointless without Traitorous and Split.

    I did not know Detaunt worked like that. I had heard even Warlock Armor broke it.

    My apologies.

    That completely changes a lot of my 1V1 encounters.

    I just tested it. No, they don't. Only direct actions break Detaunt.

    If dots don't break it then I'm bringing back AM! I always assumed that my dots would break it!


    Regarding OPs build it sounds nice and definitely something I will try when I have some dollar to train skills.

    Curious why you said Deny is the real gem???

    Also in the WL you seem to have oddly split the +HP and +SCrit souls - surely better to go all SCrit than a 2% HP boost (or vice versa i.e. max one rather than split?)

    Also whats the point in putting points into pet dmg in necro as you don't get the zealot so is negligible - wouldn't it be better to level plague bolt?

    Yeah, I just killed a marksman rogue so easily because I was taking half damage the entire 1V1 while he was dying to full-damage DOTs.
