    Default Necro-Warlock Build

    Hi all,

    I'm looking for a suitable necromancer and warlock build for solo activities, but cannot seem to find a guide detailing what build I should be using. Currently I am using 33 necro and 43 warlock but I'm not sure how viable this is. Furthermore, I am free to play so harbinger is not an option, although I am open to any other decent solo builds that are different to necromancer and warlock.

    Thanks in advance to anyone that can help

    Farm multiple elites in greenscale crater with this no problem.
    Has multiple aoe
    decent st dps with void barrage-persist/conflux combo
    and multiple healing abilities
    defensive cooldown, fear for really bad pulls

    And if you time it right you can pull your dots off at the last second and tape another mob for chain pulling.

    For maximum dps go Necro/Elem for better survivability go Necro/Chloro. Necro/Lock is ok, but Elementalist works better with the Necro tree since it REALLY beefs up your pets hit points and both you and your pets damage. You get more from Elem than from Lock imho.

    Yeah and be sure to get the Elementalist crystal and *not* the Necro one. Beefs up dmg more. That is, if you decide to put points in Ele which I suggest is a good idea. Crystalline Missles hit harder than Plague Bolt.

    For a deep Necro build that is not true, people need to learn to stop looking solely at tooltips and actually apply in-game bonuses to spells...

    With 5 stacks of Deathly Calling (which are almost always up on the target) Plague Bolt has two 10% damage modifiers and one 50% damage modifier. The base damage for PB and CM becomes:

    PB = 1178 * 1.1 * 1.1 * 1.5 = 2138
    CM = 1964

    For any full Necro spec it is a slight DPS increase to spam Plague Bolt and only use Crystalline Missiles to refresh Velocity.

    Also if you are using Lich Form (which any deep Necro build should) then the Necro crystal is better than the Ele crystal.

    Alright thanks for your replies guys

    I might try the necro ele combination, could anyone suggest a build? Not very good when it comes to making one myself unfortunately

    everytime I have tested plague bolt at 5 stacks of deathly calling vs crystalline missiles, crystalline missiles has won, not by much but it deals more damage than plague bolt

    and that is testing on the pts in the dummy foundry with all buffs up
