September Update and Guess What?

Necromancer Nerf. Screw this game so hard; that's the last straw, one less elite I can use out of a list of maybe 2 that are worth their salt left.

use the elites of your secondary 8D I'd use echo with arcane echo or something.

Gotta find a different class to love comrade.
Spread the affection to other characters.

Hope, it is the quintessential human delusion,
simultaneously the source of our greatest strength, and our greatest weakness.

Outside of gimmick builds, you use a primary class for two reasons:
  • Primary attribute
  • Runes in your main attributes
That makes it inefficient to be a Necromancer and require points shoved into other things for an elite.

It's hard to when you've played the same main character for 4 years.

Echo doesn't require any points into mesmer attributes to be 100% effective =p I use mesmer as a secondary just for echo and arcane echo. Then I don't know what to cast 3 times and I die.

Wait...

D:

Been looking at acquiring Factions. The assassin class looks very promising, and might very well fit my tricky/stalky style of play I've had in, say, ALL THE GAMES I'VE PLAYED SO FAR.

I know how Echo and Arcane Echo work. In the necromancer skill lines, there are no skills worth echoing, so that is useless. Furthermore, there are no elites worth arcane echoing at the 15en cost it has, so that is useless as well. It's not like an elementalist where you could cast two SH's or SF's and totally fry people. Necs don't get that kind of functionality. (Remember that hexes don't stack and that I don't give a shit about MM/SS builds, where you might consider AEcho)

Also, remember that it's a team game despite your wildest desires. A hard res will go a long way.
