i thought Dagger/Focus is dps/root/dispell and Axe/Warhorn is for kiting (cripple) and dazing

and the well of suffer is the only utility wich can increase that burst damage from that necro, am i right?

that would help but it would be countered and then some if he faced people that didnt stand in his well or were good. definitely not a tpvp build.

It's actually way easier to counter him when he has the Warhorn and Axe together than when he has Dagger and Warhorn together. The daze is 2 seconds, 3 seconds with the rune of the mesmer and if the person doesn't have any stun breakers you could basically create a makeshift stun with the immob and daze.

I've used my version of the build in quite a few free tournies and it works pretty well. Bursting a target comes quite easy.

The daze does really hurt when it lands, but honestly it needs more damage with having to sacrifice so much survivability. It's the way the class is built I think, you NEED LF to survive as a crit-power build. And when you are in LF its easy to counter you if you stay for too long.

I feel if they gave us more damage we'd become the next FOTM. I made what I consider to be the highest damaging squishy build for the necro and we do quite a bit of damage on just that build alone and the build was focused on being ranged because of the squishiness. When I swapped to the dagger, it became a different beast entirely.

And when talking about LF, it's all about how you play within the fight and what the situation calls for. If I'm on low health and I have full LF, I'm going to stay in it for the full duration because I know, if I pop-out, I'm dead.

Well i use DS for increasing my burst, the 15th point in Curses gains you 20% crit-chance, if u watch in the video, you will see that before i burst i switch very fast to DS and back. I think Dagger-Necro needs crit for doing burst!
But it's different, there are 10 seconds DS cooldown, you have to know if your're in trouble or not.

And thank you guys for advising me Dagger/Warhorn, its  a huge difference with that daze - they cant port (Mesmers or Thiefs) away from my Wells how great is that. :)

The smart ones will port because eles, mesmers and thieves have stun breaker ports. You just have to catch them after they've used it.

Yeah, but how can i force someone to use a stun breaker if i need all skills that could daze/root/dps my target? I mean they won't use stun breaker because of my damage, they'll use it for my daze or root... wich i need to burst... any idea?

That's something you'll have to figure out yourself man. I have a couple of ideas but, the joy is in the discovery so I'll let you get this one on your own.

Im curious on why you opt for reapers protection, if you are running well of corruption why not go for a 0/30/20/20/0 and get a reduced cooldown on the well plus an added bit of heal not that it matter too much, but still?

This guide seems awfully outdated; any plans for an update?
