I would like some critiquing of my build/playstyle -
The main purposes I am going for with this build are survivability, healing, and condition support. I've been a tank in every MMO I have ever played, and can't seem to shake the fascination (originally started a necro in a bid to move to dps, but found out that "tanking" was feasible and jumped back on the wagon -- my girlfriend apparently saw this coming).
My gear is a half cleric and half carrion, stat-wise. In encounters with three or fewer enemies, I tend to stick with dagger/focus for more focused (punny!) combat. Once the enemies are over three in count, I generally will switch over to staff and dish out AOE goodness.
During tough encounters, my general MO is to dish out as much damage as possible in Lich Form, popping out when it expires or when my health is under half. After which I'll top off my health and go with dagger/focus or staff depending on the conditions listed above (will favor staff for group healing/condition removal if there are many allies around, however). Wells are deployed liberally and often.
If things get sticky, or all of my AOE skills are on CD, I'll pop into DS, AOE siphon, use the bleed/fear, and wait in DS until my healing Well is off CD or my life force falls below ~25% (like to keep some life force in reserve for those OH SH*T moments).
Also, in group situations, my high +heal seems to help a lot when laying down the healing Well and regen Mark.
So far, I am pretty happy with the profession, but would like to know if there's anything that could use any tightening up. Thanks!
