I dun rl think so anyway its however each necro playing and how skilled he is.
Really getting sick of these kinds of posts.
A skilled player behind a horrible build is still a skilled player behind a horrible build.
A skilled player behind a strong builds is still a skilled player behind a strong build.
Skill of the player is also defined by his reasoning, if a player is choosing to use a horrible build, he is more than likely not a skilled player.
Now GW2 and Anet has said that you can create a play style for yourself with every profession. Yes you can, but if your using a horrible build/play style your still hurting all those around you.
So since this is in the WvW section and my previous experience that pertains to this topic is - 5+ years of DAoC RvR and Beta/Live of GA's AvA map control, lets get down to the basics of WvW:
Melee vs Ranged
Small Skirmishes - Melee can excel given you are going up against equal or lesser numbers and you have the right support to allow you to get on the ranged players. This however also means that if you go up against unequal numbers Melee quickly diminishes in effectiveness as more numbers = more control. The first targets of this control will be those who have to get into melee range.
Big Skirmishes - Melee can only excel if you out number your opponents and there is enough going/close quarters to the point that reaching melee distance won't leave you out in the open.
TL;DR - Do you see soldiers in war trying to melee their aggressors? No you see them use range alternatives.
Now as far as Necro's -
1. You have Epidemic, the best spread condi utility in the game, it has a short CD and can cover a great radius.
2. You have access to ranged Wells in which you can cover/hit multiple enemies with
3. You are the strongest condition applicators in all professions with a massive array of cover condi's (staff) let alone Scepter/Dagger or Scepter/Focus
Large scale PvP is more about AoE than Single target burst and even LESS about melee.
Most melee are "door" bashers or man siege.
So why would you play a profession in the one way they are extremely not effective esp in WvW?
You are asking for best pvp wvw build yet your arguing for practically the worst.
