I hate to say this but the necro is so terribly weak at least in WvW. I have zero fear of them. They may have a nice variety of AoE but if it isn't particularly effective does it count? This goes for the engineer as well. I am not dogging the people who play those classes but the classes need a buff before they should be considered for best AoE.

Guess you haven't come across a good one yet - there are quite a few videos of necromancer rocking the WvW - both in 1 v 1 battles with powermancer specs and in big fights with AoE specs.

My experience has been the same - if used correctly your skills as an individual necromancer player can make a significant difference in a battle. It is just not as straightforward a class as some others.

Speaking of having no fear of classes - I have no fear of warriors, thieves, mesmers or any glass cannon burst build, since because of my toughness + vitality based spec I can suck up a ton of dmg and yet melt their faces with my wells, so perhaps it is your spec that makes necromancers so helpless against you ? What spec are you usually running ?

EDIT: I have been focusing on necromancers ever since BWE1 so maybe they are a bit hard to get the hang of if you are not too experienced with them.

My vote definitely goes to necro - within the staff you have an AoE interrupt (fear), chill, posion, bleeding, regeneration, DD+condition removal. All of that within 1200 range and can be traited to double their radius from 120 to 240, which makes it absolutely huge. Their downside is that they do not affect downed players for some reason.

The wells are also wonderful skills, two of them deal direct dmg with a side effect, and if traited can be used at a maximum range of 900.

If you are a condition necromancer - you will love epidemic - it will spread the conditions from one foe to the others around him, allowing you to transfer your stacks from one target to the ones adjacent to it within 600 radius. The range of this skill is, again, 1200 and has only 15 seconds cd.

In my list, the elementalist comes really close second.

Thanks :) I am using:

Shoulders: Deathly Bull's Mantle
Chest: Exalted Coat
Legs: Exalted Leggings
Gloves: Orr Karma gloves (the default skin - havent played around with them too much yet)
Boots: Feathered Boots - you can't see them on the picture but they fit the armor really well.

Here is my guy. I want through A TON of different light sets since release, and I cant seem to find one that keeps me satisfied with my looks for a long time. This is the one I am running around with right now.

I have to vote for Eir as well. The beauty of the human characters is a bit too tamed.
