Magicka Necromancer Stage 4 Vampire Ultimate Group Support
Magicka Necromancer Stage 4 Vampire PvE group support build. The Best of Both.
This build is all about keeping simmering active for as long as possible while healing your team and out putting a tonne of damage.
Activate simmering frenzy and apply hots spirit guardian and or radiating regen. Front bar swap for damage rotation.
When needed back bar swap for heals and shield. Be aware that back bar simmering frenzy will cost more than front bar so make sure you swap quickly after you apply heals and shield
Shield will increase you healing output and received for 6 seconds with Naga Shaman kit and should be used once simmering starts taking a beating on your health.
Use exhilarating drain to fill your ultimate bar.
You should aim is to build ultimate as quick as possible as swarming scion will increase uptime of simmering frenzy longer as well as increase damage and healing output.
Vampire Lord's Set
When it comes to keeping the uptime of simmering frenzy, having the Vampire Lord's is a go to. It will also reduce the cost of all your vampire abilities by a further 20% so everything which is great. The down sides of stage 4 is negated with the self heal you'll be getting from the Ring of the Pale order
The 2, 3 and 4 bonuses are a good all rounder too
Have 2 slots on the front bar weapon and 3 others share either in jewelry or armour
The Naga Shaman is a craftable set and I would recommend light. It is a decent back bar set as the 5 set bonus will remain activated when you switch to the front bar.
The 2 3 and 4 set bonus all work nicely with the build. This is our defensive set and it also helps us to cast some huge heals on our group. When full activated you're out putting 12% extra healing to your group as well as receiveing an extra 12% which is massive when you're relying on those big heals to keep you alive.
An alternative is to run The Clever Alchemist Set.
The Ring of the Pale Order
This really is an overpowered ring when it comes to solo content. In group content it's not so desireable as you can't be healed unless you are the one doing the healing.
For this build it works more than fine as we're taking that healing slot up. Keep an eye on you health bar when simmering frenzy is active and make sure to toggle it and you should be fine.
I've chosen Valkyn Skoria as it adds a spell penetration and a deecnt AOE attack which all helps to the self heal.
It's not essential to the build and you could switch this to your suit your playstyle.
Degeneration Decent dot, major sorcery buff and also mages guild passives. You could switch with exhilarating drain if you wanted a cheaper heal and ult gen on the front bar.
Arterial Burst, Very cheap single target spammable. Will one shot adds when simmering is on the end of its uptime and your under 50% hp
Mystic siphon +3% damage passive active, magicka regen and aoe damage
Mage light Crit passive and magicka bonus.
Avid boneyard, Resistant reduction, aoe damage and synergy.
Swarming scion, You get huge sustain and massive damage with this ultimate. Great for an on shit button too.
Spirit Guardian, 10% damage reduction and a 16 sec heal over time. Uptime all the time
Ult builder and top up heal if you’re close to ultimate and simmering is hurting.
Heal your team and soak up the cost of simmering frenzy. Scales with the spell damage increase from simmering so hots are greater than single target heals.
The focus of the build. Vampire lord set reduces the starting cost to the 1100’s. Turn it on before combat and build to start fights with big damage. Turn on and turn off to reset the cost when it gets too high
Harness magic, A better option the dampen magic as it offers magicka recovery. Can be used as an oh shit button but also into increase the healing output of needed.
Res your allies with a banfAnimated Blast bones for AoE res and huge damage! kaboom!
